I want to validate an affiliate business model. I am new in Internet marketing and thinking about how it can work in the affiliate marketing space.
What is in my mind is that:
a) I would not want direct linking i.e. the traffic should go to affiliate offer from my website/landing page's CTA.
b) Have thought of making a placeholder for Internet marketing (for example rizim.com). The purpose of placeholder is to provide space for content on Internet marketing.
[I can use rizim.com for link structuring (I haven't thought how it would actually work but the concept seems appealing that instead of using long and weird affiliate's URL something like rizim.com/deal1 sounds easier)].
c) Have thought of making website for each niche (for example nichesite.com). There will be a separate and specific landing page for each product leading to affiliate offer through CTA button i.e. nichesite.com/deal1.
[I can use nichesite.com/deal1 for link structuring (I haven't thought how it would actually work but the concept seems appealing that instead of using long and weird affiliate's URL something like nichesite.com/deal1 sounds easier)].
1) Would there be any advantage of having Internet marketing placeholder i.e. rizim.com.
2) Can I use rizim.com's subpage as a niche site (rizim.com/niche) and subsequently the product landing page i.e. rizim.com/niche/deal1 (that is not using specific website for niche i.e. nichesite.com)
3) Would there be any issue of losing traffic in case I maintain both Internet marketing placeholder (rizim.com) and niche website (nichesite.com) / product landing page (nichesite.com/deal1).
Hope it was not all confusing or overwhelming for you. Please feel free to contact in case you need any clarification.
