Affiliate Marketing-3 Common Mistakes to Avoid


Good morning guys,

Affiliate marketing programs have become very influential and successful solution for making an income online. Almost all the good affiliate programs are free and simple to join. You can start an affiliate marketing website in 15 minutes or less and when you are promoting a product the product and sales page is already done for you all you have to do is draw the customer’s to the website and BOOM you got yourself some nice commission on sales.

Mistake #1: Most people pick the wrong affiliate program to promote. You need to do your homework and research before nose diving into a product. Keyword research will be your success in this type of market. You need to see if people are actually buying these products you are trying to sell. You always want to pick an affiliate program that interests you, don’t do it based on the % you get per sale. It is always better to be knowledgeable about the products you are offering to your future customers. This can really make a difference between getting a sale.

Mistake #2: Starting too many Affiliate Marketing Programs. You need to pick one affiliate marketing program and devote all your time to it until you can’t possibly do anymore to make it better. If you are making excellent profit, it will now be time to promote another affiliate product.

Mistake #3- No knowledge of product you are promoting. If a customer asks you questions on the product you are trying to promote and you don’t have a quick answer for them, they will know something is up and more than likely not buy from you. Always, always, always know about your product and be knowledgeable. I can’t stress this enough. It helps to buy and try out the product you are trying to promote to get a feel for it and know exactly what it does. Since you didn’t create the product yourself this is always a good way to become an expert. To make a long story short, if your knowledgeable about your products, your sales will definitely increase.
