Many new affiliate marketers are hesitant to start, because they’re not sure how to find a product to promote.
Often they’ll choose a product in which they have little or no interest, simply because others are making money with the product. This can be a mistake, especially if you have no personal interest in the product.
Let’s look at three easy ways in which you can choose a product which you can promote with enthusiasm, so that you can make sales quickly.
1. Consider your life experience
What’s happening in your life right now? Perhaps you’re new mom. If so there’s an endless variety of parenting products which you can promote. Think about products which you’ve purchased recently.
Perhaps you bought a pram. Find out whether the pram has an affiliate program. If so, you’re in a great position to market that product well. You know the pros and cons of the product, so you can sell with enthusiasm, and will make many sales.
2. Consider your obsessions
Perhaps you love fashion, or you love to travel. Both areas offer plentiful affiliate programs.
Anything which you love to study, read about, and talk about, is a good area in which to search for affiliate programs.
3. Watch out for new product launches
Whenever a new product is launched, many affiliates start promoting it. This means that there’s an incredible amount of buzz, which leads to recognition, and sales.
Choose a product which is coming out soon, and make plans to promote it. Learn everything you can about it. Affiliate program managers usually make lots of material available — they’ll give you creative material like banner ads, as well as copy for sales pages. This gives you a great head start in promoting the product.
Choosing a great affiliate product to promote starts with YOU. What do you love, which you could tell others about?
