4 Tips to Promote Affiliate Income Through Amazon

4 Tips to Promote Affiliate Income Through Amazon

Times are such that earning a single income is not always going to take care of the bills, let alone allow a person to feel financially free. Being productive nowadays dictates that you have some sort of cash influx, even passively. Starting your own business, taking care of a family or even kicking off a hobby would be a lot easier if you just had extra side income to fuel your desires. Passive income has become vital in any household, which is why this article is keyed around providing 4 Tips to Promote Affiliate Income through Amazon on an offline and online basis.

Choose a Specific Set of products to Promote

Selling to a target market that caters to “everyone” is difficult since you have literally millions of products available. If you’re able to find a sub niche, for example home fitness workout programs, you easily establish the kind of people you can pose a sales pitch to and there’s a better chance of you making a sale to that targeted audience. The point here is to be specific rather than a general with your sales. If people find you as the “specialist” for a specific idea or product, you’ll become the go-to person; the products you promote are what people will be interested in and the money willing to be invested will most likely be invested in what you have to offer.

Create a Landing Page Website for Your Products

You want both online and offline clients to visit a page that sums up everything you have to offer and how it’s going to help them be productive. The key with landing pages is to never over-sell the product. People don’t want to feel as though all you care about is their money, so tell them how this product will change their lives and promote productivity and you’ll find positive feedback and possible word-of-mouth promotions. Always include real and true reviews to your client: the more trustworthy details you provide, the likelier you are to succeed with selling online, especially as an Amazon Affiliate.

Sell Both Online and Offline

You don’t have to sell online; think of having your own private business and Amazon as your supplier. Promote your business in your area/community, buy the products you wish to sell to people who are interested, and then sell to them at a good profit. In cases of investing capital, it’s best you take deposits from your clients to cover your costs. You could use software like pricealertpro and so on to find the best prices for products on Amazon, which makes it much more feasible for you. Create a business plan for both scenarios and do your best to stick with it, then set a goal for yourself and work towards accomplishing that goal every month.

Focus on Customer Care Over Sales

The best sort of growth in any business begins and ends with satisfied clients. If you focus on delivering the best sort of products efficiently, it’s likely you’ll form a group of loyal clients as well as garner some praise for good service. Amazon is simply massive, find a supplier you trust and believe will deliver efficiently. Finally, always provide quality support for your customers, be it telephonically or email, it’s pivotal to running any business. In any online venture, offering support should be a prerequisite when launching.

Being an Amazon Affiliate can be very profitable: many people make a solid living via Amazon and it’s what allows these folks to live a lot more productively. You may need to invest time and energy but it’s a productive step towards financial stability and freedom to live according to your own expectations.

How to Use Credit Cards While Staying Out of Debt

How to Use Credit Cards While Staying Out of Debt

Many people will suggest that the best thing to do with your credit cards during these tough economic times is to cut them up with a pair of scissors. Indeed, if you are already in huge debt, you probably should stop using them and begin a payback strategy immediately. However, if you are not currently in trouble with your credit cards, there are wise ways to use them.

I happen to really love my credit cards so I will share with you my approach to how I use mine without getting into deep financial trouble.

Ever since about 1983 when I got my first Visa card, I continue to charge as many of my purchases as possible on credit. Everything from gas, groceries and monthly payments for services like my cable and home security monitoring are charged on credit. Despite my heavy usage, I have maintained the joy of never paying any interest fees at all on any of my credit cards.

Here are some tips on how best to use your credit cards without falling into the trap of paying those nasty double-digit interest fees.

Do Not Treat Credit Cards as Your Funding Sources

Too many people treat their credit cards as funding sources for major purchases. Do not do this if you want to stay out of trouble. I use my credit cards as convenient financial instruments so I do not have to carry around much cash. In fact, I hate carrying cash, especially coins. When you buy things on credit, the purchases are clean and you will not get annoying coins back as change.

I do not rely on my Visa, MasterCard or American Express to fund any of my purchases, large or small. This brings me to my golden rule when it comes to whether I will pull out any of my credit cards either at a retail or online store.

I never purchase anything with my credit cards if I do not have the actual cash on hand in my bank account.

If I really cannot pay for the item or service with cash that I already have at the bank, then I simply will not make the purchase. Remember, my credit cards are not used as funding sources. They are just convenient alternatives to actual cash in my pocket.

Make Sure to Always Pay Off Balances in Full Each Month

The next very important part of my overall strategy is to make absolutely sure that I pay the balances in full each and every month no matter how large they are. This should never be a problem if the cash has been budgeted for my purchases and secured in the bank. I have always paid my full balances each month ever since my very first credit card and this is why I never pay interest charges.

Using Credit Cards with Rewards

Most of my credit cards are of the “no annual fees” type, including one MasterCard on a separate account I keep at home as a spare in case I lose my wallet or incur any fraudulent charges. However, I do use a main Visa card which does have an annual fee because all purchases on that card reward me with airline frequent flyer points. For me, the annual fee is worth it since I do travel and I get enough points to redeem many free flights.

You have to decide for yourself if you will charge enough purchases on credit each year without paying interest charges to warrant a credit card that rewards you with airline points (or other rewards). In my case, the answer is “yes” but that might not be the case for you.

I occasionally use a MasterCard or American Express card on small purchases just to keep those accounts active. Also, I have been to the odd retailer that accepted only a certain type of credit card, so I find that having one from each major company is quite handy. Aside from my main Visa card which earns the airline points, the rest of my cards are of the “no annual fees” variety.

So this is how I use my credit cards without getting into any financial trouble with them. This strategy is recommended only if you are not in debt, of course. In fact, it is worth keeping in mind once you’re out of debt so that you can keep your credit cards active and treat them responsibly.

What are your credit card usage strategies? Let me know in the comments — I’d love to hear what methods you use.
