Leads and Web Traffic Generation
Similar to building a huge numbers of Youtube followers, Twitter followers and Instagram followers… affiliate marketers also build a huge number of followers which are more commonly referred to as “leads”.
Leads are simply people who have shown interest in either learning more about your business offer or joining your business.
You can capture a lead whenever a ‘visitor’ is viewing your website offer by using what is called a “lead capure page“.
You don’t want visitors to just visit your website offer, you want them to submit their contact information (usually their name and email) so that you can promote various affiliate offers to them over and over again.
Capturing leads is the most profitable science in internet marketing and is literally where the big bucks roll in. Once you begin the lead generating process, your business will start to prosper.
And as you discover how to generate leads, you will likely be able to teach your referrals how to do the same thing.
This duplication is necessary for the overall growth of your affiliate marketing business because proving success in any part of the process will ensure that your referrals will continue their recurring monthly subscriptions through your offer(s).
There is actually a part in the process that is much more important which must be done before you can generate leads. You need to get “traffic” to your lead capture pages before you can ever begin generating leads.
Lead and traffic generation (affiliate marketing audience), is the single most important factor for the success of any online business. No Leads and Traffic means No Business.
You could have the best website, best product, or best sales offer on the entire planet… but if no one knows about it, sales are not going to happen.
The first rule to learn as an affiliate marketer is that getting leads and traffic to your website offer is the most crucial part.
Say that you want to be able to generate 25 plus leads per day, then theoretically you would need 250 to 500 visitors to your lead capture pages every single day.
Most affiliate marketers say that lead generation is the hard part of the equation, and they couldn’t be more “wrong”. Once you learn how to generate “traffic” to your lead capture pages, lead generation will surely be the easy part.
Leads and traffic affiliate marketing is the life blood of any affiliate business.
But you must understand that traffic and lead generation for any business typically requires a monetary cost which is significantly higher than getting customers to purchase your offer from you.
Therefore, it is very important to have great conversion strategies in place once your business is up and running so that you can improve your bottom line.

3. Create YouTube Video Tips and Tutorials – http://youtube.com (Place affiliate link in the description)
You can create YouTube videos giving away some free information, tips or strategies about your affiliate offer(s).
It is a fact that not only is your video going to get a lot of views, but you can get free traffic generation to your affiliate links.
Simply include your affiliate links in the description section of the video and people will definitely check it out.
This works very well even if the video is recorded from a basic video camera or your smart phone, but it’s all about value that you provide to the video viewer.
4. Create Your own Website (WordPress website creation)
Most people cannot see themselves blogging, but blogging is not as difficult as most people believe it to be.
Most WordPress blog websites are pre-designed and you simply choose your favorite website design style.
Configure the website settings for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) for your subject matter, then start blogging.
Bloggers typically post information about topics which they are very familiar with (usually 1500 word posts 2 to 4 times a week).
Blog posts can be any subject matter relating to your product offer or niche and you can place your affiliate links in the resource box at the end of the blog post.
If you post blogs continuously, you will eventually grow huge numbers of web traffic and blog subscribers (leads) from organic top page rankings on topics in the major search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.

1. Google Ads – https://ads.google.com (Pay Per Click advertising)
Tens of millions of searches are performed on Google every minute, and most of search results pages include Google ads.
Google Ads are advertisements which appear at the top and bottom of search result pages on Google.com.
Google charges advertisers a set bid amount cost for each time that advertiser’s website link is clicked.
Google Ads does NOT accept affiliate links to be advertised.
All websites advertised must be approved by Google and meet their policies and terms.
2. Social Media – (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)
Social Media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are great ways that you can promote and sell your affiliate offers(s)… if, you already have some sort of following already in place.
If not, you may want to focus most of your efforts on building leads.
Many may not agree with this, but it can be equally as time consuming to build a social media following as it will be to generate affiliate leads.
If you have already established a significant social media following, use it… but if not, do not divide your lead building efforts with trying to get social media followers.
Stick with affiliate lead generation to build your massive list database of re-usable prospects (your audience).
3. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO is the process of ranking your website in the “organic free section” of Google search and other major search engines.
Google as well as other search engines scan the code of every website and ranks it based on a number of conditions.
These conditions include valuable and relevant content related to the term searched, the number of pages visited, the length of time that pages are visited, etc.
It is important for you to get as close to the top of the first page as possible of your search term because it increases the chances of people clicking on your website for you to possibly make a sale.
But it is a big misconception that only the homepage of your website should be on the first page of Google within a given related search term.
Take a blog website for instance. All of the “blog post” pages of your website are the ones that will most often get first page ranking in several various related Google search terms.
The more (valuable) blog posts that you have out on the web, the more exposure you will receive throughout various areas of Google and other major search engines.
Invest the time to educate yourself on Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for your website or blog.
