Participate in web discussion boards and online forums. When I first joined
an affiliate program, I read as much information as possible in the discussion
This is a great discussion board to lurk in and understand the affiliate program and
how things work.
Once you get enough confidence to post your own comments, try a forum more
like a Home Business Forum. This forum lets you include a link to your web site and
any personal signature you choose, but is monitored. I included my web site link
under my comment so that other could click on the link if they chose. Best part was
that the search engine spiders took notice too.
Advertise your link in your signature file with every email you write.
attention-grabbing headline for them to visit your affiliate site. Also make sure your
signature file doesn't get too big.
Your link should look something like this:

By redirecting your affiliate number and making your address be
part of your web site, you will not loose out on any affiliate commissions.Create unique affiliate program ads and your own banners if possible. If
every other affiliate is using the same ad you are using, many web visitors may leave
your web site quicker than you think. Give yourself an edge over your competition,
by making an ad that makes your website stand out from the others. Use a personal testimonial ad. You should only use this if you've actually
bought the product or service. Tell people what kind of results and benefits you've
received using the product. This can be VERY powerful.Trade links with other webmasters who are promoting the same types of
products you are promoting. You want to attract the same type of people that would

Once your website gets ranked by Google,
you will find more and more webmasters requesting link exchanges to your website..Create a newsletter or an electronic magazine (e-zine) advertising your
website. Use your newsletter to advertise the affiliate programs you've joined. Or
offer a free e-book in your newsletter with the advertisement and links of your
affiliate web site. The free e-book should draw your target audience to down-load it
instantly. You can also submit your newsletter to directories and start a traffic virus
getting people to visit your website. Offer free online services, utilities or useful website links from your web
site. They could be search engine submissions, language translations, web site tune
ups. Make sure that the service or utility that you are offering them is something
you would personally use and is of an interest to your website. There, make sure to
add as many of your affiliate links as possible so that people can see them and click
on them. Start your own affiliate program directory. If you have joined more than
one affiliate program, list them all in a directory format on your web site. Advertise
your free affiliate program directory to others so that they will want to be part of
your directory as well. Write articles and submit them to websites that do accept them is another
great way to drive more traffic and increase your affiliate commissions. The MOST
important thing to do is to add a "resource box" in the bottom of every article that
you write. This has been used and proven to work by all top marketing gurus online.

When You COULD Build a Business?
THIS is BY FAR the most effective way to increase your backlinks! Make sure you practice good follow up skills and get back to all of your
affiliates within 24 hours or sooner. If you are available to them, they will want to
stick around. You will be able to answer questions just like you do with your own
