Products Review and Promotion

Review Products as an Affiliate

I know quite a few people who review products on their blogs, it makes great content and if the product you are reviewing has an affiliate program, can make you a lot of money. You can review anything from software, to bikes, cars, hotels, holidays, food, anything you could think of and it’s all tax deductible (I believe) if you buy something to review.
I personally want to review one product a month, it’s not so many that readers will be turned of but enough that it will make up a high proportion of my income. Doing small amount of reviews means you can pick all the best products and don’t have to speak about negative ones.

Benefits:
  • Great source of income.
  • Converts higher then banner ads and email promotions.
  • Free products sent to you to review.
  • Connect with industry leaders.
  • Get noticed as a top affiliate.
Drawbacks:
  • You can’t always say nice things.
  • If you say bad things, don’t expect to work with that person.
  • Products become irrelevant quickly in some industry’s.

Promote Products as an Affiliate

Another hot topic here on IncomeDiary, it works very well.
In my experience it works best when paired up with email marketing or reviews, placing advertising banners promoting affiliates products do convert well but can be hit and miss sometimes. Over the last year I have done a lot of research into affiliate marketing and put all my findings on Traffic Domination, make sure to check it out!
There are so many ways to go about finding a product for your site, it often depends on your industry. For a fitness blog, I would go to Clickbank, find a product about six pack abs and grab an advertising banner from their resources area and put it up on my website.
You could also do a blog post such as, 7 Ways To Get Six Pack Abs, then at the end, promote the product.

Benefits:
  • Can earn you big bucks!
  • Can get high conversions if your promotions are done right.
Drawbacks:
  • Earnings are not guaranteed, can earn $100 one month, $1000 the next.
  • Great products can have crap converting sales pages.
  • Great converting sales pages can have crap products.
  • Not always the best of resources to promote.
