    Hi

    I'm looking into becoming an affiliate through Clickbank. My niche of choice is health products. I am working on a blog, where I will post valuable content like articles and "how-tos". How can I promote my affiliate stuff without making it look like a sales page? In other words: how can i presell the product through my articles?

    I've heard that many affiliates make the mistake of selling the affiliate product from their site, whenthey should presell instead.

    Any idea?

    Thank you for your time. :)

    Stop trying to trick people into buying.

    Identify your traffic and give them exactly what they want.

    If the answer to their solution is a clickbank product then give them it.


    So for example your page could be definled like this....

    "Hey, here is some really good information about your problem and also, if you want to solve it really quickly then use this"

    Don't be scared, just give users exactly what they're looking for and you can't go wrong.

    Always worth putting in a small negative about the product/ebook and then summarising with something like "but in my opinion it is still by far the best product on {insert your topic)"
