What is the best affiliate marketing software?
This is great question. One, a long time ago I had asked myself on many an occasion. In order to best answer this we have to take a look at what is meant by "Affiliate Marketing Software".
There are 2 distinct purposes of an affiliate marketing software.
- From the point of view of a marketer wanting to make "Affiliate Sales" and promote other products and services.
- From the point of view of a "Product Owner" and wanting to attract people who will sell his or her product.
This article will be covering from the "Marketers point of view" thus being one who will go out and promote and sell other people's product's and service's and make a commission or sales revenue by making those sales.
In my opinion after looking and scouring the marketplace for the most ideal affiliate marking software that accomplishes a huge number of strategic marketing tasks that were important to me I had big time trouble finding exactly what I was looking for....
On this journey I did notice one very distinct characteristic that made a big difference. The best affiliate marketing software's should be "Cloud Based Affiliate Marketing Software's".
You see a cloud based affiliate marketing software requires no download and everything is stored 'Off' of your computer which is great for avoiding viruses or cluttering your computer with too much information.
Cloud Based Marketing Software also allows everything to be done inside of the IOT 'Internet of Things' and the most important thing which is all updates will happen instantly and automatically to new updates to the software.
There is no need to re-download or reinstall or update, there is none of that with Cloud Based Marketing Softwares.

What are the attributes of an Affiliate Marketing Software that you should look for?
- Cloud Based (NO DOWNLOAD) Yes, it has to be in the 'IOT
- Internet of Things and off your computer.
- Easy to use - Must be simple, simply put.
- Step by Step - An order and a sequence that makes it next, then next, then next, then RESULT.
- Market Research Component - Must have ability to deeply research your pinpointed target market.

- Social Media Networking - Eh, heard of facebook? How about Pinterest? Twitter anyone? Marketing softwares for affiliate marketing purposes having these social media networks in place really make it powerful.

- Great Training - Great Training is essential for any marketing, course, software, or really anything. It helps to leapfrog and shortcut a process by having the training to get to where you want to go.
How about Marketing Research Software?
Yes, Marketing Research Software is extremely important to any affiliate marketing software platform. You see without knowing the target market, what they are looking for, who they are, how they think, how can we ever expect to get in front of them at the ideal time. An affiliate marketing software should have keyword research and search, Google search, Youtube search functionality to give you as many insights as possible.
Affiliate Marketing Software with Content Creation Ability
Having the ability to create content with your affiliate marketing software is extremely important.
Without the ability to create content, and having content to get in front of potential buyers it would be impossible to earn commissions and sales and affiliate sales.
Where are people going in today's times to find products and services? Yes, Google and Youtube and maybe a few other search engines but pretty much Google and Youtube sometimes some forums.
So content is super key in this equation. Once your have your research done, having the ability to create compelling and engaging content is the next step.
In my opinion there is no better way to create engaging content and informative content than the power of video.
So for me it's very important for an affiliate marketing software and affiliate marketing system to have a content creation or even better a video creation component.
What about a social media networking software that can connect to all my important accounts across the web and assist in my affiliate marketing?
A powerful Marketing software that can connect to Tumblr, Linkedin, WordPress, Pinterest, Reddit, Plurk, Flickr, Pocket, and a ton of video websites.
Plus always adding more networks and staying on top of the landscape of websites that are out online to know which ones are very powerful, rank on google and have an audience.
This is of the utmost importance to an affiliate marketing software as being in front of people on the platform that they choose to search and browse on is 1/2 the battle. The other 1/2 is capturing their interest and having them have that 'aha moment' at the time that they are interested and working to solve a problem, figure out a challenge, or looking for a massive gateway to where they are heading.
Marketing Automation for Small Business in a Marketing Software Platform for Distribution
- Event Scheduling: With today's constant interruption and lack of focus going on in the world when you get to a place and time were you can focus and concentrate and work on your tasks it would be wonderful for a marketing software to have the ability to "Set and Forget" what I mean by this is event scheduling marketing automation. For example let's say you made a video and did the market research and then you are ready to put it out on the web. You could schedule it for next week at 2pm. And then start on the next video and schedule that for 2 weeks out. In one night you could in fact, have a years worth of content once a week be running, uploading, and distributing targeting your most important keywords and market niches.
- Guiding Rules: Marketing guiding rule of thumbs are optimal for an affiliate marketing software because the less you have to thing about the minutia the better. For example let's say that part of the content is best to be only 65 characters and length and not to exceed that in order to get the best desired result. What if a guiding rule popped up on the screen and said, "Your content is too long, think about shortening it" this is an amazing guiding rule now what if that was layered all throughout the affiliate marketing software guiding you along the way. This would be fantastic!
- Research on Screen: An interconnected marketing platform where the marketing research area of the software is also connected to the distribution side of the software making it very easy to capitalize on the hard work of others. This allows you to be a smarter marketer and rather than reinvent the wheel you can tap into a already running tank and jump on for the ride!
- Instant Publishing: This is critical because for any affiliate marketing software or for the best marketing software it is extremely important to have the ability to create results immediately and in the now. Instant publishing is very important and the ability to do event time based marketing scheduling as well so you can continue your work and leverage timing.
- Video Distribution: Don't even get me started with the POWER of VIDEO DISTRIBUTION. It's such a powerful marketing tool right now that it really blows everything else away. With Google's recent acquisition of Youtube for 1.65 Billion it's pretty obvious the power of video in today technology age. Imagine a marketing software for your affiliate promotions that has the ability with 1 click to distribute to multiple video platforms for example Facebook, Youtube, Daily Motion and many others. Talk about Affiliate Marketing Power!
- Social Networking: Absolutely critical. Social networking across mutiple marketing platforms at the same time is essential and such a huge time saver.
- Platform Controls: The ability to control where you want to go and where you do not want to go with your content an media is important to your affiliate marketing.
Imagine an Affiliate Marketing Software that accomplishes all of
these initiatives at the same time!
