How do you choose a product to promote on the internet?
Don’t mean to be a bigger buzz kill than Buzz Killington, but let me first say, if you believe any of the hype on making riches quick, you’re going down the wrong path. If anyone who sold Internet Marketing products or methods and is making money, in most cases will NOT share it->unless that niche has lost it’s revenue potential.
When looking at a company to promote, these are the factors I look for:
- 1- Are they a stable company with a track record?(Always Google and research)
- 2- Do they seem honest(yes, sometimes they don’t pay)?
- 3- Can you contact them and get a relatively quick response?
- 4- Do they pay a decent commission for their product?
- 5- If MLM(Multilevel Marketing), will they mentor you UNTIL you turn a profit?
- 6- Do they let you try new ideas?(counts big with me)
- 7- Can you try the product and like it?
- 8- Are their landing pages decent(product page)?
- 9- Does sales rely on memberships?(this may be a red flag)
- 10- Do they have a good reporting system(impressions, number of clicks, number of sales)?
Many places have good products, and part of your time should be searching for them.
Starting out, you can go to Linkshare, Clickbank, Commission Junction, but there are gems that you can also find that have outstanding products and potential.
Where do you start looking for a type of product? Start with what you know. If I was a cook for the last 7 years, I probably know a lot about cooking products. If you are into gadgets, find electronics products. A stay at home mom is probably a genius at a ton of things including children’s everything, food, etc.
PS: In most cases, if the company offers you a website page for $x amount of dollars, use caution. Many of these sites have duplicate content and Google doesn’t like that at all. Remember, people are not going to know your site name, but will search with keywords(inexpensive cookware, small mp3 players, online home movies). Exceptions may include if you have an exclusive territory or you have an >established< method to drive traffic in.
