    Affiliate Programs

    Hello I am a beginner is the sphere of online business and need an advise. What affiliate program can one suggest me to use? I am thinking about placing ikobo’s affiliate link at my website (as I am going to use this service for accepting payments). Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    I have had good results with Amazon.com. Still it depends on your site and your traffic.

    GoogleAds are normally good as it doesn't matter what your market is - they adapt to whatever your content is.

    If you want several options try signing up at cj.com or linkshare.com. Then just apply to the programs that look to be a good fit for your site/audience.

    Hi Frenki,

    Any other suggestions?
    As far as the question of what’s the "best" affiliate program or where should I start - well that's a big question but the answer can be defined by YOU!

    1) What is your current site about and who are your visitors? What are they interested in? Find products and services that will appeal to them and THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX! For instance if you have a site about travel, don't just promote hotel and airline affiliate programs, add travel insurance, Amazon books about travel and Luggage.

    2) What are you passionate about??? What do you know a lot about? If you can find an affiliate programs that tie into your interests or hobbies you will be ahead of the game!!! WHY? Because it can take some time to generate income and if it's something you are interested in it will give you the incentive to keep building more pages PLUS you can add valuable content to your site based on your knowledge of the subject.

    3) Make a list of all the potential products and services that you think may be a good fit for either your existing site or a new niche site based on #2.

    Go to Commission Junction, LinksShare, BeFree, ShareaSale or one of the affiliate directories like Refer-it and find several programs then compare:

    A) The honesty & integrity of the program. Are they parasite-free, do they have affiliate-centered management, good record of paying on time? *This can be hard to figure out unless you search on Affiliate Boards.

    B) Commission – Could be per sale or per lead
    C) Cookie Length - This is how long sales are tracked and credited to you
    D) Good merchant web site design & navigation that will convert your leads to sales


    Now to answer the question “What affiliate program can one suggest me to use?" Well, it depends and as you can see there is no easy answer, but I hope I have given you some guidelines and tips to ponder.

    This was a good thread and needed a bump but your comments have 0 to do with the topic.
