Promote affiliate eCommerce business on a shoestring budget or FREE!
Promoting affiliate eCommerce websites or product links is a massively daunting task when you compare it against the return on your invested efforts.
The simple logic is that affiliates receive only a margin of profit from the actual seller that they give away to promote their product sales. It is never as lucrative as selling the product itself.
But affiliate marketing also have its upside; you do not have to invest in the products, services or catering to the logistics and customer handling. You refer, and you earn commissions.
So, what is the most important thing when running an affiliate eCommerce business promotion on a shoestring budget or FREE!
I have been running an eCommerce marketing agency for 17 years, and in my experience, there is nothing like free marketing! Everyone has to pay the price - the price can be your time, money, labour, expertise, hiring an agency, or self-promoting.
Here are some ideas & simple strategies to make it big in affiliate sales:
Less means More attention - Start with the niche and select the correct category of products to promote. It is vital; many failures have arisen because affiliates start listing everything under the sun that they can get their hands or instead links from and put them out in the hope that people will find them and click on them and then buy them. Let me save you countless hours and break it to you. If people want to find something, they will go to Amazon - a wonderland to find almost everything, and chances are they know Amazon much before they come to know about your brand or website. So, if you select a specific product or range of products, it helps people find value in them.
Curate your listings: Once you have the niche selected, curate it; you have an excellent offering telling people to choose from without wasting much time. For example, you choose to display the sexiest pair of shoes for Men & Women. They are tough to find on Amazon's unending shoe list, so you put up the top 20 designer shoe list, and people start getting interested. Do this for any category, or set of products.
Start building content around those themes that you have selected. It becomes easy to guide the content writer and more accessible for the audience to find your helpful information.
Build that story and spread your message but do not forget to stick to your niche. Dont wander off. Many giant publications have been in business for decades because they follow the same formula. For example, an interior magazine will curate a list of best designs in homes; they do not worry about and list the sexiest shoes or dresses. Similarly, whatever you pick - stick with it, you can start beating the competition with consistent efforts and proper strategy.
Use social media channels to share your story, build a character with your content, Humour, Serious, or whatever you think your audience will like. Build something different, something aligned with your audience, and you will find people checking you out.
One most significant advantage you will see when you start getting moderately successful, the companies will start reaching out to you, as you are highlighting something that they want people to see and stand out, and that my friend is the start of building momentum, which will lead to more traffic, clicks and buys.
I run an eCommerce Development & marketing agency, and people in my industry use much jargon around and technical steps; my idea is to keep it simple, logical.
