How to Grow an Affiliate Marketing Business
The biggest failure in affiliate marketing is not collecting prospects' email addresses. If you only send your prospects to your affiliate website, you are promoting someone else's business, not your own. Your goal should be not to sell affiliate products, but to grow your own business.
Here is how you build an affiliate business.
1. Use a lead-capture page.
Get your own website and build a home page. Don't write a sales letter for your affiliate product. Instead, write an email course focusing on the strongest benefits of your product. Highlight these benefits in a short sales letter that is designed for one thing only-to get people to subscribe to your course. Then, in your course, promote your affiliate product. The value in this method is that you are actually building a direct marketing business and gaining your own customers.
2. Build your own list.
Spend your time, effort, and money driving targeted traffic to your website. The more visitors you get, the more subscribers you get, and hopefully the more money you make. You can never underestimate the long-term value in having your own customer list. Keep building it. Spend at least 65% of your time in building your list.
3. Reinvest in your business.
When you make a sale, congratulate yourself! Take some of the profits and spend them on yourself. Take your spouse to dinner, go to a movie, or buy another internet marketing ebook! But your goal should be to grow your business. You should take at least 60% of your profits and reinvest them back into your business. How? By buying more ezine ads, adding another pay-per-click campaign, or using some other kind of advertising. Perhaps you could buy an ebook with reprint rights instead of marketing affiliate products-that way you keep all of the profits.
4. Keep marketing to your list.
You should always be on the lookout for new products to promote. Whenever you find one, write another email series, add it to your autoresponder, and keep promoting to your list. Focus on adding at least one new product and series to your autoresponder every month. Some will get tired of the information you send and unsubscribe, but if you are focused on building your list you will always have many more subscribers for each unsubscribe you receive.
If you follow these steps, your affiliate business will grow into a very profitable direct marketing business.

Has the proverbial “shift of power” — a.k.a. portfolio rebalancing — begun within the equity markets? More importantly, what should value-hunting investors do about it?

Yesterday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average caught up with the other major indices when it traded and closed at all-time high levels. The S&P did that a month ago, followed by the Nasdaq a week or so later. Both of those benchmarks are at or close to their highs again now after a short period of consolidation. I am
It’s about that time again. WTI hits $70 per barrel and the tweet-rage is back. OPEC does have a meeting in the coming days in Algiers to assess the state of the oil market, and decide on next steps.

It’s time to cut and run on U.S. equities, and—though the prevailing currency crises might not seem like a good place to park your cash—the bank says it’s time to shift some of that money over to emerging markets. Why? Because Trump’s tax cuts aren’t going to be doling out much more love and the U.S. is poised to
By Avi Gilburt, ElliottWaveTrader.net In this article, I am going to do something a little different from my usual articles and start with my perspective on market direction, and then move into the issues I see in the market today.

I continue to be amazed at many analysts who are shoveling opinion masquerading as fact on the impact of a trade war between China and the U.S. Many analysts are discussing impacts like: how $200 billion of duties on both China and U.S. would affect the U.S. exporters more because the U.S. imports 4 times

The current market can be mystifying at times. It seems that every move, both up and down is massively exaggerated, but if you understand one simple thing, it all makes sense. “Value” in the traditional sense of the multiple of a company’s earnings is now as good as irrelevant: Growth is the only thing that counts.
