The simple method for making money from Internet is Affiliate Marketing. It involves joining an affiliate network (like Clickbank, CJ etc), selecting the right product, getting the affiliate link and selling it online. You will be earning commissions for each sales. Though it looks simple but in reality, you should be careful in each steps. Out of these steps, I would say selecting an affiliate product and selling the affiliate product are the crucial steps. Selling a product involves lot of research and experimentation. There are no secret formulas to sell products but the strategy that you use matters.
From my experience and observations I have identified 3 best ways to sell products online. In general, you could sell via paid methods using Google Adwords or Yahoo Search Marketing and also free of cost via below ways.
#1 Sell Using Article Marketing.
One of the best way to sell affiliate product is through article marketing. The affiliate income from article marketing gives you 100% profit, as it has no investment. You have to write articles related to your affiliate product. Explain the product features, its specialties and its limitations. Embed the affiliate links in the article. Submit your article to article directions. I would recommend, Hubpages.com & Squidoo.com which are the best sites to submit your articles. Generally, these articles are ranked good in search engines especially Google. Writing a product review is one of the best idea to quickly sell a product, learn how to review a product ? and also few article marketing tips.
#2 Sell Using Forum Marketing.
Join a forum which is closely related to your product. To find such forums, you have to search Google like ” + forums” which lists top forums related to your product. Join few of the best forums and add your affiliate links in the signatures. Generally, forums allow you to add links to the signature and that link will be shown when you post a comment in forum threads. Check the forum policy first before putting affiliate links because few forums don’t allow to add affiliate links in signatures. Understand few Forum marketing tips which helps you to effectively sell products.
#3 Create An Affiliate Blog.
Go to blogger.com and register a blog. Write 10 to 15 articles related to the affiliate product. You should write articles on titles like, “How To”, “Tips For”, “What is”, “Ways To”, “Steps To”, “Reviews”, “buy”, “purchase”, “order” etc. Every article should speak about your affiliate product. Add affiliate links to the top bar, side bar, bottom of your blogs. Also, add affiliate links inside the articles where ever appropriate. Link your blog from other articles that you submit to Hubpages or Squidoo and also from forum signatures. Most important, use selective keywords in your blog which drives targeted visitors to buy your affiliate product. Write 1 article per week to keep your blog fresh and active. Learn to get free traffic for affiliate sales.
In actual, these are repeat/duplicate ways to sell products. You could select more than one affiliate product and promote using these same methods. Affiliate marketing requires lot of experimentation’s because the results are hugely dependent on the product & its sales page. Selecting a quality product which solves the buyer problem and promoting via Quality sales page will easily makes more money.
