There are some myths about affiliate marketing, which attract a lot of people to it thinking that they are real. First is they believe that managing a business online is simple and second, they also believe that one can make a fortune through affiliate marketing in a flash.

Approximately 1% of those who are into affiliate marketing have become wealthy overnight. There might be some who were fortunate to achieve huge success in a short period of time once establishing an affiliate system, but most of them can confidently say they only had good luck.

Anyone who is successful in an online business would say he worked his tail off to get where he is today. Success in affiliate marketing takes hard work and time, but it is worth the time and effort put into this kind of business.

If you are considering starting an affiliate program, one of the recommended things you must consider is having your own website or blog, not just any kind of website but a professional looking one.

How do you build an affiliate marketing website?

And what are the easy steps to building one?

  • First, you should have already made a decision on the theme or market of your website. It will be a lot better if you already have an idea what products or services you will promote as this would help you decide on the design and the layout of your website.
  • The next thing you want to do is choose a domain name for yourDomain Name website and get it hosted with a web hosting company. The domain name should be a unique name used to give a name to the actual address of your site on the Internet. When deciding what domain name you should register, look into what types of products you are promoting and the theme of your site. Having the laser targeted keywords in your domain name will give you better opportunities of drawing more people to your website. Also, pick a top level domain or extension, like .com because it is more popular and give people a sense of more authority.
  • When selecting your web-host, consider the security level of servers and running up time guarantees by the host company.

Now, you can start creating the pages on your website. Don’t worry if you know a very little in this area. There are many page generation tools and fast launch sites available online like WordPress within your hosting account.

There are countless online sources that will help you build an affiliate marketing website easily, though you might need time to study and learn this process. This is one of the most important reasons why your site or the products you are going to be promoting should match your interest.

Quick Tip: If you are creating your affiliate marketing website for the first time it will be a lot more fun if you know the theme of your site very well.

If you don’t have time or don’t know where to start building your own website, you can use available templates or purchase readily available websites too. The latter, however, is a more expensive option.

wwwCreating an affiliate website on your own would be cheaper option, more educational process and more interesting. Using this option of building your own website, you may also increase your knowledge in Information Technology and the use of tools, softwares and Internet Marketing.

As you educate yourself in these areas, you are increasing your advantage against 95% of affiliate marketers. If you already know the basics in web page development like programming languages and graphics softwares it will give you an edge because you can make your site more professional looking, easier to use or better to navigate. Essentially, if you are skillful in this area, you can concentrate more of your time on the creating content for your page rather than spending it on the design.

The key to attracting more people to your website is having unique high quality content on your site. There are other several factors that contribute to a successful affiliate marketing website, but a good content should be #1 priority on your list.

content

This is the reason why users come to your site. They want to get quality and useful information and when they don’t find it, they will definitely go elsewhere to find it. Write interesting articles related to your site theme as this would make them visit more frequently to your site.

If you have already identified an affiliate program that complements your website, add your links to other business sites and other quality and informative sites. Links contribute and benefit to how well you will be listed in major search engines as well.

Also, create pages for the products you are promoting, but don’t just promote the products by putting hyped-up information and hyped ads. Keep your readers interested peeked by posting lots of relevant and useful information. This would make them click the link to the business website and buy your product. Remember that irrelevant content means no regular visitors, no sales, no commissions and ultimately, no business.

Make your website simple but yet not without a touch of class in order to make it appear more of a professional business website rather than just a personal website. This will be more pleasing to their eyes and more interesting to browse through.

Checkout other successful online stores to get great ideas on how you can improve your site. Don’t place too many banner ads on your site since these could distract some site users; and instead of clicking your ad, they might just leave your site and look for other more interesting websites. After all, banner ads are not the only ways of marketing your products.

Now your website should be complete, and it is time to submit its URL to major search engines to increase your web traffic.

Grow from where you initially started. Learn more about the use of keywords for search engine optimization and apply them in your ongoing content. Update your site as regularly as possible and/or add new webpages.

Tip: Make sure to inform your prospects about the latest updates on your website. You can use your own newsletter to accomplish this.

