Selecting Info Products – Top 10 Tips for Best Results

Affiliate products are a great way to making money fast from network marketing business.   However, most affiliate marketers do face problems while selecting a niche.  It could be various different reason for everyone to gets stuck here.

  • Too many niches to select from
  • Inadequate information for a search system to select a product.
  • Hard to select a product that has your passion and makes good money.
  • Competitive environment in some business niches.
  • Fear of success or failure set in the mental attitude.
  • Confused state of mind to confidently see the unseen.
  • Scared of the hard work ahead.
  • Risk of failure.

Come Over The Difficult Situation With Search Formula

Come over these problems with a successful perspective and move on to follow a system to search all the niches that interests you one by one and  select the ones that gives you the most total revenues.  Base your decision on the scientific results of the search formula.  What you see is facts based on real results and you can not go wrong, if you followed it properly step by step.

What ever you do avoid some of these very common major mistakes while deciding a niche for yourself and use top positive strategies for achieving best results.

1.  Pay attention to your passion and demand of the product

Though it is a debatable point but it is suggested to pick up products that interest you the most for a higher success.  Though common sense tell you to pick a niche that has the most demand.  So pay attention to both aspects, research and plan.

2.  Test The Product

Test your niche product yourself.  99% of the online marketers do not test the product and plunge with full preparation into business which does not produce as much in the long run as their set goals.  This requires an entire process which involves a strategy, planning, working hard and tracking results.

3.  Not doing a proper search

Not having an effective keyword research will stop you from finding out which are the most profitable markets and products for a profitable business.  Besides a variety of keywords tools also take into consideration the search engines, which help you with your affiliate marketing niche.

Some of the most important factors for the most effective keyword research are:

  • creating an effective list and double checking it.
  • using more resources to find specific keywords to add to your list.
  • Finalizing the list by adding all the keywords
  • Selecting the related keywords and do more searches to find the final results

This is a slow and time consuming process but it has to be done. An effective keyword search is extremely important. It involves steps and the first one is to come up with specific keywords by using the method of brainstorming whatever word or phrase you believe a customer might  use when trying to search for you.

Secondly, try to come up with enough words to include the variety of related products and services you are offering in order for you to do this, include your friends in this search too, so you may get more results.

Many entrepreneur think it is god idea not to promote those affiliate products that are lacking demand by ignoring the competition and the market research for testing the product’s efficiency are things you should fear.  Others who like a challenge will promote the product that no one is
Searching for.  So they may promote it and win market monopoly.  They can do this for a long time by exploring this new niche in detail, adding more and more narrower niches and selling it with promotional advertising.

4.  Promoting too few products

It is important to know that you must offer your customer alternatives and buying options.  It is true at first you must focus on only one product that suits you best and promote it as good as you can, but if you are selling only one or two products forever, one might think that you are forcing them into buying those specific, products and feel the urge to leave your site.

However, offer them enough space and they will have the feeling that it is them who are in control of the purchase, and you will get tremendous sales growth.  Moreover, if you have a larger variety of products to sell you will consequently increase larger sales.  But do not over do by promoting a lot of products.

5.  Promoting too many products

New affiliates want to promote as many products as possible, thinking that the more profit they will bring.  But it is not the reality.  The amount of time that you are devoting to each product decreases and so the promotional effort get a set back.  Your potential to sell each product goes down.  Moderation is the secret key.

Also customers, get confused by the buying number of choices they start taking you as a person who will do everything for money and the quality product conception will reduce.

Two of these basic reason will bring a great difference in the total sales.  So promoting too few products is a mistake and so is promoting too many products.  Thus you must find the balance between these two.

6.  Focus on the affiliate product and not the affiliate program

It is vitally important to market the product and the program both.  Don’t even for a second forget about the real product you are selling,  You will  have to face some competition with other well-performing affiliates.  You need to stay competitive but be generous to share your information and make use of the necessary resources such as links and blogs with other affiliates to generate sales not only by yourself, but together with your networking group.  Add something new and better than your competitors on your site so, a buyer who visits few sites to buy a product buys from you as you will have new and better content about the benefits of the product.

7.  Failing to invest in viable means of advertising

Pay attention to the response of your target market and you will definitely be able to tell which specific form of advertising is more appropriate for affiliate marketing.  Think about your target group and their marketing trends you should take a few steps to invest in well made banners emails and links.  Advertisement of yours is informative confer your company/s credibility.  This will eventually lead to increased sales from satisfied customers.

8.  Ignoring the search engine Optimization Process

Make sure your contents are full of benefits and fluff free.  A SEO site gives you better visibility and if you apply the SEO techniques properly, you will have a more valuable affiliate website, with higher chances of attracting customers.

