Here’s a great question I got asked recently;
“I have looked through your multiple program and look very interesting, however, I am a little confused. I’m pretty structured individual and I usually need to have a certain order in which to do things.
I would ask from you in what order would I follow these programs you have laid out for other to use? i.e. Should I start with writing articles, should I use all those promo tools? I don’t have a specific website yet.
Do I have to create a website in order to use all those promo tools? If so, what kind of website are we talking about?
It looks like I should be creating a Internet Business website somewhat like what you have and then use all the Promo Tools on the site (Articles, Signature Ads, Emails, Text Links, etc.) Please advise as I would like to get something started soon but not sure what order to do it in.
It looks like if i create a website and and use all those promo tools on my site, that might be the fastest way to get started?
In answer to John’s questions, yes, it is better to have your own website/blog to promote affiliate offers (and especially your own list) but when you’re first starting out with affiliate marketing this can be quite overwhelming.
What I’d recommend is to work on getting your first squeeze page and/or blog up and running but while you’re doing that start promoting via other methods that can get you results from right away.
Some of those methods include:
Youtube videos can get insane amounts of views (in the tens or even hundreds of millions!). Create short, funny or controversial videos and upload them to Youtube. Put your affiliate link in the video’s description for lots of free, targeted traffic.
Join the most popular forums in the niche that you’re targeting and put your affiliate link in your forum signature. Add value to the forum by posting helpful suggestions or by responding to other’s questions.
While you’re doing the above promotions, work on setting up your own squeeze page and/or blog. Over time you’ll be able to use the methods discussed above to drive traffic to your own sites. You can then promote affiliate offers on your blog or by emailing your list.
