What does it take to become a successful Affiliate Marketer? What are the ingredients of an affiliate marketing success story? Is there a shortcut to Affiliate Marketing glory? All these questions play around in the minds of affiliate marketers who want to make it big in this business. Although affiliate marketing is touted as one of the easiest and most effective ways to earn money online, it is not as easy as it sounds. The wise affiliate marketer plans every action and executes it the best way he can. He should also maximize the potential to earn by utilizing the right tools necessary for a successful Affiliate Marketing business. We have consulted some of the most successful affiliate marketers in the business and below are the top three necessary tools for a successful affiliate marketing business.

Important Tool #1 - Your Own Website: Your own website is by far the most important tool. The first step in any successful affiliate marketing business is building a professional looking website. Your website is the starting point of all your marketing efforts. Thus, you must first build a user-friendly website, which will appeal to your prospects and encourage them to click on the links to the products and service you are promoting and make a purchase. So, the first thing you need to do is concentrate your efforts on building a website that will offer your market what it needs.

Remember, almost all web users go online to look for information, not just to buy something. Above all else, make sure your website full of original, relevant content. People love quality content and on the internet content is still king, good content will not only build your credibility, it will also help you to gain higher search engine ranking and generate free traffic. By posting useful and relevant articles, you establish yourself as a credible expert in the field, making you more trustworthy and people will be more likely to purchase the products you are promoting.

Important Tool #2 - Incentives: The internet is a very competitive world. You need to stay ahead of your rivals to make sure that you get significant share of your market. So, you must use everything within you power to encourage people to visit your site and click through to the websites of the products you are promoting. By building an opt-in email list you can start to gather prospects. Offer a newsletter or better yet, offer incentives to your prospects to encourage them to subscribe to your newsletters. You can present free software, access to exclusive services and other freebies that will be helpful to them.

Important Tool #3: Link Popularity: Once you have set up your website you are going to need traffic, unfortunately 'build it and they will come' doesnt apply here. It cannot be emphasized enough how important it is to drive highly targeted traffic to your site. Attracting the right people should be the first step you take. Do everything you can to achieve a high search engine ranking. Link Popularity is one of the factors that search engines use to determine search engine rankings. The more links you have pointing to you site, the more popular you site is. Therefore, to enhance your link popularity, you must launch an aggressive link building campaign.

One of the best ways to do this at no cost at all is by submitting articles, with your website's link at the resource box, to e-zines and free article sites. You will not only gain exposure, you will also have the opportunity to advertise for free, just include a link back to your site. The more sites you submit your articles to, the better your link popularity is. Make your articles original, relevant and useful so that more websites will pick it up and post it.

These are just three of the many tools that you as an affiliate marketer need to use to maximize your earning potential. You can always explore other ideas and adapt other strategies that you think might help you become a high rolling affiliate marketer.
