There are two main approaches when you’re searching for some cool offers to promote. You can either pick your niche first, and select the products later. Or, you can do it the other way around…
The first approach is the intuitive one, but today we’re focusing on the second one.
So how to find profitable products? And more importantly, how do you know which products are profitable until you actually start promoting them?
Let’s start with Clickbank – one of the most popular affiliate networks.
You can start by going to the Marketplace and selecting a market (select a category from the left sidebar).
As an example, we’re going to use “Health & Fitness” – one of the busiest affiliate markets online.
One of the most important characteristics of every Clickbank product – from an affiliate’s standpoint – is the Gravity.
Clickbank explains Gravity as the number of distinct affiliates who earned a commission by promoting the product during the last 8 weeks.
This means that it’s a measure of success among affiliates promoting the product. This might sound counterintuitive at first, but the more people are making money with a given product the better.
In the left sidebar, there’s the Filters block:
The first item there is the Gravity. We advise you to go with products of Gravity over 30 or even 50. This is a good indication that a fair number of affiliates are making money off the product.
Next is the average commission per sale. This all depends on your individual preferences, but keep in mind that cheap products are not necessarily easier to sell than a bit more expensive ones. Therefore, we advise you to go with a minimum of $20 commission per sale.
Below the Filters block, there’s the Attributes block:
There are many different fields there, but for now let’s just focus on the one labeled as “Recurring” (in the billing section).
Finding a great product that works on a recurring billing basis can generate really good profits. The idea is simple – you sell once and get paid multiple times.
Of course, no one can guarantee that a recurring billing product will convert better than a standard one, but it’s always worth a shot.
10 Offers in 10 Minutes
If you do everything the way that’s described here, and set your filters and attributes to: gravity above 50, average commission per sale above $30, and recurring billing then you will end up with 10 great offers to promote.
