Learn how to monetize Facebook traffic

Facebook TRaffic BitterStrawberry

Facebook Traffic Bitter Strawberry Guide

In this day and age everyone that has any sort of business or wants to try to make money with affiliate marketing knows that social media is very important.

There are plenty of ways to help your business with social media, but one that’s been heavily discussed and is the most well-known and with the most potential is Facebook.

Even before you’ve had a real plan you’ve thought about how you could make money with Facebook but probably didn’t know where to begin.

But this is where we come in! We’ll teach you what you can do to become an expert!

First things first – your niche

The very first thing you have to do to be able to monetize your Facebook traffic is to find your niche. You can’t just make a Facebook page, put on it everything you want, add random people and expect to make money.

You have to find a niche. It has to be something that you know a lot about or something that you can research and master. The more defined your niche is, the better. You will then have the right people liking your page and they will be a lot more active and willing to click or buy what it is you are selling.

Understanding Facebook’s rules and restrictions

It’s highly important that before you get things started you make sure you know the rules of the game. This means that you have to check all of Facebook’s restrictions and rules and see which content is banned from this social media website.

There are some things that will get instantly banned if you post them, like for example everything that is considered by Facebook and other users as containing nudity or disturbing content of cruelty and other malicious behavior.

You do not want to risk having your content taken down and your account and page being closed indefinitely. Every single time your page gets closed or restricted you are losing users, clients and money, so don’t risk it.

What is more, every country has its own set of rules of what is and isn’t accepted and depending on which country you settle on marketing to you have to take these rules into account.

If you are targeting various countries, then you will have to work even harder to create content fit for all of them at the same time.

The rules of each country will affect the niche you’ve chosen as well. There are some domains which are off limits in most places. We’re talking about the adult industry, the gambling industry and even the dating one.

You shouldn’t take any actions before you have understood every rule and have studied the market to see if there’s room for you.

Offers, verticals and market research

It’s really important if you actually have a product of your own or if you are going for affiliate marketing. Getting your own product can be really time consuming and it can also cost you a lot of money. Even those that have a great idea for a product you will have to invest a lot of money in the beginning.

From a few thousands to tens of thousands of dollars you will have to have a big budget as well as wait a couple of months until you have your product and business up and running. You also have to think about the distribution of the product, a warehouse to keep the product in and even a call center for when the customers have questions of issues.

If you don’t have your personal product you will have to choose your vertical and then go on to find what offers are available and which of them could work for you. Deciding to become an affiliate is the easier and cheaper way to go. The easiest way is to test and find the best product to promote from an affiliate platform.

You will have to research the market and see what works, what trends are currently in place. If you can do a broad study and find something that has been trending for a long time and has the potential of an evergreen then you’re set. You want something that can work for a long time.

E-commerce is for beginners

The easiest way to start until you are no longer a beginner is to stick to the things you know and understand completely. This means focusing on real products. For example, convincing people to buy some things on the internet and have them shipped to their home is a lot easier than convincing them to try new software or subscribe to something.

People are more likely to want to buy something they can actually keep and they know they need. This is why e-commerce works best for you in the beginning, even if you might not make as much money. There are plenty of things that sell great on Facebook like wonder-bras, black masks for blackheads, gold masks, diet pills etc.

Learn how to make prelanders

Prelanders will be your best friends. These can really help. Sure, they will take quite some work because you have to make one for every single product you are trying to help sell. You can also use default pages but these get banned quite often because a lot of affiliates send Black Hat traffic to them. This is why prelanders are your best option at the moment.

You have to buy a domain and create your prelanders. For every product you need a different version. Make it catchy and convincing. Don’t forget to have cookies, terms and conditions as well as a return policy.

The better you prelander is, the more chances you have of people actually buying something. This applies to every kind of marketing and no matter where you are trying to sell, prelanders work great, not only for Facebook.

If you want to make sure people are buying, you have to make them feel special. This means putting a countdown on the offer, letting potential buyers know that there are

only a few products left and that the offer is about to expire to make them speed up the process of decision and buy it.

Optimize everything

It’s important whether your Facebook page is just at the beginning and growing or if it’s already quite large and has been around for some time. If it’s old then you should make sure to let things sink in slowly and update the users about the changes that will happen. They should have all the information available before you start trying to make money off them.

If the product you will be selling isn’t that popular yet, you must give the users some history and facts on it and even some recommendations from someone they trust, like a local celebrity.

When a product was marketed to the same audience but with different campaigns, one involving a local celebrity (right) and the other one an international celebrity (left), the performances of the ads were quite different. Below them you can see the landing page of the product.

Product Landing Page

Product Landing Page

 

Shockingly enough, the local celebrity did better than the international one. The CTR for the local celebrity campaign was 70% higher than the other one, with a lot more people deciding to go to the “sale page” and it also had a 15% higher CR%.

You should make sure that you never break their trust because if they do not trust you they will not buy anything from you and they will unlike your page and move on.

When you take a page from 0 and start building it up it might be a bit easier because you can start marketing right away without having to worry about losing any users. If they are there then you can be sure that they like what you do and agree with it.

But before you can get people to like your page you have to optimize it and make it clear what its purpose is. The landing page is really important and you want to make sure that you make everything really easy for the potential buyers.

Use all the tricks you have to improve your landing page

Get a flat design landing page, have a call to action on the top and a sign-up form on the upper right side. The sign-up form can be sticky and scrollable. The most important information should be at the top and at the bottom, preferably on the right side. If you have any special information like refund policies and free shipping, for example, they should be easy to see from the beginning.

