Work as an affiliate is great!

It is considered to be the most popular work at home business.

There are hundreds of companies and small businesses that will pay you a commission for promoting their heir best converting products.

When you work from home you need to have three things in mind in order to be successful.

  •  Learn networking techniques 
  • Apply them, and the most important of all is to
  • Stay with a positive attitude.

If you have these two things, there are virtually no limits to what can be accomplished.

For anyone new, to the affiliate profession, it can get extremely tough, Those hard times can break the beginning affiliate. When hard times coming often is easier to just throw up everything, and walk,

but for the successful marketer there is no walking away, just stick with it, with patience and persistence. It’s your business and there is no quit until success. If this sounds like you then this profession may be just what you have been looking for.

For most people, the most difficult times are seen when they first start out. This is the time to be careful. As a novice, you have to work a lot harder than those who has advertised their web pages and products for years. An old cat can go away for a month or two and the sales will not stop. This is known to the industry as the auto pilot. For the newbie, it will be hard until their site goes into auto pilot, but the automation is very important in affiliate business.

For the time being, there are many ways to get up, and running. The difficult task is deciding how, and where you wish to start. If you are considering trying your chances at being an affiliate, the first thing to understand is that a web page is nothing without visitors.

(Word of caution: If you do not have a website, no worries. Most of the affiliate groups will provide you everything.)

Consider your web page or landing page is like your front store so to say.

If no one knows where you are, or what you have to offer you will not sell any products. The same thing applies to a web page or a landing page, you can have the best web page in the world, and it will not do you any good. YOU HAVE TO GET VISITORS! VISITORS! But remember! You don’t need to get just any visitor either!

Make it a point to get the targeted visitors!

1.) Most importantly, an affiliate program the first thing you need to do is, approach your sponsor.

. This is the person who is accredited with recruiting you as the new affiliate member. Make sure to contact your sponsor, Introduce yourself ask for help if you need. Remember starting up is the hardest thing you will ever have to do in this business or any other business for that matter. From there it will get easier. So don’t be afraid of asking for help. Get help where you can. Your sponsor will be more than happy to give you pointers.

2.) Most affiliate groups have a training course available to new affiliate members.  Read them carefully understand the ground point and apply! In those courses, you will get tools, ideas, and links to promote their products. all of them will give you advertising pages or landing pages such as this one  

You should use these pages to promote your products. These pages make things easier for beginners. It allows for the affiliate to concentrate on getting the link out to potential buyers. AKA Targeted Visitors.

3.) Now the time has come to decide on what roads to take. How will I market my new business? This all depends on who you are. If you have money to spend you can advertise any way you would like to. You can advertise with Google Ad words, or other pay per click (PPC) services, place ads in magazines etc…. Actually, there are quite a lot possibilities, when you can invest some small amount of money.

For those on a budget, you can advertise many different ways as well, you will need to be a little more creative in your advertising. Advertise through blogs, and forums, to writing articles, reciprocal linking is a good idea (exchanging links with other websites.), promote through emails (DO NOT SPAM) there are endless advertising methods for both kinds of affiliates.

Here are a few free advertising links that I have used in the past to get me started

4.) Once you have decided on how you will advertise try and get your links in front of people who are looking to buy your products. If I am promoting bass fishing equipment I need to find a captive audience. I need to get my link in front of those people who want to buy bass fishing equipment. There is no rocket science involved here! Ask yourself this question; where are my potential buyers? The beautiful thing about the Internet is, the answers are only a click away. Use the Search Engines for this example I would type in fishing blogs, forums, stores, bait shop, fishing story postings, derby etc… This would be a goof start to finding your customers.

Once your advertising starts flooding the Internet it is almost impossible to stop people from buying your companies products. You would have to shut down your website and turn off your links. The rewards can be fruitful, and with the right attitude, knowledge, and products, you will earn a piece of the Internet’s great wealth.

Never doubt yourself, and never stop learning, never quit, and the internet income is yours for the taking!

6. Install the blog software – Why blog software? Because it will provide with the necessary structure to make it easy for you to run an effective site and post new content easily. WordPress is the most popular. It is open source, which means it’s free, it’s easy to install, and it is extremely powerful. Many web hosts have a one-step process for installation, or just download and follow the instructions provided.

7. Make it look good – One of the perks to WordPress is all the templates that you have to choose from. In addition to the hundreds of free themes, there are hundreds of WordPress themes you can buy. Pick a theme that looks good, ties to your niche, has the layout you want, and offers what you want to be able to do in terms of tools.

