The topic you choose must have enough depth that you can create a lot of content for it. This is important for building an authoritative site, for search engine optimization, and most importantly, for the end user. If you don’t have enough content about a topic, you’re not going to be taken very seriously as an authority on the topic and it’s unlikely you can convince someone to make a purchase from you.
It’s been a lot of work, as when my article got to page n.1 on Google, my blog was not even 6 months old and had to compete with the top leaders in the industry, but thanks to a good backlink strategy, updating my content regularly and replying to my readers question one by one, I was able to double my income in one year. Without using Adwords or any type of paid advertising.
There is no need to learn the mechanics of marketing optimization, any more than you’d use an abacus nowadays. Some will use the car analogy and say that self-driving care and self-optimizing ad campaigns are on the way.
Using Facebook as part of your overall marketing strategy makes smart business sense: it’s cost-effective, responsive, measurable, and puts you in direct contact with targeted consumers and prospects.
Another important statistic to understand is the live element is what’s most appealing to viewers. After your broadcast is finished, the recorded video lives on your page. However, Facebook found that live videos are watched three times longer during the actual stream than the replay.
Ryan Kwa is an excellent trainer and thus comes highly recommended. Please extend my thanks to him again. However, please allow me to suggest two aspects of the training centre which need improvement (kindly take this as positive feedback from a well meaning client): 1) the physical classroom environment (esp. furniture) needs upgrade. 2) As your centre offers quite some social media and digital advertising courses, your website’s look and feel doesn’t do your centre any justice unfortunately. It needs to be more enticing. I am an exception because I made the concerted effort/ took the time to read the course offering and the trainer’s credential in spite of the “heavily worded and formidable” website.

Thank you for detailed post. I am eagerly looking to start an affiliate website for Amazon products. Google search brought me on this page and I am happy to learn what the heck affiliate is all about.
Monitor the success of your affiliate programs, particularly if you have several programs and/or are also using other ad types, such as Google AdSense for making money. Sometimes having too many ads dilutes the site or distracts readers, resulting in lower performance.
I just want to remind you that you won’t make money through affiliate marketing overnight. The car below is the 1st car I have EVER purchased myself at age 29 (I was broke until then and leased from my parents). But the time committed to affiliate marketing and creating great tutorials and YouTube videos was worth it… I work for myself, I don’t have to clock in 40 hours if I don’t want to, and I collect enough passive income to live the life I want. I hope you do it too.
Almost any website could be recruited as an affiliate publisher, but high traffic websites are more likely interested in (for their sake) low-risk cost per mille or medium-risk cost per click deals rather than higher-risk cost per action or revenue share deals.
As we alluded to earlier, the average consumer spends five hours per day on their mobile device. But what’s even more interesting is how that time spent breaks down. As you can see in the chart below, Facebook is the clear leader with 19%.
Focusing on any one of these areas increases your chances of affiliate marketing success. But optimizing one area when another is sub-optimal won’t deliver the results you want. In other words, the real success and revenue comes when all three are executed successfully.
Any money you make from anything online you should report to the IRS. I believe anything over $600 and they send out tax documents to you and to the IRS. Don’t mess around. Report any and all income you make.
You’re not limited to just your listings. With listing agent permission, you can create marketing campaigns for all listings on your MLS. Marketing is all pre-written and customized with your personal information.
Does your video simply not make sense without sound? Add captions! Facebook recently announced that they’re making it even easier for advertisers to automatically add captions to their videos because they’ve become aware that sound can be an issue. “Internal tests show that captioned video ads increase video view time by an average of 12%,” Facebook reports.

Ace Metrix will allow us to objectively measure the creative quality of the video in the Facebook environment, and highlight performance indicators for advertisers such as watchability, meaningfulness and emotional resonance. We’re taking this step in order to maintain high-quality ads on Facebook and help advertisers understand what’s working to maximize their return on investment.

If you have a significant international following, sending each fan to their local storefront gives them a better experience. It can also open up an entirely new revenue stream by earning commissions from international storefronts of sites like Amazon.
Thanks so much for the tips, as I am a beginner in affiliate marketing and will take heed to the advice. Less is more for sure in trying to advertise too much and money is time as time is money. Better to be secure and proficient then not.
Once I found my niche (WordPress speed optimization), a solid hosting company with a high commission program (SiteGround) and created tutorials around topics people in my niche would find helpful (and might want to change their host), that’s what got me to $100k.
Use Deep Links – these are pages on your affiliate’s website that AREN’T the homepage. For SiteGround’s hosting I link a lot to their speed technology page as an affiliate link. If you’re doing Amazon’s affiliate program you just want to gather a list of products you will be recommending to readers, create an affiliate link for each one, and import them to the plugin.
I don’t know how you will take this but I have seen you frequently making mistakes with the ‘s’. Here for example : “an example of how this work( it should be works) a video with sally chow….” you made that mistake again. You are such a bigshot and you may not like it but I wanted to say so I said.
Amazon spends millions of dollars on improving the way they get people to convert. The fact that they provide a custom user experience for every person that goes to Amazon.com based on the buying behavior and viewing patterns tells me they know what it takes to close a sale. Some of the best closing advice I can give is to simply find ways to get your visitors onto the Amazon.com webpage and they’ll take care of the rest.
One you have become a partner, you can add your affiliate links and whenever your video viewers click on your link, be sure you will be paid if yours is a pay person click kind of affiliate marketing.
When I first published it, I put it up on reddit a few places, and on a facebook group I’m in. It was sitting at #3 the day I published it, then it slowly slipped back down the front page of google. It went all the way down to the bottom of the 2nd page, and sat there for a week or so. Then I saw it randomly just shot up to 2 again.
Hmmm…not sure if I understand exactly, but do you mean the code itself shows up on your site instead of pulling the ad? And it happens for both CJ and Amazon? You might try grabbing just your affiliate URL (http://cj.com/referal/etc) and not all the img tags and stuff that are often supplied automatically. Or, if no links are working in your widgets, you might try calling your host or your theme author?? Sorry I’m not much help here!
Great question. I’ve never used plugins for affiliate links (I tend to keep my plugin use as light as possible). I do keep a spreadsheet that makes pasting in my affiliate links quite simple though, even though it requires an extra step. I wrote about it here.
We found the article to be well written and decided to feature it in this episode. If you woud like to provide any additional comments, you can do that directly at the bottom of the page listed above.
It bothers that all a trainer needs to succeed is 20-30 dedicated clients yet there are so many that fail. The answer doesn’t lie in sales; it lies in showing your value before the sales meeting takes place.
Using Youtube to promote an affiliate product works really well! We have been doing this for quite some time. Also, ranking local businesses with video is very lucrative and will bring in a nice monthly income. Thanks for sharing!
