What does it really take to become a successful Affiliate Marketer? What are the key ingredients of an affiliate marketing success story? Are there really any shortcuts to Affiliate Marketing glory? These and many other questions play on the minds of affiliate marketers who have a real desire to make it big and become successful in this business.

Although affiliate marketing is widely regarded by many as one of the easiest and most effective ways to earn money online, it is not, unfortunately, as easy as it sounds. The wise affiliate marketer plans every action and executes it in the best way he or she can. They should also maximize the earning potential by finding and utilising the right tools necessary for a successful Affiliate Marketing business. with this in mind I would like to discuss what I believe are the three key tools for a successful affiliate marketing business.

Important Tool #1: Your Own Website

Without doubt the most vital and indispensable tool in Affiliate Marketing is your own website. The first step on your affiliate marketing journey is building a credible and professional looking website with unique and interesting content. Your website is the jump off point for all of your marketing efforts. Therefore, you must first build a compelling and user-friendly website, which will appeal to your target audience and encourage and give them the confidence to click on the links to the products and services you are reviewing or promoting and ultimately go on to make a purchase. Therefore, it stands to reason that your first and most important efforts must be to concentrate on building a website that will cater to what your target audience need.

One key point to note is that a significant proportion of web users actually go online to research and look for information rather than actually going online to buy anything so as mentioned above it is vital that your website is built out using unique, relevant and useful content rather than copying what other people are doing. By writing original content you have a much better chance of building credibility with people and it will also boost your rankings within the search engines. Establishing a good reputation is imperative in building up a loyal consumer base.

Important Tool #2: Offering Incentives

I think it goes without saying that competition is extremely fierce in the internet world. Ensuring you stay one step ahead of your competition will give you a head start in capturing a significant market share. You must therefore use every means available to you to encourage people to not only visit your website but to also go on and purchase something from your site. As soon as you can you start building an opt-in email list through the use of incentives such as free reports, downloads or even money off vouchers. By building this list you then have the opportunity to develop a relationship with your subscribers and can over time drive more revenue from them.

Important Tool #3: Driving Link Popularity

Highly targeted traffic to your website, is I am sure you would agree key in building your affiliate marketing business. You should therefore do everything you can to drive traffic through the search engines and building links is one of the ways your site will have a better position within the search engines - link popularity is just one of the factors that search engines use to determine search engine rankings 0 therefore you must continually be building back links to your website.

One of the oldest, but still effective, ways of doing this is by writing articles and submitting them to article directories and feeder sites. Not only do these articles gain exposure and possibly some traffic but they will also build back links to your website. The more back links then the greater your link popularity will be. Again as with content for your website you must ensure that these articles are unique, relevant and also of interest to your target audience.

These are just three of the many tools that an affiliate marketer can have in their marketing tool box to drive and maximise their earning potential. Please bear in mind that the possibilities are endless and only limited by your imagination. Just be creative and think outside the box and bear in mind that success will only come from applying a consistent approach to your affiliate marketing business. Test, test and test again and just keep going - that way you give yourself a fighting chance of becoming a high rolling affiliate marketer.
