The Best Beginners Guide To Affiliate Marketing [Part 3]

Updated on May 9, 2014

The first products website is okay, it is nothing special but I would buy from the website and everything is loading well, it has insight and understanding. It has a title bar that has testimonies, company info and lots of other info.

The second one is terrible. The website layout is dreadful, there is little or no information. All the things that this website is trying to put out is rubbish and I know I expect to be disappointed if I buy this.

The product the website is offering, could be amazing! The website is not. The Insight is not.. No sale and no affiliate!

Selecting a product to promote

Another approach is to pinpoint key factors in your knowledge, so for me it was blushing. For a wider search (because people do list their products under different categories) let’s just set everything back to the default setting on the search i.e. category: all categories & sub categories: all sub categories: and do another search for the pinpoint word: blushing.

Now we have four options - the two we found before and two others that must have been put under a different section. At the moment the four products are not listed in any specific order (the ones we found before are in positions 2 & 4).

Upon clicking on the top product I really like what I see, the website looks good, the format of the page is one that is very, very common with click bank products but it is looking good. Lots of this sellers’ personal stories which I can relate to and believable testimonies. This product is an audio book which could work well, as long as the person speaking does not have a bad voice and the quality is good. It offers an instant download after paying, and an eight week return policy (all click bank products have this anyway). It is only charging $27. I think we have a winner! The website looks good, the stories told convince me, the testimonies are alright and the price is fair. It is aimed at men, which cuts buyers in half, but I still think this would sell well. I would buy this product, so, I would promote this product now.

The chosen product to promote

The final product to look at on that search page, is also quite good in the ways the last one I mentioned is, but this website does not look as sleek and professional as the last one. This product is aimed at women and is going for the same price. I do not feel I could approach this product well as I am not female.

So the selected product is the audio book that will help you stop bushing.

Another thing which we will look at now, is the meaning behind the stats. that can be found at the bottom of the product summary:

$/sale: $11.91 - This shows how much you would make from a sale of this product. You will make $11.91 for each sale.

Future $: n/a - This shows how much money you will make in the future, this will only be relevant for subscription-based products (members-only areas or online magazines).

Total $/sale: $11.91 - This shows the total amount of the sale, including anything that might be added to the on top of the $/sale normally just Future $.

%/sale: 50.0% - This show the percentage of the sale price that you will receive.

%refd: 34.0% - The percent of sales that are pushed by affiliates, e.g. if it is 34% then 66% of the sales are pushed by the vendor (no affiliate) and 34% are pushed by the affiliates.

Grav: 8.45 - This can be a little confusing, many people say different things. But, this shows how many affiliates are successful at selling this product.
