4 Tips Affiliate Marketers Should Use To Be Successful Online

Mar 9, 2008
A lot of Affiliate Marketers are looking for the easy way out. They're looking to find that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow the quickest way they can so they can make that big paycheck. Truth be told it takes good old fashioned hard work and good marketing techniques that have been around for years to make a living in affiliate marketing.

Here are four tips that will help an affiliate marketer make it today in this increasingly competitive world of affiliate marketing.

1. Go out and purchase a domain name that relates specifically to each product you will be promoting. This will be used for your pre-sales page. If you're promoting a product on Widgets then use that as your domain name. Single word domains are very difficult to get now but at least try to incorporate the word Widgets into the domain name somehow.

2. It's best if you actually have tried the product with some success, or at the very least read about it so you can give an accurate review. You don't want to be promoting something you know little about to your customers just to make a fast buck. You will lose the trust and respect of your customers very quickly operating your affiliate marketing business in this manner.

3. I know you are trying to make a sale but the facts are that you have to stick this offer in front of your potential customers face 7 times before they will make a purchase. Those are just the cold hard facts. How are you going to do that if you just show them your pre-sales page one time, they don't buy, and then they head for the hills.

Easy! You're going to have an opt-in form on the web page. Preferably above the fold where it sticks out like a sore thumb. If you don't you will be leaving a lot of money on the table. Make sure you give them a bone for giving up their name and email address. Some kind of report, an ebook, a 5-day email course, or anything of great value to make them feel they are getting something for giving you their personal information.

Remember, I said it takes 7 times on average for a subscriber to see an offer before they become a customer. To do this you will need an autoresponder where you can send follow up messages that promote your affiliate product.

4. What about Traffic? If you don't have people visiting your site then the first three things in this list are worthless. There are many ways to get traffic to your site but the one I recommend above all others is article writing. This is a surefire way to make sure you get targeted traffic because you're writing about Widgets. If your selling Widgets you're not going to write articles on Baseball are you?

If you can submit 10 good articles a week for 10 weeks, that will give you 100 articles in all. That will give you all the traffic you will need to make a steady income. Not just for today, but possibly for years to come. I'm not saying you are going to strike it rich but you should be making some good spending money.

Now all you have to do to keep your affiliate marketing business afloat is go out and find another product to promote and do steps 1 through 4 again.
