These days there isn’t a shortage of popular products to promote, at least if you are promoting them in the main niches like finance, dating, golf, forex or automotive. In order to become successful in this game you need to choose products that are in high demand and that convert well. If you can accomplish this you are already half way home. Your next obstacle is to design a sophisticated enough promotional strategy around this product so get you the necessary traffic that will allow you to earn a consistent income with this product. Since Affiliate Programs are free, or 99 percent of them anyway you don’t have to refinance your house in order to get involved.
Most affiliate managers these days are pretty smart and realize that affiliates won’t do too well unless they are provided with some basic tools. Most offer free banners, text ads and solo emails you can use to promote their stuff. However a good affiliate will end up using these and create their own content promoting their offers. Clickbank is a popular place affiliates aggregate to and find products to sell. One tip when searching for clickbank products is to consider promoting CB products with the highest gravity. Gravity is in laymens terms just a ballpark figure for how popular a product is, the higher the gravity the more you should consider promoting a product. I’ve seen clickbank products with up to 600 gravity.
As far as percentages, digital ebooks offer higher percentages most of the time than physical products. Clickbank now allows for the sale of physical products, so you can find products on clickbank that offer 50-75% commissions for each sale you make. In fact this is more the rule than the exception these days. Another thing you can do is become a free affiliate for amazon. They only pay 6% but sales are much easier to make with them since you are riding on their big name, and they are so trusted that it’s easy to convert products with them. Try looking around amazon and finding high ticket products to sell.
Have you ever considered selling medical supplies or fitness equipment? These types of products sell for thousands of dollars, even a six percent commission on a product that costs the customer a grand will give you a $60.00 commission. If you could make just 2 sales per day like this you would be golden. Also consider joining two tier programs that have been around for years and have a good track record. One is Ken Evoy’s Site Sell. I’d recommend promoting the 2nd tier part of it and get an army of affiliates selling for you. This way you leverage the efforts of a battallion of hungry affiliates. When promoting affiliate programs you are not short of options, it’s big business these days.
