If you're looking for affiliate marketing tips that will help you make more sales, this is the place to be!
These 3 tips I actually heard from one of my coaches, a guy who's made 6 figures in more than one Affiliate Marketing venture.
So I feel very confident in passing on these strategies to you.
As you'll see, 2 of these affiliate marketing tips will help you make more sales almost immediately.
The other one is more of a long-term strategy but is the #1 key to maximizing your success in Affiliate Marketing.
But before we get to it…
How Do You Become An Affiliate?
Let's start with the basics…
When you become an affiliate with a company, you agree to promote one or more of their products by sharing the word of your experiences and results.
In return, the company will send you a commission (a percentage of the sale, usually 20-50%) when something you promote is purchased.
It's a sweet deal all around.
How can you become an affiliate?
Many companies now offer the chance to become an affiliate partner.
There's usually a link somewhere on their website where you can get information and sign up.
As an example, here's a shot of Amazon's website, showing the affiliate link at the bottom.
3 Affiliate Marketing Tips To Get Results FAST
Here are 3 of my best affiliate marketing tips that will help you get your very first sales or boost the results you're already getting…
Affiliate Marketing Tip #1: Look For Affiliate Launches
When someone launches a new product or service, this is often the best time to maximize your affiliate sales.
Because quite simply, it's during a launch when the buyer will usually get the best price and bonuses for that product.
Also, oftentimes the seller will provide their affiliates with marketing aids to help them promote, such as email copy, social media status updates, and graphics.
When you see a product you wish to promote is launching, jump on it!
Affiliate Marketing Tip #2: Use a 2-Step Method of Promotion
Here's what most Affiliate Marketers do…
They place an ad of some sort and they include their affiliate link, which sends people right to the offer.
Here's what SMART Affiliate Marketers do…
They insert themselves between the ad and the offer.
The link they put in their ad (or promotion) goes to a video of them talking about the product.
They talk about their experiences and results with the product if they have them.
They tell the viewer why the product will be beneficial for them.
And most importantly,
They prepare the visitor for the next page (either a sales page or opt in page), so the person clicking the link isn't at all surprised at what they find next.
You see, when people are surprised, they usually don't buy.
The purpose of the 2-step method is to inject your thoughts and experience into the process and to prepare the viewer.
It's a huge strategy that very few affiliate marketers actually do.
But it pays off big time!
If you want more details on how to deploy the 2-step method into your Affiliate Marketing promotions, I did a complete blog post on it earlier this year.
Affiliate Marketing Tip #3: Build an Audience of Prospects Who Trust You Enough To Buy
This is a longer-term strategy, but it's the key to maximizing your success in Affiliate marketing.
Building a list or audience like this takes time but is well worth it.
It all starts with a Lead Magnet, a free offer you provide people in exchange for their information (name, email, optional phone number).
Once they “opt-in” (provide their information), you can begin sending them emails containing value and training, building that all-important trust factor.
Lead Magnets don't have to be long or fancy…
But they do have to solve a common problem for people in your niche.
And they certainly have to deliver on what you promised when asking for someone's information.
