“Affiliate review websites”
Before I go on to discuss this particular affiliate marketing strategy, I’ll say there is certainly more than one way to earn money as an affiliate marketer. My niche marketing strategy is simply one that works for me.
There are many ways to structure an affiliate review website.
1. Choose a website model
This will be the first thing that your targeted market will see. If you don’t know how, you can simply make use of the free sites that can help you in creating one. You will need to sign up in any of these free sites before you can start creating optimized, value-adding, and relevant content.
The content should be closely related to the chosen niche that you are promoting. Such contents need to be something that the targeted market will drool for. Depending on a particular niche you’re promoting, you can use strategies, tips, reviews of product/service, and unique information. Don’t forget to optimize your headlines, paragraphs, sub-headlines, links, and other components of the landing page.
2. Choose a Product or Product line
It’s important you choose the right product or product line for you.
If you go with a multiple product review site strategy, don’t forget to consider related products to promote. For example, if the focus of your niche marketing strategy is promoting physical products, then you may well find digital products related to your niche. Usually there are “how to” digital products and/or membership sites you can promote to people buying the physical products you promote.
3. Choose a Domain Name
There are 2 approaches to choosing a domain name for an affiliate review website:
Keyword / Branding
I’ve used both domain strategies and both work. For a pure review website, I’d go with a domain with a keyword in it. For example, if you review Cars, go with something like “CarsReviews.com”. From that I think you get the idea. Secondly I’d go with a domain with a Brand in it. For example, if you review Cars, go with something like “HondaCars Reviews.com”
You can go for both branding and a keyword by adding in a branding title resulting in a domain such as “DebbiesWashingMachineReviews.com.”
4. Choose a website platform
I like WordPress and Blogger. Maybe you prefer Joomla, Drupal, or an online website builder.
Although not impossible to change platforms and/or themes after a site is built, it’s a fair amount of work. Therefore, choose carefully to avoid having to revamp your website once it’s built.
5. Plan Your Initial Articles
when I got started with my first pure review website, I added a batch of reviews right away. It worked, but with new projects, I take a more patient approach. I add purely informative articles first and then add my reviews in about a month. The purely informative articles have no affiliate links. Once I add reviews I link to the reviews (and other money pages) from the informative articles.
6. Add money pages – reviews and other money pages
Reviews are great for pre-selling, but they aren’t the only way to pre-sell as an affiliate. Once you have a solid collection of reviews published, it’s time to add more pre-selling pages that target keywords so that you can generate more sales.
For example, a great money page is building charts comparing a sub-group of products in your product-line. Consumers want to quickly compare the features of a particular group of products (i.e. models). An example would be Cars under $18,000/-.
7. Promote your review website & Drive Traffic
If you’re starting out, you’ll probably focus on free traffic from the search engines. You can promote your site/blog through different Tactics you can Visit my site through clicking on Links Search Engine Optimization and Backlinking.
After creating an ideal landing page, you can now proceed to driving targeted traffic to your niche. There are different techniques that you can use for this. Driving traffic to your site is not just the main aim but you also need to convert such traffic. It is vital that you’re able to target the appropriate buying keywords which are related to the niche. You can either target high traffic or long tail relevant keywords. How are you going to achieve this? You can start by finding at least 5 high traffic and 5 long-tail relevant keywords.
For each of your keywords, you will need to write an article and make sure that all the articles are optimized. Submit all the articles to 5 article directories like ezinearticles, goarticles, etc. You also need to submit the articles to bookmarking websites. Determine the top performing keywords or articles and create at least 3 videos. Again, you will need to submit the videos to sharing sites. If you can do these things properly, you can now again repeat the entire formula with new keywords.
8. Continue adding non-affiliate link content
You want to avoid your review website from appearing as thin affiliate website. The way to do this is to add content that does not contain affiliate links. This is simple to do. In any niche or product-line there is a great deal you can write about.
Besides, the more detailed information you provide about your product(s), the more credible you’ll be to your website visitors. If you establish credibility, you’ll improve the chances they click your affiliate links and buy based on the information in your review site.
The review website is a fantastic niche marketing strategy that I’ve used to generate a decent income. It’s scalable and relatively easy for anyone to use to get started with affiliate marketing.
Hope it Helps You!
