The real work starts after you get in. You need converting web traffic to make it work. Do you have a strategy for getting people to the offers? Do you have a large email list that can be traffic on demand?
When you get into an affiliate program, you first thought is probably going to be to look at the graphic banner ads. This is what you are use to seeing on websites when people are trying to sell something. How do the banner ads look? Do they look professional or do they look like someone opened up microsoft paint and cranked out an ad in about 2 minutes?

There are a lot of different kinds of ways to promote your offers. People are always trying to come up with new ways that are effective at getting people to take the offers. Banner ads, text ads, popups and more are being used to get new conversions. Now a new way to get conversions is the use of content lockers. Content lockers are just what they sound like. A content locker is piece of software that you install on your website that blocks the content until a task is performed. Your content needs to be worth someone going the extra mile to get it.
Popups and Pop Under Ads
Have you ever visited a website and then closed down your internet browser to see that there are other windows open? You didn’t open anything, but they just appeared automatically. These were probably pop up or pop under ads that launched when you visited a website. Now you are on the other side of the table as an affiliate and you might be using popups and pop unders to get income.
Text link ads
Banner ads are common online and people might get tired of looking at them. Text link ads are a way to market your products and services without the in your face tactics of banner ads. People might be more willing to click on a link that has text that they are interested in. Text links get your to the same place that the banner ads go, but in an unassuming manner. People expect to see links in the content that they read and they don’t automatically think that an ad is on the other side of the link.
These are just a few tools that you can use to get started with affiliate marketing.
