Being in the affiliate marketing
business is not that hard now with the internet at your disposable. It is much
easier now compared to the days when people have to make use of the telephones
and other mediums of information just to get the latest updates on the way their
program is coming along.
So with technology at hand,
and assuming that the affiliate is working from home, a day in his or her life
would sound something like this…
Upon waking up and after
having breakfast, the computer is turned on to check out new developments in
the network. As far as the marketer is concerned there might be new things to
update and statistics to keep track on.
The site design has to be
revised. The marketer knows that a well-designed site can increase sign ups
from visitors. It can also help in the affiliate’s conversion rates.
That done, it is time to
submit the affiliate program to directories that lists affiliate programs. These
directories are means to attract people in joining your affiliate program. A
sure way of promoting the affiliate program.
Time to track down the sales
you are getting from your affiliates fairly and accurately. There are phone
orders and mails to track down.
See if they are new clients
checking the products out. Noting down the contact information that might be
a viable source in the future.
There are lots of resources
to sort out. Ads, banners, button ads and sample recommendations to give out
because the marketer knows that this is one way of ensuring more sales. Best
to stay visible and accessible too.
The affiliate marketer remembered
that there are questions to answer from the visitors. This has to be done quickly.
Nothing can turn off a customer than an unanswered email.
To prove that the affiliate
is working effectively and efficiently, inquiries would have to be paid more
attention on. Nobody wants to be ignored and customers are not always the most
patient of all people. Quick answer that should appear professional yet friendly
In the process of doing all
the necessities, the marketer is logged on to a chat room where he or she interacts
with other affiliates and those under that same program. This is where they
can discuss things on how to best promote their products.
There are things to be learned
and it is a continuous process. Sharing tips and advices is a good way of showing
support. There may be others out there wanting to join and may be enticed by
the discussion that is going on. There is no harm in assuming what opportunities
The newsletters and ezines
were updated days ago, so it is time for the affiliate marketer to see if there
are some new things happening in the market. This will be written about in the
marketer’s publication to be distributed to the old and new customers.
These same publications are
also an important tool in keeping up to date with the newly introduced products.
The marketer has put up a sale and promotion that customers may want to know
about. Besides, they have to keep up with the deadline of these sales written
in the publications.
It is that time to show some
appreciation to those who have helped the marketer in the promotions and sale
increase. Nothing like mentioning the persons, their sites and the process they
have done that made everything worked.
Of course, this will be published
in the newsletters. Among the more important information that have been written
The marketer still has time
to write out recommendations to those who want credible sources for the products
being promoted. There is also time to post some comments on how to be a successful
affiliate marketer on a site where there are lots of wannabees.
Two objectives done at the
same time. The marketer gets to promote the product as well as the program they
are in. Who knows, someone may be inclined to join.
Time flies. Missed lunch
but is quite contented with the tasks done. Bed time….
Ok, so this may not be all
done in a day. But then, this gives you an idea of how an affiliate marketer,
a dedicated one that is, spends the marketing day.
Is that success looming in
the distance or what?

that have been proven over years of hard work and dedication.

to work in the online affiliate marketing world of today. With these top three
marketing tips, you will be able to able to increase your sales and survive

to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together
just to save some money on web hosting. It is best to have a site focusing on
each and every product and nothing more.
Always include product reviews
on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product
can do to those who buys them. Also include testimonials from users who have
already tried the product.
Be sure that these customers
are more than willing to allow you to use their names and photos on the site
of the specific product you are marketing.
You can also write articles
highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional
page. Make the pages attractive compelling and include calls to act on the information.
Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more, even contact
you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what
the page is about and will want to find out more.
2. Offer free reports to
your readers. If possible position them at the very top side of your page so
it they simply cannot be missed. Try to create autoresponder messages that will
be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box.
According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with
Only two things can possibly
happen with the web page alone: closed sale or the prospect leaving the page
and never return again. By placing useful information into their inboxes at
certain specified period, you will remind them of the product they thought they
want later and will find out that the sale is closed. Be sure that the content
is directed toward specific reasons to buy the product. Do not make it sound
like a sales pitch.
