A common obstacle that affiliate marketers have when they first start in the game is deciding how to promote affiliate products. Which is why I’m going to tell you a few different ways that you can take which have proven to be effective.
Different Ways You Can Promote Affiliate Products
1. Email Marketing
Do you have an email list?
Email marketing has proven to be a successful platform for a lot of people to promote affiliate products. Therefore, If you have a decent size mailing list then you should consider using it to your benefit. You can use it to send out broadcasts- every two weeks- promoting a product you’re using to encourage people to buy it.
However, be carful not to spam your list with a new offer every day or week. Although, it won’t hurt to occasionally promote product or services that will be useful to your audience. But be sure that you know your audience well or it could backfire.
For those of you who don’t have a huge mailing list to promote affiliate products, then you could get one! You can do this by using popups to offer freebies or something interesting that will entice new people to subscribe to your list.
Recommended tool for popups is Click.org as they offers a variety of options that can help increase you email list and conversion.
