Got a tip from Marlon Sanders yesterday, went and checked it out and snapped up my copy right away – and I definitely suggest you do the same…

Putting products online can be difficult for newbies, and managing an affiliate program is beyond a lot of those who’ve already got products online. And even if you know how to run an affiliate program, it can still be tricky and tiresome tracking it all, looking after the affiliates at the end of each month, etc.

But now, there’s a truly simple affiliate program that even a newbie can use, because it’s all done by a blog plugin! And it’s an instant commish program like RAP but much, much easier to set up and use. Use it to put your products online, to get affiliates (1-button click to get their link), manage OTO’s – it even tracks all the info for you and displays it in your blog dashboard.

Set it to 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% – the affiliates get their commission right away, so there’s no need for you to deal with any of that… Now you can have an affiliate program right from your first, or next, product. And Bryan is even giving you 3 Master Resell Rights products to use with it so you can get started right away.

Watch the video and you’ll see how easy it is to set products up and get them online.

Super-Affiliate Tip: Set this up on a new blog on a new domain, and load up a few $7 products at 100% commissions, then get as many affiliates to promote it as you can – even use it in ad swaps, etc, giving your swap partner 100% commissions anyway – when they see the money rolling into their PayPal account, you’ll see many of them start promoting your offers too.

And while you don’t make any money on those orders, you also have no additional work – they get paid directly, so there’s no accounting and affiliate payments involved from your end. What you ARE doing is getting them, in exchange for them getting 100% of the profits, to bild you a new list of known buyers, a list you can use in your ongoing affiliate marketing. This could potentially become your lowest-cost, highest-quality source of affiliate leads!

Professional affiliate marketers know that when you are choosing affiliate products and services to promote, you should use extreme care. By not being careful when choosing which affiliate programs to promote, you will be doing a major disservice to your current and potential customers, as well as yourself.

Successful affiliate marketing involves a bit of front-end research… First, you want to look at the product or service. Is it a good product or service that will solve a problem or fulfill a desire that your market has? Is there are return policy? Is it priced to sell and is there added value? As a customer, is this a product or service that you would by for your self?

Will your customers be served? Is there a customer support ticket system or a toll-free number, as well as a support email address that your customers can use? You do not want to ruin your own affiliate mrketing credibility by offering a product or service that will not serve your customers well, or for which your customers will not be supported properly.

Once you are sure your customers will be well served, it is time to think about yourself and your needs. Is the affiliate commission high enough? Look for affiliate programs that pay at least a 30% commission, and preferably ones that pay 50% if possible. Is there the potential for a residual affiliate income? What about commissions from affiliate’s who sign up under you?

Next, read the affiliate agreement, as well as the terms and conditions. Will you be able to promote the products or services in the way that you choose? How often will you be paid and what method is used for payments. Under what circumstances will you not be paid.

Are sales and clicks tracked, as well as affiliate commissions owed and commissions paid? Is there a support forum for affiliates and/or an easy way to contact the affiliate manager? What about promotional materials? Are you provided with banners, sales letters, ads, articles, and free give-a-ways?

Finding out all of this information shouldn’t take more than just a few minutes of your time, and it is time well spent. Many hours and lots of potential affiliate commissions have been lost simply because affiliates don’t take the time to choose their affiliate programs with care. Your affiliate marketing is a BUSINESS – and like all businesses, doing your due diligence is a necessary part of affiliate marketing success!

Why I Love Affiliate Marketing – Part 4
By Jimmy D. Brown of “Affiliatenaire

I’m sure by now you are well aware that there are those who
have reported HUGE amounts of money being made with their
online businesses. What you may not be aware of is the
amount of work involved in generating those “sales” (not
always net profit, mind you … this isn’t “spendable”
income in a lot of cases.)

That brings me to the fourth reason why I love affiliate
marketing…

** You don’t need to manage an entire business **

While it can be quite lucrative, running an entire business
with employees, inventory, partners, vendors, and other
associates can be a time-sucking, frustrating ordeal.

Imagine…

* Processing refunds
* Putting out fires when partners SPAM
* Managing day-to-day operations
* Overseeing projects you’ve outsourced
* Recruting new affiliates
* Training everyone to help you
* Paying taxes
* Taking care of the paper trail
* Doing all of the “stuff” that business owners do.

Didn’t you want to start an internet business to make
more time for important things in life?

Why not make a lot of money WITHOUT making a lot of extra
work for yourself?!

It can be a lot of extra work and stress. BUT, with
affiliate marketing, you don’t need to manage an entire
business! You are simply responsible for promoting your
affiliate link… someone else handles all the rest.

That’s why I love affiliate marketing.

You don’t need to manage an entire business.
