The largest stumbling block to finding red hot products to sell online for many beginners is finding the resources and tools for locating these products. Some people act like it is a closely guarded secret. Others wouldn’t tell you how to locate these hot niches even if their Mothers lives depended on it.
Affiliate marketers who are successful know how and where to look for products and services that are in high demand. Many beginners make the mistake of searching for an affiliate program with a high payout. This can be a huge mistake! Or, they may choose a product that many Internet shoppers are not looking to buy. Another big mistake! To make money on the Internet, you need a lot of traffic and a hot product.
Start by making a list of the things you like and are passionate about. It has always been said that you can sell something you believe in. That’s true. It’s also true that it’s very hard to sell something you know nothing about or have no experience in. This is why it’s critical in finding something that you enjoy or are passionate about.
First, visit Yahoo or Google. Both have excellent resources to find those hot products that you’ll need to be successful. You can search the trends to see how popular a product or service is. You can look back weeks, months and somtimes even years to see how much search volume your chosen product or service has been getting. Google has a section called Hot Trends. Get to know this section well.
I really love using Google Trends. I’ve probably found more hot niches using Google Trends than any other tool that I’ve used over the years. Look for the line on the graph to be steady over time or slightly rise. You may notice that some products are seasonal, having up and down lines that occur about the same time each year. There’s nothing wrong with this, but you need to be aware that you’re looking at a season product.
The section you want to look for in Yahoo is Yahoo Buzz. This section tracks the most searched for terms of the previoius week or month. It will also tell you whether or not your term is on the rise or tapering off. Personally, I prefer Google Trends for seeing if the product is on fire or cooling off. To find it, go to buzzlog.buzz.yahoo dot com. Play around with it a while to really find the best niche products that are hot.
Experienced affiliate marketers will visit ebay in their search for a hot selling product. Go to Ebay Pulse to find the products that are the most searched for on Ebay. You can even drill down through the categories to find which product is the hot seller in your niche. Once you have several ideas, take them back to Google and Yahoo and run them through their paces.
You’ll soon be finding hot niches routinely. You’ll be surprised at how many hot niches you can find online by just making a list of the businesses in your part of town. Sometimes what’s popular in your town, be it a business or product, is also popular to the world. Never hesitate to put each of your ideas through your research to find out if a market exist!
