Top 7 Keys to Success in an Internet Home Business

Like any business, an affiliate business needs to be nurtured in order for it to be successful. You can't just sit back and hope that it is going to take care of itself, and that the single action of having an affiliate website and submitting it to search engines to allow potential customers to find it is going to do the trick. Here are 7 great tips to increase your affiliate commissions.

  1. Participate in chat rooms related to the product
    you're reselling. Start a conversation with a person
    without trying to sell to them. Later on, while you
    are chatting, mention the product you're reselling.

  2. Create a free ebook with the advertisement and
    link of your affiliate web site. The subject of the free
    ebook should draw your target audience to down-
    load it. Also submit it to some ebook directories.

  3. Start your own affiliate program directory. Join
    a large number of affiliate programs and list them all
    in a directory format on your web site. Then just
    advertise your free affiliate program directory.

  4. Write your own affiliate program ads. If all the
    other affiliates use the same ads you do, that does
    not give you an edge over your competition. Use
    a different ad to give yourself an advantage over
    all the other affiliates.

  5. Use a personal endorsement ad. Only use one if
    you've actually bought the product or service for the
    affiliate program. Tell people what kind of benefits
    and results you've received using the product.

  6. Advertise the product you're reselling in your
    signature file. Use an attention getting headline and
    a good reason for them to visit your affiliate site.
    Make sure your sig file doesn't go over 5 lines.

  7. Participate on web discussion boards. Post your
    comments, answer other people's questions, and
    ask your own questions. Include your affiliate text
    link under each message you post.
