Affiliate programs are a great way to make money, if properly implemented on your site.|
When joining an affiliate programs there are certain things you should do to ensure your success. First, build your site around your affiliate program. Do not just have a bunch of links and banners on your site and nothing else. You need to have good content so your visitors will use your site as a resource. Also try to limit the amount of products you sell. Find a niche that you are comfortable with and sell a few products that are within that niche. If you have too many products, visitors be confused and leave without purchasing.
Make sure that the programs you join are making your work worthwhile. Join programs that give you a high payout for each sale and at least 25-30% on commission for each sale. Your product should be something that you would feel comfortable purchasing and recommending to your visitors. Also, promote your site all the time. Use a newsletter to keep your mailing list informed of new products and articles on your site. Promote to search engines. Build your reciprocal link list. After building your site you should spend 90% of your time on marketing so you can get the visitors you need to make you efforts worth while.
The most important thing is not to give up. If you don't see results within a few weeks keep plugging away. 80% of affiliates make almost nothing with their programs, so if you've seen even a small commission check, you're already ahead of the game.
