Affiliate marketing is one of the popular sources to generate passive income online. Affiliate marketing is not just sharing your product affiliate link on your website or social media channel and hoping someone will click and buy. It is way more than that.
In this article, we will discuss key points, which have contributed to the success of many Affiliate marketers.
The purpose behind Affiliate Marketing
Money-making should not be the primary purpose; instead, it should be helping your visitors by providing valuable content. “Giving Attitude” will do wonders for you. It helps in building an audience.
Choosing the right product for Affiliate Marketing
Choosing the right product does not mean the one which gives you a higher commission. You need to identify which products might be helpful for your visitors and meet their needs. Another thing is that you need to understand product information in detail. It is a good idea to use the product by yourself to get a first-hand review. If you can’t use the product, you can take help from your close friends. It will help you write the right content and convey the correct feeling to your audience. Also, you can show the benefit or result of using that product to your audience. It increases trust and the chance of a sale. You can create and share helpful information about the product and then can provide the link. If a product is awful, then you can damage your reputation by promoting them. Hence we recommend not to market such products.
Epic Post Creation for Product
You can write an EPIC post for your product. Epic posts can include details about the product like specification, How-to-use information, frequently asked questions, troubleshooting resources, etc. It can be a one-stop resource that will help your audience to get answers to all their queries and help them in making their mind to purchase the product. It is a single page that can readily share by your audience to other people who may be interested in that product. It also helps in increasing the Google ranking for your post.
Give away products for free or at the discount price
With your affiliate post, you can run a campaign where you can mention that you have few free giveaway copies of the product and ask your audience can get a chance to win one by leaving a comment. You can try to get products from the company either free or at a discounted rate. Lucky winners will get the free product and will do the word of mouth publicity. This way, you may give away only a few products but will get thousands of likes and comments. It will give you free public attention. People who did not win the product can be your target audience for email marketing with the product affiliate link.
YouTube video creation for product
You can create multiple videos about your product like unpacking video, installation video, how to use video, troubleshooting videos, frequently asked questions, etc. You can provide your affiliate link for the product in the description of each video.
Additionally, you can embed these videos in your epic posts.
The above points are simple. If you follow them consistently, then the sky is the limit in Affiliate Marketing.
