Affiliate Marketing Practices Revealed

Affiliate marketing practices aren’t a magical formula.

Rather they are techniques that have been perfected and proven over years of dedicated hard work. Face it, affiliate marketing is here to stay.

There are three tactics that have worked before with online marketing and continue to work. These tactics will increase sales, and help you to survive, and thrive doing online affiliate marketing.

Affiliate Marketing Practices Revealed

Affiliate Marketing Practices Revealed

These three tactics are:

1. For each product that you promote you should have a unique web page.

If you lump them all together to save money on web hosting it isn’t worth it because you lose sales by doing so. Have a web page for each specific product and have no other focus for that web page.You should include product reviews on your website so potential customers can understand what the product can do for them if they purchase it. Your website should also include testimonials from customers who have already purchased the product. Make sure that you have permission from these customers to use their testimonials and to use their names and photographs on your webpage.

If you are good at writing or want to be good at writing articles to highlight the ways that your product can be used then it is advised to include them as an additional page on your product website. Such pages must be attractive and get the reader to take action. The headline should get the reader to read more and to contact you. Highlight special points on the page where they may mention the product. If you do so your readers will more easily understand what the page is about and will want to find out more about the product described there.

2. Offer free reports to your readers.

You should in order that they aren’t missed to position them at very top side of your web-page. Create autoresponder messages to email to those who enter their information into your subscription form. It has been shown through research that sales are usually closed upon the seventh contact with a prospect.

Only two things happen with a web page. Either the prospect leaves the web page and never returns or a sale is closed. If you send them useful information by email at certain intervals it will remind them of the product. This may ensure that they go back and make the final purchase and that the sale is closed. The content of the email is directed specifically toward reasons as to why the prospect should buy the product. At the same time the content should not sound like a sales pitch.

Readers will be compelled to action if you can show how your product can make life easier and more enjoyable. Subject lines in your emails that compel readerrs to take action are suggested. As much as possible avoid using the word “free”. Older spam filters like to put that type of content into the spam folder before the reader can even see the email. Affiliate marketing is all about convincing those who signed up for your free reports that they are losing out if if they do not use your products or services.

3. Target the kind of traffic that you want to get for your product.

If visitors to your website have no interest in what you are offering they will leave and never come back to your site. Targeting the kind of traffic that you want should include writing articles for publications such as ezines or creating e-reports, or even e-books. After you do this locate publications that are looking to focus on your target customers. Hopefully, what you have created for them might just grab their interest. Write a minimum of 2 articles every week. Make sure they contacin about 300 to 600 words. Writing and maintaining articles on a continuous basis can generated as many as 100 targeted readers per day to your site.

You will be doing well if only 1 out of every 100 people buy your product or services. If you generate 1,000 targeted hits for your website each and every day statistics have shown that you can make 10 sales per day.

These strategies aren’t difficult, however, some time and action each and every day is required on your part. They are helpful to use with any affiliate marketing program. By using them you can earn an excellent source of income and survive and even more importantly thrive in business.

Social Media and Marketing Crafts

Social Media and Marketing Crafts

Do you produce crafts? If so it may be true that you want to sell them and in such a fashion as to make doing so a business.

One of the greatest platforms for marketing such craft based businesses is through social media. Social media can get your business to be recognized and to take in more money. You need to figure out what your goals are for your business before deciding which social media platform will best fit the marketing of your crafts. After that you must decide on what strategies will best fit the goals that you have set.

Here is a list of just a few of the benefits that social media can provide to your craft business.

* Selling products directly to your customers.

* More people will be aware of your business which of course will make you more money.

* You can build relationships with people, develop new customers and ensure that your customers return.

* Develop the possibility of finding business partners.

* You can become established as an expert in your trade.

* Social media activity leads to improvement of your business’s website through more visits and customer feedback.

In order to know which social media platform is best for promoting your business or how to use a specific social media platform for doing so you must have a lear idea of where you want your business to go. Some of the more well-known social media sites that can help with the publicizing of your business are as follows:

1. Facebook

Facebook is easy to use and it is a quick and sometimes free way for you to gain new customers. By inviting your friends to like your business’s Facebook page you can get new visitors and you can grow your page by posting imgages, descriptions and links about the crafts that you offer.

Your followers will like and share those posts. This allows more and more people see the type of business you own and the products that you have to offer. The “liking” and “sharing” feature on Facebook, allows this social media platform to be a great way to grow your business.

