Top Ten Tips for Affiliates

Affiliate Marketing- An Introduction to those who are new to the line!


Affiliate marketing is a type of performance-based marketing in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts.

The industry has four core players: the merchant (also known as ‘retailer’ or ‘brand’), the network (that contains offers for the affiliate to choose from and also takes care of the payments), the publisher (also known as ‘the affiliate’), and the customer.

The market has grown in complexity, resulting in the emergence of a secondary tier of players, including affiliate management agencies, super-affiliates and specialized third party vendors.

Affiliate marketing overlaps with other Internet marketing methods to some degree, because affiliates often use regular advertising methods. Those methods include organic search engine optimization (SEO), paid search engine marketing (PPC – Pay Per Click), e-mail marketing, content marketing and in some sense display advertising.

On the other hand, affiliates sometimes use less orthodox techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services offered by a partner.

Affiliate marketing is commonly confused with referral marketing, as both forms of marketing use third parties to drive sales to the retailer. However, both are distinct forms of marketing and the main difference between them is that affiliate marketing relies purely on financial motivations to drive sales while referral marketing relies on trust and personal relationships to drive sales.

Affiliate marketing is frequently overlooked by advertisers. While search engines, e-mail, and website syndication capture much of the attention of online retailers, affiliate marketing carries a much lower profile. Still, affiliates continue to play a significant role in e-retailers’ marketing strategies.

Tip Number One:

Choose an affiliate program that best suits your website or blog content.

Tip Number Two:

Don’t spam social media networking sites with your affiliate links.

Tip Number Three:

Choose wisely before joining an affiliate program because you would end up wasting your time and energy working for nothing.

Tip Number Four:

You need to pull enormous crowd to your blog for which your site has to be “Content-Rich“.

Tip Number Five:

Use shortened links to make your affiliate links not-so-obvious, ELSE you might end up losing followers and fans.

Tip Number Six:

Promote products with maximum revenue generation in the form of commissions.

Tip Number Seven:

Facebook though a best platform to promote, as it imbibes html codes and iframe syntax, in my opinion, twitter brings you more web traffic and in turn affiliate clicks.

Tip Number Eight:

You have to understand that it is not wise to fill the web page with too much of affiliate clutter, as it might work the otherway round. Yes, it will be a traffic driver out of your website or a blog.

Tip Number Nine:

The best way is to experiment with affiliate mix and match combination and Google Ad sense is by far the best as it sends suitable ads that matches your content.

Tip Number Ten:

Patience is the key to success. If somebody wants more idea on affiliate marketing, kindly contact me at managementguru.net@gmail.com

This month the discussion is all about PASSIVE INCOME through Affiliate Marketing, Info Products, Online Training, Ebooks, CD’s and DVD’s.

5 WAYS TO GET PAID MULTIPLE TIMES FOR THE SAME WORK

5 ways to get paid for the same work

Here are five ways you can move from producing active income to producing passive income:

  1. Could you turn your expertise into a product? Yes, you are an expert. There are things you know or know how to do that you take for granted. You assume every one knows what you know. They don’t. Other people would happily pay you for your knowledge.
  2. Could you turn a series of blog posts or podcasts into an e-book or bookPeople will pay for the convenience of having your content all in one place. Plus, you can incorporate insights you get from reader feedback and take the content to the next level.
  3. Could you turn your coaching or consulting into productsWhen you find yourself providing the same advice over and over again, it’s a candidate for turning it into a product or series of products.
  1. Could you turn a speech into a productYou can record it on video or even audio then turn that into a CD, DVD, or online file you sell. You can add additional value (both perceived and real) by including a transcript and a study guide.
  2. Could you turn a live event into an online training experience? Obviously, you will need to start by recording the event. Then you can turn it into modules with workbooks, transcripts, or other ancillary material and deliver it via a platform like Kajabi.com.

The reason passive income is better is because it scales. It works while you are doing something else—like sleeping! You are not limited by your available time.

AUTHENTIC WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR AFFILIATE PRODUCT SALES

Here are few proven ways to learn the art of selling. Use them to sell your affiliate products like the affiliate marketing professionals.

1. Focus on Benefits, not Features.

Do you think we all buy products for their features? No. We all buy for the benefits they provide us.

Great selling products mainly focus on benefits, not the features. Next time when you are promoting (or creating) an affiliate product, focus on how it can help your readers instead of the features it provides. This is one of the simplest ways to find the greatness of any product.

Ask yourself “who benefits” from the affiliate products you are going to promote. If you have desired target audience who is searching for ways to find solutions, and if you promote the RIGHT affiliate product that suits their needs, you can increase your affiliate sales.

2.Listen To Your Audience, They Will Listen To You

While it’s not only important to focus on benefits but you also need to listen to your readers and customers. After all, they are the ones who buy your stuff, it’s not possible to make more sales without their trust and help.

Ask them what they really want. Read other blogs in your industry and find out the top bloggers in your niche to analyze the products they are selling. That way you will be able to rapidly increase your customer gain, support and sales.

stand out from the crowd

Before selling any affiliate product on your websites, buy it first. Or request the affiliate product vendor for a free copy, then  try it by yourself. Once you start using the product, you will better understand the pros and cons of it.

Promote the affiliate products only if you are satisfied. That way you will be able to give strong reasons through your product reviews to increase your sales.

Asking The Right Question Is The Answer

“Every sale has five basic obstacles: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, no trust.” – Zig Ziglar

3. Stop Selling, Start Helping

sell advertising

Most successful affiliate marketers know one thing they help people rather than pitching hard their products to make more money. You will hardly make money by selling products without knowing your audience pulse.

There are thousands of successful affiliate marketers who are using affiliate products to make a living from online. The best example is Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income, he generates around 50,000 dollars each month by promoting very few products like bluehost. He’s the true example of how we can make more affiliate sales by building strong relationships with readers.

The more helpful you are with your products, the more sales you can make. Give your readers what they really want. Your readers are constantly looking for solutions to their problems and you can gain more sales if you find the right affiliate programs to solve their problems.

4. Increase Your Website Search Traffic

create unique content

Organic traffic is the lifeblood for any profitable website that’s using affiliate products to make money. Without the help of search engines, you can’t earn money from affiliate marketing. Learn to optimize your websites for certain keywords to increase your website traffic from search engines like Google.

It’s not easy to get the top results for few buyer keywords though but you can expect great flow of search traffic once you start producing great contents around them.
