How to profit from promoting affiliate programs

1. Build your site around a theme that you like.

Becoming a webmaster will take a lot of time on your part. Make sure to build your site around a theme that you enjoy and can spend time on first.

Think about the topics that you like best and about which you know a lot. This will allow you to easily write about that topic to your visitors and share your knowledge.

2. Keep narrowing your focus until you find your niche that makes your site unique. For example, instead of sports, make your site about your favorite team, or instead of marketing, choose to make your site about ezine publishing.

3. Once you have decided on a theme for your site, you have also selected your target audience and are ready to join affiliate programs that sell products to that audience.

4. When you decide to join affiliate programs, look for affiliate programs that offer a line of products; This will allow you to earn more commissions when your referrals come back and ask for something more.

5. Choose affiliate programs that offer a two-tier commission structure, where you are paid a commission on the sales of the people you refer to the affiliate program, or affiliate programs that offer you the opportunity to earn residual income.

6. Track your promotional efforts. This is essential to help you identify which ad copy is driving the most sales and which marketing techniques are most profitable.

7. Generate repeat traffic to your site by making your site a valuable resource.

Publish your own articles, tutorials, e-books, your ezine archive, as well as promotional materials provided by the affiliate programs you have joined.

8. Keep your site regularly updated with new material.

9. Write recommendations.

Create a product page or recommended links where you share with your visitors the benefits of the products you promote - how those products have helped you.

10. To increase your commissions by promoting two-tier affiliate programs, also provide a top rated affiliate programs page where you recommend your affiliate opportunities to your visitors.
