How to Become a Super Affiliate and Make Commission-Part 3

And if you’re looking at the sample numbers up there right now and saying “I really have to get 1,000 people a day to make just $135 a day,” stop and think about it for just one moment. Consider this. Not only is a 0.40% conversion rate moderate to low at best, you can have far more than 1 website building those traffic numbers.
In fact, you should count on it. If you build only one website, you’ll never be a super affiliate. You might eventually snag that traffic, but you’ll never be the top level marketer you’re aiming to be. Consider what happens if you have 20 websites with 50 hits a day – it’s the same effect, and then there is something to work toward in increasing your traffic numbers. Yes, this is doable, and yes it will make you a lot of money. Another note I want to make is that your pages will not all convert at the same rate. Some conversions are much higher (as we’ll discuss soon), and some lower. It depends on the keyword you’ve optimized for, who you’re targeting and how eager your audience is to make a purchase. All of these are factors you must consider before making assumptions about how effective a site is.
There’s No Such Thing as a Bad Website
You cannot have a bad website. You may have an underperforming website, or one that needs more content, or one that needs to be upgraded a bit, but it isn’t bad as long as there are no zeroes in the formula that we’ve just gone over. You’ll be making money whenever there is money, traffic, and conversions involved. Now, the goal is to boost all of those numbers equally across the board. When we do that, we’ll be able to make a tremendous profit that can then be reinvested and turned into a viable marketing business.
Finding the Perfect Niche
Every business starts with the same thing – a good, solid, profitable niche. One of the major mistakes every failed affiliate marketer makes is not finding and sticking to a niche that works. They think they need to look for something new and exciting, the non-competitive niches, or that they need to try multiple niches over and over again to spread out their business.
Here’s a secret though – most major Super Affiliates will have only two major niches in which they focus their efforts. Sure, they’ll try other niches – hundreds of them in some cases. But, they only keep searching so they can find the two or three niches that are the absolute most profitable. Does it make sense to choose a niche, invest hours of time into it, make a lot of money, and then start over again? Of course not. You should take what works and do it again, rinsing and repeating to build a recurring income stream that you know for a fact works. Of course, before you can choose a single niche and invest all your time and money into it, you actually need to go out there and research a little bit to find out which ones are going to be worth your time. That’s where I come in.
Myths About Affiliate Marketing Niches
There are a lot more people out there selling affiliate marketing advice than those who have actually managed to use that advice to make their fortunes. And, unfortunately, those people are constantly aiming for ways to stand out with exciting new strategies that teach new things no one has ever seen before. They tell you all sorts of things that are generally untrue or questionable at best. Do any of these sound familiar:
• Some niches are too competitive
• You cannot make money selling “money making” products
• Clickbank is the only way to go
• High gravity means a product is too competitive
They’re all false and while sometimes it might seem like they’re true, it all really comes down being able to stand back and knock out the better website. There is no such thing as a niche that is too competitive. There are just websites that don’t do enough to be competitive. There are plenty of sites other than Clickbank. High gravity is a very good thing. And money making products can be highly effective…if you sell them properly. So, instead of just taking what you hear at face value, let’s take a look at what does and does not work when researching a new niche.
