Affiliate Marketing to the Max workshopAffiliate marketing sounds like it’s not for you, right? Well, you probably don’t consider yourself an “affiliate marketer,” but, I’d like to show you how you, too, can make a nice second income using affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is also about growing your own business: selling more real estate, or more life insurance, or getting more clients, etc.

As always, in 3 hours’ time I will spill the beans to you and give you all my secrets on how I make $1,000s every month with very little to no effort.

I know, you’ve heard these kinds of claims before, but I will show you real evidence, of how much money I make, and how you, too, can start making some serious “beach money,” too.

Have you heard of the guy who wrote the book called “The 4-hour Work Week”?

Well, I am on my way of achieving that goal, and I want to take you along for the ride.

Are you game?

In this video Eric Laffoley of Creative Discovery, shares a testimonial:

I came to this seminar with very little information on social networking — I thought it was something very confusing, and I’ve really have been avoiding it!

After completing the seminar, I understand the concept, I understand the value, and we’ll definitely move in this direction as far as expanding my business, expanding my client base, and ultimately, expanding the level of business I am going to do this year.

Do you write articles? Do you post them to your own blog sites and to article directories? If you answered ‘no’ to any of these questions, all I can say is Do it now!

Nowadays, the importance of having your own articles is huge. As a small business owner or solopreneur, to publish your own articles is going to be one of a handful of sure-fire ways to promote your business, today, tomorrow and for years to come – on auto-pilot.

Your own articles will create links to your web site, boost your search engine ranking, which in turn builds traffic of highly-targeted visitors to your site, who sign up for your ezine, and then, down the road, when they get to know, like and trust you, become your clients or customers. Do you see where I am going with this?

Although the main reason you would write an article is to give away useful information to your audience, your own primary interest is to use articles as a vehicle to promote yourself. Therefore, online articles have a somewhat different structure and requirements than articles written for magazines or other printed media.

Ideally you will write the articles yourself, so that each article will have your authentic voice; or you can have them written by a hired copywriter – either way, there are certain elements that must be present in the articles to make them successful marketing pieces.

1. Keywords, Keyword Phrases and Keyword Density

TypewriterMillions use the Internet daily to find information. They will find your article if you use relevant keywords in your copy. For example, if you are a wine maker, write articles about wine: how to select wine, how to make it yourself, or how to pick a good winemaker, how to store it, etc. If you are a computer safety expert, you will write about protecting your PC, how to pick the right tools, how to practice safe web surfing, etc.

Once you find the right keywords and keyword phrases, use them throughout the article, and also use related keywords and phrases. This will give the article sufficient keyword density. Please note that search engines, as well as people, may ignore your article if its keyword density is too high, in other words, if you keep repeating a keyword just for the sake of building density (this is called keyword spamming). A balance is what’s needed here, and with some practice you’ll get it right.

There are many on line tools that can help in finding the right keywords and phrases related to your area of expertise. Find the right keywords and half of your work will be done.

  • Google Suggest
    You start typing a keyword, Google will suggest other words to complete a keyword phrase, based on its database of searches people used in the past.
  • WordTracker
    This subscription service is probably the best commercially available tool out there. For serious publishers, web masters, and SEO specialists.
  • GoodKeywords.com
    Free downloadable software for Windows that lets you research keywords.

2. Quality Content

Always keep in mind that you’re writing for the human audience first, search engine robots and spiders second. Don’t just throw a bunch of keywords plus some filler copy together and call it an article! You need to write in such a way that your audience will be educated, and hopefully entertained. Write in a conversational manner, but be professional – think “business casual” in written form.

Your written piece is not a thesis, so don’t write long sentences and paragraphs. Convoluted sentence structure or obscure words don’t make for a good read. You don’t write to impress your peers (or competition), but to provide information to your target audience.

Do I need to say you must use correct spelling and good grammar? If you want people to regard you as an authority in your field, your writing style should reflect that authority.

A quality article will boost your expert status. With expert status comes trust, and the more people trust you, the more likely they will be to hire you or buy your products.

3. Links in Articles

Finally, one last crucial component of your article are links. As part of your general SEO strategy, you can create links to your own web site or blog, especially if you’re planning on posting the same article to article directories. These incoming links contribute to your site’s page ranking with search engines.

Depending on where you post your article – on your site only, or to article directories – your latitude in creating links will vary. Let me explain.

Some article directories limit the number and/or type of links you can use. For example, you may not be permitted to link to other web sites using your affiliate link, but it may be OK to link to the same site, indirectly, via your own custom domain name.

Let’s say you are an e-commerce consultant and you offer shopping cart solutions. You could sign up with KickStartCart as an affiliate, and then register a domain such as MyOnlineCart.com, and set up a redirect to KickStartCart using your affiliate link.

At the very least, article directories will allow you to place links in your “resource box,” or signature, which is usually a single paragraph that goes at the end of your article, where you can freely advertise your business. Here’s a good example of a resource box:

Urszula Szychowska publishes the free Health in Layman’s Terms monthly ezine to help you stay youthful, healthy, vibrant and active for the rest of your life – naturally. Sign up today and receive a free special report “Glutathione – Essential Antioxidant, Immune Booster and Detoxifier.” More info at ImmuneSource.ca

If you are posting the article to your own site, or broadcasting it via your ezine, you have complete freedom in hyper-linking.

A very important note: search engines prefer links that contain keywords (I think people do, too). For example, this link to a world-class hosting company with a local touch is better than saying: If you need world-class hosting company with a local touch, click here. BTW, this technique applies to any web page, not just your articles.

Conclusion

We are all hungry for information, and the Internet is where we find it. You are there to provide it in the form of articles and blog posts. Start blogging today!
