So many people struggle in the affiliate marketing industry. It’s so hard to compete with the gurus because every time a new product is launched, they entice their list by offering thousands of dollars worth of bonuses. How do you possibly compete with that! It seems that making it to the guru status yourself is just impossible. Well here are 3 secrets the gurus aren’t sharing:
1. If you are fairly new to affiliate marketing then I would make a safe bet that you don’t have your own product.
Hire a programmer to create some software for you and promote that as your own. You can outsource the work at a reasonable cost.
The more bonuses you offer, the better off you will be. Having them perceived as being worth more than the actual cost of the product you are promoting is what will entice sales.
2. Don’t promote every single product that is launched.
Most people believe that the more they promote, the more money they will make. Well the way you make this money is by promoting products to your list. If you continue to do nothing but promote new product after product to your list, they will get fed up and either delete the email or unsubscribe altogether.
The whole purpose of your list is to add value and high quality information to them without promoting every single thing known to man. Remember, put yourself in their shoes and just think how you would feel.
3. Stay away from promoting hyped up products.
You know the kind, that promise you everything under the sun and then all they do is try to get you on the backend with higher priced items and the products just don’t deliver. If it’s too good to be true, then it probably is. Hype sells and we all fall for it. It takes hard work to make it in this industry so there is no magic pill out there that’s going to do it all for you. Sure, some of these products can further your education but stop buying into everything that is offered online.
So those are the secrets the gurus aren’t sharing with you and how they got to where they are now. It is possible to learn how to do affiliate marketing the right way and start seeing that income finally start coming in. Just don’t let everything totally overwhelm you and don’t rush to promote or buy every product that comes out. You will be way over your head before you know it.
Hope these tips helped. Good luck and remember, it takes time to build a successful business.