Studies show that when they open a page people usually look first on the top left side and then glance over the top of the page towards the right part. Therefore, all of your important selling points should be easy to see at first glance. By the time the user has read the upper part he should have a basic understanding of your product and on the right side at the end a call to action for conversion (sign up, order form). Order or buy buttons can also work in the middle, but never on the left side.

You must keep in mind that most users tend to bounce from your page in just 15 seconds. The time-frame varies from industry to industry, but that’s the average time.

Try a 5 second test. You show your page to a user for 5 seconds and ask them to answer a couple of questions about your page. If they can’t tell you the most important things about your page and product then you should rethink the entire thing and start over.

Look at the picture below to see an example of an ad that passes the 5 second test and works.

Ad example

 

Get free widgets for you landing page and make sure that you don’t forget anything that could help you. Make sure that everything is optimized and can be easily accessible from a desktop computer as well as from mobile devices.

If you’ve chosen a tier 2 country for your marketing campaigns as a target then you should use the language that those people speak, don’t just stick with English for everything. Not everyone speaks English and people will be more convinced by something in their native tongue.

If you don’t know that language hire some translators, you can find ones that do a good job, and are also cheap, on freelancing websites. Give fiverr.com and elance.com a go, they have a lot of professionals that can help you.

Know your audience

For your marketing campaigns to have any effect you have to know everything about your audience and cater your marketing to their needs. This means that you should know what age groups they are and what gender, as well as what operating systems they use.

So, if you want to advertise on mobile devices something for a younger audience everything is fine, but if what you want to market for an older population then you can’t use the same ads as you would use for the younger people and it’s important that you optimize for desktops and not for mobile devices. Not as many people of the older generation use mobile devices to order things so they won’t really need this optimization, but for younger customers it’s vital.

A great tool you can use is AdEspresso. You can use it for free for 30 days and you don’t need to put in any credit card details until your trial expires. You can choose whether or not to use it and pay for it after the 30 days. This tool can help you split campaigns and make ads to cater for different types of target audiences.

This tool is great for testing purposes. Instead of creating ads with different texts one by one, AdExpresso lets you add several headlines and multiple ad texts and then creates tens of ad versions at once. They also offer a spy-tool that grants you the option of seeing the competitors’ Facebook ads for free so that you can find inspiration. Check out the competition HERE!

Those that have many campaigns at the same time which they want to test should go for another tool that works with google analytics as well. The optimizer will make sure that everything works fine even if you do not have the time to optimize each one of them.

How to actually do it

You should keep your eye on Google Analytics and Facebook Insights at the same time and make sure that there are no major discrepancies between them. If there are you have to try and understand why this is happening and what you are doing wrong.

Whenever you want to advertise you should always have in mind that nothing works without A/B testing. You need to create ad groups based on age, sex etc and then create separate ads for each group.

The first week for each ad is the test week. You make a lot of different ads and don’t target that deep. 20 to 30% of your results might surprise you. The next week you go deeper with your targeting.

With every new piece of information you gather, you leave out some of the ads and redo others. When you see that one of them is doing better than the others you increase the budget on that one, but you don’t go from 1 to 100 instantly, you do it gradually. You don’t know how it will scale up and there are infinite pools of possible clients.

Facebook will take money for clicks and a lot of the people that see your ads and click on them might not buy anything. Make sure to keep your eye on your ROI and see what percentage is good for your business.

If you have a shopping site you might also want to try Remarketing and show the customers ads for products that they have previously seen or bought.

How to make money with Cash On Delivery CPA Offers!

Hey guys as most of you know I wrote about Leadbit CPA Network a few days ago, today I would like to talk about one of their best types of offer offer. It is really hot and has crazy conversion rates; COD or Cash On Delivery CPA offers. Cash on Delivery simply means once the user order’s a product they don’t have to prepay for the product ( Using their credit card). Instead, the payment is made once the product is delivered to the consumer.  COD is a big thing these days, especially in Asia and other countries where credit card usage is not common.  Here are a few reasons why when buying through the internet people prefer Cash On Delivery.

Cash on Delivery is a perfect solution for those people who want to check the product before paying for it. For example you might have heard about aliexpress products, where people end up paying for something which looked different in pictures. In such cases it’s a long and timely process to get your money back.

Everyone is concerned about their privacy. It’s always hard to earn peoples trust to make them pay using a credit card, especially in CPA Marketing pay per sale offers. It’s always hard to persuade people to use their credit card for the payment and make a purchase, many conversions are lost just because of this, as you will find the internet is full of complaints about credit card fraud. Cash on Delivery is a perfect solution to this problem and can really boost your conversion rates.

Cash On Delivery CPA Offers

Why Cash On Delivery offers are big money makers!

So here is the best part, you can promote high ticket health related offers from Leadbit, and target geo’s which are not very common in general affiliate networks. For example, a great product to promote is Bactefor; an anti-parasite product targeting Vietnam. One of the major problems in countries like Vietnam is  Parasitic diseases. Check out this article  Up to 44% of Vietnamese infected with parasitic worms. With a population of 95,414,640 in 2017  and 51,333,076 Internet users, as of March 2017 it’s a great opportunity for affiliate marketers. The vietnamese market has  almost no competition and is a true unsaturated market where no affiliates are promoting their offers, and these kinds of offers bring a great opportunity for the affiliates who know how to take make use of a good opportunity.

