What Makes You Sign Up as an Affiliate?

by Steve Mount 11 replies
What do you look for when you're considering signing up as an affiliate for something?

Are you looking at the payout percentage? Overall payout per sale? The quality of the product?

In other words, what "seals the deal" for you when you come across something that someone needs help promoting?

    I'm interested in this topic too ...

    Unfortunately I'm in the same situation as you are, trying to setup an affiliate program.

      Most of the courses and ebooks tell you to look at the payout and payout percentage. While I agree, and like to find a high paying program, product quality/congruence with my market is my number one concern.

      Warmly,

          I look at the type of product is first, how large the market is, how I can penetrate the market, and if their sales page looks like it can convert well.

          I will then look at how much the affiliate payout is, and if that amount is around $30.

          I'm not too concerned about promotional materials since I ago my own route with that.

    Personally, I would look at what sort of products my list want or need or both. (there is a demand at least)

    Then, I will be looking at quality of product. I may even email the product owner on sales page conversion. (but this basic info can be seen at clickbank marketplace)

    Sometimes, I even look at the testimonials given for the product. =)

    Cheers,
    John

      Before I choose an affiliate product, I will first want to make sure that it is in a hungry market.. for me i am not a niche finder expert, so I will prefer to promote products that is in a big enough market (and hungry) for affiliates to make commissions.

      I will also visit the sales page to make sure that it is well-writen and convincing enough to attract buyers.

      1 more thing that I will always check is if the merchant excepts other types of payment method. I have seen clickbank products that offer other payment mode, like offline mode, etc... which I think an affiliate will lose some deserved commissions.

        assuming it's a fit for my niche, a decent product, etc...

        I look at the sales letter. It's got to be good. The sales copy needs to be strong, the formatting of the page needs to be pleasing, and I want to see good testimonials and other forms of 'proof'.

        I really want to see at least $30 for a sale.. If it's less, then I'm only going to promote it late in my autoresponder series, if at all.

        I really don't care about any of the CB stats, and my best money makers aren't anywhere near the top in their CB categories.
