My Tips and Advice For Affiliates Programs Newbies

Affiliate program is the starting place for a big majority of home entrepreneurs and beginners in Internet Marketing, because of the small amount of work involved. There is some elements that you must absolutely look for before you start promoting an affiliate product...


Tip #1. Promote a unique product  to get better results.

Promoting a product which is already being sold by hundreds or affiliates will not give you the same results as if you have a unique proposition. A different product that only some affiliates distribute. That  kind of program is a little bit difficult to find because it is not in the interest of the merchant to do so in the short term.

Tip #2. Powerful and effective affiliates tools.

When you are ready to promote, you may be lost if you are new to affiliates marketing. Actually, most of the beginners take months to make their first sale, because the merchant doesn't help them in their hard work. So be sure to find a powerful and clear affiliates resource section. That will skyrocket your chances of success. Also, a good communication with the merchant is hard to find, but it is a must.
Try to find these resources, or some of them.

Tip #3. Example of effective resources:

* Brandable ebooks to give away or sell at a little price with your own affiliate ID links to generate leads... and sales.

* Sales letters provided.

* Templates of the emails to send to your list(s), pre-writen email or even better.

*  Free promotional tips provided, to make money without spending thousands in the beginning (a must for beginners)

*  Advices and tips for paid promotional techniques (don't loose all your money in something that don't bring results).

* Redirect links through your own website. For example: www.yoursite.com/theaffiliatesite/

* Banners

Tip #4. Good Tracking software.

It is a very important part. You must be able to monitor almost everything in your resources section:
you must be able to track your sales, how many visitors came to your site and to the merchant site, by which page they enter to the merchant site(here is the importance of the redirect links).
You must be able to view your payment history, and also how many people signed up underneath you if it is a two tiers affiliate program.

Tip #5. Cookies plus IP addresses.

Today, it is a common practice by Internet users to clear their cookies daily or weekly. So if you spend money on PPC or any other paid advertising to get a customer, you do not want to see another affiliate get the commission you should have received. So try to choose an affiliate program with a tracking software which take also the IP address of your future customer. By the way, recurring commissions are a must.

Last but not least, try to find associate programs with generous compensation plan, and give a preference to the two tiers affiliates programs because you will be paid on two levels. Good promotion, and enjoy your affiliate life.

Getting Paid By the Casinos to Play

Here are some simple steps on how to get the freebies casinos offer their players.

The forward approach will work well in this situation. This is where you call the casinos and ask them what they will offer you to come to their casino to do some gambling. In most cases the casinos may offer you some free meals and maybe even a show. If you call and tell them you are bringing a group of people to their casinos they may even go as far as to give you a suite for yourself and give a break on the other rooms for your trip.

A variation of the forward approach is to call a casino and get them to give you a comp then call all the other casinos and see if they will match or beat the other casinos offer. If you can convince them you are worth them bringing you to their casino they may just try to outbid the previous casino, and if they really want you they may pick you up from your home or the airport depending on where you live in a limo and convince them you are a high roller in the casinos a…

 Affiliates are getting cleverer by the day. So these days, affiliates know the difference between the different types of traffic they can get paid for. There are a lot of definitions though – CPM, CPC, CPA, CPL, CPD and many more.
