The Key To Affiliate Marketing Success

This article is guest posted by Joseph Martin.

Most people think the key to affiliate marketing success is all about referring the most sales, others say it’s all about choosing the right product and while those factors play an important role on whether or not you will succeed in affiliate marketing, most marketers fail to implement the most valuable technique of all into their businesses.

Do you know what it is?

The answer is very simple “Help Others in the Process”. You see most people simply focus on making a quick buck by promoting mediocre products that don’t really work simply because they convert well or the payout is very high and they completely forget about the human element, they forget that the person on the other side of the fence put his trust and money on your hands expecting a solution to his problem. What happens next?

They get disappointed, they get upset and plain and simple they’ll never buy from you ever again. Is this what you really want for your business? Hopefully the answer is no.

This is why is so important to help people in the process of making money with affiliate marketing, you will build trust and you will build a strong and loyal relationship between you and your customers. Once that kind of trust has been established they will buy from you over and over again and your affiliate marketing business will grow bigger and stronger throughout the years.

I have to say that people are becoming wiser and wiser everyday; they know more about scams today than they did two years ago, they are more skeptical and in the very near future the only online businesses that will succeed are the ones who provide their customers with the greatest value possible.

Whether you use your blog or an opt-in list to run your affiliate marketing business, choose wisely the next affiliate program you’re going to promote since there is a fine line between making money and losing your credibility and reputation.

      You may not see the benefit of it yet but it’ll pay off when you least expect it and it will all be worth it. Just continue to do what you’re doing and let the chips fall where they may.

    I totally agree with your sentiments, you get too many people promoting stuff because it offers high commission levels, not because it’s a product that they think is worth buying.

    I agree, you need to help people in this business instead of making a quick buck.

    When you help others to have a better life, they reward you by buying your stuff. People buy from people they like. They prefer to buy from friends.

    Valid points. Marketing products that you can vouch for is crucial in building rapport with your reader base. At the end of the day, if the product reflects negatively on your website, you may be sabotaging the positive image you’re trying to portray.

    Good solid advice – its hard work to get new subscribers and to build a reputation, but it is easy and quick to loose them it and even a few poor posts can cost you a lot. Think carefully about every post and every piece of advice you give.

    You’re absolutely rigth. However the most important thing is to learn focusing only on the important factors. This also means that you should focus only on specific products you want to promote, specific methods you want to use to make more money and don’t waste your time for trying out every new thing you hear about.

    The first step to begin selling an affliate product is finding the product you want to sell. After you completed this esential step , you have to make a web site( I recomend a sales letter) and start promoting it. You can make big amounts of money with affiliate sales.
