Tips for Affiliates
to Success in Affiliate Marketing
by: Curtis Sexton
1. Join an Affiliate Program: Join programs that
interest you personally. There are affiliate programs
for almost any product or service you can think
of so do some research and find one that is right
for you. If you have a passion for your product
niche it will be a whole lot easier to stay motivated
and be successful.
2. Build your own website to promote your product:
You will need to build a website with your own domain
name (ie. homeworksolutions.biz) and pay a monthly
fee for hosting as opposed to going the free route
and sharing a domain (ie. yourname.homeworksolutions.biz)
If you don't know much about web design that's quite
ok. You will find there are lots of companies out
there who offer very affordable website design.
3. Start a reciprocal linking campaign: Start exchanging
links with other websites in your niche. You will
find lots of webmasters willing to add a link to
your website as long as you return the favor. The
more websites that link to you, the higher page
rank you will have in the search engines, therefore
leading to more traffic to your website.
4. Start your own newsletter: The newsletter can
simply consist of articles related to your products
and website. Always add a signature containing a
link to your website at the bottom of each newsletter
entry. That way when people read your articles they
can continue on to your website. If you don't want
to write your own articles, there are many webmasters
who will let you use theirs for free. Submit your
newsletter to as many websites as you can.
5. Build an Email List: Owning your own email list
is one of the most important tools you can have
as an affiliate marketer. The best way to build
your list is to buy leads, that way you don't have
to worry about getting in trouble for spamming.
Lots of companies sell quality leads (email addresses)
consisting of people who have requested information
about your products. With every lead you buy you
can in turn sign them up for your newsletter.
6. Get an Auto Responder: With an auto responder
program you can make the process of buying leads
and adding them to your newsletter completely automated.
You can save hours of time with this approach.
7. Write your own Articles: To be successful with
affiliate marketing you will eventually have to
write an article or two. This may sound a bit overwhelming
in the beginning, but after you have been building
your business for awhile you will get into it. Always
include a signature at the bottom of the article
containing your website link. Then post your article
on as many websites as you can. A search for 'article
directories' in any search engine will give you
lots of places to start.
8. Add an Article page to your website: Post all
of your articles on this page and any others you
find related to your niche. Having an article page
will add content to your website and will help with
your page rank. Search engines like Google and Yahoo
love websites with lots of relevant content.
9. Join an Online Forum: Becoming a member in a
forum is a great way to stay current with the products
in your niche. Talking with fellow entrepreneurs
will keep you motivated and help generate new ideas
as well as answer all your questions.
