Increasing your affiliate sales on WarriorPlus is pretty much the same as increasing your sales on most other affiliate platforms.
There are a few rules to follow and a few actions you must undertake to improve your chances of success.
Initially, your efforts may seem like they’re not yielding results. Don’t lose hope. You don’t plant the seed and reap the fruit on the same day.
Follow the tips below consistently and your business will grow roots. With time, your efforts will snowball and you’ll see results starting to trickle in and after a while, you’ll make it rain.
1. Have a blog and/or video channel
Having a hub site where you share marketing related information, product reviews, etc. is one of the best ‘investments’ you can make in your business. It will take effort, but it’s worth it.
You may also wish to have a YouTube channel where you make videos sharing value and also review videos that promote products.
These web properties not only make you look like a legitimate affiliate, but will also create passive income, if you rank for the required keywords. Besides that, you’ll have wonderful opportunities to…
2. Build a list
It’s crucial that you build a list in order to become a reputable affiliate. Without a list, your results will be sporadic and elusive at best.
You should have a pop up or a ‘scroll mat’ styled opt in page on your blog. By giving away a freebie, you’ll encourage more people to sign up to your list. Even your videos on YouTube should have links in the description pointing to your landing page.
Use the high traffic social media properties to siphon traffic to your landing page and build your list. Always remember that you should not build your house on rented land.
While social media is great for traffic, you don’t own it. So, by getting people on your list, you’ll ensure that you have an audience even if your YouTube channel or Facebook group gets shut down.
3. Email more than once
Once you have a list, you’ll need to email them promoting the offer. Email marketing is like walking a tightrope. If you email too often (several times a day), you’ll appear needy and/or annoying.
If all you ever do is sell, but provide no value, you’ll lose subscribers and your list will have a high churn rate. So, you must provide more value than you sell.
And when you do sell, mail at least twice or three times for a product. Some people need to be told more than once before they’ll buy a product. Sounds strange, but that’s human nature.
Exercise common sense when sending emails and don’t let greed or overenthusiasm to win a JV contest cloud your better judgement.
4. Pre-sell the product
The sales page for the product is supposed to sell it. Your job is to pre-sell it. You’ll do that by telling your audience how the product helped you (if you used it) and/or how it will help them.
Highlight the benefits and add one or two disadvantages so that your review seems fair. While you should recommend the product in a favorable light, you shouldn’t hype it up to high heaven. Just like salt, use praise sparingly.
5. Use Facebook groups
Facebook groups are an excellent way to drive traffic to the offer you’re promoting. You can either create your own, or join a few popular ones related to your niche. Some groups allow for affiliate promotions now and then.
Be engaged in the group and when you’re promoting an offer, the same rules of pre-selling apply.
6. Create a relevant bonus
Most of the products in WarriorPlus are in the online marketing niche. These days, vendors put together bonuses to tempt buyers to buy through their links.
Creating a relevant bonus that’s relevant to the product you’re promoting will help to boost your sales and conversions. That said, do not pile on a bunch of old resell rights products from 20 years ago and give it an imputed real-world value of $84,872.34.
Most buyers are savvy these days and will know a rubbish bonus when they see one. Put in some effort to create a unique bonus… and you’ll increase your affiliate sales.
7. Study the stats
Study the stats on WarriorPlus. The conversion stats of the product will tell you if it’s selling well. Trying to promote a product that converts poorly is pointless. You can’t turn a donkey into a racehorse.
Your time will be better spent focusing on winning products and promoting them effectively to get more sales.
8. Do a review video
A highly effective method of getting sales is to do a video review of the product. A sneak peek at the modules inside the training or a demo of how the software works will help the potential buyer understand what they’re getting.
In a way, your review video is like an exciting trailer for an upcoming blockbuster movie. You’re whetting their appetite for the product and they’ll be much more likely to buy it through you.
By showing your face on video, you’ll also seem more credible and trustworthy. The human touch goes a long way.
9. Establish a good reputation
In this business, reputation is everything. By only promoting first-rate products and being honest, you’ll develop a reputation as someone one can trust.
You’ve not sold your soul for a dollar… and people can sense this. Once your audience trusts you, they’ll be much more likely to buy what you recommend.
You can’t buy a good reputation. You can only earn it – but once you do, it will reap dividends for you many times over.
10. Become a vendor
Here’s a tip not often mentioned – one of the best ways to increase affiliate sales, is to be a vendor.
When you’re a product vendor, not only will you build credibility, but you’ll also build a list of buyers (of your products).
Any marketer worth his salt will tell you that it’s easier to sell to people who have already bought from you.
So, promoting affiliate products to your list of buyers will get you far better results than emailing a list of people who merely subscribed to your list just to get a free product.
A simple equation to remember: Sell more products = more buyers = more affiliate sales (when you promote offers)
These 10 tips are highly effective when applied consistently and assiduously.
Focus on executing them and you’ll see your affiliate sales increase tremendously. Success will be inevitable.
