2010 Top 10 Affiliate Networks
There are so many opportunities available to earn income from your blog and the best way is to use affiliate networks from a variety of categories. Get the list of the best to promote online.
I have tried many of these and they work really well, how it works is you want to pick a product that you want to write content about and promote using your blogs or social media sites. Internet marketers have found success with these programs because there is a steady stream of unique visitors who can use these various products.
The categories range from: Business, Education, Electronics, Entertainment, Food and Drink, Health and Beauty, Home and Garden, Sports and Recreation and Telecommunications.
Many of the educational training programs for vocational schools are part of an affiliate program that pays on cost per action. The user is required to enter their name and phone number which is pretty easy to get them to do.
ClickBank is another professional affiliate network with excellent stats and tracking. Easy to use and pays every two weeks.
ClickBank is slightly different from the other networks in that it deals mainly with digital download products. The commissions from ClickBank are usually much higher than the other networks, around 40% to 50% or more.
ClickBank has over 10,000 products but keep in mind, info-marketing products will have stiff competition from all the savvy and well established Internet marketers promoting these same products. Consider youself warned!
