Any affiliate program can earn you a lot of money. It’s about finding programs that fit YOUR niche.

You should be able to find several indispensable facts about Affiliate Marketing in the following paragraphs. If there’s at least one fact you didn’t know before, imagine the difference it might make.
Important Tool #1: Your Own Website
The most important and indispensable tool in Affiliate Marketing is your own website. The first step in any successful affiliate marketing business is building a good, credible and professional looking website. Your website is the jump off point of all your marketing efforts. Thus, you must first build a user-friendly website, which will appeal to your prospects and encourage them to click on the links to the products and service you are promoting and make a purchase. Therefore, you must first concentrate your efforts in building a website that will cater to what your prospects need.
The most important thing you should consider is that almost all web users go online to look for information, not necessarily to go and buy something. Above all else, make your website full of original, relevant and useful content. People will love articles that are appealing and helpful. Keep in mind that, in the internet, content is still king and good quality content will not only build your credibility, it can also help you achieve a higher search engine ranking. By posting relevant and useful articles, you establish yourself as a credible expert in the field, making you a more trustworthy endorser of the product or service you promote. Establishing a good reputation is a good step in building up a loyal consumer base.
Now that we’ve covered those aspects of Affiliate Marketer, let’s turn to some of the other factors that need to be considered.
Important Tool #2: Incentives
Competition is extremely tight in the internet world. You must always be one-step ahead of your rivals to ensure that you capture a significant share of your target market. Therefore, you must use every possible means to encourage people not only to visit your site but also to click and proceed to the websites of the products and services you are promoting. Building an opt-in email list is one of the best ways to gather prospects. Offer a newsletter or an e-zine. Better yet, offer incentives to your prospects to encourage them to subscribe to your newsletters. You can present free softwares, access to exclusive services and other freebies that will be helpful to your prospects.
Important Tool #3: Link Popularity
The importance of driving highly targeted traffic to your website cannot be emphasized enough. The all-important web traffic is at the top of the list of the most important entities in the internet world. Attracting people to your site should be the first step you should carry out. Do everything to achieve a high search engine ranking. Link Popularity is one of the factors that search engines use to determine search engine rankings. Therefore, to enhance your link popularity, you must launch an aggressive reciprocal link campaign.
Now you can be a confident expert on Affiliate Marketing. OK, maybe not an expert. But you should have something to bring to the table next time you join a discussion on Affiliate Marketeting.

  1. Okay Lisa…Lesson learned, great video, what can I do to “drive” traffic to my site, since that seems to be the ‘key’ to all this…?? Gregg in Dallas.

  2. I agree some people abuse the method, but there are some very useful affiliate sites out here that actually provide useful information. There are always going to be those who look for the quick buck, but those sites never last.

  3. Jake, I’m not sure what you mean. My comments are moderated because I get a boatload of spam in my comments here and I approve all comments before they are live. That’s all. 🙂 Take it easy.

  4. not to slight the video but i abhor the idea of taking a hobby presenting it as something of interest and then using that as a launch pad on a website to market things which might not be well recommended. heres the problem with marketing though instead of talking directly about a point to create interest people will talk around the point and use common sense to create interest and to not give away any gems or really useful tips.

  5. you probably can’t get it back, just open a new one. Where you clicking your own ads?

  6. thanks u just give me an idea u very smart

  7. Hello Lissa can you help me?
    I have a problem my AdSense acount was deactiveted.
    What can i do to get back to AdSense?
    Help me pls,pls,pls
    please repply me
    Thank you.

  8. Great Video. I have watched other video’s of yours. Keep up the good work.

  9. Lisa your very interesting i’ve not join anything yet, i wouldn’t have wasted my time if you wasn’t so good i enjoy learning from you, i work a lot of hours on a job i have worked 19 yrs 8 mnth i would like to adventure into something different and easier,i would like to learn from you! i could write a book about my life but im not.

  10. Thank you for your good English.
    You have too many videos out there.
    Though I am tired now, I will return soon enough.
    I have subscribed to your youtube videos.
    Thanks for being my mentor as I have just started.

  11. I’m desperating trying to register with Clinkbank but I’m having problems. I go to the join up page, enter my details, submit form. Then I get the join up again, so I enter my details, submit & again we keep on going. I have sent an email to Clinkbank about 2 days ago & I’m hoping to get a response back soon. Has this happened to anyone else?

  12. thanks for your clip. I have sent u an email. Regarding Clinkbank I’m having issues with them I’m trying to Register with them. I enter my details on Registration page, then hit submit. Guess what, I get the Registration Page again. This keeps on happening, over and over again. I’ve contacted Clinkbank but they have NOT responded back to me. Has this happened to anyone else or am I just the lucky one.

  13. Its good to see other affiliates doing well..

  14. I mean cant you see the fact that there is that status quo that gets ticked when someone has a domain name that they feel they are more qualified to have. and that google is desinged to appease them. I mean I have seen over 300,000 busienss with good keyword domains all put out of business by some spammy site with content and good hackers. is this what u like sister

  15. Ah! i see. thank you very much. your commitment to honesty is really refreshing! i have just started my site, like yesterday, but check it out if you have the chance. movie-reviews-online(dot)com. its not great, and it only has 1 review up 🙁 one day though.

  16. money is a bane to freedom…the root of most evil…remember that hehe

  17. It’s about finding the right mix for your site. Obviously you don’t want your site to come across as a shady one that recommends everything. But if you spend time giving people quality content and honest reviews that fit with your site, you won’t have to worry about the number. The problem is when people put up too many links and no useful content to go with them. I don’t count. I just provide value along with my links.

  18. Hi lisa, i was wondering if there are such things as too many affiliates. you know? is there a limit as to the amount that you should add to any particular website? and also, at what amount of traffic per day, or per month, would you recommend integrating ads?

  19. great video and i always learn a lot from lisa. Thanks Lisa.

  20. I started 11 years ago. Download my free book ThePerfectSiteGuide(dot)com and I talk a lot about how I started there. I make all my money from affiliate marketing and Google AdSense. No tricks or secrets. Just a lot of writing and hard work. 🙂
