Six Sales Secrets
1. All you need is to get from zero to one. You just have to get one sale to be approved going forward. To get that first sale, you need at least one product to promote of course, and in order to grab that beautiful affiliate link you need at least one product creator to share his or her sauce with you. So where do you find these lesser spotted product owners?
2. The second secret follows on from the first. Befriend as many marketers as you can on social media or by email or at marketing events. You’ll be surprised at how approachable some of the big name marketers are if you use the right approach. The right approach for one marketer might be retweeting some of his tweets. For another it might be saying something intelligent and complimentary to them by email. Some marketers of course, will never reply to your email or private messages so maybe you could catch them by the bar at a marketing event? Offer to buy them a drink or a coffee, mention one of their programs that you bought.
3. Once you have your virtual mitts on your first affiliate link, build a review website or blog on WordPress, for example, to get some organic traffic to the product. You can also use social media and YouTube as well.
4. After you have made your first sale, visit sites like Muncheye to see what products are launching and find out the best converting products which are making affiliates money right now.
5. Send a truck load of traffic to your link using ad swaps, solo ads and paid traffic like Facebook ads.
6. Keep testing to see which offers and traffic sources are converting into commissions for you, then rinse and repeat.
Pretty easy right? So there you have it. My six secrets to winning the affiliate game and winning it big.
