First Thing’s First – Avoid These Silly Affiliate Marketing

Filed under: Uncategorized — paulenge @ 8:49 am

While affiliate marketing is a great way to earn a living, the fact is that many people

become discouraged and drop out of programs. In many instances, the failure to be

successful with affiliate marketing has to do with making a few simple mistakes. Here

are some examples of those mistakes and why they should be avoided.

Perhaps the most common misconception about affiliate marketing is that one can rake

in huge amounts of revenue simply by slapping up a low-quality website with no original

content and tossing in some affiliate links.

While it is certainly true that you need to have a web site up and running in order to

participate in an affiliate program, there is also the need to apply some effort to getting


the word out about your site. Otherwise, the chances of people visiting your web site

and clicking on one of the links are pretty slim.

Promoting yourself and your web site is a big part of ensuring the creation of affiliate

income. This will mean doing everything you can to raise your search engine ranking

positions on Google, Yahoo, and MSN.

Far too many people assume that somehow the Internet magically will capture every

lovely word on the web site and magically have it show up prominently when people do

a search. This is not the case at all. Taking the time to carefully research keywords,

craft content related to them, and the optimize your site for them is an absolute must.

And that’s not it. Marketing is bigger than just SEO. A strong and comprehensive

marketing effort includes getting out there and using every legitimate means of

promoting your site, from leaving business cards on restaurant tables to posting a

printed ad in the local supermarket to listing your site at online business and

informational sites.

Choosing to consider this sort of activity a waste of time is more or less deciding you

want the program to fail.

Another mistake many affiliate partners make is not choosing products that have some

relevance to the content of your web site. For example, you run a wonderful web site

about the care and training of dogs. People will visit your site to see the images of your

pets, read your comments on various aspects of dog training, and perhaps to post a

message or two.

Since your visitors will already have an expressed interest in pets, why not make sure

the ads that reside on your site have to do with some aspect of pets or pet care? You

will earn much more money if this is the case, rather than having ads that have to do

with home decorating or some other subject.

Keeping your site content and the ads more or less relevant to one another will make it

easier to generate revenue, and not fail as an affiliate marketer. Now, this may seem


intuitive – but many make this mistake in subtle ways (i.e. they mismatch their

customers with products).

One final mistake that many affiliate marketers make is not sprucing up their web sites

from time to time. Keeping the content fresh is one way of building and keeping a loyal

reading audience.

If there is a reason to check back with your site every week, then chances are repeat

visitors will click on ads that appear to be new to them, or that they enjoyed looking at

the last time they visited your site.

Keeping the same old look and the same old text with nothing new to entice people

back is a sure way to limit your chances at being a successful affiliate marketer.

In short, most of the more common mistakes all track back to an attitude that you do not

have to do anything in order to generate revenue.

The fact is that you do have to proactively promote your site, keep the content fresh,

and make sure the ads have some connection to the subject matter of your site.

By taking the time and effort to do these three simple things, you will have much better

chances at being a success with affiliate marketing.

Why Affiliate Marketing is a Lucrative Business

Filed under: Uncategorized — paulenge @ 6:45 pm


Pardon me for being away for so long. l had to pursue a course in accounting with all

the busy time table and so on and so forth. in any case i intend continuing from where

i stopped on affiliate marketing.

If you have been considering an affiliate marketing venture, there are some very good

reasons why you should go with this method of generating recurring revenue. Here are

some of the ways that affiliate marketing can be a lucrative means of creating income

that will be stable and allow you to grow exposure over time.

One of the first advantages of affiliate marketing for the new entrepreneur is that the

startup cost is very low. Most companies that offer affiliate marketing programs do not

require any type of monetary investment on the part of the affiliate.

Expenses are limited to what you have to pay to connect with the Internet, the software

you may need to load on your computer, and a web site where the ads associated with

the affiliate marketing program can be placed. With web site hosting such an

inexpensive service these days, setting up your own web site for the affiliate ads will be

a breeze.

