When they ask most millionaires affiliate marketers about the important things that make them serious money, these three things I’m going to be discussing always come on top of their list.
If you’re just hearing about affiliate marketing for the first time, I will explain it in a few words. However, if you want to know more about it, I recommend that you read this article:
What is affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a kind of online business/hustle where marketers promote companies’ and individuals’ products, and services offers, and get paid per sale made or per lead generated.
Affiliate marketers earn a certain percentage of the selling price of products, services and offer they are promoting.
It can be 10%, 30%, 50%, and even 100% commission. You may be thinking why would product owners give 100% commissions and earn nothing?
Some of them may want to support the marketers. Some are tired of generating income from the same product. Some just want to build their email list. Some products and inexpensive, and because of this, they don’t want to share the money with the marketers.
Without wasting time, let’s dive into the three most important things to make serious money from affiliate marketing.
Attention is the number one most important thing you need to make serious money from affiliate marketing. As you know that we are in the Information Age, getting attention has never been more important than now.
People’s attention is low at this age because of numerous distractions here and there. Still, you have to devise means of getting people’s attention for your affiliate marketing business.
Thriving businesses and individuals fully understand that they need attention to survive. Without it, there is no customer, sales, gigs, revenue, or profits.
You need people’s attention to read your adverts. You need people’s attention to read your newsletters. You need people’s attention to drive traffic to your blog, and sales page.
There are some ways to get people’s attention. You have to be intentional about it. You can build an informational blog around the affiliate marketing niche you are promoting. You do some SEO research to discover keywords with high search volume and create compelling informational articles to provide people with solutions.
You can also get attention by being active on social media, online forums, and Quora actively sharing helpful content.
After gaining attention, then you can convert it to traffic.
Traffic is the second most important thing you need to make serious money from affiliate marketing. You need the traffic to grow your blog. You need traffic to sell products on your sales pages. You need traffic for whatever affiliate product you are marketing.
If you own a blog for your affiliate marketing, you have to employ strategies to keep those people whom you have got their attention to keep coming. You need to be creating compelling content regularly. You need to engage your blog readers in the comment section. You need to ask about their problems if they need any form of assistance.
Furthermore, you have to employ working SEO strategies like keyword analytics and research to know the kind of information people need.
Also, you have to build backlinks to your blog. You can write guest posts on other authority blogs. You can leave comments on several ones.
If you can build and get the traffic, you can finally convert everything to the audience.
The audience is the third most important thing you need to make serious money from affiliate marketing. All the previously mentioned two things are leading you to this final thing.
If you get people’s attention, build traffic to your blog, create good content to keep them coming, and engage them well, they will become your audience.
After that, you shouldn’t stop at having them as mere audience. You will build an email list. Add a pop-up call to action form on your blog to tell readers to subscribe in order not to miss any updates. Once you set up your email list, keep your eyes on it to see if your blog readers are signing up or not, and keep tracking the results.
As your mailing list is growing, you can start promoting affiliate offers to your subscribers. If you have 100,000 subscribers, 50% read your offer, and 10% out of the 50% buy what you promote–that’s 5000. Now, multiply by the amount of your commission. That’s serious money.
The beautiful thing is there is no limit. You can grow your mailing list more and more. You can strategically promote more products to them and make serious money.
