How to succeed with affiliate programs

1. All you have to do is join a commercial program as an affiliate and send visitors to the commercial site

2. The rest of the work, such as making a sale, delivering the product or service, receiving payment, handling complaints or making a refund, is handled by the merchant's site.

3. The merchant's site also ensures that you are paid a commission when a sale is made through your efforts.

4. You are also rewarded when a sale is made through the efforts of an affiliate referred by you to the merchant's site.

All easy and simple. But most affiliates soon discover that, despite their best efforts, they are not making money.

This is because affiliate earnings depend not on how many visitors they send to the merchant's site, but how many buy the merchant's product or service.

Therefore, just sending visitors to the commercial site is not enough.
You can do it easily by joining the traffic exchange or autosurf programs. Your commercial site will be seen hundreds of times, but it will not be sold. This is because these visitors are not interested in your site. They are looking for it to earn credits so they can show their site to others.

This does not mean that traffic programs have no use.
I have used them successfully to build my downline on free programs, but I have never made a sale through them. Most of the members of these programs are promoting their own programs. They might be interested in joining other opportunities, but they would rarely opt for a product themselves.

So, if you want to earn from affiliate programs, what you should do is send interested visitors to your commercial site.

Who is an interested visitor?

This is the visitor who came to your site by himself. He is looking for the product he is promoting. That's why he took the trouble to find it in a search engine or in a particular type of ads or forums.

This visitor is red hot for a sale. He is already interested in your product. If you find what you want on your commercial site, it is very likely that you will see the characteristics of the product, compare it mentally with other similar products, request more information by giving your email address. All this can lead to a sale and a commission for you.

How to target interested visitors

At first, this may sound daunting for newcomers, but all this can be done with a little effort. You can get help mastering all these skills from the resources available for free on the Internet.

Joining the right affiliate programs can also help a lot to gain membership domain. While many affiliate programs give you some text ads and banners and end up with you, there are some programs that provide valuable training to succeed.

Be positive

Most newcomers to Internet earnings fail because they expect to be rich in a week, if not overnight. When this does not happen as it rarely happens in real life, they get discouraged. They are also influenced by others who, like them, tried but failed to win with affiliate programs. The result: they give up, frustrated.

The reality is that nobody gets rich overnight in internet marketing. You have to work on it constantly. The most important thing of all is to banish the negative thinking of your life and believe that if others have succeeded, you can and will do so.

That is perhaps the most important ingredient for your success.
