There are a few simple factors that need to be in place if you want to be an affiliate making money online. It's actually very simple to become and affiliate because there are many businesses that are looking for affiliates to sell their products. The key of course isn't to simply become and affiliate instead it is to make money as an affiliate. It is the number one reason we go into business.

The first key to making money online is to sell products that are very well established. Although these products may have a small percentage they payout for each sale they are products that are known to have a very high click through rate.

The click through rate is simply taking the number of visitors you have to your site and dividing it by the number of customers who actually click on your advertisements.

Google Adwords is a prime example of an affiliate opportunity that has a high click through rate. That is because the advertisements target the content of your blog or website. Amazon.Com is another example because advertisements can be placed that also target the content of your site.

These types of programs have a very small payout per sale or click as in Adwords but they offer the ability to have a large number of sales and clicks each day. This allows you to make good money providing you have enough people seeing the ads each day. The more visitors you have to your site or blog the higher number of clicks you will get and the more money you will make. This type of sale is a low pay high volume income producer and can payout nicely if done correctly.

2. Direct selling of other peoples products. Other lessor known products that often sell for a higher dollar amount will have far less sales but an even greater income potential.

This type of affiliate sales should involve a fairly high commission rate. While some companies, ones I would not spend my time on, offer commissions in the 20 percent range it is very easy to find opportunities that pay 30 percent and upwards to 40 percent per sale.

There are other factors that must be considered such as the quality of the product, the reputation of the company and how much demand there is for the product. While those things must be addressed to assure any sales it is just as important to obtain the highest commission rate possible.

It will require the exact same amount of effort to sell a product that cost $40.00 and pays 20 percent as it does to sell a $40.00 product that pays 40 percent or more. Providing the product you choose does not fall into number one above, high volume sales that pay a small percentage, it only makes sense to seek out products that pay a higher percentage rate per sale.

The above two approaches to making money with affiliate sales have the ability to earn the online affiliate a lot of money if done correctly. Many affiliates will use both strategies to earn a significant income.

The key factor to being an affiliate making money is to make as many sales as possible with the program you choose and to either have a high number of sales each day. or to make the most money per sale possible.
