HOW TO MAKE MONEY BLOGGING

HOW TO MAKE MONEY BLOGGING

Making money through blogging requires a carefully thought out topic. If you have an existing blog with a small audience, be honest when considering whether the topic has broad appeal that isn’t already covered by other established bloggers. If it does, great! Otherwise, there’s nothing wrong with starting a second blog that will be more successful in attracting an audience, marketing itself, and making money through a variety of methods described below.

STEP ONE – FINDING YOUR INSPIRATION

  1. Write down every topic that you are knowledgeable or passionate about.

You’ll have a much easier time making money from a blog you are interested in, rather than trying to write content you don’t like because you think it will make money. Some examples are hobbies that you enjoy, your career, or some specific and miscellaneous knowledge that you have.

  • Some of the most financially successful blogs provide news on a specific topic or targeted to a particular demographic. Mashable, a blog focused primarily on social media news, was founded by a teenager in 2005 and now attracts millions of dollars in investment funding.
  • Many blogs post funny videos and images around a certain topic. Fail Blog is a famous example, posting examples of mishaps, misspellings, and other “stupid” actions. It makes its money primarily through advertising, and now sells a highly successful book as well.
  • Some blogs are focused on getting paid to provide links to news articles, company stores, or other third party websites. The most financially successful of these range from the Drudge, a blog composed almost entirely of conservative-leaning news links, to Smashing Magazine, a site that provides advice and product reviews to help software developers. Additional common topics covered by the most valuable blogs include business (Business Insider), sports (SBNation), celebrity gossip (Perez Hilton), and music (Pitchfork).
  1. Narrow down the topics by reflecting on profitability and other goals

In order to make money, you’ll need to find a niche that other people haven’t filled already, but is still popular enough to attract a significant number of visitors. Also consider other factors, such as money you’d have to spend if your blog focused on reviewing products that you in turn would have to buy.

  • Choose a specific niche, not a broad topic. Write about training for marathons, not general fitness. Write about making glass jewelry, not arts and crafts.
  • If you want to be famous or reach a wide audience, you will have to choose something slightly broader and work hard to make the best content for that topic. A subtopic relating to fitness, finance, or relationship advice is likely to reach the most people. Consider specific but broadly applicable topics such as managing money in college, or a marriage counseling blog.
  1. Search for blogs that cover similar topics

Use a search engine and the search bar on blog hosting sites to find blogs that cover your topic or related topic. Read a few blog posts from the most popular ones, that show up high on the search ranking, have the most comments, or display a readership of 20,000 or more. Get an idea for how much interest and competition there is.

  • If you can’t find any popular blogs related to your topic, you probably went too niche. People interested in a topic will often visit several related blogs, and each blogger can link to the other to direct more traffic to each site.
  • If you find a popular blog that exactly covers your topic, be aware that it will be difficult to compete with them. Try to tweak your topic to a slightly different but related subject, so you complement the popular blogs instead of trying to overtake them.
  1. Test how knowledgeable you are about the topic

If you’re not sure you have enough to write about, try writing as many article headlines as you can before you create your blog. If you can’t think of at least thirty that fit your topic, you should choose something else that you know more about.

STEP TWO – DECIDING ON A BLOGGING PLATFORM

1. Consider a free blogging service

Many people opt to create a free blog using popular services such as WordPress.com or Google Blogger. This is a good option for people who aren’t familiar with web design, don’t want to pay for their own hosting, or enjoy the ease and stability that comes with these services. These services do have limitations on how you can make money using them, however, so make sure your blog won’t break the terms of service.

  • WordPress.com supports limited advertising, PayPal links, and limited affiliate links. The website will not host blogs that contain third party ad services, banner ads, sites primarily used for affiliate links, or any advertisements for get rich quick schemes, gambling, pornography, multi-level marketing, or “disreputable merchants”.
  • Google Blogger supports advertising through Google AdSense, PayPal links, and limited affiliate links. If you use excessive affiliate links, fail to add relevant content when including affiliate links, or get paid to increase someone’s search engine ranking, Google will move your blog much lower in the search rankings, greatly decreasing your audience traffic.
  • If you are not familiar with these terms, they are described under Monetizing Your Blog.
  1. Consider hosting your own blog

If you purchase your own domain name, you will need to pay a hosting service monthly or annual fees to keep your website available. The advantage is greater customization, greater control over how to monetize your blog, and direct access to information on blog traffic for analysis.

