Choosing The Best Affiliate Product

photo-1441448770220-76743f9e6af6

There really is no huge secret to choosing the best affiliate opportunity. They all work. Some better than others, but all in all, they all work to some degree. Your online success is solely dependent upon how much effort you put into building your network. Little to No effort = Little to No Success. Now that’s not to say if you put a ton of effort into your online biz you will automatically succeed. You need to put the right, “smart effort” into your online biz to have the best chance at success. Stick with one product, program or opportunity. Learn how it works and the best ways to advertise and promote for it. Don’t change focus until you’ve learned all the ins and outs of your business and achieved some degree of success.

How to Choose The Best Affiliate Product Run Down..

Do You Like it ?

Some say it doesn’t matter if you like the product or not, and are more concerned with whether or not it can make you money. First starting off you will probably look for products that seem easy, can get you rich quick. Avoid this. From talking with many clients and well established marketers on the phone, hosting webinars and speaking about the issues they came across when they first started online, many said they went for the “get rich quick” opportunity. Some saw minimal success and others just gave up. The get rich quick schemes benefit those who are already established in the online biz community and those who are ready to promote the mess out of the product all over the internet. No one is safe. Established affiliate marketers benefit the most from these opportunities. They already have a list of subscribers they can market to and know their percentages of how much they can look to make if they promote the product. The  problem with beginners is that they give up or just don’t know what to do. We suggest purchasing a product that is going to detail how to adequately use it and much more. A product that will tell you everything you need to know to succeed online and apply to any business model. And not just something that teaches you how to promote what it is you bought in the first place.

Yes no maybe

Is There Room At The Top ?

Are you capable of making what the top affiliate is making in the company? Or are you doing all the work, and that person is benefiting the most from it? Look over the compensation plan of the company. If it makes sense go for it. If not, then I would suggest choosing a compensation plan that makes sense to you, and fits what you want.

 

The Least you Can invest with the Most Profit is Always Niceaffiliate

Now this is a little tricky. In order to make big money you have to invest big money. Or you just have to have the most amazing promotional skills that can get you over 200 sales for a $25 item, versus one or two big time sales for a $2500 item. It all depends on the type of person you are and what kind of business model you want to run. Some questions to ask yourself.

  1. Is the price affordable for the everyday person?
  2. Are you gaining substantial knowledge from the product/s?
  3. Are the products something you can use or apply to things outside of the product itself?
  4. How many/much must you sale to hit your monthly income goal?
  5. Does the amount of time and effort put in promoting relate to the potential income you can make?
  6. Would others be interested in buying the products? (i.e. is there a market for what your looking to sell?)

Key Factor To Success: Consistency #success #obi

Key factor to success

Everyone wants to achieve success, but many do not know how. To be completely honest there really is only one key factor to success… Consistency.. But before we talk about consistency lets first touch on the factors you will need to incorporate into you success machine to ensure it.

Mindset Key Factor To success

Do you have the right outlook on life? Are you open minded about the avenues you are looking to take to achieve success? Are you open to new ideas introduced by others? A lot of times when we are looking to achieve optimal success we go into tunnel vision and information overload. Not listening to others who may be trying to help us, and spending all our time learning  about what we are trying to do, and never actually “doing” it. It is so important to learn how to take in information from others, filter out the malarkey and execute the remaining useful information. There are going to be hard times throughout this journey, you are going to want to give up, quit and break down, but is important that you remember why you started. Keep your end goal in mind at all times. The things you need to do along the way to get there will slowly fall in place.

An Idea

How is your idea different from others? Have you done research to see if anyone else has done this already? If so, what make yours unique? Do you have a solid plan of execution? Have you written out every possible direction your idea can be taken or interpreted? How is this idea going to impact the world ? Is this idea beneficial to those you’re trying to reach? Can the everyday person benefit from this idea ? What/who is your target audience?

Everyone starts with an idea. It’s those who nurture, develop and EXECUTE their idea who get there message out there and to the masses. Never let anyone tell you your idea is dumb or impossible to achieve.  You never know what people will buy or want.  (Great examples of this are things like “snuggies” “shake weights” and the “pet rock”. How many people do you think told those guys that those we dumb ideas?)

#1 Key Factor to Success: Consistency Key factor to success

Now of course this is Online Biz Information’s experience, but here is where we loose 95% of the people who have an “idea”. And this is in their lack of consistency in their efforts. After you have your idea, product or service continue to promote it til you can’t anymore… and then promote it some more ! Ideas are pretty much waiting games. If you keep saying or doing the same things for long enough eventually people will follow suit. These are some quotes to live by when it comes to pursuing your business and life goals:

 

 

Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.
– Newt Gingrich

Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.
– William Feather

How long should you try? Until.
– Jim Rohn

How Online Biz Info Uses Social Media to Stay connected :Online Biz Info

Twitter

One of the tools I use to “get in the know” is Twitter.

