Answer to the question
Consider this scenario for a moment: You’ve put all of the work in creating your website and making content, and then you admire your great work for a few minutes; but then the reality sets in… the reality of the reason you created your site in the first place. Making MONEY! So your next step might just be to ask the all too familiar question. Now what?
Well, the answer to that question is simply, now it’s time for the fun part… Making it make YOU money; but you can’t treat this the same way you might have treated those micro niche sites that were so popular a few years ago. It takes finesse! However, you may be looking for a shortcut, and if you are, I have just the one for you. It’s called ShopABot!
Wanna take a look?
Why not visit ShopABot and take a look at how this software helps to create that shortcut for you while putting money in your pockets at the same time. You’re not going to believe this, but ShopABot suggests the products, recommending them for you based on what’s proven to sell, and get shared by most users; but if you haven’t got access to ShopABot, or want to do it manually you need to be a bit more choosey about the ones you pick, so that you’re not wasting all that work on something that won’t make you money, see what I mean?
Clicking this link could well be that second step that answers your “Now what” question, because it will take you directly to ShopABot where you can get a first-hand view of what many site owners have considered the most powerful, cutting edge, money-grabbing piece of software on the Web today.
What others has said
It is important to point out here that many of the site owners who use this software – including the owner – have suggested that the best way to do things on your blog is to demonstrate the use of the product in some way without making your posts seem like nothing but ads for products you’re selling; and that’s the most unique function of this software.
Let’s say for example, that you want to sell some really cool kitchen gadget. You could make a video of yourself preparing some dish that uses the gadget and shows just how cool it really is. (Alternately, you could embed someone else’s video and just talk about how cool it is in your article.) Or, create a giveaway report teaching something valuable and then recommend your affiliate product as the resource they should use.
At the end of your article, or in the report, add your affiliate link. Do not use banners or anything like that, because you don’t want to seem too promotional, but at the same time, don’t hide that you’re using an affiliate link, because that’s against Amazon’s terms, and could also upset your visitors.
Some marketers promote affiliate products in maybe 1:5 posts while others promote them in 1:10; and while this technique seems like you won’t be making much money, they caution that you should not woory too much, since promoting affiliate links too frequently (over saturating your blog with affiliate product links), people will become blind to them and think you’re all about money rather than user experience. In the long run, you’ll make more money with fewer ads, because more people will visit your site often in anticipation of new content.
Make sure you find the best-of-the-best when it comes to the products you promote, though; and if possible, test each item yourself so you can be sure it really works. An added bonus to testing it yourself is the ability to post your own pictures and/or videos using the product, which will help you seem more authentic and enhance your credibility in its promotion and in your readers’ eyes, thus increasing sales and profits.
Wide-range product prices
Also, be sure to promote products in a wide range of prices. If you’re only promoting products over $100, people will grow tired of it. Not everyone can afford to splurge on expensive items very often. Be sure you throw the occasional $5 item into the mix. In fact, you can even say, “I can’t believe how inexpensive this is!” And don’t worry about the miniscule commission you’ll receive when you promote a $5 item. Many people will end up ordering more than just that $5 commission, and you’ll make money on whatever else they purchase, too!
