2 Ways to Find Affiliate Program for a Product
There are two ways you can find an affiliate program for a product.
First of all, let's say you've found a product that seems best-selling and gets a decent amount of searches per month. Now you're looking whether it has an affiliate program or not.
So, in the Google search box, you'll type your product name keyword plus 'affiliate program.'
Google Search: Samsung Galaxy III + 'affiliate program'.
The search result will throw up the top 10 relevant sites that includes your main keyword (Samsung Galaxy III for example), and all their affiliate links. This was the easiest method of all.
If, however, the search term doesn't show up any results for the 'affiliate program.' keyword, then, you can search for 'associate program' instead. Likewise, you can also try 'webmaster program' or 'webmasters’ only that some affiliate programs use.
That's it. These are the exact simple methods I use to find whether a product has an affiliate keyword or not.
