So you're ready to graduate from a white belt to a black belt affiliate extraordinaire? If you are beyond the label of "newbie", progressed beyond being an intermediate, and you want to take things to the next level, then you're going to need to learn some advanced affiliate marketing strategies.
In this article I will be digging deep into the affiliate marketing bag of tricks to reveal two powerful strategies that should only be attempted by marketers who are experienced. If you are in this category, then keep on reading as you are about to learn some advanced methods that will allow you to take your income to dizzy new heights!
Strategy One – Build Your Own Blog Network
If you are heavily involved with SEO then I am sure you have heard about or even used private blog networks before. These networks are set up by one owner or multiple members and for a monthly subscription fee, you're able to add posts to the network and gain backlinks to your Websites. This is the basic, beginner way to use a blog network.
If you want to take this strategy to the extreme and get more powerful backlinks, then the best thing you can do is to create your own blog network. This will take careful planning, execution and precaution to pull off but the end result (if done properly) will be a powerful network of high page rank blogs that you have complete control over and can use to get top search engine rankings for multiple keywords.
Setting this network up will take time, effort, and an investment of money to purchase SEO hosting and several managed domains with page rank. Once the set-up process is completed, you will then need to maintain the network and make sure that it does not drop in value. If you're ready to take your SEO to the next level, this strategy is really powerful!
Strategy Two – Build An Outsourcing Team
Having a worker build some backlinks to your website or getting someone to write a few articles for you is basic affiliate marketing 101. But building an outsourcing team to run 90% of your business is definitely an advanced strategy that should only be attempted by marketers who already have a profitable business and use a proven system that can easily be duplicated by others.
Once you are in the position to start building a team, the best thing to do is start off small by hiring only one or two workers. Then as you start to earn more income and you are confident that you can handle a larger team, continue to hire more workers.
Some of the best (and cheapest) outsource staff can be found in the Philippines. Ultimately, you should interview multiple potential staff via Skype and put them through a trial period before you hire them.
Typically, outsource staff do not stick around for long so you will need to systematize your business and be able to quickly train new staff. It's also important to realize that you will need to actively manage your staff and make sure they are staying efficient with their work.
Ultimately, if you want to live the "4 hour work week" or the "Internet business lifestyle", outsourcing is the best way to achieve these goals.
One last warning! If you are a newbie reading this article, please do not attempt these advanced affiliate marketing strategies until you are already expecting a good income and have a great deal of experience under your belt. Both of these strategies are very potent and powerful so only put them into action if you are experienced.
