Tool #1: Your Own Website
Having your own credible and professional looking website is an important tool if you want to be successful in affiliate marketing. Make sure your website is user friendly. One important thing to remember is that the majority of web users are online looking for information. Not necessarily to buy something. Therefore, your site should act as a sort of information portal for whatever product(s) you are promoting. Make sure you have a ton of very helpful, original and relevant content.
Once people see that you are providing them with good useful information they will begin to trust you and your recommendations. Once the trust has been built, they will not mind spending their money on the products you are promoting.
Tool #2: Incentives
You need incentives to encourage people to visit your site and join your mailing list. You can offer software, free reports, or any other freebies that will be helpful to your prospects. Once you get someone on your mailing list you will be able to market to them over and over again.
Tool #3: Traffic
Hey, no matter how great your website is it is useless if no one knows about it. Traffic is a very important part of any internet business. You want to do everything you can to get traffic to your site. One of the best ways to start driving highly targeted traffic to your site is by writing articles and submitting them to the article directories. I submit each article I write to at least 5 or 6 of the top ranked directories. I have had articles show up on the first page of google in one day.
Here are a few of the directories I submit to. Ezinearticles (the best), articledashboard, ehow and articlesbase. All of these sites are loved by google so your articles will be picked up pretty quick. Just make sure your articles are informative and the traffic will start to flow in.
