Affiliates for your products are hard to come by if you are not willing to go out there and ask them to come aboard, and start selling your products for you. A few of the mistakes that digital product sellers make are outlined below. If you are making any of these mistakes, don’t worry – they are easy to rectify. If you don’t recognize a problem – then just take a step back, and ask yourself if you could sell 500 products in a month easily, or find 20 people to sell your products for you? Usually the latter is easier than the former.
To find affiliates you do have to go and knock on doors, in a manner of speaking. There are thousands of super affiliates out there who will not actually work with you unless you have the respect of your community, and the community you share with the affiliate. What you must first do is get someone to take a chance on you. To do this, you may have to sacrifice some revenue. Test your product by finding an affiliate who will JV with your for 100% commission. Let them keep 100% of the revenue for this test, just make sure you get full stats of the campaign afterward. You can then use these conversions to launch a successful affiliate recruitment campaign. This is key to finding future affiliates.
Many internet marketing forums have JV (joint venture) sections, that are often free to post in. Simply post the results of your 100% JV campaign and see what happens. If people start coming in, then you should speak with each of them directly. The personal approach makes people feel instantly at home with the vendor, and they are much more likely to actually put the effort in to make you BOTH some money.
