What Do You Need To Check Before Joining An Affiliate Program?

There are some issues you need to check before you'll decide to join and promote an affiliate program:

# Does the program offer a free way to join
without forcing you to buy their product or service?

# Look for other affiliates to check if
they have had any difficulties with the program.

# Check if the product or the service is related to your target audience?

# Does the vendor notify you by e-mail about your sales?

# Does they offer more products so you can get more sales
from the same customer?

# Can the vendor help you 24/7 online or offline?

# What is the commission percentage of each sale?

# In what form they pay and how often will you receive your commission payment?

# Does the vendor credit you for sales if the customer will come back after
a while and then buy the product.

# Does the vendor pay you just once for the sale or he pays you as long as the customer stay in his program?

# Do they provide you with proven sales material like - links,
banners, classified ads, sales letters etc.

# Will they permit you create your own promotional ads.

# Do they let you access to an online sales stats page?

# What is the system they track your sales?

# Does the vendor pay commission for sales of customers who sign up under you?

# How many different ordering options they offer to the customers, so in return you won't lose sales.

Check the points I mentioned above very carefully before you start and you'll not waste your time and money by trying to sell a program without any benefit.
