2 Affiliate Program Marketing Strategies to Earn Money Online!
The first method for making money online is to build a list. This is the most important step in order to continue making money in the long run. If you don't already have an autoresponder system, you should get one. Don't skimp on this either, because your entire business will be dependent on this one piece of software.
You can create your list in a variety of ways. Leads can be purchased from reputable list-building companies and added to your autoresponder. Most good list-building services will allow you to send an email to your autoresponder instead of manually entering the lead's information.
Another effective method for growing your list is through website traffic. This step, which is most likely the most effective, does necessitate the use of a website in order to implement an opt-in list form. Of course, if your Affiliate program provides a list management service, you can direct traffic to the affiliate URL, but I don't recommend it because you won't be able to send special offers to the entire list.
To get the most signups from your opt-in form, include it in the text of your sales page. It should be placed strategically in the sales text after you've presented a problem. Your autoresponder email series' title should address the issue by offering a solution. In the following example, we'll assume I'm selling a hosting package and I'd like opt-in subscribers to my email course for back-end sales.
You can, for example, use pre-built websites or create your own. Many people believe that creating a website is difficult, but there are courses out there that can show you how simple it is.
The second method for making money online is to drive traffic to your website. When I say traffic, I don't mean just any old traffic; I mean targeted traffic, people who are motivated and ready to buy. This type of traffic can and will make you money. To drive targeted traffic to your website, you can use programs and techniques such as Google Adwords, blogging, article writing, and linking. Google Adwords is a service provided by Google that allows you to pay for your website to be displayed when specific keywords are searched in their search engine.
The key to using Adwords is to avoid bidding on popular keywords. Instead, look for similar keywords that still describe your website but are used much less frequently. These keywords will be much less expensive to bid on, allowing you to spread your money across a wide range of keywords and get the most bang for your buck.
Blogging is another excellent method for driving targeted traffic to your website.
To maximize the effectiveness of this technique, the blog should be hosted on the same website as the sales page that links to your affiliate program. After that, all you have to do is fill your blog with high-quality content.
I recommend creating your own content that is relevant to your affiliate program and/or products. Once you've created some content, you'll want to submit your RSS feed to as many blog search engines as possible. This makes your blog available to other webmasters for use as content feeds on their websites.
This win-win situation enables webmasters to have high-quality content on their websites, increasing the value of the website while driving targeted traffic directly to you.
This is accomplished through the URL link that you conveniently placed under your name after writing the blog. This means your link is on a blog feed that is shared by thousands of websites. Not only do people click on those links, but Google sees them and assumes you're popular, and you're rewarded with a higher page rank.
Article writing is similar to blogging in that the information in an article should be more useful and peppered with keywords that webmasters are looking for. After you've finished writing your article, you'll submit (syndicate) it to content sites rather than blog search engines.
Webmasters visit content sites to find specific content to offer their readers. If you're a good writer, you might be able to make a name for yourself and negotiate a deal with a webmaster to write exclusives for his site. His readers benefit from great exclusive content, while you benefit from highly motivated targeted traffic.
Linking is probably the most common method of increasing traffic and page rank.
However, if you do it incorrectly, you risk harming your Google page rank and ultimately losing potential buyers. For this technique, you will need your own website, as well as a links page to place your reciprocal links on.
Many people submit their URL links to link farms in the hopes of tricking Google into giving them a higher page rank. This is ineffective; in fact, Google has been known to penalize websites that engage in such activities.
The key to linking is to find websites in your niche market with a Google page rank of 4 or higher and persuade the webmaster to include your link on their site. You may believe that you are assisting your competitors, and you are correct. However, your competition would be assisting you as well. It's preferable to send leaving traffic to a partner rather than simply having them close their browser window, and keep in mind that this works both ways.
The strategies listed in this article work, and if implemented correctly, they will increase your sales and residuals. Reciprocal linking, blogging, and article writing are all excellent methods for driving massive amounts of high-quality targeted traffic to your website. These strategies, when combined with an effective sales page and an integrated opt-in email list, can propel your company to new heights. You can and will make money with this system, without a doubt!
