Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Please note that this article is about making money with affiliate marketing. This topic is fully covered in 2 products I would highly recommend: hard cash hijack and viral submitter pro. Now let’s get into it…

One of the most widely used forms of IM is affiliate marketing. It’s impossible to tell how many successful IM’ers began with this kind of marketing. The reason so many choose affiliation as their starting point is that it looks easy. It seems like you just put-up some links somewhere because there’s no product to make. Of course you can do this, but if you do you may not make the money you are expecting. You’ll need, among other things, to work hard to make money as an affiliate. So have some tricks on us that you can use to make money and life a bit easier.

First… don’t be a stubborn mule. If an affiliate product, or program, just ain’t working – drop it. Move on. Maybe that program just isn’t for you for some reason that really does not matter. Perhaps the rules are too strict. Perhaps you’re hating on the commissions. Perhaps the products just don’t work for you. Maybe you think the company is poorly managed. Whatever the reason, if a program does not work for you the way you hoped, or if you stop feeling comfortable promoting that company’s products or services, you need to switch to a program that does work for you. If you’re in a positive business relationship, with anyone, and it’s all cool and good – then you’ll be more successful working in it. And choose multiple affiliate programs to sign-up with. One of the best ways to make money as an affiliate marketer is to join at least two or three programs. If one doesn’t perform well, it won’t stop you cold.

If that happens, you can just focus on your other campaigns. If this happens, you’ll find that will help you to keep going and avoid frustration. In time you’ll develop more than one stream of income.

Never give up. There’s a balance and it’s your call because while you don’t want to flog a dead horse, you do want to make sure you’ve tried all you can before declaring a campaign dead. Chances are excellent to 100% that you won’t make huge commissions within a day, or even two or three. In case you come across any programs that offer ‘lifetime’ payments, just remember they take a while to become significant. Don’t jump around – give a program about two months, or so, to become profitable before you move onto your next campaign. Remember, you won’t make really fast money in a few days, usually, so stay with it because it’s normal for things to be slow to take off.

You’ll find there are very many different ways to market as an affiliate. If you choose to market something you have a natural interest in, it can get to a point where it become truly fun and enjoyable. Soon you’ll discover so many ways to promote and make money that you won’t know which one to start with. Always work hard, have some patience, and you’ll see. And then you’ll be a successful affiliate marketer some newb will read about.
