Welcome to WebmasterWorld.
Affiliate marketing can be a great way to get some sales while you work on building authority, ranking, and traffic. But do your homework first. Review what other companies offer and develop your affiliate program in advance. A well thought out affiliate program with a good library of creatives in a good market sector will be attractive to affiliates - especially if the payout is good.

Are you asking here about weather you need to proceed with your own product and build an affiliate program, or weather to first begin with signing up to affiliate program and later continue the development of your own.?
If you were taking about the first option then and you are curious about how will it work then its about this:
Do some research , know your strength your benefits and your minuses.
Your strength and your benefits is what will help your affiliates to make profits.
Check the commissions for the niche, make sure you are not offering too much or not enough.
Make marketing materials,give your partners something to work with, its very helpful.
Always try to think ahead, its not you against Google its you against other competitors, and they are not sleeping while you work ;-)

Good luck!
