Everybody knows these websites that answer your questions that you had entered into google. It's the pages that poped up at the top in the google search.
These websites have often a thing in common.When you want to leave the page there is a pop-up window that opens and gives you an interesting offer. It can be something like that:
- Get the free e-book how to do this and that
- Free video how you can improve this
- With this free check-list you will manage to improve your business
These are just some examples of what you can see. Why are these websites doing that?
The power of the list
The concept here is to create a content website that is optimized for search engines on a specific subject. This website gets then a lot of organic traffic from google related to the subject in question.
Once you are on such a page, the website owner wants to give you a freebie that is interesting and related to the content. His objective is that you give your e-mail address and you join his e-mail list.
Once you are on this list, he has probably prepared a sequence of automated e-mails that you will get on a regular basis. These e-mails will slowly try to build your trust and interest. The final objective is to try to bring you to buy something or to sign up somewhere. This whole process is called a funnel and it can be fully automated.
Anything can be promoted in this funnel. It can be a product, referral links, affiliate links, anything that gives a direct or indirect income.
How I try to use affiliate marketing on the blockchain
I have developed an e-mail course called the 100'000 satoshis a week strategy. It's a course where people are taught how to use faucets and micro earning websites to collect some cryptocurrencies.
I've created an opt-in page where people can sign-up to this course for free: https://www.ref-hunters.ch/landing/100000satoshis/landing.html
Feel free to join my course to see how it all plays out
I've created this page with a service provided by Leadsleap. Leadsleap offers you everything that you need to get started. You can build the opt-in page. You can create the opt-in form that you will put on this page and it comes with a complete e-mail service. It's completely free to use. I'm using the premium version because it allows me to automate my emails.
After you sign up to my course the program sends an e-mail every day for 7 days. Each day my subscribers receive a new lesson where I present them a way to earn with faucets. In these lessons I include links to these programs that are actually referral links. If people sign up through these links, they become my referrals and I earn referral commissions paid by the website owner.
My funnel is fully automated and the target is to get new referrals for a whole set of programs.
Using content creation to drive traffic to my funnel
In order to drive traffic to this funnel, I put a link to this course at the end of all my posts that I produce on the blockchain or on services like publish0x. Each link is a kind of entrance door to my funnel. This generates new leads on a regular basis. I can also put the link to my opt-in page into forums or on social media websites. The more links I create, the more traffic I generate and the more leads I may get. This traffic is organic and doesn't cost me anything.
check ut the bottom of this post to see how I include the link into my posts
I believe this is a great way to build a business using the blockchain. If you are interested in using afffiliate marketing, I suggest you have a look at clicktrackprofit. This is a learning hub built by @jongolson and @blainjones. The great thing is that it teaches you affiliate marketing and also how to integrate it with blockchain technology. There are some ready made funnels that you can use and it's free to join.
