Affiliate marketers always seem to be looking for "the"
successful market that gives the biggest paycheck. Some think
there’s a magic formula that will catapult them to riches.
Actually, it’s a lot more complicated.
So what is the key to affiliate marketing success? Simply put,
good marketing practices that have been proven over years of hard
work and dedication of others.
These affiliate marketing tactics have worked in the past,
continue to work in the online affiliate marketing world today,
and will, no doubt, work in the future as well.
By following these three tactics, you'll be able to increase
your sales and be a winner in affiliate marketing online.
1. Using unique, content-rich web pages to promote your products.
If you promote each product on it’s own web page you will win
sales in several ways.
Firstly, by providing products with their own page you will be
able to keyword optimize the pages to gain a high search engine
ranking, thereby realizing more traffic which converts to more
Secondly, you can promote your products using product reviews
and testimonials, giving your potential customers, less hype and
more substantial information to base their decision on.
Thirdly, by using product reviews you can promote yourself as an
expert in your field which will garner trust and confidence from
your potential customers. When you accomplish this, not only will
your customers buy today, they will come back and buy again!
Fourthly, you can write articles highlighting the uses of the
product and include them on your website as an additional page.
Make these pages attractive, compelling and include calls to act
on the information.
2. Offer free reports to your readers. If possible position them
at the very top of your page so it simply cannot be missed.
Create auto-responder messages to be emailed to those who sign up
for your report.
Now you have a potential customer and a new list subscriber!
Please use an opt-in email for this so subscribers know that if
they want your free report they will he hearing from you again.
Your report should show how using your product will solve a
problem or problems that customers in your niche might be having.
This is not an advertisement or sales pitch and should not appear
as one or potential customers will be turned off. It should be
an informational product with minimal but well placed product links.
3. Article marketing is an excellent way to market your products
and includes several benefits. Not only is it a wonderful tool
for marketing your products, if well written your articles will
improve your website ranking, bringing you even more traffic and
more potential customers.
Having articles on your website provides quality content, which
we know the search engines love. If your articles are keyword
optimized they will garner their own page rank and be a real draw
for potential customers.
Submitting your articles to article directories will also attract
potential customers and pull in back end links from other
webmasters who will use the articles on their sites for content.
Some newsletter owners may use your articles for content in their
newsletters as well.Again more potential customers and traffic
from other sources, maybe even your competitors!
Writing articles is a win, win situation! They can market your
products, bring you targeted traffic, boost your search engine
rankings, and beef up your "expert" status.
These affiliate marketing tactics are not difficult and won’t
cost you an arm-and-a-leg to implement - Just a little time and a
plan of action.
