I’ll break down the entire affiliate marketing process into three steps:
Phase of investigation
The phase of content creation
The phase of content distribution
Step #2 will be easier if you concentrate on step #1, and step #3 will be easier if you concentrate on step #2.
Allow me to elaborate…
1. Do some research
Everything from picking a niche and assessing your rivals to creating a full-proof content strategy is covered in the research phase. The more comprehensive your strategy, the less time and work you’ll have to devote to content generation.
For example, I usually research everything and make a list of all the themes in Notion, which saves me a lot of time when generating material.
I’ve already planned out what I’ll do next.
You’re doing it wrong if you start looking for topics after you’ve finished the last one.
2. Content Development
Have you ever heard the phrase “content is king”? It’s absolutely real, believe me.
After you’ve created a solid content plan, follow the 80/20 rule.
Spend 80% of your time and effort on developing excellent content. And, because you put so much effort into step #2, content production, the process of content distribution will be simplified.
You won’t disagree that quality content necessitates fewer advertising, right?
However, if your content isn’t good, you’ll have to force it out.
3. Distribution of Content
The majority of people would tell you that content distribution is the most difficult component; however, I disagree. They are having difficulty since they did not put in enough effort during the research and content creation phases.
Because you put in so much effort in the previous two processes, your material will find its way with just a little prodding.
Isn’t it getting simpler now?
Last but not least:
Affiliate marketing puts your patience and perseverance to the test. It will take some time.
