What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing simply means when you promote other people’s products and services and get paid a commission whenever a sale is made. You can promote it through your website, paid advertising, social media, etc. Let me explain to you the 3 different types of affiliate marketing below.
Simple Affiliate Marketing
These are your basic pay-per-click affiliate marketing campaigns where you need no presence and no authority in the niche of the product you’re currently promoting. There’s no connection between you and the customers, and all you’re doing is putting an affiliate link in front of someone via Google Adwords, Facebook ads, etc. in the hopes that they’ll click on your link, buy the product so you can earn a commission.
The main reason this type of affiliate marketing model is so attractive to many people is because no presence or authority is needed. It takes time to build up a reputation and trust with certain groups of people online, and many people are just too scared to commit to working on a blog or website, or just don’t have the time. For many, this is the only option they can go with.
I don’t like such business model because to be sincere, this is not a business model. It’s an income generating model, yes, but is it a business model where I can build relationships with the customers? No, with Simple Affiliate Marketing you become a behind-the-scenes middle man. And that’s not good for any business minded person.
If you happen to be a simple affiliate marketer and it’s working for you, I applaud you and wish you continued success. It’s a lot more difficult than it sounds, so thumbs up to those of you finding success with it.
Suggested Affiliate Marketing
Another form of affiliate marketing is what I will call Suggested Affiliate Marketing. This is a case where you have some sort of presence online either through a website, a podcast, a video channel, etc, and you have affiliate links to products related to your niche, but they’re for products you don’t really give testimony of having used them.
In those days when text link ads were really very popular, I remember seeing every single internet business website always placing advertisement for text link ads all over their website. Most of these sites did not actually use the text link ad service on their own sites. On many personal finance blogs, you’ll see a lot of different affiliate advertisements for things like ING, Everbank, LendingClub, and numerous other financial institutions.
I doubt that every person who places one of those links on their blog actually uses each of those products and services. Placing affiliate links on your site that are related to your niche is a great strategy to earn extra income. Whether it’s in the sidebar in banner form, or in a text link at the bottom of your blog post, because you have a website and some authority, people will trust you and your decision to place the ad on your site.
Suggested Affiliate Marketing is good, but I can tell you that you will get more success with the affiliate marketing model that is about to follow, just read on.
Immersed Affiliate Marketing
Immersed Affiliate Marketing is a case of recommending products to other people as a result of the satisfaction you derived from using that particular product, you truly believe in it and personally recommend it to your audience. Not in a banner advert or somewhere similar to ad sections, but within your content, as part of your website and strategy for whatever it is you’re talking about. The product almost becomes something your visitors need to have because you made it a part of your business structure.
It’s your own personal involvement, experience and testimony about the product that will make the offer so attractive to your audience.
You should however take into consideration a level of responsibility that you have to uphold while making these kinds of recommendations, especially if you have a lot of authority and influence over your followers. This is something I take very seriously. If it were up to me, this the only way affiliate marketing would be done, because to me it’s the most honest and most helpful.
Immersed Affiliate Marketing is a complete opposite of Simple Affiliate Marketing where you may not even be known by the consumer before/during/after the transaction. Instead, this is you talking directly to those who may need a product that you’re offering. This is not using your money in order to make money, like with Simple Affiliate Marketing. It’s using your reputation, trust and authority to get your audience to follow your recommendations.
Blogging has evolved over the years, hiltherto micro blogs were attached to large sites but nowadays large website are been run as blogs. A lot of people are going into blogging at a very alarming rate nowadays with majority of them not even knowing what it really takes to run a blog successfully.
The internet wasnt left out of the current transformation being experienced by humans in our terms of communication. Gone are the days of static websites, this is an era of WEB 2.0 platforms spearheaded by Blogs and Social Networking Sites. Let’s help you learn more about blogging and how to do it successfully.
What is Blogging?
