Affiliate Marketing Solution-Cold Hard Selling does NOT WORK!

Affiliate Marketing Solution-Cold Hard Selling does NOT WORK!

You think you know but you have no idea. We hear that line a lot, but it's not coming from celebrities anymore, its from people running online businesses. The Internet always makes thing seem so easy, earning thousands in a few weeks, being your own boss, but it's not A-B-C steps, i's more like the alphabet of the Korean language, very complicated! Okay, I'm not scaring you off, I'm just being realistic. No matter what business you run, things get complicated, even online.

Affiliate Marketing is a popular business now and its going even more. So many people are into it, but only about 10% of them make it really big. Why is that? Many affiliates think that all you need to do is sign up, get the companies links, put them in as many other sites as possible and wait for sales. Now what makes you think that's going to work? If you read an article, like this one for example, and at the end i have a link that send you to page thats screaming BUY ME! BUY ME NOW!, does anyone honestly think that is going to work? But still, it happens all the time.
So when you start being an affiliate, don't make that mistake. Luckily you get to read the Affiliate marketing Solution before you even need it.

The key affiliate marketing solution is pre-selling. Don't shock people with a sudden sales pitch. Ease them into the sale then , make them want to see the sale page. This may not bring as much traffic to your site, but what is it that you want? Traffic or Sales?

So pre-selling is the affiliate marketing solution, simply that. Think of it like a PSP (for the boys) or a Channel bag (for the ladies), you wont buy it because someone threw it on your face, but if it's just sitting there in the window, slowing easing you in, then that's when your significant other is going to be worrying about the credit card bill.

Here's to your success
