Getting paid all depends upon how the affiliate program is set up. Some merchants will run their own affiliate program. They’ll have special types of software that assigns each affiliate marketer a special link that’s used in promoting the product.
The software will track sales of every marketer and the merchant will pay the commission on a periodic basis using either PayPal or another method of payment.
Selecting products or services
Your income is directly tied to how well your selected product or service sells, and the size of the commission you earn, which makes it very important that you choose carefully when it comes to choosing the affiliate merchant you’ll be partnering with.
- Choose programs that you aren’t embarrassed to promote and programs that you’ll feel comfortable recommending to your family and friends.
- Select products to promote that you understand and are already familiar with. This way, you’ll be able to write better ads without having to strain yourself coming up with the right things to say.
- You should only promote products and services for companies who have gone through the trouble to provide you with training programs and sales aids such as banners and other marketing materials that you can either use directly or model the one you own after.
- Be on the lookout for programs with commission rates no less than 50%. You should give preference to programs that pay commission on multiple levels, which means you’ll also have to earn commissions on sales made by people who buy the products through your link then go on and become affiliates themselves later on.
