How To Promote Your Affiliate Products

by Mavis Nong on November 26, 2010

I recently wrote a post about the fundamental principles of affiliate marketing. Now, a question that arises is “what effective ways can you use to promote your affiliate products without ticking your prospects off?”

The first step you need to take in order to make money in affiliate marketing is to choose a market. You should decide what type of product you want to promote. Affiliates can promote nearly any product. Next, you need to sign up for an affiliate marketing program. The number of these programmes is increasing rapidly on the internet. It’s now very easy to find and promote a suitable product, which is in demand.

So, how do you put your product(s) in front of millions of potential customers?

1. Blogging

You can use your blog by adding a page for your affiliate products and and by strategically adding banners as well. A word of caution though, don’t annoy your readers with your banners. They will not stay on your blog if the banners are in their face. You can also write reviews about the products that you are offering. Your goal should be to get free traffic from the search engines through your content related to your target market and products.

2. Article Marketing

You can also write articles about your products. Your goal should be to share great content with your target market and include an affiliate link in the resource box. If they like what they are reading, they will click on your affiliate link and buy How To Promote Your Affiliate Products

3. Classified Ads

You can also take advantage of the sites such as Craigslist and USFreeAds as they attract a lot of traffic. The potential to make money using these is huge. When you upgrade to the premium option with USFreeAds, you get the opportunity to spice up your ad with different features 8)

4. Pay Per Click Advertising

You can use to advertise your products, however, you will be pay for the clicks. A word of caution: you have to learn this strategy before you dive into it. It can be very intimidating and costly if you don’t know what you’re doing. There are different platforms where you can use this strategy, however you need to be careful with Google as they have changed their rules. Do things the right way and don’t try to outsmart Google!

5. Auto Responders

Another way to promote your affiliate products is the use of follow-up emails and broadcasts. Here you’d be targeting your subscribers. Not to say that you should bombard them with one offer after the other and end up confusing them. The key here is to share a solution to a common problem and then recommend a product to help with that. And your subscribers are more likely to buy from you if you demonstrate how it has personally helped you. They will appreciate that you are only trying to helping them rather than just to make money How To Promote Your Affiliate Products

Remember that your success in affiliate marketing will be dependent on your hard work, positive mindset and determination. Once you have laid the foundation, and put hard work into it, then you’ll be able to see results.

Hi there Mavis it’s nice meeting you. Marketing affiliate products is always a hard job,. I remember when I first start3ed blogging I was right into affiliate revenues but ti’s so hard I eventually gave up. I sated going with PPC programs like Google etc… Now I use Kontera in line text ads and that’s been preforming great for me.

The only affiliate I have had great success with is Elegant Theme program. but ever since he upped the prices of his themes I haven’t gotten one sale.

Great tips for all the bloggers out there looking to increase affiliate revenue. I tweeted it for ya and I’m following you on twitter now.

even if I don’t sell any affiliate products, I find your advice useful, because a lot of these avenues you mention can be used for building an MLM business as well, for example blogging and/or article marketing.

Thanks for sharing your insights.

Hi Mavis,

Those are 5 great ways to promote affiliate products without annoying readers.

You’re right to use caution with each of these methods. Even with the auto responders, it may be tempting to promote, promote, promote, but that is one of fastest ways to lose subscribers.

Wonderful tips once again!

Hi Mavis, affiliate marketing is very promising. I only use blogging to promote my affiliate product and now it has surpassed my adsense revenue. Craiglist or USfreeads is kind of new marketing method for me, how to use them to promote my affiliate product?

Hey Mavis,

That’s a useful round up of ways to promote affiliate products. It’s true there’s a danger of being too ‘in your face’ with banners and promotions, so strategies like you’ve mentioned will help with that problem.

I like Article advertising and pay per click advertising. I think this way to promote affiliate product made sense. I always wanted to earn more and to have a lot of traffic on my site but my current technique didn’t work.

Mavis, great article.

Apparently, this is exactly where the market has reached in 2011- flexibility in choosing the affiliate platforms and combination of networks, as well as the products (the matrix is more complicated).

The ever increasing coupon business could be holding a niche for affiliates that are willing to work hard for their money, promoting services and other under-promoted products. we have just opened up an amazing opportunity for affiliates to sell customized websites, not exactly a product (it’s more a service really) to get it out there using traditional (yes, combined affiliates is really the key) affiliate networks.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Keep up all the good work.

Brian.
