Being able to work online from home, selling other people’s products is the dream lifestyle. You can choose when and where to work, and with the proper sales funnel, you can count on a steady stream of income while on autopilot.
It’s one of the best internet business ideas, but beware – being profitable requires hard work and a thorough understanding of how to be an effective affiliate marketer. In this post I’m going to talk about where to find products to promote, and some points to consider when choosing the product where you can be the most successful.
By far the best source for sourcing info products is Clickbank.com. As of this writing their marketplace has listings for over 13,000 unique digital products. Info products are great items to promote as Clickbank handles the shopping cart and fulfillment functions, and when a sale is made, the customer can immediately download the content. The idea is that you need to find a competitive way to advertise the product, and then send potential customers to the product sales page with a customized link indicating your affiliate ID. If someone buys the product, you get a commision.
The devil of course is in the details. Did I mention that there are 13,000 unique products to choose from? One of the very first steps, and arguably the most important, is to choose the right product to sell. As an affiliate you are highly reliant on a sales page that converts. Also, you need to make sure that the product is of very high quality and matches the description on the sales page (to minimize the return rate), has a decent price/commission ratio, and perhaps a set of affiliate tools provided by the author to help with the promotion.
In my next post I will divulge a true insider secret on how to select winning Clickbank products. Stay tuned…
