7 Tips to Help You Succeed in Affiliate Marketing

Anyone can find success in affiliate marketing but it’s not easy and all who join an affiliate marketing program will not succeed.
Find the available resources to make the money you need to quit that job and spend more time with family and friends. Achieve the best possible results with the 7 tips listed below. These are some of the tips that can help beginners succeed at affiliate marketing and make some good income from their effort.

1. Choose a Niche

This is  very important in affiliate marketing. I’m interested in informational products but can’t promote all of them, there are thousands. You need to decide on what the majority would be interested in, not just you. What if you are really into outdoor survival? I’m sure others are too but how many? I decided to Google the top New Year’s Resolutions, what is the most things people want or what they want to change? They need help, information. Provide the top “wants” and “help” to the most needs, help with achieving the top resolutions. ClickBank has the answers, help that many people are seeking. Using the top ClickBank tool on the internet, with a longevity of 10+ years, CBProads, I can offer support of individual needs or present the entire CBProads Store.

2. Carefully Select Your Merchants

Research before agreeing to work with a specific merchant.  Don’t sell consumers inferior products and risk losing future
business opportunities. Even if you played no part in manufacturing the product, as a publisher, customers will still hold you responsible as the person who introduced the product to them. That happened to me this past Christmas. I ordered a couple of “what I thought were the popular fingerlings” but received inferior versions of the product. I wrote down the name of the company and will never order from them again. You should also work with merchants who are reputable and actually pay commissions on time.  I base my decision on longevity. All my merchants have been online for 10 plus years with a reputation of paying their affiliate marketers as stated in rules stated clearly on their website. Check with the BBB if in doubt.

3. Use Captivating Content

When promoting products on your website, customers first get to interact with othe content before being directed to a link and ultimately the merchant’s website. The images and content have to “stand out.”That means the content that you create for visitors to your site should be relevant and captivating so that they feel convinced enough to click on the link and  buy the product. CBProads website offers images that jump off the page. In other words, they grab your attention. Place your mouse over images here. These images are more attractive than CB ads. First impressions are everything and if you don’t get them right then your marketing attempts will always flop.

4. Keep track of results

Do not just push for sales without analyzing your performance. Tracking your results shows you what is working, who is clicking, where the clicks are coming from and who’s buying. Tracking
includes monitoring feedback from consumers and checking the amount of sales made on a monthly basis. This will help you make a decision on whether you need a new marketing strategy or if it’s time to find another merchant. You can’t keep on selling a product that
people just don’t want to buy. Or maybe you are not showing off to a targeted market. And free is good. Always do free until you have knowledge of the paid advertising. If you jump into that blindly, you most likely will come out broke. Not a good thing. Give Money Line a peek. It’s one straight downline, all interested in making money online. A targeted audience and it’s Free.

5. Dedication

Affiliate programs are great avenues for making money but success does not come easy for a publisher. To succeed in affiliate marketing,  you must be dedicated and stay focused on building lasting networks and increasing your customer base. Once that is done, the money will start rolling in and realizing success will actually be possible. The problem with most beginners is that they want to make quick money but are not willing to put in work. And don’t forget the list. I know you have heard “the money is in the list”…it takes about 7 views before a visitor becomes a customer. That person is not going to remember where they saw the item wanted. Get a name and email and remind the visitor weekly about your product. Of course, the reminders have to be entered in a auto- responder before your offers go out.  Check out this hosting company, GVO. It’s comes with it’s own auto-responder. It’s like having your own post office inside your internet home.

6. Sell products that you believe in

It is easier to sell a product that you’ve actually used yourself or believe in. You will be making more than a sales pitch.. You must be increasing trust to succeed in affiliate marketing I can’t purchase all of the products in the Amazon Marketplace ( I wish) but I do have many. I received the Tranquilty Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser for Christmas and I love it. So relaxing. Visitors want to know about products you have really purchased and your opinion, it develops trust.

7. Update your site

To Succeed in Affiliate Marketing you must increase the visibility of your site by getting high rankings on search engines, you must constantly update the contents using target key words and relevant information. I find this the most difficult to do. Things do change overnight on the web and keeping up with the latest products, link issues and marketing changes can be daunting but check into your site about once a week, add a few posts, keep it cool, that will then help drive traffic to it.

Avoid Stress Eating. It Makes You Fat

Make it a routine

Reducing Holiday Stress To Avoid Stress Eating

I love the holiday season but it is hard not to feel overwhelmed with all the arrangements, the traveling, the inviting and the visiting of friends and families, the seasonal shopping. And the food, the food, the food. The cleaning, how can you clean when you are out running around doing all the other things? I end up throwing everything into my bedroom. I shut the door tightly, and give the “evil eye” to any curious child who decides on touring the house.

The Preparations and Decorations that the cat enjoys rolling across the room. And of course, the eating, eating, eating, and more eating! Can you feel the stress building up just by reading this? Can you relate? Yikes, you can blow your diet, (I call it healthy or clean eating) right out the window. You held it down in October with only a couple of peanut butter cups. You got through Thanksgiving with only an extra pound or two. Christmas is now thumbing it’s nose at you and God only knows what New Year’s Eve will bring.

