Affiliate Marketing Blogging
Blogging For A Targeted Audience
There are many ways to make money with a blog, but my favorite is by promoting products as an affiliate. I will also concentrate on a targeted audience because that is your ideal market strategy.
All you need to do is find a Niche that has a few products you can promote. I highly recommend you choose a Niche that you’re passionate about so that you’re not always having trouble writing reviews.
When you have a genuine interest and passion about something, you’re far more likely to want to learn more about it, understand it and write quality reviews about it. Then fill your blog with content that your targeted audience wants to read about while pointing them to your affiliate links.
To find out what your audience wants, go to forums in your Niche and see what issues people are having. Do a few google searches about issues in your Niche and see what your competitors are writing about these issues. This is good for generating your own ideas. Remember you are targeting a specific group of people.
I do recommend that you pick a Niche you like, or want to learn a lot about because the quality of your content will directly affect your earnings. When you pick a Niche you don't really care about, creating content for it will not be an easy task.
You could even go as far as to ask the product creator for review copy. This way you can test the product and really write honest reviews about it. People are far more likely to trust you and buy through your affiliate links if you’re honest with them. Oh, and don’t forget to include a bonus to your offers as a bribe to buy from you.
So how do you do this?
Here are the steps:
Step 1: As I said you need to pick a Niche that you know about or want to know about and that has at least 3 to 5 products you can promote as an affiliate.
Step 2: Setup an appealing blog. I also recommend getting a domain name related to your Niche. A simple YouTube video search will give you all the tutorials you could possibly need to do this. Also make your domain name seo friendly.
Step 3: Once you blog is setup find out what your Niche users wants to know about and start creating content for them. Make sure that when you’re creating content that it’s content that people actually want to read. Also make sure that you create content that you can put your affiliate links in to get people clicking on them. That’s how you’re going to make money.
Step 4: Look at each post you put on your blog as a page and continually promote each post to get traffic to it.
There’s a lot more that goes into this, but the tips and advice in this blog are a great start.
You will get better at creating content that people pass around. Good content and more traffic will always equal more sales!
There you go folks and I hope this blog will give you an incentive to start your own.
Have a great day and be successful.
