Affiliate Marketing – How to Write the Perfect Affiliate Post

| March 15, 2017

affiliate marketing for beginners
You already have a blog or website (and if you don’t, you should as an affiliate marketer). You may already publish content regularly. Even so, sometimes you see very little traffic on a post that you thought was really good. What did you do wrong? How can you make that post better? What can you do in the future to create the “perfect” affiliate post that drives a lot of traffic to a service or product you are sponsoring?

The answer comes in a simple 4 words – Think Like Your Reader.

Know your marketplace. What do people in your niche really want? What are the biggest problems they have in their lives? What worries keep them awake at night, tossing and turning? These are the things you want to write about. Provide a lot of value. Write as if you are speaking to the friend of a friend, and are seriously concerned about helping the person.

This is the mindset you want to have. Forget about selling. Forget about making a commission. Forget all about affiliate marketing. Make your content full of information so valuable that someone would pay money for that info. Write to solve problems, the biggest problems on the minds of your prospects, and your affiliate post will be uber-successful.

You should also mention pros and cons. Don’t just talk about a product or service with glowing praise. Talk about the downside as well. This will earn you a lot of points with your audience, and will actually increase the number of sales you make. If the company you are partnering with allows you to use their customer testimonials to promote the product, do that as well.

At the end of your post, simply say something like, “I hope this post helps you in some way. By the way, there is a product or service that I highly recommend that can go even further than this post did in helping you solve a problem in your life. You can check it out here.” Then add a link that refers them to the product.

That’s really all you have to do. But remember, always think about value first, solving a very real and very important problem in your readers’ lives, and the sales will take care of themselves.

Traffic Tip – Make sure your posts are 1,200 words a longer, preferably more than 2,000 words. Google and the other search engines prefer longer posts to shorter ones, and this ensures you will get more free traffic from the search engines.
