Landing Pages

3 Types Of Affiliate Marketing Landing Pages

Affiliate Marketing

As an affiliate, your job is to connect buyers and sellers. You’re a middleman. That means you have the power to decide where you send the visitor when they click on your links.

Of course, you will already have picked your niche and found a hungry market, right? If not, you can find out more down below 😊

When you’re out on the social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest, you will be linking the readers to a specific landing page.

The landing page is the initial place your traffic goes to – and there are different strategies involved in courting them to a sale.

Product Sales Page

Landing Pages

The first place you can send someone is directly to the product. You can grab an affiliate link to your favorite product, go directly onto Instagram or Facebook, and write a short review with your thoughts.

You can do it in a shorter sense on Twitter. With Pinterest, you could write a blurb that gets them to click through.

But this strategy isn’t something you can build a long-term business on. It offers some benefits, but nothing that allows you to comprehensive conversions over time. For that, you’ll want to send them to your blog or squeeze page.

Blog Post Page

Affiliate Marketing Niche

A blog landing page allows you to really go into depth on a subject with a product review that exhaustively answers all questions or doubts that the person may have.

It puts them in your environment, where they’re also exposed to other posts and ads you have on your site.

Make sure you have an opt-in form on this page so you can grow your email list, and embedded links to various offers in your post. If these links are to affiliate products, you can ‘pre-sell’ the product in the article and then they will be much more likely to buy the product when they get to the sales page.

Squeeze Page

Niche Marketing

A squeeze page doesn’t give you as much opportunity to convert the visitor into a sale right at that specific moment in time, but it does give you the ability to court the customer for weeks and months (if not years) afterward.

As stated in the previous section, an even better combination is to use an opt in form on your blog, so that you have the ability to give your comprehensive review and collect the contact information of your visitors.

The blog post page and squeeze page are examples of bridge pages in affiliate marketing and they are critical to your ongoing success because the biggest drawback to affiliate marketing is that you don’t get to build a list of prospects and/or buyers; these will be exclusive to the product vendor whose product(s) you are sending traffic to.

So, ideally you would never send traffic direct to the affiliate product sales page, but to some kind of bridge page where you can capture their details before you send them to the sales page.

That way you are building your list and maybe getting some nice affiliate commissions into the bargain 😊

Of course, the key to your online success is always testing and tracking. You want to see which of these landing pages delivers better results for you and then ramp up those efforts.

Then, once you find the one(s) that have the best returns for you traffic-wise, you want to take those pages and split test them to see if you can boost conversions by tweaking small elements to the page.

That might include colors, headlines, order buttons, text versus graphic links, and more. There are tools you can get to actually track it for you and rotate the pages for you automatically.

So, you know where to send traffic to, but do you know the best niches to target with affiliate marketing? Let’s take a look…

What Are The Top Affiliate Marketing Niches?

Affiliate Marketing

The top niches aren’t specific to affiliates versus product creators.

They’re all going to be the same. But some allow affiliates to make more money because they combine tangible and digital opportunities.

Bear in mind that all these can be further split up into sub-niches and the further you drill down into a niche, the more targeted your audience will be, albeit a smaller audience.

Dating

Relationships are one of the top niches online – people wanting to meet compatible matches and people wanting to save their existing relationships.

But there aren’t as many tangible items you can promote in this niche. It’s primarily info product related.

But this isn’t really a problem as there are some very good products or courses out there that you can promote if you are thinking about going into the dating niche

Money

Money is a similar niche that primarily has digital info product courses available to promote.

But keep in mind that these two top niches have courses online that pay out a nice amount per sale – and plenty of people searching for them online.

You can target people wanting to save money, people wanting to get out of debt (not the best if they are suffering with this) or those wanting to make money (could be online or offline).

Diet

Diet is a sub-niche of the health and fitness niche and is one that’s evergreen in nature, suitable for both genders and many age groups – plus it offers a bevy of opportunities to sell both digital and tangible items.

There are many online digital courses to help with weight loss, and many of them cater to a specific audience, like baby boomers or women.

On the tangible side, you could promote many things in the diet niche on sites like Amazon. You could do a review of an info product course and then pair it with tangible promotions for things like treadmills, elliptical machines, DVD exercise sets, Kettlebells, supplements and more.

Personal Development

Self-help is a popular niche. People are looking for more mindset advice – stress relief, for example.

You can pair an info product course promotion with the promotion of items like soothing candles, supplements, stress-busting gadgets, and even massage technology.

There is also the option to find coaching programs in this niche which will inevitably sell for a much higher price and therefore higher commissions for you.

Insomnia

Insomnia is a popular niche. Sleep disorders are very common and there are both digital and tangible products available for you to promote on your site.

Along with a digital course, think of tangibles like better bedding, soothing CDs, sleep masks, white noise machines, sleep supplements, and more.

A review site would be a great idea for many of these items; write a review, send traffic to the article and link out to the product(s).

Coffee

Coffee and other gourmet foods are popular.

When you have someone who is an enthusiast for coffee, they’ll spend top dollar on a variety of things – from courses teaching them about the topic to special tangible items like coffee grinders, brewers, beans, and more.

The coffee niche has exploded in recent years so this is one to definitely look into if you are interested in this kind of niche.

Parenting

Parenting is a popular niche, too. This is a niche where moms and dads like to get advice on raising their kids, but they also have many tangible items to buy like nursery furniture, toys, educational items, clothes and more.

It is also an evergreen niche because people will always be having kids!

Once again, it may be good to drill down a bit deeper such as pregnant moms, single moms, bringing up teenagers etc.

Pets

Pets are great affiliate niches – and you can specialize in one that you enjoy – dogs, cats, and tropical fish being the most popular.

You can buy both info products on things like how to care for tropical fish – and tangible items like fancy aquariums, fish food and tank décor.

And let’s face it, most pet owners are fanatical about them; some probably treat them better than their kids 😄

Homeware

Household items are a big niche – and this goes for both indoor and outdoor.

Homeowners are always buying like blenders, vacuums, lawnmowers, sheds, gardening supplies and more.

They also buy info products to go with them, like how to grow tomatoes – and you could sell everything from the seeds to the pots they grow in!

