Tips For Learning Affiliate Marketing The Right Way
Learning affiliate marketing can often result in information overload for many people. The reason is that just about everyone you ask will give you a different strategy for being successful. There are simply too many different strategies to cover them all here, so here is one simple method you can start with.
Here is what you do: pick a product to promote, and then write a review page on it. Make sure to include the positives and negatives about the product. Ideally, you will have actually used it yourself and have been successful with it. People respond the best to those who have gotten measurable results from the product they are promoting.
Then, try to get that page ranked for that specific product keyword + review. For instance, if you choose to promote product X, then you will want to get ranked for the keyword "product X review". This way, your site will show up in the top 10 (preferably # 1) for a very targeted keyword phrase. The good thing about these keywords is that the person searching is looking for more information on that product, meaning they are very interested in buying it.
However, you need to make yourself stand out from all the others who are using this same strategy and reviewing that product. After all, the top 10 sites are all likely to be reviews pages for that product. To accomplish this, try to offer some sort of bonus for buying through your link. It does not have to be fancy, but bonuses are often enough to persuade people to buy through your link, particularly when there are 10 affiliates promoting the same exact product.
The bottom line is, when learning affiliate marketing, you need to pick one strategy and focus on that. There are tons of ways to make money selling other people's products, after all. Whether you pick the above method or something else, the important thing is that you do not keep switching from one strategy to another. Instead, you should pick one thing and stick with it until you are profitable.
