There are numerous ways to increase your income.
However one of the easiest and fastest ways to increase your bottom line is with the use of affiliate products.
Affiliate Marketing is a somewhat easy process to learn as many marketers have discovered.
Marketers know that they can advertise, promote and sell more of their products very effectively by allowing others to recommend and/or sell their products.
In return they reward the affiliate(s) with a percentage of the sale of the product.
Many of you have already established a list of customers you currently work with, and some you’ve worked with in the past. Some you’ve worked with for quite a while, some for a little while and others may be fairly new.
At the same time you are constantly seeking new prospects and customers.
Many of your customers already trust you, and they’re most likely going to trust your judgment when you choose affiliate products to recommend to them.
Knowing that you are trusted by your customers is very valuable. Therefore, it is absolutely in your best interest to recommend only those products that you have used personally.
OR…only recommend products by people you know and trust who are also known to produce quality products.
NEVER recommend a product just for the sake of promoting it. That could prove to be disastrous.
You can learn how to make “affiliate marketing” work for you, and it will be easier for you to turn a good profit over and over again.
The first rule of thumb is, study the field you plan to pursue, learn it well, and when you promote a product , sound like an expert in that field.
If and when you promote an affiliate product, try to make it a product that goes well with or is close to a product of your own.
Promote the product honestly. Promote both the good and the bad sides of a product (if there are any), and make sure your customers and prospects are made aware of the benefit they will reap if they choose to use the product.
Make sure there will be proper product support for the affiliate product should your customers or prospects decide to purchase the product.
This will help put their minds at ease knowing they will have someone to talk with should they have questions about the product.
If there is something that you particularly like or dislike about a product that you’re promoting, make sure you share it with your customers and prospects.
It will make you more credible and believable and your customers will thank you for your honesty.
As long as you are up front and honest with your customers and prospects, they will be willing to purchase from you and purchase products that you recommend.
Offer your customers and prospects solutions to their problems that they can’t find anywhere else and don’t be afraid to use endorsements from other experts in that particular field.
Do your homework. Make sure you get factual data to back up what you are saying about an affiliate’s product and get testimonials from others who have used the product as well.
Don’t ever Hype or Over-Hype any product and be aware that many of your customers and prospects may know just as much or more about an affiliate’s product than you.
Promote your affiliate products the same as you would your very own product with freebies and all. At the same time you’re promoting an affiliates product, promote one of your own complimentary products as well to go along with it.
Go ahead and try affiliate marketing by recommending products made by others. This could prove to be very profitable for you.
