Recommended Names Affiliate Marketing Networks Is Very Good Money

Now before I tell you about networks to apply to, I want you to know these are all networks I am a member of and highly recommend. Also know that by applying to these networks, I will be paid a small referral fee (usually around 2% of your earnings). This ~2% comission is taken from the affiliate network profit margins and not from your actual earnings. This is one of the main ways that I am making money from this guide and appreciate if you apply using the links below as a thank you to me for writing this detailed guide. Lastly, if you apply using my links, if you need help getting accepted into a network or get stuck on something, I’ll be glad to help you as much as possible. I recommend you join around 3-5 affiliate networks to start, no more than 8. Otherwise it just becomes too much.

AzoogleAds

AzoogleAds is my personal favorite affiliate network and the one I’ve made a LOT of money on. I’ve been quite open about them being my favorite affiliate network for years and they remain my favorite. The company is on top for a reason: they treat their publishers very well. More than just gifts (like big screen TV’s, flights, parties, etc) they also are great at building relationship with their publishers and actually care about how you are doing as an affiliate. I’ve had the privilege of working with AzoogleAds since the start of my affiliate marketing career and they have been a large key to my success.

I highly recommend you check them out no matter big or small affiliate. As of recently, they have a whole team designed specifically for the newbie affiliates called the AZN Advisor. If you’re a smaller / newbie affiliate, you get access to this AZN Advisor where you get newsletters, tips, tricks, and more! They are one of just a few affiliate networks to offer this to the smaller publishers and that is just another reason why they are on the top of my recommendation list. Highly recommended!


Elite Clicks Media 

Elite Clicks Media I recommend you join ECM if you’re looking to get started with social media affiliate marketing, media buying, or PPV affiliate marketing. They have some top converting offers for those 3 marketing methods. Besides having a lot of really great offers, the professionals behind Elite Clicks Media is a great team of guys that are set on helping their publishers go to the next level. For example, just recently, ECM held a free webinar on CPV/PPV Marketing. More importantly, they have even more webinars lined up to help their publishers learn! This, to me, shows how they are not just like any other old network. One unique benefit of ECM is that they have a personal coaching program available to publishers. The goal is to take them to $1000 per week (and weekly payments), then $1000 per day, and then to $100K per month and beyond. I highly recommend you check out ECM and once you are approved, be open and honest about your goals and intentions and this team will help you to meet those goals.

Last but not least, Elite Clicks Media recently partnered up with Kevin Harrington. You know, the guy who has sold more than $4 Billion dollars worth of merchandise via television infomercials.  I recommend you join ECM if you’re looking to get started with social media affiliate marketing, media buying, or PPV affiliate marketing.

Qwik MediaQwikMedia is owned by a group of experienced online marketers with specialized experience in pay per click traffic, media buying, and lead generation. When you join Qwikmedia, you get access to these highly experienced internet marketers. In fact, when you join Qwik media, I would recommend being open and honest about your goals with them, what promotion methods you plan to use and seek their advice on how to best go about your campaign. I know from personal experience that they will be right there to help you as much as possible.

I recommend you focus on PPC, media buying, or doing any lead generation offer (which, if you remember, are the offers I recommend you start with) when using QwikMedia as these are their specialty. Many of the offers are exclusive offers (meaning you can’t get them at another network) that are doing really well right now in niches like dating, insurance, and more.

Tatto Media
Tatto Media is an affiliate network run by some highly successful internet marketers. One thing I appreciate about Tatto, is they are a big business that is run very well. As well as an affiliate network Tatto is an advertising agency that serves tens of millions of unique impressions per month using a proprietary ad server system. Tatto Media is built from people who are highly successful marketers and because of this they only have offers they for the most part have tried and tested themselves.

You don't have 1000 offers of which 950 are making $0. The other great thing about Tatto is that many of the offers are their own exclusive offers that they have made and optimized themselves. They have some of the best mobile offers. Mobile offers do really well on social traffic and media buys. If you plan to focus on either of those methods, you should check out Tatto!

NeverblueAds
NeverblueAds was one of the first affiliate networks I joined when I was first starting out and was one of the first networks that I had success on. In fact within just a few weeks of running on NeverblueAds, I was able to get a campaign going that was making upwards of $400 revenue per day! Since then, NeverblueAds has continued to expand the amount of amazing offers they have, including many exclusives. I would especially recommend you sign up for NeverblueAds if you plan on doing social media marketing as they have many good offers to pick from in this vertical.

