Affiliate marketers are notorious for being secretive about their methods and we go to great lengths to keep our strategies close knit. At least that’s what most people think. The truth is –
You can find an affiliate marketer anywhere!
- Search for a product on Google.
- Within the first few results will be an obvious affiliate marketer as we tend to rank well since most of our content is long form reviews of the product you searched. The best affiliates rank the highest so pay attention to their strategies.
- When reading the review you will notice a link to purchase the product they are reviewing.
Boom there’s an affiliate!
You can even see which program they belong to by who they link to, ie it goes to Amazon so they are an Amazon affiliate.
So what’s the point?
Now that you see what affiliate marketers are doing you can try and replicate their tactics for other keywords. Simply see what other keywords they are ranking for using SEMRush.
Once you have a list of keywords you can see if they are competitive or easy to achieve a good ranking. More often than not you can just come up with different variations of the keywords and then try to rank for those.