2. Twitter

Twitter is very popular among crafters because of all the connections it offers, especially to possible partnerships. You can also interact with your customers and get to know them on a more personal level.

Twitter, though, has one disadvantage which is that you have to constantly keep tweeting. This is because you’re really only as good as your last tweet. Make sure that you aren’t promoting only yourself. Take the time to retweet others and reply to other people’s tweets.

3. Pinterest

Pinterest is great for directing people to other sites as this is what it was developed for. If you want more website traffic, this may be the way to go. If you have great pictures to share with others, Pinterest should be under top consideration for the social media site to use the most to promote your business. Use this to send your followers to your product’s sales pages. Even if you posted a pin to Pinterest months ago, you’ll still get traffic on your website months later.

4. YouTube

Ever consider video as a way to sell your crafts? You could even consider making a video of you creating a specific craft item that you want to sell. The trick here is to develop a good amount of subscribers to your YouTube channel. By doing so your business will gain popularity. You may not think of this platform as being social but if you develop a good amount of subscribers, your business will gain popularity. However, remember that it takes time to produce a high quality video, so ensure to leave enough time to do this.

5. LinkedIn

Although there are several social media sites in existence as of today the last one which I will mention is LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a great tool for networking with other business owners. You could end up getting a partnership out of it. You don’t get to become connected to your customers, so it is less helpful than the others for marketing your craft business.

Knowing the differences between these social media sites and how they can help you and your business is important for saving time and money as well as making money with selling your crafts. It is important to become educated on what separate social media sites have to offer and to use the tools provided to make your business easier to run.

The Importance of Website Analysis

The analysis of your website traffic statistics is both important and invaluable. Indeed, it cannot be stressed enough for a number of different reasons. Before you can make full use of these statistics, you need to know how to interpret the data.

Most web hosting companies will provide you with basic web traffic information, however, you then will still have to interpret the data in able to make use of it. The data that you receive from your host company can be overwhelming especially if you don’t know how to use it as far as your business or your website. You should start by examining your most basic data – the average visitors to your site on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

These figures are the most accurate measure of your website’s activity. It would appear on the that the more traffic you see recorded, the better you can assume your website is doing, however this is an not the case. You must examine the behavior of your visitors once they come to your website in order to gauge how effective your site and it’s traffic actually is.

A great misconception often occurs about what are commonly known as “hits” and what is actually quality, effective traffic to your website. Hits are simply the number of information requests that are received by the server. A hit can simply equate to the number of graphics per page. With this information you will get an idea of how overblown the concept of hits can be. As an example of this, if your homepage has 15 graphics on it, then the server records 15 hits, when really it is only referring to a single visitor visiitng a single page on your site. As you can guess these hits are not useful as to the analysis of your website traffic.

When you get more visitors to come to your website, the more your interpretation will become accurate. This increased flow of website traffic will make your analysis of overall trends in visitor behavior more precise. With a lesser number of visitors, your analysis can be quite distorted.

Your goal should be to use these web traffic statistics to figure out how your site is working for your visitors. One way that can help you to determine this is to find out how long your visitors on an average spend on your website. If the time that they spend is relatively brief, this usually indicates a problem. The challenge is then to figure out what that problem is.

One potential problem could be that your keywords are directing the wrong type of visitors to your website Another problem could be that your graphics are intimidating or confusing, therefore causing the visitor to leave your site quickly. You should Use the knowledge of how much time visitors are spending on your website to determine specific problem. After you fix these problems continue to use this time that they spend on your site as as a meter of the effectiveness of your fix.

Website traffic stats can help you determine both effective and ineffective areas of your website. If you have a page that you believe is important, but visitors are leaving quickly, that page needs attention. You could consider improving the link to this page by make the link more noticeable and enticing, or you could improve the look of the page or the ease that your visitors can access the necessary information on that page.

If you notice that visitors are spending a lot of time on pages that you believe are less important, then you might consider moving your sales copy and marketing focus to that particular page.

Website statistics will reveal vital information about how effective individual pages, and visitor habits and motivation are. This information is essential to having a successful Internet marketing campaign.

