Step 3: Research Different Affiliate Platforms
Research several affiliate platforms to find the one(s) you will use in your affiliate marketing efforts and to find the products you will promote.
Three main affiliate platforms are:
All three platforms offer different products from different categories; JVZoo offers digital products, ClickBank offers digital and physical products, ShareASale offers physical products.
All three platforms require registration before use and promotion:
- JVZoo and ClickBank only require one registration to be both a product vendor and an affiliate
- ShareASale has two separate registrations for product vendors and affiliates.
Step 4: Find Quality Products That Match Your Niche
Use the drop-down menus in each platform to narrow down the category and subcategory that matches or closely matches your preferred niche.
Consider various stats such as commission amount or percentage, popularity, avg $/sale, initial $/sale, avg %/sale, avg rebill total, avg %/rebill, and gravity to find the best product or products for you to promote and profit from.
Apply the various filters available to find the perfect offer(s) on each platform to promote.
Step 5: Only Add Useful Content To Your Site
There are three main types of content to provide on your site/blog to convince people that an offer is worth their purchase through your link:
- Product reviews
Use a combination of text, audio, and photos/videos to show people what a product offer is like and why they should purchase it.
The Best Places To Put Your Affiliate Links
Placing your affiliate link inside of your product review is a good way to get people to use your link to purchase.
Depending on the size of the review, you can use your affiliate link between 1-3 times, with it definitely going at the end of the review at least.
Utilize banner ads and sidebars on your blog to promote relevant affiliate offers, as this will get your visitors’ attention and entice them to click on them, activating your affiliate links.
