Honestly, Iím not a big affiliate fan because inrepparttar past I havenít gotten 90% ofrepparttar 102415 money promised either because they disappear before they pay out or they have so many exceptions -- paying out once a quarter, has to be over X dollars first, etc. Another negative side is that some of them think that 10% commission or some low amount is worthrepparttar 102416 20 hours it takes for us to sell it. Usuallyrepparttar 102417 10% equal $10 and $10 isnít worth my reputation even $1000 actually.

Todayís article is not aboutrepparttar 102418 pros and cons of being an affiliate member. There are some good affiliate programs out there where you will get a check, their exceptions are small or nil, andrepparttar 102419 commission reasonable forrepparttar 102420 amount of time, risk, and reputation you place onrepparttar 102421 line for their product or program.

This article focuses on collecting their information before you give themrepparttar 102422 affiliate link so you can increase your mailing list numbers or residual income.

Almost all affiliate referrals are handled by providing someone withrepparttar 102423 affiliate link. The reader then goes from your place to their place. If this is what you have been doing, takerepparttar 102424 "L" (for loser) off your forehead, and read this to "get SMART quick."

Stop LOOSING a valuable marketing opportunity -- and stop it now!

Instead, set up a bridge page (also called a portal page or doorway page). Userepparttar 102425 terms bridge and portal instead sincerepparttar 102426 word doorway has a separate search engine meaning that can be confusing.

A bridge page works simply like this. You set up a bridge page on your web site. You send them to this page instead of torepparttar 102427 affiliate site, collect their information, and THEN send them torepparttar 102428 affiliate site.

The objective is to offer them something for f/r/e/e that they must register for on that bridge page so you collect their information. In fact, you can offer several things.

You set up two pages actually. One that isrepparttar 102429 bridge page andrepparttar 102430 other a thank you page. After you collect their information THEN you send them torepparttar 102431 thank you page. Onrepparttar 102432 thank you page, you thank them for whatever it is they did and then give them an option to NOW accessrepparttar 102433 affiliate site.
