Affiliate Marketing Revised

Everything you think you know about building an affiliate business is wrong. The tactics of the past few years just don’t work anymore. If you play by the old rules, you will lose this game.

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 that doesn’t mean it’s easy.

The bad news…

And to make matters worse, you’ve taught to do it the hard way. You’ve been told to find quality products. Next to look for easy keywords to target. Then to use keyword-based advertising to send visitors to the product. And just enjoy the commissions. But it doesn’t work.

Forget keywords

There was a time when this worked. But it’s just too competitive to use keywords now. It’s time for a paradigm shift.

A brand new formula

There is a solution to this problem. Follow this method and win again…

  • Start using CPA marketing
  • Instead of researching keywords, research demographics
  • Do image ad marketing

Get into CPA marketing

CPA means Cost Per Action. It’s so much easier than promoting products. Because your visitor doesn’t have to buy anything. Your commission is generated when they complete an “action”. Like completing a survey. And getting them to do this is so much easier.

Do demographics research

Keywords are no longer relevant (you’ll see in a minute). So spend your time doing demographics research. Once you’ve picked the CPA offer to promote. Then go to a site like Quantcast.com. And research what kinds of people will be interested.

Do image ad marketing

So far, you’ve got your CPA offer and your target demographics. You can advertise directly to them on display networks. And let images do the work. And you don’t need to know or buy a single keyword. Plus you’re going to save a ton of money. Keyword ads are expensive, but image ads are still cheap.

Summing it up

This is truly a quick cash concept. Because it’s free to get started in CPA. You can buy image ad clicks for a fraction of keyword ad clicks. Display networks let you do demographics targeting. And getting them to take an action is much easier than making a sale.
