I’ve been pondering and, as I have a place to drop the question, I thought I would and see if I can get some feedback.
I’d like to see what I can do to help market and get more interest in the Entertainment Earth Affiliate Program. But I also want to avoid “selling” the program or using my blog and Twitter as places where I advertise for it.
Still, the blog and Twitter are both tools I use for the program and I want to make sure I’m utilize both of them as a way to make people aware of the program and offer hints for my current affiliates.
While I’ve spent a good half of my life in sales in one form or another, I’ve always hated being “sold to” or feeling like I’m “pitching” people. As I see it, I’d much rather figure out what people would find interesting about the program and then have it be something they actually feel they can get use and benefit from.
Which is where I need feedback.
In the end, I want to get people interested in the Entertainment Earth Affiliate Program and, if they feel it’s a benefit, become an affiliate.
Do I “remind” people about it maybe once a week? Do I just continue on as I have – which is just my doing my business and letting people find it on their own? What works? What doesn’t and what would you suggest?
Oh, for the record, I know I could read all the “How to…” posts out there and get all sorts of great “ideas”. But I prefer honest feedback, because those guys don’t have to read me. Know what I mean? ;-)
