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 promotional product videogreat 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!

  1. Hi Robert, interesting post you have shared up here and I found it helpful.

    1. Hello and thank you for your visit and your comment.
      You are not alone when you say you find it hard to get things up and running as an affiliate.
      Affiliate marketing is like any other job and takes time to master it and get it right.
      The four methods I mention in my article are four of the best ways to get started in as an affiliate simply because they are easy to implement.
      Try them out one at a time though and try to become proficient one before you move on to the next.

      Onwards and upwards, and be successful.

  3. Hi Robert, 

    Great post. Very informative. I particularly like your section on video and audio reviews. I think more people are becoming video oriented when they are looking for reviews. I also like how you break down the correct way to write a product review. It’s not meant to be “salesy” Rather, informational. Then the reader can make an informed decision as to whether the product is a good fit for them.


    1. That’s what its all about Brian – giving people the option of what’s the best fit for them.
      reviews are not about sales.
      With a review its all about reselling the product or service.
      All you really need to do is outline the pros and cons of the product or service and have a link to the merchant/vendors website then its up to the information there whether the person decides to buy or not.
      Hope you’re having a great day.

  4. Yes this is a very good run down and explanation of how to leverage affiliate marketing in your favor. I would say all these methods: writing reviews, articles, making video, and ebooks are very effective. In fact a complex approach could work as well by incorporating all the methods until you find an approach that works for you.

    1. Hello Lee
      No harm in trying all four methods Lee but I personally focused on one method to see it actually working then moved on to the next one and so on and so on.
      All four worked more or less the same but as I am at heart a writer I found the article writing the most rewarding, and there are so many article directories out there.
      The beauty of submitting articles is that once you submit, they are there forever.
      Please visit again Lee and read some more of those Marketing Online articles.
      Enjoy your day and my best wishes for your success.
