Make Money with eBay Affiliate Niche Website Builder Software

Apr 17, 2008
You may be asking at this point, what exactly is an eBay affiliate program? Actually, it is very simple. If anyone visits eBay, from clicking a link inside your website, you make commissions if they buy anything or sign up as a new member.

Ebay provides a somewhat brief tutorial and great tools devoted to helping you set up your links and/or RSS feeds to design into your website. If you become a member of the most innovative and successful affiliate program on the Web and drive your traffic to eBay, you will earn 50% to 75% commission on eBay's revenue from every sale made from that customer and $25 to $35 commissions per each new active member that signs up.

Be sure not to confuse your commissions with that of the total sale the customer makes. You will only earn a commission that is equal to usually about half of the profits eBay makes from the sale. Let's say, for example, someone from your website goes to eBay, signs up and buys something. They bid on an item that is a hundred dollars and they win the auction. Ebay's profit from the sale may be, let's say, $10...then you would make a portion of that profit, around $5 or more, based on if you are earning 50% or 75% commissions.

In the end you would make $25 from the sign up, plus a possible $7.50(75%) commission off the sale, for a total of $32.50 (these are ONLY estimated amounts given as example ONLY.) Not too bad considering your are now an eBay business, with no inventory, no shipping, no dropshipping, and no having to deal with customer satisfaction. You are making profits from everyone else's hard work. It's so easy it almost seems unfair.

How do you increase your sales/earnings? Simple, this is what eBay suggests: Get more traffic to your website. To accomplish this, paid search traffic might be an option that you consider, however natural search engine traffic resulting from optimization can be a free way to do this.

Things to DO to increase natural traffic: 1. Create unique content! 2. Repeat relevant keywords throughout your pages 3. Refresh content regularly! Robots and users like new content 4. Use title tags - page titles; 6-10 words of relevant keywords found throughout the page 5. Use short named URL and file names to enable search engines to crawl your site 6. Utilize your error pages to redirect users that are "lost" 7. Increase the relevance of your links: use "Go to eBay!" instead of "Click here!" 8. Ask other relevant websites to point to your site 9. Submit your site to the engines: let search engines know about you! 10. Utilize competitive research to learn more about online marketing direct from the competition Don't Do These Things: 1. Make use of frames: they are often too complex for crawlers to index 2. Use too many search-box navigation or drop down menus:crawlers are incapable of following them 3. Display hidden / invisible text: it is often looked at as "cheating" by search engines user referral Take advantage of eBay's brand

With just a little effort, you can earn a lot of money in the eBay Affiliate Program. All you have to do is drive traffic to eBay. This can be done by creating your own store, which is mostly for advanced users that can insert eBay's RSS feeds and code from the editor kit into your website code. Or you can find a company that will set up a personal website for you with the code already included.

You will most likely see awesome results in a very short time frame. This is because you will have a website with constantly changing and updating unique content, that search engines are begging for, if you have done things correctly. You will be guiding people to products that are already proven converting to a website that is one of the most successful in the world.
