How To Promote Your Affiliate Link?

by Benny Priyatna Never Give upYour Dream Get Action Today
Affiliate marketing is  one of the most powerful and easiest models online to generate massive cash quickly, fact is you can get started in minutes from now without the hassle of creating your own products or websites.

Here are some tactics you can use today to promote any affiliate program with:

Tactic #1: Your Own Opt-In List

If you've your own existing opt-in list this would obviously be the quickest way to start. However I'd like to provide you with some ideas to maximize the response and results you wouldn't otherwise get if you never applied them.

It's always a good tactic to provide some kind of time-sensitive bonuses to entice your list to buy through your affiliate link. It has always work and it'll continue to work.

You should also do at least 3 follow-up mailings as statistics have proven that you will get the most sales from your 2nd and 3rd mailings.

Tactic #2: Using Google AdWords

You can start promoting any affiliate program in less than 15 minutes with pay-per-click advertising, especially Google AdWords.

Without going into boring details, you can still advertise affiliate programs by using landing pages customized to the affiliate program you're promoting.

Tactic #3: Article Marketing

This is one tactic you got to get started on because it works.

The key to successful article writing is to provide real information and tips. Make sure it doesn't sound like an outright sales pitch. Any recommendations you make should be added value to the article. The recommendation should not be its main purpose.

Tactic #4: Leverage On Your Existing Web Pages

There're 3 main ways to go about doing this...

One is to simply promote your affiliate programs on highly trafficked and relevant pages of your website. Check your website statistics to see which pages visitors view the most. These are great target areas for your promotions, especially if they are relevant to the affiliate product in question.

Two, recommend affiliate products on your thank you pages. After a visitor has made a purchase from you or sign up for your ezine, all you've to do is add in a short recommendation of an affiliate product prominently on the thank you page.

Third, use your custom error (404) pages as affiliate marketing tools. This is the page that shows up when visitors enter a wrong URL or extension, there's no point in wasting this space so why not use it to promote an affiliate product?

Tactic #5: Capture Exit Traffic On Demand

You can quickly make extra affiliate sales just by using an exit window or pop up window to promote your affiliate programs.

While there're popup killers out there, you'll be surprised just how many percent of people actually install them.

Fact is, pop ups, especially exit pop ups still produce good results. Stick with one tasteful pop-up targeted to your visitors and you’ll see great results.

Tactic #6: Recommend affiliate products in your 'thank you emails'.

This is a no-brainer, whether you’re saying thanks for joining your ezine or for buying a product, always give your email recipients an affiliate recommendation for a targeted product you've personally found useful.

You can also create autoresponder courses on topics related to the affiliate program you're promoting as a form of follow-up preselling.

That's it for now and I hope this article has been useful. Go and profit from your affiliate programs with confidence!

A very well written article although I do not agree with all. "generate massive cash quickly" is more an exception than a rule. Most people will need to work hard and consistent before they earn a decent living with it. But the tips in your article are very useful and will bring results and applied consistently.

Fulltime Online Marketer and Program Owner

Amsterdam, New Zealand | Online Network Marketing


I am a full time Network marketer and program owner working from home in New Zealand. I have 22 years real estate and marketing experieince. I have been the top porducer and recruiter in various programs and have now taken on the role of Program Owner and the admin role to my members.

I am about getting paid daily so have created my LIFETIME programs to pay and reward my valued members on the day they cycle.

HERE IS MY PHILOSOPHY

I don't do sales...I do marketing. I don't do cold calls...people call me. I don't sell...I show. I don't enroll people...I sponsor them.

I don't wish I was online...I get a website. I don't hope for traffic and visitors...I advertise. I don't email...I use an auto responder. I don't spam...I have 100% op tins.

I don't join deals...I join businesses. I don't do it tomorrow...I do it today. I don't spend money...I invest it in my business. I don't waste money...I make it.

I don't get rich quick...I build cash flow and wealth. I don't wish it was easier...I make myself better. I don't want it to work...I make it work. I don't hope for success...I create success.

I don't wait for a leader...I become the leader. I don't follow...I lead. I don't tell people what to do...I show and mentor them. I don't watch others...I take action.

I don't chase my friends...I just show them what I do. I don't chase prospects...I just show them what I do. I don't chase leaders...I just show them what I do. I don't chase anyone...I just show them what I do.

I don't quit...I work harder. I don't quit...I learn more skills I don't quit...I take more action. I don't quit...I try again.

When I don't quit....I succeed

I am available to everyone with a desire to succeed. If you need a quick fix I can't help, if you want a long term income I CAN HELP!

I agree with you for everything but don't with "Tactic #5: Capture Exit Traffic On Demand". It is annoying for your visitors. With this tactic you will lose them for sure.

I don't watch others...I take action. ..." etc I think what you said must be etched in gold Add to it the dictum that .."do what it takes to fulfil the desire needs and waants of others with May I help you attitude "

Nice tips. However, you should note that several million other people are doing just the same thing.

So, what sets you apart from the others?

Search for it. When you find it you will hit it big on the internet.

What is "IT"?

I am also looking for it.

So?

Keep on searching.

@bronnamdi: You said things I had in mind. True, we are all searching for "IT" and it eludes us. As you rightly said, these tips are standard and recommended everywhere and several people are doing the same thing. People should write about how they did it rather than how to do.

Very informative article, well done. However, I would like to add a point about Google Adwords. For beginners I highly discourage using them until they fully understand how it works and how to use that tactic to maximum potential.Otherwise the just inviting disappointments and make a big hole in their pocket. Thanks for sharing Benny.

Great points, Benny. My affiliate program works differently than most others, which is why I don't immediately refer them to my affiliate link. I allow them to become visually connected first, after which they can decide if they'd like to view the company's website. This method has worked quite well for me.

You forgot the most important one. Engage in social media (the coorect way, not by spamming links). Social marketing did more for my business than all the above.
