affiliate marketingDo you find that when you are “starting” to create your own product to sell online, “finishing” it seems to take longer than you thought, it may never get to happen?

One of the things about affiliate marketing is —

** You don’t have to create your own products **

If you are like me, when I first started and still when I am busy, I find the idea of creating a product can be an overwhelming, exciting, and even an exasperating task. We can all come up with great excuses:

* I don’t have any good ideas!

* I’m not a writer!

* There’s too much competition!

* I don’t know how to set everything up!

* I can’t figure out where to start!

  • It’s too hard!

I’m sure with a few minutes of thinking about it, we could come up with a list of many more delaying tactics.

Many of these delaying tactics are helped with a coach. Helping you through your fear and guiding you with the technology part. That’s how I started to get through these excuses.

However, with affiliate marketing…

1. You don’t need your own products. Read more

No cookie cutter ad or email will perform as well as one you’ve written specifically for your own email list.

Let me ask you a quick question: Do I know your list members? Seriously. Do I know them? Do I know what they
want? Do I know what they respond to? Do I know their buying patterns? Do I know what style of writing they
like?

Do I know them?

Of course not.

So, how can I possibly write them the BEST promotional email message? How can I write something that is specifically for them, without knowing them?

Answer is, I can’t.

And yet, that’s how many people approach their lists. They join an affiliate program; grab a pre-written solo mailing from the author of the product and they blast it out to their list. Read more

Show the Carrot

Instead of threatening to prevent people from commenting, you may want to consider giving them a positive incentive to comment.

For instance, you could put some lower bound on the number of comments you must receive before you will create another post.
Example:
You might say that you will only post after you have received at least 30 comments from readers.

With this said, it is important that you follow the response to this policy over time. Make sure that readers aren’t simply posting “good work” or “nice post,” but instead are actively participating. Otherwise, this system will not work and you may need to switch to something else. Read more

Making money as an affiliate isn’t all about the marketing. It’s also about choosing profitable products. Here’s how…

Tip #1: Choose products with proven track records. If you’re choosing products on Clickbank.com, then choose those at the top of their categories (i.e., the best sellers) and those with high gravity numbers (between about 75 and 150). In addition, ask the vendor about his conversion and refund rates.

Tip #2: Do NOT choose products based on price alone. Big price plus big commission percentages equals big profits, right?

NOT always. Read more
