Without further ado, let’s find out!
These Affiliate Marketing Mistakes Can RUIN Your Affiliate Business Overview
- Traffic Source
- Niche Down
- Scale Down
These are the 3 things that Spencer Mecham says can RUIN your affiliate business in his latest blog post.
As we just started our affiliate business, we need to be careful about the traffic source.
There are a lot of ways to get traffic, but not all of them are going to be good for our business.
We need to make sure that we’re getting traffic from sources that are going to be interested in what we’re selling.
In the video, Spencer mentioned there are 2 types of Traffic:
- Search Engine Based
- Social Media Platforms
Both of these have their own benefits and drawbacks, but we need to make sure that we’re using them in the right way.
Search Engine Based
The main benefit of this traffic is that it’s very targeted.
People are searching for something specific, and if we can show up in those results, we’re going to get people who are already interested in what we’re selling.
The downside is that it can be very difficult to rank for these keywords, and it can take a long time to get traffic.
- Google (Website)
Social Media Platforms
The benefit of social media platforms is that we can reach a lot of people very quickly.
The downside is that the traffic isn’t always as targeted as we would like.
Spencer Mecham urges us to pick one traffic source and become the master of it.
Once you master one traffic source you can replicate it into any niche.
If you would ask Spencer where to start he would suggest starts with TikTok.
When we first started we tend to go broad and try to sell everything to everyone.
The problem with this is that it’s very difficult to be successful when we’re trying to sell everything to everyone.
It’s much easier to be successful when we focus on a specific niche.
For example, if we’re selling fitness products, it would be better to focus on a specific type of fitness like weight loss or bodybuilding.
We can still sell other products to this audience, but it’s important to have a main focus.
Spencer recommends that we start with one niche and then expand from there.
Again… same as niche down.
Now we would want to scale down to become the go-to guy or gal for that niche.
For example, if we’re selling weight loss products, we would want to focus on a specific type of weight loss like keto or intermittent fasting.
This way we can become the expert in that area and people will come to us for advice.
