5 Tips To Affiliate Marketing Success

Affiliate Marketing is something that all small business web sites do to some extent either as publishers or advertisers. Although some webmasters use affiliate programs simply to supplement their income to pay hosting fees, others earn dramatic profits by following these simple rules for better affiliate sales.

Autoresponders are incredibly valuable tools that allow you to send a timed series of email messages to those that sign up for them. Most often those autoresponders are sent through a third party provider. Some of the top providers are and

Purchase Offline Classified Ads: You can purchase space in Thrifty Nickel Ads rather cheaply. Try to find a niche that isn't overrun such as work-at-home or business opportunities. You can place your ad online, but I've found that if I can save nearly 50% if I purchase the ad space in person, or if you mail in your payment. Call them first and ask them how much the ad will cost if you mail in your payment.

Visit some of the top classified sites on the Internet. Simply do a search on Google, Yahoo or MSN, if you aren't familiar with any. Visit the work-at-home, and business sections. Write down their email addresses and simply request more information. But before you do, write your email signature as a small ad. Never attempt to sell them anything in the body of your email, this might be considered spam. Just simply ask for more information and create an enticing tag line as your email signature.

Filling a web site with content reflecting a narrowly focused product or service niche is a well known method of gaining web traffic in your area of specialty. An excellent resource that can help you determine relevant and focused areas to fill your site with is called NicheBot. They offer innovative tools to research and pinpoint market niches for your web site based on the WordTracker Database and Google.

Writing articles about your market niche is essential to gain reputation as an expert in your field. But the biggest benefit comes not just from writing those articles, but from having those articles published by other web site owners and ezine publishers. Your article gains you both reputation and links from other web sites from the resource box appended to the end of each article.

Choosing the right affiliate program is vital for your success. We don’t want to end up with lemons, right? It is not advisable to invest time and effort into something that will not yield the best return for the energy expended.

How sellable is the product? You could always ask for statistics from the affiliate program. Don’t forget that. You could demand to see the sales chart for the past few months, so that you’d know that there are people who are actually willing to purchase the product. We can safely say that an affiliate programs offering high commission rates for very sellable products is an excellent opportunity.

Most affiliate programs will provide their affiliates with tools to market with. Simply put, the more tools provided, the more chances of you making the sale.

This is because you can then save time by simply editing the provided materials to your own 'voice' instead of creating an ad from scratch. You can focus instead on the marketing. Similarly, having more tools also equate to more opportunities to get the sales message through effectively.

A factor you must pay attention to is how much you will be paid, in relation to your promotional efforts. A higher commission percentage can be a huge motivation to place higher focus on a particular product in your total portfolio.

Alternatively seek out products with a higher end pricing or those that offer residual income. You would want to profit exponentially from any effort placed.

This is one tool I have used with great success, and I highly recommend for the beginner to expert affiliate marketer.

So find a program you believe in and follow through with it. Learn all you can about it and its products. Stick with it and continue to find new ways to market it. It may take a little while, but before you know it you'll be making sales. And with each sale your confidence will rise!

And then maybe you can start to look for another program or two to promote...

The lightning strikes and the thunder cracks. Hmm… closer this time the solitary man thinks, oblivious to the disaster that was about to unfold.... Then he returns to the all too familiar layout of one of your sites. The howling of the wind and the rumble of the storm seem to disappear as he...
