Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Mobile affiliate platforms are something small business owners should consider looking into to add extra money to their bottom line. It never hurts to have another source of money coming in. You never know what could happen. You could get sick and wind up in the hospital. Your whole industry could have a major down turn and your clients all stop their projects at one time (think about what happened when the real estate industry went belly up). Mobile affiliate marketing is not as hard as it seems. Mobile affiliate platforms make it easy for you to market goods and services to people with mobile phones. The rest of this article will help you to understand what mobile affiliate platforms are and how they can help you earn extra money.

Mobile affiliate platforms allow you to choose offers from a host of different merchants. There are books, music downloads, apps, you name it, there is probably a merchant trying to sell it to people with mobile phones. Some mobile affiliate platforms also have products that you can promote to computer users so even if you aren't getting that much mobile traffic, yet you can still profit from using mobile affiliate platforms. You don't even have to worry about hosting the images on your web server. Most of these programs host the creatives for you. You just have to place the special html code on your website.

Mobile offers are more likely to be viewed. As you may already know, deliverability of email messages are low. People on social media sites are starting to tune out marketing messages. People very rarely watch the commercials on television. Podcasts and satellite radio provide people with music without commercials. However, people seemed to be glued to their cell phones. It seems like people will drop whatever they are doing to read a text message or answer a cell phone call. You can take advantage of this by sending targeted mobile messages. Make sure you get permission and give people and easy way to opt out. Some people have to pay per text message and will get very irritated if they keep getting messages that they don't want.

Mobile affiliate platforms definitely make it easy for you to promote mobile offers to your website visitors. Once you define your niche market, all you have to do is select offers that you think your niche market will want to check out. What is the hard part? Picking which offer to promote. There are literally hundreds if not thousands of mobile offers to pick from. You could easily spend hours looking through the various offers that are available. Don't do that. Pick a few offers to focus on. Test some advertising methods (be sure you pick one that the merchant allows) and see which ones work better for you. With a lot of work and patience, you will start to see some rewards for all of your hard work. Now get out there and start picking some mobile affiliate platforms to work with.
