5 Surefire Secrets to Increase Residual Affiliate Program Income

May 22, 2008
1) Promote quality products that offer high value

The first rule does not only affect residual commission products, but also applies to any affiliate products you're promoting.

Remember, it is the benefits your referrals receive to warrant them to continue investing in their recurring products.

2) Squeeze more money from closed-door affiliate programs.

Closed-door affiliate programs are those which require you to be their customers to be their affiliates. You are not going to be charged an arm and a leg to join; you just need to find the qualified ones to join.

Here's something you probably don't know about closed-door affiliate programs. They are generally to convert better!

That's because you get lower chances of "getting crashed"- Ouch, another marketer's promoting the same product to your prospects!

There's also less chance for commission pickpockets to steal your affiliate commissions by simply replacing your affiliate links with theirs, because it's closed-door affiliate program.

"But you're kidding me! It cost me money to join an affiliate program?!"

Well, many open-door affiliate programs pay you less (For example, they may not pay you on backend sales) or not convert as well as the closed-doors, so this all balances out.

In life it's hard to break the "sowing / reaping" principle, the "you get what you pay for" rule.

3) Pick out services that existing customers unlikely to stop their recurring subscriptions

Impossible? Well, I'll show you some. Most products of this kind are technical related services.

As you may notice, I promote a service that can help your sites rank well in Google. Each of the sites you want to rank gets 250 "one-way" backlinks, which will have a great impact on search engine rankings, especially for Google.

What if the member stops the recurring payment? The "one-way" backlinks will get disappeared the day his account expires.

Another good example is a nice link trace tool I promote, which can cloak affiliate links, track sign ups & sales conversions.

Think about it. When people got all their cloaked affiliate links spread on the Internet, do you consider they will ever think of canceling the service and make all their links invalid?

4) Bonus bribery strategy

This strategy is so simple but works. Offer your prospects some bonuses if they sign up under you rather than others!

How many resale rights products do you have in your hard disk? I guess dozens of, hmm? Just pick out the ones that related to the recurring products you're promoting.

Ask your referrals to provide you their payment receipts and offer them your resale products bonuses to download.

5) Help your referrals to benefit more!

After some time of your hard promotion, you probably get quite a few referred recurring customers. And as you may noticed, many of these recurring affiliate programs allow you to contact with your referrals. Make use of this powerful feature! Introduce yourself to them, share your tips, make friends with them and get them stay longer for their subscriptions.

It's not as hard as you think - show your personal experience with that recurring product, how you take advantage of it, how you benefit from it. Your referral will be truly thankful to you for helping them and more loyal.
