For you to understand what the best of the affiliate marketing program is, this article gives you a simple summary. It will lead you to finally understanding that you have overlooked the best and it is high time you start paying heed to it.

If you joined an affiliate program that enables you to sign up for free and you refer others that are also registering for free you may not earn any money. Pay attention to the payment structure of any program. How frequently are checks sent out and is there a minimum amount you must make before you get paid? If you have to make $100 before you receive a payment, you could be waiting a while.

Take a look at this Scenario:

You join a program that requires you $49 a month to be a paid affiliate and pays you $23.50 a month for every member you sign up that will pay the $49 each month for the products and services the company provides. If You sign up 10 people that pay $49 a month and you earn $23.5 from each person. You will receive a $235 check each month as long as all ten remain as paying affiliates.

One year scenario:

In this scenario, I assume you refer only 10 referrals per month working with a well-paying affiliate program.

First month: 10 referrals = $235.

Second month: 10 referrals + 10 first months = 20 referrals = $470

Third month: 10 first month +10 second month +10 third months = 30 referrals = $705 .

Twelve months: 120 referrals = $2820.

Now think about it for a minute. What if you were referring 50 per month which is more than possible. How will your income look like in 5 years? You probably have the answer.

There are various renowned affiliate programs available, truly so many, it can be challenging to choose one. What is the solution to this difficulty? Accept it or not, the solution is pretty simple.


If you want to be a good affiliate and produce more good affiliates don’t rely on your thoughts. You need to understand what you are doing.

If you are new to affiliate programs you should be looking for help from people who you to trust. They can provide you the head up on the affiliate programs they trust. Be Never scared to ask for guidance. Trusted friends should be giving you accurate information. Go to Google and search the available -“affiliate programs forum” you will be provided with a list of forums that you can engage in. You can read the information that others have left.

Read through the posts to know how forum is conducted so that you won’t go against there policies. Forums are an important source of valuable resources.

In conclusion, you need to research the programs you are interested in and be certain to go to forums where like-minded people hang out and ask many questions.

Look for affiliate programs that have a great support system and are simple to master.

  1. Hi there and thanks for a very informative post on affiliate programs. I am trying to get into this realm and am finding it difficult to get visitors to my sites. I have recently set up with Amazon affiliate sites, 7 in all. Trouble is, Amazon has dropped the bombshell that their commission rates have been more than cut in half. For my niches, pets and magnesium, the commission cuts are devastating. Have you got any ideas for me to increase traffic to my site and hopefully improve my already meagre income? Thanks.

    • Amazon, once the best affiliate program is now the worse, but don’t be scared there are still a lot of other affiliate programs that pay well. thanks

  2. Hello Mansoor, I think you’ve done a good job explaining affiliate programs. It the reason why I joined W.A. It is one of a kind. I appreciate the way you explained it as simple as it can be. Any one who should read your post will understand how affiliate programs work. Wish you the best of success.

  3. I have looked into a variety of programs t earn a little side money from home.  Unfortunately, I have tried some programs that what it seemed like they were more interested in making money for themselves instead of helping me.   As you can imagine it was very refreshing to come across your site and this post.  I appreciate the time and effort that you have put into setting this site up and providing the information that you compiled.   I am pushing seventy – while not computer illiterate, I am definitely of a prior generation.   Do you think that even someone of my age could make a go of Affiliate Marketing?

  4. Oh wow! This is really good to see here and I thank you so much for sharing this post here.  Well! Getting to know about the very best affiliate program is a great thing and thank you so much for sharing here. Getting to know of the best affiliate programs would open the eyes to what deserves the right energy and what ought to be done to maintain seriousness

  5. Thanks so much for writing this post. It can be difficult to find good affiliate programs that are worth your time and hard work in the amount they pay. I am one of many who is disappointed by the recent downturn in Amazon’s commission percentages and it definitely has me looking elsewhere. Thanks for the tips on finding a good program. While it would be nice, I have yet to see the 100% affiliate commission rate you mention in the post. Do you have any examples of this?

    • I have seen several products on Click Bank and commission junction that are giving 100% commission but such commission is not recurring. 

  6. Wealthy Affiliate (WA) lives to its reputation. The best platform in affiliate marketing. The training is very extensive. A lot of tools to jump-start a newbie and a lot of follow-ups to sustain its member’s success. I tried other programs and by far, WA is tops. The $49 pays for itself. Aside from the training materials, the platform that allows multiple websites is superb and well worth the investment.

  7. Yes, everyone needs to do their due diligence when it comes to finding online programs they want to make money from. There are quite a few out there and it can be difficult to discover one that is best for you. Not everyone will make money from them, they either don’t do it the right way or give up too early. The prospects of making a passive income can be exciting, though one has to realize the amount of unpaid effort at the start. This along with up front and ongoing costs are things people don’t expect, it’s not always as easy as it seems.

