This is a guest post by Roderick Coleman from QueryAds.com – In this post he tells us 3 basic elements of affiliate marketing around which you need to practice your skills for coming out as successful affiliate marker.
One of the biggest problems with affiliate marketing is it’s really tough to break into from a standing start. It’s not simply as easy as sticking up a few review sites, with well-placed affiliate links, though when I first started, that’s what I was lead to believe.
You need a list, an opinion and a product to suggest, and you need to be selective. It’s not simply a case of putting up as many things in one niche as you can find – instead it takes a lot of solid work to become trusted, to be able to offer opinions that people want to hear, and most importantly of all, how and when to promote to people.
You’ll find that this results in less disappointed customers, and will help you improve the accuracy of the reviews you’re giving and standing by.
