Affiliate marketing doesn’t work as well as it used to, but it still does work.

Now, it doesn’t mean you can’t make more money. It was just easier back then, but there’s a new way to make money that most affiliates take for granted.

It’s through SEO, and if you optimize your site and rank really well organically, you can dominate, and you can keep getting more and more revenue coming in.

Step 1, I want you to go to all the affiliate networks within the verticals you’re thinking of.

Here’s what I mean, verticals that you’re thinking of, if you’re being a marketer to just make money, you’re going to find a hard time making money.

If you’re doing something you’re passionate about, you’re going to be much better off because you’ll put in the time and effort that’s needed to succeed.

So go and think about what you love, and go to any of those affiliate sites, like a ClickBank.com, and you can see what are the most popular products, what are their payouts in my space?

This will give you ideas of what people are selling to make money.

If you’re unsure and You land on these sites, you can also call their support people, and they’ll even walk you through and give you advice on what products or Services you should promote.

The next thing I want you to do is just do some Google searches related To those products or services.

You’ll see all the other people who are ranking for those terms. Now, I want you to create a list of all those URLs.

The next thing I want you to do is head on over to Ubersuggest and put in each of those URLs.

The next thing I want you to do is click on over to Top Pages. This page will show you their most popular pieces of content, even their most popular pages, the ones that are ranking on Google, the ones that are getting the most traffic.

It’ll show you social shares, and it’ll show you estimated traffic and the number of backlinks.

Click the View All button under estimated traffic.

This will show you all the keywords that that page is getting traffic for, show you how many visitors from each keyword, the ranking positions, and how competitive it is for that keyword to rank organically.

They keywords you want to rank for and look for are the ones that have high traffic, the ones that are expensive in cost-per-click, and have an easy or a low search difficulty number.

The easier it is, the quicker you’re going to get ranking, and when a keyword is expensive, higher-cost-per-click, that means it tends to convert more from a visitor into a customer.

The next thing you want to do is look to all the people that have linked to that article.

This will give you data on how many backlinks these articles are getting.

The next step in the process is to do this with the rest of the competitors.

You’ll figure out what types of pieces of content you should create to get the most traffic because not all sites create the same content.

Even though they’re competing, they all have different spins and variations on it.

The last thing you need to do is go out there and create the content and promote it. You already have ideas on the way your competition is doing.

You already know what’s driving them traffic. It’s time for you to one-up them and create better versions of their content.

They have a 2,000-word post. Go make yours four or 5,000 words. Put video in there, put pictures, just one-up and make them so much better, everyone’s like, “I don’t need a check out any other site. Neil’s done such an amazing job, or John’s done such an amazing job, or Jill’s done such a great job.”

You need to go above and beyond so people care about what you have to say.

When you create this content, you also need to promote it. The way you promote it is you email all the other people who linked to your competition and be like, “Hey John, I noticed you linked out to XY and Z article. I have a similar one that just came out but mine covered 1, 2, and 3 that theirs didn’t. Cheers, Neil.”
