If you want to fail as an affiliate, create an online store. There are zillions of them and the market
is too crowded. It would be almost impossible to become established in today’s online market. However, if you can develop
a unique twist with valuable products then you might be on to a winner.
Search Engine Marketing
Search engine marketing has become a popular method for promoting offers. With search engine marketing
you specify how much you are willing to pay per click for specific traffic. For example, if you were promoting car insurance
you might bid 45 cents per click for the search term "compare car insurance".
When you market using search engines you use a link to your site in the advertisement, not directly
to the merchant. The page on your site that the advertisement links to can presell using approved creatives from the merchant.
Another method is to use a redirect on your webpage so when the visitors gets to the webpage you specified
on your site they are automatically redirected to the merchant’s site. When you want to promote a merchant using search
engine marketing never link directly to the merchants site. Always use redirects.
