New Affiliate Program Launching Soon!
There's no better way online to increase brand awareness, strengthen and attract more Joint Venture opportunities, and multiply revenues exponentially, then to implement an Affiliate Program. We're happy to announce that Paradise Publishers is now in the final stages of launching our own Affiliate Program shortly at www.Free-Ebooks.net.
An online Affiliate Program is a critical strategy to boost paid V.I.P. Membership sales, improve traffic, and strengthen brand recognition. We're excited to announce our Affiliate System plans. While currently in the development stage, there's a planned launch for mid-late April to the general public.
For those unfamiliar with affiliate programs Wikipedia defines it as: “An Internet-based marketing practice in which a business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought about by the affiliate’s marketing efforts. It is an application of crowdsourcing.” (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Affiliate_marketing)
To simplify, let's say you join as an "Affiliate" and then send an email to your neighbor telling her about us. Your neighbor clicks the link to our site in the email, makes a purchase, and voila - you get paid! Because the link contained a unique affiliate ID # assigned to you, our system recognizes it, records the sale and rewards you with a 25-40% commission on any purchase she makes.
In contrast to traditional marketing methods that may not lead to more sales, affiliates only get paid after they refer a sale. This allows us to keep costs down by limiting costs to only affilate support and training - much of which can be automated to further reduce any expenses.
Instituting an affiliate program is very exciting as it can create a massive 'Virtual Sales Force’ exceptionally quickly. Free-eBooks.net, for example now has over 603,185 members. If just a mere 1% of those joined our affiliate program, we’d have over 6,000 new virtual salespeople promoting the site and bringing in new clients. Now imagine if 5 or 10% of our members opted into this program. Plus, don’t forget there are 700-900 new members that subscribe every day to Free-ebooks.net that can also add to our marketing momentum.
Massive Industry Growth Continues
As mentioned in our last update, the electronic book industry is booming. Amazon currently sells 6 ebooks to every 10 physical books. Over 3,000,000 eBook Readers (portable reading devices) were sold in the US in 2009. (Source: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/amazon_now_sells_6_kindle_books_for_every_10_physi.php ) and with new media moguls like Apple entering the reader competition (with theiriPAD), sales will increase even further this year.
The more consumers that purchase eReaders, the greater the potential market grows for our affiliates and us. Why? Consumers want to fill their devices with ebooks and get online to source free and low-priced reading material. Take a look at this industry trend here:
Affiliate Marketing is not a novel strategy but it's a proven one! In fact, Amazon claims to have pioneered it in 1996 and believes it’s responsible for the company’s early growth and success. Today Amazon still derives about 40 percent of its sales from affiliates.
In addition to the system itself, we’re creating the marketing tools affiliates need to succeed including banner ads, text ads, emails and more. These sales aids make it a snap for affiliates to display our marketing messages in their websites, emails and more. This is all at NO cost to us! Imagine the revenue that can come from having 6,000 or more new affiliates now hosting ads for us on their websites and as part of their marketing efforts.
Combine the rapidly increasing desire consumers have for the books we offer with the potential for a massive commission-based sales force, and it’s easy to see why we’re excited to share this news with you!
We look forward to getting started with this new chapter in our continuing adventures.
