Succeed in Affiliate Marketing Without a Website

Affiliate Marketing Without a WebsiteIs it possible to succeed in affiliate marketing without a website?

The answer is yes, it is. While most would agree that you’ll eventually make more if you can implement certain strategies on your own website, it is definitely possible to profit without worrying about how to go about starting your own site or blog. And it might be a good way to start so that you can begin profiting right away and gradually learn how to build your own site.

Affiliate marketing is very appealing because you have a ready-made product along with a sales page and all you have to do is find a way to get traffic to it. That sounds easier than it actually is, especially because you are not the only one trying to sell the products that you decide to promote. But when you do make a sale, you will most likely get anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of the sales price in commissions.

One of the quickest and easiest places to start is on Clickbank. This site offers an enormous choice of mostly digital products and services that you can sell. Take a look at the training offered on the site to help you get started. Based on the stats that Clickbank offers for each product, you can decide which one or which ones you want to promote. If you are new, it’s generally recommended that you start with just one product.

One of the best ways to then proceed with your affiliate marketing without a website is to do some article marketing. But before you do this, you’ll need to do some keyword research. Use the free Google Adwords Keyword Tool to come up with the exact keywords that people are typing into the search engines when they do a search for whatever it is that you are offering. Then, you should purchase a domain name with the top keyword in it so that you can direct that to your affiliate link. Next, write an article on one of the keywords you select — the article should be between 400 and 600 words. Include the keyword in the title of the article and in the first sentence of each paragraph of the article. You should try to hit a percentage of about 3% of your article being your keywords. Then, submit your article to sites like EzineArticles.com. Keep in mind that while you cannot place links from your article to your affiliate page, you can do so in the resource box which appears at the end of the article. This is really the most important part of the whole article so make it compelling enough for the person to click on the link.

Writing articles is really one of the best ways to succeed in affiliate marketing without a website because it helps you establish a presence and some sort of authority, even though you do not have the website.

Affiliate Marketing Strategy – Important Aspects of Affiliate Marketing

traffic geyser for an affiliate marketing strategyYou probably won’t be surprised to learn that the winning affiliate marketing strategy involves getting as much traffic (and as much targeted traffic) to your affiliate products as possible. And getting enough traffic starts with choosing a product or service that is guaranteed to generate interest and then to convert into sales.

One part of an effective affiliate marketing strategy is making sure that you leverage off of the merchant’s time and effort that have been put into his or her product or service. An experienced and skilled merchant will know that the more his or her affiliates are selling, the more he or she will earn. And therefore, he or she will continue to test and tweak the product’s or service’s sales page to make it into a the most compelling offer possible that makes it hard for people to refuse once they land on the page.

Mark Ling from Affilorama runs a membership designed to teach new internet marketers how to find profitable products and run profitable campaigns…..and if you’ve been running your own affiliate marketing campaigns….Affilorama will teach you how to be more profitable, developing a more effective affiliate marketing strategy….an excellent membership and highly recommended.

Look for sales pages that are simple and clean, that offer a compelling headline, testimonials and, if possible, even a timer that shows people how long they can claim the product or possibly the bonus that comes with it.

Once you’ve chosen a product with a proven sales page and conversion rate, you need to get as much high-quality traffic to the offer as possible. You can do this directly by advertising your affiliate link with:

  • PPC (pay-per-click)
  • classified ads
  • banner ads… etc.

Or you can set up a content blog or website that provides useful information on the niche of the product or service you are selling.

If you are just starting out, a blog might be the easiest way to get started and a WordPress blog is often the most highly recommended because it comes with many free plug-ins that will allow you to be more visible to the search engines.

Keyword research is an important part of any kind of affiliate marketing plan of action. After you’ve chosen the product or service that you want to promote, then choose the keywords that you are going to use to get traffic to your link or to your website or blog. Again, if you are new, you want to choose less competitive keywords. Software applications that perform keyword research are important…however, more important is the ability of the keyword research software to dig out profitable keywords! Micro Niche Finder is one such application, MNF has become one of the most popular, easy to use and effective methods of digging up profitable keywords for getting traffic to your web pages or blogs.

Go to the Google Adwords Keyword Research Tool (which is free of charge) and type in the general term that describes your product’s niche. This tool will then provide you with all the related search terms that people are actually using when they go to their browser and do a search. The tool also provides you general statistics on how often each term is searched, how competitive each term is, what people are bidding on this term in PPC ads, etc.

