10 Secrets of the Super Affiliate Mindset
(Page 1 of 5 )
Contrary to popular belief, super-affiliates donít really DO things differently than affiliate underachievers.Super-affiliates promote the same products. They use the same SEO techniques. They have the same headaches. And they work just as hard.
But super-affiliates THINK differently. Their minds and attitudes go far beyond the commission check. For them, affiliate marketing is not just a business. It's a CAREER. And that professional mindset makes a huge difference in how and when they take action in the marketplace.
I've worked side by side with many super-affiliates. I've even helped create a few. They all share a special kind of mindset. So as you read these 10 characteristics of affiliate super-achievers, ask yourself, "Could I learn to think this way?"
#1 - Super-affiliates think creatively.
You know what you'll get if you do what everyone else does? You'll get what they get... only you'll be splitting it with them, and all their imitators.
In today's Internet marketplace, you need to be a leader, not a follower. So super-affiliates don't follow the crowd. They sell TO the crowd. They take the most successful marketing techniques, apply them to selling the most popular products... and then add a unique spin.
It could be as simple as offering one unusual, but highly valuable bonus. It could be as sensible as using low-cost offline marketing, while everyone else is breaking the bank on expensive PPC. It could be as innovative as dumping the sales letter, and substituting a quiz or contest. But super-affiliates always, always, ALWAYS look for ways to be a little more creative than their competitors.
#2 - Super-affiliates learn the hard stuff.
Less than 10% of people who start their own business are successful. Why? Most fail because they lack direct sales experience, don't bother with a marketing and business plan, or get into debt promoting products that don't have a market. In other words, they flunk when they get tested on the really tough aspects of business.
