I know that many of my readers would be very happy if they could make their first affiliate sale, or a weekly sale, never mind a daily one. However, I think it is important to have the goal of making a sale every single day in mind when you are learning about affiliate marketing.
You see there is a big difference between hitting it lucky and getting a sale, and having the correct system in place to remove luck from the equation.
The truth is that everyone can make daily affiliate sales if they have a good effective system in place, that also automates the process. Making daily sales without automation is like throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping it will stick – some might, but most of it will fall!
My spaghetti sticks as you can see:
What Am I Promoting To Get Daily Sales?
I have had so many people ask me what it is that I am promoting to get daily affiliate sales that I have edited this post now to include that information.
I am very happy to say that I have earned over $1000 promoting this single product and I highly recommend it to ALL affiliates:
For those who want to promote this product as well, and take any upgrade using my link below, I will also provide the EXACT system that I use to promote it.
Why Do You Need Automation?
The simple answer to this is because you will VERY RARELY be able to be there at the right time when someone is ready to make a purchase without it.
Lets look at that for a moment…..
Purchase behaviour is dependant on so many different things being in place at the same time. A customer will have to have:
- Awareness of the product being available
- An understanding of what the product does
- A match between what the product does and a current gap or perceived gap in what they already have
- A need or wish for the product
- The belief the product will work for them
- The confidence they can or will use it
- Trust in the source of information
- A lack of alternative options
- The desire to make a purchase
- The drive or motivation to actually purchase
- The money available to purchase
- A method of purchase that they can use
- The time and focus to make the purchase
- A belief they can’t purchase at a different time/will lose the chance to buy it if they don’t do it now
Phew, thats quite a list isn’t it?
So what do you think are the chances that you just happen to send a link to the right product at the right time when all of those things are in place?
Pretty much zero is my guess.
Are you starting to understand why affiliate marketing is hard for so many people?
How Does Automation Increase The Chances of Making a Sale?
The very first thing that automated sales processes do is to filter out those people who are interested in what you have for sale, from those who have no interest in it. You don’t want to waste your precious time and resources sending information about a product to people who will never even look at what you send.
Doing this part well means you will have a smaller but much more targeted audience when you send the information out.
Next the automated system can send out small manageable chunks of information over time. This helps to build up a fuller picture and understanding of the product in the customers mind. It also helps to build your relationship with that customer.
Very few purchases are made on impulse now, and customers like to have time to think about something, and often research the product before they buy it as well. This is especially true if funds may be limited.
As the automated system sends information that increases knowledge and desire for the product over time, this also allows the customer to have the space they need to consider it fully.
Many people also need the time to save funds to make a purchase, especially if it is of higher cost than they can spare at the moment they see it too.
Basically automation means that you do not have to try and be there at the right moment for the customer to have the time and focus to look at what you are sending. Your timeline does not allow for differences with your customers timeline, but automation can work for you while you are doing other things (or sleeping).
