What To Know About Browsers And Affiliate Programs

“Anyone who slaps a ‘this page is best viewed with Browser X’ label on a Web page appears to be yearning for the bad old days, before the Web, when you had very little chance of reading a document written on another computer, another word processor, or another network.”

Tim Berners-Lee (Inventor of the World Wide Web)

Whether it is a static or dynamic website, it has to be viewable with any web browser. Even though most web surfers use the IE (Microsoft Internet Explorer), your website has to be viewed in other browsers such as Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, and more. Due to the fact that IE is the most popular browser, many web designers disregard less popular browsers.

When you are building a website your goal is to create a great user experience for all visitors regardless of what browser they use.

Affiliate programs are the ideal way to make your website profitable. There is such a variety of web affiliate programs now available to suit you and your site. You may become an affiliate and earn extra revenue through your website, or you may create your own affiliate program enabling others to profit by driving traffic to your site. Either way, affiliate programs should be part of a complete online business strategy.

What is an affiliate?

Think of affiliates as business partners. They can help market your product, drive traffic to your site, help you generate leads, and more. Affiliates are business allies helping you succeed. If you play your cards right, they can take your business to the next level. Affiliates are only paid for results.

Depending on the affiliate program they are usually paid for sales or leads. The most common payment method is cost per sale. Affiliates can earn a percentage of sales or a fixed dollar amount per transaction. Affiliates are paid for performance. If they don’t perform they don’t get paid.

Affiliates market products by building websites. The same general rule applies to affiliate websites like any other website, the more traffic you get the better. Affiliates devote a great deal of effort to driving traffic to their sites through various means such as Pay Per Click campaigns, search engine optimization, blogging, article submission, link exchange, and the like. Affiliates can be individuals or businesses.
