Creating An Income Without Having A Product
There is a lot of money to be made from the internet; some people are very successful with associate programs and are making over $1.000.000 each year from reseller products alone.
As you promote a product from someone else, you don’t need to have your own product, keeping inventory, dealing with customer issues, such as refunds, or keeping the product up to date.
Being a reseller is not hard at all, it can bring in a very nice amount of money each and every month. The only thing you have to do is promote the product.
Even if you just want to make a few $100 extra per month, you can do that, but you can also be making a full time income from promoting affiliate products.
The easiest and also the fastest way to get started is by promoting downloadable products because this is where you can make the biggest profit. But before you can get started, you have to register and signup for a few programs.
The biggest retailer from downloadable products is called Clickbank.com. There you’ll find more than 1000s of products you can promote as an affiliate.
Becoming a member with Clickbank is free and easy, it seems they never rejected anybody. Click on the link, Signup for Clickbank.com, it will open in a new window and take you directly to their sign up page, where you have to fill in all the information.
Find A Product To Promote As A Reseller
After this is done you have to find a product to promote; click on ‘marketplace’ in the top near the middle, and in the list of categories select E-business & E-marketing. (Of course you can choose any category you want).
You’ll get onto the next page where you can find products from some successful marketers. Here you can find a lot of information: The name of the product, and by Stats you’ll find some useful information;
Initial $ /sale: the amount you’ll get if you sell the product;
Avg $ /sale: the average amount you’ll get if you sell the product;
Avg % /sale: the percentage of the price you’ll get; very often this is 75%
Avg Rebill Total: this is the total amount you get when there is recurring billing;
Avg % /rebill: the percentage of the recurring billing;
Grav: this means gravity and is the number of affiliates that made a sale with this product.
Always choose quality products with a high gravity as these have proven to be high converting products. You might find a product that many other resellers also promoting.
High gravity means the product is wanted and can bring in a lot of sales. Do some research and see if the program had a lot of refunds.
You won’t make much money if a product is not good enough and a lot of people are asking for a refund. This is a problem with Clickbank as they sell almost everything, even when it is a low quality product.
Next, look for affiliate promotional products: banners; articles; text links; sales letters; and emails. This is what you need to promote the product.
Do keyword research to find the right long tail keywords for your content, to make sure your article will be found in the search engine.
After you have finished your well written article, you have to submit it to article directories. The biggest one is http://ezinearticles.com.
Just make sure your article is informative, unique, well written with good keywords and submit it to the right category, or it will be rejected.
You can find a lot more article directories if you just perform a search in Google. Almost all article directories should be free to join.
If you have to pay to submit your article, then move on to the next one. There are enough article directories for free, even the bigger ones.
When your article is accepted, you’ll receive an email, and your article will be listed in their article directory. Shortly after, your article will be online and also in the search engine and can be found by interested people.
Article marketing is a very good way to get listed in the search engines very quickly, most often even within 24 hours!
