    3 Words to Describe an Affiliate...


    Hey,

    This is probably a bit of a water cooler type topic but relates to affiliate marketing and this forum section could do with some action so lets see if any affiliates are around and fancy helping me out.

    A colleague of mine is writing an article about what makes a good affiliate marketer and is looking for input.

    Can you think of 3 words that describe a successful affiliate marketer? Use more if you want to write something longer of course, and I'll take some comedy answers for my entertainment as well

    Thanks!

    Not really sure what context you're looking for, but for one of my personal favorite affiliates, i would say...

    MVP - Most Valuable Partner

    I like using the word "partner" when working with other companies, so my list would be spammy and probably be stuffed with that keyword lol

    Hey, thanks for the reply!

    I really love that response! Rachel's example was Driven, Patient, Creative but I think your answer definitely takes it from a slightly different angle and sums up perfectly something that is needed for a successful long term affiliate campaign - striving to be a most valuable partner and truly add value to the merchants business. That's something we like to think we encourage our affiliates to do, with our focus on quality content creation to add value, and a reason our merchants are willing to reward with big commissions.

    I think a good affiliate marketer knows how to market well.

    They are usually good copywriters as well as good people. It takes knowing what a good product is and also how to sell it as well.

    It's actually more difficult than handling clients, but if you know how to sell, can write good copy and know what makes a good product then you can be a good affiliate marketer as well.
