Sneaky Affiliate Tricks

Affiliate marketing can be very difficult to break into. This is because there are already a lot of people doing it. In order to survive you have to beat your competition. And the sea of information about this doesn't make it any easier. Well, here's on simple thing you can do that will put you ahead of the game.

Video marketing

The power of video is undeniable. People love watching videos and that's why they're everywhere. It's so much easier to keep people's attention with video. So why wouldn't you use it in your affiliate business?

Examples of how to use video for affiliate marketing:

  • Testimonials
  • Record a walk-through
  • Record the order process
  • Sneak peak

Record your testimonial

This is probably the easiest of all. Just turn on your web cam and talk. It does not need to be polished or pro. Listening to your honest endorsement makes your viewers feel comfortable buying. And the mess-ups or mistakes just make the video more real. You really can just click record and start talking. Use one of the other ideas if you're feeling shy.

Do a video walk-through

This is a great way to promote something without selling it. Make this more like a tutorial helping them use the product. And seeing it being used is a great way to make people want to buy it. If the product is useful, watching the tutorial makes them want to buy it. So pick some really helpful aspect of the product and show how to use that.


This technique is super powerful. Record yourself placing an order. Watching you make a live purchase will inspire your viewer like nothing else. First of all it's what's called "social proof". Once they see you doing it, they feel more secure. It also build your viewers trust. People believe you're giving them good advice if you take that advice yourself. And let's not forget about good old fashioned envy. It's simple - you have it. Now they want it. You can add additional juice to this one with: You're gonna have to place your own order if you want to see the members area.

Sneak peak

This one is perfect for building up the value of what you're promoting. You do a tour of the members area. You show them the entire contents of what they get. And it helps soften the skeptics. Once they've seen the back-end, they know it's real.

It's easy!

There's no technical knowledge required. There are simple software programs that make it easy to create videos. Really, the software does all the work. So please don't let technical worries slow you down. Just focus on the benefits:

  • Increase sales You will increase your affiliate sales when you start using videos. People love video, so please use them.
  • Lower refund rates You'll also have less of your commissions taken back. Now they know what they get before they purchase. So, very few of them will cancel their order.
  • Outdo your competitors! Adding video is so simple. But pretty much no one does it. So, you'll be way ahead of the crowd.

Get started right now and take your affiliate marketing to the next level. The bottom line is that if you're not using video, you're losing money.
