Affiliate Marketers – How to Write Articles That Sell More Products
It’s no secret, you’ve heard it before, articles and content are awesome ways to pre-sell products. When you gain your readers trust and warm them up to the product…PRESTO!…your bank account just had a deposit.
You need to make a plan for your affiliate marketing articles. It’s important to select your topic carefully, offer good correct information, and your article needs to be fun to read. Then you will be able to draw your readers interest to the product.
How to Select Your Topics
Make a list of topics for each of the products you are promoting. Put yourself in the mind of your customer. Your topics should revolve around problems that the product actually fixes. Those topics are the seed for your articles.
Create Good Information
The topics you listed will steer the type of information you will provide. A couple of ideas for simple articles are:
Top ____ Ways to ____
____ Steps to _____
Keep your articles simple. A captivating introductory paragraph, a couple of informative bullet points in between, and a summary paragraph to finish it off.
Remember not to give the whole enchilada. You want to be informative and give your readers a good picture of their problem with a portion of the solution. But direct them to your product for the complete solution.
Compelling Product Links
You will find that the most productive links and recommendations will be in the context of your article. Find an appropriate place in your article and make your product recommendation, something like “_____ is what I recommend most”
At the end of your article is another great place to put an extra recommendation.
Obviously you will be limited by the venue you are posting your article too.
If you are putting it on an article directory you will probably be limited to recommendations in the resource box. If posting to another persons site or ezine they will have their rules. The most freedom is posting to your own site or blog.
