Here’s a question about affiliate marketing…
“Ben, I’m new to the Internet and decided to try my hand at affiliate marketing but I am unsure of how to pick a good product to sell. Do I just sell what’s high selling on Clickbank and what I see other people doing? Any advice for a newbie?”
BEN: Indeed I do…
A lot of people will disagree with it, though.
But, it’s worked out pretty good for me and it’s one of the secrets I teach in my Affiliate Trump Card product. In fact, it works so well that one buyer posted this on my blog: “The formula on page 17 is worth at least 100…times the modest investment…and not just for affiliate marketers.”
Maybe a bit of “puffery”?
Hey, see and judge for yourself:
One of the things I insist people do when choosing an affiliate product is to make sure the product has a unique and interesting STORY behind it.
This alone can close many a sale.
My favorite example is Ryan Healy’s freelancer eBook.
There are other similar products out there.
Including a few by some “big name” copywriters.
But Ryan’s stands out like a glowing red nose in the fog.
Because Ryan wasn’t “handed” anything. He had no special breaks… no special contacts in the industry… and had a LOT of pressure on him to succeed (he had no job and only two weeks of money with a mortgage, a child, a pregnant wife and no insurance — whoa!)
Talk about an interesting story!
It’s also inspirational and valuable, too.
And a lot of struggling freelancers can relate to it and, thus, believe in the product enough to give it a shot.
Anyway, there’s other criteria besides a great story.
But you know what?
Methinks if you did nothing but sell products built around fascinating stories, you will probably be successful.
And that ain’t no bull.