NeverblueAds is one of those networks that really has established themselves as a great network to use by always paying on time, treating their affiliates very well, running awesome contests, and more. It’s because of this that many of the super affiliates run a majority of their traffic with NeverblueAds!

Affiliate.com
Affiliate.com is one of the larger affiliate networks that was started by one of the largest email marketers in the business, Scott Richter. If you plan on doing any sort of email marketing, whether it be capturing emails via
PPV, PPC, or any other method, I highly recommend you check out the offers at Affiliate.com. They have a great assortment of offers designed specifically for email. Beyond just email offers, they also have affiliate offers for just about every niche. And because this company is run by a super affiliate, they know the business very well. Affiliate.com puts it this way, “Our mission is simple. When you are successful we are successful! We provide a wide variety of benefits you won’t find at other networks.” So, if there is one thing that sets affiliate.com apart from the rest is their focus on providing affiliate support and I love that about this company. I highly recommend you check out affiliate.com!

CXDigital
CXDigital is another network that is highly regarded in the affiliate marketing industry by many super affiliates. CX is a large publicly traded company and an affiliate network with a ton of affiliate offers. Because of the size of this network, you can get just about any offer and get really good payouts at that. I’ve used CXDigital for some of my affiliate offers in the past and they have always treated me well and the offers have converted great. Another reason people love to use CXDigital is because of the awesome rewards program.
Every $15,000 you earn with CXDigital (rolls over month to month) gets you a $100 prepaid Mastercard! Imagine earning cash for earning cash. : )

Copeac 
Copeac is another great network that you can join. A large number of super affiliates use Copeac frequently because they have a huge number of offers that work really well. Here is one of the best parts about Copeac. If you hit $1000 per week in earnings you get paid weekly. While other large networks require $10,000 per week or more, they only require $1000. When you’re starting to grow, this is a good network to use as it will help your cash flow quite a bit. Additionally, if you’re looking for free trial offers, Copeac is one of the best places to look. They regularly have top converting offers in that space.

The great part about affiliate marketing is you don’t technically need a website to make it work. In fact, many affiliates go a large part of their career without ever making a website. Instead, you can buy traffic (or visitors) from many sources. Buying traffic is the key to having huge success. Instead of having to wait for the visitors to come to a site you’re building, you go out and find websites that will allow you to buy ads so you
can place your affiliate links! Instantly you can test multiple offers and see if it’s going to work for you.
So the general idea for affiliate marketing is buying ads at a low enough cost that you have a difference in your cost and the amount of commissions that those ads generated.

That’s the basics of affiliate marketing
Don’t Worry… You don’t need thousands of dollars to start. Buying ads might sound expensive but you can literally start with as little as $5 dollars. And… I’ll be trying to work out some deals to get coupons for all the readers of this guide. If you are subscribed to my blog’s RSS feed (http://www.jonathanvolk.com) then you’ll hear about it when it comes. If you can’t afford to risk at least $5 on advertisements, then you probably can stop reading this guide and look up a good SEO guide.

Earn Money and Make Money With Affiliate Marketing Pay Per Click

Affiliate Marketing is marketing products or services for other companies in exchange for a commission. You are a virtual sales person of sorts. You don’t deal with inventory, customer service, follow up, or anything like that. You simply sell. When you successfully get a customer to the business and make a sale (or lead), you get paid a commission. Now… think if you could find tens of thousands of people actively looking for shoes. You could be placing your special affiliate link in front of them and be making money 24 hours per day. This is just a simple example of what affiliate marketing is and how it’s done; there is a bit more too it all, but all of it will be covered in this guide. You could try to go and find each individual website you want to promote, try to setup a deal with them and then become their affiliate but that would take a lot of time. This is where the affiliate networks come in.


 Affiliate Marketing
Affiliate networks are companies that facilitate the “network” or relationship between the companies and the affiliates (you). Affiliates (Industry term: Publishers) sign up for the affiliate network and instantly have access to thousands of companies (Industry term: Advertisers) that want you (affiliates) to promote their business. You can pick through any number of these companies to promote. This instant access to hundreds or sometimes thousands of companies is the true power of being a part of an affiliate network. But… the benefits don’t stop there. You never deal with the individual companies directly. Instead, you always deal directly with the affiliate network. This way you really only have one point of contact.

