One of the greatest advantages of Affiliate Marketing is that you do not need to set up your own Website and do not have to worry about handling online customers or the upkeep and maintenance of the Website.
This is among the easiest ways to make money online today. Assuming you happen to be already into a joint venture partner program, what would be the next thing you may want to do? Double, or even triple, your revenue, right? How would you do that?
Here are some powerful techniques to increase your affiliate sales instantaneously.
1. Know the very best Affiliate Program and products to promote.
Obviously, you will want to promote a product that will make you the greatest profits in the shortest time possible.
There are several things to consider in selecting this type of program. Choose those that have a large commission structure. Promote products that are related to your target niche.
Select an Affiliate Program with a solid track record of paying their affiliates on time. If you see that a program is not profitable, you should stop wasting money on it and instead search for better ones.
There are thousands of affiliate programs online which you can choose from. You may want to select the best to avoid losing your advertising bucks. It is highly likely that you will be competing with other affiliates which are promoting the same product.
If you provide your audience with a free e-book about the product you happen to be promoting, you should be able to distinguish yourself from the other affiliates. In this free e-book, you should provide some valuable information and state why you recommend this product. In offering this free e-book, you will receive more credibility and customers will confide in you and will buy whatever you are offering.
2. Collect and save the e-mail addresses of those who download your free e-book.
It is proven that people do not make a purchase the first time they see or hear about a product. You may have to send out emails more than six times to make a sale. This is the simple reason why you need to collect the contact information of people who downloaded your free report and e-book. You can subsequently make follow-ups on these contacts to remind them about the product and ask them to buy from you.
It is very important to collect the contact information of a prospect before sending them to the vendor’s website. Keep in mind that you are providing free advertisement with the product’s owners. You are paid only when you make a sale.
If you send prospects straight to the vendors, it is likely that they might steal your sale. Unfortunately, a lot of this does happen in the industry. But when you capture your prospect’s contact information, you can also promote other products to them and as a result, earn recurrent commissions as opposed to a one-time sale only.
3. Ask for a higher commission from Vendors.
If you happen to be already successful with a particular promotion, make an attempt and approach your vendor and negotiate a higher rate of commission especially if you have a high track record of sales. If the vendor is smart, they will likely approve your request instead of losing potential sales.
Keep in mind that the vendor does not have much to lose except to gain more sales and at the end more profits, so don’t be hesitant about asking for an increase in your rate of commissions. Just try to be reasonable about it.
4. Write strong PPC (pay per click) Traffic ads.
PPC traffic is one of the most effective means of making more money online in affiliate sales. However, your PPC campaigns have to manage properly. It is very important to monitor which keywords are profitable and to dispose of those that are not or you could lose a lot of money. My favorite source of PPC traffic is Google AdWords and Bing Ads and recently I have had a lot of success with 7search.
Try out these strategies and see the difference it could make in boosting your commission earnings in the short term.
