Many millionaires have been made through the use of affiliate products. And millions of dollars worth of affiliate products are bought and sold every day on the Internet. Are you getting your share of affiliate profits? The affiliate products that you decide to promote can have a major impact on whether or not you make money.
Before recommending an affiliate program, you should research it thoroughly. Ideally, you should test out the product yourself. However, sometimes this is difficult, especially if you are just starting out and have not yet made any money.
It is important to recommend the highest quality products to your site visitors and subscribers. If you can't test out the product personally, you can go to one of the large forums. Digital Point and Warrior Forum are 2 good places to start your research. Both of these forums have areas where you can learn about various affiliate products.
Go to the forums and check out postings regarding the affiliate product you are considering. Look for comments about it. If there are negative comments by a number of people, drop the product from consideration. No amount of profit is worth the potential problems of a product that has numerous complaints. It is the easiest way to turn your subscribers into non-subscribers.
If there are no postings on the product you are researching, start a new thread and ask if anyone has some experience with your product. Tell them that you are considering using it as an affiliate and you would appreciate feedback. I have always found forum members to be very helpful in this regard.
By doing this type of research before recommending an affiliate product can save yourself lots of problems and allow you to maximize your income. A little research upfront can save you lots of aggravation later. Do you want to learn more about making money online? Get my free ebook on how to make money every day!
