Really quick, If you are new to the blog, a little about me. My name is Craig Beckta and I have been doing affiliate marketing for the last 15 years and I’ve simplified everything I have learned over the years into this one short free affiliate marketing course for beginners.

I use to charge hundreds of dollars for the secrets that I am sharing with you today, in this free affiliate marketing course. So why would I share these secrets with you for free?

So don’t make the mistake of not valuing the secrets, I about to share with you just because it is free affiliate marketing course for beginners.

I’ll break this formula into 5 simple steps and if you follow them by the end of this post you will have the foundation for a successful online affiliate marketing business that you can run from the comfort of your home.

Step 1: Choose one of these three hot markets that you are the most interested in. If you are more passionate about one of these three markets you will be more successful if you choose that niche market.


Here are the big top three markets where the majority of money is spent on the internet. One: Wealth, Two: Health, Three: Relationships. Each of those three markets have smaller sub niches within them for example. In the Wealth market it could be, making money online, affiliate marketing, crypto currency, investing.

For Health, it could be six pack abs, dieting, keto diet specifically, anti aging, anything that makes people look and feel better about themselves. In relationships it could be dating tips or how to improve your marriage.

Pick one niche market and a sub niche within that market that you are the most interested in and I’ll get into why that is important in a second.

Step 2: Zero in on your avatar and the more specific you can be the better. You have to think about what some of their pain points might be.

In the Wealth market, maybe they hate their day job, or maybe they want to get out of debt quickly. In the Health market maybe they are struggling to lose weight, or they want to look younger.

In the relationship niche maybe they want to improve the communication in their marriage. When you have a good idea of their pain points then you want to choose a gender and age of your avatar and speak to that one person in all of your marketing. More about that in a moment.


Step 3: Once you have chosen a market, and you have defined your perfect avatar then you will want to look for one core high ticket product that solves your avatar’s main problem. Affiliate marketing is about being in the solution business. You’ll see what I mean in a second.

Step 4: You need to set up a proper affiliate bridge funnel with an automated follow up email sequence with at least ten pre-written emails that go out automatically after someone subscribes to your email list.

Step 5: Is to create free valuable content that is related to your avatars core problem, that is what you’ll use to attract your perfect avatar who you can then refer to your high ticket affiliate product that you are promoting.

Now that you have an overview of the free affiliate marketing course. Let’s quickly break down what you need to do in order to get your new online affiliate marketing business up and running as quickly as possible for you.

And to make things easier for you, if you stick around until the end of this post I’ll give you access to a pre-built affiliate bridge funnel with everything you need to get up and running as quickly as possible, so stick around for that.


Ok, let’s quickly walk through an affiliate bridge funnel that you’ll use to promote your high ticket affiliate product. I should mention that you should also have two to three other affiliate programs with recurring revenue related to your core product that you can also promote as well in your affiliate email follow up sequence.

I’ll explain how it works in just a moment and it will become a little more clear for you. Here’s what an affiliate bridge funnels looks like, it is just a few simple webpages and that is it.  It’s really quite simple if you look at it, remember I’ll give you the secrets in this article that make it all work so make sure you read every word so you don’t miss any of the value bombs I’m about to share with you.

Let’s go back to your avatar and their pain points for a moment. What kind of free thing can you create that will help solve one of their key problems? Let’s say for example, you are in the affiliate marketing space and you create a short free traffic cheat sheet or checklist to help your prospects get more free traffic to their affiliate links.

It has to be something small and easy to consume and it has to appear to be valuable, so that your prospects can’t believe they are getting it for free. It is often referred to as a lead magnet or an opt-in bribe, where you give something away for free in exchange for your prospects email. That is why understanding your avatar and their pain points is super important.


Once you have your lead magnet which could be a cheat sheet, checklist, a free video. You then set up your lead capture page which re-directs to a bridge page after they subscribe to your email list.

The bridge page warms them up and transitions to the high ticket affiliate product you are promoting. 97% of the people will not buy the offer the first time you present it to them. They’ll need more information before they can make a decision if it is right for them or not.

That is where the email follow up series comes in because it allows you to deliver more valuable content to your subscriber and to build a relationship with them over time. People buy from people they know, like and trust so this follow up email series will help you to develop your relationship with your subscriber.

The first few emails should be a welcome email, telling them a little about yourself, and the next email or two should be a content email and then emails three through five would be back to your affiliate offer. It is a good idea not to just pitch in every email and stick to your core product for the first ten emails.

Then after they go through your initial automated email sequence you can add them to a broadcast email list where you send out a live email once or twice per week about different offers which would be your back end offers and also to tell them about any new free content you have created that week.

You should have affiliate links in your email and in your free content to these other offers as well. Now that you have a general idea of the strategy, let’s get a little more into the free content and the different places you can use to attract your perfect avatar.


