What You'll Find in This Article:
Anyone with a web site or opt-in mailing list can
join the ChineseFoodDIY affiliate program. All you need to do
is place an affiliate link on your web site, or in
an e-mail promotion, and you're in business.
BUT -- simply putting an
affiliate link on your web site in no way
actually be successful as an affiliate.
In order to maximize your click-throughs and earn
large profits (up to $33,600 per year!) -- in
other words, in order to become what we call a
super affiliate -- you need to treat your
affiliate product like it's your own business.
Read on to learn how people just like you
make up to $33,600 per year -- while working only
ten hours per week -- OR LESS!
What makes a super affiliate super?
As you might imagine from the name, a super
affiliate is someone who brings good business
sense and the drive to succeed to an affiliate
program -- and as a result, is able to earn an
exceptional living recommending other
It's no secret why super affiliates earn up to
$33,600 per year. They understand that they
can't just sit back and watch their commission
checks roll in. As with anything else, it takes a
lot of strategy and planning to be a highly
Here are eight of the key strategies that
top-selling affiliates follow faithfully in order
to maximize their click-throughs -- and their
Super affiliates sell products their
customers relate to
Super affiliates know that the most
important thing they need to do is be sure that
the affiliate products or services they're
promoting are somehow relevant to their customers.
If you don't offer relevant products to
your customers, you'll not only have a much
more difficult time making sales -- you could
actually end up damaging your credibility, and
decreasing your sales. Your customers will
start to view you as someone who is just out to
make a quick buck, rather than as a trusted source
For example: If you sell golf
clubs on your site, then you shouldn't choose
weight-loss pills for your affiliate promotion.
It should be related to golf in some way.
Remember, potential customers will be very
interested to learn what brand of golf clubs a
golf expert would recommend, but these same
customers are going to become confused and even
irritated if you start promoting weight-loss
products to them.
Fortunately, ChineseFoodDIY's product appeals to a wide
and diverse range of people. Lots and lots of
people want to hear about ways they can improve
their health, lose weight, eat healthy food, live
an enjoyable life and more. That's why our product
is a good way to start out as an
Strategy #2: Super affiliates drive
traffic to their sites
Super affiliates know that, in order to make
serious money as affiliates, they need to
play "the numbers game." Here's what we mean:
Between 1% and 20% of the people who visit your
web site will click through your affiliate link.
(The range is wide because it all depends on how
targeted your traffic is and how good the
affiliate link, banner ad, text link, or other
promotional tool you're using is.)
Out of every 200 people who actually click
through your affiliate link (not just visit your
site, but actually click on your affiliate link),
only 1 to 2 will buy.
What does this mean? The bottom line is that in
order to make one affiliate sale, you'll need to
attract at least 500 people to your web site.
Now, we're not telling this to scare you --
after all, there are plenty of ChineseFoodDIY affiliates
just like you who easily drive more traffic
than this to their sites each and every month. We
just want you to be aware that it takes a bit of
So how do you go about driving more people to your
site? There are a number of strategies that super
affiliates use to keep visitors coming:

Strategy #3: Super affiliates actively
market their products
ChineseFoodDIY's top affiliates know this: No matter how
great the affiliate products you're selling are,
people aren't going to beat a path to your door to
get them. You need to bring the products to the
customers. That's why super affiliates devote a
big chunk of their time to actively marketing the
If you have a list of newsletter subscribers that
you've been regularly mailing an e-zine or
newsletter to, then you're already
perfectly positioned to bring your products to
your customers -- and become a super affiliate.
That's because your subscribers see your
newsletter as a valuable resource. They look to
you for advice, news, industry updates, and other
valuable information. So why not take advantage of
your reputation as a credible source of
information to sell affiliate products?
If you don't have an opt-in mailing list yet,
now is the time to start one. It's easier
than you might think. You just need to come up
with a free offer for something that visitors to
your site want -- then ask for their
e-mail addresses in return.
These could include:
'Members only' content

