Know The 4 Elements Of A Successful Video Marketing Strategy

...

Sometimes it can be hard to understand exactly where to start when you wanna make really great stuff. You wanna remain consistent, and ultimately, you wanna get results. But just because it’s hard now, doesn’t mean it always has to be.

Why it’s so important to have a video editorial calendar, how to write really awesome calls-to-action. And finally, how to use a pre-production checklist. So let’s get straight into it. The fact is, we all have very short attention spans, especially when we’re hanging out on YouTube.

And so, we need to be very conscious of that first 10 to 15 seconds of our video and really grab the viewers attention right out of the gate.

TubeBuddy and Hey.com did a study in which they found that simply by including the word You in your intro, you can increase views by over 97%. And this just shows us that viewers want content that they feel like was tailored and truly meant for them.

So how do we create this vibe?

Well, I’ve got a really easy method you can start to use today. It’s called the APP method. It’s an acronym and it stands for Agree, Promise and Preview. During the agree stage, you’re gonna make a statement that the viewer might be able to agree with. Next, during the promise stage, you’re gonna promise them a solution to their problem.

Finally, during the preview stage, you’re gonna give them a sense for how you plan to deliver that content. So, do you think that the APP method would work? Well, let’s go back to the beginning of this video and see if it worked on you. Okay so, it can be tough to get started with video. In this video, I wanna show you four of the most important elements of a video marketing strategy and you’re gonna know how to start to make really great content today.

Number two is setting up a video editorial calendar and actually sticking to it.

The thing is, schedules are important. They just make the process easier and it helps keep everybody accountable within the production process. I like to say that what’s important gets scheduled and what’s scheduled, usually gets completed. This is also gonna make it easier for you to remain consistent in your production.

And as you create more videos, you’ll inherently make better content. I found that the companies that are most successful with video marketing, and the ones who create the best content and most consistent content are the ones who have a calendar and have someone who enforces the deadlines. To make things easier, I’ve got a template you can download in the description below.

It’s gonna help you prioritize all of your content and track it through production. Our third point is having clear and aligned calls-to-action.

So once you’ve come up with a valuable content offering, let’s say, an ebook or an assessment or consultation, you know how the destination where you want to get the viewer. So you’re gonna have to build a bridge now between your destination and the content that the viewer is watching right now. Knowing this ahead of time is gonna help you add this to your script and also add context when it’s needed. If you’re uploading a video to YouTube, you’re gonna say, click in the link in the description below or click a card or something like that.

Whereas if you’re uploading on LinkedIn, you might say, click the link in the comments or click the link in the post.

Knowing these things ahead of time, helps you create really relevant calls-to-action depending on where your video is going. The bottom line is, if you don’t know what you want the viewer to do after they’re done watching, then they’re definitely not gonna know. So make sure you come up with the calls-to-action ahead of time, work them into your script at the time that makes sense and your videos will just become better at converting leads. Our fourth and final point is using a pre-production checklist to start every video project. If you’re gonna make an effective video, you’re gonna have to know who you’re talking to, what problems they’re experiencing right now and how you plan to position your content to help them solve that problem.

You’re also gonna have to know how they’re even gonna find your video. So use a checklist that includes traits of your viewer, what your major goal is, what verbal or onscreen calls-to-action you need to include in your video, and then some basic keyword research.

This is gonna make the entire video production process easier on your and your team. And ultimately the viewer is gonna start to see that these videos were made specifically for them to address a specific problem. So they’re gonna start to see more value in the content you produce.

If you’d like to download our pre-production checklist template, you can click the link in the description below and go and download that.

But in closing, in order for you to make highly effective videos, you’re gonna need to determine what highly effective actually means for every piece of content. Establish a goal ahead of time, is this video meant to get more subscribers to our YouTube channel? Is it meant to get more likes on Facebook? Meant to drive leads to a certain landing page?

Meant to get more visits to our store front? If you know ahead of time exactly what the video is supposed to achieve, you’ll be inherently more effective because you’ll be able to address that goal directly in the video.

4 Best Affiliate Marketing Tools for Affiliate Marketing Success 2022

...

Affiliate Marketing is easy. You choose a profitable affiliate product to promote, you sign up for the affiliate program and grab your affiliate tracking URL, then you start affiliate promotion so that you can start earning the affiliate commission. But there are certainly some affiliate marketing tools that make affiliate marketing easy. In this video, you’ll learn about the best affiliate marketing tools.

In this article, you’ll learn about some of the must-have tools for affiliate marketing. In fact, if you are serious about affiliate marketing, then you must watch this video until the end because having some of the best affiliate marketing tools can definitely help you achieve great success at Affiliate Marketing.

Tools that you need for Affiliate Marketing

1. Domain name. Most affiliate marketing beginners would start without a website or domain name. They usually copy and paste affiliate links everywhere for affiliate promotion. The problem with that is affiliate links look ugly and unless you have your own domain name or a website, people don’t take you seriously.

Most people would consider you as a spammer and no one will buy from you. So you’ll find it really tough to get affiliate sales. If you are serious about your business, then you must have your own website or at least your own domain name. That way you can share your domain URL rather than direct affiliate tracking URLs. Alright!

2. Having some kind of URL Shortener or affiliate link cloaking plugin. In case you don’t know, what affiliate link cloaking plugin basically does is: It shortens any ugly looking long affiliate tracking URLs into short URL which is easy to remember and looks clean as well. For example, I have this long-form ugly looking affiliate link and I can simply turn this into a pretty looking URL like this which looks clean as well as easy to memorize.

