Common Questions heard from Affiliate Marketers and some solid trusted realistic advice to increase your promotion results

By Sandi Hunter Rather then writing an article, this time I decided to share with you some of the common questions I hear from affiliate marketers and the advice I give them. My hope is that other marketers reading this will benefit from the information and you too can start getting better results. Are you ready? Here you go… Q: What’s better Solo Ads or Banner Ads? In general, I would say well written solo ads would perform better then a banner ad. Assuming that you have a really great, captivating, attention grabbing headline and that your copy is benefit laden and makes a fabulous offer. Solo Ads are often single email distribution of ad copy to a member list or a subscriber list. So real human eyeballs should be seeing your ads, if sent from a Safelist, you need to be aware that some people will be viewing your ad to earn ad credits. It doesn’t mean it’s not a good way to advertise it just means that don’t think that everyone who clicks is a buyer. Some WILL buy, and Safelist advertising is effective. BUT….Instead of asking which kind of promotion is better, consider that ALL advertising helps, so you can place some banner ads, AND place some solo ads. The BEST advertising results are often the result of MULTIPLE forms of advertising on various platforms. Smart marketers employ a number of different kinds of advertising to target different markets, niche markets, and target specific demographics. Q: I bought some advertising from a trusted source but I notice the rate at which I am receiving my leads is a little slow should I be concerned? That’s a tough one to answer. My first thought is if you trust this lead source and the leads are being generated slowly that may be a good sign. When ads are placed it takes time for people to respond especially REAL people who are HUMAN and filling out a form. You have to take a good look at your ad copy as well. I see ads all the time that I can virtually guarantee will not produce leads. Why? The ads are poorly written. They have no pop, no sizzle, and are serious sleep inducers. The other side of the spectrum is that the ad is so ridiculous in the claims made that people are clicking OFF the ad or ignoring it, instantly sizing it up as another sketchy pitch. I can also look at an ad and tell you if it will produce sign ups. Why? Because as a copywriter and marketer with close to 25 years in this industry it is plain as the nose on your face what gets people to react. It’s not a secret, it’s the science of human behavior and a result of utilizing proven motivation principles. If you don’t understand the basics of good marketing, marketing that makes and offer to command action, then you need to go back to basics and learn. This topic is far to big for the purpose of this here, so instead you are start doing your homework. A good place to start would be with my company , but I will leave that up to you. If you want to get results from your promotion you must know what to promote, where to promote and how to promote, my team can provide that to you, it’s both valuable and critical to your success as an affiliate marketer. I would also offer you this advice. If you buy ads and get an instant HUGE influx of leads I would be far more concerned about that pattern. The reason is that you may just be getting paid to click leads, or robotic leads, or even just a harvested list of leads that have been bought and sold repeatedly. The leads may not be quality or even real and are mass distributed in bulk to unknowing buyers. The test will be if those "leads" login, respond, click or take some action to indicate they are HUMAN. Real leads DO something more then just click. Q: Does Safelist marketing work? A: Absolutely. For many years, at least a decade now, we ‘ve operated 18 High Traffic Safelists to back that statement up, plus we use several other trusted time-tested safelists ourselves for promotion purposes. The Affiliate marketer doesn’t have a bottomless pit of money to pay for Google Ads, or Facebook ads. Safelist advertising is low cost, offers a a targeted audience, and quite simply, gets results. If you aren’t getting results take a good look at the ads/offers you are running before you blame the advertising source. I covered this above. Q: I hear about the importance of having a list, what exactly does that mean and how do I get one going? A: A list is sometimes refered to as a customer list, or a lead list, or an email marketing list. Whatever you call it it’s your essential bread and butter for your business. The people on the list are subscribers to your mailings and potential buyers of your products and services, be nice to them. Earn their trust, mail content that is valuable and not sent too often. Building your list takes time and is accomplished with optin forms, lead forms, newsletter sign up forms, surveys, and offers. You will need mail software or a service to be able to email your growing list and a number of services exist to help you with this. See the end of this posting for help with mail services and hosting. Ever notice those questionable companies doing a Pre-Launch? Notice the Pre-Launch seems to go on and on and on or never launches at all! Why do you think they are doing that? Three reasons, exposure, LIST BUILDING, sales potential The bigger the list the bigger the results when they DO finally launch. Understand the POWER of having, maintaining your own email marketing list in your own success. Q: I am trying everything and not getting results, what do I do. A: I see marketers so eager to start making money online, they try to do everything at once. What they lack is FOCUS. Yup, it’s that simple. Pick one or two affiliate programs if you are just getting started. Spend some time every day learning about online marketing, but spend 10X more then that on promoting. People new to affiliate marketing often underestimate how much promotion is required to get sign ups and conversions. The affiliate marketing industry itself is partly to blame for this, many tell you it’s so easy, you can get rich in 2, 4, 6 weeks, no work required, blah blah. One ad I just saw promised riches in 12 minutes. It’s ridiculous. Sadly it’s the same old pitch from many of these "just launched" here today gone tommorrow affiliate programs. Pick ONE good one, a program that offers value, has some substance to it and provides you with the tools you need to promote it. You may sign up for an affiliate program and are given a referral link then you are on your own to figure out where to promote. That’s often why so many newbies get frustrated and give up. They see the value of the practice but don’t know what to do to start getting signups, they post here and there inconsistently without rhyme of reason, no systematic approach, get frustrated and give up. That’s why so many frustrated affiliates end up coming to my team of experts at Worldprofit they realize they need our systematic proven approach developed over many years. Q: Where can I learn more about promotion so I can get better results as an affiliate marketer and start getting more sign ups into my programs? A: At Worldprofit we treat affiliate marketing as a business, a business that anyone can do from anywhere in the world.

