In affiliate marketing, knowing which products to promote can make you a lot of money over the internet. One of the ways of knowing which affiliate market to go for is to actually see which products people want to buy. When you know this, you are half way towards having a profitable affiliate marketing campaign. So how do you go about doing this and is it really that easy?
Well to begin with, you need to choose a market that is in a category that you have an interest in yourself. The easiest way to do this is to go to Clickbank’s Marketplace and choose a category on the left hand side that interests you. If you were to choose a category in the middle of the screen, it would be easy to choose a product to promote but if you were to take the reverse approach it would be a lot harder to get the same result.
Once you have chosen your category, you need to start looking at products because at this point you will need to build a list of relevant products to promote. It is highly recommended that you choose a product in a niche that you have some interest in or at least some knowledge of. This will make it a lot easier to write articles and previously have better success in other areas too. The best products to find are usually the ones that have the most demand but are least expensive.
If you have done a decent amount of research, you should now have a good idea of whether your chosen category is suitable to market affiliate products or not. If you can still find products in this niche then the best put together those products as the bulk of your profits will come from the 25-75% that you will make from the sale of each product. If you can try to find physical products to affiliate for, the even better as it will be 100% from the sale.
Once you have decided whether to go for a niche in click bank or not, you need to set up a landing page. There are a lot of cheap websites that you can get free domains with and then embed your affiliate links and some code to show your list of products.
I have found that the easiest way to do this is quite simple and it involves using a trick I learned when I first started using click bank. To use this method all you do is have an average domain name with some content, around $1 or $2 if you can find it. Inside this you will need to embed your affiliate link to the product page. Then you need to create a 1 page website where you will have your sales pitch and an opt-in form.
This technique is excellent because it relies on some basic html and auto responders. It is important that you do not slavishly follow the sequence they have established, but rather create your ownisation of the site. Often the site will already have the sequence established and it is just a case of completing the remainder of the website from scratch.
For instance, if you have purchased an insurance or financial product, you will already be using the pitch page created with click bank and can just mod the content to make your own. You will also be using an auto responder to capture visitors’ names and e-mail address’s and to get hoping for commissions.
In this way you can customise the site to suit your own requirements and you will have some articles, probably articles that you have written yourself, as well as any additional content required to make your site stand out from the crowd. Once you have the site all set up you can then choose a method of driving traffic to your site.
This is usually vitally important when it comes to achieving quick conversions and as you will see over time, there are a number of ways that you can do this.
The various free forms of marketing are:
This is then brought back to affiliate marketing and using a relevant domain name, keywords and apersons keywordniche.
It is also important to understand for a moment, that it can take a long time to start earning money with affiliate marketing, so you must keep taking action and Building your list of targeted subscribers. This can also be achieved by using some paid for promotions but to a lesser degree.
Onwards and Upwards
Following this, you need to move on to the next stage of your campaign which is to get your traffic to actually visit your site and start taking action. The next stage depends on what you have chosen to promote and it can go on to increase your number of subscribers and ultimately your sales for whatever product you are promoting.
Using this system, it is possible to build a very successful business online and to generate income as you build your list of willing and responsive buyers.
Choose the Product
Look for a product with a large market life-cycle.
