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 When time goes by some links may expire or become outdated, and this can as such damage your rankings.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.

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.

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.

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE THE DETAILS.

All you need to build a long-lasting affiliate marketing business.

So, we have to discuss affiliate marketing in a concrete way right? Yes, in this post, I’m going to tell you all It takes to become very successful in the affiliate marketing business. This is to help you build a long-lasting business that can never collapse other than temporal commissions.

It is very simple to get there but very technical as it involves some serious investment. However, the affiliate network you are using, the products you promote, how you promote, do matter a lot and should be taken not as easy. DO NOT send buyers directly to your affiliate links. It is a waste of time.

You should choose a good affiliate network, a good/ best selling product/s and promote it/them in the right way to get increased sales. Consider taking email marketing as the best technique to capture recurring sales.

Procedure for affiliate marketing.

Below are steps to follow in order to build a complete permanent affiliate marketing business. Simply follow these steps.

STEP I

Find an affiliate network

It is important to research on affiliate-networks before you choose one. Some have got higher conversion rates while others have the opposite. Some affiliate networks have strict policies which may not favour you as an affiliate so, be keen when choosing one.

STEP-II

Look for a good product

Finding a product to promote should not be something very difficult because it is just a matter of clicking on it and getting approved by its vendor. However, you should consider the selling rate of the product and how competitive it may be in the market. You need to promote a product which is less competitive so you can sell it easily.

STEP-III

Set up an affiliate website

Once you are done with these three steps, you are good to begin promoting the product but as I told you earlier on, that I would talk about this in concrete, this is not the end. There are still more steps to take.

STEP- IV

Build an email list.

Since email marketing is the best, you need an email list. This will be the people you market product by sending marketing emails to them. So, in order to build a large email list of about 100+ contacts, you have to build a landing page first. A landing page is a micro-website whose purpose is only one- call to action. eg; Sign up here or subscribe to our newsletter. To build a landing page, simply use MailChimp.

STEP-V

Set up an autoresponder.

Now you have your landing page and let’s assume it is running ok! And when people sign up or subscribe to your page, there has to be a message to thank that person for example ‘Hello John! Thank you for signing up we are glad I have you as one of us.’ This is what an autoresponder will do even without you doing anything. It is automatic and this will help make subscribers feel convenient. So, to set up an autoresponder, you may need to buy a software which does that.

STEP-VI

Create a bridge page

A bridge page helps to separate a landing page from a product being promoted. It acts as a barrier between the two. A bridge page normally contains a few words and it is meant to encourage a buyer to continue to the bext web page. In page wards, it should contain something like this.

Congratulations, you are almost there.

Tap the button below to continue

STEP-VII

Once you have set up a bridge page, its time to begin running campaigns. Use the email list that you built. You need about 100 contacts and that not a very bad number to begin with.

Now, you have a complete system setup and here is how it will work.

  • You will be sending customised emails to your contacts. These emails will either contain a direct link to the affiliate network or a link to your bridge page which will redirect them to the affiliate product.
Email marketing still rocking.

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.

Affiliate marketing for YouTubers


Did you know you can maximise your affiliate revenue on social media? Try video marketing on YouTube.


Hey there, it’s Jeofrey here, and in this post today, I’m discussing affiliate marketing on YouTube. If you have ever created a video of any kind and uploaded it to that platform, then you probably have a clue on what I’m to discuss here.

Over the years, YouTube has been hosting videos of various kinds on the official YouTube.com website, making information available to everyone who visits the website. Remember this is where everyone goes to learn about what they don’t know and at last, they go satisfied with the rightful information that they were looking for. So, this makes a good traffic source for affiliate marketing.

How to start promoting on YouTube.

1. First, you have to create a YouTube channel where to publish videos in the form of product reviews. To create one, go to the YouTube home page, click on the menu button and select my channel. You will be asked to create a new channel if at all you don’t have one.

After creating it, add some settings to your new channel to suit its purpose.
In your videos, you will be showing how a product your promoting is used, how it works and of course discussing how it will help the buyer achieve what they need.

2. Of course, if you already have your niche, the next step is to copy your affiliate links or page links and add them to your video descriptions. Video descriptions normally contain texts and this gives an opportunity for you to add your links here. This is the most important aspect of YouTube’s content. Apart from their titles, video descriptions are what make a video to get ranked by search engines. YouTube SEO.

