Although in the first year of providing web hosting services to its customers, Bluehost earns roughly around 25-35$ per customer, but that’s not going to stop. A customer who has taken web hosting services from Bluehost is most likely to continue the service in the second, third and consecutive years.
Great tips! Since I just started blogging in January I am still really just getting my toes wet in affiliates. However, I did notice that pictures and real life demonstrations of the product really help. For instance, I have several food posts where I talk about my favorite cook books and show what I have cooked out of them, and then included amazon links, sure enough I sold a few cook books.
Is it necessary to have a blog website? What if I wanted to create a straight up e-commerce site selling products from major retail outlets. A website that rewards with discounts or other special promos just for buying through our affiliate site.
Almost any website could be recruited as an affiliate publisher, but high traffic websites are more likely interested in (for their sake) low-risk cost per mille or medium-risk cost per click deals rather than higher-risk cost per action or revenue share deals.
Of course, because eBay is an auction-based marketplace and not a straight-up eCommerce store, affiliate commissions behave differently: rather than pay a commission on the final sale price, eBay pays a commission on the fee they charge for the auction.
1. I’ve built a Shopify site (using dropshipping from Aliexpress + Oberlo), there is a good market, but the items are not the best, and I’d prefer a more automated process, could I find a good program on ShareASale ?
This has been amazing read thanks Perrin. I’m new to affiliate marketing and look around to learn from those who are doing well. The standard of this article is way out there and has given me an inspired look to where I need to aim to get ahead of the rest. thanks again for this and I will be coming back time and time again 🙂 Colin
To be honest, I struggled a little at the start looking for high paying affiliate programs in these niches. Finding awesome affiliate marketing programs is tough when you’re not familiar with the industry.
I’m Big Fan of Affiliate marketing. Currently, I’m using CJ and Maxbounty That is my all time favourite affiliate marketing income source. Also, I’m trying to build Shopify which is now on Fire. Thanks! for such great Insight.
In addition to its regular pay-per-action affiliate program, the company also offers a convenient PayPerCall program to help affiliates “ensure they get paid commission for the leads they generate, thus further monetizing existing ad placements and having the opportunity to expand their promotional…online and offline campaigns.”
Giving away a free informational product such as an e-book, an email series or a mini course is a popular tactic many affiliate marketers use. Usually, your readers will have to provide their email addresses to receive the product from you. You can then use this to sell to them via email marketing. Additionally, an informational product can generate interest in the actual product you’re trying to sell. If your product is popular enough and brings enough traffic to your site, you could also monetize the traffic in other ways, such as AdSense.
Nice post, I can’t believe how much some of these affiliates pay! I recently invested in Bitconnect and they have an awesome affiliate program as well where you earn 7% commission on your referrals investment (up to $100k investments). Attached is the link to the website I’m referring to and how you can create an account today!
Bluehost is another great affiliate program that offers realible, cost-effective hosting for the masses. You get $75 per referral and it’s and easy sell (only costs around 5 bucks a month, if not less)
LinkConnector is particularly famous for its strict affiliate approval and screening processes. They only approve established and reliable affiliates that have their own websites and audience. As a result, they have more merchants than active affiliates
You don’t get buyer’s info to use later. A buyer’s information is extremely valuable, but in this case, the advertiser gets to keep it and you never see it. The advertiser can then pitch products or services to that buyer for months or years down the road, potentially making a lot more money in the long run.
Hi Jennifer, you could target people in the “get a better job” space. This is the prime market for your offer. There are plenty of high-authority blogs out there in this niche and if you can partner with some influencers, you can see some amazing results. That said, it’s not as easy a 123. Your affiliate offer needs to be amazing. Your website should be beautiful, and your need to have a strategy for reaching out to these people in your industry. You can’t just send them an email and expect them to sign up to your affiliate program.
ShareASale actually just modernized their interface in the past couple days- much nicer now. I’ve been experimenting with Jet, Walmart, and more recently NewEggg, against Amazon. Amazon destroys them.
iAffiliates is an affiliate program that likes five prominent online casino brands. It actively encourages existing players to revisit its sites by using generous promotions, and new gamers are rewarded with lucrative bonuses. By signing up you can promote deals for Casino.com, Monarch Casino and slots heaven with up to $500 CPA for new customers.
You may NOT use the Entireweb affiliate program to refer yourself to the Free Search Engine Submission service. The banners and the links of the affiliate program may NOT be used in spam emails or other spam activities (blog comment spam, forum spam, etc.). In that case, your affiliate account will be terminated and outstanding commissions will not be paid.
