While Internet delivers a HUGE market of potential buyers, it also delivers a HUGE amount of competition for those buyers.
If you are into affiliate programs, what is it about your business that can make you stand out from all other affiliates who are promoting exact same site?
With heavy competition around, promoting with a standard affiliate classified leading to a standard affiliate mirror site isn't going to cut it.
True, you could still get some sales this way, but if you're working toward building a sizeable residual income that can upgrade your lifestyle, 'some sales' isn't good enough.
You need to be more than just an affiliate, you need to be running your OWN business.
Here is THE KEY that can transform you from being just another affiliate, to a business owner.
YOUR OWN WEB SITE
Your own site:
*increases credibility, creates your own business *can be listed with search engines *offers grouping of programs *offers addition of personal recommendations or testimonials *allows for single URL promotion *offers a format for repeat contact *gives potential for multiple program purchases *creates structure for better downline support
You've heard it before, having your own domain name makes your business more credible. It gives people a focal point to see who you are and what you are involved in. You can then offer a business name that people can remember, and a place they can return to for future reference.
Affiliate mirror sites cannot be listed with search engines, your own site can. Offering portals to your chosen programs on your own site gives you capability to list and promote your business through search engines.
Grouping Of Programs
On your own site, you can group your programs together and let your site visitors choose from what you have to offer. This gives visitors more options to find exactly what they are looking for, and you greater opportunity to make a sale.
Recommendations or Testimonials
A personal account or description of a program will mean more to people than just basic sales copy on affiliate site. You can even lead into benefits you feel are more important that perhaps affiliate site does not stress enough. Also, this allows you to give people a different look at a program they may have seen before and passed on. Your opinion or testimonial of how program has worked for you or your downline may persuade skeptic to look harder as well.
