By establishing a strong niche for your website, as well as a neat-looking design, you’ll build a strong understanding of the affiliate marketing.
  • With these basics mastered, the course will take you through Search Engine Optimization techniques, which are fundamental to master in order to rank high in the search engine (i.e. Google). You’ll learn how to remove unuseful footer credits, how to create high-quality interlinks/backlinks/anchors, how to setup your Categories Page, and how to target keywords to redirect users to the products they’re looking for.
  • You will learn how to target keywords organically, without appearing “spammy” to Google’s algorithm. You will master the art of creating original content, which is instrumental in order to rank high in the search engine. You will finally learn how to choose the right products to add on your website, and which affiliate marketing program best fits your specific case. You will see how to add “Check It Out” buttons to your products, and insert backlinks to redirect visitors to the main seller with whom we partner as affiliate marketers. We will add a bit of coding to our Categories and Home pages, so that we can further enhance our SEO status.

Instructor Biography

Isli Hoxha, Website Developer | Growth Hacker | Affiliate Marketer |

My name is Isli Hoxha. I am a college student; majoring in Finance, and minoring in Industrial Psychology, and computer science. 

In terms of computer discipline, my default position is that of a website developer, affiliate marketer, and [online/physical] business growth hacker. In terms of entrepreneurship, I am the Founder and co-CEO at HNR Cleaning Services. 

The way I have found most reasonable to connect affiliate marketing with entrepreneurship and website development is to promote affiliate products related to the niche-websites I am developing. In the case of the cleaning services business mentioned earlier, besides creating the actual business website, I also developed an external website which targets items related to the niche of my business, which is cleaning. I started [therefore] promoting vacuums on the aforementioned website, which is called Prime Industrial Vacuums.

This way, not only I can increase website traffic on both websites by inserting anchors and interlinks between the two; I also enhance the SEO of both the affiliate marketing website, as well as the business website. This will work toward the promotion of our websites within the search engine. By interconnecting websites with each other (organically, not in a spammy way), Google's algorithm creates a connection point which works as an escalator for our sites to further rank in position. The better our website position in the search engine, the higher the chance for potential website visitors is to buy the products we are promoting as affiliate marketers.

In this course I will therefore focus on creating a solid Search Engine Optimization structure for our website, as well as of course showing how to add and promote [other] online stores' products as affiliate marketers. 

If at the end of the course, or in the middle, or at any point you feel like you may have questions, or difficulties, do not hesitate to shoot me an email and I will try to be as helpful as I can trying to properly answer your questions.

Best,

Isli Hoxha
