When you create a product online for sale you basically have two courses of action that you can follow.
You can first of all look at doing all the promotion yourself and keep all the commissions for yourself, or you could get together an army of affiliates to do the work for you.
If you want to get out of the trenches and command an army of affiliates you will make more money long term as you will have people promoting your site for you and when you leverage the power of other people like this and scale things up it can be very lucrative for you.
The trouble is all your efforts may have gone into creating your product and now you have to go and find the affiliates. The following are some tips that will help you find these people and get them promoting for you.
The first thing to do is to make sure your product is listed in a market place like Clickbank or PaydotCom where affiliates can get access to your product in order to promote it.
You will then need to make sure that you have an affiliate page where you will have affiliate tools for them to use. Affiliates are far more likely to promote our product if you give them the tools straight up in order to do so. These tools will include things like graphics where they can put their affiliate links and reviews that they can post on their blogs. You could also look at giving them keywords they can use in their articles or adwords campaigns.
If you want to gather a team of affiliates to help you with your product you will also need to go hunting for them and there are a variety of methods you can use to help you with this.
Having the right affiliates on board though can literally mean the difference between success and failure online. While they are busy selling your product you will be able to go about creating new products and can be expanding your business.
