(bold music) – Hello, everyone, this is
Spencer from Buildapreneur, and we’re gonna talk about blogs, and affiliate marketing today, okay? And blogging and affiliate marketing is actually the way I was
introduced to affiliate marketing, and I spent my entire first year just doing affiliate marketing with blogs. So, fairly familiar with it, and we’re gonna use one
of my first sites ever as the example as we go through this, and at the very end, I’m
actually gonna make an offer. I’m gonna offer you a completely free affiliate marketing course that goes over a lot more than just this, and just stay till the end, and you can get the course for free. So, the first thing
that’s really important is when you choose your blog, you need to typically choose a niche. Okay, so, Google likes a blog to be about something specific. If you choose a blog, and
you make it all vague, and you’re like, I wanna be an affiliate for this, and this, and this, and that, and this, and none of ’em are related, your site isn’t cohesive and it’s gonna struggle to rank for things, okay? It’s not impossible, it’s just harder. So, that’s the first thing, just pick a niche and go from there, and you can make multiple blogs or however you wanna do that,
but, per blog, pick a niche. So, the first thing, and
we’re gonna use my niche, which is stock market, okay,
that’s the first blog I made. ‘Kay, so once you’ve done that, it’s time to start doing
some keyword research. I need to write a blog
post, what’s my first step? Well, let’s figure out what
I wanna right it on, okay? I’m using a tool called Keywordtool,io, ‘kay, and so you can use that. You can also use something called Google, Google Ads, where it has a free tool called Google Keyword Planner, that you can use if you sign
up for an AdWords account, but this one should be
just fine, as you can see. I typed in stock market and
got 652 unique keywords, okay. So, what you’re doing
is you’re looking for, what you’re really looking for, is buyer-related keywords, okay? Typically, someone looking
for stock market hours or stock market crash,
or stock market game. It’s gonna be hard to get them to just go buy something, right? They’re really not
looking to buy something, there’s no intent there to buy something. You might be able to snag a
few, but for the most part, you’re gonna struggle to
get them to buy, okay, so we’re just gonna keep scrolling. There’s 600, right, so, and I’m not sure where in here are the ones that I chose, but I’ll show you ’em if I see ’em. Anyway, stock market course, okay, stock market course right
there, okay, that’s a good one. Someone’s looking to buy a
course in the stock market, right, they’re looking for
you to sell them something. ‘Kay, stock market education, maybe a little less
buyer-related, but similar. Someone that wants to learn
about the stock market, and if you can introduce
them to the right product, they’re very likely to buy. Stock market for beginners, that’s somebody looking
that could probably buy. So, a lot of things like that, okay? So, you’re gonna pick one of those, and you’re gonna choose one phrase, okay? Don’t choose something
really, really short. Don’t choose stock market
’cause you’re probably not gonna rank for stock market ever, but choose something long,
the best stock market course or something like that, okay,
something very, very specific, that you can focus that whole article on, and rank for just that small,
minute phrase or keyword. So, the two that I chose, that
I’m gonna do an example here, is the Best Technical
Analysis Books, okay, and the technical analysis
books is basically books about the stock market, okay? So, when I was doing this,
somewhere in these 652, I found the best technical analysis books, and I was like, I’m gonna
write an article on that. These people are looking
to buy a book, okay? So, I proceeded to step two, and step two is you need to connect with the proper affiliate programs, okay? So now I know, okay, I
need to be doing books, where is a place that I can refer them to stock market books? And the place, kind of obvious, is Amazon. Sells tons of books, and it’s really easy to sign up for Amazon’s affiliate program. Just Google it and you can sign up for it. Anyway, so, that’s what
it was for this one. A couple other places you can go. If you have a legitimate
site, and kind of a legitimate brand already set up, you
can sign up for an affiliate with, Commission Junction, but they’re a little more picky, so you do need to have
kind of a legitimate looking brand for them to sign up. If they don’t feel like
you’re either gonna deliver or that you’re gonna
kinda spam their links, they won’t let you sign up. So, Commission Junction’s one. Another one that pretty much everyone can sign up for is JVZoo, ‘kay, and then there’s tons of different affiliate products in
there, you can log in, and you’ll see all kinds
of categories and things, and I have videos that kind
of explain JVZoo better. And then there’s ClickBank,
and so you can go to ClickBank, quick signup, and you can sign
up to be an affiliate for, same thing, tons of
categories on ClickBank, and you can find products
and sales funnels that other people have. Cool thing about these
last two is a lot of ’em’ll pay you 50% of the money they
make off people you send, so much more than Amazon,
which pays six, eight, ten percent, depending on how
many people you’re sending. ‘Kay, so now we’ve got our programs, and we’ve got our keyword, and then we’re gonna
write the article, okay, so we’re gonna show you this technical analysis books article. I hired this out, you can got
to a site like, that’s, and
you can hire it out for 20, 30 bucks, but what you’re gonna wanna do is you’re gonna wanna write an article, one that’s kinda of focused
