The quality of affiliate programs and the results you'll see will vary greatly from program to program. This makes it important to choose the affiliate program you join wisely. Important points to keep in mind are listed below.

1- Stability of the company and program
This should be one of the most important considerations when evaluating programs. Is the company financially sound? Do they offer assistance with promoting the opportunity? And, do they pay in a timely fashion? Often, webmasters have been lured in by offers of high commissions, only to find out they will never see a paycheck, despite referring hundreds, or even thousands, of visitors.

2- Compatibility and Synergies with your site

As you consider the various affiliate programs available, be sure to consider what exactly your audience might be interested in clicking-on, and eventually buying. Don't indiscriminately place banners all you're your site because in many cases, you will turn-off your audience due to your site's over-commercialization. Think of the affiliate program you join as an extension of your website. It is a service you offer your visitors to help them find the products or services they are interested in, at good prices, and with a merchant they can trust.

3- Opportunity for Repeat Earnings
A business normally cannot survive on one-time purchases. Instead you must find ways to not only attract new customers, but also to keep earning from your existing customers. As much as possible, join affiliate programs that allow you to earn commissions from your referred customers on an ongoing basis for as long as that customer continues to transact at merchant website. This assures you of practically a lifetime source of cash.

4 - Competitive Commission Structure
Compare various affiliate programs and their respective commission structures. While you're at it, also check the frequency of payment (they generally range from weekly to quarterly) and the minimum dollar value you must accumulate before receiving payment (they range from $1 to $250).

5 - Free of Charge Entry
Entry to most Affiliate Programs is free of charge. Be wary of programs that require a payment or 'membership fee' for you to join. Many of these are notorious scams that play on everyones interst in getting rich quick.
