Affiliate marketing can be one of the best ways to make money online, but things can easily fall apart, especially if your applications are declined from most of the affiliate networks that you apply for. This is because affiliate networks get many signups everyday and probably a good number of the signups use other illegal ways do drive sales or maybe your website is not properly set.
Most of the applications are declined because most applicants do not have goals that they are aiming at, they just want to join and start making money. In order to stop these automatic declines that most affiliates get, I have provided you with some of the key areas you need to focus on in order to get approved on any affiliate program.
From time to time, Google implements actions and measures that attribute higher rankings but only to the sites with original and spam free content as they take away scrapped and copied sites. This is because they are only after original and quality written content; it is the main reason for identifying legit affiliates.
It is also very important to ensure that your website makes a good fit because most affiliate programs cannot see the relevancy of a website that has too many focuses since it is too broad and extensive.
Do you have a plan?
What is your plan for targeted traffic and quality results? These are the things that most affiliate manager/programs are looking for. It is important to ensure that yours is presented on a consistent basis and in a way that will send and promote traffic to the product. Whether you are using email marketing, paid search or SEO, it is important to have a good plan and strategy that has been specifically devised for your business will show them that you are very serious and interested in partnering with them
Most affiliate programs will want to interview you before they approve or reject your affiliate application so make sure to give them your actual phone number, and in case you won’t be available to ensure that you return the call and your answering machine should have a professional recording. Most affiliate programs will approve your work between Tuesday and Friday, so when you apply, try to target these 4 days to increase chances of getting a quick response.
Neat and quality design
Your website should not only rank well but also look at its best. In case you do not know how to design your website, there are many freelance designs you can invest in. a page that is combined with nice attractive graphics and a call to action are important to your triumph and also is the main criterion for most affiliate programs.
In case you are not sure about your design quality, you can ask your friends to give you honest feedback.
Things that will get your application declined:
· Copied content
· Banner farm
· Non updated site
· Private registration
· Using Squidoo or BlogSpot pages
· Wrong whois info
· Not having a site
If all these ways fails, you can try to contact the affiliate manager and ask why your application have been declined and I guarantee your application will end up getting approved into the program. But if the manager fails to reply, then it’s a program that you should be to start with.
