Another post from Tubular Insights offers more info on video posts specifically, stating they get 50% of their views on day one after publishing, followed by a sharp decline in engagement. Here’s that post as well:
But even if Facebook is dog-whistling that advice, it’s not actually making such a zero-sum suggestion. Nor does it need to, since the company sells all of the other placements examined, aside from linear TV. Instead, Facebook asserts that advertisers should sum the value of their video ads on different scales.
Reversal rates are generally in the low single digits; it’s standard for about 1% of transactions to be reversed. If you see offers with extremely high reversal rates, that could be a red flag. It doesn’t mean you should necessarily stay away, but it’s worth understanding why so many transactions are returned. For example, there’s something strange going on with this merchant:
When you visit an affiliate company, you’ll be able to choose between a free plan or one that comes with a monthly cost. The premium membership comes with more support, more websites, and a stronger connection to the affiliate marketing community, but if you’re at the point where you’re just dipping your toe in the water to see what it’s like, the free membership option comes with some support for the first week and enough freedom and tools to quickly create a basic website and get going.
The coffee goes on for quite some time, the slow motion bringing the whole video to a new level of luxury and decadence. With the pro-looking title slide —which reads “Slow Moving Monday”—the whole thing looks more like an amateur short film than a simple coffee shot.
Try not to come off as a salesperson. Present yourself as a knowledgeable, trustworthy third-party reviewer. Readers can be wary of online marketing tactics, and they may be more likely to click links if they don’t think you’re trying to sell them anything. Let the interested folks click, and don’t force anyone to click on the ad.
Generally, the longer the post, the higher it will rank. It makes sense since you are covering the topic extensively which gives your post substance and people are more likely to give you a share/link. It increases average time on page + average time on site, which Google measures.
Honestly you just need to narrow down to a niche that you want to focus on and then move forward with something. I spent less than a few hundred bucks when I first got started. Now years and years later, I’ll spend tens of thousands of dollars starting or buying something if I want to. But that’s the fun part is that unless you have a big inheritance everyone starts from zero and then tries to grow from there.
Facebook’s algorithm favors displaying videos that have been directly uploaded. Obviously, this social networking giant is savvy enough not to want to offer exposure to competitor’s sites, so they favor content that has been uploaded to their own site.
I have never tried to make money with Amazon. So far, I just make money with Google Adsense, but your post make me want to try get more income with Amazon. I might will need more references to start it.
Started the blog 6 years ago, but I didn’t start taking blogging seriously until about 2 1/2 years ago. I already had some (not great) content on my site, but I basically revamped my content/website design in about 1 year – spending many hours each day on it. That’s when I got the results. Never give up :-O
The pay-per-sale and pay-per-click structures should be pretty obvious. Under a pay-per-lead arrangement, affiliates can get paid even if the merchant doesn’t generate any revenue. In most cases, this would involve earning a commission when a referral starts a free trial to a service. Even if they never pay for that service after the trial expires, the commission is earned.
You partner with a company selling products/services you’d like to recommend to your audience in exchange for a commission. You sign up for their affiliate program, grab your customized affiliate links, and place them (usually) in your blog or YouTube videos. When people click your link and sign up for something on your affiliate’s website, you get a cut it.
What makes this topic so interesting to me is that there really is no magic bullet to presenting trust and integrity, and that’s why it’s not possible to say that affiliate marketing is either “right” or “wrong”. As you say, trust needs to be shown consistently and built up over time.
