Tips to make money with affiliate marketing

The factors that help me to make money with affiliate marketing is here , though these factors are not in any order but you must read each and every point very carefully.

Find out Buyer keyword Lists first

The first mistake, we often do – register yourself on several affiliate network without knowing , whether these network will add some value or not.

The second major problem is – we also start promoting the same products, probloggers or high ranked sites promotes.

“But, I  do not have any problem? They are highly successful products and probloggers are earning thousands of “. Yes they might be because they researched the keywords, They have that kind of traffic, Do You have that kind of traffic ?

My point is – try to find out some buyer keywords that is already in demand and you are already writing in that niche.

If you try to sell a product that is in low demand then chances are that you are not going to get many sales no matter how hard you try. So it is a good idea to spend a bit of time researching and finding out if a product that you are thinking of promoting is a product that your audience needs. If your site gets decent traffic then you can conduct an online survey and easily get input from your visitors.

Buyer Keywrods will help you to generate affiliate income, if you are not able to generate affiliate income, they will surely help you to increase Google click through rate and CPC.

Analysis of your Best posts – ranking High on Google :

Best buyer keyword

For the first highlighted Link  keyword winner is a better choice of affiliate program. Since this keyword research tool  help users to find out buyer keywords very easily.

Another point is – Why only those posts that rank high on  Google and other search engine?  Reason behind is – Traffic coming from search engine is much more interested in your contents than any one else. Your loyal readers are much more interested in consuming your contents then buying the product.

Any Good analytical tool like Google Analytics can help you to judge your best buyer keyword based article. if you are not sure about that then Jetpack plugin for wordpress is another very good solution for analysis.

Remember one thing very clearly, if your are posting information for the blogger, my dear friend, I am very sorry to say , bloggers will come to consume your contents.

Now powered with this idea, now its time to search some affiliate programs on Clickbank, Shareasale or on any such affiliate programs.

Right Kind of Knowledge

What do you mean by right kind of knowledge?  Am I illiterate? No not at all. But what I have seen in  the last 3 and half year, Probloggers never ever give you the exact idea , how they are generating money and why you are not able to generate, even though you are following the exact strategy.

The answer is simple – They learn this through their experience.  With every great educational blog post they do not want to create a new competitor.

There are three type of affiliate that are able to generate money from different affiliate programs, popular among them is

Type of Product

Selection of product is the most crucial factor for any affiliate, if  product A is doing fine for blog A, it does not  mean that will also work for you.

Your product must be based on the keywords that are ranking high on the search engine as I have already mentioned in the above paragraph, Traffic coming from search engine is the best traffic for your affiliate.

Affiliate store

affiliate store

Affiliate store like illtaketen.com is one such fine example of affiliate store but believe me they have taken utmost care to select their products. These products are unique and compel reader to buy.  Besides this they have a customized theme for better conversion.

Datafeedr.com provide a beautiful plugin to create your own beautiful customized web store  that is very easy to create modify and update. Check out the feature of datafeedr in this small Video.


People love to read reviews before buying any product online.  Complete tutorial type Positive review about that product can guide them to buy from your links.

Point to be noted here very clearly , do not publish irrelevant review on your site, suppose you are writing about wordpress and SEO and suddenly you start writing reviews on kitchenware  will  not help you anyhow?

for example – hostgator sucks- genuine review on hostgator force probable hosting buyer at hostgator to read negative review and when find a dashing positive review.  The idea behind every review is – it must attract the reader to read your review

Better Affiliate Tools

“A tool is as intelligent as its user” .  This is my favorite quotation for any type of tool. Still wordpress have some wonderful plugins that can help you to generate a lots of money through affiliate links.  Maxblogpress Ninja affiliate, Thrirsty affiliate, last but my favorite wp auto affiliate link pro.

Wp auto affiliate link pro is something special, the feature available in this tools is something special that I am not able to locate in either in ninja affiliate or in thirsty affiliate and that is its power to automatically add affiliate links from clickbank, amazon and shareasale.com

Did you read that ?

Wp auto affiliate pro automatically pull affiliate links from amzon, click bank and shareasale based on your defined buyer keyword and place in all the post based on your defined keywords.


What new bloggers and probable probloggers love to do to attract lots of traffic ?  any idea ?

They offer lots of freebies on their website. Sometimes post on popular topics like Samsung mobile phones, iphones, android apps.   I do have a lots of free wordpress themes and lots of article to attract free traffic, but do you think this type of traffic help you to generate healthy affiliate income?

I have some serious doubt.

Marketing of your blog/site/review is must, if you are not able to market your contents then what is the use of all this exercise?

To show your presence you have to follow some sort of guidelines, though I know there are a lots of guide already there, I am not going to reinvent the wheel again. Here are some quick ideas

  • Optimize your article/review for search engine,  title tag, Heading, images name,alt Tag, Image Description,  post URL, meta content, Meta Description must have your targeted keyword and its synonyms .   Image optimization for SEO is equally important. SEO friendly image wordpress plugin is must in this case, if you are not sure about your previous SEO scores of Images.   You can also refer image optimization for seo  article by neil patel.
  • At least place 100 to 200 comments on some highly visible commentluv enabled blogs in your niche.  7 Commenting tricks for better  SEO even pros will not tell you can help you a lot in this case.
  • While responding to your commentators on your own blog, Deep Link this article  like http://binarynote.com/25-news-wordpress-themes.html  instead of only  domain name.
  • If you are able to spend some amount on then sponsor some themes , a theme is a very good source to get instant  backlinks .
  • Share your article on your social networks like facebook, stumbleupon , twitter. To get maximum traffic from twitter,use justretweet .com, people will retweet your article for better bonus, I mean it  for better bonus.
