Here are some affiliate marketing tips along with some inspiration to get you through the week
To be honest I am unsure if any affiliate marketer works just 5 days a week, most of the people I know work 7 days, but because it is Monday we tend to see this particular day as a new beginning and for others a day they would love to avoid. I thought it would be kind of nice to get everyone started with some affiliate marketing tips and some inspirational quotes to get us all going in a good direction.
I have noticed that everywhere I go to read about affiliate marketing, there is always the strong suggestion that you need to have your own website. Now for the person who is new to affiliate marketing, many programs you join will tell you that they will give you your own website. The fact is that website is really just a page, with your affiliate link built into it.
So how do you go about having your own website, especially if you are just starting out and have little to no funds to do these kinds of things. Well this affiliate marketing tip is to let you know you can start out your career by building a free website and here are a few places to check out
wix.com. WIX was started in 2006 and according to their write ups is a simple and easy way to create your own unique website.
www.weebly.com Weebly was started in 2007 and offers a range of pricing options from free to plans starting $4.00 a month
jimdo Jimdo was founded in 2007 and offers free to paid like the other sites I have shown. Jimdo is honest enough to say that with the free version they will have an advertisement, which makes sense when you think about it.
Google.com has their own way to create a website or rather web pages. If you want to know more here is their overview
For all those people who say that affiliate marketing won’t work and that you will never create an income from affiliate marketing here are just a couple of facts
1. The year was 1994 when affiliate marketing was born..did you know that? Well according to Forrester Research analysts, the affiliate marketing industry is going to grow to $4.5Billion by the year of 2016
2. eMarketer estimates that m-commerce opportunities will reach over $100 billion by 2017. For those of you who don’t know what the “m” stands for in m-commerce, it means mobile phones, smart phones, tablets etc.
Every thing I am reading is saying that affiliate marketing is going places and promises to help people generate a good income. Like anything else you do , make sure you do your own research to find out what people are wanting and needing. While many of you see affiliate marketing as programs like ( just an example folks - Empower network), there are other styles of affiliate programs that you should look into from joining affiliate networks such as LinkShare, Clickbank or Commission Junction or finding products that are similar such as on Amazon. A shameless plug you could check into the Adlandpro affiliate program as a way create and leverage that income.
A word to the wise though, do a good thorough research of what you want to do, don’t swayed by the sheer numbers of affiliates in any kind of business and don’t be pushed into anything.
Personally I would be looking at the quality of the business, I would be checking their pay structure and if people don’t or cant give you answers to any of your questions, maybe you should rethink going into that business.
Let your readers know the truth about the fact that you do profit when they buy from your affiliations. Your readers know an affiliate link when they see it and hiding this fact will cause them to lose their trust you. Being honest will encourage your visitors to turn into repeat customers.
Let’s face it just being honest and real, is the only way to do good business..do I hear a boom?
What would we do without knowledge! Be prepared to learn about marketing, affiliate marketing and then find ways and means to apply that learning so that it works for you! There is another kind of knowledge though and that is to your customers. When you can answer all your pre customers and customers questions then that is empowering them to buy from you.
An affiliate marketing tip – Create a FAQ page and offer answers about your product or service that will help your customer learn more about your product or service . When you start thinking from the customers point of view then you have a much better chance of understanding their needs and their questions.
Let me ask you a question would you say to a kid to give up if they failed the first time they tried anything? Of course not!
As parents and support people we would be helping that kid to learn and encourage them to keep trying. This is the very same mindset that we need to do for ourselves.
It really is true ..don’t ever give up on your dreams of succeeding in affiliate marketing if this is something you really want to do – just find a better way of doing things.
I hope that these affiliate marketing tips, images, quotes and thoughts will help you during your day, week, month…
