When a website goes live, SEO and PPC are great methods that affiliates can apply to attract online visitors. However, publicizing your affiliate website should be done both online and offline for maximized exposure.
Affiliates can apply creative methods for garnering as much publicity as possible, and here are three ideas to reach this goal.
Idea 1: Submit your site to online channels
It is incredibly important that your affiliate website gain the exposure it needs when it goes live. There is a reason why affiliates create things such as site maps and apply keywords to their content: it is because they plan to submit their site to Google for the purpose of getting indexed, as well as having greater visibility in search engine rankings.
You’ll want to know all kinds of other things: what their competitors are doing so you can make it stand out from theirs, what the general expectation of the industry is like (no good having a super-friendly, chatty site when potential customers are looking for super-professional), and what’s going to hook in their potential clients.
Copywriting is similar. I can’t count the number of times someone’s said to me that they want a website/brochure and then made me guess what they want by reading my draft and saying something like, “it’s not bad but it still needs more zing.”
All that achieves is that I don’t feel like I’m doing a good job by them, they don’t get what they want (usually because they don’t know what they want “but I’ll know when I see it”), and if they’ve chosen an hourly rate, it costs them more.
I can only assume at this point that you’re an avid user of Skype for your home business, if not you need to get yourself on there asap! You can check out more about Skype here!
Some of these have been an absolute god send, so I know that you will also find them very helpful. I should note at this point that Skype for PC and MAC are very different from each other, I have put these together on a PC so I can’t say for sure that ALL these tips are going to work exactly the same as they will on a MAC, but they shouldn’t be too different…. fingers crossed.
Just a side note – did you know that Skype doesn’t have a limit on the size of the file you send…. yep it’s true and so very helpful!! What else will you find out inside….
