How to Avoid a Beginners Mistake and Make Money With Affiliate Products
Many people start their online business using affiliate products. They start out full of anticipation and expect to start making big money right away. Unfortunately, it doesn't happen that way for most people. At best, they make one or two sales per month by sending traffic directly to the merchant. This is a mistake that most beginners make. If a potential buyer decides not to make a purchase today, they've lost that prospect forever. That is one of the reasons that most beginners fail.
A better way to make money with affiliate products is to develop your own blog or website. These can be found for free online. Once your site is set-up, find a good autoresponder and put a sign-in box on every page of your site. Instead of driving traffic directly to your affiliate merchants, send all of your traffic you generate directly to your website or blog to subscribe.
Encourage your visitors to sign-in by giving them a free report that is related to your niche. If you cannot make your own free report, look for them on the Internet. There are many good free reports available if you are willing to do the research. Then, on a regular basis, send additional information to your subscribers. Interspersed with your free information, send them sales pieces on the affiliate products that you are recommending. That way, if they decide not to buy anything today, you will have another opportunity to make a sale with the next sales piece that you send out.
Make sure you take care of the people on your list. Never recommend a lousy product to them. By provide them with quality information and good product offers; you will build a relationship with them. This relationship will lead to increased sales and referrals in the future.
This process can't be accomplished in a month, but over the long term, a good list can double or even triple your income. So if you are just starting out online, develop a list and watch your income grow.
