Last week, I made this video on how beginners can start affiliate marketing.
The response was awesome, which I was so excited to see.
On a personal note, affiliate marketing has been huge for me over the years.
The success I’ve seen with my golf site, Breaking Eighty, has been amazing and I’ve been able to check off some serious items off my bucket list over the years, thanks in no small part to the affiliate marketing I’ve been able to do on that site.
So let’s just say, I’m a true believer.
Once I published that video I got a lot of questions in my inbox about the best affiliate products for beginners who are just getting started.
Luckily, I’d already planned to answer that question in another video, so here we are, ta da!
In this video, I break down a couple of the types of products that I’ve seen a lot of success with and think are perfect products for beginners to start with affiliate marketing.
Hint: One of the easiest for beginners is the Amazon affiliate program.
Best Affiliate Programs for Beginners:
Of course, these aren’t the only programs you should think about.
But if you’re just getting started, I think focusing on these types of products are going to help make a big difference in your income.
At the start, it’s all about strategy.
Once you’ve got a steady stream of traffic to your site then it’s a good time to really think about diving into affiliate marketing.
And one way to be strategic is to consider how much you’re going to make on each sale.
Unless you have tons and tons of traffic, selling something that’s $10 isn’t going to make that much of a dent — you’re only going to get a buck or two (if that).
But, if you’re selling a product that costs $500 and you get 10-20% commissions that starts to add up.
Now, add in products that offer recurring revenue, things like software that charge people every month, then you’ve got another way to consistently make money.
Take it to another level with high quality and expensive info products, and you can start approaching four figures a month in sales.
Not too shabby, right?
I dig into this a lot more in the video and get specific with examples, so check that out.
