How much time do you spend in locating the affiliate information that you need each day? When you need an affiliate link for your list marketing email, can you locate it very easily? If finding these vital bits of information is taking you time then you need to organize your online business affiliate information to save time and therefore money.
In the business sphere there is no more important commodity than time, and saving it will also save money in the long run.
It is therefore vital to always be implementing strategies that will save you time in your online based home business.
This strategy leads us to ask the question how can I save time in my online business? The first thing you need to look at is to find out what activities are taking you time to do.
Make an accurate record of all the tasks you do in your online home business and note down the time you take to do each of these tasks.
Next you can analyse your results and pick out those areas where time is being spent.
As a result of doing this simple exercise you will find that if you do not organize your online business affiliate information, this will be an area in which you waste loads of precious time.
As an affiliate marketer you will have many affiliate links.
These links will be the raw affiliate links, the cloaked equivalents and the shortened versions.
There will also be sales site names for the various affiliate products you promote and the links to the tool boxes for each of those too.
Unless you have taken the time out to organize your online business affiliate information so that it's in one central area, I bet you are wasting loads of time here.
As affiliate marketing is all about promoting your affiliate products at every opportunity, it makes sense to have all that information in one area, where you can get to it very easily and quickly.
In this way you can always be in marketing mode with all that you need at your fingertips.
As an ex bookkeeper, before I started working online, I have always used spread sheets to record all manner of data.
Now I know that spread sheets seem to have two opposite effects on people, some love them and the others hate them! Even if you are one of those who hate them, you can still use them as a form in which to record the data.
It is not necessary to know how to use the various functions that spread sheets have.
All we are doing are using the capabilities of spread sheets to store the information in one place.
If you use the Google Docs spread sheet system then you will be able to access that information where ever you are working.
You can set up the column headings to organize your online business affiliate information such as product name, login details, passwords, usernames, affiliate links and any other information you think you may need.
The spread sheet system is so much more adaptable than a software based program can ever be.
You can easily change and adapt the spread sheet to fit your own particular online business.
A software based system is always going to be more rigid and will require coding to be adapted.
To save time and money become more efficient by organizing your online business affiliate information with a spread sheet based system.
