April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 141


Now if you like me have tried affiliate marketing or are currently trying but not getting anywhere fast and the dream of working from your laptop on a beach seems impossible I'm here to say it isn't!

Ok let's shed some light on the topic and point you in the right direction. You see affiliate marketing is simply a case of directing someone who is looking for a product or service to that exact product or service or a better one. Now in essence this sounds very easy but in actual fact if not done properly it can seem impossible, the art of good affiliate marketing lies in 3 words quality, capture and conversion.

First things first you need to qualify your leads coming to you site, there is no point in having 1000 visitors a day to your site affiliating make money online products and the visitors want gardening products or lose weight now products those visitors are all wasted! It is vital that thorough keyword research is done to make sure you are targeting the right keywords and those keywords have good traffic levels each month, this way you are qualifying each visitor to your site.

When I began affiliate marketing all I used to do is direct visitors directly to the vendor's sales page via my affiliate link, if you do this without sending them to a squeeze page to capture at least their name and email you are missing out on building an email list which in this business is vital!

Now conversion this will either make you an online success or just another person that make $20 a month online. Making sure your squeeze page converts highly is essential and using even simple tools like Google analytics split test software is essential and here's why. If you are sending 100 people per day to your site and are getting a 3% conversion rate that means 3 in every 100 people will enter their details and go onto the site you are affiliating for. Which breaks down to 3 conversions a day times 30 equals 90 name and email address a month plus the affiliate commission you make on each of them. Now if we up this conversion by just 1% we now have, 4 x 30 = 120. That's an extra 30 people entering your business earning you commission and 30 more people you have to market to again and again and again.

When we add all these elements together and we have a highly qualified visitor going to a squeeze page and capturing their details which highly converts and makes them want to buy or affiliate product, then and only then does that dream of being on the beach with your laptop become achievable forget these vital elements and you might as well forget the internet lifestyle dream!
