How To Choose Your Upline

Written by Uche Onyema

Statistics say 95% of Internet Marketers donít make any money

online. This sad failure rate will probably not improve inrepparttar near

future either because so many newbies, and old hands, are being

left without enough support from their upline or sponsors.

There are many sponsors, especiallyrepparttar 102414 very successful ones,

who donít even bother replying emails from their downline. This

is a very worrying trend and it violates a very important principle

of network marketing which says that success comes by helping

others succeed. So how come some heavy hitters are successful

without helpingrepparttar 102415 struggling members in their downline? Well,

possible for heavy hitters to sponsor hundreds, and even

thousands of people, into their downlines without ever

communicating with them on a personal level.

5 Rock-Solid Methods For Increasing Your Online Income From Affiliate Programs" © Copyright 2003 by Mosiekk Conley

What you are about to read... are some my most personal and tested strategies for increasing my income from affiliate programs.

It seems thatrepparttar question I get most from my subscribers to my newsletter is:

"How can I make more money from affiliate programs?"

The answer to this question is so simple that I almost feel guilty about what I am going to share with you.

The most common problems I see with most people that are promoting affiliate programs are:

1. No preselling! 2. 20 different affiliate program links all on one page. 3. No personal endorsements. (this is a big one!) 4. Lacking additional incentives. 5. Targetingrepparttar 102413 wrong people.

Andrepparttar 102414 list could go on and on...

Tip #1 - Separate yourself from other affiliate marketers.

Meaning what would make me want to buy from you instead ofrepparttar 102415 other sites that I see promoting that same product.

In sales there is something that is called a USP.

Simply put, what sets you apart from everyone else sellingrepparttar 102416 same or similar products?

If you are selling air conditioning units, you would want to tell me exactly how your units will be even better thanrepparttar 102417 next guys air conditioning units.

You want to make your customer feel as though your A/C units arerepparttar 102418 best thing since "sliced bread" without distortingrepparttar 102419 truth.

If you don't, then your potential customer may go somewhere else to get an even better deal.

An easy way to accomplish this is throughrepparttar 102420 use of added incentives.

One ingenious, idea that comes to mind when selling A/C units, is to offer a free jacket with every A/C unit.

Basically signifying thatrepparttar 102421 air will be so cold that your customers will require a jacket.

Another idea would be to offer a free trip to Las Vegas.

These may seem like over-the-top suggestions but whatever it takes to separate yourself from others in your market is necessary to realize your true income potential.

Tip #2 - Putting Your Ad In Front ofrepparttar 102422 RIGHT Audience.

Again usingrepparttar 102423 A/C units as an example, it would be a grave mistake to advertise to people who live in Alaska.


Well because most ofrepparttar 102424 people that live in Alaska most likely wouldn't have any use for A/C.

It really doesn't hot enough to warrant using A/C.

Therefore, your efforts would most like be wasted on them. You would probably serve yourself better by advertising in New Mexico, Nevada, or some other place that would be better suited for A/C.

What I see onrepparttar 102425 internet, is people promoting their affiliate links on those "Start Page Exchange Programs."

While these programs seem to bring in tons of traffic, it is not targeted traffic.

For starters, most ofrepparttar 102426 people using those programs don't really even seerepparttar 102427 offers that show up. Then to top it all off, if they do see them they are probably in a totally different market, so they really have no use for your particular program.

Tip #3 - K.I.S.S. - Keep It Stupid Simple!

I couldn't think of any other way to put this.

Make it as easy as possible for your customer to get what he/she wants.

When you have other things that can either detract or take attention away from your offer, you lessen your chances of making that sale.

As mentioned earlier, when most people see just a page full of affiliate links, they are more likely to go somewhere else.

Personally, I feel likerepparttar 102428 affiliate is just trying to get my money and not trying to help me.
