It is extremely difficult to get started in affiliate marketing. And that’s because you have a lot of other affiliates to compete with. 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.
The power of video is undeniable. Video online is everywhere because people love it. About the only thing that keeps people’s attention anymore is video. So you can put this to great advantage in your affiliate marketing.
Here’s how to use videos for affiliate promotions:
- Do a testimonial video
- Do a video walk-through
- Do an ordering video
- Record a preview of the members area
Do a testimonial video
It doesn’t get any easier than this. Just click record on your web cam and start talking. It does not need to be polished or pro. Just seeing another real person endorsing a product helps your viewers decide to buy. In truth, mistakes and mess-ups just make it more believable. You can literally just press record and talk. Use one of the other ideas if you’re feeling shy.
Record a walk-through
This is a great way to promote something without selling it. You’re taking the role of teacher and showing how to use the product. And while they watch you use it, they think, “I should buy that.” If it’s useful, then what you’re teaching just makes people want it. So pick some really helpful aspect of the product and show how to use that.
Do an ordering video
This technique is super powerful. Record a video of yourself actually buying the product. There is nothing more motivating than watching someone buy something live. First, it’s social proof. In general people are more likely to something they’ve seen other people do. Second, it builds trust. People believe you’re giving them good advice if you take that advice yourself. And don’t forget about the need to “keep up with the Joneses”. 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: If you want to see the inside, you’ll have to order it yourself.
Do a preview video
Here’s an easy way to show the value of the product. In this case you record a screen share of the inside of the product. And show them everything they get by ordering. This one also helps to remove the skepticism. It’s much easier to trust they’re getting something if they actually seen it.
