Affiliate marketing is promoting other merchants’ products.  The affiliate receives a commission for generating sales, leads or clicks for the merchant’s website.

Affiliate marketing is attracting many people who want to work from home. It allows you to work anywhere and have flexible work hours. It’s  considered by many Internet marketers as one of the best ways to earn money online.  Affiliate marketing can be a lucrative business. It seems easy but success doesn’t happen overnight for most people. To get great results, you’ll have to learn some Internet marketing basics and be persistent to become good at it.

Here are some tips to be better than most affiliates and outwit some of your  competitors.

  1. Get your own website or blog.
  2. Focus on a niche market.

How to Set Yourself Apart From Other Affiliates

The most important thing to become a super affiliate is to treat affiliate marketing as a business. If you’re doing this, a career as a super affiliate will change your life forever and could possibly replace your 9-5 job.

1. Have your own website or blog.

I know you’ve been told that you don’t need a website to promote affiliate programs. And it’s true. There are several ways that you can promote affiliate programs without having a website.  You can send people directly to the merchant’s web site through your affiliate link. You can promote affiliate programs through email and social networking. However, you can be more successful with affiliate marketing and do so much more if you have your own website. 

Potential customers go to websites to search and sometimes purchase items they are looking for. When you have a website, you can capture your visitors’ email addresses so you can stay in touch with them, remind them of the affiliate product and promote additional product. You can presell your visitors and then send them to the merchant’s website through your affiliate link.

I recommend getting a WordPress blog. Get a domain name related to the topic of your site and get hosting.  You can find more info about getting hosting here. Get my domain name recommendations here.

2. Focus on a niche market. Don’t try to market everything you see. It’s better to focus on one market and market products that your audience wants. This is called niche marketing. Promote products that cater to the needs and wants of your chosen market segment.

3. Provide valuable content.  

Provide some unique content that is only available on your website. The best way to get people to keep coming to your site is by providing something on your site that they can’t find on others.

You can use private label (PLR) content, use as is, or rewrite and reposition private label content. See more info about Private label content here.

Choose a certain market segment where you can have a potential leadership role.

4. Write your own ads. A lot of times affiliates marketers are using the ads that are provided by the merchants.  That means that many people are using the same ads. If you write your own ad, you might get more attention. Besides, your primarily purpose is to attract or encourage people to read your ads and be curious enough to click through your website.

5. Build a list.
Building a list will enable you to market to your list over and over again. A targeted list is the key to being successful with affiliate marketing. See more info here on how to build a list. 

6. Develop a strong relationship with prospects and buyers.

Creating a loyal customer base and developing good customer relationships is the secret of successful super affiliates. That involves sending them quality content regularly. To be able to answer your potential customers’ questions, it is best to buy and try the product yourself. This will make it easier for you to sell the product that you are trying to market. You can share to your potential customers what a great experience you had with the product, and this can make them interested enough to buy the product.

You may also be able to provide a tutorial or steps on how to use the product that you are marketing based on your personal experience.

Be totally honest about the product that you are trying to market. If you find out that the program you were promoting is a scam, stop promoting it and inform your readers about it. This will help you build credibility. We all make mistakes and admitting your mistake will boost your reader’s confidence in you.

7. Continue to market to your list.

8. Build traffic to your site.  Building traffic is one of the most essential parts of affiliate marketing. See free traffic methods here.

Affiliate marketing can become a great way to earn part-time or full-time income. However, it won’t happen overnight. Like any kind of business or job, you have to put work into it. Affiliate marketing can be very lucrative and once you get good at it, it’s easy to scale and repeat the process over and over again.
