| By Jason Gazaway
Everyone wants a huge affiliate check. All
the advertisements promise them, but if you
just buy into the affiliate program and expect
large affiliate checks to come, you will be
sorely disappointed. Even if you have built
downline in your affiliate program, your checks
will not often be very large. The goal, after
all, is to make money - and lots of it!
Try these 7 sure-fire ways to build those
large affiliate checks that you have only
dreamed of in the past.
* Optimizing Your Website For The Search Engines
If you want people to locate your website,
it had better come up on the first page of
results from the major search
engines. People rarely move on to the second
or subsequent pages of the search engine results.
Search engine optimization is an art, and
the rules used by the search engines change
If you want to research how to optimize your
website for the search engines, you can do
some online research and learn the process.
Or you can save tons of time and hire someone
who is skilled at the art already. Remember;
if people can't locate you, they can't buy
* Product Review Pages
Your website should contain reviews of the
product you are selling. People need to know
why they should buy this specific product.
They need to be compelled to want to own it.
They need to be assured that they simply can't
live a happy life without your product. Make
every webpage compelling and a call to action
to buy, buy, buy - but do it subtly. Don't
just tell the reader to buy. Make them want
to buy by giving them reasons they have to
have this product today.
* Make Statistics Your Friend
On average, 1% of the people who visit an
affiliate marketing websites will buy immediately.
The other 99% will move along and never return.
To make this statistic your friend, you have
to obtain targeted hits to your website. Once
way to do this is to get the visitor's name
and email addresses before they leave by placing
an offer for something free on your webpage.
Then follow up. Often, by the seventh time
you contact that prospect, they will decide
* Learn From The Pros
There are thousands of wonderful articles
on the Internet explaining affiliate marketing
tips and tricks. There are
hundreds of books in libraries on the same
subject. Don't stop at this report; learn
every thing that you can that has
worked for someone in the past. Then take
every one of the points that apply to you
and implement them. The more tactics you implement,
the more traffic you will obtain and the more
sales you will close.
* Continual Updates
Update your web pages often. If a prospect
has visited your page a month ago, they will
move away if they see exactly the same thing
on your web page this month. Make the appearance
and content fresh and new. While you continue
your follow up with prospects, the ones who
do go make a re-visit to your site may see
just the thing that attracts them this time.
Web pages are simple to create and the little
time required to ensure freshness is minimal.
Information on learning to
create effective web pages is all over the
Internet; take the time to learn. If you use
any time sensitive data on your
web pages, but certain that the updates occur
as frequently as necessary.
* Sweeten The Deal
There is not a person on earth that doesn't
want something for free. You do, I do, and
everyone we know does, too. Offer the prospect
visiting your web pages something for free.
It can be an ebook you wrote yourself or purchased
for redistribution, a report, a bundled product.
Whatever it is, sweeten the deal to get the
If the prospect has gotten far enough to learn
the price of your product, then make sure
they also see right then that
something else is added to the package. The
more you sweeten the deal, the better. Give
them reports, ebooks, tutorials, anything
that will go well with your product and make
the buyer feel they are getting a lot of value
for their money.
* Don't Over or Under Price Yourself
If your product is one that you have price
control over, then remember, it is far, far
better to get more sales than fewer.
So don't price your products so high that
most people will pass. However, the mentality
of the buyer is that if it is too
inexpensive to be real, then it must not be
A mid-range price for a product will outsell
either higher priced items or lower priced
ones. This may not be true in
face-to-face sales, but it certainly is proven
in Internet sales.
