Affiliate marketing has got to be one of the greatest business models the world has ever seen. Basically it allows someone with no products of their own without any customer service hassles to make a good living online by funneling traffic to other websites ad collecting a sizable percentage of the sale. It sounds fantastic, and it really is for some, but sadly for many it just doesn’t produce the sort of income that would be necessary for them in order to do it full-time comfortably. The great thing is that by learning a few really good and clever techniques it is easy to have a great increase in the amount of money that you make for pretty much the same effort as before. Remember always work smarter but not necessarily harder.
First and foremost remember to always build a list if you are doing affiliate marketing. This is the most important thing in affiliate marketing and so if you haven’t started a list already then you really must do so. It is the only way to build long term profits with security in this industry. Now we’ve cleared that up let’s move quickly on to the 3 killer affiliate marketing tactics:
1. Use Video In Order To Increase Conversions
Over the past couple of years video has really taken the Internet by storm and whether you like it or not in order to keep with the times and produce maximum profits it has got to be an integral part of your marketing. The great thing is that it is not that complicated anymore and is also really cheap. The important thing is to have your video follow onto the affiliate programme which your promoting after it has finished playing. A great tool which only costs about $30.00 can do this easily and is called CamStudioPro. The investment should pay its self back quickly.
2. Use A Link Cloaking Service
Nowadays, particularly in the Internet Marketing niche but also more and more in outside niches, people are becoming more and more aware of affiliate links and as a result less commissions are being made. Therefore it is a good idea to use a link cloaker service to protect your links. There are some free ones and paid ones out there and so it is a good idea to do a Google search and find a suitable one.
3. Offer Bonuses For Buying
This is a great way to increase conversions. Just create a nice bonus to go with a product and then tell people when they buy to send their receipt to you in order for you to send them their bonus. This is open and up front and since it benefits both parties it works really well.
hey, I’m Kim + I am ridiculously passionate about helping you to work smarter and not harder + to realize how freaking amazing you actually are, exactly as you are and how easy business really can be when you are in alignment + simplify + add systems to organize your business + plan your business growth. I’ve been geeking out about online business, online marketing + systems + personal development + all that stuff since I created my first business back in 2006 + sold it.
This whole business owner thing is not for the faint of heart, there is a reason why most businesses fail!
While the road to burnout doesn’t look the same for everyone on it there are some similarities you typically experience on this path!
- You’re always in the weeds of your business
- You don’t have efficient systems and processes (or maybe none at all)
- You aren’t delegating effectively
- You can’t take time off
- You’re trying to do too many things at once + wearing all the hats
It’s exhausting just thinking about it! But there’s a way off the hamster wheel!
If you’re overwhelmed, overworked, stressed out, and worried that if you take time off the bottom will fall out from beneath you and your business will fall apart.
Then, you are in the right place my friend, been there, done that, got the tee-shirt and I’d love to support you in ending the cycle!
