It’s not necessary for affiliate marketers to play the launch game. You can do very well as an affiliate promoting “old stand-by” products. But a whole subset of the affiliate marketing arena involves product launches, especially when you’re dealing with internet marketing digital downloads. Since that’s the case, you’ll always want to know in advance about upcoming internet marketing product launches. I’ve got three resources for you so that you can be in the know.
Why It’s Good To Be In The Know About Upcoming Launches
If you are promoting a product that’s getting a full-blown product launch, you’ll want to be ready on launch day. If other affiliates have a head start over you, you can easily miss out on sales. You wouldn’t want that, now, would you? So you want to be ready with your promotions as soon as the launch goes live.
Many affiliate marketers block a day or a few days for any one launch. They don’t send out emails more than once a day and they don’t promote more than one thing in any email. So to manage your promotion schedule, you’ll want advance notice of the launches.
And besides, you’ll want to be able to get your bonus ready. You may not want or need to do a bonus for every product you promote. If you are promoting a very competitive product, though, many other affiliates will be offering bonuses. You won’t want to be left behind.
One place to go for upcoming internet marketing product launches is MunchEye. The front page lists the launches in columns organized by dates. Each launch is linked to an informational page that gives basic information, such as the seller, the launch date, the price of the front-end product, the commission, the affiliate network, and a link to the JV page. On the same informational page, you can also sign up to get notice of new launches by that seller.
JV Notify Pro
Another site that lists upcoming internet marketing product launches is JV Notify Pro. Like Munch Eye, each of the launches in the list links to a page where you can get more information about the product. JV Notify Pro also has an opt-in form to their e-mail list. Mike Merz Sr. e-mails regularly with news of upcoming launches. You may want to get on that list if you want to be in the know.
Product Creators’ Individual Lists
Most marketers that create products on a regular basis also maintain affiliate lists. Typically, an affiliate list is not the same as a customer list. As a result, if you are on the customer list of a product creator that you admire, you won’t be getting notice of their launches. But being on a customer list is a good place to start. You want to promote sellers whose products you respect and that you would use — and have used – yourself.
Your experience as a buyer will help you to decide whether you want to promote that seller or not. If you do want to promote them, Google them to find their blog or home page and see if they have an opt-in for notifications of affiliate launches. Or simply reply to an e-mail that you receive on their customer list and ask how you can join their affiliate list.
When product creators get ready to launch, they routinely email their affiliate lists so that the affiliates can create a bonus and put the launch on their promotion schedule. When you get the notification, you’ll be ready to take action.
If you promote internet marketing launches, you’ll want to know in advance what launches are coming up. Tune into the buzz. These three ways of keeping up with new launches will help you stay in the know.
