Choosing Online Affiliate Programs
for Your Website
That Increase Your Chances
of Actually Making Money
Affiliate Programs that can work for you.
420 Affiliate Programs, or any affiliate
program for that matter, should take great interest in
We just want to mention a few important factors you
should know about when choosing the Merchant you wish to work
for... Because the bottom line is you will be
working for them - so you want it to be worth YOUR time,
and not just theirs. You obviously have an intent to
make money online, now be sure and spend your time and
efforts with a worthwhile affiliate program.
We are going to assume that you already know what
Industry or Products you are looking to promote, and may
even be aware of some of the affiliate programs that
serve that market. Understand, you have to work at
these programs, people think that it's easy to make
money online - HUGE MISCONCEPTION.
Now it is EXTREMELY important
to YOUR income that you understand a few things about
the terms of some affiliate agreements -
PLEASE READ THEM.
I have personally found the
hardest part to be;
Finding Reliable &
Trustworthy Merchants, (believe it) - ones that can
be taken for their word and pay on time without
aggravation. Ones who respond to you in a timely
manner - a couple days versus weeks. I know, you
would think they were happy to have an awesome
salesperson or sales force - but that does not seem to
matter much to them (in my experience). - So be careful.
Even a good and fair program is getting harder to find,
do your homework and save time and aggravation.
Once you are aware of what to look for, you will be
in an ideal position to select the best affiliate
programs and the most profitable to you. Your Time
and Effort is worth money, right? Nothing is FREE - you
get out exactly what you put into it.
It should always be
FREE to sign-up for the program.
It doesn't hurt to do
a little checking on the company. Sometimes
you find out about their affiliates,
customers or programs just by Googling them.
15% and HIGHER
- Nothing Less! See below.
Good Products &
Good products, good
selection, good pricing and shipping
policies, these all help you sell.
When your prospect
returns to buy again, are you compensated?
Ideally, this should be YES.
Offering you a percent
of sales coming from others who signed up
under you (from your link). 2 or 3 tier.
response to affiliates, if you can't get a
response to an inquiry, they are not helping
you and not worried about your concerns or
traffic. Find another.
Read these to find out
how good (or bad) you and your efforts will
be rewarded. See below.
Reputable Firm -
Hopefully, this one is self-explanatory, but not always
easy to find. Online and real-time statistics are also very important
and worthwhile to your mission, a good affiliate program
- One of my pet peeves. Offering 10% commissions
and then a World of stipulations. Your time and
effort is worth more than this, but it's your decision.
Remember, they get the customers email, they get
'forever' re-orders, they are Branded by you, and they
still got all the traffic you send to them - whether they
bought or not... wouldn't you like FREE traffic,
branding & links
Products & Pricing
- If everything is overpriced and very little sells,
than you need to find a better program. 40% of
nothing is far less than 20% of something. Investigate
this a bit, you'll be glad you did.
If a customer you previously sent to the Merchant
returns to buy again, are you paid again?
Obviously, you would like this to be YES, however, many,
many Merchants do not pay on returning customers
purchases... you would have to ask them why?
Multi-Tiered - If
someone signs-up as an affiliate from your link, some
affiliate programs pay you a percentage of their
on-going sales too.
Support - Try a
friendly email before you sign-up, I'll give you a few
questions to ask below. When do you get paid?
Terms & Conditions
- How long does this customer stay attached to you?
24 hours is unacceptable! Many, many people do not
buy on their first visit! If they return to their
bookmarked shopping cart and add more stuff, do I get
paid? Click-through to Sale Ratio? (average number of
visitors before a sale). You want your IP or cookie to stay connected to that
customer for as long as possible - 90 days is good, but
a year is even better.
Read the fine
print in the Terms & Conditions -
may surprise you how hard some companies make it for
to make money selling THEIR products, we already know
they are profitable. Look for Programs that give you the
advantage, not the opposite.
We DO have some experience online
Here are a few companies we
Blacklist and WHY
We hope you'll join us in
Boycotting these websites
and their associated businesses. Thank You.
DO NOT BUY - Personal
orders and issues never
satisfied - argumentative. Our own orders were never
completely satisfied here, even after I
finally received a partial order, the
balance was never made right and the "Doc"
didn't worry about it any longer - even
though we were attempting to partner with
this firm. Nothing short of calling us liars
and trying to "take advantage" of them
- Read their Affiliate Program Terms -
They are the only ones making cash - You can make
better choices. In My Opinion,
their program sucks for the affiliates (see terms above).
Every Term and Condition is skewed to them, not the
affiliate at all. 24 hour "buy" window for
you to get commissions is just not acceptable.
Friendly Stranger Store™
- In Canada,
this organization claims Trademark rights to
the terms Cannabis Culture and is in legal
disputes with Marc Emery and friends
(Cannabis Culture the magazine) - We are his
friend and an admirer of all the work he and
his wife and friends have contributed to our
stores here in the States, with a website
something alt.gardens (?)... I used to
personally shop here until one day I
approached the store employees with a
partnership proposal to sell their lights
and equipment online (send them paying
customers). I was told they want
nothing to do with our "types" (?) and was
told I could NOT shop there any more.
They actually believe all their customers
are growing parsley and chives in their
living rooms? Hmmm, I suggest they
purge their database then, because that was
just plain naive - and telling me I can't
shop there? (WTF was that
about?) Their pricing is retail or
higher, and the same exact products can be
found cheaper online, without the
mistreatment or lack of support or respect
for home growers around the World.
hope to save our friends and consumers from
being ripped off or associating with firms
that DO NOT support fairness, opportunity,
ethics, the Industry, or even being friendly. You CAN find good
people and products elsewhere, and sometimes
our pocketbook is our only real recourse in
making a point.
Choose your friends
wisely, and stay sharp. All statements made
here are MY OPINION based on specific
occurrences (facts) which we outlined as is
our Right. We hope this helps all of
our valued friends, because that IS
what we're all about. It's all about
good Karma - or practicing some.
We wish you
luck on your affiliate ventures -
Go for it all - or just
