In articles I read, you will get higher commission if you promote products with price $100+ or above. But its good to choose with $10 products or under?

In my point view, you will get more sales or easier to get orders with lower cost products. Any thoughts?

Well Harry, you can sell any product at any price if you sell to the right person in the right way regardless to the cost.

You could sell ice to an Eskimo if you packaged it right.

That said, it's definitely better to promote high ticket items for sure. The higher the price the more commission you earn.

If you sell low ticket items for around $10 each with a commission of about 20%.

You'll only earn $2 each time. You'll need to sell 500 of them to earn $1000.

Where as if you sell items in the much more expensive price range that sell for $1000 each.

And you sell 100 of them with a commission of 20% ($200) you'll earn $20,000.

Imagine if you sold 100 that sell for $5000 each with a 20% commission of $1000. That's $100,000.

Do that another 10 times and you've made your first million! :D

I promote lower-cost stuff and higher-priced products online, and while it would seems like (in theory) that lesser expensive products would just be selling like hot cakes, that has not been my personal experience. People who aren't sure whether they want to buy something won't do it -- regardless of how much it costs. That's why I like to stick to things that pay out at least like $20 USD or more. I mean, the work is the same, so it should at least be worth it.

This is kinda like asking "Which is heavier, a pound of feathers or a pound of lead?" If its a $10 item or a $100 item.. the effort on your end is exactly the same. Depending on what you are selling on Amazon you could be making as little as 4% ( or less in some cases ) so why would you then target the lessor priced item?

When developing a Amazon site i personally like to use the prosociate plugin.. it allows you to basically set up a store and use woocommerce to its fullest advantage. If you are selling DVD players as an example,you could push upsells of HDMI cables or the like. it really does help in increasing the overall purchase price.

You should try aiming at promoting products that cost $100+...which means you atleast a decent commission for the products sold. Try to lookout for low competition niches with such high paying commissions. I personally am not a big fan of Amazon associates as their cookie duration last only 1 day.
