Effectively Sell Affiliate Products:

Thank you for your interest in our affiliate product. We’re thrilled to have you on our amazing team of bloggers. Whether you’re new to selling affiliate products or just need a refresher, here are a few tips for effectively and authentically advertising products via your blog.

  1. Go Authentic: Write a post that offers information, a recipe, or tips on the affiliate product topic. For example, if you’re planning to promote my ebook Real Food Challenge: A real food lifestyle in 12 days, you may write a post entitled “3 Effective Strategies for Maintaining a Real Food Lifestyle”. Offer helpful tips and when appropriate mention the book with your e-junkie link. Authentic posts with evergreen content often sell products better than reviews, which get buried in your archives. Plus, you’re able to offer quality information your readers will love.
  2. Take Side Action: Placing a simple banner on your sidebar is an easy way to promote an affiliate product that fits your blog/audience. I prefer to keep all my affiliate books in one location on my sidebar with the title “Books I Love”. Simply upload a banner or a picture of the book and your E-junkie affiliate link. Easy peasy.
  3. Take Post Action: Similar to placing a banner and link on your sidebar, adding an affiliate banner at the end of a popular post, with a similar topic as the book, is an easy way to make a sale. Simply add a banner with your e-junkie link and a title, such as: “More Information on Planning Real Food…”.
  4. Email Promotion: If you have a newsletter, send out a blurb about the book to your readers. Explain to your readers what the book is about and why you love it. Include a call to action, “Learn More…” (with your e-junkie link) and a banner.
