Choose the Right Program to Market

How to Choose the Right Affiliate Program

Not all affiliate programs are created equally. In fact, some companies hardly put forth any effort, leaving their affiliates to fend for themselves. Other companies, however, take great initiative to support their affiliates and to motivate them to promote their products.

Here’s how to choose the right affiliate program.

Step #1 Start the search. Search affiliate program directories for top level programs. And research online. Visit websites that provide products and services relevant to your chosen niche and search for ‘affiliate program’ ‘partners’ or other words which might indicate they have an affiliate program. Make a note of the products, services and companies that interest you. It’s time to dig a little deeper.

Step #2 Evaluate commission percentages. This is the first point to evaluate but certainly not the last and it may not be the most important. However, make note of the commission rates each of your potential affiliate programs pay. Consider creating a spreadsheet to compare programs so you can choose the best ones based on all the criteria once you’ve gathered the information.

Step #3 Evaluate cookies. No, not chocolate chip cookies, but those little tracking devices that tell a company where a customer came from. Lifetime cookies are the ideal because then no matter when your visitor decides to make a purchase, you get the credit for it. If the cookie only lasts a week or a month, you may miss out on sales.

Step #4 What does their sales page look like and what is their conversion rate? Your job as an affiliate is to pre-sell. You want to make sure you’re sending people to a sales page that converts. If you visit a potential affiliate program’s sales page and the website or sales page just doesn’t work or has a low conversion rate then you know all your pre-selling efforts are going to be wasting a lot of time and effort.

Step #5 Support and marketing materials. What do you get when you’re an affiliate? Some companies provide an abundance of information and marketing materials, others provide a link and nothing more. The link only programs aren’t necessarily bad. However, it’s nice to have buttons, content, graphics and other materials to help promote a product or service.

Step #6 Review their customer service. You not only want to have a good customer service experience as an affiliate with top notch affiliate support. You also want to know that the customers you send to this company are going to be treated well and appreciated.

Step #7 How often do they pay? Some affiliate programs pay quarterly, some pay as soon as you earn a commission. Slow payers aren’t necessarily bad programs. It just helps to know when you can expect your money.

As more and more companies realize the benefits of having an affiliate team, they’re not only creating affiliate programs, they’re improving their programs too. This means there are many good affiliate programs for you to choose from.
Happy selling!

Review of Easy Cash 4 Ads

 

EasyCash4Ads Review: Scam or Legit?

EasyCash4ads Launched in December 2016 and is being touted as the new miracle program of the decade. We investigate how these claims stack up. Can EasyCash4Ads live up to the claim or is it an elaborate scam.

EC4A’s compensation plan is a 2-up system where your first two sales (which they refer to as qualifier sales) are passed up to your sponsor. Everybody has to make these 2 qualifier sales before they can start their first income leg which means the longer you are in the system, the more likely it is you will actually make a good chunk of money.

Before we get to the cost to join, let’s first have a look at the 2-up compensation plan and why it works.

On a simple 1-up where only your first sale is passed up to your sponsor, your income can quickly come to a standstill if the last person you referred can’t or won’t refer anyone. This is assuming you only started one income leg, but you can still see why this method is doomed to fail. 1-ups are typically associated with get-rich-quick schemes and our advice would be to stay away from them.

What makes the 2-up compensation plan different is that with each level you reach, the risk of your income coming to a halt is effectively halved. Continue a few levels down and it becomes almost impossible to stop it.

So how much does it cost to join and what do you get for it?

The total cost to join is a one-time $19; $9 is for your hosting and the remaining $10 goes to your sponsor. What you get for your $19 is actually a bit more than what is advertised and that is always nice when a company can over-deliver on a product.

Officially, everybody in your income leg/s will see your full page ad for 25 seconds each time they log in. While this can have a profound effect in other programs you belong to, it quickly loses its power after you have seen the same ad a dozen times, especially if you went ahead and joined whatever system your sponsor is advertising. This is where the owners used their heads and the first part of over-delivering starts.

Any new members you get into your income legs, whether directly referred or passed up from the people in your EasyCash4Ads legs, will see your ad every time they log in to their back-office, but only for the first two weeks. After two weeks they will see a random member’s ad. Not only does this put your ad in front of more eyes than simply the people in your leg/s, it also has the added benefit for newbies and those members who are slow at referring of getting a lot other people to look at their offer.