  • If you aren’t familiar with web design, you should have a knowledgeable friend assist you. Self hosted blogs are more easily affected by hackers or by mistakes from inexperienced owners.
  • Choose an easy-to-remember domain name, and use (yourname).com when possible if you are an author or other public figure.
  • Confusingly, WordPress.org allows you to use WordPress software on your own, self-hosted blog. This is a good choice if you are familiar with WordPress.com, a free blog hosting service described above, but want the advantages of your own site.

STEP THREE – CREATING COMPELLING CONTENT

  1. Create and customize your blog

If you are using a free service, there should be a tutorial to guide you through the initial steps of setting up your blog, as well as a forum for people to ask questions. If you are hosting your own site, you will need someone with web design experience to customize your blog, or you can use software such as WordPress.org to use the same structures available at free services.

  • Most of these blog hosting services come with paid upgrades that allow greater customization and other benefits.
  1. Write original content. Come up with your own topics for each blog post, and write the post yourself instead of tweaking or copy-pasting someone else’s work. Readers will come to your blog if they enjoy your writing style and your choice of topic, not to read rehashed content they can easily find elsewhere.
  • You can gain readers by posting content that wasn’t previously available online, such as scans of obscure or pre-20th century books and artwork. You should still add your own commentary around this content, however.
  1. Update frequently

None of the techniques for Monetizing Your Blog will matter if you let your blog stagnate. Try to post at least once a week, on a subject you haven’t covered before that fits your blog’s main topic.

STEP FOUR – MARKETING YOUR BLOG

  1. Brainstorm keywords for each blog post

Keywords are the important words that relate to the topic of your blog, and specifically the new subtopic you cover each time you post. Choosing relevant keywords that people search for frequently will increase the visibility of your blog, attract more readers, and show them advertisements they are likely to click.

  • You can use the Google Keyword Research tool to get an estimate on how much Google is being paid for keywords by advertisers.
  1. Include keywords in important places

Include them in your blog post title, the large “headers” introducing a new section, the first few sentences of your post, and in links. Change your settings so each blog post’s URL includes the title of the post, not the date it was posted. Try to make these as descriptive as possible to raise your ranking in search results and attract the right audience.

  • Words displayed in images do not count as keywords.
  • If your blog software has a “tagging” function to add keywords to each post, use this as frequently and as accurately as possible.
  • If you are posting your blog using HTML instead of through blog software that does it for you, pay special attention to the <title> tag.
  1. Post your article links on social media and blog directories

Get traffic to your site with frequent updates on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites. Find blogging communities that match your readership and post links to relevant articles on their comments or forums. This helps in getting traffic to your site as well as raising your search engine rankings.

  1. Follow related blogs and ask other bloggers about crosslinking

Contact other bloggers on social media and blogging sites, and help advertise each other’s articles when the subject overlaps with both your audiences. Many bloggers are happy to post a link on twitter even if they aren’t interested in advertising your blog on their own.

  • If you are using a free hosting service, excessive crosslinking may be punished. Only link to other blog posts occasionally, when they are relevant to your audience. More general links should be shared with your fans through social media instead of your blog.
  1. Market your blog through paid advertisements if necessary

If you are serious about investing time and money into gaining an audience, you can create your own advertisements for Facebook, pay to add your blog to StumbleUpon, or become an advertiser on Google AdSense or another ad service.

  1. Try to go viral

This is never easy or guaranteed, but it can also be fun to try even if you fail. if you manage to promote your blog through a video or image exciting or funny enough for people to share, and you’re lucky enough to stand above the crowd of people trying to do the same thing, you’ll have a huge influx of readers.

  • Create something within your budget. Unless you’re running a company blog, you’re unlikely to be able to get a crowd of extras or expensive equipment. Brainstorm silly ideas that can be performed by you and your friends.

