Is it true that you can make enough money to sustain a family of four without any trouble simply by working on a home based business? If that is so, why then do 95% of affiliate marketers fail to do so? The 5 deadly sins of affiliate marketing revealed and how you could turn it around in an instant.

Asking What Should I sell?

            That is the wrong question to ask. Ask,Guest Posting what problem do I want to solve? You see, sometimes it is easy to just go for the products that have the highest gravity on Clickbank, but the truth is, the money goes to those who solve people's problems.

Two words, niche market. You must look for a group of people and accommodate to their needs. For instance, if you are into bodybuilding, you will realize that body-builders are never satisfied with their current workout routines. They are always looking for better routines that will guarantee results. You know the rest of the story; bring the product to the customer.

How do you do that? Have a website. This separates the serious from the casual marketers. Your website is your storefront on the Internet. Have high-quality content on a particular problem and recommend a product that will solve it. You must include the benefits of having that system with testimonials and reviews to see your conversion rates soar.

Your website must be focused on having high quality content that will get your readers coming for more in the future. But first, you must get them to find you. How? Simple! Get a free keyword tool like Good Keywords and start searching by first typing a general keyword like body-building and then narrowing your niche down to one of the related keywords like say, teen body-building.

To get traffic to your site, one of the fastest ways I recommend is to start an Adwords campaign that will be put up on content sites (and therefore more high quality traffic) which leads to your pages that have high quality content.

Many marketers only sell one affiliate product and they are happy with that. You have to follow through with your customers. Ask your customers for their reviews of the product and if they have other problems that need solving. Then, surprise them with yes; you know it, high quality content.

In so doing, you are separating yourself from the rest and building a rapport with your customers and you will be able to sell other related niche products to your existing customers. In addition, you can now get the reviews and pump it back to your storefront!

So, let us recap.

1) Find a niche market and solve their problems.

2) Have your own website that has high-quality and keyword focused content.

3) Have other products to sell to your customers in the back-end.

4) Surprise your customers with a free customers-only content in return for their reviews and testimonials of the products they bought.
