Finding interesting products or services for customers and affiliate programs to join might seem a little challenging at the beginning, but the reality is that there are plenty of online affiliate ventures you can choose. If you are looking for a program to sign up, here are four of the best options in 2019.
Selling products produced by product-driven companies is one of the avenues affiliate marketers choose. There are plenty of networks specialized in this direction, but we would like to talk about two of them: Awin and Amazon.
Considered to be one of the biggest affiliate networks, Awin is an affiliate marketing platform with over 15,000 advertisers, 200,000 active publishers, and more than $138 million in sales generated in 2018. Because of its popularity, Awin does enjoy a lot of big brands offering a wide range of products and services. However, bear in mind that some of them are very selective when it comes to choosing an affiliate, so you must make sure that you understand this field properly.
Why just buy things from Amazon when you can join the Amazon Associates program? One of the main advantages has to do with the wide variety of products available. It’s also free to join and once accepted to the program, you’ll be able to sell any Amazon product, including some from third parties. There are commissions not only for the specific product advertised but for any other purchase made at Amazon for 24 hours per referral by the same client. We must mention, however, that the company had changed its terms over the years and now commissions are smaller as compared to four or five years ago.
Did you know that the elearning industry is projected to reach $325 billion by 2025? There’s a lot of potential for affiliate marketers in the online courses sector and one of the most popular platforms to join is Clickbank.
With 200 million customers, Clickbank is without a doubt one of the major affiliate marketing platforms. Featuring a wide variety of products across many categories (particularly eBooks), it represents one of the most popular choices for people who already get started in this industry. Creating an account and signing up is free, plus commissions are relatively higher as compared to other platforms. It’s worth mentioning, however, that the real challenge is dealing with this platform is finding high-quality products to advertise.
The democratization of the financial industry has led to many people getting involved in trading or investing. Some types of affiliates in the finance sector include forex, but now most of the brokerage companies have designed affiliate programs for customers wanting to work with them in order to bring new customers. Since there are no products just services involved, people are generally attracted by these programs because of the high potential commissions.
