How To Maximize Your Affiliate Income
Everyone who wants to make money online needs to know the secrets to promoting products and earning affiliate commissions. Here are seven ways to boost your affiliate income:
Pay Per Click ads - Everyone obsesses about AdSense, but overlooks much cheaper sources of PPC traffic. GoClick, SearchFeed, 7Search, LookSmart price clicks starting at $0.01 per click. On Miva, Mamma, and Lycos/Ask, you can get clicks for $0.05 on popular terms costing ten times that much on AdSense. The volume isn't as large, but the cost is much lower, so your ROI is way better..
Forum posts - Use affiliate links in your forum posts and signature file. Be creative with how you describe the offer. Remember that fear of loss is a stronger motivator than saving or making money, so include that message loud and clear. Example: "Don't miss out on the hottest SEO tool ever because it's going to be pulled off the market to protect your investment from overuse of it's killer underground techniques."
Membership sites - Promoting membership sites is a great way to tap into recurring commissions from monthly membership fees. Each sale contains a built-in backend residual commission stream that continues to payout as long as your referral remains a member.
Microniche products - You can make a lot f money promoting products where you don't have a lot of competition. Look for a niche within a niche or microniche that you can dominate easily
List building - Always build a list of future prospects for additional offers by capturing name and email addresses from site visitors. Even if you don't have a full-blown website, set one up to host squeeze pages that serve as name capture devices before redirecting the customer to the product you are promoting.
Joint ventures - Approach product owners with joint venture ideas such as combining products for a sale bundle or special offer.
Videos - Use screen capture video software to create an informative product review and promote it on all the video sharing sites. Use an iframe link on your web page to automatically add the affiliate cookie for the product to each visitors computer.
OK, I'll admit the last one is a little sneaky, so here's a bonus tip. Use a product called Affiliate Video Brander to take product videos created by the product owner and turn them into affiliate videos. Your site visitor watches a video and then gets redirected to the product sales page upon completion of the video. And of course, to capture those with attention spans too short to watch a whole video, it includes affiliate links to the product above and below the video box.
