The reason why you say affiliate marketing is not easy

Why it is not easy to do affiliate marketing

The reason why you say affiliate marketing is difficult is because of the high level of competition in it. This is truly a common factor that brings down most affiliate marketers. Imagine a group of marketers battling to promote the same product to the same audience at the same time. Many times, it is a battle of uncertainty but you never knew.

Many people talk about it around this statement ‘affiliate marketing is not easy’ but affiliate marketing is ideal, affiliate marketing is rich, it is diverse and can be a very joyous hobby as well but how diverse is it?

I know there is a group of affiliates out there who see it as a hardcore even though they are already in it. I know what it feels like when someone spends 20 hours a day, 140 hours a week, and the worst of it all, a tone of hours in 90 days of every month trying to promote but don’t see any commission in the end. Trust me you can easily withdraw from this of business if you don’t know how to walk it.

Although there some lucky people who get to earn money within the first month of marketing, they may have used some easy technique in order to get the product sold. In other words, they are just lucky but again, I could say;- they must have been popular on a particular social network so, once they have something to share with friends, they are always wanting to check it out.

Being an affiliate marketer is not very easy though. If you don’t have the passion for it, just like a professional job, once you don’t like it, you are most likely to begin to think of moving or finding the next one.

Why are you being defeated by your competitors

There are so many reasons why your affiliate marketing business is not generating more commissions as other affiliate marketers earn but do you know your niche? Knowing your niche helps a lot in scaling the right and correct content for the product that you are promoting.

Choosing a niche is where most marketers get confused. They come across many affiliate programs &products and will want to promote everything they find no! Don’t do that. You have to find a single program/product or service and promote that specific one as a beginner affiliate. You don’t need to rush into marketing many products like a pro because if you do, you won’t be able to focus at the time, become confused.

Not only that but also, you need to be self-driven. If I have the motivation and belief that yeah, I must make $5- $20 today or $100 this week. I will definitely make it as I dream it to happen.

You don’t need to wait to be told that hey! wake up it’s already time to work. You want to link up with other bloggers, write a post or an article, promote a product to make a sale, or create a video post to your social network to engage your targeted audience.

You need to be competent in your field of marketing, network with other affiliate marketers, share ideas, and be willing to learn from the experts. I am that one person who loves to learn and pass the knowledge to another but here, I write from experience based on what has worked for me as an affiliate marketer in the past.

When I started doing affiliate marketing, two years ago, I had no idea what to do. I knew that it’s all about sharing my affiliate links and that’s all. Little did I know, that sharing a link was just a starting point of marketing a product/service how wrong was I!🤔

Sharing your affiliate link is a starting point indeed perhaps, the first thing to do always after obtaining your affiliate link is to share it in any possible way to your social networks. Social media is the simplest platform I could reach to share my affiliate links. At the time of obtaining a link from your network, you notice that before you leave that affiliate marketing programs’ website, you already have social media sharing buttons right on the screen to enable you to share to social media with a click of a button.

When I made my first commission, $18 dollars was enough to buy me a meal and what a joyful day it was! If I can remember very well, it was 24th-september-2017 and I had just promoted a service one of which helped me to move from beginner to intermediate.

Once you come to the affiliate marketing business for the first time, you will probably want to determine where to deliver your first product link and expect someone to click on it, buys the product so you can get paid. That is how it should happen but is it as simple as these words speak?

It might be a tedious job when you are just getting started because, sometimes, I assume that for someone who doesn’t have a competence in learning how to make a commission from that product, it looks as though they are just gaming.

Huh! Now, that should not in anyway discourage you. I mean I am neither claiming to be a super affiliate nor a pro. I am just a writer who earns by writing what helps an affiliate marketer to earn a commission like me.

Even though I don’t earn much from affiliate marketing, at least it is a proven way for thousands of affiliate gurus out there and I have also proven it. Generally, affiliate marketing requires practical innovative techniques. Every affiliate marketer has a unique way of doing it and that’s what determines how much they make from it.

For the very first time of earning through a commission, you notice that you want to apply the same technique that you had used before in order to target another/next commission but at times, that also fails to yield what you aimed at. Never give up. You have to work hard for it.

Expert affiliate marketers who have truly spent years in the game say that you can promote a product/link up to seven times before a customer finally makes a decision to but it. They need that particular product but there is only one problem. They are not paying attention to you may be because your marketing email is not strong enough to call to action.

After seven days’ time, you should make a follow-up. Run another email campaign to remind them that they should really try your product or service. You must not stop reminding them because, every day, people want up to different needs, and who knows, your product could be the one they want next.

I don’t often run email campaigns but they are a very productive aspect of marketing. And you can only do this when you have an email list. Very important to have. If you want to read more about email marketing, I wrote on this on and for more help on how to get an email list for free, tap on this link.

What to put in to practice for a successful affiliate marketing business

  • Find the right affiliate program.

The first step to affiliate marketing is getting the right affiliate program. This is very crucial as it determines the ability to use it. What should the right affiliate network/ program be? It must be that which offers good marketing tools and gives support to its affiliate marketers. The commission value may also determine a good network. If the commission rates ate low, it might not rock your world.

