Top Secrets To List Building Affiliate Marketing

. Monday, September 29, 2008

he Money is in the List?

I am sure that you have heard this before. If you are involved with Internet marketing, you have probably heard it over and over again. But, Is it True?


I am involved with affiliate marketing and the great thing is that you do not need a product to begin making money. There are thousands of viable products available that you can make a great income on.

Whatever your interest or your niche is, there are plenty of products waiting for you to make money with. There is also plenty of room for you to create and promote your own product. Provided of course that it is a good one.

As for affiliate programs, they are very simple to get started with. You just need to sign up for their affiliate program, promote it, and watch the money start rolling in (hopefully). This is all great, but then what? Most likely you would find another product and start all over again.

What if, when you find or create this new product, you already have hundreds or thousands of people to instantly tell about it? You can shoot them a quick email and have immediate money in your pocket. Then you can start advertising this product and create even more people for your next great idea. As you can imagine, this process can take on a snowball effect. Before you know it, your primary income will be from your online business. Now you can work from home!

How do you go about starting a list?

One of the best ways is to create a squeeze page. This is a simple one page website that is designed to capture your visitors name and email address. You can do this by offering a free report, a free subscription to your newsletter, or both.

Once you have their information they are added to your auto responder and they are a part or your list. At this time you would redirect them to your affiliate product website or to your own website with a link.

You have now created a potential customer for your current and your future products.

When you start to email them regularly make sure that you are offering them something of value. Some ideas include: useful information, free reports, free software, and creative ideas that you come across.

You can than suggest your product and offer a link to your product or affiliate page. Build up your product with a strong sales message and watch the sales start pouring in.

One piece of advice, do not oversell to your list. This is a very valuable resource and should not be jeopardized.

You need to give good solid information and only promote valuable products. Treat your list as a group of friends that you want to help with the information that you are providing. Not as another dollar in your pocket. Just follow the golden rule and treat your list as you would want to be treated and you will be on your way to success.

Big traffic to your internet marketing website with Google AdWord

. Wednesday, September 10, 2008

If you are seeking targeted website traffic for your Internet marketing business, then Google AdWords is a great option to consider. But remember your research into and selection of the right keywords to be used with your AdWords campaign are both very important. With this effort you are targeting the very visitors who will come to your site. Keywords and keyword phrases that you select must be relevant to your website content, and needless to say there must be a relation to the product or service that is being sold on your website.
Begun in the year 2000, Google's AdSense is a pioneering targeted advertising program via which your business ads are made to appear as "sponsored links" on the Google results pages in addition to the results pages of Google's partners including AOL and Your ads can also appear on websites and blogs whose owners have chosen to use Google AdSense; you will pay them a commission from your advertising account as well as to Google when people click your ad there.
You place all your ads for free as of this writing via Google webcrawler technology (and this is automated). However, you do need to keep in mind that on average it costs you $2 to $4 in advertising to make a sale, because of the commissions you pay out when your AdWords ads are clicked-through.
In writing your ads, you choose keywords and a short one- or two-line text ad, which is displayed on the results pages when the ad keywords match up with the search keywords. The order of ads on a search results page or within a webpage is determined based on the amount of commission you are willing to pay Google for an Internet surfer to click your ads in addition to the relevance of the ad to the search and the historical click-through rate of the ad. You have the option to narrow your target market in your Google AdWords account settings, such as to specific geographical regions. This can help you greatly in controlling costs by limiting click-throughs while making those click-throughs more intensely target-specific.
Google AdWords, if used correctly, can drive huge amounts of targeted website traffic to your Internet business splash pages, and for a very affordable rate. One of the greatest things about Google AdWords is that it does away with one of the oldest advertising conundrums: "I know that 50% of my advertising expenses are wasted; but the problem is, I don't know which half." Much of the randomness of traditional advertising is done away with, and the always-coveted targeted marketing is made far more efficient.
AdWords is being used by people more and more all the time. What this means for you is more and more competition, and less and less of the pie from a keyword or keyword phrase. So, use the Internet to find sites that show you the latest highly-searched-for words and phrases and pick those that related to your business. You may also want to look into buying e-books and downloads that were developed by highly effective Internet marketers who have made a lot of money with Google AdWords and are willing to share their secrets to getting only the best targeted website traffic.

There are countless strategies for marketing your business successfully. Keep reading for some great tips and ideas that can be used by seasoned marketers or complete newbies!

One important marketing strategy you can use to improve your business is article marketing.

Write one article, submit it to several article sites, and soon you could easily have hundreds of links to your product or service! And it doesn't cost a dime - even better.

A great way to generate tons of traffic is by using viral marketing. This is another one of my favorite marketing strategies. You can accomplish this by creating special reports and ebooks and inserting your links to other related and complimentary products. Give your report or ebook away and you can easily have thousands of people, your FREE ebook in hand, filled with all of the links to your money making products. Allow people to give your free ebook away or sell it, and it spreads even more. This is viral! Another great way to improve your internet marketing strategies.

Posting in forums is a very good way to market your business as well. Visit topic
markeingrelated forums, read other members posts and respond when your answer will benefit other readers. Don't spam the forums by posting your ads and leaving.
