Do You Make These Mistakes With Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is a very lucrative business online, especially where it concerns Affiliate Internet Marketing.
Today I bring you some rare and everyday mistakes that are keeping you from making a killing with affiliate marketing.
The most common mistakes made by most online marketers :
1) You build a really flashy website and is wondering why your not making commissions.
Well, I do believe this one belongs in the number one position, because, it's the killer amongst new comers to the affiliate marketing game.
Don't believe that if you build it, they will come. Your visitors have to know where your website is, and online as well as offline, you have to do some kind of promotions.
Just don't build it, but go out and educate yourself about what it really takes to make it with affiliate marketing.
The points that follows, will give you ideas for getting yourself known as an expert in your field of expertise.
2) Not Posting And Hanging Out In The Forums.
Do you know that all of the top marketers online can be found in some forum online. Yes, it's true.
The forums are where you can go to post questions pertaining to your problems. It doesn't matter what the topic is, you can find a forum online that meets your needs.
There are huge archives of posted questions from other marketers that you can browse through. The forums are where you can go to post questions pertaining to your problems. It doesn't matter what the topic is, you can find a forum online that meets your needs.
Do you know that one very informative topic on a high traffic forum can generate 500 or more hits that same day?
3) Your Not Promoting Any Big Ticket Items.
Now, don't get me wrong here, I am saying that you should promote both high-end as well as low priced products.
But, the tough part is that you need to sell many more low priced products to make a $100 dollars, while selling just one high end product gets the same results.
4) Thinking That You Don't Need To Know Any SEO Tricks.
SEO - Search Engine Optimization is not as difficult as it seems. I am by no means a search engine expert, but I do know what is needed for optimizing my pages so that I can still benefit from all the FREE Search Engine traffic.
Go out and get yourself a SEO book, you only need one, they are all very similar. You just need to know how to write pages that the search engines loves.
5) Never, Posting Articles To The Articles Directories Online.
When I realized the power of posting articles, I was stunned by the amount of traffic I was receiving fro just one article I posted.
Just start by posting a article per week, you will be generating a constant ever increasing flow of visitors to your websites.
6) Not Building You List And Automating The Follow-Up process.
As the saying goes "The Money Lies In Your List". That is so true, if you can build a small list, you will be able to start making money with a list of just 500 members.
That is why your online business can't survive without a automatic responder. If you can't capture your visitors once they are on your site, then they are gone, lost in cyber space, off to the next web site that can solve their problem.
7) Your Not Involved With A Network Marketing Program Online.
I can hear your cries, but If you followed the 6 points described earlier, you will now finally understand why network marketing goes hand in hand with affiliate marketing.
Most, if not all online marketers use some kind of automatic responder or ad tracker service that has a residual program. That is the way to get some residual income from your list while promoting your ad tracker or automatic responder.
If, your not with an ad tracker or automatic responder service that pays residual income, then your loosing affiliate commissions.
Ask yourself, what can implement now from this article?
I do hope you can be honest with yourself and realize why your not making it with affiliate marketing, now, go out there and build your list. Just do something different.