Focus on important points
like how your product can make life and things easier and more enjoyable. Include
compelling subject lines in the email. As much as possible, avoid using the
word “free” because there are still older spam filters that dumps those kind
of contents into the junk before even anyone reading them first. Convince those
who signed up for your free reports that they will be missing something big
if they do not avail of your products and services.
3. Get the kind of traffic
that is targeted to your product. Just think, if the person who visited your
website has no interest whatsoever in what you are offering, they will be among
those who move on and never come back. Write articles for publication in e-zines
and e-reports. This way you can locate publications that is focusing on your
target customers and what you have put up might just grab their interest.
Try to write a minimum of
2 articles per week, with at least 300-600 words in length.
By continuously writing and
maintaining these articles you can generate as many as 100 targeted readers
to your site in a day.
Always remember that only
1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or get your services. If
you can generate as much as 1,000 targeted hits for your website in a day, that
means you can made 10 sales based on the average statistic.
The tactics given above does
not really sound very difficult to do, if you think about it. It just requires
a little time and an action plan on your part.
Try to use these tips for
several affiliate marketing programs. You can end maintaining a good source
of income and surviving in this business that not all marketers can do.

paychecks you will be receiving…
Top 3 Ways To Boost Your Affiliate Commissions Overnight
The ideal world of affiliate
marketing does not require having your won website, dealing with customers,
refunds, product development and maintenance. This is one of the easiest ways
of launching into an online business and earning more profits.
Assuming you are already
into an affiliate program, what would be the next thing you would want to do?
Double, or even triple, your commissions, right? How do you do that?
Here are some powerful tips
on how to boost your affiliate program commissions overnight.
1. Know the best program
and products to promote. Obviously, you would want to promote a program that
will enable you to achieve the greatest profits in the shortest possible time.
There are several factors
to consider in selecting such a program. Choose the ones that have a generous
commission structure. Have products that fit in with your target audience. And
that has a solid track record of paying their affiliate easily and on time.
If you cannot seem to increase your investments, dump that program and keep
looking for better ones.
There are thousands of affiliate
programs online which gives you the reason to be picky. You may want to select
the best to avoid losing your advertising dollars.
Write free reports or short
ebooks to distribute from your site. There is a great possibility that you are
competing with other affiliates that are promoting the same program. If you
start writing short report related to the product you are promoting, you will
be able to distinguish yourself from the other affiliates.
In the reports, provide some
valuable information for free. If possible, add some recommendations about the
products. With ebooks, you get credibility. Customers will see that in you and
they will be enticed to try out what you are offering.
2. Collect and save the email
addresses of those who download your free ebooks. It is a known fact that people
do not make a purchase on the first solicitation. You may want to send out your
message more than six times to make a sale.
This is the simple reason
why you should collect the contact information of those who downloaded your
reports and ebooks. You can make follow-ups on these contacts to remind them
to make a purchase from you.
Get the contact information
of a prospect before sending them to the vendor’s website. Keep in mind that
you are providing free advertisement for the product owners. You get paid only
when you make a sale. If you send prospects directly to the vendors, chances
are they would be lost to you forever.
But when you get their names,
you can always send other marketing messages to them to be able to earn an ongoing
commission instead of a one-time sale only.
Publish an online newsletter
or Ezine. It is always best to recommend a product to someone you know than
to sell to a stranger. This is the purpose behind publishing your own newsletter.
This also allows you to develop a relationship based on trust with your subscribers.
This strategy is a delicate
balance between providing useful information with a sales pitch. If you continue
to write informative editorials you will be able to build a sense of reciprocity
in your readers that may lead them to support you by buying your products.
3. Ask for higher than normal
commission from merchants. If you are already successful with a particular promotion,
you should try and approach the merchant and negotiate a percentage commission
for your sales.
If the merchant is smart,
he or she will likely grant your request rather than lose a valuable asset in
you. Keep in mind that you are a zero-risk investment to your merchant; so do
not be shy about requesting for addition in your commissions. Just try to be
reasonable about it.
