Many new marketers think you need to find untapped niche markets to be successful. But markets with high demand and no competition are very rare. You don't want to waste your time promoting products that won't make you any money. So you need to select a market that you know will be profitable. You want a competitive market where a lot of money is already being spent. There will always be room in a market of cash-in-hand buyers. All you need is a small slice of the pie...
Any market that helps people make money, save money or improve their life in some way will be profitable.
You can't go wrong if you choose within the top 3 niche markets: health, wealth and relationships.
After choosing a profitable market, you need to learn how to find primary affiliate program to promote as well as additional affiliate products that you can weave into your back-end follow up autoresponder sequence.
Remember, you're building a list so you can promote multiple products and services.
Here's what to look for in a good affiliate program:
• High commission (50% - 100%)
• High converting sales letter
• Quality product that you would want to buy
• Proven marketing tools (email ads, graphics, etc.)
Personally, I highly recommend that you only promote digital products such as information and software. Digital products are available for instant download so there is very little overhead and profit margins are much higher than they are with hard goods.
That's why merchant's who sell digital products pay higher commissions. In fact, there are thousands of programs online that will pay you 50% - 75%, and sometimes up to 100% commission and it costs you nothing to join as an affiliate.
There are over 11,000 information products to promote in dozens of markets and most pay 50-75% commission per sale.
Cash flow is the number 1 thing in all businesses, particularly when just beginning. Having access to cash helps you to grow more quickly.
What's in it for the web site/product owners? They get more sales, as the affiliates are more inclined to sign on. Getting paid immediately really grabs the affiliate's attention!
Looking into instant commission programs is extremely recommended if you're an active affiliate. And if you're fresh to the affiliate game, it's the best place to begin.
Let's do a quick overview of a few:

When you’re an affiliate for a product, your commission is paid automatically, immediately upon a successful purchase from the buyer.
Before you get your commission, though, the fee is paid by the seller. This means if you were getting a 100% commission, you’d get 100% of the cash left over after the fees.
For a refund, the customer requests it from the vendor and the vendor does the refund. When this gets sent to PayPal, the commission you got gets refunded to the seller.
All of this happens automatically. It’s a great idea to keep the commission in your account for 60 days to ensure that the buyer doesn’t request a refund.
The only e-mail address the buyer ever sees is the vendor’s.

Prior to you throwing yourself rashly into the marketing activities that will take over much of your time as an affiliate, it’s vital that you select a great product to market.
Not all products with affiliate programs make you any money and even the greatest marketing efforts may be wasted if the program isn’t attractive to customers, or doesn’t pay out a great commission.
While you may discover a profitable market first and then locate affiliate programs inside that market, it’s actually a lot faster to do just the opposite.

Ask yourself “What do you know about the business marketing the products” Why, recognizing what sort and brands that are utilized may better help to sell if the brand name is well known.
You don’t have to have all your affiliate products in well known brands however a few well targeted products may be handy to help attract attention to your site. And if you sell more than one product on your site, this might catch individual’s attention for additional items.
Do your research about the affiliate company and figure out how they pay, do they pay instantly or rotating payments, determine that they have good sales results and conversions.
