I’ve had a few questions through my support desk and one that come through Facebook messenger yesterday morning.
I thought it would be a good idea to elaborate on them in a bit more detail in this email.
This question came off the back of a question I answered in a Facebook group.
Is the diabetes niche a good affiliate marketing niche for 2023?
Yes, there is money to be made in it but it’s a tough nut to crack in the way of traffic.
Organic traffic is going to be hard and paid traffic almost impossible.
It’s a YMYL & E-A-T Niche.
YMYL stands for “Your Money, Your Life”
And E-A-T stands for Expertise, Authority & Trust.
Google wants to see genuine expertise and credentials when it comes to health topics that involve peoples financial security and well being.
Personally, I avoid any niche that involves chronic illness in 2023.
You CAN get traffic to those types of offers but it’s a rocky road, very expensive and risky.
This one came into my Facebook messenger this yesterday morning…
Have I ever tried Youtube Ads to Affiliate offers?
Short answer is no.
And here’s why…
I’m not a fan of any platform that is rigged for distraction.
For me, there are too many things that detract from your ad.
- Other peoples videos
- User Comments
- Video Ads competing with yours (and everything else under the sun).
That being said, they can be profitable, it’s just not something I would do.
Keep in mind, Youtube is a social media platform first and foremost and people forget that.
The goal of the platform is to keep users ON their platform.
It’s one of the reasons I’m not a huge fan of Facebook Ads.
I used to run them about 5 years ago, but these days it’s massively overcrowded and facebook oversell their ad space.
That means they’re cramming your ad in with everyone else’s and that causes users to get Ad boredom FAST.
Ad Fatigue kicks in quicker on social media than any other place.
That’s why I stick with Google & Microsoft Ads.
That’s not to say I would never at least test Youtube Ads.
When and if I do, I’ll let everyone know.
Should you use Youtube Ads?…
The answer to that is the answer to everything…TRY it.
Here’s another question I got yesterday…
This is a question I get at least 10 times a month.
But it’s a VALID question.
Do Solo Ads still work?
Short answer is yes!
But they take ‘know how’.
Solo Ads are about numbers & the long game.
It’s a game everyone can play but few know the rules.
If you have a strong follow up in place, leading to a strong affiliate offer you can make them work and they work well.
And it’s traffic whenever you want it.
Someone who is an expert at Solo Ads is James Fawcett.
He’s spent nearly $250K on Solo Ads.
Only issue is…. I HATE his sales page but his training is excellent.
If you want to master solo Ads then I absolutely do recommend watching what he does and how he makes them work.
Like I say, I’m not a fan of his sales page, but if you can see past it …
And if you are, you can throw custard pies at me!!…
He doesn’t say it on the page but the entire training is about solo ads for PROFIT.
I’ve got this myself and I’ve been using it for the past couple of months.
It’s solid and I highly recommend it.
