(2)Select your Market (Niche)
Again, research is necessary in order to select the correct market (niche) for you. Find a market that you know something about and, it would be a tremendous advantage to you if you had a passion for the particular market (niche). If you don’t know anything about the market then the proper research will get you where you need to be. Next you will find a product in that market (niche). Just make sure that the product you select has a high paying commission on sells.
This can happen only if you have a website or a blog.

Preselling is introducing your visitors to the product prior to them going to the Sales Copy. It is getting the customer excited and anxious about making the purchase, even before going to the merchant’s site.
(4) Follow-up with you customers
Create a newsletter, ezine or use email to keep in contact with customers. This is done in order to stay in touch with customers who have shown an interest but have not made the decision to purchase yet. This is called “relationship building”. Relationship building helps by continuing to show your customers that your site is the place to find relevant information.
Once you have started building your list you can use email marketing to stay in contact with your customers and when you promote another similar product you have your customer base.
