Hi Linconian. Welcome to affilorama.
Many vendors have an affiliate resource area with banner ads and copy that you are allowed to use, however, using your own original copy will help. You should focus on the customer, and writing articles to help them, and let your advertisements be an addition to your site, rather than the whole purpose behind it.
It has been tried and tested many times. the more value you give someone up front, the more they will trust your recommendations on a product.
One of the things that Mark teaches through his programs is to build up a site with 20-30 articles targeted to helping people in your niche. then, place an advertisement on each of those pages for a product related to that problem.
I don't recommend advertising more than one product on a given page. If you give people too many choices, they will generally not make any. limit the choice, and tell them where they should go by advertising one product that best fits what that page is about.
Your Focus Determines Your Reality
