Affiliate Income Secrets
Before diving into the secrets of making affiliate
income, first it's best to define what an affiliate
An affiliate program is simply a program that allows
other website owners to earn a commission from a sale
of another website owners product simply by placing
a linking code on their website. If a visitor clicks
on that link and makes a purchase, than the affiliate
makes a sale but also the person promoting that affiliates
product will make a commission from that sale simply
by refering that visitor to that particular link.
It's a clean and easy way to add some extra income
to your webite. But best of all, making money online
through affiliate programs is simple and fun.
There are tons of marketing strategies to improve
your income through the promotion of various affiliate
programs, however it's best to test out various methods
before you settle on a single one.
One of the best methods of promoting an affiliates
product is through an opt-in page also known as a
newsletter sign-up page or name squeeze page. Whatever
name you choose to refer to it as, the main purpose
is to gather the name of your visitor so that you
can later follow-up with them. The page of this opt-in
or name squeeze site provides key information about
what they are going to get by signing up.
The key to an effectively written page that draws
in sign-ups are those that include the following:
An Attention-grabbing Headline: This will tell the
visitor what you're going to do for them and how you
plan to solve their problem or how you plan to teach
them how to do a certain task.
Bullet Points: Tell them what it is that they will
get by signing up.
Simple Sign-up Box: This is the box where they can
enter their name and email address. Ensure you place
an anti-spam notice here ensuring them that you will
not sell or rent their name to a third-party provider,
nor will you send them junk mail. This clears up any
scepticism they might have.
Another great way to promote an affiliate's product
is by writing a review of their product.
But don't write a bunch of reviews on the same page.
Consider writing your review as a single paged website
that is promoting the product you are selling through
that review. The advantage to creating a singe-page
website review is that you can get highly targetted
traffic and present that traffic with the exact information
they are looking for. Your website visitors will be
focused on that single page. They won't be distracted
by other links and information. This focused strategy
will make them more opt to buy the product that you
You could also consider offering a bonus if they
purchase through your link. But don't make it too
obvious that you're trying to get the sale. Be natural
in your speech. But best of all, make sure you try
the product first before writing your review. This
ensures that your review sounds believable, honest
and genuine - adding that extra bit of trust that
your visitor needs to make their purchase.
