Affiliate Marketing – How To Easily Make Money Online With Affiliate Marketing

If you are looking for an easy way to start making money
online then affiliate marketing is by far the easiest.

Simply stated, affiliate marketing is where you earn
commissions on sales of other peoples products.

Although there is way more to making money with affiliate
marketing, it is a great way for you to learn the ropes
and make some money while doing so.

One important detail you want to do when offering other
products, is to make sure that you are sending the
traffic to your own opt in page first instead of sending
the visitors directly to the affiliate website.

Sending your traffic directly to the vendors site will
be a waste of your marketing efforts and will not produce
the type of income you are looking for.

Instead, send the visitors to a small web page where you
offer them a free report on the topic of your niche. Make
sure to have a strong headline and three or four bullet
points that outline what the freebie will give them.

You will also want to use a small opt in box to collect
the name and email addresses of your visitors. Once they
download your free report, you can direct them to the
affiliate website.

By using this technique along with affiliate marketing you
are building the all important opt in list and can follow
up with your prospects with other valuable information and
products.

Offer your new subscribers a variety of different affiliate
products and useful content to really make your affiliate
marketing efforts more lucrative.

Connor Logistics – A Case for Direct Marketing on a Multi-National Scale

The Problem
Connor Logistics is a film industry logistics firm with over 45 years in business and operations in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Connor’s sales for logistics relied solely on Account Manager sales efforts, limiting the firm to the size and time of their sales staff. With the recent business climate changes, Connor’s yearly sales dropped by 15%, a total of $35 Million. The firm’s marketing team was only focused on creating marketing collateral for the Account Management staff with little efforts in customer acquisition marketing other than sponsoring a few industry events every year.

The Solution
Marketing Director for Connor and their CEO planned customer acquisition campaigns by targeting 250 film studios located in 4 countries. These firms held a potential revenue stream of $40 million for Connor Logistics. The acquisition campaign involved a robust variable-data direct marketing campaign that included customized marketing materials for each studio, with specific messaging that was relevant to the individual firms. Connor sent out postcards and brochure materials to key executives in every film studio, along with personalized calendars for secretarial staff. The investment in this marketing material was not cheap, Connor spent over 4 months generating the materials and nearly $2.5 Million to produce and mail it.

The Results
Connor’s Account Managers would follow up after ever marketing piece was mailed with a phone call to schedule an onsite visit with every studio. Over a period two years, 185 of the original 250 targeted studios had signed contracts with Connor Logistics. This produced a net increase in sales of $37 Million. 

Connor’s results are a clear example of the potential of personalized marketing campaigns. Studies show that personalized direct mail pieces produced using variable-data equipment raise response rates by nearly 55% over non-personalized materials.

Using Postcards As A Marketing Tool To Get More New Customers

Getting new prospects and customers into your place of business isn’t easy to do. You have to worry about all kinds of things before you can turn your lead into a customer. You have to worry about price, if they have spending power, if they’re just tire kickers, or if they’re people who needs a few simple questions answered before they buy something.

So you always have to be on the lookout for people like these, they will waste your time, cause you to do more talking than necessary, and will leave you without purchasing anything. If this has happened to you before, then I know how you feel. People have done this to me time and time again – but I now know how to identify those who will waste your time.

Luckily, you probably won’t experience any of this in your business. To make more money, the main thing that you should be concerned about is marketing. Marketing is the one key element that will either make or break your business. You need to be on your marketing grind day after day after day. Don’t let up. At the end of the day, you want to become 1st place – and this is something that a strong marketing plan will give you.

If you’re not aware of all the different kinds of marketing techniques available to you, then I would like to introduce you to some of them. Here’s the first kind of marketing technique that you should be using in your business.

1) Posters

These kind of posters should serve as graphical displays of what you can expect to see. I know of one barber shop owner, he has 30 haircut displays on the wall of his business, and he just asks all of these customers which style they want. I personally go for style number 15 – but that’s just me. (Lol…)

But you can use posters in your business also. Have a list of testimonials on the poster along with their name and picture detailing the kind of successful service that you have done for them.

Of if you’re a cosmetologist, you can follow the technique above regarding barbershops.

There’s a Chinese restaurant in my are who uses a black and white post detailing their new selections of Japanese dishes. I’m glad they made a sign of it, because I love their Japanese dishes, and I would have never used it if I never saw the poster on the wall.

As I mentioned that the poster wasn’t fancy at all. All it was a few dishes and their prices – right in front of the door. So you can’t miss it.

So what are some of the ways that you can use posters in your business? It doesn’t have to be basic like the Chinese restaurant mentioned above, it just has to get the message across in a simple matter. So start using this strategy today so that you can earn more sales and profits in your business today.

Good luck with using these tactics to have the most success as possible in your business.
