Dell Inspiron 15 5585 Review

The Dell Inspiron 15 5585 is Dell’s entry into the Ryzen market, bringing great performance and results for budget-conscious users. This model is the AMD replacement for the Intel model of the same laptop, however, the AMD version comes with more than just a CPU replacement.

Overall, the chassis of the laptop, battery life and the general performance of the laptop differ from its Intel counterpart, the Dell 15 5584, as our review will show. This laptop targets the budget audience who wants a good everyday performing laptop, for a lower price. 

Technical Specifications

CPU AMD Ryzen 7 3700U 2.3 – 4 GHz  Zen+ Architecture
GPU AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 – 2048 MB
RAM 16GB 1200 MHz RAM
Motherboard AMD Promontory
Storage WDC 512GB SSD
Connectivity SD Card Reader, USB 2.0, RJ-45, Noble Lock, AC Adapter, USB 3.1, USB-C, HDMI, 3.5mm audio

Physical Form Factor

Dell Inspiron 15 5585 is a good-looking laptop at first glance. If you’ve ever laid your eyes on a Dell XPS this laptop might remind you of it as soon as you look at it. This is done on purpose, and it’s a plus as XPS laptops are very good-looking. You wouldn’t notice that it’s a budget laptop unless you open up the lid, where the budget design comes into play.

The plastic on the insides of the lid is of a very noticeable lower quality than the one on the outer parts of the laptop, and the insides feel empty and not as firm as they could have been. This is especially noticeable when you rest your hands against the keyboard when the plastic starts feeling a little bendy. It’s unfair to compare this laptop to the build quality of the XPS especially when we look at the price, but there’s always room for improvement. 

One plus with the chassis is that there are no noticeable creaking sounds when using the laptop, which can be noticed in some of its counterparts and competitors.


When it comes to the screen, the Dell Inspiron comes with an LG IPS 15.6-inch screen which at least in size, is pretty much the standard for the budget laptop category. If you’re looking for a laptop that will allow you to work on the balcony or somewhere outside in direct sunlight, you may be a little disappointed as the laptop comes with a display that’s below average in terms of outdoor brightness when compared to similar laptops on the market.

However, viewing angles are absolutely great and even better than what we’ve seen on other laptop displays previously. Some of the display settings can be toyed with, so the not-so-vibrant colour default colour scheme can be modified to make the laptop colours look more lively if you prefer to have them that way. 

Battery Life

At first glance on paper, the 42 Wh battery may seem incapable and small, but that’s certainly not the case when we put it to real-life use. When measured in a WLAN running time test the Dell Inspiron can reach up to 7 hours of uninterrupted battery run time. If charging time is an important factor to you, the laptop can take your battery from 0% – 100% in about 2-2.5 hours which is a little below average but still in the normal range.

Some ultra books in this price range can charge the battery in less than 2 hours, but this isn’t a factor that, at least according to us, is a deal-breaker. 

Keyboard and Touchpad

All of the keys on the Dell Inspiron are backlit, which makes it perfect for working in a dark room, especially at night. Size-wise it’s not a desktop-class keyboard but it’s still comfortable enough for people with bigger hands or fingers to be comfortable enough typing for a longer period. There are no dedicated Page Up and Page Down buttons, and the arrow keys are much smaller than normal, which can make it a bit harder to work with applications such as Excel where a lot of data is involved. However, the keys are firm and people who do a lot of typing will surely appreciate it.

The Touchpad comes with invisible keys and has one line in the middle at the bottom of the touchpad to differentiate between right and left-click. It’s all plastic and it feels accurate and smooth independent of the speed at which you are moving your cursor. One downside of the touchpad is the weak click feedback which is insufficient at times and can make it a hassle to work where a lot of clicking is involved. 


We don’t have many expectations when it comes to speakers on a budget laptop, but the integrated speakers on the Dell Inspiron are good enough when talking about bass reproduction and depth of sound. The only downside is the lack of good enough maximum volume which can struggle to fill even a smaller room. If you are using the laptop for multimedia and the occasional movie or tv show, it should be more than good enough.


This laptop certainly isn’t a beast when you look at the tech specs on paper. Especially when you look at the integrated GPU. However, this is exactly where the AMD Ryzen with Integrated Graphics shines. It easily outperforms its Intel counterpart, the Core i7-8565U where the CPU performance is similar, but the Ryzen simply outclassed it in GPU performance. The laptop can handle everyday tasks with ease and multitasking is a breeze. If you are a casual gamer, rest assured that you can jump on a gaming session of Rocket League, CS Go or Fortnite without any visible trouble.


