- Have a website/blog
While most successful affiliate marketers have a website or blog, you don't actually need one (although I'd recommend it)
- Choose a niche
Focus on niches when finding and promoting a product. If you already have a website or blog, that can be your niche.
- Research potential affiliate products and services
Those that fit in your niche or with your website.Don't simply choose a program for profit potential. Check out the program to insure it's quality and that it has a good reputation for taking care of its customers as well as its affiliates.
- Determine how you'll promote the affiliate products.
As mentioned, the easiest way is through a website or blog. Other successful affiliate marketers set up a squeeze page designed to build an email list, and then promote affiliate products to subscribers. Of course, you're list should provide other non-sales information as people don't want to be sold all the time.
Begin sharing your website, blog, squeeze page or affiliate links (f.e. social media)
- Because you're making money from home...
You need to look into making your business legal by checking out the business licensing and business laws in your area.

- To conclusion
There are "gurus" and programs that suggest affiliate marketing is a set-it-and-forget-it system to turn the Internet into a cash machine. While affiliate marketing can be done part-time, it's not automatic. It requires research and a plan. You have to know and understand your target market, and continue to do things to reach them so they can click on your affiliate links.
