What is Good Data for Affiliate Marketing?
I have pondered these questions for some time as I attempt to determine how to make my sites convert better, and how to make my content, reviews, etc. more appealing to potential customers.
For those of you in Affiliate Marketing, what have you found to be the most important pieces of information as you build pages, discover new products to promote, and Drive traffic to your sites?
Are there two or three most important bits of data that simply are the linch-pins for affiliate marketers?
Here is my 2 cents, and I would love to hear your comments:
1.) How popular is the product or the category of product itself?
2.) What niches does this product fit in and how can it be positioned for other niches?
3.) The product providers sales page - is it good enough, and does it contain text, images, videos, audios, etc. that I can use to build a string affiliate page?
4.) Are there articles promoting this product that I can get additional content ideas from to strengthen my sites ability to pull traffic and get better SEO?
5.) Does the affiliate site (if the product is under a site) offer single sign on (like Clickbank) or is it more like a Linkshare where you need permission from each vendor? Or does the vendor use their own stand alone affiliate system?
6.) If the product is under a site like Clickbank or Linkshare or similar, do they provide accurate and useful statistics?
These are just 6 I put out there, but I wold love to hear other Affiliate marketers take on how and what they consider to be essential data for building and promoting affiliate sites.
To all of you...stay thirsty my friends!