The Dell Inspiron 15 5585 comes with plenty of power for everyday tasks and can handle them without much trouble. On the outside the build quality is very decent, even premium, whereas the overall chassis on the laptop, especially when the lid is open looks very cheap and plasticky.  There are a lot of connectivity options on the laptop with modern ports such as USB 3.1 and a USB Type-C. 


Asus FX 503 Gaming Laptop Review – Simple On The Outside But Packed With Surprises

Asus is well-known when it comes to making gaming laptops with peak performance ratings and great looking on the outside. When looking at the FX 503 from the outside, you wouldn’t necessarily notice it’s a gaming laptop straight away. It has four slanting streaks from each corner that converge into an ASUS logo in the middle. We’re not going to lie; the overall design of the laptop makes it stand away from other laptops in the room.

What’s great about the outside design of the laptop is that even though it’s great looking, the gaming aspect isn’t emphasized physically on the outside. The design is very subtle, and it would be hard to tell it’s a gaming laptop unless you open it and notice the red outlines of the buttons on the keyboard and the GTX sticker next to the touchpad. We love this, as it makes the laptop very easy to bring into an office meeting when you’re not gaming. Nobody would know that it’s a laptop meant for gaming, so you should feel perfectly comfortable bringing it into an office meeting with a room full of people.

A Surprisingly Handsome Tinder Date

The ASUS FX503 is one of the laptops that looks much better in person than in any picture online. When you see and hold the laptop in your hands, that’s when you can truly appreciate how good and sleek it looks for a gaming laptop.

Furthermore, it’s packed with different ports and connectivity making it great if you have a lot of different peripherals you want to use with it. You can practically connect anything to it, but let’s go over the ports and connectivity options just to grasp how good this laptop is. On the left side, you will find several ports, including the charging point, an HDMI port and several USB ports. Whereas, the right side of the laptop is packed with a Kensington lock which is a really good safety feature, especially if you’re into the habit of leaving your laptop in the car, an SD card reader and another USB port.

A little miss? But they don’t take way the amazingness of  ASUS FX503

The only ports missing are a USB-C port and a Thunderbolt port. We feel that having these ports would have done wonders for the futureproofing of the machine, and it would make it a much better workhorse for people who work daily with these ports. Furthermore, the lack of modern ports means that the user would have to connect other devices through a dongle which is a hassle, but for what the laptop offers it’s so far so good.

ASUS has made ventilation one of the priorities with this laptop which is great because gaming laptops can overheat quite easily which further hinders the performance of the machine. Below the keyboard, you will notice a bunch of lines strewn across the lower body of the laptop, and this is done with the single aim of having better airflow.

As soon as you open the laptop it’s noticeable right away that we’re talking about a gaming laptop. The keyboard buttons are all outlined with the easily recognizable ROG red colour, clearly stating that a gaming beast is hiding beneath the hood. Even though the red colour is almost overused in the gaming world, it’s subtle enough to not bother you if you’re not a fan of it.

Performance – Can It Handle The Heat?

It doesn’t matter how good a laptop looks unless it brings some serious gaming performance to the table. Looking at the technical specs it’s clear that this laptop is no slouch. But, it’s time to see how those specs translate into real-world usage.

The 128GB M.2 SSD packs some nice performance, and even though it isn’t the best performing SSD on the market, it’s more than enough for an everyday user. You will notice the speed of the SSD especially if you’re transferring from an HDD. It’s a night and day difference. The only downside is the small amount of storage at 128GB, but the 1TB 7200RPM HDD is a good addition. It allows you to store the larger files on it. We advise you to keep only the most important games and apps on the SSD for faster booting and better performance.

It’s powered by an Intel Core i7-7700HQ which packs quite a punch. It scored a 741 in Cinebench which is what we would usually expect from a machine with internals such as the ASUS FX503. In Unigine Heaven it scored a min FPS of 8.5, a max FPS of 96.5 and an average FPS of 50.4. With is with x8 AA, 1600×900 resolution and Ultra Settings with turned of tessellation. The performance is not astounding, it but’s perfectly acceptable and good for the parts it has.


