The benefits of content marketing are not only the loyalty, sales, and brand awareness that are possible, but also the ability to transform people’s lives with the genuine information you’re putting out there.

The reason content marketing can achieve all these things is because people connect with presentable and quality content.
How do you become a trusted authority?
To become a trusted authority, the content you write should be solving the same problems as the brands you’re recommending do. How does this make sense, you ask? Providing free value is marketing 101 and should always be applied. When you’re an authority in your niche, giving all that knowledge to your readers will tell them that the products you’re recommending are not only valuable, but recommended by the most knowledge person in the industry. When you’re publishing helpful content regularly, your audience will come to you for the best products and services that they’re looking for and take your recommendations seriously.
When a visitor comes to your website to answer their question and see all the detail and solutions you’ve written for free, the affiliate link you provide will be a direct reflection of the trust you created for yourself. This trust will be the factor that results in them buying from the brand you recommended.
To ensure that your recommendations are as congruent with the great content you’re publishing is by being a customer and believer in everything you sell.
The next tip on how to build relationships so people will trust your recommendations is by only including the best of the best. If every article includes endless links to products that aren’t even related to your niche, just because you want the sale, people will notice. The free value that you’re providing should heavily outweigh the sales you’re trying to receive. It’ll pay off. It may seem like a losing battle at first following these methods, and it does take time to build relationships. But Google is catching on to the get rich quick versions of affiliate marketing and these methods are the ones that will last and be rewarded by Google in the end.
