I'm a complete newbie to IM, & am trying to make some cash as an affiliate marketer. The main tool I'm trying is article marketing, with a link in the resource box direct to the sales page of whichever product I'm promoting. The link is not an obvious affiliate link - it's cloaked.
I am getting a reasonable number of views to my articles, and about 10% clickthrus, but absolutely NO sales.
Now I know that the real way to make affiliate sales is by sending visitors to my own pre sales website, & from here to the affiliate sales page. This is my plan, but it just takes time (and copyrighting skills!)
Surely sending visitors direct to the sales page in the meantime should get some results?
Any advice would be really appreciated.
