A Day In The Life of an Affiliate Marketer

Being in the affiliate marketing business is not that hard now with the internet at your disposal. It is much easier now compared to the days when people had to make use of landline telephones and print media just to get the latest updates on the way their program is coming along. So with technology at hand, and assuming that the affiliate is working from home, a day the life of a professional affiliate may look something like this…

A Day In The Life Of An Affiliate Marketer

Upon waking up and after having breakfast, the computer is turned on to check out new developments in the affiliate programs the member is participating in. As far as the professional affiliate marketer is concerned, there may be new promotions to run and and company developments to catch up on.

You may need to make some updates to your website. A professional affiliate marketer knows that a well-designed site with good copywriting and product promotions can increase sign ups from visitors. In addition to this, adding interesting content in the form of articles and videos to your website regularly is a great way to attract more visitors from search engines and social media, so daily content development is a must!

That done, it may be time to do some proactive outreach marketing which may include contacting other website owners to form partnerships, proposing to write guest posts for other websites, or possibly expanding your paid advertising campaigns through solo ads, pay-per-click advertising and more.

If your marketing plan is effective, you’ll need to spend some time daily tracking where your visitors, signups and sales are coming from. By knowing these metrics, you’ll be able to expand on your marketing winners, and cut your losers. Many affiliates waste time and money on marketing strategies that don’t work, but you won’t know this unless your using reliable online tracking tools to see exactly what’s happening in your business.

Of course, another part of your day as a successful affiliate marketer is answering questions and following up with prospects and leads. This has to be done quickly if you want your follow up to be effective in helping you generate more sales. Nothing turns customer away more than an unanswered email or phone calls.

In the process of doing all the necessities, a full-time affiliate marketer may spend some time each day in online forums and discussion communities where he or she interacts with others who share common business interests. Contributing constructively in forum discussions is a great way to grow your reputation as an expert in your field. On top of the inherent marketing benefits of forum contribution, you will always learn new things yourself (as long as you have an open mind and desire to learn) which can help you grow your business in new ways as you engage in different online communities.

Another important daily task is to email your subscribers and prospects. Whether you are sending an update, sharing a valuable resource, or promoting a new product that you think can help your audience, regular communication by email with your prospects is one of the most important and direct ways to grow your online affiliate marketing business.

Finally, to be truly successful as an affiliate or home business owner, look for ways every day to give back and give thanks. Nothing expands your circle of friends and partners faster than regular expressed gratitude, and nothing will improve your reputation faster and more convincingly than finding ways to give back to the community or niche that you work in. Consider finding people who are struggling in areas that you know how to help in, and do your best to help them. This does not require an investment of capital, but a little bit of your time and expertise can really go a long way in making a difference for someone else’s life; and in turn the angels of good fortune will shine their light on you! 🙂

Time flies quickly when you’re building a business online, and you may miss an occasional lunch or dinner as a professional affiliate marketer, but the rewards of your dedication will pay big dividends over time, and ultimately can lead you to the time and income freedom that you started your own affiliate marketing career in the first place.

Outsource Article Writing for Your Website

One of the most effective marketing strategies for a successful home-based business website is producing quality content in the form of articles. You might think of this as blogging… Even though blogging can be a great way to build your online reputation and authority, you may not always have time needed to write the articles your site needs.

Outsource Writing for Your Home Business

Although you can say that no one knows your business’ needs or product line better than you, you might be surprised that some writers are pretty good at producing just the content you need, at an affordable price too. Besides, running a business is always a time-consuming endeavor and the more ways you find to outsource important tasks, the faster and more easily you will be able to grow your business.

So you know you need to outsource… The main question is how you will find great writers in a sea of available ghostwriters online? Yes, there are many of them. Article ghostwriting is a full-time profession for many people, and you can easily find them online once you start doing some research.

When you want specific writing styles and article slants, one way to find articles for your site is to use Google to search for the type of content you are looking for and then find the different authors who are publishing these articles directly. In fact, there are many article directories online that even include rating systems for the quality of articles, along with easy ways to get in touch with the authors of those articles.

If you contact the authors of the articles you like, you can also ask if they are available to take on the article writing jobs for you, or possibly write guest posts for your website. And so the negotiation begins… Truth is, it’s a win-win. After all, their published online articles enhance their own reputation and brand awareness so there are many people out there who will be eager to write articles for your website.

