Affiliate Marketing Means
by David McKenzie
As an affiliate in an affiliate program you need to be good at
affiliate marketing. One of the most important aspects of affiliate
marketing is email-marketing.
Get it right and you will be a successful affiliate. Get it wrong
and you will be just another affiliate statistic. (It is estimated
that between 80% and 90% of affiliates make little or no money from
affiliate programs) What email-marketing methods work best to be
a successful affiliate?
Here are 3 methods that consistently produce the best results for
1. Developing a Newsletter
You MUST have a personal newsletter that goes out on a regular
basis. Just because you're an affiliate doesn't mean you should
not have a newsletter.
A newsletter with valuable information lets you build an email
list. Then you can market your affiliate programs through articles
and ezine ads in your own newsletter. I personally have experienced
some excellent results by promoting affiliate programs I belong
to in ezine ads.
I know I personally have clicked on thousands of ezine ads in newsletters!
2. Set up an Email Course
A great way to build an email list is to run a free email course.
You package some of your content into an email course running over
perhaps a few weeks and offer it for free to subscribers.
What you can do is have links at the bottom of each email promoting
a different affiliate program.
For example, if you offered a 5-part email course you could promote
5 different affiliate programs in each email. In each email would
be a link to a different affiliate program. Each link would have
your unique affiliate code.
3. Offer an Ebook Download
Another great way to build an email-marketing list as an affiliate
is to offer a free ebook download. You can offer the download via
autoresponder so that an email goes out to each subscriber giving
them the download page.
In that email you could promote a few of your affiliate programs.
You can also promote affiliate programs by having links throughout
the ebook. However be careful not to just provide an ebook full
of links - you want to provide quality information first and the
affiliate program links second.
Email-marketing is an essential tool for the successful affiliate.
Use it properly and you will see some fantastic results!
