Starting an affiliate marketing business is the simplest process now-a-days. There are tonnes and tonnes of resources available in Internet to teach you affiliate marketing. But in reality, your success and profit depends on how you are operating your affiliate business. I mean operating towards selling an affiliate product. In practical, its quite simple to select a product from an affiliate network and use Google Adwords to drive targeted traffic quickly.
Finally, did you sell the product ? do you make money ? The answer will be no from many of the people. There are many reasons for how affiliate marketing fails ? but to make profits what needs to be done ? Lets see affiliate marketing in that angle of making profits. That’s why i used the term “meliorate”.
Cut down Advertisement Costs.
Cost reduction is an important step in business operation. When there is a demand for fund, cutting down the cost may help your business to survey some extent. The cost that you spend for PPC Ads (for ex. using Google Adwords) has to reduce.
- First, go through your Campaign’s keyword list, find out those non-performing keywords and simply disable them.
- Revise your keyword list and see do they are really targeted to your product. An example, if you are selling “personal finance software” then few of the laser focused keywords are “buy best personal finance software”, “download personal finance software” etc.
Keywords are important in your Ad campaign because it decides the source of traffic so pay attention to use right keywords. Also, keep an eye on the returns/earnings versus your budget. Atleast, your campaign should yield 10% profit. Otherwise, i would say, its waste of time…
Broadcast The Sale via Article Marketing.
Article marketing is the best alternative for your Ad campaigns. Because of the reason its free, every sale you make yields you 100% profit. As an affiliate marketer you should not avoid article marketing.
- You have to write an article explaining the affiliate product or addressing the buyer problem by showing the affiliate product as a solution.
- Learn how to review products ?
- Again you should use those laser focus keywords especially in the article title.
I would personally recommend, Hubpages as the best place to publish articles to sell your affiliate product.

Go Viral Using Social Media Tools.
Have a Twitter account ? Then work to increase the number of followers. If you have ~2000 visitors, its quite simple to show your affiliate product to that audience in seconds (by a single tweet).
- The advantage of using Twitter is that, it goes Viral. Your follower may have 1000 more followers and that goes like a chain reaction. So write a great & catchy tweet with a call-to-action.
If you don’t want to work yourself to gain more followers, simply buy the followers. Don’t avoid using Twitter (or facebook too) because again its free which yields you 100% profit on every sale.
