So you have read countless guides, blogs and forums on Affiliate Marketing, words like keyword density and click through rates are no longer foreign to you. You have finally arrived at the point of taking some action. The first and most crucial step you need to take is to select a product to promote, choose your niche if you will. Sounds easy huh? For more details www.affiliate-sale-booster.com well think again, you wade your way through the products promoted on Clickbank and are dazzled by those with high gravity and the promise of high returns!. in a frenzy you whip together a word press blog and then head over to AdWords to drive some people eager to part with their money to your site. What happens next can be discouraging. One of a few things may have happened. Your campaigns are costing you a fortune per click, congratulations, you have picked a niche which is highly competitive, the keywords you are targeting are also being targeted by thousands (if not more) other marketers driving the cost per click of said keyword sky high. Perhaps you don't have this problem but you have no traffic! this scenario is most often due to choosing a niche market that has a low 'want" factor, namely not many people are looking to purchase the product you are pushing. Steps you need to take once you have selected your Niche market: 1. Ensure the product you are promoting has a market with a good number of people willing to buy. Use keyword tools to see if there are enough searches daily for your keyword, also check out the competition in Google, if there are no or a small number of AdWords ads running then avoid this niche. 2. Use Google's keyword tool before committing to a campaign, check out the cost per click of you keywords 3. Find long tailed keywords with low competition. Another problem a lot of "newbie" marketers experience is procrastinating over which niche market to select. Possibly the most simple way to do this is to look at Google hot trends to see what people are searching for. For more details www.affiliate-directories-online.com Another simple niche finding tool is typing words such as "How to", "where can I buy" etc into Google and spend some time investigating. I would recommend you spend a minimum of 4 - 8 hours researching your niche and finding desirable keywords before deciding to promote it.