Continuity: The Secret To Reliable Profits

continuity program

When you first get started online, you might be worried. Frankly, you probably should be worried.

Yes, you made sales this month. But will you make sales NEXT month? And how will you pay the bills if you don’t make sales?

It can be scary going from a job where you know exactly how much you’ll get paid and when you’ll get paid to working your own business online.

If you are the entrepreneurial type, then you are probably not afraid of a little risk for yourself but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be diligent when thinking about a new business venture.

Of course, online businesses don’t have the large overheads that physical businesses do, and you can get started for virtually free, but for most entrepreneurs the slowly, slowly approach can be a lot to swallow and they want to dive in head first. Sound familiar??

Once you have your business up and running, what then?

In your business you might have a brilliant month and then two months of starving followed by a mediocre month followed by (hopefully) another great month.

The trouble is that if your business is your sole source of income, you want your profits to be a lot more reliable than that!

Thus, the question becomes, “How do you get stability in your business – and your income -as quickly as possible?”

Or… how do you KNOW for a FACT that next month you can make the mortgage payments and eat, too?

membership site

Simple – continuity programs. Call it what you want – memberships, recurring payments, monthlies, etc.

It all boils down to getting people signed up into a continuity program so you can continue to get paid month after month.

Now you have a choice here: You can either promote other people’s continuity programs or create and promote your own.

If you’re acting as an affiliate, then you don’t have to worry about sales funnels, membership content, customer service and all of that. You just need to focus on making the sales.

Drive the traffic, offer your own bonuses, and do what you’ve got to do to get people signed up.

The problem, of course, is that in exchange for less responsibility, you also have less control and more competition.

The membership site owner has control over content. If s/he takes a “churn and burn” mentality and doesn’t care about keeping members happy, then people won’t stay long. You’ll have to continually make new sales, which isn’t what you’re looking for.

You want stability. That’s why you only want to promote truly great memberships and continuity programs that deliver a ton of value.

As to competition, you are competing with every other affiliate who is promoting the same program.

If you have your own list, then this isn’t that big of a problem. After all, people on your list know and love you, right? And so, they’ll follow your recommendation.

Unless they’re on someone else’s list (they are) who has already promoted the program. In which case, you’re not going to make many sales.

Promoting affiliate memberships is a give and take. Less responsibility, no control and lots of competition.

And this is why you might want to start your own membership. Look around and see what people in your niche desperately want and need, and then fill that want with your site.

Outsource the content creation if you can, so you can focus on the important part – filling it with people.

Use either a WordPress plugin such as Wishlist Member or an independent solution such as Product Dyno to create your membership site.

membership site platforms

Once you’ve got your membership site up and running, it’s time to get busy promoting it. Use every technique you can think of and track everything.

Find out what your best sources of traffic are, and then put all of your effort into just those methods.

For example, maybe you buy traffic from Facebook, Adwords and solo ads. You also get free traffic from guest posting, forums and social media.

9 out of 10 new members are coming from Facebook, so what are you going to do?

Drop all of your other methods and focus exclusively on the Facebook advertising.

Get your conversions up and your costs down and now you have a viable way of getting a continuous influx of new members into your site.

One thing you need to be aware of is that selling a membership can be a big ask with cold traffic and your conversion rate probably won’t be stellar.

So, what you could do is offer them a cheap product upfront to get them into your funnel, and then offer them your continuity program.

You could even offer a 7-day free trial to tempt them in. Also, keep the price of membership low. If your content is good, you shouldn’t need to keep looking for members because they won’t want to leave.

Plus, most folks won’t even notice a payment for $10-20 leaving their account every month.

Another thing to think about is whether you want to be creating content month after month, year after year. You could outsource the content creation if financially viable, or you could create a fixed membership site with 12 months of content that the customer pays to access.

Want even more members? Show affiliates how well your offer is converting, and you can get them to promote your membership site, too.

There are plenty of affiliates out there who want that continuous, month to month income that a good membership site provides. All you have to do is show them that your funnel is converting, and members are sticking.

Naturally, there are a lot more details than this to starting a membership site. But hopefully this gets you thinking in that direction.

Because if you want true financial freedom as quickly as possible and with as little stress as possible, then almost nothing can beat having your own successful membership site.

One more thing – the first site is the hardest. Once you have a membership site that’s clearing at least a couple of thousand dollars each month like clockwork, continue to build on that one while building your second membership site, and so forth.

Create a membership empire to secure your finances, and then you can experiment with anything you like.

Security first, right?

How To Earn 5 Income Streams From One Newsletter

residual income

While everyone else has a free e-newsletter or even a paid online newsletter, you might consider going in the opposite direction and having a PRINT newsletter.

You can use a mailing service to print and mail the newsletter for you, making it a hands-off operation once you send them your new issue and updated mailing list.

Formatting the issue is something you can hire out.

Even writing the articles can be outsourced if you don’t want to do it yourself.

But why would you want to do a print newsletter?

You can charge more because it has a higher perceived value than an online newsletter, regardless of your niche.

You have increased credibility. It might not be right, but the fact is a print newsletter is generally going to be viewed as more authoritative than an online newsletter, especially if your target market is older.

With a printed newsletter, you are in their mailbox. You’re on their kitchen table. You’re on the coffee table in the living room or the nightstand in the bedroom. You are in your customer’s homes, and while I don’t know all the psychology behind this, I do know that when they can hold your product in their hands, your customers become much more bonded to you than if you’re simply words on a screen.

Refunds are lower or even non-existent. The act of having to mail the newsletter back to you (the publisher) to get a refund is more work than most people are willing to do. And I know of print newsletter publishers who charge anywhere from $47 a month to $299 a month and do not allow refunds once an issue ships.

How do you make money with a printed newsletter?

You can use any one of these methods or a combination.

1: Subscription Fees

Income Streams

Of course you can make money by charging for subscriptions. Determine what it costs to print and ship, what it costs to obtain a new customer and how long you expect the average subscriber will stay with you.

You can charge more for certain niches, such as highly specialized areas (think fields such as science and engineering) as well as almost any type of investing or how to make money niche. You can likely charge even more if your newsletter is for businesses rather than individuals. 

Then again, you can also publish and mail your newsletter for free and still make plenty of money, as I’ll cover in a bit.