STEP FIVE – MONETIZING YOUR BLOG

  1. Market your blog first

These techniques for making money are not useful for a blog that doesn’t yet have an audience. Read about Marketing and Advertising first, even if you don’t plan on including ads. At minimum, you should be posting links to your blog on social media website to attract readership.

  1. Use a contextual ad service

Once your blog contains high quality content and has begun to attract an audience, you can make money using Google Adsense, WordAds, or any other contextual ad service. These automatically generate ads in the amount, size, and placement you specify, matching the ads chosen to the topics you write about. The more readers who click on the ads shown on your site, the more money the advertisers will pay you.

  • Be aware that many blog hosting services only allow their proprietary contextual ad service, and may shut down your blog if you use one not made by the host company. If you are hosting your own blog, you should research contextual ad services and choose one that shows appropriate ads. Some allow pornography or other ads that may not be suitable for your blog.
  • Keywords are especially important when using third party ad services, since the ads are chosen based on the keywords you use. Inaccurate or insufficient keywords will result in ads that don’t match your readers’ interests.
  • If you are facing any issue in google adsense approval then you can try Media.net, BuySellAds, BlogAds, Chitika, Infolinks etc. some Google Adsense alternatives to make money from your blog.
  1. Create an online store if appropriate

If you are an arts and crafts blogger, create a shop through etsy or another service for selling your artwork. If you are a writer or illustrator, search for a website that will sell T-shirts with your slogans or drawings on them. Many blog topics are not easily tied to products. You don’t need to sell anything to make money, but if it fits your blog, do it.

  1. Allow readers to purchase your own products or donate to your cause through your blog

If you have an online store for selling arts and crafts, or you create T-shirt designs available through a clothing website, provide links to those sites. Including a PayPal button for quick, safe purchases or donations is a common way to monetize creative blogs, or blogs that provide free advice or assistance to those who can’t afford it.

  • See How to Add PayPal to Blog for specific instructions.
  • WordPress will only work with specific PayPal button settings. Do not choose any customization options besides, optionally, a custom image. Use your primary email address, not your secure merchant ID if you have one. Finally, copy paste the code under the email tab, not the website tab.
  1. Consider affiliate programs

By finding an affiliate program suitable for your blog, you agree to provide links to a company’s products, and in return are paid for each reader who makes a purchase after following your link. You can find specific companies by searching an affiliate directory such as ClickBank, or by searching individual company websites for affiliate programs. Consider these factors before you choose an affiliate program:

  • If you are using a free blog hosting service instead of your own domain name, you must provide high quality content with a limited number of relevant links or risk being shut down. If you are only interested in writing short, quick product reviews in order to earn money, you will need to host your own blog. Be warned that low-content, high-link blogs are a less reliable, though lower effort, way to earn money.
  • Understand whether your affiliate program rewards the person who posts the first link, or the last. If you are paid only for being the last link clicked before a purchase, then you should not link to intermediate pages such as another blogger’s review.
  1. Choose affiliate products your readers will buy

This seems obvious, but it bears thinking about. If you write a cooking blog, recommend home kitchen tools, not expensive equipment for professional chefs. Consider what someone who is a fan of your topic would purchase, not just what active practitioners will.

  1. Let your readers know that you are an affiliate

In the United States and some other countries, you are required by law to reveal to your readers that you receive material benefits from the manufacturer of the product. This includes affiliate link payments as well as gifts and cash offered in return for a review.

  1. Be honest and content rich when linking to affiliates

Write your own content and recommend products that you have actually used and enjoyed. Give honest reviews, faults included, as though you were recommending the product to a friend. If you truly don’t like a product, don’t mention it or link to it.

  • Including links to the product within images or text in the middle of your blog post is a great way to get people to notice the link.
  • If you are using Google Blogger, know their policies or risk becoming invisible on their search engines. Any tag containing an affiliate link should include instructions that stop your referral from boosting the ad buyer’s search engine visibility.

