I like basketball, but I’m not passionate about it. However, if you are, you can use that passion to start your own website based around the subject of basket ball. Many basketball fanatics, visit websites all the time, not realizing the owner of that site is somebody just like them, who loves the sport, and decided to earn a living off of it. Launching your own basketball website, is how you can pour your passion for basketball into a career that keeps you stimulated and pays the bills.
You don’t need a massive website with hundreds of pages. In fact, all you need is a single web page…that’s it! This web page will allow you to build your own mailing list of basket ball fanatics who will fill your bank account with money on a regular basis. I know that sounds hard to believe, but Internet marketers such as myself, do it all the tie. We build a one-page web site, based on a niche topic, designed to attract and invite like-minded individuals to join our mailing list.
After a few months of aggressive promotion, we establish a mailing list of thousands of subscribers who we communicate with via email and recommend niche related products to. In most cases, the products are not even our own. We simply sign up for affiliate programs and earn commissions by recommending other people’s products through a unique affiliate link that tracks our sales. It’s a very simple process. Here is a brief overview tailored to the basketball niche.
1. Build a single web page offering a basket ball ebook or some other basket ball related product for free download if they join your mailing list. Many times, you can find niche related ebooks that have resell rights which you can offer as your free download.
2. Promote your web page on the Internet in order to acquire mailing list subscribers. There are tons of free ways to promote your web page.
3. Recommend basketball related affiliate products to your mailing list subscribers and earn commissions for any resulting sales.
Affiliate marketing involves building a relationship with your mailing list subscribers by communicating with them via an automated mass email system, called an auto responder. Unlike SPAM, this is permission based email which requires people to subscribe in order to receive your mailings. You can talk about whatever you like, player stats, your old high school basket ball team, training techniques, your kids little league team, the NBA, ANYTHING…as long as it relates to basket ball.
Occasionally you will find basket ball related affiliate products that you can elegantly recommend to your mailing list subscribers. Once you have grown a large mailing list, you can earn thousands of dollars with the click of your mouse, in just a single email broadcast. Affiliate marketing can be an extremely fulfilling (and profitable) career when you focus on a topic you love.