2: Charging For ‘Ride-A-Longs”

online newsletter

Since your newsletter will likely go out in an envelope, there’s no reason why you can’t add in some ride-a-longs.

These are completely separate fliers, brochures and sales cards or sales letters from other businesses who want to target your customers.

When you build up sufficient subscribers in the right niche, you can make even more money from your ride-a-longs than you do from subscriptions.

3: Charging For Ads

residual income

Another option is to sell ads inside your newsletter. Again, you’ll want to have a sufficient number of subscribers to make it worthwhile for your advertisers.

Anyone looking to target your prospects will be a good candidate, as long as they are not in direct competition with you.

It’s even possible to send out your newsletter for free and still make a hefty profit if you do some or all of the following: Target the right readers, charge for ads, charge for ride-a-longs and/or sell your own products via the newsletter.

4: Selling More Products

Income Streams

The added visibility and enhanced credibility a printed newsletter creates will naturally lead to more sales.

And it doesn’t hurt that when your customer is holding your newsletter in their hands, you have no online competition for their attention. Think about selling from a website – you are in direct competition with every other website on the internet for that person’s attention.

At any moment they can click over to Facebook, YouTube, Reddit or whatever. But when they are reading the sales letter you included with your newsletter, they’re not clicking away. They’re READING the sales letter.

You can advertise your products in your newsletter and in your own ride-a-longs. You can also write newsletter articles that make it super easy to recommend your own solution.

Even when promoting a new launch online, who are your subscribers most likely to buy from? The person who sends them a newsletter in the mail each month, that’s who.

You might also create a special inner circle of your paid newsletter subscribers. This inner circle gets special offers and deals your other list members don’t get – just another perk of subscribing.

5: Get Offered More JV Deals And Publicity Opportunities

online newsletter

The enhanced visibility and credibility of a printed newsletter can also result in getting more offers from fellow marketers to do guest posting, be a guest on podcasts and even do profitable joint venture deals.

One printed, paid newsletter publisher I know tells the story of someone subscribing to his newsletter using an alias.

This person was a paid subscriber for 7 months before revealing he was a high level online marketer (8 figures) and wanted to strike a JV deal. That one deal resulted in a very large payday for the newsletter publisher.

And when you approach others with JV deals, it’s much easier to get a yes when you can say you are the publisher of a newsletter.

6: Get More Clients

residual income

Do you perform a service of some type? Coaching perhaps? Consulting? Freelance marketing for non-internet businesses? Whatever it is, you can use your printed newsletter to gain more customers.

Credibility. Knowledge. Trust-worthiness. Being the EXPERT. These are the perceptions your prospects will have of YOU because you are the author of the newsletter they read each month for help, tips, news and advice.

Place an invitation in each newsletter for them to contact you for a consultation. If you don’t hear from them after 3 or 4 issues, call them and remind them of who you are. “Oh yes, I get your newsletter!”

Tell them you’re calling to see how they’re doing and if you can help. They will be flattered. This isn’t a sales call because they know you and like you already.

Know, like and trust. Almost nothing can build that faster than continuous communication of awesome advice in your printed newsletter and an offer to help them. Find out what their current #1 headache is and help them solve it, and you’ll have a client for life.

7 Reasons Why You Need An Affiliate Program

Affiliate Program

If you’ve created and launched a product or you have an online store, you probably need traffic.

Even if you do all the heavy lifting yourself by using a combination of SEO, email marketing and paid ads, you’ll still be scratching the surface when it comes to marketing your products/services.

You NEED An Affiliate Program!

Affiliate Marketing

This Alone Should Be Enough!

Imagine having your very own team of salespeople raving about your products all over the internet… Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Of course, it does. Having an affiliate program can truly skyrocket your sales once you get the competent affiliates on board. You’ll have an army of sales people helping you to get sales.

This obvious benefit alone should be enough to convince you to set up an affiliate program for your products/store. You’d be leaving money on the table if you didn’t… and setting up an affiliate program is really not as difficult as you think.

These days, it’s easy to set up an affiliate program with software such as iDevAffiliate. Just install the plugin or use their cloud hosting and you’ll be good to go within a few minutes.

How It Works

Affiliate Marketing Strategies

The process is mostly automated. An interested affiliate will sign up to your affiliate program either by invitation or they may find you online. You can then decide if you wish to manually approve them (recommended) or if they’re automatically approved by the system.

They’ll get an affiliate link which they can use in their promotions, and this link will cookie their potential customers.

Any sales generated by them will be reflected on their dashboard (and yours) and you can send them their payouts weekly or monthly (or at intervals you choose).

With the software mentioned above, affiliate management and tracking are a breeze. Thanks to their intuitive interfaces which keep things simple.

Here are 6 More Benefits Of Having An Affiliate Program

More Targeted Traffic

how to do affiliate marketing

Besides boosting your sales, an affiliate program will also get you more targeted traffic. Your affiliates may have niche sites and their own audience who will be looking for just the type of products/services you’re offering.

They’ll gladly buy your products if your sales copy is good – and if your site looks reputable.

Your conversions will not only be higher, but this method of marketing is more effective than paid ads which is basically ‘spraying, praying and paying’ until you have enough data to narrow down your winning ads.

Using affiliates is definitely an effective way to get sales quickly. That said, many marketing articles will tell you that using affiliates is the cheapest way to get sales, since you won’t be spending on advertising, etc.

However, we believe that it’s the most expensive way to get sales, depending on the commission rates you’re offering.

Digital products on ClickBank offer as high as 50%-75% commission rates per sale. Stores like Walmart offer anywhere from 10%-15% commission, and Amazon offers even lower rates.

It goes without saying that the more attractive your rates are, the more affiliates will want to promote you. This can take quite a hefty chunk out of your profits.

However, affiliates can bring in a deluge of sales that you’d not have gotten on your own. So, it’s worth paying more just to get more sales, even if it means settling for less profit per sale.

Overall, you WILL make more, if you get your numbers right. Just know that it’s NOT the cheapest way to get sales.

Increased Brand Awareness

Affiliate Program

Having affiliates praising your products from the digital rooftops of their web properties is the online version of marketing via ‘word-of-mouth’

And it’s one of the best ways to increase brand awareness and get your products noticed by more people than you’ll ever be able to reach on your own.

