These affiliate marketing tactics have worked in the past,continue to work today, and will, no doubt, work in the future as well.
By following these three affiliate marketing tactics, you'll be able to increase your sales and be a winner in affiliate marketing.
#1. Use unique, content-rich web pages to promote youraffiliate products. If you promote each product on it’s own web page you will win sales in several ways.
Firstly, by providing products with their own page you'll be able to keyword optimize your pages to gain a high search engine ranking, thereby realizing more traffic which in turn converts to more sales.
Secondly, you can promote your products using product reviews and testimonials, giving potential customers less hype and more substantial information to base their decision on.
Thirdly, by using product reviews you can promote yourself as an expert in your field which will gain trust and confidence from your potential customers. When you accomplish this, not only will your customers buy today, they will come back and buy again and again!
#2. Offer free, viral reports to your readers. If possible position them at the very top of your page so they can't be missed. Create auto-responder messages to be emailed to those who sign up..
Now you have a new list subscriber and a potential customer! Always use an opt-in email for this so your new subscribers know that if they want your free report they will he hearing from you again.
Your report should show how using the product your promoting will solve a problem or problems that customers in your niche might be having. This shouldn't be an advertisement or sales pitch and should not appear as one or your potential customers may be turned off. It should simply be an informational product with minimal but well placed product links.
#3. Articles are an excellent affiliate marketing tactic that provides several benefits. Not only is it a wonderful marketing tool, if well written your articles will improve your website ranking, bringing you even more traffic and more potential customers.
