Have you ever wondered why some products you see in your inbox are successful while others never really make it? Have you ever questioned why you have a hard time getting some of the online business opportunities and affiliate offers you promote to convert into sales?
What makes a successful product?
It isn’t an easy question to answer. Although, most successful products do have things in common that drive growth and give them great results.
First and perhaps most importantly, a successful affiliate marketing offer solves a current problem or creates need or desire. Prospects and buyers should feel like they have to take action to get the benefits of the offer! Right now!
Secondly, the affiliate marketing offer lays out really clearly the purpose of the product and it’s real world value. Making it relatable to the problems that pop up in everyday life. Problems with health, with money or with happiness. It must be so clear that customers start to imagine the benefits for them in their own situation. Engage the customers imagination and your half way there.
Online marketers risk their own cash to drive qualified traffic to an affiliate marketing offer. They do this in the the hope that it converts and return a profit.
What if it’s my own product?
If it’s your own product, there needs to be enough margin to be able to run your business. New product creation, advertising and profit all need to be considered when you make your business plan.
There are lots of products out there, so the pressure is on the product owner to grab enough attention. It must also have the quality and value needed to compete in that niche.
The sales funnel is a vital piece of the puzzle
A great sales funnel is vital as it takes way some of the hard work out of selling. It also gives a consistent message that you can test and tweak. When you are happy with your sales funnel you can start to scale up, confident in the knowledge that results start to will follow.
Company provided sales funnels are usually terrible and don’t showcase the thing that made YOU join the business.
Creating a sales funnel
If this is the case you need to create your own Lead Capture Pages or Sales Pages to get more bang for your marketing buck…
I have done this many times in the past using PLS to create a lead capture page and bridging page which then leads to the sign up page for the program or opportunity I am selling.
If you are interested in being an affiliate marketer and are looking for somewhere simple to start then this is somewhere I would recommend for you to check out.
Lead capture pages and sales pages are already set up for you and they convert. You make $6 for each of the $7 products that you sell (and there are upsells after the original product). Payouts are weekly and in the years that I have been involved a payment has never been missed.
I have been very fortunate to build an online income over the past few years, if this is something you’d like to do too you can see here exactly how I make money from this blog.