The Internet offers a huge source of information about just anything, make the most of it. Continue to educate yourself on how to improve your site and soon you’ll find yourself to be successful in affiliate marketing.

Creating A Marketing Sales Funnel For Your Affiliate Products

The Most Important Part Of Your Affiliate Marketing Business Is Your Marketing Funnel And It Needs To Be Done Properly To Achieve Your Goal!

Affiliate MarketingWhat is a marketing funnel ?

A marketing funnel is a series of technologies involved into a sales funnel taking a prospect from entering the door to making them a valued customer.

A marketing funnel has a few components that should be done in a certain order so it will work properly and testing is essential before you launch your marketing funnel.

Now I am going to cover different ways to build marketing funnel:

First way to build a marketing funnel is without a website you will need a lead capture page system that hosts your lead capture page. This way you will not host your own website and will strictly be using it at a sales funnel to sell your affiliate products. This system could be one like LeadPages.net or Elite Marketing Pro as an example of two I’ve personally used.

I prefer the Elite Marketing Pro platform because it shows you how to market your business and/or website and what is working now by real entrepreneurs who are in the trenches too. Not someone just talking but real people with real results.

What these systems do is allow you to build lead capture pages to process your opt-in for that free report or gift your giving out to get your prospects email information. Once they have opted in to your list then you should have your email autoreponder email sequence kick in automatically with other messages you want to share with your lists and product they are looking for and should be related to the report or gift you gave them when they opt-in.

Here below is a screenshot of my personal account and some of the lead capture pages I’ve designed here inside Elite Marketing Pro. EMP is a complete system I use with everything you need to launch a marketing campaign fast and painlessly. The beauty of it is that you can create as many as you want and it doesn’t matter what niche or market  your in.

Here is one of my marketing funnels and lead capture page and how it looks like with a lead capture system.

Now lets take a look at one of my marketing funnels using my own personal websites below. Obviously this one of my sites where it has many other pages, products and blog all in one. Typically you would just create a one page website hosting your lead capture page or you could use a great WordPress Plugin called FunnelKit ( They are currently developing a mobile ready version which will be awesome.

Of course if you know what tools to use you can design and make your website look as good as a lead capture page system but frankly I think you’ll prefer the lead capture system since it is already set up and ready for you to launch your campaigns. You just have to fill in some areas required for you to have everything up an running.

What are the components of what makes a marketing funnel work so well and profitable ? Here are some things you must have in place:

  1. You need a website like WordPress that has thousands of options to make your website or blog like a million dollar site…Awesome platform and highly recommended. If you need help connect with me and I’ll guide you through.
  2. A Domain Name – Godaddy.com, Namecheap.com are great registrars to use.
  3. You need an Email Autoresponder like Aweber to create your Opt-In forms
  4. You need an affiliate product. Amazon, Clickbank, JVZoo, CommissionJunction.com ( cj.com ), Shareasale.com and many others that are free to sign up and have thousands of affiliate products at your disposal. Just make sure you follow FTC and Spam guidelines to keep everything on the up and up.
  5. You need to write a compelling offer and sales page that attracts your prospects to opt in for more information or get a free report/ebook or your own newsletter. If you decide to use your blog then just make sure that you put out great unique high quality content on your blog and keep it fresh.
  6. Once your prospects are in your funnel it is important to nurture this list and don’t blast them with sales pitches all the time but provide value and knowledge they can use. They might be interested in learning how to take their business to the next level and you could be at the right place at the right time to help them with their problems by providing a solution and creating an ally that will follow you as long as you provide value to them on a consistent basis. This is the reason blogging is so powerful to be used as a medium to pass on our knowledge and expertise or a physical product that provides relief or solve a problem and help others in the process. This is why a marketing funnel is so important to your success.

When you have a great funnel with a great product combination you will immediately know by the response of your prospects.

Affiliate Marketing For Beginners Tips Strategies For Getting Started

Had to write this affiliate marketing for beginners article to answer a few questions regularly asked about affiliate marketing for beginners plus discuss some affiliate marketing tips to get you started.

This article is not only affiliate marketing for beginners but also more advanced marketers looking for inside tips too.

Never Done Affiliate Marketing Before ?

No Problem!

