Are you not succeeding in your Affiliate Marking venture? If so it may well be the products that you have been promoting! So many individuals trying to succeed and make a living with Affiliate Marketing just don’t spend the time researching the product, or products they have chosen to promote.
Let me tell you, you are not alone. Most individuals start by signing up with ClickBank, because that’s the easiest and simplest way to find products. What the heck, there are hundreds of thousands of products to choose from. It is easy to find a vendor, create a Hoplink and add it to your website. Wow that was easy enough. Right?
Well after a few weeks you begin to wonder why you are not getting any sales. That’s when you begin to realize that you should of spent more time choosing the correct product to promote. The enormous amount of products offered on ClickBank can be overwhelming, especially if you are a Newbie. No doubt you have questions. Will a product sell well? How stiff is the competition? What do all the stats and numbers tell you?
Even though there is no sure method to find that perfect profitable product to promote, there are ways to increase your chances of success. Let’s discuss some steps for deciding on a profitable product to promote from ClickBank.
Choosing Your Market
Your first step is to choose the Niche you want to market. You will be spending an enormous amount of time in this area so you might want to choose a market that you have above average skills in. Or maybe your favorite hobby or even one of your favorite passions.
By having an existing background in a Niche is a huge advantage when it comes to the marketing of that Niche. It is much easier to write convincing high quality content when you know what you are talking about. So go to ClickBanks Market place and make a list of the Niches that you feel you can do a good job of promoting. Now keep in mind that it not only needs to be something you like writing about, it must also be a profitable one!
Knowing Who Your Customer Is
Let’s say that you chose candle making from your short list of Niches. If so you need to delve deeper into the candle making process. It is important that you have an understanding who in this Niche is your buying customer, as well as what they are buying. The best way to acquire this information is by visiting the different forums related to candle making. By doing so you will be able to discover what your buyers problems, wants, and needs are.
It doesn’t stop there. You also need to consider how to target eager buyers in the candle making market. You need to consider how narrow is your Niche? Because, if it’s too narrow you will not be able to make enough sales to make it profitable. On the flipside if it’s too broad it will be very hard to get your site to rank high in the search engine so that your prospects can find you.
Acquiring The Best Products To Sell
Ok, so now that you have an understanding of who your market is, and what they want. You need to return to ClickBank and find products to promote that will fill their needs. ClickBank has a measure called gravity that shows how well each product sells, based on the number of sales that have been made, and how recent the sales were.
A really high gravity, such as 100+ is an indication that there is high competition in that Niche. Now don’t let that scare you off! Competition is a good thing. It shows there’s a high demand for products in that particular Niche. On the flip side just because something has a low gravity doesn’t mean that it isn’t worth promoting. Often a new product or item may have a low gravity because it is new. You should never not consider a quality product just because it has a low gravity.
Choose A Niche With Multiple Products
It is in your best interest to find a Niche that has several related products that are being sold through ClickBank. Because if you only have the one product for sale in your Niche, even if it is flying off the shelf you will have a difficult time competing with affiliates that are already established in your chosen to market.
There is another thing I should mention at this time. You are probably asking, OK, what is it. Here it is. There is another way to add products to your site. And that is to become an Affiliate for companies that sell the kind of products that relate to your Niche. When someone clicks on your Affiliate Link and buys, you will receive a commission on the items they purchase. This is something that I do often.
Promote High Commission Products Whenever Possible
You want to go for the higher commission products simply because you are not going to make much of a living off 5-10 % commissions. Try to find products that pay from 45 to 65% Commission. The main reason for this is you need to cover your overhead, as well as the time you are putting into your business. On the flipside though if the product you are promoting is of a high dollar value you will be able to accept a lower commission % and still be in good shape.
Last But Not Least Use The Vendors Sales Page
One last item of importance. When, you are in ClickBank you will see that the vendor usually provides a pretty good sales page. I suggest that you take a really hard look at it, because it is going to help you convert the HopLink they give you into sales, and sales mean commissions. Right?
- You need to look it over very carefully and determine if it is of the high quality that you want.
- Does it sound too good to be true?
- Is it convincing?
- Does it address your markets concerns?
- Does it compel you to buy?
- If you are not satisfied with it and it doesn’t meet the above specifications, you should rewrite it!
You have mastered the first stage of being a successful Affiliate Marketer by choosing the right products to promote. If you do it right and stick with using only high quality content in your promotions you will definitely increase your chances of making a good living with Affiliate Marketing.
