The following is what you should keep
“front of mind” to create your perfect

Make Mobile Part Of Your Strategy.
An absolute must nowadays, as I’m sure you
would already be aware, mobile marketing is
all the rage. More and more people are
using their phones to purchase, opt in, and
read their daily intake of content. In
fact, it is widely touted mobile use will
be the future in affiliate marketing.
Mobiles and tablets are rapidly replacing
laptops and desktop computers in many
households around the world.
A simple search will tell you that from
2011, mobile affiliate sales have risen to
a massive $76.52 billion dollars in 2017.
Some fear that affiliate marketing will
“max out”, really with the previous figures
it is obvious that mobile affiliate
marketing is just getting started.
Only Market Reputable Products That People
Are Looking For.
One of the big mistakes many people that
are new to affiliate marketing do is to try
and sell anything and everything.
Reality check here. It is crucial that the
product you’re about to present to your
prospective customer, is a product that you
have identified after a bit of market
research that people are buying and is in
your target market.
Remember when selling to your customer, you
have a reputation to uphold, and your
customer will remember a bad product you
sold them, long after the good one, that is
if you get a second chance to sell to them
a second time which is doubtful.
Time & a bit of research effort will let
you learn which companies sell the best
products. If you’re going to sell one on
one or with your blog you need to have a
solid strategy set in place which will
propel your business to meet the needs of
your clients and target market.
You don’t want an unresearched, one-off
sales strategy where you pick a product
blindly and then cross your fingers and
hope it works, it probably won’t.
Don’t Forget About Customer Relations.
When starting out in the big wide world of
affiliate marketing you will likely come
across some terminology that may be foreign
to you, terms like “relationship marketing”
and “influencer marketing”. Now I am not
going to go into the various definitions of
these terms or this would become a very
drawn out article and a simple google
search will explain the terminologies. At
the end of the day they are common
affiliate marketing practices that you will
need to research.
The primary objective for every business
from the very start until the very end your
business is, you must build relationships
with your customers if you have any chance
So, you have found your audience, you know
what they want and need, now the only thing
to do is to find who they look up to. Who
do they share stuff with? Who are they
talking about with others? This is where
the terms like influencers in your
industry, come into play and they will have
the most impact on the people in the
markets you are trying to place your
product in front of.
Engage with the influencer, don’t try and
sell, sell, sell at the beginning just
begin with conversation (if you don’t know
Follow this simple plan and if you do this
consistently, after a short period, you can
approach them with an offer to promote your
product to their followers. This usually
comes at a price, but it is generally
speaking a cheaper form of advertising.
