How to Increase Your Online Traffic and Sales Quickly and Easily - 100% Guaranteed

Your success in affiliate marketing comes down to good marketing practices. There are certain strategies, or marketing tips that have worked in the past and continue to work today. By using these three marketing tips, you can increase traffic to your websites and sales.

Tip Number 1: It's best to promote each product separately on a unique web page. Avoid placing several products on one website to save money on web hosting.

Include product reviews on your website. You will need to be familiar with your product, so that customers can feel your genuineness and sincerity. Further, testimonials from people who have tried the product is a great marketing tool. You will need to get permission to use their names and photos on your website.

You may also want to write articles that specifically highlights the product and place the articles on a separate page in the website. The articles should be informative and attractive, and draw the customer to read more, and take action

Tip Number 2: Offer free reports. Place them strategically on the website, so that they can be seen. Include a section for customers to opt-in, and include their personal information into a sign up box.

You can then use an autoresponder to follow-up with each client. Studies show that a sale is made after the seventh contact with a potential customer. The follow-up emails should not be a sales pitch, but will entice the customer to want the product. The emails should explain how the product can make life easier and fun, and they would be missing something if they do not purchase the product or service. Try not to use the word, "free" in your emails. Some spam controls will reject emails with the word, "free" inserted.

Tip Number 3: Attract traffic that is targeted to your product or service. One way of doing this, is by writing articles for ezine directories and newsletters. You can submit your articles to specific publications that focus on your particular target customer, and grab their attention and interest. If you prefer, and do not want to write or, you just want to get more done faster, you can hire a writer to write articles for you. Ask for samples. Give them topics to write about, and keywords to focus on, for each article. If you are writing the article, try to write a minimum of two articles per week, about 300-600 words in length. If you get an average of 20 visitors per day from each article and you submit 2 articles per week, that's 160 visitors per day after 30 days. After the second month, you'll have 320 visitors per day. After the third month, you'll have 640 per day and so on... Remember, statistically, about 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or get your services. So, the more visitors, the more potential for making a sale.

Try using these three tips in your affiliate marketing efforts. Put an action plan into place and begin. These tips are not difficult to do. They will take your business to the next level and lead to increased profits.
