How to Choose Legitimate Products to Promote?

15 replies
I am new to Affiliate Marketing and about to launch my site.I have built a platform on how to run the site and when to post blogs, some sort of how to build a list and all that. But now I find myself struggling in looking for legitimate products and services to start with.

then I started questioning my own ideas if I am heading the right track and all that..

My goal is to give honest reviews and help my audience gauge their decisions out from my posts and avoid giving false reviews and all..

Hope to get an honest opinion..

Hope you are all having a great day!

    If your goal is to give honest reviews and avoid giving false reviews.. Then shouldn't you be recommending/promoting products that you've actually used and have been successful with? If so, you should be able to tell a story first hand about the benefits you received, or the trouble you avoided by using the product. When you tell those stories to people who want those benefits, or to avoid the same trouble, you'll generate sales.

    To me, that is an honest review. Not finding product that others have reviewed and rewriting their reviews like so many others do.

      Thank you! I will take note of that, very helpful tip.

      So I should start from my hosting review then.

      But what if I have not used so many online products, meaning I have less product reviews to make?
      And meaning I should try testing products then I can review them..It's called investment maybe? Use the product then sell as an affiliate..

      Cheers!

        In my opinion, you will lose a lot of credibility if you start to randomly promote products that you have no personal experience with.

        With that said, what is your site/blog about? Not every one of your posts should be a review of something. You should provide helpful information and then recommend products as you use them and they help you.

          Yeah it's what I am thinking.

          It's just that I as a newbie and handling all things at once it can be very overwhelming.
          My site is more on promoting work-life-balance. So it covers all three major aspects in life nothing specific.

          I plan to post life simple life hacks- about business more on for newbie like me, relationship and spirituality.

          I think things will fall into place once I finalize my posts before launching. Guess it all boils down to what the site has to offer to the audience. -crossing my fingers.

          I appreciate your suggestions..

        You don't need to make review many products, concentrate on products you got well. If you have not used them, you can see reviews or ask someone who used. By the way, your website tell about work life balance, I think it's not detailed. You should choose a narrower topic.

    If you're goal is to give the best reviews be prepared to spend money on the product itself.

    Actually try out the product, and in your reviews use images and examples to showcase some of the best features of the product (without giving it away of course). This will add credibility to your review simply because it shows you've actually put in the time to test it out, and readers will appreciate that and be more inclined to buy through your links...

    A person that works as a professional and in the field of critical appraisal does just that - a person that works in marketing as a professional does just that. What field do you work in - and what field do you want to work in as a professional ?

    Of course as a consumer one can have an opinion (see below). Within democratic capitalism it is a reasonable presumption that the majority that buy any product are hoping to implement that product in such a way as to provide a benefit either for oneself or another and for a specific purpose - work - rest or play. Be careful with your words however 'Unfit for purpose' did you allude to ?

    https://youtu.be/W6HJ5LeDOyU

    Understand the purpose of the product firstly. What is the audience/market of the product - what is the audiences' class (democratic capitalist terms).

    A good product should be beneficial to democratic capitalism and the people of it.
    IE - it should allow people to either enjoy - accrue wealth or provide a benefit in some or other way. There has to be a benefit.

    In the SYSTEM that is democratic capitalism, there are classes within the population - each class has differing roles, targets and capabilities, each person seeks a product that benefits them in some way including mere enjoyment and/or to fulfill one or more of these targets and roles within the system.

    Democratic capitalism IS NOT ABOUT just getting rich. Indeed what a person means in that they seek to accrue wealth, is that they seek to PROGRESS within the class system. Those that dont seek this, and seek merely to get rich, are only ever going to be - merely rich - NOT SUCCESSFUL or PROGRESSIVE in democratic capitalistic terms.

    There is NO SUCCESS outside of democratic capitalism. Merely rich is anarchic profiteering, capitalism without the morality of democracy. There is no such thing as capitalism without the democracy - PERIOD.

    Formulas to become merely rich are merely formulas. Democratic Capitalism like the POSITIVE of the universe is a SYSTEM. Thus the pathway OF success is systemic.

    So my question to you primarily is - What is your class ?

    You have to try the product yourself first in order to make an honest review, and if possible be one of the first people to review it, then you can get an advantage in the search engines.

    Make a YouTube review, with the product name in the title. Many people search YouTube and Google for product reviews, and seeing a video is the best way to do it.

    Have a strong call to action and get people to click your affiliate link to purchase.

    Good luck!

    First like a lot have said here,
    you should try it yourself to see what
    really works.

    Second,
    You can start searching
    and really investigate with
    real proofs from people who are
    a success in the affiliate that you want
    to give review at.

    and best of luck.

    Focus on quality review instead of quantity. You can start with 1 product and adding it gradually. Start with the product that you are really familiar with, meaning you have use it yourself or have read a lot of other peoples' reviews about that particular product. The key is your review most be quality, most precisely review the product from different aspects in detail in the most natural voice.

    Product that you have use it yourself doesn't mean you have to spend money to buy it. You can always request for review copy, especially digital products. The owners are more than happy to hand you the review copy if your intention are genuine. That's why having an initial quality review is important. You can show the product owner the reviews that you have done in the past that will help to build up your credibility.

    Thank you all for a very information and genuine advice. I am going through all of them and making a check list.

    As per my website. It is from the name amazingeve.com and up to what is the website is all about work-life-balance appears to be so broad and it's hard to focus on a niche where the site can be known for. So I am doing a research on it and will change the site name to target a narrower audience.

    Have a great day you all guys.

    I agree with Gambino and Jinmin.

    First, it is easier to review a product which you have personally used.
    Second, every review comes with questions from people reading the reviews. An honest first hand review helps you answer these questions and build trust (as an affiliate) with the prospective buyer.
    And try to review and promote products of reputed companies who have a proven track record. That way, the task of promoting the product becomes easier when the buyer knows that he is buying a product from a reputable stable. You can track the sales record on platforms such as ClickBank and JVZoo.

    I hope this helps.

    I don't trust most of the products on clickbanks, so i wouldn't promote them.

    This being said, if you believe it is product that you would be willing to buy yourself, then it is something worth promoting
