Its a simple fact.
The most lucrative affiliate programs will have most competition.
Take for example web hosting, which is a very profitable type of affiliate program, pays as much as $10 a month for sales. If you wanted to buy pay per click advertising on Overture you would have to pay over $8.00 for #1 position and around $2.00 for #40 position.
So how do you get qualified traffic to your affiliate link without spending thousands of dollars? Simple, make them pay to look at your affiliate link.
What do I mean by this? The best prospects you will ever get are people who have already bought a related product from you. If you earn their trust through giving them more than they expected they are very likely to buy from you again.
Setting this up is simple. Find a product related to program your promoting. This is not as hard as you might think. Go to any search engine and type in resale rights, you will get thousands of results.
Then concentrate on selling as many copies as possible. Dont worry about making anything on initial product sale. You want to just focus on back end.
Create an affiliate program for product with a very high commission. 75% percent would be a good level to keep it at.
Then start emailing webmasters with sites related to your product and offer them 75% commission. With a commission that high you will definitely get a few to take you up on offer.
The key step in this process is setting up your customer follow-up system. Youll need a follow-up auto responder for this.
Heres a simple guide to setting this up.
