Improving Your Affiliate Sales With These Tips

By Joseph Stan

Over the past few years affiliate marketing has changed a lot, mainly because right now there's more competition and sometimes it's a little harder to make money especially if you are brand new to the industry. Hopefully the tips in this article will help you achieve better results in your affiliate marketing ventures.

There are thousands of affiliate products and programs out there, in my opinion if you really want to make the big money you need to go for affiliate programs that pay recurring commissions. There are not a lot of them but products like webhosting, membership sites and software are a few examples that actually can pay recurring commissions. The benefit is that you make the sale once and you make money from that sale every month for as long as your customer pays.

If you plan on advertising your affiliate product on your own site make sure you are not using pop-up ads. Not only are they really annoying but most browsers automatically block pop-ups. A good alternative might be pop-unders which are most likely to get seen and you won't be pushing a product in front of your visitors face.

If you own your own product you may want to have your own affiliate program. Offer to include your customers in your affiliate program. You can ask the customer if they would like to be an affiliate for you after they have made a purchase. One sale can lead to a multitude of them if you can get a customer interested in being an affiliate themselves. This practice can broaden your sales network and help you reap some real benefits from affiliate marketing.

One of the biggest mistakes made by affiliate marketers is trying to promote too many things at the same time. If you spread your energy on too many ventures you might not focus on making money with one program. We suggest focusing only on 2-3 programs because you can be a little more focus on earning from 2-3 programs instead of promoting 10 different stuff. In the end you have to understand that if you want people to buy from you then you need to create great content that people will find value in.
