Simple Affiliate Marketing Tactics That Anyone Can Follow

Updated on March 16, 2012

Affiliate marketing has been around since the dawn of the internet. Businesses use this online tactic to get others to sell their products for them. The people who sell the products get a percentage of the commission each sale. So, it becomes a win-win situation for everyone.

However, there are many questions regarding affiliate marketing that people when just stating out in this market.

1. How do you get someone to purchase a product you are promoting?

2. How do you choose the right phrase to rank in for search engines?

3. How are the phrases ranked in the search engine?

Using the internet people use search based words to locate the information that they are searching for. So, finding a good phrase for the product you are trying to sell is the best way to generate traffic for that product. When you are, choosing the phrase that you think people will be searching for make sure you ask yourself two questions that you need to be able to answer.

1. Are people searching for information on a product or solution?

2. With this phrase would people be intent on buying something from it?

These are important questions. Why? Because if someone is searching for that phrase and all they want is information. Then you will probably not sell anything. However, if the phrase can be interpreted to mean a solution then the person will most likely purchase on that phrase.

Now that you have a phrase that you think might work you need to find a product that may go with that phrase. You will need to be able to write up a description of that product in articles and ad copies. When you write about the product, always put a spin on the product that it is a solution to the problem.

Another way people sometimes promote using this type of method is to outline a solution where you do not need to use this product. Once you have outlined that solution then you can convince your reader that with this product it will be much easier and less time consuming to perform that solution. This entices the reader to solve the problem quickly and easily and generally leads to a sale.

Once you have determined the search word and located the product it is now time to get people to learn about that product. This involves getting traffic to the specific pages that you are using. Many people use Pay per Click strategies, but this can be expensive. So, another method is called SEO marketing. This type of marketing can be highly focused and last much longer than other type of marketing products. It’s also mostly free except time because you are using highly target traffic generation to get the most from each article. So, you can submit these articles to some highly article directories each of them containing a 1 to 2 percent keyword ratio. This will allow the search engines to rank your articles properly.

It is not an easy process and does take some work and practice. Once you start you are on your way to learning the proper procedure to getting the traffic you need to sell your product. Not every campaign that you start is going to be successful. Some say for every 5 campaigns that you start you will only get hits on two of them to sell the products effectively. So, getting discouraged can take a toll on you. However, sticks with it continue to learn and do your research on each of the products you are promoting. As, you do your success rate will increase, and you will be able to make better income from each campaign.
