AFFILIATE  MARKETING  GUIDE TO  GETTING  PROFITS

 

One way to grow a business is to create a strong sales force. Building your own sales force used to be very expensive, and due to that it was a substantial barrier to  entry  for  product  creators.  Thankfully,  due  to  the  advent  of  amazing  online tracking  technology,  you  can  not  only  become  a  salesperson  yourself  for  many different products and creators, but you can also create your own products to sell.

 

 

Using affiliate technology, you can also build a sales force that can bring in multiple six figures and even millions of dollars - all without hiring employees. You only pay your sales force (affiliates) if they make a sale. As an affiliate (salesperson), you only earn money if you make a sale.

 

 

It sounds simple, and it really is. However, it’s a good idea to learn all you can about affiliate marketing before you jump in. Learning about affiliate marketing and the various ways you can maximize your earnings will push your business to the next level and take you toward being the true CEO of your business.

 

 

To be successful with making affiliate marketing profits you’ll need to find your niche, discover the right products to promote, create your own products, find the right affiliates to market them, and keep your affiliates motivated. It all starts with finding and understanding your niche.


Finding Your Niche

 


The  very  first  thing  you  need  to  do  if  you  want  to  make  money  as  an  affiliate marketer - whether you’re going to make money selling other people’s products or your own (best to do both) - is that you need to figure out who you want to work with and what niche you want to be part of.

 

 

  Who  Do  You  Want  to  Work  With?

 

One way to figure out the type of people you’d like to work with or help is to look inside yourself to find your interests and passions. If you really enjoy being around certain people and you know about their hopes, desires, and needs due to being part  of  that  audience  yourself,  that’s  one  way  to  do  it  as  you  will  already  have insight.

 

 

However,  don’t  let  this  give  you  an  excuse  not  to  do  your  research.  Your experiences, even as part of your niche audience, are subjective and real results may be very different than you imagine. Try describing your ideal customer in one or two sentences to help you move forward.

 

  Who  Serves  That  Audience  Now?

 

Once you have identified a potential niche audience, it always helps to look at the competition. After all, if this niche has no competition, is it really a profitable niche? Some people will say that you should go for the low competition niches, but it's better to go for the niche that offers enough potential customers for you to reach your income goals if your conversion rate matches industry standards.

 

 

For example, if there are 1000 potential customers, and according to your research there  is  a  4  to  7  percent  conversion  rate,  and  you  know  that  you  can  get  your materials and information in front of those 1000 customers, you may get at most

70  customers  from  a  campaign.  Is  your  price  point  high  enough  for  those  70

customers to make you profitable?


 

  What  Skills  and  Solutions  Can  You  Offer  This  Niche?

 

 

Do  you  have  specialized  education,  experience,  or  knowledge  that  makes  you particularly suited for this niche? You don’t have to be part of the audience to do well in a niche.

 

 

For example, if you have identified a niche that needs someone to advise them on products to use for their love of camping which are different from what’s out there, you can still learn about it and serve the audience even if you have no camping experience or appreciation of camping. Maybe instead of direct experience, you have  resources  that  enable  you  to  pay  people  with  subject  matter  expertise  to create your business.

 

 

  What  Makes  You  Different?

 

Always  look  at  yourself  too.  What  makes  you  different  from  your  competition? What skills can you offer to this niche that others can’t? How can you stand out from the crowd? Are you going to approach the niche in a different way than the others?  For  example, if  you’re a  business coach,  are  you  buttoned  up  or  a  free spirit? Whatever you are, you’re going to attract an entirely different segment of your audience base than someone who is different from you.

 

  Check  an  Affiliate  Network  for  Products  That  Serve  That

Audience

 

The other thing you want to do is ensure that any niche you choose is profitable. Asking yourself if it’s profitable is an important question. Just because you have internet and passion doesn’t make it a profitable niche. What makes it profitable is that the target audience exists in enough quantity and has enough money to buy the solutions you create and offer.

 

 

Once you narrow down some options, the primary considerations are whether your niche idea is profitable or not, and whether you have the skills to proceed or not - either skills you learn or skills you buy from others. Choose a niche that you like that can provide enough profit and that you know how to serve.



