Give your customers a reason to order products from you again. Keep in mind that there are a lot of other affiliate marketing agents who are selling the exact same products at the same price; you need to stay in touch with your customers so they go through you to get more products. When someone orders a product from you, you should get their email address and send them a confirmation email to thank them for their order. Ask them if they would like to subscribe to your newsletter or connect with you on social networks. Let them know you will be sharing quality content to encourage them to stay in touch with you.
If you can, offer discounts to your customers. Some affiliate marketing programs will offer discounts on some of their products for a limited time, and you should take advantage of this to draw attention to one of the products you are selling and perhaps get some new customers. If your program does not offer any interesting discounts, be creative and create your own rewards program. Spend a part of your profit on gift cards or products and reward your best customers or organize a contest open to all your customers. As your sales and your customer base increase, keep offering discounts more often and giving out better prizes.
Create an online community just for your customers. This will give you a chance to learn more about your target audience, stay in touch with them and allow them to get to know you. You could create groups on social networks or launch your own message board. Encourage your customers to interact with each other and talk about things related to your products. Do your best to moderate the discussions and make sure everyone is comfortable about expressing their opinion. If you manage to create a dynamic online community, some people will visit your message board or your group on a daily basis and read your latest content.
You need to cater to your existing customers by offering more products they are interested in. Besides, adding more products to your catalog will also attract new customers. When selecting your affiliate marketing program, look for a program with a large selection of quality products but do not hesitate to join more than one program so you can create a unique catalog. Always look for new and original products and organize them into collections if you can. Send shopping suggestions to your customers based on the products they have shown an interest in and organize a promotional offer if you need to draw attention to the latest products you are selling.
These tips should help you make a difference and generate more sales than most members of your program. Remember to adapt these strategies to your audience and to get some feedback.
