Building Your #AffiliateMarketing Assets (www.berlin-training.eu)

LEMPtraining_Affiliate_Marketing
One of the biggest mistakes made by affiliate marketers when they first set up is failing to recognise that they are actually starting a #business. Consequently if you want to be #successful you need to have the right #mindset and #manage your business accordingly, not doing this is the one of the fastest roads to failure. (C) Alexandre Chambon

If you look at it from another #perspective you are establishing a #marketing company and your #websites and affiliate links are your assets which you can build to be as big as you want, you are only limited by your #time and #imagination.
There are a few steps you can take which makes you stand out from the crowd and avoid the stamp of being a “newbie” or unprofessional.

Step 1: Websites and domains

It’s important to have your own domain(s) and website(s) for several reasons. One is that you have complete control over what you choose to #promote, and what #ads and #banners you want to put on your site. You can create an eye-catching #professional #layout or have someone do it for you if that is beyond the scope of your abilities.

Secondly you are able to have your own #personalized email and you appear far more professional when you have your own domain, as opposed to having freebie hosting without a decent or keyword enhanced name. An extra #benefit is that your website and domain are assets that can be sold down the track if you choose and if you have developed them properly. You can buy a domain for around $10 and monthly hosting can start as low as $6.00 per month, so it’s well worth the small #investment.

Step 2: List building

All marketers know you need to get #traffic to your website, to click on your banners and ads to make money, no clicks – no sales. But getting traffic can be #hard work. Even when you get visitors to your site you generally only have one shot at nailing their business. What you need to do is build up a #customer list so you can get repeat visitors. You can do this by creating a signup form on your website for your #newsletter or offering a free downloadable gift or service in return for your visitor subscribing to your list. Once you have established a list you can email your customers with your offers and promotions on an ongoing basis.

Don’t just contact your list when you are selling something, try and share useful #information or advice, try and build trust so your customers will know to value what you are offering them, and buy from you when you do have a promotion. It is generally accepted that your list has a value of $1 per customer, so again another asset to nurture and build.

Step 3: Traffic

The lifeblood of affiliate marketing is traffic, but not everyone can get on the front page of #Google so where else are you going to get traffic? Unless you want to pay for it and that can be very costly.

A few methods you can explore are: writing articles, press releases, posting in forums, commenting or guest posting on #blogs, offline #advertising, and classified ads.

You don’t have to do everything at once, start off with one, master it then move on to another. It’s important to test your results, check to see which #method is most #effective and keep doing that.

Having an affiliate marketing business is all about repeating systems that work, so just make sure you develop a system first, then rinse and repeating the methods that work for you.

5 Easy Ways To Get Your #Creative Juices Going

Berlin Training
#Writing an article doesn’t just mean putting down thoughts into words then typing and writing it. You have to capture the interest of your #readers and get them to keep on reading. To send your message across you have to get the attention of the reader and have a firm grasp of their interest and pique their #curiosity.

The main ingredient in baking up an article is a large dose of creativity. While creativity may come #natural to many people, some just gets into a block or something to that effect that can drive someone crazy. Many writers have literally torn their hair out when they get writers block and just can’t seem to get their #creativejuicesflowing.

Putting words into images in the readers mind is an art. A clear and crisp #depiction requires a certain flair that only creativity can provide. Similes and metaphors help a lot, but the way an article gets entwined word for word, sentence by sentence then paragraph by paragraph into a whole article develops the essence of the article.

So just what do you have to do when nothing comes to mind? There is no surefire ways to get the perfect ideas but there are easy ways to get your creative juices flowing. No one can guarantee you of having the perfect #mindset but many methods may aid you in achieving that state of mind. Here are five easy ways for that.

1) Keep a diary or a #journal with you always. Ideas can be triggered by anything you may hear, see, or smell. Your senses are your radar in finding great ideas. Write all of them into a journal and keep it with you for #future reference. You may also write down anything that you have read or heard, someone’s ideas could be used to develop your own ideas and this is not stealing. Remember that ideas and creativity can come from anywhere; it’s the #development of the idea that makes it unique.

2) Relax and take time to sort things out. A jumbled mind cannot create any space for new #ideas. Everyone must have a clear mind if one wishes to have their creativity in full speed. Get rid of all obstacles that can be a hindrance to your creativity. If you are bothered by something, you cannot force your mind to stay focused.

Try to relax every time that you can and think about your #experiences and #interactions with others. Your experiences are what shape your mindset and your opinions which could be reflected on your writings. Try to #discover yourself, find out what triggers your emotions. Discover what inspires you and what ticks you off. You can use these emotions to help you in expressing yourself and your ideas, with this you can grow creatively.

3) Create a working place that can inspire your #creativeness. Your working place can be quite a hindrance if it doesn’t make you feel #happy or #relaxed. Creativity comes from being in a good state of mind and a messed up #workplace that causes distraction won’t be conducive in firing up your creative flow.

Surround your working place with objects that makes you happy and relaxed. You may put up pictures, or scents, objects that #inspire, or anything that can get your creativeness cranking. A clean and well #organized workplace also rids of distractions and unwanted hindrances. With a good working place, you can work in peace and never notice the time pass by.

4) Set the mood. Setting the mood requires you to just go with the moment or to induce your self to feeling what makes your mind works best. Finding out what makes you tick could help you find ways to get your creative juices flowing. Set the pace and tempo for your mood and everything else will follow.

There are many ways to set the mood. Some writers have been known to use alcohol, a little sip of wine to stir up the imagination. Some would like some mood music while others let the lighting of the #environment create the mood.

5) Go on a #getaway and just do something unlike crazy. Letting yourself go and have #fun produces #adrenaline that can make your #imagination go wild. Take an #adventure or a solemn hike. Whatever it is that is unusual from your daily routine can take the rut out of your schedule. In no time at all, your creativeness will make use of that experience and get your imagination to go on overdrive.
