My path to success with affiliate marketing has been a long one. It took three years to start earning money with affiliate commission checks. When I started, the only affordable help available to me was Internet forums and free training to help in any niche out. So, I took advantage of the weekly training with my company.

It took me over three  years to wade through all the false promises and to learn what truly works for me. There are some hard and fast rules to affiliate marketing that everyone should know. Every Internet marketer should have a bread and butter traffic source and should have profitable campaigns running in at least the verticals. I will explain these concepts in this blog.

Traffic Is King! Whether it is paid or organic.

In internet marketing, traffic is king. Every time you sign up with a new Cost Per Act (CPA) network or affiliate marketing program the account manager will ask how much traffic do you have. What exactly is traffic? Traffic is just an industry jargon for how many people visit your websites or click your advertisement links.

How to get traffic on the internet

There are multiple ways to get traffic on the Internet. You can pay for clicks and ads via Google AdWords, Bing, Yahoo, or from banner placements. You can get organic traffic via having people find your site from search engines. Facebook even has it’s own paid advertisement platform that you can use. Michele and Bill Pescosolido have create great marketing training on creating Facebook Ads. Many people get traffic from youtube videos and article writing. These are all great choices of driving people to your website. It is always a good idea to test them all out to see which is the most profitable. What I’ve learn is everything is not for everybody.  If you are in any kind of affiliate marketing or network marketing you know the old slogan, “find a form of traffic and master it.  If you try to do all, you will find yourself overwhelmed and ready to give up.

The cool thing about Internet marketing is that it is cheap to test out different methods of driving traffic to your site. You can run as many tests until you are sure which is the best.  All of this cost money except the organic traffic.

Once you have an idea of how you will get traffic, you now need to decide what type of affiliate marketing program you want to run. In the industry, we call something such as health a vertical. Under the health vertical their are many niches such as, weight loss, skin care, supplements and products that are designed to keep people healthy and looking healthy.

Multiple Streams of Income

It is always wise to promote more than one niche and to use different affiliate marketing programs because affiliate offers do not last forever. A niche is defines as the product features aimed at satisfying specific market needs (such as the health niche mention above), as well as the price range, production quality and the demographics that is intended to impact. In online marketing some of these niches become outdated and some of the techniques offered no longer work. They get discontinued and stopped. Using more than one affiliate offer for your niche does not put you in a bind when one market dries up. It is called having multiple streams of income.

I know many marketers who were making a killing under one specific vertical niche and when the methods used to market that vertical stopped producing traffic they saw a major decline in their income. If you only rely on one, it may hurt you in the future.  Please understand I am talking about the product itself and not the marketing technique you should use.  I will say again, please pick one and master it before you start incorporating more.

There’s tons of money to be made with affiliate marketing but you have to put in the time to study the industry. You have to roll up your sleeves and get dirty, trying different methods and ideas. Once you learn the basics, you will be able to make a living off of affiliate marketing.

Plug Into A System

In conclusion, one of the best ways to increase your knowledge is to stay connected. Start using a training platform that provides you with the tools to hep you succeed in your goals.

Now is the time to plug into a system that provides daily motivational training and weekly Wednesday webinar training.

It’s the platform that shows you how to create You, Inc.  Furthermore, it provides powerful funnels and customer relation management system that keep track of your every business move.

Finally, I love helping individuals reach their goals both spiritually and professionally.  We learn from each other and if you found this blog helpful don’t hesitate to share.

This should give you a clearer understanding about how to better yourself in network marketing.