Getting others to sing praises about your brand will be far more effective than blowing your own horn with hyped up sales copy.

SEO Benefits

Affiliate Marketing

Have you ever noticed that Amazon products rank for many search terms?

One of the reasons for this is the thousands of affiliates who are linking back to the Amazon website/products. This massive number of backlinks pointing to Amazon helps them rank quickly and easily in the search engine results.

Similarly, having affiliates linking back to your site will be a favorable sign to the almighty eye of Google – which will deem your site worthy of a higher position in the search engines (because of the backlinks pointing to it).

So, affiliates may be able to indirectly help you with your search engine optimization efforts.

Form Mutually Beneficial Partnerships

Affiliate Marketing Strategies

Some of your affiliates may have their own products and online stores. You could work out reciprocal mailings with them. By promoting each other, both parties will benefit.

You might even be able to do a joint venture with some affiliates and launch products with them. The possibilities are endless – and having an affiliate program will open up these opportunities to you.

Just be sure to pair up with those marketers with whom you have shared values, so you know that what you share of theirs to your subscribers will be high quality and valuable to them.

Low Risk

how to do affiliate marketing

With affiliates, you only pay when they make a sale. This is a performance-based reward system that has very little risk for you. Marketers with on a tight budget will do better with affiliates.

Paid advertising is effective, but risky. Not to mention the learning curve where you’ll be spending money on ads until you can find a few winning ones that yield profit.

Many beginner marketers will not be able to stomach this risk… and will be better off using affiliate traffic instead.

Full Flexibility

Affiliate Program

As the vendor, you’ll get to decide the commission rates, whom to accept as affiliates, which products they can promote and so on. There’s a lot of flexibility here and you call the shots.

Do note that with great power comes great responsibility. Ensure that your affiliates are paid on time, every time – and be fair with your commission rates so that their efforts are worth their time.

Never try to short-change your affiliates. It’s not good form and word will get around.

In Conclusion…

Affiliate Marketing

By now, you’ll realize that setting up an affiliate program is a necessity if you wish to take your online business to the next level. There’s so much to gain with very few downsides.

Use reliable affiliate software such as iDevAffiliate and you’ll be up and running in no time at all.

Then go out there and proactively recruit affiliates and treat them well. Reward the better performing ones with extra perks and always be transparent with them.

If you have the right attitude and attractive remuneration rates, your affiliates will respect you and go out of their way to promote you. It’s a win-win situation for all involved.

From here on, you can scale up and expand your online business exponentially. It doesn’t get better than that.

5 Effective Affiliate Marketing Strategies

affiliate marketing

There are a plethora of affiliate marketing strategies and tactics employed by many successful affiliate marketers to ramp up their sales and commissions.

While some strategies may seem advanced, they are all usually based on the fundamentals of affiliate marketing.

You need content. You need traffic… and you need to position the right offer in front of the right audience. The goal is to help and also gently guide the reader towards a purchase.

As an affiliate marketer your job is to be a ‘conduit’ that takes an interested visitor to the sales page which will go on to sell the product.

That’s really all there is to it. All other intricacies can be boiled down to this goal. Let’s look at a few highly effective strategies employed by thousands of affiliate marketers all over the world.

Niche Sites

affiliate marketing 101

This is without a doubt the most popular strategy. To promote a variety of products you need a niche site. The content that’s interspersed with your affiliate links will make you sales if you do it right.

You’ll need to learn the basics of setting up a site, optimizing it, creating content that converts and a few other things. Once you get a grasp of the fundamentals, the sky is the limit.

As long as you grow your site, your earnings will increase exponentially. Some of the large authority sites make 5 to 6 figures a month in affiliate commissions. That’s how powerful this method is.

Facebook Groups/Pinterest Boards

Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

Everyone is on social media these days. Having Facebook groups and Pinterest boards dedicated to your niche, will allow you to tap into existing hotbeds of traffic while targeting and audience that is interested in your niche.

Through the links in your posts and pictures, traffic will trickle to your site and you’ll get sales. Some affiliates prefer to direct link the pictures in Pinterest to the affiliate products.

That’s fine too. What matters is that you hang out where your audience hangs out.

YouTube Channels

how to do affiliate marketing

If you’re shy to be on camera, you can still do unboxing videos or PowerPoint presentations with a voiceover. YouTube is an excellent source of free traffic.

You just need to invest your time in creating interesting videos that are optimized to rank well.

Links in your video descriptions can either go to a landing page or your website. While some affiliates prefer to directly link to the product, it’s wiser to try and capture the lead.

BTW, for an excellent course on video marketing, I highly recommend Video Marketing Insider

Email Lists

affiliate marketing strategies

As mentioned earlier, always strive to build your list. Have a pop up on your site with a freebie that encourages the visitor to opt in.

Have your links in your social media sites pointing to your landing pages. Do whatever you can to build your list.

Once you have a list and you build a relationship with them, you can promote products that will be well-received. A list will be your greatest asset.

Paid Ads

affiliate marketing

Many marketers stay away from paid advertising because it’s almost inevitable that you lose money during the testing phase. However, you should give it a try when your budget allows for it. You’re not losing money – you’re buying data.

Once you make this mindset shift, you’ll be encouraged to keep trying till you find a few winning ad campaigns. A winning campaign can restore your losses within days and yield you an attractive profit. Such is the power of paid advertising.

Give these 5 strategies a try and watch your affiliate commissions soar. They will take you some time to do, but if you’re consistent and stick to the plan, your future self will thank you for it. These strategies will work wonders for your affiliate marketing.

Of course, a major part of affiliate marketing is knowing which products to promote, so how do you decide which to promote and which to leave aside?

What Should You Look For When Choosing Products To Promote?

affiliate marketing 101

As an affiliate marketer, when you choose a niche to market in, ideally it should have a wide variety of products to promote. There should be a mix of tangible and digital products to cater to a wide variety of customers within the same niche.

There are several pointers you should bear in mind when choosing products to promote to your niche. Sometimes, things can get tricky and what may be snapped up quickly by some people within the niche may be ignored by others.

