First step is to make sure everything on your website is in perfect order.
In this initial section on finding affiliates, I want to let you know about the work you'll need to accomplish before you even get started. First, you'll want to perfect your website. Look it over and make sure that everything is where it belongs. Check to be certain there are no mistakes in grammar. Check the spelling on every page of the site to make certain there are no errors. The worst thing that can happen is for someone to visit your site and be immediately turned off by plain errors you've neglected to fix. Your site will need to be perfect.
Once you've checked and fixed all the mistakes, you'll need to do some research. Locate all of the affiliate directories you can and make a list. These are the sites you will want to visit for information and links to the affiliate programs in the areas where you seek listings. You might wonder why this is necessary. You want to be listed in as many places as possible, because others will be looking for affiliates and most likely come across your site in their search. Most of the affiliate programs directories in existence will think about placing a free link to your business on their site. It will help you to know what the rest are doing so you can surpass them.