Another very effective way to find writers for your projects is to post your jobs or look up writers directly on freelance sites such as Upwork. If you go there and post a job for the type of writing you want done, you will get many proposals from available ghostwriters, and you may find exactly what you are looking for. Using services like this, you will be able to see the reputation of the writers who are proposing to fulfill your writing needs, and you will have many options for people to start working with.

Finding writers to outsource your article writing needs is not impossible; it just takes setting a clear intention of what you want and then doing the research and due diligence needed to find the best writers for your needs. Once you find qualified writers and start working with them regularly to help you product quality content for your website and content marketing campaigns, you’ll have more time to devote to other important tasks in growing your online home business, or maybe just for relaxing and enjoying the fruit of your home-based business success! That’s why you got started in the first place, right?!

In fact, he has created a lot of entrepreneurs from his students  who later made 6 to 7 figures in the online marketing world.

He has a ton of experience on building businesses as well and very familiar with high ticket products.

Digital Altitude was created for the online entrepreneur who wants to take their existing business or Digital Altitude to the next level in 6 steps..

Digital Altitude Reviews – The Compensation Plan

This is  the  most crucial part that keeps the  company attracting thousands of people to join.

There are three commission percentages you can get paid on and it will depend level you’re  such as,Walker, Hiker or Climber monthly memberships.

Walker ($37/mo)

  • Tier 1:  40%

If you are at Walker, you get paid only on 1 Tier for ALL of the products.

Hiker ($67/mo)

  • Tier 1:  40%
  • Tier 2:  10%

If you are at Hiker level  you get paid on two tiers for ALL of the products.

Climber ($127/mo)

  • Tier 1:  45%
  • Tier 2:  10%
  • Tier 3:  5%

If you’re at Climber, you get paid on ALL Three Tiers on ALL of the products.

If you didn’t know this, you actually get a personal coach who will close your team members to get the higher level products.

When a coach successfully closes these members, you earn 40% instead of 60% for the coaches services over 3 tiers.

Still a great deal for the amount of work they do.

So this is what it looks like:

  • Aspire level:  40% commission with 1 tier payout at $37 level. 50% commission on 2 tiers payout at the $67 level and 60% over 3 tiers on $127 level
  • Base Level:  60% Commissions over 3 tiers (Total Payout: $360 per sale).
  • Rise Level: 60% Commissions over 3 tiers (Total Payout: $1200 per sale).
  • Ascend Level:  60% Commissions over 3 tiers (Total Payout: $6000 per sale).
  • Peak Level:  60% Commissions over 3 tiers (Total Payout: $10,200 per Sale).
  • Apex Level:  60% commissions over 3 tiers (Total Payout: $16,800 per sale).
  • If COACH closes your sales, take of 20% off your Tier 1 for their service.

To qualify for these commissions, you must buy that level. Many people hit their head and pull their hair,listen here….

If you don’t have that level and someone on your team purchases, it will be passed up to the next up line qualified for that level.

Conclusion on Digital Altitude Reviews

Well after doing some research about Michael Force and actually getting in as a trial tester, the system is fantastic.

Not only that, it just converts very well.

For example, I sent out an email last week about Digital Altitude and I got 3 sign up’s at the trial level.

I am sure they will keep their membership because you get a TON of value and you will get results once you take action on the training.

Balance Home Business and Family Life

When you’re a work-at-home Mom, you won’t get far unless you keep a firm line between your business and what your family and kids demand from you. Kids tend to take up much of your personal and professional time. You could, of course, wait for them to mature a bit, so they’d need you less, but that could take years. It’s better to apply a few strategies that work for managing your home-run business and your kids.

Balance Home Business and Family Life

Use a separate phone for your business. When you already have a phone in the house, why get another line for your business, right? This seemingly cost-saving tactic backfires: sometimes a family member takes a call from a client and discloses a somewhat different arrangement from what was agreed upon earlier. What’s worse is that time when you resent your kids for taking up so much time on the phone when you clearly need it. Unless your kids become aware of your business motives and maturely accept them, you’d do better to get another phone line.

