Written by David McKenzie

A good way to tell ifrepparttar affiliate program you belong to is serious about their affiliate program commissions isrepparttar 102566 percentage they are paying you. If someone is offering you 10% commission, and they are keepingrepparttar 102567 rest, then you need to ask yourself "Should I really be in this affiliate program?".

One affiliate program I have joined pays out 45% commission to their affiliates and another 10% torepparttar 102568 2nd tier. That's 55%! They only keep 45% and it's from this that they take their costs. Either they've gone completely mad or they are very smart! I suspect they are very smart.

By paying such high affiliate program commissions they are attracting many affiliates to their programs. This means they can sell a higher volume. With a higher volume of sales they can afford to give away such a high commission.

Secrets to a higher "Conversion Ratio"

Written by David McKenzie

As an affiliate promoting affiliate programs you need to know repparttar conversion ratio of each program you belong to.

It is something you have control over.

But what exactly is a conversion ratio?

For affiliate programs,repparttar 102565 conversion ratio (or CR) isrepparttar 102566 number of visitors that click through your affiliate link compared torepparttar 102567 number of sales you make.

For instance if you had 100 visitors to one of your affiliate programs you were promoting and got 1 sale then your CR would be 1%.

One sale for every 50 visitors would be a CR of 2% and one sale for every 200 visitors would be a CR of 0.5%.

So what would be a good conversion ratio for an affiliate program?

Well after much research I have seen that a 1% CR is quite acceptable. A CR of 0.5% would be a little low and if you have a CR of 3% then you are on to a winning affiliate program.

Depending on what you are promoting your goal should be to achieve a CR of 1% to 2%. But how?

To get a higher CR you need to concentrate onrepparttar 102568 following factors:

1. Join quality affiliate programs that have products or services that are proven sellers onrepparttar 102569 internet.

2. Become an affiliate of a HOT selling product or service including marketing, travel, health & fitness and e-books.
