There Is No BEST Affiliate Network

By Affiliate Hat On March 17, 2009 9 Comments

When newbies dive into affiliate marketing, the first question they always ask is “What is the best affiliate network to join?”. While it’s understandable for them to ask that question, the truth is their is really no “best” in terms of everything. It varies differently. That’s why most affiliate marketers do their research first, before starting to promote their campaigns. They surf across each and every affiliate network, to find the best and highest paying offer (and the least scrubbing one).

Most people starting out in affiliate marketing tend to think on whether it is worth joining a specific affiliate network or not. While old adage tells us “to focus on one”, the truth is their is really no harm in joining as much affiliate networks as you can. I mean if you can join all of them then why not? After all it doesn’t cost you anything right? I always have a thinking that I myself can utilize something out of them one at a time and maybe sometime in future.

Here in this blog, there is a list of affiliate networks that I recommend. But if you’d like to have a more comprehensive look at each network, then affpinions.com is one of the better ones I’ve seen there.

There it is! This is just a short heads up to everyone especially those who are starting out. There’s really no one who’s remotely ahead of the step. Think, Copeac is good with dating offers, weight loss but lack freebies campaigns. Ads4dough and C2m lacks a better interface and has a few offers but each of them are high paying (and their owners are damn cool!). Pepperjam Network has few lead generation offers but referring someone to them nets you $5 (in my case $8). Hydra boasts email and zip submits but they have some problems with tracking. Market Leverage has a lot of offers that are paying lower than other networks but they are a very generous company. Cpaempire does have a $20 ringtone offer but seemingly no one seems to convert on it.  What else?

To sum it up, it all speaks about you, testing them one at a time and if you find a profitable campaign on a network, there you have it. Your “best” affiliate network. But of course it is bounded by time. :)


Affiliate Marketing With No Startup Cost

By Affiliate Hat On January 24, 2009 24 Comments

So like what I have  mentioned in my last post,  I  will show you the way on how to start affiliate marketing with absolutely no budget except for the food you will eat. so basically the more you invest in affiliate marketing, the higher the income potential can be. But again there are ways which costs you nothing and would probably help you get started. Just remember that in order to get the money you have to invest time since we don’t have the money we have to do what I call sweat work.

Here is how you get started:

Basically you need a site. A site’s domain and hosting normally would cost you $20. Since we don’t have a budget what we would do is sign with Blogger which hosts your site for free. The downside is that you will have to carry the name “blogspot” with your domain name. Now that you have a free blog/site, you can now choose your preferred template for it. Blogger has its own list of its template and I think the designs are professional enough to handle what product we are going to promote.

Now we have to choose what are the products that we are going to be promoting. In choosing this, I highly suggest you to stay away from the Internet Marketing Niche as I think its the hardest one to convert. Let’s say we pick Teeth Whiteners. Next is we have to choose the affiliate program to use. An affiliate network is basically the middleman between the merchant and us, the affiliate. I don’t really care what you would like to choose but personally for me Copeac, Pepperjam, and Azoogle do well. You may want to take good advantage with Pepperjam’s $10 signup bonus as I believe its a great deal for newbies.

Now we have a network that we will use to promote a certain product. The next part now is the content base. Review sites do well in this one and besides Google very much loves review site for its quality. What I would do is pick 2 different product in my niche and do a complete review of them. Just try to be transparent as possible and don’t just review it for the sake of hoping to get a sale. Try to put the things that you don’t want and like then insert your affiliate link into that. After doing the review, reread and then you can publish them now.

How are we going to promote? Simple, Article Marketing! Article Marketing is all about writing articles related to your niche and submitting it to high trafficked article directories. The directories are ezinearticles, go articles and etc. I have made a full list of  all article directories here. Why is article marketina  good way to promote sites? If you look at the list, you can see most of them have less than 100,000 Alexa ranking and almost over PR5 per each directory. It means the directories are well indexed by search engines and they have tons of traffic as well.

Now we’re gonna write an article anew right? Here’s the thing, you don’t really need a quality article to be posted. Remember we try to put our site as much as we can and we also try to build links and SERPS, so quantity is greater than quality. What I would do is search each directory for an article of the same topic. Try to get 10-20. After finding, you should REWRITE those articles in your own words/style and then submit it again. Yes, as long as its unique we’re gonna be alright. Remember we want a large volume of articles. Most people spend an hour thinking of an idea and another half an hour writing their article. If you’re quick and focused enough you can actually do 10-15 a day which means 70-100 a week.

How do those articles can lead people to our site? Simple, in every article there is an author box where you can put anything you want except for the affiliate link itself. So what we would do is put a link bait statement in that box that would eventually make a reader interested in visiting our review site. Besides clickthroughs, those link would also build our search engine rankings.

Back to our blogger site, we can just rinse and repeat what we did their. We can also submit our unique content to all social media directories to add exposure. This way we can have our site getting benefit three ways. First is the direct traffic. Basically because we have submitted a ton of articles in article directories, expect to get a ton in return. Second is the search engine benefits. This is also called Organic Traffic. Because we’ve built a lot of links facing our site we can easily get listed in major search engines for key terms. Third is improvement. The first few weeks/months is for testing and optimizing. You can always look in your Google Analytics to see what are the things to improve. Hopefully in the future I can make more advanced posts and more killer techniques so that it can help you out

That’s it. It’s a ton of work but as you progress more, you’re hardwork will eventually pay off with paychecks from affiliate companies. With my experience with this, it took me about 2 weeks before generating a sale. Of course, you can either do in shorter or longer period of time. It depends on your determination and other skills.   You can ask questions in the comments section if you have some clarifications.
