customer for one product, another product can then be
advertised and sold to the same customer,

the merchant or affiliate, so there is already
a level of trust between them. Because of this trust, selling
the back end product may actually be easier than the
initial sale.

sales for both online businesses and land bound
companies. If the customer is happy with the initial
product that was purchased, he'll logically assume
that the online company is offering quality products
and will come back again.

The standard technique for back end selling is to
show the customer other products that cater to other needs that the customer
may have. When the customer becomes aware of
the second or back end products, he will look into
it and may make a purchase.

known and proven to be very powerful source of additional income for many companies. It
has help many online companies
flourish and expand. And if used correctly,
it can also work very well with affiliate marketing.

While affiliate marketing will attract new customers
and lead to a initial sale, the back end
selling will build loyalty among the buyers. In other words, back end selling an important part of building a winning formula in affiliate marketing.
