Product creators, aka vendors, need affiliates to promote their products, especially during a big launch. And because they depend on the affiliates to promote their products, they’ll often offer prizes during their big launch to encourage promotion. Mind you, these prizes are on top of the commissions that the affiliate earns every time they make a sale. More often than not, it’s good to be an affiliate, especially if you’ve got a loyal list.
Affiliate marketing is a huge portion of the Internet Marketing space. Not only does the affiliate get to support a launch in hopes of winning a big prize and sweet commissions, but the amount of work that it takes to be an affiliate, as opposed to the vendor, is often perceived as easier. This attracts a lot of people who are just looking to make some easy money to pay the bills to the affiliate side of Internet Marketing.
The reality is that it’s a lot harder to be a successful affiliate than most people realize — at least until they start their first couple of campaigns. Then they realize that there’s a lot of competition for those prizes, and marketers will more responsive and loyal lists will consistently score the top spots. It’s a surprisingly tough job in spite of the fact that you work from home in your pajamas.
Those who are seeking to become affiliates will need to take each promotion as seriously as if it is their own product launch. Affiliates will need to employ a variety of strategies, especially unique bonuses, to encourage their customer base to purchase the vendor’s product through their affiliate link.