    HOW TO START SELLING ON EBAY​

HOW TO START SELLING ON EBAY

Do you need money to pay off your debt, support your family and live your dream lifestyle? Or peradventure, you need money to celebrate this upcoming Christmas? If that is the case, this is what you must do. Start selling on eBay.

There are a lot of things you can sell on eBay, from your used product to new product. You can sell your old clothes that you no longer use, your books, electronic appliances, or buy at a wholesale price and sell it on eBay.

TO GET STARTED:

  1. Create your account

Creating an eBay account is simple. You will need to create a username, password, and can add a profile picture if you wish. You will also enter your basic personal information such as contact information. At this time, you will need to link up a PayPal account to your seller account as well. eBay guides you through this process painlessly. Once you do, buyers will now have a way to pay you for their purchases.

  1. Browse the categories and decide what to sell

Now you need items to sell. A good idea is to browse the various categories to get an idea of what others are listing. If you have an idea in mind, for example, if you have children’s clothing you wish to sell, look up the same brands and styles to see what it’s fetching. A great idea is to search the “completed listings” by clicking the box on the left of the screen. This way, you can see what items ended at and get a true indication!

If your plan is to sell your used products, for example, your clothes, then there will be no need to browse categories. What you are going to do is to bring out the clothes that you want to sell, wash and starch them.

  1. Take a great picture

Use natural light or a spotlight and plain background to take a clear picture. Take a front photo, a photo of the back of the item, and be sure to photograph any marking such as tags, labels, etc. This way, the buyer will feel confident that they have seen the item as a whole when placing a bid.

  1. Start your listing

You can now start your listing. To do this, choose the category you want the item in, upload your photos, create a title, and fill in the details. Don’t worry about forgetting any details as eBay has a comprehensive form that you just fill in the blanks.  Set your starting price, auction length, and then list it. Now the fun happens!

  1. Watch your auction

Over the course of your auction, keep an eye on it in case prospective sellers want to ask you questions. Answer them back as soon as possible to grab any possible bids.

  1. Send your invoice

When your auction ends, you will get an email notification. Go to your home page and click “send invoice” to fill out the PayPal form that will be sent to your buyer.

  1. Ship your item

Once the payment comes in, you are ready to ship your item. Ship in a timely manner, and don’t forget to package the item well. It may be traveling far! Once your auction is complete and the item is sent, feel free to leave the buyer feedback. If you had a great experience, they are likely to do the same for you. This is important for new sellers especially because a good feedback rating will help build your credibility and buyers will be more apt to buy from you.

Don’t let the shipping cost scare you if that is the case. You’re not the one to pay for the shipping, but your customers.

8. Drop shipping

Selling drop ship product on eBay is another way to boost your earnings. You no longer spend money on packaging your products and shipping them to your customers; your drop shippers take care of that. The only thing left for you is profit.

    Selling on eBay is fun and easy. Give these steps a try and create an account for yourself. In no time you will be selling like a pro!

HOW TO START A DROP SHIPPING BUSINESS ON eBAY

Before I start, let me first tell you what drop shipping means. This is the question most persons will like to ask “What is drop shipping?”

So simple: Drop shipping is a business model that allows you to buy products individually from a wholesaler and ship them directly to your customers.

It’s very possible for you to start your drop shipping business with no money, no inventory, and no prior experience!

With a drop ship business, your success depends on selling products which are then shipped directly from a manufacturer or wholesaler to your customer. Your profit depends on the difference between the wholesale price and the retail price (what you sell it for). You can run your business in a variety of ways (physical store, catalog, website) but this article will focus on doing it through eBay.