I use the Pretty Links WordPress plugin to make pretty links directly from WordPress dashboard. However, if you don’t have a WordPress site, you may use a URL shortener like Switchy which I use for advanced features like Facebook pixel retargeting, based on clicks. Use whatever you like but don’t ever post long-form ugly looking affiliate links.

3. Having an email marketing software or some kind of autoresponder. You might already be knowing that email marketing is the best way to sell affiliate products and earn a huge affiliate commission. If you want to succeed at affiliate marketing, you need to have an email marketing software so that you may start building your email list. undergroundaffiliatesystem

Because any kind of traffic or audience is not your own until or unless you take them to your email list. Once you turn your traffic or online audience into your email subscribers, the magic starts happening. Then, you can follow up with them, make an offer in their inbox, and sell affiliate product whenever you wish.

If you do any form of online business, you need to start building your email list from the first day. And for that, you’ll need an email marketing tool. If you are a complete beginner and want to learn more about building your email list from scratch, then you should check out the email marketing webinar link in the video description below.

4. Having a lead capture page or sales funnel. One of the biggest mistake affiliate marketing beginners make is: they send traffic directly to affiliate product links which is good as they want more affiliate sales. But you know what? A large percentage of people who visit your affiliate link will not buy on the first visit.

That’s why you need a lead capture page or a sales funnel so that you can capture their contact details and sell them later.

Also, having a sales funnel can help you increase your affiliate conversions. I use UNDERGROUND AFFILIATE SYSTEM which is a drag and drop software for creating high converting sales funnels.

Digital Marketing Destroys Traditional Marketing

...

There are three reasons why digital marketing destroys traditional marketing, now remember back in the old days when I was doing traditional marketing. Now for some of the young guys watching this, you have no clue what I’m talking about. I’m talking about good old newspaper. Yes, we were running display ads.

And also I’m talking about like broadcast fax. No email, fax machine, but that’s how we used to do advertising and marketing before digital, before internet comes along. I think a lot of us take it for granted compared to what we have today compared to back then. Let me share with you the three reasons or what I call the three T’s why digital marketing is far superior than traditional marketing. First one is targeting, now imagine traditional marketing let’s say you’re driving on the highway you see these huge massive billboard right advertising certain things you see those in Vegas.

They still have those which is fine but it’s more like brand awareness but that’s traditional advertising a billboard you can’t really target who is going to see that billboard. You just write there, if someone sees it good, if someone doesn’t see it you don’t really know but with digital marketing with online you can precisely target exactly who do you want seeing your offer, seeing your website, seeing your business or seeing your bundle. You can choose example with Google AdWords, you can target the keywords that they’re searching, you know the buyer intent and you can put your message right in front of there.

So that when they search the keyword they will find you or with Facebook you can also their precisely target exactly who you want, what are the interest, what’s that, that profile that you are targeting so you could target very precisely, exactly who do you want for your customers or for your offer that you cannot do with traditional marketing.

When we were doing direct mail, we can target a little bit, mean we can rent a list of potential buyers, you can we can send out those direct mail pieces, but it’s not very targeted.

And we don’t really know what happens, right. In the good old days, direct mail, we have a term called A-pile B-pile, meaning that people saw the the mail right next to the trash can, the garbage can, right where they know, okay, this is an ad, this is a flyer, this is something that doesn’t interest me, it goes in the trash can we call that the B-pile. The A-pile are all the personal letters, right, it’d be letters from someone that you know, or maybe statements and credit card statements and bills those will make it to the A-pile, as a marketer back then, when we were doing direct mail. The first goal is not to get people to buy, the first goal is to get people to make sure they don’t throw away our stuff, right? Make sure we make it to the A-pile.

So now with digital marketing, you don’t need to do that anymore. You can put your offer your product, your service in front of precise exactly who you want, when you want it, where you want it. You can choose country, you can choose demographics, you can choose psychographics, extremely, extremely powerful. Number two, the second T is tracking, not just that. So with direct mail, we can kind of track.

Okay, we send out 1000 letters, we send out 5000 letters, we send out 10,000 letters, we kind of roughly know that okay, out of the 10,000 letters we got so many order forms back.

Back then, that’s what we how we used to do it. They actually said people send back an order form or send back the money or call a phone number to to buy something but still not very precise with internet marketing. Oh my goodness! With digital marketing, you can track exactly what happens.

Where that buyer comes from, where that customer comes from.

You can even track their journey. Maybe they first saw this particular video and then they’ve opt into this particular offer and then they didn’t buy and when we run a retargeting ads and then they bought in this period of time or they bought because they saw email number four in your email sequence. You cannot do that with traditional marketing you could only do that with digital marketing that’s powerful and number three and that is the third T and that is tweaking. Now think about back then, if I’m doing a big massive billboard and if say, you know what, I don’t like the billboard I’m changing my message or now I have a different offer.

What do I have to do? I’ve got to take out the whole damn Billboard. I got to replace everything at the reprint everything, with digital, if there’s an ad that I’m running, I don’t like I can change it just like that. I can split test different ads at the same time have an A/B testing or been marketing call the A/B testing we can tweak different things or my webpage I’m testing on a different guarantee a different price point.

Run traffic to it and I will know.

Now traditional advertising, anything that we do, there’s a huge delay in terms of time, that gap that makes it very, very expensive and very costly. So the benefits of marketing online and all those things you can target, you can track and you can also tweak very quickly to get better result, that’s the upside. But there’s a downside, the downside is everybody could do the same thing. So the marketplace is getting way more sophisticated, your competitors, they are getting more sophisticated, there are more ways for them to compete with you, anybody.

