It took me forever to figure out how the blockchain works.
It’s embarrassing. I thought it was kind of an annoying fad until the realization struck me that it’s ‘digital private property’.
For some reason that term really struck me and I could begin to envision its potential.
I finally watched a couple YouTube videos and developed a working understanding of how the blockchain works.
Obviously, I’ve known that there’s a HUGE affiliate opportunity here. I never pursued it because the keywords are super, super competitive.
The market is massive.
For example: as a basketball nut, I was pretty mortified that the Lakers just sold naming rights to the Staples Center to Crypto.com for $700 million!
Low Competition Keywords & Bad Data
I’ve really been diving into low-competition keywords recently.
It turns out, you can actually get solid traffic in super competitive niches targeting keywords that get under 100 searches a month.
Ahrefs and other tools just aren’t accurate when the numbers get granular.
The AuthorityHacker guys recently did a video showcasing how to rank in competitive niches without link building:
Here’s the jump link where they discuss the strategy
The strategy involves targeting extremely low (sub 100/month) competition keywords, banking on their actually being much more search volume than meets the eye.
Plus, you’ll end up ranking for ancillary, related searches.
So, I took a look at some of the top crypto keywords in Ahrefs:
Low Competition Crypto Keywords
This list of crypto keywords contains a lot of pretty obscure stuff…
But it’s a great way to enter into the lucrative crypto market.
You can identify common themes- maybe you specialize in a particular coin. Maybe you start a general crypto site and just target ALL the keywords.
Maybe it’s a ‘news’ site and you keep it up to date with latest pricing and breaking news type content.
What I’d Do
- Get a crypto expired domain: check out how I do this with Spamzilla
- I’d build out a mindmap of keywords using MindMeister to organize my site
- Begin creating content using HireWriters or UpWork writers
- I’d optimize the content with Frase
- I’d run a popup advertising a popular crypto affiliate offer using ConvertBox
- Over time, begin hyper-targeting your popup offers to particular URLs
Best Crypto Affiliate Offers
There are tons of crypto offers. I’d experiment with running different offers across my crypto site. Here are a few:
- Binance Affiliate Program
- Coinbase Affiliate Program
- Coinmama Affiliate Program
- Changelly Affiliate Program
- LocalBitcoins Affiliate Program
- Trezor Wallet Affiliate Program
- Ledger Wallet Affiliate Program
- CryptoTrader.Tax Affiliate Program
- eToro Affiliate Program
ConvertBox lets you easily run affiliate popups across your content. You can easily segment your popups by keywords in the URL.
And what I really like about ConvertBox is that it makes split-testing popups extremely easy. Here’s a look at one of my split tests:
Once you start seeing one version winning, you can duplicate the campaign and start a new split test- very simple!
To start, I’d probably run the most popular offer across all the content.
Over time, if a particular page is getting a lot of traffic, I’d customize the popup to that page.
For example, if I’m ranking for a keyword that teaches ‘how to mine for crypto’, I could link to a Fiverr course teaching crypto mining.Over time, you can begin segmenting your popups to increase the CTR and conversion.
Writing this, I’m almost tempted to start a crypto site myself…
It’s a great way to diversify from Amazon and enter into a still-emerging market with near infinite traffic and monetization potential.