The ASUS FX503 is a decent laptop with great performance for the internals it carries. Physically it’s a stunning machine which can work great in both office and gaming scenarios. It has good connectivity options even though it lacks USB-C and Thunderbolt support. The Storage options are good, it has an SSD for the apps you want to boot right away.  A 1TB 7200RPM HDD for storing movies and media files accentuates it even more.

Sound-wise the speakers perform greatly for a mid-range laptop. It has a good depth of sound, but the bass is a little lacking. This is expected from a laptop, however, especially for a mid-range one. Furthermore, the keyboard buttons are tactile and comfortable to use for a longer period which is always a big plu. Keyboard user friendliness always mean a lot especially when you’re gaming for hours on end. Overall, the ASUS FX 503 is a laptop we can easily recommend if you’re looking for a decent mid-range laptop. The icing about the laptop is that even with its  great features, it does not send buyers  breaking the banks.

Asus ZenBook Flip 15 Q535 Review

With the Zenbook Flip Q535, Asus has managed to combine several devices into one. The Zenbook is a tablet and laptop, 2 in 1 with enough power for gaming and everyday tasks. Where once convertible laptops failed to meet the demand of modern applications and gaming, today the newer generation of processors, in this case, the Intel Core i7 – 8550U blasts through tasks and applications with ease.

The Zenbook also comes with a nice build quality, something that we will discuss further in detail in the review below. While the i7 may be the forerunner in the long list of technical specifications, the other details are meaty, and nothing to scoff at either. 

Technical Specifications

CPU Intel Core i7-8550U 4 x 1.8 – 4 GHz, Kaby Lake Refresh
GPU NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile – 2048 MB, Core: 1493 MHz, Memory: 7000 MHz, GDDR5, Nvidia 382.53, Nvidia Optimus
RAM 16384 MB  DDR4-2400, 8GB soldered
Motherboard Intel Kaby Lake-U + iHDCP 2.2 Premium PCH
Storage 256GB SSD + 2TB HDD
Connectivity 1x USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2, status LEDs, volume rocker, power-on switch,  SD card reader, 3.5 mm audio combo, 2x USB 3, HDMI 1.4, power input

Physical Form Factor

When it comes to the physical form factor of the laptop the most striking feature is the fact that the laptop can completely fold to turn from a laptop into a tablet. This is a great feature, especially for people who work on the go. Having the capability of turning your laptop into a tablet with one move is great for productivity, meaning you can handle tasks more easily on the go.

The second thing you will notice about this laptop is that it’s made out of aluminium. Overall, the colour is something of a dark grey, which is reminiscent more of black, than grey. In terms of quality, the aluminium holds up nicely to pressure tests, including both the bottom base of the laptop and the display lid. We tried applying pressure pretty much everywhere, and the only place the laptop showed signs of giving way to the pressure we applied is the middle of the laptop, and even then only slightly.

If you are a fan of opening the laptop with one hand, in the case of the Asus Zenbook that would be pretty much impossible due to the sturdiness and stiffness of the hinges, which is understandable as the hinges need to support the folding of the laptop. 


There are two display options one being the UHD 4K touchscreen, and the other a standard Full HD display. If you are serious about doing work in tablet mode, we’d suggest getting the touch screen UHD.

In terms of brightness, the laptop display was visible even when working solely on the battery, with about 87% in brightness distribution. The Colour contrast is good enough, with some minimal light bleeding at the edges of the screen which is not ideal. But the Asus Zenbook is still rocking a UHD display, so the image quality especially when looking at still photos looks very high quality. 

Do keep in mind that this model comes with a glossy display which can make it harder to work in places where there is direct sunlight, as it reflects easily off the screen making it hard to see what’s happening on the laptop. 

Battery Life

Having the option of working in tablet mode would be worthless without good battery life, and this is of vital importance to one of the main features of the laptop. Unfortunately, this particular model has very high energy consumption rates, so running time on battery alone is far from ideal. 

Even though the battery is relatively large at 52 KWh the standard WLAN test gave the laptop around 5 hours of battery life. If you want to charge the laptop from 0% to 100% you would have to wait around 2 hours of charging, which is a little below average. Of course, the performance is significantly decreased when working on a laptop powered only on battery alone. If you want to have any serious work done you would have to plug the laptop into a power socket.

