What is a high ticket affiliate marketing opportunity?
High ticket affiliate marketing opportunities include using affiliate links to higher-priced products ($500 plus as a rough guide).
The higher prices generally mean you can earn a high commission. For example if your commission is 5% on a $500 product versus 5% on a $100 product.
As an online business owner, earning money for your efforts is important, unless your website is a hobby.
I recently read a FB post from a struggling business owner that had made just $20 in 7 months!
Why include high ticket products on my site?
Consider, if you sell 100 products for $10 each and earn $1000. That’s 100 customers that you need to look after. If you sell 1 product for $1,000 then that’s 1 customer to look after. That means you can spend more time looking after and following up with that customer to ensure they are happy.
If you have a customer that has purchased a lower priced product, say $10 and they love it, they now are more likely to buy from you as you have delivered a great experience. High ticket products are usually planned and saved for in advance and customers will usually take a long time to decide whether to invest in a high ticket product. If they already trust you, and know you deliver or recommend great products, offering these products to them is a win-win. They get a good product from someone they trust, and you get the commission / sale for your efforts.
Commissions will vary a lot. As always with affiliate marketing and online business, we suggest what products you recommend are ones you are confident will make your customers happy and meet their needs / wants.
Many established online businesses, such as online course creators choose to create an affiliate marketing program so that they can co-promote other experts online courses that are aligned with their business. This is a great way to increase your traffic and income, without having to spend further time developing products. To do this they create an affiliate marketing program for their online course.
