- Overture's Keyword Suggestion Tool
- Ad Word Analyzer
- Keyword Equalizer
Once you decide what keywords to focus on, you can check out what other people are selling successfully for those terms, and look at what affiliate programs pop up when you search for those terms. If you want to focus on affiliate sales, chances are there's some great sales copy already written or that you can modify to fit it to you more individually.
Overture's Maximum Bid tool will give you an idea what's working successfully for other people, or Adword Analyzer can really speed that up by showing how many Overture and Google AdWords campaigns there are for various keywords.
Now you just need targeted traffic to send to read that awesome sales copy. If you don't mind paying today's gasoline prices for some high-octane gas, and you used Overture's Keyword Suggestion Tool or Adword Analyzer, you already have a good idea what keywords would be good to bid on at Overture or Google AdWords. That will get you out of driveway initially, then you can start building keyword-rich pages around theme of your website and getting links from web sites that fit your theme.
Now you know secret of how Internet marketing is like a car engine. So when that Internet marketing campaign won't run, you know you only need to find out what it isn't getting enough of:
- Not enough targeted traffic?
- Not enough of a market that really needs what you're trying to sell?
- No spark to ignite traffic and demand into a sale?
Because just like a car, that's all an Internet marketing campaign really needs to run.
