Affiliate marketing is not exactly a type of a rocket science, but it is a simple recipe, all you need to do is follow a couple of easy and simple steps just like in a recipe. However, just like you feel the necessity of using the proper ingredients and components as well as following and going according to a certain group of systematic steps

 

is not rocket science, it’s simply a recipe. But like in all recipes you need to use the right ingredients and follow the instruction.

 

When it comes to affiliate marketing the primary ingredient is the product or service you want to sell. Your website development and all you marketing efforts will be built around this product. So, it’s essential that you take the time to select it wisely.

 

You just have to do a simple search only to discover that there are thousands of products or service you can choose from. Variety is good thing when the products you want to promote are of equal quality. But it can become very confusing when a lot of the products offer no real benefits to your potential customer.

 

So, to identify a winning product, the secret is to analyze it, and look for the following:

 

1- Make sure the site is well organized and easy to navigate. Potential customers will only remain on a site for 30 seconds before they move to another one. This means that if the site doesn’t grab the attention is the first few seconds, the customer will walk away.

 

2- How many steps are there before customer are taken to the order now process. The idea is to make sure it will be easy for anyone to place an order.

 

3- Does the product you’re about to promote offers a strong money back-guarantee. This point alone is a must to build the confidence of any potential customer.

 

4- Do they offer you affiliates tools or tips to help you promote the product. I personally like to work with companies that offer tools to help me going. If they have tools in place it means they are serious about helping their affiliates succeed.

 

Taking the time to research and analyze products properly, will make your selling job much more easier.
