Avoiding the Biggest Online Hiccup in Internet Marketing

by Sushant Risodkar · 7 comments

Mostly, all affiliate marketing tips will tell you that How to be successful at affiliate marketing and it is important that you find a product that is “Popular Currently“. There is a lot of truth in this; as your success at affiliate marketing hinges on you being able to sell your affiliate product. The hotter the product, the faster it gets sold, the faster you rake in the profits.

However, in an attempt to cash in on the popularity of the product, there is one aspect you may tend to overlook – the product you are promoting is being sold online.

The “Wind in your Hair” Factor in Affiliate Marketing

In an era where the internet has pervaded all spheres of our lives, there are still some things it cannot replace and there are still some things that most people will hesitate to buy online.

If you are selling popular models of coffee-makers you would have interested buyers tripping over themselves to get to your site and grab them off the virtual shelves but would they do the same if your affiliate product was a race car or a speed bike? I don’t think so.

No matter how fast your internet connection is, it still cannot replace feeling of the wind in your hair as you zoom past on your two-wheeled speed demon or the surge of raw power you feel as you rev up the engine of a race car. Race cars and speed bikes may be in great demand during the racing season but a race enthusiast would hardly be likely to want to buy his lean, mean, racing machine over the internet(rarely).

There’s something about seeing, touching and feeling the machine before inserting the key into the ignition and driving it home that the internet can never replace. No matter how many affiliate marketing tips you may read, just think about whether you can feel the “wind in your hair” before you choose to promote that particular product.

I hope you might have liked reading this article. Today, My Social Science subject paper was over(5 more remaining) and I think I performed good in it..History 🙂

In my case, I would imagine that the ideal affiliate for my site would be some kind of MI retailer like ZZounds or PSSL….because of the similar KW and the possibility that many of my site’s visitors might be also in that same market.

Great post. I see your point. Not all products can be effectively sold in the internet. However, you can still use Internet Marketing to promote your business. Marketing your products online will provide easy access to your target customers. In case of products that need to be touched and examined physically by the customers before making a purchase, you can just simply show them in the net what you have and they could come to your store to purchase.

Yes, I got your idea. Not all products can be sold online. This is only proves that doing what you want will not always make you money.

In the end, there’s always a right place for everything.

Thanks for reminding us.

Well, this is where the term “marketing” really goes into play.
You will need to research your potential customers, and find out about their buying habits etc.

And the “wind in your hair” thing, is a trick being widely used on salespages. “Imagine what you could do with (Input crazy amount of money here) each month…”
But it really sells. If you are a car salesman (offline), you SHOULD use that trick. And it can be used in many niches as well. I have been a salesman for over 2 years, and I have used it a lot.