FINDING THE RIGHT PRODUCT
OR SERVICE TO PROMOTE

 

Now that you know who your audience is and the niche you want to be part of, it’s time  to  find  the  right  products  and/or  services  to  promote  to  them.  There  are numerous ways of finding the products or services to present to your audience.

 

 

  Problems  and  Solutions

 

Once you have an idea of who your audience is, you can focus on figuring out their problems and then locating solutions to help them. Make a list of at least three problems  that  you  want  to  solve  for  the  audience,  based  on  the  niche  you’ve chosen.

 

 

Here is an example:

 

1.  Audience:  Married  working  moms  of  school-aged  children  who  thrive  on order

2.  Problems: Keeping a family calendar, meal planning, organizing

3.  Potential  Solutions:  Digital  calendars,  DFY  meal  plans  and  shopping  lists,

organization tips and organization products

 

Once  you  have  a  list  of  problems  and  solutions,  go  to  some  known  affiliate networks to look for the products you have identified as a good fit.

 

 

A quick search on ClickBank - a popular affiliate network where you can find products in any niche to market as well as use to promote your own products  - reveals several products that you might want to promote, such as https://www.getorganizednow.com/

 

 

Don’t just start promoting that now, though. Make a list of several products. Then,

do  some  research  on  each  product.  Find  out  about  the  creator,  look  at  the


conversion rate for the product, and think about how the creator’s values and style

fit in with the brand voice you want to display.

 

If you don’t know someone who knows them to vouch for their professionalism, test them out by buying the product yourself so that you can evaluate the quality of the product and the company for their customer service. After all, as an affiliate marketer, you are turning your customers over to someone else to serve. You need to make sure they will take good care of your customers so that your audience continues to value your recommendations.


 

  Different  Programs

 

There are numerous affiliate networks that list opportunities for you to promote to your audience. Each has its own quirks and issues that you’ll have to learn about as you join a network. You can also find affiliate products through direct programs which are not listed in affiliate networks.

 

 

For example, many individual publishers like using technology like a Member.com to set up their program, in which case they won’t be listed on the affiliate platforms. To find those products, simply look up solutions using keywords that you think will find them.

 

 

For example, in the example above, we searched for Household Organization on ClickBank. Search for Household Organization on Google to find out what it shows. The first result in our case is a website called  Getorganizedgal.com which offers solutions that the audience would need and want.

 

 

However, you cannot see an affiliate program, but with more investigation she uses Teachable to deliver her courses. Teachable has an included affiliate module. You could send her an email explaining how you like her products (after you buy some) and that your audience would too if they open an affiliate program for you.

 

Another  that  shows  up  is  Cozi.com,  which  is  a  family  organizer.  It  includes  a calendar, shopping lists, to-do lists, recipes, and meal planner and even a family journal. You can promote Cozi and earn money through their affiliate program if you meet the requirements.


 

 

 

A few programs to check out are:

 

4.  JVZoo.com

5.  Affilorama.com

6.  ClickBank.com

7.  ShareASale.com

8.  Amazon Associates

9.  eBay Partner Network

10.CJ Affiliate

11.Thrive Market

12.Udemy.com

13.Skillshare.com

 

Each network has its pros and cons, and there are many more than these. You can find huge lists of affiliate networks by searching Google for "affiliate networks," and you  can  also  find  specialized networks.  For  example,  if you  want  to  sell  organic goods only, you’ll find many options.

 

 

You can also look up specific products you’d like to promote, find a link to their affiliate program, or email them for information about it. Some business owners don’t  use  affiliate  networks,  but  so  many  do  that  you’re  sure  to  find  many profitable products that you can promote. Even if you don’t see one, you can always email the creator to offer your services by showing them your social proof.

 

 

  Determining  Profitability

 

Before  you  choose  a  product  to  promote,  it’s  imperative  that  you  check  out whether the product is profitable or not. If it’s listed on an affiliate network, you can see the metrics listed to help you determine how profitable the product is. If you  are  working  directly  with  a  product  creator,  you  may  need  to  test  your assumptions after trying out the product yourself.