I don’t care how big you are.

You could be running a pretty big company, it doesn’t matter. A 17 year old kid living in a basement could compete with you. So knowing that yes, with the technology digital marketing has so many advantages. At the same time, knowing that it changes all the time that you have to do more to keep up the pace to have that leading edge and always say if you not the lead doc. The view is always the same.

I don’t care if you’re still working a job. I don’t care if you have a business that’s doing sort of model level, I’m certain you’ll learn something from it. With that said I got to get back to my game.

Why You Should Stop Studying Digital Marketing | What To Do Instead

...

Studying digital marketing, will help you learn more, but it doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get more traffic, sadly. You should stop studying digital marketing, if, and only if you’ve been studying it for six plus months to a year or even more, you haven’t done any actual campaigns for your clients or yourself.

You gave up after your failed campaign and if you haven’t even implemented any of the things you’ve learned. Because you could be learning a lot about digital marketing. So even if you tried one campaign or two campaigns on, let’s say SEO, but you also learned about social media marketing, paid advertising, email marketing, conversion rate optimization, and you haven’t tested out any of the other stuff, you need to go and start doing. So step one, start by focusing on one marketing discipline.

That discipline could be paid traffic, social media, SEO, content, marketing, copywriting, email marketing, conversion optimization.

It doesn’t matter what it is. Two, find a client that has a product or service in that niche that is easier to make success and work for free or at very low costs. You may not want to work for free, but trust me the experiences while worth it. This typically means products or services with high ticket value or higher retention, right. Those are easier to optimize.

The goal is to find a product or service that has a hungry market and is underserved and ideally a big TAM. TAM stands for total addressable market. The bigger the market, the easier it is. Everyone says the riches in the niches, you don’t build big companies in the niches. It’s easier to take 1% of a hundred billion dollar market, than it is for you to take a hundred percent of a $1 billion market.

You can also do that for yourself, if you have a product or service that needs marketing, right.

You don’t have to do it for someone else. It could be for yourself. The next step find successful products and services that are in the same vertical, and reverse engineer their success. What does their offer look like; pain points, needs, wants?

What does it address; their price points, guarantees, payments, conditions? What are their traffic channels that they’re leveraging? Right, what is the ones? Are they mainly using SEO, paid advertising? You can use Ubersuggest to check this out and see where people are getting their traffic from, as well as similar one.

Below, actually in the comments, tell me, what is your number one traffic source? Is it SEO? Is it paid advertising, Right? Respond, let me know. I’m always here to help.

And this data allows me to tailor the videos, so I can produce better content for you. What are the channels or the pay channels that they’re using? Try to see how they’re positioning their ad, and copy the elements from the imagery to their videos, to their landing pages. And that gets me into, do they have multiple landing pages for different audience segments? This will give you an indicator of the different groups of people that they’re targeting.

Now, if you’re not sure on how to figure out their landing pages or even their ads or the ad copy, check out Facebook’s Ad Library. Facebook’s big. Everyone’s on Facebook. You’ll be able to see what they’re running, and if they have a ton of engagement on those ads. Probably is working better than the ones that don’t have tons of engagement.

It’ll give you a direction of where you should go. It doesn’t mean if you copy them, you’ll be successful. It just gives you a rule of thumb on what direction you should go on.

The next step, create a minimal, viable campaign that works on some of the foundations that you’ve discovered in your competitive analysis. Use only one pay ade channel initially, or one SEO organic channel or conversion channel, depending on the business you’re working on.

Test different variations of your offer, your ads, your creative segmentation options. See which angle is the most successful and double down on it And create variations around the winning offer and angle and creative and see how you can improve it even further. Next step, find other products, services, and clients in the same niche that don’t compete with the first campaign that you’ve created, and apply what you’ve learned. Look, learning is great. My mom was a teacher.

I always believed in learning. My mom always told me, “The moment you stop learning is the day that you’re going to have your start of your downfall.” So knowledge is priceless.

And my mom always taught me that it’s more valuable than money. But here’s the thing, if you learn so much and you keep learning, and you never implement, you won’t understand the intricacies.

There’s always so much that you’ll learn by just doing that’s not taught through reading.

5 HUGE Digital Marketing Trends In 2022 | According To Expert

...

What trends dominated the internet over the past year and are only gonna get hotter in 2022?

Can you guess what it is?

Now let’s count down the five biggest digital marketing trends to watch out for in 2022, starting with number five and ending with the biggest one of them all.

Number five, less SEO and more value. So in my opinion, this isn’t so much of a marketing trend as it is a marketing fact. Sorry, not sorry. Over the last couple of years, there was a lot of focus placed on the importance of SEO and webpage optimization.

Make sure you’re optimizing your website or you won’t get any attention and you won’t get any sales. Now don’t come at me SEO peeps, (chuckles) because I will be the first one to tell you that, yes, if you can optimize your website, sales pages and blog posts, for search engine traffic without sacrificing the value of your content and messaging, then that is amazing, you should absolutely be doing that. But here’s the real kicker and what smart marketers already know. SEO is not, and will never be more important than the value you deliver.

So if the content and messaging you’re delivering is valuable in and of itself, that is the number one always, always, always most important thing. And SEO and optimization are secondary. And this is even more true now than ever before, because here’s the thing, right? Those pesky algorithms we know and love to hate are getting smarter and they change all the damn time, which means it’s getting really hard to trick or hack the algorithm and search engines in your favor. So instead of racking your brain on what keyword density will land you on page one of Google, or playing a game of cat and mouse with the algorithm, focus instead on what really matters, your customers and the value they walk away with after visiting your website, right?

