THE IMPORTANCE OF GREAT CONTENT IN AFFILIATE MARKETING

Introduction

“Content is the atomic particle of all marketing”

unkown

Narrow down to who your audiences are, and create content that will bring them back to your blog/site or social media page every time. How do you achieve this, by continuously offering high-quality content for free? The best strategy I recommend is to focus on the creation of great content that naturally incorporates affiliate links in text form. The content would attract visitors from search sites, as long as it remains useful, informative, and educating. You can, while it would indirectly “sell” relevant and useful products or services through simple and non-flashy text links. Provide readers with detailed information written in short, yet sweet paragraphs. Make use of digital assets—videos, GIFs, comparison charts, high-def images, infographics, etc.

It is vital to create and develop a relationship with your audience on a consistent basis, because they know what is currently converting and how their other top affiliates are performing. The better your relationship, the more information you will get from your followers. Content-rich articles get a better ranking and more organic traffic from Google. The number one way to get more affiliate sales is to educate your audience about the products, instead of just offering products. It is important that your readers are able to trust your content. If your readers begin to like you, they will try to support you throughout your affiliate marketing relationship.

1# Set Your Objectives

Success on any social media platform requires goals that are clear and measurable. How can you track and check for success and progress, if you do not know what the target is?

You want to create SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound. So “going viral” doesn’t count. These goals must align with the business objectives and must be an indicator of success. ii. Optimize your Profile

Making the perfect Twitter profile is an essential rule for strategic Twitter marketing. Your Twitter handle is your @niche, name, or your identifier on Twitter. This is important because it helps people locate and find you. The profile represents the brand identity, and this is what people associate you with on social media. It is the beginning of your marketing strategy, and thus important that you are thinking about it!

2# A compelling Profile

Use a profile picture that represents your niche. Use a username that is simple and reflects the name of your business. The name must also help people remember your business.

Write a great bio related to your business or industry niche. Having a great bio is a key element for any Twitter profile. This is your place to communicate to new visitors of your profile exactly what it is that you do. The Twitter bio is indexed by Google. It is the first point of contact for all prospective followers.

It is also important that you include the following in the bio; Location: include your physical location if you have one; you can also use “worldwide” or post a phone number.

Website: your homepage or a landing page where you want to drive customers.

Background image: include a Twitter background image to further display your company. Don’t leave it blank!

Pin some important tweet, Your pinned tweet is the first tweet people see when they visit your profile, so make it an interesting one that represents what’s going on with your brand. You can always change your pinned tweet!

Include keywords in your bio, like #digitalmarketing, #contentmarketing, etc. So, one smartest way to go about creating your Twitter bio is to add relevant keywords and hashtags.

3# Great Content

“Content is where I expect much of the real money will be made on the Internet, just as it was in broadcasting.” Bill Gate

Content marketing is a deliberate effort at giving away valuable information contents in order to retain a client for possible future sales. Study the interests of your followers and provide them with the content they value.

The most important Twitter marketing lesson is that every interaction with your customer matters.

As a result, you should be ready to provide the best customer experience all the time. Any content you put across on Twitter must be informative, interesting, interactive, personal, and promotional. Creative storytelling should always be a part of your advertising strategies. People like validation and reassurance, so take the time to give them that. Let them know you are there. Let them know that you care that they are following you, and you appreciate them.  It will only entice more followers.

Develop a content series, this will help you to create themed content every time.

Examples include:

  • Highlighting your customers
  • Sharing surprising facts about your industry
  • Profiling leaders in your space
  • Providing quick how-to tips in your space
  • Fun tweets

4# Share engaging videos and images

Videos do better when it comes to resolving and providing directions on the internet than written text. Video contents are taking over and ranking first on most search engines. People are three times more likely to engage with Tweets that include visual content. Videos and images are a great way to show your audience your product line or how to use an item you sell. Videos also make the content feel more personal. Images and videos in tweets help to increase your engagement. Today’s audiences are hungry for a visual experience. Include video, images, and GIFs in your Tweets. Visual content catches people’s attention when they’re scrolling through the feed.

This encourages deeper engagement.

