Got Questions About Affiliate Marketing? Get Them Answered by the Experts

By Daniel Scocco

Affiliate marketing is certainly one of the most profitable online business models, but most people have many doubts regarding how it works, how to get started with it and so on. Thinking about that I decided to run a “bash interview” on the affiliate marketing topic. If things work out well I will repeat this idea with new topics in the future (e.g., SEO, email marketing and so on).

Basically you can ask any question you want about affiliate marketing, and we’ll try to answer them in a single post. I say “we” because I invited three friends of mine to participate as well, so you guys will actually get three answers for each question.

The first friend is Zac Johnson, a super affiliate whom I trust a lot (in fact he is the affiliate marketing mentor on OnlineProfits.com as well). The second one is Shawn Collins, one of the most respected affiliate marketers around and founder of the Affiliate Summit conference. The last one is Jonathan Volk, another super affiliate who generates millions of dollars every year. These guys know affiliate marketing inside out, so make use of this opportunity.

You can ask any number of questions you want. Just write them as a comment below. The answers will be published in a single post next week or the following.

    Seems like all the questions I had are already asked, but still wanted to add that I think this is a great idea!

    Talk about an all star list of people to answer questions. I have several.

    1) From what I can tell, many of the super affiliate use some form of PPC marketing. Where do you send the people who click on your ads? Product reviews? Newsletter signup? etc…

    2) What are some ways to increase your quality score for PPC ads? I noticed that my quality score have fluctuated up and down a lot.

    3) Other than product reviews, what other methods do you recommend for promoting products?

    4) Do you buy/try all the products you recommend? Do you normally get paid for the reveiw, free trials, or do you buy them yourself to try them?

    5) I’ve noticed many sites have some sort of “gravity” rating. Do you think it’s better to promote products with high or low gravity?

    Thanks for taking time to answer our questions!

    Hi Daniel!

    I think my questions have been asked. Several times, it seems.

    Basically, I have not considered remuneration from my blog, sice I write because I enjoy it. As a result, all of this topic is new to me, and I am content to wait and read the answers.

    I appreciate this service that you are providing! I follow you daily, and this is yet another example of your outstanding contributions to the blogging community. Thank you!

    Hello Daniel 🙂
    My question is whether to have do-follow or no-follow blog when we are using affiliates, how will it affect our search engine rankings or how to deal with it ???
    Thanks 🙂 🙂

    Hi,

    Question from a new affiliate marketer- in light of the recent Google bloodbath, does it make more sense for me to structure my business model going forward using only Yahoo, MSN, Social Media etc and just not even bother with Google?
