The Secret Of Choosing A Profitable Affiliate Program
Do you struggle to choose an affiliate program for your
website. This picture reminds me of myself after building a
website and driving traffic to the website only to find out
that I cannot monetize the traffic.
I learnt the steps of creating html pages, optimizing the
websites for search engines and driving tons of traffic to
the website, but I could not monetize my traffic. I tried
numerous things. I put different affiliate links tried
positioning the links in different places. I tried
different font sizes and popup windows. I thought that the
affiliate programs that I tried just did not convert and
just did not know what to do next. I could build websites
and drive traffic to them but I could not monetize my
traffic. I nearly quit and my dreams of becoming an online
entrepreneur almost completely shattered.
One day I almost gave up my internet business up when I
decided that I would find a way that works and monetize my
traffic. I sat and brainstormed ideas. Suddenly the
solution appeared in my head. I needed to ask my visitors.
An example of how to do it with the exact steps required
follows next. Use an opt in form on your website where you
offer your visitor some kind of free newsletter or course
or download. On your first or second email to your
newsletter subscriber you simply need to ask them what
products will suit them best. Send your newsletter
subscriber an email like this:
Subject: [[firstname]], Thank You
I would like to introduce myself. I run the website
In the interest of serving my visitor's need better I would
like to know your most important concern of affiliate
marketing? Can you please take 30 seconds to reply to this
email so that I can develop products and services that will
help to serve you better.
Kind Regards [[Yourname]]
After obtaining the necessary information from your email
you need to select the affiliate program that you will use
on your website. You can use Clickbank and Commission
Junction to look for a reputable affiliate program. You
need to ensure that a significant portion of their income
must come from their affiliates which will mean that the
affiliate program converts and it should also pay at least
50% commission so that you can earn decent commissions.
Finally try to use a fairly well established company to
ensure that it will not easily go out of business and you
will not lose your affiliate commissions.
After making your list of top affiliate programs I suggest
testing the links on your website and choose the best
performing affiliate program.
Using these steps you can pick a highly profitable
affiliate program that will bring you profits for years to