Start with lower-searched terms and use these in your blog/website content, or in your direct link advertising methods. As you start to get more visitors, you can start using more competitive terms in your affiliate marketing strategy.

Click Per Action CPA Affiliate Marketing

If you’ve heard a lot lately about CPA marketing online, you’ve probably already realized that this isn’t referring to Certified Public Accountants. Instead, CPA stands for Click Per Action or Cost per Action. And CPA marketing is definitely a hot topic right now within the internet marketing world of business.

CPA marketing is very similar to affiliate marketing. The process is exactly the same, really. You get an affiliate link and you drive as much traffic to it as possible. The difference lies in the price point of the product you are promoting. CPA products are offered as free trials or very low cost (for shipping and handling) while non-CPA offers can cost quite a bit.

While you make a greater commission per sale with the latter, you need to generate a lot of traffic to be able to make just one sale. With CPA offers, you make fewer commissions per “action” but people will be much more willing to put in the information that you are asking, especially if the product they receive is completely free.

The other difference between affiliate marketing and CPA marketing is that you need to apply to one or more CPA networks in order to be able to make their offers. This doesn’t cost anything but the process can take one or two days.

Most CPA networks have a similar application process where you’ll have to fill in all your personal information and answer questions about the type of marketing you will be doing to promote your offers. (Email, PPC, Web, etc.). Once you’ve applied, you’ll have to do a phone interview as well where you’ll be asked what types of offers you’ll be promoting and how much you plan to spend, as well as about your history in affiliate marketing.

Here are some of the most popular Click Per Action networks that you’ll find.

Cost Per Action CPANeverBlue (previously NeverBlue Ads) is very highly regarded in the industry, especially for its user-friendly interface and excellent reporting.

Copeac hosts a large number of exclusive offers and lots of email submits (meaning, you get paid when the customer enters their email). It also has a DirectTrack network and supports postback tracking.

MotiveInteractive uses the unique Advent 2.0 system which features one of the better looking interfaces. Reporting is very good and they also have lots of nice offers.

HydraNetwork has an impressive selection of offers that aren’t seen on any other network. They offer lots of Email Submits and have a pretty good selection of incentivizable offers and their own proprietary tracking system.

MarketLeverage is well known for running contests on internet marketing blogs where you can win lots of prizes.

FluxAds: If you’re looking for email submits, this is one of the best ones to go with.

ExpressRevenue – Another affiliate network with great selection of email submits and free trial offers.

It’s generally recommended that you join many Click Per Action networks in order to mazimize your earning potential but you can always start with one and just join more as you become more knowledgeable and skilled.

3 Simple Steps To An Income With Affiliate Programs

Today, people are  looking to make additional income or some extra money and they are turning to the internet in droves. Many people are learning how to make money online, and specifically, how to make money with affiliate programs. Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest ways to get started online because you don’t need to sell your own product or service. All you have to do is sell someone else’s product or service and you make a commission.

Affiliate marketing can be easily understood. You’ll find 3 simple steps involved in successful affiliate marketing. First, you need to find the product or service that you want to promote. Secondly, you need to make sure that your offer is in front of a lot of people. And lastly, you need to build a list of the people who you show the product/service to, regardless of whether they end up buying it. Make sure you understand this last concept because it’s crucial to the success of affiliate marketing and any internet marketing venture!

If you are brand spanking new to affiliate marketing then you are going to want to figure out what type of product or service you want to promote. Ask yourself this question, “Where do you find the product or service you want to promote?” ClickBank is one of the most popular sites that you can use and it’s also very quick and easy to get started. All you need to do is register for free and then go into the MarketPlace section. Here you can try search what you might want to promote by category or keywords. I recommend you sort your choice by “gravity” which is not the only important factor but it’s a very good indicator if you’re just starting out. You can get into a lot more complicated analysis of the “right” products later on. Once you choose a product, just click on hoplink, put in your clickbank NickName, and you’ve got your affiliate link, ready to promote. Many people have started their affiliate marketing businesses by reading Rosalin Gardner’s famous ebook on affiliate marketing, called the Super Affiliate Handbook.

nicheclassroom-dummiesGetting eyes on your affiliate link will be your next problem….that is, how do you get people to see your affiliate links. Once you’ve chosen your product/service, you’ve come to the key of how to make money with affiliate programs. . .getting traffic to the program. You can use article directories to market your products but make sure that you concentrate on those that have high page ranks and allow affiliate links. Another option is pay-per-click (PPC) although you need to read the affiliate program’s rules before you try this. Some affiliate companies do not allow the use of their name in PPC ads for example. And one of the easiest and most popular ways to make money with affiliate marketing is to place links on blogs.

