Aug 31, 2008
If you are looking for several pointers to give you a boost in the profitable business of affiliate marketing, you will want to perk up for this article. Specifically, we'll discuss identifying which markets will be worth your time, how to capture your markets contact information to enable you to further market to them, and how to drive traffic to your website.

After reading this article, you will be able to easily break into, and dominate nearly any market.

First off, you must identify and become familiar with your market. If you aren't an expert in the field you are marketing in, then why would your audience buy from you? You must also identify the problems that your market faces, and you must come up with solutions to these problems that your audience wants.

Next, you must capture your customers contact information through an opt-in list. When a customer comes to your website for the first time, he is, in effect, meeting you for the first time. One or two customers may buy from you from time to time, but you won't see and ground-breaking results until you build a relationship with your visitors. Write several e-mails and send them to your visitors to establish yourself as an expert in your field. After you have done this, your audience will be much more likely to pull cash out of their wallet when you recommend a product to them.

Finally, you must drive traffic to your website. Even if you have an award-winning website/sales page, it won't do you a bit of good if you don't have any visitors. Traffic generation is where most people fall short because it is an action-oriented process. You need to either work for it, or pay for advertising. Write articles and post them on article directories. Make videos and post them on video websites such as YouTube.

Using Internet "hubs" such as Blogger, Squidoo, Hubpages and LiveJournal, create blogs on your topic. Update these blogs frequently with relevant content. When posting to these blogs, make sure to your content is worthwhile to your visitors. Creating spammy blogs with worthless posts isn't going to help drive traffic to your website. Rather, it may hurt your websites credibility. From these blogs, link back to your main web-page. Not only will this help drive traffic to your website, it will increase your websites ranking in search engines and your websites PageRank.

Affiliate marketing is responsible for thousands of Internet millionaires, but these Internet millionaires met with nothing but failure until they began applying what we just discussed. They identified their target audience, they identified a problem their target audience faced, and they discovered and sold a solution to this problem. They than captured their audiences contact information to allow them to further market to them, and they drove massive amounts of traffic to their website.

Thousands have already done this, now it's your turn to give this a try. There is no reason for you to wait, so apply these methods today, and enjoy the benefits tomorrow!
