Affiliate marketing is benefitful for both the product manufacturer and the publisher.
Manufactures will get more sales promotion without any cost other than the basic infrastructure set ups. This is the reason why most of the manufactures provide an affiliate program for increasing their product sales. Most of the companies prefer affiliate marketing as good way to promote their products because affiliate partnership does not cost them anything.
At the same time, publishers find affiliate marketing attractive because their earnings in this business will be more than any cost per click or cost per impression advertising. The publisher gets commission for every sale without any business investment other than his/her online promotional efforts.

What Is The Successful Affiliate Marketing Tips To Find Profit?
It is of course the selection of the product. Most of the affiliate partners are not getting anything from this business though they are doing their promotional promptly. It is because of the mistake that was occurred during the selection of the product/products to promote.
When selecting a product, you should be assured about the quality of the product. For this either you have to use this personally and find about the usefulness of the product or select the good quality products from reputed affiliated companies like Clickbank, ShareaSale or Commission Junction. Low quality products may offer more commission but that will affect your reputation as a good publisher. People will not belive in your promotional activities anymore.
Another important thing that you should consider for the selection of products is that they should be relevant to your niche. If you are promoting a Hair Dye through your blog or web site discussing gardening or cooking, your effort will be wasted. Your supporters or followers are looking for the information about the topic you are discussing in your web pages and then they will only welcome products that are related to that subject.
Most of the affiliate marketing is becoming a failure because of the wrong selection of the products. If you want to keep your followers with you, offer them something which has some good value and something they are interested in. If a product or a service, even though it is of high quality, is not from your niche it will not be acceptable to your supporters. Promoting a low quality product will decrease the future traffic of your web site/ blog. So be very careful in the selection of the products to promote.
How to Find the Right Product
The easiest way to find products for the promotion is to search though Affiliate Networks. There are a few affiliate networks that list many affiliate programs. You can use their search option to get related products to your blog’s niche. Or select products from already established affiliate marketing companies like ClickBank, Commission Junction, ShareaSale etc.
Search Google for the right products. Type ‘your keyword+Affiliate Program (here replace ‘your keyword’ with you niche) and you can find a lot of appropriate products.
