Affiliate Corporation Marketing Profits

Mar 20, 2008
The term affiliate corporation marketing sounds a bit daunting, but is just where large corporations market through affiliates. Most affiliates concentrate on marketing Clickbank digital products, because they can be downloaded, and the system works very well.

However, although there are some advantages with working with an individual, there also advantages in working with corporations. For a start, they usually have people who are responsible for helping affiliates with their marketing. In some cases, this can be just a case of making banners a suitable size for your website, which is not the best way of marketing. Others will tell you which products convert best, and provide articles and other information.

Find corporations at the big affiliate exchanges

Where do you find companies involved in affiliate corporation marketing? Well, cj.com and linkshare.com are the best places, but if you want to market a particular product you can search using the term affiliate+keyword, where keyword is the product you want to market, like flat-screen TV, golf clubs or whatever.

Although quite a few big corporations go through sites like cj.com, others run their own programs. It is very easy to get software to run affiliate programs, and big corporations have the staff to run their own affiliate corporation marketing.

Check what they offer and the commissions the corporations pay

But as an affiliate, the big question you need to ask is whether this type of affiliate marketing is for you? Will it be profitable? This depends entirely whether the corporation markets its products to the surfers you can reach,and whether they do it well. It is easiest to market a product that is already known and which has a reputation; remember, we are talking tangible products here, not e-books.

Here is a check list for affiliate corporation marketing:

**Does the corporation have a range of products that are well-known and of good quality?
**Would I buy their products?
**What is the commission in dollars, which is more important than the percentage. A commission of 5 per cent of $999 is more than 75 per cent of $49, and can be marketed just as easily.
**How visible are their products if I search on Google for the type of product?
**Do I think this corporation is committed to affiliate corporation marketing?

To find out how committed they are, contract then with some questions. For example, which products are converting best? If it is not obvious ask what marketing tools they have? If it is, ask for a specific tool, such as a solo ezine ad and see what response you get.

If you follow these guidelines you will find some good products this way.