What traffic sources you can use ?


The sky is your limit! One of the best things about INTL offers is that Ad networks have different advertising polices for every country. For example; If Google Adwords is not allowing you to promote something in the USA, they might allow you to promote the same product in some other country. (I would advise you to carefully read their advertising policy and guidelines, I don’t want people come to me complaining about how they stupidly tried to push offers and they got banned!) You can use anything from Social media traffic to PPC, native ads to pop traffic. For example; on Popads.net Vietnam is the 3rd biggest country for traffic inventory, with over 1.7 Mil unique visitors a day, and a max bid of $0.04500, this is some dirt cheap traffic you can take advantage of! Also, with over 40,000,000 Facebook subscribers, Facebook is a great network you can take advantage of, aside from buying dirt cheap traffic from Native Ads networks.

So this was today’s article, Are you ready to take advantage of this awesome opportunity ?

Leadbit Affiliate Network Review !

Hey guys, If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you would know I never vouch for CPA Networks without a reason, or unless I really believe in those networks. Today I would like to talk to you guys about another great network which I personally believe can make you great money and help you guys out with your successful affiliate marketing business.

It’s always hard to find legit and professional CPA Networks these days, unfortunately in our industry there are plenty of networks, however if you ask me about honest and professional networks, there are very few. The problem is, most of them will not pay you on time, Do not have direct offers and completely rely on brokered offers or have such issues, plus they won’t have a proper team to manage their affiliates.

Leadbit Affiliate Network

Leadbit Affiliate Network

Personally, I love networks who make payments on time, and don’t focus only on brokering offers from other networks, and the have responsive support/ affiliate managers, who actually care about their affiliates. Unlike usual affiliate managers who try to sell to their affiliates instead of helping.

London based Leadbit is just what I like, not offering their affiliates the same old beat up offers. Instead, they have plenty of exclusive offers for Asia and Europe GEOs specially for the countries including China,Vietnam,Taiwan,Thiland and Hong kong. Leadbit is a direct advertiser for their offers in Europe and Asia, which makes them one of the best options for affiliates.

before I start off further I must say I really love the design of the network website, Its done very well it looks clean and beautiful. I would also like to mention that they use In-house proprietary tracking platform.

Here are a few reasons why you should join Leadbit!

—–> Join Leadbit Network Today <—–

Easy Payment Terms & On time payments

With a minimum payout threshold of only $25, and on Demand payment frequency, this is every affiliate’s Dream come true. There are not many affiliate networks offering this sort of payment terms to their affiliates, It’s definitely a great way to keep the cash flow going for your affiliate campaigns.

Unique offers

Being the advertisers themselves, Leadbit has offers which you won’t find on other networks, That gives affiliates working with Leadbit a leverage, as they can request customer creatives and landing pages from their affiliate managers, which always helps affiliates to make big money.

Following are a few offers types which I personally liked.

COD ( Cash On delivery)  :
Cash on delivery is an awesome idea and can work great specially it can boost the conversion rate, It’s a great way to earn your customers trust. By promoting cash on delivery offers your conversion rate will definitely skyrocket. For example, lets say you are buying a weight loss supplement, and there are two sites in front of you, one offering cash on delivery option and another asking for your credit card which one will you go for? I know most of you will opt for cash on delivery!

1 click flow offers:

1 click flow offers are pin submit offers which are highly lucrative offers and when matched with the right traffic, they make people huge money(1k-10k a day easily). The best thing about 1 click conversion is that there is no need to wait for a billable SMS message to be sent for the conversion pixel to fire or forcing the user to do a PIN submit.

International Offers

While mainstream affiliate networks focus only on usual first world GEOs, there is a huge opportunity to cash in on international market. For example offers from countries like Russia, China, and other Asian and European countries mean you can get access to offers from those GEOs, which are still unsaturated and many affiliates are not aware of these or don’t have access, this simply means less competition.

Leadbit Affiliatenetwork offers

Reputable company

Whenever choosing a company I always suggest my readers to choose someone who has been in industry for a while and has reputation. Leadbit has been in the market since 2013, and so far there are no complaints against them. The network is being run by a very professional team of passionate people who love to help out their affiliates. Leadbit also hosts regular affiliate marketing conferences and meet ups. They have been hosting  Moscow Affiliate Conference along with STM Forum .

Moscow Affiliate Conference & Party

Moscow Affiliate Conference & Party

Supportive Team

One thing which matters most in affiliate marketing is to have a supportive affiliate manager. So far in my experience Leadbit has a great team of affiliate managers who are always willing to help you out.

Tools for affiliates

This is something really big for newbies in particular. Leadbit offers you an in-house tracking platform, so you don’t have to buy expensive trackers and you can start with using the tracker which is provided by the network. This way you can spend all your money on buying traffic, instead of spending your money on buying expensive trackers.

Why Cloaking is not Good for a Long Term Affiliate Business

In the past  2 weeks, I have been contacted by almost 20 people on facebook and through emails, basically asking for a way out, As they are tired of the regular cat and mouse game with traffic networks.
First of all, cloaking itself is not bad and can be a very effective tool against bot traffic and to prevent your competitors from spying on you..

The concept of Cloaking

The concept of Cloaking is very simple, using cloaking you can redirect the unwanted traffic to another page or website. For example; let’s say I don’t want traffic from a certain country, city or a traffic source on my blog, I can easily redirect them to another website based on their visitor data.

