Affiliate Marketing Simplified For Beginner Marketers
In order to run a success affiliate marketing campaign there are several vital factors that must be included.
Firstly, you will need to build a mailing list or opt in list, there is no point in driving traffic straight to an affiliated offer, sure you might make a sale, but then what?
The product owner has the buyer on the list and you will probably never have contact with them again.
So first, you drive the traffic or visitors to your squeeze page, then direct them to the affiliate offer.
You can of course do this immediately by placing a banner or link on your autoresponder thank you page.
Or you can simply place several follow up messages into your autoresponder sequence and specify a specific time period for them to be automatically sent out to your subscribers.
Secondly, you will need a web page, or squeeze page to place your opt in code onto.
Plain squeeze pages are highly effective and can be designed using a free html editor, or you can access free squeeze templates online simply by searching on google or yahoo etc.
Once you have your squeeze page designed it has to be uploaded to the internet for people to see it obviously.
Therefore you will need web hosting, which can be relatively cheap, around $7 per month and you will need to purchase a domain name too.
Your domain name should of course contain relevant keywords to your affiliated product.
Now that you have all of these vital components in place, you simply have to drive free or paid traffic to your page.
Affiliate marketing does not have to be complicated, all you need is an enticing offer and traffic to make sales.
Once you begin to receive a good amount of traffic you can then begin split testing results to further increase the effectiveness of your affiliate campaign.
