Work Online from Home
Let’s Begin With – Why work online from home?
Well, the biggest reason is that there are some 3 billion people who are searching for information and looking for solutions to problems online. Working online from home and getting in front of some of these people would be a smart business to be involved with.
So how can we do that?
With affiliate marketing, there are many ways in which you can do this. Most of the techniques and tactics can be learned easily at Wealthy Affiliates, and there is no need to go anywhere as they are available online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and you can learn all you need to know. (I will talk more about them soon).
In the meantime let’s now look at the biggest fear/problem people have to work online, and that is SELLING…
How to Sell?
Expert salespeople and successful marketers know and understand the importance of selling the problem first, which is why they always start off by describing the problems that their product or service is the answer to.
By doing so they ensure that they have a ‘target’ audience for the solution they are proposing. Then once they have identified potential customers they then proceed to unearth the potential clients ‘hot buttons’ and this is usually achieved by asking questions or in the case of online marketing, presenting the proposal in a helpful and customer focused way.
But It Doesn’t Always Happen
Unfortunately, most salespeople and marketers jump right into selling the features and benefits of their product, or service without taking the time to understand if the prospect even has a need for the solution they are presenting.
So to sell something successfully, you should always “sell the problem BEFORE you sell the solution!”
So creating an affiliate website is not about selling. Instead, it’s about giving your readers accurate information and presenting real solutions to problems.
How to Provide Information?
One way to present information is through the use of product recommendations that actually provides a real solution to a real problem.
When you are recommending products this way, there are some things to remember in how to make this type of product promotion work to your advantage.
Do not be afraid to mention things that you do not like about a given product or service. Rather than lose points, this will make your recommendation more believable and will tend to increase your credibility. If your visitors are really interested in what you are offering, they will be more than happy to learn what is good and what is not so good about the product and how it will benefit them.
Most top selling marketers know that this is one of the most effective ways in promoting products because if the customers or visitors trust you enough, then they will also trust your recommendations.
Another thing to remember is to avoid hype at all costs. It is better to sound low key and confident than to scream out and seek attention. Remember; prospects are not stupid. They are actually turning to the internet more and more and are asking experts and many already know the things that you know.
Buyer resistance diminishes in direct proportion to trust. If your visitors feel and believe that you are an expert in your niche and are trustworthy, they are more inclined to make a purchase through you.
Also, before you recommend a product, you should at the very least have given it a try and have tested the products support service. Do not run the risk of promoting junk merchandise and services. Just remember that it takes a long time to build credibility and trust among your visitors, and this can all be destroyed by one small mistake on your part.
There are 3 Things you Need to do to be Successful Online:
1. Use unique pages to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all your promotions together. It is best to have a site focusing on each and every product and nothing more. Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding of what the product can do and it always good to read about experiences from users who have already tried the product.
You should write articles highlighting the uses of the product and make the pages attractive and include a call to action. Each headline should attract the readers to read the content.
2. Offer free reports to your readers.Try to create autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box.
Only two things can happen when they read your web page. A sale or the prospect leaving never to return again. By following up with useful information, you will remind them about the solution to a problem they thought they had.
Be sure that the content is directed toward specific reasons to re-look at the product. Do not make it a sales pitch. Focus on important points like how the product can make life easier and more enjoyable.
3. Make sure your traffic is targeted If the person who visited your website has no interest in what you are offering, they will move on and never come back. So begin with writing articles and posts focusing on your target customers and that way you will only get initial interest from people who want what you are promoting.
Always remember that on average only 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or services. If you can generate as much as 1,000 targeted hits for your website in a day, that means you can make 10 sales, based on that average statistic.
In affiliate marketing, you should make it possible for people to contact you or, at least, be able to leave a comment and you such always have an ‘about me‘ page, so they know you are real.
