Affiliate marketing is a good way to promote a product or service as long as the ad is truthful. The problem is that some dishonest affiliate marketers put out ads with exaggerated claims or misleading information to get people to click. They may say anything to get you to click on their ad because they have an incentive – getting paid. Check out the infographic we created to explain this.
Let’s say you have a promotions page where you’re promoting a product via affiliate links. If you currently get 5,000 visits/month at a 2% conversion rate, you have 100 referrals. To get to 200 referrals, you can either focus on getting 5,000 more visitors, or simply increasing the conversion rate to 4%. Which sounds easier? Instead of spending months building domain authority with blogging and guest posts to get more organic traffic, you just have to increase the conversion rate by 2%. This can include landing page optimization, testing your calls-to-action, and having a conversion rate optimization strategy in place. By testing and optimizing your site, you’ll get far better results with much less effort.
That’s the reality I live in, you guys. It really is possible. But you can’t expect it overnight. It takes time. Give it 6 months of your BEST EFFORT and I just about guarantee that by then, you will at the very least be earning a nice residual side income for you and your family. Once you start seeing REAL money coming in, you’ll be hooked and it’s only a matter of time before you quit your day job. I quit mine in under a year. Check out my story here.
Okay, so from that, it may be the case that a "funnel" is not just a home page, but the term "funnel" is used to refer to multiple items and not just the main landing page, is that right? But then how does all that work and appear, exactly? For instance, if someone lands on the home page, or some other single page which I imagine must be the "squeeze" page - the first thing people land on, right? - then where, how and when does this redirect page appear and take effect? Is that a pop up page that then redirects someone, after they first landed on the "squeeze," for instance?
Maybe you haven’t decided on a career yet. Or perhaps you’re lost, not knowing what to do, jumping from job to job. Going back to school may be a consideration, and there’s nothing wrong with that path. I went back to school in my late 30’s, and I don’t regret a second of it. In fact, I miss it. But there is a significant cost (and there won’t always be a job waiting for you at the end)
So I asked the Marketing Consultant to lower the commission we pay to the affiliate network to 5 percent. I wasn’t surprised a week later when he told me that we still did $200,000 of sales through them in a week. I then asked him to lower the commission to 1 percent. Once again, the affiliates delivered $200,000 per week in sales. Whatever these affiliate sites were doing to drive sales to Kogan.com, it didn’t change as our commission to them was lowered by 90 percent. This defied general economics principles, so I started to get very skeptical.

Do you have zero interest in an expensive mountain bike the company you are an affiliate of sells? Well, you probably don’t want to feature it on your blog, as it is extremely difficult to persuade readers (or anyone for that matter) that they should buy something you wouldn’t be caught spending a single penny on. When you are passionate about a product or–at the very least–interested in learning more about it, this will come through to your readers, engage them and better coax them to buy
