8 basic rules to choose the right affiliate program

Joining an affiliate program is a great way to start earning a considerable income on the Internet without many of the inconvenience of managing your own business. But the problem is. There are so many affiliate programs for you. I recommend that you follow this rule before choosing an affiliate program.

1. Find a high quality product or service

Remember that any recommendation you make will be directly reflected in you. If you recommend a high quality product, the people you recommend will always trust you and be interested in future recommendations you make. If you recommend a poor quality product, and I guarantee you will probably hesitate to act on any offer you recommend.

Do not become greedy. Just recommend products that you really believe in.

2. Look for a program that offers the best commissions.

I think it is perfectly reasonable that you expect to be paid 30% to 50% of the profits of each product sold. 5% to 10% is very low. You should look for companies that understand the "lifetime value" of the new customers you refer to and that value your efforts.

Just consider joining programs that show a similar level of respect for your affiliates.

3. Make sure they have a high sales conversion rate.

Make sure the affiliate program is converting a reasonable number of visitors into sales. Otherwise, your efforts directing traffic to your website will be completely wasted. A conversion rate of 1% (1 in 100 visitors) is quite good, more than 2% is better.

4. Make sure you are credited for every sale you make.

You should find out what type of tracking software the Affiliate Program uses that you are interested in joining. companies that only track orders at line, and this means that you will never get credit for between 5% and 10% of your affiliate sales!

Make sure they have a high sales conversion rate and good tracking software.

5. They should allow you to access your sales statistics in real time.

What I mean is that the Affiliate Program that you join must give you a special username and password that you can use to access your own personal affiliate sales information directly on your website. Many affiliate programs have done this, you don't have to worry about that, but in case you don't, you should reconsider joining them.

6. Look for a program that teaches u

A good affiliate program will provide everything you need to succeed. They will provide you with traffic-generating banners, text links and recommendation letter templates. They will tell you what techniques work well in what circumstances.

Find an affiliate program that is equally dedicated to educating your affiliates.

7. Make sure they have a good reputation.

I still feel that I should mention the importance of doing business with a reputable company. I know many people who have worked very hard, have made many sales for a company, but they have never been paid or forced to wait months and months to get their money, I have also been there. If you have any concerns about a company with which you are thinking of doing business, ask for references and perform some checks before joining them.

8. Be sure to read all contracts and agreements.

Before joining any affiliate program, just be sure to read all contracts and agreements very carefully. Pay close attention to the exclusivity clauses in the agreement. Be careful that any affiliate agreement or contract you sign does not restrict it.
