Using Product Recommendations To Increase Your Bottom Line In affiliate marketing, there are many ways in which you can increase your earnings and maintain the account that you have worked so hard for already. Most of the techniques and tactics can be learned easily. No need to go anywhere and any further. They are available online, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. One of the more important ways of increasing affiliate marketing bottom line and sale is through the use of product recommendations. Many marketers know that this is one of the most effective ways in promoting a certain product. If the customers or visitors trust you enough, then they will definitely trust your recommendations. Be very careful in using this approach, though. If you start promoting everything by recommendation, your credibility will actually wear thin. This is seen especially when recommendations are seemingly exaggerated and without much merit. Do not be afraid to mention things that you do not like about a given product or service. Rather than lose any points for you, this will make your recommendation more realistic and will tend to increase your credibility. Furthermore, if your visitors are really interested in what you are offering, they will be more than delighted to learn what is good about the product, what is not so good, and how the product will benefit them. When you are recommending a certain product, there are some things to remember on how to make it work effectively and for your advantage. Sound like the true and leading expert in your field. Remember this simple equation: Price resistance diminishes in direct proportion to trust. If your visitors feel and believe that you are an expert in your niche, they are more inclined to making that purchase. On the other hand, if you are not exuding any confidence and self-assurance in endorsing your products, they will probably feel that same way and will go in search of another product or service which is more believable. How do you establish this aura of expertise? By offering unique and new solutions they would not get anywhere else. Show proof that what you are promoting works as promised. Display prominent testimonials and endorsements from respected and known personalities, in related fields of course.

Avoid hype at all costs. It is better to sound low key and confident, than to scream and seek attention. Besides, you would not want to sound unprofessional and have that thinking stick to your potential customers and clients, now would you? Best to appear cool and self-assured at the same time. And remember; prospects are not stupid. They are actually turning to experts and may already know the things that you know. If you back up your claims with hard facts and data, they would gladly put down hundreds, or even thousands worth of money to your promotions. But if you don’t, they are smart enough to try and look at your competitors and what they are offering. While recommending a product, it is also important that you give out promotional freebies. People are already familiar with the concept of offering freebies to promoting your own products. But very few people do this to promote affiliate products. Try to offer freebies that can promote or even have some information about your products or services. Before you add recommendations to you product, it is given that you should try and test the product and support. Do not run the risk of promoting junk products and services. Just think how long it took you to build credibility and trust among your visitors. All that will take to destroy it is one big mistake on your part. If possible, have recommendations of products that you have 100% confidence in. Test the product support before you begin to ensure that the people you are referring it to would not be left high and dry when a problem suddenly arouse. Have a look at your affiliate market and look at the strategies you are using. You may not be focusing on the recommendations that your products need to have. You plan of action is sometimes not the only thing that is making your program works. Try product recommendation and be among those few who have proven its worth.

products that have already been on the market. You can actually check the salability of these products with the company.

What You Need to Know About Affiliate Marketing Well you have finally done it. You have packed in the rubbish job and told your boss exactly what you think. You have taken the plunge and made the decision to begin your own affiliate marketing business. Affiliate marketing can be very lucrative. It provides people with the opportunity to work for themselves with very little risk to them. Those that are sales savvy, good at marketing and are not afraid of a little hard work can often do incredibly well with an affiliate marketing program. Affiliate marketing sounds easy but you do need to exercise some caution. You want to avoid the affiliate marketing pitfalls that can ruin your business and worse, have you crawling on your hands and knees back to that boss that now knows how you truly feel. People tend to get excited when they start a new venture. Unfortunately this excitement and eagerness can cause them to miss key things in their agreement. Whenever you sign up for an affiliate marketing program, you will be expected to sign an agreement. The terms and conditions of the agreement for both sides should be outlined. However, if they want to hide something this is where they will put it. It will either be in the small print, so get your magnifying glass out, or they will baffle you with legal language. Either way, you need to read and understand your agreement thoroughly to avoid disappointment and lost earnings. If you are signing up for a commission based affiliate marketing program then you need to understand how the term revenue is defined. This is one of the biggest pitfalls of the contracts. They may advertise 5-10% commissions but it all fall on how they define revenue. Most affiliate marketing programs will calculate commission on the gross value of the sale. In other words, the amount of money the site will get at the completion of the sale. You may think that this sounds great. However, you need to read this part of the agreement very carefully. The amount of the sale almost always excludes credit card or debit card payment surcharges. They also are likely to exclude payment and delivery charges as well as any gift wrapping or other surcharges. What sounded like a nice commission is soon shrinking before your eyes. Ask these questions specifically before you sign an agreement. Some affiliate programs are even stricter in their definition of revenue. Your commission may be based on the profit margin of the sold product. For example, if you help sell a book for 20 dollars but the company only makes 10 dollars profit, you’ll receive a percentage of 10 dollars not 20. This can make a substantial difference in your earnings. Again, make sure

you understand these things and ask specifically what your commission will be based upon. Read your agreement and look out for odd sounding clauses. These could come back to haunt you later. Something else to beware of when you work on commission is returns. Many affiliate marketing companies only pay commission out on completed sales and then only if the customer keeps the item. If they return the items your commission could be cancelled. To really rub salt in the wounds, you could be billed for the outstanding commission if you do not have sufficient commission credit built up. Make sure you understand this before signing on. You cannot expect a company to pay you a commission on an item that is returned but make sure you understand their return policy. Find out your rights in this situation. Affiliate marketing can be a great way to earn money. If you have good sales and marketing skills then it can give you the opportunity to put them to good use. You’ll be able to work for yourself and not someone who undervalues and does not appreciate them. One needs to consider affiliate marketing carefully. Make sure you understand your agreement and exactly what you will be paid for. You don’t want to have to go crawling back to your boss begging for your old job back.