Laughter and Enjoyment are Good things

There’ll be laughter and enjoyment, good times and togetherness. That’s a good thing but all this excitement can bring with it some uncomfortable feelings like apprehension, nervousness, and even uncertainty. It’s called stress. Stress increases cortisol levels in the body, it’s referred to as the “old age hormone.” Stress is blamed for most everything but it can be the culprit to your life going amuck. Stress eating can shoot down all your hard work you have accomplished during the past year.

Your New Year’s Resolution to Lose Weight

It’s at times like these when it’s more tempting than ever to turn to food as a source of comfort, stress eating.  Food is all around you and everywhere you look. It’s hard not to pick at the left overs or take a second piece of pie. Your New Year’s resolution to lose weight is about to go down the drain right as you are approaching the finish line!

So what can you do to reduce that holiday stress and the stress eating that goes with it? Don’t turn to the cookie jar or finish off that wonderful bucket of ice cream, or take that last slice of cheesecake.

• The first thing you can do is take a moment to breathe. Really stop everything, and just before your hand reaches the door of the refrigerator, focus instead on the cool air as it passes through your nostrils and feel your lower belly fill as you use your diaphragm to breathe in. Hold the breath in for a second and then focus on the air as you breathe it out through the nostrils, warmer now, and feel your belly cave inwards as the air goes out. I’m not sure if this will overcome the cheesecake and stress eating completely but maybe it will reduce the need to 1/2 a slice.

• Make sure you get your daily dose of fresh air and exercise, even if it is just a walk around the block. Being at a family gathering can get very warm and stuffy and all those people breathing out carbon dioxide and using up the oxygen can cause feelings of stress and cause irritability. And face it folks, you can pick your friends but you can’t pick your family. You may not like some of them in the first place. You have already noticed Aunt June checking for ” dust bunnies.” Go find the children and get outside to clear the head and calm the mind. It takes you away from the source of food and gets you participating in some healthy exercise. Exercise burns calories and if you have an A1c issue or not, it will help keep the numbers down.

• When you do eat, pay attention, all brain activity on deck!. That is, instead of zoning out and just stuffing yourself silly until you feel the stretch waistband tightening, eat slowly. See the food, smell the food, and really taste the food. Focus on the food as you take a bite. Enjoy the very experience of eating for pleasure. That way, your brain knows you are eating and will recognize the fact and notify you when you are full.  You’ll feel full sooner and you won’t be as inclined to reach for more. And this is very important to avoiding stress eating/over eating.  It takes 20 minutes for the brain, the master of the body, to know you are full. Wait that 20 minutes before making that second reach. You may not need to.

Be grateful.  Being grateful increases your feelings of contentment and this in turn reduces your stress and lowers the temptation to eat for self-comfort, reduces stress eating. Finding other ways than eating to soothe yourself is healthier and can become a habit. Habits are not always bad, make something routine, something good a routine and your over all life could improve. 30 Days, I’ve read this book. Great motivational book about changing your life by adding good habits. Helps to keep New Year’s Resolutions, prevent stress eating, prevent stress, focus and become organized.

Earn Money Through Affiliate Marketing to Fulfill Resolution

Ways of Earning Money Through Affiliate Marketing

There are basically three different ways in which one can earn money  through affiliate marketing and increase you income and fulfill one of the top five resolutions, make more money. You need a publisher with a product that you help sell.. Using a site with years of longevity like Amazon, ClickBank, Neobux, or CBProAds to earn money  and recomend to your visitors, hopefully customers is the best way to gain trust and future sales.  I’m an affiliate to all the above and they all pay and have been online 10+ years.

 Involved affiliate marketing

This is where you promote a product with a lot of authority because you’ve used it and have liked the product. This type of affiliate marketing is very effective because people will be willing to try out something just because you have used it and found it good. When your blog or social media site has many followers, that helps too. The more followers and likes on your blog or social media sites, the more trust you obtain from your readers and you can earn money just by being truthful.  Trust is the seller here. You should only promote a product that your readers will most likely enjoy and learn something from.

Honesty is a very important factor in affiliate marketing if you want to get repeat business and more customers. Give them a good product and they will come back.

Related affiliate marketing

Any serious publisher must identify a niche and focus on it. Your readers come to know your niche and follow you because they like the same topics and will follow you. Within that niche, there will be
products related to the ones that you are promoting. Put links to such products within that niche on your blog, social media sites, videos or podcasts to earn money. Visitors may come to your site because  of the products that you are promoting but they can also find additional products through these links. Put a link to another site to give your visitors more choses.

Let them decide. You don’t have to have tried these products. You are just presenting the link to another site. If a customer decides to click on the link and buy the product, you’ll still earn your commission without much responsibility. You don’t hype the product so if it turns out to be substandard, you will not bear much responsibility. This type of
affiliate marketing is good but it will not give you much income since the related products are not your primary focus.

Pay per click affiliate marketing

This is ideal for people who do not want to interact with end consumers at any level to earn money. Just make your money and move on, or continue to click. The clicling is what makes you the money. In pay per click affiliate marketing, you have no authority in the product niche that you are promoting. Just place your affiliate links via Facebook ads, Twitter ads and Google Adwords among others in the hope that they’ll click on them and eventually buy the products. Pay per click may sound easy but it really is not.  It takes much patience, consistency and clicking but a good income can be made.
