JVZoo is an affiliate marketplace that allows you to both earn money by promoting other vendor's products as an affiliate as well as sell your own products, softwares and services as a JVZoo seller.
In this post we're going to go over just how simple it is to earn money promoting other people's products as an affiliate on JVZoo.
The first step is to create a free JVZoo Affiliate account.
Next, you'll want to create a PayPal account so you can get paid.
Then, to learn about upcoming product launches you can visit a product launch calendar site like MunchEye.
From MunchEye you'll get an idea of what launches are coming up, so that you can plan ahead and have the best chance of success once the product goes live.
This is a process called launch jacking.
All you're doing with launch jacking is taking advantage of a temporary spike in traffic and trying to scoop up as many sales and commissions as possible during that window of time.
Since there are so many launches happening every...
When it comes to WordPress Themes there are an infinite sea of options to choose from.
So, one question I get a lot from people just starting out is "What's the best WordPress theme?"
Well, that's kind of subjective, however, I do like to try and at least give people some direction, rather than just sending them back on their way to try and figure it out on their own.
Because, I understand when you're starting out you want to do things "right" and if you're not certain you're doing them right it might hold you back from doing anything at all.
So, below are a handful of the top themes I like to use on my niche affiliate websites...
Thrive Themes - There are actually several themes as well as plugins in the Thrive Themes suite of products. So, if you can just pick one or you can subscribe to the Thrive Membership and get all their themes and products. If you're looking for a specific theme recommendation I like FocusBlog and Luxe.
GeneratePress - This is a very clean, simple, and...
Unfortunately SEO (search engine optimization) takes time.
It sucks, but that's just how it works.
Once organic traffic starts flowing to your website it's pretty passive and consistent moving forward, but getting to that point can sometimes be a slow process.
Especially with a brand new website.
So, if you're a seasoned affiliate marketer building niche websites regularly and want to increase the speed at which search engines find and start indexing your pages the way to do that is with a backlink indexing tool.
And while there are several different backlink indexer softwares out there...
In my experience from testing several of them, they just don't work.
Maybe they used to back in the day, but in my testing, they didn't index my sites AT ALL.
However, there is one backlink indexer tool that I can recommend...
It was created by successful internet marketers for online marketers...
And it's called Ghost Indexer.
What I love about Ghost Indexer is that it's cloud-based, so...
Everybody loves the idea of done-for-you.
Because even though most people may understand the process or strategy behind what it takes to get results or make money...
Nobody wants to put in the work.
The hurdle is actually finding a reliable (emphasis on the reliable) service or solution that can create quality done-for-you solutions on autopilot...
That can also be easily scaled.
Luckily, in regards to done-for-you niche affiliate sites, there is a solution that I can recommend.
It's called HumanProofDesigns.
What I love about HPD is they not only offer custom made niche sites, but additionally they also offer content, keyword research and linkbuilding services, as well as training to help you succeed with the services they provide.
So, it's essentially a "one stop shop" which is awesome...
Because you don't have to get your sites from one source, your articles from another source, then your links from another source and piece them all together yourself.
With HPD all of those...
Although I'm considered an expert at online marketing and SEO (search engine optimization) I'm certainly no super nerd when it comes to things like caching and page speed.
However, I do know that page load speed is extremely important and significantly affects SEO and how Google ranks your site.
Luckily there is a simple solution for all of us non-nerds that requires minimal configuration and produces immediate results.
It's called WP Rocket.
WP Rocket makes your WordPress site load extremely fast in just a few clicks.
I'm not going to go into depth about why it's so wonderful - you can read all about that on their website.
For most of you reading this, all you really need to know is that it's important for your website to load fast.
And WP Rocket is the most powerful WordPress caching plugin to help you do that.
** And in regards to which plan to invest in...don't be a cheapee - if you're a serious online marketer you've probably got...
One of the skills you need to develop to become a successful online marketer is being able to think outside the box.
The reason for this is it's going to give you a significant edge over the rest of your competition and allow you to be profitable in certain endeavors where most other marketers are struggling and failing.
And one of the ways to do this is to add several layers or design funnels for every asset you create.
Basically once you start to see a little bit of traction, whether it be with free or paid traffic, you want to optimize that traffic for maximum conversions and squeeze every dollar of profit you can out of those clicks and visitors.
And one simple solution for doing this with organic traffic is to install a back button redirect script on your website.
It should come as no surprise to you that most people who find your website often click the back button of their web browser.
So, instead of just letting that valuable visitor disappear forever, with a back button...
One very important rule for working hard...
Is that you've also gotta make the time to relax and reward yourself.
Everybody burns out eventually...you're no exception.
And one of the best ways to restore your energy is to expose yourself to new experiences and travel.
But don't worry...you don't have to spend a fortune in order to have an amazing time.
Groupon Getaways are a great way to disconnect from your busy work schedule and experience new destinations for far less that you would normally pay by going through a traditional travel website.
Groupon has tons of travel deals to destinations all over the world and they're updated on a regular basis, so there's always somewhere new to check out.
So, next time you're feeling the urge to get away...
Check out Groupon Getaways and reserve an awesome deal for your next adventure.
To give you some insight into how I go about selecting products and services to promote, I try and look at the bigger picture.
Since SEO is something that takes time I want to ensure the products and services I choose to promote are going to be either evergreen or recurring in commissions...or both.
Now, you've probably heard the story of the California gold rush and how some of the first people to strike it rich were actually the ones selling picks and shovels and other equipment needed for gold mining.
So, that's the exact same approach I like to take when it comes to promoting anything online.
First sell people on the dream.
Then point them to the best tools and resources they need in order to achieve that desired outcome.
So, in regards to search engine optimization and the tools and resources required for success, here are a few of my top recommendations to suggest to people interested in learning more about SEO...
Domain Name - People wanting to start their own...
Most all marketing involves the same elements.
The two most important to master are traffic and conversion.
So, even though there are several different traffic sources that exist, the core strategy and you need to take to move people from a lead to a customer is very similar...but the tools sometimes change.
In regards to Instagram, Instagram is the traffic source.
So, as a marketer, you need to figure out your leverage points and how to move the traffic from Instagram to your own funnels, offers and email lists.
With Instagram, the leverage point is the one URL you can put in the bio of your profile.
Now, obviously you'll need some sort of offer.
This can either be an affiliate offer or your own.
Then, once you have your offer selected, you'll need to figure out a way to capture leads and convert those leads into customers.
For this I recommend a tool like ClickFunnels.
ClickFunnels is a drag-and-drop sales funnel software that you can use to build custom mobile responsive ...
When it comes to SEO (search engine optimization) content is king.
And this doesn't change whether you're doing SEO for a client or for yourself as an affiliate marketer.
The content is the most important element...
Because without really high-quality, relevant content, the search engines don't have a lot of information to go on to actually find and rank your website.
Now, there are two elements to getting websites to the top of page 1 in the search results...
So, the other piece of the puzzle is backlinks.
But, I want to stress the fact that throwing a lot of backlinks at your website, even if they're really powerful backlinks, isn't the greatest strategy if your content is complete garbage.
It might work in the short term, but don't be surprised if your sites rankings drop significantly over time.
So, the long way of doing SEO is to actually create the content yourself or outsource articles.
And be disciplined and consistent enough to do that over and over again until you...
