Affiliate Marketing Tips - Are You Marketing Ethically?

By Steven Wagenheim
Let's forget about the ethics as far as whether or not you're doing something bad to another marketer, merchant or consumer. If you market affiliate products in an unethical manner and the merchant or marketplace finds out about it, you can get your account closed and ultimately, your income shut down. So, given that fact, isn't it smart to market ethically if for no other reason than your own selfish gains? Good, at least we agree on this much. If nothing else, you should know what activities could get you in deep trouble. I'm going to cover a few here.

The first one, off the top of my head, is cookie stuffing. This is where you stuff a cookie on the visitors PC for the product you're promoting regardless of whether or not they actually clicked on your link. Forgetting that this is purely unethical as you're getting a sale that you didn't earn if the prospect goes on to buy, almost every affiliate marketplace bans cookie stuffing. It is against their TOS and if you are caught doing it, you WILL get your account shut down. It's that simple. So think twice before you cookie stuff.

Another unethical affiliate marketing practice is writing false reviews of products. I'm talking about reviews where you never really tried or read the product and are just making things up to make a sale. This might not get your account shut by the marketplace, but this is what it WILL do. The customer will see it was a bogus review after they buy the product and in most cases, will refund it. Not only that, they're going to start spreading the word that you're a liar, plain and simple. So before you start making up reviews, think about what you're doing to your reputation.

Finally, there are the kinds of ads that you run. There is a rash of "scam" ads being run all over the Internet, especially with pay per click, that has a lot of people in an uproar. These are purely deceptive ads and a lot of merchants are dropping affiliates like flies for running them. So if you think running an ad like "Product X Is A Scam" you better think twice about it. It could cost you your account.

I realize that I'm either preaching to the choir (those who would never do this) or those that don't care, but my hope is that I am reaching somebody new who doesn't know how harmful these things are and will take my words to heart.

To YOUR Success,

Steven Wagenheim

5 Ways Your Business Can Benefit From Online Auctions

By Dan Hall
It seems as if everyone is talking about online auctions. And why not. There are thousands of online auctions on the internet with more popping up everyday. People love them because they can usually find great bargains. Businesses are now also seeing the benefits of online auctions. Below are five ways your business can benefit from online auctions.

1. Get Rid Of Excess Inventory

You could sell your excess or discontinued products at an online auction. Your unsold inventory is doing you no good sitting around, collecting dust. It's an effective way to make extra income and it won't be a total loss for your business.
You could even get lucky and make a profit depending on how much people will bid for your excess inventory.

2. Test Pricing For New Products

An easy way to test new product prices is to see what people will bid for them at an online auction. First, sell your product at three different online auctions. Next, calculate the average selling bid from all three auctions and that will be your selling price for your new product.

3. Sell Your Products

You can get your product in front of a large audience by selling it at an online auction. Some of the bigger auction sites draw over millions of hits a year. The key to being successful is to sell your product at multiple online auctions at the same time. Let's say you sold one product a day from just one auction site. If you sell your product at one hundred online auction sites that would be one hundred sales a day!

4. Start Your Own Online Auction

Drive traffic to your web site by starting your own online auction. People will visit your web site to find bargains and to sell their own products. You will get plenty of repeat visitors from people rebidding on products and adding new products to sell. You could also charge other businesses to advertise on your web site.

5. Lower Your Business Costs

You can find lower prices on business supplies and equipment at online auctions. I'm not saying all the time, but before you go pay retail for a new printer try bidding on one first. A company may be selling them at a lower price at an online auction because they have excess inventory.

Quote of the Day:

"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will have truly defeated age." -- Sophia Loren

Warm regards,

Dan Hall