Continuing to over deliver, a special section found in your the back-office is dedicated to member contributions. Here you will find reports in both Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat PDF formats by some top recruiters in EasyCash4Ads where they outline the exact methods they use daily to get sign-ups. Just this feature alone is a gold mine as the information relates to all on-line marketing and not just for EasyCash4Ads. If you are struggling to make a dime on-line these reports will really open your eyes as to how successful marketers go about getting referrals. It is the equivalent of a guru standing over your shoulder and telling you exactly what to do every day.

A last honorable mention I want to give before passing the final verdict has to go to the affiliate resources.

While most program owners will give you two or three resources to help you promote and send you on your way, the owners of EasyCash4Ads really look after their affiliates. They cover all aspects of marketing, both off-line and on-line with an abundance of tools you are not likely to see anywhere else.

The back-office is divided in to 2 sections when it comes to affiliate resources to make it easy for newbies to start and work their way up to the more in depth tools without getting overwhelmed. Talking about tools, the capture pages and splash pages are almost works of art and sure to draw in visitors.

They also have a complete follow-up system designed to draw in new members with a mixture of information and humor. They also send members a copy-and-paste email to send to prospects who opted in to receive more information. What makes this copy-and-paste email especially powerful is that they managed to create an email for members to send out which actually does a hard sell (yes, you read that right), but they disguise it as a very innocent and sincere email.

Final verdict.

EasyCash4Ads offers phenomenal value for a one-time cost of only $19. While some marketers may consider it a pseudo gifting system, there is much more than meets the eye. As a feeder program it is a perfect fit as everyone and their uncle has $19 to spare. For those of you who already belong to FunMouse and / or GDI, EasyCash4Ads has the added bonus that it feeds into those programs as well to help you get more sign-ups without any extra effort.

This program gets our highest recommendation.

Getting Traffic

Getting Traffic to Your Affiliate Website

Affiliate marketing is like any other internet business model. The more targeted traffic you have coming to your website, the more profitable you’re likely to be. It’s not a guarantee, however, if you don’t have any traffic you are certainly not going to reach your profit goals. So let’s take a look at how to get traffic to your affiliate website.

Here are seven tips to drive traffic to your site:

#1 Social media sites.

Social media is superior at driving traffic to a website. Each post you create has the potential to reach thousands. If only 10% of those people it reaches visit your website, you still have hundreds of visits each time you post. And it’s a great way to build incoming links, boost your credibility, motivate sales and build a community.

#2 Article marketing.

One well written and informative article submitted to a few article directories can accomplish a number of traffic generation goals.

-When people read the content, they’re likely to click through to visit your website.

-Links in your article, to your website, will boost SEO page ranking.

-Publication tends to generate interest and awareness which both lead to more traffic.

#3 Blogging.

Post on your own blog or be a guest blogger on a blog with a large number of subscribers. Like social networking, if you offer an informative or entertaining post, you’ll have people clicking through to your website and generating traffic

#4 Comment on other blogs.

Participate in your online community. On most forums and blogs when you participate and comment you can post a link to your website in your signature. This actually can generate a ton of website traffic, particularly if you’re posting informative and interesting comments on relevant blogs.

#5 Video Content

Video seems to be the big thing right now and it really works. Video tends to be much more viral and can generate a lot of traffic. Just as you would with any content you put out there, make sure it offers value to your prospects.

#6 Joint Venture Partnerships

Partnering with a relevant or compatible business can work quite well to generate traffic to your affiliate website. A partnership can be anything from guest blogging on each other’s sites, swapping advertisements or even promoting one another in your ezine.

#7 Publish reviews for websites and directories.

This works a bit like article marketing except that you’re reviewing products and/or services relevant to your industry. Make sure to include a link to your website in your review profile.

There are a number of useful ways to drive traffic to your affiliate website. Be creative with it. Connect with your audience where they hang out and provide them with the information they’re looking for.

