Being in the affiliate marketing business is not that hard
now with the internet at your disposable. It is much easier
now compared to the days when people have to make use of
the telephones and other mediums of information just to get
the latest updates on the way their program is coming along.
So with technology at hand, and assuming that the affiliate
is working from home, a day in his or her life would sound
something like this…
Upon waking up and after having breakfast, the computer is
turned on to check out new developments in the network. As
far as the marketer is concerned there might be new things
to update and statistics to keep track on.
The site design has to be revised. The marketer knows that
a well-designed site can increase sign ups from visitors.
It can also help in the affiliate’s conversion rates.
That done, it is time to submit the affiliate program to
directories that lists affiliate programs. These
directories are means to attract people in joining your
affiliate program. A sure way of promoting the affiliate
Time to track down the sales you are getting from your
affiliates fairly and accurately. There are phone orders
and mails to track down. See if they are new clients
checking the products out. Noting down the contact
information that might be a viable source in the future.
There are lots of resources to sort out. Ads, banners,
button ads and sample recommendations to give out because
the marketer knows that this is one way of ensuring more
sales. Best to stay visible and accessible too.
The affiliate marketer remembered that there are questions
to answer from the visitors. This has to be done quickly.
Nothing can turn off a customer than an unanswered email.
To prove that the affiliate is working effectively and
efficiently, inquiries would have to be paid more attention
on. Nobody wants to be ignored and customers are not always
the most patient of all people. Quick answer that should
appear professional yet friendly too.
In the process of doing all the necessities, the marketer
is logged on to a chat room where he or she interacts with
other affiliates and those under that same program. This is
where they can discuss things on how to best promote their
There are things to be learned and it is a continuous
process. Sharing tips and advices is a good way of showing
support. There may be others out there wanting to join and
may be enticed by the discussion that is going on. There is
no harm in assuming what opportunities ahead.
The newsletters and ezines were updated days ago, so it is
time for the affiliate marketer to see if there are some
new things happening in the market. This will be written
about in the marketer’s publication to be distributed to
the old and new customers.
These same publications are also an important tool in
keeping up to date with the newly introduced products. The
marketer has put up a sale and promotion that customers may
want to know about. Besides, they have to keep up with the
deadline of these sales written in the publications.
It is that time to show some appreciation to those who have
helped the marketer in the promotions and sale increase.
Nothing like mentioning the persons, their sites and the
process they have done that made everything worked.
Of course, this will be published in the newsletters. Among
the more important information that have been written
The marketer still has time to write out recommendations to
those who want credible sources for the products being
promoted. There is also time to post some comments on how
to be a successful affiliate marketer on a site where there
are lots of wannabees.
Two objectives done at the same time. The marketer gets to
promote the product as well as the program they are in. Who
knows, someone may be inclined to join.
Time flies. Missed lunch but is quite contented with the
tasks done. Bed time….
Ok, so this may not be all done in a day. But then, this
gives you an idea of how an affiliate marketer, a dedicated
one that is, spends the marketing day.
Is that success looming in the distance or what?