 

 

Here are some things to think about.

 

14.High Commissions When it comes to digital products, less than 50 percent commission is probably a waste of time.

 

15.High Sales Price If it’s a commission lower than 50 percent, is the sale price

high enough that you’d make a per-sale price that makes it worth your time?



16. Conversion Rate Most affiliate programs will list something to do with the

conversion rate, how many sales have been made, or other information to

help you determine if this is a good choice or not.

 

17.Sales Page – What does the sales page look like? While it may not please you to  know,  the  longer  sales  pages  sell  better  than  shorter  ones  for  many audiences. Is the sales page thought out? Does it convert?

 

18.Buy It When you find a product that you think you want to promote to your audience, buy the product. If you have enough influence, you may be able to get  it  free  or  a  sample  copy  of  some  kind  for  you  to  evaluate.  However, buying it as a customer is the best way to learn how they do business and whether the product is right for your audience.

 

 

19.Is There Competition? If you do a search and find other products like this one that you want to sell, that’s a good thing. You won’t have to educate your market as much if it’s already something they want and are searching for.

 

20.Can You Come Up with More Search Terms? Once you have determined that a product is something you want to promote, can you come up with more  search  terms  for  it  so  that  you  can  start  developing  content  for marketing?

 

21.How Will You Promote This Product? The other question you want to ask yourself is how you’ll promote the product. Will you do an all-out campaign or  are  you  going  to  slip  it  in  as  an  in-content  link  on  your  blog?  Will  you promote it to people already on your list? Which segment? The more you can  plan  out  exactly  how,  when  and  where  you’re  going  to  promote  the product, the more likely it is to be profitable.

 

 

Finding a profitable product isn’t really that hard if you’ve chosen a good niche that has a healthy audience clamoring for the solutions they need to make their life better. It’s your job to figure out what your niche is, the products your audience needs, and how you will present them to that audience.

 

 


You can also create your own products for the niche. Let's look at that next.


 

Another way to make a profit as an affiliate marketer is to start creating your own

products and/or services to promote to your audience too. As you work with your audience and gain customers due to the products you promote and the content you publish, you may gain insight into the audience that gives you the idea to create a brand-new product for them. Your product can be free or for a fee, depending on how you’re going to use it.

 

 

  Offering  Bonuses

 

One way that you can add your own products to the mix is by offering a bonus for the  purchase  of  a  different  product  for  which  you  are  an  affiliate.  The  bonus product offers you the ability to add them to your list, boost your revenue, and perhaps demonstrate more of what you can do for the audience regarding their problems.

 

 

Some affiliate systems enable you to add your bonus product right to their funnel on the affiliate platform (such as is offered via aMember.com or JVZoo.com) if the product creator activates that ability for you. In other cases, you may have to get creative and send the bonus another way. However, there is a lot of technology that will do it automatically for you too.

 

  Building  Your  List

 

As an affiliate marketer, you can create your own products that are only for list- building  purposes.  A  good  example  might  be  a  checklist  to  help  your  audience choose the right affiliate marketing software or help them set up their first webinar. Anything that your audience really needs and wants that is simple to create makes a handy list builder.

 

  Another  Income  Stream



Additionally, as a product creator you can create products as a separate income stream over and above your income generation as an affiliate. Maybe you can make a better cleaning organization calendar than the one that you’ve been promoting. Perhaps you have written a course about keeping your home organized that you want to market. Once you create the product, you also can recruit affiliates to make the sales for you.

 

 

As a product creator, you’ll need to ensure that you have the right software like aMember.com that helps you set up a shopping cart and even a membership site that enables you to distribute your digital products and services to your audience. You can also use any number of affiliate networks mentioned to list your products and attract affiliates to boost your income.

 

 

FINDING THE RIGHT AFFILIATES

(AND ONES TO AVOID)

 

 

 

Once you create your own products for sale, it’s time to set up an affiliate program of  your  own  so  that  you  can  maximize  your  reach.  Having  your  own  affiliate program is like having an army of salespeople on your site building your business every   single  day.   But   finding   the   right  affiliates   takes   a   little   thought   and consideration.

