    This may sound like a strange question to you internet marketing experts but I was wondering if it is better to stick with one type of affiliate products that you market or if it's better to have a variety of things for people to pick from?

    I am talking mostly on a site or an email.

    I think you can have a variety as long as they are similar or they go together. If you try to have some things that are very different them the people that see your offers might not be interested because they are different than they are interested in.

    For site you can always have affiliate programs in different niches listed so that you do not waste your ad spots, and for email you will have to stick with one as you do not want to confuse your subscribers.

    I was also wanting to know about this myself. I was wondering about the mails mostly. Thanks for sharing the information I am going to write this down on my notes.

    This is good to know. Thanks

    Should the things in emails be all about the same things or is a little variety ok?

    I think that it can be good to have a variety of different items but it's usually best to stay within a certain niche, especially on websites or blogs.

    Things that would commonly go together, be used together, complement each other and things along those lines usually tend to have better conversion rates than straying too far from what people might want, know or be favorable towards.

    I have used a variety of different items on some of my websites and had success doing that. I do always try to have the items that I think that my website viewers might be interested and not have things that are really different that you would normally find on a website in a certain niche.

    If you can get some accurate information on the type of people that are coming to your site then you might be able to find things that are usually good for those types of people.

    I always do testing on my sites to see what works best and sometimes the results will surprise you so trying different things can bring some success for you.

    One type OR variety of affiliate products is not a problem. The problem is how do you get traffic. Once you have traffic you will have many ways to make money.

    I always try to have a variety of items that I am trying to market but things that are in some way related to the niche I am working in. I don't know if that is helping or hurting my income but that's how I do it lately and it has helped my income go up from what it was before.

    Then it's best to just worry about getting traffic first and then after I get good traffic numbers then decide on the products?

    I always try to have some different things but they are all in the same niche I am working in. Like if you are in the sports niche then you would not only have things for football but also other sports as well so you have a better chance of making some money.

    That is about what I was thinking about. A variety but still a little similar in the type of things in my area of sales.

    I think as long as they are things to go together or are some way related then it can help increase the chances of conversions.

    That makes sense from a sales standpoint now that I think about it. I just need to get up to speed with the other internet marketers around here so I know these things.

    Read and ask questions and you will catch up with many of them. I need to do some catching up myself on many things.

    That's what I have been doing but since most things are new to me it's taking a little time to get everything. I am trying to put as much time in checking on things to help. I usually catch on quickly so I should be fine soon.

    Internet marketing is a continuing learning process but just getting the basics down and reading on the current IM trends can help.

    I am doing reading on it always but there are often words or terms that are used that are confusing or that I have to look up and that makes it harder to learn.

    It's the same way for us who have been doing it longer than you too. I have to look up things sometime myself.