How affiliate marketers use traffic

In affiliate marketing, cloaking is mostly used to deceive traffic networks. Let’s say I want to promote an offer which violates Google/Facebook advertising policy, using cloaking we can show a legit offer but in reality promote the offer which violates the traffic network policies to people.

For example, let’s take  a scammy Offer like  “forskolindietdr.com”. If I promote this offer directly on Google adwords/Facebook ads, my campaign will never be approved by the traffic networks, as it violates their advertising guidelines.  In order to promote my offer on these networks I would have to use cloaking, which simply means I will redirect Google/Facebook reviewers to a reputable website, something like this NHS Article.  This website is for the National Health Service in the United Kingdom, I can easily get away with it and get my campaign approved; where all Google/facebook reviewers and Bots are redirected to the NHS website, and all the other traffic ( visitors ) are sent to the scammy weightloss offer.

affiliate Cloaking

How affiliates use Cloaking

Why Cloaking works

The main reason people tend to go for such offers is the over exaggerated trust that people have on sites such as Google and Facebook. This relates more to the older generations, because they are less aware of scams and how the internet is used to manipulate people into spending money. For example, grandpa’s and grandma’s  are more susceptible to buying things online, without researching, as compared to younger generations. To some, the internet is still fairly new and a large group of people are still unaware how internet works.

Another reason is the attractive ads, the colors and the pull element to them. Advertisers are aware of what their users are searching for and what they want, so they appeal to that nature. Like any ad. For example weight loss consumers will want imagery, and information about how “quick and effective” the products are, they are less likely to read the fine print, because they have already been lured by the attractiveness of the ad. these offers are more likely to focus on attractive ads rather than factual information, their aim isn’t to gain the trust of their consumers, but to just make sales.

Why Cloaking is Not Worth your time

Now let’s talk about cloaking in 2017, have you noticed cloaker prices are falling down ? There were days when cloakers used to charge thousands of dollars! These days you can easily buy a cloaker tool for $200 per month. The reason is that the good days of cloaking are gone, now everyone and their dog has a cloaker account and the competition is getting higher and higher.. Apart from that, traffic networks are coming down hard on affiliates using cloakers, which has caused the account ban rate to increase … It’s really hard for the affiliates to make sure they have sufficient supply of ad network accounts as compared to the ban rates by the ad networks.

So if you are thinking to just enter the world of cloaking, I would advise you to save your time and efforts and use them on something better, long lasting and completely whitehat, instead of shortcuts like cloaking. Just like the last stage of blog networks, they were a big thing amongst affiliates a few years ago, until google wiped them out completely. Yes there are still blog networks, but only those who know their stuff. All those who were in the market who had no real skill got wiped out, I am sure that’s what’s going to happen here soon. Especially with tech giants specially focusing on Artificial intelligence, it won’t take long… Facebook has already started; Read this  : News Feed FYI: Addressing Cloaking So People See More Authentic Posts Adding to this, Google is already working against cloaking behind the scenes and they have  shifted their anti cloaking preparations to a new office ( un confirmed source).

Focus on Long Term Business Goals

I have been working in this industry for 7 years and i have seen many shortcut methods like this which play with systems. Again I would like to mention private blog networks as one of the best examples. If you are serious about an affiliate marketing business, you should always try avoiding shortcuts which play with the system. You might make some money for a while but at the end of the day you will learn no real skills and once your method dies down you will have to start again from zero.

I always advise people to start with whitehat methods , It could be slow, but will teach you skills which you can use anywhere in your life. It also often takes the same effort as Black Hat methods. However once you are established you have skills that  can yield better results, as compared to shortcuts like cloaking. It also depends on your own morals as well, if you want to sell scammy products to people or if you want to make a living by promoting legit products. That Decision is yours …

Affiliate Marketing For Dummies The 7 Steps To Start Successful Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing has been around for a very long time, and it has been one of the most common methods for a lot of people to make money online. For those who are new to the term “Affiliate marketing” it simply means you earn by promoting products online, earning a cut from each sale. There are millions of products that you can promote online, which are offered by various companies around the world.

With affiliate marketing, you don’t need to create your own product in order to start making money online. You simply take a look at the products that are offered by other companies, and then try to promote those products. When somebody buys the product through your affiliate link, then you will be given the percentage of the sale into your account. Often, once the payment reached a certain threshold, you will be able to cash out your affiliate commission, either via check or bank transfer, but some networks/companies pay out on a sale to sale basis.

For instance, if you are promoting a product with a $97 price tag, and the company that releases the product offers you a 50% commission for every sale that you make using your affiliate link, then you will get $48.5 for every sale that you make. If you can make 100 sales per month for that product, then you can cash out a monthly affiliate commission of $4850 to your bank account.

The concept of affiliate marketing is very simple, but it can be very difficult to follow for an absolute beginner. If you want a step by step guide to affiliate marketing, here are a few steps that you need to follow. These steps will help you to understand more about affiliate marketing, and help you get started on your own affiliate business as quickly and as easily as possible.

Step #1 – The Foolproof Formula To Pick The Right Niche

Before you even pick the products to promote for your affiliate business, you have to pick the niche that you want to delve into. A niche is  a small category of a topic that you want to work on. It shouldn’t be too broad, and it needs to have its own group of audience. For instance, “weight loss” can be considered a niche for your affiliate business, but it is a very broad niche.

