Affiliate marketing is not just about review websites monetized with Jvzoo promo launch, Clickbank or Amazon, but solid strategy to use when you need to capitalize on an emerging opportunity quickly. Two methods I want to highlight here.
The first method is the solo ad affiliate route. A marketer buys traffic from an email list and broadcast to it. The list allows the advertiser to send an email swipe(email copy) which will in turn be broadcasted to the owner's list to generate traffic for the advertiser.
The key is to find a list that is related to the opportunity being targeted. For example, advertise a health product in a list focusing on a health niche.
The advantage with this method is that the market is warm and the owner is already known and trusted by the consumers.
The swipe contains a link that leads to an optin page or a sale page when clicked. You can bridge directly to an optin page. There are no legal pages to adhere to as opposed to advertising through a search engine.
Once the sales funnel is triggered, the consumer will the go through an optin page with a lead magnet on it (either a tripwire under $10 or free giveaway such as a pdf or video course) that leads to a thank you page.
The thank you page real estate is then used to pitch the product the advertiser is going after.
The advertiser will also have the advantage of further pitching the product within the welcome message inside the autoresponder data base.
The big advantage of this quick affiliate marketing strategy is that the advertiser will have created a data bank for regular newsletter broadcasts that will lead to backend sales.
However, if the idea was just to make the consumer aware of an emerging opportunity such as a launch, then the job will be done with just one or two autoresponders. But as an entrepreneur, don’t just stop there.
The second method of affiliate marketing quick market launch is bidding on common terms using a search engine adwords to generate traffic.
You can bid on urls and related keywords to promote your offer to a target audience.
The first step is to search market places such as Clickbank, Sharesale, Amazon, and so on for urls and keywords. Do a Google keyword search to gauge the exact volume searches of this terms you want to bid on.
Then set up an ad set on search engines, such as a Bing; using this terms on your ad headline and body.
For example, let’s say you want to promote the relaunching of Inbox Blueprint 2.0, you will then search Clickbank for internet marketing related keywords and urls that you can use as bid terms on your ad set and redirect to Inbox Blueprint on your review site.
The second step will be to build a review site (ensure that you use keywords that people use when researching an opportunity e.g. insider review, scam, main keyword, comp plan) using content based on the terms from the market place; and redirect the traffic to you offer.
That is, have articles on your review site that talks about, for example, an internet marketing course on Clickbank and then word your article in such a way that it can redirect to Inbox Blueprint.
Your review site doesn’t have to have bonuses but if you can include them, do. Another review site strategy is to do an in-depth review of the offer you are promoting coupled with related bonuses.
When you redirect your traffic to your offer ensure that you have an optin page where you offer a free offer or an offer under $10 to secure the prospects details. You will then use you thank you and welcome message inside your autoresponder to pitch to your prospect.
Some things to be careful of when using this affiliate marketing method. As mentioned, don’t send them straight from your ad set to a capture page or sales page, it doesn’t convert as well as sending them to a review page.
In fact, Google hate squeeze pages (it thinks you are just advertising to harvest emails) but it welcomes review pages.
Additionally, include video as content for the review site and tag it with the market place keyword, if you have it available. Include keyword optimized images as well.
Don’t bid directly on copy protected trade names such as apple, for obvious reasons. Collect as many keywords or urls related to your niche and just continue to scale the ad, ensure that you choose keywords with only up to 3 advertisers on organic search listings(less advertiser means low cost per click).
Affiliate marketing method 2 may not be as fast as method 1, but what-ever method you choose, ensure that you create a list you can broadcast to in order to realize backend sales.
