How to Create a Successful Affiliate Marketing Structure for Long Term Income!

There is no doubt what so ever...Affiliate Marketing is an exciting way to create an income stream that is steady, reliable, and allows you to create a lifestyle I am sure you dream about. One of the first things you will need to do is create a successful Affiliate Marketing structure to earn the long term income!

It's going to take some time and there will be plenty of work for you to do. I don't know about you, but one of the aspects that most of the 'gurus' out there forgot to tell me and probably you when we started out is this...you need to learn how to attract traffic to your brand new website! Without traffic or let's call them visitors, your website is pretty much useless! You could have the product of the year for sale on your site but without any traffic...there is no buyers.

Let's take look at what you can do as a new Affiliate Marketer to create a successful structure for long-term income growth.

#1 Build Your Website or Blog...

It all starts here. First, you need to build a website or blog that will attract visitors. You do this by creating a site that has interesting and engaging content that is valuable to your visitor. When your website is up and running, you need to begin to create a traffic stream before you even think about pitching affiliate products.

How long this takes will depend on how you go about creating that traffic stream. There are many tools that you can use to help improve your traffic flow but always use legitimate methods, so that you can enjoy more than just short-term benefits.

Most people want to plaster as many different products for sale as they can fit on the page when they first start out. Please...DO NOT DO THIS...RESIST THE TEMPTATION!

#2 Create a Site That Offers Value to the Reader...

I have touched on this before. While this doesn't always help to increase traffic it does help to bring readers back to your site...it builds a level of trust that you are going to need in order for your visitors to feel comfortable enough to buy any products whether those products are your own or those associated with affiliate marketing.

#3 Associate Only with High-Quality Products...

I have said it before, you need to 'test drive' each product that you are going to sell through your affiliate marketing because if it's no good you certainly don't want to be marketing these products to your customers or your readers. Nor do you want your brand name anywhere near them. You want your readers to develop a level of trust for the products you recommend, so make sure you are worthy of that trust or you will lose your following and that will be the end of creating your income stream!

Just today I was asked a question about 2 particular affiliate marketing companies I had never heard of. The person who asked the question had been waiting to hear back from these companies and after a reasonably lengthy period of time, this person had not heard back from them! An experience like this would have my warning bells ringing out louder than Big Ben!

#4 Don’t Make Your Site a Sales Page

There is nothing worse than a visitor arriving at a website to discover it is nothing more than a sales page. They will hit the back button or the little 'x' in the top right-hand corner of your computer screen immediately, and you will lose them forever before you even get the chance to build trust or show them what you have to offer. How many times have you done this? For me...I've lost count how many times! It's really off-putting!

Here's my suggestion...sprinkle your affiliate links sparsely throughout your content. To start off, I only use one banner on my posts and it is usually at the VERY END of any post I publish. I'll give you ONE guess what the banner is...yep...it's a WEALTHY AFFILIATE banner!

Make your website a standalone site that people want to visit and then design your site in such a way that your affiliate links look as if they are what I term 'A BY THE WAY' and seem secondary to everything else that is happening on your site. Make sure any banner you include on your posts is relevant!

You are working with (and have paid for) and have at your fingertips the PERFECT Affiliate Marketing product to sell...the WEALTHY AFFILIATE program! If you are struggling to come up with an idea for the niche you want to work in...why not start with the WA BOOTCAMP lessons...I've started to do it and I'm up to Course 1 Lesson 8...it really is amazing training!

Thanks for taking the time to read this post...

I hope you have found it interesting and informative...I welcome any comments, questions or feedback you might have to offer...

Best wishes and much success...

Steve
