How To Learn Affiliate Marketing For Beginners, Seniors, And My 80 Year Old Pensioner Father!
Best Challenge Ever For 80 Year Old Pensioner To Become Affiliate Marketer!
Have you ever tried to start learning affiliate marketing for beginners when you have lived a full life and are 80 years of age?
I didn't think so, although there may be a handful of people out there with the tenacity and determination of my father who are taking up the challenge and running with it!
CREATING THE BEST WEBSITE FROM SCRATCH!
So how on earth is he able to do all this and take it in?
Well, I convinced him to sign up with WA after a loooooonnnnnggg time of persuasion in November / December last year with the Black Friday Special and so he did!
He is now my number 1 referral focus right now and so I helped him understand the concepts of Finding A Niche Related To His Passion, Google Search, Jaaxy Keywords, Structuring Website Correctly, Writing Long Pages Of Content and persevering when Providing Comments were rejected.
CHOOSING A NICHE
My father has had many jobs in his lifetime and quite impressive I might add, there are no affiliation links so you can read about them in his About Page Here. The one I believe he would have the most to share about is carpentry woodwork. He is a qualified carpenter and loves to work with wood and he ahs so much experience he would be able to write content ad infinitum!
Suffice it to say we agreed on that as the niche and he came up with a great domain name and so we purchased that great domain name!
GETTING STARTED WITH SITECOMMENTS
I nutured him through the process of providing comments on peoples websites and this was a hard task as he struggled with the rejection factor as he didn't completely understand why they would do that. I had to explain that he needed to write from his own experience in order not to repeat what the person has already said. We finally overcame that hurdle and he's earned over $10.00 - but he becomes very discouraged easily. We'll persue this phenomena and win!
USING GOOGLE SEARCH AND JAAXY KEYWORD RESEARCH TOOL
Next I showed him how to use Google Search to see the phrases that people were actually searching for and asked him to make a long list of about 50 phrases in each section we had agreed on.
This was a long and arduous task and lots of convincing that it was worth it and that he could do it. Explaining and re-explaining it, eventually he got the hang of it and was well on his way to finding the phrases related to his website structure.
Next I helped him put those phrases into Jaaxy and showed him how to look for low competition and high traffic for the low hanging keywords. Furthermore, I showed him how to rearrange the wording to perhaps find better keyword results.
This all took a lot of time and the huge factor here is: He did it himself!
APPLYING KEYWORDS TO QUALITY CONTENT
I didn't pussyfoot around him when I told him he needed to now write content for each of the sections he'd found keywords for. Plain and simply I told him he needed to try and reach an amount of 1,500 words for each sections and when he raised his eyebrows, I said, "Just write as if you were explaining it to me and keep writing!"
He understood the concept and applied this to his writing with paper and pen and in no time he'd written pages and pages on the first section. So he continued for each section until he had the required quota of words.
TYPING IN THE WRITTEN CONTENT
Here's where the slog comes in for me!
I offered to assist him as his typing is with two fingers and mine is with all 10 fingers! So suffice it to say I spent all of yesterday typing in content for all necessary pages on the website and the About Page.
This was a mammouth task and took away from the precious time I would've used to create my own content. But I believe if I'm to succeed, I need to help those who signed up under me succeed to, so I did it with a grateful and willing heart. I'm actually quite excited for him and we can definitely see the potential of him earning money from learning affiliate marketing for beginners, seniors and my 80 year old pensioner father!
Perhaps you could take the time to encourage him and spur him on in his endeavour to be the Best 80 Year Old Affiliate Marketer Of All Time!
