August 13th, 2010 · No Comments · Internet Marketing

Yes affiliate marketing rocks, but it’s really hard to get started. And that’s because you have a lot of other affiliates to compete with. What you need to do is come up with methods no one else is using. There’s also a lot of information out there about how to do affiliate marketing, so it can be confusing. Well, here’s on simple thing you can do that will put you ahead of the game.

Affiliate videos

The power of video is undeniable. Video online is everywhere because people love it. It’s so much easier to keep people’s attention with video. So why wouldn’t you use it in your affiliate business?

Here’s how to use videos for affiliate promotions:

  • Do a testimonial video
  • Record a walk-through
  • Do an ordering video
  • Record a preview of the members area

Record your testimonial

It doesn’t get any easier than this. Simply turn on your recorder and talk. It does not need to be polished or pro. Just seeing another real person endorsing a product helps your viewers decide to buy. In truth, mistakes and mess-ups just make it more believable. You really can just click record and start talking. If you don’t want to be in front of the camera use one of the other methods.


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 just make sure you’re demoing a good product.


This technique is super powerful. Record yourself placing an order. Nothing inspires your viewers to buy like watching you do it. First, it’s social proof. Once they see you doing it, they feel more secure. It also build your viewers trust. Your advice is easier to trust if they can see you’re doing what you tell them to do. And let’s not forget about good old fashioned envy. People want what they see you getting. You can add additional juice to this one with: In order to get to see the inside, you gotta buy the product.

Sneak peak

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

Anyone can do it!

You don’t need any special training for this. There are simple software programs that make it easy to create videos. The software really does all the work So you don’t have to worry about the technical part of this at all. Remain focused on the benefits:

  • More sales You’ll earn more affiliate commissions when you add video. People like video, so start using it.
  • Less refunds You’ll lose less of the commission your earn. Now they know what they get before they purchase. So less of them will ask for refunds.
  • Outdo your competitors! This is such a simple technique. 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. Not using video is detrimental to you business. So do it!
