The big and highly competitive world of affiliate marketing does not always require that you have your own website, dealing with customers, handling refunds, product development and overall product maintenance.
This is one of the simplest ways of excelling in online businesses and earning more profits without having a single product of your own. Your product is simple the medium you used in convincing users to buy a product or service through your affiliate link.
Assuming you are already into an affiliate program, what would be the next thing you would want to do? Double, or even triple, your commissions, right? How do you do that effortlessly?
Here are some really decent tips on how to boost your affiliate program commissions overnight without sweating it or even breaking a pin from your savings.
1. Research About best Programs and/or Best-selling products to promote
Making a research on a service or product you are knowledgeable about and can easily promote is one of the first steps to increasing your affiliate commissions overnight.
Obviously, you would want to promote a program that will enable you to get the highest profits in the shortest possible duration.
There are many factors to consider in selecting such a program. Choose the ones that have a highly generous commission structure.
Always key-in to products that fit in with your targeted audience. And that has a solid track record of paying their affiliate marketers easily and on time. If you cannot seem to increase your investments, dump that program and keep looking for better alternatives to it.
There are thousands of affiliate programs online which gives you the reason to be picky. You have to pick the best always, to maintain trust and follower-ship in whatever platform you choose to promote such products.
Write free PDF reports and/or short eBooks to distribute from your site. There is a great possibility that you are competing with other top affiliates that are promoting the same program.
If you start writing meaningful short reports related to the product you are promoting, you will be able to distinguish yourself from the other affiliates, most especially for popular brands or services.
In the reports, provide some valuable information, including links and unique videos for free. If possible, add some recommendations about the products. With eBooks, you get some more credibility. Customers will see that in you and they will be enticed to try out what you are offering.
2. Collect and save the email addresses of those who download your free eBooks
It is a known fact that people do not make a purchase on the first solicitation. You may want to send out your message more than six times to make a sale.
This is the simple reason why you should collect the contact information of those who downloaded your reports and ebooks. You can make follow-ups on these contacts to remind them to make a purchase from you.
Get the contact information of a prospect before sending them to the vendor’s website. Keep in mind that 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.
3. Ask for higher than normal commission from merchants
If you are already successful with a particular promotion, you should try and approach the merchant and negotiate a percentage commission for your 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 for addition in your commissions. Just try to be reasonable about it.
Write strong pay Per Click ads. PPC search engine 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 and Overture. Then you should try and monitor them to see which ads are more effective and which ones to dispose of.
Try out these strategies and see the difference it can make to your commission checks in the shortest of time.
4. Cheap Ads & Social Media Pages
Some products sales more with ads. You can boost your affiliate commissions overnight by promoting such products via $1 ads on Facebook, Bing, bidvertisers and other cheap search and PPC advertising platforms.
Creating a social media page for the products you intend promoting gives quicker result in most cases. This is because they are easily ranked by search engines and user engagement can increase the possibility of getting huge number of sales quickly.
Another good channel for quick promotion is by creating unique YouTube videos that explains the products/services your are promoting. Insert your affiliate link below the video description to get huge commissions from users that take action immediately after watching your videos.
