5 Starting Tips for New Affiliate Marketers

Affiliate marketing has become popular for people looking to increase their income or start their own business from home with minimal start up costs. One of the advantages is that you don’t have to be a technical guru to become an affiliate marketer. However, there are a few tips that can help get you started on the right track, and avoid some of the pitfalls that can be costly if you don’t know what to look out for.

1. Look for unique products to promote

If you choose to promote the same product as thousands of other affiliates you are setting yourself up for major competition. Whereas finding a unique but still in demand product can give you the added advantage of not having to compete with so many other affiliates to find traffic (buyers).

2. Check out the merchants affiliate program and tools

When you first start your affiliate marketing you will find that having signed up to promote a product that provides a lot of affiliate support will make your life a lot easier than having to do everything yourself. It is worth taking the time to check out the different merchants before making your choices about products to promote. You will find that many supply you with banners, images and even in some instances keywords and articles that you can use on your websites.

3. Some Examples of affiliate resources:

  • Articles
  • Pre-written emails
  • Banners
  • Adwords adverts
  • Free eBook samples
  • Product Images

4. Tracking your websites.

One of the most overlooked aspects of affiliate marketing is the failure by many to track and test their results. This can make a lot of difference to the effectiveness or your campaigns and how successful you can become by sometimes just making a few small tweaks to your sales copy. It is important to know where your visitors are coming from and how they are finding you, and then track what they are looking at when they do visit your site.

There are a number of tracking software programs available for purchase, but if you are being budget conscious at the beginning at the very least use Google analytics which is free.

5. Passive or re-occurring income.

An affiliate marketer receives a percentage of the sale of a product as pre-determined by the merchant (owner of the product) this can vary dependent on the merchant. In many cases this is a one off sale, but another alternative to consider is promoting items such as membership products, this means you will get an ongoing percentage paid to you each month that the buyer remains a member. Consequently after having made that initial sale, you don’t have to do any further work to keep receiving a further monthly payment.

Affiliate marketing can be a very lucrative source of additional income, by just following the tips above you can get started in your new business enterprise without having to make any major dents in your wallet.

On a final note you should keep in mind that setting up an affiliate marketing business is just that a business, so be prepared to put in a bit of work at the beginning and don’t get distracted by the promise of shiny toys that will do everything for you.

    • thank you

      It will be a good lesson. Because we do it ourselves.

  • My developer is trying to convince me to move to
    .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea
    because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve
    been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am anxious
    about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated! http://1su.net/8Nz0

    • We will move the WordPress web site offline whether we are moving from one machine to another host or from one host to another host. The same principle applies in the move. Let’s see it.

      First, let’s prepare the package from the Duplicator on the original. I will prepare the package again soon. For backup with a detailed Duplicator, I have made a look in the video then.

      When we are at the back of WordPress home, we go to the Duplicator menu and go to Packages.
      We will be in front of the Pakages of the Duplicator. Then we create the Packages by pressing the Create New button.
      Follow Steps from top to bottom.
      Requirement Pass is green, if not Pass, we can click to see details. Then edit it. If we can not fix it. We need to ask our web hosting help.
      Package name, we have it.
      Storage is not required. Because the free version is not.
      Archive if we will move the site. I do not have to choose anything. Because we have to move all the files.
      Installer is not required to enter the information.
      Then check the information and press the Next button.
      The scan will be a summary of what we are going to Backup the red is offline because it may have an error I have a warning that a large file may be restored to the destination is not for some host. But I do not use it. Go to the bottom of the page and click the Build button.
      Download the Installer with Archive, or if we accidentally hit the page. Do not panic. Go to the Packages page and click Download.
      Next we will move the site. Go to hosting offline offline. We have to have the following information.

      FTP: File transfer information
      Database: Database Information contain with
      Database Host: Mostly localhost
      Database Name: Database Name
      Database User: Database User Name
      Database Password: Database Password
      Web Folder: Most of our web folders are htdocs or public_html.
      By this information. We will be from the web hosting we use offline. We have many web hosting to create it. Please consult with the host we are working on in this section.

      Enough information We will upload it. File Zilla is an FTP client for free download.

      1) When File Zilla is open, it will fill FTP, which will have a Host, User and Password as soon as you press Quick Connect.

      2) The left is the machine we are offline. The right is a host. In the case of a public_html I double click on it. If someone has another file on the host to move to another place before it offline, we will deploy it to the offline. We will probably create a new folder named backup_201612, then move the old file to the folder.

      3) Then let us find the file we want to upload on the left. Then select the file right click and then upload it will have two files: installer file and archive file to upload both files.

      4) When we upload it. Let’s go to the web browser. Then type our domain name followed by installer.php. If anyone’s open, there will be no shock. In case of failure to return to File Zilla, right click on our Web Folder in the case I will be public_html, then select File Attributes, we choose to write two boxes. Make a mark. By double clicking OK and then back to our web browser.

      5) Try Refresh to see if it is missing or if it is missing, then follow the steps. We will need to create a database before we select Connect and Remove All Data and then enter our database information, then press Test Connection if successful. We filled out the wrong information There is no such database in Hossein.

      6) When the test connection is complete, let us down below, select I’ve read all warnings and notices, and then press run deployment. Really? We have a good press.

      7) After that, Duplicator will give us information about the new site, such as URL, Path, and Title of the new site. Normally, he would have to be a host for us. After you finish the data, press run update. When finished, it will be the Final Step, we click the button.

      From the Save Permalinks menu, you will need to login using the same password from the original web site. Once you login, click save one time.
      Test Site button as soon as we enter the site. Let us take a look at our website. And try to see the menu. Oh no!
      Security Cleanup removes the installer files from the host for security reasons. I finished the ceremony.
      We can see that we can move the site with Plugin Duplicator, whether it is moving from the host to the host. From one host to another host is very comfortable.

  • Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup.

    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

    • Setting a password to guess it will help prevent hacking.
      Administrators should define accessibility. Allows the display of posted comments. Be determined by yourself.
      It already exists on the WordPress widget.

  • I’m not sure why but this site is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue
    on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem
    still exists.
