How to Make Millions in Affiliate Marketing
This article is going straight into the meat. So how can you make millions in affiliate marketing? Why some of the affiliates out there can make tons of money while most of them are struggling in making their first sale? The answer is obvious, it is the way how you present your affiliate products to your prospects that matters.
A successful affiliate will not straight away come up with a sales pitch for their visitors who first landed on their website. Successful affiliates know that in order to make a sale, they have to provide the value, so that they will gain the credibility and trust to turn their visitors into buyers. Doing business in the internet is exactly the same as doing business offline. Just that the medium is different.
In the world of internet, we present our business through words. So the first thing you need to do is this, provide good quality content for your visitors. Of course, you need to have a website to do so. If you don’t have a website, how can you tell your visitors how generous and how great you are? You have to understand that the content you provide works as the pre-sell process for your visitors. Your content is going to warm them up and open their mind into the buying frame.
That is why people often say that content is king. Your job as an affiliate is not to sell, your job as an affiliate is to open your prospects mind so that they are more ready to buy when they reach your merchant’s website. It is the job of your merchant to sell, not you. Just take an affiliate as a promoter in shopping centre, a promoter did not sell, they introduce you about their company’s products, they tell you what you should do to solve your problems. It is the same in affiliate marketing.
However, many people are still doing this mistake. They thought that they should sell because all they can see is the money. If you are not providing any values to your prospects, they will not become your customers. When you build a website full of selling effort, you are just like a stranger approaching someone and trying to sell him or her something. Remember this, they do not know you and why must they buy from you?
The main point here is that, they are not in the ‘ready-to-buy’ mindset yet. This is why most of the affiliates are doing, and that is why they are struggling in making sales. If you want to earn millions from your affiliate business today, you have to understand your prospects. Put yourself in the shoe of your prospects, stimulate what they are thinking. The moment you found what their problem is, try to get ‘in’ to their mind by providing solution.
This is the real way of doing marketing for your online business. You do not need to have a degree or a PhD to do this. In fact, you are already doing very well in marketing in your life. Think about it, when you go for a great movie, will you tell your friends that the movie is a very worthy and they must watch it? Of course you will. You should do the same thing in affiliate marketing.
So there you go, affiliate marketing is about providing value, not direct selling. If you do not provide any values for your prospects, why should they buy from you anyway? Therefore, share your knowledge with your prospects and provide them what they are looking for, and you will prosper.
