Today there are millions of websites promoting goods for sale and with every website owner, the number one goal, is to increase Traffic to their site, especially Targeted Traffic.
By that I mean customers who are already interested in their products or services.
In order to get more traffic, many things can be done, from Article Marketing to Google Pay Per Click campaigns, but all this takes a lot of time and energy to set up.
One of the best and most popular ways to generate more traffic to websites, is by the way of implementing an Affiliate Campaign into your Marketing Strategy.
This is where you get people to sign-up as Affiliates to the website and start promoting the products on behalf of the site owners.
Now for every sale they then make they will receive a commission of usually between 20% to 75%.
The Affiliates are usually provided with Marketing materials such as Banners, which they can then place on their own website, or articles or emails which they can send out.
The number one problem here, is that these AFFILIATES are not shown or taught HOW to market these products correctly, resulting in a lot of missed opportunities, with many affiliates walking away because they are not making any money! The website owners are left scratching their heads saying to themselves: "What have I done wrong and what can I do to make sure these guys get the necessary training?" That, my friend is why so many affiliate campaigns fall flat and never work.
I, myself have been an Affiliate Marketer for a number of years and have made a steady income promoting other peoples products but have never really hit the BIG TIME!! You see the real problem was that I was never really shown how to do this type of Marketing properly.
Sure I read countless books and scoured the internet for information, but no-one really sat me down and showed me how to do things properly.
I think things are much easier these days with the evolution of the internet and the introduction of the Web 2.
Its now much easier to sit at your lap-top and watch videos on YouTube that actually teach you in a step by step process, its much like having your own private tutor.
There are now many companies and programs that offer such coaching for the would be Affiliate Marketer and indeed website owners who want to implement this type of marketing strategy into their business.
This is hugely beneficial to both parties, since it creates a perfect platform from which to generate more traffic and business by using an Army of these Affiliate Marketers promoting your products and services.
By coaching these marketers how to promote the products correctly, using various online methods, both the web site owner and the affiliate will be more successful.
The Internet is now so massive and will only increase with time, so with web businesses popping up all the time, this will be a great opportunity for site owners to set-up an Affiliate program and then have quality coaching available for them to then promote their site and ultimately gain huge amounts of Traffic literally overnight.
