Visitors: 129

An ideal way to get a major breakthrough with any affiliate marketing program is to seek to introduce just a little creativity into the area of marketing and generation of leads in your affiliate program. This is undoubtedly the most critical area of any affiliate program and just a little creativity and extra thought here can pay huge dividends in increased sales and profits.

There is this affiliate I know who pays people to write useful blog comments and posts reviewing his affiliate program. He strictly forbids them to include any links at all in their articles and comments and they do not even mention the name of the program. All that is done is to write positive aspects about the program like the kind of daily income the average affiliate earns working the program.

The interesting aspect here is that numerous people write back asking for a link to the affiliate program that has been mentioned and naturally that link is posted quickly in reply. Using this simple technique that emerged from just a little creativity, the affiliate is able to generate an almost endless and very regular supply of high quality qualified leads for his affiliate business.

In implementing creative ideas to help you generate quality leads for your affiliate program, one of the first things you will need to look into are the habits of most people in your target market especially the kind of sites they tend to frequent on the internet. This little piece of information will help you a great deal to know exactly where to find them.

For instance, if you were to use useful and relevant comments in blog posts (and not SPAM) it is useful to target specific sites where your prospective clients are bound to visit frequently.

The other useful tip here has to do with patience. Everybody is in a terrible hurry on the World Wide Web. This is sad because just a little patience can make a huge difference to a lot of stuff that is done.

For instance many affiliates will spam blog comment areas by leaving comments with a link to their site included which will not even be posted. On the few occasions where it is posted somehow, nobody will be interested in reading it. Yet it is much more effective to leave a comment that is relevant to the post and does not have any links on it. When folks ask for the link, it becomes much more effective in winning you prospects over a long period of time and what's more, nobody will get upset at you and what you are doing.
