Okay, so you have been looking at affiliate programs for a while now. Your inbox is filling up with all these advertisements and you just donít know how to pick right program.
How do you know which program is going to bring best profit?
Well, I personally believe that a lot of income is created from effort an affiliate marketer puts into a program. But I do have a few pointers as to picking best one.
1. Commission. You need a program that will pay you a good commission rate. It should pay you at least 20% of each sale. A good rate is 50% and anything above that is ideal. You should also look for how often they pay. Some programs pay you twice a month and some only once a month. Most programs also only pay you when you have earned a base amount.
2. Attraction. Is website attractive? Or will your customers leave your site without even reading. The site needs to easy to read, but not boring. Also you donít want to pick a site that is full of garbage, advertising an array of different subjects. Your site needs to filled with common ground. Also make sure sight doesnít seem to be screaming for attention (lots of large, bold lettering).
3. Support. What is support for your program like? Do they have a good list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), a contact email address with a quick response (24 - 72 hours is good)? Any more than 3 days for a response is too long. Some programs even offer live chat. Now that is good!
4. Your Statistics. The program should offer an automated and immediate reaction to your statistics. They should automatically contact you when you receive a client, prospect, lead, customer or when you make a sale, it should also be ready to view in your downline as soon as you have knowledge of sale etc.
