eCommerce Store Marketing through Affiliates
Action plan for Running Affiliate Marketing Programs
Whether you are an advertiser or a site owner, signing up for an affiliate program is the first step. If you are an advertiser, deciding which model you will use is important. To do this you have to understand your company, your product, and your customers. Is your product something that basically sells itself, or is it something (such as university courses) that must be tailored to each customer? Many different programs exist to help you grow your business, so time should be devoted to researching them and finding the own that best fits your needs. After that, it's just a matter of waiting for the leads and sales to start coming in.
Tips and Tactics for Improving Affiliate Marketing Yield
- Go with NextBee's Affiliate Solution and get dramatically improved returns
- Site owners should find 3-4 quality merchants (from the same niche) to support, rather than just one. This way your readers have a choice between competitors and you can increase your chances of making a sale.
- Successful affiliate marketing is more than just putting up banners. Learning other ways to advertise, such as blogging, and email marketing, can help increase sales and revenue.
- Many advertisers in highly competitive industries go so far as to offer 100% commissions to their publishers. While this is certainly not winning business strategy overall, if affiliate marketing is only one part of an overall strategy, then basically allowing affiliates to reap the total rewards of each sale may not make economic sense, but among the community of affiliates, your company will become well known and popular.
