“Affiliate marketing – is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or companies’) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others, and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.”It seems incredible, right?” You can just mention a few products and provide affiliate links. Next, you simply use your current inbound tactics to drive more visitors and sales.
Sounds simple and easy doesn’t it? But the truth is that it’s not easy. Let me explain by introducing you to a 3 step formula I call: A 3 Step Method in affiliate marketing.
How To Use A 3 Step Method Providing Free Information To Turn Digital Information Products And Services Into Revenue
Learn a 3 step process that will allow you to start a profitable digital marketing business, and gain new customer sales consistently.
Step One: Learn how to identify a need in the market for specific types of affiliate marketing information that people like to learn about.
Step Two: Find or create an information product that teaches that specific type of information people want to learn about that we identified in step one.
Step Three: Create a page that you show to that target market we identified in step one, so you can introduce them to the world of affiliate marketing information they already have shown an interest in learning about and potentially buying.
Providing Educations: My Online Startup (MOS)
Providing someone with as much information for free as you possibly can I find will also help with becoming knowledgeable in the field of the affiliate marketing. Given the aspects of the field affiliate marketing, one could say that it is not actually a way to make money. But I find that not to be true given the negativity will produce with it but I choose to look at all the positive aspects. I think providing a free course such as my online startup affiliate business (MOS) for sure is a guidance system that provides all kinds of positive information. You might say it involves creativity as well as wanting to learn more.
Signing up with a FREE course isn’t such a bad way to go. Especially if you are someone like me that is on a strict tight budget. Plus giving away FREE information (valuable content) will provide for a more lucrative trade in the long run I think. Because there’s nothing like good old-fashioned word of mouth advertising or in this case internet gossiping through social media. Like Chuck says in his lessons he says that one product is going to create the Baseline for your entire operation.
Pick your one product
1. The importance of your one offer
– While you’ll be promoting a lot of different products as an affiliate marketer, there’s still that ONE product you will lead out with
– Picking this ONE product is very important because:
o This product will represent your brand: you will treat it as if it’s your own and you should 100% stand behind it and believe in it
o This product will determine your income: if it has high conversions, you’re sweet. If it has low conversions, your income will suffer
o This product will be responsible for attracting most of your customers: it’s the product you will lead out with and that people will know you for. If they like it, they’ll buy from you
– Imagine if you lead out with a junk product, your subscribers will just unsubscribe and think you’re a scammer. Even though the next few products might be high quality, it’s too late because your first impression matters
2. Criteria when picking your one offer
– It must solve a major problem in the market (evergreen: will be there years from now)
– High conversions (doesn’t matter if the product is good or not, if the sales page doesn’t convert, it’s also no good)
– Must have additional upgrades (this increases your Return On Investment)
– Evergreen, Updated (up to date)
– Reliable Commissions
– You want to stand 100% behind the product so that you can promote it with pride (this one product will be responsible for 80% of your entire income online)
How To Promote Your Business
Promoting your business is critical to its success, but the number of ways you can do so can seem dizzying. You can promote your business through an email newsletter, paid ads in local magazines, word-of-mouth referrals—any activity that gets information about your brand, product, or service to any group of people.
In addition to setting up a game plan, you may be wondering how you’ll ever get it all done (and you can follow how to get this accomplished by clicking on my “What is A Wealthy Affiliate?” review. Even if you don’t know much about marketing and promotions, there are resources out there that can help you make that happen—including a global network of freelancers that specialize in exactly the type of work you’re looking for. More on this piece of the puzzle later!
I know for me, Online Affiliate Internet Marketing started out as a way to get rich quick. But not anymore! I’ve figured out, it’s definitely a way to create a sustainable online income with creating valuable content online by teaching me “How to Create A Website Online From A To…”
And I can’t even begin to tell you just how valuable this information is.
To Sum It Up
Is affiliate marketing really profitable?
Yes, affiliate marketing can be quite profitable, but it has to be done the right way. Depending on the value of the content given along with the idea behind it is that you promote other people’s products (FREE information), often through an affiliate network, earning a commission if people actually end up buying, thanks to your marketing.
