According to a survey completed by CNBC, more than 81% of Americans feel a recession coming and have started to change their spending habits to reflect that. The consumer price index has shown that inflation is currently the highest it has been since the 1980s coming in at 8.6% at the end of May of 2022.

Affiliate Tip of the Month

Fight Entropy – Consistency Is Key

Fight Entropy!
Fight What?

We’re not referring to the Physicists’ definition of the thermodynamic concept of course. What we are referring to is the natural tendency of things to progress from order to disorder.. the concept commonly referred to as "Entropy". This concept applies to every aspect of our lives, however, it is very important to be acutely aware of it in the context of successful affiliate marketing.

Your first defense against entropy when promoting Helium 10 is establishing a promotion strategy with a long-term vision.

At all times you want to literally have an outline for at least 1 month into the future. The types of content you want to create, on what subjects, and the channels where you will publish. You want to envision where your audience is today, what is interesting to them now, where you can take them in the future and what will be interesting to them then.

Your second defense against entropy is to make the commitment to stay organized.

This one is key to fighting almost any kind of entropy, and you can get extremely broad with it, but to break it up into some relevant aspects of an organization as they pertain to affiliate marketing:

Think about the way you organize your content and where you place your CTAs. Have you led with enough value, have you made the emotional connection with your audience? If not, your CTA is unlikely to convert.

Organize content chronologically. Whether it be videos, blogs, or course modules, make sure to organize chronologically so that people who dive into your more advanced content in the future can go back and consume your earlier publications. (Pro-tip, you can do this via playlists on YouTube).

Organize your schedule and content pipeline, to give you enough content to deliver on time. Create content ahead of publication to avoid delays in getting it out.

Your third and perhaps most important defense against Entropy is consistency. You may have heard the phrase “Consistency is Key.” It's very true in affiliate marketing success.

Even if your content doesn’t always hit its mark and convert if you are publishing consistently, you are not only going to keep your audience engaged and growing, but you are also going to juice the internet algorithms on the platforms you are posting.

There you have it. If you can fight entropy, or in other words fight disorder in your affiliate marketing efforts by having a clear vision, a fleshed-out strategy, staying organized, and remaining consistent, you will see success!
