Being a Jamaican affiliate marketer is not as hard and complicated now with the internet at your fingertips. It is much easier now compared to the days when people had to make use of the telephones and other mediums of information just to get the latest updates on what is trending in the world and what people are buying online.
So with technology at my disposal and working from home a day in my life sound something like this…
The phone alarms at 4:50 a.m. and it is time to get up! Then it is time for meditation, devotion and mental preparation for the day. Getting out of the bed sometimes is the hardest part but after getting out getting a shower and all the other necessary basic hygiene it is now time to face another day.
Work Day of a Jamaican Affiliate Marketer
The computer is turned and I head to the kitchen to make breakfast. This is a special time to catch up with family members and to relax a bit. After breakfast, it is time to get to work so it is off to my makeshift office in my bedroom away from the hustle and bustle. It is time to check google analytics, PayPal, updates, emails, comments and contacts.
That done, it is time to submit the affiliate program to directories that list affiliate programs. These directories are means to attract people to join my affiliate program. A sure way of promoting the affiliate program. Yes, the day of the Jamaican affiliate marketer just got super busy.
Time to track down the sales I am getting from my affiliates fairly and accurately. There are phone orders and mails to track down. Let me see if there are new clients checking the products out. I take the contact information down for future reference.
There are lots of resources to sort out. Ads, banners, button ads and sample recommendations to give out because this Jamaican affiliate marketer knows that this is one way of ensuring more sales. Best to stay visible and accessible too. Oh yes, I just remember that there are questions to answer from the visitors. This has to be done quickly. Nothing can turn off a customer than an unanswered email.
To prove that I working effectively and efficiently, inquiries have to be paid more attention. Nobody wants to be ignored and customers are not always the most patient of all people. Quick answer that should appear professional yet friendly too.
Networking is Key in the Life of an Affiliate Marketer
In the process of doing all the necessities, this Jamaican affiliate marketer is logged in to a chat room where she interacts with other affiliate marketers. This is where she can discuss things on how to best promote her products.
There are things to be learned and it is a continuous process. Sharing tips and advice is a good way of showing support. There may be others out there wanting to join and may be enticed by the discussion that is going on. There is no harm in assuming what opportunities ahead.
The newsletters and ezines were updated days ago, so it is time for this affiliate marketer to see if there are some new things happening in the market. This will be written about in the marketer’s publication to be distributed to the old and new customers.
These same publications are also an important tool in keeping up to date with the newly introduced products. It is time to put up a sale and promotion that customers may want to know about. Besides, I have to keep up with the deadline of these sales written in the publications.
It is also that time to show some appreciation to those who have helped in the promotions and sale increase. Nothing like mentioning the persons, their sites and the process they have done that made everything worked.
Of course, this will be published in the newsletters. Among the more important information that has been written already.
Time for Some Serious Writing
This Jamaican affiliate marketer still has time to write one or two articles for her visitors who are depending on her for relevant, reliable and credible sources for the products being promoted. There is also time to post some comments on how to be a successful affiliate marketer on a site where there are lots of wannabees.
Two objectives did at the same time. I get gets to promote the product I am selling as well as the wonderful program that helps me. Who knows, someone may be inclined to join today.
Wow, time really flies. Missed lunch but is quite contented with the tasks done. Guess what it is almost bedtime….
Ok, this was not a typical day, it was one of those crazy ones with a hundred or more things to do. However, it gives you an idea of how a Jamaican affiliate marketer, a dedicated one that is, spends the marketing day.
Is that success looming in the distance or what?
