Affiliate Marketing Tips – Surviving the Economic Meltdown
Okay affiliate marketers, listen up. You’ve probably noticed lately that you’re not making as many sales as you used to, that’s if you were making any sales at all. Well, it’s no secret that the world economy is having a meltdown and people are holding onto their money. Fortunately, I haven’t been hit as hard by this as others simply because I have my act together. I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for over five years and know how to drain every last drop out of the well. In this article, I am going to give you some tips that will help increase your sales during these difficult times.
Let’s start off with the most important tip of all…giving value. When you’re competing with other affiliate marketers for the public’s hard earned dollars, you have to give more than the other affiliates are willing to give. So, what I do, and this works very well, is I offer a bonus to anybody who purchases an affiliate product from me and NOT from John Doe. It doesn’t have to be the greatest thing since sliced bread but it does have to be valuable and something that will complement the product. Doing this will increase sales. I can almost guarantee it.
Another thing you can do to increase your sales during this difficult time is to spend more money. That’s right. Not less, more. See, advertising is a strange thing. The more of it you do, the more sales you make IF you’re selling a proven product. It’s just a question of the numbers. If you’re already doing PPC and your budget is $10 a day, increase it to $20 a day. You’re still going to achieve the same conversion rate so the sales will now come in faster instead of slower. Now granted, this all depends on how good the product is that you’re selling…which leads to the final tip.
Make sure what you’re selling is a proven seller. There are a lot of products out there that aren’t doing squat, either because the products are not sought after or the sales pages don’t do a good job of selling them. So make sure you have a winner on your hands and not a loser to begin with. Otherwise, you’re just throwing your money away…no matter how much you’re spending.
Believe it or not, you CAN survive this economic meltdown if you promote wisely.
To YOUR Success,