3. Start creating simple videos, reviewing the products you promote. Creating a video doesn’t cost you a single penny, all you need is a clear camera and maybe a computer if you are promoting software right? So, there is actually some good video software which can help you create amazing videos from scratch. For example, Videomaker FX, you may also use only a camera if you are to promote physical products. Here, you will be creating simple videos of your self explaining about a particular product. Also bear in mind that you must be very sure of what you are saying about the same product. If you lie to your viewers, when they buy it and find out that your information is not true, they will never buy from your links and will even unsubscribe to your Channel.

4. Simply refer people from YouTube to your landing page or directly to your affiliate niche by creating tutorials about the products you promote. People will want to try the product because they have seen you use it in your video so they won’t have to doubt it.

YouTube is the place to go since everybody is finding it easier and faster to learn from video tutorials rather than reading books and articles. If you have no idea how to get started with YouTube, here is a place you can find more about YouTube and it’s revenue.

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.

Online tips for succesful sales or lead generation.

Do you realize that most of your online visitors actually just read and leave? Your affiliate marketing business need to make conversions but how do you fulfill that need? Is there any way to go about it to ensure good results as an online affiliate ?

Yes, that’s very obvious and honestly, you can’t expect a conversion immediately after setting up your links. It could happen but very uncommon right? Yeah!, What you should count on is something a little bit unique, catchy, convincing and absolutely working to make visitors buy from the links. There is a multilevel marketing strategy strategy- Landing page creation.

Every effort made to market a product involves hard work, patience and technique since it usually takes time for your traffic to turn into customers and subscribers.

That’s when landing pages will be your next option. A landing page is also called a lead capture page, static page or destination page. It is a web page that appears as an optimized search result when a promotion, a marketing email or an online advertisement is clicked on.

A landing page is mainly to convert site visitors into leads or sales and this is a great strategy to getting conversions so easily with your affiliate website.

Landing pages can be micro websites or single pages within an organisation website. The site visitors get to these page, after clicking on a call to action button say;- “Download our news letter.” It can be an image or a line of texts running through. The page will contain a form that will help you to collect visitor’s personal information and it will be stored in the lead Page’s database.

So, a visitor will be filing out a form knowing that the information they are about to access is so valuable to them.

Landing pages are far more different from a home page because they function differently depending on their purposes therefore, a landing page does not appear any where in your site. I can’t be accessed so easily unless one clicks on a set call to action button.

The idea of landing pages really works better but takes time to build it especially a data form.

WordAds earnings(How WordPress sites make money with WordAds)

WordAds is very popular with WordPress users and has initially grown to be best advertising platforms on WordPress websites.

Like I said in the previous post, WordAds is an advertising network or platform which was created by Automatic-a company behind WordPress.com. Among other advertising networks worldwide, WordAds comes second in popularity after the legendary Google Adsence. These two networks rock the world of bloggers, companies and businesses both small and big.

Every website owner would want to monetize their site in an easy way to earn from it. There are many ways in which one can monetize a website ie, charging for services offered through the website, collecting donations and selling ones own physical products online with the help of simple buttons for receiving payments. WordPress sites have this options already organised in  ‘earnpage of the WordPress admin.

If you have your own product to sell, you can monetize with this option.
This is the easiest way to monetize your website.
This option enables you to become a WordPress affiliate where you will earn commissions for every person you refer to WordPress and it’s plugins too.

However,the most common and simplest way to manetize a website is by hosting ad campaigns provided by ads companies like WordAds and Google Adsence– which is owned by Google. Both of the ads networks mentioned above provide the same service but there is a slight difference in their set rules and terms of use. I will talk in details about their operation.

When it comes to monetization, it means one has to choose a way of generating income from their site. If you decide to monetize through advertising, you need to know these to be more informed. There is a system that each of the advertising companies uses in order to pay publishers. The payment made to publishers come through their effort driven impressions and views , pay per click and pay per thousand views are the two methods of payment used by Ads networks. These are two different things. Initially, both WordAds and Google Adsence used the same CPM system-pay per click(PPC) meaning you are paid for every ad click you receive on your website.

Advertisers bid for space on publishers’ websites and they can allow them to host ads on their sites with the help of an advertising network which is a middle man who does the negotiations on their behalf. Ads networks decide how much an ad should cost for each impression so, they can benefit and publishers benefit as well. This is very helpful because one person can not independently host ads campaigns of a a particular company on their own since it’s not easy to negotiate with big companies interns of payment one may even end up not being paid. This is why webmasters like WordAds and Google Adsence come in to help.

