What is affiliate marketing?
In a nutshell, affiliate marketing is about sending traffic to a vendor’s site. The vendor will pay you a commission if the people you send to their site buy anything they may happen to be selling.
Amazon is one such vendor that has a very, very popular affiliate program.
Amazon - and its subsidiaries in several countries - will pay you commissions for sales you generate through your website.
For this to happen, you will need to have a site ranking high in Google and other search engines. These high rankings will mean folks who are searching for products will see your website in Google's search results, click on your website, read your article - and then hopefully click on your affiliate link, go to amazon and buy one or more products.
Since they clicked on your affiliate link and landed on amazon, your site acted as a bridge between Google and amazon.
And since you sent them to amazon, you will get a commission for products they might buy while on the site.
This is what affiliate marketing is all about.
You create websites, rank those sites on Google and other search engines, get traffic to your site - and send your visitors to the merchants site. In this case, the merchant is amazon. And you get paid commissions for whatever the people you sent to the merchant's site buy.
But before you will be able to build such websites that rank high on Google, you will need to learn SEO - or search engine optimization.
SEO is the process of getting organic - or free - traffic from Google and other search engines.
Without a sound knowledge of the various SEO techniques and principles, you will not be able to rank your websites in the search engines and get any organic traffic to your sites.
Which is why a large part of this course is about SEO.
All aspects of SEO are discussed in this course - from the fundamentals of SEO to advanced SEO concepts like silos that can help your pages rank with hardly any external backlinks.
Here's a detailed overview of what is covered in this course ...
A niche is a market segment that caters to a very specific group of people.
Before you can build a website, you will need to know which segment of people your website will target.
Ideally, your website should target to a very clearly defined niche. It simply cannot be everything to everyone.
Since amazon sells products, your niche has to be one that has several products being sold on amazon.
In this course, several niche research ideas are discussed. By applying these ideas, you will easily and quickly be able to find lucrative niches that have hot products on amazon.
Once you have selected a bunch of niches that you find interesting, you will need to identify keywords within the niche that you would want to target.
This is possibly the most important part of the entire SEO process. You will need to select keywords that are fairly easy to rank - and can generate revenues if your site is to earn revenues month after month.
Selecting great keywords is one of the most important tasks an SEO does. It's critical that you target the right keywords - or else no amount of SEO might be able to help you rank your site.
