Affiliate Marketing the Psychology Of!
For those who don't know, affiliate marketing is the kind of business in which you sell other people's products and/or services in exchange for a fraction of the profits. So, if you are an affiliate you don't have to create anything. You don't have to own products or services. All you do is to advertise.
There are some myths in affiliate marketing, which attract a lot of people to it believing they are true. First is they think managing an online business is easy and second, they think that one can make a fortune through online marketing in an instant. Probably not even 10% of those who are into affiliate marketing became rich overnight.
There may be some who fortunately achieved overwhelming success in just a short span of time after setting up an affiliate program, but not a majority of them can confidently say they only had luck. Anyone who is successful in this kind of business would say he worked hard to get to where he is right now. Success in affiliate marketing takes time and hard work, but it's worth it.
Affiliate Marketing is one of the hottest subjects on the Internet today. Some people think that it is hard to make money this way, others say it is very easy. My opinion is that there is money to be made in almost any kind of industry. You must just find a way to simplify your work and profit more from your efforts. So, the point is to use leverage, lots and lots of leverage.
If you are planning to start an affiliate program, one of the things you have to consider is having your own website, not just an ordinary website but a professional looking one. How do you build an affiliate marketing website? What are the easy steps to build one? First, you must have already decided on the theme or niche of your website. It would be better if you already have an idea what products or services to promote as this would help you plan the design and lay-out of your web pages.
The next thing to do is to choose a domain name and get it hosted.
The domain name is a unique name used to label the actual address of your website on the Internet. In deciding what domain name to register, look into the type of products you are endorsing and the theme of your site. Having the right keywords in your domain name would give you better chances of drawing more visitors to your website.
Also, choose a top level domain or extension, such as .com because it is more popular. In selecting your web host, consider the security of servers and up time guarantees.
Then, how much money can you make? You can make a lot of money. The good thing about it is that you don't have to deal with anybody as an affiliate.
The owners of the products do all the customer service, deal with the refunds and process the payments. As I said above, all you do is to advertise. So, you are making piles of cash from products and services that you didn't create and that you don't own.
You may ask, yes but exactly how much can I earn? Some affiliate programs pay as little as just 10% of the sales price. Others pay as much as 75%.
Then, imagine that you join this affiliate program which is paying you 50% for every sale you generate. If you are selling a product that is retailing for $50, then you will make $25 per sale. If you sell one hundred products in one month, you will make $2,500/month.