STEPS

  1. Create a seller account on eBay. Part of your investment in this business will be in listing fees on eBay.
  • If you’re not familiar with eBay, read How to Sell on eBay
  1. Research drop ship companies, also known as suppliers. Choosing suppliers that are in the same country as your intended customers will likely make shipping easier. Use a directory or other drop ship source such as Worldwide Brands, Doba or SimpleSource – they do the work of finding legitimate suppliers for you.
  • Watch out for scammers who pose as suppliers but are really just middlemen themselves. They’ll take their own cut of the profits, thus reducing yours. If they require a regular fee for using their service, consider that a very bright red flag!
  1. Decide what you want to sell. It’s important to check whether there’s enough demand (and not too much supply) for the products you want to sell. Here’s one way to find out:
  • Go to eBay
  • Click “Advanced Search”
  • Enter product (e.g. Art decorating lamps)
  • Sort by “Price Highest First”
  • Select “Completed listings only”
  • Click “Search”
  • Make note of the best selling products
  1. Establish an account as a retailer with the supplier. E-mail, call, or send a letter asking how to become a retailer of their products and ask if they will drop ship to your customers. You’ll also want to find out if they’ll put a custom return label (with your store name and address) on the shipments, so that the customers assume you sent it.
  • Don’t be surprised if the supplier you contact for a retail account requests a tax ID. In order to purchase products at a wholesale cost, many will require this information.
  1. List the items on eBay. Upload images and descriptions from the suppliers’ websites. Make a detailed, professional looking listing. For better results, provide your own descriptions and pictures of the product you’re selling (if you have samples). The price should be low enough to compete against similar items, but high enough to give you a good profit, once you account for listing fees.
  • Read How to Advertise Effectively on eBay and How to List Items on eBay for tips.
  1. Contact the distributor when your items sell. Give them your customer’s shipping address. They will send the product directly to your customer. Follow up to make sure the shipment came on time, and as described.

HOW TO ESTABLISH AN ONLINE SHOP THROUGH INSTAGRAM

0050283

Instagram is a wonderful app for sharing your personal moments, but you can also use it as a tool for selling items. If you are hoping to reach the millions of potential customers on Instagram, this article will get you started on what can prove to be both an interesting and profitable venture.

 

STEP ONE GETING YOUR ONLINE SHOP STARTED

 

  1. Connecting your Instagram to inSelly

Decide what you want to sell. Think about items that will attract Instagram users, and research what’s already out there – remember that you’ll want your items to stand out as something fresh or different.

Most of the items being sold on Instagram fall into the Beauty and Fashion categories. These kinds of items are likely to be most successful, as long as you are offering something unique.

 

  1. Look for inspiration. Find a successful online store on Instagram, and note how it runs and what makes it work so well. Don’t copy its style or use its exact ideas, but let it serve as your inspirational example.

 

  1. Sign your shop up on Instagram. Choose a username that’s unique and memorable, but nothing too long or difficult to understand. Make it easy to spell, and avoid using too many numbers. You want your potential customers to find you easily.

 

  1. Use your shop’s logo as your profile picture. Add your store’s logo to your new Instagram account, and then set it as your profile picture.

If you don’t have a logo and can’t make your own, contact a graphic artist. You want someone knowledgeable and creative enough to make you a memorable and professional-looking logo.

 

  1. Edit your profile. Write a brief, polished, professional-looking description of your shop, with information about the items or services you are offering, and post it to your profile. And be sure to include your contact information! Instagram does not provide direct messaging, so you’ll need to make your phone number or email address available.
  • You can also download a messaging application, which will allow you to send and receive messages associated with your Instagram account. This might help, but you should still have alternative contact information available.

 

  1. Upload items and relevant information. Upload high-quality pictures of your items one at a time (not as a set), so potential buyers can comment on the photo of a particular product. In addition, upload important information like your payment methods and shipping partners. Your online Instagram shop is now open and running!

CONNECTING YOUR INSTAGRAM TO INSELLY

You can connect your Instagram to a site called inSelly.

  1. Sign in with your Instagram login and password.
  2. Add one additional tag to your Instagram pictures with items for sale. The hashtag is #inselly. All those pictures will automatically appear in your inSelly account, thus creating your own personal online shop.
  3. Fill in the “Personal Information” form. Add PayPal email to receive direct payments from buyers.
  4. Add the price and shipping cost to each of your item for sale.
  5. Put a link to your inSelly shop as a website in your Instagram account. When posting new sales offers comment “To buy click the link in bio” to allow your Instagram followers to buy items in just one click.
  6. Share the link to your inSelly shop with your friends and followers in all other social networks. This will allow them to buy your items.

