On the flip side, I’d love for you to join my email list for this blog but I have to be a little more convincing by showing you that I’m a credible resource first. (Already convinced? Sign up here ;D)
There are many affiliate networks. Many are easy to join. Some require you to apply. Some are by invitation only. Different affiliate networks provide different products so you’ll want to hunt around to find the one(s) that are the best fit for you.
While your site is still new, it’s a good idea to start capitalizing on someone else’s audience. Continue focusing on building your own content, but also considering writing content for a few big, high-traffic blogs that are relevant for your niche. By writing content for a bigger site, you are able to get in front of another audience and showcase your expertise on a particular topic. This will eventually lead to more traffic to your site, as well.
Also, don’t feel hesitant about relying on others. I know you can do some things better than everyone else but remember — sometimes better is the enemy of the good. So, if you notice that some research or analysis-related tasks tend to loom over you, just delegate it and have it finally done.
Hi Chris – as I was reading I was thinking to myself how much of this comes from your excellent Niche Profit Course. Interestingly most of the tips you offer here could be used on just about any blog. As an example, I could mention a business book in the context of a business post, and link to it using an Amazon affiliate link.
We can target ads to people based on how they engaged and when they engaged and create an experience that is relevant to where they are in the process of investigating our products. Facebook’s self-serve ad interface is better than any other ad platform on the market—you don’t have to be a tech wiz to get in there and get things rolling!
Part of the affiliate marketing game involves picking out merchant partners and products to promote. If you’re promoting a crap product, you can probably send some traffic through the affiliate link by doing a good job of marketing it to your audience. But once they get to the merchant site and are disappointed in what they see, they’re probably going to abandon.
Some websites allow you to engage in pay-per-click affiliate marketing without running your own website or blog. Direct links through outside merchant websites allow you to create and make money off of ads without having to post them to your own website. For instance, you might make an ad for a dating website and advertise on Facebook; when someone clicks on your ad, they go straight to the dating site, instead of a website or landing page you have created. Some affiliate networks that specialize in direct linking include Associate Programs, Affiliates Directory, E-commerce Guide, and Link Share.
I’m still a total newbie with Amazon, so this is a great place to start, I’ve heard it’s hard to get the ball rolling with Amazon but once you find the right niche, getting the affiliate sales for products is quite easy when done right.
feeling little disappointed after reading this post . . .:/ I don’t think it is at all an easy way! Convincing someone to buy your product is not that easy… ! Anyway, that’s the way I think, many may find this useful.. 🙂
