Be A Super Affiliate With These Two Powerful Secrets
If ninety five percent of affiliate marketers are not making a living,
it's because it's not as easy as gurus want to make you believe. To
become a super affiliate, there is much more to do than pay per click
advertising or search engine optimization.
After several years online, I discovered a lot of secrets and tricks that allowed me to skyrocket my income by ten folds.
Here are some of the major mistakes made by affiliate marketer newbies...
1. Selling instead of pre-selling
The majority of affiliates are trying to sell the product to their visitors instead of pre-selling. Well, it's not their fault, because it's not easy to learn about pre-selling on the Internet.
This skill is the most important affiliate marketing weapon, and it may be first reason for failure online. When you are trying to sell, you will probably lose the customer because he is going to be hit by a second sales message when he click through your link and land on the merchant's page.
You should only warm up the visitor with a review or recommendation about the product you are promoting. This is your job as an affiliate.
Let the selling part for the merchant, he knows what he is doing, don't worry for him.
2. Failure to capture email addresses
Super affiliates don't only promote! They are also building their own business by capturing leads. In other words, they build a loyal list of subscribers.
After sometimes, they will be able to promote at the push of a button, and earn money within minutes without spending money on advertising. Building your subscriber base is the key, so don't neglect this crucial part of the affiliate marketing business.
You shouldn't use direct linking, except if you already have a list, and you are already profitable.
Here is a simple tip that you can implement today:
If you are doing any pay per click advertising, build your own landing page. Like this, you will be able to add Google analytics codes on your page and start testing your advertising efforts. It's well worth it, so do your homeworks if you want to become a high earner affiliate.
If you are doing search engine optimization, be sure to add an opt in form on your webpage (at the top). When you do this, your income will increase. If you don't know it yet, "the money is in the list".
Build a list as soon as possible, and be sure to send them good content... along with your affiliate links.
