Best ways to get an audience for affiliate marketing – for beginners

affiliate marketing for beginners

Getting an audience for affiliate marketing is unlike any business model. Research is your important component. We show you the tools you need.

Starting out in affiliate marketing can be a daunting challenge. Not least because of the research and the avenues of information you will travel to get to your chosen destination. Below is a list of the best ways to get an audience. Choose a profitable niche, know the audience, stick with products you know and track your results.

Choose a Profitable Niche you are interested in

The first thing to do is find your niche. This can be something that you enjoy, think about everyday or have a wealth of information that you can share. Don’t choose a subject that is the most profitable that you know little about, especially if you want to get an audience.

When looking for a niche to tap into, think of it as a problem you can help solve. Some of them include Japanese knotweed. You could make YouTube videos, downloads and tips on the best actions to help treat it. If you are making content for a niche, try and find out what problems they have and also type of questions they might need to answer.

Do you find something in your daily life really interesting? Is there something that you spend a lot of time reading about, learning or improving? We all have an interest of some kind. Turn that interest, hobby or favourite pastime to a profitable niche. You can follow steps like writing about it to see if this is something you can become an affiliate.

Know the Audience

Who is your audience? It may sound like a broad question, but in reality this is the best way to speed up the process of targeting. You will see from Facebook Ads and Google Ads, that you can target demographics. These demographics include location, age, language, interests and lifestyle to name but a few.

Using this level of information helps you test different audiences. If you test 18-24 age group that are interested in Hockey in London for example, you might see that it can be pretty broad. That is where you will need to target even further. Having the knowledge behind what other factors make them interested in your blog can help determine the scale of your audience. This will help you increase your reach, finding those who might not be on social media for example and what they look for.

It is also useful to search via websites such as ubersuggest. You can search the keywords of your niche and see how many searches they get. It also has tools that allow you to find other words that might be suitable.

Similar websites that already exist, search through their twitter followers. Follow them back and look at the type of followers they have. Are they similar to what you had in mind?

Stick With Products You Know

The niche you have chosen will need to be part of what you are interested in and that you have a passion for. You might also be very knowledgeable about a niche such as a sport. This sport will already have a large following of like minded people. Setting your audience will help because the audience might be like you. Affiliate marketing is all about reading the room and finding out where to get interest for your blog or links.

 

  • Could you stand up and talk to a group of people about this subject?
  • Do you spend hours upon hours talking, watching video about it?

 

If yes to those questions, then this is a niche that could be the best for you. You afterall, are going to be putting the effort in. If this is something that you are doing just because it is profitable, then you’ll get bored. The thing is, affiliate marketing is a longer term goal rather than a shorter one.

Using google you can search to find the questions your customers are asking. This is a simple and effective way to understand what kind of blogs, social media posts and youtube videos you can make. Click on those searches and keep going, see how many questions there are related to this and list them all in a spreadsheet.

Track Your Affiliate Stats and Results

Understanding how to get an audience is one thing, but seeing how you are doing is critical. Afterall, if you don’t think it is working, how do you improve? Big companies have entire departments dedicated to continuous improvement. With affiliate marketing, this is another crucial step. You have found your audience, managed to target them via email, paid ads and social media. Once you have built a campaign and sent it, how do you know it has worked?

Google Analytics is a must for any blog out there. Let’s face it, Google are the biggest search engine, but they are more than that. It allows you to see just how many visitors come to your blog.

Google Campaign URL builder is another must-have. This can also be used to give you much more data on what links are clicked. This is especially good if you are sending emails. You can use this to track each and every visit through the Campaign section of analytics.

Of course, Clickbank, JVZoo etc will also have methods of tracking sales, they are great, but do consider other methods too. You can track sales, yes, but if it is not a sale and visitors drop off at certain points, you then ask yourself why. This can be down to many things such as the button not being visible,  wrong images etc. Tweak those things until they start converting.

The Article Master series is very popular, they offer no restriction PLR packs. Over the years many people have found this useful, even me! If you want to use content or digital products to sell on your blog, then PLRs are a great way to do this.

Here is some of the sales pitch:

Are you looking for way to potentially make hundreds of thousands of dollars on the internet without having to work hard? Private Label Rights are the most desired investment that you can make online right now. Private Label Rights, or PLR, consists of content that is written and sold for you to do whatever you want. You can purchase PLR from writers and sell it to businesses for a considerable profit without having to quit your day job.

The internet is still the information highway. The main reason for using the internet is to get information. Information is provided by PLR content. Once you own PLR, you can use it to sell to websites or even as an e-book.

E-books and reports are just one way that you can use PLR content to make money. Other ways that you can use this special content include newsletters as well as press releases. When you purchase PLR content from a writer, you purchase full rights to the product. This means that you can break it up any way that you want and use it for your own profit and enjoyment.

Looking at this download, there are tons of items that fulfil some great niches. They include: Hiking and Camping, Wart Removal, Hobby Articles and Web Design. So the niches are varied. Each of the PLR ebooks seems to be well written and certainly has lots of information on them. You could even use some of these ebooks as articles or split them up. However others might have done the same so ensure you are using them in context.

If you are looking for a quick way to add ebooks to your website, then this is a good place to start. I would suggest changing some of the titles and add in your own front cover.