5# Tweet at the right time

“People are getting started on their day. They’re taking the morning to get caught up on articles, scroll social media for news, and get their brains ready for work. Later in the afternoon people are heads-down on projects or in meetings, and they have less time to engage.” Nick Martin, Social Engagement Specialist

Tweeting during UK and East Coast office hours drives the best results in terms of clicks and engagement, and on weekends, mornings are still best.

6# Other tactics to use

  • Engage or host Twitter chats
  • Broadcast Live videos
  • Offer customer Service
  • Advertise on Twitter

i. Twitter chats

This is where you engage your followers to get a topic trending. These users discuss a specific topic simultaneously with a common or shared hashtag. It is done by hosting a Twitter chat on a topic relevant to your brand or expertise. Twitter chats usually last an hour and with prepared questions and discussion points. It is a great way to build trust with followers and to show loyalty to community members. A Twitter user usually initiates these chats at a specific time. It is an excellent way to share hashtags related to your niche business or industry. This helps others to learn the latest news and trends in an industry. Twitter Chats promote interactions and engagements on your profile. This gets people talking about your brand. It also creates a more personal experience between your audience and your business.

Initiating and participation in a Twitter chat shows how active your brand is on

ii. Live Videos

Broadcasting live videos is an excellent way to announce your brand. Live-tweeting is a potential way to get a topic trending on Twitter. It is when a user tweets, his/her reactions to an event as it happens. An example is the live-tweeting of a product launch. If you organize an event and want your followers to live tweet about it, then create your own hashtag. You can then share the event with your audiences, so they can spread and follow it.

iii. Advertise on Twitter

Promoted Tweets: This is a way to increase engagement and expand your reach to a wider group of users beyond your follower base. These ads look just like normal tweets, except that they are tagged “promoted” at the bottom, and they appear in the regular Twitter feeds of users who might not be following you yet.

Promoted Trends: A good way to get people talking about your business is through specific hashtag. Promoted Trends appear at the top of the trending topics list in the trends box on Twitter. They, too, are clearly labeled as “promoted,” but otherwise, these ads look exactly like other trending topics, and users can interact with them in the same ways. While Promoted Tweets target specific users, Promoted Trends are visible to all users during their promotion period, including on the Twitter mobile app.

iv. Drive Traffic to your website

Twitter can help you direct traffic to your website — there are a number of ways to include your website’s URL on your profile, as well as add links to your web pages and blogs in your tweets. You can drive traffic to your by;

  • Add your website URL beneath your bio on your Twitter profile.
  • Incorporate links to your website in your tweets.
  • Retweet any content that includes direct links to your website and/ or blogs other people have shared.
  • Embed tweets on your website with a Twitter Timeline.
  • Set up Twitter Ads to drive users to a specific landing page on your site.

Conclusion

Twitter is a great platform to build a strong audience and also make money. With the volume of daily tweets every day, no serious company in this competitive modern environment can ignore this powerful social media tool. Organizations can propel the brand and get it in front of their customers, if only they learn to use the platform more effectively. Books like the TWITTER GOLD and TWITTER STRATEGIES are perfect for individuals and organizations who want to go deep and make the best out of the great platform.

The Ultimate keys to harvesting emails

Introduction

Lead Magnet

A lead magnet is anything that you provide to someone in exchange for their contact information. They are designed to pull in, or “magnetize” more leads. Lead magnets are important, as they show your first opportunity at providing value to your audience. It’s your chance to shine and show people that you know what you are talking about, and show how excited you are to be talking about it. As the term might suggest, lead magnets are used for lead generation. A lead magnet is a great way to show that you care about what you are talking about. It’s a great way to build an audience. In marketing, a lead magnet is a free digital product or download. It encourages website visitors to leave their email addresses. And opt-in to an email list. That’s why lead magnets in marketing are called opt-in bribes and content upgrades. Lead magnets usually target website visitors who are not yet ready to buy any item from the store. If they leave their email addresses, they become secondary conversion goals. Businesses will send targeted marketing materials continuously until they convert into actual buyers. It often starts by creating a relevant free product. Online businesses try to identify different queries that bring them to traffic, and then create a free digital download around that topic. The most popular free digital downloads are e-books, white papers, newsletters, and webinars.
After creating a free product, online stores create forms for website visitors to complete to receive a free product. Businesses take their time in designing and optimizing these forms for a higher chance that visitors will leave their email addresses and opt-in to an email marketing list. Online businesses then place these forms on the most suitable part of the websites. Website visitors who engage the website may click the lead magnet, sign up, and complete the form. Once completed, the free product is immediately sent via email automation. The website’s visitors then become part of an email marketing list that is targeted regularly until they are converted into purchasing a product.
Do not overcomplicate this process. Write a 3-10 pages e-book relating to the niche you are selling, and upload it to your landing page or email platform. This written book become the lead magnet.