 

STEP TWO – INCREASING YOUR BUSINESS

 

 

  1. Gain followers

Every follower is a potential customer. Do some research online to figure out how to get as many followers as possible. For starters, try:

  • Connecting your Instagram to your Facebook, Twitter, and/or Tumblr accounts. Use all of your available social media accounts to promote your shop.
  • Following random people, especially those you think may be potential buyers.
  • Being friendly and acknowledging all inquiries.
  1. Maintain an attractive photo gallery. Make sure your pictures are of the highest quality possible.
  2. Add hashtags. Online sellers often use hashtags like #forsale or #sale. In addition, you can use hashtags that describe the categories of your items. For example, if you are selling lipstick, you can use #beauty, #makeup, and/or #lipstick. Adding hashtags will earn your pictures more “likes.”
  3. Stay active. Do not neglect your shop. Update photos every day, and don’t hesitate to re-upload items.
  4. Convince others to promote your products. You can send an item to local celebrities or bloggers in exchange for these people posting and promoting your products on their feeds. You may reach many new buyers this way.
  • The best way to approach this is to leave a comment with your contact details on someone’s Instagram photo. Ask if you can send them an item.
  • You are most likely to be successful at this technique if you look for celebrities and other people who typically post gifts from Instagram Shops.
  1. Solicit customer feedback. Ask politely for photo feedback when your buyers receive their items. Upload any feedback, cultivating positive impressions about your business.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE WITH AFFILIATE

FIfi

Using affiliate programs to make money can seem like a dream come true. You are promised a lot of money for helping sell products from the comfort of your own home. This may seem like a get-rich-quick scheme, but nothing comes easy. With hard work and dedication, however, you can build a solid source of side (or even main) income.

 

STEP ONE – FINDING AFFILIATE PROGRAMS

 

  1. Understand affiliate marketing

Companies create affiliate programs to help push their products. When you become an affiliate program member—which is usually free—you will be given an affiliate link, you need to promote this link on your website or another site. When people buy the products through your links, you will get a commision. As a member of an affiliate network, you can choose to promote any of several thousand products. It is possible to make up to 50–75% of the profit on each sale that results from your promotion.

 

  1. Know what sets each program apart.

Affiliate programs are everywhere online, and it can be hard to tell them apart. Each program distinguishes itself by the products it sells. Some affiliate programs only require you to post links; others will ask you to pay money to learn about how to sell the product you are selling. As the latter type of affiliate, you can make commissions by getting others to pay—by bringing other marketers into the fold.                Beware of any program that asks you to pay money before becoming their affiliate member.

 

  1. Understand the usual pay models

There are a few ways that you can make money from online affiliate marketing:

  • Cost-per-click: you get paid a very low amount every time someone clicks from your content onto the advertiser’s site. This is good for high-traffic content.
  • Cost-per-lead: you get paid a low amount (but slightly more than cost-per-click) every time someone signs up or fills a form with the advertiser using a link from your content.
  • Cost-per-acquisition: you get paid a fixed or percentage-based commission every time someone buys from the advertiser using a link from your content. Cost-per-acquisition marketing is good for focused, high-quality content.

 

  1. Choose an affiliate program

First, you must decide which affiliate program to join. Affiliate programs often have a theme, such as gardening or weight loss, and you should find a theme that interests you. Look for a network with a lot of product codes that are relevant to your topic. Consider networks like Commission Junction, LinkShare, ShareaSale, Jumia, Clickbank, and Amazon. Remember, it isn’t really about the network – it’s about whether the network is relevant to the content of your website.

 

STEP TWO- AFFILIATE MARKETING ON YOUR BLOG OR WEBSITE

 

  1. Research a topic or niche

Choose a popular trend or market – something that a lot of people are searching for, and something that a lot of online readers will find interesting (See Google Trends).

 

  1. Use the Google Keyword Research Tool to break down your chosen niche into more specific niches

Weight loss is a popular topic, but it is too broad. People want to lose weight for many reasons: vacations, weddings, summer, the new year, birthdays, and other special events. Choose a specific niche, such as “weight loss for summer” or “weight loss for weddings.”

