Then you also must choose a niche, choose a niche you are familiar with. Not just a high-paying niche you don’t know anything about, or worst, you don’t care about. This will absolutely make you fail.
When you choose products to promote, stick to them. A good thing is also that you test the products. Test them to see if they actually keep their promises. If they are as good as said. Marketing and trying to sell products that don’t keep what they promise will cause you to fail. And you don’t want that.
You may manage to sell one or two products but in the long run, you won’t. Trust is number 1. Your customers need to know that they can trust you and that the products you’re promoting and selling actually work. That the products keep what they promise, that they are as good as is said.
When you choose a product to promote take a look at the sales page. Is the sales page good or is it failing to get the message out? There should also be promotional tools like banners, and sales letter that is tested to work is a plus.
So, your affiliate marketing strategy should include:
Niche -Which type of niche you should choose and which type of products within the niche. Which type of programs.
Products – How many products should I promote?
Testing – You should test the products before you start promoting them so you can see that they actually work. It can be a demo or the product itself.
Sales Page / Landing Page – The sales page must be good. Without a good and interesting sales page, the customers will leave.
If you keep to your affiliate marketing strategy you will succeed with your affiliate marketing business. But I can’t promise how much money you will make.
Social Media & Affiliate Marketing
You should use social media to promote your product. Social media is huge and it has no limits on how many people you can reach.
Here are four ways social media can help you to make more affiliate sales:
Automation – Automate your post so you can post around the clock. This will enable you to send out your marketing messages for an extended period of time, come back and analyze your results, optimize these messages and see if there is an improvement. This will cut down your cost and can scale up your success.
Repurpose Your Content – Turn an article into a slideshow or a YouTube video or turn it into an infographic.
Use Hashtags – People on Facebook and Twitter search for posts and info using hashtags. If you know the most relevant hashtags in your niche, you can target those people precisely at the time when they are most interested to know more about your niche.
Content – In any niche there are movers and shakers. There are also credible authorities. Use these people’s content to build up your own authority.
Social media is an excellent opportunity for affiliate marketers to make a large number of direct sales.
In fact, social media is one of the simplest ways to start making money as an affiliate marketer, and therefore social media should be a part of your affiliate marketing strategy.
The Power Of Email Marketing
A lot of marketers and especially affiliate marketers say that email marketing is dead. They could not be more wrong.
Email marketing is known to be one of the main keys for affiliate marketers and some people in fact rake in hundreds to thousands of dollars through email marketing.
Here are three tips on why you should use email marketing in your affiliate marketing strategy:
Stay In Touch – Emails let you stay in touch with your customer. The people on your email list are people who actually want to know more about your business.
Keep On Selling – Email marketing let you keep on selling to them with your emails. You can keep on promoting your products to them.
Cross-Selling – Instead of just constantly selling more products in the future, you can start cross-selling. Cross-selling is used by many sources and is a great way to get more sales.
Basically, email marketing is a vital strategy that many people in this business seem to ignore. This doesn’t mean you should ignore email marketing, you should do email marketing and it can make you lots of money in the long run. I’m pretty sure you have heard the expression “the money is in the list” before…
Don’t Try To Always Sell
This is a common and a big mistake most affiliate marketers do and it will in the end lead to failure.
Your focus should not be trying to sell as much as possible, your focus should be on telling your customers, and visitors why they need this specific product. How this product can help them? People also like to hear what other people have to say about the product you sell. Good reviews from others will help them to decide whether or not to buy this certain product. This is why Amazon is so powerful. These reviews are created by people and those giving the feedback have nothing to gain from what they say about a product. These only help consumers make choices about products that they are thinking about buying.

Also, never tell a visitor to direct by an affiliate product, just recommend a product based on your personal experience. Just tell them how this product can help them, and how they will benefit from it.
