Some More Affiliate Marketing Tips for Your Business in 2013

Most experts predict that by 2014 mobile will overtake fixed Internet access. That means that more people will be using their smart phones to use the Internet than their computers at home or work. This massive shift to the mobile Internet means a lot of opportunity for online entrepreneurs. Here you will find 3 different ways that you can capitalize on the mobile marketing trend.

#1 CPA Offers

One of the easiest ways to get started with making money with mobile marketing is CPA or Cost Per Action offers. With a CPA offer you are paid whenever you induce someone to perform a certain action such as providing their email address or filling out a form. CPA offers tend to work better than trying to sell something directly with mobile marketing because many consumers are still reluctant to provide their credit cards details using a smart phone. However getting them to fill out a simple form or giving their email address is not that difficult. To get started you will need to first join a CPA network. Some popular networks for people new to CPA include max bounty and peerfly. You can also use the website Offervault which lists a huge number of categorized CPA offers from all the different networks.

#2 Mobile Marketing Consultant

Another great opportunity is becoming a mobile marketing consultant. As a mobile marketing consultant you help offline businesses to setup their own mobile marketing campaigns. By offering discounts, rewards and running promotions you will be able to get people to sign up for your mobile marketing list. Once on their you can deliver customers to your client with the tap of a button. One of the great things about becoming a mobile marketing consultant is that you can leverage off the resources and reputation of the business to help setup your campaigns. For example if you were setting up a mobile marketing campaign for a restaurant you could include information about how to sign up for the offer on the place mats in the restaurant.

#3 Become a Mobile Website Designer

While most business these days have a website, not that many have one which is mobile ready. A mobile website is one which is specifically designed for a mobiles interface and small screen. This typically means removing some of the features of the full site and simplifying the navigation. There is a huge opportunity to create these mobile sites for businesses as smart phones become the preferred way to access websites. You don't even need to know how to create the websites yourself, there are many outsourcers online who can inexpensively design a mobile site. In essence you become a middle man, finding the clients and then having someone else do the work, and adding on your profit margins in the process.

Mobile marketing is an industry with a huge amount of growth opportunity. While the industry is already thriving we are only at the start of the mobile marketing boom. Entrepreneurs who get in now have the chance to capitalize on a once in a life time opportunity.
