Affiliate Marketing Networks and You
OK to get started I figured I would catch you up on what I have previously done. IF you are going to do Affiliate Marketing you will need to align yourself with a few Affiliate Marketing Networks. What are these you ask yourselves and is this complicated.
Good News – not complicated! What are Affiliate Networks?
“An affiliate network acts as an intermediary between publishers (affiliates) and merchant affiliate programs. … For affiliates, services and benefits can include simplifying the process of registering for one or more merchant affiliate programs, reporting tools, access to product API’s and payment aggregation.” – Wikipedia
They make it easy for you to find products and services to sell and some even give you training in order to learn Affiliate Marketing easier. Below are the ones I commonly work with. Within these you should be able to find something within the niche you want to work with.
1) Maxbounty – Many CPA (Cost per action ie fill in an email or zip code and you get paid) I have not worked much with these guys but love how easy it is to get around their website. They may want to call and ask you questions and be honest with them. Tell them you are new and just starting out. They also offer Maxbounty University which will give you some hints and tricks on how to make money.
2) Clickbank – leader in digital marketing. Has lots of niche products and is a great starting point for anyone in the online marketing world. I have been paid several times from Clickbank. Always on time and in my bank account quickly. Very easy to get accepted into.
3) Commission Junction – another Company with a lot of niche products.
4) Pepperjam Network – Another one I have been paid from and happy to work with them
There are many more but these are my top four that I will be starting with.
If you try to get accepted by one do not hesitate to try others. You will get accepted to some but remember be honest with them and tell them you are just starting. Some will not accept newbies but many will.
That is our starting point for today. I will have more info tomorrow for you…..until then…..go do some good stuff!!!
