by Rahimah Sultan

Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. Just find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a part of the profit for each sale that you make.

 

An affiliate, also known as the publisher, can be a single individual or a company.

 

There are two ways to get started with affiliate marketing. You can become a merchant or an affiliate.

 

Although it’s not easy, you can become an affiliate program merchant and then make money by having affiliates sell your products. Following are the 4 steps to take.

 

1) You need a product idea.

 

Look at what products and services are already available and think about how you can make them better by having something that solves the problems with those products.

 

2) Find out if people want it.

 

Present your idea to people and ask them if they like it and will pay for it.

 

3) Create the product.

 

It can be online courses, ebooks or podcasts/videos.

 

4) Find affiliate program partners.

 

You have to find affiliates to promote your products (affiliate networks can help) who actually have an audience that is interested in what you have to sell. Clickbank and Amazon are examples of networks.

 

There are also 4 steps to take to become an online affiliate marketer.

 

1) Review products in your niche.

 

You can start by looking at the partners in step 4 for becoming a merchant.

 

2) Build an email list with your prospects on it.

 

3) Educate your audience.

 

You can use live webinars, blog posts and social media.

Affiliate marketing is the basis for all other Internet marketing strategies. It originally involved lots of spamming, trademark infringement, false advertising and more. Now it is safer to do business online because of advanced scrutiny of terms and conditions by the merchants. As affiliate marketing opened up more opportunities, it also increased marketing competition.

 

Affiliate marketing was started on music-oriented websites. They placed a list of music albums on their site and paid others to put those links in their websites when a visitor bought an album through their site.

 

In affiliate marketing, the publisher incurs all the cost except that of initial setup and development of the program, which is incurred by the merchant.

by Rahimah Sultan

photo from blog

 

I ran across an article titled 10 Steps to a Successful Affiliate Marketing Strategy that laid out what affiliate marketers needed to do to succeed in 2015 and beyond? The operative words are “and beyond.” The author states, “Many first-time affiliate marketers make the mistake of going one mile wide and one inch deep: trying to dominate forty niches in their first few years.” Marcus Taylor covers ten steps to a successful affiliate marketing strategy that include:
 
Using valuable content, building a brand that adds value to the customer, building a foundation of recurring revenue, and more.

 

He also says you should use more than one traffic source, have a mobile-friendly site, and find products that add value to the site’s readers and that also have the potential to increase the site’s revenue by an order of magnitude. In his “10 Steps to a Successful Affiliate Marketing Strategy” he points out the fact that affiliates need to be creative and outthink the competition.

Affiliate Marketing: Some Myths You Need To Know

by Rahimah Sultan

Are you a brand manager or a marketing director or the all-in-one head person of a start up? Maybe you are considering setting up an affiliate program for your business. There are some misconceptions about affiliate marketing—some myths you need to know.

 

One is that affiliate systems are quick and easy to manage. 2) You need to work in a very popular niche in order to make it work. 3) Affiliate marketing is an old strategy, 4) In order to have success your product has to be on as many sites as possible.

 

As far as affiliate systems being quick and easy to manage, there is a lot of competition. The problem of niches is solvable, affiliate marketing is far from being a thing of the past, and you do not need to have your products on a bazillion sites.

 

Steve Olenski debunks these myths in his article 4 Myths About Affiliate Marketing You Need To Know. There is a lot of competition in affiliate marketing, a lot of companies do not even bother because they think they have too small a market, link building is outdated, and the best thing about affiliate marketing is quality not quantity.

 

For an in-depth understanding of these points you can read the article here.

Affiliate Marketing Mistakes

by Rahimah Sultan

photo from blog

 

Affiliate marketing is a great way for bloggers and other content creators to earn revenue; however, there are plenty of mistakes that can be made when first getting into this business.

 

New people tend to make affiliate marketing mistakes that can be avoided with a little know-how beforehand. Firstly, do not join too many programs. What you should do is select a few reputable networks and start small and focus on them until they start converting. It does not matter what the program is, success is determined more by the strategies used in affiliate marketing rather than the source.

 

You must invest in the proper resources, conduct tracking and know what your competitors are up to, while not copying them. It is also good to get advice from reputable companies.

 

Do not run too many campaigns simultaneously. Concentrate more on strategy and develop a broad knowledge of effective tactics before taking a shot in dark with several campaigns. Good publishers will pursue a strong working knowledge of industry tools prior to launching every campaign they are offered.

 

Not using SEO is another one of the affiliate marketing mistakes made by new comers. SEO is not dead, and it works because it simply connects consumers with the information they are looking for through the words or terms used to find it. Place ads and links exactly where a customer would go to find it.

 

Although you should not run too many campaigns at the same time, do not limit yourself to one category. There will always be spikes and lulls in sales and growth and diversification is necessary. Always remember that affiliates bring the consumers they reach back to the advertiser who is responsible for the actual sales transaction. Affiliates link consumers to products and services.
