You can NEVER learn too much about Affiliate Marketing.
So here is a review of an informative e-book I downloaded on the topic … with an idea (I love ideas).
There are many ways to promote an online product. To get started you need the essentials:
- A blog
- An opt-in form
- An auto-responder
- A product/s
Now what goes on that blog is the “quick sand” – the content that will attract potential customers or repel them.
Which do you prefer … I agree. You want to attract, or “pre-sell” a product that will stimulate an interest to buy in a viewer.
The current rule of thumb is the 80/20 rule – 80% informative and useful content, 20% sales/biz content. You could do 70/30, or push it too 50/50. But the message here stands: Provide some kind of compelling content to captivate your viewers.
The ABSOLUTE essentials:
- Useful content for your viewers (not you)
- Building the know, like, trust factor through your content
Alright, you have the basics. But how do you find out what your viewers are interested in?
Affiliate Supremacy shows you – exactly – how to find what people are looking for, what’s popular, regardless of what your “niche” is, by doing searches on You Tube, Amazon, Google, etc.
Here’s the idea – creating individual websites as “Money sites” – actually you can do this now just by choosing a Magazine style Wordpress Theme for your blog and write reviews on products you’re an affiliate for along with useful content.
Craig Dawber, the Author, tells you step-by-step how to do this and what I really liked about this was not only his approach, but his integrity in sharing his knowledge – NO HYPE!
One nice surprise when I purchased this e-book was this Bonus: List Building Manifesto.
There’s a lot of buzz going around about “List Building” and with all the “bells and whistles” that some Affiliate programs are promising, the one thing you need to do regardless – is simple and unavoidable, is this: just doing the work required on a regular basis to build a mailing list.
For $9.97 “Affiliate Supremacy” is packed with smart, doable, how to’s, and the Bonuses are worthy of your attention …
