12 Ways To Promote Your Affiliate Program
Hundreds of people sign up for affiliate programs everyday because they look at this partnership as an easy way of having their own business. Although you don't have to worry about the many factors that come from owning other types of businesses, one factor that is important with an affiliate business is marketing and promotion. If you want to make a good living from this type of arrangement, this is a vital step.
There are some people that may think just by having affiliate links on their website will bring them in a good revenue. This can have some truth to it, providing you were receiving a large amount of hits per month on your website. Most successful affiliates, even those who are getting large amounts of traffic each month, still believe in utilizing strong marketing campaigns for their affiliate programs.
To build consistent revenue, you can promote your affiliate programs doing the following:
1.) Make sure to list the programs you offer on your website, using banners and text links.
2.) If you have your programs listed on a separate page on your website, submit that URL separately to search engines.
3.) A great way to promote your programs is through your opt-in mail list. Most of your successful affiliates will say this is the best way to promote your new business. You will find that many companies will supply you with the email promotion ads to use.
4.) You can place a separate add about your affiliate program in an ezine (newsletter). Most affiliate programs will have ezine advertising ads that you can use.
5.) You can write your own newsletter and promote your new business opportunities in your newsletter.
6.) You can post in some message boards about your new program.
7.) You can register with some affiliate directories.
8.) You can run ads on Internet classifieds (unless you use a paid classified, don't expect good results).
9.) You can place ads in your local newspaper.
10.) You can place ads in a magazine.
11.) You can post flyers throughout your community. Some affiliate programs supply you with the flyers; all you do is print them out.
12.) You can have letterhead and business cards printed up, listing your programs. This is a great way of advertising what you do.
On a final note: Having an affiliate business requires dedication, perseverance and motivation in order to reach levels of success. One thought to leave you with that applies to any business is "Nothing Ventured - Nothing Gained".
