You Can Be Successful As An Affiliate Marketer
What determines your success as an internet marketer? I'm sure there are numerous answers to that question. In my short time here at Wealthy Affiliate, I think I've come up with some observations. It seems all the successful Affiliate Marketers share the same qualities. With that being said, it would make sense to then mimmick those qualities, follow their advice; you should then be successful. If it works for them, why wouldn't it work for you? .
Some Great Things I've Learned at Wealthy Affiliate
One thing that sticks out to me, is the successful people are very tuned in on what works. They don't try to reinvent the wheel. They follow the excellent training here on the Wealthy Affiliate platform. Successful Affiliate Marketers listen to the knowledge of the more tenured members. There are members with a wealth of information to share with others. Pardon the play on words. Anytime I've ever reached out to someone for assistance, I've always gotten help.
Another great observation, is the successful people have a schedule and follow it. They don't just wing it, they are intentional in their time management. They make time for their business and stick to a schedule. If you don't manage your time, you will get nothing done. List tasks you need to accomplish and stick to it. You will have a great sense of satisfaction once your tasks are completed.
I can't Say Enough About Quality Content
A great content writer does not just write an article just to fill up their website. Don't just stuff keywords for ranking, but instead have great information that will benefit the reader. A great writer, writes with a formula. All successful bloggers use the following formula.
1. Someone on the internet has a problem and they are searching for an answer. BE THEIR ANSWER!
2. Your post must have their answer. (Hey potential reader, I can solve your problem) Visit my website!
3. Tell them why it is their answer. Let them know they absolutely must have that product!
4 CTA (Call To Action) BUY NOW! CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
If you follow this formula, you are well on your way to success. Always remember your audience. You are writing for them. Also, be yourself, be genuine, people will relate to authenticity.
I had An Affiliate Marketing Milestone This Week.
I am here to tell you, if you follow the training and the formula, it will work. I made my first affiliate sale this week and I know that is the first of many. Remember don't get discouraged, keep on with the training and DO NOT QUIT. I hate to say that old saying we all know, but......Quitters never win, and winners never quit.
In a society where we don't like to wait, we want everything instantly, it is sometimes hard to be patient with our online business. We want instant traffic, we want instant sales, but when you are new to a niche, it takes time to build the trust of your readers. Give it time and be patient.
A Few Great Tips I Learned This Week
When you are just starting out and picking a niche, don't make the niche so narrow that it can't grow. It is wise to chose a niche that is larger, so you never run out of ideas. If you choose a large enough niche, the writing possibilities are endless.
Look at successful blogs and break it down. See how they structure their website, look at their keywords they are using. Notice their use of images. If they are successful, it will benefit you to learn from what is working for them.
Post your blogs on your social media. You will get a lot more traffic and we all know traffic equals sales. To copy the URL to Social Media there is a specific way to do it. At the top of each blog, there is an affiliate link. When you click on that link, you can copy it. There is a Google website you can go to shorten the URL. The website is goo.gl. You can then use that website to find out how many clicks your post received.
Lastly, believe in yourself and you will achieve great results!
