Affiliate Program are the easiest way to make a substantial
income on the internet.
Affiliate Program have exploded on the internet. Thousand of
people join them every day. Amazon.com is probably the best
example of such phenomenal success.
If the affiliate program is so popular and so widely available
and booming like mushroom...Why do most affiliate have a hard
time making $100 per month?
And some have never receive a check ? It's probably because
they are not effective in their marketing campaign or doing
noting at all.
But some affiliates are making big bucks. They are the one with
an income of ($100,000 and over per year). There is also a big
majority who still make a good income (around $10 000 to $75
000 a year).
Of course the vast majority of affiliate will never make that
much money. They fail miserably.
So what is wrong with them?
THEY DON'T SET GOALS
Most people fail at anything because most people don't have
a clear vision of where they are heading. They don't take the
time to learn and experiment. They give up too easily.
Yes, it feels "unproductive" to prepare and set up
a system... But it's how the successful succeed.
The solution? Planning and learning.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT AFFILIATE PROGRAM
Choosing the best companies is an art in itself. Choose affiliate
program that are already successful and well established like
SFI. Choose the one that offer good training and good marketing
Successful affiliates select the best companies. They use new
ideas and creativity to attract customers. They never give up.
DEVELOP A GOOD WEBSITE
Lot's of people don't know how to design a website. Or don't
have the money to hire a webmaster. Even the ones who can design
a website. They design poor content or poor design. Produce
low value gateway pages. They use free web hosting. They don't
master the search engine.
The solution? Take what you know, what you love, and turn it
into a Theme-Based Content Site. Attract highly targeted, interested
customers, provide solid value through content, then refer them
to your affiliated merchants.
Having lot's of traffic to your website is a big challenge.
But it is essential to be successful. Or at least to make a
reasonable amount of money.
You have to make your site "search engine friendly".
You need content for the search engine to spider your website.
You need to know how your webpage is index and how well it is
ranked on the SE to better perform.
Use every marketing method to drive traffic.
Viral Marketing (EBooks, Freeware etc.)
Offline as well. (Business Cards, Flyers, Radio Spots etc.)
Affiliate Program are great. You can really make a substantial
income at almost no cost. This is the simplest way to start
a business. You can really succeed if you keep learning and
