Advertising Your Affiliate Web Site

Standard

By choosing to run a web site that deals strictly with affiliate sales can be a very profitable venture, however it will take a considerable amount of time to advertise and get the word out.

In a nut shell, affiliate sales is about signing up for accounts with other web sites, advertising their products and providing a link to them, and when a person buys that product, you get a commission from the sale.

It sounds pretty simple but there is a bit more to it. Here are a few areas that you will need to concentrate on.

• Time
• Link Building
• Blogs
• Blog and Forum Posting

Organization

Time is not an endless resource so the better you plan and utilize your time, the better the results. Advertising does not need to be expensive but it is very time consuming. Do not try and do everything all at once. Break down your day into deferent time frames, and do one thing at a time before moving on to the next thing.

Example:

6:00 – 7:00 ———– Handle customer service emails
7:00 – 8:00 ———– Link building
8:00 – 10:00 ———–Blog writing
10:00 – 12:00 ——— Blog Posting
Lunch
1:00 – 2:00 ———— Forum posting
2:00 ——————— Customer service and misc. chores

End of the day be sure and check all your links and make sure that they are all working correctly.

This is not set in stone but rather an example about how you can utilize your time in a productive manner. In fact you might want to break that schedule down into a daily basis. Spend one day doing link building, the next day Blog posting, next day forum posting etc..

The point being is that you want to break down each area and spend a certain amount of time doing just one thing then moving on. Consistency in the process of doing all these advertising chores will give you long term results.

Link Building

This is the process where you research on the web other web sites that deal with products and services that are similar to yours. Then you contact the web site owner and work out an arrangement to have them advertise your link on their web site in exchange for you advertising their link on your web site.

Blog And Forum Posting

This is a process where you search for Blogs that are either discussing or reviewing the types of products that you are advertising on your web site. Then you start making intelligent, non-Spam type comments about the blog article and at the end of your comment you have a standard signature that has a link back to your web site.

Time

As you can see, all these chores take up a huge amount of time but not really any money. You can decide to try and pay someone to do these advertising chores for you, however you would still have to take the time to check their work and make sure they are actually doing as you wish. If you truly want to generate an income through affiliate sales, be sure that you control the entire process.
