Anybody promote Amazon products that cost $10k+?

by 58 comments
Hmmm I thought about it, because I would only have to pull in 1-2 sales a month to be happy.(At first)

But then, the cookie only last 24 hours, correct? With a price tag that high, I get the idea a lot of people might not buy within the first 24 hours, but rather weigh their options.. look around.. put a lot of thought into it (obviously)

Any thoughts?

    Kory, I'll put a few really high-priced items in a site if they fit, for two reasons...

    One, it makes some of the other items look less expensive by comparison.

    Two, it's easier to draw the lightning strike if you have a lightning rod up when the storm goes by.

    I haven't really targeted 5-figure items, though.

    Yeah this is a tough one. I would say the chances of someone purchasing a $10k+ item online are slim. Factor in the 24 hour cookie and you have a pretty darn expensive impulse buy!!

    I can't hurt to have a link on your site just in case, someone does bite the bullet.

    The 24 hour cookie makes it difficult but if you target only "buy (name of product)" keywords they might buy there and then.

    Better finding an affliate program with at least a 1 week cookie so you don't miss out on the big commissions.

    Woah, that's interesting but what products worth 10k are you promoting?

    I've seen this discussion pop up a couple of times over the years and I have to admit that the high priced items niche does intrigue me.

    I'd love to get my hands on some info on products and price points purchased online.

    By 10K+ I'm assuming you are talking about the jewelry category. I wonder how much of that stuff sells.

    I found this funny...

    Certified Diamond (Heart, Good cut, 8.00 carats, D color, IF clarity)
    $932,700.00
    Eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping.
    If you're dropping a million for a diamond, I'm not sure you want that delivered UPS overnight even if shipping is free.

    The only products I've had any luck selling at Amazon are those that are not generally available anywhere else. I think that's even more applicable to high end stuff. I know that if I saw a big screen TV at Amazon for thousands of dollars, the first thing I'd do is check other sites, especially those with actual store locations, for their prices and availability. If Best Buy or WalMart carried the same TV at anywhere near the same price there's no way I'd order it at Amazon.

    At Best Buy I can see one live, I can touch it, I can get it right away, I can return it easily if there's a problem.

    But that's just me and as others have said, one $200 commission makes up for a lot of $2 commissions.

    Now if you could find high priced items that also aren't generally available elsewhere, then you might do really well.

    I tend to focus on products that :
    1. Have at least 20 customer reviews
    2. Have at least 4 stars
    3. Are prices at $100 or higher

    Those $10K tickets items usually do not meet those 2 criteria for me, so I wont promote them. The ones with 4 stars and up and with 20 or more customer reviews tend to sell better...UNLESS you have a site or niche that specially fits those higher ticket items.

    Not yet, but ask me again in a few months...

    I just purchased a domain to put up amazon products valued at a few hundred to a few thousand...

    I will have it live later this week...

    With some experience, I will be able to answer...

    Until then, I am running on faith... I can because I know that I have been successful in other pursuits and I have made money on Amazon previously...

    I know couple of warriors are doing this. One of them is selling 4 to 5 demand rings per month. She is not selling anything on her website but she is collecting leads and helping clients to make a better buying decision.

    You can replicate this process.

    Hi,

    a little bit outdatet I know, please call me a Ghoul......(shame), but I try to learn as much as possible about promote amazon products and high ticket items as so.

    About one thing I be little bit sceptic there, I can not imagine that when you promote high ticket industrial item to an entrepreneur/company, they will not buy this item on amazon,they buy it from their wholesaler/importer, so never a Hotel company will buy a large bulk of outdoor wood gardening sets, no they buy it from the wholesaler who has 50% from the price who amazon offers.

    When I need for my company an Kärcher industrial cleaner, I buy that directly from the Kärcher wholesaler and not by amazon.


    So as an affiliate,especial as an greenhorn noob, I can not imagine to promote such products as an affiliate.

    I think you promote them through your list not through your "product review page" direct ?
    when you do syndication, you need target traffic from industrial consumers from industrial ezines as example.


    But I think promote such high ticket industrial items, this will be not the step for beginners,this is for advanced marketers (?).

    Ohje I have dig up this older thread,please not stoned me...............


    best wishes

    How do you know what products are just sold on "amazon" do you just search through Google and see for yourself?
  • Profile picture of the author marco005
    Hi,

    @JohnMcCabe; with your 35 sets of $499 outdoor tables.....
    How does your product review looks? Do you write long reviews with 800 words or more for 1 product?

    Or shorter reviews with 300-550 words?

    best wishes

    It's just like gold ira rollover affiliate. I just made $3,000 with one lead. It's totally doable but it can take a lot of leads or you just have to be patient with a small amount of traffic. lol

    The 24 hour cookies is what your up against, they might do more research then you don't get paid.

    I have an amazon product that I have a review of it, it is about $3500, and I get 4 orders in last 3 months, so you can try to sell $10k items too, but it will be harder.

    The conversion rate of that review is like %0.2, so you must have lots of visitor in buying stage to get the commission in high end products.

    The good thing is when they buy that item they usually buy other things too.
