Three Rules Of Affiliate Marketing

If you’ve spent a bit of time in affiliate marketing already – doing what you know to do to try to make some money from the comfort of your home – you may have come to the conclusion that affiliate marketing is difficult. While it is certainly true that affiliate marketing can be complicated and nuanced, however, the truth is further from “difficult,” and falls much closer to “easy to mess up.” But once you know some of the rules to follow, you will know the mistakes to avoid!

The very first rule is that you should make sure you are choosing to become an affiliate for something that people will actually purchase online. A lot of people pick a product through which they could make great money if anyone were buying it, but for which most people are only going to the Internet for research, and are actually purchasing in person.

While most people are aware of this first rule (or, at least, are able to figure it out in time), the second rule is one most people never figure out, and that is that you should be an affiliate for something through which you can actually make good money! Rather than trying to get people to buy something such as books on Amazon through your site – for which you will receive less than a dollar per sale – go for a high-end item that will give you a big commission for each sale made. Often, it is as easy to sell a single big item as it is to sell a single small item – especially because of the fact that there will be less competition for these big items – and you will make a whole lot more money when one of these sales is made.

And finally, you will not want to pick products at random and promote them “just because.” Pick products you actually know, trust, and care about, as this will come through in the manner in which you present these products, and will help lead to a lot more sales!

Each person must make their own path to success in affiliate marketing, but these rules will help you get the most out of your attempts to make money online!

Bring People Back To Your Site!

Posted by on Aug 7, 2015 in Web Traffic | 0 comments

If you are in charge of an affiliate marketing site, your first challenge will be doing what you can to get people to your site. After all, you cannot make any money through affiliate marketing if you are running a website that no one visits. But even after you have figured out what you will be able to do to get people to your site, you will need to also take steps to get people to come back to your site a second time (and a third time, and so on), as most people will not bring you money on their first visit, but they will bring you money if you can get them coming back!

If you are taking the proper steps to make money through affiliate marketing, you probably have a blog on your site, as a blog will enable you to create content on a regular basis – which is important for appealing to readers and search engines alike. And as you create content on this blog, you should also realize that content that is released in series will do a lot to encourage people to visit your site again, after they have left, as they will want to come back and find out what the next “piece of the puzzle” is in the series you are releasing.

Creating conversation on your blog – and keeping this conversation going – is going to be a major key to creating return visits as well. People typically frequent sites where they feel as though they are connected, or where they feel like they belong, and when you are able to create conversation on your site – between yourself and readers, and between readers and other readers – you will find that lots of these readers are returning to get another taste of this interaction and conversation.

And if you are hoping to branch out a little bit, you can also consider the idea of holding contests on your site on a semi-regular basis. Realize: running contests on your site does not need to cost you tons of money, either, as there are plenty of items you can give away that will not cost a fortune, and will still appeal to your visitors, so consider running contests on your site sometimes that require people to return in order to find out whether or not they have won, and you will notice that lots of the people who were on your site once are now on your site again.

More than likely, you have already applied search engine optimization to your site with the help of WebFire, in order to make sure you are getting everything you can out of your SEO, but as great as this is, there is more work to be done. Once you bring all this traffic to your site, figure out what you can do to keep this traffic coming back, and you will be on your way to enjoying the sort of success you have been hoping to enjoy on your affiliate marketing site!

Why Is Your New Website Failing?

Why Is Your New Website Failing?

A lot of people end up in a position with their new website where they are stuck wondering why on earth the site is failing to generate any serious traffic or money. When people face this problem, their first thought is often that they should be selling a different product, or should be adjusting the fundamental basis of their site – but one thing to understand and acknowledge is that there are, in fact, others who are selling the same product you are selling, and are making great money doing so! Once you grasp this fact, you start to understand that your problem is not a “product problem,” but is instead a marketing problem!

The basic question you should ask yourself, if your website is failing, is this: “If I already had lots of regular visitors on my site, would my website be a monetary success?” If the answer is “Yes,” you can safely assume your problem lies not in the product, but in the pursuit of visitors!

Of course, patience will be a big key to achieving success with your website as well, and this is something that a lot of people lack. But once you are willing to have a bit of patience to wait for your results to come around, you will start to understand exactly why a complete understanding of search engine optimization will be vital for you to have.

In order to achieve success with your website, you will want to make sure you are A) learning as much about search engine optimization as you absolutely can, and B) are using the SEO tools on WebFire to help you to take advantage of the knowledge you have gained.

Once you start learning more about SEO and start applying the tools on WebFire, you can solve your “marketing” problem, and can start making money as a result!
