Newbie - Affiliate Marketing

26 replies
Okay so I am looking to get started in the affiliate marketing career and I read up on a few strategies like:

Create a blog
Youtube videos
PPC Campaigns
Email Marketing
Landing Pages

I know that I am on the right track but my question is, could you guys share a method for affiliate marketing that worked best for you. Was it any of these options, which one is it and how long did it take before you were successful.

I'm mostly looking for a mentor that has been successful in this field of marketing.

    2. Setup a squeeze page and give a 10 page report that offers HUGE VALUE
    3. On your thank you page use a strong call to action to get the click to the affiliate offer
    4. Setup a Facebook campaign to test this offer for $10, make sure to use the correct targeting
    5. Setup tracking pixel to test the success of your creation, and to have a look alike audience in case the campaign is successful
    6. Go through steps 1-5 in another niche.

    Hope that helps...

      Great post, here is everything you need to do right here.

        HDRIDER makes a very important point. Because there seem to be many ways to earn affiliate commissions, and I've started and stopped more than I can remember.

        It wasn't until I decided on a business model-and got a mentor with success in that particular model- that I have begun to get real traction.

        Maybe your question should be "who do I want to help?" Pick a niche you might like, then decide a business model, "How will you help them" then you can determine how you can deliver that help; blog, email, reports, affiliate products, PLR, Video, Coaching. Etc.

        Remember, the whole purpose of a business is to acquire customers, what you do for them in the long run will determine your success.

        Stay in touch, lets see how you do

    As far as affiliate marketing goes, I've had the most success with ranking YouTube videos. Specifically I remember I had a video rank #3 for the Paleo Diet keywords, even at the #3 spot I was still generating about 300 hits to my links daily, which resulted in about 10-15 sales daily.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9934650].message }}
    • Nice!! Yeah I heard of this strategy from a recent webinar where you contact a top ranking video on Youtube and offer to split commission if they added your link. Not sure if I want to do that but maybe create my own videos.

    Your mentioned list are correct... doing this kind of job it's a bit hard but if marketing is your forte no doubt you can do it fastly... but it takes time before you reach this kind of method.. you can watch some tutorial videos on youtube.

    You are on the right track. But make sure you choose the best affiliate program that pays you and gives value to your referrals as well. Do not sign up just because you are getting $100 or $200 per sign. Even if you get $25 or $50 from an affiliate program that is fine if they record each and every sale.

    I would like to share a method that worked for me. First write a review about any affiliate program. In my case )A Small Orange hosting) on your blog. Then find a high traffic blog and publish a guest post, provide real value and then add a link from the article body or author bio to the article published on your blog.

    Another method is to share your affiliate link on Facebook groups Especially active tech group. You will now and then find a newbie asking for advice. Give him good advice and then send your affiliate link with coupon code via pm.

    Twitter works for me. Use proper hash tags, do not post the same thing over and over again. Talk to people, help them out, engage with them and once in a while promote your affiliate link.

    Please make sure that you stick to 1 or 2 affiliate program. Do not promote different products. For example, I promote A small orange hosting because I use their services. Once in 3 months, I send a newsletter to my subscribers and I encourage them to start blogging. I provide detailed instructions and some where I add my hosting affiliate link and trust me it works.

    I have a pretty extensive post on affiliate marketing and how to do it here:
    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post9876010

    Often you need more than just bullet points. One thing I would also recommend is checking out:
    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ffic-tips.html

    That will give you still further ideas on traffic generation to your landing pages (and incidentally I wouldn't start a blog at first. My post above goes into more detail on this).

    You might want to check out Affiloblueprint by Mark Ling. It is incredibly comprehensive, and there's a community aspect to it that you'll benefit from as a newbie.

    I always see so many so called strategies. Post #11 is best IMHO gettng paid is about getting your product seen massively. Find out all the free traffic methods if you have to and then go for paid when you can if you want to. The youtube advice was good as well that should be one of your free methods. Find out how to get an affiliate product to advertise.

    Here are some tips that will help you build your affiliate business.

    1.) Find a Hungry niche with rabid buyers ex: Weight Loss
    2.) Create a giveaway and landing page.
    3.) Provide valuable content and solutions to your prospects.
    4.) Drive traffic to your landing page (free: forum/blogging/social media, paid: solos/banners etc

    From their rinse and repeat, my recommendation is to study your niche and never give up.

    It's simple but it takes time to understand and implement and of course the right mindset.

    Hi,

    What was frustrating for me in the beginning was the technical stuff, like creating websites and blogs. Wordpress is the way to go, but even that can be confusing in the beginning. I would suggest saving up some money and investing in Optimize Press. It is fantastic for creating squeeze pages, sale pages, funnels, webinar pagers and membership sites with video. I think it's worth it for all the time it will save you and then you can concentrate on other things such as marketing and driving traffic!

    I am also a newbie and I have found a powerful company who walk you through everything. Trying it on your own can take a lot of time and can be off-putting. There is so much to consider. If you can find a good affiliate to work with that you can partner with go for it. You may also be able to do it on your own..but it is a little like driving a car. It's easier to have someone teach you rather than try to work it out all by yourself. If you want a connection just message me privately and I can send you through. These guys are the real deal and care about your success.......Jennifer

    In my axperience, you can build your list by making product in WSO and attract many affiliate from muncheye/jvnotify. After you get some list from your product, you can promote your affiliate link in your list easily

    Try to make new list by make new product again every month and launch it on WSO. Then make relationship to your list by makijng a bonuses avery month

    The main thing is make product> sell it> build list> make relationship> promote aff. offer> make money then..

    I currently use all of those strategies as an affiliate...

    As they each have their benefit depending upon where I am advertising.

    Bing is a great place to start as the clicks are about as cheap as they can get.

    (and very targeted, too)

    Blogging and email marketing is the winning combination for me. I write alot, so this comes easy for me. Make sure you give good info in everything that you do, and always drive people back to your affiliate link so that you can get your commissions. Keep building up your email list, and search for an affiliate product that is:

    - Highly convertible
    - Low refund rate
    - Good product
    - Has the ability for recurring income

    You have to find a way to keep making money from the customers that you generate.