The WordPress users are previledged to have WordAds come along with the Jetpack plugin which has more monetization ways than it used to be. Jetpack keeps truck of all activities in the site and give it security protecting your site from Intruders. It also comes with advanced customization tools, analytics and more payment options for the site.

In 2017, Jetpack increased monetization possibilities for WordPress built sites and this has sparked a multitude user increase of about 111% WordPress sites which has made WordAds a convenient network place for both advertisers and websites. Despite the rising and falling in ad prices, there is still hope for increased earnings with WordAds.

It is not currently certain however, how much one can earn with WordAds but when  asked, Some Automatic specialists say it is difficult to speculate the exact amount since there has always been change in ads costs every month and it’s also mentioned that WordAds nolonger works according to pay per click(PPC) as Google does but instead it foccusses on PPV (pay per views) impressions. It is also not clear, how many impressions one is entitled to earn but there is a rough estimate of about 18,000 views per month. This method has since then made WordAds abit far different from Adsence which still works with PPC. Therefore, there is a set reach for WordAds users which I think is good in one way or the other. This system helps in away that as when you use it, by the time you reach 18k views or more in one month, you will have got an estimate number of clicks which in other words, WordAds hasn’t yet disclosed to publishers.

Generally, WordAds has a set limit per thousand views per month and it is open to every blog. Google Adsence does not have any set limit but it may not be easy for your blog to be accepted to use Adsence. It requires quality content for your blog and this therefore, makes WordAds suitable for bloggers yet new in the system while Adsence is best for expert bloggers.

How I crawled to success with WordPress (true facts).

Hey there!


I want to share a little story about me. How I started the to join the blogging commmunity. I will be taking about some challenges that I faced in the begining as well.

WordAds is an advertising platform for WordPress sites. When I created my first blog, I thought I had ventured in to something so so difficult because it was my very first site. I never knew what to do with the available editing tools on my site. I was given access to only a few tools at a time and thought that at some point, I would delete and forget of it which I eventually did. I had no regrets deleting it because I had not invested any money for it neither did I add any content because you know, I was totally a beginner. All this happened in the year 2016. I lost hope but didn’t give up yet.

In the year 2017-March, I decided to give it a nother trial,created a new site on a different platform that blew away my mind. This time, I had a unique experience on my WordPress website which is why I want to talk about it here.

When you create a website on WordPress, you have four price plans to choose from. There is a free personal(Basic plan), premum, Business and e-commerce plans The Free plan is number one on the list and this is what I dwelt on with my site for about a year. Throughout this period, I was busy learning how to blog meanwhile trying to create some good posts. It sounded unreal but also real some times. I began to go deeper in to learning how the whole WordPress systems works. That’s where I learnt about the other plans that I had left out. In fact with the free plan on WordPress, I was only making fan and wasn’t so serious about blogging but here is what made me to stand on my feet with much determination. ‘ The wordAds together with it’s features.’

As a beginner, I really had little belief that I would make money from a blog so, one day I decided to ask google ‘how do people earn from blogs?‘ From what I read on Google’s first result, I was able to know that blogs are paid for hosting adverts and campaigns of companies and payment is according to pay per click(PPC) which is the commonest method of payment for blogs.

It was high time I began to think of buying a domain name for my site, and get it hosted. That was a huge budget for me when looked at some hosting prices from other web hosts. When compared with the WordPress plans, I found it affordable to pay for both a domain and hosting on WordPress. It had simplified everything but I didn’t know. I never knew that WordPress had reduced domain and hosting costs for their clients. I upgraded to the basic plan which came with no plugins. Now to be sure of what I am talking about, let’s take a quick review of these plans below for WordPress site.

These plans are for blogs and personal sites and that’s a category where I belong.
CREAT A PERSONAL BLOG

As you can see the first plan (personal) is the cheapest with a small amount of $4 per month with a discount which is best for personal use. I began from here. But because of the objective that I had that was; earning from adds, this plan could not make me money for ads as it didn’t have any plugin that I could use in order to earn. The premium plan was my next option- $8 per month but there is a discount. I added just a few bucks to top up my initial payment on the personal plan and here I am. I came to discover new features in this plan though some were also in personal plan there were some additions. This plan works best for Freelancers and bloggers.

My experience with WordAds

Now as I mentioned earlier on, the personal plan doesn’t come with jetpack software options. Premium comes with already installed jetpack.

Install jetpack to you website

Now jetpack is a software which manages everything happening in your site, protects it from scam and manages the plugins instalation. WordPress premium plan comes with the jetpack system installed for you. You can add other plugins like Yoast SEO, Woocommerce and Google analytics for WordPress but these can only be applied in the business and e-commerce plans.

