Affiliate marketer has every reason to be happy about his work. Spell: profits. Let me walk you through a day in the life of internet marketer. More particular, the affiliate marketer’s life. Is it easy? You decide. But is it lucrative? Yes, it is.
Another Day for an Affiliate Marketer
Marketing is much easier today than, say, two decades ago. Back then, you only have your telephones. Email was just beginning to become a medium. But only those who have computers cared to learn about them. Today, Internet makes it way easier. In the life of an affiliate marketer, each day runs quickly. Of course, his life depends on the Internet. And you can’t expect it to be slow.
Upon waking up, an affiliate marketer would open his computer. He turns on the Wi-Fi, too, if it’s still turned off. He opens windows and let the computer run. While waiting, he would brush his teeth and change.
He would go back to his computer chair. Check his email. Look for updates. He would look at the website design. Does it need change? In affiliate marketing, your customers’ impression on your website is very crucial. If it needs revision, the affiliate marketer has to re-design it. If he can’t do it by himself, he would have to find someone who can do it quickly and efficiently.
Next, he would check the affiliate programs. He will then submit the programs to directories which lists them. Why submit your affiliate programs to these directories? Because they are a great way to promote products and attract people.
He would then check his sales. Tracking mails and phone orders are part of the busy day. Track the new clicks on the website. Are there new visitors?
He would then check his resources. To ensure more sales, he would check out his ads. Is he making the most of his ad spaces?
He would then go back to his email. Are there questions from customers? Are there queries from prospective buyers? He needs to answer them all. In affiliate marketing, you can’t leave your customers hanging.
After this, he would look at his newsletters. He would take a look at his eZines. Does he have new ideas for the next issues? He has to be updated with trends, news and other important matters. He could write about this and distribute through his opt in list. His new and old customers would appreciate that they are being informed on these matters.
Has he updated his blog? Oh, he has to eat lunch. But he’ll just eat later. He has to make sure his post goes out well on search engines so he can drive more people to his site.
Does he have time to start writing for the newsletter? He’ll find some. It’s a busy day but it was all worth it. How much did he earn today? He can’t wipe the smile off his face for a reason.
