Affiliate Marketing Cash – 3 Ways To Rake In Affiliate Profits Without A Website

One of the great things about affiliate marketing is that it is extremely easy to get started with. Anyone can get started in affiliate marketing, even if they don’t have technical knowledge or do not know how to set up a website. Here are 3 incredibly simple ways to make affiliate profits without owning a website!

#1: Pay per click marketing

The Google Cash method was made famous in 2005. The concept was simple, alluring and very profitable: advertise your direct affiliate link on Google Adwords. It’s a method that anyone can get started with in under an hour. This method isn’t as effective as before because of competition on pay per click search engines, but it is still quite profitable when executed in the right manner.

#2: Article marketing

Article marketing involves writing lean, informative articles and submitting them to various article directories on the web. Doing so allows you to tap into the huge website traffic these directories get on a daily basis. Some article directories don’t allow you to link directly to your affiliate product in your resource box, but you can set up a redirect from your own domain name to your affiliate link. This is one of the best zero cost ways to get started making your first affiliate commission!

#2: Craigslist and US Free Ads

Craiglist and US Free Ads are online classified ads sites that are superbly effective in driving highly targeted visitors to your link! Whenever someone is surfing through these sites, they are looking for offers that interest them. This means highly targeted prospects. You are not allowed to advertise your affiliate link directly on Craigslist, but you can link to a website or blog that has your link.

Marketing – Do You Make this Direct Mail Mistake?

Like most business owners, I get a lot of direct mail from other businesses.

And I’ve noticed that a lot of these mailings make one big mistake – they don’t make an offer.

By “offer” I don’t necessarily mean a discount or a special concession, what I mean is something for me to respond to (i.e. direct response advertising).

I’ll give you an example:

I received a letter last week from a local printer I had never heard of.

(I can’t remember their name, I’ve already thrown the letter away)

They basically said “hello” and told me they’d be “happy to take care of my printing needs”.

(you know this type of letter, you’ve received letters like this yourself)

Now, this means nothing to me.

I’m not on some “printers’ blacklist” where I struggle to find printers who’d agree to take my business. As long as I’m willing to pay their fee, any printer in town is going to be happy to do business with me.

So, all I know about this particular printer is what I already know about every printer in town: that they’d like my business. I don’t know anything about how they compare in the areas that matter to me:

e.g.

price

speed of service

quality of printing

quality of design

So, there was nothing in the letter that had value for me.

I have no reason to respond positively to this printer and my response was simply “so what?”

(actually it was “poor guy, he probably got some bad marketing advice”)

So, my advice to anyone who’s thinking of doing a mailing is to ask themselves “what am I offering here” before they send anything out.

Because, if you’re not offering something of value to the reader, his response is probably going to be somewhere between “so what?” and “who cares?”

The notion that he’s going to file away the letter so that, at some point in the future, he can put in the time and effort to find out if you’ve got something special to offer, is fanciful.

It makes a lot more sense to give him this information right up front and, if he believes he might benefit from your services in the future, he’s more likely to file the letter… and call you first once he’s in the market.

One of the key features I look at when I critique marketing materials (particularly sales letters & adverts) for my clients is the offer.

The first 3 questions are:

Is there an offer?

Is the offer clear?

Does the reader know how to respond?

You’d be amazed how many sales letters (or flyers or ads) fail on just these basics… and the business wonders why they get few or no responses.

Use Direct Communication on Your Site

You should also use some kind of direct communication on your site. Because we are all human, you have to use some kind of direct communication that is human orientated besides words in order to get their attention or to keep their attention. We are human, we want to interact. We want to hear somebody’s voice. I suggest that you use audio of some sort, whether you are using an audio player or you record your own audio and put your own button up there or use some third party service, it does not matter. Or you can use video, if you can make a video of yourself and put it up there, great, there are a lot of third party services out there that will let you do video, or you can hire somebody else to do it for you. If not a video of yourself, do a video of somebody else. Anything of the sort like that is direct communication that has a human voice.

I also suggest to put your picture up there. People want to see who they are dealing with. I have seen a lot of landing pages without pictures, I put my picture on there, I always have and I notice different results when I have my picture on there and when I have it off. It is just more friendly. It is more human interaction. And always, the whole purpose of the landing page, do not get caught up in the graphics, do not get caught up in the whole makeover of your landing page. You want to get the headline, maybe a few lines or a paragraph, then make sure you have brighter colors there. And then you want to tell them what you want them to do. You want to tell them I want you to put your name or email address in so that I can give you something else, so that you can give them more information or whatever it is.

Just say, simply fill in your information below, your name and email address and that is it. You have to tell them what you want them to do. And then they are looking for more information still on what you told them from the first tiny little ad that you have them click through, they are looking for more information on your only two level instant pay program and why I should join. So guess what your auto responder series should be talking about, your only two level instant pay program and why you should join. Where can I get the information from, and if you are unable to write this out go to your sales page. If the program has a sales page get the information from the sales page. It literally, and this is a little trick from affiliate marketing that we have been using for a few years now, if you have a good sales page, each sub headline down the sales page is a title of an email, you can edit it a little bit.

But, you can use that as the title of an email. Then the body part of that under the headline until the next sub headline is their email. We have literally, with the affiliate programs while selling different things, we have literally gone down the page and got six or seven or ten emails out of a sales page, literally taking that sub headline and making it a subject line. And literally taking the body under that and making it an email and then signed off by see you on the next email in a couple of days and then sign your name with a link to you site. It is that easy. Can you write your own email, yes, if you want to, great. But some of us that cannot write emails can certainly get the information off of the sales page.

One thing is that you should write the way you talk, there is no magical thing like this is the magical word that will get you ten thousand sales, that is not the key, just write how you talk. And not full of a bunch of hype that people have heard for the past few years. People get immune to that stuff and it just does not work anymore. In this day and age it is kind of easier with all the scammers and everything online to generate sales if you lie and people believe you and they buy from you. That is why it is so important to have some voice on the site, some kind of video, some kind of human interaction on the site. And that is about it for pay per click initially.

Now you are probably wondering, and all of this is covered in the videos in our back office, we tell you how to get conversion rates and how to get your quality score up and different things of that sort, I am not going to go over it now because it is better taught in the videos. Now, I am going to give you some results that you can get from pay per click and like a plan of action that you can use in pay per click campaigns from whether you join a program today, anytime in the future, no matter where you are at now, you can always count on this type of plan, no matter what you are doing. If you choose to master pay per click, you can apply it in any future programs, products or anything you want to sell on the internet. You do not have to just stick with mlm companies or their products, you can find any products that you want on the internet or make up your own to sell and you can use the same strategy.
