I'm promoting some products that aren't too cheap, and are of exceptional quality which people are interested in.
'However', of the 3 main manufacturers of these items, none have their own affiliate program, but they use Amazon. The disappointing thing is, is that the Amazon page is rather empty and lacking of any good info related to these products.
I realize then it's my job to fill in the blanks on my site, to make up for what Amazon is missing as far as info, reviews, etc....I understand this. Yet, due to these rather specialized products and price, I still feel that visitors are going to have more of a tendency to go to the product's/manufacturer's site, where there is such a wealth of info, photos and options, and bypass Amazon, thus resulting in lost commissions.
Do any of you have any tips and advice of how I can at least 'try' to prevent them from going straight to the product's homepage and hopefully make the sale on the Amazon page instead?.......... maybe somebody has some tricks they use?
I understand that prior to clicking the link on my site, they won't know where they're going, but i'd be so bummed to have them click one more time to the manufacturer after Amazon, to get more info - maybe that part is really out of my hands eh?
I would be so grateful for any thoughts, as I really would like the commissions from these high-priced products.
Thanks for listening,
