The Best New Way To Boost Your Affiliate Commissions Overnight & 5 Other Great Tips

Mar 15, 2008
The ideal world of affiliate marketing does not require having your own website, dealing with customers, refunds, product development and maintenance. This is one of the easiest ways of launching into an online business and earning more profits.

Assuming you have signed up for an affiliate program, what would be the next thing you would want to do? Make a commission, double, or even triple, your commissions, right? So, how do you do that?

Here are some powerful tips on how to boost your affiliate program commissions overnight.

1. Use Viral PDF reports - For me these are the most powerful way of ramping up commissions. If you take nothing else from this article learn to understand the power of these as they will transform your business. You can grab an example of a great viral report by following my resource link at the end of the article. You'll be blown away.

2. Know the best program and products to promote. Obviously, you would want to promote a program that will enable you to achieve the greatest profits in the shortest possible time.

There are several factors to consider in selecting such a program. Choose the ones that have a generous commission structure (I would say at least $30) with gravity between 60 & 120 - this means it's popular with affiliates but not ultra competitive as some programs are. I would suggest you have little chance of making money when gravity is 300 plus as the market is saturated.

There are thousands of affiliate programs online which gives you the reason to be picky. You want to select the best to avoid losing your advertising dollars.

2. Build your list. It is a known fact that people do not make a purchase on the first solicitation. You may want to send out your message more than six times to make a sale. Also your list will be your most valuable asset in building your affiliate marketing business. I read the other day that each person on your list is worth $1 per month in revenue. Get a list of 10,000 and that's $10,000 per month for doing very little.

Get the contact information of a prospect before sending them to the vendor's website. Keep in mind that you are providing free advertisement for the product owners. You get paid only when you make a sale. If you send prospects directly to the vendors, chances are they would be lost to you forever.

But when you get their names, you can always send other marketing messages to them to be able to earn an ongoing commission instead of a one-time sale only.

4. Publish an online newsletter or Ezine. It is always best to recommend a product to someone you know than to sell to a stranger. This is the purpose behind publishing your own newsletter. This also allows you to develop a relationship based on trust with your subscribers.

This strategy is a delicate balance between providing useful information with a sales pitch. If you continue to write informative editorials you will be able to build a sense of reciprocity in your readers that may lead them to support you by buying your products.

5. Ask for higher than normal commission from merchants. If you are already successful with a particular promotion, you should try and approach the merchant and negotiate a higher percentage commission for your sales.

If the merchant is smart, he or she will likely grant your request rather than lose a valuable asset in you. Keep in mind that you are a zero-risk investment to your merchant; so do not be shy about requesting for addition in your commissions. Just try to be reasonable about it.

6. Write strong pay Per Click ads. PPC search engine is an effective means of advertising online. As an affiliate, you can make a small income just by managing PPC campaigns such as Google AdWords and Yahoo AdCenter. Then you should try and monitor them to see which ads are more effective and which ones to dispose of. Bear in mind that you really need 100 clicks before you can determine the effectiveness of any campaign.

7. If you didn't get beforehand use Viral PDF reports. These turn on the potential for multiple affiliate income streams and have a long life.

The first time I got the power of this concept it changed my whole philosophy about internet marketing and how to make a living.
