One of the most popular options is the affiliate marketing. Most of the online marketers start with reputable programs like Amazon affiliates program or Clickbank but these are not the only options. Ok, let’s see below how to find an affiliate program starting from the most obvious choices.

Ok, let’s see below how to find an affiliate program starting from the most obvious choices.
Amazon is a well known online retailer and it has an interesting affiliate program called Amazon Accosiates. One of the main advantages of Amazon Associates is that it converts more than any other similar program but it has very low commissions (4%-10%) in comparison to other affiliate programs.
Many people ask how to find good products to recommend to their visitors. Simply, search your keywords on Amazon and choose products with many and good reviews. The best option is to try these products before recommending them.
When you register on Amazon Accosiates they may not approve your website. It happens sometimes but if you build your website with the way of Wealthy Affiliate you are not going to have any problems.
Clickbank is a huge affiliate network with both physical and digital products. Like Amazon Accosiates many beginners on affiliate marketing start with Clickbank. Instead of Amazon, Clickbank has bigger commissions (until 75%) but it is more difficult to make your first sale. You must also be very careful with the products you recommend from Clickbank because sometimes they do not worth your readers’ money.
When I want to find a good Clickbank product in my niche, I compare them with Gravity. The higher the Gravity is, the more affiliates sell this product. After finding a high Gravity product, I search for some reviews on the internet. If the reviews are positive, I buy it or recommend it on my websites.
There is not any approval process, once you have registered you can create your affiliate links.
Another one great affiliate network. Usually is the first place where I look for products to promote. The main difference between ShareASale and the other two programs above is that every product owner or company inside this network has its own approval process and commissions. Some of them will approve your website instantly but some others have a difficult approval process. If you do not have a website they will reject you most of the times. Again, if you have built your website with WA’s way you will be fine.
Most of the times, you will find trustworthy programs on ShareASale but again you should check them before making your recommendations.
Private Affiliate Programs
Many ecommerce websites have their owns affiliate programs. Here are some reasons because some affiliate marketers look for private affiliate programs:
- You may not find a good product on your niche on affiliate networks
- You may look for a more profitable program
- The specific product that you want to promote does not participate in any affiliate network
- Sometimes affiliate networks ban users and websites if they make any mistake in the way they promote their products (it happens mostly to beginners)
- You want to know all the available options before making your choice
Usually, the private affiliate programs have their own resources, payment systems and commissions. A good way to find some private programs relevant to your niche is to type on Google ‘’your keyword’’ + affiliate program. You will get thousands of results in every niche so start your research.
It would be wise to check out some reviews on any product you may choose to avoid any scams or low quality products.
I can not add every affiliate program and network on this article so I showed you how I find affiliate programs and products on the affiliate networks above. If you have any question or any affiliate program to discuss, leave your comment below.
