How to Find the Best Affiliate ProductsSo you’ve discovered a great niche and found a few potential products.

Apps are the Future of Affiliate MarketingYou’ve probably heard a lot about the income potential of mobile marketing.  But can you monetize it with affiliate marketing?  The short answer is YES!

In this guest post, Carter will talk about why mobile apps are the future of affiliate marketing.  Plus he gives some excellent pointers on how you can get started.

On a personal note, I’ve just jumped into the mobile apps market.  So I found Carter’s post to be chock-full of great information that I can immediately apply to my existing affiliate business.

In case you haven’t heard, there is a tidal wave coming.

In fact, the first waves of that swell are beginning to hit – in 2011 the mobile app market pulled in a cool $9 billion dollars. What’s more impressive than that is the fact that in 2009 it was only $1 billion. That growth trajectory is on par with few other phenomena in history, exceeding the internet and on pace to be the biggest single market since oil and coffee.

There are over 30 million apps downloaded every day in the Apple app store. There are expected be 3 billion smart phones used by 2020. Apple expects to make more money on apps than music by the end of 2012. Apple made $94 billion….last quarter.

The list goes on. [click to continue…]

I heard a lot of great things about this income model and wanted in on the action!

For four months I worked hard on these sites.  And I’ve even made a little money.

But.

I don’t believe the “niche site” model is a viable long-term strategy for affiliate marketers.

Mixing Broadcast Emails with Autoresponder MessagesThis is a follow-up to the recent post: how often should you send email to an affiliate list.
