you are too much on a pay-per-click advertising network for your affiliate marketing? Some affiliates rely on Google AdWords only, and they lose to much revenue.
Many affiliates get into affiliate marketing after reading one of the popular ebooks on the topic that will be sold online. But most of these ebooks are focused on training people to use Google AdWords. I suspect that is because Google has a higher volume of traffic and it is very easy to set up quickly your first affiliate campaigns. Many affiliates never get past AdWords, though, and that’s where they are the losers.
You should already know that it is never a good idea to put all your eggs in one basket. In particular, when a basket has seen better days. I can assure you that for the most part to an advertising network, particularly Google AdWords, is a smart strategy for growing your affiliate marketing business.
For some products advertising on the affiliate networks will be even more profitable. In fact, you should with all three major pay-per-click networks. They are Yahoo Search Marketing, Microsoft adCenter and Google Adwords.
Here are five reasons why you should with any other Pay-Per-Click advertising network.
Reason One – you get no traffic
Sometimes when you set up a campaign in one of the advertising networks that you do not receive any traffic. This can happen for a number of reasons. Sometimes you can change anything get in your campaign, on your ads, but at other times nothing seems to help. To turn advertise. They could in no time.
Two basic – Because of the Editorial Policy
Sometimes you can not get specific campaigns accepted by the particular network’s editorial and content guidelines.
For example, Google has recently declined campaigns to promote websites for music and movie file-sharing. I tried to run a legitimate campaign for one of the largest legal music download services, and it’s just too much effort to let Google closer look and realize that my campaign is legitimate. I have given up more or less and the campaign is now held at adCenter Yahoo Search Marketing and MSN.
Reason Three – for the price of Traffic
Sometimes the price at which you will receive the traffic on a particular keyword phrase very differently from one other network. So if you are not getting traffic to be paid at a price you are willing to try changing to another network.
Reason Four – To replicate your campaigns
What do you usually do after you find a successful affiliate product? You improve your ads, add more keywords, add more countries and increase your investment? Now, do not forget to add more ad networks.
For every successful affiliate campaign you identify, you should try it in operating profit in all three major pay-per-click networks, if at all possible.
Reason Five – to test new products and retest old
Too many affiliate marketers are just testing out new affiliate marketing campaigns with Google AdWords. Which, if the affiliate product successfully on Google AdWords, they could roll out the campaign on the other networks. This strategy is seriously flawed.
The problem is that it compares so many affiliate marketing with Google AdWords a few years. They have pushed the price to travel on many of the popular search terms and it is much harder to get cheap clicks now in many areas. An affiliate product that once was is no longer profitable use of AdWords because of the rising price of transportation very well.
And right there is why many affiliates give up. I recommend to test that break the habit of subsidiaries only with Google Adwords new affiliate products. Try some products first at Yahoo Search Marketing and MSN adCenter. Remember that traffic may or may not be cheaper than AdWords. This is not critical or anything, because you quickly discover that exchange ratios are also different.
I gave you five reasons to take your advertising dollars and spend them elsewhere. Your affiliate marketing business will be better off if you want.
Maybe you should back tested on some of the affiliate products you and threw up for AdWords. You could just identify some affiliate products that are actually profitable with another pay-per-click network.
