Marketing with video
You can’t deny that video is powerful. People love watching videos and that’s why they’re everywhere. Keeping people’s attention is so much easier using videos. So using it in your affiliate promotions is a no-brainer!
Here are a few ideas for creating affiliate videos:
- Record your testimonial
- Do a video walk-through
- Sneak peak
Record your testimonial
It doesn’t get any easier than this. Just click record on your web cam and start talking. It does not need to be polished or pro. Seeing a real person on the other end helps your viewers make a buying decision. In truth, mistakes and mess-ups just make it more believable. You can literally just press record and talk. Use one of the other ideas if you’re feeling shy.
Do a video walk-through
This is a great way to promote something without selling it. You’re taking the role of teacher and showing how to use the product. And in the process you’re actually selling the product. If the product is useful, watching the tutorial makes them want to buy it. So pick some really helpful aspect of the product and show how to use that.
Do an ordering video
This technique is super powerful. Record yourself placing an order. There is nothing more motivating than watching someone buy something live. First, it’s social proof. People will feel more comfortable buying after seeing you do it. This also makes your viewers trust you. They are much more likely to take your advice to buy when you’ve taken it yourself. And let’s not forget about good old fashioned envy. They see you getting the satisfaction of making the purchase and that makes them want it. You can add additional juice to this one with: You’re gonna have to place your own order if you want to see the members area.
Record a preview of the members area
Here’s an easy way to show the value of the product. In this case you record a screen share of the inside of the product. You show them the entire contents of what they get. It also reduces the reservations of skeptics. It’s much easier to trust they’re getting something if they actually seen it.