Does your website have exit pages, such as a final order or contact form? This is a type of page that you can expect your visitor to exit rapidly. Not every visitor to your site is going to find exactly what they are looking for, and therefore statistics may show you a number of different exit pages. Unless you notice an exit trend on a certan page that is not intended to be an exit page, I would say that you shouldn’t worry too much. In the case that a significant number of visitors are exiting your website on a page not designed for that purpose, you must closely examine that page to ascertain what the problem is. Once you find the potential weaknesses of that page, small changes in content or graphics might have a significant impact on keeping visitors moving through your site rather than exiting the wrong page.

After you have analyzed your website visitor statistics, then it’s time to focus on your keywords and phrases. Are your particular keywords directing a specific type of visitor to your website? If a visitor finds what they are looking for on your site, and even better complete your order form or make a purchase then visitor – meaning that they find what they are looking for on your site, and even – the more valuable that keyword is.

If a large number of visitors are being directed – or rather misdirected – to your site by a particular keyword or phrase, that keyword demands adjustment. Keywords are vital to bringing quality visits to your site to do business with you. Close analysis of the keywords your visitors are using to find your site gives you an important understanding concerning your visitor’s needs and their motivations.

In conclusion, if you notice that your users are finding your website by typing in your company name, then it’s time to celebrate. This means that you have achieved a significant level of brand recognition, a sure sign of success.

10 Reasons to submit to article directories

Article marketing is still a great way of getting recognition on the Internet. Indeed my own name is found several times in Google and a great deal of this was due to submitting articles to article directories. I have yet to optimize this method of marketing but will do more so this year.

Here are ten great reasons you should write and submit articles to article directories:

1. Publicity – People will know that you write and may even seek out your expertise on the subject that you write about. This is of course tied into credibility.

2. Credibility – You will be seen as an expert in your field if your articles are mainly about a certain field, make sense, and contain timely and relevant information. As an article writer you may get special treatment by these new article directory owners and get them to create a category just for your expertise.

3. Branding – You will brand yourself and your website so that people looking for information on a certain topic can easily find it on a publicized article directory. If you have several articles you can quickly become a top author at the new article sites.

Article marketing is here to stay

Here is an article I wrote a few years back about article marketing.

Putting A New Face On Article Writing And Article Marketing

At one time article marketing was limited to Internet marketers writing articles for the sole purpose of promoting their websites. If a marketer had a website about dog products that marketer would write articles about dogs and various things about dogs, and submit them to the “pets” category of article directories. If the marketer wanted to promote a site about making money online, he or she would write articles about making money online and submit it to the appropriate category in article directories. If the marketer had a website about “widgets” he would write articles about “widgets” and submit them to the directories. Writing articles for these types of article directories is writing done almost solely for the sake of publicity. People will know that you write about a certain subject because you have knowledge about that subject and may even seek out your expertise on the subject that you write about.

There is a new trend to article marketing today. It still takes into account getting traffic to a website but also more it is for the purpose of the article writer getting paid. In some cases the articles that a writer develops for these sites are not necessarily related to the niche of the writer’s websites. It is important when submitting to the directories that you establish a sense of credibility. The more credible that your article seems the more articles may get accepted.

Search Engine Marketing With Blogs

Here is a synopsis of an article that I published at EzineArticles.com in 2007. The advice still applies today.

If you are involved in any type of affiliate program or online network marketing program then you should really be using a blog or several blogs to help you to market your opportunity and products. There are several reasons for using blogs for marketing and in this article these reasons are explained.

Stripped down a blog is nothing more than a website. However, what is it about blogs that make them a perfect tool for making money online?

A large part of this is that a blog offers an easy to use content management system that allows for quick updating in chronological order.

Tracking your advertising is important

You should always track your advertising methods. By doing this you will know which advertising methods are working and which ones aren’t. This will save you money and time. You should contact your upline to see what tracking methods work best for them. You can also with SFI opt for the Hit Tracking system by simply adding a keycode in your SFI or TripleClicks URL.

Some affiliates have enough knowledge about marketing that they are able to use all of the online and even offline marketing methods that are available while others may need quite a bit of training or at least a guiding hand. Some affiliates are better at working the telephone and some affiliates are better at working the post office. All of these methods are good. It is important to help your downline affiliates find a way to promote his or her business in a way that is most comfortable to them.

Communication with your downline is important

In network marketing you should make sure that you communicate with your downline as well as your upline. You need to give your downline support and try to answer questions they may have. If your sponsor seems invisible don’t let that hinder your growth and success. You need to be the best sponsor that you can be to effectively help your affiliates.
