Businesswoman Writing on White Board

OK, forget everything you know about affiliate marketing. The simple truth is that the old rules no longer apply. If you play by the old rules, you will lose this game.

The big lie

Unfortunately, you’ve been led to believe affiliate marketing is easy. Well, that’s true . . . to a point It’s far easier that developing, selling and supporting your own product. But starting your own business is really hard, so it’s all relative.

The cold hard truth

The worst part is that the information you’ve received is all wrong. You’re told to pick one of more products to promote. Next to pick your keywords carefully. Then to use these keywords to buy ads promoting the product. And finally get a fat check for all the sales. But this just won’t work!

Don’t bother with keywords

There was a time when this worked. But the competition has shot the price of keywords through the roof. Adapt and change…

The NEW game

There’s still hope. Here’s a new method that works!

  • Do CPA marketing instead of product promotion
  • Utilize demographics data
  • Do image ad marketing

Start using CPA marketing

CPA means Cost Per Action. It’s far superior to product promotion. Because your visitor doesn’t have to buy anything. You get paid when they take an “action”. Like completing a survey. And it’s much easier to get them to do that.

Utilize demographics data

You’re not even going to use keywords (explained below.) But demographics are highly important. Once you’ve picked the CPA offer to promote. Then hop over to Quantcast.com. And discover the exact demographics of your ideal prospect.

Use image ads

Now you have your offer and your demographics. You can target these exact demographics on display networks. And let images do the work. And there was no keyword research required. The biggest advantage is price. Image ad clicks are much cheaper.

Summing it up

This is powerful method to make money online. Because getting started in CPA is free. Image ads are cheap. You can use demographics to target your ideal prospect. And your commission is much easier to earn.
