Some Basics for your Affiliate Marketing Blog

Contextual Links are Important: There are a lot of different methods for selling affiliate marketing blog things on your blog but the best way to do it is to include contextual links in your posts. All you have to do is include a link in every post that you write that either reviews the product or talks about an issue that relates to the product. Be sure that you don't deeply bury your links, they need to be “above the fold” in order to get a better response from your readers. A contextual link will always work better than a banner or sidebar ad because the promotion is subtle and not as off putting as something more blatant. Readers will feel quite a lot more comfortable responding to links when they are in context than they do responding to a direct advertisement.

How to place Banners in your Affiliate Marketing Blog

Banners Matter: If you have decided to advertise the products with banners make sure those banners are placed well. Any banner you put up needs to be put in a good position so that it can be seen immediately by your blog readers. As an example, make sure the banners are at the tops of your pages instead of at the bottom. Try not to cram a bunch of banners onto your site–this makes it harder for you to make money because your readers won't know where to click. Limit your product promotion to two products if you choose to use banners. You want to make sure that you only promote the highest quality goods with your advertisements. Every affiliate marketing blog product that you promote on your blog will be seen by your users as your personal recommendation, so be very careful when choosing the product you're promoting.

Ad Bonuses to your Promotion

Promote Bonuses: Even though there are all sorts of different techniques used by Internet Marketers for affiliate marketing blog marketing not all of them are wildly successful. A great way of elevating the chance of making more affiliate marketing blog sales via blogging is to increase the value of the products you promote by offering bonus products. Your affiliate marketing blog product will be a lot more valuable and you'll have far more sales if you add a bonus to it. This bonus need not be extravagant, it just needs to compliment the original product while still offering the buyer much more for his or her money. Just keep in mind that you shouldn't add a bonus just for the heck of it, you have to ensure that your bonus makes your offer stand out of the crowd, and looks appealing to your readers. Using a blog to help you earn affiliate marketing blog income doesn't have to be a challenge, just focus on offering real value to your readers and you'll be fine.

      Hey Bruno, affiliate income is a great way to add additional streams of income. I personally don’t use a lot of banners, but that’s a personal preference. Thanks for sharing.

        I use often banners but mostly at the end. Short time ago I came across this tip with placing the banner at the top.

      Hi Bruno

      Marketing affiliate products on your blog or website could be a nice little earner. I’m not using any banners on my blog at present but I think it’s time to try it out.

      Thanks for sharing

        Hi Riaan, have you ever tried to use banners? For my it’s something I implement on most of my blog posts.

    • Lydia Brown

      I recently decided to post about some affiliate products I thought it might increase the leads as oppossed to the few banners I have. Thanks for confirming the idea.

      • Bruno Buergi

        Hi Lydia, thank you for your comment. Banners is a great way to attract people to go to your offer.

      Hey Bruno

      Totally agree with not over doing it with the banners.

      You go to some blogs and they’ve got like 10 banners all going down both sides and its very distracting.

      One thing that I’ve been doing lately to get more sales is to add a little wording of my own to the banner and at the bottom putting Click here to start (and making it blue)

      Its working for me and stands out amongst the other affiliates that just put them on as is.

      Have a fab day

        Thank you Dawn for your comment. Yes, too many banners are really distracting.
