Selling products for other companies, also known as affiliate marketing, can be quite lucrative after some initial time investment and by employing the right tools. Other companies are willing to pay you a percentage just by advertising on your site, meaning that the more you promote your site, the more potential you have of making money. Selling online is a straightforward process, though I’m not going to lie – it can be really hard and time-consuming to get going. However, selling products for other companies has its perks and can result in a constant stream of passive income when done correctly. To learn more about the approach you can should take to start you on your journey of learning how to sell products for companies online, follow our 3 step guide below or get started here.
1. Start with Your Store, Not the Products
A common pitfall many people fall into when looking to sell online products for other companies is that they research the perfect product they want to buy. If you already have a product in mind, that is great, but if not, that isn’t always the best way to go. The number one thing anyone looking to sell online will need to do is establish their online presence. This means securing a domain and setting up a website where you can begin funneling people interested in the product you are selling. It will also serve as your platform to communicate with potential customers and inspire them to buy whichever company’s product, thus putting money in your pocket. You don’t even have to have capital to start your online store. Whether you are selling one product or more, you can start with 0 dollars upfront.

2. Determine Your Niche and Build!
After you set up your website, this is when you will want to decide what you are going to sell. This way, you will know exactly how and who to target when you begin selling your products. You will be able to use your website as a marketing tool to convince people to buy what you are selling, so you will want to funnel as many people interested in that product as possible. This includes learning how to make your website findable. With the right training, you will be able to learn how to do this easily, though it is admittedly a very time-consuming task to begin initially.
3. Get Involved in Your Community
No, not where you live (though that’s cool if you do) – your online community! After you begin getting traffic to your site, and making a few sales, you will need to take your business to the next level to really start succeeding.
