So you’ve signed up for an affiliate or Multi-level marketing (MLM) program and are now wondering how to make money out of it? While many affiliates make a lot of cash, others die wondering what went wrong with their strategies. Discussed below are a few guidelines that can help you change gears and start earning a decent (if not an extravagant) amount of cash, through MLM and affiliate marketing programs.
1 – Get Your own website
One way by which you can greatly enhance your affiliate earnings is by building a website. In fact, many affiliate programs have a pre-requisite that you should have your own website (e.g. programs that pay per click through banner advertisement). If you don’t know how to build a website there are lots of places from where you can build a professional looking website with the help of simple site builders (e.g. Free Servers). Such website provide ready made templates. All you have to do is to fill an online form, select a few options and add text, images, videos, etc to the website. Other methods of getting a website running can be to ask someone build a site for you.
2 – Write reviews
You can write reviews about products that you are marketing and promote them on your website, in a newsletter, and on other websites (e.g. you can make a YouTube video).
3 – Use a Blog:
You can get a Blog and link back and forth to your website. This will allow you to create discussion forums on the blog about the product and list any queries and updates to your regular website. Active blogs are indexed regularly by search engines and also help the pages that you have linked, to get indexed (e.g. WebPages from your website). You can easily setup a blog on websites like Blogger, Tumbler and Posterous. You can even add your affiliate ads on your blog to increase the chances of making money out of them.
4- Build a Relationship with You Visitors
You can build relationships with your website visitors with your discussion forums, comment section, etc and encourage them to know more about your marketed products. This can increase trust with your potential and actual clients and encourage them to recommend your products to other people.
5 – Place Your Links Signature Lines
Never allow a potential sale to pass you by! If you are a member of a forum, you should have your affiliate or website’s link placed in your signature line. You can do the same for your email signature, as this will result in free advertisement.
6- Use Social Media
You can create a Facebook page, share your affiliate links with friends and family and ask them to pass the on. This will ensure that you are able to spread your links through a wider market segment. Using social media websites can help you get perpetual sales via you affiliate links and you won’t even have to endlessly chase potential customers to do that.
