Summary:
If you are trying to sell a product or service on the Internet, then you
are probably doing so through an affiliate program. You signed up as an
affiliate (usually for free) and they gave you an affiliate ID (user name
or number). They may have even given you a basic marketing package which
includes text ads, banner ads, and solo ads with a link to your affiliate
sales page. All you have to do is use these tools to get traffic to your
affiliate sales page.

Article Body:
If you are trying to sell a product or service on the Internet, then you
are probably doing so through an affiliate program. You signed up as an
affiliate (usually for free) and they gave you an affiliate ID (user name
or number). They may have even given you a basic marketing package which
includes text ads, banner ads, and solo ads with a link to your affiliate
sales page. All you have to do is use these tools to get traffic to your
affiliate sales page.

Well that sounds pretty easy, doesn't it? This process actually works
too, except that your probability of converting your traffic into sales
is very, very, very low. In other words, you may have to have thousands
of people to visit your affiliate sales page before you ever see your
first sell. Now those aren't very good odds, are they?

Unfortunately, that is what most people do. They spend a lot of time,
effort, and money getting all of those people to that affiliate sales
page and then they finally make a sale and earn a referral fee or
commission. But wait, it can get even worse. Let's say that you made one
sale and earned a $10 commission. That's great, right? Well not really,
because in the terms and conditions of your affiliate program, you don't
actually get paid until you have accumulated at least $20 of commissions.
So get back to it and get another sale and finally get paid. Good grief!

Don't quit! Internet marketing is a great way to make extra money, but
you have to know some of the secrets. Here's one. "Don't advertise your
affiliate program directly." You must use a four step process.

Four Step Process

1. First, you must provide something of value. The easiest valuable thing
that you can give away is information. An informative email course,
special report, or ebook are all great ways to give away free
information.
2. This step goes along with the initial step above. Don't give away your
free information until you get an email address. You must capture the
name and email address of your prospective sale in order to be able to
implement the next step.

3. If the information that you are providing is good and helps people,
then you will earn some trust. If someone gives you some information that
saves you time, money, or effort; then you are going to closely read
anything that they send you - as long as the information is still
valuable. This is why it is so important that you get that name and email
address before you start giving away your information. Now you can keep
the information flowing through an occasional email to your prospect.

4. Finally, if you have been providing valuable information and earning
trust from people, it is much more likely that they will buy something
that you recommend. This is especially true if you can convince them that
what you are recommending will help them and that it is worth their
money. The easiest way to do this is to recommend something that you have
actually purchased and use yourself. Just tell them how it helped you and
why you think that it was worth what you paid for it!
