Now, back to reality!!!

How Do I Do It?

The short answer is, I use Wealthy Affiliate.  The easiest way starting out as an internet marketer is by being an affiliate for other people’s products. The reasons are quite simple and obvious.

Build your own website with Wealthy Affiliate and you won’t have to worry about all the technical jargon associated with it and you don’t have to spend much money and time creating your own product. All you need to do is drive traffic to your website, make the sales,  and you just pick up your cash.

You can create your own website in less than 30 seconds.  Watch this video on how it is done. It is really that simple!

Where to Find Products? 

To find products to promote as an affiliate is not difficult. There are thousands available for you to choose from. Amazon and ShareASale are some of the places to find products to promote free of charge. Some will charge money to join but most will be free.

As an affiliate marketer, the aim is not promoting one product only, it’s like putting all your eggs in one basket. Choose about 5 or even more in different areas, ones you find interesting and which you think might be good sellers. Take your time when choosing and read through everything, remember at the end of the day it will be your money driving traffic to that site, make your money work for you.

How To Choose Affiliate Products? 

Here are a few things you need to keep in mind when choosing your affiliate products:

  • Have a look at when and how they pay you your commissions.
  • The percentage commission they will be paying you.

Preferably choose ones that pay a high commission and pays into your account as soon as the sale is made. That will keep you from losing money from sales because in many instances you will not be able to track any sales activity.

All that said and done you are now armed to the teeth with  affiliate links, the dog is happily eating a prime fillet, so let’s get on with it.

Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Website

The most effective way is to write a natural article that target keyword. If you can understand keywords, you can get a lot of traffic. Wealthy Affiliate program has free keyword tool that works great or you can use Jaaxy tool to research keywords.

The most common way to generate traffic fast is PPC (pay per click) or run solo ads. Google AdWords is the big dog in town but there are a few others which you can easily find doing a simple search. It’s quite easy to sign up and then you are ready to go.

Now the kind people from the affiliate programs you joined have possibly given you keywords that you can just copy and paste into your Google AdWords. Now all you need to do is copy and paste them,  make your bid and the money will start rolling in.

Here Is Bad News:

Here’s the bad  news, unless you are in business to lose money, this is all you will be doing and the dog will have to revert back to dog food and you to bread and water. Your advertising is going to cost  you much more than your income.

This said you can make it as an affiliate, and you can make a lot of money, you are  however going to have to do some work. Wealthy Affiliate program can show how to get started the correct way.

Your main aim is to find cheap and underexposed keywords using a keyword tool such as Jaaxy. Let’s take an example of Google AdWords.

If you copy and paste the keywords given to you, the chances are good that a lot of other affiliates are also using the exact same keywords. So for you to get an ad into the top 10 or first page you will need to bid high. Let’s say you end up bidding 50 cents for a pretty broad keyword. The product you are selling is selling for $47 of which you receive 50% commission,  $23.50 less banking charges.   In effect, that means that for every 47 clicks you receive you must make one sale to just break even. I can tell you now on a broad keyword you will get 47 clicks but you will not get one sale.   To find out how a keyword is performing and converting into sales is to base it on 200 clicks. When reaching that target take a look at the conversion rate, how many clicks per sale. If you have made no sales, or just one, you need to refine your keywords because you are hitting the wrong target market.

Finding and Implementing Ideal Keywords

Where and how do you find and implement these seemingly elusive keywords? I mean there are only so many words in the English language! Jaaxy keyword search tool can help you out!

Step 1 – Be unique, Be Different

Take a good look at the affiliates website you joined, and see what it is that makes this a unique product that customers should have. Now please this answer does not lie in the first words you read on the page, the headline or sub-headline. Read through the entire affiliate sales page and find your own unique ideas, be different.

Step 2 – Use Keyword Search Tool to Identify Perfect Keywords

Now that you have the idea clearly in your mind, think up a few keywords that fit this idea and will relate well to the product you are trying to sell. Come up with a few single words and some two-word phrases. Write all of these down until you have about ten or fifteen.

Step 3 – Use Wealthy Affiliate Free Keyword Search & Jaaxy Tool

You have your Weatlhy Affiliate account, AdWords account,  the Jaaxy keyword tool and use all of them. You can test drive Jaaxy keyword by searching up to 30 keywords for free. You can download Good Keywords  for free and it will provide you with an enormous amount of information.

Alphabet Soup Technique

Take your single and two-word phrases and combine them into three and four-word phrases. Test these in your tools to see how many searches take place and test different combinations of these words until you find the right combination.

Once you have determined  good combination  keyword phrases, add them to your keyword list in your account. Chances are that you will be able to get into the top 10 easily with the lowest bid.

Target your market with specific targeted 3 and 4-word phrases, they will get you quality clicks, cheaply, with the target market generating sales.

You have heard the term find your niche over and over, but believe me, if you are going to try to hit broadly you are going to lose money.

Final Words on promoting Wealthy Affiliate

You can be a successful affiliate, but you need to put the time and effort in finding the right target audience for your product. Getting the balance right is the ultimate goal of your business.

Happy Marketing!

  1. Thanks for this great article. One question …. how long does it take for Google to index your site and rank it? Does the website itself need the keywords as well as each post? Thanks!

    1. Hello Cari-
      Thank you for your question! There is no set amount of time for Google to index your website. But few things can be done increase the speed in which we get ranked. Many factors contribute towards your website getting ranked more quickly such as the follow:

      (1) Google revisiting your website often (they do this naturally with more authority sites and sites that are regularly updated)

      (2) Social sharing

      (3) Google+ and Authorship

      (4) Having a Webmaster Tools Account

      (5) Submitting an XML Sitemap (will help them crawl and index your site effectively and faster)

      Keywords are part of your content. If your content is of a great quality and engaging to the reader, definitely that go along way.
      Most posts/pages do contain keywords. Keywords are to be used sparingly as they are NOT the only thing that search engines (SE) look for when they visit your site.
      I hope I answered your questions! Thank you for reading!

  5. Hey there!

    I found this “how to promote WA post” really beneficial because I’m thinking of promoting wealthy affiliate as soon as I have got my other site off and running.

    You’ve explained everything so clearly.

    Thanks =)

    1. Brandon-

      There is not set amount of time (hours). Everybody has different things to do at any given time of the day and not everybody has the same amount of time to commit to the business.

      My recommendation is to dedicate as much time as you can to your online business. Keep in mind that this business is yours to develop, nurture and grow it to the level you are happy with. Bottom line is, wealthy affiliate’s income can be big or small.

      Initially it takes time, but in the long run, an online business can run on auto if setup correctly and it pays off.

      Thank you Parker!

  6. Hi Udoh

    I’m confused, I was of the impression that keywords mattered, how is it that they suddenly don’t?

    And I must also say that I also have a website that’s indexed and everything but of all the 7 posts and 20 pages I’m only ranking for a single keyword, why is that so?

    1. Congratulations to ranking in top pages….

      You may have misread the post. Where does it say that keyword do not matter? The post points out that you can lose a lot of money if you use keywords that are not searched for (in another words that are not profitable). When you use Ad-word advertising program, you must select your keywords very carefully. Otherwise it wont matter and you will still pay for them even when they did not work or not.

      Keywords alone don’t make great content. It is all about the way you use them and how well you relate to your audience. There are many factors that contribute to posts to rank high.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
