It is extremely difficult to get started in affiliate marketing. The reason is because there is a lot of competition. In order to survive you have to beat your competition. There’s also a lot of information out there about how to do affiliate marketing, so it can be confusing. Here’s one trick that almost no one else is using.
Examples of how to use video for affiliate marketing:
- Do a testimonial video
- Record the order process
- Record a preview of the members area
It doesn’t get any easier than this. Just turn on your web cam and talk. Don’t worry about quality. Listening to your honest endorsement makes your viewers feel comfortable buying. In truth, mistakes and mess-ups just make it more believable. You really can just click record and start talking. If you don’t want to be in front of the camera use one of the other methods.
Do a video walk-through
This technique works slightly more subconsciously. Make this more like a tutorial helping them use the product. And while they watch you use it, they think, “I should buy that.” If the product is useful, watching the tutorial makes them want to buy it. So just make sure you’re demoing a good product.
Record the order process
This could be the most powerful method of all. Record a video of yourself actually buying the product. Watching you make a live purchase will inspire your viewer like nothing else. In the first place it acts as social proof. In general people are more likely to something they’ve seen other people do. Second, it builds trust. They are much more likely to take your advice to buy when you’ve taken it yourself. And finally, it creates envy. They see you getting the satisfaction of making the purchase and that makes them want it. You can add additional juice to this one with: In order to get to see the inside, you gotta buy the product.
This is a great way to build value. You do a tour of the members area. They get to see everything they’ll receive when they order. And it helps soften the skeptics. Once they’ve seen the back-end, they know it’s real.
You can do this!
You don’t need any special training for this. There are simple software programs that make it easy to create videos. Really, the software does all the work. So please don’t let technical worries slow you down. Remain focused on the benefits:
- More sales You will increase your affiliate sales when you start using videos. People like video, so start using it.
- Lower refund rates You’ll lose less of the commission your earn. Your customers will know what they’re getting into ahead of time. So they’ll be less likely to refund.
- Rise above the competition! Adding video is so simple. And almost no one is doing it. So, you’ll be way ahead of the crowd.
So get serious about your affiliate business and add video in now. It’s your profit that’s affected by not taking action.
