Making Money on the Internet – 3 Tips For Increasing Your Affiliate Marketing Profit Potential
If you’ve been working hard at increasing your affiliate earnings and haven’t seen the success you’re after, don’t abandon ship just yet. Affiliate marketing is an effective way to make money on the internet, but it’s not a get rich quick scheme. With that said here are three tips that I believe will help you to increase your effectiveness as an affiliate marketer and increase your profit potential.
Tip #1. Don’t sell before the sale.
One problem that many affiliates face is not being able to convert their website visitors into customers. It seems like no matter how much traffic they send to their website, nothing is happening.
The problem most of the time is that the landing page their visitors are coming to is trying to sell them on the product that the merchants sales page is designed for. Some vendors pay really big bucks for persuasive sales copy.
However the effectiveness of the sales copy is diluted if your landing page tries to sell instead of ‘pre-sell’ your visitors.
Tip #2 Get boatloads of traffic to your affiliate link.
There are lots of good offers that you can promote and make good commission checks with, but without a substantial amount of traffic running to the offer, your results will be poor.
Work at setting up a plan for driving a relentless flow of visitors to your affiliate link. Whether you choose to use blogging, article marketing, ppc, or any other method, the key to your success is in consistency and frequency.
Tip #3 Promote programs with proven track records.
With all of the programs and products that you can promote, it’s not every one that has a proven track record that spans more than a year or two. Look for products that are converting well and have more or less been widely accepted in your market.
Brand familiarity can help to increase sales almost effortlessly, simply because individuals who are in the process of considering the possibilities of the product for themselves won’t feel like guinea pigs. If it’s worked for x amount of years and for x amount of people, then chances are it will work for “me”.
