Donít fall into the same trap as most affiliate marketers. Written by Mike Linley
One of biggest mistakes affiliate marketers make is that they only concentrate on building a short-term business where they just make small sales, one sale at a time. If they stop running their ads their business would cease to exist! The following strategy will allow any affiliate to build a long-term business and make repeat sales to same customer over and over again. Using this strategy will persuade potential customers that you are an expert in your field and making money will become all easier!
It is a well known fact that 95% of would-be Internet marketers never make a red cent or make a few sales then quit, believing that game is too complicated, difficult or market is saturated. However, there is a way that guarantees success, you have probably heard term Ďthe money is in listí it's true! Building an opt-in list is blue print to success; all famous marketers have huge opt-in lists.
There is no doubt about it selling products to customers costs money but by having an opt-in list you're building a customer base instead of just single sales! You can sell to same customer over and over again without having any more advertising costs. Through your newsletter or Ezine you build relationships and trust with your readers that encourages them to be loyal in doing business with you through your affiliate links!
So that said, how do you build a list? Well, easiest way I have found so far is to start referring all my traffic that I pay for to an opt-in page. After person opts-in, have them land on a thank you page where you can pre-sell them for affiliate product. You are probably already building traffic to your site but instead of sending that traffic directly to your affiliate link, send it to a page that allows person to opt-in.
The next most popular question is how opt-in page should look. Your page MUST be small, concise and to point. This means that you should NOT have a long sales letter page to get them to opt-in. Your entire opt-in page should fit on to screen with NO scroll down bar. Have a strong, persuasive headline, 5-6 bulleted benefits and then a nice big opt-in. You'll be surprised at how well this works and how spectacular results can be.
