If you are trying to make money with your blog and you do not have your own product to sell, it is an absolute necessity to learn how to find niche products that others have created for you to review, promote and make money from.
What do I mean by “niche products”?
A niche product is a product that is related to your own niche (or blog topic).
You choose a niche (say self-development) and in order for you to make money from that, you need to find RELEVANT products for you to promote.
Stuff like books, e-courses, DVDs and all other stuff related to the self-development niche is your “niche product”.
Where And How To Find Niche Products
That is what I will be sharing with you today, I will be going through my experience selling both physical and non-physical items online and I will show you how and where to find products that your readers will love to buy from you.
What’s A Product?
A product could either be physical or a non-physical item. I happen to have experiences with both and I can say that for you, as an affiliate marketer of the product, there is really not much difference.
On my own blog, I sell non-physical products like eCourses, eBooks and training programs for those that wish to learn how to blog and build a business.
However, on my other blog, I sell niche jewellery.
With both products, I am completely hands off;
- I do not have to create the product
- I do not have to store and ship the product and
- I don’t have to do any other thing related to selling a product that I own.
My only job is to drive customers (through my blogging) to the sales page. That’s it.
As an affiliate marketer, a physical product or a digital product make no difference.
What Is A Good Product To Promote?
If you want to be successful at making money with your blogs, you need to find great products to promote.
How do you know if a product is good enough?
Easy; try it out yourself.
All the reviews I have on my blogs are products that I’ve bought and used myself.
If you do not have the budget to buy all the products you want to review, don’t worry there are other ways you can write a review.
However, it is always best to use the products yourself first before promoting it.
Bonus tip: If you do not want to buy the product, look for reviews online by simply typing “product name + review” or if the item is available on Amazon, go to the sales page and look at the reviews down at the bottom.
Where To Find Good Products To Promote?
In 2016, I’ve made it a point to review more products so knowing where to find great products was something I really wanted to do.
These are the main places where I go to find products to promote when I want to do a review:
Amazon has a HUGE database of products that you can promote with the help of their Amazon Associates program.
If you want to find niche products to promote, I suggest Amazon is the place to start.
Using the Amazon Associate network, you can easily become an affiliate for everything they sell on there and you will be paid every time you send a customer to Amazon:
They have a HUGE selection of products on there, just take a look at the Marketplace to find products in every niche imaginable!
JZ Zoo is also a major power player for non-physical products.
You can browse through the many, many niche categories on there and you will find 1000s of products to promote and make money with.
Share A Sale:
I use Share-a-Sale to sell the niche jewellery I mentioned earlier. From my own experience, I can say that Share A Sale is a very good program to get started with.
How To Sell A Product
Now that you know where to find great niche products, you should make a list of them and devise a plan on how to sell them (i.e to make money).
The best way to sell a product, based on my own experiences is by writing unique and informative.
If you take a look at my review page on this blog, you will see that all products I promote on here have their own unique, detailed review.
Well reviews rank amazingly well in search engines and also I can fully go into detail in a dedicated blog post on how the product works, how much it is, my opinions, pros and cons and etc..
A detailed review (you can see this one as an example) will be great for converting readers into buying.
If you publish a valuable review (see how here) you have a BIG chance of turning a reader into a customer.
Is 1 Product Enough To Make Money?
Yes and no.
If you are making your target income simply by promoting your 1 main product, then go ahead and stick with just the one.
If not, there is no reason as to why you shouldn’t promote other products too.
The way I do it on my blog is this I have my #1 recommend product (Wealthy Affiliate) and then I have other reviews that are also good, but often enough; not as good as WA.
If a product is not as good as WA, I will mention it and suggest to the reader to check it out. Simple.
Thank you very much for reading this post. this post should give you more than enough ideas on how to find niche products to promote and make money with.
Since you’ve made it this far, I would like to offer you a gift; my eBook “How To Win At Affiliate Marketing”.
It will show you how I find, review and promote products that make me recurring income as an affiliate every month! I highly recommend you check it out if you want to learn how to make money with your blog.
Thanks again, till next time.
