Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online.

There are various benefits to it.

One of the major benefits that attracts me is that with affiliate marketing, you don’t need to create a product to make sales.

Creating a product is a tedious task (although for some businesses, this cannot be totally avoided).

Some bloggers might find it easier especially after they have created more than one product in the past.

But if you haven’t yet created a product, creating your first product is a challenging and time-consuming task.

It will need you to put in time and effort, usually leaving aside or moving aside your regular blogging activities.

But wait! I am not discouraging you against creating your own product. I actually insist bloggers to create their own products.

Apart from acting as a regular stream of income, a product of your own will speak for your authority in your niche.

But who doesn’t want to make money without doing much of a hard work ;)?

Well, I am in!

Affiliate marketing is one such way, where you don’t have to create a product of your own, but can still make money from others’ products.

You don’t have to worry about setting up your sales website, setting up payment processors, dealing with customer support and updating the product – Nothing!

But then affiliate marketing is not so easy-peasy as you might think of!

There is still a reasonable amount of “work” you have to do.

I am not going to talk about that in this post. Rather I am going to give you tips for long-term success with affiliate marketing.

The key with affiliate marketing is to build trust.

These tips will help you become a trustworthy person in your niche, so people will buy your recommendations without a second thought.

#1 Do not promote a product that you have not tried yourself

“I take issue with this considering the $2,999 price tags on some of my products! Besides that’s what #goodbloggers reporting is for!”

OK, I’m sure not many will agree with me on this. And my statement is a generic one, isn’t?

Well you can’t always do this. There are exceptions.

But in general, do not promote a product that you haven’t tried out yourself.

This is why I say so: You won’t be able to clearly point out the positives and negatives of a product if you haven’t tried it out yourself.

Do you agree with me on this?

Well, I said there are exceptions! Yes you will not able to afford to buy every laptop and camera you review.

And you may not need every software out there

#2 Research about the product

Before you promote

…a product (even after you have used it) research about the product to see for any scammy associations. “I know from experience that your sponsor does not always make a correct leader decision. Like intro to program that has a question in format, what are the last four digits of your social security number. Minor or major?”

I usually do a search with “product name + negative keywords” – and negative keywords are usually stuff like “sucks”, “scam”, “waste” and words like that depending upon which product you are choosing.

As always a product cannot please everyone on the planet so there will be haters even for a decent product.

So make sure you are not jumping into conclusions by reading just one or two personal views.

When you research for such scam relations to the product, it is best to read user comments in other than the original blog post.

Even better, if you research in forums you can see really useful information on the topic.

Nevertheless, as I said, do not judge a product by looking at what some people say.

The fact that some people write bad reviews about the product doesn’t mean that the product is crappy, but if you are seeing some bad reviews, then you should get that into account! “I find this particularly helpful.”

#3 Make sure the product promises what it delivers

This is one of the main reasons why it is important to try the product before promoting it!

If you don’t use the product, you won’t know if it delivers what it promises.

Products with fake promises are really annoying. Sometimes, the product owners simply promise stuff to market the product.

Sometimes the product owner might simply hype things about the product because it is “their” product!

So if you are going to write a review of the product or put up a banner on your site or recommend that product to your readers in a blog post just by believing that hypey sales page, you could be doing injustice to your readers.

Since it is YOUR recommendation, it is also YOUR responsibility to check out the product thoroughly before you make a recommendation.

Don’t just take a glance at the sales page or read the product features and make recommendations based on your reading.

You really have to find out if the product delivers the promises!

#4 Make sure the product has a good standing in the market

This is something I am recently seeing myself as a business owner and affiliate. You come to know about a great product.

You buy and try it yourself. You find the product amazing. You find it reasonably priced as well.

And you find that the product also delivers everything as promised in the sales letter.

So you write your recommendation. But then things change after a while!

The product stops receiving any updates. Or the product owner disappears from the market.

Have you seen any of these? I have!

That is why recently I have it as a policy to specifically research for the “good standing” of the product and/or the product owner in the market.

You need to look at the following aspects:

· How long is the product in the market?

· Who/What company is behind the product?

· How long has the company been the market?

