This is good news for us affiliate marketers 🙂

Businesses work with other websites or affiliates. Basically, what they do is have others place ads for their business in exchange for a percentage of the profit they make (when a person makes a sale through your ad).

And the more websites or affiliates they have, the more exposure their business will get which is something they should always aim for.

Better yet, affiliate marketing can leave the door open for their business to begin generating passive or residual income.

Affiliate marketing is a popular choice for marketers and content creators alike, and part of the reason for its success is that it can establish a middle ground that suits both parties. Members of the affiliate program receive a little extra revenue and the company behind it benefits from the additional exposure.

The affiliate marketing industry is expected to grow to $6.8 billion over the next five years...

A profitable niche, what is yours?

Hello,

First of all; what is a niche (or niche market)?

niche

A business that focuses on a niche is addressing a need for a product or service that is not being addressed by mainstream providers. You can think of a niche market as a narrowly defined group of potential customers that have specific needs.

Instead of offering sports clothing, for example, a business might establish a niche market by specializing in sports shoes.

Before you even begin building your first site, you’ll need to decide which niche you’re going to target.

Obviously, if you don't know what your site is about or who you're going to target with it, you can't really build a site around it...can you?

If you’ve already figured this one out, way to go! This is undoubtedly one of the most difficult and overwhelming steps.

If you don't quite know what your niche is yet, here are some key questions to ask yourself when determining your niche :

What topics am I already passionate about?

It's much easier to work on something if you're passionate about it. Plus, when you have a passion, you're usually quite knowledgeable about it too, so that definitely helps.

Is there money in this niche?

While following your passion is definitely the recommended option, sometimes the possibility of making money in a profitable niche trumps passion.

What topic could I see myself easily writing 25, 50, or 100 blog posts about?

The topic you choose must have enough depth that you can create a lot of content for it. This is important for building an authoritative site, for search engine optimization, and most importantly, for the end user.

Is there enough interest in/demand for products?

The niche you choose might draw enough interest from your audience when it comes to reading and acquiring knowledge, but are they willing to buy relevant products too? Without consumer interest in products, your niche isn't going to make you much money.

Are there affiliate programs available?
This is obviously a crucial factor to consider. You might come up with an idea for a niche you know a lot about, but are there affiliate programs for the niche? No affiliate program = no sales.

Kindest,

Can You Really Make Money with Affiliate Marketing?

Can you make money with affiliate marketing? The short answer is yes, affiliate programs can earn a extra money and even a full-time income from home. The long answer is a little more complicated. Like any home income venture, success comes not so much from what you choose to do to make money, but whether or not you do what needs to be done correctly and consistently.

Affiliate marketing is an ideal home business because it doesn't require much money to get started, and you don't have produce, stock or ship product inventory, or deliver a service.

You're essentially paid for referring new clients and customers to other businesses.

The problem with affiliate marketing, like many other home business options, are the so-called gurus and get-rich-quick programs that suggest affiliate marketing can be done fast and with little effort. Odds are you've read claims of affiliate marketing programs that say you can make hundreds of thousands of dollars a month doing almost nothing. Or, they suggest you can set up your affiliate site, and then forget it, except to check your bank deposits.

The reality in affiliate marketing is much the same reality in other work-at-home ventures; there are a few who are filthy rich, a good number who are successful enough to meet their goals, and a ton who aren't making anything. So, the question isn't really whether or not affiliate marketing is a viable income option (it is), but whether or not you can make affiliate marketing work for you.

Only you can decide that.

But to help, we offer you a step by step plan to be a successful affiliate marketer at Circles of Online Marketers.

Affiliate Marketing Still Alive!

Affiliate marketing, without a doubt, still alive and big.

Affiliate marketing is a huge part of online marketing. In fact, around 15% of all digital marketing revenue comes from affiliate marketing.

The industry is expected to grow in the next four years, and the growth is not only in terms of revenue, but networks as well. More networks mean people have more options to pick from. This competition results in improved performance, and better results.

In addition to this, affiliate networks are also coming up with better techniques and payments methods. This keeps affiliate marketers on their toes as they know something bigger and better is just round the corner.

With more and more people using the internet today, you have the whole world as your target audience. If you exhaust one portion of the audience, you can move to the next. The potential just never decreases.

This is due to several reasons, including people’s growing faith in e-commerce. Now users are not afraid of sharing their personal details on the web. There was a time when buyers preferred to go to a physical store due to insecurities, but now with better security measures in place, buyers are willing to shop online.

This is a growing concern with data breaches being common, but affiliate industry as a whole has been pretty safe so far.

Moreover, he also agrees that the ability to reach to a growing number of audience is one of the major reasons why there is no decrease in the popularity of affiliate marketing.

