This week's feature is all about article marketing success, and specifically how to use article marketing to make affiliate sales.
Article marketing is great for getting quality inbound links, but you can also use articles to promote affiliate programs directly.
Dan Ho has mastered the formula for using article marketing as a niche affiliate, a niche super affiliate that is, and he shares all the details at his AAW site. And it's not just a how-to site, but also a done-for-you service... and a lot cheaper than you might expect. 😉
This formula that Dan shares is super simple, and can set you up to earn long-term passive income as an affiliate. It's simple in that it cuts out all the usual marketing stuff that trips everyone up: list building, creating websites, video marketing, etc. It requires NONE of that...
Personally I prefer the "over-achiever method" of becoming a total market leader in a niche. That said, I realize it's not for everyone (as we learned in Paul's video), and some would prefer a simple quiet way to make money online - without all the fuss, and without the huge learning curves and time investments.
And of course, this could easily be worked into larger models if you ARE an over- achiever like me. 😀
Dan Ho's affiliate method and Affiliate Article Writers website was recently featured in Allan Gardyne's newsletter titled Affiliates Who Keep Things Simple (a great read if you want to learn more about AAW). If you're not familiar with Allan Gardyne, he's like the GRANDFATHER of affiliate marketing. His site, newsletter & forum have been online for ages.
What is AAW?
I was checking out AAW earlier today, which is short for Affiliate Article Writers if you haven't picked up on that yet!, and was really impressed with everything Dan offers there.
They research products that are proven sellers (no research!). They also research the relevant keywords & phrases (no keyword testing!). They stay on top of trends, so you don't have to. You can even get an affiliate site created, with pre-sell content and artwork and everything (affiliate links already included!) - for less than $15/mo. Now that's a deal.
It's membership based, priced at just 29.99, and includes regular training teleconferences and a members-only community forum for ongoing help.
The coolest part about it is that they focus on lifetime programs, or recurring commissions. This allows you to "build equity" in your online system, so you'll continue earning your affiliate commissions long-term even if you choose to stop using the AAW service. Dan says, "the service is now coming up on 3 years since inception and many students have done exactly that."
If you're more the hermit type that Paul Evans described in his video, and you're looking for something super simple - and step by step - then you'll want to check this out. It may be perfect for you:
The copy is a bit long (or maybe that's just me) so I recommend you read Allan Gardyne's overview, and then click the link above and scroll down to the good part - the details.
I have a friend who is using this article marketing / affiliate combo method successfully, after spending months on another method and not earning enough to cover hosting costs (yet). It definitely works, if you're willing to dive in and stick to it exclusively.
Check it out and let me know what you think!