8. Create your categories – Your blog software should allow you to setup categories that help you to organize your entries so it is easier for your visitors to find what it is they are interested in reading. For example, your Jack Russel site might have a number of categories such as training, eating, toys, etc.

9. Become an Amazon Associate – The sign up is simple, and it’s free. Just go to the Amazon site and at the bottom click the ‘Join Associates’ link. You’ll want to have your site set up – at least the basics with some content, as they are going to review your site.

10. Create the blog posting links – There are different ways to create your links. You can use the tools offered by your blog software, but the easiest way is using the Amazon Build A Link tool. Log into your Associate page, and find the product you want to review. Build your personalized link. There are a number of options for link building but most would tell you that the text links are most effective.

11. It’s time to blog – The time has come to write your blog review and post it. You will insert your link code to the product on the Amazon site (created above) that you are writing the review for. You will want to include a number of reviews.

12. Promote your website – Make sure you take time to promote your website/blog. There are all kinds of online communities that can help you do this, as well as social media, directories, etc. The more exposure the better!

There you have it – in Part 2 we have set you up so that you are ready to start making money with your Amazon affiliate program. So what are you waiting for? Why not get busy today?

Getting Started Making Money With Amazon

 

Since you’re here reading this, you’ve likely already heard about how you can make money with Amazon Affiliate Program. Perhaps you have already created your own website and hosted it in hopes of making some good coin with Amazon Affiliate Program. If you are unsure exactly how to do that, you aren’t alone. Here are some steps to get you started.

1. Learn basic HTML – If you don’t know HTML already, now is a good time to learn it. It will help to keep your costs down and give you more flexibility. Many sites are WYSIWYG but the trouble is you lack any flexibility when it comes to creating hyperlinks, formatting text, and carrying out other tasks that can help you to make money with Amazon. There are tons of HTML tutorials online so in no time at all you can learn the basics.

2. It’s time to decide what your niche or topic will be – If you are planning to make recommendations, do product reviews, or just talk about a certain product or products in an effort of selling that product. Make sure you choose a narrow niche that is distinct and will be easy to target. For example Latin dance, card making, Jack Russell, etc.

3. Pick the domain name – make sure that you give this the thought it deserves. Choose a name that is keyword rich to help you with SEO, a name that is relevant, and matches your niche. Of course, it will have to be available so have a few options that you’ll be happy with. For example, latindanceforbeginners.com easycardmaking.com or ilovejackrussel.com you can also be creative in case the domain you want isn’t available by using hyphens, such as latin-dance-for-beginners.com or choose a different domain extension. There are tons – for example net, ca, org, edu, etc.

4. Register the domain name – Many hosting sites are set up so you can register your domain right away but if not you can register it separately through many different sites. Once you register your domain name, it will be yours to use. Registering a domain for a year ranges from $10 to $20 on average.

5. Setup web hosting – This is where you need to be careful. There is really expensive web hosting and generally there is no reason to pay high rates. Even if they offer all kinds of tools most people don’t use the majority of these features and you’ll be paying for them. You should be able to find hosting for as little as $5 a month, and for as little as $10 you can find hosting for unlimited sites.

There you’ve got a good start. Read Part 2 for the final steps in getting started making money with Amazon.

“Ten Commandments” of Forum Marketing

 

There’s a right way and a wrong way to drive traffic to your CPA promotions through forum interaction.

These tips are quite simple, but they basically comprise the “Ten Commandments” of Forum Marketing… and – a bonus – they can also be used for any type of traffic generation – not just specifically for your CPA campaigns.marketing-strategy-image

Here they are…

Thou Shalt:

1. Make sure that what you have to say in answer to other peoples’ posts is helpful, helpful and, above all, always helpful, if you join a forum
2. Make sure thy sites are populated with really valuable, original content that pops people’s eyeballs out with delight
3. Only drive forum traffic to your CPA promotions through your approved and allowed official forum signature
4. Only drive forum traffic to your relevant blog site or website – not directly to your CPA promotion
5. Always check the forum guidelines!

Thou Shalt Not:

6. Link directly to your CPA advertiser and his promotion
7. Put a link anywhere in your post or answer, unless so allowed by the forum guidelines
8. Get involved in opinionated, negative discussions that detract from the “expert” persona you want to present
9. Send forum members to websites of yours that are not really relevant to the forum’s burning main topic
10. Waste thy efforts on a forum that doesn’t allow signatures containing links

Taking care of these 10 basic commandments will make sure you never violate any of your chosen forum’s rules (which would most likely result in finding yourself banned!)

It will also position you as the “go-to gal” (or guy) expert in that forum’s niche topic. And ultimately, this will be your biggest traffic generator and buzz-spreading machine of all.
