Affiliate marketing is truly one of
the most powerful and easiest models online to generate
massive cash quickly, fact is you can get started in
minutes from now without the hassle of creating your own
products or websites.
While there're many factors to consider in the affiliate
marketing business, one of the most critical questions I
get every time from newer marketers is always...
“Ewen, How Do I Promote My Affiliate Link?"
Here then are 7 powerful tactics you can use today to
promote any affiliate program with:
==> Tactic #1: Your Own Opt-In List
If you've your own existing opt-in list this would
obviously be the quickest way to start. However I'd like
to provide you with some ideas to maximize the response
and results you wouldn't otherwise get if you never
It's always a good tactic to provide some kind of
time-sensitive bonuses to entice your list to buy through
your affiliate link. It has always work and it'll continue
You should also do at least 3 follow-up mailings as
statistics have proven that you will get the most sales
from your 2nd and 3rd mailings.
Now what if you don't have your own list to begin with?
The most logical action would be to seriously consider
building your own money-making list without delay. A
complete course to build and profit from your own opt-in
list is at http://www.ewenchia.com/listsecrets.htm
Alternatively a 'second-rate' method is to use...
==> Tactic #2: Other People's
What do I mean by this? One quick method to leverage on
someone else's list is through ezine advertising,
particularly with solo ads.
As in all kinds of advertising, what you want to do
besides advertising the affiliate program is also to build
your own list. A simple way to do this while promoting the
affiliate program is by using a catchy one-two sentence
signature file after your name.
The best advertising you can get is to pre-qualified
targeted lists of like-minded people, especially people
with money in hand. While these are rare and even harder
to identify, an amazing resource can be found here
==> Tactic #3: Google AdWords
You can start promoting any affiliate program in less than
15 minutes with pay-per-click advertising, especially
Since Jan 6th 2005, there had been some changes to
Google's policies regarding advertising of affiliate
products on Google AdWords.
Without going into boring details, you can still advertise
affiliate programs by using landing pages customized to
the affiliate program you're promoting.
As I've provided in detail exactly how you can use Google
AdWords in "Striking Affiliate Gold", I won't
repeat it again. You can download a copy of the manual at http://undergroundsalesletters.com/strikegold.pdf
==> Tactic #4: Article Marketing
This is one tactic you got to get started on because it
I've made tons of affiliate sales purely from articles. In
fact, one of my articles generated over 25 affiliate sales
in a little over 3 days on autopilot.
The key to successful article writing is to provide real
information and tips. Make sure it doesn't sound like an
outright sales pitch. Any recommendations you make should
be added value to the article. The recommendation should
not be its main purpose.
Again I won't be repeating information I've already
covered. If you're interested in using articles as an
affiliate promotional weapon, download these two revealing
reports I've written:
==> Tactic #5: Leverage On Your Existing Web Pages
There're 3 main ways to go about doing this...
One is to simply promote your affiliate programs on highly
trafficked and relevant pages of your website. Check your
website statistics to see which pages visitors view the
most. These are great target areas for your promotions,
especially if they are relevant to the affiliate product
Two, recommend affiliate products on your thank you pages.
After a visitor has made a purchase from you or sign up
for your ezine, all you've to do is add in a short
recommendation of an affiliate product prominently on the
thank you page.
Third, use your custom error (404) pages as affiliate
marketing tools. This is the page that shows up when
visitors enter a wrong URL or extension, there's no point
in wasting this space so why not use it to promote an
==> Tactic #6: Capture Exit Traffic On Demand
You can quickly make extra affiliate sales just by using
an exit window or pop up window to promote your affiliate
While there're popup killers out there, you'll be
surprised just how many percent of people actually install
them - I don't.
Fact is, pop ups, especially exit pop ups still produce
good results. Stick with one tasteful pop-up targeted to
your visitors and you’ll see great results.
==> Tactic #7: Other Quick And Simple Tips
Recommend affiliate products in your 'thank you emails'.
This is a no-brainer, whether you’re saying thanks for
joining your ezine or for buying a product, always give
your email recipients an affiliate recommendation for a
targeted product you've personally found useful.
You can also create autoresponder courses on topics
related to the affiliate program you're promoting as a
form of follow-up pre-selling.
That's it for now and I hope this article has been useful.
