What the F&@# Are you doing?!by John Bell Insidmal Design LLC
I?ve got a bit of a rant here about what I?m seeing on traffic exchanges.
What?s up with all the garbage?
Maybe I?m wrong, but I was always under the impression that affiliate marketing was selling a product for another company to earn a commission.
If that?s true, then how come when I?m surfing through traffic exchanges, 95% of the ads I see don?t say anything about the product they are selling.
I don?t care about some ficticious amount of money I?ll never make selling whatever it is you are selling. How many industries sell products, but don?t actually advertise the product? Have you ever seen a Nike ad that doesn?t show a Nike product, or even the Nike branding? Do their ads all say, you could open a Nike store too and make a gagillion dollars a day? No..
Oh yes, you guys are right, they are the ones doing it wrong.
SELL ME YOUR PRODUCTS!!!
Do you ever wonder why you can?t seem to sell any advertising on that affiliate site? Look at your ads.. are you actually even talking about the advertising service? Do you even USE the advertising service? Lets get real here.
YOU: Selling products for another company to earn a commission.
ME: Buying products from other companies which earns you a commission.
What are the keywords there? PRODUCTS!! If you are going to sell me something, then sell it to me, don?t fill me full of steam about how my $10 will turn into $10,000,000,000,000 a month without ever lifting a finger.
If you are advertising a pay plan, then that?s what people MIGHT be buying.. well guess what happens when they don?t make any money.. they quit.. then you suck, the company sucks, everyone sucks, you told me I would make money and I didn?t, I?m never buying from you again.
If you are advertising a product, then that?s what people are buying.. well guess what happens.. they are getting the product, and then you rock, the company rocks, everyone rocks, you told me I would be getting a product for my money, and I am, I am going to buy from you again.
Does this not make total complete OBVIOUS sense here? Lets get real folks.
In the words of Louise Venison ?You?re doing it all wrong!?
Go back and look at your ads.. are you selling a product or a pay plan? And how exactly is that working out for you?
There?s an old quote that has always proven true for me. ?Successful Affiliate Marketers buy Products, unsuccessful marketers buy opportunities? Which are you selling?