Affiliate Marketing – A Great Source Of Passive Income

Affiliate Marketing – A Great Source Of Passive Income

Ever wonder if there’s a way to spend your days talking, writing, and discussing a topic you’re passionate about and make money doing it? Imagine being able to spend your days talking about your favorite soap opera, car, sport, hobby or interest and actually make passive income. Affiliate marketing may be the answer to your prayers.

What Is Passive Income?

Passive income is income that comes to you passively, without a hard sell. For example, if you knock on someone’s door and say, “Hey, wanna buy…” that’s not passive income. You’re asking for the sale. However, if you email them an informative article and they click on a link in that article and make a purchase, that’s passive income.

It’s defined as “An income received on a regular basis, with little effort required to maintain it.”

Using the example above, if you email that article to 1000 people, they forward it to friends, family and associates, one article with a few links could generate a lot of passive income.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is an internet business model where entrepreneurs make passive income promoting products. They earn a commission for each sale they influence. Sales and click throughs are tracked with unique affiliate links.
Generally, affiliate marketers make their money by creating content in the form of:

* Audio
* Video
* Articles
* Reports
* Ebooks
* Autoresponder courses
* Online courses
* Social networking posts
* Blog posts

They include links to relevant affiliate products or services in their content. Readers or visitors click through and make a purchase. The affiliate marketer gets a commission on that sale. Content is generally considered the single most important tool an affiliate marketer has to make a passive income.

The Ideal Lifestyle?

As an affiliate marketer the goal is to find a topic you’re excited to spend your time writing and talking about. In addition to content, you can also get involved in your community, participate in social networking, blog, guest blog and make sure you’re noticed.

As an affiliate marketer you’ll need a website or blog, passion for your topic, and a means for communicating with your audience. You’ll also want to have a few quality products or services to promote. Once you’ve set up your affiliate business, it is passive income. Create content, link to your relevant products or services, and make commissions.

Affiliate marketing is a great way to make a living. There’s no other way to live an ideal internet entrepreneur lifestyle. Take the time to set your business up right and the sky is the limit, all your business building dreams can come true.

Affiliate Marking Dos and Don’ts

Affiliate Marketing Do’s and Don’ts

Affiliate marketing is a fantastic way to earn a passive income. You can also grow your business to provide a full time salary for you and your family. The profits you are able to earn depend on your goals and your level of commitment. In order to succeed and help you achieve your affiliate marketing business goals, we’ve compiled a list of affiliate marketing dos and don’ts:

Do: Spend time finding the right domain name. Look for one that is memorable, descriptive and includes keywords that people would use when searching for the products and services you’ll be marketing.

Do: Research and know your keywords. Ideally, you’ll find a number of keywords that have low competition and high search volume. You can find this information by using a number of free keyword tools found online.

Do: Create a content plan before you launch. Make sure you have a wealth of topics to talk about or write on. Your keywords may be able to help you with this task. Content is your foundation. Create audio, video, or print content – whichever suits your market and your personality and skills.

Do: Consider a blog. Blogs have a knack for catching the attention of search engines. And they can be added to an already existing website to market your brand and personality.

Don’t: Just put up a website full of content and sit back. The more frequently you update your website or blog, the more traffic you’ll have. People like fresh content and the search engines do too.

Do: Strategically integrate affiliate links into your content. These links tend to work better at generating click throughs than banner ads.

Do: Use social networking to build your business. Social networking may be your most successful marketing tactic. It’s a fabulous way to interact directly with your audience and to increase awareness. Create an attractive and compelling profile page for each site, and include links to your website. This alone will help you get better search engine rankings and traffic.

Don’t: Merely promote on social networking sites. Interact. Visit other members’ profiles, add some friends, and join and participate in some groups or forums.

Do: Use a variety of content to promote your affiliate products and services. Options include but are not limited to:

Articles
Reviews
Reports
Ebooks
Online courses or autoresponder courses
Tips, quotes or information nuggets
Blog posts
Podcasts
Video content

Do: Consider using a pay-per-click advertising campaign. This type of program allows you to bid on keywords related to your business in order to get visitors to your site. You can set a budget that will not be exceeded, and you only pay for actual visits. The most popular pay-per-click provider is Google AdWords (Adwords.Google.com), but there are also several others to choose from.

