In 1996, Jeff Bezos, CEO and founder of Amazon.com, popularized this idea as an Internet marketing strategy. Amazon.com attracts affiliates to post links to individual books for sale on Amazon.com, or for Amazon.com in general, by promising them a percentage of the profits if someone clicks on the link and then purchases books or other items. The affiliate helps make the sale, but Amazon.com does everything else: They take the order, collect the money and ship the book to the customer. With over 500,000 affiliate Web sites now participating, Amazon.com’s program is a resounding success.

Target 1-2 Keywords Per Article – until you can successfully rank for 1 keyword for an article, don’t try targeting 2. Once you get the hang of it and are ready to write an article around 2, choose a secondary keyword that is a synonym of your primary keyword. An example would be “Slow WordPress Site” and “Why Is WordPress Slow.” Then craft your article title/SEO title/meta description to mention individual words of each – while making them read nicely.

A couple of years back, Facebook’s agency site had some killer interactive training on pages and ads. There were animations that explained how different ad types worked and voiceovers professionally done — far more content than the current Blueprint offering. And my personal opinion is that it was both deeper in strategic insights and tactical campaign elements.

I’ve used this on several of my websites and the product comparison page alone can add an additional 5% to 10% income increase for a website.

I absolutely love your post about Affiliate Marketing for Beginners: How to Make Your First Affiliate Marketing Sale in 7 Steps. Over the years I have found that people put too much emphasis on “how to make more sales” versus teaching techniques as to how a beginner can make their first sale .

From all my knowledge and experience I believe the 7-day plan is an old saying now. Everyone is smart enough to know this.

The two primary players in any affiliate marketing arrangement are the content-creating affiliate and the product-selling merchant. But as affiliate marketers know, networks such as Commission Junction and LinkShare are key components of the “ecosystem” as well. Just as many sites that monetize via display advertising attempt to establish direct relationships with advertisers and cut out ad networks, successful affiliate marketers may wonder about eliminating networks and working directly with their merchants.
That brings me to an important point. Tracking your results is an essential part of determining which product or niche is successful. For your marketing campaigns, track what elements bring in the most prospects and what efforts drive the most traffic to your e-commerce platform. You want to know what specific website copy, and which particular offer is most effective in grabbing the attention of your prospects and compelling them to buy.
Choose a niche you enjoy talking about and reputable affiliate(s) offering a lucrative referral program. It took me years to realize a) I like writing about website speed optimization and b) I could recommend hosting which is the #1 factor of site speed and pays up to $150/sale. It can take several months (even years) before making enough affiliate income to live on as you build your keyword list, content, traffic, readership and community. But it is SO worth it in the end!
