“I’ve got my affiliate link. Now what?”
We get that question a lot here at JVZoo.
And, we understand…
Affiliate marketing can be confusing.
Especially if you’re just starting out.
So, today, we’re going to give you some advice on how to promote JVZoo products the right way.
Let’s talk about what NOT to do with your affiliate link.
- Never send your affiliate link to someone who has not given you permission to do so.
We know you want to make money, but honestly… if you’ve ever done that before, how did it work for you?
You probably got told off, unfriended, reported for sending SPAM and/or blocked.
People don’t make purchases from people who randomly send affiliate links through messages, emails, texts, etc.
They buy from people who they know, like & trust.
- Don’t flood your social media channels with your affiliate link.
Again, this goes back to being ‘spammy’ and it’s one of the reasons JVZoo links are often blocked by Facebook or require authentication through a reCAPTCHA test.
People don’t visit social media to see ads. They go to interact with their family and friends.
That’s why it’s called ‘social’ media, not ‘ad’ media.
And while social media is a great way to generate leads & build your business, it must be done correctly.
Invest in the training that will help you advertise correctly on social media and it can do great things for your business.
- Avoid putting your affiliate link on traffic exchanges.
Yes, they are still around and people are still using them. But, they aren’t a very good place to drive traffic to your affiliate link.
One reason is that the people ‘surfing’ other sites are simply not interested in your offer. They’re there for the same reason you are – to get traffic & leads.
They’re busy looking at a timer, not your page.
Another reason is that it could hurt the Seller’s site rankings.
A flood of traffic from a single domain with very short visits will result in a super-high bounce rate.
These are just a few of the things you should NOT do with your affiliate link. Not just because they don’t work, but because doing so may lead to your affiliate status for that product to be revoked by the seller.
JVZoo Sellers want only the best affiliates promoting their product, who send high-quality, targeted traffic to their sales pages.
So, how DO you do that?
Glad you asked!
Here are some great ideas on how to promote JVZoo products like an affiliate marketing pro:
- Build a list and send them promotional emails.
We can’t stress enough how important it is to have an email list.
Email marketing is extremely powerful and is one of the most lucrative things you can use for your affiliate marketing business.
Our most successful JVZoo Users have spent a great deal of time and effort building their lists and use them to generate recurring revenue with affiliate offers.
- Create a blog.
There are SO many ways to use a blog for generating affiliate marketing revenue.
Create content that is geared towards your chosen niche and use SEO to increase your site’s rankings & drive traffic.
Share individual posts, such as product reviews, on social media that include your affiliate links.
Put a lead capture form on your blog to collect subscribers and send them email about affiliate products.
Your blog is a great place to place quality content that includes your affiliate link.
- Create a video review & put your link in the description.
Videos are a great way to promote your affiliate products!
In fact, YouTube gets over 30 million visitors per day and has over a billion users.
That’s a pretty powerful platform to use for generating targeted traffic to your affiliate offer!
- Create a lead capture page & redirect your opt-ins to your affiliate link.
Don’t have a blog yet? No problem!
Most autoresponders allow you to create a simple lead capture page that is hosted by their service.
This allows you to build your email list without even having a website or blog.
These suggestions for promoting JVZoo products correctly all have one thing in common.
Did you catch it?
They all help you establish authority in your niche and increase the know/like/trust factor when it comes to your potential customers.
And, that’s really the key to becoming an affiliate marketing pro.
