Seasoned Vets and Newbies alike frequently ask the same question, What and where are the best affiliate programs?
My answer to this question will require answering the question with several questions.
First you'll want to ask yourself, what are you interested in?
Then, what do you know a little something about?
There are many sources as well as an affiliate program that would match just about any interest you may have or know something about.
Let's see if we can't simplify the process of choosing the best affiliate programs to promote.
Head on over to http://clickbank.com/
This is my favorite source of the most popular programs. They tell you the percentage you'll receive on each sale and they also put it in dollars and cents. They also reveal other stats about each program that will help you to determine if the program you chose is right for you to promote.
Your next choice is http://www.linkshare.com/
LinkShare pioneered online affiliate marketing, and today runs the largest pay for performance affiliate marketing network on the Internet. With over 10 million partnerships in the network it is the most successful pay for performance network of its kind.
Next is Commission Junction http://www.cj.com/
Maximize your revenue opportunities by developing sustainable relationships with top-tier advertisers. Perform and get paid for every sale and lead you generate. For qualifying publishers, take your program to the next level with their industry exclusive solution for top-performers.
There are more equally as credible affiliate program sources on the web but for the sake of simplicity and to keep this article to a minimum length I'm going to limit these resources to the top three. If you like, you can simply go to your favorite search engine and continue your search foe "Affiliate Program Resources".
Knowing a little something about what you want to sell will be to your advantage but not required. After all, this is The Information Super Highway and whatever information we need can be found here. The tools at are disposal are many. You just need to know where they are and what they will tell you.
Google.com would be a good place to start your search. If you type "affiliate programs" into the search box you you will get a list of literally millions of potential programs. At the time of this writing (7-12-06) there were 111,000,000 possible affiliate programs to chose from. That blows my mind (:-(
You don't have to weed through that many sites. The first few pages should give you a few ideas as to what you want to promote. Try and stick with something you've got some background in.
For example, let's say you've been working in a pet store for awhile. See if you can't find an affiliate program related to pets. Maybe pet food...
