Choosing the wrong affiliate program
Affiliate marketers in their desire to earn as much in the shortest time signs up for affiliate program that seems hot without reviewing the product or service the affiliate program offers.
This is a mistake. We have discussed above that you will need to research the product and understand what it can do for your customers before affiliating your business with it.
Always review the product, look for forums and checkout what consumers have to say about the product. Their experience good or bad will tell you if this is a good product to promote. Will it solve a problem; is it for the niche you have extensive knowledge about? These things are important if you want to become a profitable affiliate marketer.
You may also have to check about your expertise. What products can you affiliate yourself into that you have great interest about. If you are interested with a certain products, it is easy for you to research about it.
Review the manufacturer’s website as well including the headline, the testimonials, and the sales letter.
If you are not sold to the idea of promoting this product, do not affiliate your online business with it.
Joining too many affiliate programs
This works the same way as joining a wrong affiliate program. You may loose concentration if you will need to promote so many affiliate programs. Toggle from one product to another, and with different offerings, you may find it hard to do well in any of the products if you have a scattered focus. You will not be able to promote the product’s full potential.
It is hard to promote too many products at the same time because researching and raving about many different products at the same time may only stress you out.
You may also fail to connect your traffic to the specific product that can answer their problems.
It is not illegal to join may affiliate programs. However, if you consider the number of steps you need to take in promoting a certain product; it may be difficult for you to earn good doing too many things at the same time.
What experts recommend is that you focus your attention in one affiliate program. Promote it well and when you feel that it is doing well, you can already automate it using your autoresponder. This is the time for you to move on and join another affiliate program.
It is important to ensure that you will be successful in promoting the products and services you affiliate your business with. Your earning potential will increase if you are able to market your products well. Ensure that you lead your mailing list to the products that pertain to their niche.
If you want, you can join affiliate programs of related products. Do this to avoid problems of directing the wrong product to the wrong mailing list.
Please look at this example.
You are a pet enthusiast. You can talk for hours about dogs, dog training, dog food, dog grooming and dog health. Then, you may affiliate yourself with dog training e-books. You can send dog-related articles to article directories and you may become good affiliate for the dog-training program.
Next, you may affiliate your business with a product that focuses on how to choose dog food for your puppy. You may also affiliate yourself with dog food manufacturers.
You will never get lost in your marketing effort because you are in related business. They are not competing and you will not have problems sending send the wrong traffic to the products you are promoting.
Here is another example I want you to look into.
You affiliate yourself with baby products such as homemade cribs or strollers. You can rave about this subject because you constructed your own baby’s crib or stroller yourself. At the same time, you are a gaming enthusiast, you love poker and casinos. You have books on how to win betting on sports events and casino games.
You are a businessman and both interests have products you can promote. There you have it; you are affiliated to two different programs.
The traffic you have built through your baby product business will be shocked to be receiving an article or newsletter about poker and casino websites. Or the other way around, you failed to separate your mailing list, you mistakably sent the invitation to a baby starter program to your poker contacts.
This is of course a hypothetical example but I hope you get what I am trying to tell you. Do not promote many different products at the same time and ensure that your mailing list is separated into different niches. You do not want confusion that will loose the trust of your customers.
Focus on one and if you feel you are okay with it and you are ready for another affiliate program, do so with caution. Ensure that your mailing list will welcome your communication about another offer. You might want to start your campaigns by sending a survey to your mailing list. This will help you separate them by their interests and thus, you will be able to send them the offers that fit their interest.
Not buying or experiencing the product you are promoting
Even if you are an expert or have great interest in a certain niche very good for you. You can research about this subject and talk about it for hours. However, the technology when you are in college is different from the technology now that you are already supporting a son in college.
It is always wise to test the product for yourself before you promote it. This way, you will be able to review it well and communicate its benefit to your customers.
If you do not try the product and rely on the manufacturer’s statement, you may loose trust of your customers. You would not like to loose your traffic just because they feel you are deceiving them by talking a product that fails to deliver its promise. You experience in using this product will communicate your ability to tell them if this is the product for them or now. Let me reiterate again, you are marketing to intelligent people and thus your words will communicate your understanding. Failing on this may cause you to loose your customers trust.
If it is too uneconomical for you to buy it, you may need to check for forums where customers of the product or service post comments. Consider this as a last resort. You may also ask the manufacturer for free trial if it is possible.
This is to ensure that you will be able to rave about the product because you know it delivers its promise. Whatever issues it may have, you will be able to turn it around if you know the product is a good product.
It is always hard to be enthusiastic about a product if you do not know what it can do for its user. Enthusiastic marketer always gets the attention of customers.
It is the key to being profitable, being able to enthusiastically communicate to your target market the benefits of your product or the product you promote can give them.
Communicate their benefits and deliver that unique selling proposition. Use the keywords that helps describe the products and the same keywords that people in your niche will use to find such product. Talk well about the product, review it, and ensure that you talk to your customer as intelligent as you would talk to your boss.
If your customer will feel important and you are able to solve their problems with your products, you will get their trust and the customers’ trust goes a long way in the World Wide Web. Be a profitable affiliate, not just a Super Affiliate, but a Super Rich Affiliate.
