where are you ranking?
The Christmas months are when affiliates start earning big cash. It is not uncommon for top marketers to earn more than $10,000 from the Christmas market alone. In this article, you will learn how to get into the Christmas affiliate marketing action before anybody else.
There is no exact statistic on how many people will be spending this Christmas year, but you will find that huge money can be made as long as you are getting your affiliate sites ranking on Google right now.
If you get your sites ranking high on Google for competitive keywords starting today, your sites will rank by late October or November. Sales start rocketing up high within the November weeks, and then it will get even higher within the last few weeks leading up to December.
Many affiliate marketers don’t find that Christmas affiliate marketing isn’t all that profitable because of how people can still buy items from the offline stores. This may be very true, but there are still many people who would like to skip the difficulties of offline shopping and buy online. Don’t forget that many stores run out of stock occasionally for the top products, so going online is where many people will go since online stores like Amazon barely ever run out of stock.
The main problem that most affiliates have to deal with is actually knowing what to promote on their sites and where to find products. The most respected place to go is definitely Amazon. Not only do you earn decent commission rates, but they have all the products that you can ever sell. Ordinary people are also aware on how reputable and reliable Amazon is when buying stuff online.
To see what the best products that are selling, you can try going to the eBay Pulse. There are many categories there that explain which products are currently selling on eBay. You can see that there are many categories to choose from, so it won’t be too difficult to find a product to sell as an affiliate. Don’t forget to start looking into the Amazon’s bestsellers list.
Aside from simply promoting the items found on eBay Pulse and on the Amazon’s bestsellers list, just come up with your own ideas on what would make great gifts but still won’t have too much competition for Christmas. Toys are obviously the most in-demand because of the need to give children gifts. Let’s face it, Christmas is when the adults buy the young children different toys, so the toys market is a great niche to sell products in.
Google Trends is a great resource for finding that perfect niche to sell affiliate products if you just can’t find something to sell.
The main trick here is to promote a product that you personally believe would be given as a gift. Your goal on your sites is to showcase how the item you are selling would make a great gift. This is a very smart idea since everybody will be buying for others and not really for themselves.
After the process is over for choosing the right product to sell, it is time to start getting a website ranking high. It is recommended to create a site that is specifically trying to sell that single product with the products name in the domain name. Many marketers like to buy a brand new domain name and place the following words in the URL “Product Name + Review(s)”. This is a great way to get it ranked for a wonderful buyer specific keyword. When they type in review and your site is there, it is obvious they are interested to find out what people online are saying about the product.
It is good to outline that Amazon allows you to earn all the commissions made from a single person who clicks on your link, but there is a catch, you only get the commissions from their first 24 hours on the site. If you find a buyer who buys everything all at once, then you have just stumbled upon a goldmine.
There is huge money that can be made online. It is all about knowing what to do and actually following a simple system. Above is a short but concise blueprint to getting your Christmas affiliate marketing camapign successfully running.
