One ofrepparttar 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.

The following strategy will allow any affiliate to build a long-term business and make repeat sales torepparttar 149151 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 allrepparttar 149152 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 thatrepparttar 149153 game is too complicated, difficult orrepparttar 149154 market is saturated. However, there is a way that guarantees success, you have probably heardrepparttar 149155 term ‘the money is inrepparttar 149156 list’ it's true! Building an opt-in list isrepparttar 149157 blue print to success; allrepparttar 149158 famous marketers have huge opt-in lists.

So that said, how do you build a list? Well,repparttar 149160 easiest way I have found so far is to start referring all my traffic that I pay for to an opt-in page. Afterrepparttar 149161 person opts-in, have them land on a thank you page where you can pre-sell them forrepparttar 149162 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 allowsrepparttar 149163 person to opt-in.

The next most popular question is howrepparttar 149164 opt-in page should look. Your page MUST be small, concise and torepparttar 149165 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 spectacularrepparttar 149166 results can be.
