Different Types of Affiliate Marketing Approach
There are quite a few different types of affiliate marketing approach. They also call it choosing a niche or niche market.
It is to choose something that you are interested in doing or you are capable of doing. If you don’t have any special skill, you can start learning from scratch while you slowly build your website.
Make sure that you are genuinely interested in the subject of your choice, otherwise it will be difficult if you have to do something which you don’t enjoy.
There are many places where you can find materials. The easiest one would be on the internet, also libraries and magazines. The website that you are going to build will be different base on what you choose to do. Let me give you some examples:-
You put up a blog to talk about your personal life, a hobby or an interest. You attract people who has similar interest to your site. You put on advertisement from the merchant whose product relating to the particular topic you have on your site.
2. Product Review
You review the products that you want to promote on your website. It could be camera, computer, tools or whatever you wanted to promote. You give your audience the report of your review, tell them how good or how bad the product is. You give a rating according to your own opinion.
3. Expect Advice
You teach your audience on how to do thing. For example, if your are a maths teacher, you could teacher your audience how to solve maths problem. Your put on maths book, online tuition course or other things like that to promote on your site.
You have to be good with what you do because people can tell if you are not good.
