    I want to add affiliate products / recommendations to my newsletter. How do I do that the right way? Or is it OK to just add them away (1 product each email) . No problem with that?

    Make sure you don't offer too many products in one email.

    Subscribers are fast to realize when you are only selling them. Try to keep 1(offer) for each 5 good valuable content . This way your readers won't mind receiving offerts from you and will still like you.

    Thanks! I'm thinking of offering them only 1 each email. Would adding 1 on EVERY email be too much?

    It would be a direct promotion. Looks like this:

    The email would be titled with my latest blog post. The email contains the snippet of the blog post I just published and then on the side would be the image of the product and a caption that is hard-selling the product. Of course , the product would have to be related with the blog post I am e-mailing them about.

    You'll also want to make sure the offer you're sending to accepts email traffic and you'll want to decided about sending straight to the offer or to a landing page. No matter what you'll want a redirect for your links so you're not putting the affiliate link URLs in the email.

    Yep, this affiliate product has a different link for e-mail marketing. Meaning it will direct to THEIR landing page. Would that be wrong? (bec. u said not to put affiliate link URL in the e-mail)

    I suggest you A/B test your audience.
    Since you will be doing a different offert every email, it might work on every email too but the best way to find out is to test it.

    Its always smart to have the actual URL embeded in the email be like yourdomain.com/redirect.php or something, just because the spam filters already have seen emails with URLs to affiliateoffer.com/123abc - so even if you have a kick ass email sent to a really qualified audience you may get dinged for using for linking to the same domain as some jerk who banged some list
