How do you Promote your Affiliate Program?
I think there so many way to Promote Our Affliate Program but In this thime I will Share some of my mine :
1. Active on Fourm Creating a blog
By Active On Popular Forum Forum you can promote your Aflliate there with made new thread, And Also you can promote your Affliate program link on your Signature link. So wherever you posts the Affliate programme Link will be available and so amny members will see your link.
You also can made Blog about your affliate program then promote them on GPT, paid to Surf program, Forum and Get Paid to Click program.
2. promote affiliate programs with pay-per-click search engines.
For many products, pay-per-click search engines can be very good. The idea is that you decide what you're willing to pay per click through to your website.
The most well known of the pay-per-click engines is Yahoo! Search Marketing (formerly Overture).
With Yahoo! Search Marketing you just pay to be listed when the search results come up. In other words, you pay for "placement".
3. The Affiliate Manual
200+ pages of top quality advice and directions from Ken Evoy. Free when you join his affiliate program (free to join, great products, great support). His affiliate newsletter acts as an ongoing update, and when you add in the link tracking program he also gives free to affiliates, it's well worth joining just for the freebies (but don't tell Ken I said that!).
4. Comiison And madE offers
a. Commission Junction University for affiliates
Another source of quality guidance comes from Commission Junction (affiliate program management specialists). In addition to the general information on their site they also conduct conferences that members can attend free of charge, notes from which are later put online. Membership is free.
b. Made Some Offers
By made some Offers on your Affliate program will be more interesting, Like Signup Bonus, I will Give You $xxx by joining my Affliate program, Made Contest And more kind Of offers. I see on program by using this Offers has been growing so fastest then Others.
5. Create Own Promotion Material
Create your own promotion material. I realize that may sound like a strange thing to say.After all, you probably found a whole range of ready-to-use ads and websites in all shapes and sizes when you logged in to your affiliate account! And I'm not saying you shouldn't use those. But I do advise you to create your own variations on them as well.
For the 'why' of writing articles, I also suggest you subscribe to my free eCourse on affiliate marketing.
Thanks And Good Luck.

As an affiliate, you need to drive thousands of targeted visitors to your website every single monht if you want to earn money and finally quit your day job. A few hundreds visitors is not enough.
If you don't know how to build a money making website, don't worry, just register with blogger.com or wordpress.com and create you first blog. It will take you less than five minutes.
If you are brand new to online business, I recommend you start with blogger because it is newbie friendly and the best part is that it' totally free.
For the rest of this article, I assume that you already have a niche and an affiliate program.
Next, write an article about your topic. If you decided to promote "dog training" ebooks, write an informative article about "dog training".
Let me show you a quick and easy way to write an article in any topic even if you never wrote a single word for the last two years...
Step 1: Wikipedia
Just go to wikipedia.com and type your keyword in the search box. You will be taken the dog training page. You just need to read the article and take note of the main keywords.
Do not copy the article there. It's not ethical.
Step 2: Search Engines
Type your main keyword in any search engine, and browse the various websites to find even more information.
Note: You will find more information in the organic results because those webmasters need good and original content to get high rankings.
Step 3: Write your own article
Will all the information you gathered in step 1. Voila! you are now an expert. Just write a "7 steps article". Basically, you list seven important points and add a few paragraphs.
Step 4: Submit your article with a bio box and a link to your site.

Well, being a newbie in this business I decided to start promoting my Affiliate Program by signing up here, at DTM Forum. After reading through some of their very rich and informative ideas and information on how to promote my program, I feel that I am ready to tackle the task of building an empire of affiliates that will make DTM richer with more affiliates which in turn will make me laugh my way to the bank.
Then after a careful consideration of all these information and ideas and tips that I learned I realized that the best way to promote my program is by writing my goal, and the ways I am going to achieve this. It is easy to say, oh, I am going to do this, and do that, and subscribe to this and to that but without action, I know that I will end up nowhere. So here it goes:
Goal: To promote my Affiliate Program
Ways to Achieve It
1. Introduce myself to DTM Community. A guest who hasn't signed up yet and who is browsing might take an interest on what I had to say about why I joined and will join as well.
2. Post in the forum, then invite all my friends from all my 4 web-based e-mails to sign up so they can admire how in the world did I get to be so darn smart that I knew how to post online. Then, they will feel jealous so they will also sign up and will advertise what they have been meaning to sell for the longest time but didn't know where to start!!!
3. Rack up on the free advertising websites and resolve to join one each night and post in their forum at the same time. After 30 nights, that's extra 30 places where the program is seen. I will make sure that I have not forgotten to enable email notification each time I get a reply so I can say hello to interested viewers.
4. Enable my signature. Knock and the door shall be opened to you.
Now, wish me goodluck and hopefully by the end of March, I would have added 30 members to DTM!

