Affiliate Summit West 2011 Day 3

Day three at Affiliate Summit West 2011 was a great day. I started off the day with some coffee and decided to hang out with Luke Smith from Motive Interactive. Around 10am the exhibit hall?opened?up. Luke and I stopped by several booths and entered several contests wish us luck winning Ipads. After the exhibit hall I decided to go to the “Are You Buyers Mobile, Yet?” session. In this session they talked about how using services such a appmakr allow pretty much any business can make an app. Also how paypal and other merchants are making it easier for you to make purchases for pretty much anything using your phone to pay for food,clothes,apps etc. I'ts going to change the way we use our phones.

As I was leaving for lunch I ran into Shawn Collins Founder & Owner of Affiliate Summit. If you have never been to any of the Affiliate Summit events you should?defiantly?go to ASE in New York this summer.

Things Affiliate Marketers Are Doing Wrong

Affiliate Marketers Your Doing it Wrong!As you all know Affiliate Marketing is never easy.Recently many new affiliate Marketers have arrived on the scene.They come into believing that setting up a landing page along side with a few thousand dollars will make them successful. The chances of that happening is very slim. Many affiliate Marketers inquire about how to get traffic to their sites & how to get better conversions. The answer is “Stat's Via Tracking 202.”

The main problem is that they don't know the keywords and what to expect in the way of profits. Tracking 202 provides all of the answers when it comes to stat's. Those who do PPC without Tracking 202 are at a disadvantage because the advertiser can see all the key words the affiliate marketer is bidding on and basic-ley won't need the affiliate marketer. As a result, the advertiser will pull the offer from the network being utilised.

Another key problem is that new affiliate marketers believe they can set up a site and become momentarily successful ( “I thought so, too!”)it is important to use money from the ads on your website to invest that money back into your site's for example hosting costs. Also new affiliate marketers give up too quickly. It is a long hard process & patience is required. Working in the online business is tough & takes quite a bit of discipline. Actually, it is not for everyone however, it does pay off in the long run. The word “perseverance” comes to mind.
