Are You Spending 75 of Your Time Marketing Your Affiliate Programs

Are You Spending 75% of Your Time 'Marketing Your Affiliate Programs'?   by David McKenzie

How important do you think it is to market your affiliate programs? Most would probably say it’s quite important.

I would say it is the difference between success and failure for the affiliate. The more time you spend marketing your affiliate programs the more successful you will be.

The ‘Super Affiliates’ spend 75% of their time marketing their affiliate programs. This means they only spend 25% of their time working on their affiliate programs.

Contrast this to most affiliates who spend about 10% to 20% of their time marketing their affiliate programs.

You may have heard the statistic that between 80% and 90% of all affiliates make little or no money each month from
affiliate programs. A big reason for this is LACK OF MARKETING.

Just because it’s an affiliate program does not mean you do not have to spend time marketing it.

Treat each affiliate program you belong to as if it were your own product. This will force you to concentrate more of your efforts on marketing. By thinking like the “owner” rather than the “affiliate” you will automatically focus on what is important to make the sale.

In fact, you could say you have to spend MORE TIME marketing your affiliate programs than if you were the owner of the product because not only are you trying to get people to buy a
product, you are also competing with other affiliates.

Spend more time marketing than your fellow affiliates and you will earn more money. If they are not spending time marketing and you are, who do you think is going to succeed?

When I talk about marketing affiliate programs it does not mean you have to go out and spend a whole lot of money.

There are still countless effective low cost and free marketing methods that are working very well.

Are you using the following free marketing methods?

1. Writing your own articles.

2. Using ezine ad swaps.

3. Using sig files in your emails.

To be successful with affiliate programs requires a disciplined
and consistent approach to marketing. Set aside a couple of hours each day for marketing your affiliate programs and I guarantee your monthly affiliate check will increase.

You may even become a Super Affiliate one day!
