Many times the affiliate marketing business is represented as an easy way to make money on the Internet. When you compare it to starting a traditional business there are many built in advantages that affiliate marketing has to offers.

However, to be successful you need to utilize the right resources and take the right approach. Here are 3 affiliate marketing resources we feel you must have two ensure your affiliate marketing success.

1. Your own website to pre sell your product. One of the hardest things to do is get a person to spend the money on the Internet.

As an affiliate marketer you will be given any website to sell your products on. The downside to this is every affiliate marketer is given the exact same website that you are using. These websites are written by professional copywriters to help make a sale.

However, if you can create a website of your own, and pre sell the product from your own point of view, you will find your conversion rate increases. The whole point of a pre sell page is to warm your prospect up before sending them directly to your affiliate sales page. Of course you get to control the content that goes on it which allows you to be different from the other affiliate marketer you are competing with.

2. An autoresponder to capture names and email addresses for future follow up. Most people will not make a purchase on the first visit to your website. Therefore you should create a landing page where you capture names and e-mail addresses before sending them through to your pre sell page.

If you prefer you can also add a sign-up form to your pre sell page and capture contact information directly on it. The important point is by having names and e-mail addresses to follow up with, you can increase your sales in the future, because you have the contact information of your visitor.

3. A blog to add fresh content for your readers and to serve as search engine bait. Some of the best traffic you can get is from search engines. As a matter of fact over half of all people use a search engine to find things on the Internet today.

Search engines love blogs, therefore you want to have a blog that adds content on a regular basis relating to the niche that your affiliate product is in. This allows you to write interesting content from your reader's point of view, as well as create content that search engines can rate you highly for various keywords on.

In summary these three affiliate marketing resources will give you the upper hand when it comes to making more sales and beating your competition.