Keyboard And Touchpad

The keyboard of the Asus is backlit and well organized. Backlighting allows for work in environments with low light, which is always a plus. In terms of size, the keys are big enough for people with bigger fingers and hands, and they have a smooth and flat surface which doesn’t make them uncomfortable to use even after long periods of typing. The short travel point may take some getting used to, but otherwise, the keyboard is perfectly fine for prolonged use. 

Some of the keys are a little smaller like the “Enter” of the Numpad, and the arrow keys are smaller. This takes some getting used to but overall the keyboard is of very decent quality.

When comes to the touchpad it has a smooth surface, and it performs smoothly as well. There’s an area of low touch recognition around the bottom of the touchpad but this isn’t a big deal as that part of the touchpad is rarely used. Overall, a very smooth touchpad which will let you perform your daily tasks with ease, without the need to carry a dedicated mouse with you wherever you go.

Touch Screen

The touch screen works great whether you use it with a stylus, or with your hand. In our review, we didn’t notice any problems with it, and it performed flawlessly. If this is something you care about, the touchscreen of the Asus will make you happy.


Thanks to a great CPU and a mid-range gaming GPU the Asus Zenbook can easily compete with some of the gaming laptops on the market today. It won’t play all modern games at High Present and 60fps, but if you want to do some light to medium gaming, this laptop will handle games with more than enough power. For work-related tasks, the laptop handles applications with ease.


If you want a good-performing laptop with a touchscreen, and that can act as a tablet with its foldable design, the Asus Zenbook is great. It offers plenty of storage, a good display and plenty of performance for any task or application you may want to throw at it. For working on the go, folding into a tablet and working on the touch screen is great. Overall, for the price range, the Asus Zenbook does exactly what it’s supposed to do, and more.

In this article, we will reveal why Convesio is the best WordPress hosting provider at the moment and why every person should know about it when searching for a good WordPress hosting provider.

What is WordPress Hosting?

WordPress hosting is a special service that allows a person to run their own WordPress site on the internet. This type of hosting offers highly secure and fast websites, as well as daily backups, flexibility, WordPress updates, and website uptime.

It will surely save a lot of time and it ensures that the website is running smoothly. But if you want to improve your website’s SEO and expand the user traffic, then you will have to choose a trusted WordPress hosting provider.

Additionally, the WordPress host’s job is also to speed up the installation of the website, simplify it, and protect it. Also, with WordPress hosting, you will get a server storage space for all of the site’s files and media.

Why Choose Convesio as a WordPress Hosting Provider?

Convesio is the world’s first and also the fastest WordPress hosting service that is making use of Docker containers and scalable CDN networks in order to share the website content at lightning speed all around the world.

The Benefits of Using Convesio as a WordPress Hosting Provider

There are many advantages to choosing Convesio as your WordPress hosting provider. Below we will reveal some of them, as there are truly many.

Consistent Uptime

Convesio uses load-balancer containers in order to lower the website’s traffic load, which means that its servers will never go down. Unlike other websites on the internet that go down for an unknown amount of time, your website will stay up and running all of the time.

Fast Caching

Page caching is a well-known method for making dynamic content static, which can speed up the WordPress website by between 2 and 5 times. This is because the website’s content is generated every time a visitor makes a request. The server-level caching layer from Convesio can be used in many ways.

Database Cluster

If you don’t know what a database cluster is, then you should know that it is a set of databases that are managed by a single database server, which is constantly running. Convesio’s WordPress sites are running on some very powerful MySQL servers. These servers allow multiple users to create and manage a database, and it ensures that the website’s requests are processed accurately.


One of the most time-consuming as well as dangerous tasks when running a hosted website is restoring a web-hosted database. Because of that, Convesio has a self-restoration data feature that will protect every WordPress website from these types of dangers. This self-restoration data feature always keeps a backup of the website’s data and restores it if your website goes down.


Convesio uses the latest security measures in order to assist its clients in scanning and monitoring for certain unexpected security threats. Additionally, its security features enable the clients to edit the code, the environment variables, and the configurations in advance in order to avoid any type of malware or other threats.

Optimized Speed

The WordPress websites which are hosted by Convesio feature a high optimizing speed thanks to its page caching and clustered database. Thanks to HTTP/2, the speed of your website will improve while also conserving the data bandwidth.

