Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways of promoting your product or service on the Internet.
A growing number of businesses are using affiliates to increase their website traffic, capture leads and increase sales. Most of the biggest marketers rely on affiliate programs for traffic, which means they also rely on their affiliates for leads and sales.
If you have a product or service and you want to sell more of it, seriously consider setting up an affiliate program.
If you want to know how to set up your own affiliate program I recommend you take a look at
Sales Army Secrets by Jimmy D. Brown
Sales Army secrets is a complete course and includes audio and transcripts as well as bonuses to help you either get an affiliate program up and running from scratch or greatly improve your existing program. Jimmy shares ideas and techniques that have helped him attract many affiliates and keep them motivated, promoting his products and earning him money.
He shares step by step, how you can get an affiliate program set up within a matter of hours, what tools you need to provide your affiliates, and what you can do to support your affiliates and get them selling for you regularly.
I like the step by step approach. It is great for a beginner who doesn’t have an affiliate program yet, and it also contains advanced ideas and strategies that helped improve my affiliate program. After going through the audio and transcript for the first time, I came up with 2 pages of ideas and changes that I am working on.
Affiliate program management
I chose WAHMCART for my affiliate program.
I chose them because the monthly charge is reasonable and I get affiliate management, unlimited autoresponders and a shopping cart combined. Regina Baker answers emails and will get on the phone with you to sort stuff out if necessary. You get secure electronic delivery.
This has all the bells and whistles and you pay much more because of that. It is good, and if you expect to do a lot of business it may be your best choice. They have a responsive help desk.
This is similar to Clickbank but easier to use. You don’t have to have your sales page approved. You can list your first product for free, then pay a small charge for an unlimited number of product listings when you have more products.
E Junkie allows you to sell your downloadable product online for a small monthly fee.
There are other affiliate management providers, but these are the ones I either use myself or have heard good reports of.
I’d love to know if you found this helpful.