For affiliate marketing to be effective, you have to pick a narrower niche that contains a group of audience desperate to find a good solution for their problems. Thus, for the case of “weight loss”, you can simply pick a narrower niche, such as “weight loss for young moms”. This is a better pick, since you can focus on your promotion toward young moms that are struggling to lose weight after giving birth.

In order for affiliate marketing to be effective, you have to pick a narrower niche

So, how can you find the right niche for your affiliate marketing campaigns? The foolproof formula to pick the right niche for your affiliate business:

  • It needs to be profitable. You don’t want to pick products that will in turn become unprofitable for you. When you spend a lot of marketing effort and budget for the promotion of these products, you may only get a small Return On Investment (ROI). So, picking a profitable niche is important, to ensure that all your hard work will pay off. You have to pick a niche that has potential for making good money, such as weight loss, finance, investment, Lead generation and so on. Consider your ROI carefully.
  • It needs to have sufficient demand. When you pick a niche, you are actually choosing a market where you will promote your product. This market has an audience with its own demographics; personality, age range, income range, and so on. What you need to do is to ensure that your niche market has sufficient demand for your products. Why Do these people desperately need a solution to their problems? This is the question that you need to answer first. A lot of marketers approach this with What problems do these people have that your products can solve or How can their problems be solved. The key is to ask WHY, thus giving them the solution on a plate, rather than bartering around.
  • Look at the keywords. You can research your niche by using the Google Keyword Planner Tool to search for the related keywords in your niche. For instance, if you are interested in the weight loss niche, then you will put the keyword “weight loss” on the Google Keyword Planner Tool, and search for related keywords from there. You will find thousands of related keywords, which you can research again in the same manner. Do this until you find the niche that is narrow enough with good demand and little competition.
  • It should be evergreen. The niche that you pick shouldn’t only be a temporary trend. For instance, if you pick the niche “Halloween costumes”, then you will only be able to promote your products at the time of Halloween. Thus, you cannot make money each and every day from that niche. So pick a niche that is evergreen, a constant.
  • Take a peek at Offer Vault. Offer Vault is the good place to search for the offers you want to promote. Search for the offers in your niche. Offer Vaults’ network directory has almost all affiliate networks, and their offers, along with other important details like payout and earnings per click, listed.  It also has a list of categories to browse, as well as a list of products based on country. This way, you can discover your niche really fast.

You should spend some time researching your niche before you delve further into your affiliate marketing business. Once you’ve decided to pick the right niche for your business, it’s time to determine which products that you want to promote to your audience.

Step #2 – Pick Your Promoted Products The Brilliant Way

There are millions of products that are available online today, and a big percentage of them have  their own affiliate programs or they are working with affiliate networks. When you narrow it down to your chosen niche, there are probably hundreds and thousands of products that are available for you to promote in that niche, depending on how popular your niche is. So, how can you pick the products to promote in your affiliate marketing business? Not all products will have a high conversion rate. So don’t have any prior expectations, if you are a master of your niche, conversation rates shouldn’t be an immediate issue.

In regards to this, there are some important things that you should pay attention to before choosing the products to promote. Always remember that because a product is popular, it doesn’t mean that it will have a high conversion rate. So, you cannot simply pick popular products out there and start promoting them like crazy. Here are some useful tips to pick the right products to promote:

  1. Understand the needs of your audience. Each niche market has its own group of audience that you will target later. This group of audience has their own needs and problems, and they are looking for a solution to fix their problems or fulfill their needs. What you need to do is to understand the needs of your audience, knowing how they think, their fears, and the problems that they are facing right now. Then, pick the products that can help them to solve their problems as easily as possible.
  1. Pick the products with high ratings. Whatever affiliate network that you choose to use, you need to pick the products that have high ratings and positive feedback. You want the products to be highly recommended by real users, so that when you promote it to your audience, they will not be hesitant to buy the products right away. Don’t pick products that have low ratings or no ratings at all.
  1. Pick the products that share a reasonable commission. Promoting these products as an affiliate marketer means you have to spend a lot of time, money, and effort into the promotional campaign. So, you don’t want your hard work to go to waste. You want to promote the products that share a big commission per sale, so that you can get your return on investment as quickly as possible.
  1. Lifetime commission products are the best. If you can find the products that offer lifetime commission for you, it is even better for your long-term investment. This means that the sales that you get today will produce affiliate commissions for you for years to come, for as long as your customers stay as customers. There are quite a lot of affiliate products that offer this commission structure.
  1. High converting sales page. Before going with a product to promote, first you have to read the sales page of the product to determine whether it will convert well or not. Try to read the sales page from start to finish, and if you are compelled to buy the product, then it is positive that the sales page is persuasive enough, and it will convert well for your audience. Go for the products that have the most persuasive sales pages.
  1. Ask Your affiliate manager. Consult with your affiliate manager and get their opinion about the best converting offers in your niche. Affiliate Managers have all kinds of data, so they can be a great source to help you out with selecting offers, offers which are converting on their affiliate networks. If you can build a strong relationship with your affiliate manager, they can also provide you additional material which could be of help. So always make sure you keep a good relationship with your affiliate managers.Note here are a few networks I recommend you to start with : Maxbounty , leadbit.com ,W4.comChoosing the right products for your affiliate promotion will make it easier for you to earn commissions from the products that you promote. Make a list of products to promote on your niche, and prepare to join the affiliate networks that host those products. Read more in our special guide about How to pick up a winner CPA offer.

