What Makes A Good Money Making Affiliate Program?

Dec 6, 2007
Affiliate programs have been bandied across the internet as the next best way to make easy money. From websites to eBooks to blogs to articles like this one, much has been written about making money with affiliate programs. And while there is certainly no arguing the potential of a good affiliate program, those who hope to create wealth through affiliations need to learn to spot a good one first.

First Things First

First off, it's important to clarify one point: affiliate programs are not really "easy" answers to wealth creation. Affiliate programs are easier than many other means of creating financial wealth, but it's deceptive to call them easy.

A more accurate term to use to describe wealth creation affiliate programs is "passive". Affiliate programs that are well designed, well implemented, and well maintained can continue to make money on their own for a long time, with only minor tweaking. But that does not mean that it is a walk in the park to get them there. Money-making affiliate programs for wealth creation require effort and work. Not endless days and nights worth, but work nonetheless.

Wealth Creation Affiliate Programs: Spotting A Good One

With that understood, those of you willing to put in some hours which is, for most, part-time at best can move on to finding a good wealth creation affiliate program to work with. Look for these key characteristics of a good wealth creation affiliate program to maximize your profit potential:

* Affordability; wealth creation affiliates that are selling to people for thousands of dollars are not the type of program you are looking for; and they are not the type of financial wealth creating program that is in-tune with the reality of building wealth from the ground up (which is, of course, that your resources are strapped to begin with). You should be able to get into a good wealth creating affiliate program for well under $1,000.

* Simplicity; you are the wealth creation program's affiliate and you should keep that in mind. You are not their programmer, designer, or coder. Those people should have already been paid to present you with a simple, user-friendly system.

* Profitable; the idea of partnering with an affiliate program for wealth creation is that you help them find more clients and they share the proceeds from those sales with you. But miniscule profit-sharing means miniscule income, so look for a program that will reward your efforts with significant commissions (measured in the hundreds of dollars). In the end, you will probably expend the same amount of effort either way, so you should maximize your profit end by brokering a great deal for yourself from the start.

* Demanded; great wealth creation products mean that they will be in demand; so you will sell more and make more money! This is a simple one that needs little explanation. If no one wants to buy the products offered at the end of your financial wealth affiliation, you'll never turn a profit.

* Supportive; throughout your affiliation with your wealth creating partner, you'll have questions. They should have answers; and they should be readily available when you need them.

Choosing a product you believe in is just one part of choosing the best affiliate program as your wealth creation partner. Ensuring that the program is set up to go the distance with you is equally important. Success with affiliate programs comes only through choosing the right partnership program all around.
