Advertising Methods That are Good for Affiliates

metod for advertising

Many people love affiliate marketing because it’s easy. Anyone who’s a newbie can make money online through affiliate marketing. No marketing experience or knowledge needed to get started.

The purpose of the advertising campaigns is to get traffic to your affiliate page and start making sales to earn commissions. The point is so clear here: all you need is to get traffic—relevant traffic—to your page.

In this article I want to share with you some useful traffic generation methods that are most commonly used by affiliates just like you.

Link Building

It is one of the most essential parts of the SEO. Link building can help you boost your rankings tremendously.

SEO has advantage over other advertising methods. The first one is that it can get you a free traffic. Always you’ll never have to pay anything to be present in #1 Google SERPs. Second, it’s good for long term traffic generation. You’ll receive traffic as long as you’re in the first page.

Social Media and Viral Campaigns

Social media marketing is a great way to generate huge amount of traffic to your website in the least time possible.

Facebook ads

Facebook is the most useful and easy-to-use platform to bring traffic to your website. This is a rule of thumb. Facebook is one of the most visited websites in the US and around the globe.

The huge number of traffic that Facebook receives annually should make you certain that you’re going to reach your audience or niche market so easily.

Facebook has around 1.54 billion users. This astronomical number is enough to reach you target market.

The nature of any social media is sharing, liking, etc. so that it goes to the most number of target market possible.

Facebook adverts are an effective way to reach your target audience. There are two types of Facebook ad: right side ad and news feed ad.

The most common ways on Facebook is to either direct traffic from your ad directly to your website, or to create a Facebook page.

Adwords

Adwords is a PPC advertising ad network owned by Google. If you want to target traffic-rich keywords to reach your audience fast, you can do this with Adwords.

The best thing about Adwords is that you don’t have any budget constraints. You can start your campaign and see how well you can do with any budget.

Adwords makes you compete for the best ad placement which has the highest potential to receive traffic. The better the place for specific keyword the higher the PPC you would pay.

However, there are also other factors that should be taken into account, like how relevant your website to your keyword, among other factors.

Solo Advertising

One great and contemporary way to get traffic is by advertising on mailing lists of other mailing list owners. A good thing about solo ads is that they’re not expensive, plus they allow you to target very big number of people very fast and very cheaply.

The best thing to do here is to look out for list owners who have big lists in order to advertise your affiliate link or bring traffic to your blog.

You should always expect high response if you’re advertising your list in a reputable email list. Always reputable list owners give you access to high responsive highly relevant mailing list that trust him much.

Micro Blogging

One of the fastest ways and many people love to do it. Micro blogging is the short form of blogging.

Building followers and sending them short messages to engage them is the essence of micro blogging. You can use micro blogging in affiliate marketing as a way to drive traffic to your blog or landing page that includes your affiliate link.

Image sharing websites

With Snapshot and Instagram websites explode with active users by millions on annual basis, targeting these websites is also a brilliant idea to generate more traffic to your blog or affiliate product you promote.

Google+

Google+ network is a social media network that connects you to your audience, however, as any other advertising campaign, you have to do your own research first and check whether or not this network is appropriate for you.

The advertising method that’s available in Google+ is called +Post Ads. Google+ has about 540+ million monthly active users.

With +Post Ads, you reach your target audience by advertising your valuable content in relevant websites—in Google Display Network.

Before Google+ allows you to create a +Post Ad, you have to fulfill some criteria. After such easy requirements, you can easily start your ad campaign.

Forums

The entry point of many affiliates is to start marketing their affiliate link on forums. All they need is to create content a.k.a. threads, or give useful response and attach their affiliate link to the signature so others can click through.

There are some useful things to see on forums before subscribing to.

#1 – Make sure that you are joining the most reputable forum in your niche. Sometimes just one or two forums are enough to get involved to.

#2 – big and reputable forums are always active and have many loyal users that participate on regular basis.

#3 – Make sure that you can add real value to the community. Spamming and such practices are not allowed

#4 – As a rule of thumb don’t start posting or creating new threads before carefully reading the rules and policy and get acquainted to them.

You should take it seriously. If you managed to build a good reputation in the forum you’re joining then, then it would pay off in the end as people start to get to know you better over time.

Blog Commenting

Blog commenting is another way to relate to your audience in highly effective and most cost efficient manner.

If you’re adding value with your comment, many bloggers give you a chance to add a link to your website under your name.

Actually there are more ways you can promote your affiliate link. It’s limited by your imagination. Whether you promote affiliate products by blog commenting, SEO, or Twitter and Facebook sponsored ads, etc.

