Avoid being afraid

Fear is a motivator turning a lot of would be great Amazon Affiliates sellers away. Fear of the unknown, of rejection and of simply not doing it right all work negatively for a writer and make saying no to selling easy. Saying no instead of saying yes as an Amazon product seller as an affiliate for lots of folks means missing out on a great way to take home wonderful profits. Don’t let this be you. Writing the correct Hub to successfully sell these products takes a little ingenuity, along with the right information and a great writer.

How to get the job done

These are the best ways to see Amazon Affiliate products selling using a Hub to make it happen;

a) Choose the right Amazon Product for marketing

Not only do you want to choose an Amazon item to sell, but you want to select the right one. The best ones to sell is typically one which is not extremely general, but specific enough to narrow down the amount of traffic you receive. Tie your product to great keywords or phrases found within your material. Remember, readers are seeking out these specific keywords or phrases. They have questions or need info about them. Having a piece of merchandise which also supplies them with a bonus is something which is draw interest and in many cases a sale.

Be specific

If you choose one too general you will not receive a focused audience for the merchandise. In fact, many readers simply move over it without a second look. Finding an audience looking to buy is half the battle which is taken care of by creating content tied to a specific Amazon product.

The capsule designed by Hubpages for this specific purpose makes it simple. Enter keywords or phrases and review the results. If the outcome is not to your liking, re-enter with some tweaking and try again. Repeat the process until you find something you like.

Merchandise price is a factor

The price of the item will affect the merchandise chosen. If the material is geared toward high end material, match the price toward the top of the ladder. The reverse is also true for less expensive material. Remember keywords are connected or linked to the retail products.

In order to make money with your affiliate promotions you want your pages in the top five spots for any query. Whether the query result is with a major search engine or even with the HubPages website, both are ideal for increased income.

b) Create content specifically related to selling Amazon products

Believe it or not real earnings for this endeavor aren’t seen with adding a few Amazon capsules to informational hubs. You can retail products occasionally for informational hubs. However, in order to reap great rewards and benefits you need to create content specifically related to selling your Amazon products.

c) Amazon affiliate hubs for selling are in a variety of formats-choose the right format for the right product

These particular types of Hubs for selling are created in more than one format. This works great for some newbies with a fear of writing affiliate hubs. Check out some ideas for writing Amazon affiliate articles rarely considered as promotional, but actually are;

1. Create the best of hub. This is material where you list the best of products. For an example, the best tablets on the market today. Best nursery paint on the retail listings today. How about the greatest landscaping ideas? These are easy to organize and craft.

2. Top lists. Top lists are extremely popular in a lot of places not simply hubs. Countless newbies to writing affiliate marketing sales hubs find top lists work well. These typically have a counting system to the madness.

The top ten of something is better than the top five. However, if you can only develop 5 or 8 of an item, work with it. For an example, you can create the Top ten baby strollers for 2012 or top ten women’s boots for this winter, etc.

3. Product comparisons. One Amazon product compared to another of the same product which is not an Amazon product is the beginning. Add more info such as why Amazon comes out on top or reviews which mention Amazon as the winner compared with another item.

4. Product reviews-product reviews are excellent material if written correctly. Include the advantages and disadvantages and why this is the top product overall. Product reviews are one of the most widely used promotions for affiliate merchandise.

These are the different formats of promotional affiliate sale hubs to select from that work well for any product ready to be sold. Choose a genre you feel comfortable writing with and the right format for the product you are hoping to market.

d) select a specific niche to focus on

Are you interested in selling technology products? How about laptops? Do you have an interest in cars? Find a niche that works for you. When selecting a niche choose something where you have knowledge or expertise which makes it easy to produce lots of content. Although some research needs to be done in lots of cases, you still have a lot of inbred useful knowledge to help in creating fast and easy affiliate content to promote items.

e) Research Amazon products available for sale before developing content

This is certainly a case of putting the cart before the horse. Though, in many cases it works. Research Amazon merchandise which are available for sale. Become familiar with what Amazon is offering for retail. Find items which interest you and learn what you can about these. Become familiar enough to sell these with expertise and ease.

