What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is a business model where you get paid a commission for referring someone to a merchant who eventually makes a purchase.
So in other words you sign up for a seller’s affiliate program and then send people who may be interested in what the seller is selling to the seller through your unique link which is called an affiliate link (it helps track what sales and customers came from you).
If a purchase is made, you earn a certain percentage as an affiliate commission.
You in this system are called an affiliate marketer.
So basically, the work of an affiliate marketer is to promote a product to people who are most likely to make a purchase and he or she earn.
The beauty is that you don’t need to have a product or worry about support or linguistics as this is handled completely by the seller.
Most sellers will even go as far as following up with the leads using various methods and you still get to earn.
Depending on the product you are promoting, you may keep earning recurrent commissions, one-time commission, a fixed amount per sale and most of the time a percentage commission.
Now I guess you know enough, so let’s proceed.
My Effective Affiliate Marketing Strategy in 2022
Alright, as I said earlier, there are a lot of approaches but I want to teach you this which is guaranteed to produce long-lasting results.
So without wasting any more time, let’s dive into it.
Getting the Product Right
This is a very important aspect for this strategy to work and if you get it wrong, it will definitely affect the rate of success.
Most people actually just pick a product and then promote it without data to validate that it will sell.
They are prompted by faith. However, in this strategy, we want someone more guaranteed.
We want a blockbuster.
So we are actually going to search for products that have sold a lot already. My favourite place for looking for affiliate products to promote is ClickBank.
You can quickly head straight to ClickBank.com and create an account, afterwards, you can see a wide category of products you can promote and make good money.
However, despite the fact that money can be made from any of the niche categories available, I will always advise you to stick with power 3 which are:
- Health and fitness
- Business and make money
- Self Development
The reason is that there is every green market that will always be in demand even in years to come.
How Do You Get High Ticket Closers?
Furthermore, it is easy to come across a down-sell and upsell to make more money for yourself.
Another tip is you will want to pick what is popularly called high ticket products. For instance, if you are going for products paying 50% commission on all sales, it will be best if you look for products that cost anywhere from $300 to $1500 so that you get to earn from $150 to $750.
One mistake I see starters in affiliate marketing make is the feeling that it will be easier getting people to buy a low-end product than a high ticket product. This is not absolutely true.
With the niches I recommended earlier, a high ticket is a sure way to your monthly target earning.
Take, for instance, Mr A is promoting a product of $30 and Mr B is promoting a product of $400.
If both vendors pay an affiliate commission of 50%, it automatically translates to $15 per sale for Mr A and $200 per sale for Mr B.
Now see where the magic comes in, it will take Mr A 100 sales to make $1500 per month while it takes Mr B about 8 sales to make that same amount.
Now you tell me, 8 high ticket sales and 100 low ticket sales, which do you actually think is easier.
It’s a no brainer… It’s 8 high ticket sales
Alright, let’s move on.
Understanding Clickbank Gravity – Bigger is Not Better
While on the ClickBank product marketplace, I want you to use the sorting filter. Pick on the gravity options. This will arrange the product in an order that places the most sold products at the top.
I want you to pick from the top products the more you wish to promote.
Here is another mistake affiliate marketers make when they are just getting started.
They ignore products with a lot of sales under the excuse of either the product as being oversold or the competition will be too and they go for less sold products hoping to dominate it.
I don’t see products with the most sales as a sign of competition. Instead it echos to me “there is a lot of money to be made here”.
The fact that others are making money promoting that product equally means you can make money promoting them as well.
So as a rule, pick and promote only products that have sold relatively well compared to others in the marketplace.
Remember, we want something guaranteed. Now we have our product, let’s move on to the next stage.
Drive Traffic To The Product
Without traffic, no sale will be made and that automatically translates to no commission.
We don’t want that, so we will drive a lot of targeted traffic at our offer.
By saying targeted traffic, I simply mean sending people who stand a high chance of being interested in what we are selling.
Yeah, for instance, if you are promoting a dog training course and you send people who don’t have dogs or don’t even plan on having dogs to the product, there is no way you are going to make a sale.
It doesn’t even matter if you send 9000 of such people to the page, you are most likely not going to make any sale because the traffic is not qualified.
So we want to actually find people who are interested in what we are promoting and market the product to them.
Now let’s dive into a series of ways you can do so.
Use Social Media
Yes, social media is so powerful and one of the most fantastic ways of driving qualified traffic to an offer.
If you don’t have a reasonable number of followers on your social media handles to promote to, that should not be a problem as there is a quick solution to that problem.
Here is it, simply search out for other profiles that got your target audience on their following and check if they will allow other people’s posts on their wall.
An easy way to do this on Instagram is to go to the search bar and search for “dm to promo”.
This will present you with a huge list of people who accept promoting on their timeline and you can then filter those that have your target audience and reach out to them.
If you are looking for an easy way to get social media influencers to promote your affiliate product for you, then you definitely check out Shoutcart.
Shoutcart is a social media promotion marketplace where you actually get to meet influencers, get necessary information about them and their following as well as pay them to promote your products.
It is a really cool website and you get to meet a ton of influencers.
The first thing you may want to do is pick an influencer in your niche market and this is very easy as they are already being categorised.
As a tip, I would say you check out for influencers with a lot of engagements on their handles instead of following.
For instance, a Facebook influencer may have a million followers but very low engagement, which doesn’t make sense.
Also, check out the past reviews other people have dropped to influence your buying decision.
Use Udimi Solo Ads
Udimi is a solo ads buying platform, if you are not familiar with the term solo ads, it is basically paying others to promote your likes to their list.
This can be an email list, messenger list or even web visitors as the case may be.
So you are typically paying per click.
With Udimi, you can purchase as many clicks as you want to your affiliate link and I bet you will make some sales.
The price however varies based on the solo ads seller and the niche your product is relevant to.
Generally, the same rules apply, you would want a solo ads seller who has a targeted Audience relevant to what you are promoting.
And that’s it, red hot affiliate marketing strategies to make a killing in 2022.
I don’t really know your plan but one thing is sure, knowing this won’t put the money in your account.
However, implementing it will. So don’t just know, act. It’s quite straightforward and if you follow my strategies, you’re definitely going to make a hell of a lot of affiliate commissions.
Thanks for reading to the end, you want to start affiliate marketing with zero investment.
