Boost Your Affiliate Commissions Overnight

I love the way the $7 Script is gaining features. Being able to give a select number of buyers a deal on the price is an excellent concept. I've improved the Early Bird features. Now when you run the configuration file, it gathers your name and email, the name of your offer and your one time offer, and uses this information to populate all of the html pages for your site. Check it out at HERE.

Did a check of the links on my sites today. Found quite a number of dead links. Looks like Internet Marketing is killing the ambitions of quite a few entrepreneurs. I am not surprised that many of them died, because I never had anyone click on their links. I am surprised at a few though, because they had a good click through from my sites. Perhaps they weren't converting well though *8>)

If you haven't picked up your copy of the $7 Scripts, I suggest that you rush over to $7 Deal and get it quickly, especially with the new features I have added.

Boost Your Affiliate Commissions Overnight

Affiliate Marketing is one of the easiest ways of launching an on-line business and earning a good profit. Being an Affiliate Marketer does not require you to have your own web site, to deal with customers, refunds, product development or maintenance.

Once you are into an affiliate program, the next thing you would probably want to do is double, or even triple, your commissions. How can you do that?

I have put together some powerful tips that will allow you to boost your affiliate program commissions overnight.

Four Tips to Boost Your Affiliate Commissions

  1. Find out which are the best programs and products to promote. The main criteria here will be that the program or product will enable you to achieve the greatest profits in the shortest possible time.

    There are several factors to consider in selecting such a program. Choose the ones that have a generous commission structure. Make sure that the products that fit in with your target audience. Check to see that the owner/author has a solid track record of paying affiliates easily and on time. If you cannot seem to increase your income, dump the worst performing program and start looking for a better one.

    There are thousands of affiliate programs on-line which gives you reason to be picky. You should select only the best to avoid wasting your advertising dollars.

    Write free reports or short ebooks that subtly promote your affiliate products. Distribute them from your site, and allow other marketers to give them away also. Keep in mind that more than likely you are competing with other affiliates who are promoting the same program. If you start writing short reports related to the product you are promoting, you will soon distinguish yourself from your competition.


  2. When you write reports, be sure to provide some valuable information for free. Make sure to add some recommendations about the products you wish to promote. With ebooks, you get credibility. Visitors who read your free ebooks are potential customers who may be enticed to try out what you are offering.

    Set up an autoresponder or other email program to collect and save the email addresses of those who download your free ebooks. Since people do not usually make a purchase on the first contact, you want to be able to send out your message repeated in order to make a sale.

    The reason you should collect the contact information of those who downloaded your reports and ebooks is that you can make follow-ups on these contacts to remind them to make a purchase from you.

    Donít allow the contact to go to the vendorís web site before you get their information. Keep in mind that you are providing free advertisements for the product owners. You get paid only when you make a sale. If you send prospects directly to the vendor, chances are the prospect will be lost to you forever, but when you get their names, you can always send other marketing messages to them. A good list will enable you to earn ongoing commissions instead of one-time only sales.

    Publish an online newsletter or Ezine. It is always best to recommend a product to someone you know than to sell to a stranger. This is the purpose behind publishing your own newsletter. This also allows you to develop a relationship based on trust with your subscribers.

    This strategy is a delicate balance between providing useful information with a sales pitch. If you continue to write informative editorials, you will be able to build a sense of reciprocity in your readers that may lead them to support you by buying your products.


  3. Ask for higher than normal commission from merchants. Once you are successful with a particular promotion, you should approach the merchant and attempt to negotiate a higher percentage commission for your sales.

    If the merchant is smart, he or she will likely grant your request rather than lose the sales that you have the potential to bring in. Keep in mind that you are a zero-risk investment to your merchant; so donít be shy about requesting a higher commission. But do be reasonable about it.


  4. Write strong Pay Per Click (PPC) ads. PPC search engine ads are one of the most effective means of advertising on-line. As an affiliate, you can make a nice income just by managing PPC campaigns such as Google AdWords and Overture. You must monitor your ads carefully to see which ads are effective and which ones are ineffective and should be disposed of.

Try these strategies and you will see how quickly it can make a difference to your commission checks.

And again, I like the $7 script so much that I've put the whole report on a $7 Early Bird site - The first 100 get the full How to Write Your Own Killer Sales Letter tutorial for only $3.49