Automatic Backup

Every person that is using Convesio as a host for a WordPress website is allowed to easily clone, back up, and restore their website. It will automatically back up the client’s data, however, they will have to schedule the backup somewhere between every 3 hours and every 15 days. This backup system will add another layer of security to the client’s website, as it will store their data in a different location.

Application Monitoring

Another important benefit is the utilization of application performance monitoring (APM), which makes sure that the applications are running smoothly. Convesio provides its clients with the opportunity to monitor their websites at the WordPress application level, which means that every change will need to be approved before it gets implemented.

Moneyback Guarantee

Convesio is a trustworthy, reliable, and cost-effective web hosting company on the market. It offers its potential clients a one-month free trial, where everyone can apply without the need to provide any credit card information. 

Convesio Pricing Information

Convesio’s pricing is amongst the most aggressive in the industry, but that is reasonable as it offers many benefits to the clients, as you can read from the above section. The prizes that Convesio is charging are the following:

Acer Aspire 7 (A717-71G) Review

Acer’s new entry to the gaming laptop market with their Acer Aspire 7 is worth taking note of. The laptop looks sleek and well designed on the outside, but it lacks some of the trademarks features its competitors in the same, or similar price range and market have had for a while now. Even though its internals gives out a gaming laptop vibe, Acer is trying to position the Acer Aspire 7 as a multimedia all-rounder laptop[. It’s an argument that has a decent amount of truth to it, but with some of the Aspire 7’s limitations, we’ll try to see how far that argument can take the laptop.

Technical Specifications

CPU Core i7-7700HQ 3.8Ghz
GPU GTX  1060 6GB
RAM 8GB DDR4 2400Mhz

How Well Built Is The Laptop?

If we take a look at the bulkiness of the laptop, it measures around 27mm which easily puts it in the bulky category. This is a laptop, so the big screen added with the bit of bulk, makes it a bit harder to carry around and transport. If you like gaming on the move, this might be a little bit of a problem, but overall, it shouldn’t cause you too much trouble.

The material covering the lid of the laptop is brushed aluminium which makes the laptop look a little more premium and gives it a certain sturdiness in the middle, except for the bottom chin due to the distances at which the hinges have been placed. It feels a little flexible and prone to bending, but this won’t cause any problems in an ordinary usage scenario.

Furthermore, the laptop comes equipped with a USB-C port, LAN port, HDMI, USB 3.0, 3.5mm audio jack and 2 USB 2.0 ports. Pretty standard for a laptop, and will suffice for most users. The addition of a Kensington lock and Thunderbolt support would have been nice, but sadly it’s lacking here.

Overall, it’s missing the key marker of a gaming laptop physically speaking, which can either be an advantage, or disadvantage depending on what you want to use the laptop for primarily. The design is clean enough so you can bring it into work without anyone knowing that it’s a gaming laptop which is a plus in some scenarios. However, if you want cool RGB lights and coloured keyboard keys, this laptop isn’t for you.

Is The Screen On Par For a Multimedia or Gaming Laptop?

The first thing you’ll notice when unboxing the laptop is the big 17-inch screen. At one point in time, 17 inches used to be the standard for desktop monitors, and with good reason. When put on a laptop, the 17-inch screen does look huge, and it would be perfect for playing FPS games with a wider FOV or watching movies and TV shows. While the bigger screen is a plus it’s not only the size that matters.

It has a pixel density of 127ppi, with great viewing angles. Furthermore, the Acer Aspire 7’s maximum brightness settings are bright indeed and are perfect for viewing in direct sunlight if your desk happens to be positioned against a window, or in a place where a lot of sunlight comes in. It has a decent sRGB range coverage and colour reproduction. Overall, it’s not the best laptop screen on the market, but do remember that this is a budget gaming laptop. When considering that, the screen is more than decent and will be perfect for multimedia consumption.

Battery Life

The battery life is relatively good considering this is a Windows laptop. Overall web browsing should give you about 6-7 hours of light web browsing without media playback in the background while watching movies or tv shows will make the laptop last about 4 hours on average, which isn’t bad at all.

Gaming on the other hand will give you around 1 hour and 30 minutes which is ok for a quick and light gaming session. However, if you want to play heavier games you have to use the charger because of the lack of power when the laptop is running on the battery which will result in poor fps, and because it will run out fast.

