When I first started in affiliate marketing I simply dumped a ton of cash on Pay-per-click engines and did pretty well. Well its not so easy anymore.
Especially now with pretty much every easy engine using a quality score component of some sort. We have talked a lot about ad copy and keywords and I feel that has been beaten pretty good so this is more about the basic techniques of the landing page.
The key is to build sites that people can interact with and are a service of some sort to the user. There are a couple basic sites you can build like this:
In my experience review websites when designed properly are the best way to drive leads. “Designed properly” is the secret sauce. I dunno about you but designing great looking templates sucks for me. The WordPress Reviews Plugin is a gift from god and makes deployment of these sites really fast. If you can install WordPress then you can make a great looking review website in minutes. There are also a bunch of themes ready to go. You can have dating, weight loss, ringtone services, whatever reviews up and running in no time and start raking in the affiliate money with these. We use them on a local level and just charge flat rate advertising. I would show you but after the abuse the coddington dental website took (ahh the downside of showing real life examples) I think I will just let your imagination run wild with this one.
Anyway on average our prices have decreased dramatically with these review sites. If you are in a niche that you think building review sites is for you then you need to give the WordPress Review plugin a whirl.
