The Best Ways to Generate Commission
The first step to making money with affiliate marketing is figuring out which type of affiliate marketing you want to work with. There are many different types of programs available, and each one has its own advantages and disadvantages. These are the four most common types: CPA (cost-per-action), CPL (cost-per-lead), PPC (pay per click), and CPC (pay per click), and Chris M. Walker knows everything about each type, what they mean, and which one is the best.
CPA requires a little bit more work than some of the other affiliate marketing programs such as CPL, CPC, and PPC because what you’re selling has to convert before you make any money whatsoever – meaning someone needs to sign up or buy something after clicking your ad – so even though this type might not pay out nearly as much per click as PPC, if you have a high converting offer then this type of affiliate marketing can be very profitable.
CPL is the most common form of affiliate marketing and it’s also one that many people start out with because it tends to pay out pretty well – especially when combined with SEO – but what makes CPL different from CPC or PPC is that your ads will appear on other Web sites instead of having to create them yourself so all you need to do here really just focus on driving traffic.
PPC is a great way to make money with affiliate marketing because what you’re doing is paying for traffic and people who are already actively looking for a product or service, so in most cases, this type of advertising will be the easiest one to get started with.
CPC requires a bit more work than PPC but it’s also going to pay off just as well when done properly – assuming that your offer converts at least somewhat decently anyway. There are several ways which you can use here such as using Google Adwords (which tends to be my favorite), Bing Ads, Facebook Ads, and even banner ads if they have good conversion rates on their network although these ones tend not to convert nearly as well, unfortunately.
You can find potential offers by browsing search engine results pages or doing research on prospects’ targets via Web sites like Google Trends, Alexa Traffic Rankings, Compete Site Rank, Quantcast Site Rankings, Amazon Product Search, and so on.
The first step in making money with PPC is finding good keywords that people are actually searching for online. The competition will vary depending on the topic but if there are enough searches going around it won’t be hard at all to get traffic from these ads alone (especially when combined with SEO). There are several tools available that can help you determine which keywords to target.
