What is the Best Product to Promote?

By Affiliate Hat On January 21, 2010 7 Comments

In wickedfire, most of the question is about what is the best product to be an affiliate for? What is the best product to promote? The cliche answer/s is either it depends or there’s no best product to promote. So today I’ll explain a bit what it means and why. Let’s now dissect it.

It depends

People normally base it on the per lead tag, epc, and stuffs. For example two years ago, the ringtone market is a hot commodity. Everyone is in there, everyone’s like making money with it. The truth is only few did. While ringtone is a lucrative niche, the problem is its saturated. To be able to get a position in Adwords or YSM you need to shred out a lot of cash since the cpc is absurdly high.

Last year’s flavor is the rebill offers. If you don’t know, rebills are the ones that the customer just need to pay less than $5 for shipping YET they don’t know its a recurring payment. It’s shady but its how it was really designed. Like ringtones, it’s high paying but I doubt a lot of people made huge money with it. Researching, its obvious that the same and the same people are the ones that make the most of it.

So in the end it depends not just on the price per lead or the rising trends, but also on how suitable it is for your budget.

There’s No Best Product

This is true if you ask me. Every time I log in to my Copeac account, I always see the hot offers and stuffs but I rarely promote those. Sometimes you’d be surprised on how some of the offers work, what’s converting and why its converting.

For instance, I would like to promote a quiz offer which is working in UK. It converts well simply because Im promoting on a different demographic. Maybe not a lot of people promote that offer or promote it in that geographical location.

The thing is you can follow what others do by promoting those hot campaigns and yet still fail badly or promote something unknown, lose money, then capitalize in the end.

Affiliate Marketing is a testing and tweaking business (and spending too). Even the highest converting products will suck if you do your campaigns poorly. And besides if there’s such a best product to promote, why would I tell it to you anyway?


Importance of Domain Name in Affiliate Marketing

By Affiliate Hat On September 25, 2009 1 Comment

It will be surprising to know how the Super Affiliates earn great amount of money. There are some secret tools that they use but generally they never inform to anyone.

One of the secret techniques that they use is to transform a tough, complicated and long affiliate link into the smaller and easy to remember domain name. Then after, they forward this domain name to an affiliate link.

Most of the affiliate programs do not allow you to use their name. The changes in their name are also permitted. So, you need to register a generic domain name and point it to your affiliate link.

Suppose, you require to use one of your domains to advertise spyware removal software. For this, you need to use a short, seven letter domain name instead of using your actual affiliate link. Do not expect people to type this link as a domain name into their browser. You will be using this only when you put the listings in the search engines which allow pay per click such as Google AdWords, Overture, Enhance Interactive and FindWhat. So, what you are doing here is, sending the users directly to the sites with a domain that fulfills the requirement of the users related to the particular site.

Remember that the domain registrar should allow you to forward the domain to the URL for free or with very less cost. If you have a domain for your affiliate link, it can be useful to opt in the newsletter.
