If You Are A Struggling Affiliate Marketer Then Find Out How To Do Affiliate Marketing The Smart Way
So would you like to know how to do affiliate marketing the smart way? Are you an affiliate marketer struggling to make ends meet promoting crappy affiliate products and making measly affiliate commissions?
If yes would you like to know how to do affiliate marketing the smart way and maximize your affiliate marketing efforts?
Affiliate marketing has come a long way over the last few years but you may still be doing the old school methods of just posting your links all over the internet with the hope that people will see what you are promoting and buy it.
It’s like casting your fishing rod into the ocean and hoping that you get a bite. Now you need to be more specific and fish where your audience is hanging out. It is called targeted advertising and the many different platforms available for you to advertise on let you do just that.
But it is not only about targeted advertising, although that is the key, as when you get a bite you have to offer incredible value. People are now savvy and if you just pitch “Buy My Product” to them you will lose them off your hook forever.
So What Do You Do?
First you offer something for free. This could be a report, free consultation or video training series.
Then you follow up with them. You have to realize that they are people so treat them with respect. Give them information about yourself, tips and help with your specific industry, examples on how they can scale up their business and provide solutions to their problem.
It is called relationship building. Get the to know, like and trust you. By doing this you can then pre-sell them onto your products and services and then promote them to turn your leads into customers.
That is he first key point to affiliate marketing the smart way. The other is the products and services that you promote.
If you are promoting small value one time offers which generate small commissions then you have to work incredibly hard in your marketing efforts.
What you need is a sales funnel in place. This is a range of products that can be up-sold to the customer when they buy the first product. What you need is a sales funnel with about 7-8 products which you can make commissions on as the customer goes through the funnel.
A perfect sales funnel would start off with a free offer which leads the customer up to products with a sales value of between $20,000.00 – $30,000.00.
By promoting a funnel like this you have the opportunity of making thousands of dollars on one sale. The beauty is that you don’t have to do anymore work than initially getting the lead into the funnel. Your marketing costs are the same as if you are promoting a $27 e-book or the free offer but the return on investment is potentially massive.
