When you enter the affiliate marketing arena, you have many choices for which types of products you’d like to promote. Some people feel they have to choose between digital products or tangible products. But, in actuality, it’s always best to merge both into your marketing plan.

When you limit yourself to just one type of product, you may actually limit your income potential. But keeping an open mind about the types of products you’d like to promote can help you unleash your high earning potential.

Digital products include products such as eBooks, membership sites, and video courses. These products are purchased and available for instant download. You can join an affiliate program such as ClickBank to promote other people’s products or sign up as an affiliate on sites like Amazon to promote tangible products.

You can also create your own membership site where you sell memberships to give members access to specific content in your niche. Inside the members’ area, you can act as an affiliate and promote other people’s products.

For example, if you’re in the weight loss niche, you can promote eBooks on weight loss as well as membership sites for health and fitness. You can also promote tangible products in the niche such as dietary supplements, treadmills, and weight machines.

In this way, you can merge digital with tangible and get the best of both worlds. You won’t be limiting yourself to just one type of product – plus, you’ll increase your potential for growing your income.

However, if you choose to just go with one or the other – you can do that. When you’re working independently as an affiliate marketer, there’s no one set way to do things. You should just know that you might be limiting your income potential if you exclusively choose one type of product to promote.

Affiliate marketing and residual income will have greater potential when you open yourself up to as many opportunities as possible. It’s simple math. The more products you have to promote, the more potential commissions you can earn.

If you’ve already chosen just one type of product to promote, then you might want to think about how you can expand and combine promoting digital and tangible products to maximize your earning potential. In many niches, this is an easy thing to do and can boost your income greatly.

The bottom line is that when it comes to choosing digital versus tangible promotions for affiliate marketing, it’s always best if you can merge the two. But you always have the choice to limit your promotions if you wish.
