Work At Home Ideas: Affiliate Websites
Affiliate marketing continues to be one of the top ways to work from home. Promoting affiliate websites offers a way to work at home that lets you get started very quickly. However there are a few things you should keep in mind regarding using the affiliate website.
1. Do not promote it directly. What I mean by that is you need to promote something of your own first before sending your website visitors through to the affiliate website.
The top affiliate marketers do various things to sell affiliate products. However none of them promote the affiliate website directly.
2. Building an email list is one of the best ways to sell more products as an affiliate marketer. In this strategy you promote a landing page and capture your prospects name and email address so you can follow up in the future.
As you become more familiar with your subscribers they begin to trust you more. This allows you to promote your affiliate website in the body of the email and get a higher conversion rate.
You can also promote other things in the email such as links to blogs or presell pages to get even more sales.
3. Speaking of blogs this is something you will want to create. This lets you put your personal touch on the affiliate products that you couldn’t do if you are using the replicated affiliate website.
Blogging is a great strategy because you can add banners to your blog posts that link to the product you are writing about. You can also include text links and put them right in the body of the article.
4. Pre-sell web pages are smart because search engines like them and so will your readers. Purchasing the affiliate product is helpful when you’re creating a pre-sell webpage. When you purchase the product you can learn everything about it from a personal point of view.
You can then pass that on to your readers by letting them know all of the good and bad things you found about that specific affiliate product. An honest review will actually help you get even more sales because nobody expects every product to be perfect!
5. Let me just add that if you choose to promote the affiliate sales page directly you really need to increase the traffic to that specific page. Internet marketing is a numbers game when you cannot personally influence the outcome and that is why you will need more traffic taking this approach.
In conclusion let me summarize by saying that affiliate marketing continues to be one of the best work at home ideas there is. Properly using your affiliate websites will help you make a lot of money online when done correctly.