Touchpad and Keyboard

The Keyboard is wide enough to be comfortably used for hours on end, and the placement of the keys is great. On the right side, you will find a num pad which is a bit smaller and can make things a bit difficult if you have large fingers, but overall the experience of using the keyboard is very close to using a full-size desktop PC keyboard which is a big plus.

When it comes to the touchpad it has some positives and some negatives attached to it. It’s placed a little on the left which can impair the default hand placement on the WASD keys, but its responsiveness is decent for both moving the cursor and scrolling up and down. It doesn’t detect movement at the edges which are good for preventing accidental movement of the cursor.

You can also configure hand gestures of up to 3 fingers which is always a good addition.


The Acer Aspire 7 comes with an i7-7700HQ 3.8 GHz processor which is still very capable to this day. Running Office applications or applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator can be done without hassle and the laptop handles them perfectly. Opening more than one application at the same time can be limited by the RAM of 8GB, which is a little low for a gaming/productivity laptop. 16GB RAM is pretty much the standard nowadays and with good reason.

Furthermore, the GTX 1060 6GB is a very decent performing GPU even today, easily matching up to the GTX2060 with a very small percentage in the performance difference. It can handle most modern games at a Medium graphical present which is more than decent if you are a light gamer. If you are planning on playing FPS games for more frames it would be wise to tweak the graphical settings individually to best suit your needs.


Overall, the Acer Aspire 7 is very decent gaming and multimedia laptop. The downsides are the 8GB RAM and the 1TB 5400rpm HDD, but both the RAM and Storage can be upgraded for more performance if needed. The laptop has an SSD expansion slot, which is the first thing you should upgrade if you’re considering buying the laptop. 


A big 17-inch screen will do any games and movies justice and it can be used in direct sunlight without too much trouble due to the high brightness of the screen. For the price point, it’s hard to beat the performance and overall looks of the laptop.


What are Types of Affiliate Marketing Channels?

Types of Affiliate Marketing Channels

Affiliates share some widespread practices to ensure that they are successful when selling and promoting their products. Each affiliate marketer needs to keep their audience engaged so that it is easy for them to get sales and keep them updated about several products in the market.

Although affiliate marketers need to avoid copying tactics and formulate their methods of getting clients to buy from them, some channels are familiar to everyone. The affiliate marketer can leverage the following media to help them sell more:


Influencers are people with many followers on social media sites, and they derive admiration or inspire a large number of people. An affiliate marketer can use these influencers for advertising the products they are promoting because all their followers will get curious. It will be easy to turn them into customers and consumers.

Sometimes, you will not need to pay for an ad; you can offer an influencer a sample or supply of the product you are selling so that they can talk about it on their blog, website, social media pages, YouTube channels, and other places. Some influencers prefer to share the profit that comes to the marketer due to the sales they helped make.

Email lists

This is an important marketing strategy for any affiliate marketer because you can talk to your clients directly through their emails. You can use them to advertise and inform the clients about a new product or relay any promotional information you need your clients to know about. Other marketers prefer to send newsletters to the clients so that they are up to date with any information they may need.

Use hyperlinks to ensure the client has an easier way to get to your website so that they can purchase a product if they need to. It is also crucial that you create new ways to collect emails every day to add them to your email list. The more emails you have, the better chance you have of converting them to customers.


In some ways, bloggers are like influencers, and they can help any affiliate marketer get more clients and make more money. It is important that you choose a blogger who has a lot of traffic to their blogs and readers because this way, you know that they will reach out to more people.

The blogger will get a reward for using their channel to talk about the product. You can also create your blog and talk about relevant information about the products you are selling. For example, if you are an affiliate marketer for sports supplements, you can start a blog about sports and talk about how active individuals can gain more from supplements.

As an affiliate marketer, it is crucial that you think about any channel you can use to keep you in the client’s mind. Keep inquiries coming and find more ways to get to your potential clients to have more customers in the end.


Tips to Help You Earn Money in Affiliate Marketing

Earn Money in Affiliate Marketing

Even with a great website and an excellent product to market, it can still be challenging for some people to make it as affiliate marketers. If you are looking to make more money in the program, you need to employ specific tips to be successful.

Here are some essential tips that will help you become prosperous in making passive income as an affiliate marketer:

Create a rapport

If you consider affiliate marketing a long-term way of making money, you need to create a good rapport with your clients and potential customers. Once you choose your niche, you need to ensure that you increase traffic to your site, especially if you have all the clients’ information. Even if a person does not buy your product, you need to continue any commun9iication you have with them because you might get them to buy eventually. You can also use your clients to get you referrals after they buy from you.

