How To Use Viral Products for a Residual income

Aug 17, 2007
Viral products are not new but they seem to be gaining in popularity very quickly and it's easy to see why. By using viral products you can make a very good residual income through your affiliate programs. But if you are not familiar with the concept of viral products, then they are a product, whether it be a report, an ebook or a video that is distributed by the people who use it, on the basis that others may find it interesting. If you are the originator of the product then as well as giving the reader, or user, some reason to be interested enough in your product to want to pass it on to others, you can put in links to your affiliate programs.

This means that not only do you have very few marketing costs, but that once you have gotten the product distributed, then it will market itself. Your only cost is the initial marketing for the product. But you have to make sure that it is sufficiently interesting for people to want not only read it themselves, but also to want to pass it on to others, whether they be friends, colleagues or clients.

Typically if you were looking to sell marketing products as an affiliate, then you would write an ebook or report on how to make money from a home business and fill it full of useful information that will be of interest to anyone that is looking to start trying to make money from home. You could include such things as how to set up a web site, how to find affiliate programs and where to get a good hosting package. Then as well as writing these sections you would include your own recommendations (with your affiliate link), so that they could buy the things that you recommend. The more your free book is passed around the more it becomes a residual income by getting your affiliate programs noticed.

But unless your ebook is really good then it will not really work as well as it could do for you. You will still get to the people who see it from your launch, but that's all. People will not think to give it to their friends and work colleagues, unless it is not only free but also very good. If your book gives great information then people will give it away to their friends and so distribute it for you. Viral products are a great way to make a really good residual income from your affiliate programs if you get it right and make a good product that peoeple want to pass on.
