Affilate Marketing – The Guide Lines

Posted by Benjamin Close on June 25, 2009 under Money | Read the First Comment

Over the last few months, I’ve been doing a bit of research into Affiliate marketing. For those that don’t know, affiliate marketing is the process of selling a merchant’s goods with you doing the advertising. 

Sounds simple enough and there is a number of great programs out there that make affiliate marketing a breeze. However, the more you read, the more you discover there is a set sequence to create a website which ends up being profitable with affiliate marketing.

The steps, as nicely writting up in a document from sitesell.com (http://www.ezau.com/dl/AffMasters.pdf) seem to be:

  1. Work out a topic your interested in which is a niche area
  2. Work out targeted keywords to the topic your interested in
  3. Work out your competition and affiliates for the topic your interested in
  4. Register a domain name & start building your website using search engine optimised (SEO) methods
  5. Promote your website via back links

Sounds simple really. Though in practice it must take a lot of time.  I can see how once you have high traffic to a site and GOOD content you get visitors. Clearchain for instance slowly has seen traffic increasing and likewise the amount of clicks and therefore revenue increase – and Clearchain isn’t even designed to be a niche site, more a blog of various things that the people of Clearchain work on.

Hence it’s now time to try out the info I’ve read. Introducing WattsitUse.com, the niche site related to evaluating anything power related.