 

  Quality not Quantity

 

Having  1000  affiliates  will  not  help  you  if  they  are  not  good  salespeople.  If  the people who want to promote your product use unscrupulous means to make sales, that can also affect you very badly. By focusing on recruiting quality affiliates over a lot of affiliates, you can avoid most of the problems that can come with affiliates

- namely fraud and spam.


 

  Their Website

 

Check out any applicants’ websites. Do they have an active blog? Does the content fit your audience? Is the website secure? Are they following all the pertinent laws for  their  country  and  yours  regarding  spam,  privacy,  and  other  issues?  Do  they appear honest and confident based on the information you find on the website?

 

  Their Domain Name

 

One way to find out about the person behind the website is to do a "Who Is" search. Some of the websites are going to have the information hidden. If that happens, do a little more digging on to ensure that the people behind the site are honest people that you’d want to deal with in person.

 

  Their Content and Information

 

When you go to the site and read the content and information, does it speak to your audience such that they will choose to buy from them? What sort of keywords do they use? Is the content and information direct and above board? Would you feel safe sending your mother to that site to get information?

 

  Financial Validation

 

The other thing you will want to do when you get an affiliate is to ensure that they fill out all the right legal forms required. Even if you are not going to send out 1099s because  you  pay  via  third  party  like  PayPal,  getting  that  information  is  still important  because  it  establishes  their  legality  and  validates  them  in  a  way  that helps you keep your customers safe. Additionally, have they proven themselves to be effective affiliate marketers?

 

 

When you are first starting out as a product seller, you may not be able to be too picky about who becomes affiliates, but at the very least ensure that they are who they say they are, that they are not criminals, and that they serve their customers honestly and transparently. Just realize that if you choose people who are new to affiliate marketing, you need to offer training and encouragement to them so that they make more sales.



Helpful Technology for Affiliate

Marketers

 


Once you have made a choice to become an affiliate marketer, there are tools and technology that will make your job easier. The technology that is available today include website building tools, email marketing tools, market research tools, and more.

 

  Website  Tools

 

To build a highly converting website, you need to choose the right type of domain name, hosting, website builder and landing page automation so that you can get more done with less work and worry. The following tools will help you get it all done.

 

 

 

  Domain  Name

 

One of the first things you need to do to get started with your affiliate marketing profits is to buy a domain name so that you can build a website that attracts your ideal audience. Choose a name that includes a keyword, that’s short and easy to remember,  and  that  uses  a  dot  com  extension.  An  excellent  choice  for  buying domains inexpensively is Namecheap.com.

 

  Website  Hosting

 

The next thing you’re going to need after you buy your domain name is website hosting. You might want to check with the host before you buy your domain, as sometimes they offer a deal where you get the domain free by paying up front for hosting.  A  good  website  host  offers  at  least  99  percent  uptime,  good  customer service,  and  an  easy  to  navigate  website.  A  good  choice,  especially  if  you’re  a newbie  and  don’t  understand  what  you’re  doing,  is  MomWebs.com.  They  have great customer care and service.

 

  Website  Builder


 

You also need to build or have a good affiliate website built. One of the best and

most used choices for this is self-hosted WordPress. You can learn more about it at

WordPress.org. (Note: This is not the same as WordPress.com, although that dot com is run using self-hosted WordPress.) This builder is easy to use, inexpensive or even free, and what is most important is that it works great and search engines still love WordPress.

 

 

 

  Landing  Page  Builder

 

Once you get everything done, you’re going to need some form of landing page builder. Now, you can do this for free using self-hosted WordPress just by making a new page, but it won’t have as much automation on it.

 

One thing that can help you earn more money is automation so that you don’t have to do everything manually. A good choice for automated landing page software is Instapage.com. If you use a robust system like Infusionsoft.com for your marketing, you already have it included. This type of software will automate your funnels in a way that will seem to turn your site into an ATM some days.

