You may have heard of ClickBank, one of the oldest and most popular affiliate networks. A billion-dollar company, ClickBank specializes in digital products like e-books and software, as well as membership sites. If you are comfortable selling information and don’t want the management and administration hassles of “real” businesses, this may be a good starting point. Its commissions can be anywhere from 10% all the way to 75%.
I found the course extremely helpful especially as i am a beginner. Lisa is excellent at explaining which is important when you are starting out. She has made me understand the importance of finding the right niche and that to me is where most of us go wrong. I am extremely grateful for a course like this and would like to take this opportunity to thank you Lisa for creating a course that helps others! – Michelle
I think the most important thing to decide when you are just starting building your affiliate business from home is figuring out your niche. We all have special knowledge that can be shared with the world. Whether you can offer great parenting advice, explain to people how to rebuild a carb, or love watching sci-fi movies, no matter your interest, you have an expertise. Figuring out how that expertise applies to a market niche will not only give your brand authority and help you sell related products, but you’ll enjoy what you do every single day. I have a range of affiliate websites that delve into my different interests and expertise areas, so I’m always excited to get to work and share my knowledge with my audience.

If you have built up an email list, you could also promote your affiliate offers via email promotions. Just make sure you build up a relationship with your audience first instead of going for the hard sell straightaway. The emails you send out must contain your affiliate links to products so when your audience click through. the sale is attributed to you.

I would like to add that for information products, a lot of the time it’s pretty easy to rank for “information product review”. I recently did a review of a popular ebook that is a month long discipline program. I went about it by doing the actual program and documenting everything. At the end of the month I wrote up a 2700 word article summing up the whole experience.
