The interenet is filled with desparate affiliate marketers. There is nothing wrong with affiliate marketing in itsself, but it is the ethics of many resellers that really annoys me.They make bold claims but do not elaborate on the theory in a meaningful way, they expect you to part with your money and for you to trust them, for example http://www.commissionstreamer.com/.
I haven’t made $600 a day doing this, but I have just made my first $25 from my first software sale, and I have only been running with this idea for a couple of days and posted the affiliate link to just 3 websites that get a small limited amount of traffic at the moment. I say at the moment, because what I am about to explain, I expect my website statistics to rise sharply and increase sales. Some readers of this article will have been writing blogs and owned websites for years and not be making that much commission, and could be earning a lot more commission a day, simply by reading what I have to say.
This article is aimed at people who use the internet to make money, and sometimes to make money people speculate a bit of money by finding ways of attracting other people to visite their websites. There are a few ways people go about trying to get others to visit their websites. Here are the three big names on the internet, and why I prefer twitter.
Try using any popular keyword on google and it will cost you as much as £4.50 a click, even more.
Start liking people that you don’t know personally on facebook, and they think you are some kind of cyber stalker.
Twitter is a completely different mentality.
Twitter users love to be followed, every follower gained on twitter is an ego boost, many twitters are constantly hitting the refresh button to find out if they have gained and more followers since their last tweet. Like politicians each tweet is crafted by savvy twitter users to get more followers, recycling a bad knock knock joke will lose you followers instantly.
You can use the search facility on twitter to search users on twitter who use and possibly relate to that keywords that you are interested in, and unlike google it costs you nothing to try and get their attention.
Imagine you sell football accessories and you search twitter users who are tweeting about your favourite team “Manchester United” in their tweets, or you organise go karting events and you search people who have a profile description about similar things, you can start following those twitter users with your interests and introduce your business and ideas on twitter to likeminded individuals very quickly without being considered a stalker like facebook, and unlike google it won’t cost you anything.
The marvelous thing about twitter is you are limited to the amount of words that you can tweet (message) so if you start writing something interesting, readers will have to click on your weblink in your short tweet to read the rest of the information you want to tell them about on your website. You have to draw a balance between ’sales spam’ and interesting tweets, and build up a genuine following.
However if you don’t want to be sat at a computer all day following twitter, then you can automate the process, and leave software to do the following of other twitter users for you, while you are doing the housework, at the beach, doing your regular 9-5 day job.
What is even more excellent is that if you actually promote the software in this link along with your other sales offers on your website, you will not only increase your commissions for e.g. your Manchester United T-shirts, that you are promoting to Twitters who like Manchester United, but you also might get the odd sales commission gained from promoting this software. If you become a software sales affiliate it just takes two software sales to get your money back. I have had a welcome bonus of $10 for becoming a software sales affiliate, I have sold $55 worth of software getting a 50% commission, one more sale (it could be you) and I will be in profit.
I will mention that the first sale wasn’t to myself as self discounting is against the sites rules. Whether you are interest in the software resales affiliate scheme or not, everyday I am using the software to introduce other twitter users to my dating website and each member subscription on that makes me money too, and I am really glad that I am driving free twitter traffic to my website and not paying £4.50 a click on google. Whether it is Manchester United T-Shirts, Go Karting, or your tripadvisor pay per click links, something like this software that can find the thousands of twitter users that like the things your business promotes and then automate the following process on twitter so that you don’t waste your life on twitter has got to be worth having.
There is no promise that this software generate money, but it does help you automate the opportunities online at a very low cost to help you generate money without spending hours at a computer. A magnetic banner advert to go on the side of a car aimed at random passers by, might cost you £60 plus more money for the graphic design work, SEO services for you website can be expensive too and also newspaper or yellow pages subscriptions. It is all about finding value. I think this software offers the potential for a very impressive return on investment.
I hope you will use my affiliate link below to find out more, you can also test the software completely free to follow 250 people who use twitter.
The great thing about this software too, is that anyone who knows anything about twitter will know that twitter sets a limit on the amount of people that you can follow, at time of writing 2000 people, so you can use the software to automate unfollow people so that you don’t go over your twitter quota and can promote your ideas to more twitter users. The software has various options for unfollowing users, so you can limit it to only unfollow twitter users who haven’t followed your twitter account, or to stop unfollowing when the ratio of following and unfollowing improves on your twitter account.
