Affiliate Site Essentials
No matter what may be said out there, not every affiliate program can earn a consistently huge profit. There is opportunity for profit, but you’ll need to truly stand out in order to seize it. You cannot expect this money to just become yours without any effort. You must put forth effort.
Find a Niche
A niche market helps you determine what specialized products you should endorse. Do not use “sporting goods” for example. There is too much competition in this category, as it is too broad. Use maybe “fresh-water bass fishing lures” as a smaller niche.
Drawing Traffic to your Site
There are multiple techniques for bringing traffic to your affiliate website. As your basic strategy, pick no more than 3 methods, as this is much more practical than too many.
It is becomng more and more difficult to get free traffic from the big search engines. However, it is still possible if you create an attractive site and put in some effort to rank it high in Google. You will need to have constantly updated, quality content to achieve this. Get as many “in-bound” links as you can (links to your site from other websites). You can forget about directory submissions when you use an affiliate program, though, because affiliate sites are not accepted by many directories.
A different option is to just pay for your traffic. Known as PPC (Pay Per Click), this system consists of paying a search engine for each visitor they send to you. This may actually be cheaper than hiring someone to keep your search rankings high.
Build Your Own Email List
The best way to do this is to offer a free bonus or service to visitors of your site. Be sure to get their email address through this process.
Be cautious and always use an opt-in/opt-out when emailing people on your list. You don’t want to be labeled as a spammer. When someone asks to be deleted from your list, delete them immediately.
Be careful not to deluge your list with emails. Don’t email everyone on your list every day. When you communicate too often, you will run the risk of annoying your contacts. You should allow breathing room for your clients. Only email weekly or monthly newsletters.
