The Daily Routine of an Affiliate Marketing Business Owner

Running an affiliate marketing business on the internet isn’t really all that difficult. It’s certainly much easier now than in comparison to the old days when people had to use the phone, radio, TV, and print media to market their offers. However, it’s not all fun and games either. You do have to work very hard to earn money online as an affiliate marketer.

Let’s take a quick look at what a day might be like for a typical online affiliate marketing business owner that is working from home. It might go something like this…

First we’ll get the obvious things out of the way such as waking up, showering, getting ready and having breakfast. After that the computer is turned on to check email, social networking accounts, new sales, and site stats. Basically get caught up on all the stuff that happened during the night.

Now, it’s time to do some real work. Fire up your favorite keyword research tool and find some topics for a new article to submit. Article marketing is one of the promotional methods that affiliate marketers use the most because it’s free and it works.

After finding a good topic to write about, it’s time to write the article. Then, you submit it to a few of the top article directories manually. Then, rewrite it and use one of the many resources available to blast it out to hundreds of lesser directories.

Once you are done with your article marketing for the day, you should update your own blog with a new post. Any good affiliate marketing specialist knows that having a well-designed blog and keeping it updated frequently can increase sales substantially. So it’s important to do fit that into your day.

Next, you need to do your daily backlink building to help with your blogs search engine rankings and traffic. Guest posting on other peoples blogs is a great way to do this, so you start browsing around to find some good ones in your niche to write for. Then, you write a new article for at least one of them and send it over.

Better take a break now and go have some lunch. It’s never a good idea to stay glued to your computer all day without any breaks or food. Maybe go take a walk too so you can refresh your mind and body.

When that’s done there are a lot of resources to sort out. You need to check on any ads you have going out or banners you have on other sites. It’s also a good idea to look for other good advertising opportunities in your industry.

Time to get caught up on emails, social networking accounts, private messages, and check your stats again. Then, head over to a few of your regular forums to answer questions and stay up to date on what’s happening. You will also check out some of the leading blogs in your niches and read some newsletters right now to see if there are any new tips you can pick up.

There are always new things to be learned as the affiliate internet marketing industry is continuously changing. Forums, blogs, and newsletters are a great way to stay on top of it all. And helping others is a great way to build your reputation and get more sales.

Don’t forget to write an email to send your list before you quit for the day. Your newsletter needs updated frequently so you can keep the relationship with your subscribers fresh. They can be a goldmine that you don’t want to lose.

Time for supper. Then, get some more work done that you had planned for today but didn’t have time for earlier. Business never stops! Better go to bed and get some rest so you can start all over again tomorrow.

That’s what a typical day might look like for an affiliate marketing business owner. Obviously it wouldn’t be the same every day since some of this stuff only needs done every once in a while, but there are plenty of other things to take their place. Sometimes you simply won’t have enough time in the day to get everything done that you need to.

This just gives you an idea of how a dedicated affiliate marketer might spend their day. It’s definitely not something that you can just sit back and watch as the money pours in. You have to work hard every day to make it happen. If you do that success will follow!

One of the biggest problems that online marketers and anyone else with a web presence have, particularly when they are first starting out, is generating traffic without having to spend a lot of cash on it. Adwords and other Pay-per-click advertising services are often not an option when the cost-per-click is often outrageous for certain search terms, such as in the ever popular “make money online” niche. It’s just not something you should utilize if you are brand new and your money is limited. So how do you get visitors to your site without emptying your bank account on promotion? This post is going to cover a few methods that are free (or close to it) and very powerful.

After you’ve published the content simply go to social bookmarking sites to bookmark your blog. This can drive instant visitors to it. Do this with each new post you publish.

Forums are another great way to acquire no cost traffic to your web site. Nearly all forums will allow you to include a signature file where you may put a backlink(s) to your personal site. You can’t blatantly promote your site through the forum posts and you never should, but by participating in the discussions and contributing valuable content to them other members will begin to trust you over time. When you obtain a positive status at the forum they will start to follow your signature and start going to your website. This takes a lot of time but you will discover it can be more than worth it.

You don’t need a lot of cash to begin consistently driving traffic to your site and making money from it. By using articles, blogs, and forums, you can begin to see visitors at your site literally within days and at zero cost whatsoever.
