If you want to find out all about affiliate marketing there is no better place than the net. The only problem is how to sift through all the garbage in order to find the hidden gem that will lead you to your millions. I can tell you one thing, it’s not an easy task and if you come across any site that tells you it is and promises to show you how to make it big time in affiliate marketing, give it a wide berth because it’s total BS.
That is your first lesson, nothing in life is easy when it comes to making money and that includes affiliate marketing so DON’T get sucked in.
You will get as much out of Affiliate marketing as you put into it so the more effort on your part the better the results.
Do not make the mistake of signing up for every single affiliate you come across as this will only diminish the amount of effort that you can focus on each individually.
Pick ones that you are passionate about as you will find those easier to promote.
Check the landing pages of your affiliate links because if they don’t ‘grab’ your attention how do you expect them to encourage those you send there to actually make a purchase or to sign up to whatever they are offering. After all, you can do all the hard work to get people to your site and click on a link but if the landing page absolutely sucks you have just wasted all that effort. So, before you begin promoting any affiliate check to see exactly where you are sending your prospective customers.
Don’t always join the biggest affiliates thinking they will lead to greater profits. Sometimes the smaller affiliates provide better customer service with a higher level of affiliate paraphernalia.
Don’t bullshit your prospective customers. Be honest with them and you will have a greater chance of converting their visit to a prospective click.
