    No offense but nobody can offer you specific advice without more information from you. Other than that, use the search function of this forum and you'll find countless threads that will help you.

  • What I believe that you need to do is to get an auto responder and set it up for automatically getting your emails out before you even think about driving traffic to your website or opt in page. next always drive your traffic to an Opt in (squeeze page) before directing it to your site or affiliate offer. that way you continue to build your list that you can sell to.
    Hope This helps let me know if you have any more questions and pm me.

    You give out very little information! What's your action plan like? But my recommendations to drive traffic to your affiliate site would be to use social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, also trying to build a list is going to help you with aff. offers.


    I can't provide you much help since you're being very broad with your question, but hope you do well - good luck!

    *Identify the keywords you are targeting.
    *Setup Google alerts
    *Use Google alerts and visit the sites where there's a discussion happening about your keywords (this may be a blog, forum, yahoo answers etc)
    *Add value to the discussion with your useful comments.
    *Don't spam the blogs / forums with your links. Build some reputation & trust before you start recommending your link/website or adding a signature link.

    There are different marketing strategies you can apply to drive traffic.
    Examples:
    1. Social Networking - can be free or paid.
    - Facebook
    - Twitter
    - LinkedIn
    - Google
    - Youtube
    2. Content Marketing
    3. SEO
    4. Banner Advertising
    5. Solo Ads
    6. Free Classifieds
    7. Forum Marketing

    BUT don't get overwhelmed with that. Just focus on what works best for you and be consistent doing that.

    Good luck!

    Gela has all the right ideas.

    The only addition I have would be ot not waste your time on SEO for a strictly affiliate website.

    Google and all their Zoo animal algorithm's hate affiliate websites and the massive blackhat SEO it takes to rank them for worthwhile traffic.

    Chall has a great idea in a blog since with a blog you can focus on QUALITY content daily that truly helps people and Google will rank your site based on it's relevance and authority to the niche in question.

    Content will always outdo massive backlinking techniques (unless we're talking about Blogger.com or Youtube or another Google sister site).

    Were I just starting from scratch I would learn how to monetize FB for free (which I still do), this forum, and Youtube for best results if you're sold on an affiliate website.

    Just like other marketing channels, the success of affiliate marketing depends on delivering great content, gripping offers and brand resonance. Affiliate marketing is frequently synonymous with coupon marketing. However many affiliate sites are finding bigger opportunities and greater success in providing authentic content and unique shopping experiences for their customers.

    Affiliate marketplace is complicated and has many layers of marketing that are executed by both the publisher & the advertiser at the same time.
    The advertiser gives irresistible headlines and offers to the publisher. The more lucrative the offer, the more visibility the advertiser will earn.

    The success of the publisher depends on executing a complete suite of their own marketing channels. It is imperative for the performance based, affiliate publishers to build a loyal following of their own, attracting audience through earned and paid media, while maintaining a unique community.

    Advertisers can optimize their programme to better performance in the year 2014 in the following ways:
    1) Creating exclusive content for groups of affiliates. Example: loyalty, shopping, coupon, niche.
    2) Devise a discount strategy exclusively for affiliate channel.
    3) Creating content guidelines for your publishers

    Affiliate marketing being a loaded term has both positive and negative implications for marketing directors to C-Suite execs, it can be a very effective place for e-commerce retailers to find new customers, advertise and drive sales.
