How to Market Products as an Affiliate on Your Blog Without Being Seen as ‘Spammy’
affiliate marketing for beginners

Your blog is your brand. This is who you are. This is the reputation that you will be known by. The last thing you want to have people think about you is that you will sell anything just to make a commission.

The simple key to promoting products and services as an affiliate on your blog, without being seen as “spammy” or “sleazy” is this …

Be upfront about earning a commission as an affiliate.

This is very easy to do. If you think that you will sell fewer products as an affiliate when you tell people you might make a commission from a sale, you are wrong. You will actually see your sales rise when you are open and forthcoming with your audience. People respect honesty, and when you provide amazing value through the content on your blog, your readers and followers are happy for you to earn a commission off of a product or service they purchase, if that purchase helps them in some way.

This is all you have to say …

“If you buy some of the products I talk about on my blog, I might make a commission. I want you to know that I would never recommend a product or service I don’t personally endorse 100%. The money I earn helps me keep this blog going, providing you with valuable information that helps you _____.” (Fill in the blank with the goal of your blog. E.g. lose weight, make more money, become healthier, etc.)

You can place that disclaimer at the bottom of every page on your blog or website, and on your About Us page.

You should also limit the number of products or services you sponsor.

If every month you are recommending a new product, it could begin to look like you are just after the commission from the sale, and are not concerned with helping your audience. Another way to make sure your audience sees you as really delivering value in caring about them, rather than being a spammer, has to do with how to write affiliate blog posts.
