Just a quick post to highlight something I have noticed recently regarding affiliates promoting products.
It seems to me the ones who are having the most success are those who invest a huge amount of effort in their bonuses.
In the past, it seemed all you needed to do was give away a couple of free reports or an ebook and it would be enough of a bonus to warrant a sale.
That has certainly changed.
3 things which now seem compulsory for affiliate marketers especially on bigger product launches are…
1) Making the bonus relevant and complementary to the main product.
2) The cumulative value of the bonuses needs to be higher than the main product.
3) The marketing of the bonuses needs to be as effective as that of the main product.
I can understand why this has become the case because whenever a big product launch gets underway potential customers will be receiving numerous marketing emails from many different affiliates.
The question for affiliates to ask themselves must be,
‘How can I stand out from the crowd?’
Making great promotional material such as high converting emails might be one idea, but the impact of having a spectacular bonus offer must surely be significant.
Looking a some of the recent affiliate leaderboards for these launches it is clear that bonuses contribute greatly to an affiliate’s success.
The affiliates at the top tend to be those who have made the effort to produce a spectacular bonus package often worth a lot more than the price of the main product.
So the lesson when considering affiliate marketing is to make your bonus the best and most valuable it can possibly be and maybe you will see your name at the top of the affiliate leaderboard.
