Affiliate marketing guides A couple years ago, I was an affiliate of a skincare company when I received an unexpected call from my affiliate manager. He told me they had a bug in their tracking that was over-reporting the sales we generated by 15%. We were pulling in $10,000 a day in commissions from them, so let’s just say that he had my attention. “Don’t worry about it,” he said. “It’s our error and we know you use our reporting to optimize your campaigns. We’ll fix it and pay you all the over-reported commissions.” We thanked them for comping us the ghost conversions and went on to generate over $1,000,000 more in real commissions as their affiliate. This skincare company ran a fantastic affiliate program and in the anecdote above, they employed the golden rule of affiliate management: “Keep your super affiliates happy”. You may be wondering how we connected with this skincare affiliate program in the first place. Well, we use a tool called digger (which we built and own) to find new affiliate programs to work with. oDigger is an affiliate offer search engine and a simple search for “skincare” returns all the skincare related affiliate offers along with a link to sign up to each affiliate program. Every day, thousands of affiliates use oDigger to search for new affiliate programs to work with. oDigger is the largest affiliate program directory in the industry and affiliate programs powered by HasOffers are super easy to list on oDigger. If your affiliate program is listed on oDigger, chances are a super affiliate has already stumbled across your page. So how do you hook a super affiliate and get them to reach out? 10 Elements Super Affiliates Look For In An Affiliate Program: 1. Clear, crisp landing page or screen. The quality of your landing pages is paramount and a super affiliate can instantly tell a winner from loser. Make sure to continually optimize your landing pages for conversions. Super affiliates will notice and come knocking. Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 1

2. A great reputation. There are many affiliate network review sites (oDigger included) so there is no excuse for not taking control of your brand image. Get your affiliates to leave you good reviews. Even a couple will pay off. 3. Consistent on time payments. If you are late with even one payment, you may lose us. Sorry, your competitors pay us (as affiliates) on time. You should too. 4. A clear competitive advantage. Every affiliate network says they have great support, highest payouts, reporting, etc. To get a super affiliate’s attention you need to be clear about what your competitive advantage is. Do you do one niche better than anyone else? Do you have exclusives? Are your landing pages converting really well? Communicate a different competitive advantage from the rest and it will pay dividends. 5. A strong rewards program. We worked with one network for years because they issued prepaid gift cards based on commissions generated. We loved getting those little envelopes in the mail. 6. Brand bidding. If you don’t let a super affiliate bid on your brand we will never work with you. 7. Quick communication. Super affiliates will constantly bombard you with requests (changes to landing pages, banners etc). If we have to wait to get approval from the advertiser then we’ll lose interest (and money). 8. Transparency. Super affiliates thrive on knowledge so share everything with us. If you need us to sign an NDA, no problem. We’ll both make more money if we put our heads together. 9. Niche domination. If an affiliate program specializes in a niche (gaming, diet, payday, etc) and brings exclusive expertise to the table, I’ll notice. 10. Direct line to advertiser. Super affiliates prefer to work directly with an advertiser because it means clean communication, fast turnaround times on updates and no middleman taking a piece of the commission. If you want to turn your affiliate program from a ghost town to a thriving bustling commission center, use the guidelines above and always remember to abide by the golden rule of affiliate management: keep your super affiliates happy! Want one more golden rule story? Several years ago we were working with an affiliate network called MarketLeverage and an advertiser stiffed them on a big invoice. We had been promoting the advertiser and MarketLeverage owed us $xx,xxx. MarketLeverage paid us our commissions even though they themselves didn’t get paid. We continued working with them and went on to become their number two affiliate in terms of gross conversions. II. Affiliate marketingstrategies Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 2

Affiliate marketing is a low-cost way for merchants to build awareness and showcase their products and services. The model is simple; it works as a commission-based referral system. A partner or affiliate markets a merchant's products for a "piece of the pie." Affiliate marketing experts often make an income that can tally over five figures per month, however only 1 to 5% of thousands of marketers achieve this level. When an affiliate reaches this elite level they are often referred to as a "super" affiliate. How does one become a super affiliate? Can anyone do it? Super affiliates have common tactics that they embrace and put into place. Anyone can become a super affiliate, but it will not come without blood, sweat, and a hefty time commitment. The typical super affiliate possesses the following traits:  Persistence  Patience  Thirst for Knowledge These three traits combined with the following strategy gives you the formula for the makings of a "super" affiliate. 1. Find a Unique Niche The mistake that many affiliate marketing hopefuls have in common is that they try to offer everything under the sun rather than focusing on a specific niche market. Do not scatter your efforts, focus on your niche, promote it, and sell it well. 2. Search Engine Marketing Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 3 View slide

Once you've built your affiliate storehouse you will need to promote it. Many affiliates use pay-per-click engines. I suggest that you learn how to achieve organic search results or hire a search engine marketing company. This will save you from spending all your profits on pay-per-click engines. Only use pay-per-click engines if you know what you are doing, otherwise all your profits may end in the hands of Google Adwords or Overture. 3. Know Your Product, Know Your Audience Create a resource. By taking the time to learn about the products and/or services that you are offering you can create information that builds your credibility. That credibility builds trust. If your viewers do not have trust in you more than likely they will not purchase from your storehouse. If you want more information on the psychological process that an online buyer goes through I suggest that you read my article on the Five Levels of Internet Marketing and the Sales Process. This will help you in creating a web site that converts well, which in return will increase your cash flow. 4. Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Basket Promote products from different merchants. This way if you have a problem with receiving payment from a merchant, or their products do not convert well the effects on your business will be minimal. Watch out for exclusivity agreements; remember this is your business. Protect yourself and diversify so that you do not feel the famine effect if something goes wrong. There is absolutely nothing wrong with promoting niche products from different merchants. 5. Seek Knowledge and Embrace Change If you are familiar with Internet marketing at all you know that what worked three months ago may not work today. Stay on top of the trends. Seek knowledge, start by learning something new about affiliate marketing daily. For example remember those marketing tools called "banner" that use to drive sales at an astronomical rate a few years ago? Well those banners developed a term called "banner blindness." That means most online viewers will not click on banners even if they Performance review phrases comments/ free download examples Page 4 View slide

do pertain to what they are looking for. To be a "super" affiliate you must always spend time reading, learning, and embracing the changes in Internet marketing. 6. Don't Give Up It's hard to do, and most of the time those dabbling in affiliate marketing give up way too soon. Monitor your statistics, watch to see what is working and what is not. Make changes when necessary. Do one thing daily to promote your storehouse and be patient. Before you know it you will start getting payments. Remember that it will not happen overnight. Encompass and develop the persistence, patience, and knowledge. Then follow the tactics I've mentioned above and you are on your way to becoming a "super" affiliate.
