Are You Spending 75% of Your Time 'Marketing Your Affiliate Programs'?

Written by David McKenzie

How important do you think it is to market your affiliate programs? Most would probably say it’s quite important.

I would say it isrepparttar difference between success and failure forrepparttar 102569 affiliate. The more time you spend marketing your affiliate programsrepparttar 102570 more successful you will be.

The ‘Super Affiliates’ spend 75% of their time marketing their affiliate programs. This means they only spend 25% of their time working on their affiliate programs.

Contrast this to most affiliates who spend about 10% to 20% of their time marketing their affiliate programs.

You may have heardrepparttar 102571 statistic that between 80% and 90% of all affiliates make little or no money each month from affiliate programs. A big reason for this is LACK OF MARKETING.

Just because it’s an affiliate program does not mean you do not have to spend time marketing it.

Treat each affiliate program you belong to as if it were your own product. This will force you to concentrate more of your efforts on marketing. By thinking likerepparttar 102572 “owner” rather thanrepparttar 102573 “affiliate” you will automatically focus on what is important to makerepparttar 102574 sale.

In fact, you could say you have to spend MORE TIME marketing your affiliate programs than if you wererepparttar 102575 owner ofrepparttar 102576 product because not only are you trying to get people to buy a product, you are also competing with other affiliates.

Ask Mr. D - Affiliate Programs

Written by Bill Daugherty

I see a lot of references to Affiliate Programs as a way to boost revenues. However, I have never seen an explanation of what an affiliate program is and how it works. I am a producer of educational media and use my site to market my products. As I am not getting much traffic to my site, I am wondering if an affiliate program would help me.

I would appreciate any suggestions that you might have.

Dear Heron,

What an affiliate program does is reward individuals (your affiliates) for sending traffic to your site by placing a link to you on their web-site or in their newsletter.
