Generate More Sales in ANY Affiliate Program – Part One
by: Gillian Tarawhiti
It is my opinion that the best AFFILIATE PROGRAM ever…is still the AFFILIATE PROGRAM YOU own.
For those who are content in promoting other peoples programs…I will share with you a few of my strategies for FREE!
But before I do that, let’s see why most affiliates FAIL in just about any given affiliate program.
Like food products, affiliates have a ‘use by date’ or ‘expiry date’. An average affiliate will expire 30 days after commencing …30 days or less to see if the program is any good and then they move on to the next affiliate program of the month.
If the affiliate doesn’t see a return on there investment in the first two weeks then they will not stay around.
DON’T BECOME A ‘30 DAY WONDER’.
It is time to make an informed decision (in choosing your affiliate program) and sticking with it. If you are one of those netpreneurs who changes affiliate programs often, and not making money from it, you now know why it isn’t working.
So before you go any further, make an informed decision (research) on the program you want to promote.
Now back to those STRATEGIES – TWO STRATEGIES TO BE EXACT.
Very simple and straight forward, KNOW YOUR PRODUCT!
To know your product you need to USE IT, and know EVERYTHING there is to know about it. It’s like going to watch a movie that you really, really enjoyed, you get this scene of excitement to share your great experience with others, well … you need to get that same excitement about your product that only comes about by KNOWING YOUR PRODUCT.
The Golden Question for all affiliates is ‘How can I create an advantage for me?’
The Answer: Incentive Marketing
If you have never heard of Incentive Marketing, you are sure to have been a victim of it in your every day life.
Think about it… have you ever Up sized your meal at McDonald’s, have you ever brought anything because of the Free Gift or Discount.
Incentive Marketing, Incentive Marketing, Incentive Marketing…
It doesn’t matter that there are potentially thousands of other affiliates promoting the same program because from today onwards you are going to create an unfair advantage. Start thinking about what you could possibly use to create an unfair advantage and in PART TWO, I will give you the strategies you would need to become an SUPER INCENTIVE MARKETER.
To Your Online Success!
