How To Become A Super Affiliate Marketer

First.....What is an affiliate marketer?

An affiliate marketer is someone who earns a commission selling or promoting the products and services of other companies.
Super affiliates are those who are extremely successful affiliate marketers. They can earn six figures a year and they do it all from the comfort of their home. It's a tremendously freeing lifestyle.

Interested? Here's how to become a super affiliate marketer.

Step #1 Build a website on a niche topic. Ideally, it'll be a topic you enjoy because you'll be writing and talking about your topic often. For example, if you're a parent and you enjoy discussing better parenting you might choose to create a parenting website. You can choose a tighter niche if there's a lot of competition in your industry. For example, organic parenting or parenting special needs children.
Step #2 Search online to find quality products and services you want to represent. These products and services will be directly related to your website topic. If your topic is organic parenting, then the products and services you're an affiliate for will be natural or healthy par enting items and services.

You can find these products and services by searching affiliate networks and directories. You can also look to see if your favorite companies have an affiliate program. Most companies today do recognize the benefit of having affiliates promoting them online.

Step #3 Add your content. The next step is to make sure you have an abundance of quality and informative content on your website. Your primary value to any prospect or potential customer is to provide information. It’s how they’ll learn to trust your opinion. It’s what will bring them back to your website and it’s what will motivate them to click on your affiliate links and ads to make a purchase. Much of your content will also pre-sell the products and services you represent.

For example, you might write an article or a report on 15 ways to be a better parent. When relevant you might link to a product or service that you’re discussing. For example, if you say that to be a better parent you should occasionally treat yourself to a night out and hire a babysitter, you might make the word babysitter a link to a website that helps parents find trustworthy babysitters. If your reader clicks through and makes a purchase, you earn a commission.

As you can see, content is perhaps the single most important aspect of being a super affiliate. You can provide content in the form of:
  • Articles
  • Reviews
  • Comparison charts
  • Videos
  • Reports
  • Online courses
  • Checklists
  • eBooks
  • Audio messages
  • Newsletters

3 simple rules to great content

content idea
There are only a handful of things that differentiate great content from not so great content. Learn to master these few tactics and improve your content.

Step #1 - Write conversationally, Conversational content is content that is written in a friendly tone. It’s almost personal - as if you were writing your article, blog post or report specifically for the person reading it. Conversational content is written using informal language. Instead of saying, ‘Business people write content’ you would say, ‘You write content…’

Conversational content often breaks a few grammar rules when it makes sense. For example, you might write an incomplete sentence. For impact. You might use ellipses. “…” .to create effect and to draw the eye through your article.

Make sure when you break grammar rules that there’s a reason for it. Breaking them just to break them is - well, maybe fun and a bit rebellious, but it’s not productive.

Step #2 - Embrace your personality and voice,
Your personality and voice are one of your biggest assets. They help differentiate you. They help you create and strengthen your brand. If you’re sarcastic naturally, then your content can and should be sarcastic too; when relevant and appropriate. If you’re sentimental then your content will reflect that. It’s much easier to embrace your personality than to fight it. And it makes great content.
Study the content of writers that you like and read often. How do they share their voice and personality?

Step #3 - Make sure your content is easy to read and understand
We’re talking about formatting here. Many people tend to get a bit carried away with formatting. There are so many underlined, bulleted, and bolded words that you’re not sure where your eye is supposed to go. Instead of enhancing the reading process, it makes it more difficult. It’s distracting.

Simple formatting is best. Simple formatting may include bold or underlined subheadings. You might have either bullets or numbers but probably not both. (Sometimes both are okay depending on the article content and information.)

Pay attention to the content you find easy to read and the content that seems distracting. Is there too much formatting? Not enough? When the article isn’t easy to read, what would you do to fix it? What would make it easier to read?

Learning a few simple web content strategies can help you generate the results you’re looking for. You’ll receive more incoming links - backlinks are great for seach engine optimisation (SEO). You’ll receive more readers and traffic. And you’ll likely receive more customers. The better your content, the faster you’ll be able to grow your business.

Aspire to be a super affiliate
One final word about becoming a super affiliate - always strive to provide the best for your website visitors. The best content, the best quality products and the best information. When they trust you, like you and value your information, they’ll click on your links and make purchases.

To your success!
