3 Powerful Ways to Recognize an Affiliate Opportunity
If you want to be a successful affiliate marketer one of the things that you're going to have to do is be able to recognize opportunity when it knocks. Here are three ways to recognize a solid opportunity.
Get a good commission rate
There are affiliate programs online that pay anywhere from 3% to 100% of the profits. My question to you... Why settle for a tiny piece of the pie when you can get most of it! Always look for products and service that pay 50% or more in commissions. Most of these will be digital products on JVZoo, WarriorPlus and Clickbank. Digital products pay far more than hard goods, since the cost to create is much lower.
The best products and services are the ones that have evolved over time and are proven to work. Make sure you test every product or service before you promote it so you know you are promoting only good stuff! You don't want to let people down or they will not return to buy more from your recommendations.
Stick with products and services in your niche
For example, of you help people in the Internet marketing space, don't promote tee-shirts or health related products. Some exceptions can be if the products come with PLR (Private Lave Rights) so that your subscribers can use them to earn money. Otherwise it is essential that you stick to your niche!
