So you’re looking for simple affiliate secrets, right? To make it clear, you’re looking for very effective yet easy tricks no one talks about! Don’t worry I’m not being sarcastic. Not completely. I understand what you’re looking for but I’ll be very straightforward with you, there are no secrets in affiliate marketing. This myth is a marketing technique. But I’m still going to give you 4 simple affiliate “secrets”. If I call them “secrets”, it’s just because they are truths that all the marketers wanting to sell you “magical affiliate marketing systems” probably don’t want you to know.
So, here are the 4 simple affiliate secrets I’d like to share with you today.
1) Build your list right now.
This is how the affiliate marketing millionaires earn money. They build huge lists of faithful subscribers and communicate with them, give them great advices and tools and eventually sell them products. Don’t wait. Just set up an account with AWeber and follow the steps. With a list of potential buyers you’ll be able to build a relationship with your list and promote products to these people. It’s a very simple scheme and a very profitable one. Find something of high value to give away as an incentive and collect your subscribers’ email addresses.
Don’t stay out of it. Use social networking to connect with potential buyers in your niche in order to know them better. Play by the rules, don’t spam. Interact “for real”. Don’t try to sell all the time. Ask questions, be fair, link to websites other than yours sometimes. Get involved.
Or at least be ready to fail. Of course it’s frightening and you don’t want to waste money or time but there’s a great chance you’ll fail. But you need to keep an open mind and learn from everything that might happen to your business. The great businessmen you admire failed. All of them. They rebuilt differently, kept moving forward. That’s what you have to do. Many people will fail and will just conclude that affiliate marketing doesn’t work and will give up. Do the opposite. Learn, try again, try differently, you’ll succeed. Among the simple affiliate secrets I give you, that one might seem the less important but it’s not. Your mindset determines your success.
4) Work your butt off.
You think I’m kidding you? I’m not. If there’s one thing the big guys in the affiliate marketing industry rarely say, it’s this! They work their butt off. They optimize their time. They stop doing what doesn’t work, they do twice of what brings results. Be committed to this business. Treat it as such.
It’s only once you understand that there’s nothing magical about affiliate marketing success that you can grasp the value of the simple affiliate secrets I just gave you. Some of you will forget about this article and keep looking for other affiliate marketing “secrets” until they understand that it’s all so much simple. People tend to overcomplicate this business I tell you.
