Starting a home business as an affiliate marketer does make great sense but only if you do your homework beforehand.

Before you actually start working your Affiliate Marketing business there are a few things you need to consider and work out beforehand and in doing so you will considerably increase your chances of having success online.

What you need to consider

1) How Much Spare Time Do You Have. Now unless you are lucky enough to begin your business full time and don't have any kids or other commitments going on then you need to work out a weekly schedule and time that you can put aside solely to work your business.

Know when you will be free to focus solely on building and running your affiliate business and when you will not be disturbed by others and then stick to this schedule.

2) Where Will You Work. Most probably you will be working your business most of the time from home but where exactly will this be. Are you lucky enough to have an office space or will it be in the corner of the kitchen.

I began my affiliate business working from my bedroom which was fine during the day but at night it was a bit awkward as my partner would be in and out. Find a place where you can work undisturbed for most of the time.

3) Family Support. Now this one is not essential but it is certainly nice if you have the support of your family. Let them know that you are starting an Affiliate Marketing business and tell them a bit about how it all works.

Getting your family onside at the very start will make things easier as you progress and it will make them feel apart of it and who knows perhaps they may even want to help you.

4) How Much Do You Want To Earn. Get clear on what your income targets are. Know what you want to be earning after 3months,Guest Posting 6months and 1year.

If you exceed your expectations after 3 months then just revise the rest of the year but if you do not start off by knowing what you want to earn then you will never know if you are on track.

5) Know Your Why. When you start an Affiliate Marketing business or any other business for that matter you need to know WHY you are doing it. You need to know why you are are getting up earlier or working later or not going out this weekend.

Your WHY could be you want to be able to afford to put your kids in private school. Perhaps you want to be able to leave your job and work from home. Maybe your WHY is to retire your partner from that job they hate or take your whole family on a dream holiday.

Knowing your why will keep you going when you feel like giving up. Your why will help you get up earlier to work your business or when you are working late.

Please don't make the mistake of thinking your Why is just money, yes we all want more money but what is this money for, that is your WHY.