Finally, the other major benefit of the affiliate network is the payment terms. Affiliate networks usually pay their affiliates way faster than a direct company. Instead of waiting 60+ days to be paid (net 30 or even net 45), you can often get paid biweekly or weekly after a small earning threshold. For example, many networks will set you on weekly wires if you start generating $$ per week or more in commissions.

So what does the affiliate network get out of all of this?
In exchange for all of this, the affiliate network takes a small percentage from the  commissions you generate. Don’t worry… it is well worth it! Affiliate networks are the best places to start in your affiliate marketing career. Even to this day, I still use affiliate networks for a majority of my business because it allows me to leverage my time as best as possible.

Getting Accepted Into An Affiliate Network It can be a bit difficult to get accepted into an affiliate network (specially for people outside the US) when first starting out. It might seem like a tough process but if you follow the steps below, you should have no problem. This tough process is due to affiliate networks taking on a ton of risk. In most cases they have to pay bigger affiliates weekly (sometimes even daily) but yet only get paid from the companies net 15 or even net 30! In some cases the companies are late or even fight payment. If a certain percentage of leads for example are not good, then they often don't want to pay for the whole batch of leads.

Risk Factor
To affiliate networks it’s all about one thing. How much of a risk are you to them? Think of the network that has 1000 applications waiting for approval. Because of the shear number of scammers joining affiliate networks each day, the only way to stand out is to show them you’re not one of them. If you're an affiliate from a major country, your risk factor is substantially lower but still does not guarantee acceptance... You need to do more than JUST apply.

To be Accepted
To be accepted into a network, you must get over the fear of talking to real live human beings. Yup, that means actually calling in. I know… I hate talking on the phone probably as much or more than most of you who would rather pull teeth than talk on the phone but it’s a necessary evil. When you apply for any affiliate network, you must not sit and wait there for approval but you should call them. If you get denied, call them and ask why. Calling a business removes a lot of the risk factor as a majority of hackers, scammers, and fake lead generators don't want to call. When you’re on the phone, the network is probably going to ask you how you plan to promote the affiliate offers, if you have any websites, etc.

Some of the scammers have recently gotten smarter and have begun hiring actors to call the networks. Therefore the networks are going to be asking your specific questions about how you plan to promote their affiliate offers. Study out one of the methods that you will learn about in this guide. Really focus on it and become confident in that single method. That way when it’s time to answer some questions about how you plan to promote the affiliate offers, you shouldn’t have a problem being accepted into the network.

Application
One common question you will see on the applications for the affiliate networks is what your website is. If you have ANY website, no matter how terrible, put it in. It really doesn’t matter that much in the terms of approval. If you have no website, no worries either. Put something like Facebook.com in the website url if you plan to promote via facebook and explain in the comments section your plans. Website or no website, explain yourself and promotion methods in the comments section on the application.

Word of Caution! Don’t Get Scammed
More and more affiliate networks are popping up every day. Be wise and stick with the tried and true affiliate networks. Until you have some experience under your belt and know what to look for, do not try to go for just any affiliate network. You don’t want to risk not getting paid. In 2009, I was not paid over $22,000 from bad affiliate networks. I was fortunate. There were others that lost even more than that.

Revenue Advertising Cost Per Click and Banners

Advertising on other people’s websites works! However, the most important rule as with any advertising is to identify those websites that attract your target cliental and are therefore are a relevant point of contact for your customers. Statistical analysis show there is an optimum mix of banner ads that reinforce brand and banner ads that have a direct call to action message. It is possible to control the ads and a message a customer sees throughout this campaign to optimise this mix.

Cost per click advertising is popular, particularly with Google and there are few key rules that must be followed. These are:

• Only target keyword phrases in which your website does not already come in the top 10 results

• Use the ads to target specific pages. For example, for the keyword phrase “Melbourne hostel”the ad should link to the Melbourne hostel page.

• The heading and content of the ad are very important and should be continually reworked and tested. The best method is A/B testing which involves running exactly the same ad at the same time but with ever so slightly subtle text changes. For example, one add might say “Ayres Rock day trip” while the other says “Ayres Rock day tour”. Monitor the number of visits over say one week and see if there is an improvement from one to another. This process is dynamic and should never stop.

