Living the kind of life you want can start with a dream but should not remain just a dream forever. There is an amount of effort required in order to succeed as an affiliate or internet marketer just like any other endeavor in life. Online marketing is not a way of escaping the dedication or hard-work usually required to succeed or earn money. Patience is also a tool that comes handy when you are selling online, it takes patience to learn the basics and keep learning. Warren Buffett was quoted saying “You can’t produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant.” and I have found this to be very true. Most great things just take time to build even with consistent efforts.
Affiliate marketing simply means selling products or services for a business while you as the marketer get paid (commissions) for each product you sell or each visitor or customer you bring to the business. Whether you are starting out as a newbie in online marketing or you have been at it for a while, you need to be strategic about it. There is a need to map out a line of action. Affiliate marketing is a wide subject and it is even becoming more wider by the day. Start by doing a research on the products you want to sell. There are tonnes of affiliate programs online today.
Clickbank is the most widely known affiliate program with hundreds of thousands of products to promote. One major reason why I created this post is to present you with the various options in affiliate programs available today for you to join and select products you like to promote. Just to show you a few, I will mention;
Amazon affiliate program as one of the oldest affiliate programs I know. To get the best results from this program, you may need to have your own website. You will also need to drive a considerable amount of traffic to your website in order to make sales. Amazon being a leading and a trusted e-commerce leader with several thousands of successful affiliates already will not hesitate to kick you out of the program if you do not make sales with a specified period of time after you have signed up. My advice is that you must have been getting sufficient traffic to your website or online content before you sign even sign up.
eBay is another e-commerce giant that allows you to become an affiliate.
Just like you would expect, eBay’s affiliate program popularly known as the eBay Partner Network has also seen tremendous success over the years. You need to know your onions to succeed as an affiliate here too. It is important for you to know that as an online marketer, your work revolves around creating valuable content or products/services, you also need to share your content and also keep doing these consistently.
Jvzoo is another place where intending affiliate marketers are always welcome. You can easily sign up and start promoting other peoples products to start earning money. Jvzoo claims to be one of America’s fastest growing companies.
I recently learnt about Warrior forum as a place where you can sell your digital products or earn as an affiliate. It is a forum website and claims to be the #1 Digital Marketing Forum & Marketplace.
CPA lead makes it even juicier to be an affiliate. You can sign up as a publisher and join the CPA Lead Generation Network where you can promote PPC offers or PPA offers and start raking in your earnings.
