Hey guys, Mike here from mrcomputerscience.com.
Incase you don’t know, I love affiliate marketing.
I promote many dozen products from a ton of different affiliate programs.
One thing I constantly have trouble with (and I imagine you do too) is keeping affiliate links organized.
To me, organization is paramount to my success in anything.
If I’m unorganized, I’m unhappy.
What about you, are your affiliate links dismally disorganized?
The first thing you need to do is have a system for keeping track of all your affiliate links.
What I personally do is have ONE excel file with a ton of spreadsheets.
That one excel file contains all of my links that I create period.
And it contains different “Tabs”. (Think of excel tabs as different “pages” or “spreadsheets”).
Pages for my own products, sales pages, thank you pages, redirect pages, squeeze pages, and about pages.
Also, pages for affiliate products, bonus pages, video pages, etc.
The point is, if you want to be an affiliate marketer without going insane, you need to keep your information organized.
Sometimes I’ll write an email and need the URL for one of my affiliate links, or the squeeze page for one of my funnels. So I’ll simply open up that single excel file I have with ALL of my links in one handy location).
So I encourage you to follow suit; with a massive excel sheet (containing different tabs) or even come up with your method.
Whatever your choice, make sure that your affiliate links are well maintained and organized, or I guarantee, you’ll lose your marbles.
As someone who’s been in the tech industry for years, I can tell you I’ve seen more than just a few people lose their marbles over the frustration that technology can prompt (haha. You wouldn’t believe the stuff I’ve seen).
Want to know the affiliate secret to organization?
Plan how your links and URLs will be organized.
Plan it before you execute your organizational hierarchy.
Why you ask? Because if you plan out the organization in your mind, it’s exponentially easier when it comes time to develop your excel sheet, word files, directory, database, or whatever method you can possibly concoct.
Organize the plan in your mind (and on paper) to ensure your plan is optimal, practical, easily implementable, and scalable.
Just remember to research and plan before you develop. (This is true for all things).
PS: One more important note..

The guide can really do you a lot of good, IF you’re organized.
If you’re not organized when you compile and research your affiliate data, you might go insane and lose a few marbles.
You won’t be the first.
Nor the last.
But I hope you can avoid that.
