Affiliate marketing is very competitive. Since its one of the easiest ways to make money online thousands of people promote all kinds of affiliate products.
Sometimes there are more than 500 or even 1,000 affiliate marketers promoting a product on the same time! This usually happens when there is a product launch. How do you compete with all these marketers?
You give bonuses!
This is another mistake that many affiliate marketers make. Not offering a bonus!
You have to give something that is valuable to the buyers that buy through your affiliate link. That way you will increase the affiliate product or affiliate service value and turn more visitors into a buyer.
So what can you offer? What can you give a bonus to someone that buys through your affiliate link?
A bonus can be something related to the affiliate product. It can be something that will add more value to the current affiliate product. Just think as you were the buyer.
For example if you are selling an ebook about “Dog Health” you can give a “Dog Healthy Recipes” ebook as a bonus. The easiest way to create your own ebook is by purchasing a MRR ebook (Master Resell Rights) or a PLR (Private Resell Rights) ebook. It is not the greatest bonus because other affiliate marketers might give the same ebooks as a bonus but it’s the easiest to create.
Not only ebooks can be given as a bonus. You can create and offer an audio bonus. For example if you are selling a “Dog Training” ebook you can interview the owner of the dog training ebook giving away some extra tips. You can also do an interview with a dog trainer in your town or anywhere in the world through Skype.
Videos are very hot nowadays. So another bonus that you can offer is a video.
For example if you are promoting a “How To Build A Fireplace” ebook you can give a video away. You can create a video that shows how YOU build your own fireplace by using the techniques and steps that are in the affiliate ebook you are promoting. People will love this since they can see EXACTLY how to build their own fireplace. This will not only give an extra value to the product. It will prove to your potential customers that you’ve actually used the product you are promoting. This will definitely increase your conversion ratio.
These are just some examples but there are hundreds of bonuses that you can offer. Of course although I’ve used digital information products in the above examples, you can give a bonus for physical products too. If for example you are promoting a “Laminate Flooring” product, you can give a “How To Clean Laminate Flooring” ebook or a video or something that is related as a bonus.
But remember! The most important thing is to give as more value as you can to the existing affiliate product. Just ask yourself “what else is valuable for my customer and how can I help him the most?” Make sure that the bonus you are offering is related to the affiliate product and will help the buyer.
Well yes a bonus could take some more time and perhaps more money to create it, but it helps a lot. It helps both your buyer and your conversion rate so it definitely worth’s your time and money.
