There are two different ways to make money from affiliate marketing. You can promote and sell digital products, physical products, or both.
Digital products include eBooks, video courses and member sites that can be used online or downloaded directly by the customer. Physical products are delivered to the customer’s door. For example, many people choose to promote items from Amazon to receive a commission. There are also many other retailers who will share a commission with you if you promote your products.
Does affiliate marketing work?
The key to making money as an affiliate is to find a product that is in high demand, pay a good commission and be supported by a company that takes care of its customers. That means finding the perfect affiliate products to promote. There are many networks and companies that you can use to make money as an affiliate. This includes ClickBank, Amazon Associates, CJ Affiliate by Conversant, AvantLink and ShareASale.
How much money can you earn?
There are affiliate marketers who earn thousands of dollars a month and more. This is a business that rewards effort. The more time, effort and resources you devote to your affiliate marketing business, the more likely you are to generate considerable revenue.
You can make money from affiliate marketing in almost every niche. Both digital and tangible products have unlimited revenue potential. However, you will not have a large volume of sales on the first day of affiliate marketing. As with any company, it takes time to grow a sales volume that gives you great revenue.
Which products sell best?
In the ClickBank market, you will see that all products have a ‘severity’ score. Products with a higher severity score sell better than similar products with a lower score. So, for example, if you are looking for two similar products to promote and one has a severity of 70 and the other has a severity of 30, choose the product with the highest score.
If you are selling products through Amazon, look for products that have a lot of reviews and a customer satisfaction rating of 4 stars or higher. Affiliate marketing companies will show you which of their products sell best, as well as those with the highest commission rates.
You can choose the best digital or physical products to promote and increase your earning potential. As long as you promote quality products that will positively impact your consumers, you can make money from affiliate marketing.
