When you set up your website where your actual affiliate sales are going to take place, you need to pay close attention to how you set up your website. The actual copy of your website is going to represent you, since your customers will likely never deal with you face to face. It very well may be this alone that determines if you make a sale or not. Read on into the following for more on this.
The sales copy itself is of paramount importance
Your marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) efforts may have led someone to your website to buy something. That is great, but it is your sales copy that is going to seal the deal for once and for all.
Because of the importance of your sales copy, you might be tempted to go along with it. Don’t do that. Make it short, sweet and to the point. Highlight the product features that can benefit the consumer, point out the value it adds to their life and then make your call to action. That is it! Much more than that can distract a potential customer.
Your sales copy should always be in a selling mode
If there is any break in the energy or purpose of it, a reader will notice. You will then lose any ground you have made with them, and you can assume you have some leverage just because you got them to your website.
Knowing how much information is too much can be tricky. You want to present enough to make a convincing argument that your product or service will add a value or benefit to the customer’s life, but if you go on too long, they will bore and start scrolling to the end. In this case, you have lost the sale. Try and have folks you know not familiar with your products and services beta read your copy for you.
Do not overwhelm your potential customers
Do not overwhelm clients with the numbers of affiliates that you present on your site. Given how easy and cheap it is to put together a website these days, it is in fact almost simplest and best to have a dedicated website for each affiliate, product or service. This focus and concentration of each site can make search engine optimization a lot easier for the websites you choose to promote.
Advertising on a website, getting started
As far as websites go, they are easy to make, and you can have several, or even sub domains of a single site. They are easy to set up, and are fairly inexpensive! For more information go to our Website Hosting Page.
Having a variety of products from each affiliate can make sense, if they are complementary products. However, it is almost best to target one, or variants within a product line. It is much easier to focus relevant backlinks through article marketing this way, and your customers are deciding if they should buy instead of thinking about which one, they would like to maybe buy.
Finding a good product line can be challenging depending on your niche. I would recommend finding a product on ClickBank, as there are hundreds of items to choose that you could market. Visit our Affiliate Programs Page for a more detailed list of affiliate marketing programs that are free to join!
Keep your website up to date
Your website does need occasionally updated with new copy. This does not have to happen monthly, or even quarterly. However, visitors to the website need to see some sign that your website has been updated in recent history and is an active sale site. So, stick with search engines.
