Affiliate Marketing Information

Further to my article on Social Media jobs I did leave out one important type of niche that is gradually gathering steam and that is affiliate marketing.

Companies spend thousand of dollars to advertise their products to the public. Some advertisements get attention, some just are a flop and money goes down the drain. Companies are looking for markets to show case their products and also for means to do this within budget constraints, and this is where affiliate marketing comes in.

So what is affiliate marketing?

To put it simply the company contracts you to publish and market their product and for your effort in getting a sale you get paid. Your payment or commission is a percentage of the sale price.

There are 4 parties to this program, the company that has the product, you the affiliate or publisher of the product, the company that takes the payment and the customer who buys the product.

This type of marketing is sales driven. It does not matter how many people visit your site or blog it all depends on the rate of conversion that is the amount of people who will buy the product or service.

Affiliate market is lucrative for people looking at this niche business. These are the few essentials you need to be successful in this market.

Finding a product you know, researched and believe in

The product should be of good quality as you do want any charge backs.

Customers or traffic to your website or blog

Have a good sales pitch or catch phrase for the product

Build some excitement around the product

Ability to get people to read about the product have a list of followers

Turn visits to your site into sales

We can add a few other requirements to these eight that I have listed, however I have listed what I think are the most important ones that you need to focus on.

Writing a flowery article, is good but if it does not get the attention of the reader it will be of no use. An article that gets the reader interested will be what you should aim for.

The most important thing is to get the person who reads your article to a believer in the product or service. If they believe in the concept of what you are trying to sell and they buy the product then you have achieved your goal.

Promoting other peoples product or affiliate marketing is a very good source of making a good living. Finding the right product that is in your niche interest may be an arduous task as it may take patience,research and time, however it is well worth it.

Always remember, state the facts do not false advertise and do not try to be too pushy as people back away from these tactics. Stay true to the fundamentals and you will achieve what you set out to do, and that is making a good living as an affiliate marketer.