So, it’s important to put right product in front of the right person at the right time to get maximum sales. Below you will find a few tips to guide you.

Does It Fit Your Niche?

Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

This is a very important point. You need to know what your audience is looking for. If you’re in the golf niche, promoting bodybuilding supplements such as mass gainers might be a flop. However, an eBook about improving one’s shoulder strength may be a hit for people hoping to improve their golf swing.

You must be aware of the needs and problems your audience is facing. A busy mom looking to lose weight will quickly buy a guide that shows how one can shed the fat with 15-minute interval workouts.

However, that same guide will not be as eagerly bought by women looking to lose weight with an easier program like yoga.

As you can see, even though the problem is the same, the products that’ll interest your audience will be different. So, you must really understand your niche and expect a period of testing.

Vendor

how to do affiliate marketing

Another factor that you should look at is the vendor. If you’re promoting products on Amazon, you don’t have to worry too much.

Everybody trusts Amazon and they do a great job at selling.

However, if you’re promoting a weight loss guide from another site, the credentials of the author will be important. An overweight person selling a weight loss eBook, or a bald guy selling a hair restoration formula will not inspire confidence in anyone.

Always check the vendor’s credibility.

Sales Page

affiliate marketing strategies

Is the sales copy for the product convincing?

This is applicable to both tangible and intangible items. Does the gadget on Amazon come in different colors?

Is the description accurate and convincing? Read the sales copy and ask yourself if you’d buy the item. If you would, your site visitor or subscriber might probably buy it too.

Does It Solve A Problem?

affiliate marketing

Products that solve problems will always sell better than those that are just for satisfying wants.

Nobody thinks twice about buying aspirin when they have a splitting headache… but the cool pair of sunglasses that cost $180 may require much more persuasion on your part.

You need to supply people with what they want, not necessarily what they need. This is just the way of business and marketing; hopefully they will eventually find what they need through you.

Reviews

affiliate marketing 101

Look at the testimonials and customer reviews on the site. Amazon makes this easy by providing ratings and reviews from verified customers. Promote products with a high rating and many positive reviews.

The same applies to digital products. You may even wish to ask the vendor to email you a review copy.

Send them a link to your site and mention that you’d like to promote their product, but you wish to review it first.

Many vendors will gladly accede to your request. If they don’t, just move on and find another product.

Trends

Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

Last but not least, check on Google Trends to see if the product is in demand. Sometimes, products are very popular because of a craze, but then it all suddenly dies down.

Think fidget spinners and Pokemon Go… now you get an idea of how fast crazes can start and end. Stick to promoting evergreen products which are popular but have stable trends.

These are the pointers to look out for when choosing products to promote. Exercise due diligence in your research and only recommend proven and profitable products to your audience. This will ensure that they trust you and your reputation remains intact.

One of the secrets to successful affiliate marketing is knowing your audience so well that you can instinctively predict what products they’ll like and what they’ll avoid. To get to this stage, will require some effort and research on your part.

In fact, it’s crucial that you do it before you even start marketing to your niche. One reason so many affiliates struggle to convert readers into buyers is because they don’t know their audience.

Follow the pointers below and you will be better prepared.

Do You Have A Customer Avatar?

Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

When targeting a niche, whom will you be speaking to? If you’re targeting the women’s weight loss niche, how old will your reader be? Is she a mother or single?  How much time do you think she’ll have a day to exercise? Is she a career woman or a stay-at-home mom?

There are so many questions that you need to ask yourself so that you have a clear picture of whom you’re targeting. If you’re writing for a woman who is in her fifties, she may be a career woman or a housewife. In most cases, she’ll not be trying to lose weight after a pregnancy.

Generally, she’ll be trying to lose weight with gentler exercise programs like Pilates or Yoga. So, you can leave out hardcore interval training programs and focus more on promoting yoga DVDs, yoga mats, etc.

While some questions will overlap and you don’t need to get too specific, you must have a general idea of whom you’re speaking to. This will enable you to tailor your message accordingly.

Where Do They Hang Out?

Finding your target audience will be your next task.

Just by scanning the forums they hang out in, you’ll be able to learn a lot about the niche and where there are gaps that are not being filled by the market.

You can then target these areas with your marketing.

Over and above that, knowing where your audience hangs out will be helpful when it comes to traffic generation later on.

What Are Their Problems?

The forums, Facebook groups and other places where your audience congregates will often have questions and problems being mentioned by those in need of help. This is a goldmine of information.

Find out what common problems your market has and address them effectively. You’ll get a lot more sales and a very loyal audience.

Very often, during your research you’ll see similar products being mentioned that have helped people with their issues, and some other products will not be looked upon favorably.

Take notes here and promote the popular products and avoid the stinkers.

Are There Any Other Issues That They May Have?

affiliate marketing 101

Some niches can be related without you even realizing it. For example, the man who wishes to lose weight and get ripped, may also be doing it to attract more women. He’ll probably also be interested in guides that show him how to pick up women, etc.

This is actually a very popular industry online with tons of sales. You may wish to experiment and try promoting a pickup artist guide and see how that works for you. If it’s well-received, you know that you can start planning to market it more frequently. If it falls flat, you can ditch it and move on.

By following the tips above, you’ll become a better affiliate marketer and your content will be devoured by your readers. You’ll be the Pied Piper in your niche and your loyal readers will follow you wherever you lead them. Once you get to this stage, you’ll be an excellent affiliate marketer.

But it doesn’t end there! In affiliate marketing there are many skills you need to master to be effective and once you have found and know your audience, you will need to try to sell them on your affiliate offers but you need to be careful and not turn them away and this is where subtlety comes in…

How to Be Subtle In Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing For Beginners

There’s a marketing saying that goes, “People hate being sold to, but they love to buy.”

This maxim pretty much hits the nail on the head. Many marketers fail to realize that you say more when you say less. When a blog post hypes up a product or you send an email that praises a product in a way that’s over the top, you actually repel potential buyers.

It’s obvious that you have a vested interest in getting them to buy the product just so that you earn an affiliate commission. One the reader detects that you have an ulterior motive, they’ll feel that you’re biased towards the product because you’re affiliated with it.

Your motives become suspect and you lose credibility and trust. Once those go, getting the sale can be very difficult. That’s exactly why you must be subtle in your marketing.

