There are probably tens of thousands of affiliate marketers trying to make it work, but unfortunately the vast majority are not making any money. If there’s is a universal problem among affiliate marketers, if not all, it has to do with a lack of action taking and just getting things done every day, consistently. Pressing forward with our discussion on affiliate marketing, we’d like for you to discover a few strategies and tips that really can make a positive difference in your own marketing.
How many affiliate marketers out there actually build there own email list of targeted subscribers? There are not a lot. Email marketing to a responsive list has long been known to be a highly profitable endeavor. As you probably know, you’ll ask for a visitor’s contact details so you can continue the ‘marketing conversation’ later. If you engage in email marketing, you’ll just have the chance to follow-up with people in the future. You’ll have to work twice as hard in your marketing if you do not build a list. You will have multiple points of entry into your subscribers life with email, and that will obviously give you more chances to make money. Also think about the fact that your email list is extremely targeted traffic, and you can command their attention if you do it the right way. The usual approach with list building is to make an offer of something for free, like a report or video, in order to get subscribers. Nothing is stopping you from using some creativity with your marketing. But make sure it is good quality information and not trash, and also it needs to be something that relates to your market and your product, or service. You need them to want to continue hearing from you.
If you’re not aware of the importance of choosing a good domain name, then the whole process can be confusing and end-up hurting your business. Most affiliates use a single site to promote a single product, frequently, so if that’s the case then you need to think about the product name and the main keyword phrase. Never, if possible, go with a subdomain name like the kind you get with free hosting accounts. Regardless of how you’re marketing, you’ll want to have a domain with the primary phrase in it for best results.
By law you can only use real testimonials from real customers, but if you have them then use them because they can make a huge difference in your campaigns. What’s going on with them is that they are social proof for your products, or services, and they do work very well. The best place to get them is from the sales page for the product you’re marketing. An effective way to get the most out of your testimonials is to turn them into audio/video. In case you’re unaware, you’ll get a much greater response to video testimonials because people like video much more than reading regular text. In addition, you’ll find that people will stay on your site longer because of the video, so that’s another plus to consider. Nothing really about affiliate marketing is hard, but it can seem that way depending on your view of it. True, there’s a lot of compeition in affiliate marketing, but for whatever it’s worth most of your competitors will not stick it out and succeed.
