Use Affiliate Products for Content to Mail Your Community

Occasionally I experience writer’s block when it comes to providing something of value to you. It isn’t that I have nothing to say. It’s a matter of wanting to deliver a solution to a problem which you might actually have. This is especially true when I have no product to promote that can fit your needs. So this is a perfect reason to look for an affiliate product to promote.

For instance, I assume that you, like other small businesses and entrepreneurs who believe in relationship marketing, are trying to develop relationships with your potential customers and prospects. To do that, you are using social media. Moreover, you want to engage with readers. To do so means that they have to read and relate to what you post.

Neil Patel of QuickSprout and the Content Marketing Institute, shared some really interesting facts about the effectiveness of images in “The Ultimate Guide to Creating Visually Appealing Content”:

  • “Content with relevant images gets 94% more views than content without.
  • 94% equates to almost double the views and the boost is noticed across all topics and categories.
  • “Tweets with images on Buffer receive 150% more retweets.”

What do these powerful statistics proving the power of images have to do with using affiliate products to mail to your community? They are totally relevant if you want to add produce related images to your blog posts and social media posts. You can use them just to add appropriate images or maybe to create memes or slideshows.

There are 100 images, some of which she shows in a video on her sales page, that are royalty free, unlimited use – including commercial use. You can send out to your community about these images or get them for your own use.

Be aware that not all “public domain” pictures are free to use for commercial purposes. If you make an affiliate commission or royalty for anything related to the site on which you post your article with an image, that use is considered commercial, even though the article in which it appears isn’t selling anything. To be perfectly clear about this, check with an intellectual property rights attorney. Or to avoid that expense and hassle, just buy Sheila’s bundle of 100 pictures: ALL – ROYALTY FREE • EXTENDED LICENSE • UNLIMITED USE, presently available for only $17.

If you use images of fruits and vegetables in your articles, emails, physical mailings, social media posts or even on physical things like mugs, hats and shirts, take advantage of this low priced package. Remember, content with relevant images gets 94% more views. And the license saves you a potentially huge fine for copyright infringement.

As of this writing, this bundle of 100 photos of fruits and vegetables is only $17, a small price to pay for “All – Royalty Free • Extended License • Unlimited Use” images when the penalty for copyright infringement is astronomical. Even if copyright isn’t an issue to you, if you need produce pictures, the value of the time save searching for public domain commercial use photos is far less than this small payment.



About the Author

I have a strong love for small businesses, especially brick and mortar companies. After an 18-year career in sales and marketing, I started my own service company, which I grew in both sales and profits for the first five years. In my sixth year, the bottom dropped out of the printer market such that it made more sense to sell my assets and return to Southern California. There I went to work for an international small business consulting company. I spent over three years on the road with them helping small businesses to become more profitable and better managed. I then started my own company specializing in sales and marketing consulting, coaching and training. My emphasis is on heart-centered, relationship selling that empowers prospects to make their own choices.
