Why It's A Good Idea To Promote Affiliate Products
When you promote an affiliate product, every time you make a sale you will receive a commission. Now depending on what
affiliate network you join with, your commission rate will vary. Amazon's affiliate program offers very low commissions
(ex: 5%), but their products sell FAST.
Affiliate networks like Clickbank, Paydotcom, JVzoo, and Commission Junction gives you the opportunity to earn 50%
commission or more. So if a vendor has a product that is selling for $200, for every sale that YOU generate, you will
receive 50% of the sale. This means you will make $100 every time you generate a sale.
Some people have taken this process and have turned it into a million dollar empire. And a lot of other people have
used this process and are now making 6-figures a year. Selling affiliate products aren't hard, you just have to market
them in the same way that you would market anything else online.
There are all kinds of affiliate products out there. There affiliate programs for ebooks, books, CD's, DVD's,
instructional and motivational products, and even tangible items like tables, televisions, gaming consoles, and etc.
Now your commission rate will vary depending on what you're promoting. So if I were you, and you wanted to earn more
money... I would start with an affiliate marketplace that gives you very high commissions.
Even though Amazon's products sell fast, you STILL have to promote them. Whether you're using a blog, a website, or an
email newsletter... you still have to promote your products. So if you're going to do some marketing for an affiliate
program... whether low commission rate or high commission rate... you might as well promote the ones that have a high
Affiliate marketing isn't a hard discipline to learn. For the most part, all you will need is a website (or blog), an
email newsletter and list, and a good product that has been proven to sell. This is something that is essential to your
success with affiliate marketing, and it's a reliable way of doing business online.
Make it a point to learn as much about affiliate marketing as you can. It's a great income model, and for some
people... it's best business in the world to be in. You will want to research and consider it for your business. If you
don't know anything about internet marketing, you should start with this first.
Some people like to consider selling eBay also, but I still think that affiliate marketing takes the cake on this one.
Find yourself a good affiliate marketplace to sign up with, and you will be good to go.
Good luck with your affiliate marketing efforts!
