Using Articles to Sell Products Online

 

Articles are a great way to promote your favor product or affiliate program. You do however need to be careful not to sell directly in the article or add a direct affiliate link in the resource box. Work on promoting a list at YOUR site which you then use to promote your affiliate links to over and over in regular ezines and posts

Heres a simple system to use articles to sell afffilate products online.

  1. Select the Product - this method works for all types of products
  2. Define your strategy to provide useful, but incomplete information. This leaves the reader wanting to know more. You can use this approach to sell books, products, reports, ecourses etc. You need to include the offer to find out more in your resource box - not the article.
  3. Create a Tutorial Type Title - such as "How To...." or " 5 Powerful Ways to..." or "The Secret of....." etc. The title should reflect an idea, method, tip, step-by-step or strategy worth sharing. This is the foundation of your offer
  4. Write your article. Write 1-2 short paragraphs for each of your points. Make it good quality information, not the empty articles that scream advertising in many directories. Use either:
    1. A tutorial step by step lesson
    2. Provide a valuable tip that makes the product work better
    3. Rework a chapter or two from your book and refer to the source in your article
    4. Cover the basics of something, then in the resource box add how to get more advanced knowledge.
    5. How to profit from using or learning something, then where to get it in the resource box
  5. Proof Edit - Make sure your article is well written, is persuasive in developing its value, adds proof to your heading, and promotes your offer.
  6. Submit - to 5-6 article directories, announcement lists and ezine directories. Then publish it to your own newsletter. If you publish it on your site, rewrite it slightly to prevent duplicate content trigger.

Remember, the aim of your article or blog is to presell the reader on the idea that they are going to need your offer. If you don't provide them with quality information they will not develop a quality perception towards your product offering.
