Affiliate Marketing – The Power of Word of Mouth
The best way to get affiliates for your product is by giving away something for free. This is an excellent way for you to get their attention and get them interested in promoting your product.
Here’s a scenario you can use. Let’s say you’re selling a product that helps you build model homes on your property. So in addition to products that have help you build model homes, you’re also going to offer a free coaching session to help them get started.
In this coaching session you’re going to give them some tips on getting started online, give them some tools for them to use in their model home, and give them some helpful hints as they’re building it. In short you’re going to give them free advice as to what you’ve done. If they want more information about how they can use those tools, you can send them to an affiliate site where they can get more information.
This is great for them and you because you get free marketing with an advise that they didn’t have to pay for.
Here’s a little secret for you.
It doesn’t matter if you sell a product that has help you build model homes or a product that has help you lose 10 pounds immediately. When you send someone to an affiliate site that has help them to lose 10 pounds immediately, and you give them the free advice that you got for free, they will be way more inclined to use the product than someone who sees a website with an ugly piece of software and thinks, “Wow, this site sure does love to scam me.”
This is the power of the word of mouth effect.
If you’ve done your marketing, you’ve given them quality information, they’ve used the tool, they’ve gotten some free advice, and they’ve gotten free training from you, they are way more inclined to purchase your product than someone who sees a piece of junk and thinks, “No thanks, I don’t need it.”
This is a power you’ve just uncovered.
Get out of the way so other people can do the real work.
