					Choosing the Best Online Affiliate Program
By Guido Mueller from Wealthy Affiliate Program As Affiliate Marketer you sometimes have a hard time to choose the best online affiliate program (this here is to learn IM). I personally like to choose first my niche, then research my competition and see what they offer to verify the quality of those programs. Obviously, you have to stay highly relevant to what your audience likes and is interested into. For example if you have a site in the Golf industry, then you should offer all related to golf, from caddies over golf caps to irons. But the key to success is if you don't promote those products blatantly to your visitors, in stead you provide great content on your site which people love to read, spending time on your site and re-visit your site for more. The affiliate offers have to be strategically position on top, right and left where people can click at a link for more information about a specific item. Great and successful are reviews about specific products as people love to compare products before they buy. Some tips in respect about choosing a specific niche - Pick a Hot and Valuable niche Demand and value are for me the main factors to enter into a niche. If I don't know enough about the niche I go and research in forums about it. I NEVER decide a niche based on passion, my knowledge or similar. Good niches are those which make you money, period. Always check out if there are Magazines in a niche, forums, if there are AdWords advertisers and if there are other websites with a commercial proposition (affiliate sites). - Knowing the Niche/Product As I told above, you should research the niche and your targeted audience to know exactly what they want and what benefits the products you promote will deliver. If a product has some negative

points, mention those. Be honest and don't recommend for the sake of making a buck or two. Honesty will pay off and you will only be recognized as an authority if you are explaining all the benefits and as well the problems a consumer will have after purchasing it. The better you make your review including statistics, testimonials etc. , the better your recommendation will be accepted. - Great Sales Copy Your sales copy is the key point if a visitor will take action or not. You must get a good knowledge about writing great copy which sells. This is a art and my best recommendation here is -read a lot good sales copy and learn from the others and -get a course to learn it. - Guarantees From a consumer point of view, buying something online is always a risky business. Will the site deliver after I paid? Will the product be like offered? What if it's a used item but they offered a new one? How can I return it if it's not like offered? Will I get my money back if I return it? How to claim a refund in case the product brakes during the period of the warranty?

And so on. See how many doubt's they have. Answer ALL of them, explain in detail what they get, how they get it and what warranties are included. Make it Stupid simple to understand and take away as much barriers as possible. Off course you have to be sure that your merchant back's you up here and actually does offer what you write in your copy. Again, research this well and if a merchant has problems in this respect, drop it and get another one.

- Provide Contact Information’s You need to provide on your and on the merchants site a physical address plus all possible contact info. Your visitors will trust you more if you do so and Google as well index sites better with a contact page. - Affiliate Statistics You have to know what happens at your site and at the merchant’s site if a visitor clicks at your link. Google Analytics provides great statistics for your site but you have to rely on your merchant’s realtime statistics to know what's happen at a visit. Without to know how many visitors will buy, and what they buy etc. will makes it impossible for you to improve your work. - How to find Best Online Affiliate Program To find the best online affiliate program is easy. All major affiliate networks like Clickbank, Commission Junction, Amazon etc. provide statistics showing what are the Bestseller’s in a given category. In Clickbank this is called gravity, while in other networks this is called "Network Earnings" what shows a value per visitor or a colored bar. Brand new products don't have a sales history so those can be hidden at the bottom of the list. Always check out of there are some hidden gems which only a few affiliates do promote. This is my personal recommendation but never promote junk products. If you burn your name on the market it will be twice as hard for you to get back and gain trust. The TRUST factor is absolutely imperative and your reputation is what makes your online business become a successful one. - How to Get The Best Affiliate Training There are a ton of programs and books available which can give you some specific information’s to parts of Affiliate Marketing.
