5 Steps to Start Amazon Affiliate Niche Site
In my previous articles, I’ve already described how to start blogs and websites and promote them on different online platforms to generate the passive income you need in your life.
This article is a summary of all those articles you have to read before starting out.
So get ready for a long learning session.
Research Low Competition and High Volume Niche
Niche is the most important word in any kind of business.
NICHE can make or break your business.
Picking a highly competitive niche can destroy your online business in no time.
Just think, if some good sellers are already selling those things why is someone willing to buy the same product from you?
On the other hand, if you pick a niche that isn’t too competitive but the demand is also low, it is again is not the right niche for you.
Entering the low-demand market is just like entering into a highly competitive market.
The result will be zero…
So, I always tell people, pick the right niche that can give you benefits.
The process is to discover a low competition-high demand niche.

Get Domain Name and Web hosting
After researching the right niche, the 2nd step is getting the domain name and web hosting space for your affiliate site.
This step is crucial because choosing the right web hosting provider is as important as a niche.
If you compromise your web hosting space to save some pennies, you would face the slow loading website problem and poor customer support.
So I always recommend a reliable web hosting provider.
Don’t go for cheap web hosting providers otherwise, you cannot rank on Google search as Google always prefer fast-loading websites in their SERP.
You can go for Bluehost Shared Hosting which is fairly cheap as well as reliable.
