How to make money with online affiliate marketing.
Affiliate marketing is best described as being a broker of information. In our case we are building a community around information we are expert or semi expert in. This is called niche community building. We do it this connecting with like minded people who share your interest, offering them something new to read. You don’t have to be an expert. We just have to use the research skills you used to write book reports in school. Get facts to weave into a personal story about that part of your niche.
Example: Article Topic / Model Airplanes – Finding the right Glue. Product: Acme Glue 750 Storyline: The time I used the wrong glue and how I found Acme Glue 750.
In this example we show a basic mind map for a great article. You can easily find 2-3 suppliers to offer a great model cement or glue for comparison and potential ordering. Done right the reader will understand that you have tried other glues and prefer the one you recommend. They will understand why you prefer it from your own experience.. This type article catches people at the research phase. That is when they are trying to decide which glue is right for the job they are doing. It then walks them through the process of decision, and leads them to a choice of suppliers to buy now.
Working in this manner establishes you as an expert in model building. This will help you recommend and review other products in the future. I will advise you to also have other articles of interest that offer nothing for sale. This way your blog doesn’t look like sales pitch after sales pitch. A following will be formed. Thus links will be created as other bloggers site your articles as research for post of their own.
How to make money online affiliate marketing / finding affiliate programs.
In addition to common programs like Clickbank, JV Zoo, Share-A-Sale, Commission Junction, and Linkshare which represent hundreds or even thousands of merchants and information sellers you can also find thousands of independent affiliate programs offered directly by the seller.
To find these often higher paying offers by direct sellers you can type the product name and affiliate program as an exact phrase like, “Acme Glue 750 Affiliate Program” in Google Advanced Search. You can also find affiliate programs for retailers or specialty retailers by changing your search to something like “Model Airplane Supplies affiliate program” and you can get a good list of places to shop in your niche.
Keep a spreadsheet of your affiliate programs, login details, affiliate ID number and if possible the name of product you are promoting from them. Often it is easy to forget where you go to check your stats. Especially if you don’t have such a data sheet and work numerous suppliers.
Online Affiliate Programs Make Easy Money Scaling Up
While it is possible to use a single product and make money online affiliate marketing. It is often best and typically so to have a range of related products making you money. A single niche can be lucrative but imagine that you like airplane modeling and playing golf. Why not write about both passions and the products related to them? I never advise writing about things you are not interested. This is because it makes your business a JOB instead of something you look forward to working on. Be passionate and write about the things you LOVE.
