5 Common Types of Publisher

Posted by site_master on July 21, 2016  /   Posted in Affiliate Marketing, Blog, Marketing, Uncategorized
Are you a merchant looking for affiliates or publishers to market your product or service? What are your requirements and how do you choose them?Though it is easy to find affiliates these days with the Internet’s help, it is still wise to pick the best partners that can help you tap more potential customers and promote your business legally. Not all affiliates can market your product in the same way as the others, too, so it helps if you assess each type and figure out those who can help you reach your business goal. Below are the five most common types of publisher:
  1. PPC Partners- These are the ones who can spend their own bucks in driving traffic to your site via a pay per click (PPC) engine. Though they can be a wise choice as partners, their strategies can also be subject to abuse due to the increase of bot traffic or incentivized human traffic. Thus, make sure you screen your affiliates well, design a system that can block unlawful PPC practices, and work only with legitimate affiliates who can drive quality traffic to your site.
  2. Social Media Partners- These partners are very flexible and adept in using various online networking platforms. They know the right strategies to use, in particular, how to create social media accounts and provide ‘likes,’ ‘tweets,’ ‘retweets,’ ‘good reviews,’ and ‘video content’ among others.
  3. Coupon-focused Partners- They attract buyers with great deals—vouchers and discount coupons. They may post an ad or send e-mails to target clients, often savvy online buyers.
  4. Content-based Partner Sites- Blogs are the best example of this type. As we all know it, bloggers have a fair share in generating traffic as they can create targeted contents. Blogs that talk about your product (using a good set of keywords) will surely drive traffic to your site.
  5. Shopping Comparison Sites- Just like a huge one-stop shopping mall, these types of affiliate collect various types of products and put them on a single web site. They make use of marketer data feeds in posting the items. They display results based on user’s search and link each item directly to its respective merchant’s web site.

Clues to Finding the Right Business Partners

Affiliate Management Agency: Clues to Finding the Right PartnersDoing business online brings a lot of good things and unexpected possibilities. This is true especially to those who can see their potentials and who are eager to succeed in their ventures. Does “affiliate marketing” ring a bell? Well, this online scheme expands a business’ reach and offers countless rewards. It has been going around for quite some time yet many people still don’t know how this marketing scheme works.Are you an existing online business owner who still wants to earn extra money as an affiliate marketer? You’d better think about your plans first. Do your research and learn expert tips before you join the current craze. For Affiliates OnlyThere’s nothing wrong if you want to market other people’s services or sell their products—as long as it does not hurt your own business.How will you know if affiliate marketing is right for the kind of business you own or operate? Go through the following hints:
  • You partner with a trusted brand. With almost any business offering an affiliate program, it is wise to team up with a company or person who has a good reputation. So make sure you market the ones you know and trust.
  • You do not market a business that is (or somewhat) similar with what you offer. This sounds awkward but it happens. If you are a blogger who earns a living out of freelance writing, you should not promote other writer’s services. This could hurt your main source of income. Further, this may lead people to think that you are not loyal about your profession. In this case, you may opt to recommend certain books displayed on Amazon.
  • You do not promote rivals or contrasting products at the same time. Does your site contain two or more banners depicting products from industry rivals or products from companies with entirely opposing philosophies? This isn’t a good idea and a clear violation of agreement. You don’t want this to happen, do you? So be careful and choose the right product to promote.
Doing business online exposes you to problems and frauds. Hence, it is wise if you think things through before you join any program. In the end, good choices can lead you to safe activities online.Let a professional affiliate program management agency help you and your merchant with your affiliate program needs!

Here Are Blunders You Must Avoid In Affiliate Marketing

Posted by site_master on July 08, 2016  /   Posted in Affiliate Marketing, Blog, Marketing, Uncategorized
Using affiliate marketing techniques for your business sounds great. It saves you lots of money. Yet if you lack experience and training in it and are trying the techniques one after another, you may hurt your venture.While marketing is a trial-and-error stuff, the Internet worsens the mistake even more. Commit one marketing error and your online presence suffers.What to AvoidEach merchant began as a novice and many failed the first time they used affiliate marketing. To protect you from repeating their errors, here are blunders you must avoid.
  • Selling to prospects instead of educating them – You hired partners to help you market your venture through their sites, so let them mind the selling. Your main task is to inform them of the benefits they can gain from the transaction.
  • Thinking that affiliate marketing is not an investment – This scheme may appear trivial but is so effective in reaching more customers. A good business investment is to pay your partners to form a client base.
  • Running too many programs – While having more programs means better sources of income, they may rarely be effective. Focus on one or a few campaigns than having several programs you cannot work on all together. The keys here are focus and attention.
  • Choosing the wrong program(s) – Not every campaign suits each business. With the wrong campaigns, you may have set unreachable goals. Thus, make a thorough assessment before using any program.
  • Linking with the wrong partners – When choosing an affiliate, do not consider online reputation and the traffic it can bring to your web site. Likewise, do not accept applicants at once. Consider their industry and relevance to your products/services. Failure to do this may expose your venture to the wrong groups that are not potential customers.
  • Taking search engine optimization (SEO) for granted –  Online marketing requires search engine friendly tools such as keywords. Whatever is your campaign, use relevant words and phrases because they can connect you to your target consumers.
  • Joining many networks – The success of every campaign relies on how your partners market your business. Their strategies are the ones that work, and not others.
  • Fearing to take a different niche – Never choose the most famous market. Focus on something that offers plenty of room to serve those who received less attention or overlooked by others.
  • Being impatient with the results – It takes time to see your progress in affiliate marketing. Remember, online success does not happen overnight.
  • Failing to track progress – How will you know how far have you gone if you are not monitoring the effectiveness of your campaigns?
To avoid these mistakes, seek the services of an experienced and reliable affiliate manager and achieve both online and business success. Find the best affiliate marketing company for your selling needs.
