    Affiliate Marketing In 3 Steps

    Affiliate marketing is a process where the merchant
    will pay a portion of their sales revenue to an
    affiliate if the sale is result of the affiliate's
    promotion to the products and services offered by
    the merchant.

    Now days, it's one of the fastest growing industries
    because it's cost efficient and quantifiable for
    both the affiliate and the merchant. Other players
    can profit as well, such as the affiliate network
    or the affiliate solutions provider.

    The best benefit for the merchant is the fact that
    he will gain opportunities to advertise his
    products to a much larger market, therefore
    increasing his chances to earn. The more affiliates
    the merchant obtains, the more sales he can expect.

    With the merchant having affiliates market his
    products and services, he will save himself time,
    effort, and money in looking for markets as well as
    customers. The affiliate marketer will benefit
    from each customer that clinks on the link in his
    website and who actually purchases a product from
    the merchant.

    If you have wanted to join the growing legion of
    affiliate marketers and have an unlimited potential
    for income, simply follow these 3 steps to start
    an effective affiliate marketing program.

    1. Identify something that interests you or you
    feel very passionate about. Then, focus on a
    specific area you know a lot about, as this will
    help you bring out your best and give your
    visitors who are possible buyers a demonstration
    of your expert in this field. This way, you'll
    gain their trust and encourage them to buy the
    products that you endorse.

    2. Search for merchants and products or services
    that are related to your interest then creat a
    web site with top level domain names and very
    reliable hosting. When you choose the products
    for your web site, you need to consider the
    commission structure and the conversion rate.

    There are many different affiliate networks and
    affiliate solution providers where you can obtain
    the information on most profitable products and
    which merchants pay the best. Take your time -
    and be sure you choose the right one.

    3. Now, you are ready to promote. You've chosen
    everything you need and even created your very own
    website. You'll need to be creative, flexible,
    and willing to embrace new ideas. By this stage,
    you'll be well on your way to making more money
    than you ever imagined - and enjoying every
    minute of it.


    Affiliate Marketing Survival Tips

    Once you've signed up for what appears to be a
    great affiliate program, you've already developed
    your strategy, selected your banners, and other
    materials for marketing.

    Once you've figured everything out, you may still
    have problems developing marketing strategies and
    find yourself wondering what's wrong. Below,
    you'll find some of the most common issues that
    affect sales commissions and leads.

    Soggy cookies
    A lot of merchants use cookies for tracking your
    referrals. As a majority of customers don't
    purchase on the first visit, cookies allow for
    potential referrals to be tagged with your ID so
    that if they do purchase later, you'll get the
    credit for the sale.

    The durations for the cookies will vary from
    merchant to merchant. Some last as short as a
    single session, while others can last for years.
    If the visitor flushes their cookies on a regular
    basis, has cookie blocking software, or the
    program from the merchant isn't operating correctly,
    there really isn't anything you can do.

    Multiple methods of payment
    If you've joined an affiliate program through a
    network that processes payments of products on
    behalf of merchants, it's not uncommon for merchants
    to offer several methods of payment. While this
    is great for customers, it's bad for affiliates.

    Before you begin to advertise any products or
    services as an affiliate of a network, always
    check the merchant site carefully. If you have
    any doubt, contact the merchant before you proceed
    any further.

    Monitoring your arrangements
    Even the most honest of merchants will have
    problems with their affiliate software at some
    point in time. Therefore, it's important to
    regularly check cookies and merchant sites for
    any changes that may affect your pay.
