How To Select The Right Affiliate Product
Finding a good product to sell online and to earn a passive income can be difficult, so you need to do the right research before jumping in as it is important to your success.
There are literally thousands of products to choose from and the competition amongst sellers can be fierce.
Finding a niche and product is the most difficult part of Affiliate Marketing.
The steps below may help you when choosing an Affiliate Product:
1. Find a product or program that interests you.
Avoid choosing a single affiliate product and then developing the web page to find that you need to start all over again with a totally different product.
Instead, consider creating a series of websites and products within the same niche.
Think about what interests you and is there a topic you would consider yourself to be an expert?
Choose something you like that could also be profitable as you’ll be spending a lot of time on your niche.
A good niche will have multiple products available. Give your customers some choices. If you’re selling diet products, give them several to choose from. You can link your websites together and create your own little community.
2. Check out your competitor.
There will be others trying to sell the same products as you. Research online and see how stiff the competition is.
Most affiliate programs have a metric that describes how well a product is selling. Ideally, you would want to find some products that are selling well, but have minimal competition.
3. Think about the timeframe.
Based on the level of competition, create a timeframe for success. Avoid picking something that requires more time and effort than you have.
4. Be concerned about the sales page.
Even a fantastic product is difficult to sell without a great sales page.
Though it is possible to create your own sales page, it is easier to send prospects to the one provided by the company that created the product.
Ask yourself if the page looks professional and it makes you wanting own the products too.
5. Look at the payout.
How much will you be making per sale and how many sales do you estimate that you can sell?
Products can range from $10 to $1,000 so that means commission can range from 1% to 75% or more.
6. Does the product have staying power?
Some products morph over time. For instance, Apple releases a new iPhone every year or so.
A good passive income product won’t require you to rebuild your marketing machine each year.
There are products that have been sold for many years in the exact same format.
7. Evaluate your results.
Any decent affiliate product site will allow you to evaluate your web traffic.
If you’re getting people coming to your affiliate sales page, but no one is buying, then you either need a new sales page or a different product.
It is possible that those who visited your site are looking for information, rather than looking to make a purchase.
Find a way to entice those who are coming to your site, but aren’t clicking on your links.
Choosing good products is the first step to becoming an effective Affiliate Marketer.
A good product makes it much easier to be successful.
Find a popular niche and good products. Before you know it, you’ll be making a killing in the world of affiliate marketing.
This is my story…
There are thousands of Affiliate Marketing programs out there on the internet and you need to do your research to see which path you want to follow.
I knew the digital economy existed and that it is the new way to earn an income while working from home.
I chose the Six Figures Mentors (SFM) because they are a digital education company who have been teaching people how to start their own online business from scratch and they have been doing this for over a decade.
They are focused and dedicated to help you on your journey but the success of your business does depend on you, your mindset and dedication.
I knew the digital economy is the new way to earn an income while working from home. I realised that we are now living in the digital economy, so I decided to invest in myself by learning a new skill.
Learning a new skill requires determination and commitment and I can tell you now that is the best investment I have made.
Now I can work in the comfort of my own home and I do not have to wake up to an alarm clock, get dressed and commute through the horrendous traffic to and from work. It is so flexible on my time!
I need to tell you that I did face challenges while learning a new skill. I questioned myself if I could do this, but with determination, I soldiered on and quashed my doubts on starting my own online business.
What I found that was where the biggest growth happens.
This brings me to you…… I found a free video workshop series of shared ideas on how to break this cycle of just working and start living.
What I uncovered is a whole new life, right in front of us, we could not see it.
I started an online business from scratch with no experience, scary…YES – rewarding (worth it)..100%.
And now that is my hope for you, even if you watch the video series and if you are happy with where you are, amazing… you confirm that feeling, or you might uncover a passion to start a franchise or own a traditional biz it really does not matter, as long as you are willing to do what most people are not.
I have included a form on the right hand sidebar so you can enter your name and email address, and I will send the same video series which got me started directly to your inbox or if you prefer to access the tutorials here
I have also included my personal email address here [firstname.lastname@example.org] and I want you to know that you can reach out to me with any questions you may have.
You need to figure out your why! and don’t let life pass you by. I look forward to talking to you soon.
