Affiliate Marketing-The Easiest Way to Make Money Online

Affiliate marketing is the easiest way to make money online. The sales page is the key that allows you to make the money. Driving visitors to your link which leads to the sales page can be done through article marketing. All of this can be done for free. Let's find out how easy affiliate marketing really is.

1 - Keyword or Keyphrase Research

Using your keyword research tool, search for low competition keywords. Those are keywords that have at least 300 searches a month. They also should have less than 5000 competing pages in Google (when entered between quotation marks like this "keyword"). Try to find 10 keywords related to the same topic.

Hint: If you have no idea of which market to target, start by checking popular phrases like: how to, purchase, get rid of, help, cure, tips, etc.

2 -Promote a product

Go to and find a product related to your topic. Choose one that pays at least $20. Write down your affiliate link or save it in a text file on your computer.

3 - How good is your writing?

Write an informative article (400 words) focused on each of your keywords. Put your keyword in the title and in the first and last paragraph of your article. Also sprinkle it throughout your copy. Throw in a few other keywords related to your topic. This will help you rank well.

Most important, write a great bio box that will make people want to learn more and click on the link to your blog. Put your keyword in your bio box as an anchor text link to your blog.

4 – Do you want a blog.

More and more article directories will not let you put your affiliate link in your bio box. So your blog is going to be your landing page. The idea here is to put up a simple blog that will presell (not sell) your product and make people click on your Clickbank affiliate link to go to the sales page.

Hint: set up a blog for every product you promote and give it a keyword-focused name.

5 – Submit to article directories.

You will need to find article directories with a PR of 5 or more. These are the ones Google likes and it will help you get a first page ranking in the search engines and drive tons of free traffic to your blog.

Post one article a day on each article directory and do not post the exact same article to more than one directory.

Hint: Your best choice is You will need good quality articles, but it is the most powerful directory online. Alternatively you can use

6 – Rinse and repeat!

The more articles you submit, the more you will make money online. But every product is not going to be a winner. Some will do well, some will not. Once you write a money making article, it will generate residual income for months and maybe even years without ever costing you a single dime.
