I have also used Commission Junction and Cafe Press quite a bit for “hard products”. Not all vendors will accept you, and the commissions are much lower…but they do have some great products that can fit well into your niches that are outside of internet marketing.
I usually try to go for the higher priced
products and those seem to sell just as well
as lower priced ones (depending on your niche
market and audience). The higher price helps
to make up for the lower commissions.
They don’t pay out until you’ve reached a
certain amount (I think it’s only $50) at
Commission Junction but they are extremely reliable and trusted.
It’s an especially good option if you have
seasonal websites and do seasonal promotions for your niches.
Thanks Reed well put as usual. I would also like to add my Two penneth and say be wary of outlandish claims. You will need to work at it, whatever Your choice. So once again I agree with Reed regarding pick a program that appeals to Your own interests. Regards Graham.
I joined to this affiliate program because is giving to me free ppc every month. Also i got a special script to create my own affiliate program!.First time since i started working online 2 years ago i found something that really works. I believe that everybody who is struggling in any affiliate program will find here the solution. Believe me, I been scammed in some programs and is hard to continue after that, but there are people who really are making money and now I working hand by hand with one of them.
Choosing the right program is important but what is equally important is HOW you promote it.
If you are a master of promoting products, you can promote pretty much anything you want.
I mean you have a product that everybody is promoting and making a ton of commisions but if you have no clue on how to promote that product effectively, you won’t make a dime. You are dead on the water.
I loved your blog, for i have a few horror stories .but i do agree affiliate marketing
gives you a certin freedom to be your own boss
if you know what to do,i have not found the right company yet ,i`ve been robbed and i`ve made a few dollars ,im still searching
I second Commission Junction (http://cj.com). We just found out today, for example, that Carbonite.com is on CJ.com and pays a whopping 40% commission on a $50/year product! Place banners, and after a 15 day free trial, if they upgrade, you make $10 / year ! Not bad!

It’s not just the right product, in my opinion every affiliate program have standard to their product and I believe that those product are passing the QA/QC test from the manufacture, what we should always check is, their history in business, how long have they been in affiliate business, how much is the commission conversions, how much affiliate they have around the globe, one good thing as yesterday somebody sent me an affiliate program, so I checked their back links, and still new in my opinion, the features, scheme, promotions etc looks convincing, at the end since they are new I didn’t join them

I’m using Clickbank at the moment and some individual affiliate programs. I think it’s a good idea not to spread out to thin when your starting out. Once you’ve got the hang of it then you’ll know how to promote more than 1 product more effectivley
I too like the Affiliate Networks that give you tools such as email messages, banners that you can use to seel the product.
Do you have an affiliate program?
Finding the right program is of the utmost importance, It’s not bad enough that thieves are getting your commissions when you do manage to sell something, You don’t need some unscrupulous Marketer setting you up for a fall
in the beginning. Paydotcom.com is a good service along with Clickbank and they have a wide variety of products. I am sure there are many more but be selective and research heavily before making that leap of faith. Have a Wonderful Day, Timothy Millar
Timothy Millars last blog post..Paid to Read update #3 Jacob mails
Yes , all good ‘info’ .
Now ,where are the programs/ products
that I and others can feel honest and
happy to promote / sell .
E-books ? = NO .. The information is FREE if you
know how to search for it ..
And many of these hyip programs ?? Dreamers..
I have made a few dollars as an afilliate but nowheres near where I think I should be so I’m all ears as far as learning the ropes in this business. Clickbank is a good program for products.Be sure to go for higher commissions and high gravity.
Again, good stuff. You gave 10 very well thought out points about choosing the right affiliate program or network.
And all comments that were added also contributed to the idea of choosing the right affiliate program.
Ashers last blog post..More Money To Spend Redefined
Another good blog. I am still experimenting with a broad spectrum of products and varying commissions. Some merchants give you all kinds of tools to work with and a number of them show interest in helping you out. These are the ones I put out more effort for. I do believe that I am being scammed on some of them. Some I will drop after a month or so.
Reed, I’ve tried a lot of CPA Networks like CJ.com, BeFree, Coprosper, Adreporting.com and there is one ‘ROI Rocket.’ Frankly, I prefer the smaller in-house programs of companies like Adlandpro, Sitesell, HD Publishing and Professional Cash – ooops, that’s really through Clickbank.com. Clickbank is great for quick niche-choosing and adding income(s) into one weekly/fortnightly direct Deposit. Digital products suit me better because of their commissions being 50-75% usually!
Hey, How’s it going? you should do some research, before you commit to a program. And it should be something you can market in your sleep, or you have common interest in.

