Affiliate Marketing Revised

September 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Internet Marketing

OK, forget everything you know about affiliate marketing. The tactics of the past few years just don’t work anymore. If you play by the old rules, you will lose this game.

The promise

Unfortunately, you’ve been led to believe affiliate marketing is easy. This is partially true. There’s no doubt it’s easier than starting your own business. But starting your own business is really hard, so it’s all relative.

Here’s the ugly truth

The worst part is that the information you’ve received is all wrong. The first thing you’re taught is to pick some great products. Next to look for easy keywords to target. Then buy some keyword ads that send traffic to the product. And sit back and collect the profits. But this just won’t work!

Don’t bother with keywords

This method worked a couple years ago. But it’s just too competitive to use keywords now. So, throw it all away.

A brand new formula

All is not lost. Here’s a new method that works!

Start using CPA marketing

CPA stands for Cost Per Action. It’s far superior to product promotion. Because it doesn’t involve payment. You earn a commission for having them perform an “action”. Like completing a survey. And getting them to do this is so much easier.

Utilize demographics data

Don’t waste time researching keywords (see below). So spend your time doing demographics research. First, select the CPA offer you want to promote. Then hop over to Quantcast.com. And find your target demographic.

Do image ad marketing

Now you have your offer and your demographics. You can target these exact demographics on display networks. And use images as your ads. And there was no keyword research required. And you’ll save a fortune. Image ad clicks are much cheaper.

Summary

This is a great way to make money fast. Because it’s free to get started in CPA. You can buy image ad clicks for a fraction of keyword ad clicks. You can use demographics to target your ideal prospect. And you get paid for having them take a simple action.