Ways To Promote Your Affiliate Programs!
Rule of thumb, don’t spam. Spam is just plain annoying and generally gets ignored. It
also makes you and/or your business look bad.
Emails, when I say email I do not mean SPAM everyone you know. Whatever you do.
DO NOT SPAM. It is annoying and most likely you will not get any referrals. Spam
usually does not get read and just gets deleted or ends up in the spam folder.
You can email your friends and ask them to join this site or recommend a service to them. But here is a more effective way and it’s called signatures. Basically it’s kind of placing your own little ad in your emails.
Most email providers let you place a signature if you go to your settings. Some let you
also place a link and some don’t. So you may have to place it manually. Which means all
you have to do is copy and pastes it to the bottom. Try to keep your ad short and sweet
and don’t go in to detail too much.
Now putting a link in your email is not too difficult. Just click the hyperlink button,
which might look connected chains most likely or say link. All you do is place your link
in the URL section and place what you want the URL to say in the text option. You can
also finish your text first and then highlight where you wanted to insert the link.
2)Websites, Personal Page, Blog and Etc.
Websites, you might have your own website, personal page, blog and etc. Basically what
you do is you place an ad in your website. It’s not that hard. When you place your ad in
your website be creative, but try not to make it look like an actual ad. You could just
place a text ad or make a banner or maybe both. Also make sure it doesn’t stick out to
much cause then it would look a little sketchy.
Explain what you are advertising; make sure to keep it short and sweet, just like real ads.
Also show proof that it works, take a screen shot of your results or show reviews on this
business or service.
Be original and be creative. You can also post bulletins with your ad in them with or
without the banner. Just place it as a signature, so it doesn’t look like you are directly
Text HTML with Link:
<a href="Your Link Here">Your text here</a>
<br> This is a page break. This is where you see that space in between.
Forums, just like emails you can place a signature. Some forums do not allow
advertisements, but some do allow it. If the forum you are signed up to does
allow it than that’s great news for you. All you have to do is place your ad in your
signature. Remember not to spam. The more you post on the forum the more your ad gets
Forum codes for links:
[url=Your Link Here]Your Text Here[/url]
Forum codes for images with links:
[url=Your Link Here][/url]
Image HTML with Link:
<a href="Your Link Here"><img src="Your Image here"></a>
Instant messaging, you probably have a screen name and instant message your friends
and family. Where you can place your ad is in your profile, you can post it up at the top
or the bottom or even better both. The format may vary so please refer to either the
HTML codes or signatures for emails.
What you can do is make reference to the link and place it in the description. That way the person viewing the video knows that the link is there. You will either just place a link in your description or
use HTML if applicable.
6)Pay Per Click Advertising
Many pay per click services such as Google ads or bidvertiser are good, because only people who want to click on the add will click it.

Hints I Use to Market Affiliate Programs
I have found three Necessary Tools that helped me become a better and more Successful Affiliate Marketer.
What does it take to become a successful Affiliate Marketer?
What are the ingredients of an affiliate marketing success story? Is there a shortcut to Affiliate Marketing glory?
These and many other questions ran through my mind as I planned my potential marketing tools.
Many people believe that affiliate marketing is one of the easiest and most effective ways to earn money on line, it is not as easy as it sounds.
Important Tool #1: Your Own Website
The most important and indispensable tool in Affiliate Marketing is your own website. The first step in any successful affiliate marketing business is building a good, credible and professional looking website. Your website is the jump off point of all your marketing efforts.
By posting relevant and useful articles, you establish yourself as a credible expert in the field, making you a more trustworthy endorser of the product or service you promote. Establishing a good reputation is a good step in building up a loyal consumer base.
Important Tool #2: Incentives
Competition is extremely tight in the Internet world. You must always be one-step ahead of your rivals to ensure that you capture a significant share of your target market. Therefore, you must use every possible means to encourage people not only to visit your site but also to click and proceed to the websites of the products and services you are promoting. Building an opt-in email list is one of the best ways to gather prospects. Offer a newsletter or an Ezine.
Better yet, offer incentives to your prospects to encourage them to subscribe to your newsletters. You can present free software, access to exclusive services and other freebies that will be helpful to your prospects.
Important Tool #3: Link Popularity
The importance of driving highly targeted traffic to your website cannot be emphasized enough. The all-important web traffic is at the top of the list of the most important entities in the Internet world. Do everything to achieve a high search engine ranking. Link Popularity is one of the factors that search engines use to determine search engine rankings. Therefore, to enhance your
link popularity, you must launch an aggressive link back campaign.
These are but three of the many tools that an affiliate marketer can use to maximize earning potential. The possibilities are endless and are limited only by your imagination, creativity, resourcefulness and determination. You can always explore other ideas and adapt other strategies, which you think might help you become a high rolling affiliate marketer.

