Finding An Affiliate Program That Works For You
Outlines exactly how to seek out the perfect affiliate program to be in and tells you why.
Okay, so you're looking for an affiliate program that actually works for YOU? There are of course many ways to go about doing this, but I would say the most simple way would be by making a comparison chart. You have the compare programs and decide which one will be the most profitable for you. Compare payouts, compare payment frequency, compare how trusted the network is with their payments, and probably the most important one to consider is CONVERSION RATIO. If you send three hundred people to that page and it doesn't convert into any sales guess what? You need to switch to promoting something else. Some sites are able to convert 1/20 visitors into buyers (mine, as an example). These are the things you have to think about as a potential affiliate. One thing that is, surprisingly, overlooked as well yet is HUGE in making money as an affiliate marketing. Your niche. The niche you are marketing to should be carefully selected. We talk about conversion ratios and this stems from the people that you deliver to the site actually being interested in the topic. Give me one visitor that's into my niche over twenty that aren't any day. These turn into sales, and in turn, money in your pocket. So make a pros and cons list, or a comparison chart. Far too many people that I see just blindly go into whichever affiliate program they see without really thinking it through or comparing other programs. This step truly is a much bigger part of your success than you realize right now. If you don't pick the proper affiliate program for your needs then you will die like the rest of the failed affiliates. I cannot stress that point to you enough. Your comparison chart should lay each program out something like this: Conversion Ratio: Payout per sale: Niche: Network: Frequency of Payments/How long it takes: In other words, by looking at the programs on paper you can easily pick out which one may be better for you and what you are trying to accomplish in the field of being an affiliate marketer. You can't take the decision of what affiliate program to promote lightly, because it will determine your success or demise in this business. And let's face it here and now, success breeds success. I guarantee at least fifty percent of all affiliate marketers who failed picked the wrong program for them, and it left them unmotivated and defeated. You can succeed, I know it. You simply have to know what you want and create a plan that works in order to get it. Best of luck to you!
