Affiliate Revenue #3 | Who To Invite To The Party

Maybe you’re an owner of one of those online businesses and you have ventured into the world of affiliate marketing in an effort to grow affiliate revenue. You’ve visited the testimonial websites and have seen the claims of $200,000 annually from affiliate revenue and you’re interested in making some of that money for yourself.

So maybe you’ve launched an all out search for affiliate programs and have signed up for several hoping that a full compliment of affiliates in one portal will make you a rich entrepreneur. The bad news is things aren’t working out the way you thought they would. The money isn’t coming in by the wheelbarrow full and you are becoming discouraged.

The problem might be that you are looking at affiliate revenue as one might if they were building a department store. You have determined that multiple affiliate programs can only enhance your ability to gain income. In essence the more diversified you are the great chance you have to make money. The problem that is most closely linked to presenting multiple affiliates is that you essentially cannot do any of them justice. There is just too much to concentrate on and no easy way to get your online visitors to connect with them.

You might do well to create a website with its own unique domain name for the purpose of promoting a single affiliate. You can then exercise very specific marketing strategies to draw attention to a site dedicated to a single affiliate.

What this strategy does is provide the opportunity to effectively reach a core group of motivated individuals who may be more inclined to view a single, well-developed website featuring a product or service they need.

Sometimes websites can be so cluttered with affiliate links and other peripheral information that it is hard for the customer to figure out what to click or even come up with a good reason to do so.

If you have multiple affiliates, and none of them are doing very well, you might choose one or two that you have the greatest interest in (personal or financial) and then concentrate on developing sites specifically for these affiliates. Then make sure you are getting the word out to potential customers. You may find a more concentrated effort in affiliate marketing for affiliate revenue may go much further than you imagined at bringing financial rewards as payment for your effort.

Whether it’s web design or the number of affiliate revenue sites you partner with it just makes sense to streamline and become an expert in the areas you do intend to serve. You’re clients will be more satisfied and you will be better rewarded financially if you do.

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…

2 Tier Affiliate Programs Explained

 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.
