The global economic and financial crisis is now being felt by everyone, and affiliate marketers are no exception. But being an affiliate marketer today, puts you in a better position than most. Although you would currently be just as vulnerable as anyone else, a few simple changes to your routine as listed below, can infinitely boost your financial security. So if you're not an affiliate marketer, you may want to consider learning how.

The average affiliate marketer is in a vulnerable position financially. These are uncertain times, and the more companies, services, and variables you have in your system, the more precarious things are. If one step fails (eg. product loses demand), your whole system fails.

Most affiliate marketers don't realize how many separate factors they rely on to make their marketing system work. It might all work fine for now, but the less factors you rely on for your income, the more secure your finances are. Lets have a look at ways you can make a more solid, secure income from affiliate programs.

Improvement #1. Passive income.

You probably know there are affiliate programs that will pay you recurring payment for one time sales. But have you considered that the income you build with one of these programs is then independent of your marketing. Whether you use article marketing or have an email list or whatever, if the service you use for your marketing closes down because of financial difficulty, you don't even need to market anything to continue to receive that income.

Improvement #2. Non-discretionary products/services.

In order to take full advantage of recurring payments and secure that passive income, you need to market what's in high demand regardless of economic conditions. If ever there was a time to search out these non-discretionary services, it's now. Oh, and it's services, licenses, and memberships that are what you'll be looking for here.

Improvement #3. Being a pain to switch from.

Not enough affiliates consider this crucial element when looking for the best affiliate programs. If you have built yourself an secure, passive income that comes in even if google shuts down, or if you decide to sleep all day everyday, then great. But it will just dwindle away as customers cancel their subscriptions, or no longer need the service.

This is the best way to secure income that i have ever heard. Money keeps coming as you do nothing, but unless you have gathered this passive income with something like a service that is hard to switch form, you won't be able to maintain that income when you need it. Choose a merchant, that when switching from it, it would be like changing the location of your business.

Improvement #4. Choosing the right affiliate program.

This is the most crucial decision of all, and the one that will make the biggest difference to your future. There are many things to look out for when considering an affiliate program. There is all of the above to consider, and a few more. But the main thing you are going to need in an affiliate program, is a very high conversion rate. If you try and sell a product from a website that just doesn't sell, you are wasting valuable time.

And you haven't got forever. When was the last time you heard of the world leaders meeting from all over the globe to discuss a solution to the global economic crisis? Never. And things are getting worse. You will want to secure this passive income as soon as possible. So choosing an affiliate program with a very high conversion rate is essential.

Affiliate marketers are in one of the best positions for creating passive income that flows whether you work or not, and is extremely independent. And yes it is worth switching from an average affiliate program to a better one, to insure financial security. I have even changed niche to take advantage of a better program available. So choose the right affiliate program, and secure your future. It's time to work smarter, not harder.
