© Copyright By T.H. Quah
It is often published on the web that 95% of all
affiliate marketers do not make any money.
The answer is simple. They are merely hobbyist
indulging in affiliate marketing as a past time.
They are not serious. Although their original plan
is to make money, they have no commitment power.
Is that you?
If you really want to make money in affiliate
marketing, then you need to do what the successful
5% are doing. Just follow their proven path. You
do not need to re-invent the wheel.
Here are 10 proven tips from the super affiliates:
1. Get Serious.
Treat this like any business with the ultimate goal
of making a profit. Write a plan, follow the plan
and stick to your plan. Nothing works if you don't.
2. Prepare Yourself Well
Read as much as you can on the subject. There are
lots of free quality materials that are sufficient
to give you a head start. Then you should buy a
couple of the recommended handbooks or manuals on
more specialized area of affiliate marketing.
'You need to spend some money to make money' as
the saying goes.
3. Built Your Own Opt-in-list or Ezine
That's what the super affiliate has in their arsenal.
You may have read about it many times "the money is
in the list". And it's true! You can earn thousands
of dollars overnight with a responsive targeted
list. It has been proven again and again.
4. Built Mini-Sites
Affiliate marketing focused on preselling. You
don't need big bulky website with 100's of pages.
Just mini-sites! Start with one. Then another and
another. It's like opening your own retail store on
the Internet. Each store producing some sales.
When you have more stores, you'll have more sales
and a bigger total income. A whole book has been
written on how to built mini-sites.
5. Do Your Research
There is really too much garbage on the web. If
you want to succeed, you need to research properly
on what people need. What are the best products
available? Match them together and you're in for
the gold. Take research seriously in all aspects of
your affiliate marketing. It pays!
6. Get Your Own Domain Name
It is important that you have your own domain name
for your sites. It's the professional way on the
net. Your visitors must be made to feel that you're
a serious and in for the long haul. Otherwise,
they'll not bother to read what you have to say.
7. Focus on Themes
Do not make market too many different products on
your site. Work on 'theme' site with products
focused on that theme. For example, if your theme
is 'Dogs', then you can have dog food, dog toys,
dog kennels, dog books, dog diets, etc.
8. Invest Your Time
Or invest your money. Or invest both! Affiliate
marketing is not a get-quick-rich scheme. You need
to work on it for a period of time before seeing any
results. It could be quicker if you invest some
money for advertising or purchase new tools.
9. Keep Your Finger On the Pulse
Affiliate marketing is evolving all the time. There
are new rules, new products, new tools. Things
changes. What worked last year may not work now.
You must keep yourself up to date. Read niche ezine
on affiliate marketing, read articles and participate
on the specific forums. Stay connected!
10. Promote! Promote! Promote!
Finally, it's all about promotion. Do it daily,
weekly or as often as you wish. But just do it
consistently. There is no magic formula for success
accept hard work. Promote, promote, promote and
the sales will come.
Affiliate marketing is not for everyone and not
everyone is into affiliate marketing. However, if
you have penchant for it and is prepared to follow
a proven path, then you will succeed eventually.
Joining the successful 5 percent is not impossible.
You'll just need to focus your effort with a
consistency of purpose.
