Top 3 Things All Affiliate Marketers Need To Use
| By Jason Gazaway
After having chosen several programs to join,
you probably realize that customers won't
knock on your door - you have to come to them.
By promoting your affiliate programs successfully,
you build your own success!
So what should you do to promote your affiliate
programs? Here are five methods which have
succeeded for millions and can succeed for
you, if you choose to follow the same steps
as those millions before you!
#1 Create your own marketing affiliate program
Many people use the marketing materials provided
by the program they signed up for. Guess what?
Thousands of people are using those same materials,
those same ready-made websites and those same
advertisements. People are easily bored and
those ads get old really, really fast. Create
something brand new and all your own!
* Create your own promotional website instead
of using a stale, pre- packaged website. This
is not very expensive and the returns can
* Create your own brochures and pamphlets.
Whether using email or mailing materials to
prospects in the old-fashioned way, be sure
your material is fresh and new.
* Create compelling business cards. The business
cards you hand out to contacts that you network
with should also be fresh, new, and cause
the person reading the card to feel compelled
to contact you. A simple byline such as "Information
on Becoming an Overnight Success" can
be all it takes to make that person call you
for more information.
* Write original articles and submit for publication
to ezines for exposure of your fresh material.
#2 Generate Leads from an Opt-In Email List
Sure, you can buy names from email lists,
but are those people even interested in the
type of product you have to offer? Probably
not! Create an opt-in mailing list by allowing
prospects who come to your website to choose
to receive a free newsletter. This gives you
the opportunity to include information in
the newsletter about your products. Why is
this the best way?
* Allows contact with people who have at least
some interest in the product you are promoting
on your website
* Generates mailing list for future products
you may promote
* Saves tons of money compared to buying mailing
After all, think of all those flyers that
come in the newspaper. What do you do with
them? If you are like most people, you throw
them away because they don't pertain to you.
If all the flyers in your newspaper were placed
there because you, personally, had expressed
interest in them, you probably would read
them all! This is the difference between random
mailing and mailing to prospects that share
an interest in your product type!
#3 Network, Network, Network
Never miss an opportunity to network with
others who may have an interest in your products,
or even be interested in joining the affiliate
program under you.
* Share your own success story with others
you encounter. Many will be interested in
joining you in your endeavor.
* Offer to mentor new prospects to ensure
* Exchange business cards and make follow-up
calls to encourage them to talk with you further
about your programs.
#4 Use Blogs to Promote Your Programs.
In the past year, blogs have become extremely
popular. You can use this forum to your advantage
in promoting your affiliate marketing programs.
* Generate top-quality content to place on
* Be sure that the blogs you choose are not
over saturated by affiliate marketers already.
Locate fresh blogs to use in your promotions.
* Content should compel the reader to action.
Make them HAVE to check out your program.
#5 Use banner exchanges to your advantage.
Most marketers know that banner exchanges
can help them promote their products, but
there are a few tricks to success.
* Make sure your banner is placed on sites
that will attract the same client base that
will desire you product.
* Create attractive and compelling banner
content. Plain-Jane banner ads won't attract,
those that send acompelling message to act
* Always look for new places for your banner
to appear. Don't become complacent because
you have three or four sites showing your
banner. There are new websites every single
These five tips will help you successfully
promote your affiliate programs. There are
many other ways to promote products, but these
are proven to work for people who dedicate
themselves to ensuring their programs get
the necessary exposure to succeed.