· How long is the company doing this (relevant) business?

· … and this kind of research.

Unless you clearly know about the company’s (and the product’s) standing do not recommend the product.

Remember, with affiliate marketing, it is all about building trust.

If you recommend a product that does not have a good standing in the market, you will only ruin your reputation and trust!

#5 Make sure the product gets good support from the developers

SFI Affiliate System

“Just because you don’t always agree with what you’re hearing, does not mean you’re not getting good support; they’re always there once you connect! So you go around a few times, that’s communications that doesn’t take weeks!”

There is no point in recommending a product if the customers are not going to get proper support for it.

You are providing a recommendation as a blogger to *help* your readers.

And if the product does not get proper support from its developers, those who buy the product will be left confused and annoyed!

Personally, I value support very much! Whenever I research to buy a product, I see how good the support is.

You can see this by visiting forum threads that talk about this product, read reviews and so on.

Mainly, I value a product by not only seeing its features but I give weight to the support (and documentation).

Basically it doesn’t matter how great the product is – if I cannot get help when with something, there is no point in using that product.

And when I face such an issue, I not only find the product useless but I also get annoyed! So it is quite natural that I need to put myself in the shoes of my readers.

Tip: As a reviewer/affiliate, be prepared to answer questions about the product – or tell the product owner about the review and arrange for him/her to answer some of the critical questions about the product.

#6 Don’t write an all-positive-buy-it-NOW kind of review

“When trying to find an objective review, do you find only reviews from the #starstruckaffiliates in an MLM program? Aggravating isn’t it?”

In your review, make sure you point out both the positives and negatives of the product. I am 200% sure that no product is perfect!

Why? Because “perfect” is a word that is person-dependent. Something that is “perfect” to me would be crappy to you! And vice versa. Why? Because we all have different preferences.

I might have different needs with my business and your needs could be different from mine; so are the features with any product.

So make sure you don’t paint an all-positive picture. If you write such a review people will see you as a “desperate” affiliate marketer who wants to push sales.

If you write a “genuine” review which points out both the positives and negatives of a product you will not only make the review really useful to your readers, but you will also build trust in the industry. “Or you simply keep looking for a #realreview!”

Rather than simply pointing out the features, if you do tutorial, it would be great.

While you do a video review showing a hands on session, people will be able to actually look at the product being used – these kind of reviews are highly helpful for products that don’t have a free or trial version – you will help people look behind the walls before they can actually invest in the product.

“It’s not the Taj Mahal, but it’s me they are actually getting in most cases. So let’s call this my behind the scenes! Where the work gets done by me alone! Forgot to move the yoga mat.”

They will also be able to “see” the challenges in using the product and/or how easy it is to use the product for a particular type of usage!

#7 Update your review often

This is something I have to do myself with my current reviews – I can say this is a note to myself.

Reviews need to be updated regularly, don’t you agree? Things change! So do products and their updates.

With every update, a product could be fixing a bug, or could come out of beta, or could introduce new features, or could change its pricing or something like that!

So it is important that you keep yourself updated of these changes. Usually all product owners keep their affiliates informed of these changes.

Make sure you stay subscribed to the affiliate list of the products for which you are an affiliate.

This will help you easily stay updated. Otherwise it would be a tedious job for you to manually check the updates of those products!

Once you find out that there has been a change of any form (as the ones mentioned above), please do update your review so!

Think of this scenario – when people land on your review page when they see that your review outdated, they are simply going to bounce off. Nobody wants to read an outdated review.

Affiliate marketing: Takeaway tips and conclusion

As I said, the key element is to build trust. If you look for making some quick commissions, you will only fail trying. Just put yourselves in the shoes of the buyer.

Let’s say you come across a recommendation from a person you trust and then you also read another product promotion review from a person who you barely know or a person who have been in the market for a very short time!

From whom will you make those purchases? From the person you trust, right?

Even if you were on the fence about buying that product, a recommendation or an endorsement from the person you trust will surely make you buy it!

So focus on building trust.

Be honest and transparent when you make product promotions or recommendations.

It will take some time. But you will make it!

Hope you found these affiliate marketing tips useful!