Low hassle / responsibility. As an affiliate marketer, you don’t have to deal with inventory, customer service, infrastructure, shipping, returns, follow up, etc. These are all the responsibility of the advertiser.

Literally. I have not yet come across a niche for which there weren’t multiple affiliate programs to tinker with and test against each other. And it’s important to find these programs; it’s just like testing ad networks–you need to test lots of programs to find the best combination for your specific site.
With possibly the most transparent affiliate network online, we give affiliates access to stats no other program dare, including earning data, conversion stats, demographic information and seasonality trends. With ethics and consumer protection being high on the agenda, you can rest assured when working with MoreNiche you are working with an honest, trustworthy and transparent company.
In the case of cost per mille/click, the publisher is not concerned about whether a visitor is a member of the audience that the advertiser tries to attract and is able to convert, because at this point the publisher has already earned his commission. This leaves the greater, and, in case of cost per mille, the full risk and loss (if the visitor cannot be converted) to the advertiser.
In November 1994, CDNow launched its BuyWeb program. CDNow had the idea that music-oriented websites could review or list albums on their pages that their visitors might be interested in purchasing. These websites could also offer a link that would take visitors directly to CDNow to purchase the albums. The idea for remote purchasing originally arose from conversations with music label Geffen Records in the fall of 1994. The management at Geffen wanted to sell its artists’ CD’s directly from its website but did not want to implement this capability itself. Geffen asked CDNow if it could design a program where CDNow would handle the order fulfillment. Geffen realized that CDNow could link directly from the artist on its website to Geffen’s website, bypassing the CDNow home page and going directly to an artist’s music page.
Very well written! Thanks for sharing these tips. Something as simple as adding your affiliate link to images is one I’ve overlooked sometimes lol. What has worked the best for me is adding bonuses to the affiliate offer.
Whose opinion would you trust when you’re buying a new web hosting service or purchasing a new online coaching program – a total stranger or a seasoned pro who doesn’t promote any product without testing it himself?
Products are now put in a category. The commission will be based on the category each product has been placed in whether or not the category is correct. For instance, I had a sale for a child riding toy tractor. Instead of it being in toys category which would have only earned me 3%, it was actually placed in lawn and garden category which I then actually earned 8% instead.
Some categories made it out intact–staying around 8%–and some even got a boost (luxury beauty, for example, is now at 10%). Most categories, however, got cut, especially for affiliates who were consistently hitting the 8.5% commissions tier. Many got reduced to 4.5% or lower, and a few (like wine) even got reduced to 0%.
For example, you choose Bluehost Affiliate Program and promote it on your website. Whenever a visitor to your site, clicks on the affiliate link and buys Bluehost web hosting service, you will get a commission on that sale. It is called Affiliate Marketing.
Private Jet Charters are exploding right now as commercial air travel gets more regulated and troublesome. Affluent people are choosing to rent an entire aircraft instead of individual seats and… (more…)
When visitors clicked on the associate’s website to go to Amazon and purchase a book, the associate received a commission. Amazon was not the first merchant to offer an affiliate program, but its program was the first to become widely known and serve as a model for subsequent programs.
Hey Jennifer, I don’t really know much about MOBE as I haven’t had personal experience myself but in terms of paying for a programs, i’ve had experience with the Six Figure Mentors. They teach people marketing and entrperneurial mindset stuff that I found invaluable. They have a paid tiered membership system that can be promoted on an affiliate basis. What sort of affiliate business are you looking to set up?
If your site is about children’s books and you promote car insurance, at best you’ll look like you don’t know what you’re doing. At worst, you’ll be branded a spammer. Once you develop a bad reputation as a spammer or an “out to make a quick buck” type of affiliate marketer, it’s incredibly difficult to go back.
In April 2008 the State of New York inserted an item in the state budget asserting sales tax jurisdiction over Amazon.com sales to residents of New York, based on the existence of affiliate links from New York–based websites to Amazon. The state asserts that even one such affiliate constitutes Amazon having a business presence in the state, and is sufficient to allow New York to tax all Amazon sales to state residents. Amazon challenged the amendment and lost at the trial level in January 2009. The case is currently making its way through the New York appeals courts.
Hi Jamie! Awesome post. I just started an online shop (Ukulele and accessories) using Shopify and drop shipping with Aliexpress. Do you recommend I join an affiliate network to help drive traffic to my site? Thanks a lot for you input!
Great resource – my favourite are Clickbank, Escalate, and CommissionJunction! You can basically find all the affiliate programs you need with these three companies; although, they do have limitations (not great communication).
