Why I Love Affiliate Marketing – Part 3
By Jimmy D. Brown of “Affiliate Payraise”
Some people have the ability to persuade others and talk them into just about anything. Especially when it comes to influencing their buying decisions. They know how to
push the right hot buttons, say things the right way and generally get consumers into an emotional frenzy to the point they are ready to click an order button.
There are two key words in that paragraph that really need to stand out in your mind: “some people”.
Not everyone has this ability. In fact, only a few do.
That brings me to the third reason why I love affiliate
** You don’t need to write a world class salesletter**
Have you ever tried to write a salesletter? There’s a reason why professional copywriters charge up to $10,000 (and sometimes even more) for a SINGLE salesletter. It takes a lot of experience and skill to write a top-gun salesletter, which is why most people have a hard time convincing people to buy if they do create their own products and website.
They simply don’t have the right sales letter in place to make it all work. Without good copy, it really doesn’t matter how spectacular the offer is, you’re simply not going to get many sales.
SIDEBAR: The average conversion rate of site visitors
who become buyers is reportedly less than 2%. That
means 98 out of every 100 do NOT buy. That’s why
sales are so incredibly bad for a poor site … you
*might* get 2 sales out of every 300-400 visitors.
BUT, with affiliate marketing, you don’t need to write a salesletter! You simply direct people to someone else’s high-octane salesletter for THEM to convert your leads into commissionable sales.
That’s why I love affiliate marketing.
You don’t need to write a world class salesletter.

So true. I have tried writing a salesletter and it took me a lot of time and it was hard since I have to make something that doesn’t sound “selling” and more just like talking to a friend. So i don’t really like to worry about it when it comes to promoting my affiliate product. Affiliate Marketing is great since you don’t have to do this. You just need to drive your audience or client to the Affiliate Page.
