One half of your concern will be in finding customers that will purchase your product or service–and hopefully repeatedly. The other challenge will be to turn these prospects into affiliate members that have the same drive and passion about the product or service. Presenting the product as a stand-alone entity best does this. This can be accomplished by looking at the product and its benefits in meeting your niche market’s needs solely by itself. If there were no affiliate opportunity, would the product or service itself generate income while providing a high level of satisfaction to the customer?

This area of concern is often overlooked, and is why many programs fail to recruit and maintain affiliates. Any good business plan in the new marketing age will also focus on creating a dynamic and effective web site. There are endless packages to choose from, and many businesses that can develop and host your content for the right price. Once again though, it comes right back to thoroughly knowing your product and what it’s meant to accomplish. Web developers cannot create the dream–they can only interpret it.

The same rules of knowing your product and customer’s needs will also apply. You may be at the stage of growing the business by looking for affiliate members to join up. Finally, you may be a pioneer with an entirely new product, or a twist on one that’s been around for some time and you’re looking to build a down-line of customers and affiliates. Whatever the case and stage of development–know, understand, and utilize the time honored rules of success.