Motivational Team Leadership

A Team With The Right Motivation

Building a team not much different from students that look up to the leader.

They challenge you, make you proud or bewilder you from time to time. Honestly.  But when money is involved and their success is completely tied into your bottom line, not to mention your sense of being a leader, and your accomplishments.  There’s a whole new element to the game.

You work day and night to bring them into your group.  Motivation, case studies, famous quotes, private talks and whatever is trending sometimes. To bring the lead vision into focus, you worked so hard to get them here. Mostly worldwide advertising is called for. Getting them to feel part of a team is necessary.  Sometimes more than motivation is called; real pay.

4 Things the Best Leaders Say to Their Teams to Get Real Results
Are you encouraging your teams to do the results you know they’re capable of?

By Chris McGoff
Founder, The Clearing@ChrisMcGoff

What you say and what you do influences those around you. Regardless of whether you’re leading a team or you’re a part of one.  The culture you create by your words and actions is a living thing. You can cultivate it to drive amazing results.  Or you can let it languish and see your quality and culture suffer as a result.

Not only how you speak, but when you speak and who you speak to contributes to the culture you’re driving. Are you giving useful feedback in a way that the person you’re giving it to hears it.  And then wants to do something about it? What kind of feedback are you providing to your team? And how are you encouraging them to make the results you know they’re capable of?

The Question of feedback.  How can you effectively get the message out?

The most effective feedback is the kind that you to craft so that it’s the right message.  And it is delivered at the right time and for the right reason to the right person. In taking this time, you are showing a deep level of caring for your team, and that type of caring does not go unnoticed.

Feedback, of course, can come in many forms, and the same approach doesn’t work for everyone. Below are the concepts of several phrases that you should say to your team often.  Take the time to convey them in the way that they will have the most effect. It may take a little more effort, but in the end they will drive powerful results.

What you and your team members are doing is more than the word document they’re typing in, the spreadsheet they’re updating.  More than the angry call they’re managing. What they do impacts the world. Reminding them of that is powerful.
A brickmaker could see his job as mixing sand and rock to make bricks.  Or he could understand that the bricks he’s making today will build buildings that will house happy families.  That will build vibrant workplaces for generations to come.

Ennoble them.  Remind them of how powerful their work truly is.  And how great an impact they’re making on tomorrow, even if it just seems like a simple thing today. Here are four mantras you can start working

1. Trust the Universe.

If we don’t trust the universe and choose not to step into risk, then we’ll never imagine without limit. It’s only in trusting the universe that transformative actions can take place. Don’t let your team members limit their vision because they’re afraid of risk.
Encourage grand ideas, test theories, and let the wheels spin. Real change is only possible when we leap and believe that the net will find us.

2. What you resist persists. What you embrace, disappears.

Ignoring something does not make it go away and eventually, the truth will come out. You can try to put a spin on something, trying to make it seem better than it is.  But if you don’t bring problems into the open, naming and embracing them all, then you’ll never resolve them.
Team members should be encouraged always to be truthful about their challenges.  And To use the leverage of their team to find solutions. Tucking problems out-of-the-way only allows them to fester and grow.

3. Focus on doing a few things well instead of trying to do a bit of everything.

Rather than do a few things about everything, the most powerful leaders and teams choose to focus on the fewest most important things that need to be accomplished. Then do them well. Whether it’s an organization or an individual team member, encourage focus.  One to three of the most important things that need to be done that day, instead of spreading oneself thin over dozens of tasks.  It’s the key to driving real results.

4. Is it necessary?

Constantly urge your team members to check the way they do things.  Ask, “Is it necessary?” Chances are there are more than one stepa.  Action, approval, etc. that could be eliminated with no harm to the product.
The Japanese call it “muda.”  It can sneak into systems without us even realizing it.  Just like a cluttered closet at home, they need to be cleaned out regularly.

Ask your team members if the things they’re spending time doing are truly addressing the needs of the customer and the business. If they aren’t, those activities need to go.

Intentionally designing how we speak to those around us, will intentionally drive a better culture.  And ultimately, better results. Feedback, when done correctly and delivered with precision, is one of the greatest forms of caring.  And that will always be met with positivity.
