Affiliate Marketing Secrets

Secrets of Affiliate Marketing

One of the easiest and fastest way to earn a living online is through affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing means that all you do is sendvisitors to someone else's website, they do everything else! (make the product, design the sale page, handle the billing and support, etc.), and you get paid 50% or more

These are a some of the benefits

  1. You can get started almost immediately because you don't have to create a product, set up a website and sales page, develop the website, create marketing materials, or get a merchant account and CRM.
  2. You have basically zero investment of your time because you don't have to do the customer support or deal with billing or technical issues.
  3. Your efforts are risk-free, because the product owner has already done all the research , development and testing. So if you send visitors you will get paid.
Looking at these benefits, it's clear that affiliate marketing is the way to go!

OK, but it's not all rosy...

You work hard to send the traffic to the product owner's website, but once you do that you will never see those visitors again. Less than 10% of the visitors your send will actually buy the product. And of the 10% or less that do buy, the product owner will be able to sell to them again, but you will not.

Is there are way around this?

It's simple: You must get your visitors' email addresses before you send them to the product owner's website. This way you can follow up with them and keep sending them back to the sales page to increase your chances of making the sale. And if you're a super star affiliate, you'll provide high-quality content before sending them to the product website.
Here are the benefits of doing affiliate marketing like this:
  1. You'll be building your own list of potential customers that you can market to again and again.
  2. By providing great content without a sales pitch, you put them in a buying mood. So when you do send them to the product website, they're much more likely to buy.
If you want to create an affiliate marketing system like this, you'll need the following:
  1. A squeeze page, and even better a Video squeeze page.
  2. Several high-quality content pages
  3. A multi-part email series with at least 5 emails in it
You'll use the squeeze page as the place to send your visitors instead of using the product website. Your squeeze page adds your visitors to you autoresponder. This is how you start building your list, and at the same time begin sending them useful information. After subscribing them to your email list, it redirects them to your content mini-site.
The content pages provide valuable information for your visitors and make them more receptive to the sales message that you'll link to from inside the content. While they're reading the content you've provided, your email system is already following up with them to send them back to the product website again and again.
There's no doubt that it's worth the effort to put a system like this in place, because doing so will increase your profits by 500% or more. After setting it up, you simply send visitors to your squeeze page instead of the sales page. And the rest runs on auto-pilot.
One option, if you're not up to the challenge of setting this all up yourself, is to let someone like Affiliate Silver Bullet do it for you. Services like this design the enter system (the video, the video squeeze page, the email series, the content pages, etc). The major benefit of using a service like this is that you can get started right away, and for a whole lot less than it would cost to do it all yourself. The downside is that other people will be using the same affiliate tools as you. But the internet is pretty big, so this isn't much of a concern.
Alternatively, you can use a service like Elance to "outsource" each of these compnents. Whichever way you decided to go, it's critical to get an affiliate marketing system like this in place, if you're at all serious about your business.
