Reviews are said to be the most important component of affiliate marketing.
There are some subtle and not-so-subtle reasons for that.
Most affiliate marketers just don’t have the hard sell personality. They don’t enjoy manipulating and pushing people into buying. They actually enjoy finding products people rave about. And all of us love a good paycheck – one that allows us to comfortably live the lifestyle we’ve chosen, taking care of people we love.
Writing reviews is a perfect way to:
- Recommend products you’ve tried that really work
- Show people how to solve a problem
- Make a connection, and enjoy a relationship with your readers
In fact, affiliate review blogging embodies this softer sell, service-based method of selling – as well as helping you comfortably maintain your integrity and ethics.
