Make a lot more affiliate marketing sales by not selling anything. If this sounds a bit crazy let me explain.
Affiliate marketing is when you promote products or services, and earn a commission when a purchase is made via your referral link.
Becoming a successful with affiliate marketing takes a lot of work and effort.
There’s also probably lot of competition so it’s going to take you time to start earning reasonably regular affiliate marketing commissions.
However, affiliate marketing is still one of the most lucrative and easy ways to get started online.
Many people use their blogs for affiliate marketing.
What may be surprising is that, from my experience and learning from the leading bloggers in my niche, you will sell a lot more of your affiliate offers if you DON’T try to sell them on your blog.
I know that many affiliate marketers will disagree with me.
To be successful with affiliate marketing and your blog you need to be continually developing relationships.
Success as a blogger as well as an affiliate marketer relies upon your ability to consistently be seeking out potential connections online.
If you are relatively new to the blogging world then you need to be consistently reaching out to folks in your niche and be building authentic relationships.
These relationships will form a critical part of your online reputation for being trustworthy, competent and generous with our support.
This is the basis of your long-term success with affiiate marketing.
Don’t Ruin All Your Hard Work with stupid, greedy and aggrssive affiliate marketing
After doing all the hard work of building your reputation don’t ruin it with stupid, greedy and aggrssive affiliate marketing
Selling affiliate marketing products directly on your blog can be a “triple whammy negative” for your blog and your reputation.
Firstly selling on your blog can destroy the level of engagement on your posts.
Think about this. What happens when you do all the research and hard work to present valuable and relevant content and then roll it into a sales pitch or an ad at the end of the post?
My experience (limited as it is) showed me that it will definitely stop people from commenting.
Not only that.
Because of the “sales pitch” you introduced into your post folks are far less likely to share your post in social media.
So to increase the number of sales you'll get from affiliate marketing, don't sell at all on your blog.
