3. Choose Your Niche

As a beginner affiliate marketer, one of the most important things before picking an offer to promote is choosing the right affiliate marketing niche.

So how do you do that?

We highly recommend picking a niche you’re already passionate about. For example, if you love working out and keeping in shape, you'll probably want to search the Digistore24 Marketplace for Health & Fitness offers.

Sign Up or Log In to Digistore24 and Browse Offers on the Marketplace

There, you’ll find tons of vetted and proven health & wellness offers with all the resources you need to get started. Plus, we also have a dedicated article on the top 10 health offers on Digistore24, so make sure to give that a read too - if you’re interested in the health niche, of course.

If your interest lies in other areas, you can pick survival offers, business & investment offers, supplements, or whatever you desire. The more you know about a certain niche, the easier it will be to promote an offer within that space.

And ​​if you’re stuck on affiliate marketing niche ideas, don’t worry - we’ve got you covered!

In one of our previous blog articles, we’re giving a full rundown of where the biggest profits can be made in affiliate marketing, and which niches are the most profitable. So, we highly recommend reading that piece if you’re short on ideas.

4. Pick an Offer to Promote

Settled on a niche? Now it’s time to pick an offer from the Digistore24 Marketplace.

Our Marketplace is packed with plenty of options to choose from. You can even sort through the offers based on their popularity score, cart conversion rate, date of publication, and more.

Plus, you can browse the many categories if you want something from a specific niche.

And if you’re struggling to pick an offer, we recommend checking out our Top Digistore24 Offers & New Digistore24 Offers blog articles, for extra inspiration. And while you’re at it, you can read our post about The Best Products to Promote in Affiliate Marketing, as well. If you’re struggling on making a decision, these content pieces will definitely make picking an offer easier for you.

You can choose offers with 2 types of commission models on Digistore24: CPA and RevShare.

  • CPA is short for ‘Cost Per Action’. In affiliate marketing, this is a revenue model where vendors pay a fixed commission amount for a certain action to affiliates (ex: $50 for each sale referred).
  • RevShare is a revenue model in affiliate marketing where vendors split a portion of their total sales as the commission to affiliates (ex: 75% commission on sales sent from the affiliate).

Once you have decided on an offer, you can grab your custom promolink by accessing the offer’s Affiliate Support Page, which is found on the bottom, right corner of each offer listing. 

After that, promote it as you please through email, social media or other marketing channels.

Once your first promo campaign is set up, you can track its performance within Digistore24.

5. Learn How to Navigate the Digistore24 Business Cockpit

Learn How to Navigate the Digistore24 Business Cockpit

Now that your affiliate link is up and running, it’s time to look at the stats & numbers to find out how it’s performing.

Your Business Cockpit is the hub of all of your business activities within Digistore24. 

Once you log into your account, you will be able to see the menu items for the Business Cockpit, Marketplace, Account and Reports.

This is the center of your business, and you can decide what metrics are displayed based on what’s most important for you and your goals so you can make data-driven decisions easily.

Top 4 Metrics Every Digistore24 Affiliate Should Keep an Eye On

  • Sales Revenue - How much money are you generating? This is the first metric you need to be analyzing.
  • Clicks - How many clicks are you getting? Generally speaking, the higher the clicks you get, the higher the revenue.
  • Earnings Per Click (EPC) - This metric tells you how much you’ve earned on average for every time your affiliate link is clicked. While it depends on your traffic source, I always aim to have at least over $1 EPCs.
  • RPM (Ad Revenue Per 1000 Impressions) - This gives you a better idea of whether your efforts are truly working and performing at an optimal level, or if you need to make any adjustments. I would suggest you start out by focusing on the first three metrics above but eventually move on to RPM, which is probably the best overall metric to determine if you’re truly maximizing your earnings with your campaigns.

6. Make Use of The Many Digistore24 Conversion Tools

Digistore24 is the King of Conversions!

Our many conversion-focused features helped countless Digistore24 affiliates & vendors increase their conversion rate and, of course, sales.

We invested close to $10 million dollars in our tech in 2022 alone to create some of the most unique & sophisticated features that work hand in hand to improve conversion rates, including:

  • Many flexible payment options, including PayPal, Sezzle, and Venmo - offering more payment options to end customers will always lead to more conversions and sales. And this is especially true when it comes to PayPal, where we have seen that almost 45% of transactions come through PayPal, especially for older demographics.
  • Additionally, “Buy Now, Pay Later” options like Sezzle are known to increase conversions by upwards of 20-30%. Imagine experiencing such a significant uplift in your overall conversion rate without having to make any changes to your sales page or traffic strategies.
  • Plus, we offer localized payment processing. This means transactions are done using local currencies, and processing is done through local banks when selling in different markets around the world. This leads to significantly higher acceptance rates, less declines, more conversions - and of course, more sales. And no more horror stories of banks holding your money!
  • Our one-of-its-kind Cart Builder, which allows you to fully customize, test & optimize your order forms - whether that be adding specific branding, trust badges, various layout changes, and more. Fully responsive order forms are some of the best converting in the industry!

And the list goes on!