• Conversion rates must be monitored. This is very easily done with Google Adsense. A piece of JavaScript code is supplied that can be entered into the booking confirmation page which tracks the purchase to the ad that the customer came in on. Keyword phrases that do not generate conversion should be eliminated as they are costing money without generating revenue.

• Only target those keyword phrases that will realistically generate business.

Similarly, it has also been statistically shown that a mix of banner ads and search engine ads are optimal. A person who has been exposed to banner ads is as much as 27% more likely to select a search engine ad for a search term, and up 40% more likely thereafter to actually convert to a sale as a response to the search ad click, than a customer who comes to the website only via the search engine ad


Google Keywords Meta Data, Title Tags and Headings and Code With SEO

The use of Meta data in the web page head influences search engine rankings less and less. However, there are some minimum data that should be supplied, including the author of the website, the date the website was created, the type of content (whether it is general or adult), and a description of the website The title tag is almost the single most important part of the entire website content with regard to search engines. Search engine algorithms (read Google) place a decent amount of weight on the content and construction of the title. The title tag is the text that appears at the very top of your browser.

The title should contain your keywords, and most importantly make sense as it also appears in the search results and as such must be the primary call to action for your customer. Here is a good
example for the search term “Sydney hostel”. The description under the blue heading comes from your description meta tag.

The second most important piece of content is the headings within the site. A good website is coded with up to 6 heading tags. Search engines give weighting to the content that appears in those tags in descending order heading 1 being the most important should therefore contain the most important headings on the page and preferably your main keywords.


Search Engine Code Optimisation Simple Tricks Using CSS

A strong consideration should be the code to content ratio. Good websites are developed in CSS as much as possible thereby removing any formatting code from the actual web page and storing it in a separate file. Likewise any JavaScript code for menus etc should be stored in a separate file. The goal is to have the minimum amount of code against the all important content. The order of the content can also be Finally, Images should be labeled in line with your keyword analysis.

Rather than calling an image “image1” it should be labelled something like “Sydney-hostel-kitchen”. Dashes are the preferred method for search engines to separate words over the underscore symbol. All images should also contain alt text. Alt text (or tool tips) is actually there for disability uses who use reading software to describe the site Search engines can not view the image so they rely on the description of the image to build up the database of information about your site.

Manipulated such that the most important content appears as high in the web page code as possible even if it does not appear like that on the page when displayed. This is most important where a site has traditional left hand menus the site should be coded in effective in reverse so that the content
appears in the code before the menu (although it renders on the screen in the correct order).

Master Plan Search Engine Optimisation And Internet Marketing

SEO is simultaneously science and bullshit. While there is a fair understanding as to how search algorithms are constructed there is also a large degree of guess work what weighting does Google put on inward links, heading tags, meta data etc. Further search algorithms are regularly changing, taking into account the evolving nature of the Internet. For example, links are regarded as very important as they are seen as an endorsement of a web page by a third party. So everyone started links pages and reciprocal links regardless of likeness. Not quite what Google had in mind. The solution; Google devalues the amount of weight it gives to reciprocal links and inbound links on pages with lots of links.

The purpose of an Internet Marketing strategy is clear and simple to generate more and better quality traffic to your website. The website thereafter takes over with the purpose of converting that traffic to customers (known as the looker to booker ratio). This paper focuses on how to generate more of the right customers to your website. “The right customer” is an important phrase. Search engine and Internet marketing that focuses purely on traffic numbers is a flawed strategy. Rather the focus should be on identifying the ideal customer (those customers willing to spend their time and money with you) and attracting them to your website.

SEO and Internet Marketing

The following paper covers four distinct but inextricably linked elements:
1. Website Optimisation
2. Search Marketing
3. Link Campaign
4. Content Syndication.

Optimising Your Website Keywords

The goal of SEO is to generate more and better quality traffic to your website. One of the worse errors is to put effort into very general keywords such as Australia at the expense of very specific
phrases such as “hostel Sydney city.” Focus on 5 to 8 keyword phrases. If top spots are achieved
with these keywords, then the focus can be expanded while simultaneously maintaining effort on
the main keywords (you can easily lose rankings just as quickly as you have gained them).

