years I have found success in affiliate marketing in different ways. I have kept a list of these successes. It is now time for me to share that list. The following could be seen as a kind of
shortcut to a better life as an affiliate marketer. I wish that I had had this list when I first
started out. They should keep you from
the disasters that I faced. Still, it
was through those disasters that I became the man I am.
The affiliate is your best friend. Always treat the affiliate with as much
respect as possible. They are bringing
you customers. If a man showed up at
your front door with a bunch of customers, youd treat him like a king. Do the same for the affiliate.
Dont be afraid to fire an affiliate for talking
smack about your company. You cant let
an affiliate hang around if they are bad for business. It can be hard to get rid of a company that
you have built up a relationship with, but sometimes you just have to do it.
Marketing is a diverse field, and affiliate
marketing shouldnt be any different.
Use every form of marketing youve ever heard of. Even if your affiliates are uncomfortable
with your form of advertising, use it until they get comfortable. Therere a lot of different things to try out
there in marketing. Start now.
Never stop researching. Even after you start an ad campaign, you
should always be doing research. Find
out what people think of it. Then,
change what you are doing to make it better.
Thats how an ad has a long lifespan.
Its evolving with the audience for the audience.
Marketing should work with the developers. They need to know what you know, and you need
to know what they know. They came up
with the product, so they can be a treasure trove of information about it. You should let them tell you all about the
product. By the end of your time at a
company, you should be able to build the product you were selling.
Get to know the affiliates product like it was
your own. You will be better able to
advertise through the affiliate if you know a lot about them.
Go back to the beginning. If an affiliate marketing campaign has
suddenly broken down, go back to how it started. Figure out what worked, and see if you can
bring it back to that.
not seem like much knowledge, but it took a while to accumulate. I hope that you appreciate it. These points should be reviewed from time to
time. Try to incorporate them into your
everyday working schedule. The better
you can exemplify these points, the better affiliate marketer you will be. Remember, its not about making the sale;
its about making the sale. Customers
are people, so dont let them get away from you. A true customer is there for life.
