Attracting Affiliates Through Targeted Website Traffic

Owning an impressive website will give you an almost endless list of opportunities to succeed in the digital world. Especially if you have targeted website traffic, you may find that you can actually do more than just marketing and selling your own business to secure a steady flow of profit.

This post may contain affiliate links, meaning if you click on a link and make a purchase, I will get a small commission at no cost to you. A portion of my commissions are put back into my business to create a better experience for my visitors.

Expect affiliates to be going after you and prepare to handle several connections as marketers will do their best to showcase their own business via your pages (just be careful to affiliate with a direct competitor).

So why are you likely to capture affiliates’ attention if the traffic to your website is targeted?

First, obviously your targeted traffic is something that may also be targeted to their industry or specialization. If, for example, your website offers high-speed internet connection, then your traffic may certainly prove useful to an affiliate that sells anti-spyware. Anybody who uses the internet is susceptible to invasion of personal privacy due to programs that can be unknowingly installed on your computer.

Hence, anybody who needs an internet connection may certainly consider the purchase of anti-spyware too. This is where your targeted site traffic becomes a great catch for other related businesses (especially for your competitors – which is why you need to constantly make sure that your website possesses ideal search engine authority to get all possible targeted traffic).

When your site features content highly relevant to a specific subject, then you become an authority in the topic. This authority transcends to almost anything that displays on your website which is likely to be clicked by your targeted visitors. Consider a mall that is frequented by people due to its popularity in a specific location. When a franchise business rents a space within the mall, the franchise business is sure to benefit from the popularity of the latter.

This is exactly similar to an affiliate renting or buying a space from any of your web pages. Of course, the franchise business would have never rented a space within the mall if not for its outstanding daily visits. As for your website, without the targeted traffic which is most likely due to a poor content, you can never be an authority and hence you will never catch any affiliate’s attention.

A website that receives targeted traffic may also grab the opportunity to officially collect information about its visitors. You may give your visitors the option to subscribe to your site by getting their email addresses (or even post addresses and phone numbers) so you can send them notifications whenever developments in your site take place.

These information – aside from being highly significant to your own business – will also be very useful to affiliates. The list can be used for lead generation, soft selling, and other related marketing activities. Be careful however with certain limitations in contacting potential leads.

And by simply being connected to a website with large targeted traffic already brings benefits to affiliates in terms of increasing the quality of their own sites. Back links are important factors in getting a website optimized. Having them come from reputable websites is a major step to attracting search engine crawlers.

The targeted website traffic that you have is what will make your website reputable.

Is Internet Marketing Working For You?

This post contains affiliate links, meaning if you click on a link and make a purchase, I will get a small commission at no cost to you. A portion of my commissions are put back into my business to create a better experience for my visitors.

Determining whether or not your Internet marketing campaign is working for you is a very important part of the advertising process. This is so important because while there is a great deal of Internet marketing which can be done without a great deal of expense, other types of Internet marketing do have financial costs associated with them. Also, in both cases there is a time and energy burden to orchestrating the Internet marketing. For all of these reasons it is important for business owners to continuously evaluate their marketing techniques and strategies to determine what is working and what is not. This will help the business owner to focus his efforts on marketing strategies which are providing positive results as opposed to those which are either not providing results or are only providing lackluster results. This article will examine a few different marketing strategies as well as how business owners can evaluate the effectiveness of these strategies.

Affiliate marketing is certainly one of the most cost effective Internet marketing strategies available. This marketing strategy involves having other website owners known as affiliates post an advertisement on their websites to direct Internet traffic to your website. This marketing strategy is cost effective because in most cases the affiliate is only paid when he produces a desired result such as enticing an Internet user to click through the advertisement or to purchase a product or service once they click through the ad. While the business owner is only paying for the advertisement when it produces a desired effect, it is still worthwhile to evaluate the effectiveness of these ads to determine whether or not they are working well.

Fortunately affiliate marketing ads have a natural feedback mechanism which makes it easy to evaluate how well the ad is working. This feedback is provided in the form of code imbedded in the advertisement which specifies which affiliate generated the website visitors. This information is provided for the purposes of issuing payment to the affiliate but it can also provide the business owner with useful information on which affiliate ads are the most effective. This information is especially useful when the affiliates are posting different ads. The business owner may conclude the ads posted by the more successful affiliates are more appealing to potential customers and may opt to use this style of ad for all of their affiliates.

Business owners who use Internet marketing strategies such as posting on message boards to promote their business might want to consider asking customers to complete a short survey when making a purchase. This survey can include useful demographic information which is always helpful for marketing as well as information regarding where the customer learned of the products or services you offer. Including the message board web address as one of the responses will give you a good indication of whether or not the message boards are helping to drive customers to your website. You may also have some unofficial feedback in terms of the response to your postings on the message board. If the general consensus is in support of your posts, you may infer you are generating some interest in your business or website through this tactic.

Finally, an Internet marketing strategy can be evaluated by studying website traffic results as well as sales receipts. Anytime you implement a new Internet marketing strategy or technique it is worthwhile to study your website traffic reports and sales receipts carefully to determine whether or not there is a spike in either traffic or sales immediately after the marketing effort. For example, if you send out an e-newsletter to those who have requested additional information about your products or services, you may notice there is an increase in traffic or sales soon afterwards. This is a good indication the e-newsletter was well received and effective. However, if there is not a marked increase in traffic or sales subsequent to the e-newsletter it indicates the marketing effort was not effective.
