Affiliate products to promote

17 replies
Hi all,

Quick query for those that make money through promoting afilliate products. I've been looking at the topselling clickbank products and have to say some of them are laughable. I can't actually believe people buy some of the stuff that's on there. What other sites/resources do you use to find affiliate products to promote and sell???

    RAP Bank*Instant Commissions Vault - Rotating payments
    JVZoo.com - Instant Commission Platform for Sellers and Affiliates - Instant AND Delayed payments, each product is different.
    iDavi - THE Digital Product Marketplace (I THINK rotating payments)
    DigiResults — Work Less, Sell More (I THINK instant payments)

    All of them pay your commission directly to your paypal.

    However, each product & each site will have different payment terms, so be sure you check the 'fine print' of whatever you wanna promote, that way you know what to expect.

    Rotating payments = 1st sale goes to vendor, 2nd goes to you, 3rd to vendor, 4th to you, and so on.

    Delayed payments = Your commissions are held until after the refund period, kinda like clickbank (I think - I've never used clickbank myself so I cant be sure)

    Instant payments = you get instant commission as soon as the sale is made, no waiting for payments to be approved.

    Guru,

    Do you prefer any of those that you recommended in your post over ClickBank?

    The reason why people buy those products is because they cater to some of the most desperate needs of people. And most of the product owners on top of that market place do millions of dollars each year. So yes, people do buy.

    How do you know which ones are "topselling"? ClickBank doesn't disclose sales figures.

    It's debatable the extent to which it's "on there", Jay. ClickBank is only a retailer. It's only the payment-processing pages that are really "on there", isn't it? The sales pages are on vendors' own sites, and all the traffic generation, pre-selling, list-building and so on takes place outside ClickBank.

    Like any retailer of over 15,000 different products, there are many very good ones and some terrible ones, too.

    People are buying them, alright.

    ClickBank's even longer-established than Google and has now paid out over $2 Billion in client earnings.

    If it's helpful, this is how I select the ones I find people will buy in large numbers (and not ask for refunds!): http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post2161932

    thanks Alexa I'm just trying to find a niche with the products i like(personal development, healing) that i could freely write articles about which unfortunately seem to have a very low gravity. I just did a general popularity search and it's churning up the get rich quick schemes, how to text your ex back, pxnis enlargement, food crisis!!! Thanks for the links i'll check them out. I may just pick my niche anyway and run with it cos I just want to get going and getting tired of all the keyword stuff.

      For me (and several others here whom I know to be killing it on ClickBank, as affiliates), that would be "fortunately", not "unfortunately".

      what are you talking about.

      Some of the lowest gravity products on clickbank are our highest converting.

      Stick with these, health, wealth and relationship niches and you cannot go wrong.

      I hate the ebooks that tell you you need to pick a gravity of 60 or more. That is false. Gravity is just the number of affiliates or successful affiliates selling products. I normally stay away from high gravity products. Instead look for the low hanging fruit with a good sales page. And make sure you test.....there will always be one product or sales page that will out pull another one.

    digi results and jv zoo are great alternatives as mentioned earlier

    also dont forget the obvious or NOT so obvious WSO`s

    wso`s convert really and if the thread has lots of comments that acts as great social proof. I like promoting wso`s i find its really simple and effective

    i would rather promote a low priced high quality wso product and sell 50

    than promote a higher priced product which has the same value and only sell say 15

    Some "gurus" whose niche is 'internet marketing', have gone in and sold clickbank products.... another thread links to a list of products which turned out to be profitable, and not only such, converted well and sold smoothly too.

    I have sold some of these products, and can vouch for some. But here is the link to a thread already discussing that idea.... (sorry, I would like to post an active link to ANOTHER approved section of the warriorforum... but the rules are not helping me be helpful here???)

    www dot warriorforum dot com/main-internet-marketing-discussion-forum/324687-worst-clickbank-product-conversions.html#post3284058


    Also, just because a product has a high gravity, that does NOT guarantee product or sales page quality. In many of the cases I have seen, it actually meant that it was just promoted more often, or that it had been around longer.... it's kind of like that saying "throw enough potty against a wall, and some of it is bound to stick"...

    Some of those products, are like that. Keep that in mind as you promote.

    YOU, as an affiliate CAN read over a sales page too.....and can see if the sales page is even something that you feel is relevant enough, strong enough, or marketing oriented enough to begin with, to help you get a commission.

    Some of these products have Facebook fan pages, or the Authors have pages.... you can browse those pages, and see REAL people discussing their purchases, asking questions.... that feedback too, is valuable, so that you can see how active people are with that specific product, and if they want "more"....and if they are even happy with their purchases.

    Much like here, you where you can see in the paid advertising threads, that some people ARE unhappy, or didn't feel the product delivered.

    Those are things you can do on your own, without even having to promote it yet... just to gauge the success of it.

    If you have an active but forgiving list, you can always throw it there too, if you know how to do it... to test it out, before you go and throw everything into the promotion of a product.

    I would finally suggest too, that you first test out products with traffic methods that don't cost you dearly. Take advantage of free marketing methods, or marketing methods that don't make you have to pay for every click or view.

    Just a few thoughts, on how to ease your affiliate marketing pains.

    I just wanted to address the part about a product being perceived as 'laughable'.

    Those products have made quite a lot, despite their initial appearance. While Clickbank products have a reputation for being cheap, they're certainly onto something. You're also certainly onto something if you can think of a way to offer something slightly new. Reinvent the wheel and whatnot but add a few features that people are really looking for.

    Just my two cents about that.

    I generally tend to look for what other people are promoting through my SEO research. I then skip the middleman (Clickbank, Peerfly, etc.) and go directly to the website of the affiliate product being sold. I then check it by hand to see if I think it would convert or not, run it through a trial and then dump it if it's no good.

    The fact that they sell says something about the nature of marketing. Whether the product itself is any good is another matter. Yes you can sell a crappy product with great marketing. But you can only do it once. So aim for great product + great marketing.
