Niche affiliate marketing started after 1990 when Amazon started an "associate program" that pays commission to those users who refer other people to buy books form Amazon website. Still this program is running successfully and includes thousands of different products since Amazon extended its business by selling other products too. Amazon still has great name in this field and could be great place to start but today, most online stores have developed their own affiliate programs for their respective niches.

Things to keep in mind to Successful Niche Affiliate Marketing

Like conventional businesses, affiliate marketing also needs proper planning to start. Here you can find few basic steps to start online affiliate marketing.

1. Pick your main market - When working to find your market, you may have a number of options. You should either choose a topic of your interest or go with proficiency that you have professional experience. But if you can work on any topic then go for the market that has good number of audience.
