Choosing Products to Promote
In the beginning, only select products that are hot and are really making sales, even if their sales commission is lower.
Greater sales will compensate you. If you are choosing the product just on the basis of high profits and not on the basis
of its demand, then you may suffer.
Another good way is to choose the hot products with less profit and some new products with high profit. Then keep an eye
on your sales. If the new products are giving you the sales, then it is ok. Otherwise remove them and select some other new
product with good sales commission.
If your website has really a good and constant flow of traffic, then pay per click is a very good option for you. Because
you are paid for every click and you are not required to make any sales.
Merchants and Sales Commission
If you are a merchant, then always offer a commission that is both acceptable by your affiliates and you. If you offer
a very low commission, then there are less chances of affiliates' interest in your products and this may reduce your sales.
On the other hand, if you are offering a very high commission it will attract the affiliates, but in the long term you may
suffer. So always try to offer a reasonable commission.
If you are a merchant and are going to introduce a new product to the market, then you can offer some really high commissions
in the start. This may be like 50% of the sale. This will attract the affiliates and you will get a large number of affiliates
in very little time. The affiliates will be highly motivated to make as many sales as they can so that they can earn high
commissions. This will greatly increase your sales. Once your product has become popular and in demand, then you
may reduce the sales commission gradually.
Setting a reasonable commission is an important factor for the merchants to do good business.
Also the affiliate marketers
should select the products that are giving them good profit and are easy