Google is prioritizing quality authority content above all else, so this is truly the most important SEO tip of them all and it is a marketing trend that will never go out of style.

Number four, influencer marketing and user-generated content. So influencer and content marketing have been growing steadily for years. So again, this isn’t new per se, but it’s a trend that’s continuing to grow on an astronomical scale.

According to the IPA, no, not the beer, but the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising, after the pandemic hit, the advertising industry saw about a 20% decline, whereas influencer and content marketing enjoyed a 46% increase. I mean, consider this for a second, right? Influencer marketing was only worth approximately $1.7 billion in 2017 only, (chuckles) but in 2021, influencer marketing racked in approximately $10.24 billion.

That rate of growth is insane and it is the proof you need that this stuff works, but why does it work so much better than traditional paid advertising? Well, for the simple fact that people trust people, way more than they trust advertisements run by big companies. It’s the good old fashioned word of mouth concept tailored for the 21st century of online connection.

So seeing an influencer or just any other human in general, using a real product in the real life and saying good things about it, is one of the best ways to showcase social proof for any brand or business today. So this year, listen up, take full advantage of influencer marketing and user-generated content anywhere and everywhere you can.

And don’t sweat it, your influencers don’t need to have a following of a 100K in order to be effective. Remember, that virtually any video testimonial you can get from a real life customer, works just as well. So consider asking some of your best customers or some of your clients’ best customers or previous students, for video reviews or testimonials. This is something I do a lot at the Posse and my students are happy to share their thoughts on video, or sometimes even create reels for my Instagram, like these ones here.

Another option is to invite your past customers to promote your product or service as an affiliate.

That way they feel incentivized to talk about and openly promote your products and services because they’ll get a little commission on the backend. The catch here though, is to remember that your affiliates and influencers need to be legit sources, you know, people who have actually taken your course or tried your product and loved it. People who are genuinely excited about promoting your product, will deliver the best results every single time.

Now on to trend number three on my list, LinkedIn is growing. Say what? I know, right? Maybe you already knew this, but LinkedIn has never really been one of the big guys when it comes to social media platforms, mostly because it’s geared towards a very specific market, professionals looking to connect with other professionals. But recently, LinkedIn has been seeing massive growth in it’s active users and platform engagement. Don’t believe me?

Just take a look at these stats. LinkedIn saw a 55% increase in conversations among connections in 2020. Content creation on LinkedIn increased 60% in 2020. And LinkedIn live streams increased by 437% in 2020. Even my very own LinkedIn newsletter, The Right Phrase Pays, saw amazing growth this past year, and I now have almost 75,000 subscribers.

That’s more than I have on my Instagram and Twitter combined. So with the rise of online freelancers combined with the new features LinkedIn has launched, this platform should absolutely be part of your marketing strategy in 2022.

Number two, online events and live video. Oh yeah, baby, making the list again this year, of course you knew I was gonna say this, is video.

This was actually my number one trend last year, and it makes the list again this year at number two and for damn good reason. Online events like webinars, masterclasses, and lives, are one of the most popular ways for people to connect with the brands and businesses they follow, no matter where in the world they are. Video and online events have been on the rise for years, and listen up, 2022 will be no exception. I know, I know this is probably a trend that will be hard for some of you to get behind, I mean, do we really have to put our faces on video to get ahead in this digital marketing age? Well, the data says, yes, you definitely should be showing your face in front of your audience if you wanna stay alive and thrive this year.

Video continues to be the most engaging form of online content. So in 2020, 96% of consumers increased their online video consumption.

Nine out of 10 viewers, that’s 90% of viewers, said they wanted to see more videos from brands and businesses. And it’s estimated that in 2022, the average person will spend 100 minutes per day watching video (chuckles). So copy might be queen and content might be king, but no matter which form of online marketing you’re conducting, video reigns supreme.

So now we’re moving on to the number one trend on my list. Can you guess what it is?

Number one is email, email, email. Remember that massive global server crash that happened back in October of 2021, that took down Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp, like for an entire day.

Yeah, for an entire day, businesses, brands, and marketers everywhere were completely disconnected from their online audiences and social followings.

Well, that server crash was a major eye-opener that many digital marketers needed. And that is this, you do not own your social audiences, which means that when a server crashes or worst case scenario, the platform just shuts down altogether, you lose all of those leads, all of those followers, all of those customers, all of those eyeballs, right? Yikes. But 2021 woke us up to the reality that email marketing is currently and always will be the single best way to market your brand or business, increase your revenue, and cash in on more conversions.

It is better than paid advertising. It is better than social media.

And it is better from organic traffic that you would get from SEO. But don’t just take my word for it.

Here are some stats to prove it. It is estimated that there are 4 billion active email users right now, and that number is projected to go up. Email marketing consistently delivers the highest ROI of all marketing channels, earning on average $42 for every dollar spent.

And if you don’t wanna do the math on that, that’s an ROI of 4200%. And according to MarketingSherpa, email is still the most preferred marketing channel that consumers want businesses to communicate with them through.

Yes, even for Millennials and Gen Zers, they prefer email to social media for brand to customer communication. And not only is email your consumer’s favorite way to communicate with you, but it should be your favorite too, because your list is yours, it belongs to you, it is an asset that you have in your business. So the number one marketing trend that you need to be paying attention to in 2022 and beyond is email marketing. You should be emailing your list on a regular and consistent basis. Now, if you wanna learn exactly how to write emails that sell, make sure to check out my email marketing program, Own The Inbox.

