Affiliate programs have been around the Internet for quite some time now. If I remember correctly, the first affiliate programs are dated from 1994. After so many years, the number of internet users increased and so did the number of people seeking Internet jobs and ways to earn online.
With so many things going around, we couldn't expect that the best affiliate programswould just stay the same, right? The standard affiliate page, shared with all the program members, no innovations, no new ideas, no individuality. Well, the current Internet environment finally imposed that those programs are faded to lose more and more members. On this article, I'll tell you about the major changes going on affiliate programs in general.
As I mentioned in the second paragraph, current affiliate programs lack individuality. People get tired after seeing the same page many times and newer members are most likely to face more difficult in recruiting other members and forming their downline. Sometimes it is not a fault of the program itself. It is just that people are already tired from that particular page and don't even bother reading what it has to say.
Looking for individualization and unique content, those users create their own page to promote the affiliate program, with unique design, content, images. All fresh and new. The result is obvious: these members will definitely recruit a lot more than those who stick with the general page will.
So, the point you have to consider before joining a program is not how old it is or how many members it have but rather if the program supports the members in creating unique content to promote it. Although creating unique content takes time and requires an involved member, if the affiliate program you are working for appreciate and encourage this behavior, there is no reason not to spent some time to create your own unique content.
