The best type of email to promote an affiliate product

5 replies
What type of email promotions are you most likely to buy from? Or, which do you think work the best?

1) A story-based email that links to a product in a casual way.

2) An email telling you: "This is the product, this is what it does, if you buy it through my link you'll get these bonuses."

3) An email pointing to a review of the product, that has some bonuses attached.

4) An email pointing to a video review of the product, that has some bonuses attached.

5) Something else?

And WHY? :-)

Thanks in advance!

    Well, for me it would be a mix of options 1 and 4.

    In other words, I have personally bought stuff from a story-based email that links to a video review of the product (and also includes some expansion of the story), that has some bonuses attached.

    People get bored quickly and forget quickly. You need a mix of types of email but you need branding so there is some memory of you as the sender.

    I will go for number 3. Since it will reveal virtually all.