And that is all I have for you today, the five marketing trends you need to watch out for in 2022.

Make Your First $1,000 With Affiliate Marketing 2022 | Free Method, No Followers Needed

...

This method will work for anyone, even if you have a website or don’t have a website. Most people that do affiliate marketing face 2 main problems. You use various free methods to promote affiliate links and you don’t get clicks.

Even if you get clicks, you don’t get sales. Basically, no one buys from you. Do you have any of these problems? In this video, I am going to show you how you can fix that without spending any money on promoting affiliate products. There are 3 websites you need to use, to make this work.

You are going to use free traffic that will be interested in buying your affiliate product, so that you can actually make your first 1000 dollars with affiliate marketing. The method I show, will work with any affiliate product, but you need to follow the exact steps so you know how to do affiliate marketing without followers. Did you know that 89% of customers start their buying process in a search engine? If you don’t want to pay for ads there is another free way and I will explain that next.

The first step is to find the best buyer intent keywords for your affiliate product. Buyer intent keywords are search queries that show someone is actively looking to make a purchase. Once you know the buyer intent keywords that your ideal customers are using, you can start to target them with relevant content.

Let’s say, for example, you want to promote this clickbank affiliate product. You will earn 37 dollars on average with this product. Now, let’s do some simple math.

To make your first 1000 dollars using this affiliate marketing product, you will need about 27 sales. On average, let’s assume that the conversion rate to this website is about 1%. That means that if 100 people that are interested in this page, came to this website, out of that at least 1 person will buy. So if you can get 2700 people that are interested in this topic, you will be able to make your first 1000 dollars with affiliate marketing.

How are you going to find these people?

If you don’t want to go the paid ads for search engine results, the next best thing is to work with free content that naturally shows up on the first page.

There is a trick to do this and as mentioned this will work even if you don’t have a website. Follow these exact steps close. Next, you need to figure out what someone will enter into the search box when they are close to buying this product. Come up with a list of key phrases.

Let me use this phrase as an example to show you exactly how that works. With this website, you can get all the top questions people ask about the phrase that you choose. They offer a trial, so you can try it out. I will leave a link in the description below. Click on new document, add the phrase, it will give a set of questions related to this.

Next, you need to use these questions that people are searching for. I will show you how to auto generate high quality content for free, so that you can get your article on the first page and start making money with affiliate marketing. This is an online copywriting tool that uses artificial intelligence to write blog posts and many more content types.

It’s great for anyone who doesn’t want to spend time writing or needs help writing content. The best part is you can start for free.

As a new user you will get 10000 credits free and 5 days free trial. I have a link below in the description, you can use that and grab your free credits. Once you login, you will see this dashboard. You can generate various types of content. For this purpose select Long form assistant.

Next, select start from scratch. Paste the questions you got from the previous step. Mark all these as headings.

Add space between the questions and I will show how this online tool will auto generate high quality content. On the left hand side add your keyword, so that the content that is auto generate will be optimized to rank on the first page.

For the content description, paste the same questions. You can give any titles that you want. Article length, select as L. You will see that this is automatically generating content. Likewise, it will generate the entire article for you.

Once the article is ready, if you have your own website you can publish it there. If you don’t, here is a high ranking free website. It’s called medium. You can promote affiliate products, as mentioned in the policy, but you need to include it. If you search through you can find various affiliate products being promoted on medium.

If you want to make your first 1000 dollars with affiliate marketing, you need to publish multiple articles. As you saw from this video, it takes a few minutes to generate a good article. While this is a great free method to make money, the problem with this approach is that it will take a long time to appear on the first page. If you don’t want to wait, then I suggest using a paid option for affiliate marketing.

5 Steps For a Successful 2022 | Affiliate Marketing Tips 2022

...

What’s your number one challenge when it comes to affiliate marketing right now?

Tip number one, invest in you. If you ever have to choose between investing in equipment, or investing in you, always choose you. And why? Because, with a digital marketing training, you’re going to know what you’re doing and you’re gonna be able to pivot, adapt, overcome, change funnels, change business models and you’re going to be in the front line of change as the world is turning.

If not, you’re going to be left behind. So digital marketing training is tip number one. And I’m going to give you free workshops that are linked down below in the description of this video to get you started.

Tip number two is finding your niche. Ask yourself these questions: What am I passionate about? What is my expertise? And what demand in the market can I serve? A bonus tip for you is to use the free tool on TRENDS.GOOGLE.COM to do market research.

Tip number three is finding your target audience. Ask yourself, who am I going to serve? What’s their problem that I can solve? And a bonus tip is develop your why while you’re still small. Because it’s easier to turn around, change, and adapt, if you have a small audience compared to a large one.

What do you think is your audience? For example, young people moving to their first apartment. What challenges are they facing? How can you serve them and solve their problem? Or maybe parents with toddlers that have absolutely no time to cook, or maybe your target audience is motorcyclists of a certain motorcycle brand that love cruising around in Europe.

Whatever you do, find a specific target audience in that niche and start serving them. What’s your biggest ‘Aha!’ moment so far in this video? Put a comment down below.

Tip number 4, where does this audience hang out online? Because that’s where you want to be too. Is it TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube? Find the platform that they’re hanging out on, and start building your content there. Building your content, building trust. And if you’re growing organically, this is going to take a while.

If you have a paid marketing strategy and a budget, you can learn how to place ads on this platform and start marketing your content in your affiliate links with a budget.

But do remember that, influence comes before income. That’s a bonus tip as well. No matter if you’re growing organically or on a paid strategy, influence comes before income and learning the art of influence is part of digital marketing training. The first tip that I mentioned.