Hire someone to watch your kids. When your income is strong enough to get a babysitter, it’s usually best to do so. With someone else managing the kids, the mental space and emotional energy freed up can be dedicated to growing your business.

Have a ‘semi-isolated’ place at home you can call your office. This could be a corner in your kitchen, or a separate small room you can lock yourself in to. Having a place where you can post notes and plan and work keeps you focused; it tells your psyche that when you’re there, the business is all there is. So it’s best to train your kids to handle their chores on their own, so you get more time in your office space. Also, they’ll have to get used to not disturbing you during your office ‘hours’, which are generally more flexible for the home business owner.

Take short naps. One good thing about working at home is exactly that. When you get tired or unfocused, you can take a nap to get recharged. When you train your kids to take short naps, you can take a nap with them knowing that there’s little else to worry about but getting a little rest. In fact, many business owners come up with some of their best ideas either during or just after an afternoon nap. Rest well, and get inspired!

Let your kids see you work. One way to teach them to give you ‘room’ for your business is to let them see you work. This could get bothersome at first, especially when your kids are young and want your attention. Over time, they could get used to doing their homework in a corner in your office. The more they hear you talk to clients over the phone, the more clues they get about your having time to work. Soon they’ll learn to keep to themselves when you’re on the phone with clients or busy typing away on an important email or web project.

Meet your clients outside the house. Few things are more common these days than having a meeting at a local coffee shop to discuss business. The advantage of this is two-fold: you won’t get disturbed by domestic worries, and your client sees you as a responsible worker (one who doesn’t insist on juggling his concerns with your family life). Plus, leaving the home for a little while is a great refresher and another way to recharge!

There are many life-liberating advantages to working from home for you and your family, but be sure to follow some of these guidelines if you want to keep your sanity, and have the good fortune of long-term success in your home business.

4 Ways to Reduce Stress in Your Business

Many people think that working from home is a stress-less experience. After all, when you’re working from home you don’t have to deal with office politics, annoying bosses and coworkers… Plus, there’s no stressful commute to work or having to adhere to a dictated schedule. It’s no wonder people dream about working from home some day. 🙂

4 Ways to Reduce Stress in Your Business

The truth is, it doesn’t matter where you work… You are going to experience stress. Stress is not the lone experience of office professionals. Everyone experiences stress as a result of many factors in their lives and business.

The good news is that stress can be very useful. It can act as a motivator or alert us to something that really does require our attention. But too much stress reduces your body’s ability to fight disease, it wears you out, and it can affect your judgment in a negative way. Therefore, finding reliable ways to reduce your stress are very important to the long-term success of your business.

Get organized. It’s about having a system you can rely on so you won’t have to stress about every problem that comes your way. Develop a decision-making procedure to handle your affairs, whether it be in shipping inquiries, handling dealers, answering customer questions, etc. You can of course improve your systems over time, but what’s important is that you implement a system that gives you some control and order.

Exercise. People who work out often report that they feel happier than those who do not. Increased heart-rate and metabolism, better digestion, and an all around feeling of lightness all work together to keep you in a lighter mood. The more you stay at your desk in front of your computer and see problems, the more you might get depressed. Sweat a little. Run. Go to the gym. Staying away from your work doesn’t mean abandoning it, as people who work out also tend to come up with new solutions to their work problems simply because they had time to think about the problem while being removed from it.

Listen to music. People who listen to music deal with stress by losing themselves in the music or by letting the music influence their moods instead of just thinking and worrying about your business challenges. Some people even have various playlists for different kinds of work they have to do. Think of it as a playlist for doing chores in the home. Create one for doing accounting, responding to customers and so on… Some listen to classical music because it helps them think.

Practice Meditation. While computers have a memory cache, people’s brains have limited capacities to actually remember and worry about every single little thing. While computers can erase their cache and get a fresh start, don’t forget that people can as well. Sleep is one way to refresh the mind, but modern meditation techniques allow a person to get the equivalent rest and recovery of several hours of sleep in 30 minutes or less. Learn to meditate, and practice regularly.

Also remember that the goal of working is to earn money to finance the other half of your life: living. Whether you work inside or outside of the home, developing reliable ways to de-stress your life and business will lead to greater productivity and personal satisfaction.
