New people starting out looking for some extra income need products to sell. Affiliate marketers are often offered top quality branded products. This allows you the brand name to sell, and you to make big commissions.
Before you make the decision of selling branded items, here are some questions to ask yourself and investigate.
* Is the item a likely winner?
* Look around your home and see what you have acquired that you no longer want or need, but that is in good condition, fit the needs of the recipient.
* Are you aware about the brand? Were you aware of the brand name when you acquired it?
* Does the offer yield an ongoing, ongoing income stream?
Let’s consider each of these areas in turn.
1- Is the item a likely winner? While it’s a bit of a gamble that you get something you buy, it’s easier to sell if you already own it. Check around the house and you will likely find plenty that are in good shape, but have no use now.
You might know others who got the same item and already have it in their home. Why not bring your price down so they are more likely to buy?
2- Look around your home and see what you have acquired that you no longer want or need, but that is in good shape, fit the needs of the recipient.
I purchased a pair of comfortable feel-good running shoes from Name Brand. I never ran with them but they were a solid performer. They are popular with runners and fit very well with any running outfit.
I’ve sold them on eBay, but this doesn’t carry any additional income stream, since they’re discontinued. This is OK though, since it eliminates the purchase and shipping expense. I did have their parent company contact me with the proceeds from the sale, and I looked into developing a health related product for them. This offer was interested in providing the benefit of potentially higher profits for my work connections.
3- Are you aware about the brand? Were you aware of the brand name when you acquired it?
The name of the brand is often not readily available. But in cases where it is, it’s always worth the effort of some research to verify it online.
For example, I started marketing Miami clothing for my own use with hot items, like prints on T-shirts. I bought T-shirts in colors that didn’t translate well, were often in a remote place, and let me down with the customer service, so I hired a Miami seo expert to help with my marketing.
I was working quickly, yet getting frustrated and neglected customers. For one reason or another, even when I had the item in the mail, it seemed it didn’t do well.
I made sure I had a few friends or family members walk through the door with me to trace the item. At the last memory, I had already destroyed the store cookies my mother gave me, and all the detritus I had on the counter. I didn’t have any of it on my desk, though.
At the last visit, I found it had been brand new and that the company had shipped it out that evening. A surprise.
What has this to do with the development of a cost-effective branded sales program? Much.
When I see offers in my mailbox, I am more likely to buy them if it is a hot item that is in the condition I see listed.
For example, if I look in my mailbox to find information about software, I browse only those that are hot sellers. By the same principle, if you want to find hot product descriptions that are in great condition, learn from the actions of others.
Affiliate marketers often use the companies that post their offers. Are the others that you have shared with you really good?
