Sure Fire Ways To Promote Affiliate Offers
(And Why It Matters)
Many people ask me “How To Sell Products Online” or “How Do I Promote Products As An Affiliate Marketer”? Below I will give you 4 methods that I use on a regular basis that I know work.
First of all, a Marketing Affiliate makes money by promoting and pre-selling the products and services of others. They do not sell anything unless of course they have their own products.
There are many ways to promote affiliate offers including banner ads, pay per click ads and advertising on websites. However, there are other more powerful and effective affiliate promotion strategies you can implement.
Let’s take a look at a few ways how to promote product online or as some would term,
‘advertise as an affiliate‘.
Reviews are one of the most powerful ways to promote affiliate offers. Before many people make a purchase, they look for product reviews to help them make a decision. They use reviews to compare features, prices, and of course to help justify their buying decision.
You can tap into this need by writing quality reviews for the products you represent. A good review will identify the product features and benefits. It will present all the pros and cons of the product in an honest light. Presenting your review in the most unbiased manner possible will help your readers trust you and what you have to say.
When writing your review, don’t make it sound or read like a sales page. That’s the job of the company sales page you’re linking to. The review should be designed to pre-sell the product. And of course, be sure to include a link or two to the product sales page so you can earn a commission.
Just like reviews, people read online to learn more about a problem they have or a desire they wish to fulfill. Articles, designed to inform and help people solve their problems will be read, passed along and linked to. When you include links in these articles to your affiliate products, you make sales. It’s one of the strongest ways to promote affiliate products.
Publish articles on your website, or as blog posts, in your newsletter or ezine, on partner websites, forums and blogs and on article marketing sites that allow affiliate links.
Audio and Video
Just like articles, audio and video content is also a great way to promote affiliate products. Unfortunately, it’s tough to link to products in audio and video. That being said, there are ways to link in audio and video content and you can work around it by referencing a link to the product on your website or blog.
Reports and Ebooks
At this point you might be noticing a trend – content is a great way to promote affiliate products. Reports and ebooks offer a tremendous amount of value to the reader because they take a larger look at how to solve a problem.
They’re more in depth than a standard article. For example a book or report on dog training is going to be a lot more detailed and potentially helpful than an article on the same topic.
Just like in an article, you would include links to relevant affiliate products in the reports and ebooks.
Create Your Own Website
If you’re looking for sure fire ways to promote your affiliate products, you can’t go wrong with content. Any form of content, as long as it offers your readers value and benefit is a great vehicle for affiliate promotion. Get busy creating your content strategy today!
Of course the best way for all online marketers is to make sure to create a website to promote the products they want to make money from.
Best wishes for your success.