  • Research more on your niche.

The second step after finding an affiliate network is to get to know your niche product. In this step, you will research on your chosen product to find out about your competitors, strategic keywords for that product, and appropriate marketing tools for work.

  • Get to know your competitors.

You must know who your competitors are. In this case, you want to find a solution to the problem of not being able to sell because you are being pressed down. When you want to deal with the enemy, you should probably know their weakness before you do so. In the same way, you should know who is with you in the same niche and see how to challenge them.

  • Decide the simplest way to market products.

Everybody has got a personal choice when it comes to selecting a marketing technique. Hopefully, the most successful one is what I would take. All marketing methods lead to good commissions but it’s only your potential to prove this right. One marketer can decide to go via social media, another through blogging and one other via email. I am sure that you can use all these methods but you have a choice to take.

  • Never give up.

And finally, you’ve got to work hard and never give up. Every planned investment you make will surely yield good results in the future.

Okay! So, now that we are ok with our marketing strategies. I believe you have picked something little from those few points though they were very obvious points to note. I had to consider them too because I am very sure that not everybody who reads this article has ever read about that before.

How you can build a free email list from Google mail

What is an email list and how can I build it?

In the world of marketing, there is always one aspect that every marketer has to put in mind while they market for services or products. One could probably think that to market is the same as to sell but it is not. The game is very clear if I market for a product and I don’t manage to convince somebody to buy it, it will not get sold. It is very obvious. The reason why people market their products is that they want to give it a broader exposure, get it sold so fast and make more sales but they can not do it effectively without an email list.

People search for different content types depending on what they want to learn or get done online. If they pick the interest in what a website offers, they will want to kind of make it easy to remember that site or service in particular. They can do that by either downloading a mobile app for that website or subscribing to it.

Websites often have their home page set as a static page such that, every visitor who comes to the website through its Url, will automatically land into that page. This is the page normally used to build up an email list.

An email list

This is ideally a group of contacts in your mail account. These contacts can be of people who have subscribed to your services like a newsletter, electronic course, or any free offer like an eBook but email contacts can also be generated or imported from external sources.

Building an email list

Email list building requires a lot of manipulative and convincing ideas. So many people take so long to attain a mear list of 500 contacts. Honestly, maybe they follow a very right path to getting their list built naturally but do you know what will kill their ambition? Patience, patience. I can relate this statement with this paragraph below

If everybody was to be tested and given God’s authority to see how they can resonate and judge like God, I bet 95% of the people worldwide would not be patient with sinners.😜 The degree of the patience that you have can determine your future success…..those who are patient will always have time to think and plan about their future.

Usually, when building a list of followers, you have to be patient enough to yield the final results. It can take you a year or years to have one list of 1000 contacts and if you are a digital marketer, 1000 email contacts are not enough.

For you to build an email list naturally, you must use landing pages. A landing page can enable you to have anyone visiting your website, to signup for either a free offer, a service, or as a customer who wants to purchase a product from your local store sales page.

Now, as I earlier mentioned, getting a list of contacts who are ready to have you deliver messages right to their inboxes is a hard long term project. And you can not force people to subscribe to your list if they do not show any interest in it. This allows you to filter the right audience list you ever need.

Allow people to voluntarily give you their email addresses and telephone numbers if need be, as they sign up on your landing page. All in all, having a landing page may need you to invest a few bucks. You will need a domain name for it and also pay for extra services to be able to get all tools to tools.

I know that not everybody would want to pay a penny or much to have landing pages especially me and those without a website. I would prefer to build my email list feely and faster without paying any money. This is very possible and I know you must be wondering how?, Watch the space below.


Using G-mail to get email contacts for free

Google mail is the most popular email service and is widely used worldwide. Notmally, when you send a text message through your G-mail address to another, the recipient’s address is automatically saved as part of your list within Google mail. And every time you want to send a message to that person, in the recipient’s tab, you want to add only the first letter of their address and it will suggest it so you can choose.

Google mail will do this with every new email address that you send to or receive a message from. Under normalz circumstances, you can hardly build your list to average 10,000 contacts unless you have something that people might be interested in.

Now, if you are a G-mail user, I am very sure that you know that it allows you to import contacts from external sources like your own telephone and Google. In the same way, if I want to have tones of email addresses on my list, I can do it in less than ten minutes.

You can import thousands of external contacts into your email account, text with them, and video chat in real-time as a group. Have you ever heard that your personal information can possibly be sold out to anybody anywhere in the world? The answer is ‘yes’.

Nobody would want their information to be sold out to another company but some websites still do that. When you sign up on a particular insecure website, the system will store all the details you give them about your self. This helps system administrators to generate your email address plus your telephone contact. The database can be sold as a whole to another company.

Obviously, when your personal info is sold, it means that you are liable to receive email messages from anybody who gets to know your address. It may not be harmful but it gets you worrying. I mean you will be surprised yo receive an email from a strange address.

