So as discussed my last two posts covering ‘Common Mistakes to Avoid #1 and #2 it’s important to find products that serve a topic, sport, issue that you are already passionate about and to not get carried away by joining dozens of Affiliate Programs in hopes of making a few bucks from each. You’re FAR better off researching the needs and questions that focus around your passion and then finding one or even two affiliate programs that you think address the issues and that offer you more than just the product to sell. You should make at least 40% commission, plus have a landing (sales) page provided, and additional marketing tools and training.
Mistake number 3: Not buying the product or using the service.
As an affiliate, your main purpose is to effectively and convincingly promote a product or service and to find customers. For you to fulfill your part of the deal, you must be able to relay to the customers what benefits they will receive from the affiliate product or service you are sharing. It is pretty danged difficult for you to do this when you haven’t actually tried the product out. So, while you may like what the Affiliate Programs’ sales page says and be able to copy blips from it you are still not going to be able to share person experiences. It’s those “hey I was having this problem and when I actually started using this item, program, resource, etc….And danged if it didn’t fix the issue AND this other one I was having”! If you really want to see sales for your Affiliate Program you REALLY NEED TO GO HANDS ON.
Try the product or service personally first before you sign up as an affiliate to see if it is really delivering what it promises. If you have done so, then you are one of the credible and living testaments aware of its advantages and disadvantages. Your customers will feel the sincerity and truthfulness in you and this will trigger them to try them out for themselves.
Lets wrap it short series up. While there are lots of mistakes that you can make I actually chose these three, well because I have made them… I have walked out each one of these Fatal Errors and spend a stupid amount of time and energy chasing my own tail. I have associated my name with products both digital and tangible that didn’t deliver what they promised. And I vowed not to repeat those mistake again.
Like you my time and energy and MONEY are far, far to precious to waste when there is a smarter way of doing things. Ultimately I hope my blog helps save you from frustration and humiliation and maybe just maybe helps you reach your goal, whatever that may be.
I know I have said this before BUT one of the few products I’ve found that gives you nearly 100% on commissions, continual income potential, additional marketing tools and ideas, training and a killer landing page that sells it’s self is Enviralizer! Check it out. No obligation. Lets earn a living together.
May the Lord bless you and your house hold.