Step #3 – Finding  Trusted Affiliate Networks That Pay For Your Hard Work

Affiliate networks are basically the companies that host the affiliate products and the ones that will pay the commission for your affiliate sales. So, this is the place where a lot of vendors can list their products, so that affiliate marketers can find those products and begin promoting them. Examples of Traditional Affiliate Networks are Clickbank, Amazon, and ShareASale. Similarly, you can Find CPA Affiliate Networks which basically pay per action. For example; pay for signing up to a website, making people install apps on their phones, etc. You cannot promote products as an affiliate unless you sign up to the relevant affiliate network and become a member.

Pick Affiliate Networks which pay you on time

Pick Affiliate Networks which pay you on time

However, with a lot of affiliate networks available, the bad news is that not all of them are trusted companies that will pay you for your hard work. Sometimes, bad affiliate networks might withhold your payment, or pay you less as compared to other affiliate networks. This is why you should find/work with the best affiliate networks, ones that you can trust. Here are some tips to find the trusted affiliate networks that pay for your hard work:

  • How long have they been about? If you find an affiliate network that seems new to you,  check the company profile online. Has the company been around for some time, or is it a new company? Be wary of doing business with new companies, since you don’t know for sure about their reputation. To make things simple, choose the affiliate networks that have been around for some time, and have some sort of presence. Try looking on affiliate marketing groups on Facebook, If you are not sure about an affiliate network feel free to ask in our Facebook group .
  • They should make the payment on time. The affiliate networks that you pick should have a good payment reputation, in that they don’t miss affiliate payments. They should treat all affiliates well, by giving their payments on time. One of the common traits of untrustworthy affiliate networks is that they will make excuses to delay your affiliate payment, and usually, they will hold your commissions for no reason.
  • They should accept affiliates easily. There are some affiliate networks that are known to accept only experienced affiliates for their network. Usually they will require you to have  a few campaigns running already with other networks and would like you to show them some sort of proof of earnings. These are not the companies that you want to work with, especially if you are still a beginner. Instead of wasting your time on signing up to these networks start with networks where you can be accepted easily and spend your precious time working on your campaigns. I understand the logic that not every tom, dick and harry will excel, so they have to be careful, but it shouldn’t be a chore to join a network.
  • They should have a good commission structure/system. The commission structure offered by the affiliate networks should be fair for both vendors and affiliates, and they should have a good system to track your affiliate sales. There are networks that are known to be cheating their affiliates by eliminating the sales from their affiliates randomly. Be sure to avoid these types of networks. That is why you need to join the networks that are beginner friendly, yet they have a good reputation.
  • They should have positive reviews from affiliates. Before you join any affiliate network that you’ve selected, make sure you read some reviews from the affiliates using that network. Usually, there are many affiliates that discuss certain affiliate networks in online forums, and they usually post their reviews and feedback there. Take a good look at those forums and make sure that you only join the networks with positive reviews from the affiliates. You can also read reviews on affpaying.com or have a look at Kj Rocker’s recommended networks lists.

Now that you’ve picked the right niche, chosen your products, and join the affiliate networks, it’s the time for you to really start the marketing process for those products. For this, you have to build your own affiliate marketing arsenal and prepare your promotional materials there.

Step #4 – The Easy Way To Prepare Your Affiliate Marketing Arsenal

When it comes to affiliate marketing, your only job is to promote the affiliate products to your audience, without forcing them to buy it. So, you simply tell them about the products and why it is a solution to their problems, and then give your affiliate link to your audience so that they can check out the sales page, and gain more insight. Then, when your audience decides to buy the product, you get the affiliate commission for your effort.

Its Important to have the right tools for your affiliate marketing campaigns

The problem here is that there are hundreds and probably thousands of affiliate marketers that are promoting the same products as you. So, you have to compete with them, which is why you need to prepare your affiliate marketing arsenal properly. In this way, you can get ahead of your competition and make more sales in doing so. So, here are some tips to prepare your affiliate marketing arsenal the easy way:

  • Build your own website. You can always create a free blog for your affiliate marketing efforts, but do not do that unless you want to waste your time. The best way to promote your affiliate products is by building your own website, and focus your promotion there. You don’t need to build two or three or even ten free blogs to promote different products. Just one website is enough, and since you’ve picked your niche, you can build your website around that topic and easily attract your audience that way.
  • Host your website on VPS. Shared hosting might be a good solution for the beginners who are running a website with a lower traffic volume. However, when you are running affiliate marketing campaigns as a business, its important to take it as a business and make sure you most out of your campaigns so always start with at least VPS hosting. ( check out discount form our friends at liquid web hosting). Shared hosting servers are being shared by many web masters and that can slow your website or landing page performance, which may result in loss of sales. When we are promoting affiliate marketing campaigns each and every visitor is important and a potential customer. Also if you are running paid traffic you don’t want slow website speed to turn away your potential customers while you are paying for their visit to your website.
  • Build valuable content around your niche. The most important thing that you have to do with your website is content building. You need to develop valuable content for your website, which makes the visitors want to come back to your site for more. The content needs to be able to help solve your audience’s problems and it should be able to entertain them as well. You need to update your website regularly with new content.  Read more about 5 Smart content Marketing Strategies.

Create official social media pages for your website where people can get in touch with you in various social media platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and more. Whenever you update new content on your website, be sure to notify your social media followers about it, and make sure to develop a strong follower base for all of your social media pages.
  • Focus on promoting several products at the same time. While you need to focus on developing your promotional materials on your website, it doesn’t mean that you can only promote one product on it. You can promote several products at the same time on your website. You can even give your audience the product comparison chart in order to make it easier for them to determine which product to buy.

