Can I market other people's products online?

7 replies
I'd like to do digital marketing by contacting visitors who abandoned their carts, social media writing, that kind of thing, but I don't have my own products to market. And whenever I google 'digital marketing', the internet talks about selling my own products.

What I'd like to know is, is it possible to market other people's products online, if I do digital marketing on Ebay, for instance?

    Most people don't market their own products.
    You might want to look into dropshipping or
    affiliate marketing. I would recommend the
    latter. Having done both I find dropshipping
    to be a hassle/headache, but there's money
    to be made if you want to deal with it.

    There may be a geography issue in this but if you live in the States or Canada or most of Europe you can sell stuff on eBay.

    Read this: ( https://www.warriorforum.com/warrior...days-ebay.html ) and buy stuff to sell on eBay, its not hard. In terms of "Digital Marketing" pay attention to option #2 in this post ( https://www.warriorforum.com/warrior...l#post11484008 ). This removes the "seller fees" because you have brought the traffic from outside eBay to sell your item. We float around 40% of our sales are sold this way.

    Hope that Helps!

    From the best of my knowledge, yes, you can market other people's products online, which is called affiliate marketing; that's what I do. I do not use the platforms you make mention, but you can use whatever means you choose to market affiliate products as long as you are making sales. You can sign up to several affiliate networks for products, and you can start with Click bank dot com.

    Yes, you can market other people's products. That's affiliate marketing. You can sign up to be an affiliate and get a unique tracking link that tags your visits and sales to you so that you earn referral commissions. You should make sure you understand each vendor's terms for their affiliate program.

    A couple of popular and trusted affiliate marketing platforms are Clickbank and JVZoo.

    I've used and made money from both.

    Something else you could consider is investing in PLR or private label rights where you purchase a license to market the product under your own company name as if you were the creator of it.

    This can save you money and time on market research because the makers of the products conducted their own market research to make sure it would be profitable before they sold the license for others to market it under their own private label.

    Personally, I purchase these to give me ideas for inspiration that I can use to add even more value to my own products.

    Finally, you should really consider creating your own products because you own complete control over those assets and have total editorial control over what goes into those products you can sell and use as assets.

    Product creation is a skill and a highly valuable one that can be (and should be) developed.