How do you Promote your Affiliate Program?
Powerful To Promote Any Affiliate Program Instantly.
Affiliate marketing is truly one of the most powerful and easiest models online to generate massive cash quickly, fact is you can get started in minutes from now without the hassle of creating your own products or websites.
While there are many factors to consider in the affiliate marketing business, one of the most critical questions I get every time from newer marketers is always...
"Ewen, How Do I Promote My Affiliate Link?"
Here then are 7 powerful promoted you can use to promote any affiliate program with:
#1: Your Own Opt-In List
If you've your own existing opt-in list this would obviously be the quickest way to start. However I'd like to provide you with some ideas to maximize the response and results you wouldn't otherwise get if you never applied them.
It's always a good tactic to provide some kind of time-sensitive bonuses to entice your list to buy through your affiliate link. It has always work and it'll continue to work.
You should also do at least 3 follow-up mailings as statistics have proven that you will get the most sales from your 2nd and 3rd mailings.
Now what if you don't have your own list to begin with?
The most logical action would be to seriously consider building your own money-making list without delay.
#2: Other People's Lists
What do I mean by this? One quick method to leverage on someone else's list is through ezine advertising, particularly with solo ads.
As in all kinds of advertising, what you want to do besides advertising the affiliate program is also to build your own list. A simple way to do this while promoting the affiliate program is by using a catchy one-two sentence signature file after your name.
The best advertising you can get is to pre-qualified targeted lists of like-minded people, especially people with money in hand.
#3: Google Ad Words
You can start promoting any affiliate program in less than 15 minutes with pay-per-click advertising, especially Google Ad Words.
Since Jan 6th 2005, there had been some changes to Google's policies regarding advertising of affiliate products on Google Ad Words.
Without going into boring details, you can still advertise affiliate programs by using landing pages customized to the affiliate program you're promoting.
#4: Article Marketing
This is one tactic you got to get started on because it works.
The key to successful article writing is to provide real information and tips.
Make sure it doesn't sound like an outright sales pitch. Any recommendations you make should be added value to the article. The recommendation should not be its main purpose.
#5: Leverage On Your Existing Web Pages
There are 3 main ways to go about doing this...
One is to simply promote your affiliate programs on highly trafficked and relevant pages of your website. Check your website statistics to see which pages visitors view the most.
These are great target areas for your promotions, especially if they are relevant to the affiliate product in question.
Two, recommend affiliate products on your thank you pages. After a visitor has made a purchase from you or sign up for your ezine, all you've to do is add in a short recommendation of an affiliate product prominently on the thank you page.
Third, use your custom error (404) pages as affiliate marketing tools. This is the page that shows up when visitors enter a wrong URL or extension, there's no point in wasting this space so why not use it to promote an affiliate product?
#6: Capture Exit Traffic On Demand
You can quickly make extra affiliate sales just by using an exit window or pop up window to promote your affiliate programs.
While there are pop up killers out there, you'll be surprised just how many percent of people actually install them - I don't.
Fact is, pop ups, especially exit pop ups still produce good results. Stick with one tasteful pop-up targeted to your visitors and you'll see great results.
#7: Other Quick And Simple Tips
Recommend affiliate products in your 'thank you emails'.
This is a no-brainier, whether you're saying thanks for joining your ezine or for buying a product, always give your email recipients an affiliate recommendation for a targeted product you've personally found useful.
You can also create auto responder courses on topics related to the affiliate program you're promoting as a form of follow-up p reselling.
Go and profit from your affiliate programs with confidence!
