Affiliate programs are a great way to earn a little extra money each month working the Internet. While some people earn up to $1,000 or more per month, most who work affiliate programs seriously land $200 to $700.
Here’s a brief plan for making money with these programs:
- Put a two or three line ad about the program in the signature file of all your emails (that bit of info that goes after your note). “Sig” files are a powerful way to include a marketing message along with your personal notes–probably the most effective marketing tool of all.
- Get your own web site. It’s hard to establish your own identity and customer trust if you are sending people to a generic site provided by the program.
- Place free ads on sites where other people are pushing affiliate programs. These are usually the same folks who buy. See http://MyAdBlaster.com for help placing ads.
- Place paid ads in ezines and on AOL (where a massive 55 million visitors roam). Learn how to write effective affiliate program ads and where to place them at Keegan Michaels’ http://AffiliateTeacher.com
