Some Important Factors To Think Over Before Choosing An Affiliate Program

by Ray Cheff

There are many factors to consider when deciding which products to sell online. With thousands of products and programs to choose from, it can be a very difficult decision to make. Here are some factors to think over before choosing an affiliate program.

Of course it is important to think about how much you will be paid for selling a particular product. Each offer will pay you either a flat fee per sale or a commission. Since you will be investing either time or money in your efforts to make sales, you should consider the cost of promoting the product and determine whether the commission for each sale is worth the effort it will take to sell it.

Payment frequency is another thing you'll want to consider. Most companies seem to prefer a monthly payment plan but if you want to receive your payments more often, you can find affiliate programs that issue payments bi-weekly or even weekly. You should also make sure that you can receive payment from the company in your country. Some programs are only open to people who live in certain countries. There are even a few programs that will not accept people in certain US states because of their tax laws.

Make sure you check to see what the minimum affiliate payout is before you join. Some programs require you to earn $100 or more before you can receive a check. Although this makes it easier for the company to administer the program, it also means you might have a hard time selling enough of their product to get paid.

If you want to establish a recurring income for yourself, it's a good idea to look for products that will continue paying you after you've sold them. There are two ways to do this. You could either find a company that pays commissions for future sales made to the customers you referred or you could sell products on a subscription plan that offer monthly sales commissions.
