Day 4 is dedicated to finding partner products and basic content creation skills.
As regards the search for partner products and why they are needed at all, read the materials of Marathon 2007. Nothing has changed absolutely on this topic this year. As before, Ed recommends using affiliate products solely for testing niches (of course, this does not mean that you cannot earn them all the time).
Today your task is to find at least 2-3 affiliate products for a niche previously selected.
(This information is for those who do not yet know how to use the Amazon admin panel.)
When you sign up as an Amazon partner, you will have access to the admin. panels where you can view statistics on conversions, sales, etc.
In the right admin menu, find Build Links / Widgets .
Click on it and among all the variety of pictures and widgets, find the block Product Links .
Click the button that the arrow points to and select the product. If you remember, with the help of Market Samurai I found the phrase diet nutrition supplements . Here for her, let's pick up the goods. (Nutritional supplements are just an example. Ideally, you should sell books, because in the future, if niche testing is successful, you will create information products and not organize a mini-factory on your kitchen in your kitchen wheels ”or something else.
After you press Go , you just have to select a product from the list,
click the Get HTML button, switch the display of the link to the Text Only
mode and copy the affiliate link
All, you can now paste this link into the text.
In the future, you will also need an image of the product. You will find it on the product description page on Amazon or in the ClickBank promotional materials. In both cases, you will most likely have to reduce the picture (why it is necessary, Ed and the company will tell on the 6th day.) I will not tell you how to do this, but if suddenly you do not have desktop applications that can perform such a simple operation, you can always use the absolutely free online Picnic service.
This year the process of creating content seems to be slightly different from last year. At least what Dan Rainey talks about was not in the past Marathon.
In short, you need to write an advertising text of 30-50 words long. With it, you not only have to lure the reader, but also have time to tell a little about the characteristics of the product and urge the reader to action.
For this, of course, it is desirable for you to know at least the basics of copywriting. I hope Ed and Dan will not limit themselves to real-life examples, but they will also tell you a bit of theory. (Here is a post on temukoprajting from the previous Marathon.) copy it into Word and break it into meaningful blocks. You can find such a description either in the characteristics of a product on Amazon, or in reviews about this product in the same place. (In the video, Dan uses the phrase vintage electric guitar , so the example that he leads, imprisoned for this phrase.)
Here is the original, divided into blocks:
There is entered e, a description of the characteristics of the product, and a conclusion. Your task is to make this description more attractive, so that the maximum number of visitors would like to click on your affiliate link. At the same time, you need to shorten the text to 30-50 words.
Rather All in all, you won’t be able to do it the first time, as Dan’s failed. Here’s the first version of the modified text:
Note the use of the words discover , uncover . Such words (plus find out and other similar words and phrases) immediately attract the attention of the reader, and he wants to know more about what you are writing about. Also note the construction of " if you are (a serious collector) ... ". She points to belonging to a particular group, which also has a positive effect on the reader’s attitude to the text.
Despite the changes, the text was long. Here is the second option:
Already better, but still not right - there are still too many words in the text. Here is the final version:
Examine all the variations of the text. Notice what Dan leaves and gets rid of. You will write and rewrite your texts in the same way.
As you can see, this mini-advertising itself has turned out in the appropriate style. Your task today is to write a couple of the same for your niche (niche).
