6 Things to Increase Your Affiliate Income
So you've signed up for affiliate programs, posted links around the
net but you're still only making pocket change? Wonder what others are
doing that you aren't? Below you will find 6 things that every
affiliate marketer needs to increase their income.
#1 - Your own Website:
Build a website to promote the product. Make sure it has its own paid
for domain name (yourproduct.com), not a free site like
(yourproduct.othersitename.com). If you don't know how to build a website there are lots of places that offer simple site builders or you could choose to have someone build a site for you.
#2 - Write reviews:
You need to know your product and preferable use it yourself so that
you can write honest reviews about it. What better way to promote a
product and get people to believe it's great than to say you use it
too? Post these reviews on your website, in your newsletters, articles
and any other site you visit that gives you an opportunity to do so.
#3 - Use a Blog:
I recommend that you get a Blog and link back and forth to your
website. This will allow you to create discussions on the blog about
the product you are selling and list any updates to your regular
website. Active Blogs are indexed quicker by many search engines than
are new sites, and after the blog is indexed, the pages you have
linked to the blog will also get indexed.
#4 - Write Articles:
One of the best ways to become an expert on your product is to write
articles on the Internet and include a link to your website in the
resource box. There is a plethora of places to submit articles and the
more you write, the more people will trust what you are saying. You
get more exposure, more people coming to your website; more click
thorough of your affiliate link to purchase the product thus making
you more money.
#5 - Put your links in your signature lines:
Never allow a sale to pass you by! If you are a member of even one
forum, you need to have your affiliate link in your signature line.
It's free advertisement and you never know who will see it and click
through to check out your product.
#6 - Use Links instead of banners or buttons:
Due to the overwhelming amount of pop-ups and flashy text that we get
each time we visit a website, people have learned to block out these
as well as banners and buttons. It's much more professional looking
and effective to have a text link with a few lines about the product.
