The Foundations – 20 Step Affiliate Game-Changer – Step 18

How to Build the Foundation of Your Affiliate Business

Knowing how to interpret the foundations into your business allows you to transfer it from a simple one-page website to a money-making machine. Knowledge of website design comes with practice.

However, once you have the basics of your affiliate website completed you can think about adding affiliate links. Learning problems solving and decision-making skills are how you gain momentum in increasing your online awareness.

Over time by incorporating the foundations into your planned niche and website construction you will become far more able to take on more tasks.

When Your Ready to Sell

When you have your website ready hosted and on search engines, you should be thinking about adding your website to Google Search Console and Google Analytics. This will collect data faster for you to view and make changes to your content if needed.

Just recently I built a mobile-friendly website from where I collected data from analytics to see if the website was mobile phone friendly. All 22 pages were fine.

In hindsight, I wouldn’t have known this information without placing the analytics code on my website to give me an accurate account of my website construction and marketing skills.

It’s not easy reading your analytics at the beginning when building the foundations of your business, however, there are thousands of YouTube videos that are there to guide you. Also, by reading the 20 Step Affiliate Marketing Game-Changer training you will learn a lot.

Having a data-driven approach eliminates time-consuming guesswork and enables you to learn, decide, and execute more efficiently. Learning the ropes of analytics is time-consuming but reflects much about what you need to know. Knowing Google Analytics is to understand the effects of marketing campaigns and how a site’s user experience impacts factors such as conversion and retention.

Learning Communication Skills from the Foundations

Communication towards customers is every affiliate marketer‘s dream. To have an email list is great, however, to sell the correct product to those that are interested is even better.

You can deliver a set of emails that persuades customers to perhaps watch one of your webinars to unleash the wonders behind your products. By building the foundations of your business and connecting to those that like your products is where it all starts.

Do you Have to Pay for Affiliate Marketing?

Tailoring Email & Leadership Skills

Affiliate marketing is free and easy to join: Most affiliate programs are free to join, and no experience is required in most cases. You only need to fill a signup form and begin to promote the offers.

Just join, promote, and earn. The truth is there are various platforms that require you to already have sales as one of their sellers, however, this is rare and most reach out to you if you have a website with at least 20 posts, reviews, or articles.

Easy management: All marketing tools and affiliate links are provided by the merchants (The Programs You Choose) so there is less worry about finding banners and links.

Most of all it’s free to use such tools to incorporate into your websites. Some merchants require you to create a username for your sales which also acts as your analytical method to view their dashboard for sales and it’s usually always free.

Success in affiliate marketing is about persistence and continuing nature. You can’t assume that your profit will always be the same if you once earned 300$ per day. However, at most, it’s free to start apart from a domain name and perhaps a server. I choose Wealthy Affiliate as it has everything needed to succeed.

Building Content for The Foundations to Add Links

Ho to be The Master at Building Online Foundations

As you build the foundations of your business take note of where all links are to be included. Remember to always solve problems within your content to attract customers.

By answering questions and building a rapport with customers you are answering their needs. There are various links needed to solve SEO problems such as internal links: Links that come from the website you are building and external links from websites outside of your own website.

The first step is to join an affiliate network and program to retrieve links then log in to Your affiliate dashboard and Locate the Links to add to your content. Copy and paste the HTML or direct link into your content and begin making sales.

Track the success of Your affiliate links in the dashboard. At first, you may not have any sales, however, given time and great content your sales should increase.

If you have built the foundation around your niche now is the time to go to your product review pages and add 2-3 affiliate links to each article.

I would recommend doing that at a rate of one article per day until you get them all done. Then as you add a product review article include your affiliate links right at the beginning.

Is Affiliate Marketing Worth It?

Affiliate marketing is only worth it if you can match the right product with your audience. While it’s recommended to choose a niche that you’re passionate about, paying attention to the demand for products in that niche is also important.

Knowing your niche reflects far more attention to how you create content from the know-how. If you master your niche, there is no reason why you can’t make a living from sales.

It’s not easy and let’s face it is anything, to begin with? It’s all about managing your time and coping with many hours of writing content. Always reflect on the things that work and those that don’t, moreover, learn from your mistakes.

If you choose the right training platform to unfold your niche, there is no reason for you to be earning within 6 months. Sounds a lot, doesn’t it? Believe me, time passes so quickly once you start writing.

  1. Hey thanks for this article!

    I was looking for something like this related to affiliate marketing, I’ve joined quite a few of them bit haven’t had the time to go over and include the links, I like the idea of including a few everyday so I think that’s what I’m going to do.

    At the moment I am also having trouble understanding how to read analysis but watching bids should give me a better idea.

    It sure isn’t easy but totally worth it once you start rolling!

    • Hi Sariyah,

      Thanks for commenting and let me help you a little. I suggest creating a Microsoft Advertising account and having a one on one live online chat with one of their trainers. It’s totally free and they spend as much time for free with you to open new doors to learning about bidding for keywords and Phrases. I took the training many times and it’s tough but I learned a lot for free. Thanks for Commenting.

  2. Hi Matthew

    Thanks for commenting and yes it’s all about learning and gaining wisdom as we grow as affiliate marketers. Google search console is a great tool along with Google Analytics to keep track of where our traffic is coming from.

  3. Hi. Thanks for this post. When I first started affiliate marketing, I was terrified of touching any buttons. I was terrified of inserting hyperlinks in my articles. I was clueless. The only thing I was good at was writing content. I’m a natural at that. But as far as the technical stuff goes, I was afraid. Forget about installing google analytics or google console! But you’re right. You have to start with the very basics first of building your website. And Wealthy affiliate has helped me do that. Thanks so much for your post and the section called how to change your life in 7 days.

    • Hi, Shalisha as always I am stoked to have people just like your comment here because I know that I am the same as you. I can write a book in two days. The Technicality side of things come later such as keyword research and also getting your website ranked. I can help you with all that knowing you are a WA member. My real passion here is to tell you this NEVER GIVE in. Just keep paving your way forward and learn from your mistakes. That’s what I did and now look at me (I feel Proud) and you will be given my advice. Much Love …. Stepehen

  5. I quite like the series / steps on foundations of becoming successful with affiliate marketing. I completely agree with you on Google Analytics…it is such a fabulous tool (for free) that provides so much information about what the customer does on our site.

    Within Google Analytics there is something called as Goals – I am sure you must be aware of this…with Goals you can literally track the customer behavior, affiliate link clicks, how much time he spent on a particular page etc. It is ideal if we are planning any kind of marketing campaign on our site.

    • Hi Satz

      Yes, the foundations through the use of data analysis is an added bonus to tracking our goals via Google analytics and Bing’s webmaster tool. Laying down foundations to drive sales is the true aspect of the game as stated in the 20 Step Affiliate Marketer Game – Changer training. Of course, there is SEO content writing that is important with most of the training we enter into to increase traffic. The key is to keep it simple and keep writing great content to lay down the foundations of our websites.
