Affiliate Marketing Tips: 4 Things Every Internet Marketer Should Do Each Day
Even before I got involved in affiliate marketing and had my first business selling carpets, I realised how important routine is in my life. There are 4 things that I do every day, no matter what. I know that these 4 habits set me up for success on that day and in the long run. In this article I’m going to share with you what they are and why you should do them – no matter what.
Spend 10 minutes meditating. I don’t like to start my day in a rush. I know through experience that it will just rub me up the wrong way and I won’t be able to perform at my best. So each morning, I spend 10 minutes thinking about how the day will go and what I need to do. If I devote these ten minutes to really focusing positively on my day, then it will go even better than I hoped it would.
Check bank accounts. Each and every day I check my cash flow situation before I get going. I want to know what arrived during the night, and whether there are any bills for me to pay. No matter what my situation is, or how much money I have in the bank – I still check where I stand currently. If you are new to affiliate marketing – it’s even more essential that you do this. If you haven’t had the opportunity to build up some savings, then it will be of prime importance for you. You don’t want to get caught out with any subscriptions, web hosting or services bills arriving unexpectedly when you had a plan to use the money elsewhere.
Traffic generation. This has to be one of the most important tasks for any affiliate marketing professional. If you want people to buy your products, then you’ll be wanting people to know that they are there. Quite often I’ll assign myself an hour on Monday to blog commenting, then on Tuesday I’ll write a few articles and submit them to the article directories. Wednesday I’ll visit a few forums to make some comments and build links through the use of my forum profile bio box. Then on Thursday I’ll write some posts for Hubpages or Squidoo to build some links. Friday will be spent on writing blogs posts off my site.
Product strategy. Visit the affiliate marketing sites to see which new products they have. Each day you should be looking at the strategy of your sites. Which products do you feel would offer your visitors value and the opportunity to make some income? Prepare for the next day. I like to start my day early and get a handful of tasks under-wraps by 11 o’clock so that I can enjoy my morning coffee with the newspaper. I couldn’t do this without preparing on the day before. I’ll make a list and know exactly what my game plan is for the next day before I retire from my desk.
