Because of this, consumers are upgrading to ensure they have a quality, dependable smartphone, so there is a huge market to explore in the mobile marketing niche.

Emergency purposes. 
Many people want to have a cell phone and parents want their teens to have one too for security reasons. Although not always to communicate with friends and socialize, it is done for emergency purposes. You can capitalize on this by selling affordable phones to those shopping on a budget.

Here are some tips how can you make money with your mobile phone using affiliate programs:

Start building a website or blog.
This is a step you cannot get around.  You either need to have a website or a blog. If you opt for a blog, where posts appear in chronological order, pay for hosting. Free blogs can get advertisements and gain admission into affiliate programs, but some companies are very selective. Most prefer websites or blogs hosted on a paid account.  Luckily for you, this will cost only around $5 a month.

Have good content on your website or blog.
Websites that generate income through affiliate programs are content driven websites.  These are websites with articles.  You need to have quality articles on your website.  Since you are targeting mobile phone affiliate programs, make your content applicable.  Review popular phones and accessories, offer buying tips, and more.  Always proofread your content before adding to your site.

Have a solid marketing traffic plan in place.
To make money with affiliate programs, you need to get traffic.  If no one visits your website, you will not make any sales.  Before applying for affiliate programs, work on this.  You do not need to receive thousands of visitors a day, but at least have some. To market a website, you can use article directories, link exchanges, message board signatures, host a contest, and so forth.

Find affiliate programs.
Once you have a functioning cell phone themed website, start searching for affiliate programs. You have two options.  First, you can visit popular affiliate program websites. These are third company websites that operate and manage affiliate programs for their customers. Commission Junction and Rakuten Affiliate Network (former Linkshare) are two of your options. Also, perform a search to find companies selling mobile phones, cell phone accessories, ringtones, text messaging subscriptions and more. They may have information about affiliate programs on their websites.

Apply for affiliate programs.
As previously stated, some are selective in the affiliates they choose to do business with.  For that reason, make sure you have a good website with quality content and a decent amount of traffic. Fill out the application. You may be approved or denied right away, but the entire process can take a few weeks.

Get affiliate links.
If approved for a mobile phone affiliate program, the next step is getting links. Your approval will come with log-in information. Use this to browse the banners and links. When making your choice, choose those that are eye catching or highlight a good deal with good graphics.

Put the affiliate links on your website. 
If you built your website with a site building program, this will be very easy. Just copy and paste the banner or link code on your website. To increase sales, put all banners and links towards the top of the page. This is above the fold. People shouldn’t have to scroll down to see your links. Pages with a lot of traffic, such as tips on how to buy a cheap cell phone, should be loaded with (Google, Yahoo and Bing) advertisements.

Promote your website more.
Internet marketing is not something you can do once and be done with. If you want to generate traffic to your website, which can lead to affiliate sales, always promote your website. Develop a weekly or monthly internet marketing plan. For example, submit 5 articles with links to your website to article directories a week, do at least 10 banner or link exchanges with other websites a month, and so forth.

In short, as long as you have a quality mobile friendly (responsive) theme website (the new Google update does require you have a mobile friendly website) with articles people can benefit from reading, you should be able to make money with mobile phone affiliate programs. This approach is ideal to start for those with limited financial resources but requires basic Internet marketing skills.

As you can see, there are a number of ways for you to make money with cell phones. In fact, these options above are just a few of the many ideas. You can also make money with mobile marketing subniches like ringtones, wallpapers, text messages and apps.
