Exclamation Affiliate Tutorial Part 2 Build it and they will come?

Affiliate Tutorial – Part 2 – Build it and they will come?
-by Domina Doll

Welcome to the Adultshopping.com Affiliate Tutorials.

Many affiliates make the mistake of thinking that you simply have to sign up for an affiliate site, and your customers will automatically find you. This is not the case. Just because you have a dot.com, doesn't mean your customers will be able to find you, or once they do, will buy anything. So what should you do? As an affiliate it is your job to invest some time in research and finding unique ways to promote your site.

Okay, so you've put up your affiliate site, plastered your snazzy banners and links all around the net, and now you just have to wait for the customers to come. Right? Well, you may be waiting a while. Sure links and banners may get you conversions and traffic, but if want to attract customers and convert that traffic into sales, then you need to create original content.

So what is original content? It is the icing on the cake that smart adult marketers use to entice their readers/viewers/buyers to their store and keep them coming back. It is basically about giving away free content or information, or providing a service that people want to use.

Content can take many forms. For instance, perhaps you are an expert on sexual relationships and you write relationship articles or advice for your readers. Maybe you have sexy photos of girls using sex toys and you have a Sex Toy Photo of the Day? Maybe you write erotica, or build an erotic writers retreat where people can post their sizzling stories. Perhaps you review a adult films and have an adult film guide. Maybe your site features a BDSM Guide for novices.

Types of Content:

  • Informative Content – it can be used to pre sell your product or service to your visitors. Good content will prove to your visitors that you are credible enough in your field. With that, it can increase your sales conversions.
  • Product Reviews – it is another popular web content type used in giving reactions towards a certain product or service you have used. Make sure you make a honest review because customers don't like to be fooled. Be credible and they will come back for your reviews and advice again and again.
  • News stories about your industry are fun and interesting for readers. Sex sells, or so they say. Every day there are interesting things happening in the adult industry that is news you can use. New innovative product, or Porn Star product line? AVN's top video awards? Man caught with a suitcase of stolen dildos? Sign up to news feeds and repost giving credit snippets of stories with your own input.
  • Humorous Anecdotes – Everyone likes to laugh. Maybe you post funny news or anecdotes, or funny cartoons each day. If you do this on a regular basis, people will come back for a laugh.
  • Resource Articles and How-To-Pieces – it is a popular article that will really make the visitors interested, such as sexual health sites, how to sexuality articles, how to articles for niches (gay, lesbian, bdsm, moms, couples...)
  • Fiction such as erotica
  • Visual mediums like photos, art or cartoons
  • Interactive mediums like upload your own story, or games
  • Videos - that you make yourself via Youtube or YouPorn, or content from other affiliate programs.


Putting original content on your site will get your shop indexed and better ranked in Search Engines. Better ranking means potential customers will find your site before your competitor. Having quality content will keep them coming back.

How to get custom content.

  • Write it yourself
  • Hire a Writer to do it for you
  • Use free or public domain content from other affiliate sources or websites
  • Do your own You-Tube/ You-Porn videos.
  • Start your own sex blog and write about news, funny stuff, free porn, sex relationships, erotic stories, etc...

Do:

  • Write or post original content
  • Write articles that are well-written, informative and fun
  • Keep your content fresh- Post regularly as webcrawlers will re-index your site more frequently, which will increase your rating in search engines
  • Post Quality content
  • More is better- Post multiple pages on various topics/ sub-topics.
  • Write about what you know, and have information your readers want.
  • Write in a conversational, friendly tone.
  • Keep Articles between 450-750 words. Most people don't want to read something longer than that.
  • Keep your most popular or important content with links on your front page near the top, to direct people to it and get them to go further into your site.
  • Offer a free newsletter with quality content to your readers
  • Build a blog
  • Niche market


Don't:

  • Steal other people's copyrighted content (words, images or videos)
  • Create the same site that you've seen a hundred times in the same way



Resources:

Free Online articles you can repost to your site:

Hint: Put "sex toy" reviews in their search engine to find relevant reviews

Hire a Freelancer to Write Articles, Reviews & SEO Content

Writers bid on jobs, prices vary but you can get articles for as low as $10 to $50 per article depending upon length and content.



Good Luck!

Hello Mrclimax-toys,

This is easier to do if you have a blog and then link the articles back to your store. But you can also add articles to custom pages. Please check out the Customization Guide under resource to see how to make custom pages.

Thanks!
Domina
