How To Find What You Need

Have you ever tried to find something online and came up empty?  You came close, got some information but didn’t quite nail it?  This can happen and is frustrating when it does.  Now what I am referring to is of course having to do with affiliate marketing.  As that is what this post is all about. 

Here are some suggestions that you can use to find what you are looking for:

  1. Social Media – You can find lots of resources on line especially in social media.  Even people you meet on social media and if need be point you in the right direction in finding what you are looking for.  This includes joining forums and groups.
  2. Word of Mouth – This is a powerful and popular way in finding what you want.  Basically, people in the know will show you where to go.  Or even have the answer for you.
  3. Affiliate Networks – Looking for a product or program, affiliate networks are a great place to search for them.  One such network is
  4. Your Customers – Yes, the people you’ve already helped out can be a good source of information for you.  You never know what they’ve been “into” if you don’t ask.  If you have a really good and loyal customer, reach out to them.
  5. Direct Internet Search – Yes, just “google it” and you may find it, granted this seems like a no-brainer, but quite a lot can be done by doing this basic search.
  6. Conferences – You meet a lot of very good people at these events and can be really educational.  You can even run into someone that can really make a difference.  Lots of information, products and people.  Some Affiliate companies have these and/or participate in them on an annual basis.  This is a very powerful and advantages opportunity to take advantage of.  Check with your affiliate company to see if they are having any soon.
  7. Directories – There are directories where you can not only list your affiliate marketing program, but find other products are programs as well.
  8. Other Affiliate Blogs – Affiliate Blogs (affiliate marketers blogs) are a great place to search for what you are looking for.  You may find an affiliate blogger who is in the same niche as you and has what you are looking for, or knows where to point you.
  9. Cold Calling – This one isn’t for me, but a good way to find things is to call people you already know that are already promoting other people’s products.  You never no who is out there that either has what you want or knows where to direct you.  This goes along with referring to other Affiliate’s blogs.
  10. Break out of the box – Not sure what to do, think about what it is that you are looking for.  Sometimes getting creative and/or brain storming can lead you to a solution in finding what you are looking for.  You may just surprise yourself and find something that is better than you first expected.  This may take some research and a little time in reaching a solution, but often this can be a great way to reach a solution.
  11. Create your solution – Like breaking out of the box, if you can’t find it and if it’s something that you can create yourself, go for it.  You may even develop your own product to sell.  Don’t let the fact that you can’t find something keep you from it.  If it’s a digital product, then it’s likely a 100% profit if you choose to sell them.
  12. Need a website or blog – There are a ton of hosting options on the internet to choose from and they are not all created equal.  Consider your options and affordability in this area.  You can either go cheap and get only what you need, or go big and get the best you can.  For this we do have a couple of great solutions for you.  There are 2 great options that can solve this issue for you.  Check out this post  – Ultimate Options For Website Hosting.  Consider this, where you choose to host your site is just as important as what you put into your site.  It’s like a foundation and you definitely want a very dependable hosting platform.  So if hosting is one of the things you are in the search for, your search is over.

Food for thought:

Don’t ever let not being able to find what you need or want keep you from your over all objectives.  Obstacles exist to be knocked over, and every problem has a solution.  For every intersection, there’s a turn, for every No, there’s a yes, so just because you couldn’t find it, doesn’t mean you can’t bypass it.  Start today and break out of the box and/or create your own solution.  This is also why this post was written because every time I ran into a wall, I was able to get around it.  Sometimes I had to get help, so if I can, you can.  It may even be an issue of not doing enough research on your particular need.  I put enough options in this post to get you to a starting point in finding what you need even if you have to refer to the steps at the bottom to get going in the right direction.  I’ve found that sometimes I had to walk away from it for a day or two and return to it with a clear mind.
