10 Tips for Promoting Your Affiliate Products

Affiliate marketing is when you sign up with companies to market and sell their products and/or services for a commission. Commissions are generally 25% or lower so be sure to check before you sign up. If you want to make a living online, affiliate marketing can be a good way for you to learn the ropes or add to your existing online business income.

Many of us (me included) make the same newbie mistake. We sign up for any programs we find, slap a banner or two on our website and then wait for the money to come rolling in. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. As with any business, you will need to work consistently and persistently to build your affiliate sales business. Below are ten tips to help you make more sales with
your affiliate marketing business.

1. Sell What You Believe – Selling a product or service that you have actually used and believe in is much more effective than selling a product you have no clue about. Try the product, tell your story and make more sales. Being able to personally recommend a product can go a long way. Be sure to know about your product too, so when people ask you questions you can let them know the information they need. This will help in making more sales as well.

2. Be Selective – Do not join every program you find. Spreading yourself too thin will cause you to lose focus and sales. Find one or two excellent programs and products that you can really spend time and energy promoting heavily. You don’t want to confuse your potential customers with too many offers, ads and products plastered all over your site.

3. Sales Materials
– Most affiliate companies will offer you professionally made sales materials such as banners, ads, sales copy and more. Be sure to take advantage of these if you cannot provide your own. Test and track the ads to find the most effective. Place the banners in different locations on your site and find what works the best. Don’t just paste them anywhere and hope they work.

4. Customer Testimonials – Be sure to use customer testimonials or case studies. Ask the company if they can provide you with some until you start getting some of your own to use. Use the testimonials in whole and snippets in various places you are promoting.

5. Video Marketing – Video marketing can be much more effective than text ads because it allows the customer to actually see how the product is used and how well it works. You can easily make your own effective video with your personal recommendation to go along with the demonstration.

6. Social Sites – Be sure to add videos, banners, incentives, etc. on your social sites such as Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and others. Tweet pertinent info about your product as well. Be sure to connect all your social sites to your site and vice versa.

7. Add a Bonus – Giving a person a little extra incentive to purchase your product is sometimes all it takes. Offer a free ebook, report, gift card, etc. so the customer will be convinced to make the purchase. A little extra push can make a big difference in your total sales.

8. eMail Signature – Your email signature is a sometimes overlooked advertising opportunity. Write a little teaser about your product and/or bonus and add this to your email signature along with your affiliate link. Every email you send could be a potential sale!

9. Article Resource Box – Be sure to incorporate article marketing into your promotion tactics. Add a snippet and link in your article resource box to get people’s attention.

10. Promote to Your List – If you have been online for any length of time, you should have built a reliable mailing list. Send special offers and incentives to your mailing list. Let them know they are appreciated and will receive special offers that no one else will.

Affiliate marketing can help you get started in the internet marketing business or it can help you increase your existing business income. Either way you need to work at it and promote consistently and effectively for it to be successful!

    QR code is a great invention people made. I’m making mobile apps currently and find it really cool to implement QR codes into them. I’m amazed at QR code coupons Snappii app builder allows to create. They are really helpful for small businesses.

    Hi Terri,

    Re: Number 7 – This one should be used with caution as some programs will boot you for incentives. Be sure to read their terms carefully.

    These are great tips with how to promote your products or services as an affiliate partner. You actually don’t even need a website presence at all but it sure helps to have a website from a company that specializes in building affiliate website businesses. It’s a lot easier to get approved for various affiliate programs and also to become partnered with only those that are reputable when you rely on an affiliate turnkey website company to develop your website for you and get you all setup with this.

    avatar Charles says:

    These are really some great recommendations. They all point to the fact that you don’t even need your own website to promote affiliate products.

    Hello Charles,

    I agree! Joining affiliate programs is a great way to get your feet wet when when thinking of starting an online business. I wish you much success!

    You must have a popular website or blog to create real sales.

    avatar Jemma Taylor says:

    it is an awesome post on promoting affiliate products without a website. I liked the use of forums in this case. But I have a few questions though…..Do forums allow to write articles and post affiliate links? Do links in signature in the old discussions also change when I update my signature with new links?

    for word processing apps,

    Muhammad Tehseen u r missing a lot if u r not keeping some major social sites in your mind running your marketing compaign without them is a loss, i can proof

    To say that your post is eye opening would be an undertatement. My business has evolved to where 100% of my launches and promotions are carried out online. The access to a variety of platforms most of which come with little or no cost sets up an interesting set of choices for those looking to boot strap a launch.
    What you have shared here is a method which comes with more cost, but I also would assume the speed at which you see the results and eventually the scale and profitability of the launch is much greater as well. I also like that everyone of these tactics are scaleable.
    I am a couple of weeks from publishing my first infographic, so I was glad to see this new media make the list as well.
    Great post and wonderful overall content on your blog!

    Affiliates have the chance to make money without developing any products, stocking any inventory, without investing thousand of dollars on research or testing; they can look for any product they want to promote.

    avatar Dan says:

    With online marketing becoming such a large part of making money online, there are plenty of scammers on the web. It’s hard to trust anybody but sometimes you discover a hidden treasure in the marketplace which can be truly worthy of your time and effort.

    I’m a big supporter of PJ Gahagan’s stuff. He’s built a well-deserved reputation with the most effective affiliate marketers on the planet. In addition, he includes exclusive case studies and tests that are specifically geared to teach you.

    He provides a free of charge webinar that has been making him hundreds of dollars per day online.
