Selling other peoples products and services on the internet is one of the easiest ways to start making money online. In this article we will go over 5 tips to get you started off on the right direction, as well as reveal the #1 fastest way to make money online for internet marketing newbies.
Here are my 5 affiliate marketing tips to get you started off on the right track:
Affiliate Review Sites – One of the quickest ways to make your first commission online is with affiliate review websites. The aim is to rank on page one of Google for product name keywords and earn commissions from people who are conducting research for the products in question. It is a good way to get the last click and earn a monthly residual income. The more sites in the widest variety of niches that you have, the more income you will earn.
Forget Google – Don’t get stressed out over high Google rankings to get traffic to the affiliate offers on your website. Instead, I recommend that you just get content typed up on a daily basis and keep at it. Over time the traffic will start to come in. It is an excellent idea to take your blog posts and share them with social media networking sites and that way you can get lots of instant traffic without relying on Google rankings.
CPA Affiliate Marketing – CPA stands for cost per action and you essential earn money as a marketer without having to make a sale. So when someone opts-into your email list you could refer them to other lead capture pages and get paid per lead that you refer into a cost per lead (CPL) affiliate program. You often have to get on the phone with CPA affiliate networks for an interview before they approve you though, but more and more auto-approve programs are popping up so have a look around.
Lifetime Customer Value – Don’t decide whether an offer works depending on how high a conversion ratio you get. Decide if it works depending on how much money you make per sale. If the affiliate program works well then you will get a high average lifetime value per customer as part of the sales funnel they have in place rather than needing to get super high front end conversions.
Sales Video Presentation – I highly recommend making sure that the product you promote has their own high quality sales video presentation. Many people invest a lot of time and effort by travelling around the place doing meetings and speaking to people over the phone to close online sales. But it is a far more effective use of your time to send people to an automated sales video presentation and have sales come through in an automated manner.