Your Affiliate Marketing Guide Affiliate marketing is something that many webmasters know how to do. They know what it is about, and what it takes to be successful. However, if you are new to the webmaster world, you may just be wondering how you can get into affiliate marketing and making an income on the side for yourself. Doing so is not that complicated, and we have created this guide to get you started. First of all, let’s cover just exactly what affiliate marketing is. Affiliate marketing is when you sell or get leads for someone else’s service or product. You are going to find that there are so many people that do this. When a company needs some help making sales, and they allow people to sign up as affiliates, they are willing to pay a commission or a flat rate per lead or sale. Depending on the company, this percentage or flat rate will vary. Affiliate marketing can be used to make a decent income several ways. You can use a website, a blog, newsletter, email, ads etc. The list goes on and on. However, the most popular form of affiliate marketing is done with a website. When you choose the market that you want to promote, be sure that you choose one that you are somewhat familiar with. This way you can become an expert on the topic, and everyone will know that you are the king of that market. Once that is done, it is time for a URL. There are many places that you can get your own domain from. Once you have decided where you will purchase that from, choose a URL that has the topic you are selling in the URL for the best results. For example, if you are wanting to market cat food, you won’t use a URL that has dog in it. Make sure that everything is all relevant. Now that you have your market and your URL chosen, you will want to determine the hosting that you will use for your website. You need dependable hosting for the best results. A hosting company that has more up time than down time is best because during the down time, your website will not be accessible. So, get some recommendations from others that have tried a few and use the best that you can find. It is worth it to pay for good hosting. Once that is done, you are ready to get your affiliate links and website set up so that you can market the most effectively. Determine the amount of money that you want to make, and set up an outline of how you are going to make it. There are so many ways that you can get a website out there

Learning SEO which is also known as search engine optimization is a great idea. Using SEO to get your site higher in the search engine rankings with keywords will pay off in the end.

THE 7 REPORTS: 7 Things You Need To Know About Affiliate Marketing

7 Quick Tips For Online Business 1. Don’t be lazy. Internet business is not a get rich quick scheme, so don’t expect to become rich and successful overnight or without any work and effort. This is real business and it does require work, time and effort. If you don’t work hard at start, you can’t expect to become successful fast. Don’t rely on “quick install push one button software” because they don’t work. The only thing they will do on one push is take you money.

2. Work smart, not hard! When I say you should work hard, I have “long hours” on my mind. Expect to work for a couple of hours per day at start (as many hours as you can), but that doesn’t mean you should lose your time and effort on tasks that can be easily replaces with software, script or simply outsourced. Use your head and avoid putting your effort in something you can done much faster and more easily with some “help”. If you can buy a plugin that will automate something, or software that will help you to cut down time needed for some tasks – buy them! Time is money, don’t forget that.

3. Learn how to get traffic. Without traffic your websites won’t earn you any money, so learn how to get traffic or get someone to generate it instead of you. Again, time is money, so don’t lose time on traffic generation methods that doesn’t work for you. Some people are great in SEO, other sucks at it. If you can get relatively fast results with methods for generation free traffic, simply start buying traffic. Paid traffic is in many cases better solution than wasting time on SEO that doesn’t work for you.

4. Design does matter. Some marketers tend to say that “ugly sites sell better”. That could be true – for them, but that’s not a rule so don’t fall for that. Design does matter. You don’t need to have the most beautiful website on the Internet, but your websites should look nice and appealing. Those old times when ugly sites were OK have passed and people know that. So,

do as much as you can to create good looking and professional websites. You wouldn’t buy from some guy who doesn’t take care of his look, so why would you expect people will buy from your ugly website. That’s why we are recommending OptimizePress as it allow us to create nice and professionally looking websites.

5. Don’t stop learning. When it comes to online business and internet marketing, you are never done with learning. New stuff is coming out each and every day, and you should be aware of all the new possibilities to increase your profit and enhance your online business. Don’t expect to learn how to add a link to your website and that’s it. It’s not. There is always more to learn in order to improve yourself and your online business. Keep that on your mind and never stop learning new things.

6. Don’t just join - create. Don’t fall for those invitations “join this expensive mastermind group to learn how to earn money”. You don’t need to join such groups in order to be successful online. Don’t just expect to join something because that’s the way to go. It’s not. In most cases it’s much better to invest more time, energy and effort to create something of your own than just joining something of somebody else. If you can do something or create something, than do it. That will be harder for you but in long run it will be more than worth it.

7. Keep your focus. Never lose your focus and never focus on more than one thing at the time. Those that are telling how multitasking is great are wrong. You can’t do 7 things at one time equally good nor as good as you could if that’s the only thing you need to do. So, keep your focus on one thing and don’t jump to another before you finish the first one. Also, try to avoid any distraction when you are working, in order to keep your focus on your job. So, when you are working you should avoid emails, family, friends, Facebook, Twitter, television, Skype, and so on. Remember, one thing at a time.
