How To Be a Good Affiliate
Here at TrafficWave.net, we are excited to have you join us in spreading the word via Affiliate Marketing. We love helping businesses grow with the power of email marketing. As an Affiliate, you can show businesses around the world how to use email marketing to build their prospect lists, communicate with those prospects, and convert prospects in to customers.
When you introduce businesses to our service, and they begin using TrafficWave.net, you can earn commissions as indicated in our affiliate plan description. And if those referrals decide they want to refer others, you can earn on those sales, too.
So let’s talk about how to be a good affiliate with TrafficWave.net so you can see how to build your business strong with us.
One of the first things I always recommend is that you actually use these tools to build, manage, and profit from your lists in whatever your primary business may be. Nothing motivates success more than actual success. When you are using these tools in your own business, it is much easier to show others how to do the same.
Now, if you do not have a business separate from being an Affiliate of TrafficWave.net, that’s perfectly fine. It simply means your business is “email marketing” and you refer other businesses to TrafficWave.net as an Affiliate. That’s really what “affiliate marketing” is all about. Show businesses how to win with TrafficWave.net. You will win in the process.
I highly recommend doing a few things consistently:
- COMMUNICATE with your referrals! Among the complaints I hear from new referrals, the most common is, “I never hear from my sponsor”. In your back office, in the Affiliate Manager section, we have a link titled “Email Referrals”. This is a simple way for you to welcome your referrals, encourage them, share your experiences, invite them to our webinars, etc…You can share tips and celebrate the success of your team members. Success is a great motivator. As your team sees other members succeeding, they will be more motivated to begin following the example you are setting.
- DEMONSTRATE your list building. One of the things that confuses me is how some folks join us to become affiliates to offer email marketing to businesses but they are not using email marketing themselves. One one side, I try to imagine how someone plans to sell something they are not using. And on the other side, it really just makes sense to use your account to build and manage your own lists. Your campaigns can be dedicated to showing businesses how to use TrafficWave.net to build their business. While USING these tools, you will also be building your own success story to share with your prospects. And remember: STORIES SELL!
- REPEAT Steps 1 and 2. It really is that simple. If you are effectively using these tools, you are building your own lists. As you demonstrate your proficiency and share your success with your prospects, those business owners are going to want to do what you are doing. It really just makes sense.
Credibility is a huge factor in business success. We build our credibility by DOING. So, be sure you are doing the things we talk about in our training emails and our regular webinars. Support your team while showing them how to do what you are doing. Then SHARE your results with your prospects and show them how to do the same.
I see a lot of Affiliates get caught up solely in trying to refer others. They spend no time teaching their referrals and then they wonder why their referrals don’t stick around. Imagine how much more dedicated your referrals will be when you are showing them how to get real results with their email marketing.
Frankly, if they never referred anyone but got good results using our tools, you would have a strong customer base.
Think about this:
A customer that signs up with TrafficWave.net and uses our system will spend just $17.95 per month. So when we are talking to businesses, “budget” isn’t really a part of the conversation. Show them how to use this powerful tool to generate hundreds or even thousands of dollars in new and repeat business with this tool. They will be your customers for life!
And some of those customers will want to become an Affiliate with you and refer other businesses. That is when your business really begins to grow. You can literally build a global business from your computer by following these simple steps.
So if you are brand new to all of this, it just makes sense to spend some time in your back office, reviewing our training videos, and reviewing our training articles. The better you become at using this system, the easier it will be to bring on new customers. As your team grows, you can show them how to do the same.
The end result: Your TrafficWave.net Income Grows!
