Making that sale.
You and I know that nearly every Tom, Dick and Mary Jane on internet are also selling affiliate programs. In fact, there's plenty of competition for any affiliate program you pick.
Personally, I don't think you should view it as competition. That type of thinking is self-limiting. There's more than enough business for each of us.
Instead of thinking of other affiliates as competition, think of them as part of your marketing team. Watch their marketing tactics and strategies.
Then You Improve on their tactics. You Fine tune their strategies. In other words, begin looking at your competition for immediate sales help.
Go one step further. Transform your competition into your mentors. Regard them as your teachers. And yes, let them become your sales trainers.
Here's how you do that. Don't do business like they do. Be different. Set yourself apart from other affiliates.
How do you do that? Most simple operation in world...
Be yourself. Don't be afraid to let YOU out. YOU can't be copied. Use YOU as your marketing edge.
Word of Caution.
I'm not suggesting you steal from other affiliates. Nope, I'm suggesting that you learn from their style. Then... Improve. Test. Enhance, i.e. Add value. By using your unique self to your advantage.
Make sure you give thanks for their help for your improved sales stats. Always maintain a grateful attitude toward them and their unknowing help.
By way, this tactic of using YOU as your marketing edge is an example of Branding. I have an affiliate program that is all about Branding. If you're interested let me know.