    • One should acquire knowledge about the program and the industry as a whole. Then hard work and patience.

  8. Thanks for a very thorough and easy to understand overview of affiliate programs and how to evaluate them. I must admit it did not occur to me to join affiliate forums. Clearly this is an excellent way to build mutually beneficial relationships with other affiliate marketers. I would be most particularly interested in finding other affiliate marketers in my niche which is personal finance with focus on investment savings and retirement. Now that I check I am surprised to find that some of these networks charge a subscription fee – that looks like a red flag, while others are free. Thank you for this very informative post. Best regards, Andy

  9. Hi Magulu, as an affiliate marketer I have found great interest in this article, and its been really thrilling to see such detail in one post. There are a lot of affiliate programs out there and mostly, we go for some that are not worthy enough because of lack of knowledge. How ere affiliate program should be considered because of its commission and most importantly how good the products are and how marketable they are.

    • True, the product should be good, with a reasonable commission and easy to market. Thanks Benson

  10. It is a helpful article for me to understand more about affiliate marketing program.  The scenario you have presented is a good analysis how one of the program works.

    I have joined Amazon affiliate program and promoted some of their products.  But the commission rates have greatly deducted.  This is a disaster to me.  I am trying hard to shift the product promotion to other affiliate programs and hope this will improve my income.  May you give me some suggestions?  Thank you.


    • Hello, Dolbe.

      Thanks for commenting, Amazon is no longer a safe place for affiliates, Its time to change to other relevant affiliate programs.

  11. Hi, you’ve done a good job explaining affiliate programs. The reason why I joined W.A. is because, in my own research  I found WA had the best training program, was not charging $1500 up front to join and had a superior training program. Any one who should read your post will understand how affiliate programs work. I want to thank you for your information as it has reinforced I made the right choice.

  12. Hi! I can agree with you that making money online could truly replace your regular job in couple of years. Safer thing to do is choose a niche that you have interest in and not necessary niche that could get your money because where an interest is there is bigger chance tonearn a lot from it. But trying to succed is a long way, not a one time click and get tich scheme. Be determinate and concentrated and success will come.

  13. Since I, too, have an online business, was interested in your article.  I do have some good affiliate programs, but not enough of them  Since Amazon lowered their affiliate commission payment percentage, it’s hardly worth it to use their affiliate links any more…not if you want to make a living.

    Therefore, I’ll be researching to find other affiliate companies that pay more.

    I do like affiliate marketing.  It’s such an advantage to promote products that you don’t have to package and ship.  It is a great venue for working online, and I congratulate you for promoting it.

  14. Hi and thank you for your review. I’m very interested in what you’re saying! I’ve been looking at becoming an affiliate marketer, to be honest it as baffled me.  After reading your review about the best affiliate programs,  it seems like a no brainer.  I have one question, would you reccomend I look at becoming an affiliate for a company such as Amazon?

    • Thanks, Derek.

      Amazon was once one of the best affiliate programs but it is no longer. Amazon doesn’t value the affiliates and they heavily reduce commission without considering the hard work put in by affiliates to drive traffic to their site. Besides that, Amazon has the shortest cookie in the industry that lasts only 24 hours. This implies that once you send people to Amazon and don’t buy within 24 hours, even if they buy later you won’t be paid. so if you are new to affiliate marketing amazon is not the best alternative.  

  15. Hello Mansoor

    I have been dabbling in Affiliate marketing too and I can attest to your sentiments. What is important is that you stick to it as hard work pays off. It’s not a scheme for getting rich quick. It takes hard work and dedication like in any other business.

    What I have realized is that the traditional affiliate marketing way of spamming somebody’s inbox with offers is like an irritating mosquito when I’m trying to sleep. I have found that I take notice of emails that talk to me as a person, not the bombardments or the Automation bots that want to push the offer down my through.

    What I want to say is that helping people like you are doing is a breath of fresh air from the normal affiliate marketing ways.

    All my Best Tania

  16. Thanks Mugalu, this is a very explicit explanation of Affiliate marketing. I really like how affiliate marketing works, especially that you don’t have to spend capital on the product. I have two websites and some affiliate programs registered on both of them but I don’t seem to be making any money. What could I be doing wrong? 

    • Sorry, Juliet, Try to answer these questions you will get the answer to your question.

      1. How old is your website? – Your visitor won’t trust you till when you prove to be worth the trust.

      2. What training are you following?- you can’t move alone, you need to follow a given Training 

      3. what is the traffic volume of your site? You must have enough traffic for you to make some money(implement SEO)

      4. what products are you promoting? Is the product appealing to your visitors?

      5. How broad is your niche? Try to narrow down your niche

      6 Are the products you promote related to your niche.

      7. Are providing value to your visitors – If you are not solving any problem for your visitor they won’t stay on your site.

