Finding and Selling Hot Affiliate Products
Before you will make money online finding and selling hot affiliate products, you need
to understand what people want. You need to find a hungry audience and offer to feed them
what they want. It's not enough just to provide food. For example, if someone wants fish,
you are unlikely to sell him steak or ice cream.
Finding and selling hot affiliate programs isn't all that difficult if you follow a few
rules and do your due diligence. Spending time doing good quality research is the key to
You need to find out what demand there is for a certain product in the market, then
examine your potential competition to find out if the market is already saturated, or if
you have found yourself a viable niche.
"What should I sell?" "What products do people want?" "What's selling well now?" "How
can I find a hot product?" These are questions many people ask and they are good questions
to ask when starting your research. Going out and finding a product that appeals to you is
not going to work, unless you just happen to like what is hot.
Before you even look at a product, you need to find a niche of people with a problem
they will do anything to solve. You need to understand your potential customers before you
should even think about products.
Your potential customers must want and desire to have the product you would like to
sell them. A person must want a product. If they want a product enough, they will justify
the need for the product. Want is a desire to have something, regardless if it is truly
necessary to the function of the potential buyer's life. Need is an essential. Everyone
needs food and shelter, but some people want their shelter to be six bedrooms, three
bathrooms, a pool, Jacuzzi and so on. Workers need transport to get to work, but some
workers will want a Ferrari while others will happily catch a bus. That is the difference
between want and need.
Your potential customers have a problem they want solved and they're happy if you can
help them solve it and will reward you for doing so.
Your potential customers have to perceive value in your product. The product has to fit
into their wants, solve their problems and they need to perceive it's good value to them.
That doesn't mean the product has to be cheap, in fact, it may be the very opposite.
People pay extraordinary amounts of money for products and services they perceive to have
a very high value to them.
Once you've looked at your potential customers and addressed their wants and solved
their problems, you can consider the level of competition your product will have.
Affiliate products are not unique to you; others will also sell them, so you need to see
if you are able to capture enough market share to make the product viable for you. It's
important then, to choose a niche where you can gain substantial market share, dominate or
challenge the others competitors in the same field.
