6 Ways To Lose Affiliate Commission6 Ways To Lose Affiliate Commission

Sure affiliate marketing can be highly profitable but if you're not using the right methods you could actually be driving away your customers.

Here are 6 things to avoid in affiliate marketing:

1) Don't distract visitors with too many offers. You may think by listing a whole bunch of different programs the better your odds of making a sale, but if you give your visitor's too many choices chances are they're going to go into information overdrive and not buy anything at all.

2) Don't go for the sale immediately. People need to be warmed up before they purchase from you. Give them information, advice, substance and then and only then should you make an offer.

3) Don't use exclamation marks!! Exclamation marks and other hype language will make your offer sound like a sales pitch and nobody likes a sales pitch right? Speak in a genuine way and try to avoid too many exclamation marks.

4) Don't Just Let Them Leave. Chances are your visitors aren't going to buy from you the first time around so don't let them leave your website without collecting their email address. You need a way to follow up with them. Send them valuable information through your mailing list along with the relevant offers.

5) Don't OVER sell a product. Product reviews work really well with affiliate marketing but you need to make sure your reviews are honest. Come one lets face it no product is perfect. Be honest in your reviews, if you wish the product offered had a certain function then say so. People will trust you more if they know you're reviews are honest.

6) Don't review products you don't own. This can be a killer. It's so much easier to promote a product you own and use and it will come through in your writing. If you're reviewing a product take the time and make the investment and actually purchase the product and use it.
