For those that decide to get into the passive business of affiliate marketing, it is important that you know what exactly you are promoting and what you are going to make from it.
This will help you to decide which opportunities you want to get involved with.
Keep in mind which industries interest you or what your niche is, as you do not want to promote health items if everything else you promote is about technology.
You need to know what type of commission you will make from a product sale. These can vary widely from 8 to 75% of the value of the sale that is made.
Don’t forget that the company who makes the product is also promoting it, and that a lot of people will go directly to the manufacturer to purchase.
Another factor is to know what the pay structure is like.
Will you only make money on sales you make personally, or will you also make money on your referrals? You can promote your affiliate opportunity and sign other people up under your name.
Ideally you want to make something on their sales as well too, as they are likely going to be looking for you to help them to become successful. You deserve to be paid for your time and training that you give them.
Make sure to check out the reputation of the affiliates that you decide to become an affiliate for.
Does this program have a good reputation for a quality product and good customer service?
If it something that you can feel comfortable promoting to other people?
Do they stand behind their product if there is an issue with it?
You can find affiliate programs in many different industries, and for many different products. If the one you found does not look too genuine, move on to the next one.
You should have no issue finding something that will work out for you.
Watch for programs that do not pay a decent amount of compensation. Chances are a program that only pays out 5% is not likely worth the time it takes to determine if it is worthwhile.
It is recommended that you look for programs that payout at least 30%.
You also want to see if the program requires you to meet a minimum quota or a sales target. Depending on where you are at with your platform for promoting your affiliates, you likely will want to avoid those. Even those that are having great success may choose to pass them by as well.
When it comes to affiliate marketing, there is a great potential for passive income once you are set up.
Not only can you make money off your own personal sales, but you can earn money off those that you get to enroll in the affiliate program as well.
What do you think? What’s your passive business?