Almost everything can be sold under affiliate marketing. There was a time when only specific items, such as electronics, were sold under affiliate marketing campaigns, however now everything from software to eBooks are sold and purchased under affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is an easy and tested way to give a boost to sales, which is why more companies are trying this concept.

Major Changes to How Google Spends Your Budget

Outside of overhauling the UI, not much had changed in AdWords this year…until 4th of october.

Google made a hush-hush announcement (there’s still nothing on the Inside AdWords blog) in which they revealed a major shift in how they choose to allocate your daily ad spend. Per Google:

“Starting October 4, 2017, campaigns will be able to spend up to twice the average daily budget to help you reach your advertising goals.”

Now, before you pull your credit card from the Billing and Payments tab, this does not mean that Google is going to double your daily budget indefinitely. They’re not trying to bleed you dry. Think of it less like robbery and more like “big data knows best.”

What changed with your AdWords budget?

Effective October 4, Google can double the amount of money you’ve said you want to spend per day on a given campaign. So, if a campaign in your account has a budget of $150, Google can decide to spend up to $300. Note that this change affects all budgets, whether they are unique to a campaign or if they are shared.

They’ve always had the ability to exceed your daily budget in the righteous pursuit of clicks and conversions: they just capped it at 20% instead of, you know, 100%.

This process is called overdelivery, and it makes a lot of sense. Some days, 1,000 people might search for “novelty koozies,” and other days that number could drop to 200. Google, benevolent as they are, wants to make sure your ads are served to as many prospective customers as possible (they also don’t want to leave unspent money on the table).

Basically, on days where traffic is high, you could see your costs swell up to 100%. Don’t panic. This will be counteracted on slower days, when ad spend is below your desired daily budget. While this doesn’t mean you’re going to spend more than your“monthly charging limit” (the average number of days in a month—30.4—multiplied by your average daily budget) it sure as hell means you’re going to hit that number.

What do these changes mean for you?

Well, for one, you’re probably never going to come in under your monthly advertising budget again.

This change will maximize your monthly ad spend, putting your ads in front of more eyeballs. This represents opportunity for you. But for Google, this is more than opportunity: it’s a chance to increase ad revenue. If every advertiser comes, like, half a percentage point closer to hitting their monthly budget, that adds up.

If you’re using some form of daily tracking to gauge how you’re pacing towards monthly targets (particularly common for agencies), you’re going to see some sporadic numbers during a given month. If your ads are overserved a few days in a row, you may receive a concerned phone call from your boss or client. Just tell them it’ll all come out in the wash: daily fluctuations will go in both directions, and spend will normalize by month’s end. While you may spend a few more dollars over the course of a month, that was money that had already been earmarked for AdWords. You’re seeing more clicks and, if your account’s in great shape, this means a parallel uptick in new business should soon follow. While it’s certainly a big change, it shouldn’t be cause for alarm.

3 Things You Should Never Do When Writing Email Subject Lines

Using "Re:"

This is another trick that’s come into vogue lately. The thinking seems to be that writing "Re:" in the subject line of a first-touch email will fool buyers into thinking they have corresponded before. Even when this tactic worked, the subsequent realization that this was a first-touch sales email creates bad feelings between buyers and salespeople. And by now, this technique is so ubiquitous that buyers see through it immediately.

Using "Free"

Nothing makes your message look like an email blast than "marketing speak" like "free," "consultation," "promotion," and so on. Try to use simple, straightforward language (like you're talking to a coworker) to avoid an instant delete.

Using "Urgent"

Is it actually urgent? Unless the buyer's house is on fire, and you sell water, steer clear of this term. Not only will you provoke your recipient's ire when they realize you're asking for a phone call to "discuss their business goals," you'll also lose the ability to use this phrase when you actually mean it (it's 6:40 p.m. on a Friday, the big discount you're offering expires that night, their corporate credit card isn't going through, and you need to catch them before they sign off for the weekend.

To Conclusion

Keeping your subject lines free of these words will have a noticeable impact on your open and response rates. Yes, it's hard to craft a great subject line -- but it's worth it.

Kindest,

Merchants Love Affiliate Marketing

Merchants have so many costs when marketing their business, their stores, their products. Often, they blindly spend their advertising and marketing dollars without knowing exactly what benefits these costs bring them.
In other marketing channels, ROI is hard to measure. Unless Merchants tie a sophisticated tracking system to their marketing efforts, they cannot identify the exact source of a sale.

However, in Affiliate Marketing – the Merchant only pays after the sale is made.

That’s the key: They pay after the sale is made.

Merchants only pay commissions on bona fide, completed sales.
That’s total performance marketing.
Completely measurable. Completely accountable. Completely success driven.
