Selecting Your Main Affiliate products
Your main affiliate product is very very important because it’s the main product that you’ll be promoting to your Email list or facebook or website visitors. When you choose your main product, you must make sure it meets these conditions:
- Low Prices ($10-$30 if it’s a single one time purchase and $5-20 if it’s recurring payments)
- Highly Related To Your Niche ( whichever niche you decide to promote or select )
- It Should Be As General As Possible.( so that everybody can relate to it )
- It’s a Continuing Program or product or membership (recurring, so you get monthly commissions)
Picking Your Other products and affiliates (which ate related to your main products)
Once you’ve finalised which products you are going to use for your main affiliate offer, you need to find 2-4 more additional related offers. Here’s what i recommend:
– 3 Low Ticket Offers ($10-$100) ( means lower priced products)
– 1 High Ticket Offer ($100-$500) ( means high priced product)
Just pick 2-4 offers that you think are good and meet above conditions. You can search for offers on Clickbank, JVZoo, WSOs…etc to find the best matching products
