Also, it really help to have some type of feedback that people can look at so they can be assured that you are professional. Include the reasons you created the product or are promoting it. Really show your audience that you can relate to them.
When creating information for that page, you should use bullet points and have at least 7 to 10 of them per sales page. In these bulletpoints include the features and benefits of the products and an in depth explanation of how it works and can benefit them.

Finally, set up a friendly order area. You want the make the customer feel comformtable and confident about buying your product or service.
4.) Utilize Autoresponders to Build Relationships With Downline and Extend Free Offers and Membership Opportunities
As I mentioned earlier, staying in contact with your list and keeping them updated with new offers and information in a key component of your business. Writing a quick email to your list every week is a good way to keep your list updated and send them offers from your affiliate links. Writing a monthly newsletter is also a good way to attract an audience because it shows your committment to your business that tells your client that you are committed to their well-being.
Autoresponders make it easier to stay in contact with your list, especially as it continues to grow. You can write emails and store them in your account and set them up to be distributed automatically after a sale for example or other specific event you have set up.
Use your list to promote your affiliate products and articles that you have written. Sending your list and email letting them know about your new article is a great way to get traffic and converting sales. Linking emails to Facebook and other social media sites can get you like and follows on Facebook and Twitter and increase your social media prescence.
