What is affiliate marketing? Can I really earn an extra income from home by being an affiliate marketer? Affiliate marketing in a nutshell is where a company will pay a commission on any sales or registrations that are generated from another company or individual promoting their products for them. Clickbank is the king of affiliate marketing, in my opinion and many other successful affiliate marketers out there would state the same! Up to a whopping 75% commission is paid out to affiliates who successfully generate a successful sale of a vendors product. Products can be up too $100 so in essence you can make up to $75.00 dollars for the sale of a product that costs $100. Can you see the potential here to make some big money? So too answer the question can I earn extra income at home affiliate marketing? My answer is a resounding yes! You just need some tips on how to be successful at it, and your guaranteed to start raking in the affiliate commissions in no time!
What works in generating an extra income at home affiliate marketing? 5 main things come to mind classifieds, articles or hubs, forums, viral marketing or videos such as you tube etc..., and your own affiliate website! Lets start off by talking about articles or hubs, whats so good about them? First off when you write an article or a hub too promote an affiliate product, your hub or article will have a great advantage right out off the gates. What's that advantage? I'm glad you asked its a high page rank Ezinearticles.com and Hubpages have a high page rank of 6 or 7 on a scale of 1-10 so you will essentially rank very high for your keywords in your article or hub! The title of your hub will rank very well when optimized correctly for the keyword phrase you are going after! Lets put this into simple terms, if you have a website with a page rank of 0 or 1 with the exact same content as your article or hub. Your article of hub will be indexed higher each and every time just because of the simple fact that it has a higher pr or page rank. Ezinearticles.com or Hubpages, is simply seen as way more important than your website because they are. They have millions of users and have been rewarded from the big players in the search engines Google, Yahoo, and MSN. Take advantage of this by writing quality articles, and you will be rewarded for your efforts by a lot of free quality traffic! Not to mention articles don't expire like classifieds do, so they will be out in cyberspace potentially making you great affiliate marketing commissions for years to come! I can't stress this enough take advantage of article writing. Tip for Hubpages - which is by far my personal favorite! They give you an option to set up an Adsense account with Google. which puts related paid links on each of your hubs, when someone clicks on those ads you get paid. Another great residual income stream to earn extra income at home, take advantage of it!
Classifieds - my personal favorite classified which I pay for $9.99 a month is U.S freeads I have a premium membership with them for a reason, why? I makes 20 times that plus just by writing classifieds through U.Sfreeads! Your classifieds don't expire like they would on Craigslist, Kijiji, etc... and they can't be marked as spam, and you can write as many as you want its unlimited. Another benefit I like about them is the ads you can make are really sharp, they look like little mini websites! Not as boring looking as Craigslist, you can really make them standout. Google also loves U.S free ads and they have a high page rank, so your ads rank really well so I would recommend anyone starting out to take advantage of U.Sfreeads features. Trust me from experience its a small investment, for the big return you can get from it! You can sign up through my link on my learn affiliate marketing page, at jaysonlinereviews.com. Craigslist is also a pretty good one - due to the millions of people using there classified site on a daily basis. But the one downfall, is they don't allow you to put Clickbank ads on the classifieds that you make. So you have to link your affiliate ads to a hub, website, etc... basically redirect your classifieds to wherever your affiliate links are so you can potentially make a sale. Another negative I have learned to get around for the most part on Craigslist is it seems everyone on there has nothing better to do than flag your hubs as spam. Which can be very annoying at times Craigslist Tip: Just make sure you get your point across in your ads quickly! Don't make them to long or spammy, and make sure to put them in the correct category I use the books/magazines category for my Clickbank ads a lot and link them to my website, or hub... This has cut out most of my classified ads as being flagged as spam!
Forums - This will be quick and to the point. Forums are good for a couple of reasons. Reason number 1. You can put your affiliate ads in your signature at the bottom of each and every post you make in a forum. Once you set them up once they will automatically show up in all your affiliate posts! So choose your affiliate ads wisely. Affiliate tip for forums to generate an extra income affiliate marketing! Choose the title of your posts wisely, as these will be indexed by the search engines. My advice to any newbie affiliate marketer out there, who is clueless in how to get affiliate traffic from a forum is research keywords for your title in your posts. Remember the lower the competition for those keywords the better. Look up jaysonlinereviews.com and go to my learn affiliate marketing page, and you will find there I discuss bum marketing. Apply the bum marketing technique to every affiliate post you make in the forums! This will get you even more traffic.... trust me it works! My favorite forums are Websitebabble, Webproworld, and Warrior Forum. Le's move on to our next topic on how to earn extra income at home affiliate marketing!
Video Marketing - Or Viral Marketing - Let's face it video marketing is exploding! Everyone these days pretty much uses Youtube, Metcafe, and the other video sites out there! Google owns Youtube so you know the videos you make will rank very well in the search engines! So if you have a camera or camcorder handy I would recommend you make a video... Tons of potential views, which in turn can be tons of extra affiliate commissions in your pocket. Affiliate tip: You can link your website, hub, classified, or article to your channel page - which shows up next to every video you made on Youtube this can be another free great source of traffic for you the commission hungry affiliate wink. So if you have time, make a couple videos on Youtube. These days if your serious about one day earning an extra income at home affiliate marketing, video marketing cannot be ignored its too damn powerful!!!!!
Start Your Own Affiliate Website - On anything that interests you! You can get a website for a whole year for 40-80 bucks depending on what package you go with. I personally do a review website that is always a work in progress called jaysonlinereviews.com on my homepage I have a review of some webhosts. Who's good? who's not? and so forth.... But at some point I would recommend all affiliates who are serious about earning not just some extra income but the big money some day, to invest in there own website. One affiliate commission through Clickbank, can pretty much take care of all your hosting fees for the whole year! But if you want to play with the big boys in the affiliate marketing game, your gonna eventually need a website! Website tip: pick a niche to have your website revolve around, maybe find a Clickbank niche that interests you. Make your website around that Clickbank niche! Remember in this industry think the eye of the tiger the theme song from Rocky.... When you get knocked down and you hit a few bumps in the road, in your affiliate marketing journey. Get back up and wipe yourself off and keep on swinging! This is what separates the winners from the losers. You'll eventually get that knockout punch, you so desperately were trying for!
