What methods should I use when Affiliate Marketing?

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by TechyRadhika, Aug 13, 2010.

    I really want the quickest and easiest way to generate affiliate sales, and it has to be 100% free. Also, I can't post pictures, videos, or audio of myself.

    Are there any recommended ways, products, etc.?

    I don't want a full-time income, I just want to get started, to get something out of Internet Marketing.

    Any suggestions?

    Write articles and post them to article directories, guest blog in top blogs

    This is the easiest way

    Sounds like the easiest way - but does it get you any profits at all?
    It sounds like a very unreliable way to build profile and trust.

    How about ways that'd get me, oh, 5 sales a month, minimum?

    In addition to write and submit articles, you can use free classifieds:

    Find some suitable classified ad sites to post your ad on. Here are some sites:
    • Craig’s List
    • US Free Ads
    • ClassifiedAds.com
    • Kijiji
    • Business Opportunity Classifieds
    • Oodle
    • AdPost.com
    Find the correct category for your ad. This is important as your ad could be deleted if you post it in the wrong place. Also make sure that what you are advertising is permitted on that particular website.

    Another method is traffic exchanges: Join for instance traffichoopla.com
    You can earn credits by viewing other peoples web pages and spend credits on banner advertising or displaying your web pages to others.

    Important: Always go for targeted traffic (people who actually are interested in what you offer).

    Stay away from traffic exchanges, safelists and all that stuff! It's just worthless, waste of time and for spammers.

    You should go the traditional way. Do a little keyword research in your niche (Market Samurai or Google Keyword tool), set up a website and write products review. A lot of places don't allow direct affiliate links, that's why you should have your own website.

    Actual promotional methods may include:
    - blog posts
    - article directories
    - forum posts with signature
    - social bookmarking sites

    Try to focus mostly on article marketing and similar methods. I do OK with affiliate programs myself by just by submitting to Ezine Articles.

    Looks good. The most important part is your blog and the email list, build a tribe of followers and be sure to focus on writing quality content.

    Email lists can bring in huge profits, build a landing page and offer free content to entice people.

    Looks like your list of free marketing techniques is fairly complete. Some people use Yahoo answers to generate some sales as well. I've never used that before but it might be something worth checking out.

    I have tried to post an answer on Yahoo, and did get a viewer or the person who questioned to click on my blog (Analytics rules!)
    It's a good way - but...not for now.

    Getting the others set up is hard enough.

    Only article marketing? Hmm.
    I might try that, since I don't believe I am knowledgable enough about ANY topic to earn money from it through blogging/email list.

    You've got to do it correctly though. First, you need to find some decently searched low competition keywords. I would highly recommend you use either Micro Niche Finder or Market Samurai to help you do this. Your main objective is going to be to get article views by ranking high in Google. Get that 1% kw density, and distribute to ISnare if at all possible.

    Alright. I'm thinking of a few...

    1. 1,550,000 results on Google.
    With according to WordStream - A full bar of searches.
    2. 1,250,000/147,000 results on Google.
    With a full bar on Wordstream/Nothing.
    3. 1,290,000 results on Google.
    With a full bar on Wordstream.

    I agree with article writing and create a personal blog to build up your email list. Look at my market section and see if maybe you want to jump in it. Good luck!
