Before online marketing channels emerged, the cost to market products or services was often prohibitively expensive, and traditionally difficult to measure. Think of national television ad campaigns, which are measured through consumer focus groups to determine levels of brand awareness. These methods are also not well-suited to controlled experimentation. Today, anyone with an online business (as well as most offline businesses) can participate in online marketing by creating a website and building customer acquisition campaigns at little to no cost. Those marketing products and services also have the ability to experiment with optimization to fine-tune their campaigns’ efficiency and ROI.
Sponsored search (also called sponsored links, search ads, or paid search) allows advertisers to be included in the sponsored results of a search for selected keywords. Search ads are often sold via real-time auctions, where advertisers bid on keywords.[19]:118[53] In addition to setting a maximum price per keyword, bids may include time, language, geographical, and other constraints.[19]:118 Search engines originally sold listings in order of highest bids.[19]:119 Modern search engines rank sponsored listings based on a combination of bid price, expected click-through rate, keyword relevancy and site quality.[21]
Organic SEO's flip-side offers up a paid method for marketing on search engines like Google. SEM provides an avenue for displaying ads through networks such as Google's Adwords and other paid search platforms that exist across the web throughout social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and even video sites like YouTube, which, invariably, is the world's second largest search engine.
If I’m going the super affiliate route I build “funnels” for my campaigns. So let’s say for example, I want to promote biz opp offers. I’ll create a funnel that has to do with “making money online” and then put multiple offers throughout the funnel. I’ll have a lead gen capture, but also have an email sequence, and multiple pages or even multiple websites in my funnel. It doesn’t take hundreds of pages unless I’m really wanting to secure some big SEO traffic at which point I’ll just put a blog on the site. My decision is always made by how long-term I want to be in the niche and how big the niche is.
Another great aspect of affiliate marketing is the ability to start a website about almost any topic in any industry. Everyone has a hobby or a passion that can make them money online. From favorite vacation spots to academic knowledge to career advice and anything in between, there is a perfect topic that you can leverage online. With a little help, finding that perfect affiliate niche topic isn’t very difficult at all. Learn more about how affiliate marketing works in this 30 minute video.

My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 5 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.

Decide how you'll promote the affiliate products. As mentioned, the easiest way is through a website or blog. Other successful affiliate marketers set up a squeeze page designed to build an email list, and then promote affiliate products to subscribers. Of course, your list should provide other non-sales information as people don't want to be sold all the time. Some affiliate marketers don't use a website at all, and instead use social media such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Many affiliate marketers use a combination of several marketing tactics.
