Do I Need A Website For Affiliate Marketing

I have pointed out in previous articles that it is possible to do affiliate marketing without a website, just build your squeeze page and direct traffic to it but to me this is not the way to grow your business.

You can send traffic to offers and that offer may be successful but for how long for? For instance If your using Facebook ads you could fall foul and have your account shut down, that source of income is gone! If your serious about growing your business as an affiliate marketer then you really do need to start a website, just having your own domain name and hosting account is one reason.

You could easily build a WordPress site in a few months with some good content. Clickfunnels has a word press plug-in allowing you to upload your funnels to your site eliminating the Clickfunnels URL. Then your sending funnels via your domain…it gives you and what your trying to market credibility.

Wealthy Affiliate

Your website is your real estate build it well, invest in it and it will pay you back ten fold. Remember with a website you can easily pre sell your customer via your article. People are looking for help to answer many questions they may have and your providing the solution, you then start building a rapport and gaining trust. Trust me your short sales page cannot deliver what a 600 or 700 word article can. The more good articles you can add to your website the more authority you build with Google.

Add Great Content To Your Website And Grow Your List With Affiliate Marketing

I recommend you find your niche and stick with it, read up on it by finding other blogs and websites in your niche and write articles that you believe are helping, send them to your offers within your article if they are reading beyond the first paragraph then they will more often than not click through.

Good Content is perfect for affiliate marketing

I would then send them to and opt in or bridge page from your article to collect their email this way you can start to grow you list and send them to new offers via your articles, seriously their trust you and the offer your recommending. I know I am still on other marketers lists from my initial visit to their website because they send me to content I value, in a niche that interests me, of course I don’t purchase every offer they put in front of me but some I do.

To conclude, I recommend building your website using WordPress it was initially designed as a blogging platform and is so easy to build. To make your site look great and flow find a simple SEO ready theme that loads quickly with a simple sidebar to add your affiliate banners and a little bit about yourself. I’ll be honest you may need a little bit of HTML knowledge to centre videos and images etc. but you can quite often google what you want to do and your find a solution. For instance type in How to Center a Video in WordPress and your return many results from developer sites. All your really need to do is add the following code to your YouTube iframe within the text editor <div style=”text-align: center;”>Your iframe code here</div>.

I have built many websites for people that become to complicated and advise them to stop using WordPress as WordPress is not designed for large complicated websites as Google will crawl them and generally find errors which can rank you lower, so keep it simple and google friendly.

What Is A Lead Magnet

What is a Lead MagnetHow To Set Up a Squeeze Page or Lead Magnet

What Is A Lead Magnet? A lead magnet is sometimes called baiting its a free incentive or offer you create in exchange for them joining your email list. Email marketing is in my opinion the most effective marketing strategy to run a profitable online business. To have a responsive email list is you biggest business asset when running a new campaign you can assume that you could make $1 minimum from each subscriber.

It’s a fact, people will not give you their email address to receive something that is of no interest to them. Your lead magnet needs to entice your prospect to click through to find out what your offering, this is referred to as an open loop.

What types of Lead Magnet are there:

Try to use a good funnel building software as the majority of templates have been designed to convert. I recommend you start with Clickfunnels 14 day free trial. If you have all your other steps in place test your best funnel during the free trial period. I did and made the Clickfunnels yearly fee with 3 campaigns. Take a look at some lead magnet examples:

Quiz: Definitely my favourite. Everyone loves to play they are intrigued to see where it all leads. Works great with Facebook Ads.

E-book: One of the best lead magnets. You can find many plr sites that offer e-books for free.

Cheat Sheet: This can be a PDF that outlines a work flow, sometimes might be in the form of a worksheet.

Online Course: People think they are getting loads of free content. If you don’t like making your own videos there are plenty of plr sites offering free courses.

Report: Just offer simple business strategies or tips, designed around your chosen niche.

The Simpler the better

Your offer should be simple but effective. As I have previously stated in other articles the less complicated the page the better the conversion.

Stick to your Niche

Before you start anything chose your niche and stick to it. Take it from me, jumping from niche to niche because you like the look of a product or affiliate offer is a disaster. If you stick to one niche you will soon know how to offer and your conversions will grow consistently. Your offer should guide them through your funnel to the end result seamlessly.

Spend time Building Your Lead Capture Page

Make sure you have some where to collect peoples email address and always highlight your strongest selling points in a H1, H2, H3 heading, then your sign up box. It really is that simple, I do not recommend you use fancy backgrounds, it detracts from what you want your lead to do.

Find Targeted Traffic

If you want to collect a good number of sign ups I recommend Solo Ads this way your generally find people willing to enter their email address as they are already on other peoples lists and generally are happy to receive new offers. Remember, however good your squeeze page don’t expect to be making fortunes but remember your creating your business assets. You’ll find your make more with offers to your list in the future.
