Looking for Affiliate Offers to promote in your content? Bummed out about the recent cut in Amazon affiliate commissions? Last week I suggested that you look for products to promote outside of Amazon Associated. This week I tell you where to find them.
No matter what kind of online presence you have, affiliate marketing is something that can be done as it boils down to you recommending products to people who know, like and trust you.
An important piece in that equation is trust, and the best affiliate marketers are those who don't abuse that trust. They recommend affiliate products that will help people and make lives better. They provide value by introducing the best things that solve problems.
How to find new affiliate programs to promote:
- Brainstorm the kinds of things that your audience could benefit from.
- Join affiliate networks.
- Contact company websites if they have affiliate programs and ask how you can promote their product.
- Checkout affiliate program directories.
- Checkout well-known affiliate websites in your niche and see what they are doing.
- Checkout well-known recommendation sites.
Affiliate marketing is about teaching people how to use what you're promoting. Always consider what people would ask for help on and what you can teach people to do to determine the product you can promote.
Having a strategy on how to grow your affiliate business is alright but don’t think about it solely in terms of how you can make money. Lead with the goal to help people by stirring them to the very best products in your niche that will save them time, pain or money.
