A lot of people have said that affiliate marketing is one of the best and easiest ways to earn money online. Furthermore, it runs on autopilot. Nowadays, the number of affiliates is growing by the minute. As the number of affiliates start to grow, the competition to attract buyers and sell products will get more tighter. If you are an affiliate and would like to get ahead of the competition and increase your affiliate marketing income, then, let me give you my 3 tips to your affiliate success.
1) Publish Content
Search engine traffic is the most targeted traffic. In order to receive massive traffic, you need to have your website rank well. You should create your website with unique content (most importantly good information) because search engines love unique content. Visit forums and the search engines to find out problems people in your niche are facing. Perhaps, you can offer some solutions to their problems.
Include product reviews in your website. Make sure you only review products which you have bought. The audience wants your honest opinion and not a sales pitch kind of review. You can talk about how the product has helped you and how it can help the reader. Make your headlines look attractive and catchy.
2) Build List
List building is a very important step in affiliate marketing. You need to have customers/prospects in order to make sales. Each visitor to your site is valuable. You need to convert this visitor to your customer/prospect. In order to do this, you need to have an opt-in box. You can get them to sign up by giving away a free report, weekly/monthly newsletter,7-day course on a particular topic, etc. Most websites offer free reports when a visitor signs up at their website.
When a visitor becomes your prospect, you can build relationship with them by offering them some useful information. You should keep in touch with them. Make sure that you broadcast honest product reviews occasionally. Be selective in your affiliate products and promote only the best.
3) Drive Targeted Traffic
Remember that you must drive targeted traffic. Don't ever buy traffic. This was what I learned from an Internet Marketing seminar. Targeted traffic comes from visitors who are interested in your niche. They want to know more about that particular niche. Untargeted traffic comes from visitors who do not have any interest in your niche. When you buy traffic, most websites give you untargeted traffic. What happens when you receive untargeted traffic? You cannot make any sales because these visitors are not interested in your niche.
Imagine yourself as a customer. Where do you visit to find information? Search engines, forums, ezines, article directories are some of the best places you can visit to find information. Advertise at these places and you will receive targeted traffic. Post articles at article directories regularly, optimize your website to rank higher in search engines and be active in forums by posting questions and offering your solutions to other forum users’ questions.