 

  1. Consider the search volume for your chosen topic

Find out how many people are searching for that topic by running a web search for, say, “quick weight loss.” The quotes will make your search specific, so that the only results will be sites that mention the exact phrase “quick weight loss.” Your search engine should list the number of search results that turn up for your query. Try to find a topic that turns up fewer than 5,000 results.

 

  1. Create a website about the topic that you have chosen

The key to succeeding with affiliate programs is to build a content-rich website with useful information built around a specific theme. Don’t just lazily throw up a quick site or blog and string a bunch of affiliate links all over your pages. You have to start by building credibility, and the best way to do that is to write about something you know a lot about.

  • If you know a lot about the newest smartphones and tech products, try setting up a site that reviews and catalogs new products.
  • It’s also a good idea to own the products you promote so that you can appear more credible to your audience.

 

  1. Find affiliate codes and paste them into your site

Once your site is well-established and respected for its content, you can begin to link out to affiliate programs. Search the various affiliate networks and look for products that relate to the theme of your website. Grab the affiliate code from your account and paste it into your site. As people visit your site and click these links, you can begin earning money from the referrals in your articles.

  • Mention products in your articles or blog posts, and use the affiliate code to link out to each product. Use your articles to subtly convince readers that these products or services are worthwhile. Do not sell too hard.
  • Send out an email newsletter with product links. You can set up a pop-up that prompts visitors to your website to sign up for your newsletter.
  • Avoid sending out spam. If you send out daily newsletters or aggressive messages, your emails may be flagged by spam filters, and your visitors may even unsubscribe.

 

 

 

  1. Avoid hard-selling

The key is to subtly recommend products and services that fit in with what you are writing about in your content. If you try to market your affiliate products too aggressively, you may mar the credibility of your site.

  • Try not to come off as a salesperson. Present yourself as a knowledgeable, trustworthy third-party reviewer. Readers can be wary of online marketing tactics, and they may be more likely to click links if they don’t think you’re trying to sell them anything. Let the interested folks click, and don’t force anyone to click on the ad.

STEP THREE AFFILIATE MARKETING WITHOUT A WEBSITE

 

  1. Promote affiliate programs through article marketing

Write articles on a given product and find free places online to post them, such as review sites and article directories. Be sure to check if you are allowed to include an affiliate code link to the product you’re promoting. Some sites only allow you to link out to a non-commercial website.

  • Use strategic keywords in your articles. Place links in the headline, the first few sentences, and throughout the body of the article to attract the search engines.
  • Research long-tail keywords to target. If you are selling a weight-loss product, the phrase “weight loss” will pair you with tons of competition. Instead, break your topic down into more specific phrases like “lose weight in two weeks” or “lose weight for wedding.”

 

  1. Locate online communities relevant to the affiliate you are promoting

This might include forums, discussion boards, chat rooms, and blogs. Post often on the forum, and build a good reputation among the community members. Once people trust your judgment, you can start to include affiliate links in your posts. Do not simply spam the forums with product codes. You should sprinkle the affiliate links within genuinely useful content.

  • Review member policies on every community website. Verify whether you are allowed to post affiliate links to a site. Some online communities may prohibit affiliate links and consider the links advertising spam.
  • Review your account settings on every website. If you belong to a forum or discussion group that requires you to register for an account, you may be able to take advantage of a signature box in which you can post affiliate links. You can choose to display the signature box each time you reply to or write a post on the website.

 

3.Write an e-book on a topic that is related to your affiliates

For example, if you team up with an affiliate that sells fitness equipment, you may want to write an e-book about different workout techniques that involve the fitness equipment. Embed affiliate links into sections of your e-book. For example, if your e-book is about fitness, you can write about the importance of wearing appropriate running shoes during your workout, then embed affiliate links for a specific brand of running shoes that you recommend to your readers.

  • Choose a topic you are knowledgeable about. You may earn more from your affiliates if readers gain value from the information you are providing.
  • Include affiliate banners and pictures within your e-book. Banners and pictures that contain affiliate links may catch the eye and draw clicks.