One of the best ways to do that will be to show how the product helped you and how you benefitted from it. While it may not be possible to do this for all the products you’re promoting, you can still be subtle in other ways.

For example, if you have a site showing how to build chicken coops, casually mentioning that ‘circular saws are much better than miter saws because they’re easy to use’ will get you more sales. You just need to hyperlink the words circular saws to the product you’re promoting.

Curious visitors will click on the link. After all, everyone wants to make things faster and easier for themselves.

However, if you say, ‘you need to buy a circular saw model XXX to do this job effectively. It is the best saw that we found for the job and only costs $YYY’, you’ve probably set off the reader’s Spidey senses. They can sense that you’re pushing the saw on to them because you were too obvious.

The goal is to use curiosity and strategically placed anchor text to get the clicks. They must feel like it was their choice. That is the key. When the reader is doing things on his or her own volition, they’ll not be in a guarded state and will be much more receptive to the sales copy, etc.

As an affiliate, your job is to get the click. The sales page should do the selling. While your content can gently pre-sell the reader, it should mostly be ‘benefits oriented’. You want to sell the solution to the problem and not the product. The best way to do this is by showing how the product solves the most common problems that your audience faces.

You’ll not even need to mention where the product is sold or the positive reviews it has. If your content convinces the reader that the product is the solution that they’ve been looking for – without blatantly telling them, the reader WILL click on the links to see how they can solve their problems.

Everybody is looking for solutions. You’re just the middleman who gently guides them down the right path. That’s all there is to it. Be subtle.

Expand Your Online Business With A Complementary Business Model

Online Business Ideas

If you are like most entrepreneurs, one business simply isn’t enough! Many entrepreneurial business owners have so many ideas that they want to start a dozen businesses all at once; unfortunately, if they do the likelihood result is one of failure.

The savvy entrepreneur will start with a single idea and build a business around that before even thinking about expanding or creating another business. This is just common sense!

If you’ve already grown a successful business and have now made the decision to expand your business into another branch, rather than simply expanding the current branch that you’re in, then you want to choose something that you would be able to leverage off each other.

Online Business Opportunities

Going in two completely different directions may be personally satisfying for you, but to maximize your success, it’s best if you choose something that fits seamlessly with your current business branch and it will make things much easier to manage.

There are many different ways you can do this.

For example, let’s say you have a thriving digital affiliate marketing business. You’re making money recommending courses that are delivered in the form of videos or text downloads.

This could be in any niche, not just online marketing. For example, you might be recommending fitness courses for your audience. A great way to expand your business would be to begin offering promotions for tangible items as well—such as dumbbells, yoga mats and so on.

This is a similar business branch, because it’s still affiliate marketing, but it’s just slightly different. You can go one step further and create an entirely different business branch that also pairs well with affiliate marketing.

Online Business

One good way to do this would be to begin creating your own information products. As a product creator, you would develop your own courses and present them to your customers so that you could keep 100% of the revenue.

You’ll also be able to expand your profits by recruiting people who are in the affiliate marketing business to promote your info products.

Another example might be someone who is currently publishing fiction on Kindle.

As a self-publisher, you’re aware of the ins and outs of all of the technical tasks as well as the strategic ones that allow an author to publish their work on Amazon or a variety of platforms and make money from it.

So how can you expand on this business model in a new direction?

Online Business Ideas

One way is to begin developing your own info product courses that teach other would-be authors how to do what you’re doing. This is essentially a non-fiction creation. However, instead of only making a few dollars or cents publishing a book about it on Amazon, you would be able to charge much more selling a digital course on your own website.

What about someone who started their online business as an info product creator? Maybe your first endeavor online was to create a course teaching people how to set up a blog.

One thing you can do is expand your business into becoming a service provider, where are you are charging people to handle the task for them. You could make money installing their blog and setting it all up for them.

As someone who is familiar with creating your own info products, you may also want to offer services creating info products for other online marketers. These would be people who don’t know how to brainstorm, research, and write or record their own lessons, but they would like a product of their own to sell.

Online Business Opportunities

If you started out as a service provider, you can also pair that business model with something your clients might like. For example, let’s say you started off as a ghostwriter. Your clients may be people who don’t have the time or knowledge on how to set up their own blog with the content you’ve created for them.

That could be an info product that you create and sell to those same clients. You may also want to spend some time creating content that you put on a private label rights store.

While your current ghostwriting clients may be able to afford your services for exclusive content to some degree, they may love to have the opportunity to buy your PLR in bulk to beef up their site, emails, and other needs.

Anytime you’re doing something online and succeeding with it, there is an opportunity for you to sell the information about how you’re doing it. So whether you’re currently an info product creator or not, think of everything you know that a newbie may not.

Use this as an opportunity to develop courses that could help others learn the ropes. Look at your current business model and see if there are affiliate marketing opportunities in your niche.

If you’re creating products or providing services, you may be able to add a business branch where you’re simply promoting others who do the same – your competitors! Of course, you don’t have to start a new branch that pairs well with your existing one.

There’s always the possibility that you would like a complete break from what you currently do so that you have something exciting and new to pursue online. You might be able to do this with a new niche, or a completely different business model that has nothing to do with what you’re currently in.

The only reason you may want to consider pairing things together is because it makes it much easier to use the momentum of your existing successful business branch to get the other one off the ground. For example, as a service provider selling ghostwriting services, it would be very easy for you to get those same clients to purchase your PLR.

Which Online Business Model Should I Choose?

online business ideas

This sounds like a simple question to ask yourself before venturing into any type of business endeavour and online business is no different.

It is true that online businesses are less risky as they don’t require a lot of capital to get started, but you still need to see which ones are viable and a good fit for your personal circumstances and likes.

So, before you leap into a new business venture, you want to make sure that this will be sustainable for you in the beginning and for the long run. You don’t want to get started with something, only to discover there is a missing piece of the puzzle that will prevent you from achieving success with your efforts.

Analyze

online business model

You first need to analyze each business model to see if it’s viable in several different ways. The first thing most internet marketers will want to know is whether or not a particular business model will be lucrative for them.

