The reason I’m adding this article now, is that a lot of the information I’ve been posting here is outdated, or in some cases, no longer true.
To help you, I will go over everything briefly from the moment you sign up for a website until you want to reach the top of the affiliate marketing pyramid.
There are 5 main steps:
- Set up your website.

Before you start setting up affiliate marketing, you need to have a website.
This will require you to set up your website, which is where I’ll focus the rest of this article.
But before that, you should also decide on a niche.
What is a niche?
A niche is where you want to focus your website marketing efforts. It’s the place your audience is in.
Different niches are called:
- Business niches.
- Entrepreneurial niches.
- Niche markets.
Each niche is a different market with a different audience.
But before we can start setting up our affiliate marketing website, we need to choose a niche.
Before we even start thinking about topics, topics, topics…
You need to know what your audience is interested in.
It’s a simple question, right?
So, let’s go through a few steps to understand this.
Step 1: Determine your target audience.
You can’t sell to everyone. You need to narrow your target audience down.
Your target audience is the people you want to sell to.
And the best way to narrow down your target audience is by looking at what your competition is doing.
Here’s how you can go about it:
- Step 2: Look at your competitors.
This is the first step in understanding the niche.
To do this, you need to find out what your competitors are doing.
You can do this by looking at their website.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Look at the competitor’s homepage.
- Look at the top 20 results.
- Look at their top content.
- Go back a few posts and look at the content they shared.
This will help you figure out what they’re doing best, and the problems that they’re solving.
Once you see what they’re doing, you can go back and figure out what the problems are that your audience has.
Once you’ve figured out what your competitors are doing, you can use that to help you figure out what your audience is interested in.
Step 3: Determine your problems
Now that you know what your competitors are doing, you can go back to your own website and figure out what problems your audience has.
To do this, you need to look at your audience.
To figure out what your audience likes, you should ask them.
Here’s how you can do this:
- Ask your existing customers.
- Search through your email database.
- Search your social media following.
Ask your existing customers what their problems are.
This is important because you want to figure out what your target audience are interested in.
Once you figure out what they’re interested in, you can go back and figure out what you’ll need to do to solve those problems.
Step 4: Decide your niche
Now that you’ve figured out what your audience likes, you need to figure out what’s next.
Where do they want to go? What problems do they have?
Once you’ve figured out what your audience likes, it’s time to figure out what your niche is.
To do this, you need to think about the problems that your audience has.
Then, you need to figure out how to solve those problems.
This is where you will need to look at the industry.
To figure out what your niche is, you need to figure out the problem that your audience wants to solve.
Let’s take a look at how you can do this:

To look at the problems that your competitors are solving, you need to go back and look at your competitor’s website.
To do that, you need to go to your competitor’s website, go to the website’s homepage, and look at the top 20 results.
You can do this by looking at the top 20 results for their competitor’s website in Google.
For example, let’s say your competitor has a blog that’s focused on selling accounting software.
You can go to their competitor’s website, and click on the blog tab.
Look at the top 20 results.
Then, look at the posts that they shared.
You can even go back and look at their top content to see what the posts were about.
This is why we said go back a few posts.
Go back a few posts, and look at their content.
If you see a post that you liked, you can click on it and read the post.
When you look at the top content, you’ll see that they’re solving the problem that their audience is struggling with.
If you’re looking at the top 20 results, you’ll see that they’re solving the problem that your audience is struggling with.

Once you’ve found what problems your audience has, it’s time to find out how they solve those problems.
What’s the takeaway?
You want your audience to solve their problems.
