That’s crazy, right? So, what does this mean for you as an affiliate marketer? Well, it means that now is the perfect time to jump on the bandwagon and start making some serious money.
The part I like most about affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to worry about all the annoying stuff like fulfilling orders, managing inventory, or dealing with customer support. All you have to do is focus on driving traffic, generating leads, and promoting hot, high-converting products. Sure, it’s not a walk in the park, but it’s definitely easier than some other online marketing models.
Now, let’s dive into 7 affiliate marketing tactics that will help you maximize your profit:
Master Link Magic
You know those messy affiliate links full of random numbers and characters? They can be such a pain. But fear not! You can create a master link using a tool like Pretty Links. That way, if products get discontinued or links change, just edit the master link, and boom! All your links will be updated automatically at once.
No more losing sales or playing detective with broken links.
Word of caution though, DO NOT use these links for Amazon product links!
Landing Page Love
By now, we all know that building an email list is crucial for an affiliate marketer. When you have an email list, you can market to warm traffic and build relationships with your subscribers.
Create a master link pointing to your landing page and use it for all your promotions. This way, you build your list and boost those sales in the long run.
If you’re into info products promoting info products on platforms like ClickBank or WarriorPlus, look for those with a funnel—bump offers, upsells, down sells, you name it. If the upsell or bump offer add value to the front end purchase, it will encourage customers to buy more and increase your commissions. Just be careful not to promote funnels that are too deep. Too many upsells can annoy and scare customers away fast.
Don’t shy away from promoting higher-priced items. While lower-priced stuff might convert better, those big-ticket items can bring in some serious dough. Mix it up and have a few high-ticket items in your repertoire for those sweet, sweet paydays.
Spy on Your Competition
Your competitors (especially those who’ve been around for a while) know a thing or two. Check out what they’re promoting, make a list, and jump on the bandwagon. If it’s working for them, why reinvent the wheel, right? After all, they must be popular for a reason.
If you want to reach a wider audience, consider collaborating with influencers on platforms like Instagram or TikTok. Just make sure you know your numbers and negotiate a reasonable fee for them to post your affiliate link. Use a link tracking tool like ClickMagick to see how well the promotion is converting.
Offer a killer bonus for those who buy through your link. It’s a proven tactic, especially for info products. People love getting a good deal? This strategy has been proven to work, especially when promoting info products. Just make sure to check with the vendor if they allow affiliates to use bonuses. Some might not be cool with you throwing in extra goodies.
There you go…