The Business and e-commerce plans are for small and big businesses respectively.
Buy a plan now


But both of the three plans above use word Ads to generate income. However, jetpack users are required to be on a premium plan($8/month – $99/year) to use WordAds. This plan is the very affordable no other website sells hosting services at such a low price. Get started with Woocommerce plugin monetize your website easily.

I will be talking in detail, the WordAds platform and how it actually works, in my next post.

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.

The most popular Content Management System (CMS) solutions world wide with over twenty million page views per day.

This guide will show you exactly how to build a website for your affiliate marketing program and make more earnings with it. Follow the steps below.

Steps

  • Create an account at WordPress.com if you are new to the website.
  • After creating an account, you will automatically be logged in. Choose the kind of site you are building from the suggestions list below.
  • Add a topic or choose one from the drop down list eg; cameras and photography or fashion or digital marketing, and click on (continue)button from the right hand side of the screen. At this level, you can scroll down to see how your website will look.
  • Add a business name eg; Webdesigner, then click on the (continue) button to head over to the next step.
  • It’s time to give your site an address. An address is a keyword that people can type in to a web browser so as to find your website. Enter a name or keyword that you want to be your domain name eg; WordPress.com, WordPress.ug.com etc. Normally when doing this, the system will give you sugestions for the keyword that you type because at times a keyword that you choose may be already existing as a domain in another website. Once this happens,the system will suggest to you a related domain name.
  • These suggestions come with different extensions and because of the variance in extensions, even their costs do vary. The ‘.com’ extension is most commonly used so, for this reason, it tends to cost more money than other extensions. You can change a given extension from the (more extensions) tab at the bottom.
  • There is always one free-domain-name option for users who are not yet sure whether to buy a custom domain or not. One is also allowed to map a domain that they already bought from a different domain issuer, to WordPress. Take for example I can map a domain that I own at Bluehost.com to my WordPress website.
  • Click on (start with a business plan) to buy a custom domain name for your site which will look like this; WordPress.com or WordPress.online depending on the extension you chose earlier on.WordPress like any other CMS, gives it’s users an advantage of creating a free website without a custom domain. A free domain on WordPress will contain an extension-wordpress.com. eg; if your web address is to be http://www.designer.com, instead of this address, on a free plan, you will have it as; designer.wordpress.com.However, you can buy a custom domain name and to replace the free one but the free domain can not be deleted because it’s permanent.
  • After you have bought a custom domain, you will be redirected to the WordPress’s website reader page. This is how it looks.
  • Begin by following your favourite sites here. Use the top menu buttons and learn how to use them.

  1. Engage with family members, relatives and friends. This is a great community to point at. You can just talk to them by word of mouth and ask convince them to buy from your link or you can help them and buy on their behalf.

This can be a great way to capture their attention and interests by reaching to them privately through messaging and also posting to the public. Also visit some public affiliate marketing grupus or buy & sell groups on Facebook, join and get approved to start sharing content with those communities.
  3. Choose good product for specific seasons eg; clothings for the Christmas season. Obviously people will always want to purchase items to use in this festive season so that’s already a target audience source to count on.
  4. Post your links proffessionally by giving detailed explanations for them so that your content may not be ignored or considered as scam. Try to cover the links where possible.

How to create an affiliate marketing website

It is not mandatory to own a website for one to do affiliate marketing. This business is actually a tendency of people being subsidiaries of an organisation or company whatsoever, to give a hand in hikening the rate at which goods or services are sold. For that reason, companies don’t give any form of restriction concerning how and where they place their links but instead, they give their clients(affiliates) the freedom to bring customers using any method that they prefer one of which is through show casing products on an affiliate’s website. This is a common practice with experienced affiliate marketers.

Ideally, a website is a best place for showcasing a number of products in order to attain increased sales. You may need a well built website, beautifully designed for the kind of work that you will use it for. It takes one a few bucks to activate a website and get it running but you can also create a free web that you will share to your local community and they can access it locally without using web browsers.

Building a targeted audience and turning them in to buyers.

It is quite vital building a targeted audience for your business, affiliate site or niche. Having a target audience helps you to establish a community that will be around your site all the time because it is a kind of audience that already likes what you have to offer

Beginner affiliates normally tend to rush for high competitions with big affiliate marketing sites, which is not right. If you do that, your site is most likely to be buried down to the bottom of those highly ranked websites. The search engines will not recognise your site especially if it has the the same or related content as other ranking websites.