Write strong pay Per Click
ads. PPC search engine is the most effective means of advertising online. As
an affiliate, you can make a small income just by managing PPC campaigns such
as Google AdWords and Overture. Then you should try and monitor them to see
which ads are more effective and which ones to dispose of.
Try out these strategies
and see the difference it can make to your commission checks in the shortest

you join an affiliate program. Do a little research about the choices of program
that you intend to join into. Get some answers because they will be the deciding
point of what you will be achieving later on.
Will it cost you anything
to join? Most affiliate programs being offered today are absolutely free of
charge. So why settle for those that charge you some dollars before joining.
When do they issue the commission
checks? Every program is different. Some issue their checks once a month, every
quarter, etc. Select the one that is suited to your payment time choice. Many
affiliate programs are setting a minimum earned commission amount that an affiliate
must meet or exceed in order for their checks to be issued.
What is the hit per sale
ratio? This is the average number of hits to a banner or text link it takes
to generate a sale based on all affiliate statistics. This factor is extremely
important because this will tell you how much traffic you must generate before
you can earn a commission from the sale.
How are referrals from an
affiliate’s site tracked and for how long do they remain in the system? You
need to be confident on the program enough to track those people you refer from
your site. This is the only way that you can credit for a sale. The period of
time that those people stay in the system is also important. This is because
some visitors do not buy initially but may want to return later to make the
purchase. Know if you will still get credit for the sale if it is done some
months from a certain day.
What are the kinds of affiliate
stats available? Your choice of affiliate program should be capable of offering
detailed stats. They should be available online anytime you decide to check
them out. Constantly checking your individual stats is important to know how
many impressions, hits and sales are already generated from your site. Impressions
are the number of times the banner or text link was viewed by a visitor of your
site. A hit is the one clicking on the banner or text links.
Does the affiliate program
also pay for the hits and impressions besides the commissions on sales? It is
important that impressions and hits are also paid, as this will add to the earnings
you get from the sales commission. This is especially important if the program
you are in offers low sales to be able to hit ratio.
Who is the online retailer?
Find out whom you are doing business with to know if it is really a solid company.
Know the products they are selling and the average amount they are achieving.
The more you know about the retailer offering you the affiliate program, the
easier it will be for you to know if that program is really for you and your
Is the affiliate a one tier
or two tier program? A single tier program pays you only for the business you
yourself have generated. A two tier program pays you for the business, plus
it also pays you a commission on the on the sales generated by any affiliate
you sponsor in your program. Some two-tier programs are even paying small fees
on each new affiliate you sponsor. More like a recruitment fee.
Lastly, what is the amount
of commission paid? 5% - 20% is the commission paid by most programs. .01% -
.05% is the amount paid for each hit. If you find a program that also pays for
impressions, the amount paid is not much at all. As you can see from the figures,
you will now understand why the average sales amount and hit to sale ratio is
These are just some of the
questions that needed answering first before you enter into an affiliate program.

Here's How To Avoid The 3 Most Common Affiliate Mistakes
Affiliate marketing is one
of the most effective and powerful ways of earning some money online. This program
gives everybody a chance to make a profit through the Internet. Since these
affiliate marketing programs are easy to join, implement and pays a commission
on a regular basis, more an more people are now willing in this business.
However, like all businesses,
there are lots of pitfalls in the affiliate marketing business. Committing some
of the most common mistakes will cost the marketers a large portion taken from
the profit they are making everyday. That is why it is better to avoid them
than be regretful in the end.
Mistake number 1: Choosing the wrong affiliate.
Many people want to earn
from affiliate marketing as fast as possible. In their rush to be part of one,
they tend to choose a bandwagon product. This is the kind of products that the
program thinks is “hot”. They choose the product that is in demand without actually
considering if the product appeals to them. This is not a very wise move obviously.
Instead of jumping on the
bandwagon, try top choose a product in which you are truly interested in. For
any endeavor to succeed, you should take some time to plan and figure out your
Pick a product that appeals
to you. Then do some research about that product to see if they are in demand.
Promoting a product you are more passionate about is easier than promoting one
for the sake of the earnings only.
