If you do these things you will absolutely outsell other affiliate marketers, and put yourself in an authority position within every niche market you choose. I promise you. Because the truth is, if you want to make a lot of money in affiliate marketing, you can't be afraid to do some work and to go beyond what other affiliate marketers are doing.
You need to stand out. You need to give people a clear reason to listen to you so they'll click on your links and purchase the products you recommend. The work you do now will undoubtedly pay off in the end. Once you're making $ 10ka month, you can be lazy. Now isn't the time. Right now, you need to do the upfront work that will set you up for long-term success.
So, where should you begin? What are the absolute essential steps that you need to take to start making money while looking out for the future? I touched on it already, but keep reading and I'll jump into the trenches with you and show you exactly where you should start.
Keep a Steady Eye on Your Market
If you want to make a ton of money in affiliate marketing, you absolutely must be fanatical about keeping tabs on your market so you can effectively position yourself in front of your target audience long before others do.
In fact, the easiest way to make money in affiliate marketing is to have your system in place weeks before the launch ever happens. That way, you not only position yourself in the search engines (and in front of the line with subscribers) for when the big day comes, but you're given enough time to create content, value enhancers and bonus products that will draw customers to you, rather than the competition.
When you subscribe to a JV or launch notification program, you'll receive emails and updates about upcoming product launches long before the information is made available to potential customers. In fact, many times, you'll find out about upcoming product launches long before the merchant even begins to contact their own affiliates!
If you aren't sure where to begin, or who these developers are, you can join Muncheye, which is a launch notification system that will send you emails about upcoming launches.

You'll need to apply for approval with each vendor, but typically it only takes a couple of hours to get approval. Then, you'll have immediate access to their JV promotional page where you'll be able to download swipe files, banners, ad copy, and more.
Plus, you'll get to see their entire sales funnel and how you can earn more money through their back-end offers. There are countless other affiliate marketplaces online so run a Google search to find a few that offer products that you are interested in and then subscribe to their updates. The sooner you know of a product launch, the more prepared you will be; it's as simple as that.
If you only start prepping your website and list within a few days of an upcoming launch you'll struggle to generate enough traffic through your affiliate links to make it worth your while. Instead, if you know of an upcoming launch weeks, even months ahead of time, you can set up a killer system that will maximize exposure, and of course, profits.
