There are two different ways you can make money from affiliate marketing. You can promote and sell digital products, physical products, or both.
Digital products include eBooks, video courses and membership websites that can be used online or downloaded directly by the customer.Physical products are delivered to the customer’s front door. For example, many people choose to promote items from Amazon to receive a commission. There are also many other retailers that will share a commission with you if you promote their products.
Does Affiliate Marketing Work?
The key to making money as an affiliate is to find a product that is in high demand, pays you a good commission and is backed by a company that takes care of their customers. That means finding the perfect affiliate products to promote. There are many networks and businesses that you can use to make money as an affiliate. These include ClickBank, Amazon Associates, CJ Affiliate by Conversant, AvantLink and ShareASale.
How Much Money Can You Make?
There are affiliate marketers who make thousands of dollars per month and more. This is a business that rewards effort. The more time, effort and resources you put into your affiliate marketing business, the better your likelihood of generating a sizeable income.
You can make money from affiliate marketing in just about every niche. Both digital and tangible products have unlimited income potential. However, you won’t have a massive volume of sales on your first day in affiliate marketing. Just like any business, it takes time to grow a volume of sales that gives you a large income.
What Products Sell The Best?
In the ClickBank marketplace you’ll see that all the products have a ‘gravity’ score. Products with higher gravity scores sell better than similar products with lower scores. So, for example, if you’re looking at two similar products to promote and one has a gravity of 70 and the other has a gravity score of 30, go with the product with the higher score.
If you’re selling products via Amazon, look for products that have lots of reviews and a 4-star customer satisfaction rating or higher. Affiliate marketing companies will show which of their products sell the best, as well as those with the highest commission rates.
You can choose the best digital or physical products to promote and you can increase your earnings potential. As long as you promote quality products that will impact your consumers positively you can make money from affiliate marketing.