Mistake number 2: Joining too many affiliate programs.
Since affiliate programs
are very easy to join, you might be tempted to join multiples of affiliate programs
to try and maximize the earnings you will be getting. Besides you may think
that there is nothing wrong and nothing to lose by being part of many affiliate
True, that is a great way
to have multiple sources of income. However, joining multiple programs and attempting
to promote them all at the same time will prevent you from concentrating on
each one of them.
The result? The maximum potential
of your affiliate program is not realized and the income generated will not
exactly be as huge as you were thinking initially it would. The best way to
get excellent result is by joining just one program that pays a 40% commission
at least. Then give it your best effort by promoting your products enthusiastically.
As soon as you see that it is already making a reasonable profit, then maybe
you can now join another affiliate program.
The technique is to do it
slowly but surely. There is really no need to rush into things, especially with
affiliate marketing. With the way things are going, the future is looking real
bright and it seems affiliate marketing will be staying for a long time too.
Mistake number 3: Not buying the product or using the service.
As an affiliate, you main
purpose is to effectively and convincingly promote a product or service and
to find customers. For you to achieve this purpose, you must be able to relay
to the customers that certain product and service. It is therefore difficult
for you to do this when you yourself have not tried these things out. Thus,
you will fail to promote and recommend them convincingly. You will also fail
to create a desire in your customers to avail any of what you are offering.
Try the product or service
personally first before you sign up as an affiliate to see if it is really delivering
what it promises. If you have done so, then you are one of the credible and
living testaments aware of its advantages and disadvantages. Your customers
will then feel the sincerity and truthfulness in you and this will trigger them
to try them out for themselves.
Many affiliate marketers
makes these mistakes and are paying dearly for their actions. To not fall into
the same situation they have been in, try to do everything to avoid making the
Time is the key. Take the
time to analyze your marketing strategy and check if youa re in the right track.
If done properly, you will be able to maximize your affiliate marketing program
and earn higher profits.
Using Product Recommendations To Increase Your Bottom Line
In affiliate marketing, there
are many ways in which you can increase your earnings and maintain the account
that you have worked so hard for already. Most of the techniques and tactics
can be learned easily. No need to go anywhere and any further. They are available
online, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
One of the more important
ways of increasing affiliate marketing bottom line and sale is through the use
of product recommendations. Many marketers know that this is one of the most
effective ways in promoting a certain product.
If the customers or visitors
trust you enough, then they will definitely trust your recommendations. Be very
careful in using this approach, though. If you start promoting everything by
recommendation, your credibility will actually wear thin.
This is seen especially when
recommendations are seemingly exaggerated and without much merit.
Do not be afraid to mention things that you do not like about a given product
or service. Rather than lose any points for you, this will make your recommendation
more realistic and will tend to increase your credibility.
Furthermore, if your visitors
are really interested in what you are offering, they will be more than delighted
to learn what is good about the product, what is not so good, and how the product
will benefit them.
When you are recommending
a certain product, there are some things to remember on how to make it work
effectively and for your advantage.
Sound like the true and leading
expert in your field.
Remember this simple equation:
Price resistance diminishes in direct proportion to trust. If your visitors
feel and believe that you are an expert in your niche, they are more inclined
to making that purchase. On the other hand, if you are not exuding any confidence
and self-assurance in endorsing your products, they will probably feel that
same way and will go in search of another product or service which is more believable.
How do you establish this
aura of expertise? By offering unique and new solutions they would not get anywhere
else. Show proof that what you are promoting works as promised. Display prominent
testimonials and endorsements from respected and known personalities, in related
fields of course.
Avoid hype at all costs.
It is better to sound low key and confident, than to scream and seek attention.
Besides, you would not want to sound unprofessional and have that thinking stick
to your potential customers and clients, now would you? Best to appear cool
and self-assured at the same time.
And remember; prospects are
not stupid. They are actually turning to experts and may already know the things
that you know. If you back up your claims with hard facts and data, they would
gladly put down hundreds, or even thousands worth of money to your promotions.
But if you don’t, they are smart enough to try and look at your competitors
and what they are offering.
