Make Money Online: Increase Your Earnings With High Commission Affiliate Programs

(Photo credit: Wikipedia)Making money online through affiliate marketing is not an easy task. Many times, beginners grow increasingly frustrated at their minimal returns that they neglect their business plan in the midst of trying to establish one. By choosing the right affiliate products and by joining the right affiliate programs, you have the opportunity to multiple your earnings. All this, by the way, with the same amount of work.
If you pay attention to the "experts," you have already learned that you need to select an affiliate product that will give you a high percentage per sale. Many individuals, as a rule of thumb, will not promote a product unless they receive at least 40% commission per sale.
Wow! Forty percent commission? Sounds impressive, doesn't it?
It does, until you realize that 40% of $9.99 is less than $4.00. So, let's forget what "they" told us about focusing on products that give you a high percentage commission per sale.
They also tell you to pay attention to the statistics that an affiliate program provides. If you want to understand how successfully a product will convert, you should pay attention to how popular a product is, the product gravity, and keyword competition.
Ugh. Sounds like a lot, doesn't it?
It's too much, if you ask me. Gravity and popularity are statistics that can often be manipulated by the bigger players in the game. Over time, I have found that these are nearly useless indicators of whether a product will help me make money online.
Forget nearly everything "they" taught you. "They" just want you to buy and promote "their" products. I have discovered that the secret to online financial success is by promoting products were I earn a measly 4% to 8% commission? Would you believe that these low commissions can still earn you thousands of dollars?
You should explore promoting high ticket items. The vast majority of items I promote cost tens--if not hundreds of thousands--of dollars. And rather than hustling for sale after sale after sale, I focus my energy and now only realize that two, four, or five sales per month is all that is needed for financial success.
It is not about the percentage you earn per sale. It is not even about the stats that they provide to you. It is about finding expensive items that can earn you thousands of dollars profit with each sale.
Are you interested in finding high ticket items to promote and see your bottom line explode?
