Affiliate Marketing Tips – Don’t Get Caught Up in the Hype
This is going to strike a chord with everybody who has done any affiliate marketing at all. I’m talking about the hype surrounding all the new product launches that everybody and their great uncle just has to get involved in. Kind of reminds me of the old western movies where they’re rounding up the cattle. I always wondered why none of them ever just wandered off on their own. Well, that’s how I feel about most affiliate marketers. They’re just like cattle. Well, if you want to have any success as an affiliate marketer, cattle is the last thing you want to be. This article will explain why.
What happens when a big name marketer launches his newest product? Well, the first thing that happens is that he emails his overgrown list. We’re talking about tens of thousands of people, if not more. He tells each one of his folks about this great product that he just came out with and how it pays 75% commission and how they can make a fortune by promoting it. Faster than Clark Kent can change into his Superman costume, these people are off creating their affiliate links, getting their canned ads, and promoting this brand new product. 95% of them never make a dime.
Let’s take that last statement and try to understand why. I mean after all, if the product is any good and the big name marketer has a good reputation, these people should be able to make sales, right? So why don’t they? The reason is simple. When everybody is promoting the same product and sending out the same canned ads, nobody stands out. Selling the product becomes a crap shoot. You may or may not make a sale. And the product creator doesn’t care. It doesn’t matter to him which of his affiliates makes the sale just as long as somebody does.
So if you want to make sales as an affiliate marketer, you have to stand out. In my signature, you can discover just how to stand out from the other affiliates. I land in the top 20 of every affiliate promotion I’m in because of what I know. You can too. You just have to understand how.
So don’t get caught up in the hype…unless you want to be just another piece of beef.
To YOUR Success,
