4 Of Affiliate Marketing’s Best Practices – Offering Your Affiliate Product to the WorldJacob
The fastest way to start earning by selling online is as an affiliate of a product developed by someone else. As an affiliate, your job is to get buyers for the product (also known as marketing the product) for which you will receive a share of the proceeds from the products.
This could amount to 50% of the sale price up to 100% of the sale price (this is possible because the creator of the product knows that they will end up with a list of buyers they can continue to sell to after the sale that you help Produce) .
Affiliate sales without a website.
You could sell as an affiliate without a website, simply by creating a Facebook page or Facebook fan page and placing posts and advertising only on that Facebook presence. But if you plan to expand your reach, if you want to have more control over the presentation of the product, you will need your own website.
Sales affiliated with a website.
Nowadays you can have your own website hosted for a few dollars a month and with a little research you can create your own really nice website with WordPress. There are a huge number of free and paid WordPress plugins to make it easier for you to get the most out of your site for beginners.
If you decide to develop a website, you should consider using a single, unique website to promote each individual product you are marketing.
By selling almost anything when you bundle multiple products that you may be marketing on one page, it will dilute your visitor’s attention and cause confusion. Remember the old marketing / sales adage “a confused mind always says no”.
If you go one step further, you may decide to create a single site and domain name, to target each specific product you are marketing. And most web servers will allow you to add unlimited ‘additional domains’ for free, allowing you to have a single site for each product you are marketing, all for the cost of a hosting account.
Use of the product review as an affiliate marketer.
Having a product review on your website allows you to give your visitors a clearer idea of what the product can do for those who decide to buy.
This is best done when you are illustrating the challenges this product solves for you. And showing them the benefits they can expect to receive from the purchase. (Note that we’re saying benefits, not features, what it does for them, not their parts or what it is.)
It is also great that you can describe the difficulties (read ‘pain’) that you are experiencing now because you don’t have the product yet.
If possible, you should also include testimonials from users who have already used the product. For these testimonials to have a greater impact, you will want to use clients who will allow you to use their names and photos along with their testimonial.

A sales page is, of course, where you will go out of your way to list everything the product does to solve your challenges, and you will have a call to action (a Buy button or link) so they can buy the product.
Affiliate marketing by submitting articles.
But in addition to a sales page, you can also write articles that further establish what the product does to help make your life easier. These articles would highlight any additional use or benefit of the product and could be included on the website as an additional page.
Of course, you will want all pages to be attractive and engaging and definitely always include calls to action on all pages, so they can act on the information, i.e. buy the product.
Whether it’s your sales page or additional item pages; Each should have a headline designed to entice your visitors to read your page more deeply, or perhaps even contact you.
You can use ‘bullets’ to highlight your special points of interest for your visitors. Well-written ‘headings’, ‘subtitles’ and ‘bullets’ will help your visitors / readers learn more quickly what the page is about.
Some people like to read word for word, but most will analyze their writing to find where they want to dig deeper into the information they are providing. ‘Captions’ and ‘bullets’ help them find what they are looking for, to facilitate their decision to buy.
There is a lot to keep in mind when working to achieve online sales success, so try to remember the above as you go along.
