A frustrated affiliate sounds off…
“My blog ads usually get a large number of clicks but no sales. How can I improve this ratio? Call me a dreadful ‘right-wing capitalist’ if you like, but prefer more sales with those clicks.”
Here’s the thing:
Blog ads aren’t really a great way to sell stuff.
I use ‘em.
They do drive sales.
But it usually takes a LOT of traffic to generate a single sale.
A much better way to drive sales is to actually SELL something using an email or a blog post or a product review.
You see, your goal isn’t merely to funnel traffic from your website through an affiliate link.
It’s to become a trusted source of information.
So that when you recommend a product, your readers respond.
