“Ewen, How Do I Promote My Affiliate Link?”
Here then are 7 powerful tactics you can use today to promote
any affiliate program with:
==> Tactic #1: Your Own Opt-In List
If you’ve your own existing opt-in list this would obviously
be the quickest way to start. However I’d like to provide you
with some ideas to maximize the response and results you
wouldn’t otherwise get if you never applied them.
It’s always a good tactic to provide some kind of time-sensitive
bonuses to entice your list to buy through your affiliate link.
It has always work and it’ll continue to work.
You should also do at least 3 follow-up mailings as statistics
have proven that you will get the most sales from your 2nd and
Now what if you don’t have your own list to begin with?
The most logical action would be to seriously consider building
your own money-making list without delay. A complete course to
build and profit from your own opt-in list is at
Alternatively a ‘second-rate’ method is to use…
==> Tactic #2: Other People’s Lists
What do I mean by this? One quick method to leverage on someone
else’s list is through ezine advertising, particularly with solo
As in all kinds of advertising, what you want to do besides
advertising the affiliate program is also to build your own
list. A simple way to do this while promoting the affiliate
program is by using a catchy one-two sentence signature file
after your name.
The best advertising you can get is to pre-qualified targeted
lists of like-minded people, especially people with money in
hand. While these are rare and even harder to identify, an
amazing resource can be found here
==> Tactic #3: Google AdWords
You can start promoting any affiliate program in less than 15
minutes with pay-per-click advertising, especially Goolge
Since Jan 6th 2005, there had been some changes to Google’s
policies regarding advertising of affiliate products on Google
Without going into boring details, you can still advertise
affiliate programs by using landing pages customized to the
affiliate program you’re promoting.
As I’ve provided in detail exactly how you can use Google
AdWords in “Striking Affiliate Gold”, I won’t repeat it again.

==> Tactic #4: Article Marketing
This is one tactic you got to get started on because it works.
I’ve made tons of affiliate sales purely from articles. In fact,
one of my articles generated over 25 affiliate sales in a little
over 3 days on autopilot.
The key to successful article writing is to provide real
information and tips.
Make sure it doesn’t sound like an outright sales pitch. Any
recommendations you make should be added value to the article.
The recommendation should not be its main purpose.
Again I won’t be repeating information I’ve already covered.

==> Tactic #5: Leverage On Your Existing Web Pages
There’re 3 main ways to go about doing this…
One is to simply promote your affiliate programs on highly
trafficked and relevant pages of your website. Check your
website statistics to see which pages visitors view the most.
These are great target areas for your promotions, especially
if they are relevant to the affiliate product in question.
Two, recommend affiliate products on your thank you pages.
After a visitor has made a purchase from you or sign up for
your ezine, all you’ve to do is add in a short recommendation
of an affiliate product prominently on the thank you page.
Third, use your custom error (404) pages as affiliate marketing
tools. This is the page that shows up when visitors enter a
wrong URL or extension, there’s no point in wasting this space
so why not use it to promote an affiliate product?
==> Tactic #6: Capture Exit Traffic On Demand
You can quickly make extra affiliate sales just by using an
exit window or pop up window to promote your affiliate programs.
While there’re popup killers out there, you’ll be surprised just
how many percent of people actually install them – I don’t.
Fact is, pop ups, especially exit pop ups still produce good
results. Stick with one tasteful pop-up targeted to your
visitors and you’ll see great results.
==> Tactic #7: Other Quick And Simple Tips
Recommend affiliate products in your ‘thank you emails’.
This is a no-brainer, whether you’re saying thanks for joining
your ezine or for buying a product, always give your email
recipients an affiliate recommendation for a targeted product
you’ve personally found useful.
You can also create autoresponder courses on topics related
to the affiliate program you’re promoting as a form of follow-up
