The period of time the business you are going into partnership has being in existence.
It is not advisable that you go into affiliate programs with business that has existed for less than a year. A business that has been able to survive amidst the turmoil of the business world for over two years and still remain has the tendency of being more successful than the one that is just beginning. You should not jump at offers that come from a site that springs from nowhere all because the offer seems too good to be true. The site might as well disappear after a short period of time and you will be left with nothing to show for all the time, resource and money that you would have invested into it.
The promoters of the program you intend to join.

This will help you to judge how successful the firm is. For a super affiliate to consider promoting a business affiliate program, the chances are greater that such a business is successful.
Traffic of the website that you are partnering with.
The website that you will be considering should be receiving a good deal of traffic. You can check on this by visiting alexa.com. You should keep in mind that if the company’s product is not popular, it is possible that they might not have a good ranking at alexa.com; this should not discourage you totally from considering the affiliate programs that they have.
What does the commission look like?
You should be looking into the fact whether the affiliate program has a fixed amount that is paid for every lead or if it is a percentage of what the consumer spends. You should also be concerned with if it is a one tier, two tiers or multi-tier program that is being offered. All this should be considered before finally making a commitment.
