"Affiliate Programs to Avoid"

Written by Rosalind Gardner

Continued from page 1

That's not good. My customers are literally my bread and butter. Giving them what they want and expect is how I stay in business. Paying for traffic that I send to a merchant site where there is nothing to buy, will put me out of business.

(This is how a membership site should be structured. When starting a dating service,repparttar merchant pays for advertising to bring people to their site. To entice visitors to sign up as members, he will initially offer his services for fr*ee. Whenrepparttar 102485 database is large enough to attract paying customers,repparttar 102486 affiliate program manager then invites potential affiliates to join their program.)

Although my friend's program had already struck out for my customers and me, I was still curious, so I kept on looking.

Next I clicked on a link labeled 'Dating Resources'. Expecting to find Internet dating tips and advice, I found links and banners pointing to Lavalife, FriendFinder and other affiliated dating sites instead. When I asked him about placing affiliate programs on his site, my friend said he simply wanted to supplement his income untilrepparttar 102487 dating service got *rolling*. I can understand his motivation. However, what he doesn't understand isrepparttar 102488 concept of customer 'hijacking'.

As an affiliate, you pay good money to get visitors to your site. You presell your merchants' products and expectrepparttar 102489 merchant to honor their end ofrepparttar 102490 bargain by makingrepparttar 102491 sale and sending your commission check. You don't pay forrepparttar 102492 merchant to send YOUR customers to THEIR affiliated merchants.

I didn't need to look any further. I told my friend that I would hold off on signing up and why. Fortunately, he understood and has already alleviated some ofrepparttar 102493 problems I mentioned.

Knowing when NOT to sign up for an affiliate program can sometimes be a tough call. However, you can simplifyrepparttar 102494 process considerably. Put yourself inside your customer's head. Ifrepparttar 102495 product won't work for them,repparttar 102496 program strikes out. Simple as that.

Now, If you want to go back to HITPULSE click onrepparttar tab torepparttar 102484 left.

To go to WEBMASTERQUEST, click onrepparttar 102485 right tab. (Also, you can scroll through tabs by pressingrepparttar 102486 F3 key.)

A Windows file window will open. Give your group a name, like "10000Hits", and click Save.

If you have a slow connection and/or not very powerful computer, opening eight to ten pages atrepparttar 102493 same time may be too much.

In this case, try surfing fewer pages until your computer is running fast enough that you are happy with it. My suggestion would be to group them together in groups of four which seems to berepparttar 102494 most practical.
