You gotta love blogs! I’m not going to consume your time telling you all the dandy things about blogs or why they’re beneficial or why you require one. All you need to recognize is that you need one if you want to stand any chance of attaining income with affiliate marketing.
Blog It Ping It
These days, everybody has a blog. So, if you’ve been hiding out under that rock again and don’t have yourself a blog so far, you had better get going over to wordpress.com or blogger.com and get yourself a free blog.
But before you thrust up just any old generic blog, consider your purpose for it. Is it to market you? Is it to market a certain product? Is it to provide info on one certain niche topic? Is it going to be a news blog? A review blog? Pick your purpose 1st, then go and produce a blog. The idea comes 1st, then the blog. The riskiest thing you can do is hold a non-focused blog and barf up content in between all kinds of ads and banners and blinking lights. Visitors will be out of there fast.
So, you’ve got your tightly targeted blog……now what? This is where the merriment starts! Once you’ve selected your blog’s theme, the 1st thing you want is beneficial relevant material for your blog.
Remember those articles you composed and submitted to article directories? Place them on your blog. After that, you likely have a bunch of PLR articles on your computers also. PLR articles are a beneficial beginning point as you should re-script them as best you are able to before posting them. The search engines will reward you for unique material.
The chief thing is to add beneficial related content. Then you can add your affiliate links throughout the material. Stick in your affiliate links by hyper-linking some powerful key words as your anchor text. As the visitor scans and likes what he/she is reading, they’ll naturally click on your links to recommended products/offers, etc.
Use some words of your choice that become a clickable link. So rather than a raw link, words will be clickable. Don’t stress too much about this as with the free Blogger and WordPress blogs, you can easily stick in hyperlinks in the material with a few clicks on the mouse with their rich content editors.
You might also want to add banner ads to your blog. Banner ads are just hyperlinked images. So when your visitor clicks on the image, they’re sent on automatically to the page that image links to, your affiliate offer!
The best place to add your banners is higher up. That is, the very top first part of your blog your visitor will see when they come to your web site. The top is your “Income space”! More individuals will see the top fold than any other place on your page.
Update your blog with new content regularly and ping it! In brief, “pinging” is a way to tell other sites that your blog has been updated with new material. You should try to update your blog with new content at least weekly. The search engines love blogs with fresh material. After you update it, ping it!
You can use free multiple ping services pingoat.com to send pings
Next is to submit your blogs fresh material to content sharing/voting sites. The biggest one would have to be propeller.com. You can submit news to but just make sure your material is quality or they won’t admit it.
A different way to market your blog is to join and take part in blogging communities like mybloglog.com. Posting beneficial material on your blog, pinging it and joining blog communities are just a few ways to get traffic to your blog.
Ok, utilizing e-mail marketing to market your affiliate links goes without saying. E-mail goes way back and is still the most beneficial way to promote any direct marketing offer, even though it’s getting harder to pull off successfully.
Before we even look at writing emails, it’s super important that you do something with your “raw” affiliate links. Raw affiliate links look atrocious in e-mails resulting in poor click-through rates. Long affiliate links may also be broken up when wrapped in the e-mail body. And, raw affiliate links can be hijacked to make you lose out on commissions. You don’t want any of these things moving in the way of your readers clicking on your link. Considering you don’t have a site of your own, there are a lot of free online url abbreviating services. A free, simple and quick one to use is tinyurl.com.
OK, now the 1st thing with authoring promo e-mails is the subject line. This will make or break your e-mail crusade. The opening move is to get the reader to open the e-mail, and that’s done with a thrilling subject line. This is essential to a successful e-mail crusade. If you can seize your prospect’s attention by the “you-know-what” and get them to open your e-mail, you’ve got your foot in the door. It has to strike them like nothing else…virtually. Your subject line has to be better than the other’s in your prospects inbox for that day.
The most beneficial way it to tell your offer in your subject line the way it is. Don’t try to pull a fast one on individuals. We aren’t slow….right? After you have your friendly personal subject line in place, it’s time to write your e-mail body.
You should utilize the prospects first name in the greeting, and then begin to introduce your offer. One golden rule of direct marketing is this. The prospect only thinks “What’s in it for me?” That means you need to list advantages, benefits, advantages and more benefits in your e-mail. Also, make certain to utilize the word “you” throughout your email. Using “I” sparingly gives the reader a sense of personal touch and humanness to the e-mail instead of sounding like a robot wrote it.
You should end the e-mail with a firm call to action, i.e. “Go and download this now and see an increase of ABC immediately!”, and add your affiliate link underneath.
Writing compelling e-mail copy is an art. It takes practice and beneficial e-mail copy will help your affiliate marketing efforts many times over poor email junky copy.
So where do you get a list of prospects to e-mail? You’ve probably heard a million-fold “the money is in the list”. It’s true, list owners can pretty much make income on tap when they mail out an offer to their list. The lucky thing for you if you don’t have a list of your own, is that you are able to borrow one!
What I’m discussing here is buying e-mail advertising. You can do a search for “ezine advertising” in Google and consider a few. With these services, you can send to a few thousand “make money” interested readers with your offer. They can be expensive so you had better establish sure your offer is going to convert and make you earnings.
The other option is to acquire a list of your own for free. There are a number of free downline/list building sites out there for “internet marketers” that are free to join and utilize. You don’t need a site, as you use their site to build your list.Other Details
