Chapter 2 - Choosing Your Affiliate Program
There are many affiliate programs available to you on the net. However, to improve
your profitability as an affiliate you need to choose the programs you market wisely,
as not all affiliate programs are created equal.
Tips For Joining Affiliate Programs
Before you merrily join any affiliate program it pays to consider which affiliate
programs are the best to join.
These are the crucial program features that I consider necessary inclusions in any
affiliate program.
The affiliate program must have a generous payment structure. For me, this
means a high commission payment, which is a high percentage of the purchase
price - nothing under a 25% commission.
Make sure the affiliate program you’re about to join has a professional looking
site. You don’t want to send visitors to a site that looks unprofessional.
Make sure that the affiliate program has a comprehensive affiliate statistics
page, which lists the number of click-throughs, the number of sales, and the
amount you’ve earned to date. This should be broken down by month.
Make sure that these affiliate statistics are “real time”. This means statistics
which are updated automatically and immediately. You do not want to find out
today about a sale you made a week ago.
