Make Money With Affiliate Marketing
Make money with Affiliate Marketing is easy and hard to accomplish. It just depends on you and well you learn the tricks of the trade.
Affiliate marketing has become the most cost-efficient and accessible way of making money online.
The affiliate marketer promotes one or more products of a vendor of his own choice based on average payment or commission on sale.
Promotional material and compensation plan is usually provided by the vendor, company or team you’re on.
Being an affiliate marketer has its own benefits and joys. The affiliates can place an ad or link back to merchant site which customer’s clicks and make a purchase so the affiliate earns the commission on sale.
There are thousands of affiliate programs and home based businesses which you could join (both free and paid) and surely there’s a product out there you could choose that is relevant to your niche and website.
Even in my home based business I am called an affiliate. All the simple means is you’re selling someone else’s product for a commission of some sort.
Due to its simplicity and earning potential, affiliate marketing is one of the most effective business to make money online. Especially in the home based business arena.
Although there is a downside of this simplistic money making opportunity and that is a lot of competition.
You and I both know that there are literally thousands of home based businesses our there you could partner up with.
Pick the one that best fits you.
They offer something you are very interested in. Like me I picked a health and wellness home based business in that niche.
Don’t jump into the first one you see make sure you can fully get behind it.
To stay on top of this hurdle and to become a super affiliate, one must be equipped with just the right stuff necessary to push him forward.
But still there are situations where an affiliate marketer fails in making any sale and thus returns on empty handed. There will be days and maybe weeks that this happens to someone but stay focused it’s not a hundred yard dash it is more like a half marathon.
What I mean by that is. it takes time to get people on your team, build the right system for your team, and training each one so they know what to do to have success. Maybe the success is just a little or more than you thought.
I do like what our team does and that is focus on getting 2, helping 2 and the rinse and repeat. If you focus on that you will have some results that you will like and the more you do it the more you will like it as well.
Don’t get wrapped up on the word “success” it’s just a word stay focused on results that continue to improve how you get those results.
How To Be A Super Affiliate In Affiliate marketing?
Becoming a super affiliate is not easy. If someone wants to become a super affiliate then the first and most foremost thing is to treat affiliate marketing as a business.
However there are 5 key elements that one should have to stand out from the crowd and start making some serious money, these are:
1. Choosing The Perfect Niche
Success in affiliate marketing is all about finding and choosing a perfect niche. Indeed this is the most critical part of whole business. A niche is something you are passionate about or things that already sell, that have a substantial market and that have room for you to build a site. Anyhow to simplify the process there are two main tools for you to find your niche. ClickBank Marketplace and Amazon.com Research.
For ClickBank marketplace you should be looking for the products with a gravity of more than 30 and a commission ranging $20 to $35. The gravity score means that how many separate affiliates are selling the product within a certain time period.
With amazon.com your goal here is to look for products with at least 20 reviews. People who actually bother to review on product are real and it’s something like 1 in 1,000. So, if a product has 20 reviews, you can estimate that more than 20,000 of that product have been purchased.
2. Keywords Research
That’s the part where many affiliate marketers start to stumble. But there are few tools and strategies you can use to make this a whole lot easier. Try to search your keywords with “product name” and “author name” because these types of keywords hold the most value than all others.
To get started you can use basic forum research related to your niche and Google keyword tool for global monthly searches for specific keyword. You can also use some sort of keyword analysis tool like “Traffic Travis” to in depth analysis of keywords, competition, SEO and building a large number of keyword lists.
3. Digging Up The Traffic
You won’t make a cent if you don’t get some visitors looking at your website. That’s the biggest thing of all that many affiliate marketers ignore and fails. Targeting a web traffic that converts to sale depends on many factors in which PPC, SEO, Banner Ads, Blogging, Forum Posting, and Article Writing are on top of all. By knowing the exact method and good preparation certainly leads to success in affiliate marketing.
4. Landing Pages And Conversions
The key here is to get as high of a conversion rate as possible. The more people you can convince to buy your product when they hit your landing page the more your chances of making big commissions.
There are many types of landing pages. You can have a squeeze page to get email addresses, a product review page, and a product authority site.
No matter what kind of landing page you choose always use clickable images, links, relevancy to your content. You can even have flying popovers to get more exposure of your landing page.
5. Email Marketing
The most basic and important key is email marketing and list building. When it comes to making money with affiliate marketing email will be a big part of your success. There is nothing more powerful than having someone’s email address and being able to contact them directly. Give value and ask questions. Some popular email services are AWeber, Mail chimp and Get Response.
Affiliate marketing is lucrative business. You can go from zero to 10k per month by following the plan you injected. Learning new tips, techniques and desire to adapt new things can be very helpful. Some would say it’s the first thing to becoming a super affiliate.
No matter what type of affiliate you choose to be you will always want to build your list. If I heard it once I heard it a thousand times “the money is in the list”.
Don’t get so wrapped up in the landing pages and email campaigns (have them but know there is more). Learn how to drive targeted traffic and how to convert them into customers.