  17. Hey nice article you have there, the importance of affiliate marketing in modern business cannot be over emphasize, due to its numerous advantage on the productivity of an organization. The greatest benefit of affiliate marketing is that it create a market for does who don’t have a product by selling other companys product to earn a commission, and also the referral bonus is quite impressive.

  18. Thank you for explaining in simple terms the world of affiliate marketing. I have recently joined WA and have been learning as much as i can, and so far enjoying it. I just wish content writing can get easier other than practice and practice. I think anyone can do affiliate marketing but they have to be prepared to do the hard work and that means also writing meaningful content. I think you have done a great job, and I hope I can learn from your website! 

  19. Affiliate marketing is a very lovely field just not for everybody because it requires you to work and know the right channels to obtain the right connections. I love how you broke it down where the commissions are concerned. Residual income is the way to go in obtaining that financial freedom we all look forward to.

  20. Hi, 
    Thank you for your article ! I also use Wealthy Affiliate but didn’t get any paid referrals until now. Some people register for free and it gives you only 1$, so they have to subscribe to the premium version for you to get real commission. However, it’s hard for me to convert my visitors to the premium version. I didn’t think of the forum that I could engage in. I will definitely try that. Did it really work for you ? Do you have any others advice to have a better conversion ?

    • Within wealthy affiliate, you can decide to promote other products but if you decide to promote wealthy affiliate then follow the Affiliate BootCamp training. Click here

  21. Those projections on the earnings from commissions at Wealthy Affiliates look very attractive. Very promising indeed. I am a Home depot affiliate and would you believe these people are only paying me 2%!! I thought it was 8% but after i made a sale and did a little more digging i realized that my product was listed under the group for 2% commissions. 

    Amazon pays a bit better but I find i get more sales from Home depot. 

    Wealthy affiliate commissions are very high compared to these sites. Quick question. Does Wealthy affiliate have a list of affiliate programs that article writers can connect to? Or can other people within the community help with suggestions for this after joining?



    • You will find thousands of affiliate programs within the community. The training, support team, and other members will guide you through the process of selecting one or more. Thanks.

  22. I am interested to make more money online using the affiliate programs you mentioned. They are several affiliate programs, which one do you recommend and which forum should I join to get more information.

    I am sure the internet provides lots of opportunities for us to make money however we need to ensure we join the “correct” program so that we can channel our resources to make this a success.

    Awaiting your reply on this. Marc Ho.

  23. Nice work you did putting up such a nice and informative article much. It can be difficult to find good affiliate programs that are worth your time and hard work in the amount they pay. I am one of many who is disappointed by the recent downturn in Amazon’s commission percentages and it definitely has me looking elsewhere, I have hence been searching for other affiliate programs that I could make good percentages from their sales and I hope to try out some of your recommendations..
    I would say your article is a depression lighter. Thanks and I look forward to see more of your post

  24. I really found your post to be informative and easy to understand. I have been a WA member for a few months now, and I still learned more about affiliate marketing from you post. I didn’t even know the payment structure for signing other people up. I will take quite a bit of what I read into advisement. 

  25. I am interested in adding affiliate offers to my website.  Do you think that the offer should strictly be along the theme of the niche my site is promoting? With the recent changes in the Amazon selling program, I am thinking that it would take a while to make enough to cash out a paycheck with physical products from them.  Affiliate returns seem better.  Do you change your niche or maybe just sit up a site for a particular affiliate offer?  Or do I keep digging for an offer that better suits my niche?

    As the world changes and marketing follows those changes do you see yourself sticking with Affiliate offers or will you be moving into micro-niches?  Do you think that people will continue to spend as they have been, or do you see a slowdown when the world begins to reopen for business, and we move into the latter half of 2020?  Thanks, Sami

    • Not very strict but relevant to the theme, you shouldn’t be static if Amazon doesn’t work for you there are very many other programs you can join. Thanks.

  26. New to the affiliate marketing industry and not know so much about the income potential. You have really put some light on that right now and I am more than happy to have gone through this fantastic post of yours. You are really good at this. I think I should join the amazon affiliate program, that’s the most popular out there right now. Thanks.

    • Thanks, Henderson

      Yes, you can join Amazon but you should also find other relevant affiliate programs because amazon’s commission is very low as they reduced it recently. 

  27. Thank you for the article. Finding a good affiliate program that pays well for the product that you promote is very important  .It also very hard to find a good affiliate program that are very upfront about how it works. The one you have described here sounds very interesting. Thank you for the info.

  28. Very interesting and eye-opener perspective. Shouldn’t affiliate programs be free to join? Or are we talking about just the ones that you’re not really selling other people’s articles and you’re just inviting people to joint along with you to earn money? Also, what if you don’t have success when it regardsyour visitors to sign up for your referral program, you would only end up paying for than what you’d be earning?

    • Affiliate programs can of different kinds, some involve selling products, and others can be just signing up new members to a given training and more.
