Don’t just write it for generating money alone
The best way to promote affiliate program is to write the review of the particular product or service and providing the sales link to the program owner’s website within this review. Affiliate program marketing and affiliate review writing is closely related to each other. But this rule will not be works in all the time but not in all the places because writing the review and positioning the sales will not works for longer time when you are writing the review having the mindset of generating money alone.
When you have such mindset this will be reflected in your writing and that will leads to unfaithfulness of your review. When your viewer doesn’t have trust in your writing then they don’t follow your recommendations even your words.
Make a research what others saying
Before writing the review make a research about the particular product or service, you can use web, telephone, polls, forums, community or any other medium for your research. Analyze the researched ideas and make some decision (Don’t hesitate to discuss about fellow bloggers to get better outcome) before writing the reviews.
Don’t just write in a hurry
The most common horror mistake I have found with the publisher ( I call bloggers and website owners in terms of Publishers ) is writing the reviews in a hurry . I can strongly tell you that If you aren’t ready to spend considerable time to write the detailed reviews your affiliate programs means, you are not ready to gain your customer loyal ship and make money online. So when you are writing the review take some time to research and prepare the detailed review on this. Writing the best few review pages are worth than writing the so many incomplete review pages.
Be personnel with your viewers
When you are writing the review don’t be termed as yourself as supreme, be polite and personnel with your viewers. It not only increases the relationship with your audience but it will make you always having the attitude of continuous learning methodology of yourself. When you are with WWW we are always just the learner no one will be place of genius
Recommend the program that you best experience
I always recommend the publishers to promote the affiliate product in which they having best experience . Because if you have the best experience with particular product or service that then that will be the better product you can promote with your audience because nothing will stands long time than the Truth. For example I am using HostGator for past three years for my hosting and I surely recommend it to my viewers because I having positive experience than any other providers those I have met in the previous years. So don’t just promote the product for making money alone at least you may try the product before writing such reviews
Write the both advantages and Limitations
When you are writing the reviews don’t just list out the advantages of the products or services that you are reviewing but also mention the limitations. Because it always good practices that increase your trust value and avoids the return back the services when your audience found not particular product or service suitable for them after buying it
List out the Benefits
The best part with being successful with your affiliate marketing campaign is to list out the benefits of getting the product or service because most of the people will not purchase the products until they feel it’s so important them. So when you are promoting the products you must show or explain that how its going to be important with them.
You can use charts or tables to visualize the features of products and you can use video podcasts, Flash presentations to grasp the attention of the viewers
Create the urgency
Readers will not buy the items immediately until then if they feel that the purchase of the product is immediately required. So you need to create the urgency to buy the product immediately when they are viewing the posts (but Don’t over push and Don’t try to blame).To better assist this you can watch out your program owner website for availability of any limited time offer, if there is then you can take the chance to grasp it . And also some program owners offers custom coupon code where you can set the name, expiry date for the coupons you can also use this option to increase the urgency of the sales
Provide Exclusive offers
If you really want to make serious sales then you must ask the following question yourself
Why should the viewers buy from my website rather than buy from program owner’s website directly?
If have comes with various reasonable and advantageous answers then you could became the excellent winner of the sales.
Few years back I have bought Cpanel license for setting up my own Linux hosting account for my client project, I have bought license from the reseller of Cpanel license company rather than the program owner ( Cpanel) I well aware that they are the resellers of the company but why I have chosen them over the service providing company is
Reseller Company offering more support channel than the service originating company
It made me the decision of going with their service rather than going with service originating company (clearly it my view only, other person’s view may different)
So you have to compromise your readers to buy from their websites and another point now you are improving your brand name.
