How To Start Your Own Online Business
You should have your wordpress website now all set up and ready for business, if you do not get your butt to wordpress and do this before even considering what niche you wish to promote on your website. For those who have their website all set up for business and have decided on your niche this article is for YOU.
I know when I first started my own health business , I was very confused of all the awesome products available online to promote. I drove myself crazy thinking what is the best product to promote on my new website which is in great demand. I have experienced the best plan for choosing products are products which you yourself and the people you know would purchase or have an interest in. For any niche no matter what it might be, there are more then enough other people interested in it just like you. When I consider a new product to promote, the first thing I consider is this something I would be interested in purchasing myself.
Services to promote I use the same plan as for products, if the service your considering on purchasing is something you would possibly purchase yourself there are others also more likely who will be interested in this service as well. I chose products over services for my health business, my health business is helping others deal with their anxiety without medication. So I promote products I use or have used in the past, products I believe will benefit the people reading my articles and experimenting with the information and products to learn to deal better with their own anxiety.
Physical Versus Digital Products
Physical products are products which the customer will receive through shipping from your affiliate program, digital products are products the customer will receive immediately through a download through their computer. Physical products has a much smaller commission on sales then digital products, I feel its really just what you prefer which is the best for you to choose. You can even promote both types of products if you desire to experiment, I choose physical products myself just because with my niche I feel the physical products are more of a benefit to my readers then the digital products I have found online.
Digital services of course are very popular today since the internet is in almost every home in the USA, digital services are instant delivery to the customer and often these could possibly impulse purchases rather then thought out purchases such as physical products might be.
Once you have your website set up for business and have chosen your niche, the next step is deciding if you prefer products or services or both. Digital or physical products or both, products or services or both. Most business’s usually specialize in promoting either products or services depending on their niche, I suggest you check out the available affiliate programs available online. There is no right or wrong decision in this, just go with your instincts and what is your personal preference. Next article I will share some ways to find affiliate programs to promote, until then if you wish to research on your own that will be fine.
