How long till I get paid was the first question I had also when I first started learning about affiliate sales and Internet Marketing. Everybody wants to make money so this is an understandable question.
The answer, however, is a little more complicated than that.
There are many variables that will ultimately decide how long it will take a person to start making money as an online affiliate for any company.
For Instance…Is your website designed to be profitable and easy to navigate? Do you even have a website and a blog? Is it just you working alone or do you have a team of people working with you? How much money do you have to invest? If you have little money to invest in your business, are you at least willing to invest a serious amount of your own quality time? Do you have plenty of targeted website traffic?
Does your site make it available for your customers and visitors to opt-in to your newsletter?
As you can probably tell, I could go on with the questions!
Now lets instead discuss facts.
The fact is that most affiliates, up to 97%, fail to ever make money with affiliate marketing or any other type of Internet Marketing. This is because they are working by themselves and lack the personal commitment it takes to develop a real working knowledge of online marketing.
Another fact……As with any other serious business, monetary gain will take place when relationships are built and trust is earned. You can build those relationships and that trust very fast with disposable money and extra people or you can build it slower with less money and on your own.
Either way…. it must be built!
Now, more than ever before in history, the business of Internet Marketing and online affiliate sales can be extremely lucrative for those who are willing to gain the knowledge and put forth the effort required to be successful at it .
Instead of asking “how long does it take for online affiliates to make money”……. try telling yourself who cares if it takes 2 months or 2 years.
Just know that if you’re committed to what you do and also enjoy your work while remaining sure to keep it about helping others you can’t go wrong.
Any online affiliate or Internet Marketer who can grasp that will earn droves of money over time.
If your organic traffic is not what you think it should be, consider getting yourself a great keyword tool. I can’t stress enough that if you don’t do your homework you will not succeed in the business of online marketing. A really good keyword tool will allow you to see what terms and phrases your competition is using to consistently get high volumes of website traffic that you could be getting. It will allow you to decide on certain phrases and words that will be easier to rank in because of less or weaker competition. From there you just need to start marketing toward those certain phrases.
I personally have used and still use SemRush the whole time since I started my website and blog. This program has been very helpful to me because of the stats that I can see. For instance, if I want to research the phrase “skull heads” because maybe my website is going to sell “skull heads” then I would type “skull heads” in the search box minus the parenthesis. The site then proceeds to list out related keywords, CPC, competition, average volume and the trends. Every single time I write an article, no matter if it’s for this blog or another online article source, I always use this keyword tool to help develop my title as well as the other high traffic driving keywords. All you have to do is register for the free version. It works well and you can upgrade and get much deeper into the search terms if you choose. I tried Google’s keyword tool and I still use it sometimes, however, this one seems to give me more results.
The best thing to do is find the search terms and phrases in your niche that have just enough monthly website traffic so you can compete. Obviously if the term has too much traffic or is really high priced for pay per click then you should know it will be tougher to compete for organic traffic as well. Currently I have one paid traffic campaign and it cost $12.00 a month. All of the rest of the traffic for Peasants is free organic traffic. Anybody can do this. You just have to make sure you use every tool at your disposal and be smart about what you’re doing. Don’t put the cart before the horse so to speak.
Get yourself a great keyword tool and do your research. Help your website, blog or e-business succeed.
Website lacking in the traffic department? Have you tried everything you know to increase search engine traffic but still only getting dismal results? Don’t feel like you’re the only one! Generating true quality website traffic is the #1 road block to webmasters all around the world. Anybody can build a beautiful website with rich content that’s easy to navigate but without a dedicated flow of solid traffic to that website then that’s all it is and all it will ever be! Without the visitors your profits will be sour at best if you ever even earn a penny.
Hopefully you have completed the other tasks that a good webmaster should have done such as proper optimization by way of keywords being used correctly, alt text for your pictures, testing interior links, making sure of easy navigation for your visitors and started to build some quality backlinks for your site. Yes….it is true…targeted one-way backlinks is where your hoards of visitors will come from. Now I know that some of you more experienced webmasters are at this minute saying to yourself “yeah yeah…..we know all about the backlinks” . My response is I certainly hope you do. Quality one-way related backlinks is the main necessary ingredient needed to increase your search engine traffic. They will determine if you win or lose in the world of online marketing. You see the major “search engine crawlers” or “internet soldiers”, as I like to refer to them, are the very robots that will bring that lovely traffic to your website. You will be able to tremendously increase your traffic if the search engines know they can trust you. The only way they can know that is if you have hundreds if not thousands of other articles and links all over the internet pointing to your website. Once the search engines begin to see the related backlinks you will have effectively increased your traffic. How much it is increased will depend on the amount and quality of the back links along with proper on-page optimization.
So now we’re at the meat and potatoes of this handy little article. Let me get right to it! If you spent 8 hours a day writing quality articles and installing quality one-way links all pointing to your website it would take about 7 months to a year or maybe longer to get the kind of website traffic you truly need. You should have about 1000 links and articles but to be quite honest 3,000 to 5,000 or more would be even better. If you have that kind of time then go ahead and build them slowly. If you don’t have that kind of time and you need to be making good money now by increasing true quality website traffic then check out some of these alternatives.
You’ll be seriously glad you did.
