Quick question for you,how many of you have triedout affiliate marketing?If you have, leave acomment below with Yes. If you haven’t, leave acomment below with No. Now here’s the best-kept secret. It does work. Affiliate marketing doesn’twork as well as it used to,but it still does work. You just have to change the way,and here’s what I mean. Affiliates used to make an arm and a legby just throwing off Facebookads, or Google AdWords,driving traffic to landingpage and crushing it. Now, it doesn’t mean youcan’t make more money. It was just easier back then,but there’s a new way to make moneythat most affiliates take for granted. It’s through SEO,and if you optimize your siteand rank really well organically,you can dominate, and you can keep gettingmore and more revenue coming in. And here’s the best part,you don’t have to pay traffic. Sure, it takes longer toget results than it used to,but your margins, yourprofit is way higher. So, let’s go over how you can doreally well as an affiliate in 2019. Step 1, I want you to go toall the affiliate networkswithin the verticals you’re thinking of. Here’s what I mean, verticalsthat you’re thinking of,if you’re being a marketerto just make money,you’re going to find ahard time making money. If you’re doing somethingyou’re passionate about,you’re going to be much better offbecause you’ll put in the time and effortthat’s needed to succeed. So go and think about what you love,and go to any of those affiliate sites,like a ClickBank. com,and you can see what arethe most popular products,what are their payouts in my space?This will give you ideas of whatpeople are selling to make money. If you’re unsure andyou land on these sites,you can also call their support people,and they’ll even walk youthrough and give you adviceon what products orservices you should promote. The next thing I want you to do is just dosome Google searches relatedto those products or services. You’ll see all the other peoplewho are ranking for those terms. Now, I want you to createa list of all those URLs. The next thing I want you to do is headon over to Ubersuggest andput in each of those URLs. This will show you where allof those sites are getting traffic from. That report that you just landed onwhen you put in that URLis an overview report. It’ll show you someone’straffic, their top pages,all the keywords that they’re ranking for. The next thing I want you to dois click on over to Top Pages. This page will show youtheir most popular pieces of content,even their most popular pages,the ones that are ranking on Google,the ones that aregetting the most traffic. When you look at that page,it’ll show you social shares,and it’ll show you estimated trafficand the number of back-links. Click the View All buttonunder estimated traffic. This will show you all the keywords thatthat page is getting traffic for,show you how many visitorsfrom each keyword,the ranking positions,and how competitive it isfor that keyword to rank organically. They keywords you wantto rank for and look forare the ones that have high traffic,the ones that are expensivein cost-per-click,and have an easy or a lowsearch difficulty number. The easier it is, the quickeryou’re going to get ranking,and when a keyword is expensive,higher-cost-per-click,that means it tends to convertmore from a visitor into a customer. Now that you’ve got that out of the way,the next thing you want to do is lookto all the people that havelinked to that article. This will give you dataon how many back-linksthese articles are getting. Now that you’ve done all of that,the next step in the process is to dothis with the rest of the competitors. Once you’ve done that,you’ll figure out what typesof pieces of content you shouldcreate to get the most traffic’cause not all sitescreate the same content. Even though they’re competing,they all have differentspins and variations on it. This will give you the frameworkof what you should do last. The last thing you needto do is go out thereand create the content and promote it. You already have ideas on theway your competition is doing. You already know what’sdriving them traffic. It’s time for you to one-up themand create betterversions of their content. They have a 2,000-word post. Go make yours four or 5,000 words. Put video in there, put pictures,just one-up and make ’em so much better,everyone’s like, “I don’t needa check out any other site. “Neil’s done such an amazing job,”or John’s done such an amazing job,”or Jill’s done such a great job. “You need to go above andbeyond so people careabout what you have to say,and they don’t want to careabout any other site within that space. When you create this content,you also need to promote it. The way you promote it is youemail all the other peoplewho linked to yourcompetition and be like,Hey John, I noticed you linkedout to XY and Z article. I have a similar one that just came outbut mine covered 1, 2,and 3 that theirs didn’t. Cheers, Neil. You send 100, two, 300 of those emails,you’ll start getting back-links. You can do the samething with all the peoplewho shared that article fromyour competition as well. I put that article intosearch. twitter. com,and I see who’s shared that article. I’ll even reach out to those people. When you start doingthat, what you’ll find isyou’ll get traffic to your articles,and just like any otheraffiliate marketer,you can’t forget promoting other offers. Remember how step 1 isgoing to the networks,finding the other products and servicesin your space that pay out well.
