How to Create a High Converting Affiliate Marketing Sales Funnel


hey everyone this is neil patel here and today we have another Q&A Thursday video I’m here with Adam Liddell che from viewership hello everyone and this week’s question is oh I’m gonna get this name wrong but I’m gonna try khubaib Khan and I get that right khubaib I don’t know all right we apologize for not knowing how to pronounce your name I really am sorry but thank you for your comment and the question is that can I make a website for free just to start up and then will it work for affiliate marketing basically the affiliate marketing this is a good question and thank you for leaving the comment a lot of people believe and they have this misconception in their head that if you want to do affiliate marketing you need to spend money on a premium domain name spend a lot of money on a design and that is completely wrong you can start off with the free wordpress theme start up the site you can even have your site on wordpress.com you can try to build your traffic and then monetize it does not cost money to do affiliate marketing yes most affiliates make money from facebook ads or Google ads and then they send that traffic to their landing page and then push people to whatever products or services that they’re selling that works that’s a good model but you don’t have to start off that way doing something as simple as throwing up a free WordPress site will do well and if I was to start off in doing affiliate marketing I had little to no money here’s what I would do I’d go to wordpress.com set up a website pick a vertical that I’m passionate about if you’re not passionate you won’t create enough content when you’re passionate you’re willing to put in the hours the time energy it takes to succeed it’s not gonna be easy but I believe in you you can do it once you have a topic you’re passionate about go and create content whether it’s text-based content video based content audio based content you pick whatever is the easiest for you you can take all your phone crazy some videos write some blog posts whatever it may be now that you got your content going I want you to do a simple thing go to tools like buzzsumo they have free versions look at other titles that have done well you can also use SEM rush for free or ubersuggest put in keywords see what ideas are popular and go and see what’s working and start creating more of that kind of content because that’ll help you get even more traffic you got a base of content already before you do this now you’re starting to write content that people want to search for share you can even do that first if you want but generally I say used to start off just by writing what you’re passionate about and want to get off your mind or your chest and then what you want to do is you want to start sharing the content look to see on Twitter who’s tweeting out similar content ask them to tweet out your content you want to see who you link to email them let them know that you link to them ask them to share your content if you’re in places like the European Union make sure you follow gdpr rules I don’t know if you can just randomly email people worst case user web site contact form let them know that you emailed let them know that you link to them and ask them to share your content this will start helping you get traffic then you want to use tools like subscribers and hello bar to collect emails this is collect subscribers get people coming to your site once they subscribe you can notify them every time you have new blog posts that are coming out you do this for six months you’ve built up a community or audience and then when you mention products within your blog post that your affiliate for and you push them you’ll start seeing income that’s how it have to sow let’s start if I were you and I had you know no money to spend on Facebook ads and you’re just starting off and I’m not saying that doesn’t mean you can’t do Facebook ads and make that work but that’s how I start off if I had little to no money you don’t need a registered domain name you don’t have to pay for hosting you can monetize by just creating a simple website on wordpress.com and following the steps I mentioned yeah I mean the only thing I would add to that is just make sure you’re getting people’s email addresses when they’re coming to your website like if I were to start a YouTube all over again and just want to you know collect email addresses I would literally have a one page address that would send everyone to for my YouTube videos but hey go here click the email and then when you want to launch an affiliate program or obviously your own product that’s true you promote to the email list and you can use hellobar com to do that for free there it is so there it is alright thank you for watching
