Become a successful affiliate marketer in 3 simple easy-to-follow steps

How does affiliate marketing work?

For you as an individual as well as for businesses, it is quite possible to earn good money by becoming successful affiliate. Whether you just want to earn a second income or start a new business right away, both are feasible. There is still a lot of potentials, especially in niche products.

Affiliate marketing is one of the classic disciplines in online marketing. The marketing model used worldwide is also used extensively by the internationally known trading platform Amazon. The idea is to advertise products on thematically related websites, online profiles, emails, and much more, and to pay the advertiser a pre-determined commission when it comes to a deal.

 

Step 1

FREE registration

In the vast majority of cases, a product provider offers its products on a platform. In my case this is Digistore24 at the moment, others are in preparation.

This platform brings the product provider and the advertiser together and ensures the payment of the commission, the delivery of the product, invoicing to the customer, payment processing, etc.

If you don't have a Digistore24 account yet, you can set up one quickly and easily, it is entirely FREE of cost and it only takes 3 minutes.

The website of the Digistore24 platform will open in a new browser window.

Step 3

Earn commission

Share the affiliate link wherever it is appropriate.

As soon as someone clicks on your affiliate link, they will be taken to the Digistore page and Digistore will automatically redirect them to my sales page. There the customer can find out the price and other product details. Your Affiliate ID is temporarily stored in the customer's browser and is automatically passed on to Digistore if he clicks the "Buy button". This is how Digistore will assign you the commission.

How to advertise the project management template set?

You are your own boss, however, here some basics on how to become a successful affiliate:

Things that work and things that don't

It is well known that one should sell a solution to a problem rather than a product.

Writing a project management plan is a lot of work. I'm not just saying that, I know that. During my years as a project manager, I have already written several such plans. A project manager often spends an awful lot of time and often works late in the evening and even on weekends.

Time and effort savings are therefore solutions that can be offered.

Next, there's a lot more to a comprehensive project management plan than just a schedule and budget. It consists of many individual plans such as scope, time, costs, resources, quality, risks, etc.

This is another advantage of using templates. Since the complete structure including all sub-ordinate plans has already been put together, you can simply start creating the plan without having to worry about what needs to be mentioned and where. Having the complete structure makes work a lot easier.

In addition, there are other practical documents, registers, and templates in my template package, which are very helpful for project implementation. However, my focus here is on the construction industry.

How do my templates differ from others?

There are many template packages out there and they are sure to have their own merits. Some providers add several hundred templates to their sets. However, it is often found that the same template is included several times and only differs from others in terms of design.

This is not the case with me. Of course, all templates have a consistent design, but the focus is clearly on the content. So there are no duplicate templates in my package to increase the number of documents and give the appearance that the package is huge. But that doesn't mean that my template package is less complete than others.

What is the sales process?

If the product fits you, your social media presence, your website, your email list, your business, or whatever, you should address people and see if there is a certain problem (need) there, which can be solved with the product.

Don't try to sell them templates - although at the end of course it boils down to that - try to offer a solution to their problem. For example time savings or work relief, confidence, and the like.

You have to slowly introduce them to the product and continuously explain what the benefits are for them.

If you have done this sufficiently, you can send them to the product sales page using the link generated above. There they can find more technical product details etc. and can add it to the virtual shopping cart and “go to the checkout“.

What else you should pay attention to in order to become a successful affiliate?

If you are promoting my templates, please do not include any price information. Prices and discounts may change from time to time. So you would run the risk of making false promises, which could lead to complaints and dissatisfaction.

Where do buyers come from?

Most sales come about as follows.

It seems that visitors to my website who come to my site via a search engine like Google or Bing are more inclined to buy directly.

Website visitors generated via Facebook or other platforms tend to buy a little later after they have received a few emails with samples and the like.

I attribute this to the fact that the former is actively looking for templates, while the latter probably noticed the product advertisement more incidentally.

Images say more than words

Although my templates are a digital product and no software package or DVD or the like will be sent in the event of a sale, it is widespread and customary to display a ‘representative picture’.

I have no objection if you download my pictures and use them to promote my templates.

However, I would advise you not to copy the images. Instead, use the link underneath the respective image as 'href'. The advantage is obvious. If I change the picture, you would automatically benefit if you link to it instead of copying. In other words, your article or whatever would update automatically. I leave the decision to you. Both is okay.

Use:

Are the templates also available on Clickbank?

No, I am German and live in Dubai. For some reason inexplicable to me, Clickbank doesn't like me. 🙁 This is the problem with Clickbank, they reject applications without giving explanations. C'est la vie... If something changes, I'll let you know.

Should I include the product price on my page?

I expressly ask you not to do so, please. The price can be subject to change over time, there can be special offers and you could make false promises.

How can I promote the templates?

If the product, here project management templates, fits you, your social media presence, your website, your email list, your business, or whatever, you should address people and see if there is a certain problem (need) there, which can be solved with the product.

Don't try to sell them templates - although at the end of course it boils down to that - try to offer a solution to their problem. For example time savings or work relief, confidence, and the like.

You have to slowly introduce them to the product and continuously explain what the benefits are for them.

If you have done this sufficiently, you can send them to the product sales page by the link generated above. There they can find more technical product details etc. and can add it to the virtual shopping cart and “go to the checkout“.

How much can i earn and how am I getting paid?

How much you earn depends on you. Many affiliates make the mistake of sending one quick email to a certain number of people and hope that they will now make a lot of money very quickly. Unfortunately, that usually does not work.

You have to view this as your business that you will have to invest time and effort in to grow it.

You will probably have to send more than just an email and put the link in different places. You shouldn't exclude the idea of your own website or blog. This can still be set up free of charge with some providers and you don't need any coding skills these days. If you \ 're able to create a reasonably decent presentation, then a website will not present you with much difficulty either. So, what are you waiting for?

If then someone decides to buy, he/she will click on your link. You have added your affiliate ID to the link. Digistore assigns the sale to you and credits your account with your commission.

The commission will be transferred periodically to the bank account you specified.

How can I create an affliliate link and what is it used for?

There are thousands of videos on Youtube. Many of them are really helpful, but please be careful if someone tries to tell you that they just made $ 10,000 overnight. I am not saying that this is completely out of the question, but let's be honest, this is probably the exception.

If you really want to learn about affiliate marketing, I recommend buying one or even several online courses. Beware, most of the courses are by people like you and me, and are fun and addicting. They usually include several hours of online learning. See it as an investment in yourself. You don't need to spend huge sums of money. I bought a few courses on Udemy and spent an average of $ 10-30 per course.

I had purchased a real nice one, but it was in German language. I will share a few links here soon.

In the meantime just check Udemy. They have good courses and frequent offers. What are you waiting for?