You are right, choosing the right affiliate program is crucial… You pointed out some good factors to consider when joining an affiliate program.
When you join a good affiliate program if you put effort into it and you work hard you’ll make money.

Personally I’ve not had much luck with CJ. Clickbank works much better for me. I guess Digital Products somehow fare better in my case.

Very interested in getting started in Internet Marketing. So skeptical as to who I can trust!
Need a legitimate business to get involved with. Don’t have time for someone who just wants to separate me from my hard earned money!
Any ideas from someone out there?
Nice Post Reed. Affiliate marketing Can be very rewarding but you have to do your homework. It has allowed my wife and I to turn a hobby into a full time work at hom career.

I love reading your posts. This one on affilaiate marketing and picking the right products as well as the right “service” is great.
Personally I have only used CJ and Clickbank very much but I am sure that there are other good ones out there. I have heard of Cafe Press, but haven’t really done anything with them yet. Probably will at some time thoough.
I also watch to see if places I am buying from have affiliate programs, after all if I buy from them and I am happy with them then I feel more comfortable with promoting their products and services. In fact I stareted with CJ because I bought some cycling gear and the place I bought from had an affiliate program run through CJ so I signed up.
Hey Reed, you have allways very good articles in your blog. I’m trying with CB.
Have a nice day

Hi Reed, good post. I belong to a few CPA networks, because they pay better and are more reliable than non-CPA internet companies. My successes have come from Hydra and Incentaclick. Both have products that people are interested in and they pay well!

Paul Livingstons last blog post..The Internet Marketing Success Formula…can it work?
Now the next step. Look for other related affiliate programs and products that you can piggyback on. Remember that not all of your traffic is going to be attracted to your primary offer so have alternative offers that could capture the fringe market.
Great post Reed!
As usual you covered the basics very well.I have been asked this question and did not realy know how to answer with out giving recomendations.Please continue with the good information as it is sometimes hard to come by.
Stay on course,

One point I see newbies making is going after the programs and networks that promise to pay you from the start. I mean it is good to see those cents in your paypal or bank account. But since mot of us are going for the big bucks and since everyone can go for the big bucks I suggest you go for the well reputed programs. There are numerous good reasons why most programs want you to earn +20$, +50$ or +100$. Also be wary if a program has a payout demand of thousands of dollars.
@Jane yes going after reliable and trusted places it best
@Graham agreed if it sounds too good to be true STAT AWAY!
@Alfonso yeah it’s hard to get back at this after you’ve been scammed but to this day I still get scammed so you must keep plugging away
@Diandra keep coming back for more tips
@Ari it’s nice to see something with a track record
@Luca that’s something that happened to me is I got involved in a bunch of different things at once. I make a lot more money when I focus on one.
@Profit here’s one for one of my products pays 100% http://www.thetrafficsecret.com/jv.html
@Timothy I agree you need to find the correct program to promote
@Laurence I still prefer information marketing… yes more things can be found for free but you are saving someone time and that’s why they pay for it
@lASBENOLS agreed. You can get there
@Geoff I love digital products too
@Michael yes do your due diligence
@Anna he’s doing well thanks 🙂
@Free it can depend on your market. I’ve made more from CB but I don’t really promote many CJ things
@Mike keep coming back to this blog for more tips
@Wayne keep up the great work
@Urpo thanks keep us posted
@TeasesTips keep up the great work
@Paul yeah I love that too thanks
@Rick will do thanks
@Jussi good point be wary of those that require a high amount.
