    How to Use Affiliate Programs - How They Work

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    There are two ways to take advantage of affiliate programs on the Internet: you can join a program and earn more traffic (and possibly higher site sales), or you can host a program and refer your traffic to affiliated sites.

    When you choose to sign up for an affiliate program to gain more traffic for your site, itís very likely this plan will work. Affiliate programs are highly successful and growing more popular all the time. However, you may have to pay your affiliate company for this traffic; it all depends on the terms of your affiliate agreement. When their traffic actually buys products or services through your site, you may have to pay a small fee to your affiliate. Some programs charge fees depending on the amount of traffic sent to your site, while others will charge fees based upon the services and products sold. Youíll get traffic for doing nothing but signing up, and for many site owners the cost of receiving these visitors is negligible.

    You may also choose to use affiliate programs in a different way, by offering to refer your own traffic to affiliated sites. Youíll place links to that site (or sites) within your pages, and send the visitors on their merry way to your business partner. When your traffic buys from the affiliate, the affiliate pays you. You earn for doing nothing more than placing a few links on your site, making affiliate programs very attractive indeed. If you have no products or services of your own to offer, this method of affiliation could be highly lucrative. If you do sell something through your pages, itís a good idea not to choose a competing site as an affiliate. If you sell toasters, for instance, donít affiliate with an appliance site. Itís a better idea to choose a business which might complement yours. An online bread company would work in the toaster scenario, for instance.

    Many online advertisers have learned that affiliate marketing programs can be beneficial, and create added revenue, no matter how they are used.

    Do you know how to use them?