There’s always secrets to this internet marketing stuff, some real, some just BS. This next concept could make the difference between making a lot of money online with affiliate marketing or failing miserably. Here goes, the last step is a little bit more complicated and can be done after you get the hang of the first two. Basically, you’ll want to make sure that you get the contact information of the people who show some interest in your product so that, even if they don’t buy it now, you can still keep in contact with them and they may end up purchasing either this product or something else you sell later on. In order to do this, you’ll need to create your own squeeze page which contains a contact form. You advertise this squeeze page and once someone fills in their contact information, you direct them to your affiliate link. The company that will fulfill your needs when it comes to collecting the contact information and automatically sending emails is called Aweber….remember that name and click on that link. An autoresponder service should be one of the first purchases you make for your online business because you will use it with every aspect of internet marketing and not just affiliate marketing.

One more thing you should really consider if you are going to start your own affiliate marketing business. You need a state of the art affiliate link cloaker or ….. this is software or a script that disguises your affiliate links and helps you to ensure that you get the proper credit if somebody clicks on your link and buys through your affiliate link. Advanced Link Cloaker is a product that a good friend of mine has created and is something you should consider purchasing for your business, it has the potential of helping your make and keep a lot of money! Link cloaking can be performed a number of different ways using a variety of different pieces of software or scripts, in fact, you can do if for free if you want, Alan Peterson’s book The Definitive Guide to Link Cloaking will show you  and explain to you everything you need to know about cloaking and hiding your affiliate links.

Finally, affiliate marketing is one of the best internet marketing methods someone can use to start making a little extra money online. Learn the basics of affiliate marketing by joining a membership exclusively designed to teach you the basics of affiliate marketing, Affilorama is probably the best membership designed to teach anyone from the newbie to experienced marketer how to best use affiliate marketing to make a great living online. I’ll leave you with one though, If you want to make money with affiliate programs, I recommend to not depend too heavily on one product or one site. It’s no different than the old adage, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!”

Affiliate Link Cloaker Best Link Cloaker on the Market!

I consider myself somewhat of an expert on link cloaking and link redirects. Well, if I’m not an expert I surely have collected just about every link cloaker or link redirect script I’ve seen in the last 6 years or so. Today I think I’ve seen one of the most unique link cloaking applications I’ve ever come across, called Advanced Link Cloaker. I know the author and consider him a friend, Ali is a software developer and specializes in scripts and applications for internet marketers. When Ali comes out with a new script you can bet it is something unique and effective!

Advanced Link Cloaker is unique because it allows you to actually embed things into the affiliate page you are promoting. I’m talking about embedding your optin forms, videos, bookmarking buttons, bonuses, other promotions…..really just about anything. I can hardly believe it, let’s say you have an affiliate link for jet skis on ebay, first you paste the link in Affiliate Link Cloaker, now you want to offer the page visitor a “Guide to Purchasing Used Jet Skis”, so you create an optin code and paste that into the application and click another button and Voila!!! you created an ebay page with your optin form on it……..how cool is that?

I just got my copy of Advanced Link Cloaker and I’m playing around with it now. This has to be one of the most powerful applications I’ve seen in a long time and will surely boost affiliate sales for many marketers…..my only concern is that ebay, amazon, clickbank and others will somehow think this is an unfair advantage. So…..I guess its kind of like Google in the early days……use Advanced Link Cloaker now and make a ton of cash while you can. Of course I am not implying that this will automatically make you a ton of money…..I need to say that to keep the lawyers away, but I would certainly grab a copy and give it a try if you do any affiliate marketing.

Watch the videos for an idea of how easy and quickly you can create affiliate pages. I’ll report latter this week to let you know how it’s working after I give it a try.

Why are all of these people choosing to follow you? What is the reason that perfect strangers have such an interest in you? If you cannot answer these questions, you will not be able to properly use Twitter to maximize your marketing campaign. You will not be able to profit from the use of Twitter either.
