What Successful Affiliate Marketers Do, Are There Secrets?

Apr 15, 2008
Affiliate Marketing is one of the best ways to make money online. However, like everything else you do, there is a learning curve and knowledge is powerful. Unfortunately you do not get anything for free, and perhaps the best part of that equation is that no one will apply themselves nearly as hard if they don't have their own hard earned cash in on the deal. Affiliate Marketing is a bit like MLM and some other aspects of marketing

While you don't have to spend half of your income on products in Affiliate Marketing to be successful, "time" becomes a valuable commodity no matter how you look at it. And that is true no matter what you decide to do to earn an extra income or replace the one you have. If you don't have the time, don't start. I have heard of stories of how some folks get to the top and it isn't worth it unless nothing else matters to you.

I get the ads in my inbox that go something like this: "beach bum rakes in $236,943 in 30 days" or Deaf Nerd makes $246,359 after doing just one thing to his ad campaigns. It is almost like reading the National Enquirer when you pass through the check out stand at the super market. But who can blame them for trying.

Marketing is the key word here, and how affective you are at marketing depends on how successful you are at selling your self. Unfortunately It comes with a price. The price you pay depends on two things, your willingness to fork over big bucks for advertising by way of PPC or other using classifieds or large print articles that start at around $2,500 a month.

Affiliate Marketing and MLM share other things in common. With both you can use auto-responders, mail out post cards, Fax Blast and the list goes on.

One of the things you can do as an affiliate that you can not do with some products or services is make yourself known from one corner of the Internet globe to the next, and I mean that literally. A classified ad is only good for a few days and then it is gone. Unless you are saving your old magazines, how long do you think a half page ad at $3,500.00 is going to bring you results?

Do these two things to be successful as an affiliate marketer: 1) Create your own web site of the affiliate product you are going to promote. 2) Submit articles promoting your website, this will increase your rankings with back links and supply you with targeted traffic

Information overload is the number one killer of sales in affiliate marketing. I mean we are talking about the site that takes you most of 30 minutes to read and leaves you feeling like you just got done reading a big fat blank when you were done reading it. It kind of reminds me of the guys who are trying to dazzle you with brilliance and have set out to baffle you with BS in the event that the first option didn't work out too well. You are selling something you believe in, or you are selling something that you believe your potential customer wants. Keep IT Simple.
