That’s a big one for me, I want whatever I do or promote to provide a real value or benefit to the end user. I don’t want to lie to myself just to make a buck.
Over last few days I've been trying to find some quality digital products to promote for some pay per click campaigns, but I feel like I'm running into a brick wall. I've been looking at products in the clickbank marketplace as well as on regnow.
I've been trying to find products that seem to already be doing well for current affiliates and that have a decent commission. But when I examine these products more closely and do a bit of research to see how people who have purchased the products actually feel, I seem to find a lot of negative feedback.
Then I tried reversing things abit by looking at products in the markets I'm interested in that have positive feedback. At first this seemed like a much better approach, but what I'm noticing is that many quality products provide much lower commissions.
I'm trying to figure out what's the best solution for my dilemma. It's a weird situation because part of me has been trained over time to look for products based on monetary factors, popularity and conversions. I now consider those secondary (still important) factors; I just can't seem to find the right balance.
Am I making too much out of product selection?
I've looked a lot of the most heavily promoted products out there and I am surprised at how many people are actually willing to promote some of this stuff. It makes me question my own judgment.
Right now I'm thinking I may have to just change my approach to affiliate marketing. Maybe take a look at some in-house affiliate programs within certain markets. I've even thought about going the physical products route but that's not something I'm familiar with.
The problem is I feel like I'm wasting time and that I may be stuck on this product selection issue. Part of me keeps saying just promote something already dammit.
I could really use some advice and guidance from more experienced warriors who hear where I'm coming from...
Any and all help is much appreciated.
