Future of Affiliate Marketing in 2012

There is a lot of speculations that search engine giant google wants to weed out low quality affiliate sites from ranking higher and hence they are taking measures to prevent such sites ranking higher on the search results. In a step to control this google has introduced the plus google search which is an integration of the regular search results along with the browsers social activity. It means when a user is logged in during a query then he or she will get customized search result based on their activity in google plus networking site.

So what does this mean for affiliate marketing? It does not mean any damage to it but the only thing to worry about is to change the websites which are heavily promoting affiliate products without offering any value to the user. Try to implement a mixture of both user friendly and affiliate friendly content so that a win-win situation is created. You provide quality content and then take higher ranking that's it.

Moreover  social signals have become very predominant in deciding which page is very important or relevant to a particular user query made. It is now become the new wave among the affiliate marketing community to get as many social shares or votes as possible to remain at the top of the results which is what they ultimately are focusing on. But how do you get these so called social signals, its easy and not that everyone can achieve you need to take some action and burn some time creating valuable resource or content to your visitors.

Ask them to share if they feel the content was helpful and provide them with bookmarking and social sharing buttons so that they do the job for you. Make sure you maintain consistency and give the utmost importance to user experience rather than going after new ranking strategy because this is the long term goal one should aim for to sustain existing visitors and get repeat visitors. Affiliate marketing is all about targeting the right audience with right offer and as an affiliate you earn commission for doing this. It sounds simple but takes some efforts from your side, do not quit until success is yours.

What is Affiliate Marketing and How Does it Work

In simple words affiliate marketing is a type of business where income is shared between a merchant (the product owner) and the affiliate (who works for a commission). Whenever a affiliate makes a sale they get a fixed amount or percentage of the sale as commission from the merchant.

There are many advantages in this method of marketing to both the parties.

The benefits from affiliate marketing to the merchant is that he/she just creates a good product and offers a percentage of the revenue to the people who make a sale. The product owner does not have to worry about his marketing because everything will be taken care by the affiliates because they earn commission on a sale.

The benefits to the affiliates are they don't have to create their own product, they don't have to provide support to the customers after the sale. It is taken care by the product vendor.

Every affiliate will be given a unique link which they have to use to send visitors through it and when a visitor through this link makes a purchase, commission will be generated. The most common promotional method used for such marketing is building a website and placing your links in the website.

Be honest with your recommendations, you need to build trust in this business to get more sales. Keep posting useful and informational articles in your website around a specific topic, more the pages in your website more is the traffic your site gets. Try convert more number of visitors into buyer or customers, this is where the real success lies.

The vendor and the affiliate both have advantages of their own in this type of marketing, they can make more money if they co-operate each other and work. If these two parties work in a good rhythm more money can be made by both. Make a note this business gets easier only when you know how to get targeted traffic through your unique links.

There are many third party affiliate networks where both the affiliate and the vendor can sign up for free. The commission to both sides is paid equally by this network and they take a small share as their fee.
