Sneaky Affiliate Tricks
It is extremely difficult to get started in affiliate marketing. This is because there are already a lot of people doing it. The challenge is to try and outdo other affiliates and think of ways to do a better job promoting. It’s also hard to figure out what to do because there’s a lot of information out there. Here’s one trick that almost no one else is using.
The power of video is undeniable. Video online is everywhere because people love it. Keeping people’s attention is so much easier using videos. So using it in your affiliate promotions is a no-brainer!
Examples of how to use video for affiliate marketing:
- Do a testimonial video
- Do an ordering video
- Record a preview of the members area
It doesn’t get any easier than this. Just turn on your web cam and talk. Don’t worry about quality. Seeing a real person on the other end helps your viewers make a buying decision. And honestly, if you mess up it just makes it seem more authentic. You really can just click record and start talking. If you don’t want to be in front of the camera use one of the other methods.
Record a walk-through
This one is a little more subtle. You’re taking the role of teacher and showing how to use the product. And while they watch you use it, they think, “I should buy that.” If the product is useful, watching the tutorial makes them want to buy it. So just make sure you’re demoing a good product.
Do an ordering video
This one is killer! Record a video of yourself actually buying the product. There is nothing more motivating than watching someone buy something live. First of all it’s what’s called “social proof”. Once they see you doing it, they feel more secure. Second, it builds trust. Your advice is easier to trust if they can see you’re doing what you tell them to do. And finally, it creates envy. It’s simple – you have it. Now they want it. To really cap this one off, end your video with: You’re gonna have to place your own order if you want to see the members area.
Here’s an easy way to show the value of the product. In this case you record a screen share of the inside of the product. You show them the entire contents of what they get. It also reduces the reservations of skeptics. It’s much easier to trust they’re getting something if they actually seen it.
