The best possible way to find affiliate marketing products

6 replies
I have seen many affiliate marketers who are just starting out and haven't figured out the best possible solution to finding the right strategy to find affiliate products for their niche business.

But first, let's discuss the consequences if you choose a wrong product and try to promote it to the right audience.

1. Frustrated to make sales
2. Non converting campaigns
3. Huge refunds to deal with (If you make a sale)
4. A headache

But...

What if there's a proven way to find profitable affiliate products. No this is not some scam software or even a magic wand that will do the trick.

You have to do it manually.

But it's well worth spending the time researching than spending 100s if not 1000s of Dollars on advertising campaigns.

Step 1: Have passion for what you are promoting. If you try to force something that you don't love, you'll end up with "NEGATIVE ROI"

Step 2: Start Promoting company products or brand products for that matters. Spending time researching for brandable substitutes is the best possible solution to success.

Step 3: Find products that solves a problem

similar to this there are multiple ways through which you can find an affiliate offer such as,
  • Searching online
  • Applying for Affiliate Networks
  • Direct sales from the company website
  • Word of mouth

Using toolbar like Moz Rank on Google, you can easily find what links point to that particular offer and monitor your competitor landing pages.


Finding what payout rates do they offer:

This can vary from one affiliate network to another. Just keep in mind that the commission rate is not the ultimate thing you need to worry about.

Many times a product that has a lower commission rate converts well, than one with a higher commission rate. You should always promote an affiliate offer that you believe in.

If possible,

Purchase the product yourself, test it out first and then recommend it to your customer.

This way you will have a better grasp on how you can promote that particular offer.

Cookie Duration:

The longer the cookie length the better it will be for you to track, even if the customer purchased through your link 3 months later.

I hope you guys liked this short article on how to find profitable affiliate offers for any kind of niche on the internet and how you can do a quick competitor analysis whether that offer is working or not.

    that's a helpful post especially for new affiliate marketers. another important aspect that need to be considered is having affiliate programs that offer flexible payments, starting with digital products or instant payment affiliate networks will be great. they'll help you earn fast so that you can invest in your marketing campaigns.

      Flexible payments are the most important part of any affiliate marketing business.

    Excellent points! I'd add another step here, especially if you are new to affiliate marketing.


    Once you've found your product of choice, if you do not know the vendor (even though the product and commissions sound very compelling) and if the product is not part of a large trusted affiliate network (like ClickBank for example), before you spend time, efforts, and cash promoting make you make a research to find out if this vendor has a good reputations actually PAYING AFFILIATES regularly no-blink...


    It's been seen all along the years, folks losing cash and dignity, and often much more, because of unscrupulous vendors apparently having 'hard time' paying their affiliates. That of course almost never happen to the big hitters, but the rest of the flock may sometimes have hard time to get paid their right due.


    If one can get instant commission this is by far the most appreciable situation, but of course this is not always possible indeed not available at all in many niches. But, when one starts online, searching for instant commission products to promote is a very, VERY good starting point.

      On point. We do need to research quite a bit in order to make sure that we are not putting ourselves into future contingencies. Well said, Andy.

      You said it right, testing out the product helps a lot, whether it's for making review videos or even taking snap shots from the program and making a pre-sales pitch video.
