You’re dead wrong if you think you know anything about being an affiliate. Everything you’ve been taught is simply out of date. If you play by the old rules, you will lose this game.
Unfortunately, you’ve been led to believe affiliate marketing is easy. This is partially true. There’s no doubt it’s easier than starting your own business. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy.
The cold hard truth
And to make matters worse, you’ve taught to do it the hard way. The first thing you’re taught is to pick some great products. Next to pick your keywords carefully. Then buy some keyword ads that send traffic to the product. And just enjoy the commissions. But it doesn’t work.
Don’t bother with keywords
Keyword advertising used to work. But the competition has shot the price of keywords through the roof. So, throw it all away.
A better way
All is not lost. Here’s a new method that works!
- Do CPA marketing instead of product promotion
- Utilize demographics data
- Market on display networks
Get into CPA marketing
CPA means Cost Per Action. It’s far superior to product promotion. Because it doesn’t involve payment. You earn a commission for having them perform an “action”. Entering their email into a form, for example. And getting them to do this is so much easier.
Do demographics research
Keywords are no longer relevant (you’ll see in a minute). So spend your time doing demographics research. Once you’ve picked the CPA offer to promote. Next, you go to Quantcast.com. And research what kinds of people will be interested.
Use image ads
So you know what your promoting and you know who will be interested. Display networks allow you to target demographics with your ads. And let images do the work. No keywords required. The biggest advantage is price. Image ad clicks are much cheaper.
Summing it up
This is truly a quick cash concept. Because it’s free to get started in CPA. Image ads are cheap. You can use demographics to target your ideal prospect. And getting them to take an action is much easier than making a sale.