 

  Email  Marketing

 

Email marketing is not something you can skip out on. It’s one of the most effective and valuable forms of marketing that exists today. Even social media marketing cannot match the power of email marketing. This means you’re going to need to both capture leads and send out emails automatically. One of the most popular choices today is AWeber.com although there is also a lot of love for ConvertKit.com and  ActiveCampaign.com.  These,  along  with  your  landing  page  builder,  will automate so much.

 

  Market  Research

 

As an affiliate marketer, you’re  going to have to do a lot of market research to ensure your efforts do not go wasted. If you don’t do the research, you’ll take a lot of  action  that  is  not  going  to  produce  results.  Don’t  make  assumptions;  do  the research. You can research your competitors  using software like iSpionage.com, and you can research trending topics using something like Google Trends.


  Traffic  Generation

 

Investing in tools to help with traffic generation is also a meaningful way to create a successful affiliate marketing business. After all, you need a lot of targeted traffic to get the results you wanted when you set your goals and objectives.

 

22.AdEspresso.com  by  Hootsuite    If  you  plan  to  run  a  lot  of  ads  on  social media, this app is something that is going to help you make it easier. You’ll be able to run ads that are beautiful and optimized in all the top social media platforms.

 

 

23.Facebook  Ads    You  can  use  Facebook  directly  to  do  retargeting  and remarketing campaigns by using the Facebook pixel on your site. Then you run an ad that only former visitors see, which has been shown to increase traffic and sales.

 

24.RecurPost.com This software, once set up, will grab your blog posts and push  them  out  to  the  social  media  sites  you  recommend  randomly  and automatically.

 

 

Don’t forget to send an email out too. When you have a new blog post, go ahead and  tell  your  email  audience  about  it  using  your  email  marketing  software’s automatic blog post sharing features.

 

  Tracking  and  Converting

 

The other tools you need to help you become a profitable affiliate marketer are tools  that  help  you  track  the  effectiveness  of  your  efforts  and  convert  your audience.  Every  website  needs  to  install  Google  Analytics.  It’s free and  it  works great. After all, Google is still the leading search engine. That means you need to follow their recommendations.

 

 

For link tracking, a good choice is PrettyLinks.com. You can set up your website so that any time you mention specific terms, the software automatically inserts an affiliate link in that term. That’s a great way to automate your recommendations and track clicks and conversions.

 

 

   Content  Marketing


One of the ways you’re going to generate more traffic for your ideal target audience is to publish content that they’ll be interested in. In order to produce compelling content, you’ll need to do your research, ensure it’s understandable, and that it’s attractive. Not only that - you also want to ensure that you are posting content on a consistent and regular basis. These tools can help you accomplish that.

 

25.Research When you want to do research, the most natural place to go is of course Google Search and Google Website Tools. That is where you should start. But there is also wonderful paid software that you can use even more effectively  depending  on  what  you  are  researching.  A  few  tools  you  may want  to  try  are  social  media platform  searches, competitor searches,  and their internal data by buying their products.

 

 

26.Editing When you publish anything, whether it’s a blog post or a product, you want to ensure that it’s readable to your audience. To accomplish that, first you need to know who the audience is and what terms they like using, then you need to be native in the language or hire someone who can help. You can also use tools like Grammarly.com to help you edit. However, the main issue is that if you don’t know what is right, the software can confuse you.

 

27.Graphics At some point, you’ll want to create graphics to add more interest to  blog  posts,  social  media  updates,  to  create  eBooks  and  more.  A  good option for a non-graphic designer is to try Canva.com, although there is merit in hiring an experienced graphic designer to do that for you too.

 

28.Scheduling - There is a lot to do when it comes to marketing and scheduling, as well as planning what you are going to do to market your affiliate business. But software like CoSchedule.com can help; this is an entire marketing suite that  has  a  marketing  calendar,  a  content  organizer,  social  organizer,  and more all in one spot.

 

 

You may also need to hire someone to help you plan and create content for your affiliate business. You don’t have to do everything yourself. You can hire a content writer to help, and you can also use private label rights content to help you fill in the gaps in your content.



