This is literally the most Important Step in affiliate marketing. Finding the right products to market can be very decisive in your affiliate marketing career, If you get it wrong, you will certainly fail in this business.
You will have to accurately choose a product which will help and solve your audience’s problems.
If you have a Weight Loss Blog, then promoting a forex product will be completely useless as it will not get you any sales.
Moreover, If you promote a low quality product (lets say, on your blog) , you could be hurting your brand as well because most of your audience will click on them and having trusted your blog, will go on and buy it. If unfortunately the product is a real junk, then you will bear the blame. Just have it in mind that that particular person and all others they might have connection to and those that will encounter same problems on your site or blog will go and never come back.
Always have it as a watchword, to promote the best products. Always promote a product that you have tried yourself or one that you are very confident of its quality. Also make sure to promote products that are related to what you are blogging about.
Below are some of the tips that will help you find a related Affiliate Products:
Browse Affiliate Networks – The easiest way to get started with promoting products is to search though Affiliate Networks. An Affiliate Network act as an intermediary between publishers (affiliates) and merchant affiliate programs. There are a few affiliate networks that list many affiliate programs. You can use their search option to get related products to your blog’s niche. Some of the most famous Affiliate networks are : ClickBank (This is my favourite and also, the first affiliate commission that I earned was by promoting a clickbank product) , Commission Junction (aka CJ), ShareaSale etc.
Search Google – Another way to find relevant affiliate product that you can promote is by doing a simple google search. Just type: “your keyword + Affiliate Program” (Replace “your Keyword” with your niche like “Weight Loss Affiliate Programs”) and you will easily find the appropriate product.
Checkout Online Stores – Almost all of the famous online stores (like Amazon, Ebay) have affiliate programs. You can just sign up for that and then promote any of the stuff that is listed there. Generally the commissions are not big here but as these online stores have a huge range of products, it is not that difficult to get referral sales through them.
Check Your Competition – If you can’t find the products by above methods, you can simply have a look at what your competitors (sites in your niche) are promoting and you can start promoting those products.
Now, these were the ways by which you can select a product to promote.
