Hi everyone! Feeling a teeny bit under the weather today but am working anyway of course 🙂 Someone who is taking the PLR ATM course from the Angel Fund (forgot to tell y’all about that – happened last week, so thanks for your donations) had a question about how to get article titles when they type in a phrase like “affiliate marketing” into the Google keyword tool and they all basically look like they want to know “what is affiliate marketing. ”
So I typed it in myself and I wanted to share the lesson with y’all. While it might look from the start like the phrases are all alike, there are subtle differences that will allow you to create different slants for your articles. Now in PLR ATM I tell you that your keyword phrase can be the entire title, but it doesn’t have to be at all! You can add words or turn it into an entire sentence.
Look what I would create for a pack on affiliate marketing when I found several different keyword phrases in the tool:
what is affiliate marketing – would explain the concept of you being an affiliate for a tangible or digital store, how you get paid when you promote, etc.
affiliate marketing how to (guide) – steps for being an affiliate like 1. find a product to promote (what to evaluate about it), 2. write up reviews 3. put them on article directories or blog, etc. (The guide in parenthesis is the word I would add to the title)
affiliate marketing programs – a run down of the different ones – clicbank paydotcom, commission junction, share a sale, amazon, etc.
affiliate marketing software – cover some software out there…like WP Robot
affiliate marketing money – whats possible? how to tweak conversions for more money? how to add on promotions for increased income?
affiliate marketing tips – some dos and don’ts like don’t get your account banned for breaking the rules, do build a list even as an affiliate, etc.
So yes, basically all the phrases want to know how it works (except the software one) but you have to know or educate yourself enough about the topic to be able to see various slants you could use for the articles. Let’s look at it another way. Let’s take ONE keyword phrase: “what is affiliate marketing” and let me show you how to answer that five different ways.
what is affiliate marketing? It’s a way to leave your job and be a work at home parent, discussing all the perks of being your own boss.
what is affiliate marketing? It’s a way to grow financial stability in your life, discussing all of the monetary benefits of promoting for someone else, like no product creation overhead – promotion only.
what is affiliate marketing? It’s a way to break into online sales without any expertise, since that burden is shouldered by the product creator. All you have to do is have good reviewing skills, and explain how to size up a product.
what is affiliate marketing? It’s a way to conduct research on what your target audience responds to. By promoting as an affiliate, you’ll see what type of sales copy converts, which slant of a topic the audience responds to best, which ones get the most refunds, and then you can break into the niche as a product creator with a better understanding of your niche and audience.
what is affiliate marketing? It’s a way to earn prizes and extra perks online. Talk about the affiliate launch prizes – cash, iPads, etc. Discuss how when you get to be known as a top affiliate, you get invited to promote FIRST – before average affiliates, so you get to rake in more money.
So just because a search took returns similar words, it doesn’t mean your slants have to be identical. I hope this helps!
