Instantly Multiply Your Income Streams With Affiliate Programs

Instantly Multiply Your Income Streams With Affiliate ProgramsDo you have a website that you’re looking to make more money from? You can instantly multiply your income streams with affiliate programs. If you have lots of traffic coming to your site and aren’t looking to add a whole lot of more work this will be the best way for you to increase revenues generated by your online business.

Affiliate marketing is when you place another businesses advertisement on your website. When choosing an affiliate program you will want to keep in mind the market that you are in. It is important to place ads on your site that are relevant to your visitors’ wants and/or needs to make the most money off each advertisement.  People visiting your site will not click on ads that don’t pertain to them.

The policies to each affiliate program vary, so be sure to do some research when choosing a program. Find out what type of payment plan the program uses and what their minimum payout is. Many affiliate programs are reputable but not all. Find out whether this program distributes their commissions to its affiliates in a timely manner. Trying to hunt down money owed to you is the last thing that you want.

The most common way to promote an affiliate link on a website is in a banner ad.  You will want to make the best use of your space and place them where they will be highly visible to your visitors. Using pop-up ads is a bad idea. These ads may be perceived as intrusive and annoying to your visitors and may drive them away from your site.

Keeping the content fresh on your site is the key to keeping the cash flow from your affiliate accounts. When you add content to your site regularly it gives your visitors a reason to come back to your site. Creating new content also allows for new visitors to find your site. Being an affiliate is a virtually work-free way to instantly multiply your income streams.


Find Products to Sell & Using Affiliate Marketing Methods

Affiliate MarketingBelow is a list of 8 Great Resources that Jeff Spicoli offered over at Ed Dale’s  Thirty Day Challenge forum.  These websites are to find products to sell on your website.  Using these tools, you can find things in your specific niche that are bestselling  (HOT) products and then put them on your own website.  This process is called affiliate marketing.  You can become an affiliate, put a link to the item on your site, and make commissions when someone buys the product.  No inventory, no shipping, no follow up, it’s an easy peasy way to make passive income.  Most large retail companies have an affiliate program but you can also … oh never mind, just sign up for the Thirty Day Challenge and learn for yourself!

The TDC helps people learn about internet marketing and specifically, affiliate marketing.  I have been a member of the TDC for several years now and also have a membership to Ed’s Thirty Day Challenge Plus .

Although the TDC was created for beginners, every year Ed introduces new tools that will benefit internet marketers at any level and I look forward to it every year!  Trust me when I say that Ed Dale is on top of what’s new in internet marketing!  If it’s out there, Ed knows about it!

The Challenge is held live once a year but all the teaching is recorded and available at the TDC site.  This year Ed is changing things up a bit and I’m excited to see what he’s got up his sleeve this time.  The Challenge begins July 1, 2010 so if you haven’t signed up yet, get over there and learn what you need to know to get started online.
