There are many ways to sell affiliate products online or offline but probably my most favourite way is with website content. When you have a website you have the opportunity with your content to sell an affiliate product in a way that no standard advert could ever do.
If people think you are going to sell them something then there backs are up straight away, they are on the defense but with some well crafted content you can ease their fears before going for the sell and here is how.
Answer A Problem
Because website content has an infinite amount of space (certainly more than a 3 line ad) you can go into a lot more detail. You can do a bit of research and find out what problems your target market has and then talk about this in your content.
Then at the end of your content you can start to reveal an answer to their problem. This answer will also be an affiliate product you are promoting with of course your affiliate link that they can click on.
Review A Product
With your website content you can also review a product and give your honest assessment as to its effectiveness. Naturally you will be reviewing a product that you are an affiliate of and giving them your link to click on.
Remember though that your review has to be honest, don’t just give a glowing report just because you are selling it. If you do and people buy it and its not what you say then your return rates on that product will go up, the company may then change your commission rate and those customers will never return to your website.
Recommend a Product
Very similar to a review as above but this time you really can just focus on the good points. Focus on the stuff that will actually help your visitors. Tell them that it will solve whatever the problem is that they want solving.
Now you might be wondering as to why not just do recommended content rather than reviews but in my experience if you give reviews where you actually say a product has some minus points then people are more inclined to believe you when you also mention the plus points such as in a recommend piece of content.
As with any of the information I provide its only as good as the action you take, so take action now and success will be sooner.
