Think you don’t know how to make money with affiliate marketing?
It’s a model that’s been used successfully by business people for decades.
Affiliate marketing was born the first time someone sold something provided by someone else in exchange for a percentage of the sale.
It’s been building fortunes ever since.
Affiliate marketing allows a business owner to sell more products than he or she can create alone. A real estate agent doesn’t have to build or own the house she’s selling, and a shopkeeper doesn’t have to make all the items in the shop.
Affiliate marketing brings together those with a product with those with an outlet to sell it creating a win-win situation for everyone; including the consumer who has more selection in one place.
How To Make Money With Affiliate Marketing
With the easy availability of affiliate products through outlets like Clickbank, internet marketing works the same for both the little guy and the big boys.
The affiliate marketing success strategies are the same for everyone; you don’t have to have buckets of start-up cash to build a simple website and post your affiliate links to it.
With some traffic generation strategies, you have just as good a shot at success as the guy with millions of dollars in backing (although he can pay people to do the work you’ll have to do yourself…
But it’s the same work, there are no shortcuts for anyone).
Affiliate Marketing Tips
1. Do some market research.
Use your favorite keyword tool and look at the search volume and advertiser density in your niche.
2. Start with one great product to promote.
As you learn the ropes and start generating traffic and sales, increase the number of offerings.
3. Find blogs and forums where people in your niche spend time.
Join and participate in blogs with good Alexa rankings (the lower the number, the better the rank) because traffic from high rankings sites will boost the ranking of your site in the search engines.
The quality of visitors will be better also because they’ve already demonstrated an interest in the subject.
4. Take advantage of affiliate tools provided by the merchant.
Many affiliate products come with the sample email or sales letter text, graphics, or other tools you can use to promote the product.
With a few minor changes to customize them, these tools save you time and most likely have already been tested and proven effective.
The merchant is as interested in your success as you are, so he’ll provide you with his best sales tools.
Forget long product creation and launch timelines, as an affiliate marketer you can expand your product line with a few clicks of a mouse.
Because all your fulfillment is done either electronically or by a fulfillment house, making money with affiliate marketing is as close to a “set it and forget it” business as you can get.
Who doesn’t love that?
