Which Affiliate Program Makes You the Most Money?

Written by Denise Maling


The Internet is an awesome phenomenon. Think about it. To become an affiliate for a Fortune 500 company can cost thousands of dollars and takes time. The Internet has opened a whole new world of money making opportunities. I should know. I left my consulting business to become a partner with AIS Media.

It seems like just yesterday, but a year has already passed. During this time, I have seen many programs to make money come across my email. I guess Iíve become somewhat immune to these offers, as cynical as it may sound been there done that.

When I was asked to joinrepparttar company, one of my main responsibilities was to increaserepparttar 102577 closing ratio of applications to actual set up merchants. In my endeavor, I experienced some disappointment. Certainly not in our closing ratio (it went from .002% to an average of 18%), but what I was finding inrepparttar 102578 way of competing programs astounded me. Programs offering from $50.00 per account to over $250.00, quite a difference.

Sure I, like everyone else, want to make as much as possible for my efforts. Keeping that in mind, let me tell you how we got here. Fourteen months ago, we launched an affiliate program that offered merchant services (online credit card processing) and we outsourcedrepparttar 102579 leads (a lot of companies do this) to what we thought were several good companies.

Our experience was horrible and within two months, we were inrepparttar 102580 process of bringing it in-house. What was so bad about outsourcing? The companies to which we were sending leads were closing only .002%! Sure they were offering us $300.00 per sale, however they werenít paying us on allrepparttar 102581 sales they made. I am still receiving emails from merchants who signed up with us, yet we were never paidrepparttar 102582 commission on these merchants!

Get High Commissions from your Affiliate Programs!

A good way to tell ifrepparttar affiliate program you belong to is serious about their affiliate program commissions isrepparttar 102576 percentage they are paying you. If someone is offering you 10% commission, and they are keepingrepparttar 102577 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 102578 2nd tier. Thatís 55%! They only keep 45% and itís from this that they take their costs. Either theyíve 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.