However, you should do it only if the affiliate products are directly relevant to your content.

You have prepared a good affiliate marketing arsenal that is ready to help you convert your visitors into customers, and generate lots of affiliate sales for you. Next, it’s the time for you to find out ways to attract more traffic to your website.

Step #5 – Super Effective Ways To Build Traffic To Your Promotional Materials

Since your website contains the valuable content that your audience will read, and within the content, you will insert the affiliate links to your promoted products, then it can be said that your website contains various promotional materials for your affiliate business. Unless you can drive traffic to your website, you cannot generate any sales from your promotion. Thus, it is important for you not only to focus on developing valuable content for your website, but also to attract traffic to your website as well.

You will need good traffic volume to generate good a good number of leads

You will need good traffic volume to generate good a good number of leads

What you need to know about attracting traffic to your website is that there are generally two ways of doing that. The first way is using the organic search engine traffic, which you can do over time, for free. The second way is using the paid traffic, something you can do instantly as long as you have the budget to run the ad campaigns. The point in attracting traffic is to attract more people to your website, so that they can finally be sent to your affiliate product sales page. Here are some super effective ways to build traffic to your promotional materials:

  1. Provide your content on YouTube. YouTube is one of the biggest traffic websites on the internet today, and lots of people usually prefer watching videos than reading articles. That’s why it is important for you to have a solid presence on YouTube, so that you can build your own audience there. Create your own channel and provide content related to your niche, such as how-to, instructions, guides, tips, reviews, and more. Always link back to your website on each of your videos.
  1. Offer guest posts on related blogs. Find related blogs that are quite popular in your niche, and then ask the bloggers if they accept guest posts or not. If they accept guest posts, write high quality articles for those blogs regularly, and link back to your website home page for each article. Build your own reputation on those blogs, and ensure that people want to read more content from you.
  1. Optimize your content for the search engines. When writing content for your own website, be sure to optimize it for the search engines by adding your target keywords to your content. However, don’t overdo it. You need to sprinkle your keywords throughout your content without making it difficult to read. If possible, include other related keywords as well.
  2. Use a highly optimized web template. Your website template should also be highly optimized for the search engine, since it matters most for you to reach the highest ranking for your target keywords. Make sure that you optimize every element of your web template, including meta tags, meta description, page title, alternate tags, H1 tags, categories, and more.
  3. Get active in various social media platforms. You need to be active on various social media platforms with the goal to build good communication with your audience there. You can respond to their comments, answer their questions, appreciate their feedback, and more. Just be sure to communicate actively with your audience on social media platforms and encourage them to check out your website often.

Those are some super effective ways to attract traffic to your website quickly and easily. Once you’ve followed the tips above, you will be able to attract high quality traffic to your website that is highly converting for your affiliate business. This will all lead to building yourself a brand, making your consumers trust you, which is a very important aspect in the long term.

Step #6 – How To Monitor Your Results Easily And Automatically

At this point,  you’ve probably  started to generate some sales here and there, and you think that your affiliate business is working well. However, the problem is that you don’t know how or what causes the sales to take place. Is it a certain page on your website that makes people want to buy the products immediately? Is it the YouTube videos that make them want  to hit the “Buy Now” button? Or, is it something else? You need to figure out what works for your promotion, and what doesn’t work.

That’s why you have to monitor your results all the time. You want to know the conversion rate that you have from your traffic. You want to know the quality of your traffic, as well as the quality of your website content. Here are some tips that you can follow to monitor your affiliate marketing results easily and automatically:

  • Use a good affiliate tracking software. There are probably hundreds of tracking software that are available online and for free. However, only a few tracking softwares are designed specifically for affiliate marketers. The best way to track your affiliate marketing business is to use a good affiliate tracking software, which is often comes with a price. However, you should consider it as an investment on your part to make your business run smoothly without any problem. I would personally recommend tools like CPVLab.
  • Mask your affiliate links. When you give out your affiliate links to your audience, you should mask your links so that your audience doesn’t know at first sight that you are giving them affiliate links. Mask your links, and use a link tracker software to ensure that you can record the click through rate of your affiliate links easily.
  • Use A/B split testing. Use this A/B split testing to test between two different landing pages or content in your website, and see which one is giving you the best results. This is usually included in any affiliate tracking software, so you just need to use this feature often, until you find the best conversion rate for your promotion.

Now that you’ve monitored all aspects of your affiliate marketing business, you just need to see your conversion rate, and determine which one of your content gives you the best results, and which one needs some improvements.

Step #7 – How To Fine-Tune Your Promotional Materials And Boost Your Conversion Rate 

This is the last step in this guide, and it will perfect your overall affiliate marketing business so that you can completely rely on it as one of your income sources. It’s time for you to fine-tune your promotional materials, fix some mistakes, and boost your conversion rate. The last step requires you to monitor your affiliate marketing business, and it is critical for you to do this step.