If it’s not a profitable venture, then you’ll want to focus your efforts elsewhere. For many, it’s not just about the amount of money that they can make, but also the speed in which they can make it.

If you’re only making a few pennies every month, that won’t be enough to sustain your efforts. You have to think in terms of exchanging your time for money. Take a look at what other marketers are earning with that business model.

If you’re adding this branch to another business, then you don’t want to take away your time and effort on a very lucrative business model only to funnel it into one that won’t earn you as much money.

This may or may not be important to you. If you’re adding a second business model on specifically for personal satisfaction reasons, then the financial slant of it may not be as important to you.

But this is rarely the case, because people like to see a return on their efforts. Don’t forget, when you’re determining the profitability of a business model, you’re not just looking at what comes into your bank account.

Upfront Cost

online business

You’re also looking at the expenses you were required to pay ahead of time to get that business model off the ground and operating functionally.

Also, make sure you take a look at any alternate approaches to implementing this particular business model.

For example, let’s say you decided to go into affiliate marketing. If you promoted information products that either had recurring income or a higher ticket cost, you would earn more than someone who was simply recommending books on Amazon, where you would only earn a few cents for every sale.

Implementation

online business ideas

The next thing you want to do when determining whether or not a business model is viable for you at this time is to think about how easy it will be for you to implement. No one wants to engage in a frustrating activity, but if something is difficult, it can severely impact the amount of time, money, and effort that you have to put forth in making it work.

When you first start thinking about adding a second business model, make a list of all of the skills it requires to implement this particular plan. You might find that you have a number of the skills readily available to you.

However, you may also discover that you are incapable of handling one or more of the tasks. If this happens, you will need to look at one of two options.

Your first is to simply delegate the task to someone who does have the knowledge and skill to handle it. This will undoubtedly add to the financial burden that will be required to get this business off the ground.

Another way you can approach it is to simply adopt the realization that you will need to learn the skill in order to implement the business plan.

Some skills are easy to learn and cost-effective for your budget. Others take more time and discipline to understand, and may come at a high cost due to the learning process. Think about all of the tools that you will need in order to pursue a specific business plan.

Sometimes, marketers will teach a method and say no special tools are required. But without them, it makes the process much harder to achieve. You’ll have to decide whether or not you’re capable of handling it without special tools to help you along.

Enjoyment

online business model

The final way you want to analyze this business model to see if it’s viable for you is to think about how much you will enjoy working in this business branch over time. There are many people who start out pursuing a particular business branch simply because it looks profitable and easy.

Then they get started with it and discover that it doesn’t bring them a great deal of personal satisfaction. They begin to dread having to work on this business branch, and then it withers and dies.

One of the biggest perks in working for yourself online and at home is that you get to choose what you work on. Instead of being forced to handle projects that bring you grief, you’re able to selectively decide which projects, niches, and path you want to take in your business.

The last thing you want to do is abandon that freedom of choice only to suffer because you added a business branch you thought you would enjoy, but don’t. Before you commit to this particular new business branch, think about what it would be like to engage in this topic or concept every single day.

In fact, you might give yourself a test to do something in the niche for an hour or two each day for a few weeks. This trial run will enable you to gather enough information to see if this is a business branch that will keep you enthusiastic over time, or cause you to quickly avoid and abandon it and waste all of the time, effort, and money that you have put into it.

So, there you have it. A quick insight into how you can pick the best online business model(s) to suit you.

2 Questions You Need To Answer As An Affiliate Marketer

affiliate marketing for beginners

As you are reading this post, you must already realise that affiliate marketing is a great way to start an online business quickly.

But it isn’t always as straightforward as it seems and you may have some questions such as “Do I need to build an email list as an affiliate marketer?” or Do I need my own website to do affiliate marketing?”

In this article we are going to take a look at these two important questions.

Firstly, we’ll take a look at whether you do need to build your own email list when affiliate marketing and then we’ll look at whether you really do need your own website to really succeed as an affiliate marketer.

Ready? Let’s get started…

Do Affiliate Marketers Need To Build A List?

how to do affiliate marketing

When embarking on an affiliate marketing career, you’ll need to determine if you want to build a list of emails from customers.  Whether or not to build a list depends on the type of affiliate marketing you plan to pursue.

If you want to sell to the same people again and again in your niche, then building a list is essential to your business model.  This allows you to have communication to share information about new products and specials.

Building a list works well for products in specific niches.  For example, the weight loss, health, and parenting niches offer opportunities for you to promote multiple products over a period of time. You’ll find a wide variety of products that fit different needs of your customer base.

When you have a list, you can capture the names and email addresses of potential customers so that when a new product is available, you can share it quickly and easily.  You’ll need a program specifically designed for email marketing – such as Active Campaign or Aweber.

Using Active Campaign or Aweber, you can create sign up forms that you can add to your blog and squeeze page where people can enter their name and email address.  You can also add special categories to help you get to know your customer better, such as the top weight loss problem or parenting concern they have.

Once you’ve captured emails, you can use the program to send different types of messages. Broadcast messages are often used to announce specials or just generally communicate with your list. They’re sent one time to the current subscribers.

You can also set up automatic follow up messages that are delivered at a regular time interval with information that goes out to all new subscribers.  A follow up email might give a tip on using a product or good informative news about the niche in general.

Building a list doesn’t happen instantly – it’s another area in affiliate marketing where you will grow over time.  You’ll start with no one on your list and gradually begin to see it increase.  The larger your list, the more people you can reach to promote products.

It’s important to treat your list with care and respect so that people will want to hear what you have to share with them.  You’ll want to make sure not to share any of the information you gather or submit your list to constant spam type messages.

Another question you may have is about having your own website as an affiliate marketer; is it required?

Well, let’s take a look at that now 😊

Do You Need A Website To Be An Affiliate Marketer?

affiliate marketing for beginners

As an affiliate marketer, you may wonder if you need to have your own website in order to succeed in the business.  While it’s certainly a good idea to have your own website, there are many options that don’t require you to do that.

For example, you can use third party platforms that allow you to promote products.  Examples include HubPages and InfoBarrel.  These sites are relatively easy to use and can help you make a profit in affiliate marketing. You can write articles with affiliate links in them and you can generate income from the links and from the articles themselves as these sites operate a revenue share scheme. You can also do a similar thing with Medium too.

