Andrew Hansen has just released his free Forever Affiliate Strategy guide document which you can get if you click here.
If you want a sneak peek into what Andrew covers in his new course, this is something that you’re going to want to read as it dispels a lot of myths about seo and affiliate marketing, and he explains what’s still working in the current climate (… as you may know, 2012 was a pretty rough year for MANY affiliate marketers with Google rolling out some seriously tough updates – some of these updates literally wiped entire affiliate marketers businesses out)
When you visit that link above you’ll also see a video with Andrew showing how some of his simple little sites are bringing in some really nice income – there was one forever affiliate style site that was generating over 10,000 visitors per month pretty much on autopilot, and was pocketing over $1,000 in commissions from that one site alone.
(Imagine being able to build sites like this that make $500-$1000 per month … how many would you build?)
One of the first things mentioned in the free download is that now affiliates have to focus on providing value to the crowds of visitors they get to their sites.
While previously it was easy to game the system, now more and more people are not only realizing that there are ‘fake’ review sites out there, but so is Google.
So the successful affiliates in todays climate are focusing on providing legitimately useful information and also acting like an impartial 3rd party.
I know, I know … kinda sounds like work right? Well, it is – just like any business, but that’s also one of the reasons that affiliate marketing in 2013 is perhaps easier than at any time in the past…
Why is it easier?
The simple answer is that because it’s no longer possible (or, at least not as easily) to game the system, a lot of casual affiliates have thrown in the towel and gone onto other things.
This means the amount of competition you’re going to be up against is a LOT less than for someone starting in the same business in early 2012.
(In this section, on page #4 of the report, Andrew also shares a REALLY cool tip that will help in massively increasing your conversions in your affiliate promotions. If you don’t take note of anything else, make sure to read/use that tip)
In the next section of the report Andrew covers some methods to make sure that you’re picking the most profitable markets to get into online.
After all, there’s no point building sites in markets where people don’t want to spend money, right?
This part is one of the cores of the entire system, and the same one he’s used for the past 8+ years, so it’s pretty nicely refined
(He even shares an example of how to find new/emerging markets – e.g. with little/no competition – that has 100,000 searches a month. Admittedly, these markets are not as common, but by knowing what to look for, you can benefit when they do come along)
Anyway, that’s just the first few pages of the report, and there’s a LOT more great content contained in the other pages. Much of which goes into what you need to be doing to build profitable sites and get them ranking in the current seo world. It’s difficult for me to distill all of this information without turning this into a mammoth 5,000 word post, so if you haven’t done yet, I’d suggest clicking on the link below and getting a copy of the free forever affiliate strategy guide for yourself.
