Losing Thousands in Affiliate Commissions!
Start Your Own
Affiliate programs are also called associate, referral, reseller, partner, bounty, revenue sharing, programs.
You send visitors to a web site. They buy something, or sign up for something, and you get paid a commission. This revenue sharing arrangement is called affiliate program. As a web site owner, you are rewarded for sending customers to the web site.
These affiliate programs are usually easy to join. After signing up, you place a banner ad, small graphic or ordinary text which links from your site to the vendor site. If someone clicks on the link and buys a product or service from the web site, you receive a commission.

Harness your passion
The best way is to concentrate on a small niche. Choose a topic in which you are passionately interested, and create a web site around that theme. Then select affiliate programs which fit the theme of your site and blend them into the site.
If possible, write about the products from first-hand knowledge, so that you become a credible information source.
The huge advantage of basing a site on a topic in which you are passionately interested is that you will enjoy running your web site and marketing the affiliate program - it will be much more like a fascinating hobby than a job.
Select your target first
Before doing anything, decide whom you are going to market the products to. Don't select the product first. Select your target audience first.
You're looking for an easily identifiable target. There's no sense in building a web site and then trying to figure out how to attract audience.
Obviously, the primary target audience for Working-At-Home-Business.com are those who are looking for ways to make money on the Internet. There are lots of opportunity seekers online but few are actually making serious money. Many people keep trying MLM schemes one after another and end up with no sales year after year.
We provide perfect info products for opportunities seekers teaching them the "real" way to make a fortune on the Internet.
It doesn't mean you should have a Internet related site to promote these books. Not at all. You just need to figure out a "link" between these books and your audience's desire. Think of how a profitable Internet business can meet their needs in life.
For example, if you are running a site targeting at Mums, good! Is it fantastic for your visitors to discover new income streams while staying at home?
Running a jobs site? Great! What else can be better than working for your own online business?
A site about car? Well, just use your imagination...
A site only attracting CEOs? Think twice before signing up.
You need lots of traffic
If you already have a busy site and the product you choose to promote is attractive to your visitors, you should start earning money straight away. If you have a new, low-traffic site, you have a lot of work ahead of you.
Merely attracting traffic isn't enough. You have to learn how to encourage people to click on the links and buy something. So make sure you trigger that hot button in their mind!
Think of how a successful Internet business can make their life happier!
Honestly, it may take months to receive your first check if your site has only 5 visitors a day. But anyway, you have nothing to lose. Whatever you earn is extra money. Why not?
If you are serious about making money with affiliate programs, see Ken Evoy's Make Your Site SELL! for tons of good traffic-generating tips.
When will you be paid?
Some web sites pay you only after you have accumulated $100 or $200 in commission. I have even encountered a site who has $1,000 minimum payout requirement! If you have a very busy site, that's ok. For a small site without much traffic, it could take a long time.
There's even the odd site which won't pay you at all unless you generate a certain level of business. Read the affiliate agreement before you sign up.
Go for quality
The most important consideration when assessing affiliate programs is to examine the product or service offered. Is it really helpful to your visitors? Does it offer valuable information? The better the product or service, the more enthusiastic you will be about recommending it, and you'll have a better chance that people will buy it.
With our eBooks and software products, you can be sure that your visitors will be eager to buy because they offer valuable information that will help them make a much more comfortable living on the Internet.
For example, one
of our eBooks, How to Create a Fortune
on the Internet In Just Four Simple Steps, is written by
Corey Rudl, the most well-known
and successful Internet business guru in the world today. Corey's course
Insider Secrets to Marketing Your Business on the Internet"
literally crushed the competition and became the #1 best-selling Internet
marketing course overnight - at the price of $197!
In his new eBook How to Create a Fortune on the Internet In Just Four Simple Steps Corey revealed the same 4-step formula he's personally used to make $6.2 million per year online. And the price is just $37 - really good value for money!
Beware of anyone who raves on about the money you can make and forgets to tell you about the product or service. Most of the MLM programs are like that. The sales blurb can be tempting, but make sure you have a solid product to market.
Earn good commissions
This one is rather self-explainable. Remember, those links and banners are helping persuade visitors to leave your site. So look for programs which reward you generously for recommending.
Most web sites pay you 10% to 30%. Some big ticket items may only pay 2%. We pay you 50% of the selling price you generate. Interested? Sign up now.
Seek good tracking
When you market affiliate programs you want to know straight away how effective your promotion work has been. Then you can increase your sales and commissions by concentrating on the things that work. That's why you need instant, or real-time, tracking - you need to quickly see which of your promotions work and which ones don't.
Our affiliate program is managed by a well known third party, SellShareware. Everything is tracked. You can log into your SellShareware account anytime to check your statistics and commissions in real-time.
Every time a visitor at your site clicks on the link and visits our site, a "cookie" will be set in her computer. The cookie enables us to know that this visitor is referred by you. That way, you will not lose your sales if she does not buy the first time she visited our site. You will get credit for the sales even if she buys our ebooks months later!
Look for lifetime commissions
Imagine you set up a bookshop as an associate of Amazon. Someone visits your site and - hey! you're in luck - buys a book. You earn 5% or 15% from Amazon. Next time, however, that customer will probably just go straight to Amazon, and might buy $100 worth of books. You won't receive a cent on that purchase.
A few programs do pay you for the second and third and fourth etc purchase by the customer. The best one I know of is Ken Evoy's SiteSell program, whose products include:
Make Your Site SELL! - the BIBLE of site-selling
Make Your Knowledge SELL! - The BIBLE of selling what you know on the internet
Make Your Price SELL! - how to choose the right price that can literally triple your net profits.
Make Your Words SELL! - filling you with mission-critical writing skills to sell on the internet.
And more. Visit SiteSell for details.
And Ken has made it clear that they will keep developing new products. Whenever a visitor referred by you buys a product, you get paid - even future products that don't exist yet now. That means the customer is yours, forever.
They mean what they say. When I bought the Make Your Site Sell course, it was Ken's only product at the time.
In our case, if someone referred by you buys multiple times from us, you get paid all the commissions.
Don't lose the plot
Some web site owners sign up for dozens of affiliate programs and clutter their site with links so much that it's difficult to see the theme of the site. Other webmasters try "banner farms". Don't waste your time. It won't work!
If you want your visitors to keep coming back, your site needs to have an obvious, memorable reason for its existence.
You need original content which your visitors feel helpful. And then blend the affiliate links with your site.
Personal endorsements increase sales
The most effective way to increase your click-through rate and sales is to write an honest review or endorsement of the product. Or talk about your personal experience with the product. Successful affiliates buy the product so that they can write a genuine, honest review of it. Don't you think actually using the product is the best way to find out why your visitors should buy it too?
Slightly critical reviews work as well.
The worst way to do it
The dumbest way to promote affiliate programs is to use spam - bulk unsolicited email. In plain English, don't send marketing email to someone who has nothing to do with you. You can wreck your reputation, lose your Internet connection, and forfeit any commissions you've earned.
You were warned!
That's it for now. I will write more tips if you guys ask me to.
