Affiliate marketing is my choice, but how?

Hi all,

I have been here many months but have not earned a single penny yet.
I can only blame myself not taking much action.

During this time, i bought a WSO and tried some promoting clickbank products using youtube. It was far from success, but i have learnt that how powerful youtube is in google ranking as well as getting free traffic. Hence, mastering youtube is one of the target i must accomplish.

Doing the WSO also allowed me to realize that i am able to work on a project continuously and focused when i am getting enough guidance and have a clear direction. This is exactly what i lacked in doing affiliate marketing. I end up wondering what to do, and waste a lot of time reading again and again. Worrying that i may make mistake also prevented me from taking action. :confused:

And so, please recommend me where/which guides should i follow to learn affiliate marketing.
I need to be guided step by step and I am thinking of getting into the WarRoom.
Is it a good place to get the info & guidance that i need?
Or is there other guides/blueprints that you guys like to recommend?

Do let me know what you guys think.

Cheers.

    Maybe... you could try this method to promote affiliate products:
    1. Instead of promoting Clickbank products, you could try promoting WSOs.
    It's easier to make money with WSO because the conversion is higher and the commission is paid directly into your Paypal account. So, you can feel 'the money' right away
    2. You could use Warriorplus/ JVzoo to become WSO affiliates
    3. Pick $9 WSO that give 100% commissons
    4. Buy an adspace through Buy Sell Ads
    5. Promote your WSO affiliate product on a website that related with IM/ make money online niche

    To learn about Affiliate Marketing, War Room will be your best choice. You'll get so much valuable stuff about AM in there. War room is surely the best place to learn about IM.

    have you tried backlinking?
    Before you build a site where you sell no more than one item at a time.
    Write a good article, trying to use keywords.
    And try to find backlinks to optimize search engine to your site.
    This way you should start getting many view.
    Then you should start selling.
    The hardest part of this work, is to receive traffic.
    I hope this information can be useful.

    You can really use any promotional methods that you want to use...if you are wanting to focus on getting traffic from organic search, the you can focus on youtube promotion, blogging, & article syndication.

    Let me give you a piece of advice when it comes to affiliate marketing...you can make a lot more money by making a lot less sales if you focus on residual income affiliate programs...they are awesome!

    You should be building your email list. Your main job as an affiliate is to send traffic. If you build your email list you have reusable traffic you can send to any offer you want.

    Youtube, PPC, Facebook, SEO, etc should all be used to build your email list.

    Hope that helps!

    What are you looking to learn specifically? There are many disciplines within IM. For example, I am very successful with Amazon affiliate sites, specifically.

    You need to determine what discipline you'd like to get involved in, learn about it, and stay focused on it. That's where you need to start.

    I love forum marketing. Not crap spam forum marketing. Interacting with people and using each forums advantages to maximize my exposure and create free leads. You will need a big list and there are many ways to do that. First off you need YOUR OWN SQUEEZE PAGE. Do not send people straight to the product page or the guy you are promoting for will be loving you for it. Every time some leaves they get the lead and you get nothing for your money and effort. That is not fun I have been there.

    Add a free offer to your squeeze page get them on your list and then build a rapport with them then slowly add some offers. If you can't do a squeeze page simply set-up a hosted web form for your offer. Google it! Then take all the money you make and spend it on some really good advertising.
    Please since you are new and not a PPC expert don't use that method. You will lose your shirt and more than likely make no money in the process. That only applies to the IM niche. The cost per click is so high and you will be competing with pros who have staffing to take care of it for them and their people are good. Not to mention 15k per month on advertising is nothing to them. Slow and steady is your route. I hope that helps

    Hi Story, You have LOTS of options. I once wrote an article called "53 Ways To Make Money With Affiliate Programs" and I certainly didn't cover them all.

    A wonderful thing about affiliate marketing is that you can design your own business, based on your skills and interests, and especially your strengths. If you enjoy using YouTube to market products, build your business around that.

    Here's one thing to think about... Are you just trying to earn money, or are you creating a business, an asset you might sell one day? If you collect email addresses, you're creating an asset. If you build a website containing useful, interesting articles, you're creating an asset.

    I've also written an Affiliate Program Tutorial, which I believe describes the method which gives beginners their best chance of success.

    Digital products are always in great demand. Many will be happy to download within minutes of purchasing the product. This is the reason why digital products are popular than physical products.

    Hi Story,

    I build a review site with 3 articles describing product experience and 3 articles about product information and 1 article about product review
    All articles are high quality above 500 words and product review article is 1000 words
    All articles have 2 images in it.
    All articles are SEO optimized.
    I started publishing 1 article per day from last Monday
    Yesterday (on Sunday) I posted final review article (Only this article has 3 cloaked affiliate link)
    Today when I logged in clickbank, there was 1 sale of $49!

    This is my blueprint and I am planning to add at 10 more product review sites

    You can also read this post of Alexa Simth for selecting CB product

    You should use more than YouTube to promote a product. Try using YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and article marketing. I have lots of articles on my site about building an affiliate business, getting traffic and making money online. Maybe they could help you.

    I also started out with CB products. But moved to IM product reviews and I am in the process of building a mailing list. It's takes some time to build a list but well worth the effort. I search for IM products that have a chance at earning and report on the ones that are duds. Never give up!