Do you still have this question “how?” Wait, I am not trying to confuse you but here is the thing let me explain. If you are an internet, digital or online marketer, you definitely need this email list, and here is how to get it. When another business website purchases people’s personal data, they either resell it after use or give out the lists for free. Here is where you get the opportunity to acquire an email list freely.

With G-mail, you can just import these contacts and add them to your list. Raidforums is a website that shares databases from other websites and when you sign up, you can get a list of your choice to import to your Gmail contacts.

Of course, the lists to be imported should be of your niche. It will look awkward for you to import a list of people who had signed up for a yoga training newsletter for a different niche say, affiliate marketing courses. That will never work for you because it is not the right audience to send email messages.

Conclusion

Finally, as I conclude, list building is not something you can do only once. You will always have to do it for as long as your business lives. The reason why you should do so is you can not tell if all the contacts in your list are active unless they reply back to your messages.

Always aim at expanding your list to as big as it could be. That way, you will be able to replace your lost contacts that may have been deactivated or that have simply blacklisted you from their trusted list.

Also, remember to follow the rules of email marketing so that you will not be considered as a non-Pro. Now, hands-on job. Here is another article on email marketing techniques that you can use as well.

A nice email marketing to you my friend.

How to be a good online marketer without spamming people’s email inboxes.

There is a difference between being Poor and being Broke, Broke is temporary, Poor is Eternal” – Robert Kiyosaki 

Success in business isn’t about what you do, it’s about who you are and how you think… and bad habits die hard.

Changing how you think can be one of the most challenging things to do but it’s undoubtedly the most important. 

One of the biggest lessons I learned when building a network marketing company several years ago was this: “Don’t spend your time with the people that need it, spend your time with the people that deserve it”…

Many of us have a desire to help the people who we think need help the most but the reality is that we can’t help everyone. In fact, we can’t help anyone who isn’t ready to help themselves, and trying to do so isn’t just a waste of our time but it takes time away from the people who deserve it (the people who we can actually help).

If you have ever spent hours of your time to help someone just to have them quit… or worse, do nothing (at least you know where the quitter stands) then you know what I’m talking about. I’m not saying these are bad people, but as Entrepreneurs, they are just not mentally ready to take the next step (and trying to convince them otherwise is a waste of time).

This also applies to the Entrepreneur who wants help from everyone but never invests in their own business. 

Or the person who wants to learn how to sell but replies to emails with “stop selling me stuff” instead of just clicking the little “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of every email that is sent. As an avid email marketer, I get a kick out of these emails every time…

And the list goes on…

My point here is this: Respect your time, avoid these groups, and be very selective on how and who you chose to spend your time with. 

And while we’re on the subject of respecting your time…

Audience-Toolkit-University

Looking to dominate social media?

Let’s get to some knowledge base on how to generate social media traffic. It’s never been that easy but now, this has made it easier.

Howdy, reader!

Have you ever driven traffic using this powerful tool? The Audience Toolkit is one of my best traffic working tools 🔩 🔧 🔨.

Every single day, I engage my readers and followers on social media-Facebook and they get to smash the like👍 or the unlike👎 buttons on every post I make.

Engage your Facebook audience.

I also get them to comment on my content it could be a picture, text, podcast, a video tutorial, or any other related content. This is how I keep them engaged by publishing different types of content.

And here is where I get to know and understand what my viewers and readers want. One aspect I always consider is getting down to the comments section of each video because viewers can immediately reach out to you by commenting on your video if they do not have any other way to contact you.

I can not tell which part of the world my traffic does come from? All I know is; The Audience Toolkit does its best as everyone else talks about it. Try it for free

If you are looking to target traffic from Facebook, you are not so far away from what you want. I can engage my audience yes I agree but I will also agree to it that with the Audience toolkit, I am able to reach more people not only my followers.

The audience toolkit is commonly known as ‘Simple Social Tools’ this is a name for specific software that is designed to automatically generate social media traffic and increase post engagement.

Five months ago, I purchased access to this software because I wanted to exceed my Facebook friend limit. It surprised me when I woke up to my phone the next morning to see that had over +2000 friends from the initial 2500. It was a crazy moment.

Last year, I used to have a weird manner of bringing viewers to my channel because,

knew it was the right time to target people to view my content.

I chose one of the greatest Youtuber’s channels whom I knew -Brandon Tay, selected one of his videos and decided to target the people who had watched that particular video. In this sense, I knew that I would get some of his traffic without having to compete.

Now, that was just a simple hack I used on YouTube. I later realized that Simple Social tools(Audience toolkit) also has the same only that this one is more advanced with automation. I came to know that it never was a weird manner. I was right to do it that way.

That’s why I introduce to you the Audience Toolkit University

Audience Toolkit University video turtorial.

The Audience Toolkit Univesity is a learning place for users of the software- Simple Social Tools. In case you find any challenge using it,

With this program, you can learn even more ideas on how to use Simple Social Tools to reach even more people. I strongly recommend it.

How I get to promote on social media.

I am kinder buzzy one of these days but at least I spare time to get to write an idea here. So, however much I become so committed, I can never forget to put up something.

