When it comes to promoting affiliate offers it really doesn’t matter what you are interested in. What matters is the interest of your audience.I found the perfect quote to speak to this by a very wise woman…
“If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.” — Katharine Hepburn
The only way to know if your audience will resonate with a certain type of product is to know your audience. One way to know your audience is to keep track of the types of affiliate offers that they’re purchasing. Another way to know your audience is to ask them in a poll, there are several free softwares that are available.
One that I have used is Survey Monkey, it’s very easy to use and it’s free so what else can you ask for. Another way to find out what your audience is looking to purchase or whether or not a product will resonate with your audience is to just ask…
Just send out a couple of broadcast emails asking them what types of topics they want to learn about.
The email should be short and to the point…
Something like this…
Subject: Just A Quick Question For Ya…
I’m interested in what topics you’re trying to learn about so I can be more of a help to you. Please let me know with a reply either 1, 2, 3 or 4.
The email is just an example, if you think other topics would resonate better use your own.
This type of email serves 2 purposes, 1 is to get to know your audience and 2 for them to get used to replying back to you and engaging with you. This can be used as a Facebook post if you have an engaged following on Facebook also. You can also make a video for your Youtube audience, just ask them to leave a comment below the video and collect the data there.
Once you collect all the data from all your social media platforms and your email list start by sending them free reports. This will get them used to clicking and downloading from you. Then you know that you have their trust. Make sure you deserve their trust so only send great offers to them on the subjects they said they want to learn about.
If you treat your audience well, and take care of their needs, they will take care of you and continue to buy from you.
