I am going to show you a straightforward strategy that anyone can apply. This strategy will help beginners in affiliate marketing start working online and start making money to scale up. It is a quick and easy process that requires a few steps, so keep reading to find out what they are.
You’re worried about having no skills and no money, but you want to work online; what do you do? Well, I put myself in your shoes and created this case study to show you how it’s possible to start from zero and scale up using my strategy, which got me 2 conversions, not in 3 or 4 weeks (which I was counting on), but the first 2 days!
I will explain the process in detail to apply this strategy today and start making conversions instantly. Stay tuned to find out how you too can Implement it, or feel free to check out my YouTube video. Without any further ado, let's get into it.
What Is This Strategy And How To Apply It?
First, I will share with you the idea behind this strategy, how I came up with it, and how to apply it so that you can make conversions by just clicking on a few links. After analyzing my case study results, I have deduced 2 factors responsible for achieving these fast conversions that I will also share with you near the end of the article. I am going to list the steps below then explain them in detail. You can apply this same strategy in your own way and start your affiliate marketing business online.
1. Publish an article on your blog.
2. In the article, promote multiple affiliate products (in my case, I chose 2).
3. Get traffic to your article.
In brief, you need to create an article promoting multiple products and get traffic to this article. Don't worry about not having a website as you can start a free one on sites like Blogger.com, WordPress.com, and more, which I will also go over soon.
How I Created My Article
I published my article on my blog and got 29 views in 3 days. I wrote this article to use for this affiliate marketing strategy. It is about a comparison between 2 products: SendinBlue and GetResponse. Both are email marketing services. Anyone reading the article can learn about the products and decide which one to choose to buy. This is the mentality behind reading this article. I was shocked and amazed that for just 29 views on my article, I got 2 conversions!
Throughout the article, I am linking to the two services using my affiliate links. At the end of the article, there are two buttons to click on the link of the product you choose and start it for free. So whichever the reader chooses, they will be subscribing to the affiliate product that I am promoting. The power of the article lies in this.
To put it simply, you need to think about how you’re going to create an article that promotes and compares 2 or more affiliate products. As a result, no matter which product your readers choose, you are earning money!
How To Write The Article?
Even if you are worried that you lack the skills or experience for writing such articles and reviews, there is an easy way so that anyone can do it. You can research for another comparison article on Google about the 2 products you want and rewrite it in your own words. I wrote my article from scratch because my goal is unique content, but this is a good way to learn how to do it independently as a beginner.
Where Do I Publish My Article?
After writing the article, you need to publish it. Don't worry about not having a website; you can create a free account with any of these sites:
4. Google Sites.
Choose any of the sites on the list to create a blog to publish your articles, and you don't even have to pay anything! For example, you can make a web page on google sites, then add text, images, buttons, or anything you want.
How To Promote Your Article And Get Traffic?
After you have completed the steps of writing your article and publishing it on the web page you made, you need to promote your article.
To get traffic, you need to target the right audience. This means people who are interested and who are looking for these products intending to decide between them. This is very simple and straightforward, so this type of article in itself has higher conversion rates. You can use this same strategy and choose things you know about and are interested in. You can also check comments on your blog and follow up with people's feedback. It is all up to you, but the important thing is to apply this strategy.
Choose two products, write the article, and sign up for one of the affiliate programs. For example, I signed up for GetResponse. The conversion with GetResponse is recurring, so that I will earn a commission every month. Moreover, with SendinBlue, for example, you can get a commission on full account creation. This means that every time someone creates an account on SendinBlue using your link, you will earn 5 euros ($7.00-8.00). These numbers may seem small, but if you apply this strategy, you can get conversions and make $50 to $100 the first month!
The goal is to scale up and improve, so you can use it as a budget to invest in a professional website or paid ads, and so on. Using this strategy, you can start from zero, promoting these affiliate products without paying anything and make money. In my case, I am subscribed to the GetResponse and SendinBlue affiliate programs. Both are email marketing services.
To generate traffic
You can go to Quora and search for these products. For example, search “Best Email Marketing Services“ or products related to mental health, dieting, or any other product that you are promoting. After searching for questions related to the products you are promoting, you can open these questions, answer them, and then link your article to it (just copy and paste the URL).
A brief note about spam: to avoid being blocked or banned by Quora, you need to avoid spamming your affiliate links. To avoid this, try to nest a link in one out of every 10 questions you answer. This way, you don't come across as a pushy salesman or spammer while still reaping your efforts' rewards fair and square.
The reason I chose Quora is that people there are asking questions and looking for answers. This way, you are giving them the solution that they are looking for. They will then click on the link and read your article because they want help deciding what to choose. There is a very high chance they will buy the product, and you will earn a commission. It's that simple.
You have searched for an article, rewritten that article comparing 2 or more products, published it on the free website you made and promoted it using Quora.
How To Be Successful Online?
Now that you have your two products, you have created a comparison article about them and promoted them. Now let’s talk about the 2 factors I mentioned at the beginning that you need to keep in mind to be successful online.
These 2 factors are patience and hard work. Hard work doesn't necessarily mean working for 10 hours a day; it could be just 1 hour. However, it needs to be invested properly. Put a lot of thought into your work, use your mind, passion, and work from the heart. Don't do things monotonously. Do real work and give it all you got! That is the only way to get results.
You won't know unless you try
Many of you won't try this because of laziness or lack of motivation. But I urge you to go and start applying this strategy today. You will not regret it. You have a high chance of successfully working online using this strategy to scale up and start your own online business.
In my next post, I will show you how to promote the same article using paid advertising like Facebook, Quora Ads, and Native ads. I will explain to you 3 strategies showing you how to run paid advertising to promote articles and get commissions with affiliate marketing.
