Stating this in clearer terms means you should set up a top notch content affiliate website and refer people to the merchant site through your affiliate program.
- Planning: The greatest achievements came to fruition via insightful planning. Affiliate marketing is not different, planning here is very important even more than any other things. You must plan for the weeks ahead and even months. You should have plans on how much traffic you want to drive to your affiliate website and how much income you want to garner through your affiliate program.

Nevertheless, the most powerful for newbie affiliates are article marketing and Facebook marketing. In article marketing, you just need to do some keyword research on your niche and write some quality articles based on your search results.

However, if you don’t know about keyword research and SEO, then Facebook marketing is the best method for you to generate traffic. You can create fun pages, be a participant in related groups’ discussion, and increase your friends list all in the bid to refer people to your affiliate website.