Strategy #4: Super Affiliates Use Personal
Super affiliates understand that personal
endorsements and testimonials are a powerful way
to capitalize on the relationships that they've
already developed with their customers and
subscribers. Their customers know and trust them,
either because they've already bought something
from them, or because they have been receiving
valuable information from them.
A letter of personal recommendation is much like
recommending a good movie to a friend. Your friend
(1) takes your recommendation seriously because
she knows and trusts you, and (2) is far more
likely to act on your recommendation than if she
just heard about the movie through an ad in the
newspaper. As far as your friend is concerned, you
have nothing to gain by lying to her about the
quality of the movie. She trusts your good
Remember that your visitors will be regarding
these testimonials with a critical eye. You want
them to regard the testimonials as friendly advice
or a personal favor, rather than a "cash grab."
There are different ways you can endorse your
Using e-mail endorsements:
E-mail is the preferred way to endorse your
affiliate products. It's a much more personal
approach, and, when done correctly, can look
like you've written personally to each
individual subscriber to recommend the product.
Using web endorsements:
Endorsing an affiliate product on your web site
is also helpful. Instead of writing a personal
letter, though, you may want to consider a more
Many super affiliates find that a product review
posted on their site is the most effective way
to endorse their product. A good product review
-- like the ones that ChineseFoodDIY creates for our
affiliates to use -- typically focuses on the
product's benefits, rather than

Strategy #5: Super affiliates avoid creating sites
that look like flea markets
Creating a site that looks like a flea market is
the biggest mistake we see affiliates
making -- and one that super affiliates carefully
What do we mean by "flea market"? Well, many
affiliates go crazy and start promoting 10 or 15
unrelated affiliate products on their site,
thinking that they can make a lot of money by
promoting lots of different products.
It's absolutely critical that you don't have a
zillion products cluttering up your main site.
Sites like these look very unprofessional. They
give the appearance of trying to make a quick
buck, rather than doing their visitors a favor by
recommending one or two high-quality products.
The most profitable way to approach affiliate
promotions is to choose one quality product and
promote it really well, then add related
Super affiliates test extensively
It's really important to super affiliates that
they make every effort to maximize their
conversion rates -- and their profits -- by
testing everything! To a top-earning affiliate,
results are never "good enough."
What to test: In a word --
everything! For example, try testing
different text links. Try putting them in
different spots on your site. Try different
testimonials and postings, different articles
and newsletters. See what happens to sales when
you add a personal letter of referral. Try using
And remember -- your testing is only as good as
your system for tracking your results!

Strategy #7: Super
affiliates devote space to their products
Super affiliates know that in order to give their
affiliate products the attention they deserve,
it's helpful to really feature them. This often
means devoting an entire page of their web site to
the product. In fact, some super affiliates don't
even have their own products -- their web sites
are set up exclusively to promote their
Super affiliates use their affiliate
products in back-end offers
Any super affiliate earning upwards of $33,600
per year understands that, in order to get the
most out of affiliate programs, you need to take
every opportunity to offer your customers your
affiliate products -- including immediately after
they've just purchased something else!
Here's how that works: Say a customer makes a
purchase from you. You would, of course, send them
a confirmation e-mail, outlining the details of
their purchase. Why not take the opportunity to
add a promotion for a different product in this
confirmation? It costs nothing more, and the
results are definitely worth it.
Another approach would be to send an e-mail to a
customer several days after they've received their
purchase, to see if they're enjoying the product.
You could then offer a new, related product in
The best back-end offers are those that offer
products related to the original purchase, or are
targeted to the person who made the initial

There are lots of people out there there -- people
just like you -- who are enjoying the financial
freedom that comes with successful affiliate
These people, referred to as "super affiliates,"
all have one thing in common: They know that
making it big recommending other people's products
takes determination, planning, and strategy -- and
more effort than merely adding affiliate links to
their sites and then waiting for their checks to
arrive in the mail.
With the right strategy and some well-chosen
affiliate products for your audience, being a
super-affiliate is a rewarding proposition. It's
lucrative, worry-free (you don't have to think
about developing, selling, storing, or shipping a
product), and all you really have to do is
generate enough interest in the product to
convince your audience to click through to our
site -- we'll take care of the rest!
