Tips For Affiliate Marketers Survival Online

Affiliate marketers are always in the look out for the successful market that gives the biggest paycheck. Many think this is the magic formula to success online. In reality, it is good marketing practices that have been proven over years of hard work and dedication that is the answer.

These top three marketing tips have stood the test of time in their effectiveness in generating traffic and sales in the affiliate marketing arena and they will do the same for you.

What are they?

1. Use Unique Web Pages - to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together just to save some money on web hosting. It is best to have a site focusing on each and every product and nothing more.

Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product can do to those who buy them. Also include testimonials from users who have already tried the product.

Write articles highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive, compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what the page is about and will want to find out more.

Provide quality content your visitors will appreciate.

2. Offer Free Reports or e-Books or a Combination Of Both - to your readers and position them at the very top side of your page where they cannot be missed. Insert autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box. According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with a prospect.

Two things can possibly happen with the web page alone: close a sale or the prospect leaving the page and never return again. By placing useful information into their inboxes at certain specified period, you will remind them of your product. Be sure that the content is directed toward specific reasons to buy the product. Do not make it sound like a sales pitch.

Focus on important points like how your product can make life and things easier and more enjoyable. Include compelling subject lines in the email. As much as possible, avoid using the word "free" because there are still older spam filters that dumps those kind of contents into the junk before even anyone reading them first. Convince your opt-in list to buy your product or service.

3. Write Articles - Try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, related to the product you are promoting, with at least 300-600 words in length. By continuously writing and maintaining these articles you can generate as many as 100 targeted readers to your site in a day.

By the rule of thumb, only 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or get your services. If you can generate as many as 1,000 targeted hits to your website a day, that's 10 sales closed.

It's not difficult to do. It just requires a little time and an action plan on your part. Start writing and it will become next to nature in no time.

Now that you have the tools, let's put them to work!
