Motivating Affiliates To Sell Your Products

You may have noticed that it is often difficult to get affiliates to market your products. If you ask them why, they'll come up with a bunch of excuses. Let's face it, everyone has too much to do on the Internet. Everything else is competing with you for their time, and not just other money-making programs.

Jimmy D. Brown, one of the top gurus on the Web, does some smart things to get his affiliates to do his bidding. Here are 3 that will help get your affiliates to start selling quickly:

Give Them A Reason To Act Quickly And Give Them A Reason To Sell Now

First, give them a reason to do it now. You do that by establishing an event which includes a deadline. For example, you can do any of the following:

1. Create a product introduction. 2. Have a close out. 3. Create a contest. 4. Create a special offering. 5. Declare limited supply of product. 6. Modify your offer.

Doing all of these should create some excitement about your product. Just make sure that your offer is compelling so that they wouldn't want to miss out on it. This gives your affiliates a reason to act quickly.

Next, establish a deadline or closing-date. This is what will get your folks to make sales now.

Make It Easy For Affiliates

The third thing you need to do is to give your people all of the information they need to be successful. You do that by giving them everything they need to sell your product.

Some of the collateral you can provide to help your people be successful, are:

1. Advertisements for your product. 2. Banner ads. 3. Text ads. 4. Product Testimonials.

You want to make it a turn-key system that they can put up in a few minutes. If they have to do a lot of work, they will not do it. If someone else offers them an easier way to get started selling their products, then they will sell those instead of yours.

So always keep in mind that you want to make it as easy as possible for them to sell your products to their customers. The easier you make it for them, the faster they will promote your product
