Dear friends, when it comes to promoting affiliate programs we all follow a certain defined process. We first go to google.com ,type affiliate programs in search field. When results get displayed we look for "high paying" affiliate programs. By "high paying" I mean those who pay 25% commissions.
Then we visit each and every website listed and join programs becuse they are free! to join. We put all sorts of banners and text ads on our links page and expect to see a check in our mail box next morning.
Well, I am here going to reveal a very different way of promoting affiliate programs. Let us revise process one-by-one.
Step 1> Search for affiliate programs with your favorite search engine. Look for only those affiliate programs whcich have products which interests you. For example if you are interested in "radio controlled airplanes" then look for such products first. Don't start with promoting "herbal shampoos" or "yoga cd's" just because they pay 40% commissions.
Since you already know a little about rc planes it wiil be much easier for you to promote various aspects of product.
So when selecting affiliate prgram keep in mind following sequence
a)Product which you know about or are interested in. b)Qulaity of product. To know quality of product it is advisavle to buy product yourself first. c)The organisation associated with product. Look for promotional material they are giving to affiliates. This shows confidence of manufacturer in their own product. d)Commission structure. Some webmasters provide 2 tier commission structure. Some have a threshhold amout before affiliates get paid. Here is a nice place to sart with. This is a list which contains 50 affiliate Programs That Pay AT LEAST 50% commissions.