One could begin with family and friends around as their first priority. Once you have these in your line, it is them now to help you bring in more customers through their inspirations. It takes a little longer to build a large community but be patient enough because it takes time and it’s what we invest in order to achieve.

So, when you have a number of people interested in what you share about in your site, you can turn them in to real customers by creating a landing page with guidance on how to make and complete transactions. Make them believe that you are not a scammer or spammer in any way and be consistent. That way, you will keep getting new customers on and on and on.

Optimize you website to search engines with unique keywords related to what you are writing about. This will make it easier for the search engines to identify that your site has something different and so it should be displayed in searches. Once you get displays in searches, it is so easy to bring more people through search results that your site appears in. This is a tip for SEO.

Tip; Your keywords must be within the first 500 words of your content for the search engines to recognise. The reason why most affiliates fail to make sales because they don’t have people targeted to their affiliate sites

How to start affiliate marketing from scratch

Hi! Welcome to this blog. You probably could have landed here because you were looking for something related to affiliate marketing. I am happy that you are finally here and hope that this article is going to help you genuinely with all the steps to affiliate marketing. You may want to know what affiliate marketing means so, let’s make it familiar to you so quick.

To begin with, affiliate marketing is the idea of advertising for one or more products belonging to a company or retail business in a bid to get paid through commissions earned from their own referrals who have bought the products. There are so many definitions to describe affiliate marketing but this is the simplest. If this does not satisfy you, then you can still google to find other detailed explanations about affiliate marketing but I think that is enough to make one understand its meaning.

Since we have defined affiliate marketing, I believe we have known what exactly it means so, we want to know who an affiliate is and how this method works as far as earning online is concerned. Let us read from the definition below.                                  

An affiliate is referred to anybody who partners with a company or a retail business and is approved by these parties to promote their products or services in order to get them, potential buyers. This is a strategy commonly used by huge businesses to make big sales in the market. Below are some commonly used terms, explained as used in the affiliate business.

Affiliate marketers– who are also called affiliate partners because they partner with the companies whom they promote their products or services. The people that an affiliate refers to the company or retail business are called “referrals” and the money that a company pays to an affiliate after a referral has bought a product or a service is known as a “commission.” An affiliate partnership is a legal agreement between the two parties involved in the affiliate marketing business. This comprises of terms and conditions of the company or retail business. One has to read the terms and conditions before accepting the partnership and if they do not agree with the terms and conditions, one is allowed to cancel the registration process.

How to partner with a company, retail business or merchant for their affiliate program.

To become a partner of a certain company, you must accept to abide by their rules and regulations and follow their privacy policy.

Follow the steps below         

  1. Go to the website of the company you want to promote its products. ( Tip)- Consider the price of a product and commission amount offered by a company because some companies have varying commissions depending on the category of products they sell. Also note that the higher the price, the higher the commissions.               

2. Look out for their services on the blog section/page or at the footer credit of the home page. Note that not all companies have affiliate programs so, as you decide, look for one that already has this program running for example; Jumia ,Nijji , amazon.com, Sfi.com, clickbait.com and many others. DO NOT use sensitive information on these sites if at all they ask for it. Information like bank accounts and phone numbers are not necessary during the registration process so be keen while you partner with the company.

3. Find your referral code from your profile dashboard on the website and copy it to your clipboard to begin sharing it. One thing you need to know about link sharing is;-one may decide to share their referral codes either directly or indirectly. Once they are approved/ given permission to promote a product, a link is generated automatically by the website for the affiliate to begin using on various platforms.

Most starter affiliates do share their links directly by sending direct messages to friends on social media which is sometimes not OK with some media sites like Facebook & Messenger and Twitter. These platforms are very strict with their privacy policies and they don’t allow unnecessary sharing of links so, that makes it a bad method of marketing products.

However, you can go the indirect way like many affiliate marketers do. You will need to create a blog website or niche site with your own domain name for example; (website).com or (peter).ug.com or affiliate. online where you have the authority to post any link because you will be the one managing it. To create a website, you can visit WordPress.com or Simplesite.com and this can take you only a minimum of five minutes to build up your website. After you have created a website, buy a domain name for your site to get a web address and then host it on any web hosting websites like Bluehost for it to be available in the search engines like Google, Bing, Web Crawler etc.

Customise your website with a beautiful design theme that suits your blog’s purpose. Start posting content containing your affiliate links and drive traffic to your website. The main source of traffic is social media especially Facebook and you can send people directly to your affiliate website by creating a Facebook page that’s all you need to get started.
