How to Boost your Performance in Affiliate Marketing?

By: Lina Stakauskaite


If you are like most people, you get to a point in your affiliate business where you need to push more for whatever reason be it more money, prestige, popularity or the need to prove something. That's great! The worst thing that can happen to an affiliate marketer is to become blase and bored with his career. Here are some ideas to get the creative and marketing juices flowing.

Use an Email Tracking Software

This type of software makes your email marketing efforts more successful. In short, it lets you know if your email has been opened or whether it is simply being thrown in the virtual thrash without being read. If you find that all your emails are being ignored by a specific person, take a hint - they're simply not that into you or what you're offering. As such, you should go ahead and delete them from your list and save yourself the hassle of being tagged a spammer. Unsolicited email can easily backfire so it's best to closely supervise it while building an email list of legitimate subscribers and followers.

Start Offering Freebies

Freebies don't have to be tangible items. You can offer perks like free expert tips, a short report or even an eBook on a subject that interest your target market. You can also offer a free product or service for the Xth person who signs up to be put on your list. There are many great ideas to encourage engagement and inspire people to give you their information. Always think out of the box and you'll eventually find creative ways to reach your target and inspire them to action.

Avoid Flashing Ads and Banners

The quickest way to get a person to leave your website is to have something flashing on the screen. Internet users have been warned time and again about pop-up ads and this has automatically flowed into flashing "whatchamacallits." They're annoying and very distracting. So, be careful about the type of flashing ads and banners you use. Make the messages memorable and professional to avoid irritating the viewer.

Improve Your Content

If you can't write, hire someone. There are various websites that allow you to use their content for free as long as you acknowledge their site in return. You can also start a blog as an affiliate marketer and turn your own life into an Internet reality show. There are many ways to get visitors to come back to your site and turn it into a regular habit. If you hit a wall, why not consult with an experienced copywriter? They can help you use captivating words and phrases and really inspire and motivate readers to action.

Finally, use whatever help the affiliate program is offering. They should be willing to give you interactive banners, PLR articles (you can rewrite) and product specifications. They're there to help you help them and typically do so without charging you. Of course, be discerning about copying text verbatim. After all, many affiliates take the lazy route and simply copy whatever content is given to them. They don't change the content or improve up it. As such, they're content is often penalized by search engines and ignored by readers because they are tired of seeing the "same old content everywhere." Always use fresh and original content that demonstrates your product knowledge, highlights how it will help them. This alone will encourage your target audience to trust and buy from you.
