Default Anybody promote Amazon products that cost $10k+?

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.

Get this one thing right and it will be like you are the only one they are listening to. Probably because you will be the only one they are listening to.

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.

High end amazon products are best promoted offline, direct sales. When you close a deal, use your affiliate link.

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...

If you're dropping a million for a diamond, I'm not sure you want that delivered UPS overnight even if shipping is free.

u aware?

We target for example heavy industry, telecommunications providers, automotive, hotels, and hospitals to name a few. They will buy not just high end products, but also they will buy in quantity - not just onesies and twosies. There is a huge market offline.

This is a huge tip. The biggest sale I ever made via Amazon was an outdoor table and chairs set. Someone, presumably a hotel or resort, bought 35 sets @ ~$499 per set.

That was a lightning strike...

If only you knew who it was, right? That's why I find customers for Amazon offline. If someone buys once, they are most likely to buy again ... and again. What I often do is use the "recommend" feature on Amazon, which is based on their previous purchases. Go back to your customers and pitch them on other products. Don't give them the order link (your affiliate link) until they are ready to order within 24hrs. You don't have to give them your affiliate link to all the products they buy, just one will do.

Default Re: Anybody promote Amazon products that cost $10k+?

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.

It's that 24 hour cookie that will get you. The person may come to your promotion, see the ad, and check it out on Amazon. Those higher priced items generally take a week or more before the person makes their decision. Once they do, they'll just go back to Amazon and purchase it. However, your cookie will be expired.

Default Re: Anybody promote Amazon products that cost $10k+?

I've sold many physical products between 10 and 20K from one of my review sites but it's not from Amazon. I recommend having at least one of these sites as it can make you a full time income on auto pilot and with very little traffic.

Check out this screenshot where you will see that last month I made about 2K in commission from 76 unique visitors to my site. That site has been performing like that and better for about 5 months straight now.



You can go to CJ.com or any of those networks and look for things like Private Jet charters that costs 10 - 30K per booking. These guys pay around 9% I think so you just review all the companies out there and add your aff links and bam, get on the search engines or use PPC and make sales.

Cheers

That was a nice sale. Do you have a website about the table and chairs or was it just a random purchase?

At the time, I had a site about landscaping and outdoor living spaces. The table and chair set was part of an article on furnishing patios and lanais (like a screened porch).

I saw the order, and I kept waiting for it to disappear like every order I ever had for multiple flat screen TVs...

That's cool. I wonder if there's a way to get more of those type of corporate sales on a regular basis without actually having to contact them offline like mentioned above.

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.

I have tried it also by promoting Amazon and other affiliate products to my subscribers in a few dozen niche lists. That has been fairly successful for repeat sales for small businesses and individuals. But to get the really large corporate accounts who order high end products and also reorder in quantity, you have to use a combination of offline sales/marketing and online follow up. Our hybrid marketing system has been extremely successful by combining Amazon's excellent conversions and product recommendations. We specifically approach large coporations in heavy industry, telecommunications providers, automotive, hotels, hospitals, etc for example.

That's really interesting. I am sure you can make an absolute killing this way and it can be probably be outsourced as well once you have a good system in place.

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...

LOL! I've been working in sales offline long before going online! Seriously, online marketers are missing a very large hungry market by ignoring offline businesses. But you can still make a lot more money online from Amazon products by building a list, and then promoting Amazon specials to that list instead of just putting up a bunch of "hope and pray" websites.

Do you have a wso or any other place I could learn a bit more about how you do what you do?

I am sure you realize that I could never compete with you directly, but I could cut my own little niche similar to yours...

I am definitely interested in learning a bit more about what you do...

If nothing else, let's hijack this thread and make it about you and your business model... LOL

Actually I think the OP's question infers how do you promote high end Amazon products, so this is not in any way "hijacking" this thread, LOL. Nor is it so complicated as to require a WSO, OMG!

While jan roos and others certainly seem to have been very successful promoting online, my experience has been selling much more using offline and online methods. Afterall, both of these models are sales and marketing techniques, and the basic principles of sales and marketing have not really changed at all. We are just using different tools.

Basically, I have a group of sales people who have printouts of Amazon products tailored to the particular industry/business they are selling to. It takes a lot of effort to make these presentations which is why I sell the high end products to make it worthwhile. When they make a sale, they use their smartphones with my affiliate link to place the order. This way we have all the customer info for followup and reorders. I pay my sales people a small hourly wage plus a percentage split of sales. This really is not rocket science, especially since Amazon also recommends related products.

Do you think I really could make a WSO for this? ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!

And so you created a sister site reviewing outdoor table and chair sets from the perspective of a corporate resort purchasing agent, right?

I would imagine the best way to do this is to create a redirect off of your own site, and redirect the visitor to amazon, with the affiliate link embedded in the redirect.

So tell the staff, go to mydomain.com/product_name and have them insert the payment info.

Hey DM

Start small until you learn the process.

Print out or make flyers of the Amazon products you want to promote. (Sometimes you may want to buy some samples if products require a demo)

Have your affiliate links for each of these products saved in your smartphone on categorized webpages.

Aproach small businesses, at first, where you can speak to the owner without going through any gatekeeper.

When you make a sale, have the customer order it through the affiliate link on your smartphone.

Alternatively, make appropriate niche sites, and direct the customer to make the purchase on their computer.

Or, as mentioned above just have an Amazon redirect off your main site. (Good idea, Bill!)