on your keyword, okay? So you’re gonna want that phrase you chose to kinda be sprinkled throughout it, and variations of that phrase
sprinkled throughout it, so Google gets a very, very clear picture, this is what it’s about, ‘kay, so you wanna use it in the title, Best Technical Analysis Books, and you wanna really just give Google this good idea of what your site’s about, what that page is about, okay? ‘Cause Google will never rank
you if they don’t know that. ‘Kay, so, there it is, and you can see I signed up to be an affiliate
of ten different books, and I wrote a really long article. Google likes long articles, okay, especially when people are searching for something like
this, Google knows that, and they want a long, very useful article, not just kinda some weak put together, you didn’t really do any
work or research article. ‘Kay, so you write this
beautiful, long article, and then each one of these
is an affiliate link, okay? So, I say this book, Technical
Analysis for Dummies, they click it, sends ’em to Amazon. Same thing with every
single one of these links, and I have pricing links
as well, right here. They all send ’em to Amazon, okay. Okay, the next thing is, I’m
not gonna teach you on this, because it’s so vast, but it’s
called Off Page SEO, okay? Once you’ve written an article, and you’ve included your affiliate links, and it’s a good article, and
you’ve got everything set up, and Google, it’s very clear to Google what your article is about,
you’re still probably not gonna rank in the beginning. You’re gonna need to do Off Page SEO, which is kind of a vast world. Tons of things you can do, you need to get links from other sites, and you need to get
social things goin’ on, and you need to get all kinds of things goin’ on on the internet, so
Google likes your website, basically, and likes that page, okay, and thinks that people
will also like that page. So, that’s Off Page, and
we’re not gonna talk about it, but that’s the last step in
kind of what you do here. And then, you get to the
point where people Google best technical analysis books, and you can see right
there, at spot number two, that’s the article,
Beginning Stock Trader, Best Technical Analysis Books. ‘Kay, and there’s my article, and this, I get about four, five
hundred people a month that come to this
article, and a very large number of them go buy a book because there’s tons of
different options for ’em, and they can click through, and even if they don’t buy my book, once they click to Amazon and buy anything for 24 hours, I get the commission for it. So, even if they go buy a
mop or somethin’ like that. ‘Kay, so you can look at another article I did the exact same thing on. One of the keywords I found was people were looking for
the best stock brokers, the best online stock brokers, and you can see that I built
it out into a bigger phrase, Best Online Stock Brokers
For Beginners, ‘kay, so I knew that it’s a really
hard niche, stock market, so I honed in on the Best Online Stock Brokers For Beginners,
a very, very specific thing, and that’s how I was able
to rank for this one. I think I just hit the
first page a while back, and kinda movin’ up right now. It’s a very hard keyword to go for. Anyway, I built out this huge page, I have this huge thing where
I talk about stock brokers, I talk about what you need to look for, and then I review all these
different brokers, okay. What I’m trying to do is I’m
trying to make a long page that Google sees as tons
of relevant content, and then, also, just a very useful page that people can come and there’s a table, and they can do quick
comparisons, and as you can see, I’ve signed up for multiple
affiliate programs. So, pretty much, my page can
offer anyone a link, right? You want somebody not to go there, see one thing and back out, you want ’em to go there and say, oh, this page has everything I need, I just need to figure out
which one I need to use. I can click this affiliate
link or this affiliate link, or this affiliate link, and they’ll click one of your affiliate links, so, that’s kinda how you wanna do that. And that’s how you affiliate
market with a blog, you just pump out posts like this, okay, and you’re gonna have
to do your own research on how to do Off Page
SEO ’cause like I said, it just doesn’t fit in this video, but, conceptually, that’s
exactly what we’re doing here. So, thanks for watching,
this is Buildapreneur, and I mentioned there was gonna
be a free course at the end, let me talk about it real quick. So, I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for many years, it’s how I
make my full-time income. I work from home, and I have
created a fairly comprehensive, free course that shows you
how to do affiliate marketing, not only with a blog, but with all kinds of
different things, okay. Really, how to become an
affiliate marketer full-time, and really, really succeed in the long run as an affiliate marketer. So, there’s a link down below. All you’re gonna do is click that, it’ll actually send you to a free page, you put in an email address, and yes, I do require an email address, and you can get access to

you can connect with, and all kinds of fun things. So, go ahead and head down to there, click subscribe if you learned something, and we’ll go from there. (bold music)


  1. Excellent video again. Did you mention Amazon price comparison on your site? Don't they frown on having prices outside their own site, or is my understanding incorrect?

  2. Hey just wanted to let you know that the pop up for "keyword tool pro" is not clickable. Thank you for the great videos, keep it up man!

  3. I’m willing to learn more, I’ll go to your course very soon! Just finished the video!
