Tips for Affiliates
How To Increase
Your Affiliate Commissions
by: Lawrence Deon
There are literally countless ways to advertise
your affiliate links. The real trick to affilliate
marketing though is winning the clicks to conversions
Now, since your not in direct control of the conversion
process you only need to concern yourself with identifying
top selling products and where to advertise them.
Identiying top sellers through the Click Bank marketplace
is a no brainer... they're listed in order of conversions.
Marketing other merchant's products through Click
Bank can be a very lucrative business. The only
question remains... where else can I promote affiliate
products other than my own web site?
The following are just a few of a multitude of examples
that you might consider.
Participate in chat rooms related to the product
you're reselling. Start a conversation with a person
without trying to sell to them. Later on, while
you are chatting, mention the product you're reselling.
Creating a free ebook with the advertisement and
link to your affiliate web site page can produce
really great results. The subject of the free ebook
should draw your target audience in to down-load
it. Also submit it to some free ebook directories.
My personal recommendation if you want to be a serious
affiliate marketer is to start your own affiliate
program directory. Simply join a large number of
affiliate programs and list them all in a directory
format on your web site. Then just advertise your
free affiliate program directory. You can even accept
Write your own affiliate program ads. If all the
other affiliates use the same ads you do, that doesn't
give you an edge or "distinction" over
your competition. So consider using a different
ad to give yourself an advantage over all the other
Use a personal endorsement ad. Only use one if you've
actually bought the product or service for the affiliate
program. Tell people what kind of benefits and results
you've received using the product.
Advertise the product you're reselling in your signature
file... and always use a signature file. Use an
attention getting headline and a good reason for
them to visit your affiliate site. Make sure your
signature file doesn't go over 5 lines.
Join a web ring. It should attract the same type
of people that would be interested in buying the
product you're reselling. You could also trade links
on your own with other related web sites.
Participate on web discussion boards. Post your
comments, answer other people's questions, and ask
your own questions. Include your affiliate text
link under each message you post.
Create a free ezine. Use your ezine to advertise
the affiliate programs you've joined. Submit your
ezine to online ezine directories and promote it
on your web site.
Start a private web site. Use it as a free bonus
if people buy the product you resell. You could
also allow people to join for free and you could
advertise the affiliate program you've joined.
You might consider purchasing an opt-in list or
promoting your affiliate links through you monthly
or weekly newsletter.
Another powerful way for you to promote your affiliate
products is to list your affiliate link in Pay per
click search engines or sponsored links!
My personal favorite is Niche PPC search engines.
I've collected over 25,000 dollars of free PPC advertising.
When I join an affiliate program I list my affiliate
link in a Niche PPC engine!
You'll undoubtedly find many more ways to promote
your affiliate links but the point I'm making is
the more you do the better your affilliate conversion
rates will be.
