7 rules for success through affiliate programs

7 rules for success through affiliate programs

Thousands of people have given up their JOBS and started earning money exclusively online. There are many ways to do it on the Internet ... how to create your own products, offer a service, license products, etc.

Many people have done it without having ANY product of their own. This is done through affiliate income or by selling other people's products for a commission.

This is how it can be done.

1. Don't sell anything you don't have.

This rule is listed first for a good reason. You should never sell something that does not belong to you. If you don't have enough faith in your results to buy it yourself, then you have no reason to sell it to others.

Think about this for a moment: if you do not own it and are not willing to buy it, how can you support the product? How can you honestly answer questions about the product? The answer is that you can't.

Too often, people are willing to get on the train and promote whatever the product advertised for the week ... without stopping to think about the value of the product itself. No matter how many people recommend it, you should not do it if you have not bought it yourself.

2. Only offer complementary products and services.

If your website is about sports products, then you should definitely not offer cigarettes in another program. It makes no sense at all, and these products definitely do not complement each other. It is unlikely that you will sell both products to the same customer.

All these products would attract the same consumer. That is, once you attract the person interested in golf to your site, your chances of selling more than one item increases. This would not be the case if he sold golf clubs and garden books.

Make sure everything you offer goes hand in hand. You must obtain multiple income streams, but all must be related to the same topic.

3. Create an optional email list.

I cannot emphasize enough how important this is for your online success.

Ask any important business person what your most valuable asset is. They are not your products. It is not your location. They are not even your employees.

The most valuable asset for any business is its customer list. The most valuable asset for any Internet business is the optional email list. Your email list IS your Internet business.

Offer an affiliate product ... and earn money once. Offer a subscription to your optional email list and you will earn money forever (from hundreds of offers you can make to that list).

4. Focus on your brand.

Use your optional email list to establish a relationship with your subscribers. When they subscribe for the first time, they may not know you about Peter. Then tell them about yourself. Express your opinions.

In your first 2-3 contacts do not sell them anything. Tell them about yourself, your experiences, take out your neck and tell them what you think. Let your customers know you. You have to give people a reason to know you, like you and trust you.

You don't have to be like your favorite guru. Simply write some things that are exclusively you in your emails.

Sure, some of them will get angry. Some will ask to be removed. Some will curse you. Deal with him. The way I see these people is that by removing myself from my list I don't have to waste time trying to sell them. I simply pass to people who are interested and I have a greater chance of making money.

If you are like everyone else, why should someone choose to buy you?

5. Write your own endorsements and comments.

Each affiliate program has individual ads, sponsorship ads and classified ads available.

But in addition to each ad, you should have your OWN opinion about the product. You should tell your customers in their own words why they should buy this or that. Then use the copy of the ad given under your own statements.

The same goes for online newsletters. You can use other people's content and articles, but every email you send must have something written about you ... in your own words ... at the top, if there is no other place. It could be just a brief section of "what's happening" or an editorial.

You don't have to be a professional writer. You just have to have an opinion

6. Offer additional specials.

You don't have to do this every time, but you must make special offers for your list. Why should you buy a product instead of one of the 1,000 affiliates that offer it?

You can tell them that if they buy the affiliated product A ... they will give you this special report.

All they have to do is buy the product and then send the receipt by email. You will send them your additional bonus report immediately.

It could also be an e-book, an email query, a phone consultation, an announcement in your newsletter, a link on your special links page, etc. Give him something special with some of his offers and see how his checks are fired. Make sure the items you deliver for free are related to your product.

7. Ask for the sale.

You have to ask for the sale. If you don't ask you'll never get it. The worst they can say is "no" and all that means is that you are not worse than you are now. But if you ask and say yes, you are in a much better place.

You cannot be weak or shy. You cannot simply give away a lot of content in the hope that someone clicks on your little link somewhere and magically decides to buy your product. You have to tell them what they get when they buy.

If some subscribers get angry when you send them an offer, help them be removed from your list. It's fun, but the most profitable promotions also have the most complaints and eliminations.

People have sent me an email saying, "If you're just trying to sell something online, then I don't even want your newsletter." Guess what? Remove them That is the ultimate purpose of your newsletter, any content you provide or anything you do online.

Remember why you started in the online business: to earn money and not to give away content and gifts.
