Free Advertising for Affiliate Marketing
There is an area of advertising which many don’t consider when they get involved in affiliate marketing. Talk to your friends and family; ask them what they would be interested in buying online?
The majority of people are not interested in running their own business online, and because of that they are not interested in buying books on Internet Marketing. They want to be able to buy things that are practical and items they would buy normally.
Let’s look at an example for the moment. People are always buying gifts for Christmas so build a website that is full of affiliate products that you know all your friends and family want. You can tell them all about the site, and they buy all their gifts from your site(s). Your friends and family are buying the same gifts that they would get in the malls. They might even buy from the same stores, but the advantage is you get the commission.
That is the best form of advertising, and when they find the great service they have, they will also be sending their friends and family to your site.
When you consider all the different things people buy online, then you will see how many products you can try and sell to them. You will be able to see how you can design your site, which will enable people to buy from you time and time again. No longer will you be trying to sell just one book to many people, but you will be selling products that people want on a regular basis.
When you decide to get involved in affiliate marketing, then first consider what your friends and family would be prepared to buy online. Let them all know that your website sells the product they want. Let them know that the cost is exactly the same as the mall, but you get a commission for recommending it. Then use your friends and family for free advertising for your affiliate marketing.
