Affiliate networks or direct affiliate?

4 replies
Hello guys
I am planning to make a website based in teaching people how to draw niche,
and I have trouble finding offers to promote in affiliate networks.
Would you recommend searching courses to promote elsewhere (like for instance a course that has a direct affiliate program)
Or should I better change the industry/niche?
Thank you.

    What do you mean by "how to draw niche"?

    If you mean "nice", then there are a lot of affiliate products related to this. You should look at sites hosting online courses.

    If you know your subject, then there is no need to change niche. If you can write for this niche, then it's ok.

      "how to draw niche" means a marketing niche themed "teaching people how to draw, beginner drawing courses, how to draw X or Y (eg. a person, or a car)
      Can you give some example of sites for this? Online courses?

    So why limit your search to just the affiliate networks?
    Google and Bing both have better search engines than any of the affiliate networks.


    Think about this for a minute...
    1. if you find 2 niche-related products on ClickBank (for example) do you stop looking?
    2. What if there are 3 more related products on JVZoo, or Warrior Plus, or Amazon, or...
    3. what if (heaven forbid) there is ONE relevant product on one of the other affiliate networks that converts 2X or 3X as well as your ClickBank product?
    4. How much competition do all those other affiliates on the network represent?
    5. Is it just possible that they will share in whatever success the product achieves?

    Once upon a time someone said...
    "reach for the low-hanging fruit" and affiliate marketers mentally translated that into "promote whatever is easiest to find".

    If affiliate marketers broaden their search for product beyond what is found on one or two affiliate networks (i.e. put a little work into the front-end) rather than buying an Amazon "store" WP theme (for example) that automatically sucks in product descriptions, graphic, etc. for a given niche and appends their affiliate id, they
    1. can find more unique offers (i.e. not already promoted by 200 other affiliates), and
    2. grow their product offerings in that niche (over time), rather than cranking up another new web site in another niche because they ran out of relevant products on any given network

    There's nothing wrong with promoting products from an affiliate network(s), but why limit yourself? Broaden your search for product and you can find relevant products that may have been around for years, but haven't been advertised by an army of affiliates. For all intents and purposes, they are "unique" and your list will reward you for telling them.

    IMO typically there is value in dealing with affiliate networks opposed to dealing direct.
    The biggest benefit is often the payment terms, normally networks will pay you much faster than direct.
