Factors You Must Consider To Make Massive Affiliate Commissions
5 Critical Factors You Must Consider To Make Massive Affiliate
How would you like to 'print' money on demand anytime you want?
This is the reality for the thousands who have stumbled upon affiliate
marketing. The beauty of affiliate marketing resides in its ability
for anyone to make incredible profits without much work, and in
as little as 2 weeks.
What does this mean? This means you can literally start from scratch
and make quick money online, without first having to create your
own products, website, or writing a single ad copy.
In fact affiliate marketing is the most ideal starting point for
the new marketers to 'get their feet wet'. It allows them the use
other people's time, effort and resources for their own gain while
they are further educating themselves for future successes.
This is why I call affiliate marketing the ultimate "Earn
as you learn" strategy.
Now as powerful as affiliate marketing is, there are certain critical
factors you need to first consider, before jumping in onto any affiliate
As not doing so can cost you dearly in lost profits and wasted
=> Critical Factor #1: Determining Your Target Audience
To rake in the big affiliate checks, you must first be able to
identify and target your audience.
This is a simple case of giving people what they want but then,
many affiliates commit the mistake of offering the wrong product
to the wrong crowd.
For example, how many sales do you think you'll make if you promoted
copywriting products to an audience interested only in networking
opportunities? Not many, if any.
Pinpoint your audience to maximize your commissions.
=> Critical Factor #2: Accessing The Quality Of The
A second mistake many affiliates blunder on is in marketing a product
that does not deliver on its promises.
It is always advisable to test the product first before recommending
it. Not only will this increase your credibility and sales, it helps
you promote better as you can then provide personal testimonials
on the product.
=> Critical Factor #3: Existence Of A Sales Letter That
Study the affiliate owner's website and sales copy before even
sending any traffic over. Enquire about its conversion rates and
A good test is to ask yourself if you would buy the product.
It will be a terrible waste of resources if you would to pay for
advertising to a merchant's site, only to discover he or she has
poor sales copy which does not sell. Think about it.
=> Critical Factor #4: Availability Of Promotional Materials
Most affiliate programs will provide their affiliates with tools
to market with. Simply put, the more tools provided, the more chances
of you making the sale.
This is because you can then save time by simply editing the provided
materials to your own 'voice' instead of creating an ad from scratch.
You can focus instead on the marketing. Similarly, having more tools
also equate to more opportunities to get the sales message through
=> Critical Factor #5: Profitability Of Your Promotion
The final factor you must pay attention to is how much you will
be paid, in relation to your promotional efforts. A higher commission
percentage can be a huge motivation to place higher focus on a particular
product in your total portfolio.
Alternatively seek out products with a higher end pricing or those
that offer residual income. You would want to profit exponentially
from any effort placed.
The above are just the tip of the iceberg in the entire affiliate
If you desire to become a power affiliate and bank in huge checks
consistently from affiliate programs, you must further educate yourself
with the knowledge required for perpetual affiliate success!
