Affiliate Big Money

While information development is an incredibly profitable market, when you’re just entering the world of online business, affiliate marketing simplifies the process, while giving you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience without having to deal with the multiple tasks and responsibilities associated with being the developer or merchant.

For example, as an information product developer, you’re responsible for all customer support inquiries and requests, and you need to spend time updating your product, working on keeping it consistently fresh and current based on market demand. It’s your job to satisfy customers, to handle refund requests, and to consistently work to optimize conversion rates. As an affiliate marketer, however, you never have to spend any time on the product development, delivery or support issues, and instead, can focus on developing profitable campaigns that jack in commission payments 24 hours a day!

Your only job is to develop highly targeted campaigns that promote high quality products and then build powerful traffic campaigns that funnel in red-hot prospects who are interested in purchasing the products you promote. Then, cash your commission checks and rinse and repeat the process! Affiliate marketing is not only incredibly simple to get involved in but it’s a very rewarding experience. It gives you the freedom to choose as many different niche markets as you wish, exploring countless opportunities and learning the ropes as you go. What other way can you “earn as you learn”? So, now that you know just a few of the reasons why so many new marketers begin their journey into online business as affiliate marketers, let’s take a closer look at what you can do to join the ranks of successful earners!

When it comes to choosing a niche, there are two methods that will help you get started: Choose a niche that is evergreen Identify demand and profitability based on existing competition Take down notes of possible products and niche markets that look interesting to you. Then, search for related forums, groups and blogs to determine what people are looking for, how big the market is and what is currently in demand. Then, investigate keywords to determine how much competition is in the marketplace as well as how many searches take place each month for specific keyword phrases relating to each niche market.

  • Setting Up Affiliate Marketing Campaigns
    The majority of your time as an affiliate marketer will be spent setting up campaigns. Campaigns involve a series of tasks, including developing squeeze pages, landing pages and most importantly – content pages. Content pages offer information to visitors who land on the website, and essentially warm them up by giving them valuable information and then focusing that information about specific products. For example, if you decided to promote a golf equipment package via Amazon’s marketplace, you could create a content site based around golf. You would offer a variety of resources including articles and resources that provided visitors with sufficient information about the niche, while promoting the golf package within the content. Not only are content pages important in order to convert visitors into customers by providing valuable information, but they are important to your search engine ranking as well. Search engines will see that your website provides a lot of great content and is targeted towards relevant keywords, and in turn, will rank your website accordingly. This means you’ll be able to generate very high quality, organic traffic to your affiliate based content sites in a very short amount of time – and without paying a dime for traffic! Here are a few ways to set up highly targeted affiliate campaigns: Niche Based Websites With niche-based websites, you simply select 10-20 products all based around a specific niche market. For example, weight loss or parenting. You then construct an article-powered niche website that features 10 different articles, and at the bottom of every article, you feature a direct link to the merchants website. Niche based websites are very easy to set up, but just keep in mind that each website needs a specific theme. You want to segment your affiliate campaigns so that every website is focused around one specific market (or niche), so that you ...
  • Promoting Your Affiliate Campaigns
    Once you have an affiliate content website ready for your market, it’s time to begin driving targeted traffic to it! You can do this a number of different ways, and in this segment of the report, we’ll explore the most cost effective strategies to jump-starting your campaigns. Article Marketing One of the easiest ways of launching an affiliate campaign is by using article marketing directories. With article content, you can simply submit it into the larger article directories and within minutes of being approved, can begin to see traffic flowing to your landing pages. In exchange for providing them with free content, you get to include some text and links in a section at the bottom of each article called a resource box. EzineArticles.com (http://www.ezinearticles.com) is the biggest, most popular, highest-traffic article directory. They have tremendous authority in Google, and articles often rank extremely well, so they can get a lot of traffic. As long as your articles are structured so that you are providing solid, useful content with a link back to your website showcased within the resource box, article marketing is a simple and effective strategy to generating prime traffic. Another important thing to keep in mind is that you should always use anchor text within your resource boxes, rather than a direct link to your site. Anchor text will help you rank for many different keywords rather than just your website URL itself. Your author’s resource box needs to be as strong as your article’s headline and contain information that will pull a reader in and motivate them to click on your link and visit your website. Essentially, a resource box is very much like a fast-track commercial. You have only a few seconds to motivate them to read further and explore your website. Here are the top five article marketing ...
