    Smile affiliate marketing question
    I am new to affiliate marketing. I have started my site and did not realize it would be so hard to get merchants that will work with affiliate marketers??

    How do you find affiliate merchants that will work with you to link to their site and pay commission.

    Plus, what is typical to embed the merchants link and have the consumer just click for information, or embed it in an article, etc..?

    thank you

    Have you applied to the various networks..? And is your site up & running for merchants approval..?

    You mention that it is 'hard to get merchants' - does that mean you can't find them, or they are not accepting you into their program?

    You need to incorporate the links into the content. Just adding links to a site mean nothing. You have to add value to the page to get consumers to read it and click through to the merchant.

    Finding merchants should not be very hard. See who is advertising in google (sites listed in shaded box at top of google) for your keywords and go to their site and look for an affiliate section. If you don't see one go to their contact us page and write an email asking them if they have an affiliate program.

    If info products is your thing then go to Clickbank where you can choose from a multitude of products. Otherwise you would normally need to have a site fairly well established to get merchant's acceptance.
