So what is an affiliate in simple terms, a person who refers business to you is a promoter and basically a person who wants a commission through selling your products or services online.
Usually someone who already has a marketing background or has some sort of fan base. That is very targeted for your type of product and service. So the amazing part about this, you don’t have to pay a monthly and you don’t have to pay them if they don’t make any sales for your business, so you’re never losing any money for your business. So it’s pretty powerful, but in order to have these affiliates, you need some sort of way to track all of this information who’s, making the sales. When are they making the sales and who to pay out?
What? And you can do that all through an affiliate tracking software that it’s super simple to set up you, you know set up like a plugin for your website and then you’re able to have a dashboard where you can track all your affiliates and all the things that Are happening within these affiliates and also your affiliate get a dashboard as well, where they track their own stuff and all the things that they’re doing and producing so the affiliate tracking software is already out there. It’S already built someone already did all the hard work for you now. You’Re just got to set it up on your website, so you can be able to launch this and have you know, custom links for every affiliate so when they’re, promoting the product, they’re able to track who’s coming to your website and what sales they’re making I’ll have A link below of my favorite tracking software. They have a 14-day trial, so you can try it out.
If you don’t like it, you don’t have to use it. You can try something else, step number three: how do you acquire affiliates for your affiliate program? So the easiest and most effective way is really just to utilize, your existing customers and clients who already love your products and services and are probably already referring people to your website or to your business naturally. But this is going to give them an additional incentive to continue to do it consistently and on a bigger scale. So that’s one of the best ways also affiliate marketing groups.
There are ton of affiliates out there who already do this as a full-time job or career. So they all know how to promote your business in a powerful way check out Facebook groups, forums websites for that, have these affiliates and reach out to them one by one and see who’s willing to promote your product. Three family and friends, online marketers in general content, creators, youtubers bloggers, social media content, creators or even other businesses who are aligned with your business or have very similar client base or customer base and are willing to share their customers with you. So a few things as a bonus, I wanted to give you the mistakes you want to avoid number one mistake is accepting every person into your affiliate program. The last thing you want to do is accept everyone, because the last thing you want is someone who might not understand your business or is gon na make your brand look a certain way that you might not want them to make it look.
You know you don’t want them to hurt your brand or hurt your company or your image, so be very careful with who you take on also be very careful with affiliate marketers, who do very spammy marketing, which can actually hurt your actual domain name and make your Website be considered spam and cause you a lot of problems with your hosts and sending emails and so forth, so be very careful with who you take on and get clear on how they’re going to market your business so having some sort of pre qualifying questions just To make sure they’re doing it in the most authentic way possible number two is driving so much traffic that your host or your server can’t handle it and your website crashes. So the last thing you want is to drive so much traffic to your website that it crashes and if you don’t know too much about hosting servers or anything related to websites, one of the biggest things is. Your website has a cap to how many visitors it can handle at one time so, let’s say you’re paying about $ 10 a month for your hosting provider. Your website can maybe handle 100 to 150 people on the website at one time and anything above that causes the website to crash. Therefore, no one on the website can see the information on the website and that’s a big problem, because let’s say you have 100 affiliates, promoting your business and driving a ton of traffic and potential sales to your business.
But your website can’t even hold those visitors and actually allow them to purchase the product. You’Re gon na cause a lot of problems for the customer for the affiliate and for yourself so be very attentive and ask your hosting provider. How much can my website handle and if you need to upgrade, definitely upgrade it’s gon na be worth it and it’s gon na going to avoid any website crashes number three not being able to handle large amounts of sales at what time it’s very similar to the First one, but it’s more related to the business itself, so let’s say you’re only working by yourself or a team of five people and you can only handle ten services a week, but these affiliates are able to get you a hundred sales a week. You want to make sure you can handle the amount of sales that come in, so they continue to promote your business number four, giving too small of a commission upfront or no additional incentives. A lot of these affiliates are working for free technically until they actually make a commission, so they have to put a lot of time and effort into growing or getting these sales.
So, if you’re giving them very small Commission that is not worth their time. They’Re, not gon na continue to promote, make sure you’re giving decent commissions where it’s worth it for the affiliate and also adding additional incentives to people who are doing well and actually growing your business more than others and giving them bonuses and so forth. Keeping them motivated to want to continue to promote your business and not other businesses, so these are some of the mistakes that you want to avoid in the process, but don’t be scared by this. Every business has this potential risk that can happen when they take on affiliates, but a lot of these things are rare and you know probably what happened to you so just understand that and don’t be afraid to go and still utilize. This method to grow your business and, to finish off, I would like to share an entrepreneurial quote by Charles Darwin, which is it is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive.
But those who can best manage change – and the reason I chose this quote – is because I believe you must be adaptable to business, be adaptable to the marketing and the new technology. And so you can grow and continue to grow your business at an exponential level. Because if you don’t adapt to all these things, your competition will and they will outgrow you and put you out of business. So the last thing you want is to go out of business because you’re not willing to adapt so be willing to adapt, be open. Some.
Some of these things are very technical, and if you’re, not a technical person, get used to it and start becoming technical, because it’s gon na be worth it in the end thanks so much for watching. I hope you got a lot of value from this. Video feel free to check out the links below to the software and the text guide and so forth, as well as my email. You can reach out to me.