Do: Use analytics. Find out what articles and information is attracting attention and what keywords people are using to find your website or blog. This information will help you fine tune your content strategy so you can provide more of what your audience is looking for.

Don’t: Join any and every relevant affiliate program. Only join those you feel strongly about and those which have good affiliate programs. This means good commissions, pay out times, customer service, and a quality reputation.

Do: Have fun! Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn a living. Your enthusiasm for your topic and your business will be contagious. You’ll attract a fun group of people who are as passionate about your topic as you are and you’ll build a profitable community of followers.

Affiliate marketing is one of the best ways to make profits online. It’s a business model that supports many lifestyles. It’s also a great way to spend your day – making money talking about a topic you love.

Affiliate Marketing Basics…

Affiliate Marketing Basics– What Is It And How Do I Start?

Affiliate marketers have been around for quite some time now. The business model continues to adapt and change as the industry and consumers change. However, it doesn’t show any sign of slowing down as a business model. It is still quite a viable and potentially profitable way to make money.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing is an internet marketing business model where a person earns a commission based on sales or website visits they have a direct influence on. Different businesses offer different affiliate programs. Some pay a commission for each sale a person sends them while others pay for click-throughs to their website. Generally, most pay based on sales.

However, an affiliate marketer isn’t a ‘salesperson’. Their job is to promote products and/or services, not to sell them.

An affiliate may promote products in a number of different ways. Generally, an affiliate marketer will have a website devoted to a niche topic– say, for example, coffee mugs. They’ll write content on coffee mugs, review coffee mugs, review stores that sell coffee mugs and discuss the finer details about coffee mugs.

The content they write or produce will link to websites that sell coffee mugs. The affiliate marketer has presumably signed up for their affiliate program and each time someone reads their content, clicks on the link and buys a coffee mug, the marketer earns a commission.

It’s a great business model because just about every product or service under the big yellow sun has an affiliate program or two available. This means you can earn money writing and talking about a niche you’re passionate about. Love yoga? There are affiliate products you can promote. Enjoy working on cars? There are affiliate programs for you too.

So How Do You Get Started as An Affiliate Marketer?

The first decision to make is what niche topic you’re going to focus on. Find a topic you can write or talk about every single day. Find a topic that gets you excited and out of bed and keeps you up late at night.

The second step is to then take your passion and do some research. What affiliate programs fit your niche? You can search affiliate directories and there are a few good ones to join. You can also search for quality companies that you enjoy and would be delighted to represent and if they don’t have an affiliate program, tell them you’re interested in promoting them and see what happens. Most businesses have a link on their website if they have any type of partner or affiliate program.

Finally, look into how you want to structure your business website. Do you want to host a blog or a content based website? What type of content do you want to provide, audio, video, written? It’s up to you and your strengths and preferences.

Read up on your audience and your industry and start creating content. Social networking is a great way to promote an affiliate business because it enables you to interact with other people who are interested in your topic.

Affiliate marketing is a wonderful business model for both part-time and full-time entrepreneurs. It gives you the unique opportunity to make money talking about something you enjoy.

Happy selling!

A Day In The Life Of An Affiliate Marketer

A Day In The Life Of An Affiliate Marketer

Being in the affiliate marketing business is not that hard now with the internet at your disposable. It is much easier now compared to the days when people have to make use of the telephones and other mediums of information just to get the latest updates on the way their program is coming along.

So with technology at hand, and assuming that the affiliate is working from home, a day in his or her life would sound something like this…

Upon waking up and after having breakfast, the computer is turned on to check out new developments in the network. As far as the marketer is concerned there might be new things to update and statistics to keep track on.

The site design has to be revised. The marketer knows that a well-designed site can increase sign ups from visitors. It can also help in the affiliate’s conversion rates.

That done, it is time to submit the affiliate program to directories that lists affiliate programs. These directories are means to attract people in joining your affiliate program. A sure way of promoting the affiliate program.

Time to track down the sales you are getting from your affiliates fairly and accurately. There are phone orders and mails to track down. See if they are new clients checking the products out. Noting down the contact information that might be a viable source in the future.

There are lots of resources to sort out. Ads, banners, button ads and sample recommendations to give out because the marketer knows that this is one way of ensuring more sales. Best to stay visible and accessible too.

