to Have More Success With Affiliate Programs
a lot of webmasters affiliate programs are the largest
income generated by their website. Advertising revenue
isn't always very high as only few webmasters generate
thousands of pageviews a day.
programs are a wonderful way to earn money as long as
you keep some things in mind. Let me tell you the things
I have learned the hard way using affiliate programs.
your site had been designed and you want to start using
affiliate programs you probably wondered where to start.
Presuming you know the principles of affiliate marketing
, you still will be confronted with a lot of questions.
Target is the keyword.
very common remark that I hear from visitors is they
don't know which programs they have to put on their
site in order to make good revenue.
Know that the choice of your affiliate programs is the
most important aspect of your affiliate marketing strategy.
I sometimes see sites where the webmasters have put
advertisements on their pages that I'm really not interested
in. Lately I met a webtools site that promoted Italian
clothes. It's useless to put ads on your site that people
aren't interested in.
don't know what their interests are you say ? It's simple
!! They visit your site so they are interested in what
your site has to offer. Remember this and exploit it
! Add offers to your site that are related to the content
of your site. You will get a much better response than
with non-targetted ads. continuing the example of the
webtools site it would be much better to put an ad for
a webhost than the clothing ad. Our site has a search-engine
that lists over 1000 merchants. Just insert a key-word
and you will find the most relevant merchant programs.
Get people to click.
you have chosen relevant affiliate programs you need
to get as much people as possible to click the ad. It's
important that people want to click the ad so don't
start using popups or other forced clicks.
are some tips I can give you to get more click-troughs
Notice that text-links have a much higher click-trough
ratio than advertising banners. Nowadays most surfers
now that you are paid if they click on it and this will
prevent them to click it sometimes. Text-links give
the impression that these links are good additions to
your site and you don't have any profit from it.
Don't be afraid to use more affiliate programs on one
page, especially when you use text links. Stuff your
page with interesting links and mix it with as much
paid links as possible. Remember to put your paid links
on top of your page so people will more likely be confronted
Market your affiliate program ! Make sure that you convince
your visitors that the respective service or shop is
really a must for them. Be honest and tell it as if
you were talking to a good friend
If the affiliate program that you promote offers the
possibilty to insert dynamic content, use that ! Statistics
have proven that affiliate programs score much better
if you can interact with it on the site you're at.
The don'ts of affiliate marketing
forget that you want your site to be reputable. That's
why I can strongly advise you not to use following techniques
to get more money.
* Don't promote services that you don't want to be assiociated
with. Some affiliate programs can be very questionable.
Remember that your site will be associated with the
links they provide. Make sure you use quality programs.

that are reliable and are good to make you money.
Don't promote offers that are equal to your service
or content of your site : Find as many complementary
services to your site and add these merchant programs.
Don't ever spam a service. This can give you a lot of
legal trouble as you are promoting a third party. Aso
you have to recall that your reputation on the internet
will be ruined.
