Many affiliates, particularly those ho are just starting out make very little using affiliate programs. One reason for this is a poor choice of products. Some products sell better than others. In fact, some affiliate products sell just 4 or 5 units per month, Total. If you are selling one of these products, it will be almost impossible for you to make money.
To maximize your money-making opportunities, choose the affiliate products that you are going to promote carefully. If you are selling clickbank products, visit their Product Marketplace. Products can be sorted by several different methods.
I like to sell products that have a high ?Gravity.? This indicates that there are many affiliates actively selling the product. The higher the gravity score, the more affiliates there are selling the product. This tells me that the product is in demand and is selling well. An added benefit of using products with high gravity is the fact that these products are getting a lot of ?buzz? on The Internet and in the forums. This means that a lot of people are talking about it. This ?buzz? represents free advertising and there is a good likelihood that I can sell the product.
However, there is a downside to selling high gravity products. High gravity also means lots of competition. To be successful with these types of products, you have to market aggressively. If you write articles, for example, submit at least three articles per day using links to the product. Place ads on your website or blog. Visit he forums and include links to your re-direct page. (Never place your affiliate link directly in the forums; people will replace your ID with their own and steal your commission.) Use advertising and be sure to email your list about the opportunity. Use all of these techniques (and more if you can) and you will sell affiliate products.