CREATIVE FABRICA

For Your lead magnet to be effective, it should: Be free (with sign-up)

  • Make a promise
  • Engage with key points
  • Add great value to your customer
  • Satisfy a need or solve a problem (at least give direction to solving the problem)
  • Appeal to your target audience
  • Provide needed information
  • Have a clear call to action.

The title and cover — the title and cover is what gives your lead magnet its magnetic force. Makes sense, right? Your big chance to showcase the value of your offer comes through;

(i)  How it is called and

(ii) How it’s presented.

Your “book” will indeed be judged by its cover. Don’t think that the rest of your lead magnet can be rubbish. No! You may be able to get away with growing your email list with a lead magnet that makes a big promise, but delivers little in substance. Do not forget, this flimsy strategy will backfire in the long run. You will not only succeed in convincing your lead magnet to push your prospects’ buttons in all the right ways.

The How to: Customers want guidance

So much of what takes place online is essentially a Q&A exercise. Everyone’s looking for answers, instructions, and guidance of some sort to a problem in they are wrestling with. The “how to” is the essential way to fulfil these requests.

CREATIVE FABRICA

How to lubricate your lead machine?

1/ Try making your headline a list

This works the best if your lead magnet contains a list of items, a checklist or a number of solutions to a problem. As we all know, nothing works best at engaging the audience than openly stating what your lead magnet contains. Straight information about your lead magnet’s content. Example

  • How to Decorate Your Home Office;
  • How to solve your company’s high labor turnover issues
  • Twelve Ideas that cost less than $50.

It focuses on a specific problem. There is no mystery about what solutions they’re going to offer. Notice how the specificity adds to the magnetism. There is a promise of actionable and trustworthy information, a reader will be able to start implementing in their business or life right away.

2/ The command

But you could also be super bold and make a powerful statement about your eBook or checklist. One way to do it is by using “the ultimate” formula.

For example:

  • The ULTIMATE guide to digital marketing
  • The ULTIMAT guide to Affiliate Marketing
  • The ULTIMATE guide to making money online

The word “ultimate” is precise and definitive. You could also put it this way;

  • Unrivaled guide
  • Complete guide
  • Really good guide
  • The last guide to _____ you’ll ever need
  • The definitive guide to Affiliate Marketing

3/ Simply tell your readers why they experience a particular problem

This is the “reason why” approach, titles is as simple as listing the main problem your eBook targets. For example:

  • “Why you are not making money on Twitter.”

However, you can also use this formula to write list-based titles, i.e.:

  • “5 Reasons why your calls to action don’t convert”
  • “10 most common reasons for low website conversions.”

4/ Compel customers with action

The command approach to writing a great lead-magnet-title is simple and effective.

These are in the form of a directive or command that starts with a verb examples like: Gas-Up, Optimize, Decorate, and build. Think through other options relevant to your audience.

You may be able to help a potential customer save, grow, expand, accelerate, win, dominate, start, end, control, train, learn. All verbs, all good.

Conclusion

Lead magnet is very important to the harvesting of emails, and emails are the foundation for any effective long term relationship with the customer.

All these and more are included in my e-book, the Ultimate Secrets for making money online and more. The book also guide readers on how to create landing pages, step-by-step guide on how to create and sell e-books, how to effectively make a living and move away from the 9-5 routine job and more.
