You keep on reading that affiliate marketing is an easy way to make money and when you start looking into promoting a particular product, you’re impressed with the large commissions that are being paid and you proceed to join that affiliate program with dollar signs in your eyes.
The reality of what it takes to promote this offer you’ve joined soon sets in with a four letter word … W O R K!
Yes, the job of an affiliate is to recommend, not to sell, the product – so you set up a website or blog with a suitable domain name – meaning a name that matches the product name – and write an article that includes a link designed to encourage your readers to visit the product sales page.
But you get very few clicks on the link and no follow-through! What’s the problem?
You’re told that the blog you set up to promote your product needs to be promoted in order to get visitors, but how? By writing some posts and re-writing some of those posts as articles you will submit to Article Directories and the resource box you add to each article will encourage readers to visit your blog.
You need to visit forums that allow you to add a signature to the helpful posts you’re writing to get involved with the members. You also need to approach some blogs about writing guest posts for them to boost traffic to your blog … My oh my, that is a lot of writing! a lot of work!
I will be sharing a very helpful report on the subject of promoting affiliate offers in the next couple of days (most affiliate marketers do promote more than one product!)
In the meantime I want to talk about Easy Article Starters!
Easy Article Starters is a product sold by prolific PLR writer Peggy Baron and I love using them! What is so great about these article starters is that you write your own articles!
The package you buy consists of three parts:
Here is an example provided by Peggy Baron:
Making Money With Your Writing Skills Online … Do a new title with your keywords
Intro: If you have the ability to write, there are quite a few different areas you could specialize in when you decide to offer your services online … Add your keywords to the intro. Add another sentence or two, or reword what’s there.
Body: (add details to each suggestion, such as what it is, where to learn it, what tools are needed to get started,etc.)
* technical writing
*article, ebook, or report rewriting
*blogging for others
*article marketing for others
*InfoBarrel or the like
*ad copy writing
*speech or toast writer
The body is where you expand on the points. In this case you will want to give more info on each. Briefly explain what a ghostwritier does, how much they can earn, how they learn their craft and anything else you want to say.
Conclusion: Many online marketers are begging for those who can help them with the various writing aspects of their business. If you’re a good writer, then these opportunities are for you.
Take the conclusion and add to it to fit with what you just said in the body.
I have previously written about the advantages of using PLR (Private Label Rights) there’s no question that PLR articles are a big help especially since they can be bought at reasonable prices in so many different markets, but of course to get the maximum benefit you do need to rewrite the articles or spin them.
Your package of Easy Starters can be used again when you come up with different ideas for reusing the suggestions, and the articles you write are yours to submit anywhere!
