What will be your top affiliate product? That question assumes that you have decided to get involved in one of the best part-time opportunities on the planet–Affiliate Marketing. We even talked in an earlier post about ”Unemployment: A Great Opportunity.” We’ll talk here today a little about how to find the right affiliate product to promote.
Affiliate marketing goes two ways: you become an affiliate of a product owner, and the owner is your affiliate too. You are affiliated with each other.
Here are 5 tips for picking the best affiliate product for you.
1. Personal Interest
Promoting a product in which you are personally interested will show forth your passion for the product. That passion then will become contagious. If you have no interest whatsoever in what you are promoting, that surely will show through too. So, begin by promoting products that discuss topics in which you are highly interested.
2. Affiliate Resources
Some affiliates will provide you with great resources like banner ads, pre-written emails, pre-written articles that you can use as guides for developing your own articles. Some may even provide you with some type of webpage template. While it is not absolutely necessary for the owner of a good product to provide you with such resources, they can be valuable timesavers for you if they are included.
3. Affiliate Sales and Payment System
You do want to make sure that you will get paid for your efforts. Check out what system your affiliate product owner uses to track sales. Also check out how ofen you will be paid, and what percentage of the sale you will receive.
4. Product Quality
You do want to have a quality product. The best option is to purchase the product yourself, and become thoroughly familiar with it. However, remember that in a retail store, you wil come across sales clerks that do not own many of the products that store has for sale. You can do something similar. Check the web for comments on the product. If you are comfortable with this being a product you would like to have, then you will be able to promote that quality product. After a product generates several sales for you, ask the owner for a free copy, or simply purchase it yourself. You can find many quality products to promote based on dependable brand names and testimonials in websites and forums.
5. Recurring Income Opportunities
Many affiliates will give you a good commission for a one-time sale of the product. However, there are also opportunities for you to promote membership sites that provide great value to your customers and provide you with ongoing commissions for as long as those you help stay members of the program.
So, those are 5 great tips for choosing the best affiliate products for you to promote. Which one will become your top affiliate product? Only you can answer that question.
