Common Affiliate Mistakes

Do an Internet search and chances are you will find yourself at an affiliate marketing site. Affiliate marketing has really taken off over the past few years. Some affiliate marketing sites work and some don’t. Some disappear before they really have a chance to take off (1-3 years). Here are a few common mistakes that are made by new affiliate marketers.

• Study the affiliate marketing program that you are considering signing up for. Hugh commissions mean nothing if you can’t make a sale. Pick an affiliate marketing program that meshes with your area of expertise. It will be easier to write content for a site you have a passion for. In the long run, you’ll make a lot more money than with a product you know nothing about.

• If you have an email sign up on your site, use it wisely. Make sure the emails that you send out have helpful information. DON’T SPAM. Yes, you want your affiliate links in the email but take the time necessary to set it up so it doesn’t look like spam. If it does, you’ll annoy your subscribers and you’ll start losing them.

• Write original content. There is lots of public domain affiliate marketing copy out there but don’t copy and paste it into your site. Rewrite it and add something worthwhile to it. Make sure your content is unique.

It is common to make mistakes when starting up. It is going to happen. Take the opportunity and learn from your mistakes.