If you have to ignoring social media, it is high time you started posting on your accounts. If you haven’t joined any, do so because, you need to connect to your audiences and make your content discoverable.

Now, I am pretty much convinced and you too should be. That in order to generate an income passively online, you need to see these three aspects. The key factors which every online business must observe to leverage the opportunity of having a continuous income flow.

  1. A website
  2. Content
  3. Traffic

These three aspects seriously matter and you can never avoid them. The only option you will have Is to quit if you can not manage these. You need traffic and it can not come without content and also, content can not be without a website huh!

Look! If you are doing affiliate marketing/ making money from home with affiliate marketing, you are one who needs this traffic very much because, for every sale, you will make, there must have been traffic somewhere because you will hardly earn a commission if your traffic level is low.

However, it does not come as much as you would want it. It takes a couple of activities to be done to set up traffic sources especially those which are external. External sources like Facebook, Twiter, YouTube, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram can boost website traffic externally.

All the above sources are social media sites and who does not use social media? It sounds like a toolbox for traffic generation and this is not far from what is real.

When you make the best use of social media sites, building automatically targeted traffic will not be a problem.

Using social media to drive traffic to a website.

You have to produce high-quality content on your website, build both internal and external links to your website to drive outside traffic.

To do this, you will always ensure to proofread and dig back to your old content. Make sure there are no writing typos in your work. Work that is free of typing errors is ideally what ranks on Google so easily with appropriate key phrases.

Affiliate marketing tips from best affiliates.

Hey, Marketer! Still, stranded with your affiliate niche? Here are some extra tips to consider.

25 Affiliate Best Practices

1.    Always be selective when choosing products to promote. Products need to be relevant to your audience and high quality. The business needs to be honest and trustworthy. Remember, this is your reputation on the line.

2.    When promoting products, don’t focus on the price of the product but the benefits buyers will receive. If there is a unique offer or discount price, that’s a bonus.

3.    Ask your audience for feedback. Ask what they are struggling with. Ask how they like what you are emailing and writing about. Ask if they purchased a product through your recommendation, how they are linking it or what results they are seeing. Showing you care helps build strong bonds with your audience.

4.    When promoting affiliate links, ensure your posts or emails offer plenty of value. It should be able to stand alone, whether or not you include a promotion.

5.    Don’t promote without a plan. Start with the goal of your campaign, then search for right product to promote. Randomly promoting products can lead to low commissions and worse, broken trust with your audience.

6.    Don’t sell or include affiliate links in every email you send. Subscribers get tired of being bombarded with offer after offer. Send some messages that just talk about what you’re doing or offer a tip or two without any type of promotion.

7.    Spend time building relationships with your subscribers. People who feel connected with you are more likely to trust your word and buy based on your recommendations.

8.    Look for programs that offer a good commission, 25% or better if possible for example, Jvzoo. Those offering low commissions may not generate enough commission for your effort.

9.    When searching for products or services to promote, see what the movers and shakers in your niche are promoting. Industry leaders often vet the companies they promote quite well before recommending them.

10. Track your opens, clicks and buy statistics to see which product sell well, which types of promotional material generate the most sales, which headlines get the most opens and so forth.

11. Look for businesses who offer affiliates pre-made content to help you promote their products. You can often find emails, images blog posts, list of benefits, sales angle suggestions and more from companies.

12. If products from a particular company is popular with your audience, but the company’s affiliate center is lacking, contact them to see if they could provide you with some pre-written material.

13. Ask your audience what their favorite companies, products or types of products are. Ask what they look for when buying products. This will give you an idea of which features you need to look for when searching for products to promote.

14. Make sure you reach the maximum number of people possible by ensuring your website and emails are optimized for mobile devices. If your audience cannot read your messages, they cannot buy.

15. Take time to learn about what makes great headlines, lead-ins and call-to-actions. Better headlines lead to more opens. Better lead-ins get people reading and better call-to-actions generate more sales.

16.  If you’re doing a big promotion, and including bonus items, create a custom landing page for the offer. On this page, include details of what people get not only from the product you are promoting, but your bonuses as well.

An example of a product offer that can be downloaded after someone signs up on you your list.

17. Make use of all types of content to promote the products. Some people prefer reading, others would rather watch a video, some may prefer to hear from you live. The more ways you reach out to your audience, the more sales you’ll make.

18. If you don’t already have one, choose a reputable email service. There’s nothing more frustrating than spending days creating a great email campaign only to have a big portion of your messages get blocked or filtered.

19. Make sure your website and lead magnets are up to par and offer excellent information. The bigger you grow your list, the more exposure you get for your recommendations.

20.  Segment your list so you can better match product offers to subscribers. The closer the match, the bigger the sales.

21. Test higher priced products with low-to-mid-range products to see, on average, how much your audience is willing to spend.

22. Don’t forget to promote complimentary products. For example, if you promote a training course on losing weight. The next week or so, you could promote a more specific product that compliments weight loss.

