1) Collect your visitor email addresses by providing free reports.
Offer a free report to your visitor. This report should provide helpful and valuable information. This will enable you to collect your visitors email address and follow up with them. Use an autoresponder to automate this work for you.

3)Write your own endorsement or review product you're promoting.
A heartfelt honest testimonial is hands down best way to get a prospect to buy. Your prospect wants to know how this product has ben helping you. This will help them to make decision to buy.
4)Use your web site 404 (Error) page.
Even though we try to build a perfect web site, sometimes something may be missing without our being aware of it. That's why software may still have bugs even after being tested a few times. Check with your web hosting company to see if you can customise error page. In my case, I use my error page to promote Marlon's products. I put up ebook cover and ad on error page. Whenever someone is looking for a page that is missing or mistypes name, this page will help me to promote Marlon's products .
5) Fully utilize your thank you page .
After visitor opts in to your mailing list, redirect them to a thank you page where you can recommend your affiliate product. Yanik Silver is using this technique; After visitor submits their email for report, they will be redirected to thank you page. In thank you page, Yanik will recommend a few products to his prospect. However, Marlon and some other Marketers prefer to sell 1 product at one time, which they believe it is more effective and less confusing. You can test these 2 methods by using a simple java script so that thank you page will be rotated. One is with a single product recommendation and other page will be for multiple product recommendations. Test it out to see which one gives you a higher conversion rate.
