Having the best looking site offering outstanding value products is worthless if your potential customers don't get to see it. I know I am stating the obvious, but this critical fact is often overlooked.
Promoting Your Site To Potential Customers
Two obvious methods of promoting your affiliate links are using mailing lists and ezine advertising. There are many other ways in which you can attract visitors (traffic) to your site. However, one of the most effective and often neglected ways is to submit good quality articles with original content to article directories.
Write a short article (300 - 700 words) relating to your niche and include a link back to your site in the resource box. All good article directories provide a resource box at the end of the article where the author can provide details relating to his product or services with a link back to their website.
Tip: Do not blatantly try to sell or promote affiliate links as your article will almost certainly be rejected!
Submit your article to some of the many article directory sites that accept articles for free publication. Just sign up for free membership by providing some basic personal details, such as your name and e-mail address.
This is a very effective way to generate traffic to your site. Article directories are websites that specialize in publishing articles that are submitted to them from anyone who wishes to do so, subject to their editorial guidelines.
Some directories specialize and only accept articles on a single specific subject such as health or employment etc. The majority of article directories are general in nature, but segment their directories into numerous categories.
The best article directories are very easy to use and provide members with a lot of help in the form of online tutorials and help screens. Even if you have never written or submitted an article before you will find the process quite straight forward.
A good idea is to get some help in the form of step by step instructions and coaching videos designed specifically for newbies.
