Sneaky Affiliate Tricks

· No Comments

Affiliate marketing can be very difficult to break into. And that’s because you have a lot of other affiliates to compete with. In order to survive you have to beat your competition. And the sea of information about this doesn’t make it any easier. Here’s one trick that almost no one else is using.

Video marketing

The power of video is undeniable. Video online is everywhere because people love it. About the only thing that keeps people’s attention anymore is video. So why wouldn’t you use it in your affiliate business?

Here are a few ideas for creating affiliate videos:

  • Testimonials
  • Walk-throughs
  • Do an ordering video
  • Sneak peak

Record your testimonial

This one is super simple. Just click record on your web cam and start talking. It does not need to be polished or pro. Just seeing another real person endorsing a product helps your viewers decide to buy. And honestly, if you mess up it just makes it seem more authentic. You can literally just press record and talk. And if you don’t want to show your face, use one of the next ideas.


This is a great way to promote something without selling it. You’re taking the role of teacher and showing how to use the product. And seeing it being used is a great way to make people want to buy it. As long as the product is good, the tutorial makes them want it. So, obviously, pick a good product to demo.

Do an ordering video

This technique is super powerful. Do a screen capture of the ordering process. There is nothing more motivating than watching someone buy something live. First of all it’s what’s called “social proof”. In general people are more likely to something they’ve seen other people do. It also build your viewers trust. They are much more likely to take your advice to buy when you’ve taken it yourself. And finally, it creates envy. People want what they see you getting. You can add additional juice to this one with: If you want to see the inside, you’ll have to order it yourself.

Do a preview video

Here’s an easy way to show the value of the product. You do a tour of the members area. You show them the entire contents of what they get. It also reduces the reservations of skeptics. Once they’ve seen the back-end, they know it’s real.

You can do this!

There’s no technical knowledge required. Anyone can create stunning videos with some easy-to-use software. All the work is done by the program. So please don’t let technical worries slow you down. Keep focused on the rewards:

  • More sales Using videos in your affiliate marketing will dramatically increase your sales. Start using videos because people love them.
  • Lower refund rates Less of your commissions will be clawed back, too. Your customers will know what they’re getting into ahead of time. So they’ll be less likely to refund.
  • Rise above the competition! This is a really easy thing to do. But pretty much no one does it. This puts you out in front of the rest.

So get serious about your affiliate business and add video in now. The bottom line is that if you’re not using video, you’re losing money.
