There are many different ways to make money on the Internet, but using buying keywords is definitely one of the best ways to make money from affiliate sales. Here I am going to give you a great list of buying keywords that you can use to help grow a site with some content that will be helpful to searchers and will dramatically increase how much you can make.
Many people are simply looking to buy a product online for the best price and if we have a site about a product or better yet a range of products then we can be helpful and show them just where to buy it for a great price.
With sites like CJ that have thousands of advertisers all wanting affiliates to help to sell their products and the Amazon associates program we should be able to find a resource that allows us to use their links to help to sell a product. What I do like to do is try to find a program that actually genuinely does offer the best possible prices.
For me this is important for a number of reasons.
- It allows be to genuinely write that “We have the best price for ………”
- It gives proper value to the searcher
- Return visitors are much more likely. They may not buy straight away but after they continue searching they will return to your page or Amazon and buy as it genuinely was the best price
- You may get bookmarked by the searcher which may give you a backlink
- It simply makes you all fuzzy inside knowing that you may be bored as hell writing about the products but at least you are being honest about it being available for the best price by your affiliate link
And I am sure that there are loads of other reasons why we should actually try to find a program that allows us to sell a product at the best price but my brain is a little mangled (as usual).
But, if we can let’s really try to write about products where we can allow people to buy at a great price. Even just for the simple fact that we are more likely to get a good conversion rate.
One of my sites get 1 sale for on average every ten visitors to the site. Not clicks but visitors.
This is because it genuinely is the cheapest place to buy the products and I bang on about it in the text. If you can encourage your visitors to compare prices (our first buying keyword) and feel confident that they will not find it cheaper, then there is a very good chance that at some point they will be back to buy.
What Are Buying Keywords?
A buying keyword is simply a query that someone types in to a search engine that means that they are actively looking to buy a product if they find it for the best price. Now, many will convert terribly but a lot of them will convert well.
We can use them in a manner of ways and this is down to the type of writing that you prefer and the product itself. You may make money blogging by writing a chatty style of site where you talk about the results from a certain face cream and compare it to others or you may have a fully blown sales blog where you simply use direct buying keywords in you post title and simply tell the visitor that you have the so and so for the best price.
I use both methods and both work. It really does depend on the niche and what you are happy with writing about.
But rank for buying keywords and you will make sales, no doubt about it.
It may be a good idea before you build a site around products to try out the best buying keywords on Hubpages if you do not yet have an authority site or read how to build an authority site yet. But ideally you will have your own authority site where you can add in a post about your new idea and see how well it converts.
So, here we go:
List Of Buying Keywords
If you build a site with post titles that contain the following words you will make money, bottom line.
Adsense, affiliate programs etc. It works for them all. I prefer to sell the product. It gives more money and for me I feel it is a better business model. But I do use Adsense as well when the products simply do not convert to sales.
In the following add your main keywords or the actual product.
If you fill up a site like this you will have a ton of useful content that people are searching for and some of the posts will result in some good sales.
- ……….For sale
- Best price……….
- ………….Best price
- Low cost………
- Low price………
- For sale……….
- ………For sale online
- Who sells…………..
- Where to buy…………
- Price compare……..
- Price comparisons……….
- Price comparisons of……….
- ………..On Amazon (yes really)
- Where can I buy……….
- Where can you buy………
- How do I get……….
- Who sells……..cheap
- Who sells………the cheapest
- The cheapest……….online
- ………Compare prices
- …………Under (add your price ranges)
- Who sells the cheapest………..on line
- Cheap …………online
- ………..On line
- What is the best price for…………
- Best reviews of……….
- Get cheap………
- Price comparisons for…………
- Compare prices for……….
- Deals for………
- Is……….better than……..
- Get the best price for……….
50 simply being the product itself.
Get all of them to number 1 in the search engine results and you will sell your item.
This is by no means any kind of exhaustive list but it is a good starting point.
Many people search using many different words for a product. If you have those words as your post title then you will be one of the very few people that have done so.
You will be amazed what people type in. Many people type in Amazon and a product which always surprises me.
The main point of this buying keywords post is to not forget how people use a search engine. People trust them and they ask them questions believing that the results in, say, Google are what they have found to be the best price for…….
People do not think about or know that it is the backlinks that we have that make us get to number 1 in the serps. General users of the Internet believe that when they ask google to price compare a product that the top result will be what they found the cheapest price to be.
Hopefully we can confirm their expectations by being at number 1 and offering the product for the best price. So our title of “Price Compare…….” where we then write a post about “If we compare the prices for…….we will find that we really do have the best price for……here. Pleas use the link to see just why so many customers return to us time and time again to buy……
We encourage you to compare our prices with anyone else as we are confident that you will not find…..cheaper on line”
You get the idea.
We have a very nice and genuine business model here where we are really showing people where to get something at a great price.
And for me this is better than having an Adsense site rank well for an item where the searcher has no chance of actually buying it from you. Not to say I do not have sites like that but only because no one would buy the items I was trying to sell.
So, you now have at least 50 post titles to fill up your site with and all for the price of only $1.35 or however much you send me using the donate button 😉
Just messing. But I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has made a donation so far. I was talking to my good lady last night about this after I received a $5 tip from a gracious reader. Getting a donation for written content feels so different to getting an affiliate commission. It actually means people like your writing and found it helpful, which makes me feel all fuzzy inside.
And obviously, keep it coming.
Or I won’t let you read any more!!!
Now, obviously if you try to use these buying keywords for some relatively obscure term you will rank very highly for some of them but the search volume may simply be too low to make much money from sales. But if it is for a relatively highly searched for product then you may see a very good return for your time.
Obviously many people simply search for the product itself or the general term for the product. But for popular items or items that vary a lot in price from site to site there are going to be a good amount of searchers using all manner of longtail keywords in their searches. If you rank for them all you will make money, and that is the bottom line.
If each post results in 1 sale a month you still get to sell 50 of the product a month. And chances are that if you have 50 posts on a site about a product you will be seen as the authority for that site. Check out the affiliate marketing guide for tips on site design and increasing sales and you will make money.
The bottom line really is that you need to spend a lot of time working and getting backlinks to make money on the Internet. You really should not be reading this you know and I certainly should not be taking the time to write it. It is very hard work and needs patience and confidence that what you do today will actually make money better in a years time.
Just keep writing the content and get as many backlinks from as many places as you can and you can be the top site for whatever topic you pick. Be it large or small, expensive or cheap, very competitive or not, you can rank well if you decide to.
The sad part is though that much of what we put online simply never delivers the results that we expected. A lot of stuff simply flops and fails. But, when you do find something that is performing well then jump right in. You do not need to keep working all of your sites if they do not results in sales or earnings. Attack the one site that you have that performs best and go bonkers on it for a month. I took this advice I gave myself early this year and the results are amazing.
Go backlink crazy on an aged site, add content every day and really work it properly to make it the number one resource online for it. It definitely lifts the spirits to see $500 earned in a day and if you really set your mind to dominate a niche and put the work in, which is an awful lot, then you can make as much money as you want online. Just find that niche that really delivers for you and run with it. Who says you have to have hundreds of sites? Keep building them until you find the right niche then expand it out big style.
Anyway, pep talk over.
So, knock the junk sites from the top position and get yourself there for 50 buying keywords for your product. Then go make another load of sites or expand on what you have. If you know that a product makes sales then go full out to concentrate on ranking highly for it so that you help searchers to buy it for the best price and you get a nice commission. Not a bad way to make a living is it?
Now, back to writing for more buying keywords.
