Doing business on the web is synonymous with competition, and that is especially true with affiliate marketing. The challenge you’re facing is how to successfully promote products that might be quite common in a way that’s original and attention grabbing. If you’re selling a product that’s popular, you might be competing with a huge number of other affiliates -so relying on generic sales pages is going to bring limited results. This doesn’t mean you should give up your dream of being a wealthy affiliate, only that you have to put on your thinking cap and come up with some creative ideas. So here are some ideas you can check out and maybe put into action.
There is some wisdom in straying from the well-worn marketing path. If you have an advertising campaign, your ad needs to be the one that everyone sees. Anyone that does affiliate marketing for a living knows that, without novelty, without thinking outside of the box, they will not succeed. You should start with adding videos to your website, and configuring it so that its appearance and content really stand out. In fact, experiment with a site that is equal parts video and text. You should also remember that your videos are considered content, so everything on the site is to help the reader, not sell them. This format will allow you to provide content and have a little fun at the same time. You will see an increased amount of traffic, and your bounce rate will be better than ever.
Here is another cool idea that is not used much except maybe by those who are well known. When you do videos, you should try to make them into product presentations. The video is basically a review of a product coming from your own unbiased viewpoint. The presentation should be a combination of you speaking in the video, and then switching to screenshots of the product itself. The more creative you become, you will slowly begin to make unique videos that everyone will love. When you are able to do this proficiently, you can fill entire websites with reviews on affiliate marketing products. It really is very useful.
So if you have an e-mail list, and you want to do affiliate marketing, this next strategy (which was created long ago) can probably work for you. The strategy has to do with throwing a product party. You have probably done one yourself. What you can do is make a video that is similar to the product review, but you market it to your list as a product party. All of the people should be sent the invitation, but limit the number of attendees that can actually see this video. The scarcity factor is what you’re shooting for. If you had a few bonuses, something that only attendees can get, this will motivate more people to come.
Writing effective presell copy is something that almost everyone can do regardless of their experience. People that are in IM should always desired to be better, to try to improve their skills in this industry. You can also find a few good instructional ebooks on the subject, too. So don’t be shy about going forward, learning and then putting it into practice.