Affiliate Marketing for BeginnersIt’s not as complicated as you might think. You just need to do it correctly so you maximize your marketing efforts.

You will be required to do marketing in order to get people to see what your selling. You have different methods of marketing but marketing can get a little tricky.

Here I will be giving you an overview of affiliate marketing for beginners and what you need to do in order to get started.

In affiliate marketing you are selling products that others have already created and are already set up to take orders. This makes affiliate marketing a very attractive business and many are raking in some serious dough with it and you can too.

This is not only affiliate marketing for beginners it is also for those who are currently struggling with affiliate marketing as well.

First thing you need to do is figure out what product you will sell and which niche would you prefer to work with. My advice is to select a niche that you know something about and can write about it with the knowledge you already possess.

It is easier to write and talk about something you know well and it will reflect in your Ads, Copyrighting, and your sales funnels.

In this example I will be going over the Health & Fitness Niche ( make sure to watch video below ) which is a very competitive niche but room for anyone to make a few bucks because it is a Billion Dollar industry and people are spending a lot of money to find these products and this is where you come in.

Quick Tip: As a coincidence this is the time of year when this niche is mostly pitched by health & fitness companies, affiliates and big department stores. This time a year people are just getting ready for the holidays and eat a little extra, if you get what I mean.

And most have made their new years resolution of loosing a few pounds to fit that bathing suit they plan on buying or already purchased for that vacation they are planning to go on.

Second thing you need to do is find an affiliate network that you can find a reputable product that is selling and doing well. You don’t want to sell a crappy product to others because I am sure you wouldn’t appreciate it as well.

You have to put yourself in your customers shoes and ask yourself why would you buy the same product that you are trying to sell.

These are the most popular affiliate marketing for beginners networks you can get started right away.

There are many free affiliate networks you can sign up with and some of the popular ones are:

  • Clickbank.com
  • CJ.com ( Commission Junction )
  • Shareasale.com
  • Amazon.com
  • Jvzoo.com
  • and many others…

Once you sign up for one or more affiliate networks than you will find a product you would like to sell.

Third thing is once you find a product then you would like to do a little bit of keyword research to find keywords people are searching for online to find the health & fitness product you plan to sell.

You could use a free tool like Google Keyword Planner to find your keywords you will be using in your marketing campaigns.

Here is a video I previously recorded on doing keyword research below:


You want to go after low competition keywords that have a low CPC ( Cost Per Click ) so you don’t blow your budget and not get the results you are expecting which ultimately is making sales.

In the video above I did not discuss this strategy but if look at the video you will see that in the Google keyword tool next to the Competition Tab you will see the Suggested Bid Tab. Click on this tab twice so you will get the lowest bid on the keywords it will display and you could use in your marketing campaigns.

Fourth thing is once you find at least 10 to 20 keywords it’s time to build your sales funnel or better yet your lead funnel.

For this I highly recommend you have a lead capture builder like one offered inside Elite Marketing Pro and here is a video I recorded about what you get with this system which additionally gives you over ten top products you can sell as well and give you all of the marketing training your need to build cost effective marketing campaigns.

Also ( highly recommended ) you will need an email autoresponder like Aweber or GetResponse at a minimum. Why ?

The Money Is In The List!

To make it in this business you want to capture your leads and prospects email information to stay in touch with them and follow up with other free reports, bonuses. tips or other products you might have or find that you would like to share with them.

This affords you the luxury of building a list that you can just send an email to and potentially grow your business and your sales without having to continue to pay for additional marketing every time you have a product to offer. It’s the smart way to do affiliate marketing.

I discussed this in more detail in my previous blog post, go here to read more: How To Create A Lead Capture Page Using Elite Marketing PRO which is the next step you need to do in order to collect your leads and prospects email information.

Your list will be your most valuable asset you will have in your business and will guarantee you longevity in your business.

The email autoresponder will manage all of your lists for you so you can efficiently stay in touch with your subscribers and your customers all in one place.

You can segment your lists by niche, subscriber status or buyers list which you should do to make life easier on yourself when wanting to contact your list and send them other products, tips or free reports you would like to share with them.

Hope these affiliate marketing for beginners tips help you get started with your affiliate marketing business.
