Affiliate Marketing For Beginners 2021

How To Get Started

Adrian Brambila


For today’s post, I sat down beside Ben Harris at the ClickBank headquarters in Boise, Idaho. We compiled our knowledge on how to help out anybody who wants to get into affiliate marketing.

I first ran into Ben about a year and a half ago. He used to work at ClickFunnels and was the head of the affiliate program there. Ben came across me as one of the top affiliates, checked out my social media stats, and we’ve been friends since!

Follow along as Ben answers some of the most commonly asked questions about affiliate marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

“Affiliate marketing is essentially having your own custom link on the internet that you can use to promote someone else’s product or service. In turn, you get paid via commission. Somebody once explained affiliate marketing to me as one giant party. Your main job is to invite the people to the party. Once you get the people into the party, you know they are going to have a good time. All you have to do is hand out the invitations. When I heard it explained like this, affiliate marketing seemed so much more doable.”

How Do You Get Started?

“To get started, you have to focus on a niche, category, or area of interest that you’re into. Keep in mind your end goal and work backwards until you find products that are currently selling well. You can then look into whether you want to get started organically or if you want to start scaling with paid traffic.”

Do You Need a Website?

“In my opinion, no. With the way social media is blowing up right now, a website isn’t needed to make money from affiliate marketing. This is a great place to start.”

What Do You Need to Learn?

“I would learn the act and science behind affiliate marketing; it’s all about traffic and conversions. If you are spending money on ads, you need to know how to track that spending. You have to know your numbers and become analytical.”
