5 Easy step to make money online with affiliate marketing

Hey, What’s up?
First, I would like to personally thank you for reading this article. I write this article because I know it will definitely help you! Not too long ago I was working at a 9-5 job, but I knew there was more to life than that. I wanted to make money online, be my own boss and live a life of freedom. Well, today I’m happy to say that I’ve achieved my goal. I’m now a full-time online entrepreneur and I make a living via the internet.

The good news is: This is possible for you too... If I can do it, you too can do it! The best way to make money online is with Affiliate Marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing basically means:
You promote a product/service using your own unique affiliate link and whenever a sale is made via that link you will get a commission for each sale.


John is selling an online course for $500 with a 50% affiliate commission. You promote John’s course with your own affiliate link and whenever a sale is made via your link, you will get a 50% commission i.e $250 per sale.

Why Affiliate Marketing?

  •  Easy to get started
  • Turn your hobby/passion into a successful online business
  • No previous experience required
  •  You don't need to have your own product
  •  Online passive income
  • Highly scalable

Just to name a few…

At the time of writing this I make approximately $1,000 to $2,000 USD (₹50,000 to ₹1,50,000 INR) every month online. I know this might seem like a lot to some of you and to others it might not seem like much. But the truth is, it has changed my life and I am able to live my life the way I want. I have the freedom to work when I want and from wherever I want! The strategies and steps that I am about to share with you in this article can literally change your life if you follow it and take action.

So, let's get into it...

STEP 1: Choose a highly profitable niche

The first step when getting started with affiliate marketing is to choose a niche.

When choosing your niche make sure it has a huge demand and high profit margins. Also, your niche should be something that you are interested in or are passionate about. Many people make the mistake of choosing a niche just because of high profit margins but they don’t personally enjoy it.

Remember the goal here is to do what you love and to also make money while doing it.

STEP 2: Choose an excellent product to promote

The second step is to find an excellent product to promote. The product that you are promoting should be something that your niche/audience will be interested in.


If you are in the “Dog Training” niche, you should promote a “How to train your dog – online course/ebook” instead of promoting “beauty products”.

STEP 3: Choose a traffic source/platform

The third step is to choose a traffic source or platform to promote your affiliate product & send people to your affiliate link.

It doesn’t matter how good the product is, if people do not see it. You need a constant stream of targeted people seeing your product/offer. This is how you make sales & affiliate commissions.

More traffic = more sales = more money for you. There are multiple traffic sources and platforms to choose from, example: Facebook, Instagram, Youtube etc.

Other than this you can also start a blog and write articles etc. As a beginner you should stick to 1 traffic source until you are generating at least 1 sale per day.

After this, if required you can branch out into other traffic sources/platforms.

STEP 4: Add value & build your brand

The fourth step is to add value and build your brand. You can do this by using a process called “Content Marketing”.

Content marketing basically means that you create free content that your niche/audience is interested in.


If you are in the “Dog Training” niche, you can make free videos on Youtube about “How to train your dog” etc. By adding value and providing free content to your audience, you are actually building trust and a loyal following of engaged fans. The more your audience relate to and trust you, the higher chance that they will buy a product/service that you recommend i.e your affiliate product.

STEP 5: Build an automated sales 


The fifth step is to build an automated sales funnel which is capable of making you money while you sleep.

An automated sales funnel basically nurtures leads and turns them into sales.
Remember? More sales = more commissions = more money for you. There are 3 main things you will need to build an automated sales funnel:

OptIn/Squeeze page:

This is a single page which is highly focused on only 1 action i.e you want to convert visitors into leads (collect email addresses).

Email marketing platform:

This is a software (free & paid options available) that is used to build and save a list of all the email addresses you have collected using the optin page.

Email sales funnel/automation:

Within your email marketing platform, you will have an option to create and setup automated email sequences that are designed to nurture your leads and convert them into sales.

And those are The 5 Steps To Making Money With Affiliate Marketing.

Congratulations… What’s next?

Congratulations for making it this far! You are already taking action and investing in yourself.

Most people only dream about success but don’t take action, so you are already one step closer to success!

“Take action! An inch of movement will bring you closer to your goals than a mile of intention”.
