When it comes to affiliate marketing many people say “Content Is King”, while I prefer to say “Great Content Is King”, giving people great content is how to begin with Affiliate Marketing as it forms trust among your readers and people are more likely to buy from people they trust.
Review don’t sell a product
Do not make your content appear like a sales letter. Rather use it to give a review of a product you are talking about. Be open and honest and tell the reader what you think without it sounding as though it is a sales pitch. Tell the reader why you bought the product and what it has done for you. Use examples to how to how the product has helped in your life.
Make sure to diversify your products and companies
Try to choose a variety of products from different companies. This has two benefits for you in that if one company disappears, you will not be left high and dry without a product or income. Keep your products relevant to the market you are targeting and never try to sell more than one product at a time in your content. Introduce other similar products over time as many people may not like the first product you talked about but offering other products increases your chances of making a sale.
Free books lead to higher sales
Write a free report or eBook. Tell your visitors they can download it for free and give it away to others. Inside the report or book have your affiliate links. It has to be full of useful content of course or people will not pass it on to others they know.
