EBay classified ads are one of the most overlooked marketing methods for affiliates. This method is powerful, because it harnesses the power of eBay to bring you not only visitors, but visitors who will likely spend money with you.
Feel free to use other social networks for marketing purposes. If you’re comfortable with LinkedIn, Twitter, or any other network, figure out a way to use it tastefully and legitimately for your promotions.
The numbers: Mass Mailings are deemed successful with a 1-2% Response Rate. If a personal letter is done right, a 10-20% sales rate (not Response Rate!) can be achieved!
Affiliate Marketing – This is a method where you sell products and earn a commission from the sales. This can include EBooks, software, or even physical products. You will have to have a place to promote the products, i.e. a website, a blog, etc., but many have started out by promoting on Jiji websites such as Backpage or Craig’s List.
Go viral! Virus is a disease that spreads fast. Like the internet virus, you can spread word about your business like wildfire! First create a document or a fascinating video clip of your business. Upload this on the internet and forward it to your friends. If you have a website, include the link in the email you are forwarding. Ask your friends to pass it on to their friends. This can go on and on and pretty soon you will have a stream of free traffic to your website. This also generates a number of leads you can use to follow up on potential customers.
A lot of people think that powersellers have some access to resources that only the special, or the elite have access to.. well guess what, some do! But a lot don’t. I know you are thinking, next the author is going to talk about Dropshipping. Guess what, you’re 100% wrong!
I am not a fan of online classifieds. I think they get lost on the websites which they are displayed. For this reason, I recommend Print. If you find a classified online Forum or Service or Directory you like, the downside is you have to resubmit the Ad daily to keep visibility.
Do you see the same advertisements multiple times? This is a good sign that the advertiser is getting a good response. One way to be sure is to contact the advertiser and simply ask.
Free Classified Advertising – Although using free classifieds is not the best of the internet advertising solutions it can still bring you some traffic. The only problem is that classified ads expire as where articles never go away and forum posts get archived so they are always out there in a searchable way as well. However, classifieds can bring you a quick boost of traffic and there are some marketers that swear by them.