Weight loss is one product category that has got more and more traffic compared to all the others in the market. of

23. When promoting a special offer, mention any upsells available. This gives your audience a heads up that they will be presented with more than one offer. …but do so in an excited way.

24. Ask companies if you can use their product photos in your promotions for the product. They will usually allow it and may also let you pull a few points from their sales pages to use in your promotions.

25. Regularly check your affiliate links to make sure they are still working.

Choice of words

The choice of words used in your sentences matters somehow in a way that when simple words are used, you will improve readability on your website. You have to use simple but strong words.

Just like any other forms of writing, your blog content should be presented in short paragraphs. This will help search engines to easily identify keywords in each paragraph. The length of each paragraph is five to six sentences.

Passive voice

The passive voice has to be maintained to 10%. Try to use sentences which are less passive. This helps to make the written texts appear intonational thus improving. understanding.

Let’s talk about link building for SEO.

What No One Tells You About Broken Links- written by Debby Winter.

Quality links for SEO

Have you ever clicked a link just to find a broken page? Or maybe you were taken to a page that didn’t quiet provide the information you were looking for? If you are running a blog or website the quality of your links are key to quality per se, and links will also affect organic rankings in the search engines. It will be clear that both links and content are the most important part of SEO, and we want to take extra care of our links because when broken they have a damaging effect.

Links contain the essence of the internet and as such we should treat them with respect.

It is true that links are the very building blocks of the internet. You may not have quiet realized exactly how important a properly labelled link is until you meditate on the concept for some time. If links are labeled the wrong way they have zero value, or worse, they could even do damage. If you are someone who always tries to link the right way than you probably don’t have to worry, but if you know you have links on your site that have as only purpose to inflate the link juice of one page than you might be in trouble. You are probably aware that this is often done for SEO purposes but it can have awful effects.

Are there other linking factors that affect my ranking?

Yes there are. Search engines know that links are the essential connection on which the internet depends in order to be able to provide you with information. If you provide wrong labels, or in other words if you label your links with improper text, than you may be punished for that. At best the search engines will ignore the link text, but if you run a website that keeps adding irrelevant anchor text than it is likely that you will be dropped by the algorithm. When this happens it is likely easiest to start over from scratch and follow Google best practices for SEO.

Where to start if you are unsure about the quality of your links?

For years now I have been using a free software called Xenu Link Sleuth. It can be downloaded for free from the internet and it will serve to generate detailed error reports that will give you in-depth insight on the situation. The program is especially useful if you run online forums that contain user generated content, or if you allow people to post their link in the comment section of your blog. When time goes by some links may expire or become outdated, and this can as such damage your rankings. If you are not sure how to use the problem or how to fix the links you may wish to consult an SEO expert.

Should I include or remove punctuation at the end of a link?

If you are linking to a website URL you always want to remove the punctuation at the end because it may inadvertently be added which will cause an error. Instead of writing “wordpress.org?” you always want to add a pause and write “wordpress.org ?” Remember, to free a website from error is to optimize it for the search engines. Good spelling and good grammar is important, but when it comes to functionality and SEO you sometimes have to make an exemption.

If everything else fails…

Sometimes someone sends you a link and it just doesn’t work. If you can’t figure out how to fix it then your best chance is to Google the link. If there is a spelling error it is at this point that this will be revealed to you. Also, if you have someone write a guest article you always want to check all the links before posting. Make sure to Google part of it to see if it isn’t duplicate content since this is harmful for your site. Never submit the entire article to article checkers as there are some checkers out there that will copy your article and publish it before you can.

Well folks that’s all, I hope you enjoyed this article on broken links and that you learned something new about the inner mechanics of the internet and SEO. Take care and stay home, it’s nice to know that in uncertain times like this people are reaching out to each other here on WordPress. If you have any questions or if you like a free website audit feel free to contact me.

Warm Regards,

How to bring more visitors into your affiliate marketing website.

Hurray, reader!

Welcome to this post where I am going to explain a few tips for an affiliate marketer or any website owner to increase engagement on their webpages. So if you are looking to expand your business but can’t struggle for SEO, I can help.

Most people tend to choose alternative ways for obtaining views, leads, and engagement. I can either be through advertising or by using BOT services. This helps in some way but should you really spend much on these services? These are not very beneficial.

What you should do instead is, to focus on search engine optimisation(SEO) to build a permanent rank that will bring in more and more visitors every single minute of your life.. In the long run, you should be able to rank your pages even if they are freshly new.

For lead generation, the appearance of your pages, buttons and the content all together are responsible for your returning visitor and your onetime visitor. Beautiful images on your blog/website, please a visitor if they are appealing to them. This can be a genesis of visitor attraction on your site.

The algorithms for Google do not look at which site is not ranking in order to rank it but they simply look at keywords that people type into the search tab to find your content.

Also, consider building better quality pages that will easily rank on Google.

What should webpages on a website look like?

The layout and appearance of your affiliate website is the first thing to attract visitors to it. Depending on how you design it, be mindful of SEO performance with headers.

