This is the simple reason why you should collect the contact information of those who download your reports
and ebooks. You can send email follow-ups to these contacts to remind them to make a purchase from you.
Get the contact information of a prospect before sending them to the merchant’s website. Keep in mind that, as an
affiliate, you are providing free advertisement for the product owners. You get paid only when you make a sale. If you
send prospects directly to the vendors, chances are they would be lost to you forever.
But when you get their names, you can always send other marketing messages to them to be able to earn an ongoing commission
instead of a one-time sale only.
Publish an online newsletter or ezine. It is always best to recommend a product to someone
you know than to sell to a stranger. This is the purpose behind publishing your own newsletter. This also allows you to develop
a relationship based on trust with your subscribers.
This strategy is a delicate balance between providing useful information with a sales pitch. If you continue
to write informative editorials you will be able to build a sense of reciprocity in your readers that may lead them to support
you by buying your products.
Write strong Pay Per Click ads. PPC search engine advertising is the most effective means of advertising online. As an affiliate, you can make a small
income just by managing PPC campaigns such as Google AdWords. Then you should try and monitor your campaigns to see which ads are
more effective and which ones to dispose of.
3. Ask for higher than normal commission from merchants.
If you are very successful with a particular promotion, you should try and approach the merchant and negotiate a higher
percentage commission for your personal affiliate sales.
If the merchant is smart, he or she will likely grant your request rather than lose a valuable asset in you. Keep in mind
that you are a zero-risk investment to your merchant; so do not be shy about requesting a raise in your commissions.
Just try to be reasonable about it.
