Every affiliate marketer is looking for exactly what allows those truly successful markets to make the big affiliate paychecks. It seems at times to be almost a magic formula! It is not. It's just good marketing practices that have been proven over years and year.
These tactics worked before the advent of online marketing and continue to work in today's online affiliate marketing world. With these top three affiliate marketing tips, you should be able to increase your sales within seven days after implementing all three tips!
1. Use unique web pages to promote each separate product you are marketing. Don't try to lump a bunch of products together to save a bit of money on web hosting. Have a site dedicated to each product and to nothing else. Include affiliate product reviews on the website to spell out exactly what the product will do for the purchaser. Include testimonials from users who have enjoyed the product and are willing to allow you to use their names and photos on your website for that product.
Write articles highlighting uses for the product and include them on the website as additional pages. Make the web pages compelling, and include calls to act on the information. Every headline must attract the reader to read more. Bullets and highlights of special points will help the reader who is scanning to learn what the page is about find that they have to know more!
2. At the very top or top side of your web page, where it simply can't be missed, offer free reports to your readers. Then create autoresponder messages that will be emailed to those who input their personal information into the sign-up box. Research has proven that it is usually on the seventh contact with a prospect that a sale is closed.
With a web page alone, one of two things will happen: the sale is closed or the prospect will leave the page and never return. By placing useful information at no cost into their inbox at periods specified by your, you will remind them of the product they thought they might want later, and often will find the sale is closed. Be sure your content is directed toward the specific reasons to buy the product, but doesn't come across as "sales pitch".
Fact filled uses for a product and ways that the product will make life better and more enjoyable; these are the points on which to focus. Be sure you include a compelling subject line in the email and don't use the word "free" because some of the older spam filters will cause your mail to be dumped into the junk mail box before anyone reads it. Convince the reader who signed up for your free reports that they simply can't live without your product!
3. Get traffic to your website that is targeted to your product. After all, if the person who finds your website has no interest at all in what you are selling, they will be one of the 99 out of 100 who move on and never come back without further encouragement. By writing articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports, you can locate publications which focus on your target consumer base and grab their interest.
By writing as few as 2 articles per week, each only 350-600 words in length, you can generate as many as 100 targeted readers to your site in a single day. The more articles you get out to people, the greater your chances of closing sales within your targeted audience.
This doesn't sound very difficult, does it? It really isn't difficult at all. It just requires you to take a little time and create a plan of action. Use each of these tips in the order given and you will be prepared when that flood of targeted traffic hits your website.
Keep in mind, only 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product. If you generate 1,000 targeted hits to your website per day, that means that you will have made 10 sales based on statistical average! If you use these tips for several different affiliate marketing programs, you can end up having those huge affiliate paychecks everyone dreams about!
