Expert Affiliate Kickstart Training Step 6: The Traffic Funnel

So now we have created our affiliate marketing website. So I guess we just sit and wait for someone to find us on Google?

Nope! We are going to learn about what I call the Traffic Funnel.

Start Here First

Before we get the Traffic Funnel up and running, let’s make sure our website is squared away.

At this point, you should have already set up your website with content and your Profit Strategy. You will want to now make sure you have tested out your website’s affiliate links.

There is nothing more frustrating than having your website up and running only to realize one of your affiliate links is broken!

Go to your website as a visitor, or have someone else go, and double check that each of your affiliate links is pointing to the correct destination. You can also use a WordPress plugin like Broken Link Checker to monitor your website for broken links.

After all, your links are what’s going to get you paid!

Traffic Funnel – Part 1

One of the most effective ways to drive traffic to your website is to use backlinks. Backlinks are simply links from other websites or sources on the internet that point to your website.

The reason why this is important is Google favors websites that show authority. The reasoning is if other websites link to your website, then your website must be great or full of great content. Theoretically.

Our goal is to use this to our advantage by choosing authoritative websites ourselves to place our website link on. Not only will this add weight to our SEO, but will also provide us other means to get our content indexed in search engines.

If none of this is really making sense, it’s ok. The process is simple, and you will begin to see how this can be a powerful tool to drive constant traffic to your affiliate websites.

The Traffic Funnel strategy I am going to show you typically costs folks hundreds (sometimes thousands!) of dollars to learn. This stuff is legit and works.

Now let’s take a look at The Traffic Funnel:
