Increasing Website Visitor
Last time we discussed ways of increasing the
value to you of each visitor who arrives at your website.
If you recall we looked at adding additional
monetization models -
big ticket items on your website
ways to incorporate a travel and property business into your site somehow
(some students have already told me about some great plans they have for
doing this, well done)
building a list...
Today I'd like to share a brand new resource that shows you exactly how to turn affiliate programs into powerful, long term
If you have a goal of making a living online and maybe
$50,000 to $100,000 a year is the sort of number you are aiming for initially, you may want to raise your sights after reading
27 year old entrepreneur Jeremy Palmer made $1 million in affiliate program commissions last
year in only his second year online, and he's decided to share his experiences
with others in a new ebook that shows exactly how he did it...
Did you get that?
In his first year as an affiliate, he earned $100,000 from his websites.
During his second year as an affiliate he made over $1 million.
In two years, he has built more than 100 affiliate sites which generate a
fortune in affiliate commissions, and he actually shows you a couple of them in his
new book so you get an idea of how he builds his little money-makers.
Late last year, he won Commission Junction's Horizon Award for Innovation.
Referring to Jeremy's efforts, Commission
Junction says, "Jeremy has become one of the most productive, compliant, and responsive publishers in the Commission Junction network...".
His newly published first ebook High Performance Affiliate Marketing
describes exactly what he does and how he does it.
I read everything I can about online business and I can tell you there's a lot
of junk coming out these days, especially about building sites to generate
In a break with this tradition, Jeremy doesn't give
readers any Adsense tips which is quite interesting.
The latest trend has been towards generating
Adsense clicks on as many pages as possible, but he has taken the traditional
route by promoting affiliate programs and it has paid off for him handsomely.
In fact, he's so good at building affiliate sites
that he finds he can make more from affiliate commissions than from Adsense
clicks, so he's stuck with what works....
In his book, Jeremy doesn't try to sell you expensive tools or software, and he
hasn't loaded the book up with his own affiliate links to other products like
most of these guys do.
There's a couple of them in there, but they add
value to the book and there aren't anywhere near as many links out to extra
products as most of the ebooks you read these
He also gives readers access to his private forum if you have any questions,
which not too many people do these days for their introductory level products.
The book is an easy read at 140 pages and he takes you through the whole process
of how he does keyword research, how and why he selects certain products to
promote over others, what he thinks about as he designs and creates his websites and
how he gets traffic to his sites as well.
I bet you're wondering what makes the million-dollar affiliate different from
you and me?
There are little clues all the way through the book and you may not pick some of
them up on the first read through.
For example, Jeremy explains how he selects the best merchants to promote, and how he identifies
the best converting products.
He shows you an example of an effective landing page and explains why it attracts
sales when so many sites can't make affiliate programs pay.
Now bear in mind, these aren't your typical Solo Build It
content pages designed for attracting search engine traffic.
These are pages that are specifically
designed to get people to click through to the merchant to buy a product...the
sort of pages you'd have people arriving on from your Google Adwords, Yahoo
Search or email marketing campaign, or maybe from an article or press release
Or maybe you could use this design for some of
your tier three pages after your tier two pages have PRE-sold your visitors on
taking your recommendations.
I looked at what he's done and thought to myself,
"Ah ha, I see why he makes so much money...".
I think you will as well.
He also tells you where he buys his advertising and why. He then shows you how he tracks the results to find out what's working and what isn't.
In addition to all this, you'll learn how to write effective Google and Yahoo
Search ads that will make people want to click on them to visit your site.
"One of the biggest factors that has contributed to my success as an affiliate is keyword research,"
Jeremy says in the book.
He then goes on to describe what he calls the "Keyword Buying Cycle".
You need to know this if you want to attract website visitors who are
ready to buy and after learning this, I don't think you'll never
look at the Solo Build It Brainstorm It! tool in the same way again ;-)
If affiliate marketing is going to be one of your website's monetization models
(and it should be), I strongly recommend you study this section carefully as it
will help you to get the absolute best value for each page you build on your
It's insights like these that help make Jeremy a million-dollar affiliate and he
lays them all out for you so you can model what he has done for yourself.
Could you also be a million-dollar affiliate?
That sure would be nice, wouldn't it?
You can find out how he does it
I'd love to hear your thoughts and any insights
you get from reading Jeremy's ebook.
I don't recommend many products to you through
this coaching course, but this fits in so well with what you are doing with your
Solo Build It site that I recommend you grab a copy and read it right now.
I know you'll learn a lot from this young million
dollar earning affiliate. By having more of your visitors leaving your site via
an affiliate link instead of the 'Back' button, your visitor value could easily
be twice as much or even more than it would be otherwise.
It makes sense to learn from those who have
already done what you want to do, and Jeremy is a great role model for all of us
That's all for today. You've got your
P.S. And if you have any questions after you read
Jeremy's book let me know. I'll do my best to answer them for you.
