Know some important rules and secrets to run a successful affiliate program

There are many people who log on to the Internet every day in search of a way to earn money online.

They start with the best intentions, but unfortunately, before they know it, they are being bombarded with information and are simply turning their wheels.

I fully understand this. There is a lot of online marketing information online and once you start it seems like an "information overload".

Therefore, I will try to keep this as simple and brief as possible.

Many people will sign up for an affiliate program that promotes the product or affiliate program. This makes sense. Starting as an affiliate seller is probably the easiest way to start online. There are many affiliate programs that will provide everything you need to promote your products or programs ... Well, almost everything.

You see, many of these affiliate sites will give you a website, but you are not the owner of the site. It is an entry site. He doesn't even have the domain name for that matter.

However, being part of one of these programs is not bad. I belong to several. SFI is a perfect example. I joined their program and I have several sites that gave me to promote their products and their affiliate program.

But if you are really going to make money with these types of sites, you will have to do much more than just sign up for your program.

It is simply irrational to think that people will simply meet your site and sign up for your program and start earning money.

There are some things you should do if you really want an affiliate program to work.

First, you must have your "own" web page with your "own" domain name and your "own" host. Then, you will have links from your "own" site to the other "gateway" sites. You will promote your gateway site, but you will promote it through your own site.

There are so many reasons for this that it could not fit into this article, but basically the site is yours to run as you wish. Think of it this way ... it is "your" store and you are selling "your" product.

Your website could be designed as a short sales letter that focuses primarily on this program, if that is what you choose. Or, it could focus on several affiliate programs and products within the same market. For example, a sales letter with the best opportunities to earn money from 3 to 5.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: Either way, promoting a program / product or promoting several, not only will you want to own your own site, but you can definitely "attract" potential customers from time to time. What I mean by that is that you want to capture the email addresses of the people who visit your site.

To do so, you must give away something that has enough value so that people are willing to give up your email address and receive something from you week after week or at least month after month.

An electronic newsletter / publication is perfect for this. Send a weekly or monthly newsletter on your topic that includes articles, tips, e-courses, bonuses, etc. This way you can connect your programs over and over again (not just once).

I know this sounds a lot ... design your own website and your own newsletter.

However, there are programs available that really configure everything for you, including a website, an automatic response, a prewritten newsletter and even unlimited support.

Plug-in-Profit (PIPS) is a perfect example. You can have a website that site is 100% yours to change as you wish. The site is ready to promote 5 different programs. You can work with as many as you want and you can also add yours.

You also get a prewritten newsletter and an automatic response that is also 100% customizable. The newsletter is obviously designed to promote the programs that come with the website, but you can change it as you wish.

PIPS may or may not be what you are looking for; However, if you really want to succeed online, you will definitely need your own website and your own newsletter.
