Super Affiliates Build Trusting Relationships
Relationships go a long way. Because people buy from who they trust. Many of these methods listed here are designed to build trust; from going the extra mile, to buying the product yourself so you can really tell people more about it, to writing a “tell it like it is” review.
Ever bought something and wanted support only to have no one responded to your Help Desk tickets? Maybe you were only given a long distance number that rang busy all the time, or not at all (scary!) Perhaps the only phone number had voicemail and buttons to keep choosing, leading you nowhere except around an unending loop of automated voices looping you further into menus of useless choices with no human or other help at all. That is no way to build trusting relationships.
Just because you are just the affiliate and not part of “the” support team of the affiliate products you sell, you’ve persuaded the buyer to purchase some how. Maybe you did a review and said how great the product was. Either way they trusted you enough to buy it. So do try to help out a little when possible.
So be available fro the people that trust you. List your own contact information on your website and in your email and autoresponder messages. Offer a way to call, email and write in for help. Would you buy from somebody who went this far? I know I sure would.
It is vital to get potential buyers to trust you. So always give quality content and always, always go that extra mile. The more you can get people to trust you, the more your sales will increase, and that’s a fact.
So Why Go This Far Just to Sell Something
Before I answer that let me ask you this “Which one of these scenarios would most make you want to buy?”
- Someone tells you about a great new product they have heard about. They suggest that you give it a try.
- Someone tells you about something they tried just last week. They share some details – maybe even a tiny detail or two that could have turned into a huge negative issue but was turned into a positive one instead – and how the product really works for them and how they’ve benefited from it already.
Well, of course it would in 99.9% likelihood be 2. Why? True accounts as personal recommendations, especially those that are more “real,” with emotional hype left out, are a key route to sales success.
It is a known fact People buy from who they trust so always give quality content. Go the extra mile to build the relationship. Don’t treat people like shit, treat them as you would want to be treated.
