The road to becoming a super affiliate can be an arduous one. It takes a lot of perseverance and commitment to building a business, and it doesn’t just happen overnight. You will have to work at it, but if you are willing to put in the effort, and use those tools that super affiliates use, you can become one to.
Good tools cost money, but they are worth it. Invest in good tools up front and make sure that you buy tools you can grow with. If you don’t, you’ll find yourself having to move to a different web host, or change autoresponders down the road. This is a hassle as I know from first hand experience.
Before you start affiliate marketing, it’s a good idea to learn affiliate marketing. Understand the different terms as well as promotional techniques. Lay the groundwork first. Choose your topic carefully. You want products you can market, as well doing the right keyword research to make sure you are using the right keywords to market. If you don’t, no one will find your content or ads.
Here are three tools/resources that will help you achieve super affiliate status:
The key to becoming a super affiliate is to build lists. By building lists, you can recycle your traffic. Send out an email, and you could end up earning hundreds, possibly thousands of dollars from it depending on how responsive your list is. This is an easy way to increase your income, but it takes time to build one.
Build a squeeze page, sign up for an autoresponder system, add the code to your page, and then start promoting. You will need your own web hosting and domain to do this, but these are inexpensive tools, and you can actually start your business for less than $ 30.
If you plan to build lists, or create blogs to promote affiliate programs, web hosting is crucial. You will also need a domain. If you’re not sure what your topic will be, buy a generic domain name or buy your name. Then you can always change topics down the road without having to buy any more domains. WordPress self hosting allows you to create multiple sites from one installation, and you can create several different sites on different topics. Don’t create too many different topics though. No more than three. Otherwise, it gets to be a hassle to create all that content, and you’re having to write on topics you may not be interested in.
3. Joint Ventures
Although this isn’t a tool per se, it is crucial to your success. Most super affiliates eventually create their own products, and having a joint venture network in place can really increase your profits.
When first starting off though, you want to connect with joint venture partners and promote their products. Promote hard and keep promoting. Make so many sales you get noticed by the partner. They’ll want to do business with you down the road. The truth is, most affiliates will quit promoting a product after about 30 days, so if you keep promoting a product, you have a better chance of earning a profit from it.