Headers; H1-H6 have to be laid out in their respective order on all your web pages. The H1 header is always the biggest and H6 is the smallest. I am making this emphasis to help you understand that headers help to improve page quality hence good ranking.

Affiliate SEO: The Importance of Website Authority

Affiliate Stories

One of the great things about being an affiliate is the ability to step away, and take time off from work, without it affecting much of your income.

~ become an affiliate

I have been involved in marketing since 2009, at one point in time I had built and managed over 30 websites ranging between 200 and 1,000 pages each. Of course I had used WordPress to manage my work-flow, had a small team of loyal writers and relied on friends and family for image editing and basic day-to-day operations. The word successful is relative, as we all have different meanings for the word success, but I was profitable. I had little trouble keeping up with bills, and the wants of my family as I put more time into my websites, it eventually became my full-time job. I did this for several years before burning out, and my websites took…

What it feels to do affiliate marketing in 12 minutes.

Every time I come around an idea related to marketing, I definitely think it is affiliate marketing. I wonder why this is, but I think because it is the number one online income source, it really clings around my mind.

At the beginning of the journey of affiliate marketing, one may look to it as something they will do temporally and maybe change to something else when they find it difficult on their side. They could probably take another alternative. It could be freelancing, copywriting, becoming a transcriptionist or a web developer. All the above are really good jobs to look up to but I should whisper a secret to you. Not all the jobs I have mentioned above or not all online jobs are best for every person.

We very well know that if I have a skill and experience in a certain area/field when I search for a job, it has to be that one which is co-related to the skill that I have and often, I am required to have some experience in the field, Here comes affiliate marketing, a job that is meant for anyone and here I am, doing it with much pleasure and pride. I can count on it even in times of hardship for I know, if I have not worked on it, I will not expect any money. One good thing about it is; it is open.

You do not need to have skills and experience about it besides, every affiliate network is really in need of you to join their affiliate program so you will help them raise sales and leads. It’s revenue comes by you sharing a customised affiliate link. Nothing is as easy as earning money by just placing a link in any social platform. Yes it all you can do.

How I feel about the affiliate business

I have a feeling of pleasure and that feeling derives my secret for you. Amidst all challenges, this has got to help many lazy affiliate marketers to earn within a shorter time than expected. I’m talking about the all in one affiliate marking software– which is well tested and proven to work best for your affiliate marketing business.

12 MINUTE AFFILIATE

You can earn up to $ 370 of commission using this optimized machine.

Like the name itself, you can really do it in 12 minutes. Find a product, build a landing page, create a bridge page, set an autoresponder in 12 minutes and run campaigns where you where expect results in 24 hours. It looks crazy but true.

Many have made money more than what is enough for them. They have started their own affiliate networks and are earning big money. All of them started from scratch and you know what I mean. They began just like you have started and stayed persistent to it all year, all decade long and that is their success.

The secret is; you need to be patient in this business. Do not give up yet since you haven’t earned any commission. Maybe how you do it is not the right way. Maybe the product you are promoting is not preferably to be bought by many. It could be a seasonal product you are promoting or maybe you do not have a right audience. Today, we all want the same thing-money and it makes us struggle so hard in order to access it. This struggle has been made an easy one. Earn commissions while you sleep.

You need to try 12 MINUTE AFFILIATE and give me feedback in case you get this same feeling.

The Best Paying Affiliate Programs

I have been an online casino affiliate since 2009 and would like to share with you what I have found to be the best, and most attractive affiliate programs in the industry.

Why online casinos?

Online casinos offer a unique gaming experience to players, and is one of the fastest growing entertainment industries online. From table games such as blackjack and roulette, online slots, live dealer games, poker, bingo and so much more, online gambling is projected to reach over $102 billion by 2025. Up from the current $59 billion in 2020, with much of this revenue from mobile players.

Residual income

Once you refer a player, that player is tagged to your affiliate account for the lifetime of that player. This means, every time the player returns to play, you will earn a percentage of the casino’s net profits generated from this player.

How to be successful at Jvzoo and make about $1000/ month


Are you a member of the Jvzoo affiliates? here is a basic guide to help you to be a successful affiliate marketer or businessman in 2020 at Jvzoo.com. It is from my own point of view, that I am writing this because I realise someone out there needs just this information to sort out a challenge they are currently facing with Jvzoo.

Now, whether you are a seller or an affiliate, This may help you in one way or the other to generate online income depending on how you intend to earn from the company. It is very obvious that Jvzoo is an online market platform which is constituted of sellers/vendors, buyers/customers and affiliates/ partners. These three play a big role in maintaining the existence of the online market as it’s beneficial to all. I want to discuss these three and definitely, show you how to succeed as one of the above-mentioned people.


For Affiliates/ partners of Jvzoo


Multilevel marketing is key 🔑 in the affiliate marketing business. If you are an affiliate marketer, there are factors you may have to consider in order to generate more conversions from your affiliate links. First, you have to find the best selling products of different time intervals say, best-sold products in the last two months, best-sold products in 2019 or the best-sold products in the previous week. When you have known them, seek permission from the vendor to promote the same products and obtain your links from the approved products page.

