Affiliate Business : Ten Checklists for Your Success
While it can be quite easy to start an online business, not all people make a success. How then successful business man/woman could make it? Every successful business has its own story, however, there are some common factors that make a business hard to fell down.
Here is ten checklist that help you to be successful.
1. Set a goal
Without a goal, a success is driven just by chance and it's very low. Your ultimate goal is generating substantial income from your site. But how much? If you're an affiliate business starter, don't set too much: otherwise you'll be depressed. For each site I built and going to build, my firs goal is to earn about $500 a month. For some people, this may sound too small or may not. But in reality to reach $500 within 2 month is a success.
Build more than one content site. This is what most of affiliates do. Let's say you build 10 niche web sites. This will make you $5,000 a month.
2. Make a plan
A plan makes your work be organized. Building an affiliate site within two month is a descent plan. Within the first month, do a research to find profitable keywords, affiliate programs, and some resources to which you can refer when you write content pages. And within the second month write one article every day. At the end of second month you will have keyword rich contents armored with affiliate program. And publish it by obtaining domain name and web hosting company.
3. Set a budget
While you can start an affiliate business even without investing any penny, it is recommended to make a descent investment. We all know that something for nothing mentality eventually doesn't work.
Inevitable investment is for the domain name and web hosting.
If you are a starter, purchase Ken Evoy's "Site Build It!" package. It includes everything you need so that it will shorten your learning time and help you earn income through online. The more details can you find at www.mikino.com
If you have a choice other than the "Site Build It!", it is ok but consider that you still need invest at least $300 for registering domain name, contract with hosting company, etc.. If you want to earn money, you have got to use your money first.
4. Check your lifeblood
What is lifeblood for affiliate, by the way? Many affiliates agree on the following things.
Your web page should be focused on keywords, which bring you traffic. And then you want convert it to the affiliate program link or to sale your own products. What the good informative contents is doing is to keep the traffic flowing to your site (even to increase it) and to make the conversion rate high.
Side note: If you are not familiar with the words, profitable keyword and contents, and don't know how to choose a good affiliate program, please download Affiliate Masters Course" (Free Ebook) and read it through.
5. Prepare what to say befor you write content page
If you don't know what you're going to tell, how about your reader? You know the content should be informative because people look for information. But what kind of information are you providing? Eventually, all the information boils down to ask an action, to buy your product or to go to your merchant site, right? So, organize your information to conclude the action. Here again the keyword and affiliate program comes into significant role. Determine what keyword you're going to use and what affiliate program you're going to suggest and then start writing.
6. Don't forget PREselling
One of most frequent mistakes is to write a content to sell something. This is so to speak 'Buy me!' slogan. But what you have to do is to use 'Love me!' slogan. People tend to skeptical when they see 'Buy me!' slogan. Give them the information what they were looking for, and guide them by providing suggestions and recommendations to the affiliated product. This so called PREselling strategy and it will make your visitors love your site, maybe you as well. : )
7. Build targeted traffic
After 2 months hard working, finally you published an affiliate site. Do the people know about your site? Afraid not! Though you made a step to the online world, you actually are in isolated island. Let your potential visitors come to your site by promoting your site.
You can promote your site either paying money or without paying any dime. I prefer and suggest not to pay any penny for this matter except buying an ebook to learn how to increase targeted traffic. The foremetioned free ebook "Affiliate Masters Course" can be a good starting point for you.
8. Make yourself determined
Let's say, for 2 months you had built an affiliate site and submitted to the open directory and major search engines. You hoped a substantial traffic. But sadly, just tens of visitors a day. What are you going to do? Announce a failure and depress yourself? You know successful people won't do that.
Most of affiliates say it takes at least 4 months to build a substantial targeted traffic. So be patient. And instead being frustrated, check your site whether something can be improved.
9. Time management
As an affiliate, you're a web master, content writer, copywriter, and top manager. Moreover, you'll own several sites. Thus you're a web master of several sites, etc.. Sounds good? There is a problem, though.
How can you manage your time?
It would be nice for you to set aside tedious job and to focus on managing your sites. One way to do that is hiring your assistant. The other way is to purchase Ken Evoy's "Site Build It!" It helps you spend your precious time efficiently.
10. Stay yourself up to date
The most important aspect of online marketing is that it is ever changing. Search engine listing policy is changing, new affiliate program is emerging, etc....
To make yourself up to date:
In the section, 3.set a budget and 9.time management, "SBI" is introduced, feel free to add your affiliate link if you have one, as long as the other content and resource box are intact. You can omit this part when you use this artile. --------------------------------------------------
