Do you ever ask yourself if Affiliate Marketing is really what it's cracked up to be? Can many of you, of us, make serious money selling other peoples' products? Or is it only a few big guns that have right to succeed!
At beginning I was very skeptical, but as time passed and progress was made, it became less of a frustration. Now, I am an absolute believer. If ever I had doubts, they are long ago behind me.
Why is that? What made difference in my results?
There are, of course, several factors that determine success or failure of your endeavour. But there is one key element that ranks above all others.
And that, in my humble view, is CONTENT on your web site. Good useful and informative content is why people come to visit you. If you don't have enough of it, and if it isn't relevant content, then we all do same thing...click away, go elsewhere.
No content, no repeat visitors, no repeaters no sales and you lose.
Ask yourself this...
What is your site trying to say?
Do you have enough information to offer, to keep people interested, to stick around, and especially to come back for more.
For example, Best Affiliate Products is all about helping you to become a successful Affiliate Marketer, and guide you towards Niche Markets.
So I keep adding relevant information. Relevant means info relating only to Affiliate and Niche Marketing. Nothing else. I am not trying to sell used cars, or give away free vacations, or offer travel plans, or offer advice on care of your favorite pet. You must stay away from temptation to get sidetracked and have articles, or banners trying to promote products that have nothing to do with your site's main purpose.
Also of critical importance is links that you have coming in from other sites, or outgoing links from articles on your site. In Related Links category on BAP, you will find only links to truly related web sites.
When a webmaster offers to link up with me, first thing I verify is whether their links are relevant. In many cases, they allow any kind of business to connect up with them. When I see this, I run away real fast, and refuse offer.
