Photos, hard to find but necessary for anyone who owns and operates a website, YouTube channel, acts as a social media influencer, or anyone who just has any sort of online presence.

The Best Affiliate Tool: Search Engine Optimization

You already know that every affiliate marketer needs an arsenal of tools to be successful online. When it comes to finding them, however, how do you know where to start?

In your search for the best affiliate tool, you’ve probably come across countless people claiming to be successful marketers selling a magic traffic platform online. You hit their splash page and then whoosh! you’re inputting your email on some strange site for some e-book that promises to bring in 300k visitors a month and $5 million in revenue your first year!

I’ve been there. When I first started out I didn’t know the basics. I thought I needed some shortcut to traffic and sales.

Unfortunately, these so called affiliate geniuses are likely just trying to rope you into dishing out your hard earned money for the “answer”. The truth is, there is no amount of money that is going to buy you raw, organic traffic overnight.

The importance of that organic traffic is that it converts. Organic traffic is the type of traffic that you want and need as an affiliate. The goal is to drive people to your site when they search for the keywords you write about. When they find what they are looking for, they click your links. When they click your links, they sign up or purchase a product. You receive commission and repeat.

Inorganic, fabricated, or fake traffic usually doesn’t click through affiliate links. There is only one tool that you need to drive real, organic traffic to your website. That tool is Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

How To Get Rich Slowly But Surely

Most everyone on the internet these days likes to try and sell you on some surefire way to get rich quick, however, as soon as you fall for their newest gimmick and they sell you on a ridiculously overpriced product, you realize that getting rich overnight is just not a reality. No worries, I’ve been there too.

I understand that you may be arguing the standard “What If” scenarios here. Let’s face it, the odds of winning the lottery are around 1 in 302 million. Seems pretty slim to me, and I don’t exactly have $302 million to put up to guarantee that I pick the winning number combination.  Even if you do, you better hope that you don’t end up having to split the pot with some other lucky sucker out there or you may be net negative pretty quickly.

The beginning of this article may not be exactly what you want to hear, however, I can offer you something much more rewarding, the basic knowledge needed on how to get rich slowly but surely.
