Online Affiliates: Tips and Tricks on the Internet Affiliate Trade

Aug 17, 2007
There are two main things you have to learn when operating an online affiliate business. One is how to generate leads and the other is how to qualify leads. Master these two skills and everything will follow.

One of the first things you must understand about the internet business is that it is primarily about the numbers specifically, the number of people who enter your site. If you stop to think about it, why do you think sites such as Google or Yahoo! are the most successful? It's because they have millions, if not billions of people that enter their sites regularly. With that sort of audience, it simply is not difficult to sell, no matter what product you are offering.

You probably cannot aspire to get the level of traffic that the internet behemoths get, but you can certainly do quite well for yourself nevertheless. If you can get even just a five thousand people into your site each month, you can consider your site-building efforts a success. In fact, if you can get that many people into your site on a regular basis, you will probably earn as much money from affiliate programs as you do a network marketing program.

Here are two things you can do to get started with your affiliate online business:

First, you must learn how to generate leads. You need to have a web site and learn the strategies to get people in there. You can provide related content, swap links with merchant partners or friends, submit your site to search engines, publish an e-zine or a newsletter and overall just simply begin to build a subscriber list, which will be your future customer base. You can also try paying other people to advertise your site or paying leads companies for some of their subscriber lists.

Second, qualify your leads. Try to spend time with only those customers who are likely to be of help to you and your business. If you run an affiliate online business, this should be less of a problem, as long as you have created a site that it related to your online affiliate venture. If you have succeeded in creating a site that is interesting, it will almost follow that the people who visit it will be interested in what you have to say about a business opportunity.

Internet statistics show that only around 2-4% of people who visit a site will click on a link that will make money for the website's owner. That already-small number shrinks further to 1% when it comes to those who will actually buy a product. This means that the more people you can entice to visit your site, the more money you will make.

Obviously, what you want to accomplish with your site is to reach as much people as you can, letting them know about the specific business opportunity that is available through you. The more people you can inform about your affiliate opportunity, the higher the chances of you gaining new recruits or selling products.