A common practice is to stuff lots of keywords into the keyword and description meta tags of your website. While it is debatable the impact if any these tags have on your search engine rankings,
it is the case that at the most the keywords and description should be no more than 250 characters
long. There are many methods for deriving the optimal keywords for an Internet Marketing and Optimisation Campaign. Below is a simple suggested methodology that takes advantage of free software.

Google Keywords

This tool allows you to extract the keywords that Google sees from any website.

First: Select the region, repeating the process for every region, where your customers are expected
to search from.

Secondly: Select the site related keywords tab and enter your URL. Google will return a big long list
of keywords from which you go through and select the ones you are interested in. NOTE: you are
only interested in phrases with high search volume. Repeat the process for your competitors
URL to build up your list.

Internet Marketing


Google Keywords Overture & Wordtracker
This particular tool analyses Wordtracker and Overture at the same time. Type in the keyword phrases individually that you selected from your Google analysis to look for keywords that were
missed and to get relative search volumes. Begin to eliminate phrases from your list based on the
search volumes. Once again enter each keyword phrase for each region that you are interested in;

The keyword intensive content might appeal to search engines but equally it must entice your customers into the site. Make “a big fat claim”. For example, “lose weight in 21 days“, or “the highest rating hostel in Rotorua”. This claim must not be too generic and must be able to be substantiated. Another important point is the tone of your website content. When marketing on a website (or in an email) you are in fact only marketing to one person. Websites are seldom read as a group, rather just by one person and so should be marketed as such talk directly to the reader rather than use the third person. An interesting tool is the “we-we” test. The we-we test analyses the number of times you discuss yourself or use the word ‘we’, or your company name, relative to the number of references to
the customer themselves. Try this tools "we-we test" for fun

SUCCESS STORY WITH INTERNET MARKETING GUIDE AND TIPS

Cheaper and More Flexible Than Offline Advertising Internet advertising is extremely different from print advertising in that space is cheap, your advertisement is accessible for a longer period of time, the content can be changed without having to ask someone to do it for you (if you use a content management system) and you can potentially reach a wider audience. No more turning customers away when its time to close shop, putting up a note saying "closed for public holiday", or leaving an irritating message on your answering service specifying your trading hours? Tell them to visit your website for the information they are looking for.

Offer Convenience
It is far more convenient for a person to research a product on the Internet than it is to get in a car, drive somewhere and look for or ask someone for information on a product. Also, a potential customer won't have to judge a call center agent to determine whether he/she has their best interests in mind, or just wants to make a sale. The potential customer can visit your website whenever they like in their own privacy and comfort, without the stresses and distractions that exist in the "real
world".

SUCCESS STORY WITH INTERNET MARKETING

Add Value and Satisfaction
By offering convenience, a point of reference and that touch of individualized customer service, you ultimately add value to your offering and your customers experience a higher level of satisfaction. Your website can add value in other ways too, by featuring tips, advice and general interest content you can "entertain" your customers. This will also help them remember you better.

Standardize Sales Performance
By looking at the approaches that have worked in the past and those which have not, you can produce the ultimate pitch and use it with your website, so that you use it on every customer. No more training of sales people and waiting for them to get a feel for your line of trade.

Improve credibility
A website gives you the opportunity to tell potential customers what you are about and why you deserve their trust and confidence. In fact, many people use the internet for prepurchase research so that they can determine whether a particular supplier or brand is worthy of their patronage, and won't take them for a ride. The Internet also allows for Viral Marketing, where your website visitors spread positive word-of-mouth about your business your customers do your marketing!

Promote your "Brick 'n' Mortar" Presence
Getting lost trying to find a place can be frustrating for a potential customer. You can publish what they call a "dummy map" on your website, which shows directions and landmarks graphically, and the
potential customer can print it out when looking for your "Brick 'n' Mortar" premises.

Growth Opportunity
A website serves as a great place to refer potential investors to, to show them what your company is about, what it has achieved and what it can achieve in future.

Two-Way Communicative Marketing
Customers can quickly and easily give feedback on your product and/or marketing approach.
 
Cheap Market Research
You can use features on your website such as visitor polls, online surveys and your website statistics to find out what your customers like more and how they feel about certain aspects of your business to determine how you can improve your product and the way you do business. Website statistics show you how much traffic your website receives, how the visitor got to your website and where, geographically, the visitor is from.