After obtaining affiliate links, the next thing that you will want to do is to paste them to your website and start expecting clicks or conversions which is very correct. But you know that these may not happen as soon as you put those links up in your site pages because they will have to be indexed by search engines first and then get ranked after some time. So, as you wait for that to happen, you will have to see how to get clicks and eventually and experience conversions from those links.

• Attain basic education from Jvzoo’s extensive education service and get to know how to do everything confidently and effortlessly. Also, get your self an affiliate blueprint to be able to sell any product on the platform. This is exceptional but important in building trust and getting confidence before your site visitors for your e-commerce business.

• Consider creating a landing page so that all visitors to your website will be redirected to that page first before they can actually view other pages. Landing pages are micro websites that visitors go to when they click on a link from an email or an ad from any social media network.

Landing pages are built on the main focus – call to action (CTA), unlike websites which have a lot to be explored and have many have so many purposes. Now you know how perfectly a landing page would make your affiliate marketing business easier. This is an internet marketing idea that you can invent today. Create one using any landing page builder that you know for example mail chip – my best choice when it comes to that.

• Use Jvzoo’s affiliate tools. The first tool that you don’t want to miss is the Jvzoo extensive training to ensure your success before using these tools below.



All the tools above have different functions and you can access all of them in one place( Jvzoo tools page).


For sellers/vendors


The easiest way to make money online with JVzoo is by selling products. When you join and sign up for a Jvzoo account, you will have access to all its pages and services. You will discover that there is an option for you sell what you have and get payments right to your bank account preferably, a PayPal account and you can withdraw any amount available as long as it is more than the set thresh-hold.


How much you should have in the account to be eligible for a withdraw.(thresh-hold)

As a vendor, you are required to let Jvzoo know a little about your business through filling a form which is reviewed and approved before you can actually add a payment option(Jvzoo pay). This step is very simple and once you are done, anyone who buys your product will make a payment directly to your Jvzoo pay account. During withdrawal, for all products sold through affiliate links, 50% of the price of the product is paid to the affiliate, Jvzoo takes 10 % and the remaining 40% goes to the vendor. This way, you will have sold effortlessly without doing anything.

How about this fact that one can sell other people’s products? Yes, it is true. In fact, you can sell other’s products and market others as well. This is advantageous that you can be a vendor and an affiliate too at Jvzoo as long as you follow the right channel.

And for shoppers, Jvzoo is the best place to do your shopping. It has relatively cheap products at affordable prices compared to other online market places.

Affiliate marketing in 2020(Review)

What are the new happenings this year in the affiliate marketing business? For years, it has existed and is still continuing to be the number one and almost the simplest way to earn online relative to a 9-5 job or even beyond that. The lovable bit of it is that; for website owners, they have a previledge to benefit in many ways. They can earn from blogging and also earn from affiliate links in one place.

Affiliate marketing is something which is diverse. It’s a business of its own in fact, without it, most businesses would not be sounding now.

And it’s disappointing to announce that Niji affiliates recently closed it’s affiliate programe and it’s so sad for the Niji affiliates that it nolonger has that employment opportunity. Therefore, if you had been a Nijji affiliate, it’s high time you declined all your links to that website because they will surely do nothing in your site.”

As far as affiliate marketing is concerned, the day to day life has it’s own effect on this business. People buy products and services not because they are forced to but because they may have gotten attracted to a product by it’s appearence or they probably have an issue to fix which requires that particular product.  Generally, wants are what we normally buy. When these products are bought, they will be used and the consumer is able to give a review about that particular product. They can either tell the good, bad or both of the above, about the product or service they have used.

This is a good practice as it helps to bring out the truth about a particular product. So, if I want to buy it, I will first find reviews from people who’ve already used it before, then go ahead to purchase it. Google helps alot when it comes to searching for exactly what you want to know.

These days most affiliate programs require you who is their partner, to review their products after they have been sold through your link and short of that, no payment will be made to you. This is certainly insane. I mean it just makes one to loose hope. And this is one of the factors which you may have to consider when choosing a good affiliate program.

Should you consider promoting softwares or want to buy one, the highest commissioning products in the market now are ( Digital goods).There is only one good affiliate website that I know has the best affiliate program. You get 50% commissions on every successful conversion.

JVZOO is the best digital product seller with a better affiliate program. Go to Jvzoo now.

Jvzoopay is a system that allows recurring payment to be made for both affiliates and sellers.

Congratulations!

This was my ambition two months ago “to reach 100 follows on this blog” and finally, It has made it. This is why I thank everyone for progressing to this achievement it is you who as made it and I hope and pray for another great one. Thank you very much.

Now, a new goal is being set up.

Best regards to you my beloved friends.

Email marketing strategy

Does your affiliate website require any marketing technique? Surely it does. In fact, it deserves to carry out email marketing. You may want to use other marketing strategies avoiding email. You could be wrong. How can a marketing tool that has existed for decades be left out? Are you aware of the new internet marketing techniques that have taken peoples minds making them ignore email yet in actual sense they are not very effective?

