Choosing an affiliate partner-
Keep some important points in mind when choosing your affiliate partner:
* Don't partner with a company that charges a fee or requires a minimum level of sales to waive a fee. An affiliate program should not cost you a dime. Programs with conditions are little more than pyramid schemes and should be avoided. * Do choose a company with which you already have a working relationship. If you've worked with a large supplier or customer over a period of time, you know whether they are trustworthy or not, and have a good idea of kind of reputation they have in local or national business community. That gives you opportunity to avoid partners who are not ethical. * Choose a partner that will enhance value of your site to your customers. By making a link to a company on your Web site, you are making a statement about quality of that company to your customer base, your most important corporate asset. You don't want to jeopardize goodwill you've built with your customers, so choose your partners wisely.
A well-planned affiliate-marketing program can accomplish two important goals for your business without increasing costs. The first and most important is real opportunity to grow revenue. Second, by aligning with right partner, visitors to your site may find it a good jumping-off point to rest of Internet. That could turn your site into a "portal," which could help get your customers into habit of visiting your Web site more frequently.
