How to Google For Business [A Strategic Guide to Affiliate Marketing]

How to google for business - A strategic guide to affiliate marketingWelcome to this strategic guide to AFFILIATE MARKETING and how to Google For Business.

Just Google it!

A common phrase I’m sure you are all aware of but are you fully aware of just how much Google can help you?

Google takes around 90% of the search engine market with close to 4.1 BILLION users. and with over 7 BILLION Google searches every single day you would think that we all know how to Just Google It, right?

So, wouldn’t it be cool if we could find out what those internet users were searching for and make a ton of money? Interested?

Affiliate marketing and the 4 simple steps

It all starts with an Interest, Niche or Sub-Niche

Before we get started

[You will notice the term “KEYWORD” used extensively and this will all become apparent further into this post, so bear with me]


A  niche is a term used to identify GROUPS of things that are related and if you need some clarity then check out this article I wrote.

A niche can be anything, but it helps if you have an interest in it, such as maybe a hobby. Of course, you don’t have to, but it will make building your business so much more interesting.

It is important to know that the BILLIONS of keywords that people are keying into the GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE have the potential to become a NICHE or SUB NICHE.

Before we decide on a NICHE which is what your business is going to be about, we need to check that the NICHE isn’t too BROAD and that there is enough interest…

By BROAD, I mean…

Health, Dieting, Electronics, Toys, Sport, Wealth, Fashion and so on…

These are termed as broad because these are the top-level niches. this is where all the “Big Boys” do all their marketing. Guess what? We don’t have the money to compete at this level.

So…

…we concentrate on a sub-niche or micro-niche where the competition isn’t so great but enough for us to earn a living from.


For this article, we shall be focusing on DRONES as our Niche!

DRONES is a sub-niche of “TOYS” and “ELECTRONICS” depending on the level and cost, but…

DOES OUR NICHE HAVE ENOUGH INTEREST FOR US TO MAKE ANY MONEY FROM?

Jaaxy - Drones

This is a snippet from the Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool which is an essential tool that I use to determine what people are searching for and whether there is money to be made there.

As you can see by the results for the keyword “Drones”

There are approximately 38678 monthly GOOGLE searches for that particular keyword. A pretty popular niche and one we could use!


There is Nothing that you can’t find in GOOGLE!

Just enter your search term or keyword into the Google Search Engine and hit the enter key, and instantly “like Magic” the results are there in front of you. Just think how long this would have taken you pre-internet!

Google even tries to help us by trying to predict what we are looking for by displaying popular “KEYWORDS” that people like ourselves are searching with by using…

GOOGLE INSTANT…

…and whether you have noticed this or just taken it for granted, it is there to help you, and by using it correctly it can help by displaying additional KEYWORDS to EXPAND our research.

JUST CHECK IT OUT HERE

Whilst I am entering “Best drones”

…into the Google Search Engine a whole bunch of other keyword ideas instantly pop up that might be of interest.

Best drones to buy

  • best drones 2020
  • best drones to buy
  • best drones uk
  • best drones under 100
  • best drones under 200
  • best drones under 300
  • best drones with camera
  • best drones for kids
  • best drones under 500

These are all keywords that thousands of people are keying into the GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE, so straight away we have a bunch of KEYWORDS that we could potentially use.


We can even take this step further by using…

THE ALPHABET SOUP TECHNIQUE

What is The Alphabet Soup Technique?

In simplistic terms, this technique works in conjunction with the Google Instant function.

By entering a letter or letters before, after or in between words in the search engine, Google Instant will expand on your search criteria by displaying further keywords based on what people are searching for.

Like so…

BANG…Another bunch of keywords

  • best drones for beginners uk
  • best drones for photography
  • best drones for sale
  • best drones for filming
  • best drones for adults
  • best drones for gopro

All these keywords listed below are what people are searching in Google with regarding DRONES.

  • best drones 2020 *
  • best drones under 100
  • best drones under 200
  • best drones under 300
  • best drones with camera
  • best drones for kids
  • best drones under 500
  • best drones for photography
  • best drones for filming *
  • best drones for adults *
  • best drones for gopro

What started out as a basic search for drones as now expanded our research even further, so in around 10 minutes we have a bunch of keywords that we could research further.

The Alphabet Soup Technique combined with Google Instant and The Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool is a great way to expand our research and really highlight what a certain crowd of people are searching for.


Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool

A tool you shouldn’t be without, for determining what people are searching for. It’s easy to master, extremely fast and accurate and only returns the important data that is relevant for your business!


We’ll need a Website to Showcase our Niche and Turn our Passion into a Thriving Business

A website gives you an identity, a little piece of the internet. A place where everything about your Internet Business resides.SIteRubix

OK, I know what you are thinking, that building a website is going to take experience and technical know-how.

Well, maybe several years ago when something that can now take you seconds used to take weeks. Nowadays, it’s just a breeze and so much more enjoyable.

Take it from someone who comes from a software development background, in fact, if I am honest, my skills are now redundant.

I use the software platform called “SiteRubix”, which is a website management system that comes to you from Wealthy Affiliate and is Free to join.

Your professional website can literally be created within minutes rather than weeks!

With SiteRubix along with WordPress, you have the perfect combination, and with over 7000 free themes and 50000 plugins to choose from, for me, it was a no-brainer.


Learn HOW to ATTRACT VISITORS to our WEBSITE or we WON’T have a BUSINESS

Now we have our Website ready to go we need to get it out amongst the people who are searching for anything related to our niche, DRONES.

How would we do this?

As we mentioned earlier, people are searching for all sorts of advice and the people who are looking for advice on DRONES, are those people we are trying to help.

Remember, we need to help these people, not sell to them.

Trying to sell anything to a person you don’t know is going to be hard, almost impossible. People need to trust you and that takes time!

Writing Articles and Reviews…

Before you run a mile, writing articles and reviews is not that big a deal.

We all do research when we are searching in Google for information and we all send emails and messages. Those are the pre-requisites that are required.

What do we write about?

That’s easy, in this case, you write about DRONES, what else?

Our chosen niche and what our website and business are about.

Remember, the people searching for all sorts of information regarding DRONES, it’s our job to provide this information.

But, before we start writing anything there are a few things we need to take into consideration.

Earlier, when we were re-searching with Google Instant and the Alphabet Soup Technique, we produced a list of keywords that people are searching with, in the Google Search Engine.

We would use something like Jaaxy to determine the competition of those keywords and whether we could use them as the heading or title of our post or review.

I’d determined through Jaaxy that we could use 3 keywords from that list, which are laid out below.

Wealthy affiliate - best drones 2020“best drones 2020”

  • Avg (average number of searches that keyword receives in a month) = 679
  • Traffic (visits to your website if you rank on page 1) = 116
  • QSR (Number of websites using that exact keyword) = 81

Don’t know whether you noticed in the image above, but Jaaxy comes with the Alphabet Soup Technique. Just enter the keyword and Jaaxy goes through each letter in the alphabet automatically. Great eh?

The more posts and reviews you add to your website the more traffic you will get. Eventually, your website will be generating money 24/7/365.

OK, so you want to know just where to get your information from in order to write your posts and reviews?

Well, that’s easy as you can find everything you need for your content on the first page of the Google Results Query.

Just go ahead and type “Best drones 2020” into the Google Search Engine and hit enter, or click the link here.

How we get paid

Very important otherwise all that work would be for nothing!

Now we have discovered what we are going to write about and where to find our information, then what we need is to find…

AFFILIATE PROGRAMS…

These are programs that many businesses allow you as the Affiliate Marketer to join for FREE.

There are literally thousands of these programs covering literally everything.

By promoting products through the various Affiliate Programs, this is where you would make a commission.

Commission rates vary from company to company.

From 1% all the way up to around 85%

How to Find Affiliate Programs

Just type…Drone affiliate programs

…into the Google Search Engine and press enter or click here


All your hard work is now rewarded by way of Commissions on the Sale of Products and Services Sold to your Customer or Subscriber 

Any commissions will be paid by the company who’s responsible for the Affiliate Program that you joined.

A point to remember is that you don’t handle…

  • Stocks
  • Orders
  • Delivery
  • Returns

Everything is handled through the Affiliate Program link that is unique to only your business.


So, what do you think, Interested?

Everything you see in this post is within everybody’s grasp and such a straight forward and simple business model.

What we have covered here…

  • What a niche is and how to find one
  • Google instant
  • Alphabet Soup Technique
  • Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool
  • Keyword Research
  • Websites and where you can create a beautiful site in minutes
  • Writing Content and where to get your information from
  • Affiliate Programs and where to find them
  • Wealthy Affiliate and the best affiliate marketing training available
  • Free verses Premium Membership comparison

But, How Long Will it Take Before I see some results?

