Many people have even given up and called this money spinning business a scam. For you to be successful in affiliate marketing you need to work hard, be patient and persistent and with time your money will start flowing in. I have written down the top strategies you should consider as an affiliate marketer and which will help you to increase your affiliate marketing sales.

Always Mask Your Affiliate Link:

Your clients and customers are tired of seeing that long ugly looking link. People are smart these days and there is also a high probability that they will not click your link. It is better for you to shorten it by using TinyURL.com or using a PHP redirect. Apart from the fact that you'll generate more sales if you cloak your affiliate link there is also another reason you need to cloak your affiliate link:

LINK THEFT – Affiliate thieves can click your link and find out an absolutely new product by your referral, and then sign up for the affiliate program, clear all cookies, and replace your Affiliate ID with theirs. Then these scammers will go on and purchase the product and get the commission. So do not ever forget to cloak your affiliate link so you can protect your affiliate commission.

Master Article Marketing

Article marketing is one of the greatest marketing technique, it is one of the trusted and confirmed way of generating more sales in Affiliate marketing, but the super Affiliates will not tell you about this. Well, this is how it works. If you are marketing a particular product, write articles that relate to the product or service you are marketing and submit them to good article directories like EzineArticles and ArticlesBase with your affiliate link in the resource box.

When writing these articles always put your readers in suspense so after they finish reading your article they will be eager to click your link to find out more about the product. For example if your product is about tennis balls, you can write articles on tennis racks or how to be a better tennis player. Do not write irrelevant articles on how to win soccer games or how to buy basketball shoes. When you have written these articles on one specific topic your readers will consider you as an expert in the subject and be willing to spend money on additional information of the product.

Promote Products Related To Your Blog Title

If you have a blog or website then you are of an advantage in making more sales because your blog can also be a marketing tool. But always remember to promote only products that are related to the topic of your blog or your websites content. This can be achieved by writing articles about the product on your blog and also displaying the products banner. But do not go too far and cover the pages of your blog with banners of different products because your potential clients will get confused and may leave your site.

It is always better to promote one product on a blog. You can also start an opt-in email list to send emails to your potential clients, which is a good chance to recommend the product with a link to your site or the affiliate product. Hurry up and start using all these techniques I listed above and I confirm you, you will see an improve in your affiliate marketing sales.
