Affiliate marketing works effectively for the merchant and the affiliate. To the first, he gains opportunities to advertise his products to a larger market, which increases his chances to earn. The more affiliate websites or hard-working affiliates he gets, the more sales he can expect. By getting affiliates to market his products and services, he is saving himself time, effort and money in looking for possible markets and customers. When a client clicks on the link in the affiliate website, purchases the product, recommends it to others who look for the same item or buys it again, the merchant multiplies his chances of earning. On the other hand, the affiliate marketer benefits from each customer who clicks on the link in his website and who actually purchases the product or avails of the service provided by the merchant. In most cases, the affiliate gets commision per sale, which can be fixed percentage or fixed amount.

If you want to be an affiliate marketer and make fortunes out of the Internet, you may follow the following three most basic and easiest ways to start an effective affiliate marketing program. First is to identify a particular thing you are interested in or passionate about so you won’t be bored and forced to develop your affiliate web site later on. Focusing on a specific area you know very well will help you bring out your best without much risks and effort. You can add a personal touch to your site and give your visitors who are possible buyers an impression that you are an expert in your field. In this way, you gain their trust and eventually encourage them to buy the products you endorse. Next is to look for good paying merchants and products or services related to your interest and create now a website. In choosing the products, you must also consider its conversion rate—the number of visitors-turned-buyers. There are various affiliate networks and affiliate solution providers that can give you info on the most profitable products and best paying merchants. The key here is, be wise enough to choose the right one.

Now that you have decided where to concentrate, have chosen the products to endorse and the merchant you are supporting and have created your own web site with top level domain name and reliable hosting, you are ready to promote. This is a crucial task, since it is through this that you would be able to increase traffic to the business website, sales and of course, profit. In affiliate marketing, it is possible to earn large sums of money in a short span of time especially when you’re endorsing high-priced items. Expensive products are hard to sell; however, with the right marketing strategies and sales techniques, you can draw visitors to the merchant’s site and make them buy the products. How to promote the products, though, would need a separate discussion. Continue to educate yourself by reading books or other articles online about the best advertising techniques.

Keep in mind, there is no facile and quick path towards success. Affiliate marketing may seem very tempting due to numerous encouraging testimonies of merchants and affiliate marketers alike who have benefited from it, but it entails great deal of hard work and persistence. Likewise, you need to be creative, flexible and willing to embrace new ideas to market your partners’ products until you find the perfect strategy that works for a specific market that you are targeting. Neither signing up for an affiliate program nor copying ads and leading others towards the merchants’ site doesn’t guarantee success yet. Many affiliate marketers fail to understand this, so when they don’t make sales, they quit, look for other programs and repeat the same mistake. In the end, they conclude that affiliate marketing is just one of those scams in the Internet. Even as you sleep, you can work your way to great financial success if you employ the right strategies in affiliate marketing. Be creative, be smart and surely, you’ll achieve your goals.

    Hi Kanicen, I’m Devan, from Malaysia, first of all, I want to thank you for the posts, on your blog, I especially liked the article submission site links. Here’s the thing, I’m pretty new to internet marketing, just started out 6 or so months ago, and I’m not doing it full time, because i’m still an 18 yr old student, I got hitched from going to one of Dechen Lau’s Seminars, (i reckon you know him). The problem with article submission is that alot of article submission sites actually weed out articles that are posted to many sites, and deem them downright unoriginal. Search engines penalises sites that have common keywords linking to them, so the articles may get rejected, if its initially accepted. I’m using an article submission software, and couldn’t even get one of my articles accepted. But, I found a workaround for this problem, I don’t know if you know this, but there’s been a new software called the ‘content spooler’ that actually creates hundreds of variations of keywords and keyphrases to one single article, giving you more than 100, original, unique articles! that you can submit to hundred different sites, that will absolutely accept it! The reason i’m telling you this is that your blog has been an inspiration, and a go to place for me to learn internet marketing from, I’ learn more from your posts than Dechen Lau’s seminar. you’ll see what i mean when you go here :

    I know you have the plr membership online website, and I’m sure you will increase your profit by tenfolds if you utilize ‘content spooler’ for your articles. It’s not the type of software you would want others to know abt, what I’m asking in return is that if you purchase it, please let me download the content spooler from you, because I just blew my last riggit on paypal purchasing more than 500 ebooks, softwares, and whatnot for my website http://www.internetcashmonster.com , and I dont own a credit card, so its impossible to reload my paypal account with cash right now. I think it is priced at 29. USD, but on ebay, there’s a user who is selling it for only 7 USD. Search on ebay for ‘content spooler’. My email is internetcashmonster@yahoo.com

    I know this is pretty off the wall, but Please contact me to give me the link for content spooler if you decide to purchse and help me.
    Thank you very much!