In fact, you may not have to set up anything, if you already have a web site up and

running. As an example, you may already own a web site that is dedicated to your

interest in alternative fuel options.

Signing up for an affiliate program that will place ads on your site that click through to

companies that produce vegetable based fuel options would be a natural way to earn a

little money. Associating your interests with the subject matter of the ads that appear on

your web site is one of the easiest ways to build up a steady web presence that result in

a steady flow of income.

Another reason that affiliate marketing is such a moneymaker is the fact that there are

so many different types of ways to set up the program. You can go with the pay per click

option, which works out great when it comes to promoting special offers. Ads that lead

to product review sites often are a way to allow product users to go through your portal

and leave comments on the items they purchase.

Hello Guys, this week i am going to tell you how affiliate revenue is shared,

please read along and let me know your opinion in the days ahead.

The vast majority of affiliate programs provide compensation through revenue sharing.

In some cases, revenue sharing is referred to as a cost per sale transaction. Essentially,

the affiliate is earns either a fixed amount or a percentage of the purchase price when

anyone locates and buys the good or service through the portal provided by the affiliate.

For example, a family web site that allowed businesses that produced infant care

products to feature ads on the front page of the web site, complete with links, would pay

the family for every sale that was made through that link.

Many affiliate programs require that the earnings reach a certain level before pay out

takes place. Others will pay on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis, with no minimum

amount of earnings required.

Another less popular means of generating revenue through an affiliate program is the

cost per action method. This differs from the cost per sale method, in that cost per

action simply requires that the prospective buyer see the ad on a web site and click on it

to investigate for a minimum amount of time.

It does not have to end in a sale. As one can imagine, the amount of revenue generated

from this sort of arrangement is much less than by a cost per sale revenue sharing plan.

With the cost per action world, the pay per click may be the format that most people

recognize immediately. However, it is also the least popular method of affiliate

marketing today.

While PPC began with a strong following, the method proved to be far too susceptible to

fraudulent clicks, which resulted in little sales but a lot of money paid out by advertisers.

Today’s methods, which help to track addresses of the customers as well as require a

minimum amount of browsing time, have cut down on the incidence of fraud a great


Affiliate marketing today covers a wide range of products and services, from household

items to telecommunications offerings. Any enterprising individual with some expertise

in a given area could very well find an affiliate program that would generate some

recurring income. All it takes is a look around the Internet.

Thanks and see you next year.

The Background of Affiliate Marketing

Filed under: Uncategorized — paulenge @ 5:10 am

Welcome back. Today im going to talk on affiliate marketing.

As an ongoing way to create income opportunities, affiliate marketing has captured the

imagination and attention of a number of entrepreneurs over the last decade. Here is

some background on the development of affiliate marketing and how it continues to

evolve today.

At its core, affiliate marketing is all about getting attention for a good or service by

utilizing online resources that are managed by partners or affiliates. The most simplistic

of all these methods is allowing advertising to be displayed on a web site that is the

domain of the affiliate.

Typically, the advertisement will allow the prospective customer to click on and be

redirected to a page or site where there is more information and the chance to order the

good or service in question. In return for providing a doorway for that customer to

discover the product of service, the affiliate is rewarded with compensation, usually via

electronic transfer or check.

The concept of affiliate marketing is a natural outgrowth of the online marketing that

sprang up in the early years of widespread Internet use. At first, online marketing was

more of a business to business approach, since companies were the first to jump on the

Internet bandwagon. Putting up a web site and sending emails out to solicit business

was a cost-effective way to gather new business clients.

As Internet use began to spread into the home, a number of companies began to see

that working with owners of personal web sites would be a great way to promote goods

and services with very little in the way of investment in marketing resources.

The trick was to make the idea enticing to individuals, so they would be interested in

allowing companies to advertise through their web sites. Out of this need to come up

with a strategy that would appeal to a large body of people, the basics of affiliate

marketing were developed, and still continue to shape the course of affiliate programs

today. See you next week for the continuation