The affiliate marketer remembered that there are questions to answer from the visitors. This has to be done quickly. Nothing can turn off a customer than an unanswered email.

To prove that the affiliate is working effectively and efficiently, inquiries would have to be paid more attention on. Nobody wants to be ignored and customers are not always the most patient of all people. Quick answer that should appear professional yet friendly too.

In the process of doing all the necessities, the marketer is logged on to a chat room where he or she interacts with other affiliates and those under that same program. This is where they can discuss things on how to best promote their products.

There are things to be learned and it is a continuous process. Sharing tips and advices is a good way of showing support. There may be others out there wanting to join and may be enticed by the discussion that is going on. There is no harm in assuming what opportunities ahead.

The newsletters and ezines were updated days ago, so it is time for the affiliate marketer to see if there are some new things happening in the market. This will be written about in the marketer’s publication to be distributed to the old and new customers.

These same publications are also an important tool in keeping up to date with the newly introduced products. The marketer has put up a sale and promotion that customers may want to know about. Besides, they have to keep up with the deadline of these sales written in the publications.

It is that time to show some appreciation to those who have helped the marketer in the promotions and sale increase. Nothing like mentioning the persons, their sites and the process they have done that made everything worked.

Of course, this will be published in the newsletters. Among the more important information that have been written already.

The marketer still has time to write out recommendations to those who want credible sources for the products being promoted. There is also time to post some comments on how to be a successful affiliate marketer on a site where there are lots of wannabees.

Two objectives done at the same time. The marketer gets to promote the product as well as the program they are in. Who knows, someone may be inclined to join.

Time flies. Missed lunch but is quite contented with the tasks done. Bed time….

Ok, so this may not be all done in a day. But then, this gives you an idea of how an affiliate marketer, a dedicated one that is, spends the marketing day.

Is that success looming in the distance or what?

3 Things All Affiliate Marketers Need To Survive Online

Every affiliate marketer is always looking for the successful market that gives the biggest paycheck. Sometimes they think it is a magic formula that is readily available for them. Actually, it is more complicated than that. It is just good marketing practices that have been proven over years of hard work and dedication.

There are tactics that have worked before with online marketing and is continuing to work in the online affiliate marketing world of today. With these top three marketing tips, you will be able to able to increase your sales and survive in the affiliate marketing online.

What are these three tactics?

1. Using unique web pages to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together just to save some money on web hosting. It is best to have a site focusing on each and every product and nothing more.

Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product can do to those who buys them. Also include testimonials from users who have already tried the product. Be sure that these customers are more than willing to allow you to use their names and photos on the site of the specific product you are marketing.

You can also write articles highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what the page is about and will want to find out more.

2. Offer free reports to your readers. If possible position them at the very top side of your page so it they simply cannot be missed. Try to create autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box. According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with a prospect.

Only two things can possibly happen with the web page alone: closed sale or the prospect leaving the page and never return again. By placing useful information into their inboxes at certain specified period, you will remind them of the product they thought they want later and will find out that the sale is closed. Be sure that the content is directed toward specific reasons to buy the product. Do not make it sound like a sales pitch.

Focus on important points like how your product can make life and things easier and more enjoyable. Include compelling subject lines in the email. As much as possible, avoid using the word “free” because there are still older spam filters that dumps those kind of contents into the junk before even anyone reading them first. Convince those who signed up for your free reports that they will be missing something big if they do not avail of your products and services.

3. Get the kind of traffic that is targeted to your product. Just think, if the person who visited your website has no interest whatsoever in what you are offering, they will be among those who move on and never come back. Write articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports. This way you can locate publications that is focusing on your target customers and what you have put up might just grab their interest.

Try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, with at least 300-600 words in length. By continuously writing and maintaining these articles you can generate as many as 100 targeted readers to your site in a day.

Always remember that only 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or get your services. If you can generate as much as 1,000 targeted hits for your website in a day, that means you can made 10 sales based on the average statistic.

The tactics given above does not really sound very difficult to do, if you think about it. It just requires a little time and an action plan on your part.

Try to use these tips for several affiliate marketing programs. You can end maintaining a good source of income and surviving in this business that not all marketers can do.

Besides, think of the huge paychecks you will be receiving…
