Your Own Website is Critical for Niche Affiliate Marketing
Niche marketing is a great way to build a home business. Everyone can find a niche that
they can market that best suits their individual passions and interests. This is what
makes niche affiliate marketing so enjoyable. You can choose to market products and
services that you actually have interest, knowledge, and passion for.
I see people trying to market their niche in a wide variety of ways. Blogging,
articles, classifieds, PPC's, etc. Don't get me wrong, these are all terrific
marketing methods and people have been extremely successful using all of them. Heck, I
built my first online business using nothing more than properly written and placed online
classifieds. But it was when I built my own Website that my home business success, as well
as my online income, really began to flourish.
So what is a niche Website? Well it's just what it sounds like, a website based around
your niche. The niche is up to you, it can really be anything that you love sharing with
others, something you're passionate about, or just anything that you have knowledge about
that you can share with others. The key to a great niche website is content.
Original, interesting, informative content. This is the meat of the website, this is
what draws in the visitors. Content is also what gives you top search engine rankings,
and this is the key to nailing a niche. When you have a content rich website, you will
always have a fresh supply of new and return visitors. And then depending on the nature
of your niche, you can monetize accordingly.
Six Benefits of Building Your Own Niche Website ...
1. Having your own Website allows you to properly pre-sell your customers. Pre-selling
is a key to high conversions. People on the Net are not looking to get sold, they are
looking for information. When you have a content rich website, a site that is informing
and interesting to your visitors, you can successfully pre-sell them on whatever it is
that you are offering.
Pre-sold customers are much more likely to purchase from you because they feel like
they are making the decision to do so on their own. People do not like being sold, they
like to feel that they are in control of the buying experience. Pre-selling equals a
warmer audience and high traffic conversions.
2. Having a Website allows you to generate a returning customer base. This is also a
key component to long term, ever increasing affiliate incomes. When you make a sale,
that's great. But how great is it when that customer comes back to you to meet their needs
again ...and again... and again. Obviously this is a great thing.
When you can develop a relationship with your customers you will be able to make offers
to them over and over, and they will be more apt to purchase. Having an informative niche
website allows you to build a relationship with your visitors, even if it only be through
the pages of your site. When people see something they like, they keep coming back. Repeat
customers plus a constant flow of new ones equals an ever growing income.
