DIRECTIONS: Find a good and reliable web merchant who offers products you are impressed with. Remember, you cannot sell, or re-sell to be more exact, a product you don’t believe in. You also have to consider if said goods are sellable. You could determine this by conducting some research on target market. Here’s a tip though: anything is marketable on web, if you have time, patience, and willingness to seek out potential customers.
Once you have chosen a web merchant, you have to study terms of affiliate program he offers. Important things to consider are modes of payment and commission percentage. Make sure that web merchant would be able to pay you through payment method you have availed of. The commission scheme must likewise be favorable to you. Here’s another tip: for sales, do not settle for less than 20% commission.
If all is to your satisfaction, sign up.
You will then be given a link that, when clicked pursuant to a sale or a hit, would inform your web merchant’s system that you are eligible for a commission. Do not lose this link, as it would be your bread and butter for affiliate programs.
Now, all you have to do is to strategically place this link on your website. Additionally, you must make a sales pitch to your visitors so that they’ll consider clicking on said link. This can be done by discussing something noteworthy, say for example, a how-to guide on recovering lost data, and in body of your article, you could suggest your readers to try a certain product like a backup system, whose link is provided therein. Also, you could make a sales page, which is basically a page dedicated to product you’re trying to resell, and which can be accessed from your site.
As an added option, you could also make your own e-book and distribute it for free. The e-book itself should tackle something important, but should contain suggestions about use of product you’re reselling, with appropriate link that would garner for you your commission. Also, you could join online forums that are dedicated to market that product would be perfect for. Include your link in your signature. This would expose it to people who would view threads you participated in.
