Answer this “Niche Affiliate Income” Question [Poll]

Question about Niche Affiliate Income

Question about Niche Affiliate IncomeMy brother (Gene) loves to make fun of me because I’m always changing my mind.

One day, I decide to do one project.  The next day; I get inspired and try something else.  (I guess this comes from having too many ideas I want to implement.)

What’s my point?

Last week, I wrote a blog post about a “niche affiliate income” case study I decided to do via Twitter.

A lot of people responded positively to this post.  Some even emailed me privately; asking for step-by-step details.

After doing the Twitter-thing for a week, I realized something –>

It’s really hard to describe a process in 140 characters!!!

Basically, I wanted to give great content over Twitter.  But it’s freakin’ hard to do it in a succinct manner.

Niche Affiliate Income Case Study

Niche Affiliate Income Case StudyMy affiliate marketing strategy has always focused on building large scale sites.  I feel this is the only way to create long-term value with an online business.

Stop Commission Theft! (How to Manually Cloak Affiliate Links)

Cloaked FigureRecently I decided to limit the number of guest posts on my site.  But this is the first time I specifically ASKED for an article.

The other day Cristina Ansbjerg of Optima Lifestyle left a great comment about how to cloak affiliate links.

I feel this is a majorly important technique that every affiliate marketer should learn.  That’s why I practically begged Cristina to write a quick tutorial.  And here’s what she’s come up with…

A few weeks ago Steve posted a very useful article about How to Bypass an Opt In Page.

Affiliate Marketers: How to Bypass an Opt In Page

Make money online with Videos

Video Player ImageIt’s been awhile since I’ve created a video.  So here’s one that’s specifically designed to help increase your affiliate commissions.

An annoying thing about being an affiliate marketer is being forced to send traffic to opt-in page.  In my opinion, this often decreases the money you can make from a product.

Here are a few reasons why:

  1. You’ve worked hard to presell the product not the opt-in page.
  2. You’ve already sent people to the opt-in page
  3. You know the product owner will steal your commissions by promoting other affiliate offers in their follow-up sequence (Yes…some do that!)
  4. You know the opt-in page doesn’t convert.

It really doesn’t matter why you want to avoid an opt-in page.  Sometimes it makes business sense to send prospects directly to the sales page.

The good news is you can easily do this with a free tool I found at the Fast Blog Finder site.
