Making consistent sales with your Affiliate Blog posts

This will require that you test out the service or product for yourself before recommending it. For example, I am a big breakfast fan! I love to eat at great places (I am a foodie at heart). A friend of mine recommended a restaurant to me the other day, but she had never eaten there before. She mentioned that she drove by it every morning and it was always packed full of clients. So my boyfriend and I decided to give it a try. You better believe it, we hated it. The service was slow, the tables were dirty and the food was extremely salty. Needless to say, I am not recommending it and I will never go back to it. 

It was a waste of $30.00 and I could have made better breakfast at home. I would have been okay with some cereal that morning. If you want to make good on your word, ensure you have tested the product in some way.

Can you imagine if your clients stop following you or stop reading your work because you sent them to one bad place? They will never trust your word again. The perfect way of ensuring trust is by writing a blog review.

Do you want to make consistent sales with your affiliate blog? Don’t confuse your readers with too many products or services. Create a blog post focusing on just one item that you really believe in. Get this post and ensure you promote the heck out of it. Consistently promote it and market it to make consistent sales with your affiliate blog post. Your post should be extremely in depth about the product. Here is what to include:

  • It should be over 1000 words (use keywords) – More words, the better. 
  • Outline the pros and cons of the particular product 
  • An honest opinion of how it has helped you 
  • Any benefits of the product that your clients might enjoy
  • Do you have concrete proof of how it has helped you? Highlight it. 

Here is an example of a post that makes me sales: How to make money in affiliate marketing within 24 hours using Pinterest

How to make consistent sales with your Affiliate Blog posts


Your readers want to believe you. You have one shot to impress a first-time reader to your blog and to turn them into a potential client. Every reader that lands on your blog should be converted into a long time client. Entice and capture your client by showing them examples and proof of your achievements from using a particular product or a service.

Why should they sign up for a product that you are recommending? Why is that product better than product B? Show proof with screenshots of your progress, how to use a product and include videos if you can. Every time I want to know something, I go to YouTube. I love visuals and step by step video tutorials. To make consistent sales with your affiliate blog concrete examples are needed. 


If you want to make consistent sales with your affiliate posts, you need to grow your email list. This is an engaged mailing list of your most loyal supporters that will read and potentially purchase what you recommend. The bigger your list, the more money you can make! 40 to 30% of your email list will actually open what you send. Out of that amount, between 2-5% will make a purchase. That is why we recommend always growing your list every chance you can. Want to learn how to grow your list? 

I use mailerlite to capture my subscribers. It’s free for the first 1000 readers and the open rate is way better than MailChimp.

Once you have a list going, start by nurturing your list. Send them useful weekly information, direct them to your blogs and then you can eventually add affiliate links to your email marketing to promote sales. This is an amazing way to keep making sales with affiliate links. They are bloggers that have over 10, 000 people on their email list. This means they can easily make over $5000 per months depending on what they are promoting.

Next step to making consistent sales with your Affiliate Blog posts is by driving consistent traffic to that particular posts. You can do this by using Pinterest. Create 3 to 4 different images for that blog post and promote the heck out of it on Pinterest and every social media platform you have. Don’t forget to share it with your email list at least twice every month. And when we say promote, we mean to make it your job to promote this post multiple times a day, multiple times per week and per month. Link it to older or newer posts if it is relevant.

    Thank you so much for sharing this, many bloggers tend to forget the basic thing that could help them earn more from affiliate marketing which is; scaling up.
    So, if you have a winner blog post that is bringing in a couple of dollers you need to optimize it so that you can earn more. But to start you will need affiliate programs that pay really well.

    Cheers, to blogging success 🙂

    Thanks for writing this! I got this bright idea about doing product reviews for our food blog several months back. Needless to say, it was horrible and I will never do them again. It wasn’t a good fit for our style of blog and readership. After reading your post, I see where we went wrong. Thanks again! 🙂
