Why is it that affiliate marketers have such tunnel vision? I see the same ads in the same places for the same products and affiliate marketers wonder why they don't make any sales. If you want to get your fair share of the affiliate pie, you have to widen your net. Otherwise, you're just going to be spinning your wheels in place and you won't get the income that you could be getting if you just branched out a bit. This article is going to give you a few ideas how to do just that.
I don't know what you're doing right now to promote your affiliate product du jour, but if you're like most people, you're focusing on one thing and it's probably the one thing that everybody focuses on. . . pay per click advertising. And don't get me wrong. Pay per click is great. It's the most targeted form of promotion there is. However, there is a problem with it when it comes to affiliate marketing.
Ad you know, if you're using AdWords specifically, they have the “one URL" rule. That means that only one URL can appear on a page at a time. So if 300 marketers are promoting a hot affiliate product, only the guy who is bidding enough to hit the top spot is going to get seen. Everybody else either has to bid more per click (great way to go broke) or come up with their own domain and landing page. That's when affiliate marketing starts to get a little hairy.
So what's the answer? The answer is not to rely on just AdWords for your promotion. There are so many other marketing methods out there that you can use. Some are very cheap and others are downright free. Some of my most effective forms of promotion don't cost me a cent. And you want to know the truth? I don't use pay per click advertising at all for promoting affiliate products. The other day, I popped 5 sale for one product alone without one dime spent on advertising.
In my signature you'll find some great ways to promote affiliate products. They're cheap or even free. And they work.
If you want to have success as an affiliate marketer, you have to widen your net.
