Ready to take out the guesswork?
I was. As an extremely frustrated but ready to make money online individual, I needed someone to take the guesswork out. The best affiliate marketing programs? Beginners usually have no clue where to start. I didn’t. I knew of affiliate marketing, however with sooo many programs out there, how do you sift through them all?
The process of finding the right affiliate can be broken down by asking yourself a couple of questions.
- Who does my website target?
- How can I help my target audience?
- How can I leverage the help I am providing with affiliates?
Who does my website target?
Let’s examine the first question a little more in-depth because in answering this question, we begin to understand what will drive people to visit our website. What are people searching for when they are Googling information on whatever your website is targeting? Once you understand the motivating search factors, you will be able to aptly answer question number two.
How can I help my target audience?
Let’s face the facts. No one likes to be sold anything. Seriously. That’s why people despise going to car dealerships. We want what we want not what someone sells us. Helping people should come naturally to human beings. It’s how we were created. Sadly some people lose sight of this over time. I’m not one of that number and it is a position that has served me well. I found that by offering people true help they are much more likely to listen to what you have to say. Provide them with the information that they are seeking and then offer them the solution to their issue.

How can I leverage the help I am providing with affiliates?
An obvious byproduct of the help that you offer the visitors of your website is guidance toward the solution to their problem. This is why selecting the proper affiliate program for your website niche is so critical. People will know if what you are representing is worth a hill of beans. Hey it’s the information age! Guess what? Counter intelligence is readily available.
You are what you represent.
People are spending their time on your website not for whatever product you are peddling, but for the information, guidance and help you are offering. Guess what else? Google knows this now. If every page of your website is filled with sales pitches and a million affiliate links your website will suffer in the rankings.
Ranking on the first couple pages of search engine results will be critical in the success of your website. Unless you have a strong locally established following, chances are you will need to generate your own traffic. People will not even catch a whiff of your website if you are consistently showing up on page 99 of the results. So how do you get those rankings? For more information on that Click Here. Understanding how search engines “think” in today’s internet era is vital.
Answering those three simple questions and understanding getting ranked will put you way ahead of the curve. By implementing the strategies that are present throughout this website, you will begin to see much more success as your website becomes more user and search engine friendly.