Using helpful technology that is made for marketers is a vital way to get ahead as an affiliate marketer. Always read the fine print for any technology you want to buy or  use,  because  some  of  them  expressly  prohibit  activities  that  include  affiliate marketing. It’s always good practice to read the rules because it’ll also give you full insight on using each tool you buy.


MARKETING FOR MORE SALES AND PROFIT

 

 

 

As  an  affiliate  marketer,  it’s  going  to  become  clear  that  the  saying,  "always  be marketing" applies to you in a big way. For the word to get out about the solutions you  are  marketing,  you  have  to  tell  people  and  promote.  Thankfully  there  are numerous   ways   that  you   can   promote  your   affiliate  business   that  are  not expensive, and some are even free other than the time it takes to do them.

 

 

Remember that you may have different aspects of your business to market too. You will need to market your own affiliate program to those who might want to make money. You will need to market the products you create or find to those who need them. Therefore, it’s a business to business and business to customer situation, and they should be marketed totally separately from one another.

 

 

You can market both in the same way, but the material will look different based on the audience and the product you’re promoting. The primary way to market your business is via content marketing.

 

  Content Marketing

 

This type of marketing includes any kind of marketing you are doing with content - including social media marketing, blogging, and email marketing. Create a plan for every  single  product  that  you  want  to  promote.  Know  who  you’re  creating  the content for, where it will appear, and what the call to action should be.


 

 

 

  Search Engine Optimization

 

Learn what you can about SEO because it’s essential for your success. It will help you create better headlines, better subject lines, and indeed much better content that is targeted correctly. Remember that SEO includes both on-page and off-page options - from internal link building to getting links to your work, and all should be considered. Adding software like Yoast SEO to your blog can help a lot.

 

  Paid Marketing

 

The most successful affiliate marketers use paid marketing in addition to the free choices. Remember that there really isn’t any free choice, though. You’ll either use your own time or your own money. Which you choose depends on the priorities you have and the skills you possess.

 

  Social Media Marketing

 

Develop each platform that you use so that it shows your brand voice and the image you want to project on the world. Use the content you create to get the word out to the masses regularly - using both free and paid options.

 

  Email Marketing

 

Email marketing is part of content marketing, but it needs to be stressed that email marketing  is  not  something you  can skip  if you  want  to be a  successful  affiliate marketer long term. Building your own list based on your target audience is what’s going to keep you in business, even as your ideal audience grows and changes with time and social media platforms die out.

 

  Affiliates

 

We  already  talked  about  starting  your  own  affiliate  program  to  sell  your  own products that you create based on what your audience needs. This is an excellent way to generate buzz and get the word out faster about any product you produce. Once  you  have  your  own  products,  start  bringing  on  affiliates.  Start  with  your happiest customers and train them to be effective money-generating affiliates.



 Joint Venture Partnerships

 

One way to market your business is to form partnerships with others who serve the same audience as you do with complementary products and services. By the way, these are also opportunities for you to promote their products as an affiliate and vice versa.

 

 

The way a JV works is that you agree to work together for a common cause on a temporary or long-term basis, while remaining separate business for everything but the joint project. For example, you might get together with a bunch of your friends with affiliate programs, who offer programs to working moms of school-age kids such as meal planning, household organization, self-improvement and more.

 

 

You can put on a webinar with a few different experts in this area, each offering their own product or service to the audience. Everyone markets the event together at the same time to create buzz. Then you host the webinar live, and you can even replay it as live to generate even more leads.

 

 

The only way to make more sales and profit is to market more. Get more people involved  and  ensure  that  as  many  people  as  possible  are  talking  about  your products and services. Don’t be afraid to aggressively tell your audience about your offers. After all, you know they work, and you are proud of them. Why wouldn’t you tell people about them as much as you can?

 

 

 

THE STEPS TO GETTING STARTED

 

 

 

Every successful venture starts with learning and then planning. Use this getting started list to help you truly get organized and take that first step toward affiliate marketing profits.


1. Know Your Audience Conduct research so that you know as much as you can about your audience. Where do they hang out? What keeps them up at night. Who do they like getting info from?

 

2. Know Your Audience’s Pain Points What are at least three pain points that you can solve with your knowledge and the products you have created or discovered?