Write reviews about the products

You need to ensure that you review the products you are selling on your website because this will make it easy for your clients to choose and learn more about them. Use their features to ensure that you talk about their benefits, side effects, if any, and how to use them. You will avoid any unnecessary questions when you have a review of the product on your site.

Make the website personal

When addressing people on your site, you need to remember that you communicate with real people who have real problems. If the client can relate to the product, it will be easy for them to buy the product and believe that it will work in the way you tell them.  You can use personal stories from you or any other people who have used the products so that potential clients will know that this product can be trusted.

You should also personalize any message you send via email because it will relate easily to the customer. Most people do not open emails that are vague, but if you use their names in the email, they will likely be curious about its content.

Keep up with the trends

Trends keep changing, and many people are changing with them. This is why as an affiliate marketer, you need to keep up and ensure that you are not left behind. Use any new way to ensure that your clients can still reach you or know about you. The competition is high, with many people discovering affiliate marketing and its benefit, so if you are not up to date, you will fail to reach your target audience.

It would help if you thought outside the box so that you can beat the competition. Create TikTok videos, make new ways of marketing, and keep up with anything you can so that you can sell more. Remember that your aim to make it easy for your customers to find your website and order without much help so that your site can work for you and make you successful.


SEO For Affiliate Marketing: The absolute deal-maker!

SEO For Affiliate Marketing

Guess the most contagious thing in this world! No, it’s not flu. It is Passive Income. Wouldn’t you welcome inflowing bucks for something you did a year prior?

Speaking of such revenue generation sources, Affiliate Marketing tops the chart. All you have to do is market the merchant’s products and persuade your site visitors to buy them. Kudos! You’ll be earning a commission so long as your promotion bears fruit.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Neil Patel defines affiliate marketing as:

“The process of spreading  marketing and creation of products across different parties, where everyone receives a share of the sales according to their contribution.”

Is it that simple? Really!

Well, you have better luck finding sapphires than the tendency to trust in strangers. Therefore, you have to target more and more people to increase your sales. This leads us to SEO – Search Engine Optimization.

Why is SEO indispensable for Affiliate Marketing?

SEO increases your content visibility on search engine’s organic listing that generates more traffic. Ultimately, it translates into a higher conversion rate. Many affiliate marketers take SEO as optional while it stands crucial for their success.

If we only pick WordPress statistics, 24 articles are uploaded every second. Don’t ask about other content management systems working on Google and beyond.

The top five search results take away 67.6% of all CTR. You can invest six hours in developing content. But avoid 15-minute SEO, and no one will even land on it! So, now you see the importance of Search Engine Optimization for Affiliate Marketing.

Step-by-step Guide to Master SEO for Affiliate Marketing

After all, it boils down to how! Whether you’re building an affiliate site from scratch or cursing your constant failures, these six simple steps will guarantee your success.

Step 1: Know your audience.

The first and foremost duty is to pick a specific niche. You can’t write for tech-savvy and a climate activist simultaneously. Before turning to host and domain, know your audience and avoide doing these mistakes.

Strike a balance between your passion and people’s interest.

Remember, affiliate marketing is a long-term venture. You can’t skip one or two months after just starting out. And failing the first step will tempt you to do so. Thus, choose niches that excite you.

Make a list of related keywords in each one of them. Then, find out their search volume via Google Keyword Planner.

Step 2: Promote valuable products

Once you’ve made up your mind in favor of a niche, move on towards selecting products that you’ll promote. This second step is the defining moment of your whole journey.

There are generally two types of online products: tangible and virtual.

Suppose your niche is “health and fitness in teenage girls.”  Here, you’re targeting young girls who are conscious about their health. Now, you can sell them physical products such as supplements or digital ones like e-books.

We’d recommend using Clickbank for narrowing down your product search. Afterward, sign up to Amazon Associates and get affiliate links to promote.

Step 3:  Research magnetic keywords

If we have to describe SEO in one word, it would be the keyword. It is the phrase people write in their search bar. Google runs a search on all pages and presents the most relevant ones.

However, you have to do some keyword research for your affiliate products.

The bottom line is to target an exact keyword having high search volume but low competition. It is where long-tail phrases lend a helping hand.

