3 Ways To Avoid Affiliate Marketing Failure

Affiliate marketing is a good place for you to be your own boss but it is also a burial for many people’s dream. So who are you? Someone who is on the right track or someone who just trip into the grave? You can leverage on affiliate marketing if you know how to avoid the common failure.

1. Marketing consistently

Strangely enough, there are a lot of affiliate marketers who just market their product once in a blue moon. As you know, your customers are roughly 1% to the population you market to.

This means among 100 people you market to, only 1 of them will buy your product or service. Then, how about the rest of the 99% people?

They might buy from you in the future or not at all. Let’s say they need to buy your product next month and you are not there. Will they wait for you or search for your email a month ago? The answer is hardly either one of them. Your prospects will just spend their money on someone who market to them consistently.

By the way, human being has short memory. Even if your offers are attractive, they will forget about you if you don’t appear in front of them constantly.

Since whoever has more exposure will get the sales, why not you?

2. Know what your customers want

This is one of the crucial factors you must have if you were to be successful in affiliate marketing. Countless people have highlighted the importance of knowing your customers’ needs yet a lot of affiliate marketers still ignore its impact.

So, ask your customers their needs. But, how should you ask the questions?

You can send them an email asking for their help. Tell them you want to help them achieve what they want but you can’t do that if you don’t know their needs. Ask them to help you to help them.

Always be careful of your tone. What you need is information, not confrontation. Treat your customers like how you want to be treated.

3. Focus on benefits

After you know their needs, you will know what products you can refer to them.

However, some affiliate marketers just list out all the features of the product rather than the benefits the customers can enjoy.

Let’s say someone trying to sell you an elliptical trainer. He tells you that it comes with 18 inches pedals, movable handle bars and 12 computer controlled resistance levels. If you have no knowledge about elliptical trainer, will you buy the product?

What if he tells you that the 18 inches pedal is more than enough to support you as a 1.87m adult, the movable handle bars are there to give you cardio and strength workout and the 12 computer controlled resistance levels are to help you find the best exercise program. Doesn’t that stir your buying desire?

Your prospects are not going to give you their money easily. Give them a reason to.
