Where to Find Products and Services to Sell Online

February 20, 2010

After verifying the profitability of your niche, you need to find merchants who sell related products and services through their affiliate programs. These programs include affiliate networks, merchant websites and affiliate program directories.

An affiliate network acts as an intermediary between affiliate and merchant affiliate program. It allows website publishers to more easily find and participate in affiliate programs which are suitable for their website , and allows websites offering affiliate programs to reach a larger audience by promoting their affiliate programs to all of the affiliates participating in the affiliate network. Affiliate network services and benefits may include tracking technology, reporting tools, payment processing, and access to a large base of publishers. Engaging to an affiliate network as an affiliate is very advantageous. It is completely free to join and the whole process is simplified through categorical search facilities. After being accepted into the network, you then apply to each merchant’s program separately, and your application will then be approved immediately.

Affiliate networks differ in so many ways. some of which are in the application and payment processes, affiliate interface and its marketing tools. The following are the list of the type of merchant offerings:

  • CPA (cost-per-action)
  • CPC  (cost-per-click)
  • CPS (cost-per-sale)
  • CPM (cost-per-impression)

It is much better to engage into networks that offer primarily on CPA, CPC and CPS.
