In this article I’m going to talk about how to make money with articles and where to find affiliate programs for your niche website. If you want to make money online with the articles that you post on your websites, you will also need a variety of good affiliate programs that will help you to generate more revenue. Your main goal at this point is that you know where to find affiliate programs and that you choose the best affiliate programs for you and your niche site.
When you pick an affiliate program, it is very important that you determine which companies you will profit best from based on the frequency that the product is likely to sell. There are several types of affiliate programs and some will offer you more money from a sale than others will. However, before you get hazy-eyed by dollar signs, remember that some products are bound to sell more than others. If you sell on product four times a year from a little known company that gives you $100 per sale or sell a well known product 3 times a week at the rate of $10 per sale, then you will make much more money with the $10 per sale product.
Unfortunately, often times large well known companies will offer a very small profit per sale because they are established and know that their product is likely to sell well. On the other hand, Small, unknown companies need all of the promotion they can get. Also, because they are unknown, their products are likely to sell less frequently.
When picking an affiliate to promote on your site, the most important rule is to pick products that would be of interest to those who would likely visit your niche site. Otherwise you will be promoting a product to a group of people who do not even want nor need it. If your niche site targets parents of young children, then promote baby products. If you niche site is about gardeners, then simply promote gardening products etc. If you’re going to promote baby products to gardeners, you are almost guaranteed to not make a profit no matter how much money the affiliate company offers for a sale.
Lastly, there are two main ways to find an affiliate company for your niche website. You can register with a company that manages the accounts of thousands of companies, big and small, and apply for the products within these accounts or you can also do a web search for companies that would match well with your niche, visit their websites, and see if they have an affiliate program.