Search traffic generally converts better than say a Facebook ad that targets a broad audience. If someone types something into Google which is the number one search engine online. Like “best diet to lose weight fast” and they see a blog post, or a YouTube video or Pinterest pin, then it signals that they are looking for a solution to a problem.

Let’s go over the top 6 places for you to attract targeted free traffic. Number 1 Google, you can create a blog post, with a lead magnet in the side bar or as a pop up box. Number 2: Youtube, you can create a Youtube channel specific to your niche.

Number 3: Tik Tok is super hot right now and it is probably the easiest place to get traffic and build a following. Number 4: Instagram is another way to get free traffic with image posts and video reels. Number 5: Facebook groups with organic posts are another good way.

Number 6: A Podcast. Great if you prefer talking over writing and you don’t feel like shooting videos. I know several people with very successful podcasts. Here is another bonus traffic source that works in some niches and that is Pinterest which I already briefly mentioned although their audience is mainly 80 percent women so keep that in mind.

Pick one traffic source to start with and then branch out with your marketing. Here is a strategy you should be using. You can repurpose your content to reach a wider audience and save yourself a ton of time. There are entire courses about this topic but I’ll give you the short version.


Here’s how it works, Step 1 You write a script for a video for Youtube for example and then you use the written script for a blog post or a podcast episode.

You then shoot a YouTube video and export it and upload it to Youtube and then embed the YouTube video on your blog to increase the time people spend on your blog. You can then also use the video as a content post on Facebook.

You can also edit the video down into several smaller videos for Tik Tok and Instagram reels. That way you get wider distribution of the same piece of content over several different platforms and it doesn’t take that much extra time on your part.

Now I know you may be thinking, you don’t know what type of content to create so, just think about what your perfect avatar would be searching for. Spend a week or two learning everything you can about that topic that would help solve their biggest problems and then start creating content about what you’ve just learned.

If you spend a week or two focused on finding solutions to your avatars biggest problems you will know more than 90 percent of the people out there and you will feel confident in the content you are creating.

That is why it is super important to understand who your avatar is and what they need help with.To be a successful affiliate marketer it is about 80% mindset and 20% effort. Your progress in the beginning will be slow but as time progresses you will start to grow your traffic, subscribers and followers.


Or you can be like everyone else and look for an easier way and just end up watching and reading other peoples content. Let me ask you a question, who do you think makes more money? Creators or consumers? Doers or dreamers?

I don’t want to lecture you but I think it is pretty obvious, once you start creating and putting content out there you’ll see things starting to work for you. Let’s talk for a moment about what types of products you should be promoting to a maximize your affiliate marketing sales.You should be sticking to digital information products and digital software products.

They both have larger profit margins, which means higher commissions for you and they both have to be purchased online versus in a store. So that makes it more likely for you to make an affiliate referral sale.

There are tons of different affiliate networks out there but if you are just starting out, you should only focus on one for now. If you stick with me until the end of the post I’ll share one affiliate program that pays you one thousand in commissions with you, so make sure you hang in for that.

One affiliate network you may be familiar with is Clickbank and I have been a top Clickbank seller and a top Clickbank affiliate and it is definitely a great affiliate network to find digital products in different niche markets.


I started on Clickbank way back in 2007 and today the network is larger than ever. What is great about it is you can count on getting paid regularly and there are some very smart marketers on the platform who know how to market products and they do a great job of converting prospects into sales.

Although it may not seem like it, I know copywriters who have written sales letters for marketers on Clickbank that start at ten grand a sales letter and go up from there. I’ve personally spent over forty thousand dollars hiring copywriters over the years, so make sure what ever offer you are promoting, that it has great sales copy.

Or you will end up wasting your time and effort trying to promote offers that don’t convert. Now here is a tip that will help you if you follow it. Pick one sub niche market, one core product, one traffic source and one funnel and email series to start. Then add a few related affiliate products later in your automated email sequence preferably products that pay you a recurring commission.

Focus on creating free valuable content on one platform to start and try using the content repurposing strategy I mentioned earlier in this post it will save you a ton of time. Spend any spare time you have refining your marketing, what I mean by that is you should be split testing your landing pages, create two different landing pages and see which one converts your prospects into subscribers better.


Here’s a link to the software I use to create funnels and it makes split testing your landing pages super simple. You should also be testing to make sure your emails end up in the primary tab of Gmail, instead of the promotions tab. You should also be monitoring your email open rates and moving people on your email list that are not engaged to another list called dis-engaged and send them specific emails in a sequence to try to re-engage them.

Disengaged subscribers who do not open your emails which will hurt your future email deliverability. Those are just a few advanced ideas. There are a lot of little tweaks you can make to improve your conversions but the key is to get the basic affiliate bridge funnel in place first.

Once you start creating content and generating traffic then you can keep an eye on your metrics and create a plan to optimize each aspect of your funnel. If you want to get off to a fast start I have a pre-built funnel that you can import and start using right away.
