How can I advertise for a certain product

9 replies
I'm pretty new to this. I have done a lot of reading and learning and I will soon be ready to put what I've learned into an action plan. I have a question about a product my husband has purchased and absolutely loves. What if we wanted to market that particular product on a blog site? How would we go about doing that? This is not a click bank product or anything. It's just something we really love. Any ideas how we can get involved in their product marketing?

Thanks

    Is this an informational or physical product?

    Create a compelling Youtube video testimonial for this product. Be sure to show how the product works, if it's demonstrable and talk about why you love it. It sounds as if you and your husband are big fans of this product, so your enthusiasm will sell it very well. You have many options when it comes to how you sell this product, depending on whether it's an info or physical product. Explore all your options, before deciding on one. Best of luck with your idea.

      Well it's a physical product and it's not ours. So I can promote it sure but how would I get any credit for the sales through my page? I am not aware of how to get a link to this product as it's not listed anywhere that I know of.

    What type of product did he purchase, and when you say market it, I assume you mean its PLR or a product you want to affiliate market?

    Regardless of what information it is, create a wordpress blog and post on it regularly, also set up a squeeze page with some free information offered and then collect emails and promote your product to the email list.

    But the question still seems a little vague for me to be able to give you more detail of exactly what to do

    Well I'll give a hypothetical to help explain it. My husband and I buy a product like a lotion or a shampoo and we absolutely love it. So much that we tell everyone they have to try it. Then we see there is a real interest in it and wonder why can't we write our review and sell this product ourselves. But we don't have the physical product to sell. We are just consumers. How would I get a link for this certain product.

      Hi, it depends if they have a affiliate program for the product and if they sell it
      online. If they have a website selling the product, you could see if you can find a link
      which will be something like "affiliates" "webmasters" "partner" etc.

      If that doesn't work, simply ask them whether they have a affiliate program.

      If the don't have, or if they are not the creators/owners of the product,
      search sites like Amazon, Ebay ect. to see if the product is listed there.

      Apply and promote it via Amazon, Ebay's affiliate program for commission.

      Or you could find a wholesale supplier, buy in bulk and create a online store
      around it, or sell it locally.

      If the product targets a specific category like "dandruff", "dry hair" etc, you
      could build a niche site around the 'problem' people have and offer the product
      as the 'solution'

      Hope this helps to get more clarity and ideas.

      Best regards.....

      You could contact the original maker of this product and ask to become a reseller. They might set up a link that would direct your traffic to their site or allow you to have the product dropshipped directly to your customers. The person would make the purchase from your site and then you would accept the order and money and then go to the main site and login there and dropship the item to your customers. Dropshipping is a common practice, when you don't want to stock the item.

      You would just need to charge more than the original product maker charges so that you would earn money. You will need to set this up with them though.
