Dear friends, when it comes to promoting affiliate programs
we all follow a certain defined process. We first go to
google.com ,type affiliate programs in the search field. When
the results get displayed we look for “high paying” affiliate
programs. By “high paying” I mean those who pay 25% commissions.
Then we visit each and every website listed and join the
programs becuse they are free! to join. We put all sorts of
banners and text ads on our links page and expect to see a
check in our mail box the next morning.
Well, I am here going to reveal a very different way of
promoting affiliate programs. Let us revise the process
Step 1 – Find the Right Affiliate Program
Search for affiliate programs with your favorite
search engine. Look for only those affiliate programs which
have products which interests you. For example if you are
interested in “radio controlled airplanes” then look for such
products first. Don’t start with promoting “herbal shampoos”
or “yoga cd’s” just because they pay 40% commissions.
Since you already know a little about rc planes it wiil be
much easier for you to promote various aspects of the
So when selecting the affiliate program keep in mind the
- Product which you know about or are interested in.
- b)Quality of the product. To know the quality of the product it is advisable to buy the product yourself first.
- The organisation associated with the product. Look for the promotional material they are giving to affiliates. This shows the confidence of the manufacturer in their own product.
- Commission structure. Some webmasters provide 2 tier commission structure. Some have a threshhold amout before the affiliates get paid. Here is a nice place to sart with. This is a list which contains 50 affiliate Programs That Pay AT LEAST 50% commissions.
- Look at our highest paying affiliate programs list 2020.
Step 2 – Prepare your Affiliate Web Page
Design a simple landing page to “presell” the product
before sending the visitors to actual sales page. Now this step
is extremely important. Why do you to presell the product ?. This
is because this is internet. No one knows you here or has seen
Normally when someone buys from the internet he is going to look
for similar 4-5 products before he gets to the final decision.
Here if he comes to your affiliate landing page it becomes
much easier for him to compare the product you want to promote
with similar 4-5 products in the category.
The landing page you have designed can have testimonials, which
you can borrow from the sales page. It can also contain your
own experience about the product. You can use before/after
situations for describing the benefits of the product. You can use
photographs of yourself using the product successfully. This
adds instant credibility to the product you want to promote.
Step 3 – Build own opt-in list
When the visitors reach your landing page you must have
a system to capture their names and email addresses. Because
as I said earlier there are many people who look for similar
4-5 products before buying. By capturing email address you can
“follow up” your subscribers later on using newsletters or
product features using email auto responders.
The best way to capture email addresses is to provide a
free gift related to the product. This free gift can be
an eBook written by you or many webmasters already have an
eBook written for the affiliates. So again this is a very
important point, join only those programs where you will find
a decent promotional material already prepared for the
That’s it friends. I hope these words were helpful. I wish
you good lick in your affiliate promotional journey
