How important do you think it is to market your affiliate programs? Most would probably say it’s quite important.
I would say it is difference between success and failure for affiliate. The more time you spend marketing your affiliate programs 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 heard 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 like “owner” rather than “affiliate” you will automatically focus on what is important to make sale.
In fact, you could say you have to spend MORE TIME marketing your affiliate programs than if you were owner of product because not only are you trying to get people to buy a product, you are also competing with other affiliates.
