Wide Number Of Affiliate Marketing Platforms

There are many different affiliate marketing platforms out there and it is important to select the right ones for your site. Luckily you don’t have to limit yourself to just one, you can have 1, 5 or even more sites that you promote products off of. This article will focus on how to pick the affiliate marketing platform right for you and then it will compare five of the more well known platforms.


How To Pick The Right Platform?

Anytime you promote a product you are essentially putting your reputation on the line. Sure you want to make money online but if you push away your viewers then you will find you are selling products to an empty room. If you promote products that your viewers are interested in and you have a lot of credibility with those your viewers, then your viewers are more likely to click the links and purchase the goods. Remember, the tighter your niche and the more you focus on that, the higher your credibility. If you promote products that make no sense for your site or are low quality then you will have lower credibility which leads to lower sales, commissions and even viewers.

You need to really understand what your niche is, what products you will be promoting and the quality you are looking for. Once you do, then choosing affiliate programs will be a lot easier. Also keep in mind the commissions for different programs. Amazon Associates has comparatively lower commissions so you need a lot of regular viewers to make much money. Finally, some affiliate marketing platforms are quite picky on who they want representing them. Some of them insist on you have 10,000 or more monthly views to your site or proof that you are writing articles promoting them and not just sending out spam emails filled with links.
