AFFILIATE INTERNET MARKETING SUCCESS
Affiliate internet marketing can be a very lucrative way to make money online. There is an endless abundance of products you can promote on and offline in every industry you can imagine. The problem is that most do not have a clue where or how to start. In this article you will not only learn where to start but how to turn a profit as well.
Affiliate internet marketing
is the business
of promoting other people and businesses products and services and receiving a commission in return for your efforts. The problem is that most people do not know where or how to start. This can be easily resolved and here’s how.
Many sites on the internet cater to affiliate internet marketing and offer a place where you can find something you want to promote. Two examples would be Click Bank located at clickbank.com and Commission Junction located at cj.com. There are many others but these are two of the best out there.
You can go to both of these sites and sign up for an account for free. Once a member you can view thier market place and find something you are interested in, for instance video games. You will find many products you can promote on this or any subject you choose. It is important when starting out that you choose something you are interested in. I’ll explain why in a moment.
When you become a member at one of these sites you can choose or are given a special “nickname” or unique numeric identifier which you can use in an affiliate url or link given by each individual product. This is explained in detail on both sites and is very easy to do. Now, all you have to do is promote this affiliate link with your unique “code” in it. Simple enough right? Ah, but where and how to you promote this link?
Promoting your chosen product or service is not at all hard in the affiliate internet marketing arena. This can be many ways and I’ll show you one that is absolutely free here. One way to promote your chosen product is by way of a blog. Here’s how.
To set up your own blog for free all you have to do is go to blogger.com. This site is owned by Google and is what many people use when first starting out. All you have to do is set up an account and choose the name of your blog and your in business.
Once you have your product you want to promote and your blog set up it’s time to write some articles. Yes, you are going to have to do some writing but it’s worth it. This is why I said earlier to choose something you are interested in or have a passion for.
Now, you don’t just want to write any old article, you want to be smart about it. Here’s what I mean. You want to write an article and subsequent ones with the prospective buyer in mind. How do you do this? You do a little research.
You want to find out what and how someone is searching for the product you have chosen online. You can do this easily. Go to inventory.overture.com and type in the name of the product you are wanting to promote. This tool will give you a list of all the related search terms that people have actually searched for.
Here’s an example. I just did a search on “God of War” which came back with over 24,000 searches. This is a little broad and a very competitive keyword phrase. You don’t want to have such a competitive phrase because you’ll never get high rankings in the search engines for this term without a lot of effort. We are looking for what’s called a long tailed keyword phrase.
Why? It’s easier to get our article visible in the search engines for free with a less searched and/or competitive phrase. Here’s another phrase I found from the list, “god of war the ps2 game”. This has 130 searches and will do for our article.
