Finding the Best and Most Lucrative
by Troy Pentico
One of the questions that is asked the most by both the
beginning and experienced Internet Marketer is, What are
the best affiliate programs?
With literally thousands of affiliate programs on the
Internet to choose from it is no surprise that people
have problems deciding on the best ones to join and promote.
Today I am going to focus on things you need to take into
consideration when trying to tell the difference between
an outstanding affiliate program and the ones you should
avoid like the plague.
Target Markets That You Have Some Knowledge In
When you know something about the market you are entering
into it will save you time and money because you will
reduce the amount of research that will need to be done
in finding products that target customers in that market
If you already know the market you won't be spending a
lot of time researching what the market needs because
you will recognize these products when you find them.
Focus Your Efforts on Programs in HOT Markets
The best programs to promote are not only in hot markets
but they also offer products that are needed by the target
customers in that particular market but also are unique
products as well so your competition is at a minimum.
Look For Affiliate Programs with High Pay Outs
The best ways to promote affiliate programs will be the
same no matter what the price of the product. When you
sell High Ticket items you will be using the
same marketing strategies that you would use for products
with small price tags.
So the question you need to ask yourself is Why
am I wasting my time and advertising dollars promoting
products that will take me double or triple the effort
to make good money?
It is not only common sense but it is simple math as well.
If one affiliate program pays $20 dollar per sale and
another pays you $40 dollars per sale it is going to take
you twice as many sales to generate the same profits from
the first program as it will the second.
Seek Out Income Streams
If it cost you $1 dollar in advertising to gain one paying
customer which would you choose:
1.A one time sale customer that you will have to continually
promote other similar products to on a month to month
basis so they spend additional money to increase your
2.A customer that pays a reoccurring membership fee every
month that you automatically receive a percentage from.
You don't even have to bother answering the question for
me. I already know your answer. If at all possible you
want to focus your promotional efforts on the programs
that are going to offer you the highest return (your commissions)
for the lowest investment (your advertising dollars).
Some businesses that offer multiple products will offer
their affiliates life-time commissions. So if you were
the first affiliate to get a customer to buy a product
from them you will receive commissions on every product
they buy in the future from them no matter how they ended
up being referred back to the site. These are also very
nice programs to put your efforts into.
Start Your Own Mini-Affiliate Program
Some affiliate programs setup what is called a Two-Tier
commission schedule. With these programs you not only
receive commissions on sales that you have referred to
the program but you can recruit other affiliates to the
program and receive commissions on their referred sales
The bottom-line is the more of these principles an affiliate
program follows the more deserving of your time and effort