Does it pass the sniff test? Affiliate Marketers read this to see why you aren’t getting conversions.

"Something stinks" I said. One of our members, let’s call him Bob, asked me to take a look at his advertising campaign for his Affiliate marketing program. He’d spent a lot of money on advertising specifically solo ads, he was getting "sign ups" or leads but none were converting. He’d been at if for some time, watching, waiting for some kind of return. He wasn’t a newbie either, he’d been doing online marketing for a few years. Finally in frustration he came to me for help. I am sharing with you what I found, so you can avoid making the same mistakes and know what to look for when you buy advertising to promote your own affiliate marketing links. First, I took a look at his Solo Ad copy. It was well written, got to the point, punchy, benefit – rich and enticed the reader to click for a Special Free Offer. No problems with his Solo Ad copy whatsoever. Next, I looked at the landing page he was using in his marketing, he had 3 different test versions and was tracking clicks on each. Each landing page (squeeze page) was well written, employed all the essentials of good copy writing, attention getting headlines, call to action, clear benefits, compelling offer, simple sign up / optin form. Then I reviewed his click rate data for each page. He had a significant number of clicks with an interesting pattern. When the landing page was promoted in his Solo Ad, the clicks came in within seconds and minutes and hour of the posting, then stopped completely. No clicks at all after about an hour of the ad posting. Let me share some experience with you, as a company we spend thousands of dollars on advertising, and I can tell you that when we post an ad, especially to a list, we get leads for the next few days, even the next week. The responses don’t abruptly stop within an hour of the posting. The ad may go out in a few minutes, but the recipients don’t check / read their emails at the same time. Next I turned to his list of leads. The leads when viewed as a long list was revealing. There was a suspicious pattern. They had very similar entry data, first initial only and a last name. Then some with a Name that was exactly the same as the email address. Some were entered in all capital letters, while others had the same style of abbreviations. Odd. I’ve been in the affiliate marketing industry for over 25 years, I can tell you one fact about data entry. Numerous people don’t enter data in the very same way, and rarely on a list of 100 leads would you see the exact same or very similar data entry pattern. Here’s the real eye-opener. When I analyzed if any of these "sign ups" had done anything after they entered their name / email to the optin form, I found that NONE of these leads had taken any further action. By action I mean, they didn’t login, they didn’t take the next step to "GET" what they had opted in to, or signed up for. Strange. If you are like me, when you "Sign up" for something you usually take (or are required) to take further action to verify the optin, or click to access the provided services, or login to collect on what you were offered and signed up for. Even if you are not like me, you would think that at least SOME of the leads / sign ups would "do" something, not one did. Why? These leads didn’t pass the sniff test. I broke it to Bob. The sign ups were fake, either generated by a robot, or a software auto click program, or spit out by a randomized database of names / addresses/ spoofed IP addresses. The leads are delivered in large numbers quickly to make the buyer happy. His reason for no conversion? The leads weren’t real people, robots and fake names don’t buy. Finally, I asked Bob, where he had placed the Solo Ads. When he told me the source where he had been posting, the gig was up. He had been using a source that our experience and testing shows is a complete waste of money. Author: Sandi Hunter, President, Co-Founder, Worldprofit Inc. —-> Not yet a World Profit member?

Marketing on YouTube for Affiliate Marketers: What you Need to Know and Do to GROW your Followers

Affiliate marketers have heard the secret to making online sales is to have a list, and to grow that list so you have an ever-increasing list of potential buyers. This is 100% true. Now what about Social Media? Growing your "list" on social media is about growing your followers, your subscribers. Email marketing involves emailing your list of subscribers or borrowing someone else’s list and sending out offers. Social Media marketing involves SPEAKING directly to your subscribers/ followers and building relationships with your viewers that may lead to sales. It all starts with 1 good video on a topic that is of keen interest to many. Let’s talk about YouTube and how Affiliate Marketers can grow your own following / subscribers (and list) to build your sales machine. So the question becomes what are you going to talk about in your videos to get interest, and keep interest? First, decide what your first Video is going to be about, who is your ideal viewer, what do you want to convey and achieve with your video. It’s helpful to find someone who is doing NOW what you want to do. Find someone in your industry with a large following. Watch them, learn, how and what to they say and do, make your own to fit your niche. When getting started, keep your video productions simple, as you get more comfortable and grow you can get more sophisticated later. Think big. If you are going to take the time to plan your videos, record your videos with the goal of generating buzz you need to plan for growth.
