Now that you have decided that Affiliate Marketing is the way forward to earn an income online and you have worked out what market you will focus your efforts on its time to find some affiliate products to sell.
Good old Google
Well one of the most obvious ways to find affiliate products is to use Google. Type into the search box words that correlate with your chosen market. For example, if you are focusing on a sport such as golf then type in “golf affiliate programs” or if you want to be more specific you could put “UK golf affiliate programs”
Then from the search results simply go through what has been presented and find appropriate products to promote. I would do a bit of research first before signing up to the affiliate program just to make sure that the products are worth promoting.
If you know of a specific company you would like to promote, perhaps one where you have already used their products or services before and would be comfortable in telling others about them then go to their main company website and see if they have an affiliate program.
Look for a link on their website, this will normally be just the word “Affiliate” and often in quite small text and more often than not hidden right at the bottom on their website although as to where it exactly will be varies from one website to another.
Once you find the link then click on it and sign up to their affiliate program. If there appears to be no link anywhere on their website then as in the first suggestion type into Google “Company name affiliate program” and see what appears. It might be they don’t have an affiliate program at all.
Another excellent way to find affiliate products to promote is by joining an Affiliate Network. These networks will have a large selection of companies in their system that they run affiliate programs for of which you can join and promote. You have to join the network first but once accepted you can then join any of the affiliate programs within that network.
Below is a list of the larger Affiliate Networks worth joining,
- Commission Junction (CJ)
- Affiliate Window
There are plenty of other Affiliate Networks to join and some of them will specialise in particular markets so you may find a network specific to your particular niche.
Well what you do now largely depends on the way you are going to promote your affiliate products. You may be going to promote them by simply posting your affiliate links via social sites or anywhere else that will take your links.
Or you may be putting together a small website that will help you educate your visitors before you ever try to make a sale which is by far the best way to sell affiliate products.
Whatever way you do decide then I have an affiliate course that will show you exactly what to do and when to do it and comes with full support from me.
