#Affiliates Working With Merchants For Their Home Business Profitability
Updated 10th February
Affiliates contacting the merchant of their interested program is an ideal way to increase their sales, which can save them a lot of time and heartache. Once you contact the merchant, be sure to let them know what you are doing to promote their products, and ask for their advice when it comes to marketing.
The merchant will know the product the best, and they will have a good idea of the strategies that are being used by other affiliates to make sales. By contacting the merchant, you’ll also show them that you are dedicated to succeeding with affiliate marketing.
Contacting the merchant also shows your enthusiasm for marketing their products and services. Any merchant who knows affiliate marketing also knows that over 90% of sales are generated by less than 5% of the affiliates. Good merchants recognize your efforts and provide you with information and resources and may even boost your commission rates!
Dealing With Merchants
If you email a merchant and they don’t respond, try again. If they still aren’t responding, you should think again about continuing the partnership, as a lack of communication can indicate other problems as well – such as payment.
Keep in mind that many merchants make big promises and set a high payout rate knowing that very few affiliates will actually meet it. This isn’t a good way to do business, and you should avoid working with these types of merchants.
Communication Between Affiliates And Merchants
When you communicate with merchants, you should ensure that you use a professional tone. If you have suggestions of how a merchant can improve their offers, you should let them know. Many merchants appreciate feedback, and know that any feedback they receive can improve their programs. Although not always possible a 24/7 communicating dialogue is always the best policy.
Wise merchants always understand that good affiliates are hard to find and will treat them with respect, assist with resources, and be prompt with payments. Wise affiliates are the same way, and understand that merchants want quality promotion and sales performance.
To get the most out of your partnership, you should always be professional and understanding with your merchant. Good merchants are always busy, which may make them seem like they aren’t that good. They will answer your questions and emails, although it may take them a little bit of time.
The longer you work with a merchant, the more you’ll understand how they do things. If you are just starting out in affiliate marketing, a merchant can help you understand how things work. If you listen to them and show initiative, you’ll be well on your way to making it to the top.
To get you started building your online home business and entering the world of affiliate marketing you are going to need an online platform to work with – a website, a hosting service for the site and most of all know how to go about building an online business. If you don’t have this expertise or training you might as well not start at all because right from day one you are going to be at a huge disadvantage.
There are many online companies who will supply all of the above criteria but at a cost. Can you afford these start-up costs must be the first question you ask yourself? The next question should be can I get what I need on the cheap or for as little as possible? And last but by no means least. Is there anyway I can get it for nothing because I don’t have much spare cash anyway?
I asked myself these same three questions last year when a friend told me about an online opportunity I might be interested in. But then this friend said it wont cost you anything to become a Starter Member and you get two free websites and the company will host them free as well. I’m telling you right now I couldn’t get the name of this company out off him fast enough. It seemed a bit too good to be true but after I did a wee bit of online research about the company I could find nothing but good said about it.
What is the name of this company I hear you ask? Its called Wealthy Affiliate and everything about it I found out from my friend and my own research has proven to be 100% true. It will cost you nothing to join. They will give you two free websites and host them for you free as well and the training is second to none with over 500 videos, online classrooms you can go into if and when you ever get stuck, an online 24/7 live chat facility, private messaging, thousands of fellow members you can turn to for help. The list just goes on and on.
