Marketing As Affiliate
OK so your an affiliate marketer...so what! You have a product to promote but just how will you promote it?
Will you engage in social media link tactics, will you write blogs filled with links, will you complete a compelling article that promotes you as an author, will you create a video that highlights your product or will you simply spam your email list with a product they really dont need !
These are some compelling questions we must ask of ourselves when it comes to promoting a product with sale-able goods as the end result leading to any commission-able payout for ourselves as affiliate marketers. Yet the biggest question of all has got to be...do YOU trust and believe in what your promoting?
You can 'roll the dice' as many affiliate marketers do by playing the numbers game like so many wannabe marketers online or you can start to think of you and the business you are building for yourself. If you are going to promote a product online then you need to be aware of the background and members of that company your promoting...If you have been solicited and wooed by income claims and you are going to do the same by copycat fashion then your affiliate marketing days may be ended and with a hefty fine to pay for false representation and support of such material. Think about it!
And why would I say such a thing
What in your mind would be the best approach to your marketing online? Wouldnt you think that first and fore-mostly regardless of which platform you advertise on that you would come first before any material you promote. I would! The best form of marketing online is be prepared to build your personal branding, be honest, be responsible, declare and disclaim your association of such promotional product and if you are not prepared to do that well you will be floundering in the online marketing world for many years to come with little or no income and lots of wasted time and expense if you survive at all. The world arena for promotional material online is under scrutiny and continuing effect by many authorities and hence Googles own approach to its survival as a Trusted Internet Provider to many a question or search phrase with its 'Slaps' Panda and Penquin and a multitude of others that see an effort to 'clean-up' the internet from misguided results of a personal search query.
Personal Branding and a trusted list following are crucial more than ever before, Social Media is more prevailant than ever and Trust once again will win the followings you perhaps deserve with your continued deliverance of essential elements to certain peoples needs and wants.
The days of spammy sharing postings and 'come take a look' opportunities are well numbered in 2012 so make your Internet presence real and admirable by many to survive the quick fire fortune method of Internet Affiliate Marketing.
The older so called 'Gurus' are well in the play with these shifting trends for time has certainly escalated very fast as far as modern online marketing methods go! If you can think back to a time like 2005 and how solicitation and dupe was so rife back then when promoting such a simple thing as an E-Book could earn you thousands in revenue and creating a website that would use linking sources to direct them to a landing page completely irrelevant to their needs placed them in front of an unsuspecting buying audience. 2007 saw the beginnings of change yet as fast as modern online usage was becoming more and more accessible to many individuals so where the administrators of such available information with secure relevancy and certified acceptance to such promotional activity of available products online. Its taken time for these authorities to catch up with the play but they are well in front now...don't you think?