That’s up to each individual and how much you dedicate to your business.

Most people have jobs and families to consider in which case the amount of time that you could dedicate will be less than someone who isn’t holding a job down and doesn’t have a family to support.

Many see results in the first months and many it takes longer.

Dedication, persistence, hard work and the will to succeed, but that is the same for any business. You just have to want it!


Free and Premium Comparison

Just 2 options, free or premium, with NO UPSELLS. What you see is what you get!

I started as a free member much like everyone does and used that time to evaluate the training that was currently available.

You are under no obligation to upgrade and can stay as a free member indefinitely and use the training which is available. That isn’t a problem!

If you took advantage of the bonus within the first 7 days you would have access to the premium membership for $19. That would give you a full month to evaluate the entire platform, which is what many do, I included.

If you are serious about learning and building an online presence then you would upgrade to premium.

Premium @ $49 a month = $588

But…

…if you paid upfront that would bring down the cost to $348 which is a saving of 39%

Or…

If you joined for free and upgraded for the year before May 11th at 11:59 PM PST, then the yearly Premium would be cheaper still. 

This would be $299 per year for Premium, which equates to less than $0.83 per day!

Which is an overall saving of 49%

Comparable hosting would cost you at over $250 per month (or $2,000+ per year).

That’s the best training platform available online for less than $1 a day, and I can assure you nothing will compare.

Don’t take my word for it, try it out for free.

100% FREE with NO UPSELLS and NO CREDIT CARD details asked for! 

Remember I will have your back on the inside, but if you need to research this further then you can check out a review I wrote about Wealthy Affiliate here, which covers many things but the easiest route is to join for FREE and check it out for yourself.

Hey Guys and Gals, Great to meet you and I hope you enjoyed this post. I have to be honest with you, my journey into making money online started with several MLMs and they just didn’t do it for me. In fact, my experiences were so bad I nearly decided to call it a day. That was until I came across affiliate marketing and realized this was where I should have been in the first place. NO inventory, No recruiting, No fees, No cold calling, and this can be done anywhere in the world. All I had to do was find out what 4.5 billion were searching in Google for and with over 7 billion daily searches in Google shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

  1. Excellent walk thru of affiliate marketing of the Wealthy Affiliate program. Your use of an actual example in the “drone niche” are very helpful and hopefully sets you apart from the herd.
    Thanks for posting!

  2. Hey there,
    Lots of individuals do not understand this, but this was great information to me as I continue to learn about affiliate marketing by the day. Very well explained, very thorough, and well organized.

    1. Thank you, Ashraf, and glad you liked the post.

      Affiliate Marketing has to be probably the best business model to step into, but like anything new, it’s all about finding a great training platform that you can trust. For me, Wealthy Affiliate is that training platform and won’t be beaten at all. No BS there and what you see is exactly what you get.

      Thanks for your comments

  3. Hi Mick,

    Thanks for the great insight…specially regarding researching on Google about our niches. I am starting a blog, and it probably took me 2 days just to think of one blog post. I will make sure to use the alphabet soup technique in the future!

    1. Hey Fernanda, glad it helped. I remember when I started, you get caught up in the moment and then doubts crop in. It obviously depends on what your niche is all about.

      The alphabet soup technique is a great technique for highlighting keywords you probably wouldn’t have gone looking for.

      The Jaaxy Keyword ToolJaaxy Keyword Tool has all that included and saves so much time.

      Thanks for the comment

  4. Mick, while reading this article, I had an uh hah moment!! Thank you for that! Really great information that I will be utilizing immediately. Thank you for that. Great job!

  5. Loved the effort you put into researching your information by showing the basic google search vs Jaaxy and cut through the rubbish that you will make a fortune overnight. Cheers

  6. Hi Mick,

    I’m a fan of the “just Google it” method . I often use both the Google Instant and Alphabet Soup methods to ascertain exactly what people are looking for within a certain niche.

    Another method I tend to use is the “People Also Ask” section, typically 2 or 3 search results down, which gives me various ideas on common questions that people are asking around a certain niche or keyword.

    I’ve found that by clicking on a few of the questions even more common questions are revealed below and this is great for inspiration for additional articles and product reviews.

    As always, a very thorough and extremely interesting article.

    Thanks
    Partha

    1. Hey Partha, “People Also Ask” section, a very good point which I use all the time but didn’t mention it in the post.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting
