How many of you reading this have ever tried affiliate marketing? Maybe not a lot, but I still want to touch on this topic. If you’re not familiar, being an affiliate means you are promoting someone else’s product for them, and getting a commission for every sale made.
One of the best ways to send traffic to people’s products as an affiliate is to write articles that have to do with the topic of the product. But how do you write successful articles? It’s simple, just follow the 3 c’s: Caring, Content, And Consistency.
First of all, your articles should actually care about people. For example, if you’re promoting a product that improves your blogging expertise, you want to actually seem like you want to help people. Scratch that, you should ACTUALLY WANT to help people.
The reason people read articles is usually to get information and to get help. Focus on helping the people, and then when you have the affiliate link at the bottom of the article, they might just click through and buy the product. Content, not crap. This one is pretty self explanatory.
It’s like writing a blog post or anything else, you want to write something interesting that will grab people’s attention, not just mindless rambling. And last but not least, consistency.
You should treat affiliate marketing like a job, which means that if you are submitting articles to E-Zine Articles for example( a great site to use by the way), you should try to submit one per day, or once every other day. Just stay consistent and treat it like a job and a real business, and eventually you will get results. I hope this tip helps!