Conclusion

Advertising and traffic generation methods are discussed deeply in many affiliate marketing training courses (for example here).

You always have to mix various strategies until you start seeing a flow of traffic that converts well with your affiliate offers. And never depend on just one advertising method or source of traffic.

Marketing online
   On this page I put all together the things you need for advertising your business on internet. Mainly you can use these sites for free. But it takes your time, so if you prefer you can pay for some services and save a lot of work and time. You have to make your choice which one to use, or even you can use all them, but have to make a plan and schedule how much time to spend on this.
   I think these are the sites every one marketing online must join. Below I list them without priorities.

   1. You have to set up account on main social networks. Even if you don’t like socializing, have
to be sign up at least for Facebook and Twitter. This is the best possible free advertisements.
If you are serious about making money online, and have more time you have to join more. Here I added these which I am member of and already mentioned in my previous articles. Members of these networks are people with business interest
and you could share and learn a lot. First give you many free ways to advertise your business, last one you can only post some free ads.
– Apsense.com
-Adlandpro.com
– myNetworkingPro.com

   2. Traffic exchange sites. You can advertise your site or referral links for free. If you don’t have time, you can pay for credits to spend on these sites. Best one are with 1/1 exchange. And with geographical targeting.
– Easyhits4u.com
– Trafficswarm.com

For more you can check my list with Best traffic exchange sites.

   3. If you want to have more referrals in programs you are running, there are sites that are made
especially for this. I already wrote article about how to get more referrals, you can read more from this link: How to get more referrals. Here I just write a list of these sites.
– Downlinerrefs.com

– Programrefs.com

– Getref.com

– Simplerefs.com

– Targetrefs.com

   4. For bringing more traffic to your site or blog, and for improving your rang in search engines I recommend these sites. They are really SEO friendly.
– Linkreferral.com I already wrote about benefits of joining this site. So I will just mention shortly – fast indexing from Google, permanent traffic, have your site reviewed.
– Trafficadbar.com Hi quality traffic.
Site founder is Darren Merrett – founder of Tabzi.com.

   5. Email marketing. You receive mails and every mail you open gives you some credits. You can use this credits for sending emails to members of this site. One thing you have to do for sure – open Gmail account
only for this purpose. You will receive lots of mails. If you don’t have time, you can buy credits for sending emails. I am member of these 3 sites. In my opinion they are the best one to use. You can find much more if you wish, but it takes a lot of time opening hundreds of mails.
-Freesafelistmailer.com

– Adchiever.com

– Buildmydownlines.com

   6. Text ads marketing. There are many sites you can use text add to promote your business.
Even in these 3 above you can post text adds ,but there are best for sending mails. Here are sites I use mainly for text adds:
– Ads2infinity.com
-MarketingExtreme.com
– Marketers-list.com
   You can’t use all sites at one time. Everyone have to make decision how much time to spend and
which one to use to promote his business online. I am checking all the time different sites and when I find some working better will add new information on this page.

Rules for success

Rules for success
   There are many articles about rules for success in live, in business and online marketing. Recently I am reading a lot about this. So I decided to write about the rules, because everyone has heard and thinks he knows about this, but rarely applied in real life. It is useful to read again from time to time and practice.

I do not claim to authorship, I collected everything from different authors, in a way that I like.

   1. Be positive. Believe in your own abilities.

    2. Follow Your Heart. As the idea goes having passion for your work means you will never work a day in your life! If possible always take a direction in which you have a personal interest! Developing a profitable business will take time and plenty of effort, but if you have a passionate interest in what you do it will be like child’s play to you!

    3. Organize. Routine almost always brings results therefore you will increase your chances of finding the financial independence you seek by getting organized! Do not expect to get much accomplished if you are always searching for files or trying to figure out what to do next! You must have a plan which will better coordinate your efforts making you more efficient and productive. Remember I forgot is not an excuse.

   4. Stay focused and do not wander from your core business intent or you will never complete anything! One of the most common obstacles you can expect to encounter when working an internet based business are all the distractions this environment offers. It is way too easy to get ‘lost’ aimlessly surfing about or to be tempted by every damn ‘opportunity’ you come across, of which there will be many! Maintain your focus and stay the course since this is the ONLY way you can expect to see the results you are seeking!

   5. Never give up. Almost nothing happens in the first attempt. Just because it seems that what you do does not work does not mean that it does not work. This simply means that it is not the right way to do it. The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.

    6. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Lighten up. Often, at least half of what we accomplish is due to luck. None of us are in control as much as we like to think we are.
