attempting to make profits (sole or additional income) through
affiliate marketing, it is necessary to stay abreast of all techniques
as they become available as well as utilizing all tools at your
disposal. While you are undoubtedly posting both text advertisements
and banner advertisements on your site, it is essential that you get
these advertisements and your affiliate links distributed throughout
the Internet in order to increase their chances at views, clicks, and
of course, purchases for your affiliate merchant or your own products.
Banner exchange programs are effective ways of spreading your banner
advertisements outward in an attempt to broaden your potential customer
base and increase your profits.
exchange programs work just how they sound. After becoming a member of
a program, you agree to post a certain number of banner advertisements
on your personal affiliate website in exchange for the program posting
your advertisement on other sites. The ratios arent exactly
copasetic, of course, and this is how banner advertisement exchange
programs generate their profit. By selling their extra ad space to
interested advertisers and posting members advertisements at roughly a
2:1 ratio, they generate a profit, but members are still receiving a
service in exchange, whether an even exchange or not exists. The
upside of a banner exchange program is of course the ability to get
your banner advertisements distributed and posted on other sites free
of charge. The downside is you have really no control over what kind
of websites carry your advertisements. Also the advertisements chosen
to be posted on your personal affiliate website may not be exactly to
your liking as well.
are quite a few different banner exchange programs offering themselves
up for use on the Internet. It is a good idea to do some research into
each one before taking the plunge. Though they in essence perform the
same service for you, each program has different benefits and aims.
Some programs, for instance, might be dedicated to certain sub-sections
or markets such as pet care or automobile care. Obviously if your
advertisements have anything to do with the subject matter a certain
program caters to, that program will more than likely serve you best.
Banner advertisement exchange programs that claim to intelligently and
effectively place advertisements are definitely preferable. They are
out there, and once one is located that suits your affiliate strategy
best, they are easy to join, and profits will follow!
