The Key To High-Volume Web Sales


The quickest way to achieve high-volume saleson the web is to set up your own affiliate program.

There are two ways to set up an affiliate program: youcan install affiliate tracking software on your serveror you can use a 3rd party affiliate tracker.

Here is a list of sites that offer affiliate tracking software:http://www.ezine-writer.com/affiliatesoftware.html

For most people, a much easier option is to use 3rdparty (or web-based) affiliate tracking.

There are literally dozens of web-based affiliate managementservices. Some have setup fees, some have monthly fees andothers charge monthly commissions on your sales.

Here is a list of 3rd party affiliate trackers:http://www.ezine-writer.com/3rdpartyaffiliate.html

One of the most popular 3rd party affiliate trackersis ClickBank (http://www.clickbank.com).

Compared to some other affiliate programs, ClickBank'ssystem is quite basic - for example they only offer one-tieraffiliate tracking and they don't provide click-thru stats.

But the one big advantage of ClickBank is they arewidely used (by over 10,000 merchants) and trusted - and that means your customers will feel safer whenordering your products.

Here are some of the features of the ClickBankaffiliate program:

=> one time setup fee of $49

=> no monthly fees

=> 7.5% commission on your sales

=> automatic email (to you and your affiliates) every

time you make a sale

=> ClickBank issues checks to your affiliates

=> checks issued every 2 weeks

=> low minimum ($5) before a check is issued

One drawback to using ClickBank is that the linksyour affiliates post on their websites won't containyour domain name - so they won't increase yourlink popularity.

But there is a way around this - a script specificallydesigned for ClickBank merchants that generates URLsfor your affiliates, based on your domain name:http://www.easybiztools.com

With this script, your ClickBank affiliates would use a linkthat looks like this:http://www.yoursite.com/sales.php?offer=nickname&pid=1

Once you have your affiliate program set up, you'llneed some promotion tools to offer your affiliates.

Here are some ideas:

=> free eBook - this could be as little as 5 or 10pages explaining the benefits of your product orservice. Make sure it contains some valuable tipsand include links to your website that your affiliatescan customize with their own affiliate link.

=> your own articles - if you write free articles,encourage your affiliates to use them in theirnewsletter and on the website, with their affiliatelink in the resource box.

=> ezine ads - offer your affiliates 30-word ads theycan place in newsletters (preferably ads you havetested and found to be effective)

=> email course - if you have an email mini-course,allow your affiliates to offer it from their website,with their affiliate links

=> popups - give your affiliates a template popup fortheir website, with instructions on how to install it

=> affiliate kit - put all your affiliate tools intoan eBook that your affiliates can download

That's it! All the information you need to set up your ownaffiliate program.
