Promoting Affiliate Programs
Many online marketers already have a good idea how to promote affiliate programs. They’ve got a good idea as to what gets results, and what they need to do to be a success story.
But if you are a newbie, there’s a good chance that you will want to know how to get going with affiliate marketing in order to generate a reliable and consistent income.
The great thing is, affiliate marketing isn’t actually that difficult to master, and you can get started easily and quickly.
Of course, selling other people’s products doesn’t produce quite the same results as launching your own products, but unless you’re a product factory, churning out quality product after quality product, you might want to consider promoting other people’s stuff as an affiliate, and pocketing the commissions.
So first off you’ll want to choose a platform (affiliate marketing platform), and at the time of writing this, the two main contenders are Warrior Plus (www.warriorplus.com
) and JVZoo (www.jvzoo.com
You’ll need to register with the site, which is free for both of these, and then you can start promoting as an affiliate.
In order to maximize the chances of making some commissions, you need to get traffic to your offer. When I say the offer, I’m referring to the affiliate offer that you’re promoting.
There are several ways to achieve this, but without a doubt the best is to have your own list, in that particular niche.
My chosen niche is the MMO or Make Money Online niche. I like this niche because there is a serious amount of demand for products in this area.
