Should You Use Affiliate Marketing?

Is Affiliate Marketing Something You Should be Using?

First off, in case you are wondering, what is Affiliate Marketing?


Affiliate Marketing is offering someone else’s product for sale on your site. For example: you find a good information product which you fill is be helpful for your readers, so you offer it on your site for your readers to buy. You first sign up as an affiliate for the company which created the product. When you sell one of the products, you receive a percentage of the purchase price because were the one which actually helped make the sell.

Monetize Your Marketing

One big benefits to using affiliate marketing is that it allows you to be bringing in revenue early on in your Internet Marketing adventure even if you don’t have any products of your own. In other words it gives you a way to monetize your site from the start.

Most people just do not have the money to continue marketing their main MLM or other company long enough to begin to see good profits. They run out of money before they see a profit large enough to support them. This is one reason so many network marketing businesses fail.

By having affiliate products to offer onĀ  your site you monetize your internet marketing business so you can afford to continue to grow your business.

Makes your Main Product a Back-End Product.

Most Internet Marketers have a main product that they want to sell, such as a product from their MLM or Network Marketing company. The problem with such products is that they are hard to sell. Most people are not looking for another vitamin or another MLM company. They’ve already seen plenty.

Most people are looking for the solution of HOW to market online. When you provide good content on your site and then provide good affiliate products, you build trust with your visitors. Then your followers will tend to want to know what your main product is and feel inclined to check it out and possibly join your company. This way your MLM or network company becomes a back-end product, like it should be.

Make Your Own Affiliate Product – Eventually

Eventually, when you grow you business and grow your understanding of marketing, you can go on to produce your own products. Once you have your own products, such as eBooks or Training Lessons, you will be retaining all the profit from each sale. You can see how this can boost your profits.This may seem out of your reach, but don’t be discouraged, and don’t worry that you need to be able to product a product right away. In time it will make since to produce your own products. Just keep at it!

Now consider having your own products and offering them to other internet marketers to offer on their sites or to their email lists. Consider if you arrange with another internet marketer for them to offer your product to their list of 10,000 subscribers. And consider that your product sells for $99 and you’ll keep $50 of the profit. If only 5% buy your product, that’s 500 people. If you receive $50 per sale times 500…. That’s $25,000. Do you see the potential. Again, don’t think this is out or your reach in time.

Affiliate Marketing is a Great Tool

So many companies have moved to having affiliate programs. Even department stores such as Walmart or Target have affiliate programs. So even if your site is set up to promote physical products such as coffee pots, you can set up affiliate programs with the companies that sell coffee products and use your affiliate links when showing the coffee pots on your sites. They are simple to use.

So consider using Affiliate Marketing in your Internet Marketing Business. It can be a great way to make a profit all along and help sustain your profits before you see the profits you want from your main company product.

Here’s to your Affiliate Marketing Success!

5 Steps to Blogging Successfully

Building an Internet Marketing Business can seem a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. Blogging is one method most people can use successfully by following a few simple steps as you build your Online Business. Below are 5 useful Steps to Building a Successful Blogging Business.

1. Know your Prospects.

Who are you audience? Who would want to read your blog. If you’re writing about building a business, for example, your audience would probably be people who don’t know much about having an online business and need some pointers and advice. You can be the one providing that help.
Remember also, that your job as a Marketing Professional is to Provide Solutions! What you are selling is not your products or services, in one since. You are actually selling solutions to someones problems. You are building your blog to provide solutions to those looking for help. You need to know who your audience is and then provide the solutions they are looking for.

2. Create Your Blog.

The next step is to set up and maintain your blog. Setting it up may seem like a scary thought, but there are actually a lot of sources of help available. Check out the link at the bottom of this article for a great source I recommend.
Once the blog is set up, then create content. That is, write blogs! As I mentioned in other posts, you don’t have to be an expert or a great writer. The key is to write consistently. Perhaps write a short blog every day, or a couple of times a week. Write regularly and write about issues relevant to your blog’s topic. Write things that will be helpful to your readers.
Have a Free give-away for your readers. People love to get Free stuff and when you can give them something helpful and relevant then they will gladly give you their email. Once you have their email, you can then offer them other things that will also help them. Never spam your visitors; yet offer helpful products they may want. Give them good value and they will welcome your offers.

3. Create Useful Content.

You may ask, where will I get things to write about. If you picked a topic for your blog that interests you, then surely you’ve looked at other information on that topic. Perhaps you have books on your shelfs now. Or check out books from the library. Or find information on the internet; webinars, ebooks, articles. There are lots of sources for information. As you learn and write, you’ll also become more knowledgeable on the topic and can more readily help others. You slowly become the expert. And people look to those more knowledgeable for helpful advice.

4. Bring Traffic to Your Blog.

You need visitors to your blog to be successful, and the more your write, the more visitors will come. You can also use other methods to encourage more traffic to your blog. You can link to social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. There are means to automate this for you. You can use backlinks and bookmarks. Use SEO; Search Engine Optimization.
Don’t worry if you don’t know what these things are. There is training on this as well and you don’t need to learn all of it right away. Just getting started and using the methods that interest you will get you going and as you grow your Online Business, you can add more. And you don’t have to learn any of it. You can get others to do the technical part if you want.

5. Use a Proven System

To truly be successful in Blogging, you need the support of a proven system. You need a proven system that provides training and support from those who have already succeeded in Internet Marketing and want to share their success tips with you.

Work with a coach and a system that has shown you that they know the business.

Here’s to your Great Success!