9.  Failing to keep up with the latest news and trends in the industry

It is a common knowledge that we live in a world where change is the key Process. This also applies to the field of the internet marketing.  So be aware of the competition, and being updated with the latest news is essential if you want to be successful.

10.  It is unprofessional not to remain in touch of the latest

So be a part of the forums, membership sites or chat rooms.  Experience exchange is a great asset you will get to know situations and their results with this social interaction. Open your mind to consider new trends that can change your cool status to a higher position.

    Awesome post Fran,
    I agree with your points man. Yeah, you are right.

    Learn to follow your passion and before releasing any product make sure you’ve tested it and see if it works before dishing it out. if you are able to do this, you will win big. It’s not until you focus on too many products before you can win big. all you need to do is just to plan and work smart. Thanks so much.

Just a general blog to talk to people, write 200 word article and discuss things. If you are studying , you can talk about education, if you are married you can talk about family life children. There is so much to do on the internet.

    Some very useful tips for starting out with affiliate marketing. so far I have not stepped into this area but plan to in the near future.

    Thanks for such an informative post Fran. Much appreciated.

    Hi Fran, I think this affiliate marketing is almost alchemy. With so many products out there and so many people who are trying to get rich through affiliate products, it is very hard to stand out of the crowd and star making real money.

    I think the point you mentioned are very solid I agree that if you personally not believe in the product you are promoting (or you did not bother to try it yourself) how dare you ask other to buy it?

    I think the very important part of affiliate marketing is your personal brand, if you are known as an expert in the industry, people will take your suggestions to buy a product more seriously and they will believe that this product is worthy to spend money on.

    1. Fran Aslam

      Hi Adam:

      I am taking too much of your time. For affiliate marketing, you need to start a list, In one niche and work on it extremely hard to create credibility, then select a product from the same niche that this market will buy. Imagine when you are getting ready to sell your product and you know that your list will buy the product right away. You are ready for success mentally and you have prepared for it, now expect some sales. Present your product to the whole world and everyone will buy, but your list will give it a boost. Your list believes in you.
      I hope you did not mind that I took so much of your time.

      To your success.

      Thanks for coming to my site and writing a comment. Yes testing is one of those things that we all do not do for products, it does take a lot of effort. But like Murray is doing starting with three products at one time, she can easily drop one if it does not work. that is the best way.
      It is great to adopt the best techniques.

    Fran you have some really great tips. Particularly the first couple. there is definitely a balance that needs to go on.

    There needs to be passion to write about a topic and be long term successful, but there also needs to be a marketable aspect and research to make sure that it is not not too overwhelming of a niche competition wise.

    A little bit of planning and forethought will save a lot of agony in the long run.

      Hi Richard:

      Thanks for visiting my site and reading my post. Your observation is exactly to the point. There are two basic reasons for all of us to do the least research 1. we believe that our intution that this niche is in demand is very real. 2. It is a lot of hassle to test and research and research and test, as time and motivation to start does not let us do that. But we have to over come it specially if we are starting, as failure leaves its scars behind and to avoid it is the best. But then again, this is my feeling about it.

    Hi Fran,

    Solid advices! Affiliate products are a complicated theme but with a good implementation can be a good income.

    Respect to the point 1, I saw 2 schools. Most demanded can be interesting but at the same time more people will be offering the same product.

    Less interest can be little demand but less competition, so I think is like keyword-research the most demanded but not with the market saturated.

    Hi Fran

    Great advice, having created a new site dedicated to health and fitness, I can certainly vouch for the idea of going with a niche that you have an interest in, the knowledge can come as part of your journey but creating content must be enjoyable otherwise you will end up hating the process, no matter how much money you are making from the niche.

    Also don’t forget to take stock of what is already working and see if you can build on this, no point trying to become a success in an area that is at odds with the success you have already had.

    Hi Fran,
    It has been a while since I last visited… glad I got here so much excellent information.

    There is a lot said about keyword research and sometimes I wonder if too much importance is placed on it…

    The way I look at it there is very little chance of competing in the search engines with the big guys …therfore the only reason I check keywords is to see if there is a market for it… I will them check to make sure people are buying in that market.

    Have a great Christmas & New Year.

  28. mark@keyword analysis tool

    Hi Fran,

    I believe (and it looks like I am not the only one) that #2 (testing the product) is likely to be the single most important part of this, with #6 (promote the product, not the affiliate program) being next. If you test a product and don’t love it, why would you want to sell it to someone else?

    If a product is really that good, and you promote it properly, then you will make money and you won’t feel guilty about it later.

    That is the way that I look at it, anyway. :)

    Have a nice day.

    Awesome post Fran,I agree with your points man. Yeah, you are right.Learn to follow your passion and before releasing any product make sure you’ve tested it and see if it works before dishing it out. if you are able to do this, you will win big. It’s not until you focus on too many products
