1. Create a pre-sales video
A pre-sales video is a great way to get potential customers excited about the product you are offering.
Make sure to watermark your video with a link to the offer you are promoting.
Even if you don't have a camera you can create a video with a screen capture program like Jing or Camtasia.
2. Offer a bonus that complements the product
If you are promoting an abs product like 60 Day 6 Pack you might want to create a PDF bonus with recipes for getting lean.
Focus on adding as much value as possible. If writing is not your strength you could create a collection of some of the best links to free abs resources on the net - anything you can create that you can offer as a bonus can help you make more sales.
3. Explain how to use the product
One of the main drawbacks to buying a new product, and a major reason for refunds, is the fear of and inability to understand how to use a product to its full potential.
By explaining how to use a product you help potential customers overcome the hesitation that they might not know how to use the product they are purchasing.
A video tutorial is one way to offer training for a product; another bonus creation strategy is to develop a cheat sheet summarizing the important points of the information product you are promoting.
4. Use Social Media to spice up your offer
By installing social sharing features into the page that your affiliate offer is being published on there is a good chance that some people will use these social sharing plug-ins and share your offer with their friends, which could lead to more sales for you.

You could create a valuable free report containing affiliate links and share it with your friends and followers on social media. If your report is very valuable it could go viral and lead to many new leads and sales for you.
5. Do a Webinar with the product creator
Webinars are a great way to establish a live connection with your prospects. If you can create a strong connection and offer valuable information for free you greatly increase your chance of making a sale.
The formula for Webinar success is not to simply pitch your product, but instead to deliver massive value, and then ask for the sale. Present the “why” in the webinar and then provide the “how” with the product you offer.
Make sure to integrate scarcity into your offer, by making your offer available to a limited amount of people, or for a limited time only.
