    Are You Promoting High Ticket Products? If Not Why Not?
    Hi everyone.

    I wanted to get a feel for how many people are promoting high ticket affiliate products.

    When I say high ticket I mean $1,000 to $9,000 commission levels.

    Thanks

    Sam

    I promote items in all price ranges. The thing about more expensive items is that they have a longer purchasing funnel which means more opportunities for your cookie to be overwritten. The volume is also much lower and the competition is much higher. Lastly, commission rates tend to be pretty poor, at least for me. So for example, say you sell a $3K laptop on Amazon. That's a $25 commission or a rate of .83%.

    Promoting high dollar items isn't all roses and sunshine, let's put it that way... Am curious what other people think.
    Merchants, any data you provide to Google Shopping should also be in your affiliate network datafeed. More data means more sales!

    I have also promoted products at all price points, but I have only been able to make enough money to give up my job and make a full time living since I started promoting high ticket products, or should I say Business opportunities

    This thread makes my : tingle!

    The only high end stuff I ever promoted back in the day was jewellery and while sales were infrequent, it was nice when they happened. Big difference from, as isellstuff mentioned, .83% on electronics at Amazon.

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!

    Amazon is capping commissions on computers and computer equipment to $25 no matter the sale price.

    I have a merchant that pays $1200 commission on a $10k order and we have add a few in the last four years. More importantly they pay 12% on $2,000, $5,000 and $7,000 orders but its the $100 to $500 orders that affiliates are making money on.

    So I will take the bait, what kind of program pays a $9,000 commission?

    I was thinking more ground floor opportunity, but we'll see.

    Oh no, I didn't see that the OP did that... I kindof thought that he was going to spam us, but.... I thought he meant $1K - $9k items, not commissions.
