Affiliate Marketing or as my coach says “Daylight Robbery” is one of the best ways to leverage all the hard work you have been putting into to nurturing your list to earn some cash.
If you are looking to make money online, you should certainly think about affiliate marketing. This is arguably the best and easiest way to be able to sell something online because it requires very little work on your part.
People will create the product and your job is to simply sell it. You will be the creators sales person and you will get a good percentage from the purchase. A lot of affiliate marketers will give about 50% and this is a great way to make extra money online.
The nice thing about these affiliate programs is that the products simply sell themselves. All you have to do is find the customers and try to get them to buy the product. In order to do this, you will need to find a way to present the product and to help convince them to buy it. Whether it is through a blog, video or an article, you will need to find a way to get some leads and to convert them into buyers.
* Sign up to become an affiliate , some places to find, good, sound products are:
* Look for products which have steady sales, pages convert well and commission payments are good – 50% and over.
* You will receive an affiliate link that’s unique to you and used to track your sales with the promoter.
* Drive traffic to the Sales Page. This can be done in quite a number of ways:
- Email your list
- Do a product review on your blog and include your affiliate link
- Write some articles and include your link in the resource or signature area and posts these in article marketing directories and forums.
- Post on your facebook, twitter and google accounts
* Once you become more established you can sweeten the deal for your subscribers by offering a bonus for purchasing your recommended product.
* If you can purchase the product or request a review copy, as it will then allow you to speak honestly about the benefits.
* Never use the marketing material provided – simply use it for inspiration and write your own. Remember you are one of hundreds who maybe promoting the same thing and you want to stand out from the crowd so YOU make the sale.
