Whether you keep things simple or aim for the stars is up to you, but I highly recommend you follow the advice on this site and try selling real products that have broad appeal and massive prices as well as the traditional digital eBooks and courses.
The classic process for selling affiliate products is simple:
- Find a digital product and get an affiliate link
- Create a sales page
- Place a link on the sales page
- Send traffic to sales page both from your own website, andthrough marketing
- Wait until the product stops selling, then rinse and repeat
I am recommending that you slightly alter this model, to earn more money and build a more resilient, long-term business model.
Here’s the new strategy:
- Create a website and build an audience that trusts you and enjoys what you do
- Do this by generating genuinely unique and passionate content with a strong visual brand and missions statement
- Find a few big-ticket affiliate products and services and create sales pages for those, then “launch” them from your site by using email blasts and teasers to create hype
- Find the products that are most successful and then send more visitors here through paid advertising
- Meanwhile, sell as many smaller digital products, Amazon physical products, and services, through articles and websites that you promote using SEO
Whatever you do, you can now enjoy earning money while you sleep – and the more you experiment, the more efficient your sales technique will become!
