As we begin to face another year one thing that every affiliate marketer is doing is analyzing the programs they are involved in. This is a good time to determine which programs are not performing properly and need to be replaced.

In this article let's talk about a few tips to help you choose the best affiliate programs to represent in the coming year.

1. Google Trends is an interesting website where you can see what is going on in the marketplace. One thing that has proven to be true over the years is you want to be selling products in markets where people are currently spending money.

This will help give you some ideas about the type of affiliate programs that you want to join and find products for. Take a look at what is going on in the marketplace and determine what offers some potential income opportunities for you.

2. When representing an affiliate program you will want to look at the product and the quality of the product. One way to determine this is to actually purchase the product before you sell it.

Representing quality products will help enhance your reputation as someone who can be trusted which is important on the Internet. Purchasing the products lets you become confident it is in fact a quality product so you can pass them on to your potential customers.

3. The commission rate is a very important aspect of your business because the more money you earn per sale, the more money you will earn over the course of that year. Therefore you want to represent affiliate programs that pay the highest possible commissions.

If you are the type of affiliate that can produce sales, you may even want to approach that affiliate program directly and request a higher commission rate. Many affiliate managers have the ability to give out a higher commission rate to performing affiliates.

4. Residual income is an important part of any affiliate business if you choose to make it so. Today more recurring programs are available for you to make money on.

Even digital products such as offers, contain many recurring commission programs. Creating a residual income allows you to get paid over and over for work that you do one time.

This is four things to keep in mind when choosing the best affiliate programs in 2009. Understand what is going on in the marketplace, sell only quality products, demand a high commission rate, and sell residual income products for future income too!