Stories can generate great number of conversions

Stories can generate great number of conversions

After some testing of a campaign, you should know about your click through rate, page views, and the conversion rate that you get for your affiliate campaign. At the same time, you should have enough data to find out  about which pages are giving you good results, and which landing pages are giving you no results at all. What you need to do is to keep the pages that are giving you good results, and then improve the pages that give you no results. Here are some tips to do it:

  • First, you have to take a look at the pages that don’t generate any sales for your affiliate campaigns. Read the page again and position yourself as an audience that is interested to learn more about the topic.
  • Next, you need to be able to determine why the page doesn’t convert as well as other pages. Do the headlines not enticing enough?
  • Then, you need to change various parts that may not give any motivation or interest for your audience to click on the affiliate links right away.
  • Then, check the sales page of the product that you promote and see whether it is converting well or not. Most of the time, the problem lies in the product not being high converting due to a poor sales page. So, no matter how good your content, you will not be able to make people buy the product.
  • If that is the case, you should change the product that you promote on your page. You should find a similar product with a better sales page than the previous product.
  • After that, you are ready to monitor the new pages and see whether there is any improvement that you make from the changes.

7 Essential Reasons Why Live Streaming Video Is Good For Your Online Marketing Campaign

What is the difference between regular videos and live streaming video? In regular videos, you record your videos, edit it sufficiently, and then publish it on video sharing websites like YouTube. But, in live streaming videos, you are recording your videos while at the same time publishing your videos for others to see. The question is this: are live streaming videos good for your online marketing campaign? The answer can be yes, it is as you will learn later. Here are 7 essential reasons why live streaming videos are good for your online marketing campaign:

7 essential reasons why live streaming videos are good for your online marketing campaign

7 essential reasons why live streaming videos are good for your online marketing campaign

Building Anticipation.

People can only see your live streaming only at a specific time. So, naturally, you have to inform or announce to your audience first about the live streaming session before you actually start the live stream. This can help to build anticipation about the product on your audience, and it can be a good way to build hype around it.

You Talk Directly To Your Audience.

During the live streaming broadcast, you can always open the comment section so that you can see their comments while you broadcast the live stream. This can be a powerful way to build a good communication with your audience, as well as to make them even more interested in not just your product, but also your personality and your brand as well.

You Can Have Direct Q&A Sessions.

Another benefit of live streaming is the possible live Q&A sessions that you can make during the broadcast. This can be beneficial for your online marketing, since you can answer the questions about your product directly to your audience. They donít need to go to the customer support just to do that, but instead, they can have their answers right away.

You Know What Your Audience Thinks About Your Product.

You donít need to waste a lot of money just to see whether your product will be accepted on the market or not. By doing live streaming for your product promotion, you know what they think about your product immediately, and in so doing, you can improve your product based on their feedback. Nowadays, itís very important for you to know about what your audience thinks about your product, as it will either bring success or failure to your marketing efforts.

Time-Limited Offer.

Since your live broadcast can only be done at a specific time, you might as well use this time to give your audience your time-limited offer. Time-limited offer is the type of offer that will have a higher conversion rate because of its scarcity factor. With the time-limited offer, you can get the most out of your promotion, while at the same time, give your audience the privilege to get the best deal out of your product.

Creating Your Own Community.

Since live streaming broadcast can help to build a good communication with your audience, it can also help you to build a good relationship with them too. With this promotion strategy, you will be able to create your own community, which consists of people who are interested in your product. These people can become your long-term customers later.

Testing The Water Before The Big Launch.

Live streaming videos can be used to introduce or announce your soon-to-be-launched product to your audience before the big launch day. In a sense, it can be used as a means to test the water before the big launch, which will help you to get some insights about the audience, as well as the market, for the product. It helps you to make your big product launch a success.

Those are the reasons why you should include live streaming video in your online marketing campaign. This is an important extension of the regular video marketing, and if you can implement it on your promotion, you will be able to launch even more successful product promotion campaigns later.

5 Incredible Facts That You Need To Know About Content Marketing For Your Business

The importance of content marketing is more apparent today, especially as people are searching for more and more content on the internet. From a business perspective, content marketing can be used as a good way to establish your brand and improve the loyalty of your customers. This is because the more your customers consume your content, the more they will trust your brand. But, there is more. Here are 5 incredible facts that you need to know about content marketing for your business:

Content Marketing

Content Marketing

1. Content Marketing Is Best For Preselling

Compared to other types of marketing, content marketing is the best method to pre-sell your products, which means to give your audience an introduction about your product and attract their interest in it. Itís not a method that is fit for hard selling, just like PPC advertising or any other common marketing strategies. With content marketing, you try to educate and inform your audience about the topics related to the product that you want to promote, and then lead them on to take a look at your product.

2. Big Businesses Use Social Media For Their Content Marketing

Content marketing can be done in various ways, and many big businesses are using content marketing in conjunction with social media marketing. Social media is in fact the best platform for content marketing, since it can spread the word about your content quickly. What big businesses try to seek with social media marketing with content is that they want to make their content go viral on social media, and attract more views and engagement with their audience in this way.

3. Content Marketing Brings Higher Conversion Rate

With content marketing, you donít just tell your audience about your product, but you also educate and inform them about various things related to the product. For instance, if you want to promote a weight loss product, you canít just tell your audience about your product with content marketing. Instead, you give your audience some tips to lose weight, or some essential guides to lose a few pounds a week, before you actually lead your audience toward your product.

4. Companies Use Their Blog As Their Main Content Marketing Channel

For many companies, content marketing is done directly within their official website. Usually, they will create a blog section on their company website to publish regular content for the website. This is where they usually do their content marketing campaign. Usually, before publishing or spreading their content to other channels like social media platforms, they will publish their content first on their website blog.
