Working as affiliate marketing, I always refer to Clickbooth Blog. Clickbooth is a CPA (Cost per Acquisition or Cost per Action) Network. It is the place for you who want to learn to be affiliate marketer. On TemplatePanic itself, I also put some affiliate marketing links. I have been learning to be affiliate marketing too, and earned some cash. Not much, but hopefully these tips can help you in doing your affiliate marketing.
You have to be Different
The company (merchant), the other affiliate marketers, and you are selling the same product. How can you make people buy from you instead of buying from others? You have to be different. Have you ever read same emails promoting the same product from different people? They are the same because they use the same material provided by the merchant. You need to rewrite the proposal, hire someone to write for you if needed and edit your campaigns.
Sell the product with your heart. You need to market it as you are an expert in this thing. Add more bonuses if necessary. Share your success story and give useful tips. It will boost your credibility and people will look at you.
As affiliate marketer you need to think about new ideas to promote your product differently. Do brainstorms for more marketing creative ideas. Joining forums and look for active members. Approach them professionally and ask them to do a joint venture and always learn new things.
Being a Leader
You have to think that you are the business owner. You lead the business. You don’t need to spend too much time on budgeting and small details about cost. Give that part to someone else. As a leader you need to be more focus on the members, satisfying needs and understanding the market.
