Sales has long been regarded as a numbers game because your success depends on selling small amounts to many persons or selling large amounts to a smaller number of people.
It would not be incorrect to conclude that marketing is also a numbers game, and this is especially true of Affiliate Marketing. You also need large numbers of targeted prospects to see your offers and click on your affiliate link so you can make money online. How does the Know, Like and Trust factor encourage others to click on your affiliate links?
It has often been stated that people do business with those whom they’ve come to know, like and trust. So while Affiliate Marketing is great for beginners to internet marketing, you’ll become more successful as you build relationships over time.
An effective starting point is with a blog where you provide posts and articles that offer answers to questions and solutions to concerns your readers may have. Through your posts, your readers will get to know you as your personality and authenticity are reflected in your writing style and quality.
Over time when your readers see that you’re willing to provide valuable content for free, they are more apt to click on your affiliate links and purchase products through you. This is because they now trust you that you would recommend only what you’ve personally used and got benefit from, or at the very least know the quality of previous work produced by the marketer you are an affiliate for.
How has the know, like and trust factor proven to be helpful in your online business? Please share.
