    Video is hot and more merchants need to start offering video promos to affiliates. One affiliate program that has recently launched a whole series of viral sales videos with affiliate links embedded is <a target="_new" href="http://buildit.sitesell.com/revenue10.html">SBI</a>. Watch one of the vides below and see just how viral it is. (Can't get that durned song out of my head!) When people use the <strong>share button</strong> to pass the video along to friends your <a target="_new" href="http://buildit.sitesell.com/revenue10.html">affiliate id</a> and cookie gets passed along too. <strong>This Viral Affiliate Music Video Pre-Sells for You - Click to Watch</strong>, then read below for more details.

    <center><script type="text/javascript">
    affID = "revenue10.html";</script><script src="http://go.webvideoplayer.com/js/CJz9PKpU0gYZESTyolNk" type="text/javascript"></script></center>

    This fascinating, easy-to-use tool allows you to select any of the <strong>"<a target="_new" href="http://ilovesbi.sitesell.com/revenue10.html">I Love SBI!</a>"</strong> videos and embed them into your site. The videos have amazing quality, and they load quickly. But you know the best is coming, right? :)

    <strong>When the video is complete, your visitor is instructed to click for more info and that all important click sends them right to your cookie-grabbing affiliate URL! Click-ka-CHING!</strong>

    And that's not all... Each video includes a "<strong>Share Button</strong>" that allows your visitors to send the video to a friend. The recipient receives an e-mail along with a link to the video. And yes, AGAIN, it gets better...

    The video link in the shared video ALSO contains your affiliate id to ensure your cookie is written to that new viewer's computer. This is viral PREselling at its finest! When these videos create a buzz, your cookie continues to get passed along in the process!

    The icing on the cake is the new<strong><a target="_new" href="http://videotour.sitesell.com/revenue10.html">SBI Video Tour</a></strong>!

    While the I Love SBI! videos display passion, success, and gratitude for SBI, the Video Tour shows your audience to see exactly how Site Build It works from start to finish.
    Now, they can see the COMPLETE picture!

    Combine the Video Tour with the I Love SBI! videos and instantly create a one-two PREselling punch that will make your visitors say, <strong>"<a target="_new" href="http://buildit.sitesell.com/revenue10.html">I have GOT to get SBI</a>!."</strong>

    Note: You could also grab one of these videos from youTube and add <a target="_new" href="http://www.bubbleply.com/">Bubbleply</a> captions and links to it.

    Disclaimer: my affiliate ID is included in this article but you don't need to click it
    you can go direct to http://buildit.sitesell.com/ to get the info.

    Note: Forum admins and mods are allwed to post affiliate links in relevant articles they take the time to write -
    members are not allowed affiliate links due to previous abuse and spam issues.

    Show us any other cool video advertising merchants offer affiliates.
    (No affiliate links allowed - link direct to merchant videos please.)

    I love that idea Linda, giving affiliates viral videos and that SBI video is hilarious.

    In the future, more merchants will start to follow the trend, but these early adopters will be paving the way. Makes me wanna run out and sign up with SBI just so I can promote the video LOL...I guess I could just promote it without my affiliate link, or better yet...yours. Where do I snag the video code, or can I just copy/paste it from the forum?

    THeres a bunch of other ones Teli. That one was the 2nd one I watched and decided if just couldn't get much better - as viral videos go. Creative guy!

    I didn't even write the blog to sell SBI, I don't really push any affiliate stuff, that's not how I make my money. BUT I wanted to show a great example of video advertising for affiliate programs and figured, may as well add my links since 2,000 people a day read my blog. What the hay! :p

    Ya you can just copy the javascript from my post above from the source code if you feel like using mine, that would be cool since I turned you onto it.

    But you can also just direct link to any of the videos - there are lots more. It's the I love SBI link right under the video and all the videos are testimonials from customers that are raving fans. There are probably lots of other good ones What better way to pre-sell.

    That page has them just pulling direct from youTube but if you were an affiliate you can find the video you want in the affiliate portal and it gives you the link to use to embed your link and set up the player on your site. That's the one I'm using in the video above so everyone can see how it works with the Share Button and all.

    Hi Linda,

    Thanks for the great post! Yes you are right, not need to push on this as the video is so viral and will help you to sell itself. Our job is just post it on our blogs/websites/forum.

    That's all what we need to do..

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Linda

    Thanks for that post. The video was very entertaining and I hope these ads work out well for them.
