More on what to sell in Affiliate Marketing
How to sell more in Affiliate Marketing
Wednesday, May 1, 2013
In my attempt to post 1 article per day for 100 consecutive days to increase online visibility, I fell short and had to stop at the 60th article because of some more important matters in school and at work. In my blogging hiatus, I rarely thought of my blog because of my busy schedule. The next opportunity I had to open my Google analytics account at around mid April, I was surprised at what I saw. The numbers began to rise consistently from my last post on February 8. As expected, the days that followed February 8 had a decrease in visitors but in the days that followed, the numbers began to grow. Here is a diagram to summarize the visits by month:
- Posted a lot of articles
- Made some keyword research in those articles for search engine optimization purposes
- Submit site details to Google and Bing to be indexed
- 4. Placed ads from the GoDaddy affiliate program

Why choose Amazon Associates?
Wednesday, February 6, 2013

There are a lot of Filipino bloggers and if their blogs become successful, they are bound to monetize it. If you are a blogger and you have been thinking of monetizing your blog, you may already know about affiliate marketing. In simple terms, affiliate marketing is when you sell other people’s product through your website. The most popular affiliate marketing program in the world is Amazon Associates but is it the best program for your business?
Amazon is one of the best affiliate marketing programs around. They have been running for a while and they have a reputable name in the industry of online shopping. The best part about Amazon is that almost anything you want to buy online can be found there.
They also have regular Amazon coupons and promos that make them more attractive to online shoppers. If you have online bargain hunters as your audience, you can send them the coupons you find in Amazon through newsletters to help them find the best deals.
Should you sign up with Amazon affiliates?
If the majority of your blog or website visitors are from the United States, then you should. Sadly, for Asian bloggers, Amazon is not as popular here compared to the west. Don’t despair thought because there are other options to choose from.
Once you're signed up as an affiliate, you can also use links and give out free coupons for other affiliate programs for amazon like Amazon Wireless and Amazon Supply.
One of the most popular among the many online malls that are emerging today is ZALORA. If this is not your first time here at greedyben.com, you may have noticed that I have been using ZALORA banners on my online shopping articles. That’s because ZALORA and its sister website LAZADA are becoming really popular in Asia. You should note however that the items that are sold in ZALORA are limited. The stuff they sell are mostly related to fashion and fashion accessories.
Should you promote zalora?
Zalora is great because they cater to Filipinos and other Asian bargain hunting shoppers. They have Pinoy friendly payment systems and they offer free shipping which beats everybody else. If your target market is likely to buy from zalora then you should become a member.
Their affiliate program however is not as well polished as Amazon’s. Because Zalora uses Commission Junction to handle their affiliate marketing program, their links are limited to general links. You can’t link to a specific product you want unless they add links of product deals with discounts in the future.
Most of their links mostly lead to shopping categories such as Men’s and Women’s clothing. This will limit your affiliate marketing options because you will not be able to pitch specific products.

The commission rate is fixed at 8% per sale. As mentioned earlier, affiliate program is handled by commission junction, which means that, for non US publishers, your commission could only be sent through check which has a minimum cash out of $100. US publishers can use their bank transfer option.
HalloHallomall.com’s approach to affiliate marketing is a little different. They know Filipino buyers a little more because they allow publishers to post ads for them in facebook. Even if you don’t own a blog or a website you can advertise for HalloHallomall through your facebook account. There are also banners available for those who own websites. There are no text links at the moment but there may be some in the future.

Online shopping is convenient and easy but it also has some drawbacks. If you are not careful in online shopping, you can actually lose money unnecessarily. The worst part is you will not know that you’ve been scammed until the credit card bills arrived. Of course most of it you can get back if you call your credit card company but it’ll be a waste of your time; so much for convenience.
Improve your PC’s security
Don’t use other people’s computer in making a transaction
Another situation where your online information could be hacked is when you are connected to a public network where many other users are connected to. Firesheep may not function well in updated browsers, but it won’t be long before similar software will show up.

Stick with trusted online wallets
Never buy online without reading reviews of the product and the seller
Reviews and comments about a product will give you a good picture of the satisfaction ratings of the previous customers towards a product or a seller. Not all reviews though, could be trusted. Some reviews are commissioned by the sellers to increase the possibility of a sale. One way of knowing if a review is paid is if it has nothing bad to say about the products, services or the sellers.
Always hunt for coupons in the blogs and websites you visit
If you are looking for online coupons, there are other names for it like promo codes, or discount codes that you can use in your query. These promo codes will help you get great deals and let you save a lot. Two of the most popular websites that regularly have coupons are GoDaddy and Amazon.
