Affiliate marketing can be profitable if you know how to do it ‘right.’
Just like in any other fields, experience will build the skills. However, learning through trial and errors could cost you a lot of time on your end, so it is better that you learn from the experiences of others to make fast profits and avoid becoming “broke.”
Choose them wisely….
The best tip for success that I can give you is to choose your affiliate products smartly.
It is highly important that you promote only great product that people are looking to purchase. If you promote vague offers from unknown companies, chances are that you are going to fail, which could make you feel as if that affiliate marketing is only a ‘scam’ and it does not work.
That is so untrue.
If you do it properly, affiliate marketing can bring you tons of profits in no time.
If you have a bit of money to begin with and you want to make some money fast, you should focus on buying traffic to your website. When doing pay-per-click (PPC), always estimate how much you can afford to bid on keywords in order to generate enough profits at the end of the day. For example, if you spend $100 but make $99, then you lost the game. PPC, you see, is both an exact science and an art. Do not neglect both sides of the coin.
The ‘art’ is to find those highly searched keywords – keywords having high search volume all year around – that have little or no competition.
This is how you will be able to lower your bids, and make great profits as a result.
On the other hand, if a keyword has lots of competition, it will be very difficult on your part to master it and make money online. This is because “big players” in the industry definitely have better affiliate deals than you might have, so, they can afford to bid even more and still make more profits than you.
This is how affiliate programs actually work: big sharks of the industry (big money makers) will always be given additional incentives and bonuses, because it is a dream of every merchant to have someone motivated and clever to thrive their business.
Start Small & Focus on SEO
So, if you are just starting out to affiliate marketing, you better start small and focus all your energy on SEO rather than PPC
Although SEO takes a long time, it can be much cheaper than PPC, so just in case you fail, you will NOT lose that much…
According to a research, it has been found that sidebar banners on your website perform worse than in-article links, so, if you are not getting a high traffic volume, you will NOT be making much from your banners.

Product Reviews Convert Better…
On the other hand, it has been found that the reviews of products and services convert best. However, writing reviews can be ‘tricky’ as consumers are not stupid. You want to write your reviews as if you used the product and now you want to share that experience with the rest of the world.
Even better, if you can try all the products that you are promoting as an affiliate marketer, you will even find greater success, especially in the initial phase of your affiliate-marketing venture.
This is because people can feel you if you speak on your own experience.

Besides, if you own and use the products, you will also have the chance of taking pictures and putting original articles full of relevant pictures, which will also drive additional visitors to buy, therefore, making you tons of cash from commissions.
This ONE tip is probably the best tip that I wanted to share with you through this article.
