Have you read a ton about affiliate marketing? Do you want to start leaving a painless life with passive income? Are you interested in learning how you can take your income to the next level?
No doubt you are, or you wouldn’t have landed on this blog! The good news is there is a better way to join the ranks of millions who do affiliate marketing—but it isn’t the method you’re probably using right now.
Traditional Affiliate Marketing
Most affiliate marketers use flashy landing pages—and I do mean flashy—to get people to click on their links and buy the products they’ve endorsed. Not only does this not work, it often leaves you in debt. Some don’t even test the products they’ve affiliated themselves with before they advertise them to their audience.
That’s a huge mistake!
Honesty is the currency of the new market, and transparency is important. Whether you’re a CPA who wants to offer clients appealing products through various programs, or focused on one single product, email is one tool you don’t want to overlook.
Why Email is the Better Route to Take
How do you get consumers’ emails? By asking them! When people head over to your landing page, one of the first actions you should ask them to take is to give you their email address. This is called a “Email List Sign Up” page. Once you have their email, the next step is to market to them.
Email is definitely not dead. It is the non-intrusive way to market your products or service. Not to mention there is greater flexibility with what you can send and say via email.
Bonus Tips for Using Email:
- It’s all about the headline! Use words that evoke emotion and intrigue, think: Sale, Secret, Must-Have
- Make your Call To Action clear. Tell people what you want them to do and show them with links and proper formatting.
- Personalize your email. Talk to your readers like they’re your best friend. Use their first name and be causal. It works way better than corporate jargon.
Use these tips to level up on your advertising efforts and get the most from your affiliate marketing.