Tip number 5. Now that you have found your niche and your target audience and the platform that you’re going to go for the one strategy platform that you are going to start with, it’s time to grab a couple of affiliate links to get started already today. And these affiliate programs need, of course, to be in line with the niche, the audience that you found. I, for example, help you grow your influence and income online on YouTube by creating great videos. So, of course, I’m an affiliate for Tube Buddy, I am an affiliate for Vid IQ and for Canva, and also, of course, for the mentors, because I know the value of online marketing training.

Now, I hope you know what to do next in order to start affiliate marketing within the next year and start earning online. All the best. Good luck and See you on my next article.

Best Tips For Pitching Brands for the Holiday Season

...

The holiday season also referred to as Q4 is a time where brands  typically increase their marketing spend. For influencers and content creators this  is an amazing and often lucrative time to work with brands. So today we’re going to  be talking about my five top tips for pitching brands during Q4 so that you  can work with your dream brand partners and most importantly get paid to do it.

Here are the five top tips for pitching brands during  the holiday season.

Tip number one before we even start pitching, I think it’s important to  think about your goals and what you actually want out of this last quarter of the year so is there  a certain brand that you really want to work with. Do you want to do x number of campaigns or hit x  revenue target by setting a goal at the beginning and being super intentional about what you want  out of this quarter it’ll make the rest of this process so much easier and streamlined when you  actually go to pitch.

Tip number two after you’ve outlined your goals is to make a list of the  brands that you want to work with and I recommend breaking this down into three sections. The first  section that I recommend targeting is any of your previous brand partners.

If you’ve already worked  with someone it’s going to be much easier to sign them on as a repeat client versus going out and  getting a brand new brand or client to work with you.

So think about all of the brands that you’ve  worked with in this past year and even last holiday season and write them down on the list. The next section of this list is going to be all of the brands that you currently have some kind  of relationship with so maybe you’ve exchanged a few emails or DM’s maybe you’re on their PR list  or maybe you attended an event of theirs those are going to be warm leads. So you already have  somewhat of an established relationship with the brand ideally you’ve also probably tried  their products already and maybe have even created some organic content featuring those  products so put those down on their own section. And in the last section if you have a brand that  you have never talked to or worked with but that you really really want to collaborate with for Q4  put that in its own section two and I recommend trying to keep this section small as I believe  that you’ll have more success reaching out to brands that you already have some sort  of relationship or have already worked with then you will during Q4 to pitch to brand new people.  It’s not to say it can’t be done but Q4 is such a big deal for brands that they probably want to  narrow down their list of creators and only work with their top choices so a better time to get in  front of a new brand might be early next year but keep them on the list anyway and if you write an  amazing pitch you never know what can happen.

I am so curious to hear from you actually who would  be your dream brand partner this holiday season comment them down below and then don’t forget to  come back in January and let us know if you ended up working with that brand. Maybe we’ll manifest  something together.

Tip number three in your pitch email try as much as you possibly can to outline a  super specific idea brands get so busy during the holidays so the more direct  and clear you can be about how you’re envisioning your partnership to look the easier it will be for  a brand to quickly decide if it’s something they want to explore and move forward with or if it’s  something that they’re not able to pursue.

For example as a beauty content creator I know that  there are tons of brands that like to put out kind of little stocking stuffer beauty sets and so I  could suggest doing a post where I’m reaching into a stocking and pulling out the trio of lip glosses  or whatever the product is that they’re coming out with and just kind of paint the picture for them  of yes we do think these are stocking stuffers and it would be great to have imagery or even a video  like that.

So that being said when you’re doing your research I would also take this opportunity  to go back and look at last year scroll back on the brand’s instagram feed and look at what  types of products they were promoting or services if you’re working on service based brands during  the holiday season and ask them if they’re doing that again or pitch them an idea that is directly  related to what they’ve already done. You can also ask the brand to keep you posted on what  new things they have coming up but I feel like by talking about things that they’ve already done  and what’s worked for them in past years you’re just showing that you’re in the know that you’re  thoughtful and that you’ve done your research.

And speaking of scrolling back in Instagram feeds  that brings me to….

Tip number four which is when you reach out to the brand to share examples of  previous seasonal content specifically holiday content if you have it that you have created  this is an opportunity for you to show the brand your own personal style and how you  would approach a collaboration like this.

So you can send them any previous gift guides blog posts  Instagram posts anything along those lines and you can actually go back and easily organize them if you want. I actually have a guide on my Instagram account that’s just called Holiday  and so I can go send that link to a brand and say hey here’s 20 photo examples of what I’ve  done previously for the holidays and especially anything where I’m featuring a product or maybe  wearing a bag or anything especially along lines for me of fashion and beauty that would make sense  for a brand. I can kind of call that out and say I would love to do something similar or say here’s  what I’ve done already i would also take this as an opportunity to share your average. You know  reach engagement all of that kind of stuff during the holiday season because the biggest question  for a brand during this period of time will be is this a thing that we are going to get a return on. If we invest in so if they hire me to create an Instagram reel for them will they see a return on  their investment to pay me. Brands are going to be looking at that more than they normally are during  holiday season because there’s a lot at stake for them and they have a lot of money to play with. As  I’ve mentioned before, the easier you can make it for a brand to say yes to you the  better so be sure to include any relevant metrics from your previous holiday content or campaigns.

And for my fifth and final tip of the video i wanted to encourage you to in the sign off of  your pitch email to these brands just ask them how you can support them during the holiday season.