After you have selected a niche this makes finding products that you like or notice easy. Know about what you are selling in order to create trusted content to satisfy clients and complete sales.

f) Sell a combination of different priced products within the same category

Sell a combination of different priced items within the same category which makes multiple sales easier. Additionally, create content easier and more of it faster by keeping items in the same category.

A wonderful combination which works well is choosing to display products high volume yet inexpensive along with other products which are fairly expensive. This is an excellent tactic to selling your affiliate products within the same category. Surprisingly lots of sellers discover higher priced items are sold at a rate of one to every five inexpensive items.

Some sellers mistakenly believe selling a lot of inexpensive products will generate a lot of online income. However, this is not typically the case. The right approach to selling your affiliate products is combining inexpensive with expensive Amazon products. Try this course of action and see promising results in nearly every circumstance.

g) Use back links within a specific niche for selling products

This is a tactic used for non-Amazon affiliate selling and works well with retailing as well. Back links are a great resource for peddling your merchandise. Write a volume of articles surrounding similar products and link them together through anchor text or back links.

For an example, if your niche is baby nursery products develop articles around strollers, beds, highchairs and car seats. Link all of the articles together through back links. The more content created within one niche the better for connecting and marketing your merchandise. Focus on one particular area of expertise to achieve the best results.

If you are fortunate enough to have blogs or other sources of material which are associated with the same type of merchandise or material, link these as well. Back links from other sources of material with higher page ranks will bring your Hubs up in search engines and increase readers.

h) Make your articles or hubs at least 800 words and write as an expert

A great article word length for a sales page is approximately 700-800 words. Search engines a driven to the longer articles. Of course creating a shorter page of product information is capable of saying the same thing. However, the longer pages do better with search engine queries and affiliate sales. The ideal page will even go as far as more than 1200 words. More readers or a larger audience is always a good thing. Not only for affiliate promotion and marketing, but also for passive income depending on page views.

Create content with the supposition you are an expert or authority on the subject matter or in the field. Stay focused on the task and the product info you are writing. Sharing or educating with authority will build trust between the seller and the client or customer. This trust is ideal in closing the deal on sales.

i) Don’t forget a thesaurus for synonyms to help craft better content

Although you have identified keywords and phrases, don’t forget to use synonyms. These are words with the same meaning as your keywords and phrases and are able to be used throughout your text with ease. This is what aids in getting the content or text built up to the 800 to 1200 word range discussing details, facts, particulars and specifics surrounding an item. A great example would be if you use text like “ideal” your thesaurus will help you to implement words like model, perfect, ultimate, etc.

j) Make your product visibly attractive with the right images or pictures

Many affiliates make the mistake of not making the product appealing visually. Content is king. However, visual displays are capable of making or breaking a sale. Build the product layout with pics or images highly visible and attractive to the eye for customers/readers.

There are tons of sources of pictures which are free to use, like Wikipedia or sites where membership is worth a small financial investment. Writers within the same niche are capable of using some of the same pics more than a couple of times.

k) What to choose? Performance structure versus classic payment for your reimbursement

How much you make selling Amazon products can make a difference with the type of payment structure you select. Sellers that choose the classic payment structure are able to make money. However, the performance payment structure makes more money in the long run.

The performance payment structure generates more income with more products sold. Classic payment structure pays you same amount no matter how many items are sold. If you believe you will sell a large amount of a product the performance payment structure nets more money than the classic payment structure. Newbies to the affiliate program generally stick with the classic payment structure until gaining more experience.

l) Create a blog or website for your Amazon products

Bloggers for affiliate marketing have been around for a while. Consider creating a blog for your products and link pages from Hubpages and other writing sites to the blog. Additionally, write content for it and link to your Hubpages or other affiliate articles located around the web.

m) Content is king

Remember content is king and never forget it. Although the search engines are focused on the longer articles they still love the shorter ones with excellent original content and this always markets any item well. Although the search engines get the customer to your material you have to make the sale. Keep the work where it should be, high on the list of things to accomplish with each article or Hub.

In conclusion

These are the best ways to sell Amazon affiliate products at Hubpages. Although this tutorial was developed strictly for Hubpages there are a number of tools that can be used in nearly any platform outside of the Hub. Good luck future salesperson! Although using these tips will certainly make luck only a small part of it. The experience and education from creating great material and selling items is the larger part.