Well, let me tell you a little about it. Email marketing is very popular and for that matter, it beats the SEO technique(search engines) by 15% and social media by 25% since it’s population is approximately 85% that’s already a huge difference to identify it as the number one ranked strategy. While SEO may not be a success for every website, email can be a successful budget though you might have to invest a little.

The reason why email beats SEO and social media is; with it, you communicate directly to a customer’s inbox in a professional manner and to the right audience. The right audience is that list of people who have liked what you offer and have subscribed and for your services.

What is most relevant of email marketing is having an email list. If you have about 100 people on the list, it’s a good number to start from.

Email marketing actually involves sending commercial messages to a large audience but in most cases, even sending one message to one person is email marketing. It is meant to create awareness about what they offer, and lift sales for brands. Bearing in mind that an affiliate website can also bee a brand of its own, you can create an email list from the people who subscribe to your website and start with them. At some point, email marketing helps to transform website visitors into real buyers but if you don’t follow them up, they can never come back to your website you will have lost them forever.

You can use the email marketing strategy to do so many things on your website say winning back customers. Most times when a person purchases a product from your link, they may take long without coming back to your site. This is when you will have to send them a win-back message asking them to try out something else that is available on your site and may interest them.

The win-back technique is very simple to apply with niche sites. A niche site allows persons to create and manage their accounts within that particular website as they receive services from it. Should anyone have an account with the nitche site take long without opening it, the nitche admin will have to look into the matter and at the end, will send a win back a message to the account owner to remind them of their account. The win-back message, of course, has to contain some attractive information that can really prompt someone to visit the website once again.

This is definitely an option that you should use because honestly, I don’t think it has any pros except its costs but even though, how much will it cost you to run one campaign and how much would you benefit from a campaign. You will have impressed so many people, created awareness and generated lots of traffic.

Forget about social media for now if your website is potential and focus on email marketing. For social media may be costly and surely it may not be a convenient place for some people as they will be required to observe the Facebook, Twitter, etc, terms & conditions and advertising policies.

So in conclusion, I recommend email marketing as number one for your affiliate business. However, if you can opt for external ad campaigns to boost your website’s traffic, it also works but on a 25% rate remember because email takes 85%.

Freelance job Vs Affiliate marketing.

How well do you know these two? Did you know that there is yet a nother way through which you can multiply your earnings besides your 9-5 job? I have been talking about affiliate marketing all along as a major method to generate income and from my own point of view, yes it really is because it’s more popular every where. It has become almost everyone’s point of interest . Now there are a few people who have actually decided to do both of the projects above and they are doing very well. It’s possible you too can do them so long as you have ample time. There are a few differences between Freelancing and Affiliate marketing despite the fact that they are all online work from home Jobs. So, I am going to elaborate more about them and we want to see their similarities. Both affiliate marketing and freelancing have the good side and the bad side.Therefore, in the end we shall be able to identify both the good side and the bad side of each of them.


What is so common about the two?(similarities)

  • Both are work from home jobs. Both Affiliate marketers and Freelancers may not need to have an office in order to carry out what they are supposed to but their employers may be in office.
  • No specific qualifications may be required for one to participate in these jobs.
  • They are entirely free to join and start working. There is no appointment and no retirement.
  • You have unlimited time for work so, work at your own pace and no body will moderate you for what you do.
  • Both are flexible you can do them alongside other things.

What differenciates affiliate marketing from freelancing( comparison )?

The differences between the two kinds of online jobs above may also be their merits or demerits.

  • Affiliate marketing is a self employment directory because once you have authority to promote or refer people to a certain company whatsoever,it is your choice whether to do the promotions and drive traffic or not. Everything is in your hands take personal decisions pertaining your private job. Where as Freelancing is not private in any way, because as a freelancer, you only work on other people’s projects to be paid.
  • As an affiliate, you don’t need any past experience all you need is an email address in order to register and start promoting on the straight away even though you are just a beginner unlike freelancing. You need to be good at one or more skills to bid on available projects short of that, you may not be able to find what you can do.
  • Affiliate marketing is permanent once you have joined a company or business as a partner as long as the company continues to exist. This means a lifetime job and it’s possible to gain experience and then make it your official job for life while in freelancing, you will either get a permanent job or work on contracts which expire after a given period of time as agreed.
  • In the field of affiliate marketing, payments are assured as long as you make a complete conversion. Freelancer jobs may not have assured payments for  employees since most freelancing sites have a policy that says, if an employer is not sarticified with what his/her employee is doing, he or she may decide not to pay them until they perfect their work.
  • Earning is through commissions and bonuses which are at times recurting for affiliates while for Freelancers, earning is through your effort. You earn for only what you worked for. There are no bunuses in this case.
  • Affiliate marketing involves lead generation through advertising which really takes more time while freelancing may not need any of those except, in case one is given a job that involves attracting organic traffic.
  • As an affiliate marketer, jobs are readily available compared to freelancing where by you have to bid on a project by sending a proposal to the employer and wait to be chosen if there are many applicants which is also time consuming.
