Affiliate Marketing Revised

You're dead wrong if you think you know anything about being an affiliate. The tactics of the past few years just don't work anymore. You need to adapt and change or perish. flexgreen.quickcashs.hop.clickbank Affiliate Marketing Revised

The big lie

You've been told it's easy to get started as an affiliate. This is partially true. It is the easiest business you can possibly start. But starting your own business is really hard, so it's all relative.

The bad news...

And to make matters worse, you've taught to do it the hard way. The first thing you're taught is to pick some great products. Next do some keyword research. Then to use these keywords to buy ads promoting the product. And sit back and collect the profits. But this just won't work!

Keywords are dead

Keyword advertising used to work. But the competition has shot the price of keywords through the roof. It's time for a paradigm shift.

A better way

There's still hope. Here's how to win at this game.

  • Do CPA marketing instead of product promotion
  • Instead of researching keywords, research demographics
  • Use image ads

Start using CPA marketing

CPA means Cost Per Action. It's so much easier than promoting products. Because you don't have to get people to spend money. You earn a commission for having them perform an "action". Like completing a survey. And getting them to do this is so much easier.

Do demographics research

Don't waste time researching keywords (see below). But demographics are highly important. First, select the CPA offer you want to promote. Then go to a site like Quantcast.com. And find your target demographic.

Market on display networks

So far, you've got your CPA offer and your target demographics. You can advertise directly to them on display networks. Using image ads. And there was no keyword research required. The biggest advantage is price. Image ad clicks are much cheaper.

In closing

This is truly a quick cash concept. Because you can start CPA marketing for free. It's much cheaper to do image ads than keyword ads. You can use demographics to target your ideal prospect. And getting them to take an action is much easier than making a sale.
