Being someone who is always getting better at affiliate marketing I’ve been looking into presell pages and how they are different than landing pages. I’ve also been learning some ways to improve these pages and I wanted to share a few things I discovered.
A presell page for affiliate marketing is a page designed to warm someone up to a product before they are introduced to it.
Keep reading and I’ll share why a presell is a good thing, 5 different types of presell pages, how a presell page is different than a landing page, an easy way to create these pages, and 3 tips that can help you convert better.
Why a Presell in Affiliate Marketing is a Good Thing?
A Presell is good because it increases the chance of making a sale. A very good book on this topic is this one HERE.
In a nutshell, getting someone in the right state of mind can be very helpful before you make an offer. It can also work great in negotiating such as pointing to a very expensive product and then pointing to your product, which would be MUCH less money.
You can see how a presell could make a big difference! You can do something similar with affiliate offers and this can help you earn more money in the long run.
Another way to look at it would be thinking long-term or going deep into a topic (not shallow).
Going deep into a topic, usually means earning more money in “many” situations. Someone who has been driving truck for 20 years and owns his own truck will probably earn more money than someone who just started out right?
What’s “really” cool is there are TONS and TONS of ways we can go deeper as affiliate marketers meaning thinking more long-term without needing 20 years. A presell page is just 1 example and instead of just asking for a sale you’re setting it up before you ask and this requires more planning.
Another way to go deep would be creating a blog or Youtube channel because the content you create can work years in the future. A third idea for thinking long-term would be collecting emails and sending multiple offers months or years in the future.
Of course, the ultimate way to go deep is by creating your own affiliate product and having others sell it, while you earn money and build a list.
Hopefully, you can see that thinking “more” long-term about things can give you more money.
What Are the Types of Presell Pages?
- Text and then a link.
- Video and then a link.
- Text or Video and Bonuses.
- Text or Video, Bonuses, countdown timers, and exit bounces.
- Text or Video, Bonuses, countdown timers, exit bounces, and email.
There are many different options and don’t feel that everything has to be perfect before you start. On many of my blog posts, I include just an affiliate link and have gotten sales.
Still talking about the product “a little” bit more will help. The first level is just text and then a link. You can even do this inside a blog post or on social media. You can share a few reasons why you “really” like the product. Level 2 is a video of maybe you explaining what you like about the product and then the link.
The reason a video is better than text is that it’s more personal and has more of a connection. I still love blogging because I own the blog (unlike a Youtube channel) plus it’s easy to combine them.
Sometimes there is less competition on a blog than on a Youtube video and they are both different. If you want to get better at blogging and Youtube I recommend checking out a free eBook I created HERE.
Level 3 is using text or video and then including bonuses. Now, this depends on the product and if it’s an expensive product then it could be worth it.
If you’re not sure how to create a bonus I would recommend checking this out HERE. it’s a way to create an eBook insanely fast and easily. For example, you could create a 10-page eBook (very easy) and that is your bonus.
Plus, there really is a TON you can do with eBooks such as…
- Sell them.
- Give them away to Facebook, Linkedin, and Quora groups.
- Use them as lead magnets to grow an email list.
- Give them as bonuses for an upsell.
- Give them as a bonus to sell affiliate offers.
- Put affiliate links in the eBook.
- Give them away to torrent sites for traffic.
- Create an affiliate offer and put it on Clickbank or Jvzoo and have others sell it.
Level 4 is to use countdown timers and exit bounces. There are many ways to do this but an easy way would be using something like this HERE.
This website creates presell pages very fast, easily and includes bonuses, countdown timers, attention bars, and exit bounces. Plus, it includes more training on how to do presells better and it gives you bonuses.
Level 5 is to combine a landing page to collect emails and then send emails out promoting presell pages. Using emails is “VERY” powerful because some people have to look at something many times before they buy.
Plus, you can market multiple offers to 1 person. You own the email list and there is “a lot” of cool stuff you can do with it.
In, fact if you do nothing with the list and you just grow it, you can still sell it. The list is an asset and I wrote more about email marketing in this post HERE.
I know you might be thinking that email marketing can be expensive (some are). I recommend using a free service like this one HERE, to start and it even includes a landing page.
You probably have a million questions on email marketing such as…
- What should be the title?
- What should be in the body of the email?
- When to send emails?
- How often to promote affiliate offers?
I created a free eBook HERE that goes over email marketing in more detail.
How do you Write a Presell?
You can think of a presell as a personal endorsement of the product by yourself. What are some things you “really” like about the product?
Another way to improve your presell and this has to do with “all” your marketing is talking to the reader directly. Instead of talking to many people in your writing or video just talk to the reader directly.
A third way to improve your presell has to do with association. People don’t care about products they want what the product will do for them.
It’s like looking at those diamond commercials and then seeing a happy couple. The commercial is associating buying jewelry with a better romantic relationship.
What are some ways you can associate your product with the ideal outcome?
You can do a presell inside a blog post or Youtube video. Another idea is to have a page dedicated to preselling an item.
If you want to create presell pages VERY fast and easily then I would recommend checking this out HERE. This is software that is ONLY about presell pages or bridge pages.
They even give you some bonuses to give away and can include countdown timers, and exit bounces that can increase conversions. Plus, a lot more training on how to do preselling. All it takes is a few extra transactions to be worth it.
How a Presell Page is Different than a Landing Page?
A presell page or a bridge page is designed to market a product (such as an affiliate product). A landing page or squeeze page is designed to get someone on an email list.
The picture above is of a landing page and you can see at the bottom the place to put an email address. A presell page would be VERY similar except instead of asking for an email address there would be a link to an affiliate offer.
The good news is you can actually do both and that is what I would recommend.
Have all your traffic (when possible) go to a landing page to capture their email address. Then market various affiliate products using email to various bridge pages that lead someone to affiliate offers.
Of course, knowing how to do email marketing correctly is a valuable “skill.” Knowing what to put in your emails, how often to send them, and when to promote stuff are good questions.
If you want to learn more I’m giving away a free eBook about affiliate marketing that talks about this in much more detail from this link HERE.
Doing “something” even if it’s not perfect is better than nothing. I’ve heard many stories of people who don’t do anything because they are looking for the “perfect” domain name or waiting until everything is perfect before starting.
It’s better to put out something even if it’s NOT good than nothing. Just remember to “always” be improving. Waiting until something is perfect isn’t a good idea because nothing will “ever” be perfect.
If you’re not sure where to start (I might have given you too much info) I would recommend viewing a free eBook I created HERE. I go over step-by-step how to get paid NOW.
I hope this blog post gave you “at least” some ideas on what is possible with affiliate marketing. Bye for now.