If  you aren’t able to work out a paid partnership for some reason it’s possible that you could get  invited to an event you could end up getting some cool products sent to you. Or maybe you can work  together on a gifted partnership if you want my full thoughts on gifted partnerships.

The way that I encouraged you to kind of curate  the list of brands that you want to reach out to by prioritizing first your previous brand partners. You would want these brands to know that they have your  support during the holiday season regardless of whether or not you end up getting paid. And so I  think just saying that goes a long way again if there’s something you can’t realistically make  work if they say a great way you can support us is by doing eight free posts on your Instagram.

You  can obviously say no but i just think it’s a nice way to frame it and show that you are here to be  in service to the brand to help share their products and their message with your audience. I  even said in a recent email to a brand that i wanted to reach out ahead of Q4  to see what is coming up.

For the brand in the last few months of the year i said I’d love to be kept  up to date on any new product launches or special holiday gift sets and you are going to stand out so much in comparison to people who are just firing off  random emails.

Branding Trends 2022

...

Let’s get into it! Wearing your heart on your sleeve has never been more important as consumers increasingly want to interact with brands that share their values. From sustainability to social justice, this trend is all about communicating your commitment to making positive change. Just look at Patagonia, a brand that dedicates a section of its website to talk about the steps the company is taking to minimize its impact.

Blog posts, videos, and statistics clearly explain Patagonia’s programs and the progress they are making, while a series of bold statements in white type against a black background reassure customers that the brand is authentic and trustworthy. From LGBTQ+ rights to gender equality, support the causes you care about and introduce them into your brand DNA with the design tools and templates in our Envato Elements Activism Collection. From customizable, ready-to-print posters and flyers to Instagram posts and stories, it’s easy to start spreading the word about the things your business cares about in real life and on social media.

For more on brand activism, check out the Content For Good segment in our Social Media Trends video linked in the description. It’s packed with helpful hints to ensure your feed always attracts attention.

There’s a time and a place for competing colors and clashing typography, but this isn’t it. Upholding the less-is-more mantra, minimalism is all about white space, muted palettes, and organic design. And the trend is growing in popularity with brands who want their logo and imagery to convey just how their products and services will make consumers feel.

Nu offers a masterclass in visual language with its two-tone branding and packaging, taking inspiration from the makeup company’s two highlighter products. One feature rose tones, the other features yellow tones, so it makes sense that dusty pink and sandy white tones take center stage in all their marketing material.

By keeping their branding natural, clean and luminous, Nu tells the consumer everything they need to know about its products. Allow your next branding assignment or personal project to revel in white space and natural imagery by taking a look at this Minimalism Collection that’s been specially curated by the Envato Elements Team. From business cards and magazine templates to customizable PowerPoint and Keynote presentations, these uncluttered and uncomplicated designs demonstrate that minimalism can still have maximum impact. Are you tossing up between the simplicity of minimalism or something with a bit more ‘pow’? Our Minimalism vs Maximalism blog post can help you find the style right for your brand.

You’ll find a link in the description below. Let us know in the comments which you prefer. And to see how minimalism is making waves when it comes to web design, check out our Web Design Trends video. Expect the unexpected as we rip up the traditional graphic design rulebook. This trend has its roots in the Anti-Design movement of the late 1960s and 1970s, which was a reaction to what some saw as Modernism’s quest for perfection.

A style that’s been revived today through the combined use of images, illustration, and typography, we’re seeing more and more brands make a statement with colliding elements, striking colors and distorted shapes. Like Up Banking, which completely subverts the stereotype of a financial institute as grey and boring with its sunset-red debit cards. Scrolling through its website, users are treated to a sense of 80s nostalgia, with its tropical neons, retro-inspired gifs and memes, and effortlessly cool icons – which are so laid back they are wearing sunglasses. Inject a sense of playfulness into your next project with this collection of characters that come in various poses and postures.

With their overlapping elements and disproportionate dimensions, this flat illustration pack is inspired by the odd bodies trend, which once again confirms that quirky is often better than conventional.

Similarly, this social media kit from Envato author dirtylinestudio promises to introduce some creative chaos into your Instagram feed. Featuring wavy text, images with inverted colors, ripped paper and crinkly plastic textures, use these 18 Photoshop styles to come up with posts that channel your inner punk. From odd bodies to geo abstract, find out more about the quirky illustration trends that are popping up in creative projects around the world in our round-up video. You’ll find a link in the description below. The German art school that gave its name to this design movement only ran for 14 years in the early 20th-century but it’s still influencing creativity today.

Attempting to close the gap between art and industry, we see this trend manifesting itself in geometric shapes, strong lines, and sharp corners. Bauhaus is minimal and modern and has a functional feel – which made it perfect when online collaboration platform UKO was deciding on its logo and visual identity.

The platform connects teams and streamlines workflows, and this is communicated by a series of bold shapes and the fine lines that connect them, which has the overall effect of creating a colorful conveyor belt. Immediately, the static and animated illustrations show us that this company is all about organizing, sharing, and problem-solving. Bring Bauhaus into your branding work with any of the items from our collection linked below that features patterns, posters, and typefaces, all of which have been inspired by the movement and are ideal for creating a range of creative content.

Similarly, these Bauhaus business card templates featuring asymmetrical tiles are both edgy and eye-catching, making them ideal for personal or professional branding projects.

Whatever era you want to engage with, our Retro Design Trends video will take you there. Watch as we move from 60s-inspired Pop Art and psychedelic design to the simple shapes and freeform typography of the 70s and onto instantly recognizable’s influences like science fiction and Club Tropicana. It seems the darling of social media feeds and web design is here to stay, as we turn our attention to gradients. It might sound obvious, but the reason color variations are so popular is because they are so versatile – with so many creative applications.

