Affiliate Programs, Lessons Of Success That Every Newbie Should Know

Aug 17, 2007
Have you had some success with affiliate programs? You have now reached the point where you would like to take your mediocre online success to the next level? You are now rightfully searching for diversification.

Lets go directly to the heart of the matter. If you are an affiliate marketer and you are funneling traffic directly to your affiliate link, then you are doing it all wrong. Do not feel bad, it is a common mistake. Not only that, you are missing out on a huge income potential. A better way to set up your campaign is to set up a squeeze page.

So, what is a squeeze page? It is a page of focused content about the specific service which you are marketing. It includes a form requesting the name and email address of the person viewing your page.

If the person is interested in hearing more about your product or service, they will fill in the form and click submit. They will then be directed to a thank you page which includes a link to your specific product or service.

Never just direct them to your homepage where they will have to search through all of the products and services you are selling. Direct them to a link where they will see more information about the product that got them interested in visiting your site.

Nothing turns customers off quicker than directing them to some general website that sells a bunch of stuff. Please read the last sentence again, it is a vital piece of information.
Keep this in mind also. Every product or service that you promote must have a separate squeeze page. This is the key to successful online marketing.

You should start out working only one affiliate program at a time. Create your marketing campaign. Then focus on a couple of products to promote through squeeze pages. Another way to market your goods is to design your own website or blog.

For those who do not know, a blog is a website that contains journal posts which are updated frequently. You can create a blog around any topic you choose. Then you can sign up for affiliate programs which correspond to your topic of interest. Get your own domain name for your website.

You should always create posts on your blog and ping it every time you submit a new post. This simply means that you will request other sites to be notified that you have updated your site. Your site will then be crawled by indexing spiders.

After setting up your blog, create posts which contain a link to your website or an affiliate link which is relevant to the topic of your post. The benefits here are two fold. First, you are advertising without selling, and second, you are increasing the number of links to your site which will increase your rank on search engines.
