Affiliate Marketing Internet Jobs and Blogger Empire

Many people are trying to work from home, doing internet marketing. Making Money Online is an Art not a Contest and time is the most important ingredient to ensure success. Affiliate Marketing is growing in popularity as one of the favourite Online Marketing Jobs. But to Make Money Online as a successful Affiliate Marketer you must follow a proven sequence to success, outlined in this article.

Not many people succeed in making money online, even with some of the best work from home jobs it may prove much easier said than done. There is a sequence that eventually leads to creating a website of your own, regardless of the rumours that you don’t need one. It may be true that you don’t need a website to make money online as an affiliate marketer, but it sure makes a huge difference if you have. Affiliate Marketing is a derivative of Internet Marketing, and understanding the logic of how to make money from home as an affiliate marketer is important. There are three basic steps to follow toward success and building an internet empire, and a willingness to learn is your most valuable tool. Keep it simple and take tiny steps because success is just tiny objective steps in the right direction. This is how to work your way toward building a profitable website.


Start With Keyword Research – You want to leverage Google by means of the best keywords and by doing that, get floods of visitors to your website interested in your offers. There are three different categories of keyword research and they are; Keywords, Keyword Phrases and Anchor Text. Keywords are single words best describing your niche, product and/or website. Keywords should be present in your domain name and website title, or any other title as a post or even an article and a comment. Keyword phrases is normally two to three words, and should populate your general content.

With article publishing you use keyword phrases in your article summary. The third tactic is Anchor Text, which is a longer phrase and usually four to six words. Anchor text is a search phrase often entered into web browsers searching for a specific product, and is a great way to boost actual sales. Anchor text must be in your content to compliment your keyword phrases, because these three tactics combined is what laser targeted buyer traffic is all about.

And On To Product Research – Once you have your keywords, keyword phrases and anchor text established and preferably saved as a Word or PDF File. Product Research is important and it must be based on the result of your Keyword Research, and that is the only real “secret” to actually making money online. There are various aspects to be considered with product research, and you must also know your level of competition because this is a numbers game. Even with keyword research you always aim at high volume and low to medium competition. Product research enable you to provide your audience with a product in demand that is specific to a particular audience’s search.

One important thing to focus on is that the product offer a money back guarantee, this is known to successful affiliate marketers as a “Back Door” and inspires trust. An important part of Product Research is actually purchasing and testing or using that which you intend to promote. Product knowledge is crucial to relevant, interesting and useful content. Content and Knowledge is the King and Queen of actual sales and making money online.

Starting Your Profitable Website and/or Blog – Only after proper keyword and product research will you be ready to publish, index and actually rank your website and/or Blog in Google. But what is a website exactly? A website is where your profits come from in many ways, promoting affiliate products and gaining email list subscribers. To be able to know how to make money from home will take time and will not be easy, but rest assured that it will be worth it. As mentioned earlier, populate your website content with your keyword search results for astonishing results. Your Home Page should be purely tutorial, and inspiring in nature because you never sell on your home page. Your website home page must focus on engagement, with interesting and helpful content inspiring a need to want to know more.

Tutorial Videos is a great way to prove to your audience you are professional and get recognised, which is why knowledge is so important. A separate Page must contain your affiliate offers, and the about page and contact me page is a valued addition to any website. It proves to Google that you are professional. Your affiliate promotion page can be something like “Tools I Use” or “My Favourites” and even “More Tactics” and you must always offer products you have extensive knowledge on.

Always load graphic content to your website as large as you possibly can, because it’s a drastic increase in resolution when you shrink the images to the size you need. It is important to be moderate with graphic content and video, because too much will result in your website and/or Blog taking too long to load. Millions of visitors are lost this way because your website must load in six seconds or less, beyond which point most visitors simply move on to the next search. Within no more than three clicks from your home page, your visitor must land on the appropriate product.

When A Website and/or Blog’s Content is interesting, helpful and inspiring then you will never have need for a sales pitch…ever. Your Blog is to share, engage and inspiring your audience with the link to your website in each Blog Post Signature. But these are the basic tactics to building your internet and affiliate marketing empire.  Your level of achievement and success will largely rely on your attitude and not your aptitude. Take your time with these kind of methods and tactics because it’s a tiny piece of a very large picture, but also the most important part.

Conclusion – Proper keyword, keyword phrase and anchor text research is equally important to relevant content creation. Incorrect targeting result in thousands of visitors with absolutely no conversion, which defeats the purpose entirely. Offering the wrong product is another common mistake to the majority of affiliate marketers perhaps not so successful yet. Your website is important, because successful affiliate marketers generate sales by means of only two methods. Their own websites, and email lists to every website. 

You will need Proper Keyword and Product Research Tools if you’re going to be successful as an Affiliate Marketer. And also learn How to create and Publish Your Own Website and be recognised, and creating trust. Audiences are more inclined to purchase from a familiar.
