To continue to my previous post “How To Start Affiliate Marketing”, I want to share my experience in changing product from physical product to becomes an affiliate.
In my experience, to build a product website, I need to put lots of time on product photo touch up and copywriter description, furthermore I also need to review product trend and update product profile. As I put months of effort in building my first website about Toys, under mentoring of Fion and Harrace, I learnt how to use site builder and put html codes which can made a tailor made like website. On the other hand, special thanks to their designers of grouping product photos to make an attractive banner at Welcome page.
Since the traffic was still low, I used SEO technique to review copywriter of website and compared with other competitors website. To speed up keyword research, I bought a keyword tool software, and I started to have adword campaign that I expected can drive more traffic to website and convert more business. I reviewed wording of adword campaign weekly and modified it, of course I got more traffic but it cannot convert to sales. After few weeks of trial, I concluded that the main course of failure was not on website design nor inadequate technique we put, I understood product I picked have already out (dolls and Anime figures) or too special (presale assembled Gundam prototype figure). Be a part-time marketer, it’s difficult to keep up-to-date toys products and renew site content frequently. Eventually I made a sorrowful decision, stopped further development of yourtoysstore.com.
After the experience of 1st website failure, I understood the constraint of part-time marketer that I need to have products with whole package (product, selling page, image, banner, etc). At the same time, I searched around all necessary information to build 2nd website such as domain registration, web hosting, etc….I found that most of web hosting provider have affiliate program and provide all nice banners, articles, hyper link support, etc….Moreover pay rate is very good.
From here, you may guess what product I intend to sell……Yes, affiliate products. After my research in ClickBank and CJ, I found huge products to sell. These 2 sites are also mentioned in tutorial with example of “Acne products” but I have not considered at that moment since my target was to setup toys website. But now, affiliate products are my target and have already made an affiliate product review website.
You can imagine….you have numerous products to sell without keep stock issue, and you don’t need to think about all promotion material such as banners, hyperlinks, blog articles, promotion articles, etc…….you just need to attract targeted customer to visit your site then drive them to product website. Once they made transaction, you will get paid. Affiliate marketing is not only give you money, it also give you career, better live style, less working stress…..I’ve jumped into it, how about you?
