Find your niche
The internet is a very broad spectrum of information, chances are if you go to google and begin searching for one thing you end up finding something totally irrelevant to your original search. This is why it is very important to find your special niche, It’s up to you and your ideas to lead a potential visitor to the place there were searching for to begin with. You need to pick your niche and keep the most up to date relevant information on your website to assure your visitor will find the the right product or service they are looking for.
For example if your niche is sports choose just one, such as the NBA, the NFL, or pro Golf and so on, you can even break it down further such as shoes, jerseys etc, the more specific you are will improve your chances of getting the right visitors to your website.
Your Affiliate Product
You can only market your niche product in the best and most productive manner if you know your particular niche item in full detail. Once you pick your niche item research it in depth so you become the master of your niche, the time invest it will be very beneficial for you. Go to online stores, or blogs related to your niche and research the customer comments on the item, read everything you can about the item because your visitors can and often will ask you a lot of info on the product.
Know the pros and cons of the product, I prefer to order one of the items I am going to market so I have real life on hands experience with the items. You never know when someone may give a negative review to intentionally discourage people from a product, if you have one it is very easy to agree with or discredit that review or concern a visitor may inquire about.
The Use of Article Marketing
Make use of article marketing to help build your online reputation, you can get your niche to a lot greater height with article marketing you need to make a common post that is first very informative on your niche, maybe research and give a review on other comparable items. The most important thing is not to take the work someone else has done the research on and try to make it your own.
Read, read, read then once you are comfortable with the updated knowledge on your niche sit and write your own post based on your research. You will soon discover reading and be learning from 5 different sites may only produce enough information for you to add maybe five points in a post. Be precise get the valuable information for your visitors. You want them to need to come to your website to get the best up to date information.
Search engines are your friend but be careful in what you do, they can also not like what you do. As an example do not rotate your post, your previous post can and will stay cached on search engines and when reused they realize what you are doing and it may actually hurt you. Don’t use anyone’s work other than yours as this can also be discouraging to search engines.
Using the Concept of Cloaking
As an affiliate marketer you can use link cloaking plugins to replace the long, complex and more often than not annoying links it can shorten links and keep everything on your post looking very neat. Some of the WordPress plugins can also track outbound clicks and even rotate your affiliate offers to help measure performance.
What link cloaking actually is? Link cloaking is a standard marketing technique used by affiliate marketers for legitimate tracking and data preservation.Regular affiliate links look cheap and deteriorate the value of your site. Certain data sets such as the referrer and affiliate ID and other unwanted information can be exposed way to easily. Sometimes third parties can use raw affiliate links to discover your traffic sources and other private information that you would not want to share with them.
In my opinion you need to hook up with an affiliate company where you receive free domain hosting the tools and training to create your own site so you are in control, use of the WordPress platform for a reasonable rate. The more training the better off you are, free tools help as well, do not plan on this being a get rich opportunity but rather the opportunity to create a solid foundation to build your new business on.
