How do I get started as an affiliate? – JEBCommerce Question of the Week

JEBCommerce Question of the Week – How do I get started in affiliate marketing and make money online?

This week an old friend of mine asked me the following question: “We talked years ago about starting a retail business online and dropshipping.  I’m now in a place I want to get started making money online as an affiliate.  Where do you suggest I get started?”

That is a great question with a ton of opportunity.  In the video above I answer her as best I can.  I lay out three steps:

  • Start with what you are passionate about
  • Determine what you have expertise in
  • Then figure out a way to monetize it

There are so many different ways to get started in affiliate marketing, but the most successful affiliates start out with doing what they love doing.  I hope this helps.
