If you’re trying to get an affiliate marketing site business off the ground, you may find yourself frustrated by your initial efforts. It’s tough to rank on search engines because you are going up against well-funded sites with years of experience. If you’re banging your head against the wall because you haven’t figured out how to get your offers to convert, try using a polling sites to drive traffic to your affiliate site offers. For example, if you want to promote a weight loss offer, you’ll find there are a zillion weight loss websites out there, some of them with years of presence on the web. If you snag traffic through your crazy poll, and then provide access to the offer as the reward for taking the poll, you get visitors to view your offer, without competing with the niche sites. But do polling sites really work? First, get a domain name for your polling site. Then set up content that has to do with popular topics such as politics, celebrities, or other trends. Attach high-converting offers (you’ve seen the ones that say stuff like “sign in here for a chance to win a new Mercedes Bens”) to your polls, which you’ll want to change up from time to time. The offer doesn’t have to relate to the poll at all, which is how you get around all those specialty sites catering to the niche markets. Make sure you always provide plenty of content along with each poll so you aren’t just looking like a scammer. A smart way to do this is to set up the site, and then hire a professional copywriter to write your polls and the associated content, which you will post every so often. You’ll reap the rewards with very little ongoing effort!
