Affiliate Marketing Points For More Profitable Commissions

Affiliate marketing can be tough, and it’s probably true that close to 100% of them either earn very few dollars with the rest earning nothing. If there’s is a universal problem among affiliate marketers, if not all, it has to do with a lack of action taking and just getting things done every day, consistently. So in that light we want to share a couple of solid affiliate marketing points that will help you get off to a good start.

If you want to get bigger commissions from affiliate sales, then here’s a tip that does not involve the niche you’re in or the product you’re marketing. It all comes down to the level of honest you inject or present as you promote your various affiliate products. Anytime you make a successful sale, one thing that is being demonstrated is the amount of trust that customer put in you. Therefore, you really should just openly discuss the good and bad points of any product or service you’re writing about. Also, if you have assessed a product and feel that it won’t live up to the sales promises, obviously the right approach is to avoid marketing it. You never want to do anything that can spoil a good business reputation online. It’s not hard at all to be upfront about a product; if it’s good – it’s good, and if it sucks – then say so. You can look at the positive points, explain them, and then tell them what those points will mean to the end-user. For the cons of a product, say upfront what they are and why you believe the way you do about them. Avoid being afraid to discuss the negatives because you want to try to help the other person about the product. If you stick with this plan, then you will develop a strong and positive reputation which will help your business. You’ll develop a reputation for being honest, and that is priceless online.

Choosing a domain name for your affiliate promotions can be a confusing process if you don’t know what you’re doing. Think in terms of the product you’re promoting plus the primary keyword for your website. If at all possible, always avoid the free hosts in which you’ll have some subdomain name. Regardless of how you’re marketing, you’ll want to have a domain with the primary phrase in it for best results.

Try to get some real testimonials from customers as soon as possible because they are powerful. The point to remember about testimonials is they are strong social proof for whatever you’re selling. Ok, the sales letter for the product you’re marketing should have them, they better have them, and you can also solicit them from people you know who may have used the product, etc. Make a video using the testimonial pictures and the actual text, and then you can put that on your site and Youtube as well. Instead of just posting plain text testimonials you can use audio/video testimonials that you can record from the experts or even the customers. Video will make your site more attention grabbing and interesting, and that will only help your cause, too. Nothing really about affiliate marketing is hard, but it can seem that way depending on your view of it. Most of your competition will give-up and walk away, and that’s why you should not do what they do.