Blogging simply refers to the term that can be used to describe a situation whereby a webmaster regularly updates his/her website with regular contents on the same niche. The webmaster in this term can be reffered to as a Blogger and the website a Blog. The contents could be entertainment articles, sports, humours, societal issues, news, religion, etc. You can sell advertising space on your blog or add affiliate products to your blog to earn money.
Blogs are usually been set up on blogging tools or programs on the web which accept informations you supply through the backend (this is called admin section in wordpress), into a database and displays it as a webpage through the frontend. Whenever a person visits your web url, the program will send a command to the database to collect information and display it to that user on your site. Depending upon those commands, each page viewed on your blog may look different or have different content. Thus, blogs are often referred to as dynamic content generators compared to the old static content websites.
To be a succesful Blogger you have to be a good writer in whatever niche your blog is about, you also have to possess a good social networking skills so you can build a social audience for you blog. Blogging is not all about a Blogger regularly updating a Blog with contents. As a blogger you also have to build traffic to your blog and as a result of this you will have to acquire some good SEO knowledge to run your blog successfully.
What will you be writing about? Or are you going to be posting only photographs? Or post photos and talk about them? Do you want to write about various topics or just a specific topic?
When starting a blog I advice you choose a topic to build your blog around, this is called niche. You dont have to write and post anything you can come up with, no. Your entire blog need to be about something, it needs to have a tagline.
When your blog is built around a specific topic or subject in mind, you can then be able to make plans on how you will be delivering the neccessary informations through it. It is not all about how often you update your blog, it is also about what you’re posting. Will you only post links and a few comments to guide people to related information or information of interest? Or will you actually write and explain topics, like articles? Or a combination? Or just deal with photographs creating a photoblog? What information will you present and how will you present it. These are all decisions that only the blogger can make.
Choosing a theme for your new blog.
If you are making plans for blogging about your lifestyle (i.e personal blog), then you have to make your blog similar to your kind of personality. If you will be blogging about entertainment stuffs, then you have to create an entertaining blog and this all starts from the theme.
The appearance of your blog will give the first impression to your web visitors about what to expect. The first thing that is noticeable whenever you visit any website is the theme it was built with, so you have to choose the right theme for your blog.
When you are done with choosing the right theme for your blog, then you have to start writing. Start making schedules and timetable of creating unique posts, for the start you have to be updating your blog up to 4 times per week, give your visitors a new thing whenever they return.
If its a personal blog then you have to be taking steady notes of some key things during the day and post it before you go to bed. But if it’s something else apart from being personal, you have to make research and always come up with a unique post every 2 or 3 days. Your visitors love to read similar and consistent content but with few surprises or changes whenever they visit. Always set 1-2 hours aside everyday to come up with something you can be posting to your blog.
No matter what your blog posting schedule may look like, always challenge yourself with goals and target on how to come up with something new, derive motivation from attaining a set out goal. Create series of articles or posts and handle them as an ongoing project.
Updating your blog with series posts will always give your readers something to write home about whenever they come visiting. Come up with great articles that will give other bloggers on your niche a good reason to link to your blog, with this you are already building a large audience.
Dont come apologizing for not being able to update you blog for some weeks, instead just explain the developments that have been going on in your life and watch your readers start giving you their thoughts. Blogging is not just about posting and updating your blog, its also about creating trends and you have to jump at every opportunity to do this.
There are lots of online programs that will promise you a lot of unbelievable traffic to your site within a very short period of time, they are all trying to sell their products or services to you and majority of them are nonsense at best and damaging to your website at worst.
Improvising tricks and blackhat seo techniques to build traffic, increase your search engine optimization, and get a higher PageRank with Google have all been done before. It may work immediately but the result wont last for long and your website may get penalised during the process, so it is not advisable for anyone to engage in any cunny tricks when it comes to building traffic for your blog.
If you want to keep building more traffic to your blog then you have to always create new/unique contents that are not just worth reading but also worth linking to.
When you always update your blog with quality posts, other website owners would easily mention your blog as a point of reference within their posts.
These are some of the best methods to start making money online in this year 2016.
