There’s no shame when it comes to being a beginner with affiliate marketing.
There’s a lot you need to focus on.
- Picking your niche (help with that here).
- Finding the perfect high converting offers to promote.
- Getting the right traffic source and generating good traffic.
- Offering bonuses for the products that you’re going to promote.
And there’s still much more.
That’s what I wanted to make the process of creating landing pages much easier for you.
Landing Pages For Dummies
So what is a landing page anyway?
It’s a page that allows you to focus on one main goal when it comes to marketing.
Some of these goals include…
- Getting leads.
- Making a sale.
- Signing up for a webinar.
- Preselling or reviewing an offer (perfect for affiliates).
- Or even sending to a thank you page after downloading a freebie.
You can do a lot with landing pages, and there are many to choose from, too.
I recommend that you go with a landing page builder that fits your needs as an affiliate.
If you are just getting started with affiliate marketing?
You can always stick to a landing page builder that is priced friendly, as this blog post shows.
But let’s take a closer look at how you can utilize them specifically for affiliate marketing.
The Squeeze Page
This is usually the top of an affiliate marketing funnel, and the goal is very simple.
Collect email addresses.
You do this by simply offering something for free (that your audience wants) and in return, they give you their email address.
You only need a few elements to a successful squeeze page, too.
- Call to action.
- Make sure it’s mobile-optimized as well.
The good news is that pretty much every landing page out there is mobile-optimized, which is helpful.
But here’s a good tip for you.
If you want to see some of the best landing pages in action?
Go to Bing and type in a keyword that is related to your niche, and then check out some of the ads at the top spots.
Most of them are doing lead generation and utilizing high-converting squeeze pages.
Model what works.
Note: I said model, not copy, there’s a difference!
The Download Page
This is your way of saying “Thank you” for trusting me with your email, and of course, where your visitor gets to download their freebie.
This is a great spot for putting a wide variety of buttons or links…
- Their download, obviously.
- Links to your social media accounts like YouTube or a Facebook group.
- Or any type of affiliate link for an offer that is related to what they’re looking for.
No need to complicate the process, as this page is simple, and it doesn’t take too long to get up and running.
But what happens after this page?
Well, they start getting their follow-up emails, which lead to more landing pages.
The Presell Page
This is my favorite type of landing page.
Presell pages allow you to do a variety of things, but all in all, you’re most likely going to be…
- Providing value, which leads to an affiliate recommendation.
- Doing a product review, which is usually the step before buying.
- And you can’t forget about adding bonuses which is a huge converter.
So what types of content do you usually see on presell pages?
Well, it depends on how in-depth you want to be.
If you’re just providing value or doing a review (both through video), all you might have is…
- A headline at the top.
- A video of the value or review that you are doing.
- And at the bottom will be a button with a call to action (where your affiliate link is).
As I said, it’s nothing too difficult (which is why it’s called for dummies) :)
But if you are planning on presenting bonuses?
Here is what I recommend that you put on your presell page…
- A headline on the top.
- A video below (which can be a review video).
- And then you want to list all of the bonuses down below the video.
But not just a list of your bonuses, make sure that you provide a price value of how much they are worth, and most importantly, how they can benefit the person who is interested in getting them.
Features are great, but the benefits are better.
Benefits are what ultimately allow you to get more sales and make more commissions.
Here is a helpful phrase that can help you out…
- This is beneficial because…
Add that phrase after any feature, so that it looks a little something like this…
You get an organic traffic video training video, and this is beneficial because it allows you to get as much free traffic as you like.
I hope that makes sense.
You can always simply ask yourself…
How will this benefit the customer the most?
You won’t be able to go wrong with that.
So that’s affiliate marketing landing pages for dummies.
There are tons of landing pages that you can create, as talked about in the top of the page, but these three I discussed in this post will most likely be the bulk of your affiliate marketing efforts.
Affiliate marketing comes down to this…
- Getting traffic.
- Collecting leads.
- All while being able to help them out and make commissions at the same time.
Don’t complicate the process!
It’s not as difficult as many people out there make it.
Have a great day.
