Getting the Best Affiliate Revenue

One question in all new affiliate marketers minds is how do we go about getting the best affiliate revenue? This is because Amazon and the other larger affiliate sites pay a desultory 4% at least initially and to get more you need at least 7 sales a month. |This may not seem too difficult when put like that, but consider that over 90% of affiliate marketers have not made one sale at the end of their first year!

OK so now lets get real where can you find the better paying items? Well that is easy to answer, the rates of commission offered at ClickBank and Commission Junction are much higher. Pay rates can be as much as 30% or more of the price of the product, especially in the case of information products where rates can go as high as 75% and sometimes even up to 100%.

Surely there has to be a catch? Well yes and no, the price of a product does not make it harder to sell, it is the size of the pool of buyers and the relative competition that affect the ease of making the sale. So logically this means that it is better for us to make fewer sales of a high priced but relatively in demand product than many sales of a low priced in demand product in a heavily serviced market place.

This is where it is important to do our market analysis before we put too much effort into a market without sufficient demand. Tools such as Market Samurai can help in analysis of the market before we waste out efforts. Assuming we have a market with demand we should choose a product with a high rate of return over a lower one as we need to make less sales to make the same amount of money.

You may think it would be easier to sell a cheap product with a low return to you, rather than an expensive one with a high return, but in fact this is not the case. Each sale will take approximately the same amount of effort. Why? because it is the back links and bookmarks and SEO that we have done that drive the traffic, and if we have chosen our keywords well we have a buying pool of visitors and we will need approximately the same number of visits for each sale, regardless of the price.

Which sale will make us more money? It is obvious the higher priced one with the higher rate of return! The only hard part to all of this is finding the niche in the first place but there are members only clubs that can help us learn all of this, and more they will even provide us with all the tools we need to market in a selective and professional way. So you really should be a member of such a club, and ensuring that you too will be getting the best affiliate revenue possible.

Can you recommend How to select what kind of product to sell

Andre`, The best products to sell are the most popular ones, as the market place is larger for them. However it is better to go after items that really excite you as you will find it easier to engage your public. Try typing most popular searches into Google and then scroll down the results until you find a topic or item that you would be able to promote. You will know that it is being searched for and that getting traffic will be easy. You still have to search engine optimise on your keywords, but you should be able to get a few Sales. This method is transient as the current pop items change, but it works!

Glad you liked the Article Mike, I found this concept of using the higher priced and higher returns a bit frightening at first, but of course once you get the hang of the process it is by far the fastest way to that reasonable return. Hope this helps a lot of the beginners!

Great article, some really good info in here, and I am currently working clicbank since because of the state I am stationed at right now does not allow me to become an amazon affiliate.
