How to Start an Internet Business with NO Product, NO Experience and NO Money. Step #6
Okay by now you should have some idea on what your niche is going to be and what type of product you’re going to promote.
Remember that it should be something you have an interest in, feel comfortable talking about and it is something people are going to want to buy. Remember what we talked about regarding Latvian Basket weaving.
There are two ways to approach this. The first way is to promote a product you already have. The second is to select a product from clickbank or Warrior plus and market them.
www.clickbank.com specializes in digital downloads. There is a ton of great products that you can promote with 50% or better commissions, and there are many that, if properly promoted, can make you A LOT OF MONEY very fast. (i.e. the grill man I told you about in a previous post). There is an amazing video that walks you through the process step by step but that’s still a bit down the road.
The main danger of affiliate marketing is taking on too much too fast. We’ll get to it I promise but not until you have a stronger knowledge base.
The other place you should check out is the warriorforum.com They also have products you can market but the advantage here is that, as a forum, you fellow affiliates will often rate a product and will warn you off if it’s a dud.
So give it a look here http://www.warriorforum.com/ Then scroll down, see what they have to offer, check out some of the forums and get a feel for the group. If you chose to market their affiliate products it will cost you a one time fee of $10 It used to be free but some idiots thought it would be funny to post products that didn’t exist, ergo the $10 fee had to be created to keep the nit-wits at bay. Once paid you can click on affiliates and see what they got available to market and what the other affiliates think about the product. They even have a product of the week that is getting the most conversions (sales)
Time is very valuable in affiliate marketing and you don’t want to waste it.
In the Marketing Method I sent you, there is a video that instructs you how to write ads and articles for products. The step by step tutorial for www.usfreeads.com does a terrific job of explaining how it’s done.
I have a product of my own that I’m selling on Amazon so I decided to take usfreeads.com out for a spin and write my own ad.
Here’s the link http://www.usfreeads.com/3377164-cls.html
I also wrote an article for goarticles.com that permits me to do my thing while still promoting my product. Here’s the link http://GoArticles.com/article/7624716
The process for doing both was very easy and won’t take much time once you get the hang of it.
If, like me, you have a product of your own to sell, your best bet to get the highest amount of readers is to publish an article on www.ezine.com . They have more readers than any of the others but they also have very strict rules. You cannot put an affiliate link anywhere on ezine. But if you have a product of your own, you can list that link in the Resource Box. Ezine is a great way to get traction for your products.
So give www.usfreeads.com and www.goarticles.com a test run. Then send the link to your friends and to me if you’d like at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can do to punch it up.
I’ll give a breakdown on how to promote a product from clickbank tomorrow, so bookmark this site and sign up for my newsletter at the top right. When I come across something spectacular I immediately inform the people who get my newsletter, so if you want to be the first to find out about a hot selling new product, or a new heavy traffic generator it would be a good idea to get on that list.
See you tomorrow.
