Affiliate Marketing Revised

Everything you think you know about building an affiliate business is wrong. Everything you’ve been taught is simply out of date. If you play by the old rules, you will lose this game.

The promise

Unfortunately, you’ve been led to believe affiliate marketing is easy. This is partially true. It’s far easier that developing, selling and supporting your own product. But starting your own business is really hard, so it’s all relative.

The bad news…

To top it off you’ve been given false information. You’ve been told to find quality products. Next to look for easy keywords to target. Then to use these keywords to buy ads promoting the product. And just enjoy the commissions. But, it’s all wrong.

Keywords are dead

This method worked a couple years ago. But it’s just too competitive to use keywords now. Adapt and change…

The NEW game

There’s still hope. Follow this method and win again…

  • Start using CPA marketing
  • Instead of researching keywords, research demographics
  • Do image ad marketing

Do CPA marketing instead of product promotion

CPA stands for Cost Per Action. It’s much better than promoting a product. Because you don’t have to get people to spend money. Your commission is generated when they complete an “action”. Entering their email into a form, for example. And getting them to do this is so much easier.

Do demographics research

You’re not even going to use keywords (explained below.) But demographics are highly important. First, select the CPA offer you want to promote. Next, you go to Quantcast.com. And research what kinds of people will be interested.

Use image ads

So far, you’ve got your CPA offer and your target demographics. Display networks allow you to target demographics with your ads. And let images do the work. No keywords required. Plus you’re going to save a ton of money. Image ad clicks are much cheaper.

Summing it up

This is powerful method to make money online. Because you can start CPA marketing for free. Image ads are cheap. Display networks let you do demographics targeting. And you get paid for having them take a simple action.
