Today, I’m going to be showing you a strategy that will help you pull in more of that almighty green while avoiding a costly mistake…
This whole Internet Marketing gig started by desperation.
In case you don’t know my story – I began by selling Real Estate properties online and once I saw I could sell houses in Florence, Alabama with a grand population just over 40,000 people to folks in Jersey and California –
I knew I was on to something.
However, my action wasn’t super focused.
I began several projects in an effort to just throw crap at the wall to see what sticks.
One of those things was writing about my Real Estate experiences and eventually I’d start conducting reviews about upcoming products that were launching.
And that’s where I saw everything start to take off.
It all boiled down to my targeting of very specific products and keywords.
Now, here’s why this still works…
People are searching because they’re needing that extra nudge.
They’re looking for more info.
Or maybe they want to see the product with a demo or they search for a bonus or the best deal they can get.
In other words, the person sending the emails hasn’t closed the deal.
If you look at most of the emails you’re getting these days, I’d bet that most are slamming you with something like this…
“Buy this now or the world will explode in … (insert countdown timer here -lol)
Which we know is total hype.
But that's mostly all that you see.
So my business really took off when I began focusing on these launches and as a result I scooped up all the traffic from the search engines of people wanting to know more about the product launching.
And it worked like gangbusters.
Using this affiliate marketing strategy, the traffic is super targeted.
Now, before I began focusing on these targeted launch keywords, it wasn't all sunshine and roses..
I'd bombed on multiple sites.
And hadn't made a dime.
Looking back I see that – my targeting was way off.
The fact is when you get your targeting right, you don't need a ton of traffic.
You're getting in front of the right people at the right time.
And as a result – it's like shooting fish in a barrel.
You don't need magic powers to get the offers to convert into sales and you don't need an enormous amount of traffic.
So, when you're targeting your SEO campaigns be sure you're going after the right keywords and not targeting to broad of a niche.
I'll give you an example…
Instead of trying to rank for the term ‘SEO'
Go after a SEO software keyword, something like ‘Senuke review' (just using this as an example)
Any who, I started showing up on countless leader boards and no one knew who I was.
And I was seeing big pops.
Numerous 5 figure promos – 10K,12K, 20K type commissions plus many even had recurring.
As a matter of fact, I still get recurring checks from these launches.
Next, I began getting traffic from more competitive niches and ranking for big money keywords.
This all dug my family out from a big hole that I'd created from the failed real estate deals.
And I’d like to tell you that we went off riding in the sunset, but that’s not what happened.
The bottom fell out from a huge mistake I made.
And I was left trying to pick up the pieces of what had just happened.
It left me in shambles, hurt and even afraid to make a move.
This mistake was devastating and it's something that I want you to avoid.
I’ll tell you all about it in my next email coming tomorrow morning.
Be sure you're on the list below 🙂
