Can You Do Affiliate Marketing Without Showing Your Face?
Everybody wants to make money but not all of us want to be in front of a camera so can you do affiliate marketing without showing your face?
I will tell you the truth.
I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for some time now and the internet has changed over the years.
Mainly, the search engines and the role of social media.
If you go on youtube or social media platforms like facebook, instagram etc, you will find people with their faces a decimeter from the camera talking about themselves and surprisingly, they have 10s of thousands of followers!
People actually watch them and listen!
And because of their volumes of visitors to their profiles, they manage to make lots of money and it is often via affiliate marketing .
This has led a lot of people to the conclusion that you have to be in front of a camera to make money online with affiliate marketing.
People also seem to be under the impression that it is necessary to reveal your face to get visitors to trust you and buy through your recommendation.
Is it really so?
Is it necessary to reveal your face to get customers trust for Affiliate marketing?
The answer is NO.
You do not have to become a public figure to make money selling affiliate products.

Back in the day when I started with affiliate marketing (in 2009), Google’s search engines were not anywhere near as smart as they are today.
Google can tell if your site’s content is any good because it knows how people behave when they see your site’s content.
If they stick around and read, and even click on other pages on your blog to see more of what you’ve written, it sends google signals that your content is relevant and answers questions searchers came for.
But back in the day, you we could create content to rank on google for keywords that buyers would type in, and we could make the content garbage.
If I made a crappy post about a clickbank product for example.
A visitor came to find out more about the product that they feel interested in.
As soon as they saw my crappy post they would leave the site.
A lot of them would leave through my affiliate link (that I placed within the first 100 words of text) and end up buying the product they are searching for information about.
I never had any photos or videos of myself.
It was just product reviews and it worked fine.
That doesn’t really work anymore, but the point is that you don’t need to show yourself or even write good articles to make money as an affiliate.
All you really have to do is to send visitors to the sales page.
Every time they buy, you get paid.
And you don’t have to worry much about gaining the trust of customers.
That is the product vendors concerne so all you need to focus on is finding a product that is trustworthy and referring people to it.
That is the beauty of affiliate marketing.
We don’t have to do anything, all we do is send traffic to a sales page.
The vendor deals with everything.
You can probably increase conversion rate (especially in some niches), if you present yourself and show a face (you can even use a stock photo of someone else if you want to).
You do not have to do it though, you can remain anonymous and earn a good living online.
Here are 4 ways how to do affiliate marketing without showing your face
If you do email marketing and build an email list to send offers via email, you don’t need to show yourself on your opt-in page or in any of your emails (most people don’t), and email marketing is one of the most profitable ways to make money online.
If you do PPC (pay per click) and send visitors directly to a sales page via an affiliate link you don’t show anything but your affiliate link and people do that and make money.
You can even start a youtube channel and create videos with software where you don’t have to speak or show your face and you can make good videos that way and get sales via youtube so you can do a lot of stuff anonymously.