We’re seeing gradients used as photo overlays to connect images to a brand’s color palette, as a way of adding extra visual interest to words and sentences, and as subtle or standout backgrounds to illustrations. Giving gradients a leading role is Lithuanian confectioner Laroché, which wraps its chocolate creations in vibrant packaging that aims to visualize the unique taste experience of flavors like ruby, caramel, and bittersweet. Add a modern splash of color to your social media feed with ambient sunrise and sunset-themed Instagram posts and stories. It’s never been easier to get content out the door with these Photoshop templates for inspirational quotes, product announcements, and meet the team profiles. For many designers, the past continues to be a rich source of inspiration and many are stepping back in time to add a fresh spin to much-loved symbols and instantly recognizable icons.

Take the branding for this Manila-based bakery, which shares a 70s free love vibe with its peace signs, heart-shaped glasses, and ‘flour power’ stickers.

We’re also seeing elements from our recent history-making an appearance with pop culture references popping up in films, TV shows, marketing materials, and social media feeds. From high-school soap operas to handmade mixtapes, this Instagram pack unashamedly taps into a 90s aesthetic with its geometric shapes and clashing colors. Channel a sense of nostalgia with our round-up of the 90s graphic design trends that are still having an impact on audiences everywhere. From the distressed textures of grunge to the psychedelic swirls associated with rave culture, this blog post offers an inspiring trip down memory lane.

Welcome audiences into your world, invite interaction, and build communities with this trend that’s shaping up to be an essential part of brand storytelling. Like this Stranger Things event taking place in San Francisco and New York. The event drops fans straight into the Hawkins Lab where they can “discover the secrets within the walls,” and is marketed with a slick microsite featuring illustrations inspired by the show and behind-the-scenes images of what to expect on the night.

Whether you are hosting an event or an experience online or in real life, a well-designed landing page can make all the difference when it comes to building anticipation and boosting ticket sales. While this clean, grabbing landing page was purpose-built to promote Apps, you can use the template to market your next event.

Simply choose the light or dark design and customize the images and smart code and you’re away! Words take on a life of their own with this bright and bold branding trend, which encourages designers and marketers to take a fun approach to sharing text. Who needs images anyway? Not when you have animated letters and shapeshifting sentences, like this kinetic typography that conveys a sense of meaning through movement. However, this bold and playful trend doesn’t have to be 3D or animated to have an impact, as this static sans serif font from Envato author simonok shows us.

Hunky Dory is a bold display typeface with a childlike touch; and its relaxed, happy-go-lucky appearance makes it perfect for logos, packaging, branding, and headlines that don’t want to take themselves too seriously.

For more typography trends, our round-up video introduces everything you need to know about retro, experimental and handwritten fonts – as well as a whole host of other lettering styles – and supplies the assets to help you achieve the text effect you are looking for. That does it for the branding trends you’ll be seeing this year. If this video was helpful, don’t forget to like it below so we know to keep producing more content like this.

6 Digital Marketing Trends To Look For In 2021

...

As the worldwide pandemic increased its pace, digital transformation became a reality for organizations of all types. Most notably, eCommerce sales expanded, consumers spent significantly more time on social media, and video conferencing became commonplace. Marketers must remain on top of changing digital trends to quickly adapt to new technologies that can help them grow their business, create leads, enhance relationships with existing consumers, and gain a competitive advantage. So, in this video, I will inform you about the top 6 digital marketing trends you must focus on and where you should plan to spend your money in the next quarters to stay ahead of the pack. Before I proceed further, I would like you to subscribe to Propel Guru’s YouTube channel, like this video, and hit the bell icon so that you never miss an update from us.

The first trend to look for is An Increase In Video Marketing. According to recent research, by 2022, video is predicted to account for 82 % of all consumer internet traffic. The interactivity of video provides a fantastic chance for brands to engage with their audience while also shortening the communication gap between them and their following.

The second trend will be the increase in Personalized Email Marketing. The growth of personalization is the most significant change in email campaigns.

Consumers are more interested than ever in personalization. As a result, email marketing initiatives should be more tailored. Give your consumers enough information to appeal to their desires while also clearly stating your expectations. Engagement With Content Marketing will be the third trend that will be seen in 2021. Blog postings, emails, and case studies are the top three types of material employed by B2B marketers.

In 2021, SEO will be a top concern. Hence, you should improve your content to appear on the first pages of Google searches. Remember to generate content that meets your audience’s wants and assists them in resolving their issues. The fourth will be Surge In Influencer Marketing. Influencer marketing is a method of marketing that promotes brands, their products, services, and content through influential people on social networks.

The primary elements that predetermined the most important trends in influencer marketing for 2021 were COVID-19 and the rise of Gen Z. The fifth trend in the list is Shift To Non-Linear Customer Journey. With everything at their disposal, customers sometimes buy, sometimes check in on social media, sometimes buy right away, and sometimes wait a week to conclude. Hence, one can anticipate a decrease in the linear customer journey where they are taken through every touchpoint from awareness to decision. Last but not least digital marketing trend is Boost In Marketing Automation.

With the advancement of digital marketing technologies, it should come as no surprise that marketing automation will become an essential industry standard. This technology will advance further in 2021, allowing marketers to convert leads more effectively, provide targeted content, and track results. Businesses worldwide had a difficult time as the pandemic shattered marketing plans and expectations, leading to the downfall of some companies in the market. But is it all doom and gloom? What do you think?
