If you have already been in the affiliate marketing game for a while, you already understand the benefit of collecting emails and creating campaigns for your interested members. If not, let me explain a little bit.

One of the best ways to make sales is to target exactly those people that are most likely to buy. Let’s say you have a site about vegetarian recipes. Maybe you create a newsletter that sends out a new recipe directly to subscriber’s mailboxes once a week. This is a service they are requesting of you and are glad to give you their email. So how do you capitalize on this? You provide relevant helpful offers to them as well in the newsletter.

Hydra Network Affiliate MarketingRecently I joined an affiliate network called Hydra Network. The beauty about Hydra Network is that they provide excellent offers that are suited especially for email lists. In other words, there are offers that you can include in your newsletters (and also websites and PPC campaigns if you wish) that convert well. Offers are constantly changing too, so there is always something new.

One thing users love is getting something for free. Here is an example of an offer to receive a $500 gift card for filling out some basic information and participating in surveys and sponsor offers.

GreatFood4Free is an independent rewards program for consumers and is not affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by any of the listed products or retailers.

Then all the user needs to do is submit their email address on the first page for you to get paid. It really doesn’t matter if they follow through with all of the requirements as your incentive is to get them to submit their email address. Upon completion of the first page, you receive $1.30 from each participant! So let’s do some quick math: if you have a list with say 10k subscribers and you send out this offer in your newsletter, I would say there is a good chance you can get 1% to fill out the form. 1% would equal a profit of $130.00! That wouldn’t be too bad for 5 minutes worth of work.