Use Keyword Planner to find out the search volume and competition of a particular keyword. Then, get a deeper insight using Ubersuggest.

Step 4: Write detailed guides.

Where the above three steps were limited to individual aspects, the fourth one is the blend of SEO plus marketing skills. Once you have a good product and the focused keywords, it’s time to open your laptop and get started.

Marketing is not about fancy words – it is a heart-to-heart conversation. DO IT YOURSELF!

Avoid keyword stuffing because the search algorithm doesn’t work that way. In any case, write an easy-to-read article. Cover every aspect of your topic, and stay true to your readers.

Try writing >1500 words for every keyword. Google favors the information-dense contents. They tend to get higher SERP ranking, backlinks, and social media engagement.

Step 5: Add value to your content

When we suggest writing lengthy content, it doesn’t imply beating around the bush. For one, your visitors will leave your site. And for another, the search engine won’t invite you to the party either.

Bluffing sacrifices both SEO and AFFILIATE MARKETING!

Reinforce the visual appeal of your written piece. Add infographics and reliable statistics to present yourself as someone serving the customers, not money. Creating YouTube videos and Facebook posts is a huge plus in terms of customer engagement.

Step 6: ‘No follow’ the affiliate links.

Whenever you add any external link to your blog, the search engine establishes a connection. It usually strengthens SEO. In the case of paid links, however, it removes them from organic link authority.

Affiliate links are a variation of paid links since a commission is closely aligned.

That’s why it’s pertinent to add rel=”nofollow” tag to each affiliate link. For Amazon and widely popular networks, it’s added automatically.

“Even though we handle the vast majority of affiliate links appropriately, I would go ahead and just add the nofollow because you might be earning money from that,” said Google’s Matt Cutts in an interview with SMX Advanced in 2012.

You’re all set now!

For Affiliate Markets, SEO is not up for compromise. Content is the king! Its optimization to reach out to a broader audience is the coronation.

Keep in mind that off-page SEO also influences overall ranking. Your email connections, site layout and speed, featured snippets, internal linking, and guest posts can increase your affiliate conversion up to several times.

In any case, use these 6 SEO hacks for affiliate marketing. And the revenue will flow like a stream in your direction. But the eventual satisfaction of helping out your customers outscores monetary incentives.

Mistakes To Avoid In Affiliate Marketing

Mistakes To Avoid In Affiliate Marketing

Even with the ability to make more money and earn a passive income, several mistakes can cost an affiliate marketer. It is crucial to keep away from specific obvious, some not-so-obvious errors that might make you lose money or your clients when you are an affiliate marketer.

Here are some serious mistakes to avoid as an affiliate marketer:

Not building an email list

Even though some affiliate marketers avoid this, it is a big mistake because it will make it difficult for you to get to your clients, especially after purchase or click. An email list will make it easy for you to reach out to potential clients and customers with any critical information about a product or service. It is also the easiest way you can inform your clients about any promotions available for them to visit the website to take advantage of the offers.

Creating irrelevant or no content on your sites

Most people will visit your website, blog, or site to get information to make up their minds about buying a product. If there is no content on the site, it is not easy for them to decide to buy from you. And content is also crucial for SEO. Remember that you need to keep your clients engaged and sometimes entertained to also relate to you. If you do not have anything to write about at the moment, consider reviewing the products and services you are promoting to keep your readers interested.

Having a bad or ugly looking landing page

The first thing a client or potential customer will notice when they visit your site is the landing page. If it is not appealing, you may most even get the person to look at any product you are offering or read any content, no matter how interesting it might be. Make an excellent first impression by working on your landing page and ensure that it is appealing to the reader. You should also make it simple and easy to navigate so that anyone can find what they need even if they are not tech-savvy.

Not making the site mobile compliant.

Many people spend most of their time on their mobile phones and tablets. If you do not optimize your site for mobile, you will miss out on a lot of clients. Ensure that your client can click on any product from anywhere they are and proceed to buy without having to wait to get to a computer. This is because you might find clients who are too busy and find a little time like commuting and sometimes even on the toilet to look through your products.

Promoting too many products on one site

If you have a crowded list of products on your site, it will be difficult for the client to choose the right one. Sometimes, most people will go through the first three or four pages, and they will either get bored or tired. Keep your product list tight and relevant to the niche you are in so that it is easy for your customer to choose and buy the one they need.
