The great thing about free to join affiliate programs is that you
can really give sponsor a test drive before you decide to join
his or her downline. Most affiliate webpages have contact details
for webpage owner, who would be your sponsor after you
join program. So after you decide you want to join a
particular program, especially if it is not free to join, I suggest
you test your potential sponsor to ensure you will get a good
service if you join their downline. Ask them all questions
you have and seek all help you need and if you receive good
and valuable service then you can go ahead and signup.
If you are unhappy with answers or help given, or you
don't receive a reply then try another affiliate's page. The best
way to do this is by entering main URL of company and
in most cases you'll be randomly sent to website of an affiliate.
Ask same questions and also note how quickly sponsor
responds each time because you don't want to signup under
someone who takes one or two weeks to respond to your emails.
Keep trying different affiliate pages until you find a potential
sponsor you know will give you support you need.
If it is a free program with an upgrade option I suggest you
signup for free initially and continuing testing your sponsor to
ensure you have indeed chosen right one. Some sponsors
will respond to emails in an attempt to encourage their downline
to upgrade and after they upgrade help dissipates, but only
the genuinely helpful sponsors will be able to pass rigorous
tests that involve offering lots of help and answering lots of
Your initial email may receive a good or average response but
after that sponsor may become impatient and not bother
replying or may send an inadequate reply. That would
obviously be your cue to find another sponsor because you need
a sponsor who will be willing and patient enough to properly
answer your questions and genuinely help you. That is what
Multi-level marketing is about, achieving success by helping
those below you to succeed.
1) Before joining affiliate programs send an email to owner of
the webpage or ad you saw. Ask all questions you have
and seek to establish what help you'd receive after joining. Make
a note of quality of responses and times it takes to
receive a response.
2) If unhappy with potential sponsor go to company's
main URL and you will be randomly assigned to another
sponsor's webpage. Ask same questions and decide if
you want to signup under this person. Keep repeating this step
until you find a sponsor you are happy with.
3) Signup. If program has a free option choose that option
first and continue seeking help from your sponsor. If you are
happy with service you receive from your sponsor then
upgrade otherwise ask company to reassign you to another
