Remote access programs are software tools that are used by a lot of businesses and individuals around the world. Obviously, selling them is a multi-million dollar industry. Do you want to be a part of it? It is actually a lot easier than you may think. You don’t need to create your own remote access program (this takes at least a few months of effort, plus it involves considerable expenses), but you can become an affiliate or distributor of a company that does. Here’s how to do it:
· First, find an affiliate program
If you look at the website of a software vendor, you will often find that they have an affiliate program that allows you to make money by promoting their products. If you participate in affiliate networks such as Commission Junction or ClickBank, see if there are any remote access program vendors that are present there.
· Look at the various payment models
Merchants that sell Remote Desktop Software and have an affiliate program sometimes offer a few different payment models besides the classic “percentage of sale”. Some of them offer a free trial of their software, which is sold as a monthly subscription rather than a single payment. You may be offered a fixed sum, say $25, when someone you refer to them takes the free trial (usually 1 month) and enters their credit card information. Whether they stay a customer or not, you will still get paid.
· Create a website or blog that is relevant
One way of promoting Remote Control Software software is through a website (portal, review site, blog, etc.) that talks about software and technology in general. If you have a blog, for example, you may write an article about remote access programs and their uses, then insert your affiliate link in the blog post, as well as put some banner ads for PC remote access software on it. Of course, you can also do media buying, which is buying ad space on other websites that are related to software and technology.
· Recommend the software to those you know
If you know of someone that could benefit from using remote desktop software, you could talk to them about it and send them a link. For example, if you have a web design firm and have a client who told you they would like to control their office computers from home, this would be a great opportunity to present them the software that you are promoting and send them your affiliate link.
· Offer a bonus
While this is not allowed by all affiliate programs (check the rules first!), you may be able to give your visitors a bonus if they purchase the software through a link on your website. This could be a free e-book, a course that you created, etc. Anything that would be valuable to your visitors and that they would appreciate.