While recommending a product,
it is also important that you give out promotional freebies. People are already
familiar with the concept of offering freebies to promoting your won products.
But very few people do this to promote affiliate products. Try to offer freebies
that can promote or even have some information about your products or services.
Before you add recommendations
to you product, it is given that you should try and test the product and support.
Do not run the risk of promoting
junk products and services. Just think how long it took you to build credibility
and trust among your visitors. All that will take to destroy it is one big mistake
on your part.
If possible, have recommendations
of products that you have 100% confidence in. Test the product support before
you begin to ensure that the people you are referring it to would not be left
high and dry when a problem suddenly arouse.
Have a look at your affiliate
market and look at the strategies you are using. You may not be focusing on
the recommendations that your products need to have. You plan of action is sometimes
not the only thing that is making your program works.
Try product recommendation
and be among those few who have proven its worth.
Easy Profits Using PPC In Your Affiliate Marketing Business
PPC is one of the four basic
types of Search Engines. PPC is also one of the most cost-effective ways of
targeted internet advertising. According to Forbes magazine, PPC or Pay Per
Click, accounts to 2 billion dollars a year and is expected to increase to around
8 billion dollars by the year 2008.
Let us take a quick look
at how PPC Search Engines work.
These engines create listings
and rate them based on a bid amount the website owner is willing to pay for
each click from that search engine. Advertisers bid against each other to receive
higher ranking for a specific keyword or phrase.
The highest bidder for a
certain keyword or phrase will then have the site ranked as number 1 in the
PPC Search Engines followed by the second and third highest bidder, up to the
last number that have placed a bid on the same keyword or phrase. Your ads then
will appear prominently on the results pages based on the dollar amount bid
you will agree to pay per click.
How do you make money by
using PPC into your affiliate marketing business?
Most affiliate programs only
pay when a sale is made or a lead delivered after a visitor has clickthrough
your site. Your earnings will not always be the same as they will be dependent
on the web site content and the traffic market.
The reason why you should
incorporate PPC into your affiliate marketing program is that earnings are easier
to make than in any other kind of affiliate program not using PPC. This way,
you will be making profit based from the clickthroughs that your visitor will
make on the advertiser’s site. Unlike some programs, you are not paid per sale
PPC can be very resourceful
of your website. With PPC Search Engines incorporated into your affiliate program,
you will be able to profit from the visitor’s who are not interested in your
products or services. The same ones who leave your site and never comes back.
You will not only get commissions
not only from those who are just searching the web and finding the products
and services that they wanted but you will be able to build your site’s recognition
as a valuable resource. The visitors who have found what they needed from you
site are likely to come back and review what you are offering more closely.
Then they will eventually come back to search the web for other products.
This kind of affiliate program
is also an easy way for you to generate some more additional revenues. For example,
when a visitor on your site does a search in the PPC Search Engine and clicks
on the advertiser bided listings, the advertisers’ account will then be deducted
because of that click. With this, you will be compensated 30% to 80% of the
advertisers’ bid amount.
PPC is not only a source
of generating easy profits; it can also help you promote your own site. Most
of the programs allow the commissions received to be spent for advertising with
them instantly and with no minimum earning requirement. This is one of the more
effective ways to exchange your raw visitors for targeted surfers who has more
tendencies to purchase your products and services.
What will happen if you when
you integrate PPC into your affiliate program?
PPC usually have ready-to-use
affiliate tools that can be easily integrated into your website. The most common
tools are search boxes, banners, text links and some 404-error pages. Most search
engines utilize custom solutions and can provide you with a white-label affiliate
program. This enables you, using only a few lines of code, to integrate remotely-hosted
co-branded search engine into your website.
The key benefits? Not only
more money generated but also some extra money on the side. Plus a lifetime
commissions once you have referred some webmaster friends to the engine.
Think about it. Where can
you get all these benefits while already generating some income for your site?
Knowing some of the more useful tools you can use for your affiliate program
is not a waste of time. They are rather a means of earning within an earning.

you can use PPC search engines into your affiliate program than miss out on
a great opportunity to earn more profits.
