The Affiliate Winners of 2008
â¬ÅUsually big changes in life comes from inspiration or desperation
A new year starts in a few days and for the winners of 2008 who make plans for the next 365days they should also have one more think in their mind:
By the year 2010, some projections say that in the US alone, affiliate commissions will top $60 BILLION.
How'd you like to get in on some of THAT! So, Why do some people pull in $10,000 per month in affiliate commissions, while others barely make $200/month?
The $10K & up crowd know how the affiliate game REALLY works, the others don't.
You have 2 choices...
1.)Keep doing what you're doing & nothing is going to change.
2.)Do what the most successful marketers on the internet have done & learn the basics of affiliate marketing from the ground up.
Online affiliate marketing is one of the most effective and lucrative ways of making money. It gives everybody a chance to make a profit through the Internet. Since there are no worries about product delivery and customer service, more and more people are involved in this business.
However, like all businesses, there are lots of pitfalls in the online affiliate marketing business as well. Committing these mistakes will have a large portion of their profit taken away. That is why it is better to avoid them than be regretful in the end.
Mistake1: THIS IS A REAL BUSINESS LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
Do you have a business plan for the next 90 days? 6 months? Where are you going to be at 31December of 2008? How much money do you want to make? What is your budjet? How much time is it going to take you per day?
Simple questions haa? Yeaa butâ¬Â¦do you have the answers? If not, do something now! Spend some time for your self and your net biz. Holidays now, right? Here is your change!
â¬Åif you don't have a plan for success be sure that you have a plan for failureâ¬Â¦
Mistake2: Choosing the wrong product to promote
Many people want to earn from affiliate marketing as fast as possible. In their rush to make money fast, they tend to choose a bandwagon product without actually considering if the product appeals to them. This is not a wise move.
Find one or more target markets that are incredibly passionate about whatever they are interested in. To make sure you make money with your marketing, the target market should be irrationally passionate about the subject, and if possible, you'd want them to actually be irrationally psycho about the subject area .Then, Find out exactly what these target markets already want and just supply them what they already want to buy now
Mistake3: Joining too many affiliate programs. Since affiliate programs are very easy to join, you might be tempted to join multiples affiliate programs to try to make the most profit. After all, there's nothing to loose right?
True, that is a great way to have multiple sources of income. However, joining multiple programs and attempting to promote them all at the same time will prevent you from concentrating on each one of them.
The best way to get excellent result is by joining just one program that pays a 50% commission at least.
Then give it your best effort by promoting the product enthusiastically. As soon as you see that it is already making a reasonable profit, then you can consider joining another affiliate program.
Mistake4: Not buying the product or service for yourself. Try the product or service personally before you sign up as an affiliate to see if it is really delivering what it promises. If you have done so, then you are one of the credible and living testaments aware of its advantages and disadvantages. Your customers will then feel the sincerity and truthfulness in you and this will trigger them to try them out for themselves.
Many affiliate marketers make these mistakes and are paying dearly for their actions. So, do not make these mistakes
Time is the keyâ¬Â¦Give your self sometime to organize the right plan. Take the time to analyze your marketing strategy and check if you're in the right track. And don't forget: always be motivated and find the right tools to make your plan better â¬Â¦EDUCATION IS REALLY IMPORTANT!
