3. Affiliate Marketing Beginners Basics
As we discussed in your last lesson setting up a website or blog is a great asset for your business and if you decide that it is a good option for your business, you will have to learn a few things like how to set it up and how drive traffic to it.
Which isn’t something we are going to have time to cover in this short course however you should definitely do some research on the topic.
Another thing you will want to do is build a list of contacts (email) so that you can grow your business. There is no better way to generate income on demand.
With that said, this isn’t a must for promoting affiliate programs but it will make your job easier.
Once you have a list of subscribers, who are interested in the types of products you plan to promote you will be able to send them information, updates and offers.
As we discussed in your last lesson it is very important to do your research when it comes to choosing an affiliate program to promote. The same can be said for researching your target audience.
You need to know as much about them as you can. What are their interests, where they hang out, do they have money to spend and what types of products they spend it on?
For instance, if you are promoting cosmetics, you need to know how they research, what websites do they visit?
Do they hang out on FaceBook or Twitter? Do they do most of their shopping in stores or online?
Knowing these things will help you create a solid plan for promotion and the better your conversions from visitor to customer will be.
Yet, another good reason to get to know your target audience is because once you figure out where they are it will make it much easier for you to get their attention.
For example if you find out which social media sites they use the most you can set up an account and use it as a vehicle for your promotions.
If you aren’t quite sure how to collect this type of information there are plenty of websites that offer consumer data.
One of the most important things to remember about affiliate marketing is to play to the strengths of your audience.
You should think about what they want and why they buy that way you can create campaigns that are relevant to their interests and they will be more likely to click on your ads and links.
In your next lesson 4, we will be talking about some great ways to increase your earnings.
You can learn the basics here in my onsite free guide for How to do Affiliate Marketing Online, and I have also published a book that covers the best and most simple affiliate marketing plan, to make sure you have the best chance of being a success in Internet Marketing and Blogging
It is written by someone I have known personally for nearly a decade, who earns a minimum of $400 USD *per DAY*.... YES, not per month, but per DAY from her various online business income streams.
So maybe this is someone we should be listening to, and I have her step-by-step instruction guide here for only a few dollars, not thousands of dollars in "Coaching" from some Guru.