Twitter has become one of the sources I use to stay up to date on what’s going on in the world. It is a microblogging platform that delivers information in less than 140 characters. Follow the major companies, news networks, celebrities or friends you wish to stay up to date on whats going on in the world and their private lives.

If Twitter is not your thing or you feel you are to old to tweet what you do on a daily basis don’t worry. Not everyone is tweeting their life away. Many individuals use twitter to share blog posts, funny pictures, inspirational quotes or share information others share. Use choose how you wish to use twitter. However if you are looking for a quick and easy way to get in the know, this is the simplest way to do it.

Follow Online Biz Info on Twitter (tell us you came from the blog and well give you a shout out ! )

Scoop.ItOnline Biz Information on Scoop it

Scoop.It is a great tool to share information. Follow individuals in your niche and stay up to date on what is going on. Full length articles and conversation pertaining to a certain topic can be found on scoop.it.

Online Biz Information mainly uses Scoop.It to stay up to date on what’s going on in the online biz world through the eyes of our peers. It is a great way to read from someone else perspective about topics that interest you and things you may not be aware of happening.

Follow Online Biz Info on Scoop.It

 Stumble Upon

This tool or networking site is awesome. It’s completely random and you never know what information is going to show up next. This is a great way to follow and be exposed to all types of information in one setting. Follow niches you choose to follow but also “Stumble ” around on the site to view an assortment of articles that others have written.

I read a lot of cool stuff on Stumble Upon. Though I do not use this tool often it is nice to refresh my perspective on life.

The 3 Componets of Building a Successful Online Biz

Building a Successful online Biz

Building a successful online biz is tough. It takes time, dedication, coaching and self education. If you’re looking to build a business online there are 3 main things you must have.

An audience, a platform and a Product.

Your Audience

Your audience is potentially every person you come in contact with. The famous cliche, don’t judge a book by it’s cover is prevalent in all aspects of business. You never know what someone wants or is interested in until you present them with it. The difference between face to face network marketing, and online marketing is the ability to target specific individuals. The beauty of online marketing is that if you have a specific product, you can target those individuals looking for that specific product. How, through content marketing and paid advertising methods. You can find out where your audience “lives” online and market it there. Your audience online is a lot simpler to find than your audience in everyday life.

A Platform

You will need a platform to reach your audience. How are people going to know you are starting an online business if you are not anywhere on the internet ? Get on track to building a successful online biz by choosing the platform or platforms that best suite you, and the product’s you are promoting. A hint, you should be active in all of these networks.

Types of Platforms:social-media-buttons

  • Blog
  • Website
  • Facebook
  • Pintrest
  • Twitter

A Product

Online Business Opportunities, such as The Blog Beast, teach you everything you need to know about how to make money online. And when I say everything, I mean every little thing you could possibly think of. You can also join affiliate networks offered by major online companies like Amazon or Clickbank. Almost all businesses online offer the opportunity to sell their products.

The Importance of Cross Promotion

CrossPromotion

What is Cross Promotion?cross promotion

Cross promotion is a form of marketing in which an individual or business of particular products and services, promotes similar products that may of interest to their customers and followers.

An example of cross promotion, is one marketer promoting another, and vice versa. Not only does this edify each individual who is being promoted, but you also personally brand yourself as the person to look towards for information.

Why Cross Promote?

  • Edification
  • Gain new followers
  • Exposure
  • Win-Win situation for both parties
  • Cost of promotion is cheaper (most cases free)
  • One of the beneficial types of promotion

How To Cross Promote :

Find Individuals in your Niche: Look for people who are interested in the same types of information you are sharing. Cross promotion of individuals in your niche is a great way to grow your business and build relationships. “Everyone you ever meet will know something you don’t.”

Explain the benefit of the relationship: what can you help them achieve ? How does this benefit them ?  Can you guarantee them any thing? Is your relationship a “I scratch your back you scratch mine” or do the two parties involved genuinely care about the success of the other. People are always looking to know what they can benefit from building a partnership with others. So sell yourself on this part. Surround yourself by those achieving success and you will too.

Discuss a cross promotion scheme: One time website featured or continued partnership ? Be sure both parties on the same page when it comes to cross promotion. understand the agreement arrange and leave no detail unclear.

If you are unfamiliar with cross promotion this is a great way to gain new followers and expand your reach, as mention in Why Cross Promote. Not everyone who follows you is going to like you as an individual, so why not suggest someone who they might like to follow. May give you brownie points.