You can also get hosting for a free blog.  For example, BlogSpot allows you to create a free blog where you can promote products.  The one thing you need to be aware of, though, before you use third party platforms – is that you’re subject to their rules.

At any time, the rules may change and your blog might disappear or your pages may become obsolete.  You just don’t have much control over your business when you choose these options.  In fact, you can have the business you’ve worked hard to build that gets deleted in an instant.

The best way to guarantee that you have control over your business is to have your own website.  You can purchase a domain and hosting inexpensively and know that you’ll have control over your own blog. 

If you are looking to buy a domain name Namecheap is a great place to look and if you are looking for hosting you won’t go wrong with either A2 or Siteground.

It’s very simple to set up a blog on your own site and you don’t have to worry about conforming to anyone else’s rules about what can and can’t be done on it.  Then you can use third party platforms as a support mechanism and even to drive traffic to your blog.

These platforms can help supplement what you’re doing while allowing you to have more control over your business.  If the bulk of your income comes from your own website, you won’t have to worry about what happens if the rules change on another site.

You’ll find that it doesn’t cost as much as you might think to have your own site in your chosen niche and truly be the master of your own affiliate marketing business.  This small investment (of about $10 a year for a domain and less than $10 a month in hosting) can bring big payoffs and is worth your efforts.

As an affiliate marketer, you don’t have to have your own website.  But depending on third party platforms alone can be a risky decision.  The best option is to have your own website and take advantage of third party platforms to supplement what you’re doing on your own site.

This way you get the best of both worlds and have multiple streams of income to support your affiliate marketing career.

Discover Why Content Will Make Or Break Your Affiliate Marketing

affiliate marketing

Affiliate marketing and content marketing are joined at the hip. If you want to be a good affiliate marketer, you need to put out good content. There’s no other way around that.

Even if you’re using paid advertising, you’ll be trying to get people on your email list. The emails that you send are content. There may be links to your blogs, reviews, etc.

The crux of the matter is that most people online come looking for either information or entertainment. Only a small percentage are ready to buy. This applies to anything from booking hotel rooms in a foreign country to buying a gun safe.

Before the purchase, these potential buyers will do their research online. They’ll want to know if the hotel they’re staying in has all the amenities they need. They’ll want to see reviews, etc.

If you have a website that shows up when they search for the hotel reviews and you mention how the proximity of the hotel to the local watering holes is a plus point, or you show all the different activities they can engage in that’s just a stone’s throw away from the hotel – the visitor will read the content on your site eagerly because it pertains to them.

In most cases, they’ll click on your affiliate links and book the rooms. Now you’d have made an affiliate commission by providing content that the visitor was looking for. That’s how it works.

There are 5 pointers to note when creating content. Failure to adhere to the tips below will mean that your content marketing falls flat, and you’ll not see much affiliate sales.

Must Be Relevant

content marketing

Your content must be relevant to the products you’re promoting. If you’re promoting an outdoor grill, you may wish to have content on what to look out for when purchasing grills.

Or how to clean grills… or even easy grilling techniques to prevent a mess. Whatever the content may be, it must be relevant.

When writing content and thinking about SEO, try to think like a buyer and the sort of things that they will be typing into Google.

What do they need help with? Write an article helping them and then link to the appropriate affiliate product you are promoting.

By targeting longtail keywords, you know that whoever comes to your content is a red-hot lead. Yes, the amount of traffic you will get will be less but it is highly targeted and much more likely to buy something you recommend if your content is informative and helpful.

Must Be Interesting

affiliate marketing

Your content must be interesting enough to hook the readers by the eyeballs and keep them reading to the last word. If your content is vapid and dull, the reader will yawn and click off the page. There goes your sale.

Nothing is so bad that it can’t get worse. When visitors leave your site quickly, Google will notice this, and you’ll rank poorly in the search engines because your site has a high bounce rate and is deemed not ‘user-friendly’… So, have interesting content.

And, don’t be too formal and stuffy unless your niche expects that. Most niches don’t and readers will appreciate you trying to make the content interesting as well as useful.

Must Be Engaging

affiliate sales

Facebook posts on your fan page are content too. So are the videos on your YouTube channel. But here’s what makes them so powerful – the engagement in the comments section.

Look at the comments and engage with your audience. The more you get to know them and respond to them, the more they’ll like and trust you. Engagement counts too.

Ask questions that encourage people to comment. Believe me, people are much more likely to comment if you simply ask them to.

Inject humour and your own personality into your social media content and don’t be afraid to be a little controversial now and again.

You ultimately want to attract the people that “get” you and repel those that don’t.

This way you will be much more likely to see visitors to your blog content click through your links as they like what you have to say and trust you and your recommendations; just don’t let them down!

Must Be New

content marketing

Your content needs to be new. You’ll have to keep publishing content to stay up-to-date.

There’s no point in having a hotel review on your website that’s 8 years old when the hotel has already been torn down to make way for a shopping mall.

Always have a content publishing strategy and stay relevant with the times.

Yes, there are types of content which are classed as evergreen but even though they are evergreen, some of the details may change so you need to keep up to date with your market.

You can either update existing content which means you won’t lose any of the SEO juice for that particular post, or you can write a completely new post; both options have pros and cons so choose which way you want to go and do it.

Must Be Reliable

affiliate marketing

Whatever content you publish must be reliable too. The term ‘fake news’ is being tossed about everywhere these days. You want content that is trustworthy.

Readers can sense hype and drivel. So, make your content useful and it will help to sell your affiliate products too.

If you are teaching strategies and/or tactics, make sure that you know what you are talking about. It is a good idea to always practice what you preach because at least you know what you are talking about works.

If you are teaching erroneous tactics you will get found out and this can completely ruin your reputation in that niche, so always ensure that whatever content you create is accurate and as reliable as possible.

Stick to the 5 content creation and marketing tips above and you should see your content work better for you and increase clicks and ultimately, sales.

Many marketers are so focused on sales, traffic, and conversions that they neglect the content… which can make or break them. Don’t make this mistake.

“Content builds relationships. Relationships are built on trust. Trust drives revenue.” – Andrew Davis, Author
