What's The Traffic Goldmine For Affiliate Marketing?

22 replies
Affiliate marketing can get a bit overwelming at first but as you go along you will learn stuff. I think forums are a good place but I am not so sure. What do you guys think?

    Forums CAN be helpful if you know HOW to read them and WHAT to do with the information

    HOW TO READ FORUMS
    - don't expect all the answers in ONE thread - you'll have to look for fragments and piece them together
    - look for patterns - if different people keep saying the same stuff, investigate further. Usually, where there's smoke, there's fire

    WHAT TO DO WITH FORUM TRAFFIC INFO
    - crossreference with blog posts - once you have a shortlist of traffic solutions you'd like to try out, crossreference with blog posts like reviews, case studies, or other HELPFUL content that gives you a clear idea of HOW to generate that type of traffic and what its PROS and CONS are
    - FAIL QUICKLY - set up your traffic generation methods and resolve to do them correctly. After this, resolve to FAIL QUICKLY. Some just won't pan out. Find them as soon as possible so you don't waste time and money
    - FOCUS ON WHAT WORKS - some methods work for some and not for others. Focus on what works for you and optimize
    - SCALE UP - Don't just stop after you find something what works, scale it up!

    Do you mean.. you think forums are a good place to learn traffic for affiliate marketing, but you are not sure?


    I think the Warrior Forum is a good place to learn traffic for affiliate marketing depending on who you listen to and follow.


    Traffic Goldmine?


    Most seasoned affiliate marketers to include super affiliates will advise to try it yourself and learn from your efforts both good and bad.


    The idea is after you try it yourself there is less confusion.

    I don't think there is any goldmine per say.

    Different traffic sources can work well for different niches.

    Forums can be a good place to learn.

    See what traffic source works best for you. Forums can work depending on your niche. You can join relevant forums and help people with their questions.

    In addition to forums you can try Quora as well.

    Now I see that we can't depend on only search engine traffic, if we do so, we would be leaving money on the table..

    YouTube, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and other social media websites should be considered....

    YouTube has become the second largest search engine so please don't ignore it....

    Balance your SEO work to get traffic from all search engines. Not just Google, but Bing, Yahoo and many emerging new search engines....

    Make solid business model and advertise offline too and let users type your website address in their browser...

    Internet marketers find gold mines of traffic all the time.

    They mine the gold until there is nothing left but dirt, dust and a big hole

    Then they sell you the map to this mine

      And they create their own traffic/blog networks on temporary proxy servers where you can join the networks and "pay" for fake traffic/blog backlinks. In the end your business "Takes it in the end."

      Yeah, no one is willing to share a gold mine, which is reasonable. Though, I don't think that newbies should start IM looking for such easy money. Even if they find gold by any chance, chances they will lose it due to lack of experience are huge.

  • The most important thing with affilliate marking is finding the right 1 for you and you can learn a lot about different affiliate programs in forums.


    As for getting traffic I recommend social media, blogging and most of all building your own email list

    Forums are great, but on not all of them, you will be able to promote your website.
    Reddit has more than a million small forums (subreddits), which are highly targeted. Reddit is absolutely my favorite place to promote my projects.

    Another great place for extra traffic is Quora. The questions are highly targeted. When you'll answer a question, everyone who follows the question will see it. Not to mention all other people in the future.

    Traffic Gold mine I beleive is organic white hat traffic. When your website ranks well within the search engines, you will be able to gain free TARGETED traffic to your affiliate links. Your website can rank well for multiple keywords and after doing great SEO work, your site can rank for multiple words that are searched heavily within the search engines. Those searches will turn into paying customers for years to come. Your able to turn those profits into PPC traffic where you utilize Bing, and Google Adwords to garner even more traffic to your sites. Even not so popular PPC networks will turn a profit for the amount paid into them. A good way to determine that is if your website ranks well in the search engines than it should do well with PPC. You can really get good traffic on Facebook, Twitter, and other popular platforms as well. Your cost for advertising vs profit should allow you to gain full time income. Some affiliate marketers become millionaires from just one website.

    Black hat can be a goldmine too but hard to be sustained over the long haul. The tecniques are considered bad, even today. Not like the old days where it was a little more lenient, they have really cracked down on these techniques making it harder to obtain a money making affiliate endevour for the long haul. Your links and work will get gobbled up over time which will make you lose your income. SO white technques are better.

    Focus on becoming a great content creator. And then pair it with a product which has an good affiliate program. I'd focus on Youtube for short term - faster to rank. And Blog for long term organic traffic

  • I think, over time, YouTube is the best. If you can have a blog that mirrors the YouTube posts, you will do just fine. You just have to make sure you post minimum once a week. Better every other day.

    Forums are great, but your posts can get buried quickly and nobody will see it again.

    If you have the time to make YouTube videos, blog posts, interact on forums and social media, you will have a great lead generation for free.

    Forums are still one of the big traffic goldmines going into 2019. It is a good platform from which to build your email list from which you can increase your earnings. It is also a good place to build your reputation bysharing quality information and giving good advice.

    Almost every traffic can be a goldmine if you know your way around it and your offer converts. If you're a beginner, choose one traffic source and master it.
