4 Steps to affiliate success: Step 2, Build your Platform

Step 2

Build your Platform


What is a platform?

It is a “homebase” for establishing your authority and audience. Basically a place where you can get your thoughts out and build your reputation.


Why do you need a platform?

  1. Control your brand: Don’t let a thirt party take it away
  2. Trust & reputation: Perception is reality
  3. Easiest path to success: the best place to sell


Kinds of Platform

there are many kinds of platforms, here are a few examples.

  1. Your own blog
  2. Potcasting
  3. Facebook
  4. Youtube
  5. Twitter
  6. Forum


The best methode is to have a blog in the middle and make sure that all the other platforms refer back to the blog. Of course you can build a wordpress blog, but who is going to find you? It is better to use a viral blogging system. Empower network provides that. Click here if you want to find out more


4 Key Steps in platform building


Step1 create a brand

  1. A personal brand, people buy you
  2. Or a business brand


Step 2  Get a domain and hosting


Think about it, what do you want it to say?

Is it: Brandable, personal or descriptive (SEO)


Personally, for hosting I recommend Hostgator. They are affordable and you can have mulptiply websites.


Step 3 Create your blog.

Of course there many ways to create a blog.  Don’t use the free blogsites. Like blogger.com, because you want to look serious.

Like I said before, with WordPress you can build your own blogsite.  Personally I use the Viralblogging system from Empower network.  Empower netork is an authority on the internet and so will your blog be.  You get a ready to go website and you can blog under you own domain. It’s $25 a month, but it’s worth every cent.

The best is to combine the two, so you create strong backlinks.


Step 4 Build a list ( from the start)

The money is in the list!

Make sure you have an opt-in on your site so you can collect emails.

If people subscribe to your list you can reach them through email and build a relationship with them. You can ad value and you can promote other products out of that niche

You can send people email automatically. I recommend GetResponse, because for internet marketers like us the have the most features. Click here if you want to save $30


In my next blog I will talk about how to grow your audience. Meanwhile, feel free to look around my blog and think about what it can do for you.

4 Steps to affiliate success: Step 1 what is your Niche

There are many ways to be successful as an affiliate, but this article lays out the process that we have found to be the most reliable and sustainable while still being very inexpensive. Many affiliates try to skip steps 2 & 3 and go straight from picking a product to immediately promoting it. This makes it really difficult to succeed, and doesn’t set up your business for success, so make sure to implement the steps in the order they’re listed here.

Step 1

Choosing your niche:

3 questions:

  1.      What are you interested in 
  2.      Do people spend money in it
  3.      Are there product to promote


1. What are you interested in?

  1.      Passions, fitness, causes, education.
  2.      Hobbies, fishing, gardening, chess
  3.      Problems, obesitas, depressions, home repair
  4.      Trends, healthy living, organic eating


Your goal: Become an Authority in the niche


2. Do people spend money in the niche?

Look for:

  1.      Advertizers, online and offline
  2.      Magazines about the subject
  3.      Books. Are there many books about the subject?
  4.      Associations/Groups


         3. Are there Product to promote?

  1.      Information products (How to)
  2.      Physical products

Best is a combination!


Secret to success: Niche it Down!

Mosy people go to broad. The problem? Too competitive what makes it difficult to earn money


Category—-à Niche —-à Sub-Niche

Health & Fitness —-à Dieting—–à Weight Loss for busy Moms

Cooking——à  Baking——-à Gluten free baking


So if you narrow it down, the competition is less but there are still enough people left who are interested. Make sure that they see you as the authority.

In the next blog we will talk about Step 2: Build your Platform

The most important thing is that you learn how to Create traffic.

4 characteristics of successful people

What do successful people different than non successful people?

Successfull people do things that unsuccessful people don’t want to do.

But if you narrow it down to just a few charactistics, this is my conclusion:

  1. Successful people have a clear vision. What means that the see the big picture.
  2. Successful people take responsebility. Always do more than what you are paid for. They make it there problem.
  3. Successful people work in there unique strength. So stick with what you are good at.
  4. Successful people deliver High Value.

But besides these 4 features you have to understand that success is a skill that everybody can learn. Success is not a if, but will. Will you do what ever it takes? Are you open to change? Because how you change is how you succeed.

Read the right books, fire all the negative people arround you and surround yourself with the right kind of people. It is the people you spend time with who you most likely will become.

We consider ourselves as successful and we’ll keep learning

10 headline blueprint that work like crazy!

If you are interested in driving traffic to your website, or are into list building or affiliate marketing, then you probably know the importance of a great headline.

It’s often been said that the ability to write great headlines is the most important skill in all of copywriting. That might be true.

After all, unless you have a great headline your selling message won’t get read.

This applies to solo ads, classified ads, sales letters, blog posts, social media marketing … basically anytime you communicate with the public.

In the email marketing and solo advertising business we often talk about the “hierarchy” of a great email ad. That’s just a fancy way to say that any email ad, especially a solo ad, must have three key elements in order to be effective. And by effective, I mean profitable.

1. A subject line (or headline) that causes the email to get opened

2. An offer the reader wants

3. A call to action that gets the reader to click now

If your ad has those three things you will likely do very well indeed. If you get one of them wrong you risk losing profits.

But here’s the problem for most people … how do you write a highly effective headline or email subject line?

Most professional copywriters have a swipe file they use. When they see a great headline or subject line they copy it and use it for inspiration. Of course, we never want to use anyone’s copy word-for-word without express permission but we are free to draw inspiration from great marketing. And we should do so. After all, why reinvent the wheel?

A second trick of the trade is having a blueprint to follow.

By blueprint I mean a simple “fill in the blanks” formula that empowers you to crank out winning headlines and subject lines all day long.

So if you’ve ever wanted to write great headlines and subject lines at will, or if you’ve ever been stuck and not known how to get started, I hpoe this video helps you.

the biggest challenge

If you want to grow your moneyzone, you have to come out of you comfort zone!

Reblogged From Step out your comfortzone and create new opportunities

It’s the comfortzone that has its grip on you

Are you happy with your life as it is? Great! & stop reading, or please read my blog and try to see your life in a different perspective.
Do you have the feeling that you take all out of it, as if its your last week to live? Do you follow your passions and do you have time anough to spent with the people you want to spent it with?
So many people around me don’t dare to step out their comfortzone. And I think that they are holding themselves back from new opportunities.


There is a whole world out there, on the other side of your comfortzone!

There is a lot complaining around me about having a boring job, the crisis, the costs of blablabla, and those same people just stay in their comfortzone of what they are used to do. Many people are afraid of taking steps forward for new things to explore, new things to learn, by following their inner voice.
Your inner voice is telling you what you REALLY would love to do. I’m sure everybody has one. But not many people listen to it.
So what’s keeping you to start developping yourself, by using your senses for unknown ?
I did and it gave me good vibes, a new job and making money on the internet!
If you are afraid of letting go, you will always stay in the same situation you are.
You can change that by pulling new opportunities TO you.
Step out your comfortzone and learn, live life advangerous and passionate! Luck and succes will just come to you and it will bring you to a higher level in life. I am sure of that because that is how it always worked for me and for others around me. I believe it is a law of nature.
