Affiliate Information Products: Changing
Trends in 2005
by: Fred Farah
2005 is a great year for affiliate marketers, as online
businesses will continue to grow exponentially. 2004 showed
a major transition in the type of products sold in affiliate
Did you notice all the other major changes in the Internet
Marketing scene in 2004? Or did they pass you by, and
you missed out on the opportunities to make money with
the new types of products. EBooks are still the most popular
type of information product being sold at this point.
But lots of ground has been lost to the other methods
of delivering information.
Every week there are lots of tele-seminars provided. Most
of them are at no cost. Those that charge are increasing
in scope, and are real moneymakers for the hosts. Web
casts and video presentations are growing in popularity.
Most of the above are recorded, and can often be viewed
or downloaded after the event is over. I have collected
1 GB of Audio and video files and am overwhelmed by it
all. I just can't find enough time to listen to them all.
That of course, is one of the advantages of written text
in ebook form. One can scan through the ebook, and select
the areas we want to absorb more fully. An audio recording
must be listened to in its entirety, so it takes much
In spite of this, the popularity of this media is growing
very fast. People feel more involved participating in
a teleseminar, or even a recording of it, as compared
to the reading of an ebook. You must give your market
what they want, or you lose out big time.
Another important shift in product popularity that boomed
in 2004 is the home delivery of printed text books along
with DVD or CD media. There were several Big Deals last
year of very expensive products that made record breaking
John Reece sold over $1 million dollars of products in
24 hours. The product delivered to your door cost $997.
The commission paid to those that he invited to Joint
Venture with him is 50%. Up to $500,000 affiliate commissions
were made in 24 hours. The product is still selling at
the same price.
This all gives you a clue as to what will continue to
change and expand in 2005. These trends will blossom further
in 2005. The frantic craze of Blogging and RSS are roaring
ahead and being installed like a runaway freight train.
Will you join these trends in some way? You should. I
know I will. Take RSS for example. There are 2 ways to
get involved. The easiest and almost a must-have is to
just install an RSS reader. This permits you to subscribe
to blogs and newsletters that are delivered direct to
your desktop without email spam filters blocking the reception.
The alternative is to install an RSS publishing system.
This is much more complex and not for everyone.
As an online marketer it is imperative that you keep up
to date on the major trend shifts in 2005. Failure to
do this could mean that you're using the traditional methods
that were successful 12 months ago, and may be 'old news'
today, Your results will quite probably be sub-standard.
It is imperative that you recognize and react quickly
to any changing trends. This is the key to success in
2005 and only those who "stay awake" and have
the desire to constantly improve their business model
will succeed this year.
