Launching a new Affiliate site

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Decided to launch another affiliate site. Things learnt from previous failures.

  1. Promoting products that have low commissions (eg Amazon).
  2. Not enough traffic to the sites
  3. Checking rankings, instead of ignoring them and focusing on content + links

A new product to promote

Its kinda backwards, but you need a site before you can join most affiliate sites.

  1. Join an affiliate site selling products with high value commissions. $50-60 a sale.
  2. Find the newest product (hopefully competition will be less stiff)

A list of keywords to start with

Use long tail pro, enter the name of the product you are promoting or the niche it is in. Generate 1000 keywords (these are used to write content for)

(Free) use Google keyword tool.

A new site

Plugins required

  • Header and Footer Scripts
  • Social Media Feather
  • Table of Contents Plus
  • Disqus

Important, no affiliate links on the site (at all) until it starts generating traffic.

  1. Write landing page. Have a comparison table. Link to a review of product.
  2. Have 10 content pages written up (using keyword list above)
    1. Each content page should have 3-4 subheadings
    2. 3 tags
    3. Assigned to only 1 category
  3. Install analytics (your choice)

A new promotion

  1. Use Scrapebox rapid indexer, using default list. Most sites on that list are broken, however enough work.

Content:

  1. Add 5 new articles a week.

  • It’s tough launching affiliate sites, but without the traffic how can you be the affiliate? I am launching a new blog about affiliate marketing – and as someone with experience it I was wondering if you could suggest any ways to change and improve it.
    I am trying to create a resource of highly valuable content on this site and would really appreciate your feedback. I also may look to turn it into a lead magnet, so am always striving for improvement.

    • If all you are doing is blogging, it takes 2-3 years of consistent effort before any real payback. Based on what I have seen online. If you want traffic you need to bootstrap it from another source that is Google. Eg forums, youtube, basically any online community you can drop a link to. Good luck!
