PostSubject: Affiliates: 10 Ways to Improve Credibility and Conversions   Sun 13 Apr - 1:08

Lack of consumer trust is still the biggest obstacle to online sales, and judging
by the amount of spam and scams flying about in cyberspace, surfers are right
to remain wary.

Savvy online shoppers, however, know how to determine a merchant's credibility
with onsite information and by asking pertinent questions.

Online merchants and their super affiliates anticipate their visitors' concerns and
address questions before they arise. In return, these customer-oriented salespeople
are rewarded with sales and conversion rates much higher than their counterparts
whose focus is elsewhere.

Here are 10 ways you too can increase your conversion rates by improving visitors'
trust in your sites.

HONESTY: Visitors should know exactly what to expect before they get to
your site. Dishonest advertising wastes their time and your money.
They'll leave
without buying, or plans to return.
SUPERIOR KNOWLEDGE: Affiliates with high conversion rates usually own
the products they sell. First-hand knowledge lends credibility to their personal reviews
and sets them apart from the crowd.
INVITE FEEDBACK: Testimonials from happy customers are an excellent way to
build trust in your product reviews.
SELL QUALITY: Complaints, refunds and charge-backs lower your reputation,
as well as your revenue. Sell only high-quality products.
KEEP DESIGN SIMPLE: Gratuitous animated graphics scream "Webmaster Kindergarten". Focus on your products, not fancy gimmicks.
SHOW RESPECT: Broken links, graphics and forms are frustrating. Pop-ups,
music and noise are maddening. Respect your visitors' time and space.
Make sure your site is free of errors and other annoyances.
BE AVAILABLE: Make it easy for visitors to get in touch with you. A highly visible contact link on every page is usually enough to let visitors know that you are readily available.
EXPOSE YOURSELF: It's a psychological fact that trust increases with exposure.
Stay in touch with your visitors by sending them useful information through your
mailing list.
STRETCH: Affiliates often receive emails better handled by the merchant partner.
Don't ignore those emails. Relaying the message promptly brands you as a
professional with both the customer and your partner.
GIVE TREATS: Freebies are like chocolate samples. Few folks will turn them down,
and your reputation goes up when they're good.