Keep in mind you only need one item with an affiliate link, because you will automatically get commission on anything else the customer orders at the same time.

Every month, call or visit with some other related products using same methods as above.

As you get better at it, start promoting more expensive products to larger accounts, or go for quantity.


This really is no big secret.

My sales reps use their smartphones as a convenience for ordering on the spot, as when the prospect either does not have a computer available immediately or does not want the rep using it.

It's by far the biggest sale I've had. Without telling too much, I've had some success with items that might make good corporate gifts during this time of year. Pick the right items and you can get sales of $50 to $100 items with multiples of the item.

I wish. The sale was dumb luck, and I freely admit it. At the time, I was drunk on Adsense and the only reason I had the picture there with an affiliate link is that it was the easiest way to get the pic without stealing it.

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good...

It sounds like the smartphone is the next step up from the days when the manufacturing company I worked for equipped their reps with laptops and modems. Borrow a phone line, dial into the company intranet, and orders/shipping were/was confirmed before the rep left the office. We later added portable printers so the rep could print out purchase orders and get them signed.

myob, something's been tugging at the back of my consciousness for a few days now. Your input on this thread has whatever it is tugging harder. Thanks...

Get this one thing right and it will be like you are the only one they are listening to. Probably because you will be the only one they are listening to.

Ever wondered how strange and serendipitous so much learning

For me, the most powerful part of this thread lies in THIS sentence:

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...............

There are other factors that enter into the purchase decision. Have you actually done price comparisons between Amazon and several industrial suppliers? On many items, you'll find the prices at least competitive. Amazon rarely sells at list price; usually at a 30-40% discount. I doubt you'll find a lot of industrial distributors knocking 50% off of that.

There are also things like selection, in-stock status and quick delivery.

Since the example of selling a lot of outdoor furniture was mine, I'll remind you that I offered that as an example of the biggest sale, not a typical one.

Being a noob isn't the point. You already grasp the need to put your offers/information where the people who buy that kind of offer already are.

A beginning marketer who understands an industrial market very well will likely do better than a "grizzled marketing vet" who does not. At the least, the person who is very familiar with the market has a leg up, or a head start.

Get this one thing right and it will be like you are the only one they are listening to. Probably because you will be the only one they are listening to.

I love this strategy.

What you proposed creates INTEREST. This is the first step towards marketing ANY product, whether it's $1.00 or $10,000.

However, I would still mix in less expensive items, as it takes a lot of thought to determine if a person has the means to be able to afford a product that pricy.

Amazon once had a drive-thru coffee shop available through their affiliate program. I don't remember the name, but at that time it was worth $84,000.

Anyway, there is no reason why something like that couldn't sell among a person that you think has the money and (more importantly) the NEED.

With a product like that, I would make a pitch to restaurants to help increase their inventory.

What you need to do is think about the nature of the person likely to buy the product...

Don't give the $400 million man an advertisement for a $10,000 bracelet... chances are his wife or girlfriend already has one. But does his daughter, especially if she's getting married? Keep asking questions like that until you find that one and only marketing idea.

Selling less expensive items offline is not worth the effort, IMO. Our targeted prospects (heavy industry, telecommunications providers, automotive, hotels, hospitals, etc) are prequalified to have the means to purchase products long before the sales process begins.

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?

Marco, that sale wasn't even from a "review". It was from an article written to generate Adsense clicks.

I used the picture I did because one could look at the tips for choosing outdoor furniture and the image and see what I was writing about. It had my affiliate link because that was the easiest way to embed the image without either buying one, taking one myself or stealing one.

The article itself was around 1,000 words, mostly so I could put multiple ad blocks in the text without looking like I was stuffing ads.

Like I said above, that big sale was dumb luck. But I happily spent the referral fees anyway.

Get this one thing right and it will be like you are the only one they are listening to. Probably because you will be the only one they are listening to.

While jan roos and others certainly seem to have been very successful promoting online, my experience has been selling much more using offline and online methods. Afterall, both of these models are sales and marketing techniques, and the basic principles of sales and marketing have not really changed at all. We are just using different tools.

Basically, I have a group of sales people who have printouts of Amazon products tailored to the particular industry/business they are selling to. It takes a lot of effort to make these presentations which is why I sell the high end products to make it worthwhile. When they make a sale, they use their smartphones with my affiliate link to place the order. This way we have all the customer info for followup and reorders. I pay my sales people a small hourly wage plus a percentage split of sales. This really is not rocket science, especially since Amazon also recommends related products.

Do you think I really could make a WSO for this? ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!
I certainly would be interested! I've been selling some things on Squidoo, but the higher end products were around $400 to $500, and I don't remember selling anything for more than 1K.

Well, my real opinion of WSOs is :p ... and I've never had the time nor inclination for producing any of my own products. Besides, there are already tons of excellent books and other resources on affiliate marketing, sales, list-building, branding, etc.

However, what I have often recommended for generating massive numbers of leads for virtually any niche is Turn Words Into Traffic, by Jim and Dallas Edwards. This marketing model using article syndication for driving traffic directly to a multi-channel funnel system (online/offline) has made more millionaires for affiliates than any other method I know.

Specifically for promoting Amazon products online and to get around the limitations of their 24-hour cookie, it is essential to build lists of your buyers. People do buy Amazon products in the 5+ figure price range, but it's rarely (if ever) going to be done through affiliate product "reviews" or "presell" pages.

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
