Updated on December 2, 2013

5 Simple Questions To Determine Whether a Product Is Worth Promoting Or Not

If you want to successfully promote your affiliate product and make real money doing affiliate marketing, you have to promote a product that is highly converting. This is very important, especially if you are using PPC advertising campaign for your promotion. Promoting the wrong product can lead you to lose a big amount of money later. So, you have to choose the right product that is worth promoting. Choose carefully from the start, because it will determine your success later. Here are 5 simple questions that determine whether that product is worth promoting or not:

1. Did The Sales Page Convince You To Buy?

The first question that you need to ask is about the product sales page. You have to read the sales page from top to bottom and determine whether the sales page convinces you to buy or not. Position yourself in the minds of those who need the product the most. Play as the target audience of the product and read the sales page objectively. If you feel convinced to buy the product, then you can assume that the people who are reading the sales page will also feel the same. So, once it is determined that the product is worthy to promote, you can flip to the next question.

2. Did The Product Offer High Commission?

It’s all about money after all, and how you will earn from the product. Most information products offer as much as 75% commission, and you have to ensure that you get the highest cut for the effort that you make. Don’t settle for products that only offer 25% commission for you. It doesn’t worth your attention at all, because generally the merchant is not giving high regard toward its affiliates. Make sure that the product offers high commission before you go to the next question.

3. Did The Product Sell Like Crazy?

In other words, you have to make sure that the product is popular enough within the niche. Also, you need to make sure that the product sells like crazy. In this way, you will not have much difficulty to promote this product. Beware of promoting products that don’t sell well. It will only bring you burden in your promotion. Convincing people to buy the product will be very difficult. Promote only hot selling products so that you can promote it as easily as possible.

4. Did You Find Strong Social Proof In The Product Sales Page?

You have to take a look at the sales page again and see whether the product sales page has strong social proof or testimonials. Make sure that the testimonials are not fake. There are lots of product sellers that are using fake testimonials in order to trick their audience into buying the product. This will not bring that product more conversion. That’s why you need to only promote products that have honest testimonials that can really move people’s mind into buying the product naturally.

5. Did You Find The Sales Page Design Visually Appealing?

The last thing that you need to examine is the sales page design. Remember that the old style sales page will no longer give the best conversion for most sales pages today. Avoid promoting products that use old style sales page design. Look at those products who are using the latest web technology for their sales page. It will appeal more to their audience and it will definitely bring more conversion for those products.

Those are 5 simple questions that determine whether that product is worth promoting or not. Remember that you have to ask those questions before choosing the right product to promote in your affiliate marketing campaign. It will affect your success in your promotion later.

5 Reasons Why Writing Product Review Is The Best Way To Promote Your Affiliate Product

Most affiliates are struggling to make sales in promoting their affiliate products. Do you know why? Most of the time, the problem lies in their landing page. Their landing page is not converting enough for the audience. Most people will only buy your affiliate product if you can convince your audience into buying the product in your landing page. If your landing page cannot do the job well, then you will have very poor sales. The best way to boost your landing page conversion is by writing product review. In fact, writing product review is the best way to promote your affiliate product. Why? Here are 5 reasons why writing product review is the best way to promote your affiliate product:

1. You Are Directly Targeting The Potential Buyers

By writing product review, you are directly targeting the people who really want to buy that product. People who read your product review will usually have strong desire to buy the product, but they are still in the phase where they need to make decision whether they want to buy the product or not. Contrast this with writing a mere landing page that only motivates your audience without mentioning the product much. In this type of landing page, your targeted audience doesn’t have specific desire to buy any product. They just want to know about the solution for their problem.

2. It Gives Your Audience The Glimpse About The Product

You can show how the product is going to benefit your audience by writing a review about it. You can even show your audience about how to use the product for their own benefit. You can also point out the flaws of the product in your review. The possibility is endless. But, the more you talk about the product, the more your audience wants to buy it. It is the best strategy for your affiliate promotion.

3. It Will Bring Maximum Conversion For Your Landing Page

Writing 30 product reviews will give you more sales than writing 30 pages of informative content. Why? That’s because you are shooting straight into the money. People want to buy products, and if you can show them about the product that they want to buy and tell them that it is a good product, then you will definitely make sales. That’s why many affiliates can make lots of sales just by writing product reviews alone.

4. You Can Easily Direct People’s Decision

When you write a usual landing page that doesn’t include any product review, you will sometimes have difficulty in motivating your audience into buying the product. You will also risk yourself for looking like a salesperson who desperately wants to make sale out of the product. By writing product review in your affiliate promotion, you are positioning yourself as a regular customer who tells other potential customers about the product. It will help you to easily direct people’s decision toward buying the product.

5. It Is A Great Strategy To Tackle Doubts And Hesitation About The Product

People will generally want to know whether buying certain product is good for them or not. By writing product review, you can tackle their doubts and hesitations regarding the product, which will help them to make decision faster. They just need encouragement and justification for their buying decision. So, when they see your review and you can tackle all the doubts and hesitations about the product, you will be able to make sales very easily.

Those are 5 reasons why writing product review is the best way to promote your affiliate product. Have you tried it? If not, you should try it today. It can revolutionize how you do your affiliate marketing campaign and bring even more sales for your promotion.

However, make sure that the review copy is only available for those members who have strong reputation. In this way, you will be able to weed out the freeloaders that will only take advantage of your offer. Also, you need to limit the review copy to no more than 10.

4. Use Their Feedbacks As Testimonials

Once you get some high quality feedbacks from those forum members, you will use their feedbacks as testimonials. This is important to put a strong social proof in your product landing page. You can’t fake your product testimonials, so this is the best way to go. When you use those feedbacks as testimonials, you will be able to boost your conversion rate significantly.

5. Create A Good Product Launch Strategy

Once everything is ready, you can create a good product launch strategy for your dating and relationship product. Of course, your base audience should be the members of those forums as well. You just need to create a forum signature that tells them you’re about to launch your product. Also, give free stuff and other discounts for the early bird buyers. Collect their name and email address. In this way, when it’s the time for you to launch your product, you can bring lots of traffic to your landing page, which will convert into sales easily. Also, it will give good foundation for your further promotion.

Those are 5 best tips to market your dating and relationship products.

      Hi Nice Hub. It might also be mentioned that the best thing to do is buy a unique URL for your landing page, which involves some keyword research, because you want keywords in your URL that have low competition, yet a decent amount of traffic, but not so much traffic that your page gets buried in Google.
