Written by Chris Small

The biggest source of my online income continues to be from participating in and promoting Affiliate programs. They provide a steady flow of checks torepparttar mail box. Some of these checks are for just a few dollars, and some of them are for several hundred dollars.

Please note that while this article is not intended to offend anyone, it is going to be direct and torepparttar 102642 point. The candy coating has been removed.

It always amazes me when I look atrepparttar 102643 stats of People who join Affiliate Programs. Over 90% of them do absolutely nothing. They don't even so much as click onto their own affiliate page. Some of this may be due to a lack of knowledge or understanding ofrepparttar 102644 process. Some haverepparttar 102645 impression that simply signing up will make them a success. But,repparttar 102646 biggest reason, in my opinion, is that they just lose interest. They only have as much interest as it takes to get signed up and hope thatrepparttar 102647 company or their upline will make them rich. They decide to "give it a try" and see what happens.

Basically, what it boils down to is thatrepparttar 102648 new affiliate marketer must believe inrepparttar 102649 program AND IN THEMSELVES enough to take some serious action.

Yes, even withrepparttar 102651 anonymity thatrepparttar 102652 Internet offers, your enthusiasm will be reflected loudly in your written words. Remember this; most people will make their purchase because of a testimonial or personal recommendation.

Use Personal Endorsements

Personal endorsements and testimonials are going to provide far more credibility than banner ads and pretty pictures ever will. You must have them. Write your own. Ask your customers for feedback. Ask your upline for their testimonial. Ask your downline. Get as many legitimate words of praise forrepparttar 102655 program that you are promoting as possible.

Have you ever seenrepparttar 102656 ads that read; "I lost xx pounds - ask me how"? They are everywhere; in newspapers, on buttons that people wear, laundromat bulletin boards, bumper stickers, etc.. As distasteful as they may be, they are a testament torepparttar 102657 power of personal testimonials.

Utilizerepparttar 102658 Full Value of Ezines

The most effective way to reach your prospects is through ezines. I won't go into allrepparttar 102659 reasons why you should have your own, there are already many fine articles on that subject. Let's just say that if you don't publish your own ezine, then you will have to pay someone else who does to present your marketing message.

The One Best Way to Make Money With Affiliate Programs

Written by Keegan Michaels

Affiliate programs arerepparttar number one most popular way to market onrepparttar 102637 Internet. There are thousands of affiliate and reseller programs covering everything from books to baseball bats.

I make a better bat, you put my banner on your site, and if someone buys a bat after coming through your link, I pay you 25 percent ofrepparttar 102638 selling price. Killer idea, right?

That one sale won't be enough money to payrepparttar 102639 mortgage or even enough to take your kid torepparttar 102640 movies. And to make matters worse, how many of your site's visitors are going to buy my bat?

Once you get pastrepparttar 102641 first blush of affiliate programs,repparttar 102642 sparkle starts to fade. You quickly see if you make any money at all, it's going to be mere pocket change.

This is one ofrepparttar 102643 reasons affiliate programs have started getting a bad name. Small site owners feel they can't make serious money with them and affiliate program owners can't get members motivated to pushrepparttar 102644 program.


I don't mean to insult anyone. But let me force you and myself to face a cold fact. Putting an affiliate banner atrepparttar 102645 bottom of your web page--crammed in there with four or five other affiliate banners--isn't going to sell anything.

Lots of sites approachrepparttar 102646 affiliate problem by making themselves a one-stop-shop for loads of links to other sites. This doesn't work very well either. People come torepparttar 102647 Web to find sites that SPECIALIZE in something particular. They rarely buy from a site trying to be a jack of all trades.


Get yourself a web site that specializes in one particular subject. The narrowerrepparttar 102648 better. If I'm hunting all overrepparttar 102649 Net for a site that tells me how to get heavy metal distortion from my little guitar amp, I jump for joy when I find your site telling me how to do it.

You could have a photo of you holding your Eric Claption guitart and leaning against your amp. You could have articles by you and other experts that tell step-by-step how to getrepparttar 102650 same sonic crunch all my favorite bands use.

And incidentally, you could featurerepparttar 102651 related products sold by GuitarCity (affiliate program) and more in-depth personal lessons from LearnGuitar (affiliate program).

What did you just do here? Realizing you don't have a weird uncle living inrepparttar 102652 basement who inventsrepparttar 102653 hot new product everyone wants, and knowing you don't currently provide a service lots of businesses need, you built a fine site around one or two products someone else makes.
