Affiliate Marketing Tips: The ONE Tool That Increase Conversion Multiple Folds

There are a lot of affiliate marketing tips in the Internet today and there are some of them which are really good. If you are just starting out doing affiliate marketing, you would want to implement everything at the same time. 

Now, here's the difference of what you can do, and what you will do.

Allow me to ask you something. You are interested in affiliate marketing because:

  • You are a student and need the extra cash
  • You have a day job and earning side income is always great
  • You trying to build streams of residual income on the side

Either way, I get it. I was and still in the same shoes.

I have a day job and affiliate marketing allows me to earn extra income monthly, without much hard work and more importantly, more money to put food on the table.

You are confused with affiliate marketing.

Confused About Affiliate Marketing

With so much information about affiliate marketing tips in the market space, you are desperate to know what works and more importantly, what doesn't — right?

I bet it not because I guess so, it is because I know so!

Now, what if I tell you that there is one simple affiliate marketing tip you can follow, that will increases your affiliate sales multiple folds?

The answer is this ... (carry on reading).

ARTICLE LAYOUT.

No, I'm not talking about blog layout — I'm talking about the article layout. This means the way you make your article portray the information to the public.

Here's an important tip: No one loves wall of text.

Typically, most blog layouts look like this.

Typical Blog Layout

If I could describe this in just one word, it would be B.O.R.I.N.G.

You see, most affiliate marketers opt for the layout above and there is no wrong to it. What makes your conversion is the CONTENT part.

We spend so much time trying to create the best ads and banners on the sidebar that we totally forget that the conversion power lies within the content.

And of course, this leads to another question.

How to use content and increase affiliate sales?

The answer is simple. Make it interactive.

According to the BusinessDictonary.com, the word "interactive" can be inteprated as "Live presentation in which the audience can participate."

How do you make your blog post interactive without voice?

Hah! Now, you are talking.

The trick here is simple. Using visual editor and turn wall of text into something fun.

Here's my meaning of fun:

How Do I Start An Affiliate Marketing Business?

Affiliate marketing business is one of the most popular work from home opportunities in the world. By now, you would have probably heard how bloggers around the world are making hundreds if not thousands of dollars through affiliate marketing.

I'm sure the thought of passive income got you fired up already, right?

In this post, you will find simple steps to start an affiliate marketing business from scratch and with no experience required.

how do I start an affiliate marketing business from scratch

1. Choose a niche or topic

This is the most crucial part of starting an affiliate marketing business. Everyone can start an affiliate marketing business but not everyone can be successful in it.

More importantly, not everyone will make a lot of money from affiliate marketing.

Choosing is not only purely importantly, it is going to affect your success in this highly competitive industry.

When it comes to choosing a niche, always go for topics that:

The reason behind this?

Choosing a topic that you are not interested in is just a pure disaster. You will lose the steam after first 10 or maybe, 20 posts later. However, when you talk about topics that you are interested in, that's a whole different story!

 

2. Choose a social media platform

I know. Most coaches out there don't tell you to choose a social media platform as the second step but for me, this another important factor for your success.

It doesn't matter if you are going for Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat or Instagram. Just choose one that you are most comfortable with and move on.

There is absolutely no right and wrong, or better social media platforms. Seriously.

 

3. Start a blog (even if you hate writing)

No, I'm not kidding. I know many of you who want to start affiliate marketing is either having a day job, work from home or even a student. So, the reasons could either be one (or all) of them:

Now, the only way to succeed in affiliate marketing is to start a blog and there is absolutely no two-way around this.

4. Sign up for affiliate program(s)

Affiliate programs are literally third-party channels that allow you to connect with big brands. Typically, you need to sign up for a membership (usually free) and apply to become an affiliate marketer for the specific company.

Now, this may sound complicated but do not worry about that. The registration often takes less than two minutes to complete and you should be an approved member within a day or so.

 

5. Start publishing blog posts

Publishing blog posts are the fastest way to get eyeballs and sales rolling in. The content does not need to be 3,000 words long (even though it is recommended) but anywhere from 300 is the bare minimum.

Not sure what to write? Consider these:

 

6. Do a video about it

Do you remember about choosing a social media platform? This is where it comes into play.

Doing a quick video is going to help you achieve better ranking on search engines and more importantly, it is going to drive more traffic back to your website.

Blog posts that have videos in them often rank better than others, and this is extremely important especially in affiliate marketing.
