Make More Sales from Web Hosting Affiliate Programs

1. Only recommend the web hosts you use

Honest website marketing is the key to make more sales by selling affiliate products. Take any successful online marketer for instance you will understand that they will be only promoting the products they personally use.

Don’t promote affiliate products just because they are giving you extra income, you should look out for the trustworthy of the products. So before giving web hosting service advices to your audience, use them first. Then recommend the hosting services that you really liked most, it is better if you promote only those hosting services that you personally use.

I personally use and recommend Bluehost for any new blogger who wants a hassle free web host service for their WordPress websites.

2. Write unbiased web hosting reviews

If you want to increase your web hosting affiliate program sales, write unbiased and honest product reviews. If you convince your visitors the pitfalls and advantages of using the products you recommend, you can make more sales without selling your soul.

Hone your writing skills to create great reviews on the products you want to promote. Analyze how your competitors are promoting their products by writing reviews. You can have a better idea if you go through all the product reviews of popular bloggers who are making decent affiliate income.

I recommend you to read Smart Passive Income and Problogger.com to increase your writing skills as well as affiliate sales.

Try to give huge online reach to your web hosting programs as the more reach they get, your chances of making money from them increases. But don’t appear like a spammer who wants to just increase his affiliate income, it can only hurt your readership.

Don’t sound like “hey, I’ll earn some commission if you buy this web hosting using my affiliate link”. Instead of hard selling, try to help your readers to decide the best web hosting service for their needs.

By promoting special offers on your web hosting services, you can boost your affiliate income quickly. Most people wait for the right time to launch their websites and if they see a huge price drop in web hosting service they love, they will instantly buy.

So I suggest you to sign up for all the web hosting services you recommend on your websites so that you will be the first one to get notified if they are offering special offers or discounts on their web hosting.

If they offer special discount, make sure to become the first person to write a review or give a shout out to your visitors to increase your sales. Try to get the best promo codes from the product owners to make more people buy from you instead of your competitors.
