    Excellent, meaty article, Lynn. I especially like your answer for #6 that deals with the intent of the person searching and then basing your content on that.

    Keyword research is one of the most revealing things a person can do online because it shows you what people want. After you determine that, you simply give them what they want.

    Simple but brilliant!

    I’m thinking of an ecommerce site around a particular niche, so I’m beginning my research of how this works. If I have agreements with two different vendors, is it possible to sell two items that are from different vendors in one shopping cart sale?

      Hi Deborah,

      What type of agreements are you referring to – are you planning to drop ship, or be an affiliate for those vendors/merchants? If you are an affiliate, you won’t actually have a shopping cart. You simply send people to *their* shopping cart. So in that case it would not be possible, no.

    I think that blogs are still an option number one to start. It takes time until someone learns how to get good backlinks

      Um, yeah – but you need backlinks no matter what type of site model you have, blog or otherwise. Links = Traffic.

    I already have a question (LOL): what do you mean by: ‘A lot of people offer 100% commission on the product, basically paying their competitors to build their niche list of buyers.’??

    How does the person who created the product benefit from giving away 100% commission, to competitors building their own list of niche buyers?

    • Lynn Terry

      Because the competitors who promote your product do it for the commission, and they are building YOUR list. It’s best known as the $7 Secrets method using a script by Jonathan Leger that comes with the report that explains it. Yes, all for $7 even!

      You can read more about it here:

      Basically the affiliate earns 100% commission on the sale of the low-cost info product, but the buyer purchases from your page and is of course in YOUR customer list.

    Thanks for sharing so much useful info about affiliate marketing here, both in this post as well as in your previous posts. It’s as good as some of the paid courses out there i’ve seen on this same topic.

    Can’t wait to read your next post about using pen names which I’m particularly interested in….oh and i was just kidding in my previous post about wanting to know your pen names, i know that’s 1 of the “top secrets” of Ms Lynn Terry which will never ever be revealed :-)

    Hello, I want to establish an affiliate program for a car care kits with retail costs ranging from $19.95 to $39.95 (plus S&H) and am willing to pay commissions ranging from 25-35%.

    That sounds like like a very high commission based on reading various posts. Am I crazy?
