You can search on Google for the type of products or services you want to sell. When you find the company selling it, you can call them directly. Many of these companies also have what's called an Affiliate Program where you can sign up on their website to sell their products.
 
Consolidators
 
There are also companies that have consolidated thousands of these corporations under their umbrella where you can go and select the kind of products you want to sell. Three popular consolidators are Click Bank and Commission Junction.                

Affiliate Companies & Commissions

Commissions vary from affiliate company to affiliate company. Information and downloadable software products can average commission rates of 50%, where products or services usually bring in commission rates between 5% and 10 %.
         
Information Products      
      
Information and downloadable products are the most profitable. They can pay significant commission. In some situation you can even get commission rates over 50% if you approach the business owner directly. Some information marketers will 'give away' their info product in exchange for visitors to their website.
 
To find these information marketers simply do a Google search beginning with the words 'How To (And What You're Looking For).' You'll want to search websites to compare products, before deciding on the information product you would like to sell. Then call up the website owner and strike a deal with them to sell their product. Never email them unless there's no other way of getting in touch with them. Negotiations are always better with a call or meeting.
 
Click Bank:  Click Bank sells information and downloadable software products with commissions ranging between 40% to 75%. You can register for free on Click Bank and be accepted immediately to sell any of the products from the companies they represent. To see how to register for Clickbank, click here. To register you start by going to ClickBank.com.

Tracking Sales With A Tracking Link

When you become an affiliate to sell a company's product or service, you're given an affiliate tracking link that tracks your sales. A tracking link, tracks the visitors that click from your website to the affiliate's website and tacks your sales.
 
You simply copy this tracking link into your website. You are usually given a selection of banners, pictures or text with the tracking Link embedded inside. You then copy this code into your Income Activator website. To view an example of adding a tracking link into your website, click here.
 
In other cases you're given a tracking link you can copy into your own text, or pictures, just like you would when linking to any website or page; Here's how. When a visitor from your website clicks on the tracking link, they're taken to the affiliate's website. When they make a purchase, you're paid by that affiliate company.
 
Many tracking links keep your visitor's IP Address. This identifies where the person came from and is kept by the affiliate company for a select period of time, usually 2 to 6 months. If you can, you should always ask for the IP address to be kept as long as possible. This way, if the person returns at a later date to purchase, that sale is still attributed to you. 
 
 
The link that takes you to the product for sale and tracks which website you came from as well as the sale. When you become an affiliate partner, you're given a login and password where you can view your sales. Many affiliate companies will send you a check when your sales reach a certain dollar value.
 
Here's how to add a Tracking Link to your website from the following companies.
 
Note: Companies are always changing the look of their pages, but the process will remain the same. These companies also have free online support to help you if needed.

Advantages & Disadvantages

Advantages
 
The advantage of selling existing products is that you have an immediate product line. Your affiliate takes the payments, sends out the product and sends you a check.
 
Disadvantages & Ways To Protect Yourself

There are problems you can encounter by selling company products. They are:

1. Tracking Issues: The affiliate company gives you a ‘tracking link’ which tracks the visitors that go from your website to the company’s website and buy. Some tracking links are difficult to link into your website properly. You should always test your tracking link to make sure it works. To do this, buy the product and see that the purchase is recorded in your affiliate account that was set up by your affiliate company. You can always return the product after your test. This will also give you insight of what your clients will go through for a return.

2. Poor Sales Processing: You should also go through the buying process with the company you want to represent. This way you'll see if it's easy to purchase the product. There's no point in promoting a product only to find out that's its practically impossible to buy. If the buying process is difficult, you have no means to make it better. If this is the case, find another product with an easy sale's process.

3.
Sales Confirmation: You have little way of confirming if a sale has been made. With many affiliate partners the sale is based on trust. This being the case, you should make sure that after the sale is made, your client returns to your website to do something that creates an action so that you can measure it against your reported sales. One way of doing this is by providing a 'Bonus Gift' as a 'Thank You' for purchasing. The bonus could be a 'Free EBook' or a 'Top 10 List' of things your client would be interested in knowing about. Your vendor should have a Sale's Confirmation page where you can put your bonus offer and link back to your website.

4.
Quality Control: You should also buy the product you're promoting to make sure it's at a level of quality that you can be proud of, or you may find that your refunds are high and your clients are not happy with you.
