Let us kick off by focusing on that new world philosophy called, the “Law of Attraction”. 

Within this philosophy the process is, that if you think positively and convey positive messages, then positivity will follow through to you.

Also, with the reverse being true.

In order for your brand awareness to increase, you need to continue to update your social networks with fresh content and ideas, that is both thought provoking and relevant within your niche market.

The content on your site is powerful.

Before writing your content on social networks, think about the following:

Who is your ideal customer?
Why do they need you?

Your messages conveyed through content marketing will shine through, if you are thinking about the reader, and their needs.

Without a constant social presence, building up brand awareness online will fail.

What we mean by this is that you need to be consistent.

You need to login daily to every social media and post and engage with the public.

Do you have ‘star’ appeal online?

If you don’t think you do, then you are very clearly not doing all that is necessary for your brand.

Building trust with your brand, requires you to engage, research, comment, like, share, follow, post, write articles, write reviews, give away items, do surveys, do quizzes and much more!

Engagement builds up your traffic and a potential client list for your niche markets.

We’ve often been asked by our subscribers if you have to have a list for each website. We always inform our members, that this is wise.

Each affiliate marketing website is like a little ‘cash register’, therefore, with each little ‘shop’ you will need to have a separate email marketing campaign (list) of subscribers.

You cannot and should not ever put subscribers from one ‘shop’ to another ‘shop’, just because they subscribed and you have a name and email on your list. This is WRONG, and ILLEGAL in the eyes of people’s personal identities and information laws.

Invite people to join your newsletter or weekly bulletin messages on each of your affiliate websites, with a separate campaign, and create an email marketing list for each one, to keep yourself and your subscribers personal identifiable information safe and your lists safe from spam laws.

Your business's reputation is paramount, so be honest and responsive with your readers and prospects.

Let them know what they are getting up front before they subscribe, so there are no surprises when you email them with weekly content updates and newsletters etc.

For the purpose of conveying ‘manners’ online, we urge you never to post negative content about the competition, competitors or the like with your niche markets.

The true key to marketing and promoting your niche markets is knowing who your audience is and what they want at any given time.

We’ve written previously that your content could be ‘controversial’ but not really gone into depth as to what that means.

Let us explain what we meant by controversial content in our own words:

Think about ‘starting a conversation’, what is it about your niche market that will do this?

Think about ‘new items’, what stirs emotions in people relating to your niche market?

Belief systems shouldn’t be targeted for the purpose of stirring up controversy, but if you’re affiliate website is targeting a specific belief i.e. gay marriage and selling items for this market, then create that content.

You can use controversy in your titles to entice new visitors eg. If you are in the online/digital marketing space, you’d know the competition is fierce, and growth hacks are awesome enticers’. E.G. 8 Post Ideas that Work or 20 Headlines that Grab Your Attention
