Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing

When you begin researching the first step is to find a niche that will make you money.  Popular products are also profitable products.  Don’t bother promoting an item that nobody wants to buy.  There are many places you can look to find what is hot right now.

One of the best affiliate programs as at Amazon.com.  When you sign up with them you can promote anything on the site.  Just click the bestsellers section to start getting ideas of what types of items people are buying.  Start with a category that interests you.  Amazon will tell you the Top 10 selling products in that category.  Use the product descriptions to help you write content for your website or blog.  When someone reads your review or article and clicks over to Amazon, you will get a commission for anything they buy.

Another affiliate program that lets you promote a huge variety of items is Ebay.com.  Two helpful tools for this program are the Ebay Pulse tool at pulse.eBay.com and Terapeak at terapeak.com.  Here you can research the products that are hot on Ebay right now.  You can also research product trends to find out the best times to promote certain items.  When you find something that is selling well you can promote it in a couple of ways.  You can become an affiliate of Ebay directly or look online to see if that product has its own affiliate program.

You may want to promote digital products which usually have a higher commission rate than physical products.  Clickbank is a reputable company that has been online since 1998.  There are over 10,000 digital products divided into categories.  Even beginners can start making money through Clickbank.  You don’t even need a website to apply for the program.

Once you are accepted into Clickbank just start searching for items you want to promote.  You can sort the products by what they call gravity.  High gravity means people are making money promoting that digital product.   You can also see how much money you will make from each sale.  If you decide to promote an item you can copy the “hop” link which contains your affiliate ID.  You will receive a commission whenever someone clicks your link and buys that product.

Whether you decide to promote physical products or digital products, make sure you spend your time finding something that is a proven money maker.  There are many tools and websites to help you.  Head over to Amazon, Ebay, or Clickbank now and start your research!
