Here are 7 crucial tips that you can use to be successful at affiliate marketing.
Tip #1 = Find a desperate or passion market to start your affiliate site in.
Tip number one is very simple. A lot of your success is going to depend on what marketplace you enter into. What I mean by that is you want to enter into a market where there is either one of two aspects or 1 of 2 qualities of the following. One is that people in it are desperate for the product that you have or they are passionate about it.
A desperate type market would be something like insomnia. When someone is staying up late at night and they have to get up early in the morning the next day – in that moment they will be desperate to get a good night’s sleep. The reason why you want to target markets like that is because visitors or readers of that market are going to be extremely desperate to buy the solution to their problems.
So good markets are insomnia, snoring, how to get a ex back. Someone that just had a break-up. They are very emotional. They want to get their partner back and they’re willing to spend money Those are market types that you want to get into
Another market is passion. Anything that people are passionate about. Things like hobbies. Like magic for example. Learning how to do street magic. That’s is a very passionate and rabid audience. Because of this passion people will shell out lots and lots of money for that material.
Tip #2 = Learn to work with video – the future of online marketing is all in video.
Number two is that video is getting bigger these days. If you’re not comfortable with being on video I suggest that you either learn how. Get out your phone and start practicing or go to a site like fiverr.com and hire someone to do it for you. You can get that done for about 20 bucks a nice two or three minute video. Twenty dollars for someone who’s experienced. So what you are going to do is use those videos to get traffic to your website.
Tip #3 = Learn how to create your own website
Number three is that even though there are ways to make money without a website you are going to want to learn how to build one. If you don’t know how to do that, search the net and you can easily find information about this topic.
In a nutshell, having your own website allows you to have some longevity in the market and also be able to tap into different types of traffic that you normally wouldn’t be able to.
Tip #4 = Learn how to write a good headline
Tip number four is that you need to learn how to craft a solid headline. So whatever it is: a video, a piece of content, an email or an article. You need to master how to create a good headline. Think of a newspaper. If you scroll through a newspaper it’s the headline of each article or each page that grab your attention. Without a good headline no one’s going to listen to you. No one’s going to read your content.
Tip #5 = Learn how to do keyword research
Tip number five is that you have to learn how to work and how to understand keyword research and keyword data. You have to learn how to use the Google AdWords keyword tool. In a nutshell, the keyword tool will tell you what people are looking for in your Marketplace. You can use this data in tip number six
Tip #6 = Understand Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Tip number 6 is search engine optimization. You have to learn how to do search engine optimization as a beginner. As a beginner you don’t want to take a risk with paid traffic. You can make a lot of money with paid traffic but it’s risky.
You can blow literally hundreds of dollars a day and if you are a beginner, if you have a low amount of money, I don’t recommend that you do this. That’s why I always recommend you start out and master free traffic generation which is all based around search engine optimization.
Tip #7 = Master the process of stepping website visitors through your affiliate campaign in stages.
Tip number 7. This is very important and that is you have to step your visitors along in a process. You don’t just want to get your visitor and say: “Hey, how’s it going. Now go buy this!”
You want to start off with a small piece of content. Maybe a one or two minute video. Then send them to a bigger piece of free content which explains a little bit or give them more information. Then from there, once you’ve developed a relationship with your visitor, you can go and recommend the product.
It’s kind of like if you just meet someone new you don’t want to say: “Hey, how’s it going. My name is whatever. Do you want to be friends. Here’s my number.” What you do is you build a relationship with your website visitors. Think about that. How you can step your visitor along one step at a time to the end result which is to get them to buy things from you.
Don’t think this is going to happen overnight but you can learn how to master affiliate marketing.
