List Building Goal – Grow a Highly Targeted List With Affiliate Marketing
Your number one goal in list building should be to grow a highly targeted list of subscribers. The best way to do this begins with really knowing who your audience is, what is your niche and what do your subscribers want, and then picking the right products that will be most appealing to them.
Most affiliate marketing programs will provide you with a sales page. I tend to lean towards the ones that make it really, really easy to promote their product. When they come with pre-written emails and pre-written posts that you can put out on social networking me this is the way to go. How simple is it if all you have to do is copy what they have already given you and your done? Of course you can always tweak what they provide, but at least you have a really great starting point.
So where do you find good products to promote? I think one of the best is a product that you have used and had a really great experience with. It is so easy to talk about something that you got great results from, or helped you save a ton of time or a ton of money. Whenever you find yourself in this situation you should always check to see if they have an affiliate program you could join.
If you don’t have personal experience with something is it OK to promote it? Well, of course you can do whatever you want and lots of internet marketers sell stuff all the time that they don’t use themselves, but I always recommend that if you can buy it and use it yourself, you are much better off.
When you do this it will give you an advantage over the other people that are promoting it. You will be able to talk about the product from personal can tell your customer why you think they will like it, how it can help them, and you can talk about the benefits that you got from it. You gain instant credibility in the mind of your customer because they see you as someone who is speaking from just someone who is trying to sell them something.
Another thing you can do if you haven’t tried a product yourself is to go on the recommendation of people you know. You can ask around and see what results and positive experiences other people in your niche are having. Get feedback from others and if you have gotten good information from them before and you feel comfortable, go ahead and promote it on that basis.
Keep in mind that the main thing is to make sure that whatever it is a real, solid fit for your niche. If it is something that people are looking for and it solves a problem for them or makes things faster, or easier, or ‘ve probably got a winner. If you keep giving your subscribers what they want, they will stay on your list and want to hear more from you. This will go a long way in your list building efforts and help you grow a stable business.
